Description

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in North Island

Island setting, 4 Bed 2.5 Bath Villa, 8 minutes stroll from the Fort Myers Beach

Island setting, 4 Bed 2.5 Bath Villa, 8 minutes stroll from the lovely Fort Myers Beach.

33 Foot Infinity Pool giving onto canal with direct sea access (dolphin and manatee visits).

Extensive outside south facing Patio/Deck/Pool area with barbecue.

Sleeps 8.

WiFi Internet Access throughout inside and out.

Welcome to our new place in the sun, the South West Florida sun that is.

The villa has 4 double bedrooms and so sleeps 8 easily with a queen bed sofa in the lounge increasing numbers to 10 if necessary.

It is situated on the narrow Fort Myers Beach (FMB) island and, being on the Gulf of Mexico side of Florida and with FMB being reasonably sheltered and shallow, the sea really is warm. In the hotter months of July and August it is almost like getting into a bath, beating even the Caribbean.

The villa is located on a no-through street in a quiet neighborhood. To get to the beach is an 8 minute saunter down to the end of the road and to Estero Boulevard. There you will find a beach-side bar & restaurant "Junkanoo on the Beach" (great deck giving right onto the beach, excellent fajitas!) or upstairs a slightly more upmarket seafood restaurant the "Fresh Catch Bistro" with stunning views over the sea and beach and for sunsets. The public beach access is just to the left of these restaurants (see photos). All the beach / sunset photos on this site are taken from the beach at this point directly across the road. We love the beach just here, there are no large hotels nearby and we have never had a case where we couldn't pick the spot we wanted to camp up for the day. For the beach we are all prepared for you – there are beach chairs, umbrellas, mats, floats, towels and a small caddie for you to transport it all. There are also bicycles as this is a lovely way to see the island.

If you prefer to relax by a pool, one of the main features of the villa is its private 33 foot infinity edge, south-facing swimming pool. This is at the rear of the property and gives onto the canal providing, all in all, a very secluded private area where you can really enjoy the outdoor Florida lifestyle. We have everything you need for the pool and deck with proper pool loungers, floats and pool toys for the kids. The pool itself has a shallow end of 3’6” increasing to around 4’6” at about two thirds along the pool. This is for relaxing and playing in but the pool does also have a proper deep end and is big enough to do laps in. At the shallow end there is a full width bench seat with 3 water jets which you can adjust to gently massage your lower back as you relax in the pool with a drink. At night the pool is equipped with multifunction underwater lighting which you can set to your taste for your night time dips.

If you hear a large splash from the canal it is NOT (as we first thought) one of the neighbors who has fallen in, but a dolphin. They regularly chase down fish into the canal at the front of the pool and they can get quite animated when they pounce on the cornered fish. If you miss them when they arrive, they HAVE to come back past to get back to the sea, usually around 10 minutes later – great photo opportunity.

Fort Myers Beach is a friendly laid-back area with all the usual Florida attractions. The villa itself is walking distance from restaurants, a 7/11 convenience store, church, children's playground, park, recreation center and more. You will also find LOTS more useful information on the villa and surrounding area in the reviews that previous guests have been kind enough to leave. Alternatively you can go to holidaylettings co uk and search for Home ID 495518 for the same information.

In the modern age of communication, the house is equipped with Wifi which works inside or outside the villa. There is also a telephone which you can use to call anywhere in the States (and even Canada) and which anyone can use to call you during your stay. This saves a lot on roaming bills when calling restaurants / golf courses etc.

No Smoking inside the villa please.

Excellent Place to Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was pleasant and the property was as advertised. We did not encounter any problems and the instructions for operating everything were available and clearly stated. The owner was great to work with and responded to questions that we had. Directions for contact information was available if we had any concerns or needed assistance. Since I was familiar with the area I knew of many of the recommendations the owner had provided in relation to sites to visit, activities and places to eat. However if not familiar with the area, the owner provided detailed information concerning the area

Enjoyed our stay and would schedule again if staying at Fort Myers Beach. Would recommend to family and friends.

Beautiful as described. Greeted with dolphins upon our arrival. Close to beaches shopping and parks

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to find the home beautiful, just as described. The home was spacious, close to the beach, shopsb and Lover's Key State Park. We were greeted with a dolphin in the canal within an hour. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

In the past we have rented houses in Cape Coral and been very happy with most of them. This year we required a home capable of sleeping eight comfortably and this one popped up in our Home Away search and we are extremely happy that it did! Well-stocked with all the necessities from kitchen supplies to linens, pool towels etc., this one exceeded all expectations. An eight minute walk to beautiful Fort Myers Beach, the house also included a solar-heated infinity pool which, if anything, occasionally got too warm... (for me, no one else complained!) The owner responded to all questions in a timely manner and went out of his way to provide information about Fort Myers and surroundings. Trolley service (75 cents per ride) was available at the intersection of Donora and Estero Boulevards as well as two good restaurants, Junkanoo on The Beach (casual), and Fresh Catch Bistro (fine dining). Visiting friends from Australia and our Canadian family could not say enough about the whole experience. A definite winner!

I Wish I owned this wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in this home before and will return. Jonathan is great to work with! Everything you could possibly need is in this house. Kitchen is well stocked, plenty of towels and linens. Enough bikes and beach stuff for a big family! And my favorite is the outdoor space with a pool! I spent most of my time outside. Lots of furniture outside as well! Bring a book!!!

Nice

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Jon's Island Villa was terrific. Less than a 10 minute walk to the beach. The pool was fantastic, with many pool toys for the kids. There are several bikes available to use and the very nice beach chairs are a big bonus. Jon was very easy to deal with. Highly recommended. Mike

Fab Villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed ar this villa for 14 days as we liked it so much we extended our stay for an extra two days.

It had a homely feel and we felt very relaxed there ..... It was just lovely.

It is well appointed has four bedrooms , two bathrooms and a half bathroom, perfect space for families. The villa is well equipped with everything! Sun lounges/beach chairs/lots of bikes/BBQ The owner has thought of everything to make your stay comfortable.

Kitchen is well equipped too if you want to cook too.

The outside sun deck and infinity pool was amazing! Pool had a fab temparature constantly . Plenty of sun loungers and Patio furniture for a all .We saw dolphins playing it was lovely!

The villa also has space for a boat if you want to hire one.

It is a five minute walk to bars and restaurants which is great so you can all have a few beers and no driving as is the beach! Beach is beautiful and always empty!

Times Square is a 10 minute ride where it has some nice restaurants/bars or you can get a taxi which is 10 dollars each way.

There is a Publix (America's waitrose) five minute car ride which is fully stocked plus a new Walmart just as you approach Fort Myers.

Shopping outlets with bargains are 20 minutes away called Miromar and Tangier are 10 minutes away too. Plus Eddison Mall and Coco Point is the same distance.

We definitely would recommend staying here and we will be thinking about next year. !

However it would not suit disabled persons as the house has a lot of outside stairs .
