What can I say about the place? You just found a great Fort Myers Beach vacation rental!

. . . The one-bedroom, one-bathroom Sky Blue Beach Suite is located on the first floor of Paradise Home.

I like to refer to this little Sky Blue Beach Suite as Honeymooner’s Hideout, because the place is perfect for romantic getaways. Its reasonably-priced rate and the option to book the suite for only two nights make it ideal for young couples, who frequently contact me for last-minute reservations. Private and stylish, it has everything guests need for a little escape from the doldrums of everyday life. Many go out of town for their little escapes. My personal belief is that “We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.”

I run my places with a bed-and-breakfast feel. I want my guests to experience the beauty of the Gulf of Mexico without breaking the bank. I am passionate about hosting Fort Myers Beach vacation rentals.

Although Sky Blue Beach Suite has just one bedroom and ideally designed for two guests, the additional one or two guests can easily be accommodated. There is a good-sized TV, and a 100% white leather couch, which folds out to a full size bed in the event of four-person occupancy. An extra comforter, pillows and bedding are provided.

The kitchen is small, but well-stocked, and is adjacent to the living room. The living room and bathroom come with new designer furniture. In the kitchen you will find a coffee machine and all of the associated condiments. The table and refrigerator are gently used, but functional. For guests who want to curl up with a good book, I can supply a few. When did you last have time to read a book?

About the neighborhood. Sky Blue Beach Suite is in proximity to both the beach and a bicycle and scooter rental place. You can also take the trolley, if you prefer. A 15-minute walk will bring you to Time Square, where you can lose yourself in the festive din of the many bars. If boisterous partying is not your thing, rest assured that your suite is far enough away from the “madding crowd” to guarantee peace of mind.

A short walk will bring you to either of my two favorite breakfast establishments. One is Heavenly Biscuit, where you can get a homemade breakfast for around $5.00. (They only accept cash). After passing about five houses you will reach Estero Boulevard, and Heavenly Biscuit will be on your left. Conversely, Tuckaway Bagel and Waffle Coffee Shop is on the right, and is just a little farther, maybe a three to five-minute additional walk. There you can sit outside under tropical trees and enjoy a decent repast, washed down with the best cappuccino.

Another must-visit eatery is The Royal Scoop Ice Cream. If you go, say hi from Ella. The staff knows me well! Inside the suite you will find a guest book with all of the recommendations, for your convenience.

If you would rather cook your own fare, you can pick up some fresh fish at the grocery store around the corner and toss it on one of the two gas grills.

A washer and dryer are located behind the building.

About Ella

Welcome to Florida. I am Russian born and travelled the world. I lived in 7 and visited 40 plus countries & 30% of the world. Often, private accommodations was my choice to stay. Thus, I know how important to find the right accommodation during the travel. My goal is to not only renting a place ... I would love YOU to feel at home when you are visiting Fort Myers. Personally, I love tropical weather, hot sun, white sand beaches, turquoise, calm waves of the ocean, as well as oysters and a chilled bottle of beer. I am respectful of YOUR privacy. However, you get the best insider advice from me, if needed, just ask! I am a realtor and a nerd!

And I am quite sure that you'll come back again.

Why Ella chose Fort Myers Beach

Inexpensive, convenient, comfortable.

What makes this condo unique

It is convenient to all the bars and restaurants, yet located on a quite street.

Romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing experience in Florida. Ella, our host, took "accommodation" and "care" to a whole new level. Upon the completion of the reservation, she directed us to her personal website, which was more like Travel Guide. There we learned more about our host and felt so much more comfortable arriving at the strange home. She made us welcomed! The site had plenty of info about the local area and recommendations for all types of restaurants and bars. The most amazing part is that there was a page of how to join her VIP club, which automatically gave us a discount on our stay. We have told all our friends about Ella's Vacation Rentals -- we can't wait to return next year!

Dirty, Bugs in Bed

  • 1 of 5

Was the listing description accurate regarding the location, layout, amenities, etc ?

Yes, the description of the location and amenities was accurate.

Was the property clean and well-maintained ?

NO. The place was not clean. We woke up one morning and found bugs crawling all over the lampshade next to the bed. There were bug wings covered all over the nightstand. I went to put on my shirt and found a bug crawling on it. We all left with bug bites all over our legs and arms. It was quite gross.

Did the owner provide good customer service ?

When we got there the WIFI was not working. It took a whole day to fix this. WIFI was needed because I need to work. We also wanted WIFI so the kids could go on the internet in the evening time to wind down. So not having WIFI for so long was not good. Taking a whole day to fix an issue is too long.

Would you recommend this property to your friends or relatives ? Definitely not.

What activities, attractions and restaurants did you like or dislike near by ?

Sanibel Island looked like a much nicer place to stay. Ft Myers areas was a little dirty, run-down, too much construction and touristy. But, the beach was nice and filled with sand dollars and starfish.

Perfect for Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Sky Blue Beach house. It was very close to the beach and the bike rentals. Ella answered all of our questions. There was a binder with information about the area in the unit. The only negative was that the internet (wi-fi) was very slow, but we were on vacation so we didn't really need it. Quiet street. Parking right outside the front door.

Very dirty and not as promised, had to leave

  • 1 of 5

First of all, I gave the owner several opportunities to make this right BEFORE I posted this review but they did not respond. I rented this unit for my wife and I to spend a 4-day weekend close to the Ft. Myers Beach. The location of the unit in relation to the beach is excellent, however the conditions of the unit were unacceptable and we elected to leave after a few hours to stay in a nearby hotel instead. First of all, the floors were very dirty, sand in various spots almost had me fall twice on the ceramic floors. The area rug under the glass top table was full of old food, stains, dirt, dead bugs, etc. The bedspread itself had stains on it near the head of the bed that looked like blood stains or something similar that would not wash out. We went behind the unit to see the grill and other "amenities" and it was laughable. The grill was so rusted out there is NO WAY it would even light. The beach chairs were from the 60's and worn out and broken. Couldn't find the "bikes", there was one bike chained to the post but I believe it was a tenant upstairs or on the other side. Overall, it felt like a college frat house mid April after a year of neglect, parties, and keggers. If you are splitting the cost with 5 other people under the age of 22 and you just need a place to sleep, this unit might work for you. If you are looking for the "romantic getaway" that was promised, take my advice and book a room at the Sanibel Marriott. The cost is less and the amenities and cleanliness far outweigh the short walk to the beach.

I pleaseant experience

  • 5 of 5

I rented this place during the Thanksgiving holiday and since I have a 18 month baby , I requested an early check in. The owner responded immediately to my request and allowed me to check few hours earlier. I was very pleased with this place. It was clean, endowed and most importantly, very close to the beach.

Owner's Response: Dear Luminita, It was a true pleasure to host your lovely family at the beach accommodation. I am glad that you like it. I try to accommodate early check-in and late check-out at the best of capacity. Please come back and stay at the beach accommodations that I offer. Respectfully, Ella

This is unique location and here is what is good about it. It is located only 10 to 15 minutes of walking distance from the Tine Square, where all the bars and restaurants are and there is a party! Yes, it is far enough from all the noise, where you can enjoy the tranquil waters and white sand beach. There are a few high lights about the property that I would like to mention. One is that is is located 5 houses away from the Best Home made Ice Cream shop in South Western Florida, called Royal Scoop. There are two best breakfast places on the island that are also within the walking distance. One is very inexpensive/cash only, called Heavenly Biscuits, where home made pastries are served. Another is Tuckaway Bagel and Waffle Coffee shop, where you can get strong cappuccino, the European style. The place takes word convenience to the whole new level.

Welcome to Florida!
