First Ever Island Hopper Songwriters Fest!

August 25th, 2014

Island Hopper Songwriter Fest

Get ready for some good music because famous songwriters are about ready to descend on Fort Myers Beach and Captiva Island.

The inaugural Island Hopper Songwriter Fest will be taking place over two consecutive weekends, on Sept. 26-28 on Captiva Island, and Oct. 3-5 on Fort Myers Beach.

The Lee County Visitor and Convention Bureau’s first Songwriter Fest features several free performances by nationally acclaimed singer-songwriters. This is the perfect chance to hear the music and the stories behind the music.

Ever wonder who wrote the most played song in 2004 – Sara Evans’ “Suds In The Bucket?” It was written by Billy Montana who is coming to Captiva. What about Blake Shelton’s “Doin’ What She Likes?” That’s Phil O’Donnell, who you can check out on Fort Myers Beach. And do you ever wonder who penned many of George Strait’s greatest hits? That’s Dean Dillon, who had 54 of his songs recorded by the country legend. Dean will be singing and sharing stories on Captiva.

Festival-goers will have easy access to performances through complimentary trolley transportation to and from most venues, including local favorites the Crow’s Nest, Key Lime Bistro and Mucky Duck on Captiva as well as Nervous Nellie’s, Smokin’ Oyster Brewery and The Beached Whale on Fort Myers Beach.

An all-star lineup will perform during the festival including Dillon, whose career boasts 26 songs that exceed one million performances and a combined total of 31 BMI Country and Pop awards. Additional performers include Grammy-nominated songwriter Tim James, who penned the number one single “My List” by Toby Keith; Wynn Varble, whose lyrics have been nominated for Song of the Year by the Country Music Association and the Academy of Country Music; as well as renowned singer-songwriters Phil O’Donnell, Kevn Kinney, Dylan Altman, Marshall Altman, Jeff Cohen, Kristen Kelly, Ruth Collins, Danny Myrick with Megan Linville, George Ducas, Billy Montana, Frank Myers and Loving Mary.

If you’re interested in attending the festival, you can find more information about the schedules, venues, and times at islandhopperfest.com.

How To Find The Best Seashells on Fort Myers Beach

June 17th, 2014

Fort Myers Beach Seashells

We all know southwest Florida is a beautiful destination, but the treasures found on the area’s beaches make it a truly special place. Southwest Florida is home to some of the best shelling in the world. The beaches of Naples, Bonita Springs, Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel Island are covered with seashells of all shapes, sizes, and colors. It’s a shelling paradise! These treasures are just waiting for you to scoop them up.

Collecting seashells is one of our guest’s favorite activities. Guests can enjoy time on our beautiful white-sand beaches and will return home with fantastic souvenirs that they can give to family or use for decoration.

The SunStream Beach Team spent some time on south Fort Myers Beach with the internet’s top shelling expert, Pam Rambo of iLoveShelling.com. We brought her down from Sanibel Island to the beach located directly behind our sister properties to the south, Pointe Estero Beach Resort and GullWing Beach Resort, to educate our guests and followers on the tips and tricks of shelling. Watch as we learn how to find amazing seashells on Fort Myers Beach!

I wanted to be sure to let you know the excellent job that you and EVERYONE at DiamondHead did for our entire stay.

June 10th, 2014

Johnny,

I wanted to be sure to let you know the excellent job that you and EVERYONE at DiamondHead did for our entire stay. From the minute we arrived, the bell staff, front desk and everyone else we encountered was pleasant and extremely competent. What could have been an extremely stressful time, was for the most part, all about relaxation. Of course the facilities were top notch and the views amazing.

Enclosed is a small token of our appreciation for everyone there at DiamondHead. These are world famous jumbo jelly beans from The Wakarusa Dime Store. They are of course in Notre Dame colors. Could you please be sure that the folks in the Bell Service area receive some.

Once again, thanks and we look forward to staying there again.

Randy Cooper and family
