Speedy Turtle

STR #22 -0347

If you want a taste of the SW Florida beach experience - come stay with us at his beautifully remodeled, quiet mid -island property, offering everything you need for a great beach getaway!

Welcome to the "Speedy Turtle" - a beautifully remodeled tri -plex property in the heart of Fort Myers Beach. This unit called "Gulf View" is on the top left of the building. On the top right of builing is an additional apartment which is the same size as this unit and is available to rent separately; on the bottom is an additional 2 bedroom/1 bath unit, also available to rent separately. If you are traveling with a group or another party and would like to rent either of the other 2 units, please reference the VRBO listing numbers 9599442ha and 9498715ha for availability.

It's all about LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION - this unique cottage is mere steps to the sugar powdery beaches of Fort Myers Beach, just head west out of the property, cross the street and start enjoying the sand between your toes! With many close by amenities such as restaurants, shops, bars and the island grocery store - you really can't find a more convenient spot!

This apartment is just under 800 square feet and can accommodate up to 6 people, or it can be a perfect romantic getaway for two. You will love the feeling you get when you enter this bright and beautifully remodeled property. After a day at the beach you can come home and enjoy your 2nd floor deck surrounded by beautiful palm trees. Located just off the kitchen you can dine alfresco at the table with sun umbrella for shade. It's also the perfect place for your morning coffee or a tropical cocktail in the evening - with partial view of the western sky over the Gulf as the sun begins to set.

The living room has been furnished with a brand new power reclining sofa and love seat - perfect for putting your feet up and relaxing as you watch TV (with cable package.) For the cook in the family the kitchen is a cooks delight with everything one will need to cook either a gourmet meal or a quick lunch. It has a breakfast bar with 3 bar stools and a Bistro table that seats 4.

The first bedroom has a queen bed and Smart TV, the second bedroom has 2 full size beds.
The bathroom has a combination bathtub with shower.

On the ground level, underneath the balcony of the apartment located on the right side of the property is an open lounge area that includes outdoor sectional seating, a hammock and fire pit table. This common area is shared space by all guests of the Tri -plex.

This property sits on the first block of a side street just off of Estero Blvd - the beach access is literally just steps away! When you aren't at the beach, you are close to local bars, restaurants, coffee shops, shopping, and boat/water sport and bicycle rentals. The island's grocery store, Publix, is just half a mile away from the cottage. You're also just a short distance to the popular Times Square and the iconic Pier, which is the heart of Fort Myers Beach. You'll enjoy the daily and nightly activity, kids especially enjoy the street performers that frequently set up there to entertain, and everyone enjoys the people watching!

Take the Island's Beach Trolley street side to wherever you wish to explore on the island, including family amusements, movie cinema, day or sunset cruises, fishing charters and casino ships, numerous restaurants, happy hours and entertainment venues. Don't forget the day ferry excursions to Key West, and a trip to the Everglades!

Drive south off the island to Lover's Key State Park, Bonita Springs, and Naples; north off the island you'll find the pristine beaches of Sanibel and Captiva Island; you'll also want to visit the newly revitalized downtown Fort Myers - a great spot for dining and nightlife. Fort Myers is also home to the Spring Training facilities of the Minnesota Twin, the Boston Red Sox, and lots of golf!

A trip to Fort Myers Beach has something for everyone. You'll fall in love with our tropical paradise!
