Wir verbrachten 3 Tage unsrer Rundreise in diesem wirklich schönen ruhigem Haus mit wundervoller Aussicht in eine kleine Bucht. Großzügige Zimmer mit Küche und Bad, einer Terasse mit Pool und Sonnenliegen. Sehr schön angelegt. Das continentale Frühstück wird auf den Terassen oder im Frühstücksraum eingenommen und ist in jedem Fall steigerungsfähig.

Lovely hotel. Warmly recommended.

We stayed at the Manatee Bay Inn in Fort Meyer's Beach. It was so wonderful. It is near the beach, shops and restaurants. You do not need your car at all. It is on a lagoon, has a tiki hut, dining area, breakfast, 2 pools, lots of palm trees and flowers. We did not want to leave.

a peaceful inn

About the innkeepers

While on honeymoon vacation in 1990 Axel and Connie fell in love with Ft. Myers Beach. They kept coming back to Florida every year for some vacation time from their busy Travel Business in Germany. In 1993 they decided to move for good from Frankfurt/Germany to Fort Myers Beach/Florida and runt the "Island Motel" successfully from 1993 to 2002. In 2003 they opened up the first " B & B" on Fort Myers Beach an named it “Manatee Bay Inn”.
