The Florida region
South West Florida is a wonderful year-round holiday destination and our villa is situated in South Fort Myers, just a five minute drive from uncrowded white sandy beaches. Daytime highs rarely drop below 75 F (24 C), even at Christmas - it’s a pleasure to enjoy warmth and sunshine during England’s depressing winter!
There are a number of day trips for anyone wishing to venture further afield. North of Ft Myers, there is attractive Punta Gorda and Venice; also Myakka State Park. A little further north is Sarasota with its picturesque marina and the wonderful "white sugar" beaches at Lido and Siesta Keys; then north again is Longboat Key with exclusive shopping at St Armand’s Circle. Continuing north brings you to “laid back” Anna Maria Island where you can enjoy beaches, sunsets and relaxed dining.
Heading south, you will find upmarket Naples with its lovely shops and art galleries, or take one of the many cruises which give a glimpse of the multi-million dollar waterside homes. The fascinating Florida Everglades are inland from Naples and an airboat trip is a very interesting and exciting way to explore this intriguing and mysterious “River of Grass”. Alternatively, there are naturalist-led tours or you can explore on your own.
Our luxurious home is ideally placed, just a couple of minutes drive from a choice of supermarkets, a pharmacy, banks, a post office and restaurants to suit all tastes and pockets.
There is plenty to occupy anyone enjoying pastimes associated with the ocean – swimming, sailing, fishing, dolphin spotting cruises or simply strolling along the shores, sunbathing or collecting shells, and admiring the truly outstanding sunsets. There are many challenging and attractive golf courses in the area or, for the less serious golfers, there are several well planned crazy golf courses which are a lot of fun. For those wanting to indulge in retail therapy there are shopping malls, boutiques and factory outlets nearby. There are also theatres, a sports stadium and cinemas in the area. Worth a visit are the riverside winter homes of Thomas Edison and Henry Ford, especially at Christmas when they are magically transformed by a myriad of lights. December is also a time to enjoy the local boat parades and the beautifully decorated houses and shopping malls.
Ft Myers beach stretches 7 miles down Estero Island, from the lively area round the pier to Lover's Key at the southern end and there is a trolley bus service which runs the length of the island - a fun alternative to driving oneself. Key West, the most southerly point in the States, is easily reached by the daily boat service from Ft Myers.
The villa is equally close to the causeway giving access to the unspoilt islands of Sanibel and Captiva. Apart from its fame for shelling, Sanibel is also the home of the wonderful J N Ding Darling Nature Reserve - perhaps hiring a bike to enjoy the wildlife at close quarters. It is possible to reach Boca Grande and the small island of Cabbage Key by boat from Captiva and sunset cruises are also popular.
There are many beachside and waterfront restaurants to enjoy in the area as well as the well-known chains and family diners. The choice when eating out ranges from fine dining to inexpensive.

Lovely ,clean ,comfortable house ,close to all amenities with plenty of information provided by the owners who were very helpful from start to finish,making the whole experience much more pleasurable.
House located in lovely, quiet , gated community,overlooking lake with great wildlife-nice to just sit and watch in the evening after a busy day-good for the soul.
Great position for exploring South West Florida and all it has to offer which is plenty!.
Would recommend this house without any hesitation.

"Excellence at your finger tips, beauty and serenity at its best."
Myself, and my husband have travelled to America for the last five years staying in villa's all over Kissimmee, so we decided to have a change this year, we invited my mother to joint us and decided to head for the coast. We decided upon Forte Myers and chose Brian & Cienwens villa as it was advertised as having a south faceing pool,(for all day sun) plus it looked really nice and was described as being very central to everything you would need, Supermarkets, Restaurants and the beach etc. On arrival at Beachwalk Isles, which is a gated comunity,and beautifully kept, the villa was a welcome sight and did not dissapoint, set on a lake the view was simply breathtaking and the peace and serenity that came with it was hugely welcomed, the villa itself was all you could want very clean, spacious and well kept, all in all this was the best kept villa and the best situated we have booked to date, as everything is as it says on the tin! shops, restaurants, takeaways,the post office everything you need IS REALLY within walking distance. Forte Myers Beach is five minutes down the road by car literally, and of course you can take the boat that sails every day from Forte Myers Beach to the Keys if you did'nt want to drive, but best of all is Sanibel and Captiva Islands, they are simply to die for, you have got your own mini Keys on your doorstep (ten minutes drive max) you pay six dollars to enter Sanibel and Captiva but let me tell you it will be the best six dollars you will ever spend, some of the property on these islands are in excess of fourteen million dollars to buy and five thousand dollars a week to lease, so house watching is breathtaking and dreaming even better!!! and you are situated near to loads of beautiful places to visit that would keep anyone out of mischief for the entire holiday, but to sit back and relax at the end of a brilliant days sight seeing in this beautiful villa with a beer in hand and watching the beautiful pink,orange and pale grey sunsets, the Herons, Turtles and the puddle duck family to mention but a few going about their business is without a doubt the best holiday you could wish for.
So for anyone who is thinking about it dont, just DO IT Brian & Ceinwen we found, are very approachable and will answer any questions you may have, we would certainly recomend this villa hand on heart to anyone.
