Before my husband and I moved to Naples, we vacationed at Ft Myers Beach. We found the most adorable and charming cottages directly across the street from the beach. We were greated by the resident cats and some other guests dogs when we arrived. Our cottage was on the waterway and was not fancy but quaint. We had a back porch right on the water and would sit there for hours watching eagles, herons and a various assortment of birds. The cottages are in walking distance of everything so you didn't have to use your car at all. The staff was helpful and printed off our boarding passes for us. The only negative is now we live in the area and can't find a reason to stay there again. We love Silver Sands!!!
