Location description from owner
The Southwest Gulf Coast region
South West Florida is renowned for its white, safe family friendly beaches with gently shelving warm turquoise seas. There is something for all members of the family and amongst the many activities to enjoy are, Golf, Bicycling, Boating, Fishing, Canoeing and Kayaking, Air Boating as well as other beach based water sports. There endless shopping opportunities including Designer Outlets for those fabulous bargains. There are also many chances to see the local fascinating wildlife in specialist parks and there is the world famous Everglades national Park within a short drive. The laid back beach towns offer numerous bars, cafes and restaurants.
The climate is superb being warm in the winter and hot in the summer (although humidity does increase in the summer months) usually set against blue sunny skies. The Florida sunsets can be spectacular with many colours of the rainbow reflected in the sky.
We are only a 2 hour drive from Tampa and its Theme parks and 3 hours from Orlando with its many attractions. many people come here to relax after doing Disney and discover the unique lifestyle this area offers and many come back here for their longer holidays.
Our home in Fort Myers (which is situated in a quiet gated community of individual detached houses) is superbly located to take advantage of the beach (less than 4 miles away), the newly renovated Art Deco area of downtown Fort Myers with its many restaurants, bars, cafes, theatres and venues showing musicals is less than 8 miles away.
The winter homes of Henry Ford and Thomas Edison are nearby and offer a unique insight to the private lives of these two famous men.
There are over 30 Golf Courses in the area along with 3 mini golf opportunities for those less serious about the sport.
There are two designer Outlets, one (Tanger) is less than 5 minutes drive from our home and the larger one (Miromar) is less than 30 minutes drive.
Ft Myers beach is a lively fun place with lots of bars, restaurants, cafes and shops at one end of the beach and very tranquil and quiet at the other end.
Less than 10 minutes drive away there are the beautiful islands of Sanibel and Captiva with their upscale homes and restaurants. On Sanibel you will find the Ding Darling nature reserve. Also nearby are other nature reserves such as Corkscrew, Babcocks and Lover's Key. Within an hour you can also be sampling the unique city of Naples with its beautiful historic district with its many chique boutique shops and wide variety of bars and restaurants.

“Our perfect holiday”
We and our family [ total of 6 ] arrived at the Halcyon Days Villa and immediately knew we had made the correct choice.It is a wonderful place to stay,very spacious with a great layout of rooms and a high standard of facilities.It is set within a very peaceful secure and pretty location with wonderful views from the main room out over the pool onto the lake, The standard of cleanliness and facilities is superb with a great pool to swim in and books/TVs DVDs/board games etc to keep people of all ages occupied if you want to stay in at night or the weather is not great Its location makes it easy to cycle or walk [5-10 mins ]to supermarkets[ Publix and Target ] and Chemists if you do not want to drive. You are also a short drive to several shopping Malls to get all the bargains. The location also makes it easy to visit beaches and towns near by [ Sanibel and especially Naples were our favourites]. Lastly we cannot thank Sandra and Peter enough for their help throughout the booking process,also the advice and instructions regards the Villa and the tips they gave us to help us during our stay,they were a superb help to us with nothing being too much bother. Now back in a slightly cooler Britain but already plotting our next visit to Halcyon Days and our next perfect holiday.
Dear Tommy and Shaerin We are so pleased that you and your family enjoyed your holiday at our home in Fort Myers. We try to ensure that the house and our advice is always of a high standard. We hope to welcome you again to our home in the future. Kind regards Pete and Sandie
