About edith lovie

As we live and work in France in the property business, we are always on the lookout whilst on holiday. Found this gem in Fort Myers and that was that.

edith lovie purchased this villa in 2009

Why edith lovie chose North Fort Myers

At the beginning of 2009 we finally found our home. The view from our own dock stretches over water where fish are jumping constantly. From the master bedroom you wake to the sunrise and the wonderful expanse of water. A truly spectacular setting.

What makes this villa unique

The property having its own boat dock is a paradise for those who love to be on the water, sailing or fishing.You can access down town Fort Myers with all its restaurants and bars from your boat in 20 minutes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

hi edith, just arrived back from florida today. firstly thankyou for returning my cheque deposit. we had a wonderful stay in your beautiful villa. the whole family thought it was stunning, myself and my husband espeically so as we had the master suite and on many mornings drew the blinds and enjoyed watching the sun rise. the whole holiday was just perfect and you are so lucky to own such a beautiful property. once again thankyou so much for such happy holiday memories and hopefully we will be able to go back again.tina and familyxTo wake up in the morning and look out across the lake... made it hard to get out of bed, in fact Beverley often laid there reading a book whilst I amused myself fishing on the lake.



We had a lovely time and look forward to returning in the future. Please pass on my sincere thanks to Mike and Debbie for making us so welcome - back to work tommorrow!

Very nice. Deck area outside is very nice

A nice home and outdoor area where we spent most of our time. We very perfect. Saw dolphins several times off the dock. Neighborhood was very quiet. It was a long way to the beach if you want across to that with a shirt drive.

We didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

A lovely holiday home from home with excellent facilities. We stayed at the home some days rather than going out sight seeing such is the relaxing atmosphere and view. Highly recommended even though it is a distance from the beaches.

Fabulous view from a really nice deck. The home was also beautiful it exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

First I would like to thank the owners Edith and Paul for sharing their home with us. It was just like the pictures only better. Sitting by the pool enjoying the view of the water while trying to catch a view of the jumping fish way cool. It was hard to leave today and come back to the cold weather of Minnesota.

Thanks again for the use of your home!!!

Lovely villa, lovely location

  • 4 of 5

This house is well equipped and has everything you need for a stay in Florida. We only stayed for a short time but we lacked nothing in the way of equipment and space. Everywhere was lovely and clean when we got there and there are instructions for all the appliances, and there are lots of them!

The location is great for visiting nearby islands of Sanibel and Captiva, they are beautiful!

We liked the local marina for nighttime eating, try the Nauti Parrot, food was good and the parrot is so funny!

We had a problem with the pool heating being set too low, so if you've booked that, check the temperature when you arrive, it should be set to 86 to feel the benefit. The owners leave details of people to contact if you have any problems, which we did about the pool, and he came round the same day to sort it.

Couple of negatives for us: We like to sit outside in the evening so the lack of a bug shield around the pool and patio really meant we couldn't, so if there was anything to feed back it would be that.

Also, the bed in the front double is very creaky, not conducive to a good nights sleep as you only have to move slightly and it creaks horribly.

That said, it is a super relaxing place to stay, we loved it. The deck was lovely to sit on and watch the jumping fish, and every so often Mr Turtle pops his head up. We weren't lucky enough to see manatee or dolphin though.

Perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

My 80 year old parents, my sister, my hubby and I truly enjoyed our stay at the villa. We were down in Fort Meyers for three nights for my nephew's wedding. Perfect time of year: not too hot and not very busy. Speaking of perfect...the villa is amazing, especially with incredible views of the canal. Wow! The dock, patio and deck are incredible gathering areas. Also, the pool provided a refreshing respite from all of our activities. We spent every available minute outside soaking up the sunny skies and warm breezes. The house itself is nicely furnished and laid out. There was plenty of room for all 5 of us. The two full bathrooms are large and up-to-date, while the beds are extremely comfortable after a busy day. Also, the full bathroom in the pool house is great to have so close by when out enjoying the sun. The kitchen has everything you need to make meals right there. Honestly, I have no complaints at all. You will NOT be disappointed with this villa. Thank you, Edith, for helping make our, mini-vacation a memorable one.

Wonderful

  • 4 of 5

Really loved this property and was quite happy to spend a lot of time at the villa just relaxing. The pool area and outside space was excellent and we enjoyed fishing from the dock. We did not encounter any issues in relation to the home with the only negative drawback being the villa was quite a distance from the beaches with at least a 30 minute drive. That said, we got used to the commute once we found our bearings and coming back to the villa was a bonus. Highly recommend Fort Myers Beach and also Sanibel and Captiva for excellent beach days. A lot of previous tenants recommended Marina town for live music on the water, we hated it, awful place with a lot of drunken people and bad live music, but each to their own, just not for us. I would definitely recommend a stay at this villa and we hope to return some time in the future.
