The Southwest Gulf Coast region
Fort Myers is situated on the south western coast of Florida and is surrounded by beautiful white beaches. The sunsets here are spectacular and watching the sun set over the water is one of the most enjoyable things you can do. Thomas Edison and Henry Ford set the trend by making their winter homes here (and Fort Myers is still a very popular destination for those wanting to get away from cold winters at home.} It is a year round holiday spot enjoying temperatures above 75F (24C) even in winter. The charming islands of Sanibel and Captiva are a short drive across a causeway but if you really want to get away from it all, the unspoiled island of Cabbage Key can be reached by boat.
There are excellent opportunities for both golf and fishing locally but if you prefer spectator sports, you may catch either the Minnesota Twins or the Boston Red Sox during their spring training.
If shopping is more your thing, you're in the right place! Everything from designer outlets to Walmart to Pro Bass for the sportsman is within easy striking distance. The glamourous boutiques and art galleries of Naples are just a 40 minute drive away. 30 minutes further and you'll reach the famous Everglades, or head north for 1.5 hours and visit the unforgettable St Armands Circle at Sarasota. Why not take the ferry to Key West and spend the day there revisiting Hemingway's haunts.
Whether beaches, shopping or eating are your thing, you'll be spoiled for choice.
Shelling on Sanibel is heaven for some, for others it's the Bell Tower Shops, or those at Coconut Point or the Miramar Outlets. When it's time to eat there are restaurants for every taste and pocket.
A day out for the kids away from the beach might be to the waterpark in Cape Coral, or an educational visit to the
Edison Estate. Why not hire bikes on Sanibel or enjoy the wonders of nature at the J N Ding Darling National Wildlife Reserve. Or what about a day trip to Busch Gardens, 2.5 hours up the I -75? Even Disney is within reach. Or why not just laze about the pool?
One thing is for sure, you'll not have time to do it all or want to leave when it's time to go!

"Very nice house, lovely area, wish I had stayed longer !"
Lakeview is a very comfortable property and I was delighted with it the moment we stepped through the front door. The house is extremely spacious and well appointed. We booked it just for my wife and myself but we could easily have taken the rest of my family as well.
The bedrooms are either side of a huge "Great Room" which has the kitchen at the rear.
Everything you could want was available by way of utensils and because we watch what we eat in America (quantity), used the kitchen as if we were at home and had our meat and 3 veg.
The house also has a large patio area and good sized pool.
The property also has an integral garage which could come in handy as a play room or just to store holiday gear.
The property is located in a quiet residential area of good sized houses (all seemed different) at the top end of the housing market and is obviously a desirable area to live.
The property is owned by Europeans who make use of a property service.I had occasion to call on their assistance with a medical problem and they could not have been more helpful.
In summary - I have absolutely no regrets in renting Lakeview and would recommend it to anyone thinking of a holiday rental in Fort Myers.
Booking it was extremely easy as the owner is computer literate and everything was done online and with bank transfers.

"Lovely villa, in a great location overlooking the lake"
This lovely villa has a great pool with views overlooking the lake, with a bbq and seating area to enjoy the warm Florida evenings. It's spacious, very well furnished and has everything you need to enjoy your holiday. It's located only a short drive from the beaches of Fort Myers and Sanibel Island. Ruth (the owner) is very helpful and responded quickly to any questions we had during the booking process.
