The space
Grace River Island Resort is a QUIET, tropical island on the Caloosahatchee River accessible via a land bridge, giving the appearance of a peninsula. It is a perfect location for family vacations, honeymoons, or just a weekend away. When you stay at the island, you will have a large 6 bedroom 6 bath house with beds for 20 people, a clubhouse, swimming pool, hot tub, and two private Gazebos. We feature a dock for large and small boats in a protected bay directly on the Intracoastal Waterway (Maine to Texas). It is the perfect place to RELAX, REFRESH, and RECONNECT. Quiet hours are 10pm-8am and low sound volume during the day.

As you enter the gate to the property, the driveway lined with traveler and queen palms stretches ahead of you. As you continue up the drive, you will occasionally glimpse the river and more tropical flora, and soon you will see the 4700 square foot island house which has a 2000 square foot deck, a nice kitchen, a large living room, and a family room, and five bedrooms. The house has a sunken dining room with a large single dining table where the whole group can enjoy meals together. An air-conditioned sunroom overlooks both the river and the pool, making a great place to fellowship or play games. We have one 3-person and two 1-person kayaks so you can explore the river and many bird species. We have 4 fishing poles available and a bait shop close by. There are many salt water fish species that call our river home. You may even see dolphin, manatees, shark, and tarpon.

It is a delight to share our beautiful, quiet Island with you.

Guest access
Guests have access to the full island including the house, pool, hot tub, clubhouse, and all the outdoor areas.

Other things to note
Our island has other properties within 100-200 yards around it. Sound carries over the water so music must be kept at a minimum level during the day and STRICT QUIET HOURS are 10 pm to 8:00 am each night. This noise policy is strictly enforced and includes music, yelling, & raucous behavior.

We have many close neighbors across the bay and river who can hear easilynoise across the water. Our neighbors enjoy the quiet solitude of the river and enjoy their nights of quiet sleep.
Sweetwater Marina is 5 minutes from the island where you can rent a pontoon boat (based on availability) or dine at Boat House 31 which is a great outdoor restaurant right on the River. Downtown Fort Myers can be reached by a 20-minute boat ride (longer with the the Nov-Apr Manatee zones) or a 15-minute car ride. There you will find shops, multiple restaurants, and other nightlife.

Mike and Karen have a vision to serve others and create a place for family and friends to relax, refresh, and reconnect. Mike and Karen have hosted on AirBnB for several years. They had a three story home on 2 ½ acres where they raised their three children. When their last child moved out, they had a big house with empty rooms. Mike’s brother recommended they do AirBnB. They were a little skeptical, but moved forward with trying it out. Immediately a friend had an emergency and needed a place for their family to stay and became their first customers. The first year was a time of learning and growing. By the second season they were fully booked and decided to add a kitchen and make a 2nd AirBNB space. Deciding it was time to downsize, the wonderful property was sold. Mike and Karen then moved to a place on a canal, just off the Caloosahatchee River. Mike won a boat in a drawing and they began exploring the area by boat. On one of their ventures they found this wonderful, tropical island and knew it could be shared with others, just as they had shared their other home. As their three children were growing up they vacationed with Mike’s extended family every year at a lake resort in Minnesota. They were able to connect with each other during the vacation week having fun playing games, fishing, shopping, water skiing, and enjoying meals together. The families didn’t live close together and the week at the lake allowed them to have the bond of fellowship each year. At Grace River Island Resort, Mike and Karen welcome you to their vacation home where you can gather together to relax, refresh, and reconnect finding the same bond of fellowship they in found with their families during their vacations.
