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.
