Why this property? Our dream home at the beach can be your vacation paradise. Relax around the pool and lanai and make our home your home.
We have stayed here 3 times. As usual it didn't disappoint. What a great home that offers everything you will need. We especially like the enclosed lani to keep all bugs out. Pool and hot tub. Good size for all the family. We really appreciate the care this owner has taken for our comfort.

Location plus amenities
Private pool and a 5 minute walk to the beach...a perfect combination. House was clean and had everything that we needed. We had unusual cooler weather so the hot tub became the happy hour meeting room each evening. Bob, the owner, is easy to work with and quick to respond if you have a question. Our stay was for 2 weeks. Would stay here again in the future.

Thank you. We hope you are able to get back to the beach. Bob
Amazing home - would recommend!
Perfect blend of a home/resort feel. The home is clean, spacious, well stocked and decorated so beautifully. The upper deck and outside lanai pool area made it feel like a resort. Bob was easy to work with, helpful and manages the property really well. The location is perfect where you have easy beach access, can ride bikes to Times Square but you have the quiet of being slightly removed from the hustle and bustle. Loved it! Thank you Bob!

20 years cancer free!
We had an absolutely wonderful week at this home! The weather was beautiful, the food delicious, and the house was so very comfortable and inviting. It is wonderfully equipped, and the lanai and pool area just topped it off. I would highly recommend it. It is a quiet neighborhood, and the walk to the beach was just a few minutes away. Mr. Matthews was very personable and working with him was a joy. We will stay there again. I am sure of it!

Paradise Family reunion
This was a great pic for our family reunion. Plenty of room for the 8 family members. We loved the pool and hot tub . The house is closer to the beach than we had thought. Walking to the beach everyday to see the sunset was great! Quiet neighbor hood. I just hope we were not too noisy. By 10:00 everyone in the neighborhood is quiet. The house had 2 refrigerators. One in the house and 1 down stairs which we fill both with groceries. The beds were so comfortable we all slept too long, The showers were great. Not one bug was found. I definitely want to go back. Bob the owner always answers his phone if you have questions. Every where we went was close. The grocery store, shopping, and restaurants. I Highly recommend this house to rent . Although I would like to keep it a secret. S o much fun !! 5 stars!! Price is very reasonable.

Thank you Lori and family. We love to hear how much fun families have staying at our house. I hope you get to come back.
Beautiful home w/screened in pool only steps from the warm gulf beaches.
My Family loved this beautiful home located mid-Estero Island (Ft. Myers Beach), in a location that was both quiet and close enough to the all attractions. The kids(older teens) enjoyed the hot tub and pool after spending the day at the beach. The house includes access to a grill and with the Publix's market only a short distance away we were able to grill and eat in the lanai while enjoying the warm fresh air of Florida without the bugs. We will be planning on visiting again.

Thank you Chris. We hope to host you and your family in the future. It was our pleasure to do so.
Great house, excellent pool, A+++
Great experience all the way around. Dealing with Bob from the beginning was so easy and great. The house was a perfect beach house and the pool and lanai area compliment it so much. The proximity to the beach, market, and some great restaurants, including the tiki bar is awesome. Can’t wait to come back next year!

Thank you for the review Mike. It was a pleasure working with you.
Fabulous outdoor space, so close to ocean!
We stayed here last month. It was a great house, beautiful pool and spa area and it was just a street over from the beach. It was so easy to walk to! My kids loved hanging around the pool! This house had all the amenities that you would need. It was close to the grocery store and to a great deal of restaurants! It had a great set up for my family. I will definitely be coming back and recommending it to my friends.

You are always welcome at the Beach Kim. Thank you for visiting our home. We hope you get back next year.
We enjoyed 2-1/2 weeks at this wonderful home! Bob is such an easy person to talk to, very responsive. We had no issues at all. You are a 3-4 minute walk to the beach. The house has everything you need: For the beach/pool, there are tons of towels, toys, chairs, carts, coolers, etc. There are more than enough linens, bath towels, dishes, cookware, small kitchen appliances, glasses, you name it and it's probably there! The beds are very comfortable. Plenty of space for everyone. And some personally important things: VERY good water pressure, and you do not run out of hot water! It gets hot quick. I had the dishwasher going and both showers were in use. We never ran out! That's so nice! Lol. There is an armoire full of things for the kids, like color books, toys of all sorts. The wifi worked great! There were tons of things running at the same time and we never once had an issue. The pool, hot tub and the entire downstairs area is just incredible. So very relaxing. (Although a small suggestion: maybe more lighting or string lights.) This home gave my family a perfect vacation. I am 100% confident you will not be disappointed! This home is at the top of my list for repeat stays! I can't say anything bad. Oh, and Bob, I loved the decor! Beautiful coastal furnishings throughout. I admired every room. I really can't say enough about how pleased we all were.

Thank you Carrie. I am so glad that you and your family had a great Christmas and New Years at our home. I also appreciate your suggestion and hope to provide more lighting in the lanai area soon. I wish I could take credit for the decor, but my wife won't let me! She spends a lot of time looking for new items and furniture to keep our home attractive and appealing for both us and your guests. We hope you will be able to return in the future.
This home is great. Comes well equipped with everything you need, ie PackNplay, stroller, beach toys, pool floats and toys, carrier to roll your items to the beach, beach towels, etc. The house is very well maintained fully equipped with household items to include a washer and dryer, dishes, dish washer, and much more. My family is already talking about renting it again next year!

Family friendly home mid-island with pool & hot tub
We are frequent visitors to Ft Myers Beach and this is one of the best private homes we have rented in the past 10 years. Our family of 6 adults and 2 grandkids were there at Christmas time. The pool and hot tub are in great condition and were in constant use during our week there since the weather was a little chilly for the beach. Short walk to the beach too to watch the beautiful sunsets! Publix grocery store, movie theater and Santini Plaza are not far. The owners are so easy to work with and you feel like you are home when you walk into the home. Some of the things we especially appreciated are the kitchen staples in the kitchen, starter soaps, bathroom tissue and paper towels, and kids' toys, etc provided. We were blessed to also be allowed use of the Christmas decorations in the hall closet! We had a wonderful week and would highly recommended renting this home. We hope to visit again in 2020.

Thank you for your review Lori. We appreciate you and your family spending Christmas at Palmetto Palms. We try very hard to make our house home on the beach for our guests.
We've rented this lovely furnished home in Fort Myers Beach many times. What a wonderful pool/hot tub, close to the Publix grocery store, basically across the street from the white sandy beach!Owners are quick to respond, house and grounds are well maintained.You won't be disappointed.

Wonderful family vacation!
This was an easy choice to rent Palmetto Palms for a second time. The home is super clean and comfortable and can accommodate a group with ease. A well equipped kitchen, handy laundry area, and of course the highlight is the outdoor space with caged pool and spa and spacious lanai. A great time was had by all. Thank you Bob for sharing your home with us once again. Marlene and Rick Paine

Paradise Inside and Out
Once you check in....you truly feel at home. Everything was clean and neat. The kitchen was very well supplied, as were the linens and bathrooms. The house is a very short walk to the Gulf, and only a mile from Publix. BUT...the best ; most enjoyable part is the huge cage over the entire back yard. The under house patio set up; including refrigeration and seating for many; is tied right into the beautiful salt water pool and spa. You almost didn't need to leave to enjoy your vacation. AND...yes you can see a small view of the Gulf from the upper deck..just enough of a clearing to check the wave activity. We enjoyed all of the meals we prepared on the patio set up there. Very Enjoyable..."Paradise Inside and Out"

Thank you for submitting your review Sally.It is always fulfilling to know that our guests enjoyed our home and had fun at the beach with friends and family.
This house is great
We stayed here in april of this year with another couple and my husband and I went back wk of Oct 13th for our anniversary, (the house is way to big for 2 people but we loved the house that much ) location is great , trolley right in front of main street and beach directly across street. There is a nice cart to load everything up for your day at the beach. The house has everything you need plus more. The pool is great and it's right there at the house. Bob the owner is great !!! We will book again next year. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Fort Myers!!

Thank you Kim. We are so glad you came back to the beach for your anniversary.
Home Away From Home
This was our third time renting the house from Bob and we couldn't be happier! We love hanging out by the pool in the lanai, evening walks to the beach to catch the sunset, and exploring the area. The house accommodates all 8 of us perfectly (5 adults and 3 kids). All of the rooms have king size beds and good sized closets. The house has a nice washer and dryer so you don't have to pack so much, It's close to the Publix, so you don't have to fight traffic to get to the store, and a short 5 minute walk to the beach. We love coming to this house and spending time on Fort Myers Beach. Thank you so much for opening your home to us! We can't wait to come back next year!

Perfect Week at the Beach!
Our family of 5 had a wonderful vacation at this well-equipped and well cared for lovely home just a 5 minute walk to the beach. We particularly enjoyed having the private pool and spa. The owner, Bob, is quick to respond and a pleasure to do business with. We are looking forward to returning next year!

Thank you Nancy. We look forward to having your family back next year.
Five of us stayed for a week, and it was awesome! The lanai area in the back was a great spot to waste away the day soaking up the sun by the pool. The entire house was beyond clean, and we had more than enough space for all of us. We could see the ocean from the upper level deck, and the walk there took about five minutes to a beautiful beach. The owner, Bob, is more than accommodating and super easy to work with. We will definitely be giving him a call for next year!
