Fort Myers Beach

Edison Beach House

Travelzoo Staff

Why We Love This Hotel

  • All-suite boutique hotel in former winter home of Thomas and Mina Edison
  • Each room faces the Gulf of Mexico and includes a balcony
  • Home to one of Fort Myers' first outdoor pools, added in 1910
  • Free Wi-Fi and parking


The four-story waterfront Edison Beach House feels more like a private home than a hotel – rightfully so since the property started life as the private mansion of Mina Edison, wife of Thomas, who loved to share her huge home with friends and family looking to trade Ohio winters for Floridian sunshine.

Nearly a century after the home was built, its guest rooms are now 24 carefully appointed suites with fully-equipped kitchens, balconies facing the Gulf of Mexico and plenty of living space. Some are large enough to accommodate seven adults and all include free Wi-Fi and parking.

The property’s heated Gulf front, freshwater pool, added in 1910, was one of first in Fort Myers. While there is not a restaurant on the property, guests can barbecue on the grills, prepare meals en suite or walk to waterfront dining. Fishing Pier Fort Myers Beach, Pink Shell Marina and Bowditch Point Perk are within a 15 minute walk of the hotel.
