About the property

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.

Located in a more sedate family atmosphere, this lovely vacation getaway has all the amenities and is just a short walk (4 minutes.) 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 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 under 75# 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 island has 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 1/2 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. You can catch a ride on the trolley.

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. 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 STUDENTS, don't even ask. You will be asked to leave if we find that you arranged a rental, and NO refunds will be given.

Lovely stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was great. House was clean and accommodated our whole family! The close walk to the beach was wonderful as we were able to walk down there several times a day! We never missed a sunset! The kids and adults lived in the pool! The hot tub was great for some adult winding down time at night as well! Grocery store was just down the road which worked out perfectly and the neighborhood was nice for stroller walks with the kids!

The only complaints we have are that the upstairs dryer hardly worked which was inconvenient because we had to constantly walk wet clothes to the garage dryer, but this is clearly stated upstairs. Also, the front right burner on the stove didn't work which made making big family meals difficult. Another thing that was surprising to us are the rats that come out at night. Sitting around the hot tub, we were surprised to see rats crawling around the shrubbery, fences, and trees. Apparently, this is a common Floridian thing thought and we weren't too bothered by it. Actually kind of kept us entertained at night 😝

Overall, a great stay and we would book again!

Perfect for families!

  • 5 of 5

Great location with very easy beach access. It was the perfect rental for our multi-generational family. The back yard with the pool, spa, and amenities was lovely. Our grandkids dubbed the pool waterfall "the car wash". We appreciated all the beach towels, plus the generous supply of other towels. Jesse was very easy to work with, responding quickly to questions. "Sweet Dreams" was great!

Beautiful Property!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed another great year at "Sweet Dreams"! The house is large, clean and well appointed. The kids loved the pool table on cool, rainy days. Only downsides are the pool was cool and we wish there was at least one room with twin beds for kids. The booking agency was great to work with as well.

Excellent Location - Excellent Property - Excellent Vacation!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

After the Hurricane had barely missed this location just 5 weeks prior to our visit we were a little concerned about state of the property and if everything in the area would be ok. The owner Gloria was terrific to communicate with and she laid our fears to rest with updated pictures of the pool and yard area and the house before we got there.

We had (3) generations of the Family with us - Parents, Kids (2 sets and spouses) and Grand Kids (best part) totalling (9) people - the house was plenty big - (5) bedrooms and (3) bath is extremely accurate - kitchen and dining room were more than sufficient for all of us and the Publix down the road (1/2 mile at most) was perfect for anything we needed.

The pool was by the far the biggest hit of the holiday - with at least 6 hours a day spent in there - it was wonderful - clean and nice size. The hot tub/spa to side was used by the kids more than the adults but enjoyed by all.

The location was perfect - a block off of busy Estero (which was under construction but caused no issues) meant it was nice and quiet and yet only a 2 minute walk to the beach - Access 16 is literally at end of the road.

We couldn't have asked for a better holiday with our big family and we hope to repeat it annually from this point forward.

Overall a marvelous place, perfectly located

  • 4 of 5

The house was very nice and we enjoyed our 2 weeks very much. To get the fifth star we recommend to fix a roof to give a shadow on the terrace which got very hot floor during the afternoond and somewhere to hang your laundry to dry.

Very short distance to the fantastic beach with outstanding sand.

Still we recommend this Dream House and would love to come back another time

Very nice!!

  • 5 of 5

Great location to beach, very short walk. Nice living arrangements with a nice kitchen. Bottom living level is only accessible from outside stairways. Pool & hot tub are excellent. Quite a drive to downtown area, so plan accordingly - traffic is very busy!!
