Around Fort Myers Beach

Feeling like a day of leisure? Take a dip in the inviting heated pool and let your worries float away on the gentle waves. Or perhaps the beach is calling your name—load up the beach wagon with provided chairs, towels, and an umbrella, and embark on a short 5-minute stroll to the nearby beach access. As you sink your toes into the soft white sand, keep an eye out for playful dolphins dancing in the sparkling waves.

But wait, there’s more to explore! If you’re in the mood for a change of scenery, head over to the neighborhood bayside park and immerse yourself in the tranquil beauty of nature. With every glance, you might just catch a glimpse of enchanting manatees frolicking in their natural habitat.

Thinking of venturing further afield? Times Square beckons with its vibrant energy and endless entertainment, just over 2 miles away. Grab your bikes or rent some locally for a quick and scenic journey to this bustling hub of activity. And when hunger strikes, rest assured that delicious dining options await just a stone’s throw from home. Indulge in mouthwatering meals at bayside favorites like Junkanoo Below Deck and Fresh Catch Bistro, located behind Publix for a dining experience that’s as convenient as it is delicious.

Navigating the island on bicycles is a breeze, but remember to exercise caution, especially where bike lanes may be limited. And while the island may seem like a paradise day and night, it’s safest to leave your bike adventures for the daylight hours, ensuring that your island escape remains as carefree as can be.

So pack your sense of adventure and get ready to create unforgettable memories at our Gulf Island home. From lazy days by the pool to exhilarating beach outings and everything in between, your island paradise awaits!

Not Too Far Away

While you’re calling Gulf Island your home base, you’ll want to plan excursions to:

  • Lovers Key State Park (bring bikes, rent kayaks, walk trails, enjoy the beach)
  • Sanibel Island (rent bikes there, go shelling on the beaches, dine some place new)
  • Naples (explore Naples Beach and shop and dine on 5th Ave)
  • The Everglades for an airboat tour!

You may want to boat down to the Florida Keys on the Key West Express that leaves from our neighboring island, San Carlos Island. The boat returns in the evening, but maybe you’ll choose to stay in the Keys one night to get the full experience.

Property Notes

Gulf Island home is set up for 6 guests. One bedroom has stacked full size mattresses on the floor acting as the bed. If needed, you can separate the mattresses on the floor in that room allowing for up to 2 more guests.

The home accommodates up to 8 people, maximum, any time of day or night. We cannot allow events at the home. Fire code will not allow more than 8 overnight guests. If you would like to go over capacity with day-time visitors, please contact Susan to discuss.

The garage is not accessible from the upstairs living space directly. There is a ping pong table with balls and paddles that you’re welcome to use in the garage. That’s where you’ll find the beach wagon, beach chairs, beach toys and beach umbrella too.

There is a finished room in the space which is accessible from the pool area. You’ll find another bath and a TV area in this room. However the doors off the pool area into the garage and this room have sensors to warn of children accessing the pool area unattended. Any time these doors are opened, the alarm button must be pressed and the door closed promptly to avoid the audible alarm.

Swimming Pool

Our pool was crafted with your comfort and safety in mind, perfect for leisurely sitting, tranquil floating, and gentle swimming. Whether you’re soaking up the sun’s rays or enjoying a refreshing dip, you’ll find plenty of opportunities for relaxation and light play.

But safety first! We want to ensure that everyone enjoys their pool time to the fullest, which is why we kindly ask that there be no running, jumping, or horseplay in and around the pool area. With a maximum depth of 4 feet and convenient underwater seating platforms, our pool is a haven for relaxation, not high-energy antics.
