About the property

privat villa 284m², sleeping 6, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, W-LAN

Beach and boat - a dream, a combination, which is hard to find. We offer you both, without getting into the car! The villa Bayside-Beach sits on an 1100m property at the exit of a channel overlooking the bay. Being located in the best residential area of Fort Myers Beach, the fantastic and almost never ending beach is only a few minutes away.

Only in 2009 the house was refurbished with much passion to detail and resulted in a friendly upper ambient. The large, light-flooded living spaces offer a wonderful view on the heatable pool and the tropical garden.

The bar of the exclusive open kitchen with adjacent living room features a pool table and invites to chat and stay.

If you should plan a trip by boat, the open sea is hit within a few minutes. Let a beautiful day of holiday end with a drink at the pool or enjoy a picturesque sunset with a dreamlike stroll on the beach.

Outer area:: Fairly quick you’ll realize that you spend most of your time outside the house. That’s why we attached great importance to the garden, the pool and its surrounding area. In the garden you’ll find palm trees citruses and other tropical greenery. In summer it’s “Mango Time” so you should lighten the huge mango tree from some of its tasteful fruits.

On the big roofed terrace you’ll find some nice teakwood furniture with 6 chairs. During midday sufficient amount of shade is provided.

The pool is big enough to sport around. Next to the pool 4 sunbeds are available and invite to eat your mango while lazing in the sun. Since we have no cage you can enjoy a clear view on the bay. With some luck you will witness dolphins swimming by.

In the evening you’ll appreciate the warmth of Florida while having a real BBQ with famous American steaks. Alternatively you can enjoy the pool being illuminated with selectable colors or simply reward yourself with a drink on a sunbed watching the starry sky.

Island life and shopping: The villa is located in the centre oft the island. A super market (Publix) is distant only a few minutes. Additionally there is a place to hire bicycles or scooters as well as various small shops. If you want to go out dining there is plenty of possibility in the immediate vicinity; even to sit outdoors which is not so usual in Florida.

The snow-white beach – about 11km long – is reached within a few minutes. At the beach you will gaze upon the famous islands of Sanibel and Captiva.

Just a few kilometres separate you from the superb beaches of Lovers Key with the Carl E. Johnson State Park. Here you can expect lonely beaches, clear sea waters and plenty of sea shells.

You can get to Fort Myers or Naples with the car within 30 minutes. It’s worth it checking out the Edison Museum in Fort Myers.

Within 15 minutes driving time you get to Tanger Outlet Mall. It’s also nice to visite the new Coconut Piont Mall or the Miromar Outlet Mall both close to Bonita.

Information for boater: You would like to rent a motor boat? Go for it! No boat driving license is needed. You can even pick up your friends or friends from the villa’s boat dock. The location of villa Bayside-Beach is characterized by its perfect bridgeless link to the open sea. In less than a minute you are in Estero Bay already and here you go. Since our house is located on the island’s centre, you can take either the northern or the southern waterway scooting off to the Golf of Mexico. The choice is yours…

Several Marinas serve Fort Myers Beach: The Snook Bight Marina sits right behind the Publix only a few minutes away from the house. The Fish Tale Marina is about 2km south. If you wish so, the boat will be shipped right to the house’s dock from where you immediately can start your adventure.

If you only want to start your marine career, the pontoon boat with 115PS is a good choice. Have an easy time feeling the refreshing fair winds while cruising the bay and discover some of the surrounding islands.

About Wilma und Manfred Fleischmann

Feel free to contact us at +49 151 1050 1745 , www.baysidebeach.deWe, Wilma - born 1958 in Amsterdam - and Manfred - born 1951 in Vienna - have two grown up sons and live close to Frankfurt am Main.

Shortly before our elderly son joined school in1992, we spent our first holiday in Florida. At that time it was a short round trip with a beach holiday in Fort Myers planned for the last days. Actually it was coincidence that we came here since the Pink Shell Hotel was just recommended to us.

Thereafter we were planning almost every vacation in the Pink Shell Resort. It somehow felt like a second home to us: the best combination of picturesque landscape, shopping possibilities as well as good infrastructure.

Wilma und Manfred Fleischmann purchased this house in 2008

Why Wilma und Manfred Fleischmann chose Mid Island

“There´s nothing better, than spending a day at Fort Myers Beach'.

We never thought of looking for some holiday house in Cape Coral for instance, though less expensive, since we preferred a location close to the beach; some day we´d like to own a nice little boat as well...

After some long time of searching, we finally found this property which comes very close to our perfect picture.

Sometime we grab our bikes, going to observe a wonderful sunset at the beach.

What makes this house unique

Fort Myers Beach is charming.

It's casual! It's beachy! It's Fort Myers Beach!

Owner's Response: Chris and Clare, thank you so much for comment. We are absolutely pleased to read that you have made yourself at home and enjoy all the bright sides the house offers you. We just left some time ago but already miss the 5 min beach walks and exotic flowered garden with chilled out atmosphere at the dock. Enjoy your holidays, Wilma and Manfred.

Wonderful home to spend your holiday in

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely home from the 3rd July - 17th July 2009 and were very sad to come back to England. My family and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to holiday in Florida - Fort Myers Beach. This was the first time we have rented a home in Florida, usually we rent a hotel suite. However, after our wonderful stay at this home I don't think we will rent a hotel room again.

The owners are lovely and kept in contact with us in the lead up to our holiday. Wilma was even kind enough to sort out the delivery of a rented baby cot for us to use. The owners have also appointed a local house manager who is in contact with you should you ever need any help with the house.

The house is beautifully decorated and has everything you need to enjoy your time there. The pool is lovely and we loved spending time in it with our 18 month old daughter.

The gardens are lovely and the mango fruit tree was delicious.

On a few occassions we were lucky enough to see dolphins in the water beside the house. That was an amazing experience.

The house is within 5 minutes walk of the lovely white sand beach. We spent most days by the pool because it was such a lovely place to be.

The outlook from the house to the bay is beautiful and it is such a peaceful area.

The Master bedroom is huge with a large walk in closet and large ensuite bathroom. The balcony from this room has spectacular views of the bay to wake up every morning to.

The 2nd bedroom was used by my sister who loved having her own ensuite bathroom.

The 3rd bedroom has 2 single beds and was large enough for us to fit the baby cot.

The downstairs lounge area is perfect for watching a movie or reading a book on the comfy seating area. It also has WiFi internet access so we packed our laptop and emailed pictures of us on holiday to family and friends.

The kitchen has all the appliances and tools you need to make it feel like you are still at home. The utility room has a huge washing machine and tumble dryer which was perfect because I had lots of baby clothes to wash.

There is a lovely dining area by the pool as well as a barbeque grill which we enjoyed using several times.

You are only a few streets away from the local Publix supermarket to stock up on all your groceries.

You are well located to visit all that Fort Myers Beach offers from this home.

I hope that you book this home for your holiday and have as much fun as we did. I will be very jealous.

Ein Traumhaus

  • 5 of 5

Dieses Haus hat uns noch mehr geboten als wir erwartet haben. Es ist ein Traumhaus was von den Eigentümern liebevoll eingerichtet wurde. Es ist alles vorhanden was man braucht und es fehlt an nichts. Die Vermieter sind sehr nett und haben uns im Vorfeld umfangreich und vollständig informiert. Darüber hinaus funktioniert die Vorortbetreuung durch den deutschsprachigen Verwalter sehr gut.

Wer ein Haus mit Pool in strandnähe sucht findet hier alle optimalen Voraussetzungen für einen super Urlaub.

Begeistert waren wir auch von dem Manatee was uns fast täglich am Dock besuchte und die Delphine die an manchen Tagen vor dem Bootsdock mit uns spielten.

Leider waren wir nur 10 Tage vor Ort. Wir wären gern länger geblieben.

Owner's Response: Wir freuen uns über den positiven Feedback unserer Gäste. Den Strand quasi um die Ecke zu haben ist sicherlich ein "highlight", und war uns auch bei der Wahl des Hauses sehr wichtig. Delphine schwimmen öfters am Haus vorbei, wir hoffen aber, dass das Manatee unsere zukünftigen Gäste ebenfalls besucht.

" Das Beste, was uns je passiert ist "

  • 5 of 5

Fleischmanns Villa ist wirklich das Beste, was wir je an Ferienunterkünften gemietet haben und das waren schon viele weltweit. Wir waren nun zum zweiten Mal, wenn auch in anderer Konstellation, hier in Fort Myers Beach und haben uns wieder mega wohl gefühlt.

Was gibt es Schöneres als morgens mit einer Tasse Kaffee am Deck zu sitzen mit Blick aufs Wasser und Sonnenaufgang. Die Villa Bayside ist der absolute Wohlfühl- und Sehnsuchtsort für uns geworden: alles vorhanden, was man braucht, um es sich gut gehen zu lassen, sowohl im Haus als auch draußen.

Der Clou: die neue Gartendusche.

Mal eben abends mit dem Rad zum Strand, dort spazieren gehen, den Sonnenuntergang genießen und mit Glück Delfine beobachten. Manfred und Wilma sind immer zur Stelle, sollte sich mal eine Frage ergeben. Sie kümmern sich prompt um alle Belange. Danke, dass ihr dieses Traumdomizil mit uns teilt.

Sehr schönes Haus in guter Lage

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus befindet sich in einer sehr ruhigen Seitenstrasse die nur von den wenigen Anliegern genutzt wird. Der Masterschlafbereich mit Bad und Ankleidezimmer befindet sich im oberen Geschoss, dieses wurde nachträglich erweitert und hat deshalb eine "modernere" Ausstattung (Bad ist sehr hell mit 3 Fenstern, davon 2 Dachfenster).

Nach dem Hauseintritt wird durch den Blick auf den Außenbereich (Pool und Palmen) ein "wow" Gefühl erreicht. Die untere Etage ist mit vielen Details ausgestattet, man merkt hier das die Eigentümer das Haus für die eigenen Bedürfnisse ausgestattet haben. Die umfangreiche Ausstattung der schönen Küche mit tw. hochwertigen Geräten und auch die vielen Ablagemöglichkeiten zeigen das man sich hier sehr wohlfühlt. Die 2 unteren Badezimmer haben leider keine Fenster, die eigentliche Raumgröße ist als ausreichend zu bewerten.

Gemütlich ist das Wohnzimmer mit Büro, hier sind viele Fenster, auch Bodentiefe vorhanden, den Blick nach "draußen" kann ich einfach nur mit sehr schön bewerten.

Beeindruckend ist auch der Blick vom Balkon auf den Kanal mit angrenzenden Golfzugang. Man merkt, das die Eigentümer viel Wert auf einen angelegten Garten legen, für "Florida Verhältnisse" ist dieser Bereich top angelegt.

Die Bootsanlegestelle hat einen ausreichend großen Bereich auf dem sich 2 massive Holzstühle mit Fussbänken befinden. Hier haben wir gerne gesessen und den Blick auf den Kanalausgang genossen, egal zu welcher Tageszeit. Beeindruckend war das Erlebniss, das am letzten Abend 2 Delfine direkt am Steg geschwommen sind, diese Eindrücke werden wir immer in unserer Erinnerung behalten.

In der Garage befinden sich mehrere Fahrräder die sich hervorragend zum kurzen Strandweg nutzen lassen. Auch der kurze Weg zum Einkaufen im Supermarkt lässt sich damit durchführen. Zusätzlich zur Garage hat das Haus vor dem Eingangsbereich auch noch einen Fahrzeugunterstand. Intelligent ist die Nutzung des Hauseinganges, der Garage und sogar des Fahrradschlosses mit der gleichen Nummer, auch hier zeigt sich, das die Eigentümer viel Wert auf Details gelegt haben. Zusammengefasst hatten wir einen sehr schönen Urlaub an dem dieses Haus einen großen Einfluss hatte.

It´s casual, it´s beachy, it´s Fort Myers Beach!

The true holiday experience

Fort Myers Beach is situated on Estero Island, which is separated from the mainland by the Estero Bay. The about 11km of long, gently dropping beaches represent~beach life~. Even though Fort Myers Beach is a frequently visited holiday destination, it still kept its old charm.

Fort Myers Beach offers activities to everybody: Are you into lively beaching? Head to the pier area in the north with boutiques, restaurants and souvenir shops. If you still have some energy left hire a wave runner and scoot along the beach.

Are you more into relaxing? Just some minutes off the pier the beach is yours. Kick back while lazing in the sun or enjoy a swim.

At the south end the Lovers Key National Park starts. Here you find the beauty of pristine nature. Almost every day you can watch the most beautiful sunset and get enchanted by the scenic landscape.

“There´s nothing better, than spending a day at Fort Myers Beach'.

Golf: A public golf course is situated at the island’s southern end: the Bay Beach Golf Club. Experience what it’s like to swing the golf clubs in-between bay and beach with magnificent outlooks.
