About Amy D'Altrui

I am a Colorado girl who moved from Vail to Fort Myers in 2001 with my husband. We miss the Rocky Mountains, but we enjoy all that Florida has to offer. The weather is beautiful and we love exploring the waters of the Gulf of Mexico in our kayaks.

Amy D'Altrui purchased this house in 2005

Why Amy D'Altrui chose Fort Myers

Whiskey Creek is the heart of Fort Myers! The location is central to everything... 10 miles to the beach, 5 miles to downtown, shopping and restaurants everywhere. When we moved here we spent six months househunting and kept coming back to Whiskey Creek. We live just down the road from this rental property. Whiskey Creek is an established, beautifully-maintained community with great biking and walking paths.

What makes this house unique

This home is so much FUN... you don't have to go further than the back deck for happy hour! In the evenings the fish jump like crazy- it's great to just sit in the pool, sip a margarita and watch the show. When the mantee get involved it is very cool. The lanai is a perfect spot for coffee and the newspaper... the sunrise is amazing!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Amy

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Fort Myers. The home is lovely and obviously well cared for. The quiet neighborhood was a real plus and we enjoyed long walks. Most pleasurable was the view overlooking the canal. In summation, we will certainly consider renting your home again in the future and would highly recommend it for any potential future renters.

Awesome home with a beautiful back yard water view

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this lovely home while transitioning and building my own home in this same area. I had to store all of my personal things and found everything I needed to stay without worry. It is clean and well maintained. The location is perfect! Close to shopping and the beaches. My first week manatees were in the back canal almost every day!!! The owners kept everything in check....I would highly recommend this VRBO !!!!

Our family of 3 stayed at this home for several months waiting for the completion of our new home. We enjoyed the view of the waterfront and watching the abundance of marine life. The home is very nicely equipped and we had everything that we needed. The owners are very conscientious and the neighbors and neighborhood is delightful! Whiskey Creek is such a pedestrian friendly neighborhood making it a joy to take walks or bicycle. We have recommended this vacation rental to everyone that we know coming to Fort Myers.

Wonderful house with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at our your house. We had swim and grill almost every night and really enjoyed the pool and canal views. I was always fascinated watching the manatees from the sun porch. The neighbors were wonderful and the neighborhood very friendly. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

Beautiful home in beautiful neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful home, located on a canal, close to all the fun and beauty Ft. Myers has to offer. If you want privacy, in a beautifully furnished home, close to shopping, the beaches, and everything you need, this is the perfect place. The huge lanai overlooks the pool, which overlooks the canal. A slice of paradise, as you can see from the picture (I took that at sunrise from the bedroom). Everything you need to have a perfect getaway. We enjoyed our vacation in this beautiful home and highly recommend it to others. Another added plus, manatee came to frolic in the canal each day, right behind the house. That was just spectacular!

The Perfect Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

This was our first lengthy stay in the Fort Myers area and it exceeded our expectations. The house on Fairfield was perfect. It is in a quiet, friendly neighborhood called “Whiskey Creek” which was great for walking and bicycling. Located just off McGregor Boulevard, it has easy access to all of the stores, restaurants, golf courses, and Sanibel Island. We enjoyed sitting in the lanai overlooking the canal and pool in the morning and evening. One day we even saw a manatee and its baby swimming very slowly in the canal. It was pleasant to be able to go out for the day and then return home to a relaxing and elegant atmosphere. There was everything we needed including a barbecue grill so we cooked out quite often.

Amy, who owns the home, was the perfect hostess. She met us there on the first day and offered many suggestions on things to do and places to see during our six week stay. She even had the cable company install Wi-Fi for our use.

We are certainly looking forward to returning to Fort Myers next year.
