Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in North Island - Seaside Cottage

2 bedrooms, 1 sleeper sofa, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 6

Welcome to the sugar white sandy beaches of Ft. Myers Beach! Prepare to unwind as you relax on your front deck and feel the balmy breeze as you watch the sun set. This lovely cottage is all about comfort and location.

And location, and location!!

The recently "upgraded" north end of the island features Bowdich State Park at the tip of this one mile strip of pristine beach. Escape the heavy beach traffic as this end of the island is not a thoroughfare. There are new sidewalks as well as a biking trail. And the beach path is literally outside of your front door!

The Seaside Cottage will sleep four in beds, and up to six people if sofa bed is used.

Unlike the large condo complexes, this is an original Floridian beach cottage that has been completely remodelled with driftwood flooring, modern kitchen, large front sun deck, and your own BBQ grill.

Furnished front deck and covered parking -- beach chairs, beach cart, and beach towels are all provided for your convenience -

There is a king bed in the master bedroom, two twins in the guest room, and a pull out sleeper sofa in the living area.

This cottage is perfect for the snowbird couple who would like to spend a few months at the beach, or for the family that would like to get away for a week. Fresh and clean, this cottage is waiting for you! A nice change from large condo complexes, this beach cottage is your home away from home.

North End location is on the quieter part of the island, and yet, within walking distance to downtown Times Square and all the shops, dining, and entertainment. Watch the sun set from your large deck. Protected parking is included.

Beach chairs, private BBQ grill, and private washer and dryer in unit for your exclusive use.

This popular cottage does fill up quickly due to the very competitive guest rates, many return guests and the ideal location -- use the "Book NOW" feature to reserve your vacation time today!!

Guestbook comments from the manager

“Super units, we really enjoyed our stay. Great location. It was nice to be able to walk to everything. We used to stay in condos but really enjoyed being able to BBQ out on the deck and watch the sunsets. This was a much more intimate feel. Not crowded. Loved all the palm trees, and wished we could take one back to Chicago with us!” S.M., Chicago, ILThank you for a great rental. My wife had tears in her eyes, she was so sad to leave. We did have a great vacation/anniversary celebration. We will highly recommend your place to the many professional people that walk into my cycle shop. F.H. Drexel Hill, PA

The time spent here was very enjoyable!

  • 5 of 5

The beds were amazing, the pillows were great. Kitchen was nice. Beautiful decor and very nice people. EVERYTHING was clean and smelled great. The beach was close, the shops and times square were close as well. You'd miss out if you didn't stay here! Better then a hotel!

My HomeAway-From Home

  • 5 of 5

"HomeAway" is exactly what I call Seaside Cottage, my "home away from home". My husband and I had our first stay here 6 years ago, and have returned every year since. There are so many places to rent on Ft. Myers Beach, but none can compare to Seaside Cottage for it's cleanliness, location, amenities, and especially the wonderful way the owners treat us. We are like family to them, and everyone that stays there says the same thing! They are attentive to every need, going above and beyond to take care of their guests. You won't fine a cleaner place to rent on the island, I'm sure. The kitchen is wonderful - top notch cookware, dishes, utensils, etc. The gas grill on the balcony is such a bonus, since we enjoy cooking the fresh fish my husband catches right there in the bay or gulf. However, if you don't want to cook, many of the best restaurants are less than a half mile away. This is a real plus so you can walk and don't have to try and find parking near Times Square. The best part about being north of the pier is you don't have to fight the traffic getting on or off the island like you do south of the pier. Heading to the beach everyday is made so easy and convenient with the chairs, umbrellas, cart and toys that are provided, and every year there seems to be new ones added, so you're never using something "old". Rosie, Susan and Jill really know how to make their guests feel at home in their home. They are the best. Thank you ladies, for caring about your guests in such a personal, thoughtful way, year after year. We will, of course, be back :)

There are so many fabulous sights to see and places to experience it is difficult to choose the highlights.

Golf anyone? There are over sixty five golf courses in a fifty mile vicinity. For 50 cents you can ride the beach trolley which will bring you from one end of seven mile Ft. Myers Beach to the other. On the far north end is Bodich Park, a beach dedicated to natural preserve. Also on the north end, just over the bridge, is downtown Times Square which is a very fun wharf area with a fishing pier, beach side casual dining, music, dancing, shopping and street performers. Kids love the playground near Times Square, the pirates ship and the homemade candy, gourmet popcorn and ice cream shop. Hop back on the trolley and travel to the south end of Ft.Myers beach and over the bridge to experience the beautiful Lover's Key State Park. Rent wave runners, parasail, mopeds, bikes and boats. Kayak tours of the bay. Mini golf, deep sea fishing and shelling!
