Oceanfront home w/ a screened-in porch, only steps from the beach!

"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!

We loved being able to walk a few steps to the beach and also be close to restaurants, bars and shopping. Vacasa took care promptly of a tub that wasn't draining and the representative was great! The porch/lanai was great to spread out our shelling finds or to just read a book and watch the ocean and people. Nice cottage, had everything you'd need...

For the 2nd year in a row we stayed at the Island Breeze Cottage for spring break. It’s a perfect location just steps to the beach. All the beach equipment you need is available for you to use including chairs, umbrella, toys, etc. The 2 bedroom cottage is perfect for our family of 4, especially with 2 twins in the 2nd bedroom. My husband and I love to take a morning walk on the beach and return for coffee on the screened in front porch. The location from the busy public beach but close enough to times square for my kids to walk for ice cream makes this cottage perfect. We have already booked to stay again next year. The countdown is on!

We have stayed here two years in a row for a week each time. You cannot beat the location, both in proximity to beach and to Times Square. It's not luxury but comfortable enough for the three of us. Would definitely recommend.

The location and screened porch were awesome. We enjoyed our stay. The kitchen and washer/dryer were great. The furniture and bedding could certainly be updated.

It was the third house from the beach and the view was awesome. Home was updated and very clean. Definitely would come back!

The house was great and had everything we needed! The bathroom is small so the house is probably best for 4 people. 6 adults would be tough in my opinion. We needed a lighter to start the grill so I emailed the property manager on Sunday afternoon. First thing Monday morning we had a lighter! The house is not directly, open the door on the beach but you have a beach view and is just steps from the beach. That was fine as well but just wanted to clarify the beach access part of the description. The house was great for our 3 adults, located a nice distance from town but still an easy walk, in a quiet area and we would easily stay here again!

We really enjoyed the stay. No complaints what so ever.

This was a great little spot for a beach vacation. Within walking distance to Times Square but very quiet. Best part was the proximity to the beach and the screened in porch. It was a lovely stat and we would love to come back next year.

You’ll be very close to the beach, shopping, and restaurants, but in a clean and quiet part of Fort Myers Beach. The cottage is quite comfortable and clean. We had a great week there and hope to return soon.

Cozy two bedroom cottage just steps from the beach. Wonderful location to access all of Fort Myers Beach activities and surrounding attractions. Highly recommended to any families for a relaxing retreat.

Eve T. Jul 2017
I had a lot of fun u can definitely tell people have bought things and left them as we did the same we left tubs for washing shells bought a broom left some toys for sand and some other things! We loved the location and being able see the ocean feeling comfortable for kids run back to house of need be! The beach wasn't crowded which was nice. Only thing I would say is the maids need move stuff and clean under as my son cut his foot on glass which we found later by a toy being dropped behind sofa there was a glass bottle stuck to ground under sofa! Other wise we had an amazing time!

We are frequent travelers to the Fort Myers Beach area and loved this home! This is an ideal location for nightlife, shopping and the beach. The private beach is in your backyard, and Times Square is walking distance. This is a comfortable beach home, and we definitely plan on returning!

This was a great unit to rent. Relaxed atmosphere, enjoyed the screened in area to relax, read and listen to the ocean every morning. Unit close enough to Time Square to enjoy, yet far enough away to relax from the busyness. . Very convenient to the beach.

We are a family of 5 that enjoyed 10 days in the beach cottage. We found it to be quite comfortable, and the location served us well. Just far enough north from the public park, but an easy walk to everything. We felt our teens could safely wander into times square on their own for sushi and that our elementary age child could wander in to the cottage from the beach and back to get a popsicle on his own. We did find an assortment of beach chairs, boogie boards and sand toys available, and purchased an extended size umbrella which we left for the next guests to enjoy. If you don't find what you want, the water sports company next door at the Best Western will rent and set up chairs and umbrellas for you daily. Traffic really is a mess on the island, and staying at this end relieves those headaches tremendously. Enjoy!

Great place for a couple. Small, but it's really all you need. Wouldn't recommend for a family trip, but it's a perfect getaway for two centrally located in Ft. Myers Beach. You can easily walk to the best spots on the beach.
Gary J. Mar 2017
Cottage is in a great location, literally 100 steps from beach and less than 10 minutes from the main pier and restaurant area. Another plus is the cottage is on the side the island with minimal traffic.

Wife spent every morning and evening sitting on the screened in porch, reading and listening to the ocean.

Great location for beach activities, access to shopping and restaurants. Being the third property back from the beach inhibits the view, but it's a very short walk.
