SHIFT Vacation Retreats

The Tropical Paradise Where Health Restoration, Weight Loss & Fun Meet!

WHAT is a SHIFT Vacation Retreat?

It’s an escape to tranquility with time away from food-related triggers and trials. Health restoration is a journey and whether just starting out or seeking to recharge, this immersion experience allows you to reacquaint yourself with the streamlined strategies and lifestyle habits that will make your personal health ‘dream’ a reality.
Each day is highlighted with a one hour SHIFT Strategy Session with Barb and/or Charlie, then the day is yours to enjoy!
Activities include beach or street bike riding, beach combing, nature walking, sight seeing or shopping, swimming, kayaking, or simply lounging on the white sand beach.
Dolphin and manatee will delight you from the private bayside dock. Both sunrise and sunset will dazzle your senses. Truly a nature drenched stay on Estero Bay.
Break through a weight loss stall, break through insulin resistance, break through emotionally driven weight loss impediments. And the end of your stay is just the beginning of your continued SHIFT as you leave refreshed and fortified to carry on at home. 

WHO is a SHIFT Retreat For?

About The Bayview Retreat House Accomodations...

Magnificent Bay Front Home with Stunning Views of Estero Bay

Includes 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, & Sleeps 6 (A 4th bedroom & 3rd. bath can be added for an additional fee.)

WARNING… This is one of the top locations on the island and only a brief walk to the white sand beach, movie theater, shopping, marina and restaurants… but you may never want to leave the peaceful, tranquility of the 100’ foot long bay front dock in your backyard.

Located at the southern end of Estero Island on Fort Myers Beach, your private backyard with unobstructed view of Estero Bay is considered one of the most densely populated havens for dolphin in the U.S. Not a day goes by without pods of dolphin swimming by. Sprinkle in manatees, osprey, eagles and native fish jumping out of the water, and you’ll have a front row seat at a never ending wildlife show!

If you prefer activity, the neighborhood and island are wonderful place for walking, biking, kayaking, and fishing. Bikes, kayaks and even fishing gear are ready for you to enjoy!

A short walk down the street leads to our private beach access path which takes you to the most beautiful section of beach on the island, with expansive white sand and signature blue cabanas and beach chairs available for rent. Enjoy the pleasure of walking in the balmy evenings to Charley’s Boathouse or the many restaurants of Santini Plaza for dinner and socializing.

Of course there’s always drinks at one of the tiki bars on the beach, or invite guests over to lounge on the dock and enjoy the evening breezes off the bay while taking in the beautiful view.

There’s even a 4-plex movie theater where you can watch first run films with a glass of wine and dinner. (The food is surprisingly good!)

SHIFT Retreat Sunrise

Watch the sunrise on the dock with a cup of SHIFT coffee in hand. Drink it all in.

Where Is Fort Myers Beach?

Located just 20 miles from Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) with direct flights from all over the U.S. and Canada, Fort Myers Beach is a popular destination for visitors eager to escape the busy routine of everyday life and relax in a tropical paradise.

Fort Myers Beach sits on a little barrier island, about seven miles long, and the beach is fabulous – wide, gradually sloping, and thick with the area’s justifiably famed sugar-sand. It is a short distance from many great areas such as Naples, Miami, Tampa, and popular nearby attractions include Disney World, The Edison Ford Museum, Lovers Key State Park, The Florida Everglades and so much more.
