Virgins’ View

If you’ve stayed in our Private Houses in other areas of Florida you’ll love this new addition to the Virgin programme. These fantastic, individually decorated homes in Fort Myers are in the small, quiet developments of Wellington or Colonial Pointe, and all are privately owned and well maintained. The houses all boast private swimming pools for quiet days lazing at home, but they’re only a 10-min drive from the beautiful Gulf Coast beaches with their white sands and gentle waves. There are plenty of amenities close at hand — the Summerlin Crossing shopping plaza with a Publix Supermarket, Walgreens and a number of smaller shops and restaurants are a 2-min drive, while Wal-Mart (great for bargains) is a 5-min drive. The Crown Colony Golf Club is a short drive and another golf club, the Lexington Country Club, is just a 3-min drive — spoilt for choice really!

Wide choice of shops, restaurants and amenities a 2-min drive from the home. Optional daily maid service (extra charge). 7-night minimum stay required.

Private solar-heated swimming pool enclosed by Lanai screens. Optional electric heating on request (payable locally at cost of $125 per week). Request at time of booking.

Fort Myers beach on Estero Island is a 10-min drive and Sanibel Island is about a 12-min drive.
