Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Mid Island - 'Sweet Dreams'

5 B/R, 3 full baths, Sleeps 10, (10 MAX)

Beach Access home at Fort Myers Beach, Florida. (just 4 minute walk to Ocean Access #16), across the street.

Sleeps 10, 5 bedrooms, +2 children on sofa sleepers, under 75 lbs. $300 PER PERSON PLUS TAX for every person over 10. The maximum occupancy is 12 people.

Located in a more sedate family atmosphere, this lovely vacation getaway has all the amenities and is just a short walk (4minutes.) down the street and around the corner to the beach or just up the road to some good food and entertainment.

This stilt home comes with all the comforts and conveniences of some of the best resorts available in Florida. The full kitchen has every appliance needed along with an outdoor dining area on upstairs deck and another outdoor bar and snack area downstairs near the pool.

You will love the heated pool and spa, while listening to the private waterfall in your own little gated paradise. It is fully equipped for family enjoyment or just that quiet time needed to get away for a bit.

Downstairs in the home is one Queen bedroom with full bath and the family room has a pool table with 2 couches- no sofa beds and a 42' Flat screen television for fun times.

Sorry, but we do not allow any sleeping on couches downstairs.

Upstairs there is 1 King bedroom with flat screen and 3 Queen bedrooms, plus dining room, kitchen and living room which has 2 Queen sofa beds (CHILDREN ONLY ON SOFA BEDS NO EXCEPTIONS) plus a 42' flat screen television plus WI-FI.

'Home-4632 is the icon on your I phones. The password will be available in the home upon arrival.

The entire property is fenced with 2 gates, so if you have children, you will not have to worry about them wandering off.

Fort Myers Beach is actually a part of Lee County's Estero Island, a narrow strip of land that is one mile wide at its widest point. Though, it is best known for its near perfect climate, abundant sandy beaches and ideal location for enjoying a wide range of water sports, this city offers much more than just a beach break for the vacationer.

The city is home to two golf courses and has abundant shopping and dining restaurants and Sports Bars for Football and Baseball fans. Times Square is the hub of shopping, dining, and sports bars on the beach.

This is the place to go if you are interested in nature as there are many birds living on the beach and in the mangroves.

This is also a great spot for shelling, boating, kayaking, bicycling, jet skiing, parasailing, swimming and of course, just taking a nap and getting a tan.

You can rent equipment right there on Estero Blvd. At Ocean Access 16, where you go over to the beach, walk left and the rental place is on the beach.

There is a Publix Grocery within 1/4 mile, a library, marina, small restaurants, and the trolley stop is beside the ocean access #16 which you can ride up and down Estero Blvd. on for a minimal fee.

Ride down to Lover's Key one day - you will thoroughly enjoy the trip.

Since Estero Island is very narrow, you can walk to the back bay and there are many uninhabited keys within the bay that play host to hundreds of different species of birds, plants and mammals.

We offer a beach cooler that you can pull to carry your drinks/food to the beach, also some beach chairs and we also offer a 7 1/2' Umbrella and sand anchor. If you need more lounge chairs at the beach, there is a rental place right there on the beach at Ocean Access 16.

Please take only beach chairs provided to ocean, as they rust very quickly. Also please hose off with fresh water when you return to the rental home. Thank you.

This rental is for Families only, NO college partying students. Don't even ask, and you will be asked to leave if we find that you arranged a rental.

True to its Pictures and Description

  • 5 of 5

First off - If you are looking for a trustworthy and responsive property owner, Gloria is your woman. We had many questions about the property which Gloria always answered promptly. (Both before and during our stay)

Now to get to the house: WOW. The outdoor living space is simply perfect for a beach vacation. We had two young children who absolutely loved the pool and spa. The patio area provided ample space for cornhole and for 6 adults to lounge comfortably.

The house, ideal set up. CLEAN, well maintained and up to date fixtures and finishes. The property provides beach towels, bath towels and linens and a lot of the smaller travel items. Again - so clean (and that says a lot because I am weird when it comes to sharing that stuff). The kitchen table and living room arrangements comfortably fit 8 of us. I think if we had any more adukts then extra seating would be needed.

The house is off of a quiet street one block to the beach which was perfect for our group because we had a 6yo and a 2yo. They could easily make the short walk to the beach. The beach was clean and ocean full of living sand dollars. We got a kick out of that the first day.

Overall: if you are looking for a nice place to stay in FMB then definitely consider this property. Thank you, Gloria!

Wonderful Beach Home

  • 4 of 5

Everything is accurate as described in the listing. Plenty of room for everyone, all the amenities of home, and the location to the beach. Property is clean and neat, but could use some upgrades. Deck outside has some rough spots where you could get some splinters and the couches definitely look worn. The kitchen has everything you need to cook any meal even a mixer if you need it. We like to use the grill a lot and luckily we did burgers the first night because the grill outside cooks very unevenly ( which would have been a shame if we had steak like we planned). The pool and hot tub were great and there are plenty of floats and pool toys in the garage as well as chairs, coolers and umbrellas for the beach. Lots of towels, sheets, and pillows in all the closets. Beach access is a 4 minute walk. We saw the sunset every night and dolphins in the morning. Doc Ford's Rum bar and Grille has a great scallop special on Monday nights if you like seafood. We had no issues while we were there, but the owner, Gloria was prompt and efficient in getting back to me before our trip! Great vacation on the west side of town

Owner's Response: Thank you Dale for your review. Sofabeds up are slated to be replaced in September, (only 3 yrs old), also a new grill downstairs, (new each year). We are also installing new tile up, painting all walls and addressing the upstairs deck. This beach home is fully rented during high season, and summer season each year and we were having a hard time finding open weeks to do major work. We will see you again next summer and thanks. Update: 9/25/2015 Tile work is finished. 10/2/2015 New Trek Decking finished 10/2015 Upstairs newly painted 10/2015 Upstairs baths remodeled, new grill, new couches up.

PERFECT

  • 5 of 5

I must first say, thank you to the owner for being so easy to work with and responsive. We did have one issue, which was not an issue at all (wifi - but just needed to restart modem) and she responded to my email within 5 minutes. Now, on to the house. Absolutely perfect for my group of 7 - 2 adults and 5 kids. We all had plenty of space and the kitchen could not have been more stocked with things we needed, pots, pans, utensils, bowls, etc. The short drive to Publix was very nice and the staff at that store really is great. I did not mind the few trips I had to make there. Our kids were so happy to have the pool and hot tub. I swear they used it at least 2 or 3 times per day. The walk to the beach was perfect - very short - maybe 4 minutes. And the access point seemed to be a very quiet part of the beach compared to a few access points down, towards the pier. We really did appreciate our quiet spot. The house was fully stocked with towels and beach gear. There are so many shops and places to eat within a short drive to Times Square, or a trolley ride. We just chose to drive and park so we could explore at our leisure. Also, though it is about a 45 minute drive (though a beautiful one) head over to Sanibel and Captiva and enjoy these beaches, shops, and eateries for a day. Beautiful.

Again, this place was perfect and I really feel the price was right - very close to the beach and a very spacious house. Thank you again for sharing your home. We loved it!

Great Property

  • 4 of 5

With 6 adults and a baby it was nice for everyone to have their own room. The pool was very nice and the short walk to the beach was appreciated. We also enjoyed that it was close to the grocery store and restaurants, but far enough away from the downtown scene. The price was a bit steeper than competitors, especially for it being the off-season
