Wonderfully relaxing & tropical!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this site. One block to the Gulf of Mexico with a canal in the backyard for our kayaks. Quite, private, lovely neighborhood. Debbie lives upstairs & is extremely helpful with questions or anything you need. Just awesome! This is our second time here & we will be back.

Beach Retreat will not disappoint! (3 time renter)

  • 5 of 5

Our family loves our visits to Beach Lover's Retreat! We have visited on three different occasions (2 weeks each during months of January, April and December) over the past 4 years and each time the property is consistently comfortable, clean and inviting. We visited as a family of 1 adult/2 children or 2 adults/1 child all with our two large dogs. It is less than a five minute walk to the beach, quiet, very clean, close to Publix and Lover's Key (Dog Beach). The kitchen is fully stocked for cooking your own meals or there are many good restaurants within a bike ride or a very short drive. The king bed is very comfy and there are two TV's (living room and bedroom). The beach is so close you can literally see the beach access from the front of the house. The apartment has plenty of sheets and blankets for the fold-out couch. The lanai is a wonderful relaxing place for a meal, to read or play a board game. The deck is good for some morning coffee or early afternoon sun. Debbie is always available for questions but you also have plenty of privacy. The neighborhood is good for walking the pooches (pick up after them!). There were updates during our last visit (Dec. 2016): bedding, bathroom accessories, etc. I suggest this location and apartment to anyone staying in FMB that wants some peace and quiet but yet still close to everything. Give Beach Retreat a visit.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We love Beach Lovers Retreat! It is off the beaten path but still very accessible to the beach. The home is spotless and the owner goes out of her way to be helpful and accommodating. You will find everything you need here from a well stocked kitchen to anything you may need for a day at the beach. The owner even has bicycles for your use and provided us with a Monopoly game on a rare rainy day. You won't be disappointed!

Exceeded Expectations Wonderful Beach Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This listing exceeded all of our expectations. Charming apartment on the water with a private pool and large screened in porch. A short three minute walk to the beach, where dogs are permitted on leases and away from the busy beach resorts. The apartment included a king size bed, very comfortable, and two full size couches with one converting into a queen size bed. The kitchen has all the amenities you will need and was very clean and functional. We enjoyed every minute of our stay and the owner Debbie was available for any requests but gave us total privacy. I would recommended this apartment to anyone looking for a vacation in South Fort Myers Beach and I will return again this year. The apartment is located 5 minutes south of excellent restaurants on Estero Blvd and the grocery story was only 5 minutes north of the apartment. Very easy to find and relax in beautiful gulf coast Florida. Enjoy your vacation in paradise.

Wonderful Vacation at Beach Lover's Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Our host Debbie was a delight! The accomodations were very clean and we found everything we needed for a great vacation. The beach is a very short block away. There is a very nice and clean laundramat only a block away. The screened lanai is huge as is the deck and we enjoyed both very much. We loved Beach Lover's Retreat so much we are going back to spend the months of Feb. and Mar. We have stayed at various condos and homes on Ft. Myers Beach but Beach Lover's Retreat is priced right...always a good thing!

Located in the 'quiet area' of Fort Myers Beach, it is wonderful for walking, biking (2 bikes included with your stay) and relaxing. On a quiet canal if you want to take your boat, kayaks out to the bay or it is 100 yards to the Gulf of Mexico!
