Charming, Sophisticated, Peaceful and Perfectly appointed!! This lovely 2 bedroom, den, and 1 bath cottage have been renovated with a designer's touch to be luxurious and comfortable while still maintaining its charm. Every thought has been given to the enjoyment of island lifestyle. Relax or nap on the screened porch, grab a shaded hammock on the shell covered ground level, spread out a seafood banquet on the picnic table or enjoy cocktails under the huge banyan tree that covers the outside deck. Please note, there is a one-month minimum stay requirement.
You are only a few steps away from the sugary white sands of the Gulf of Mexico and only a short walk to the Bay at the other end of the street, perfect for fishing. This mid-island location is convenient to shopping and restaurants on both ends of the island.
At any time of day, you’re likely to see dolphins and manatees swimming among the boats, pelicans diving for fish, and seagulls soaring overhead. Also within a short drive or 30-minute walk is Fort Myers Beach’s Times Square area. Abuzz with outdoor eateries, shops, nightspots, and street performers, it’s the place to see and be seen--and you don’t have to worry about traffic or parking to get there!A little farther north is Bowditch Point Park. When you’re not hiking or canoeing among its trails and waterways, you can visit its butterfly park and tortoise area. That’s if you can tear yourself away from Victoria Cottage's dreamy patio area. Lush with palm trees and bamboo, it offers multiple shady nooks and sunny spots to relax with a book, play hide-and-seek with the little ones, and enjoy a romantic drink with that special someone. When you’re not sampling Times Square’s myriad restaurants, you can savor an alfresco dinner on the balcony.
The salt-tinged sea air and the breeze murmuring through the leafy palms make every meal a special occasion! Maybe that’ll give you the incentive to head to the pier for a spot of fishing---there’s nothing like fresh-caught flounder cooked on the grill!If you prefer to cook and eat indoors, we’ve got you covered. Victoria Cottage’s dining room has a table that seats 6 on well-padded chairs that will encourage you to linger after the meal with a coffee or a glass of wine.
The compact kitchen has everything you need, from a glass-top stove and countertop convection oven to pots, pans, and tableware, whether you plan to cook barbecue or simply reheat leftovers from the previous night’s restaurant meal. No doubt you’ll be spending most of your days outdoors. When it’s time to come inside, though, the living room is a delightfully comfortable place to unwind. Once you sink into one of the roomy armchairs you may never want to get back up! Fortunately, you can keep yourself entertained with the HDTV and the wireless web access. The master bedroom has a king-size bed, the other 2 twin beds. There is also a bonus futon sleeper sofa for 1 or more guests.
Fresh bedding and towels will be ready and waiting; if you want to take a shower or a nap as soon as you arrive, go right ahead! Among Victoria Cottage's other amenities are a full-size washer and dryer: Why waste time at a Laundromat when you can be at the beach. There is also a propane gas grill and the owner has beach chairs with a beach buggy for guest use.
Glorious grounds, a beautiful balcony, the beach and plenty of attractions just a short walk away: There’s so much to love about Victoria Cottage at Fort Myers Beach. If you’re ready to feel the love yourself, book your stay today--before someone else beats you to it!+ More
