Southwest Florida - Where to go?

I'm looking to spend 4 days in southwest Florida the end of December - anywhere from Venice to Ft. Myers area. Would like to be on or close to the beach, prefer not to be in a high rise. Don't need luxury, a lot of action or nightlife and would prefer

And would prefer what exactly? Your pst was cut off.

If you want to be near/on the beach, and only want to go south to ft myers, you will be limited (in order from north to south) to Venice, Manasota key/englewood, Gasparilla island/boca grande then the river mouth and Pt charlotte, Punta gorda and cape coral - all with no beaches so are out,. South of the river, the beaches start again incl FMB, Sanibel and Captiva. FMB is fairly high rise in general so you may want to leave tht one off your short list. There are some island resorts that are boat access only inbetween, but not sure if that is what you are looking for?

You may want to browse private rentals for the areas suggested above on the vrbo website (vacation rentals by owners).

Manasota key may fit your criteria nicely.
