As I mentioned, we are "active" retirees looking for seasonal rentals (Jan thru Mar) and some of the units want year-round tenants. We will certainly check out each of your suggestions and recommendations. Thanks to all for your help.

where is Harlem Heights I am not sure where you mean. I am looking for rent near Healthpark or Fort Myers Beach. Does anyone know how the lines are in season to beach, very long so you would not want to rent there.

Yes, traffic to the beach can be a bear during season.

Avalon Bay has homes and condos.

Traffic can be crappy if there is some kind of big event going on and weekends do tend to be busier. But right now, in the middle of season you can get over the bridge both ways very quickly any day of the week and there has been plenty of parking. Not sure if it's due to the beach renewal or not, but it isn't bad at all.

Which is the reason I said "can." I'm aware of all of the factors involved. But the truth is it isn't even real season until after the first of January and even so, it "can be a bear" as I said. She asked, I answered.

Some great recommendations in this post. Gladiolus and Winkler Rd in South Ft. Myers is a really NICE area for seasonal renting. Close access to the beach, well maintained associations, and plenty of shopping without having to head to 41 (traffic) Check out Summerlin Woods (located right across the street, within walking distance to the back entrance of Lakes Park) The association is a little older, but is very well maintained with a huge pool and it is gated. The units are around 1200 sq. feet. Upstairs units are much more roomy with vaulted ceilings. My in laws owned one there for many years. Other places that seem nice (as I rode my bike around there one day) are Colony Lakes, Avalon, Parker Woods. Though I must say the last 3 mentioned would be pricier rent than Summerlin Woods.

As a 2nd home owner down there, I must say, that you have to find a "seasonal" almost a year out. All the good ones go fast. I rent mine for winter season and it is always rented out 1 year out from stay. I will probably have my 2013 lease signed any day now.
