Perfect for us !

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family. It’s located on our favorite spot on the beach and had everything we needed and could want during our 2 week stay. Very tastefully decorated and the pool area was great as we spent most of our time at the house there. We also would like to thank you for the use of the boat lift during our stay. I can’t wait to book again next year and would definitely recommend this to anyone. Again, thank you for sharing your house with us !

A real island gem

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful week at this darling beach house. The location, pool, comfort, cleanliness and just all around cuteness, 5 stars! And the owner was wonderful to deal with, very helpful and accommodating.

I look forward to staying there again.

We had high expectations based on the listing. These were definitely surpassed.

  • 5 of 5

Tropical paradise is an understatement... 2 minutes from Santini Plaza, 10 Minutes from Publix, and most importantly, a 5 minute walk to Ft. Myers Beach! We were able to eat in, grilling up some fresh local catch, while relaxing by the pool. We had marginal weather the first 3 days of our stay, but the large covered patio was very inviting. The "guest house" was a nice touch having 2 couples on our trip. It added to the private feel of the home. We will definitely keep this property in mind when planning our next trip to FMB.

Good deal, lovely pool, great location, quiet and private

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this home. Positives were: quiet location, close to 7/11 and trolley stop, night lights in bathrooms/hall, new towels, pool toys, walking distance to pinchers, santini plaza, and CVS (where we bought a blow up tube for the pool), tile and real hardwood in the main house, comfortable furniture (beds a bid firm for our tastes), two ice makers in freezer and dispenser, iPod dock/alarm perfect to move pool side for tunes, blow dryers in main and guest cottage, lots of extra bedding, hose out back to rinse shells, feet, and sand covered shoes, and of course the pool.

Lastly, the property has a lock box that holds the keys to both cottages, so you don't have to carry a key around and worry about losing it or two parties needing entry at different times. Just leave the keys in the box and give the code to the members in your party that need it.

Norma was great to work with and was very prompt with the return of our security deposit.

We would definitely stay here again, but unfortunately it is already booked for our next planned visit in 2019.

Thanks Norma for sharing your rental home.

Perfect little getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This cozy little cottage was exactly what we were looking for! Other reviews mentioned the pull-out couch not being comfy and it was not! So our contribution to the house was a $160 memory foam mattress that we left behind in the closet! Other than that, this house is a short walk to the beach and had everything we possibly needed for our 7 night stay! I would stay here again!

Location, location in Fort Myers Beach!!! Estero Island is a seven mile island that is not attached to Fort Myers. Beautiful white sand beaches span the Gulf of Mexico shoreline. The home is just yards from one of the widest points of beach on fort Myers Beach. There are wonderful restaurants within a short distance to please all culinary appetites. Just northwest of Estero island are Sanibel and Captiva Islands. Boating, swimming, rest and relaxation are just outside your door...and don't forget the beautiful sunsets in this great location!
