You can see the ocean from the moment you arrive. Park your car, put on your sunglasses, kick off your shoes and walk 50 steps. Then sink your toes into the soft white sand stretching before the azure sea. Take a deep breath. Enjoy yourself. You deserve it. Let the tranquil waters of the Gulf of Mexico wash away all of your stress, all of your worries.
The backyard has plenty of tables and ample seating, as well as a BBQ. Inhale the balmy breeze as you gaze at the stars, and you unwind in a comfortable chair.
The alarm/iPod dock in every bedroom allows you to wake up to the music of your choice.
There are plenty of freshly-folded bath and beach towels.
*Here you will find: clean linens, bath and beach towels, paper towels, toilet paper, dishwashing liquid, coffee, a variety of teas, salt, pepper, sugar. If previous guests leave some items in the pantry, I leave them for the next tenants, provided they are unopened or sealed.
For supper you have a couple of options, one of which is to dine at home. You will find the kitchens well-equipped with everything that you need to prepare a great meal. Toss some fresh fish onto the grill (both gas and charcoal are available), or if you prefer, a number of good restaurants are within walking distance. One of my favorite places is Charley Boat House and Grill. They have a talented chef, large portions at fair prices, and the salad bar is included with every main dish. You can sit by a tackled nest window and watch the fish swimming past. I also suggest Pinchers Crab Shack, a bar that's tame enough for family dining.
Other establishments, including the grocery store, would be easier accessed with a car. I'm European and usually choose to walk, but for my guests, especially those returning from food shopping, I would suggest driving.
While an automobile is more convenient, public transportation is a reasonably-priced alternative. The trolley is nearby and makes frequent stops. Climb on board and head to Time Square, where the bars are hopping and the nightlife is vibrant. Two top spots on my list are Yucatan and Doc's Ford. Both serve delicious fresh fish, caught and cooked locally. The opposite direction will take you towards the Lower Keys, where you can hike, or take a kayak excursion for about $35.
When I'm in Fort Myers Beach, I like to patronize the Takeaway Bagel and Waffle Coffee Shop. Their bagels are always fresh, and their strong, fine cappuccino is up to European standards. Heavenly Biscuits There you can have a cup of coffee (not cappuccino), and sample a savory pastry, chanson roll or walnut roll. A tasty breakfast at Heavenly Biscuits will run you about $5.00, give or take. (N.B. Heavenly Biscuits only accepts cash). For dessert or a scrumptious snack, try the Royal Scoop Homemade Ice Cream Shop. Sufficient to satisfy any sweet tooth, including mine, Royal Scoop is perfect for both family outings or romantic dates. The place is open till very late to accommodate evening snacking. For dinner I would suggest the aforementioned Charley Boathouse and Grill.
