Our lovely beach home is a duplex. It is perfect for two families vacationing together or one big family to spread out! We refer to the two sides as Sunrise and Sunset which together comprise The Anchorage. Our beach home boasts tasteful, tropical, airy furnishings. Relax on the lanai, dine under the large umbrella-ed deck or take a cool shower in your own private, outdoor shower.
Just steps to the beach for some of the best shelling in the country, midnight star gazing and awesome sunset celebrations all at half
the cost of staying beachfront. We have 2 beach carts to carry your treasures (kids, coolers, towels, chairs, etc) to the beach effortlessly.
Here's the basic layout of our beach home which rents in its entirety:
Right Side (Sunset)
You can enter the right side of the house (Sunset) through the screened lanai. There are two bedrooms on the ground level floor. They are best described as suites. Both offer views to the in-ground swimming pool and have separate outdoor entrances. The suites can be connected to each other through a door that can be left locked for privacy or open for company. Each of these bedrooms has its own half bathroom, queen bed, living area consisting of chair, couch and TV as well as small lanai. Suite #2 has a bonus room consisting of shower, full sized washer & dryer, microwave and dorm refrigerator. The private, outdoor shower can be accessed through the hallway the leads to these bedrooms and upstairs.
Upstairs you will you find the family room, dining area with table that comfortably seats 10, kitchen, 2 decks, full sized laundry facilities, 2 bedrooms (1 king and 1 queen), full bathroom and dining area. Both decks are outfitted with tables and chairs. So, on the Sunset side, all 4 bedrooms are connected interiorly or can be locked out for privacy.
Sunset & Sunrise also have a set of double hung sliding barn doors that connect the upstairs main living areas which can be opened for convenient passage between the separate sides or closed for privacy (similar to adjoining hotel rooms that connect).
Left Side (Sunrise)
The left side of the house (Sunrise) has a separate, private entrance. Think of it as a private apartment. It contains a small deck with table and chairs, family room, full bathroom, bedroom (king), loaded kitchen and dining area. Again, it does contain a sliding barn door that provides easy interior passage to Sunset if you leave the door open …
Our kitchens have everything you need and more:
refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, stove/oven, coffeemaker, toaster, blender,
silverware and dinnerware and all the gadgets you will need whenever you are cooking in.
So, to sum up the whole house,
2 full baths + 2 half baths + 1 shower + private outdoor shower
1 bonus room consisting of a microwave, dorm refrigerator, shower and full sized washer and dryer. There are two, full size laundry facilities one upstairs and one downstairs.
2 Full sized washer and dryers, Beach cart, Free Long Distance (in US), Free high speed wireless internet access, Trolley stop for local commuting is available on every other street—never more than a 2 minute walk away, 2 Pianos and instructional materials, Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) 19 miles away
We provide enough bath and dish washing soap, paper towels and toilet paper to get you started. Since a full-sized grocery store is only a 2 minutes drive down the street you always have what you need. Of course plenty of bath towels, pillows and bed linens are also always at hand in our lovely beach home.
The Anchorage is located on Estero Island (aka Fort Myers Beach), a seven-mile stretch of ocean-front which is filled with shopping, dining and entertainment. You can enjoy para sailing, jet skiing, volleyball pits, live music, eats and drinks all within walking distance. Right down the street you will find nice recreational facilities including tennis courts, basketball, and a large pool and water park featuring water slides and lifeguards for the kids.
My favorite beach activities are biking and running along the ocean while watching and listening to the dolphins splash beside you! Our daughter still loves blowing bubbles and the all-time favorite activity of flying a kite up and down the beach. The Anchorage is located mid-island which provides a quiet, private, tropical beach experience, but is still close enough to Times Square (entertainment district) for the times when you want to take a walk on the “wilder side.”
Here at the Anchorage, you will be sure to find a perfect balance of relaxation and fun in the sun! The Anchorage is only a 2 min. drive from a Grocery store (approx. ½ mile.) A pharmacy, movie theater and medical Center are also close by. Since the international airport is only about a 25-30 minute drive (19 miles) with available taxi, shuttle and limousine services readily available, transportation is never a problem. This is an awesome location on the island – a beautiful section of pristine, sandy beach and wonderful shelling “Non-beachy” favorites include catching a movie at the theatre and put putting.
Don’t wait too long to schedule your stay here with us. The Anchorage is a fan favorite and will book up quickly!
