About Owner / Property Manager
I am a retired elementary school principal. I enjoy renovating old houses and keep busy in NW Ohio with kids and grandkids.
Owner / Property Manager purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Owner / Property Manager chose Fort Myers Beach
Location, location, location (...as well a wonderful new pool!) This property as a whole has three great units...the biggest is the boathouse and can accommodate a large group very easily. Completely furnished and has a washer dryer on the premises for laundry as needed. Within quick walking distance of the beach and practically everything else you'd need on the island including the trolley which stops .1 mile from the front door.
What makes this Cottage unique
The trolley, grocery stores nearby, awesome restaurants, and activities and nightlife too many too list. There is something for everyone when you stay here, and we will make sure you find everything you need to have the best vacation ever! You WILL come back year after year!!

Overall nice place. Little things I did not know laundry was coin operated outside. Did not have change. Walls in house did not go to celling. Not great for privacy. Bait trap hanging from porch smelled but if put them in the water it was ok. Locks on doors to house front and back seemed like they where going to break. Broken window in second room all boarded up. Made it seem like house was broken into. Hot tub was same temperature as pool. But very clean and enjoyed it. Other guests in property attached where all very nice. WiFi worked great. Location was great for walking to beach and shops.
Boathouse with a great view
We enjoyed our stay. The rental was equipped with everything needed. I didn't give 5 stars due to some repairs are in need on the deck, the pool and hot tub were consistently cloudy, and several outdoor chairs were broken. The chairs were removed quickly and a spa specialist came out immediately when it was brought to owners attention. Although Timing is everything....we will avoid spring breakers next year.
So cool house, great location and perfect amenities!! All the family, adults and kids enjoy a lot.
From the start to end we had a fabulous time staying at the boathouse! Check in was super easy. The one issue we had with the internet was fixed literally within minutes of me calling. The pool/hot tub were great too! The place was spotless and super tidy, plenty of towels, good air conditioning too. 1 block from the main road on fort myers beach right by restaurants and bars and miles and miles of beach!!! Dave was the best property manager we could have had too! Fixed the internet and allowed us to store our stuff on Sunday. We had a little later flight and didnt know what to do since check out was 10 am. Dave let us keep our luggage stored so we could be checked out for the cleaning people to come. Seriously so so nice of him! Then, to top it all off as we were driving to the airport one of my gal pals realized she forgot her sandals and mini clutch behind. Dave offered to mail them to her. Thankfully we had just enough time to run back to get it but it was so kind of him to offer! The weather was perfect, everyone we met was so kind and we loved our mini vacation! Thank you again for letting us stay at our property! What a cute place! We loved the glass bottom floor as we watched fish swim underneath of us!
Thank you so much for staying at our property and for the detailed positive response. We appreciate hearing about great vacation stays and hope you will consider coming back soon, as many guests do. So glad Dave took good care of you! Thanks again.
What a fantastic and adorable boat house! I was surprised by how spacious it felt.
I would rent this over and over again. Absolutely charming and quaint. Very short walk to the beach. The pool is literally eight steps from the door!. Sitting on the canal in the mornings while drinking coffee, very calming!
The owner was responsive to any needs we had.
This house easily accommodated my large family. Two bedrooms but there's a Murphy bed in the wall in the living/ dining area. How genius! I would (and will!) recommend this house to others. We also rented the upstairs apartment at the same location. Told ya, large family! It couldn't have worked out better. Separate the kids from the teens or adults. Peace! If you have a huge group I suggest you inquire.
My family is lucky to have happened onto this charming boat house!!
HAD A GREAYT TIME, AWSOME PROPERTY, POOL, BEACH, FISHING WITH THE KIDS COULD'NT HAVE RENTED A BETTER PLACE . I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE BOAT HOUSE.
Thank you! Please come back soon!!
Sits on a canal, less than a minute walk to the beach, and a few more minutes to Times Square and Pier
