BEDDING
The home is equipped with premium King-size mattresses in two of the three bedrooms. The third bedroom comes with three Twin-XL beds and the same premium-mattresses. The Twin-XL beds are as long as the King-size beds and can also offer comfortable sleep to tall adults. No worries of who is getting the better bedroom. All linens for beds in bedrooms are supplied. Each bedroom comes with one spacious closet for your luggage and for your clothing.

SLEEPER SOFAS
Both sofas in the living room are sleepers and can be folded open to transform into two single beds, just a bit wider than a usual single bed. They will provide to you extra sleeping accommodations if needed. Please take note that I don't supply linens for the sleeper sofas and bring your own if you plan to use them.

The master bath comes with a shower, toilet and a regular vanity. The 2nd bath comes with a bathtub/shower combination, toilet and also a regular vanity.
The local cleaning lady supplies a hair dryer, two shower-towels per guest and a small start-supply of toilet paper and hand soap. Sorry, no any other towels or wash clothes. It is reflected in the lower cleaning fee compared to similar rentals. Please bring those items with you or purchase them locally at Walmart while you buying your first groceries.

LIVING ROOM
I updated in May 2015 the sofa to two new, black, fold-open sleeper sofa.

AIR-CONDITION
The living area has a central air condition with pre-programmed digital controller, which you can set with your smart-phone to your comfort cooling, based on the abilities of the cooling system of the home.

Just in case I do provide one small radiator for heating one bedroom.

WASHER AND DRYER
Yes, you have a washer and dryer. Please bring your own laundry detergent and softener. There are often left-overs from the prior guests but please don't count on it.

BICYCLES
Other as in the neighbor city Cape Coral we have here in South Fort Myers and Iona plenty bicycle trails running mostly parallel to most of the major roads. I supply basic used bicycles for free because they are very useful to get you to the next beach and to explore the area. If you need helmets or locks then please bring your own as I don't supply those. The bicycles are stored in my garage within a short 13 minutes walk.

HOUSE, GARDEN, HOT-TUB/WHIRLPOOL
The home is located in an open community, away from all the traffic of main roads but still close enough to get to them all in just a few turns.
Your entire living area and outdoor deck are in the top floor of this two-story-house. The stairs are straight and lead to the upper outdoors deck from which you enter the interior rooms. The upper wood-deck and its patio furniture dinning set invites for breakfast under blue sky and some comfortable shade under tree limbs. All floors are hygienic laid out with wood-laminate and tiles.
The backyard is western exposed and in the fenced garden you can find tropical plants, huge Bamboo and trees for a few shady spots. Besides that, you can find a power heated hot-tub/spa with LED lights, 60 jets, waterfall and sitting place for 6 people on the first floor terrace. The hot tub is for the common usage of all house guests.
For maintenance I have different contractors to support you. For example weekly pool & garden care, final cleaning- and handyman-services. Together with the arrival guide you will receive a very detailed house guide. Arrival and departure days can be any day as long as it shows open at the availability calendar. Earliest check-in time can be 3:30 p.m. and latest check-out time 10:30 a.m. It is no problem to check-in late at night because we will supply you with the electronic lock code for the entry door.

Guest Reviews

Relaxing trip to Fort Myers by Sonya T. 04/20/2016
We rented this Beach house for 2 adult women and 3 girls. The back room with the three beds was a definite plus for us because the kids wanted to be together. There was plenty of room in this rental for everyone to stretch out and it was clean upon arrival. We had a neighbor behind us that had a party one night, but being on vacation ourselves that didn't really bother us. This rental was in a very convenient location to restaurants, grocery stores, and a straight shot to the beach. This was helpful since we weren't too familiar with driving around Fort Myers. Since we had younger children we didn't really want to stay on the beach and be around the drinking and partying in the evening hours so this was perfect for us and much quieter. We went to the beach nearly every day and parked for $8.00 so the discount of this rental not being on the beach far outweighed the cost of parking on the beach and we had three times the space our friends had at their hotels on the beach. I did read the reviews before we came and I have to say for an all girls trip we felt safe here and had no problems. We didn't use the hot tub because we got burnt, but I'm sure the people downstairs wouldn't have minded if we had. We had a wonderful time and are looking forward to planning next years visit!
P.S. Bring beach towels and lots of sunscreen. Sonya
Indeed, a great time. by Nathalie and Claude 08/06/2015

Our stay has been great. by Claudette 05/04/2015
Our stay has been great. Ft. Myers is quite nice. My first time here. I don't know if I will be coming back any time soon, but you will certainly be my first choice for accommodations if I do return. I will definitely recommend you to anyone I know who is coming this way.
Thank you,

Je crois que nous étions les premiers à louer BeachShell by Claude et Denise from Rosemere, Quebec 11/07/2013
Je crois que nous étions les premiers à louer BeachShell
Nous avons eu quelques problèmes avec l’internet et la climatisation mais M. Methling a tout fait pour que ces difficultés disparaissent et, nous avons eu un séjour très agréable à Fort Myers. La maison est propre, la cuisine bien organisée… les matelas très confortables… la grande télé dans la salle de séjour et le grand écran avec l’ordinateur dans la chambre ont été très appréciés. Nous avons utilisé le téléphone internet pour rejoindre des amis au Québec et en Floride, pas de frais… quel plaisir ! Nous n’hésitons pas à recommander une location avec M. Frank M
