"Heaven is a little closer in a house by the water" reads artwork on a wall, and we think you'll agree here at Island Breeze Cottage, a charming two-bedroom, one-bathroom home with plenty of laid-back island style and room for up to six guests.
Just steps from the sugar-sand beach, this home's enviable location will appeal to beachgoers and those looking to explore the rest of Fort Myers Beach. Walk less than a half-mile south to Times Square, Fort Myers Beach's premier shopping and dining destination, explore more beautiful beaches on Sanibel Island (16 miles west), or sightsee in Fort Myers' Downtown Historic District (16 miles north).
Inspired by the tropical landscape and mellow breezes, this home's lively interior features ocean-inspired decor, overhead fans for added comfort on hot days, and casual furnishings - all in a coastal colors motif. You'll also find modern conveniences to keep your group comfortable, including cable- and DVD-equipped television, WiFi throughout, a private washer/dryer, and updated kitchen appliances.
On beach breaks, rest easy on the living area's cloth couches or recliner chair, or gather your group for a daytime show. When you get hungry, head into the well-equipped kitchen, where you'll find all the cooking necessities for quick and easy homemade meals and snacks. Serve up a fresh feast at the three-seat table or take it onto the screened-in porch for an al fresco experience with palm tree views and a gentle breeze blowing.
Countless hours under the sun will take their toll, so retreat home for rejuvenating sleep each night in either of two bedrooms. Up to six guests are accommodated on a queen bed in the master bedroom and two twin beds in the guest bedroom.
Wake to legendary Florida sunshine pouring in from picture windows and get ready for more adventures. Another sun-soaked day at the beach is always a great choice, but if you'd like to get out and explore, why not plan some fun day trips?
Head about a mile-and-a-half south for a nature hike through Spanish moss-draped coastal wildlands at Matanzas Pass Preserve, walk through family-friendly exhibits with underwater creatures at Ostego Bay Marine Science Center (one mile north), or learn about the area's natural history at Mound House (just over two miles south). Also in the area, you'll find abundant fishing charters, sunset cruises, and some of the world's best seashell collecting on Captiva Beach.
With year-round tropical temperatures and sweeping sugar-sand shores, you really can't go wrong with a trip to Fort Myers Beach. For a truly unforgettable stay, plan your next getaway in this oceanfront cottage today!
