Description

Please don’t tell the animals the code to the automatic gate!

Park on concrete driveway or grassy area under oak trees behind the pool.

Sorry, but we can't accommodate huge Class A rigs or apartment-size fifth wheels. The turn into our driveway is too tight.

Please have your own food-safe water hose. Be sure to connect to a water faucet on the house wall, not one of the irrigation faucets or hoses.

Bring your own 30-amp to 15-amp adapter for electricity. There are several outlets you can plug into using our extension cord.

We do not have a sewer hookup, but there is a state park about 1.5 miles away that will allow you to dump for a small fee.

We are gradually making our 1.5 acre place into a micro farm. We have small veggie garden, bee hives, meat rabbits, hens, ducks, a cat, and over-friendly dogs, so beware!

If the dogs (Sophie and Beowolf) jump up, simply raise your knee and they will get the message. They will lick you if you get close!

House Rules

Please respect the quiet of the neighborhood. Be friendly!

Access Road Conditions

Paved, 12-foot wide gate at street.

Nice & Easy!

What a cool little farm! We only stayed one night and didn't spend a lot of time, but it was a nice, quiet, level spot plus the host great to chat with! Thanks again!

Amazing and friendly host

We came in later in the afternoon and the host were there to help us to find a nice place to set up. They took right to our boy's and didn't mind sharing the rabbit food with our 2 year old . Would certainly stop by if ever in the area.

What an amazing place!

We were taken in on short notice and invited to stay for an additional two nights which we happily did. What a treat to watch the chickens and ducks and get lots of love from the two charming dogs here. Our host keeps bees, too - a lovely couple. Thanks so much.

Great quiet place to stay.

Tim is a super friendly host who went out of his way to be sure we had everything we needed. He even brought us fresh eggs for breakfast.

Fun place!

Estero Micro Farm was lovely with lots of activity...watching the chickens and ducks (and playing with the dogs) was so entertaining! Parking was level, safe, and secure, and our hosts are just about the most outgoing and generous folks you will ever meet. We left with a positive experience...and some fresh eggs!

A farm in the city

Plan to arrive early so you can enjoy the dogs, ducks, chickens, and bee’s in the hives.
A wonderful overnight ( or two).

Great hosts!

Fantastic few days!

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 days staying at the microfarm. Our host was more than welcoming—we learned about bee keeping, enjoyed the ducks and chickens, played with the dogs—all in a location that made getting to the beach or to shopping a breeze. We went to the dog beach—a first for our dog—so fun! If you’re going to the Fort Myers area, this is where to boondock! See you next year, Estero Microfarm!!

Love love love this fun place

Who would have thunk ducks could make me laugh so hard. They sure do love their dad Tim. A girlfriend and I hooked up with our vans for an overnight and loved our tour when Tim arrived home. We enjoyed wine and laughs. It was a perfect night.... to rendezvous and we took a walk at Koreshan State Park and emptied tanks the next morn. Thanx again for taking both our vans in for the night!

Easy stop over

We stayed at the Micro farm one night on route to St Pete. Although the owners were not home when we arrived we had no problems getting in and finding the level spot to park and were greeted warmly by their two dogs who became fast friends with ours. Their home is conveniently located not far from the highway. Light sleepers may be bothered by road noise and perhaps roosters but otherwise a perfectly comfortble and easy stay. Thanks!

Great people, great hospitality!

Thanks so much to Tim and family for such great hospitality during our stay in the Naples area. Great small family farm and parking area. Though it's a farm, it's right off the main road which is just off 95, so also very convenient.

Thanks so much!

Little farm in town

Parking on the lawn amid ducks and chickens, (not a problem, just entertaining). Very friendly hosts and a great location just off I 75.

Micro Farm Stay

Great communications from host prior to our visit and very gracious hosts- Nice spot on level driveway pavement was appreciated as it rained most of the time we were there. Host provided electric and water- and we were even given some freshly collected egss from the chickens which made a wonderful meal! Would definately recommend this host.

Great hosts

This is a great spot. They have chickens, and ducks, and rabbits, a cat, and a playful dog. We went on a beehive rescue, and the beach is just a few minutes away. Great hosts, very gracious and giving. Lots of fun.

Our Florida Family

We not only made friends but family for life. Our time with Tim, Rhonda, Sophie, the chickens, the ducks, The rabbits and the bees was the best experience we have had since travelling. We were welcomed from day one had the best time learning from our new family and having lots of laughs.
This was by far the hardest place we have had to leave and would come back in a heartbeat. Thank you so much for the un-bee-lievable experience, you are the ultimate hosts and we are truly lucky that we met you!

A Wonderful Experince.

From the minute we were greeted in the driveway, we felt "at home". Rhonda and Tim made us feel like family and we really enjoyed their company. Their mini farm, tucked in the middle of the city was such a comfortable place to spend time. To us the farm atmosphere was an added bonus. They were both very informative about so many subjects and were a pleasure to talk with. We were definitely sad to leave. Thanks so much for hosting us.

Welcoming hosts

Our stay at Estero Micro farm could not have been nicer. It was fun to watch the ducks and chickens wander the property. Our hosts were friendly and welcoming. They were able to accommodate us for an extra night even though they had someone else coming in.

Great experience - great hosts!

I cannot say enough about the hospitality we received at the Estero Micro farm. We met other Boondockers there and had such a memorable evening. The hosts were gracious and great people. We look forward to coming back in the future. A perfect experience!
