About the owner: We have owned 9 Emily Lane since 1994 to enjoy sunshine and a vacation get away a couple times a year. This area is so enjoyable because if you want to relax we are on the water, the deep water canal has fish jumping, Manatees and on occasion dolphins so you can relax and enjoy the sunshine. However if you want entertainment that is a short walk whether you stay on San Carlos island or walk to the beach the bars, restaurants and entertainment is endless. Party by day and relax by night or vice versa. The options are endless whether it is golf, boating, kayaking, fishing, parasailing or just relaxing on the beach it can be what you want your vacation to be.

Why this property? Location, Location, Location. My husbands dad had come to this area for many years and after we visited I was hooked. This is low key atmosphere, it is the beach where you can always find entertainment or just relax.

Ready when you get there!

The great escape is ready when you get there. Terry has meticulously attended to every detail in and outside of the home so you can just arrive and get to vacationing. Located just 1 mile from Ft. Myers Beach, quiet, walkable, and conveniently situated to anything you might want to do on the beach or around the beach.It was such a pleasure to just arrive and have everything from a small rolling cooler, beach towels, blenders, koozies, blankets, chairs and umbrellas, etc...ready for you. Saved us time and money so we could just get to our vacation away from the cold.Thank you Terry for such a nice accommodation and overall experience from my very first reach out to you to the easy and prompt return of our security deposit. You and the Mr. are the best hosts!Kim & Neil H.

Perfect location to everything!!! Beautiful and super clean home. Can either walk to trolley stop at Main and San Carlos - or there is a park and ride lot there as well. Loved being on the canal.
