About the property

5 Bedroom 3 Bath 2200 Sq Home Across from the Beach and On the Canal With Dock.

Beauitful remodeled beach and bay home. Relax in your own Tropical paradise while you enjoy the benefits of beach life and back bay access with your own boat dock and patio area. Abundant parking and quiet neighbors put you at ease while 1/4 mile walk puts you in the heart of the local hot spot, Times Square, with unique shops and beach view restaurants. Soft white sandy beach across the street: water birds, fishing and a private dock out your back door. It doesn't get any better than that. A king size bed in the master bedroom, a queen size bed in another room, 2 twins in the other 2 bedrooms, and an additional queen sized suite downstairs provides ample sleeping room for up to 10. The additional queen suite has separate entrance but is not rented separate from the house. There will not be a stranger staying downstairs during your stay.The house has granite counter tops and tile and hard wood floors with newer cabinets and new furniture which means comfortable luxury for your stay. New ownership by a Ft. Myers local means this piece of paradise is well taken care of and its renters are of the utmost importance.

This summer we are proud to announce multiple upgrades. We now have hardwood floors in all the bedrooms, and a new fishing dock with fish cleaning table. There is also a luxurious outdoor fire pit with cozy seating. Our big project this summer was creating an outdoor caribbean paradise covered patio. This space features a stone worked BBQ island with cook top and granite counter space, and a welcoming reclaimed wood farm table that seats 12. Plenty of space for family and friends. Come enjoy our new fun tropical amenities.

About Cyndi Smith

I am a Ft Myers native and advid beach lover. My parents moved me here at the tender age of 4 months. We lived in Ft Myers but played at the beach. My parents owned beach cabins for years and I always loved spending time working on the cabins and playing on the beach. After moving away I brought my husband and children back to Ft Myers. We have been enjoying Ft Myers Beach for the last 18 years. It's our oasis, with many great memories. When the oppurtunity to buy this cabin came up, I jumped. After years of experience on Estero Island, believe me I know, this is the perfect location. I am thrilled to get to fix this cabin up and create a Tropical paradise for everyone to enjoy.

Cyndi Smith purchased this house in 2015

Why Cyndi Smith chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

It's the perfect locaition! First off, north end means there is less traffic and easy on off beach access. Beautiful wide sandy beaches across the street. Private water access and boat dock in the back, for boating, fishing or private sunbathing. 1/4 mile stroll to all the beach activities, shops and resturants means I dont have to cook everynight. There is something for everyone to do: Bars, music, street performers, ice cream and ample swim suit shops and a fishing pier to walk. Beach vendors across the street mean I don't have to lug chairs and unbrellas on the beach, although I can if I want too. Sailboats, jet skis, paddle boards and water toys means we will never get bored.

What makes this house unique

Private home with lots of comfortable sleeping space and your own boat dock. Carribean flair decor with fun whimsical style. Front porch beach veiws and back porch water front privacy.

Perfect size and location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this convenient location on our week in Fort Myers. It is on the less busy side of Estero Blvd and less traffic of the main road. We were located conveniently across the street to the beach (with easy access), and the house had beach chairs, a boccee ball set, and a cart to push it all easily across the street. Time square shopping area and restaurants were an easy short walk from the house. Communication with the homeowners was very open. We had some trouble with our cable and internet (yay for comcast -.-), and the homeowners took care of the annoying shortcoming promptly. The rooms were clean and neatly decorated. There were two double rooms with an adjoining bathroom upstairs (total of 4 rooms) and a private downstairs studio. Kitchen was functional, clean, and well equiped. With a 10 person group, it was perfect for us. The outdoor area was generous with their gas, charcoal, smoker grilling station. The plentiful seating area facing the canal accommodated us with room to spare. We very much enjoyed the comforts of this rental house and would recommend it easily for a large family or group.

Christmas on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We spent the week of 12/24 - 12/30 at Cyndi's beach house. It was the best Christmas my family ever had. Cyndi has thought of everything. A fully stocked kitchen. Plenty of towels, chairs, umbrellas, even a cart to help get over to the beach. And speaking of getting to the beach... it is a snap, a short walk across the street to a wide stretch of quiet beach, just down from the busy public beach. Close enough to walk to but far enough for privacy. This house has the perfect location. No need to get the car out to go anywhere. Its just a couple blocks from all the bars and restaurants on Time Square. Cyndi has also provided wonderful outdoor living space. We ate outside at the large table Christmas Eve.

I highly recommend this rental and plan on booking it again in the future. Thanks Cyndi!

Best of Both Worlds

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a very relaxing week at this great new find on Ft. Myers beach. We loved this house's unique location because it offered the best of both worlds: convenience of walking to the beach, pier, shops, restaurants and bars that make for a fun Ft. Myers beach getaway AND a private backyard on the San Carlos bay canal where you can dock your boat, watch a wide variety of fish and sea birds, and enjoy the quiet, peaceful, tropical paradise of Estero Island. The house was clean and well maintained with high quality appliances throughout. The flexible floor plan accommodates a large family, extended families, or a multiple family vacation with bedrooms and bathrooms that are spread out. There were several places inside and out for sitting and relaxing and a wonderful large table on the tropical breezeway porch we used for family meals and game nights. The kitchen was fully equipped, the linen closets were full of high quality beach towels and bath towels, and the mattresses and bedding were very comfortable. We've rented several properties over the years and this house surpasses all of them. We plan to come back often.

Wonderfrul Home Close to beach!

  • 5 of 5

This cute home was a wonderful surprise to us. It had 4 large rooms and fit our family of eight just fine.

We had all the elements of home. With two full bathrooms, no one had to wait. The outdoor space was also lovely. Big table for groups and plenty of room to enjoy the fire pit. Fishing dock was great too. We really didn't get to enjoy them as much as we would have liked to due to the high temps (98 - 100) each day, and high humidity to boot. Walk to beach was just a block away. Would recommend this home to anyone and if the need arises, we will be back!

Norh End Ft Myers beach across the street
Car: recommended

Ft Myers Beach is a wonderful beach for everyone. Long streches of soft white sand welcome the younger and older visiters. Abundant swaying palm trees provide shade, and the gentle gulf provides a caressing breeze. The beaches are not crowded so there is room to build your sandcastles and walk the dog while keeping an eye out for beautiful shells and playful dolphins. All kinds of water birds and salt water sealife are common sights. The water is gentle and slowly slopes out. Starfish and sand dollars cover the gulf floor in spawning season. Fishermen cast out into the waters and frisbees float on the breeze. Times square is the local hot spot and is always bustling with delicious food, unique shops, and local musicians and street performers. The long fishing pier provides a great fishing opportunity and an amazing view of the sunset year round. Tourists and locals alike gather every night to gaze at natures awesome display at sunset. Beach Bars, Seafood Resturants and Quaint Beach shops stretch down the beach as far as you care to walk. Off Estero Island visiter's can find a wide array of activities from Museums (The Edison /Ford Estates) and baseball stadiums (Boston Red Socks and Minnisota Twins Spring training) in Ft Myers to Outlet shopping ( Miromar Outlets) and wildlife perserves ( Corkscrew Swamp) in Bonita Springs to exclusive shopping (Coconut Ponite Mall) and luxury resturants ( The Mercato) in Naples. Festivals and Fairs line up on the calendar all season long: The Edison Pageant of Light, SWfl Lee county fair, Collier county Fair, Shrimp Festival, Pirate fest, The Swamp Cabbage Festival, and every town has its own Taste of the town. These are just a few of the events and a Festivities you can find in Southwest FL. The Broadway Palms, and The Barbara B Mann provide live performances in Ft Myers. The Naples Performimg Arts Center and Artis keep the Naples area alive with current shows. Fishing, boating, shopping, hiking trails, biking trails, shows and festivals, there is always something fun to see and do in South West Fl. And when you are all done with that sit back, put your feet up and just listen to the rolling waves. It doesn't get any better then this.
