Private, beautifully decorated tiny house in sunny southwest Florida, near downtown with lots of restaurants and shopping. Short walk to public golf course and community pool. We are about 30 minutes to Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel Island. You’ll love our place because of the location, the people, the ambiance, the outdoors space, and the neighborhood. Our place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.

The space

This space is a charming cottage, or tiny house, behind the main house. The cottage is one room with queen-size bed, table and two chairs, mini fridge, coffee pot, microwave oven, TV with cable, everything is spotlessly clean. The bathroom is in the main house, in the back, just 5 steps from the cottage and the bathroom is closed off from the rest of our house while you are in residence, so it is your private bathroom. It is new as we just added this to our house. There is of an abundance of towels, shampoo and conditioner, first aid kit, hair dryer and iron. If you need anything, just ask. You will have an umbrella to use if it is raining.

Guest access

Guests will have the private cottage, bathroom, use of the yard, and a parking space off the street, just steps away from the cottage. You may use our laundry room, if needed.

Interaction with guests

Steve and Beth are retired, but very busy. We are available to help for anything you may need. We know the area very well, having lived here 30+ years, and we have brochures and maps of the area for our guests. We can recommend restaurants and the area attractions, of which there are many.

If we are not home, just call on our cell phone. Our dog Gypsy barks when guests arrive, but she will calm down within minutes. She is harmless and very sweet, and she responds well to treats and praise.

Other things to note

We can loan you beach chairs and beach towels. Sanibel/Captiva Islands and Fort Myers Beach are about 30 minutes away by car. Conveniently located only 30 minutes from Southwest Florida International Airport, 10 minutes from Downtown River District and night entertainment. In addition, movie theaters, dining, shopping (Edison Mall, Bell Tower Shops, Miromar Outlets, Coconut Point Mall). Boston Red Sox and Minnesota Twins spring training ballparks are in Fort Myers, each park just 20 minutes away.

Beth, and her husband Steve, are the sweetest couple! They made me and my guest feel so welcomed. They checked up on us, brought us snacks, and made sure our trip was easy and we had access to a shower, bed, and other things we needed. Definitely recommend! You won't regret it.

Staying with Beth and Steve was a wonderful delight. My flight had gotten delayed 10 hours, but they were very understanding with my check in time. Beth had cookie brownies baking for me when I arrived, and it was delicious! Steve was such a hoot to talk to, we shared stories and laughs for hours on end. Their place has a private room in the back, that was perfect for what I needed. Quiet neighborhood in a central location, with plenty to do within minutes away. Definitely highly recommended!

I stayed at Beth and Steve's for 6 nights. I loved having my own quiet private room which was not attached to the house but a few yards from the house. The bed was so comfy and the streets so soft. While I didn't have time to watch the tv I had WiFi and cold air conditioner. I loved having the small fridge and microwave. Beth made sure I had plenty of water bottles as well as some snacks, coffee available every morning as well as yogurts and muffins. My own private bathroom was in the house, again just a few yards from my room, and very nice. Beth n Steve are very friendly, kind, helpful and informative good people. I so enjoyed Beth's artwork!! Now that I am home I am sooo enjoying the beautiful bracelets I picked up that she makes as well as Steve's very interesting book he wrote!! I sure hope I am able to visit there again! Thank you Beth and Steve for everything!!! :-))

Beth & Steve User ProfileBeth & Steve is a superhost.

Steve and I have been married for 5 years and we are both retired but we have so many activities! Steve is a Hall of Fame boxing trainer and author, and works 5 evenings a week at his gym in Fort Myers. He spends his days doing research for the Florida Boxing Hall of Fame and working on his next book, along with working around the house and yard - we always seem to have a project or two going on. I am an artist and jewelry designer, selling my creations on Etsy and Handmade at Amazon under the shop name BethExpressions. I enjoy refinishing furniture, baking and gardening. I also volunteer every Tuesday at Ronald McDonald House Charities, baking cookies for the families that stay there.

Steve and I love to eat out and we plan to eat at every restaurant in Fort Myers at least once before our lives are over. That is a tall order because Fort Myers has so many restaurants.

We also love baseball; the NY Yankees are our favorite team, but we love watching all baseball.

Steve and I love visiting with family. We have 4 daughters and many sisters and brothers who like to visit from all around the country.

We look forward to meeting people from all over the world, from all walks of life. Please let us know how we can make your stay pleasant.
