Hurricane Ian cost estimates could top $100 billion making it the third most costly US hurricane. Click here for details.
Fort Myers Beach is changing every day. Cleanup is underway, businesses are reopening, and residents are rebuilding. It's amazing at how much has been done in such a short period of time. This page is devoted to the Ian recovery project. It is updated daily, so please bookmark and check back often.
It's going to be a long time before the shopping & dining experience we enjoyed pre-Ian will be back. And when it's back it will certainly be different. In the meantime, we now have enough businesses open that you can stay, eat, and play on the island. There are also many options just off-island and more and more options opening weekly. Click here to see our partial list (as I'm sure we've overlooked some). If you know someone who's open and not listed, please let us know through our Contact Us link.
Fewer bars & restaurants means fewer places playing live music, but you'll have more than one option every day on the island. You'll find music almost every day at La Ola Cabana's, most days at The Beach Bar and Wahoo Willie's. Keep an eye out for the return of Junkanoo. Bookmark this page and check back often as we'll be getting a schedule of who's playing where very soon.
It's kind of long, but this YouTube video will give you an independent sense of what's going on at the beach. The destruction and devastation are real, but don’t tell that to people on the beach. If you choose to come, despite the damage, know how much the Town, the residents, and the businesses appreciate your support and patronage. P.s., this was shot less than 3 weeks ago, and it's already outdated. Progress is being made every day.
We're just returned from beautiful, sunny, and warm Southwest Florida to the grey & gloomy skies of Central Indiana and, oh by the way, from 87 degrees to zero. We've updated our webite, Facebook page, and Vrbo listing with current pictures.
High level, we're up-and-running except for the interior finish of the lowest level (i.e., that below base flood elevation that was destroyed by Ian's 13-foot storm surge). Our outdoor space looks better than ever, the pool is warm and relaxing, and the living areas (the 2nd & 3rd levels) were untouched.
Continued meetings with contractors are underway. We're updating our rebuild progress frequently on our Facebook page.
If you are a Florida licensed contractor and would like to be considered for all or part of our rebuild, please reach out to Brad Wethington at email@example.com.
