Riptide condo description

GUEST COMMENT: We just got home from Riptide after a 5 day stay & absolutely LOVE IT!!! It was within walking distance to restaurants, bars, beaches, souvenir/T-shirt shops, & Times Square. We had a very relaxing vacation & are already planning to make this a yearly trip. Riptide is very clean & has everything you could want. Very refreshing tropical environment. Tom, the property manager, is very nice & willing to help anyway he can. Amy, the owner of the condo we stayed in, was great to work with as well. Overall, I would recommend Riptide to anyone needing some R&R. Just far enough from all the activities to be quiet & relaxing but also just close enough to walk where ever your heart desires. Thanks Amy & Tom for the great vacation! We will be back :)

Riptide is a small, quiet complex located across the street from the beach on the northern end of Fort Myers Beach. This is a quiet section of the island and is walking distance to Times Square... ice cream, restaurants, shopping.

The unit has a queen bed and a convertible queen-size sofa bed. It can accommodate a family with children or two couples.

Riptide has just thirteen units, parking is ground level with living quarters above. Northern-end location makes for easy access on/off island- you don't have to deal with beach traffic. Many amenities within walking distance of condo.

Recently remodeled... new kitchen, windows, doors, AC, shutters, ceiling fan... all new & beautiful!
