Why Claudia and Nick Metcalfe chose Fort Myers Beach

All year round - beach side paradise

This gem of an apartment is situated in the quiet, beautiful residential part of the island, right on the beach, which makes it an amazing beach hide away.

What makes this house unique

The location of the apartment is truly amazing - living on the beach & ocean, set amongst the coconut palms - simply heaven. Nevertheless - The little island's Publix, Bars and Restaurants are just a couple of minutes walk away to cater for all you desire. Enjoy the best of both worlds!

location great - place "ok"

  • 3 of 5

Super nice people own a place on a great beach. I was expecting more from the inside, but it is a beach house feel. Sleeps many if you need it! But, being on the beach it came with some critters. We did stay right after hurricane, so I"m sure that had something to do with it.

Great location.

Owner's Response: Dear Allison, Thank you again for staying with us. We were glad to be able to accommodate your stay, despite hurricane Irma just having swept through the island. We are sorry to hear you encountered 'critters' and do apologize. Being in the Florida tropics we keep a very close eye on the pest control maintenance of our rental properties. They are treated (pet and child friendly) on a regular basis in order to prevent this from happening. However, as you rightly say, with all the flooding the island has experienced, this might have been why. I am pleased to let you know this must have been a one off, as we have had no further complains or sightings. We hope to welcome you back in the near future, warm wishes, Claudia

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We really loved this property. It was perfect for our family. Literally 20-25 yards to the water. Palm trees provided awesome shade. It was very relaxing. Highly recommend this location and the owners were very nice and accomodating.

Absolutely Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time! The house was very accommodating for six people. The property has the nicest beach yard that we saw. There are beautiful palm trees and flowers. It was almost like we had our own private beach! It was not crowded at all! We saw crabs and dolphins and found beautiful shells!

We grilled out on the beach almost every night and had a fire in the fire pit. Our children loved roasting marshmallows and hot dogs over the fire while taking the breathtaking sunsets in from the beach/back porch.

The grocery store is literally across the street with easy access. We even walked over a couple times to grab a few things.

The owners are extremely nice and are very helpful! They even have put a booklet together with suggested restaurants and things around the area to do for fun!

Gulf Front Property - you're on the beach!
Car: not necessary

There is something for everybody - whether you just want to relax on the beach, cool drink in hand or plan a more action packed day ranging from fishing, deep sea fishing, jet ski, kayak, paddle boarding, biking, walking, beach combing, bird watching - to name a few.

There is lots to explore: Lovers Key National Park is just around the corner with its gorgeous beaches and trails. A popular day trip are the beautiful islands of Sanibel and Captiva. The surrounding areas offer great shopping, and the world's best golf courses.

After such a busy day you can enjoy watching the sunset from your Beach Front Apartment.

This is the stuff that dreams are made of!
