About the owner: David and I are a friendly, retired couple who live right next door to the rental unit, on the other side of the duplex. Though we are near, we are not the kind of people who are "in your face." After you meet us, you'll realize we'd like to be your friends, and we have made many, many friends by renting the unit on a short-term basis. We also have had many people come back year after year, which we truly appreciate.

We understand you're on vacation and want to relax. Unless you need information or anything for the unit, we will not interfere with your vacation. We just ask you to be respectful and courteous, as anybody would.

Feel free to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.

Why this property? Our property is located in a very convenient location; it's close to Times Square, but far enough that you're not in the congestion or noise.

Our beach access is 1/4 block away, right at the end of our street. So you do not need to use a Public Access to get to the beach.

We appreciate every guest who chooses our property. We realize there is a lot to choose from, and we thank you in advance for your interest.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q:

Are dogs allowed on the beach?

A:

Yes, if they're leashed. A few miles south there's Dog Beach, where your dogs can run and play leash free, and there's a nice beach area for you to sit and watch and play too. Please remember to always provide water for our four-legged pals.

Q:

Is there a restaurant within walking distance?

A:

Yes. There is Junkanoo on the Beach approximately 1/2 mile from the house. You can access Junkanoo from the street or the beach. It's a really funky, beachy atmosphere with great food. Next door, there's a white tablecloth restuarant called The Fresh Catch. It's excellent for any dinner, and special occasions. And remember, you're on the beach, so you don't have to get "that" dressed up. Casual is fine.

Q:

Do you have a pool?

A:

Sorry, no. But the beach is only 1/4 block away, and there is a community pool about a half mile north on Estero Blvd. It's big enough to swim laps, too! They offer water aerobics three days a week at nine a.m.

Perfect getaway!

Awesome 10 days at Ft Myers beach staying in this rental. Rental was spacious, exceptionally clean & set up perfectly for our 2 fur babies. This was our first trip with our dogs & it could not have gone better. Jill was just a phone call away which was wonderful. We also felt very comfortable with Christy & would most definitely recommend her for looking after your fur babies if needed She is a sweetheart. Ken & I hope to stay here again & highly recommend this rental.:)

luxury rental unit

My wife & I stayed here for 3 months (Jan-Mar 2022) and had a wonderful time. Jill & Dave are very conscientious and helpful. Their condo is extremely well furnished and a joy to stay in. Minutes to the white sand beach & close to the restaurants & bars. We would be very happy to stay there again.

Book it if you can

Thank you to the wonderful hosts. Friendly and informative without being intrusive Attentive and quick to respond to requests. Above and beyond the home style condo rental and so close to the beach. Great location, on the laid back end of the crazy fun ‘downtown’. A beachfront that’s not too busy this time of year. Don’t worry about kitchen amenities, has everything you will need. Very reasonable, clean, organized, comfortable and pretty. Would love to return some day.

Absolutely Perfect

From the moment my family and I stepped into this lovely duplex, we knew we found the perfect place! Jill & Dave greeted us, made sure we had all that we needed. They are a wonderful couple and it was a joy to call them friends when we departed. The pictures don't do justice in terms of size. We have a 17 yr old son and 14 yr old daughter and our dog. There was plenty of space for all. The first thing I noticed was how clean then entire house was. It felt great knowing I didn't have to worry about that - especially now. The location is perfect. Far enough away to not get caught up in the riff raff. The walk to the beach took about 1 minuet. The beach is clean and our dog loved every minute of it. We were in excellent proximity of all we wanted to do, jet skiing, dog beach, dining. The grocery store is very close as well. I would absolutely recommend friends and family to stay at Jill & Dave's. I know we will definitely be back. Perfect place for a relaxing, stress free stay in Ft. Myers.

Absolutely Fantastic Pet Friendly Home in Superb Location

David & Jill are such super host! It was a delight to meet them and stay in their home over our peaceful week. The area itself is just a relaxing easy going place. We found many shells, ate great food and really enjoyed the dog beach with Annie & Willow. The home itself, was very comfy and relaxing. The porch area was great to sit and enjoy a glass of wine in the evenings with the nice breeze blowing through. The bed was super comfy, which for me is a bonus. The kitchen was stocked with all your basic items that you would need. The beach itself is just steps away, just a great property and we will be back! Christy, thank you so much for walking Willow and Annie on the couple of days we were out for the day. Again, thank you David and Jill for sharing your amazing place. Until we see you again:). Chris, Karen, Annie & Willow

Wonderful beach house!

We had a wonderful time! Jill and David are the warmest, kindest and most thoughtful couple. They have turned that house into a beautiful escape on that wonderful island. We highly recommend it and will be coming back to stay with them for years to come!

The perfect getaway!

My husband and I originally were planning a long weekend at one of the local hotels until my husband ran into Jill one day while working. She provided us her business card and we booked a week stay later that day. We extended our stay by another week and it was totally worth it! We enjoyed the beach mostly everyday and ate at many of the amazing restaurants near by. We rarely left Estero Island unless we took a 10 min drive to Walmart for groceries. We brought along our 8 month puppy who loved the attention of our neighbors and our two young children under 10. It was a pleasant and relaxing getaway and we are sad to go. Our experience with Jill and her husband was very refreshing. We pulled up to two smiling faces and got along as if they were life time friends. She offered my daughter art supplies to keep her entertained. I hope she seen the drawing my daughter left her. I hope to visit again and very grateful for their hospitality and their generous hearts. As far as the home, it has everything you need and more. It was clean from top to bottom and there were no issues. Thank you, Jill!

Felt At Home

I and my family have stayed in this home twice and both times have enjoyed the good atmosphere and privacy. We definitely will return when we visit again. Jill and David, the owners, are very kind and helpful and always have made me and my family feel at home. The kitchen has all the updated appliances, the bedrooms are spacious and comfortable and there is a washer and dryer in the unit which we are able to use at our descression. We truly look forward to coming back to Fort Myers and seeing our Florida family.

Awesome stay!

We love this place!! I try to book it when my parents come to visit me for 1 month, and we all stay there. It has the best location, being in the middle of the island. It is close to the party area, to Publix, to the theater, to both ends of the island and almost on the beach. Also, Jill anf her husband are great hosts, very friendly and polite and accommodating. We love to cook (the kitchen is fully equipped) and to eat on the little balcony, especially in the morning when you can feel a nice breeze and watch people walking and the island come to life. It is an awesome place to stay and I am glad I found it!!

A little “peace” of paradise...

We book with Jill & David each time we visit. Very friendly people! Love the spacious yet homey feel this rental provides. It is always clean. We love that the beach is just a short walk across the street, and the beach is never crowded at that area. We have found some beautiful shells along the beach. We love walking the beach to the pier. Rental location is on a peaceful, quiet street but is still within walking/biking distance to restaurants, shops, bars & Times Square. Gorgeous sunsets & we always look forward to our next stay! So much so, that we booked twice in 2019!

If you love the island you'll love the location of this rental. It's mid island and just a short walk to a beautiful beach. The beach is uncrowded and pet friendly (on leash).Now to the rental. It is clean and spacious . The bedrooms each have a king sized bed, which is very comfortable with good quality bedding. The laundry is conveniently located in the apartment, so no carrying your clothes up and down stairs. The kitchen is well stocked with a wide assortment of pots, pans and dishes. My favorite is the screened in porch, it is large and inviting in any weather.Jill and Dave are always available to answer any questions or to lend a hand.Can't wait till March!

Perfect pet friendly home on the beach

We stayed at Jill's and David's for 3 years. We spent six weeks and it was wonderful. The house is very spacious and full of light. We have 2 dogs and they would spend all day on the huge lanai and people watch. Both bedrooms are very spacious with dressers and huge closets . The kitchen,which is open to the dining and living rooms, is well equipped for anything you may want to cook. There is also a grill for barbecuing. The beach is a 3 minute walk and very quiet. It is also dog friendly so you can take your dogs for long walks. I especially liked the early mornings.Being there was like being home-Everyone was like family! Due to medical issues, we no longer are able to go down, but 157 Anchorage will always hold a special place in our hearts.

Spacious home away from home and dog friendly!

We have stayed at Dave and Jill's unit for 4 years and couldn't be happier! The rental is large, TV's, great kitchen with newer appliances, laundry appliances, master bedroom with king size bed and bathroom. The second bedroom provides a queen size bed and bathroom. A favorite place for my dog and more relaxation or reading is the spacious screened lanai. We love being able to walk to the sandy beach. Bikes are available also. The Wed Farmer's Market for fresh produce is only a few blocks. Most of all, Jill and Dave are next door to make you feel welcome and comfortable during your stay! You'll love the hospitality!!!

Home away from home!

Home away from home! I have been coming here for years. My dog and I have enjoyed many hours on the screened lanai. The beach is close by for cool morning walks. It is on a quiet little side street, away from all the tourists. The kitchen is well equipped and open to the spacious living area. Looking forward to next year!

Home Away from Home

We’ve been staying at Jill’s place for several years now and every time we don’t want to leave. As soon as we arrive we feel like we’re home. Jill and David are great hosts and the house has everything you need for a wonderful relaxing vacation. You can’t beat the location. The beach is a short walk away and it’s on a quieter part of the island which we love. FMB has some of the most beautiful sunsets you’ll find anywhere. The dogs love their daily walk on the beach! If you want to get in the middle of the action the pier and square are just a short drive or a bike ride away. Sanibel Island is also a short drive away as well. You will find a laid back, relaxing, pet and kid friendly stay at Jill and David’s place. It has become our home away from home. Best value in FMB!
