If you’ve been looking for a vacation getaway that can accommodate a crowd, your search is over: A 2-story duplex, Primo Pool Home can sleep up to 12 guests. And with 2 separate living areas and kitchens, it’s as well suited for 2 families as it is for a reunion of friends.
An abundance of space isn’t the only thing Primo Pool Home has going for it, though. There’s also the location, right on a canal leading out to Matanzas Harbor, complete with a private boat dock. Even if you don’t sail, canoe, or kayak yourself, you’ll still relish lazing in the shade of the dock shelter, waving to the passing boats and watching for dolphins and manatees as you fish or simply revel in the breeze.
What’s more, the house is only a 5-minute walk from the pristine beach and the Gulf of Mexico. And you can walk to the shops, restaurants, and nightspots of the island’s Times Square area in less than 10 minutes. It’s so liberating to enjoy a night on the town without having to rely on a car!
Then again, once you see Primo Pool Home’s lavish heated pool, Jacuzzi, waterfront patio, and screened-in lanai, you may decide to spend all your time there! Splash about among the pool’s quirky mermaid fountains, then dry off in the sun. Relax in the hot tub or on the screened-in lanai with a book. And because the patio is equipped with a grill, tables, and chairs, you can even cook and dine outside. The salt-scented breeze makes everything taste better!
You will have to head indoors eventually, of course. Fortunately the interior won’t disappoint. The lower level’s living area, which opens onto the lanai, brings the breezy sunshine of the outdoors in. There’s room for the whole gang to get comfy and watch a movie on the TV.
The 2nd-floor living room is slightly more formal but just as inviting, with a large sectional sofa, its own TV, and a recliner perfect for cozying up with a book or a tablet (the house has free WiFi). It opens onto a shady balcony overlooking the pool and the palm-lined canal. With its gliders and ceiling fan, the balcony is an idyllic spot for keeping cool on even the hottest days.
Each floor has its own fully equipped kitchen, complete with appliances (including the all-important dishwasher), cookware, prep tools, and tableware. The lower-level dining table seats at least 6; the upper level can seat another 6 at the dining table and 4 more in the eat-in kitchen. Go ahead, invite friends and family over for the festivities!
As for bedrooms, you have 4 to choose from. Each level has 2 bedrooms, one with a pampering king-size bed, the other with 2 lofty queen-size beds. All 4 bedrooms include plenty of storage, a TV, and a ceiling fan whose gentle breeze and soft murmur will ease you to sleep. Each of the 2nd-floor bedrooms has its own full-size bath, with a 3rd bathroom on the ground floor.
A wealth of fresh towels and bedding will be waiting for you. For added convenience, there’s a washer and dryer on the premises. Instead of wasting time in a Laundromat, you can walk to the beach. Once there you can search the velvety sands for shells (there are plenty to be found), swim, paddleboard, kayak, jet-ski, parasail… So many choices! And, you are near all the restaurants and shopping in Fort Myers Beach.
Once you stay at Primo Pool Home, you’ll want to return again and again. And you can: The house is for sale! First, though, you need to reserve your initial stay. Go ahead, before someone else does!

This house is an overall great place to stay but the pool is not at all as advertised. We brought 4 small kids here and rented a house with a heated pool knowing that they would want to swim a lot. The pool was advertised at 80-85 deg but averaged 68-72 the whole week. We made attempts daily to contact rental agency, pool maint., etc. with them not fixing it. The gulf was warmer then pool!! The kids were barely able to swim and we spent a lot of time trying to right this which ended up in us wasting a lot of vacation time doing so. The neighbor lady said this is a common problem for all renters who rent this house. The house has a great location, very spacious, fishing from dock, and all around good. We just wish the kids could have enjoyed the pool more 🙁 Would not recommend if swimming is going to be a main activity for you.
This house has very very dirty disgusting carpet. Dirty: sofa, shower curtains, rugs, bedspreads, etc. The house has not been updated since the 1980's or 1990. The pool was not heated and the hot tub heat did not work. No pool chairs. Some of the door locks did not work. All of the thermostats were locked and it was very hot at night to sleep. Very limited amount of towels and wash cloths. No beach towels or beach chairs. Many things did not work in this house. We woke up the first day and all of our food in the kitchen was covered with ants. We called maintenance, they were very nice and came out and sprayed. After that we did not have trouble with anymore ants. This house is in a great location with a great layout. But the house is not well maintained, has dirty carpet and furnishings and needs a complete remodel. The only people I would recommend renting this house is a bunch of very drunk college kids on spring break.
We liked the location. We could walk to the town and at the corner of the street was a great place to grab a breakfast sandwich, hamburger or Chicago style hot dog.
This is a great rental. Location cannot be beat and the hot tub is a plus! Only draw back is the coin operated washer and dryer. You must bring quarters since area businesses do not want to give change either.
