Captains Bay South condo description
This two bedroom, two bath, beautifully decorated fourth level condominium is located on the quiet south end of Estero Island, also known as Fort Myers Beach. The wide screened lanai, which is accessible from the living room and the master bedroom, overlooks a mangrove preserve, the swimming pool, and has a great view of the magnificent sunsets on the Gulf.
Seven miles of pure white sand, on Florida's most beautiful and safest beach, is just steps away. All conveniences including shopping, restaurants, a four screen cinema, a medical center, a golf course, two marinas and churches are within a five-minute walk. The beach trolley is 200 feet from your door. Park the car and relax. Its all right here.
Rent a pontoon boat for a day and explore the back bay. Dolphins often accompany you for long stretchs, frequently coming close enough to touch. Continue on toward the bridge and have lunch at one of the many dockside eateries. Hop on the trolley and go south to the Lovers Key recreation area. Experience wonderful fishing for a great variety of fish that can be caught right off the beach. Explore Carl Johnson State Park where you can rent a kayak or walk the trails to see many birds and Florida wildlife in a protected, natural enviornment. Take a ride south to the Everglades for a thrilling airboat ride. Fish literally jump over the boat as you are skimming over the water. Or simply walk 50 feet from our building to the canal and look for Charley, our resident alligator. He frequently suns himself in full sight.
This spacious unit looks brand new and is fully equipped with everything you will need for a truly memorable vacation. The modern split-floor plan offers complete privacy with a bedroom and bath on each end. All rooms, including the lanai, are equipped with ceiling fans. The ground level, under building parking is within a few steps of the secured lobby and elevator.
We supply many books, videos, CD's, DVD's, puzzles and games for your enjoyment. The unit is also equipped with hi-speed broadband internet. We supply you with a key to our locker which contains anything you or your children may need for relaxation and fun at the beach including bocci ball and a cornhole game. Just bring your clothing and your toothbrush. There are no disappointments here. One trip and you will long to return.

Very nice place to stay.
Very nice place to stay.
A great place to stay, within walking distance of several good restaurants. The condo has everything you need for your stay, just bring your clothing and toothbrush. The beach is across the street , about a 3 or 4 minute walk. The beach is beautiful, wide and has great white sand. Two beachfront open air bars are within a short walk and quite often have entertainment. I've made arrangements to rent there again next year.

Owner response: Thank you for the great review. We are happy that you enjoyed the condo and look forward to seeing you next year.
I finally got round to doing a review. This place is amazing. I was on my own and had a great time. The condo is so nice. Lots of room, wifi, tv, DVDs and CDs. Everything you could wish for is there. The pool area is very nice and quiet surrounded by hibiscus. The beach is a 5 minute walk. Beach chairs, umbrella, floats, bucket and spades and a cart to take them to the beach. CVS next door, nice restaurant in Santini Plaza that does wonderful bar meals and dinner. Had lobster on Friday night, really good. Watched fireworks July 4 on the beach. Took the trolley to Publix and Times Square. The owner very nice and even offered to book another week for me as they had the rain there from a hurricane but I still went and the weather was lovely. Best place to stay.

We stayed again at this property for our 2nd time and we loved it. The condo is so well equipped and clean and pleasant with all the comforts one could want. The owners have added some new features since we were last here (like flat screen T.V's and internet connection). It is truly home away from home. The location is great, within a short walking distance to stores and several very good restaurants AND a gorgeous beach!! The beach is so beautiful--we loved the beach!! and we hope to return again. We would highly recommend this condo without any hesitation.

Owner response: Thank you so much for the great feedback. We loved having you and enjoyed meeting both of you and Anna. We look forward to seeing you again!
We have been fortunate to visit FMB every October for a number of years to celebrate life. This was our first time at Captains Bay South, as we were lucky enough to "host" our daughter for 4 days of our 2 week stay and needed the added space. The unit was very comfortable and well equipped. It truely provides a home like setting in all respects. Chuck and Judy were very prompt to respond when "life happens...even on vacation!" It was a pleasure dealing with them, and certainly a pleasure to share their home away from home. Thank you, and we would be happy to stay in your condo again, and refer to anyone seeking a relaxing stay in paradise. Linda and Leroy, Milwaukee, WI

We would definately recommend this condo to all of our friends/family and we cannot wait to return for more fun in the sun and visiting the great beaches of Ft. Myers.

Great Fort Myers beach location

The unit was excellently equipped and ready for our beach vacation with all the comforts of home and everything necessary to enjoy the sun and beach. We especially liked the beaches in Bonita to the south. This has been the best value we have had so far and so convenient to everything.

WOW What a great vacation. The condo had everything we needed or wanted. Very roomy and very clean. We were delighted with everything. Our son got married on the beach behind the Holiday Inn and we were right across the street for all the festivities. Sunsets were amazing. Thanks for adding to our memories. Ken and Carolyn

About the owner: We live in Ohio and escape to the beach twice a year. We enjoy sunning, shelling and relaxing watching the spectacular susets from our lanai.
Why the Owner Chose Captains Bay South:
We love Fort Myers Beach. It is wide, loaded with shells and sand dollars, pure white and beautiful. All amenities including restaurants, beach bars, shopping, a marina, golf, cinemas and churches are within walking distance. Once you arrive, you need not start your car until you depart. A trolley is within 300' that will take you anywhere you need to go that is beyond walking distance.
