Once you step inside Orchid House, you’ll wonder why you even considered staying anywhere else. Located on the southern tip of Estero Island, the three-bedroom house has a private enclosed pool that looks out onto a lagoon. What’s more, you can walk to both the beach and Lovers Key State Park, among other attractions.
The rear deck and in-ground pool are probably the star attraction of Orchid House. How fabulous to be able to swim and splash anytime you want, without having to share the pool with strangers! And how glorious is that view of the palm-tree-lined lagoon! After your swim, bring a frosty drink out to the deck, sit back on one of the chairs, and watch boats, dolphins, and even manatees float by. You can savor your meals out here too, courtesy of a large gas grill and a rattan-style table that seats four.
The glass doors that connect the deck to one of Orchid House’s two living/dining areas also allow you to admire the serene turquoise waters and azure skies even while you relax inside in air-conditioned comfort. Once you sink into the leather couch, you might never want to get back up! And why should—especially since there’s a flat-screen TV with cable, free WiFi, and a CD player to keep you entertained?
The dining table in this area seats four. There’s also a table in the more formal area that seats six with room to spare. This front section of the house is tailor-made for entertaining, with lovely plush seating and a
cathedral ceiling. It’s also a quiet place to sit and read while the others are watching TV or slip away for a well-deserved nap.
Separating the two living areas is a spacious kitchen that will delight even the fussiest cook. With sparkling stainless-steel appliances, a wealth of cookware and tableware, and plenty of gleaming counter space, it’s sure to spark your culinary creativity. The breakfast bar in the center of the kitchen seats four, so that friends and family can pitch in with meal prep—or at least keep you company as you cook.
With its queen-size bed, soothing ceiling fan, and restful decor, the master bedroom all but guarantees a great night’s sleep. There’s a desk area where you can catch up on emails and a flat-screen TV for watching your favorite late-night programs. The second bedroom features a pair of twin beds. The third bedroom features a queen bed, wall-mounted flat-screen TV, matching nightstands and plenty of storage. Even better - one of the living area sofas opens into an additional queen-size bed, enabling Orchid House to sleep eight people in all. Along with three bedrooms, the home has two full bathrooms. And for added convenience, there’s a washer and dryer, so you can pack light and even return home with clean clothes for a change.
Orchid House is such a relaxing, rejuvenating haven, you might never want to leave it during your stay. But then you’d be missing out on the numerous nearby attractions. For instance, just over Big Carlos Bridge is
Lovers Key State Park; you can bike there in 10 minutes, walk there in about a half-hour, and drive there in a flash. Canoe or kayak along its estuaries, bike or hike among its mangroves, paddleboard, fish, swim, search for shells and watch spoonbills, dolphins, manatees, marsh rabbits, and eagles in their natural habitat.
You don’t have to cross the bridge to hit the beach. The white sands of Fort Myers Beach are so spectacular, and the island has long been the site of the annual American Sandsculpting Championship. And at least once during your stay, you should stroll to the beach in time to watch the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico; the fiery colors seem to set the water ablaze.
For more urbane pursuits, head a few miles north to the island’s Times Square area. The place to see and be seen, it’s jumping with outdoor eateries, shops, nightclubs, and all sorts of live entertainment.
Sounds perfect, doesn’t it? Don’t miss out: Book your stay at Orchid House today!
