About Connie Shirley

Dennis & Connie both grew up in MN. We have owned 'The Beach Cottage'since 2004 and advertised since that time. We just now transitioned over to VRBO. We own three homes in the small 'Key West' feel gated neighborhood on the North end of Ft. Myers Beach.

Connie Shirley purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Connie Shirley chose Fort Myers Beach

This location is KEY as it is easily acccessible to be able to get onto and off the island during peak season. It is also perfect to be able to walk to all the 'action', as well as relax in peace and quiet if that is your liking.

What makes this cottage unique

The location of this property is a benefit because of the ease in getting on/off the island during peaks season.

Perfect location and close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

AMAZING! We rented the cottage along with the Beach House (#566650) and it was perfect for extra living space. Since we had a larger group, the cottage was a great compliment to our trip. Very clean and nice! Working with Connie was great, and it was an easy experience. I would recommend this to anyone looking for extra space to go along with the larger Beach House, or a nice experience with your spouse or significant other. Perfect location!

The Perfect Place to Enjoy Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting the cottage for 9 years now and plan to continue coming back. It is a wonderfully cozy cottage right on the beach with bright, beachy decor. Having breakfast out on the deck looking at the ocean is a must. Time Square is a short walk down the beach (or street, if you prefer) to get to many restaurants and lots of shopping. And above all, Connie is a dream to work with. She is readily available if you have any questions. We would highly recommend the cottage to anyone. You will love it!

Steps from the ocean... Absolutely awesome rental...

  • 5 of 5

Since our home in FMB was rented, my husband and I rented the Beach Cottage for a week. We fell in love with the lil' place. The cottage is immaculate. The view of the ocean is incredible; it's literally steps to the water. The beachy décor sets the vibe for a fun time and the owner, Connie, is a godsend. She was extremely helpful and accommodating throughout the rental, including hooking us up with her friends on our last day so we could store our bags at their rental and walk the beach before our 5 pm flight. The Cottage's location is awesome; walking distance to Time Square. I have nothing but positive things to say about this place. My husband, on the other hand, has ONE gripe... Our FMB home, located on a canal, one home in from the bay, is no longer good enough... I WANT A BEACH COTTAGE!! Rent this place if you get the chance. You won't be disappointed.

We are conveniently located just five blocks south of the bridge on the North end of Ft. Myers beach. We are within walking distance to all the action, but far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet this beautiful setting has to offer.
