Our detached single story villa (no stairs) is located in a prestigious cul de sac 180 yds from the Gulf Beaches. The rear of the house has 3 tall bloc sliding windows from the kitchen and lounge onto a large patio/outside dining area with barbeque,sun loungers and large heated swimming pool kept at 82 F all year-- all on one level which brings the outside in and makes for easy living.The Swimming Pool (27ft x 14 Ft) overlooks a tidal saltwater canal and from our private Boat Dock it is only 100 metres into the Bay Waters. Supervision of children using the swimming pool is much easier than a lot of other beach properties that are built on stilts, with the living accommodation on the first floor. We have fishing rods,toys and cool boxes on wheels for the perfect day on the beach or pool.
There is a covered patio area with a Dining Table and Six Chairs with Lighting and Ceiling Fan, a lot of guests dine out here in preference to the Dining Room inside.
The Villa is surrounded by lush lawns and tropical plants, together with 5 species of Palm Tree.
At Sunset (or any time!) walk to the beach with a glass of Wine,a Camera and watch the sunset over Sanibel Island & the Gulf of Mexico.
This area is known as the Platinum Coast of Florida and after visiting some of the other nearby beaches you will appreciate why some 2 years ago we fell in love with the area and in particular Fort Myers Beach and name our property 'Island Dream'
Many of of our guests over the years have said that it is the best located and equipped British owned , weekly rental Beach property in Florida.
