Overview

About the property

Considered by many to be one most beautiful two bedroom homes on the island

LAST MINUTE SPECIAL: May 15-24, 2017: $140/night 7 night minimum

Please Note: The calendar is up to date. If it shows a free week you can be quite sure that it is and use the book-it-now option. Because the owner spends time out of the country, inquiries that are sent after 6 PM US east coast time may not be responded to until the next morning. Thank you for your interest!

Live the good life of the southern end of Estero Island and Fort Myers Beach. Everything about this house speaks of good taste, from the recently renovated kitchen and baths with new cabinets and appliances (including wine refrigerator), recessed lighting, travertine marble and granite countertops, designer furniture; to the screened-in pool and patio area lanai; to the elegant wooden boathouse and dock; to the brick paved circular drive and tasteful gardens; and finally the quiet setting and stunning views across Estero Bay.

This two bedroom, two bath canal home is set just in from the bay in the Fairview Isles subdivision just north of Santini Plaza, at the intersection of two wide canals, so the view is great in all directions. A deeded right-of-way across Estero Blvd takes you to the middle of the most beautiful section of beach on the island, with expansive sand and the signature blue cabanas and beach chairs available for rent. Enjoy the pleasure of walking in the balmy evenings to Charley’s Boathouse or the restaurants of Santini Plaza for dinner and socializing, drinks at one of the tiki bars on the beach, or invite guests over to go for a swim in the large heated pool or to just sit outside and enjoy the evening breezes off the bay and the beautiful view. For the discerning guests who want the best, this house will be one of your favorite aspects of your vacation in the area.

The dock is available for use by the guests, so you can take your skiff down the inside of the island to the bars and restaurants of northern Fort Myers Beach such as Matanzas Harborside and Nervous Nellies, and across the bay on San Carlos Island to Parrot Key, Doc Ford's or the Nauti Turtle. Or make a day out of it with a boat trip out into the Gulf of Mexico and North to Sanibel and Captiva, Pine Island Sound and Cabbage Key, or south to Naples. If you like to fish, fishermen travel from far and wide to take advantage of the awesome catches of Estero Bay. There is room at the dock for most boats and/or jet skis of guests.

All in all, this gem of a home can be the perfect retreat from the cold north. It sleeps 4 comfortably, or a maximum of 5 in a pinch. There are flat screen TV’s in the bedrooms and one each in the living room and family room.

Notes: The Master Bedroom has a king size bed, and the guest room has two twin beds, so the house can sleep 4 comfortably. There is also a day-bed in the living room which can accommodate a 5th person in pinch. Each of the two bathrooms has a stand-up marble shower, there is no bathtub. All linens are provided, including beach towels. There are beach chairs in the garage for guests' use. Bikes can be rented at the Dolphin Inn, a short walk from the house. The pool is heated and lit, and there are also lights around the screened-in lanai area for evening entertaining, but please keep the noise down and be respectful of the neighbors. Daily or periodic cleaning and housekeeping is available through my local property managers, who can be available to answer questions, fix problems and provide other services that may be required. Linens (sheets, bath towels and beach towels) are provided and their use is included in the cleaning fee.

The calendar is up to date every day. If it shows a free week you can be quite sure that it is. Because the owner spends time out of the country, inquiries that are sent after 6 PM US east coast time may not be responded to until the next morning.

About Cameron

I am an early retired businessman who enjoys beautiful homes. Having grown up in a Brownstone in NYC, and summers on the beach in Connecticut on Long Island Sound, I still gravitate to cultural centers, as well as beach and boating communities. I have homes in the Boston area; Fort Myers Beach, Florida; and Paris and Mimizan, France.

Cameron purchased this house in 2014

Why Cameron chose Fort Myers Beach

I immediately fell in love with the beautiful remodeling which had been done, the manicured gardens and stunning location. The house had everything I was looking for, including boat lift and pool. I have spent the last year decorating it and getting all the details right (I hope).

So much fun we have already booked for next year!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 weeks in January of 2017 and immediately booked for an entire month for 2018. We had a great time, HEATED pool was perfect, brand new gas grill for grilling out, spectacular view of the bay, the home is centrally located and within walking distance to many restaurants, pharmacy, shopping plaza, and a short walk to the beach. In fact, we didn't even rent a car, we walked or rode the trolley wherever we needed to go. Allan and Lisa took care of any maintenance issues, and were friendly and outgoing. Cameron is easy to work with and more than accommodating to any of our needs......already looking forward to next year!!!

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was absolutely wonderful! The home is located on a very quiet and serene street. Alan and Lisa were great as well! They arranged to have bikes ready for us when we arrived. We loved riding them to dinner and to the beach! Pool is great and such a beautiful and calming view out over the intercostal waters. Can't wait to visit Ft. Myers again soon!

As we walked in we were delighted to see all was so very clean. The kitchen , bedrooms and baths were supplied with everything and more han we expected. We were even greeted with a bottle of wine and beautiful wine glasses. "Impressive" is a good word to describe this home. Our experience was beautiful!! Thanks Cameron for sharing your beautiful home.

A home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The house was excellent with great air conditioning. Kids loved the pool and their beds - said they were super comfy. We also liked how close it was to the beach and other shops and stores around FMB. Little touches such as shampoo, conditioner, beach towels, wagon, etc. were also appreciated. Highly recommend and hope to visit again soon. Much better than staying at a hotel.

Great Florida get away

  • 5 of 5

The Fairview was a very comfortable home with well thought out conveniences. The kitchen was perfectly stocked with absolutely everything needed for our stay. The small details of beach towels and chairs, bikes and a wagon made all the difference between a good visit and a great one. The washer and dryer were wonderful to have available and the bottles of wine were a nice touch. Alan and Lisa were in touch before our flight landed and were quick to respond to any small issues that arose or any questions. The neighborhood was-pretty and quiet and close to Bonita Springs and my favorite Barefoot Beach. The pool area at the house was perfect with great seating and a gas grill. I would happily return to the Fairview and recommend it to future renters.
