We invite you to experience our newer vacation home, located on the
north end of Fort Myers Beach (where all the action is), on a
saltwater canal. Enjoy fishing from the dock, walk to the beach (1
block from 7 miles of white sand beaches)or shopping in Times
Square. Enjoy the numerous restaurants or dancing without having to
worry about driving. Great action for both the kids and adults.
All are in close walking distance.
An artist from California built the home in 1998. The
furnishings/decor is Shabby Chic with antiques, faux finished walls,
Mexican tiles, an out door lanai, and a Jacuzzi built for two in the
master bath. Plus a new fully programmed salt water pool/spa added
in 2004 includes a closed in cage and an added deck off the upstairs
living area for more outdoor private enjoyment and party space. A
fully equipped remodeled kitchen in 2013 with lots of seating accommodates any sized
occasion/holiday needs. You will feel warm and cozy here. But
please, no smokers or spring breakers allowed!
If you would like to bring a boat, you can use the dock, at no extra
If you enjoy bird-watching/listening, there is an amazing array of
birds to view right from the deck. I have seen blue herons, night
herons, egrets, pelicans and osprey. Every once in a while you
might see a neighborhood otter, dolphin, or manatee in the canal.
It is rare that you don’t see a porpoise while taking a walk on the
beach. A walk to the tip of Bowditch Point (north point of Fort
Myers Beach) and back takes about 1hr. and 10 min. A walk I like to
do once a day for both mind and body. Or just sit and enjoy the
sun, warm water, shelling, or whatever your mood? The daily sunsets
over the Gulf of Mexico should not be missed.
About Fort Myers Beach: Fun for the Whole Family!
Fort Myers Beach, Florida, located on Estero Island, has been dubbed
the “best beach in the world,” because of soft currents, shallow
water, and gently sloping terrain (gentle surf is great for small
children). Much like Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Fort Myers Beach
is filled with tee-shirt shops, restaurants, and gift boutiques.
Outdoor activities, like water skiing, parasailing, boating,
fishing, golf, and seven miles of beautiful beaches, the main
Fort Myers Beach is also near other great vacation possibilities.
Sanibel Island, a short ferry rides away. Close to 80 miles south,
Everglades National Park makes a great day trip. And to get a great
historical perspective on all of Southwest FL trek less than twenty
miles into Fort Myers and see the Fort Myers Historical Museum.
Whatever your taste, Fort Myers Beach is a perfect vacation spot for
the whole family.
Fort Myers: Royal Palms & Industrial Legends
Fort Myers, Florida was built along the Caloosahatchee River as one
of the bases of operations during the Seminole Indian Wars. Fort
Myers was named honor of Colonial Abraham C. Meyers, the son-in-law
of the commander of Fort Brooke in Tampa. Located in beautiful Lee
County, Fort Myers has activities to whet any taste bud.
With its temperate climate and close proximity to both the
Caloosahatchee River and the Gulf of Mexico, Fort Myers is a
fisherman’s dream comes true. Snook, tarpon, redfish, spotted sea
trout, sheepshead, jack crevalle, shark, barracuda, mackerel, and
mangrove snapper are all prime targets for both inshore and off
shore fisherman. Golf courses are also in abundant supply.
Eastwood Gulf Course, designed in 1976, has been listed by Golf
Digest as one of the best public couples in the United States.
No visit to Fort Myers is complete without stopping off at the home
of one of area’s most famous citizens, Thomas Edison. He ambled
into Fort Myers and decided to build a winter home here. The
Edison/Ford Winter Estates museum houses Edison’s home, “Seminole
Lodge,” and is now a registered historical landmark. The property
is also home to Edison’s laboratory, his Botanical Garden,
his “electric launch”, the boat he used to entertain guests to the
estate, and the Edison Museum, which exhibits artifacts used by the
inventor, as well as his collection of automobiles. Tours are
available to show visitors the estate, and enlighten listeners on
Edison’s inventions (and exploits). You have heard about the light
bulb, but did you know he invented wax paper and tin foil?
Edison’s next door neighbor didn’t do too badly her himself, Henry
Ford bought the property adjacent to Edison, and the two magnate’s
families wintered together in Fort Myers. Ford’s estate, “Mangoes”,
is separated from Edison’s by a “Friendship Gate”, which came to
symbolize the close bond between the two tycoons. They entertained
luminaries such as Charles Lindbergh, Harvey Firestone, naturalist
John Burroughs, Nobel Laureate Alexis Carrel among others.
Fort Myers is rich in the history of Southwest Florida. A must-see
for any history buff is the Fort Myers Historical Museum. Built
from a converted railroad depot and opened in 1982, the museum
covers the history of the Calusa and Seminole Indians, Spanish
battlements including a cannon of the early 1700’s, and models of
the original fort used in the Second Seminole War. Military history
is also the focus for the museum’s WWI and WWII display, which
includes a recovered P-39 Airacobra fighter plane.
Due to its central location, Fort Myers is a great spot to base a
Florida vacation. Fort Myers Beach is almost fifteen miles away,
and Sanibel Island, and its pristine white beaches, is barely twenty.
Fort Myers, known as the “City of Palms”, for the 1800 royal palms
(given first by Thomas Edison) that line the streets on McGregor
Boulevard, is both a monument to the Old South, and a bridge to a
new Florida that thrives on energy and vitality; a town where you
can simultaneously step back in time, and run headlong into the
