My fiance and I are relocating to Ft. Myers in early June and are looking at Forest Lake Townhomes off of Metro Pkwy between Hanson St. and Winkler Ave. Any opinions of these homes or this area in particular? Any thoughts are much appreciated. Thanks.

Not a great area. That's all I know. Sorry!

Ditto the above comment - not the best area. The free-falling prices and buyer's market should put you in a position to find a great deal in a better neighborhood than that. Keep looking! There are a lot of desperate sellers out there.

Well, what's your price range? What do you prefer to live in: apartment, condo, townhome, or house? Where will you be working?

Working at Lee Memorial Hospital. Price range of right around $800 per month. Would prefer a townhome but its not neccesary. Fiance and I are getting married in 30 days and moving down right after the honeymoon. We had a very limited amount of time to look while we were there and may not have a chance to go back to apartment/house hunt. Very nervous doing this all via internet. I really appreciate your help.

I would look in the "River District" (haha), along West First St. It would be a short commute to work and it should be in your price range. A friend of mine rents a condo over there (1br) for $600/month.

How is the River District for a single female? Safe? I've heard to head for Cape Coral or Naples is advisable, what is your opinion whippersnapper?

I love it! I feel pretty safe and I can walk to almost everything and there are days that go by where I don't get into my car yet I still do something. The only downfall to living downtown is the noise but I'm dealing with it. There are quieter buildings if you think it would bother you. I highly recommend it!

Default Area near Forest Lake Townhomes is fine

I can only think that the opinion of the area in which Forest Lake Townhomes sits comes from someone that doesn't actually live in the area or in the association. I am sure that you meant well. True, values exist for homes throughout the area, so take your pick, but the complex is fairly centrally located. Living in Forest Lake, I can say that the surrounding are is quite safe. We have a great working, preventative relationship with the Fort Myers Police officers assigned to our area. Heck, I can go running at 2 in the morning if I would like without any issues. You take the same precautions you would if you lived anywhere else. The community is very family orientated and has a common sense board of directors. Just trying to set the record a little straighter.
