COVID-19 Update 3
March 23, 2020

As we continue to navigate the fluid situation of COVID-19 our Vacation Rentals in Paradise team is doing all we can to take care of our guests.  Even with Fort Myers Beach temporarily closed we would like you to know that Bay to Beach Resort and our other rental properties are OPEN.  The pool and rooftop at Bay to Beach Resort are open.

We have modified our cancellation policies to provide flexibility for all reservations scheduled to arrive prior to April 30, 2020 to ease our guest’s travel worries.  Reservations scheduled to arrive prior to April 30, 2020 may be changed to a later date in 2020 at no cost up to 24 hours before arrival.   If you need to adjust your reservation please contact us at

Our team is staying up to date with the latest information provided by government officials- federal, state and local.  We kindly ask those guests who are ill to comply with the CDC’s recommendation and not travel at this time.  

As you may imagine, our team has been extremely busy handling the influx of calls, emails and changes added to their workload.  At this time the best form of communication is email-  

We are here for you!

First, let us say that we are so thankful for the well wishes those of you have sent our way and the kindness you have extended to us. We really do have the best guests!  

This is to update you with the Declaration of Emergency Regulation that the Town of Fort Myers Beach released yesterday closing ALL beach access, both public and private.  This would mean that guests would not be able to use the beach in front of Bay to Beach Resort.
No persons or activities are permitted on the beach or the beachfront, which means parking, walking, swimming, fishing, etc. are banned.  People found in violation can face a fine of up to $5,000.

We understand you come to the beach for the beach!  We can work with you on making changes to your reservation.  If you think that being on your balcony, riding bicycles, watching sunsets from our rooftop and being in 80* weather is beneficial to you, you don’t need to do anything.  You still have a reservation.

Changes are occurring day to day for us all, we are navigating through this fluid situation and will update you accordingly.  Keep well and we hope to see you again soon.

Thank you for being the most wonderful guests to work with!

COVID-19 Update 1

March 18, 2020

Wow! What a week, we have no words.  As much as we, individuals would like to have everything in our lives under control, this is a reminder that so much is out of our hands.

We are diligently working to navigate through COVID-19, as information changes daily we are planning for the health and safety of our guests and staff.  At this time our plan involves modified office hours, Monday - Friday 9 am - 12 Noon, Saturday 9 am - 4 pm, our dream team will be working from home too.  Email is the best form of communication at this time-  

Our plan also involves continuing in providing our guests the best vacation accommodations. Fort Myers Beach is open, restaurants are open, the SUN is still on and Bay to Beach Resort is OPEN!  

We do understand that some of our families choose not to travel during this uncertain time and have modified our Cancellation Policy for all reservations scheduled to check-in now through April 30th.  This new policy is that a cancellation of a reservation booked to check-in now through April 30, 2020 will be issued a credit. Credits will be determined by taking deposits/monies paid towards the reservation less a $75 change fee.  Credits must be used towards a reservation with a check-in date during the 2020 calendar year.

Should our plans change we will notify our guests accordingly.  

Stay healthy!
