Oceanfront Home with Screened-In Porch, Only Steps from the Beach - Dog-Friendly
Experience beachside living at its best from Island Breeze Cottage, a charming two-bedroom home with modern conveniences, an enviable location just steps away from the sugar sand beach, and space for up to eight guests!
Residing on the north end of Fort Myers Beach, this rental is perfect for sun-soaked days on the beach or exploring in town. There is a sperate lower-level cabana studio included with this home that has a queen bed, shower, and toilet. It has lower ceilings and is not as updated at the upper level with two-bedrooms and one bathroom!
On a break from the beach, flip on the living area's overhead fan and settle in for an afternoon cable TV show or group movie. You'll find comfortable furnishings throughout the home, along with modern conveniences like WiFi, a private washer/dryer, a bonus cabana shower, and updated kitchen appliances.
The excellent location puts you just steps from the beach, but if you'd like to explore outside of the immediate area, you'll find fun day trips to Matanzas Pass Preserve (just over a mile-and-a-half), the family-friendly Ostego Bay Marine Science Center (one mile north), and the beaches of Sanibel Island (16 miles west). You could also walk less than a half-mile to Times Square for a day of beachside shopping and dining!
Isn't it time for a tropical trip? Reserve this Fort Myers Beach home for an unforgettable stay on Florida's Suncoast!

Excellent location and easy beach access. We loved our vacation in Fort Myers Beach.

Screened in porch, personal parking, open floor plan to kitchen, steps to the white sands and beautiful gulf waters. Bring your bikes and ride 2 minutes to state park, shopping and restaurants.

Dave K.Jan 2021
It was awesome seeing the gulf from our porch and walking 50 yards to the beach and another 50 yards to the water! Great location allowed us to walk to all the restaurants and bars . The house was perfect for us and our guests and our dog!! We will be back soon !!

This was our 3rd time staying in this cottage and it never disappoints. Perfect location and great amenities. .
Yamilet V.Jul 2020
I loved the setup of the covered terrace for our Frenchies. Steps from the beach. We would set up our tent so that our babies would be able to see us on the beach. For sure will be staying here again.
Robert Y.Mar 2020
Loved the closeness to the beach. Very clean. Would come back.
Marye H.Mar 2020
Loved this cottage and its location.
Cindi S.Jan 2020
We loved Island Breeze. The short walk to the beach was perfect. Loved the screened in porch. Enjoyed eating in and BBQing. Close to "the action" without being in the action. Loved all of our activities: The Mound House, kayaking at Lover's Key and of course Mom's incredible cinnamon buns!!!
Rebecca P.Jan 2020
This house is at a great location. Close to Times Square but just far enough away from the beach crowd. Steps away from the powder sand beach area. Nice walk on the beach to Bowditch Point Park.
Porsha M.Oct 2019
The house was wonderful! Fit all of our needs for a family of 3 but could have easily occupied more. Perfect placement to the beach and to times square. We had an amazing vacation.
Terry L.May 2019
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!
Donna T.Mar 2019
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.
Paul B.Feb 2019
great location, all amenities were good. Bathroom a bit small, no more than two people , it works
Peggy F.Jan 2019
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.
Kathleen A K.Jan 2019
It was the third house from the beach and the view was awesome. Home was updated and very clean. Definitely would come back!
Twila S.Jun 2018
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!
JENNIFER S.Apr 2018
We really enjoyed the stay. No complaints what so ever.
Donna T.Mar 2018
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.
Douglas L.Mar 2018
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.
Elisabeth W.Jan 2018
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.
Steven W.Jul 2017
was a great place to stay right on the gulf and walking distance to everything .
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!
Kelly M.Apr 2017
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.
Anne V.Mar 2017
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.
Jeff L.Feb 2017
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.
