Executive Villa With Pool And Lakeside Position Within Exclusive Gated Community

Overview

Property

Updated: 06-Dec-2016
Exclusive 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom luxury villa with private pool overlooking a freshwater lake

Our home is an open plan air conditioned holiday oasis. The living space is generous with 3 separate indoor areas to relax, read, watch tv or surf the net with our free high speed wifi. With 4 luxuriously equipped bedrooms and 3 bathrooms parties of 8 guests are easily accommodated without compromise. The well fitted kitchen has everything you need for entertaining your guests. The pool deck can be accessed from 4 separate rooms and includes a covered Lanai and heated pool with a patio area overlooking the lake.

The master bedroom features a king size bed with dressing table and draw storage. A flat screen TV with DVD player and free high speed wifi allows you to wake up slowly as you prepare for your day. The master suite also enjoys a huge en suite bathroom with 2 sinks, separate loo, shower cubicle and bath. A walk in closet completes the package.

The second bedroom features a queen size bed, dressing table and bedside draw space. A large closet will swallow your luggage, clothes and purchases. Adjacent is a bathroom with single basin and bath with shower over.

The third and fourth bedroom have twin beds with draw space and large closets and share the third bathroom with single basin and bath with shower over.

All linen and towels are included and there are plenty for bedding changes during your stay.

The family room is at the centre of the house with easy access to the three guest bedrooms as well as the den and the kitchen/breakfast area. With two comfortable settees, coffee and side tables you can enjoy the flat screen Panasonic TV which features premium cable TV and a DVD player.

The kitchen overlooks the family room so users can watch the TV and the young ones whilst they prepare a meal. With an electric cooker, microwave, fridge freezer and dishwasher as well as all the small appliances you'll need including coffee maker, toaster, electric kettle and blender we cater for your every culinary need. Off the kitchen is the utility room with a washer and dryer as well as vacuum cleaner for those little spills.

The breakfast area overlooks the lanai and has a table and 4 chairs to enjoy a leisurely breakfast.

Through the arch is the sitting room. Well away from the TV this is the quiet zone. Two comfy settees overlook the pool and the lake beyond. With tables for that coffee, tea or glass of wine, just sit and relax and 'do your thing'. We even have a good collection of books for you to enjoy. Adjacent to the sitting room is a dining table with 6 chairs for those family meals.

The final inside relaxing area is the den which has sliding doors onto the pool deck. A settee overlooks the lake behind the house.

The outside area is the place to be in Ft Myers. With a covered patio accessible from the master bedroom, sitting room or breakfast area you can enjoy the view in all weathers. We have a new toughened glass patio table with 6 chairs to enjoy meals or a friendly game amongst friends and family. The pool beyond is approx 30ft long and 14ft wide. It has a safe shallow end for the none swimmers and a 5ft 6in deep end for the more confident. A handy seat at the end of the pool allows you to sit up to your waist in the water and enjoy the view over the lake or enjoy a cool drink in the plastic outside ware we provide.

The pool is solar heated and is generally warm enough from April to October without the help of our electric heat pump. We can provide this electric heating at extra cost for the cooler months when we less hardy like a little warmer water to enjoy.

Beyond the deck is a patio area beyond the building line of the house which provides full views of the lake and the wildlife that continuously enjoy it. We regularly see Eagrets, Heron, Osprey, Pelicans, Ibis, Cormorants and for the first time this year a Bald Eagle enjoying the lake. Alligators, Otters and Snapper Turtles are also spotted frequently.

The pool area is protected by a mesh cage which keeps most insects out and cuts down some of the Sun's UV rays. Shade trees also provide protection at the end of the deck.

In the garage we have some pool toys (though we can't guarantee condition), beach chairs and parasols as well as a couple of easy rider bikes for a trip to Biscottis around the corner for a coffee or ice cream.

We supply remote controls to access the garage and the gates to Beachwalk Isles - the community where our house is located. They will be waiting for you in the house on your arrival. We just ask that you leave them behind for our next guests on your departure.

We aim to provide a clean, well maintained and comfortable holiday home for you to enjoy. We decorate and update as regularly as we can afford to make your vacation as relaxing and enjoyable as we possibly can. Universal Vacations, our Management Company, are on hand to help in emergencies and contact details are provided in the house as well as other useful contact numbers.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is our 4th stay in Osprey View and we will keep coming back. Great home, superb pool and the Ft Myers area is wonderful. Ft Myers Beach is vibrant, Sanibel is peaceful. I've become the number 1 fan of the Ft Myers Miracle baseball team! Can't recommend highly enough. Mr P Rayner, Folkestone



We visit this home twice a year in late Spring and early Winter. It's perfect. The view over the lake and the wildlife we see is, frankly amazing. The home is comfortably furnished and spacious. There's only 3 of us so we can easily find a peaceful corner, but a larger group could do the same. The pool is great and the electric heating provides that extra warmth when needed. The Ft Myers area is wonderful - far from the hustle and bustle of Orlando! Mr P Sweetman, Preston



We have visited Osprey View many times. The villa is marvellous. The beds are comfortable, we can stretch out on the sofas, the entertainment systems are perfect. The outside space is great - peaceful under the lanai, fun in the pool and a wildlife bonanza overlooking the lake. We love the local area - our bags go back full every visit! Mr R Heyes, Southport



Just had our 4th visit to Osprey View in Ft Myers. Done many different things this trip - rented a pontoon boat from Tipp Topp Isles marina and motored to Flippers on Lovers Key for lunch. The millionaires lifestyle. The house? What can we say, it's our forth visit! Mrs J Philpott, Worthing

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this villa in Ft Myers. The villa is absolutely stunning, very comfortable, beautifully decorated and maintained. The villa is large and very well equipped, there was everything we needed and more. The pool is a great size with a fantastic outlook.

This was our third visit to Ft Myers (but our first in this villa) and we thoroughly enjoyed our time here, as always. It's a great place to relax, but there is also plenty to keep us occupied.

We would love to stay in this villa again and would thoroughly recommend it.

What a wonderful villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful villa.

We would recommend this villa to all and for so many reasons...our favourites were: excellent location, well kept, great layout (4 bedrooms) and lovely pool (I could go on and on). We can't wait to go back!

On a final note...the villa's owner (Shane) was excellent and really helpful thoughout.

Highly recommended.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious and well appointed villa on a lovely gated estate. Solar heating for the pool is a welcome feature and on a hot day you are in a warm bath! What really helps are the extras such as things for the pool so our children really enjoyed playing in it, bikes and especially a cool box and ice blocks which we used for beach days. The neighbours are friendly, great location 10 mins from Ft Myers beach - but you need quarters for parking. Love boat ice cream 5 min walk away gives ridiculous size ice creams. Loads of nice beaches, food etc within easy reach. The villa is well equipped, and very comfortable. The main bedroom and on suite is fantastic. We have booked again for next year. Highly recommended

Excellent holiday Villa

  • 5 of 5

Home from home, there was everything we needed to enjoy our time in Fort Myers, the villa is very close to a supermarket and a few restaurants so you can walk there if you want to have a drink. The location is perfect, close to the beach, golf and shopping malls. We would definitely go again.

Stunning villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the villa for 2 weeks at the end of February 2016. It is a spacious beautiful home with many comforts and facilities so some days we just didn't want to go out! It was extremely well equipped and had everything needed for an enjoyable stay.

We especially enjoyed the outdoor area which got the sun all day long and overlooks a stunning lake which is home to various species of wildlife.

The Beachwalk Isles community was well kept and had a lovely relaxed atmosphere.

The location was great, with easy access to Sanibel / Captiva islands and many fantastic shopping opportunities! In the immediate vicinity there was a Super Target, Pharmacies and various restaurants which were within walking distance - quite unique to anywhere we have stayed previously!! We especially enjoyed the Cape Cod Fish Company and Love Boat ice cream.

We hope to return some day to enjoy the experience all over again!!

I really liked this place....

  • 5 of 5

Spacious. Good neighborhood and on a very pretty street. Backing on to a lovely lake with visiting Pelican and White Ibis. Close to Sanibel Island (15mins) without the Sanibel price tag. Also great communications from the friendly English owner and an easy transaction with him. My kids loved the pool and the nearby ice cream shop (Biscotti's). What I also liked about the location was that Americans also lived in the neighborhood and it wasn't just a holiday complex type place - though there are a few other holiday rentals there. Only just over an hour to the edge of the Everglades. Also, Manatee Park is nearby and well worth a visit - hire a canoe for $25 and get up close to these very special mammals. We spent four days at the theme parks in Orlando and then a week here at this really great villa. A perfect combination and holiday.

Location

From the Owner

As avid viewers of a 'Place in the Sun' we always aspired to owning a property in Florida. In 2002 we travelled to Cape Coral after watching a family buy a property there. After a few days of property search and finding nothing suitable we had a day off and travelled to Sanibel. On the way back we stumbled across Beachwalk Isles and after viewing the community and the show home we bought our property. Very 'spur of the moment' but a decision we have never regretted. Since our property was completed in 2003 we have visited twice a year around work. In that time we have grown to love the area and enjoy sharing our home with others to allow them to explore our little piece of Ft Myers and hopefully develop the same love for this 'little piece of paradise' as we have.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Ft Myers at 16 Miles Nearest Barpub : Roadhouse Cafe at 0.7 Miles Nearest Ferry : Key West Express at 4.4 Miles Nearest Golf : Shell Point at 4.5 Miles Nearest Motorway : I75 at 11 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Rib City at 0.4 Miles Nearest Beach : Ft Myers Beach at 4.7 Miles Car: necessary

Coast/Beach:

Ft Myers Beach is a huge white sandy beach just a 5 - 10 minute drive from our front door. With a pier, bars, restaurants and shops in the centre of the town a day at the beach can be as busy or relaxing as you wish. Jet ski rental and para-sailing are available at FMB. Sanibel is also 10 minutes drive away across the causeway. Sanibel beaches are quiet unspoilt white sand. They don't have the facilities that FMB enjoys but are glorious. Captiva island connects to Sanibel.

Travel:

As in most parts of the USA a car is essential. Once at our villa you can walk to local facilities quite easily but for local exploring a car makes life much easier. Travelling to our villa is practical from most of Florida's International airports. Orlando is 3 hrs drive away, Tampa, Miami and Ft Lauderdale are 2 hours drive and Ft Myers is just 20 minutes.

Distances:

Downtown Ft Myers is 20 mins by car. Naples is 45 minutes. Everglades 80 minutes. Nearest movie theatre is at Bell Tower Shops and is 10 minutes (Gulf Coast Centre movie theatre 15 minutes, Coconut Point 20 minutes). Publix Supermarket 10 minute walk or 2 minutes in the car. Nearest restaurant - Rib City 10 minute walk.

Further Details:

Florida is a large State and offers many leisure activities for visitors. It would be wrong to say you can tour Florida from our villa but there is so much to do and enjoy in the Ft Myers area that any length of stay would be as action packed or leisurely as you desire. We can advise on what to do based on our experiences and we provide information on local attractions in the family room of our villa.
