Property description

Enjoy our Fort Myers Beach 'island' home directly on the Gulf of Mexico. Marvel at the view from the private screened lanai -- watching the frolicking dolphins by day and breath-taking sunsets at night. Walk the white sandy beach from this mid-island location or relax in the heated pool.

Our third floor condo is located at Smugglers Cove, approximately 3 miles from Times Square.

You deserve the 'Best On The Beach!'

Michigan Girls Comments about Coles Cay: April 5, 2008

C-ouldn’t wait to catch the rays of sunshine after all the cold so
O-ver the Mason-Dixon Line we did go
L-eaving behind the waist deep snow
E-ach year our love for this ocean front condo does grow
S-trawberry daiquiris on the lanai did flow

C-atching the dolphins frolicking in the early morning’s glow
A-ll enjoyed the pontoon ride, we had soaking rain though
Y-earning already to return to Smuggler’s Cove, here’s hoping the year does not go too slow!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I am a native of New York and have enjoyed many years vacationing at Smugglers Cove.

Why the Owner Chose Smuggler's Cove:
My wife and I have vacationed at Fort Myers Beach for 17 years and keep going back as often as we can. We now enjoy taking our grandchildren along as well. They absolutely love the ocean! We knew then that it was time to invest in an oceanside condo. We are confident you will feel at home, and enjoy it as much as we have.
