Give as a Gift

Private Beach Bungalows on Island Off Florida Coast

When #1 Island Hideaway owner Rhonda Wyatt first came to Fort Myers Beach on business in 1994, she decided she had found paradise. The town is set on the 6-mile-long Estero Island, just off Florida's mainland on the gulf side. Because the strip of land is no wider than a block in most parts, the beach is never more than a short walk away. Thought Wyatt was instantly taken with the sunny locale, it wasn't until 2004 that she would own a piece of her paradise by purchasing the resort. Inside one-bedroom units, glass doors open onto lanai porches, where you can soak in ocean breezes from a comfy chair hammock. Both the Sunset and Starfish units feature a full kitchen stocked with appliances, dishes, and utensils. Visit the resort's seasonal herb garden for a fresh supply of rosemary, grapefruit, and pink pineapples, venture to nearby restaurants for dinner, or stay close to home and have a cookout on one of the courtyard's barbecue grills.

There's a private beach just steps from the resort where you can paddle a kayak or simply lounge beneath the shade of a wide beach umbrella. Beach cruisers are also available for rental, so you can explore the island’s coast at your own pace.

Fort Myers Beach, FL: Barrier Island Town with Wide, Sandy Beaches

Two bridges connect Estero Island to Florida's mainland, but you just might find yourself opting to stay put. One of the biggest draws at Fort Myers Beach is its wide, sandy coastline, which is fronted by a boardwalk filled with tourist shops and restaurants. A popular way to take in the scenery is to board a kayak and paddle your way through Estero Bay's inlets for glimpses of mangroves and dolphins. At the southern tip of the island sits Lovers Key State Park, once only accessible via boat, but now also by car or tram. Keep your eyes peeled for the abundant wildlife in the region, such as West Indian manatees, marsh rabbits, and bald eagles.
