Histroy
Mina Mina Edison was known far and wide for the many kindnesses she bestowed upon guests who frequented her home in Fort Myers. Though winter visitors came from all over to confer with Mr. Edison, they often stayed to enjoy the beauty and warmth of Southwest Florida and Mina's famous punch. Our vision of a perfect Florida beach house is one of a pleasant and genteel establishment where the Edison's dedication to hospitality can still be experienced today.
The beach houses' architectural and interior designs are reminiscent of an old Florida style home. Only 24 suites comprise the elegantly appointed guest quarters, greatly limiting the number of visitors to be served at one time. Suites are offered in seven spacious floor plans, arranged to comfortably accommodate honeymooners and couples to an entire family, grace all four levels to provide you with a memorable vacation experience. Each smoke-free suite* boasts a fully equipped General Electric kitchen,  laundry facilities and an airy lanai from which stunning gulf front vistas and island breezes are meant to be savored. Bags
Beach Chair Located on the westerly shore of Estero Island (Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel's sister island), the newly constructed all suite hotel, Edison Beach House, fronts the magnificent Gulf of Mexico in such a way as to capture the very essence of a leisurely, tropical sunset. Just a short jaunt down the beach lies the Times Square area comprised of intimate eateries, casual boutiques, the hippest of surf shops and a popular fishing pier (no fishing license required) which stretches into the gentle waters of the gulf.  This is a favorite gathering area for families as well as teenagers looking to meet new friends.
In 1910, Mr. Edison built, at a cost of $900, one of Fort Myers' first outdoor swimming pools which can still be viewed today at the Edison-Ford estate. Though the desire to enjoy a relaxing dip hasn't changed much during the last century, pools (and their construction costs) certainly have - and we've built a fine one with a sundeck to match! Guests will be able to take a refreshing swim in our heated Gulf front freshwater pool and catch some world famous rays pool side or on our pristine beach where you can watch the dolphins that frequently come near shore. They'll be encouraged to just kick back and relax in the tranquility of our shaded retreat to grab a late afternoon nap or enjoy a moment of quiet introspection. A convenient courtyard grill - ideal for the vacationing gourmet - is another facility that can be found tucked within the beautifully landscaped grounds.
Family at the beach When its time to call it a day or night - guests can catch a major sporting event or premium movie, with our compliments, in the comfort of their private suite or plug in their computer and catch up with the office staff if they're so inclined.  Each suite has been designed to provide a comfortable home-like atmosphere for relaxing or working, if necessary.  Moonlit lanais offer a relaxing alternative for enjoying the end of the day.  Even while vacationing, many may find themselves in need of work related equipment such as a copier, fax or small desk-top supplies which we're pleased to provide. The professional, highly attentive Edison Beach House staff will always strive to anticipate guests' needs, however if we are remiss they have only to ask.  Daily maid services and bedding changes are an added service we provide and rest assured all blankets and white bedspreads are laundered for each new arrival.

While nothing quite compares with walking a sandy beach in the early morning hours or marveling at the power and beauty of this great body of water at sundown, other activities do abound locally as well. Deep sea fishing trips, gambling and dining cruises and golf are all available as are facilities that engage in the rental of numerous types of water craft.

We hope those who choose to stay at newest all-suite hotel on Fort Myers Beach, The Edison Beach House, will instantly recognize our unique approach to hospitality reaches back to a more gracious time.
