About the property

3 Bedroom Bungalow, 2300 Sq Ft Inside With 1200 Sq Ft Outdoor and Heated Pool.

The amazing views of the sparkling lake and natural preserve allow you to see nature from the comfort of the oversized lanai. Sip on your morning coffee or your afternoon cocktail while observing great blue herons, wood storks, bald eagles, egrets, ducks, osprey and many more birds. All from the bistro table inside the lanai. You may even have a sighting of the small gator and turtles that inhabit the lake! We have furnished the inside of our home and outside in the pool area with all new high quality furniture and accessories. Your comfort is important to us and to that end we have provided a fully equipped kitchen, all new linens including beach towels, an outside barbecue grill, new beds including a King in the master, a queen in one of the guest rooms and extended length twin beds in the second guest room. There are four new flat screen TVs. One in the master, one in the living room, one in the family room and one In the queen guest bedroom. You access the pool from all three sliders, off the living room, family room and master bedroom. It's wonderful having your own private pool but if you want a community experience the Clubhouse is within a three minute walk and provides many arranged activities. There is also a resort style lap pool, a fully equipped fitness centre, an aerobics/dance/yoga room, billiards and library, lighted tennis/pickle ball courts, basketball court and children's playground. This is not a 55 plus development and therefore provides a diverse atmosphere. This is a gated community with security guards at the front gates and card access. Golf, grocery stores and marina waterside dining is within a five minute drive. Enjoy a sunset cruise (byob), departing from the marina just down the road. Just across the bridge is Fort Myers and just up the road is Cape Coral. Easy access to many more restaurants and all the shopping you could imagine! If you enjoy walking there is a 2 mile walking path that surrounds Moody River. Fort Myers beach is under an hour and if you want to visit the top beach in North America, Siesta Keys is a little over an hour. Also you can reach Captiva and Sanibel in under an hour and collect shells or watch for the dolphins! So much more to say but you'll have to explore and experience it for yourself!

About Liane Bolton

We have purchased this home as our vacation home to be enjoyed by us whenever we can in off season while renting it out to snowbirds in high season. We are from Ontario, Canada and we absolutely love the North Fort Myers area and the location of Moody River. Everything that we need is in such close proximity. We are proud of the home we have set up in Moody River and look forward to having other couples enjoy the experience.

Liane Bolton purchased this bungalow in 2014

Why Liane Bolton chose North Fort Myers

We chose this area for a few reasons. We used to visit grandparents in North Fort Myers when our children were young. So we started looking in that area along with other areas about two years ago and after an exhaustive and detailed search we chose Moody River. We only wanted a gated community and we had also decided we didn't want a 55 plus community. We have found this community to be welcoming and friendly. There are many social activities or you can easily choose privacy. We were quite particular in what we wanted a property to offer us and we found this house but it didn't have a pool so we have just installed one. Now we have everything we want!

What makes this bungalow unique

The views of the lake from all of the back windows and even when standing at the sink in the kitchen make me feel so happy. I have always been drawn to water views and to see the sun rising across the water and the spectacular colours of the sky and the sparkling water, it is so good for your soul. That is what drew us to this property!

We have had a full state of the art water filtration and water softener system installed. Florida water is not very palatable so we have done this to provide excellent drinking water throughout the house along with softened water for bathing and to prevent dry skin. If you enjoy historical sights, over the bridge into Fort Myers, enjoy visiting Edison's house and Henry Fords home along with the charming historic section of Fort Myers for dining and browsing. Locally you can catch a movie or one of the many car shows.

We just got back home from a 3 month stay in this home. It was a very clean and well equipped home. The Master Bed was very comfortable, which is very important to us!! The Owners had everything there that we needed and if a problem or question came up, it was handled very quickly. Depending on what everyone likes and enjoys, great food and things to do are all in the area. Grocery store, Walmart, CVS, etc..are all within just a few minutes drive. I even found a great little Nail Place that was close, and very clean!

I would recommend this home for someone wanting to enjoy a relaxing stay!. Very nice people to work with and enjoyed talking and sharing information about the area with them as well.
