About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

We invite you to experience our newer vacation home, located on the north end of Fort Myers Beach (where all the action is), on a saltwater canal. Enjoy fishing from the dock, walk to the beach (1 block from 7 miles of white sand beaches)or shopping in Times Square. Enjoy the numerous restaurants or dancing without having to worry about driving. Great action for both the kids and adults. All are in close walking distance.

An artist from California built the home in 1998. The furnishings/decor is Shabby Chic with antiques, faux finished walls, Mexican tiles, and an out door lanai. Plus a new fully programmed salt water pool/spa added in 2004 includes a closed in cage and an added deck off the upstairs living area for more outdoor private enjoyment and party space. A fully equipped remodeled kitchen in 2013 with lots of seating accommodates any sized occasion or holiday needs. You will feel warm and cozy here. But please, no smokers or spring breakers allowed!

If you would like to bring a boat, you can use the dock, at no extra charge.

If you enjoy bird-watching/listening, there is an amazing array of birds to view right from the deck. I have seen blue herons, night herons, egrets, pelicans and osprey. Every once in a while you might see a neighborhood otter, dolphin, or manatee in the canal. It is rare that you don’t see a dolphin while taking a walk on the beach. A walk to the tip of Bowditch Point (north point of Fort Myers Beach) and back takes about 1 hr. and 10 min. A walk I like to do once a day for both mind and body. Or just sit and enjoy the sun, warm water, shelling, or whatever your mood? The daily sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico should not be missed.

About Roxanne Fairbairn

I'm an artist living in the Bay area of California, but have been coming to FL for over 30 years with my family who were snow birds from the Philadelphia area. I built Casa Roxanna in 1998 and have been sharing it with guests ever since. My sister lived next door and when my son was small we used to come for all holidays, but now he is grown so we usually spend the month of November there were we enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving with family and friends.

Roxanne Fairbairn purchased this house in 1998

Why Roxanne Fairbairn chose Ft Myers Beach

Casa Roxanna is a sweetheart of a house with all the amenities for entertaining. The kitchen is fully equipped and remodeled in Dec. 2013 with lots of counter space for a buffet like party with plenty of seating. When the weather is not too hot, you can open up the 3 sets of French doors, turn off the air conditioner and the inside becomes part of the outside with open deck, more seating and tables, plus you are inside a 2 story cage, so bugs are not a worry. It is very pretty at night to watch the sunset and then the property is illuminated with the lighted pool and landscaped areas. You can bring a boat, fish off of the deck, walk to the beach or Times Square...where all the action minutes away. We love it.

Note: a 3 week maximum stay and during high season (Nov. thru April), I rent from Sat. to Sat. During the off season renting mid week is OK. One small dog welcome too. Thank you!

What makes this house unique

The decor is shabby chic with faux finished walls, Mexican tile pavers throughout with bamboo floors in the 3 bedrooms, family antiques and fun art collectibles from all over the world. It is different from the typical Floridian style of furnishings and colors. A homey and comfortable home for a family of 4-6 people or it flows for a party if you have family or friends in the area (only sleeps 6 comfortably though). The location is quiet with easy access to everything. Some guests have been coming for over 10 years.

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here, this is a nice, fully furnished house on a great canal within walking distance of downtown and the beach. Roxanne is wonderful to work with. The pool and hot tub are great, though I would say the one downside of the home is that there is no solar cover for the pool and we had some cold nights, so the pool was very cold until the late afternoon when it would finally heat up enough to use it. The spiral staircase was also not ideal for our small children, but we kept it blocked off and used the other stairs which are close by so it wasn't a big deal. We loved fishing off the dock and watching the boats go by. Overall a great place, we would definitely stay here again.

Great location, close to the action, but still on a quiet street.

  • 5 of 5

Was very impressed with this house, it had everything we were looking for, pool, spa, and channel access. This is our 4th rental on FMB, and the best, the house was stocked with lots of extras, both household and beach items, (thank you).

The quiet end of the street made for relaxing mornings on the deck, and wonderful evenings in the hot tub.

The short walk to Time Square is so convienant, bypassing the traffic is a huge bonus when staying on the island.

Would deffinantly recommend this home, and look forward to staying there again.

Great time at Case Roxanna

  • 4 of 5

Nice place, very clean. Hot tub and pool great. Location great. Very comfortable beds. Only thing my wife didn't like was the rug in the master bedroom, rough on the feet. Nice of Roxanna to supply beach chairs, coolers, umbrella and beach towels, all the things that are hard to take with you when traveling through the air. Well supplied kitchen. Love the fact that it is encouraged to leave anything next family can use: ex. spices, condiments or unopen snacks, soda's and beers. When operating pool and hot tub from inside, follow the directions at stated, but there is about a 15 second delay after you push a button so wait before you push another. I would definitely stay there again.

Nice house, great location

  • 5 of 5

This house is in the perfect location for enjoying Ft. Myers Beach. Most of the entertainment (Beach, shops, bars, and restaurants) are within walking distance. But it sits off the main drag at the end of a side street so it's very quiet. If you want to go somewhere that's not within walking distance, the trolley stop is at the end of the street and very convenient. The house is stocked with everything you could need for a day at the beach. There's no need to bring anything. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again.

About Fort Myers Beach: Fun for the Whole Family!

Fort Myers Beach, Florida, located on Estero Island, has been dubbed the “best beach in the world,” because of soft currents, shallow water, and gently sloping terrain (gentle surf is great for small children). Much like Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Fort Myers Beach is filled with tee-shirt shops, restaurants, and gift boutiques.

Outdoor activities, like water skiing, parasailing, boating, fishing, golf, and seven miles of beautiful beaches, the main attraction.

Fort Myers Beach is also near other great vacation possibilities.

Sanibel Island, a short ferry rides away. Close to 80 miles south,

Everglades National Park makes a great day trip. And to get a great

historical perspective on all of Southwest FL trek less than twenty

miles into Fort Myers and see the Fort Myers Historical Museum.

Whatever your taste, Fort Myers Beach is a perfect vacation spot for the whole family.

Fort Myers: Royal Palms & Industrial Legends

Fort Myers, Florida was built along the Caloosahatchee River as one

of the bases of operations during the Seminole Indian Wars. Fort

Myers was named honor of Colonial Abraham C. Meyers, the son-in-law of the commander of Fort Brooke in Tampa. Located in beautiful Lee County, Fort Myers has activities to whet any taste bud.

With its temperate climate and close proximity to both the

Caloosahatchee River and the Gulf of Mexico, Fort Myers is a

fisherman’s dream comes true. Snook, tarpon, redfish, spotted sea

trout, sheepshead, jack crevalle, shark, barracuda, mackerel, and

mangrove snapper are all prime targets for both inshore and off

shore fisherman. Golf courses are also in abundant supply.

Eastwood Gulf Course, designed in 1976, has been listed by Golf

Digest as one of the best public couples in the United States.

No visit to Fort Myers is complete without stopping off at the home

of one of area’s most famous citizens, Thomas Edison. He ambled

into Fort Myers and decided to build a winter home here. The

Edison/Ford Winter Estates museum houses Edison’s home, “Seminole Lodge,” and is now a registered historical landmark. The property is also home to Edison’s laboratory, his Botanical Garden,

his “electric launch”, the boat he used to entertain guests to the

estate, and the Edison Museum, which exhibits artifacts used by the inventor, as well as his collection of automobiles. Tours are

available to show visitors the estate, and enlighten listeners on

Edison’s inventions (and exploits). You have heard about the light

bulb, but did you know he invented wax paper and tin foil?

Edison’s next door neighbor didn’t do too badly her himself, Henry

Ford bought the property adjacent to Edison, and the two magnate’s families wintered together in Fort Myers. Ford’s estate, “Mangoes”, is separated from Edison’s by a “Friendship Gate”,which came to symbolize the close bond between the two tycoons. They entertained luminaries such as Charles Lindbergh, Harvey Firestone, naturalist John Burroughs, Nobel Laureate Alexis Carrel among others.

Fort Myers is rich in the history of Southwest Florida. A must-see

for any history buff is the Fort Myers Historical Museum. Built

from a converted railroad depot and opened in 1982, the museum

covers the history of the Calusa and Seminole Indians, Spanish

battlements including a cannon of the early 1700’s, and models of

the original fort used in the Second Seminole War. Military history

is also the focus for the museum’s WWI and WWII display, which

includes a recovered P-39 Airacobra fighter plane.

Due to its central location, Fort Myers is a great spot to base a

Florida vacation. Fort Myers Beach is almost fifteen miles away,

and Sanibel Island, and its pristine white beaches, is barely twenty.

Fort Myers, known as the “City of Palms”, for the 1800 royal palms

(given first by Thomas Edison) that line the streets on McGregor

Boulevard, is both a monument to the Old South, and a bridge to a

new Florida that thrives on energy and vitality; a town where you

can simultaneously step back in time, and run headlong into the
