About Liliane Van Marck

From a 10 acre ranch to this beautiful parklike beach house setting. Just love the treelined lushly landscaped street. Come and enjoy my dream house 2 minutes from the beach!

Liliane Van Marck purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Liliane Van Marck chose Fort Myers Beach

I love Fort Myers beach and all it has to offer. I had my eye on this property for a year before I was able to buy it. My dream house by the beach finally came true and we just finished remodeling and decorating. It is located on one of the most beautiful tree lined streets in the area leading to the magnificent gulf beach. I could not have chosen a better location. Bring your cars, bikes, boat, RV, there is plenty of room on this oversize property. Extra large driveway and extra long.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment comes beautifully furnished with its own washer and dryer, private entrance, and private back patio overlooking beautiful pond loaded with fish and wildlife. All premium channels cable TV and DVR. Wifi and a laptop for your convenience. Just bring your suitcase, it is conveniently and completely equipped.

A great stay, but too short!

  • 5 of 5

We only stayed one night due to airline flight changes and it went above our expectations. We originally chose the one bedroom and bath upstairs, but ended up taking this apartment downstairs since it was available. It was fully furnished with everything you would need for a long stay and very clean. It has a full kitchen with all appliances, a lanai with table & chairs for relaxing outside, and a pond where you can feed the turtles and fish. We even met a stork that used the bread to attract and catch its own fish! Free wi-fi and Netflix, etc. There are also some DVD’s, CD’s and books you can use. There are beach umbrellas and chairs, beach toys, etc. if you need some to use at the beach. The apartment felt fairly quiet and secluded even though it was under the main home. The linens were fresh and the bed was very comfortable. Liliane went out of her way to make us feel comfortable on this last vacation day before we left for home. We definitely recommend staying here!

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here for 3 nights and it was perfect for us! Liliane and Robby were very welcoming! The house is located on a very quiet street and in a very relaxing setting. We had everything we needed from supplies in the kitchen to beach toys for the kids. Everything was exactly as pictured. Our kids loved to feed the turtles in the pond and walk around the paths in Mantanza's Nature Preserve. The beach is very close and easy to get to as well. A wonderful place for our quick family vacation!

Terrific place so close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This little gem was everything that we hoped it would be and more! Liliane has thought of everything you might need to help enjoy your stay-- beach chairs, towels, bikes, beach toys, umbrellas. And, the spot is quiet, clean and great place for a vacation! The place is very well maintained and I'd recommend it to anyone!

This is a great place to stay! Just bring some clothes and you will be set! Liliane goes out of her way to supply the house with everything you could possible need from toothbrushes to shampoo and anything else that you might need, including beach accessories. They were very helpful with where to go and good places to eat. It is close to everything and Fort Myers beach is awesome! Hope to return soon......
