This updated and charming studio apartment is located on the ground floor (no stairs) in a multi-unit building. It’s located in a desirable & quiet section of the island that’s quite popular amongst vacationers, recognized for its combination of being away from the crowds, yet in very close proximity to one of the nicest sections of actual beachfront on Fort Myers beach. The unit sleeps 2 with its 1 queen bed, has a private exterior entrance and has a generous size private bathroom. The unit is fully renovated and well equipped with practically everything you'll need for you beach vacation.
Remodeling has just been completed and much of the apartment is brand new. The bathroom was torn out and updated with an entirely new and modern replacement. It features new vanities and beautiful turquoise vessel sinks. There’s also new tile flooring, new mirrors, new toilet, and a totally new shower with unique patterned tiles. It also has a new frameless shower door and a unique new European showerhead with extra jets. All the lighting has been thoroughly updated as well including in the new drop ceiling, with its hidden LED lighting. There’s new pendant lights in both the bathroom and the kitchen and a very unique and modern halo chandelier centerpiece too.
Many if not most all of the little items throughout are brand new as well. New nightstands, lamps, blinds, entertainment center, coffee table, barstools and a brand new 50” 4k TV too. There are new sheets, towels, pillows + bedding. New kitchen pots and pans, dishes, silverware, cookware, blender, glasses and more.
Kitchen with it's quality wood cabinets, granite counters, full size fridge and full size stove and oven were all added in 2016, so they are all newer as well.
Full cable television including HBO and Netflix is included. Wi-fi is included as well.
This studio apartments measures approximately 500 square feet so it’s certainly a touch bigger than most island hotel rooms. Again, it is a studio unit so bear in mind there is no separate bedroom, though it is a good size room with ample closet space and storage. It also features the biggest bathroom of all the units available in this building. It is a first floor unit so stairs are not an issue. There is another unit above it and this is a frame building so yes, you may occasionally hear the occupants in the unit above however the unit was remodeled adding a double layer drywall ceiling and 10 inches of insulation between the units for superior sound control. Everything has just been freshly repainted as well.
There’s an undeniable beach charm to this unit with its décor and coastal touches, yet it also offers a balance of modern flare. It comes with free ample parking and I've also added a notable backyard addition, adding a tiki bar and a relaxing seating area, both of which are under gazebos. It is complete with bluetooth stereo and T.V. and there’s also a BBQ grill ready for your use too. Note: this backyard area is shared with the other units in the building. There are also convenient, shared coin-operated laundry equipment located on the 1st floor as well (located through the garage).
If you happen to need something bigger than this studio apartment or perhaps you have additional friends or family that want to rent in very close proximity to you I also have two other 2 bedroom 2 bathroom vacation rentals available in this building on the second floor. Both are available for booking through this site as well, and as you will see the Seahorse Suite has a long history of many very satisfied guests and as of this writing. It features an excellent 5 star satisfaction rating, and my Mermaid Suite is a new listing that all guests have thoroughly enjoyed as well, so you can book any of my apartments with confidence.

Within just one short block of the unit you will find: Junkanoos restaurant (a beachfront restaurant for sandwiches, good pizza & drinks), the upscale Fresh Catch Bistro restaurant (Hint: try their happy hour $7 lobster mac & cheese and $5 Godiva Chocolate Dream martinis!), as well as a convenience store, a fully equipped gym (Hammerhead Gym) and jet ski rentals and Dolphin tours. There is also a bus/trolley stop at the end of the block that will take you down to the Times Square section of the beach for just $.0.75 per ride (Hint: download the ‘NextBus’ app on your phone for an up-to-the minute bus schedule).
And within just another block or two there’s also a German-American restaurant (Heidi’s), a good breakfast [and lunch] diner (The Pancake House), Mexican food, a pizza parlor, a beach equipment rental shop, a masseuse, a bank, and more. Go just a little further still and there’s a bike rental shop (Island Cycles), a full-service grocery store (Publix), the Fort Myers Beach public library and the historic Mound House with over 2000 years of island history.
1.2 miles to the North is ‘Times Square’ which serves as the Downtown district of Fort Myers Beach and is the hub of island activity. It’s just a short $6 taxi ride away, or rent a bike and you’ll be there in no time at all. Then again, since you are on vacation, it’s just a pleasant 25-30 minute walk down the beach anyway! And it’s especially nice as you catch the sun setting over the water in the evenings.
In Times Square you’ll find numerous restaurants, bars, shops & live entertainment—feel free to ask the owner for recommendations as he’s lived on the island for the better part of the last 15 years.
And the island of course has its share of additional amenities such as boat rental facilities, kayak rentals, a movie theater, sunset sailings, tennis courts and a community pool with waterslides that the kids are sure to love.
