Lovers Key condo description
Away from the crowds and noise is this spectacular, waterfront (on the beach) corner condominium allowing you unobstructed views of the Gulf, San Carlos Pass, Fort Myers Beach, Back Bays, and is on Lover's Key State Park Beach (#4 in the US with 3 miles of pristine white sand shelling beach and 700 acres of natural surroundings).
Experience the magnificence and tranquility of Black Island. Imagine lounging on your own private sunny balcony, listening to the waves lapping against the beach, watching the dolphins, manatees, birds, boaters, sunbathers, and fishermen below. You will love the romance of the ever-changing sunsets and lights from ships at sea, the draw-bridge and Fort Myers Beach at night. This unique corner unit offers total privacy within the unit AND balcony, allowing sunbathing, enjoyable and relaxing times without prying eyes. This unit is beautiful and has a new, fully-equipped kitchen, new furniture. luxurious Super-plush king-size bed, and many upgrades. All units are NOT the same on the beach or at Lover's Key! Check out my guest book link below and see why renters love this unit and return year after year. Why risk your vacation & the chance for a lifetime memorable experience in order to save a few dollars on inferior accommodations (check out my reviews)? You deserve this unique and memorable experience that you will never forget!
RELAX! This resort experience allows you to unwind, fall in love all over again, and enjoy your time without waiting in lines or feeling like you are in rushed traffic and crowds. Whether sunning on your private balcony checking your emails with the free WIFI (with table and chairs and recliner) or enjoying the 85-degree, Olympic-size pool (never full) and Jacuzzi overlooking the water, outdoor dining area with free gas grills, plus a private beach with chairs and umbrellas (always available) where you can relax in the sun, socialize, or play with water toys. You do not have to GO anywhere to truly relax - it is all right here. Yes, you can have your own boat or jet ski here, anchor it by the beach, and will be able to watch it from this unit.
Your beach front restaurant (Flippers) is available 500 feet from your door and many others are nearby. Should you want to mix with the 'Times Square' crowd or tourist beach crowd, you can drive or a quick 50-cent trolley will take you there quickly, stops everywhere, and saves parking fees in some of the busier areas during peak tourist periods. The trolley stops on the street in front of the complex to take you directly to Fort Myers or Bonita Springs cities, beaches, restaurants, and shopping.
All units are NOT EQUAL! This has the absolute best unobstructed views from Lover's Key, offers the best privacy, and was remodeled in 2008 with new furniture in 2012 and includes extensive artwork from Peter Max and others. This is a PRIVATELY OWNED & MAINTAINED UNIT that is offered to you as place for that 'Special Vacation.' The entire building has been totally upgraded and is 100% owner-managed with lots of friendly people. This building is NOT a hotel, but an extremely unique escape that will become your personal paradise, where you can make lifetime friends and you will want to return to year-after-year!
Note: There are coolers, fishing equipment, rafts, kites, games, and toys to keep everyone busy. Smoking is allowed only on the balcony with the door closed. NO pets, sorry. This unit has a floor-to-ceiling wood-folding curtain which allows separating the sleeping areas at night, for additional privacy, in case you have others using the queen-size hide-a-bed.
Thanks for looking. Call with any questions for fastest response. CREDIT CARDS ARE ACCEPTED THROUGH PAYPAL. Emails are responded to quickly unless the owner is traveling--Thanks for your interest.
Sample Comments from our Previous Guests
The view from your condo is absolutely AMAZING & UNFORGETTABLE!!!! Your ad on VRBO doesn't even do it justice. We had a wonderful time at your awesome condo. It was definitely worth the wait to take a late Honeymoon!!! Nothing beats waking up, having breakfast on the balcony, and watching the dolphins play in the morning. Thank you for letting us stay at your place! We are already starting to make plans to return.
John & Shannon, Chicago
We had the BEST vacation of our LIVES at your beautiful condo! TRULY AWESOME. The views spectacular. The whole place...and experience ...indescribable. Thank you so much for your hospitality.
Jon, we were absolutely thrilled to find that everything about your condo was exactly as it was portrayed in the ad. We had a very enjoyable stay, and definitely hope to return. Thank you for sharing your little slice of heaven with us, and for being such a wonderful host.
Lynne & Tom, Texas
We've just had a wonderful vacation in Jon's condo. The views are everything he described and more and we loved the decor and the very comfortable bed. We spent many happy hours walking along the beach or in Lovers Key State Park itself where you could hire bikes and kayaks. We enjoyed a round of golf and all the restaurants we visited were good... We can find nothing negative to say - and no we're not Jon's relatives!!! In fact we found the condo just by choosing it from several on VRBO.
Jenny & Roger Wilkins, England
While I am hesitant to share my comments on '602', I feel compelled to let you know what a piece of 'heaven' it truly is. Besides lacking nothing in the unit itself, for your viewing pleasure it comes equipped with gorgeous sunsets and dolphins at play. My only hope is that as word gets out about 'paradise' that there will be time available for us to return.

A Memorable and Marvelous Vacation!
A Memorable and Marvelous Vacation!
I recently returned from staying six nights in this rental and had a perfectly wonderful vacation! The unit was immaculately clean, and it was lovely in every way. It was beautifully decorated in a charming and cheerful tropical fish theme. Anything and everything that I needed to be comfortable -was there! The view from the windows and balcony was magnificent during the day and the night. During the daytime it was captivating to clearly see dolphins, manatees, and all kinds of birds. Seeing a variety of different boats and activity, also made it a very interesting view. During the nighttime, it was so quiet that I could hear what sounded like hundreds of frogs singing - from the State Park next store. The location of the Condominium is ideal for exploring the many delightful things to do in that region. It is also conveniently located near a variety of restaurants and stores. Jon the owner of the Unit, is especially welcoming and is a pleasure to deal with in every way! He immediately answered any questions that I had, and promptly sent me the keys, and returned my security deposit. I highly recommend this rental, for couples, small families, AND also for solo travelers - as I was. I felt completely safe, and everyone that I met was very friendly and pleasant. Do not be hesitant in any way to rent this unit if you are a couple, small family, or a solo traveler. You will have a memorable and marvelous vacation and not be disappointed!!!

We stayed here for 4 nights in June 2013 for our honeymoon, and everything was just perfect! As many other reviewers, we did not want to leave! All of the reviews below are correct: we saw several dolphins and were luckily enough to watch a manatee swim by (they stay longer underwater so they are less likely to be seen), we walked from the rental’s private and quiet beach onto the beach of Lover’s Key where we enjoyed watching more wildlife (crabs, starfish, snails, birds of all kinds, sting rays, armadillos, turtles), gorgeous sunsets and were able to find some beautiful shells to bring home to Germany with us. Even from the balcony, if you use the binoculars provided in the rental, you can watch the birds and dolphins more closely, and there are plenty! A true highlight was seeing eagles fly around close to the balcony straight from the bedroom window! You truly get to ‘get back to nature’ by staying here. This cozy rental has everything for kitchen/cooking needs, and the ceiling fans just add perfectly to the comfort! It was super clean and Jon was really nice and helpful throughout our stay. The hot tub and heated pool were just fabulous, especially right at sunset, and indeed, every time we used them, no one else was down there! Just like the beach! We felt like we were the only ones there! The location is perfect, with shopping, restaurants and beaches (Fort Myers and Sanibel) not too far away. We sure hope to visit again someday! One tip for future renters: if you bring a device (phone, camera) that has a re-chargeable battery and you can only plug in to charge using a USB outlet, definitely bring your laptop with you since there is no business center or computers in the lobby of the condo (not a hotel, like Jon states in his description), and there are no USB outlets in the rental. We will remember for next time! Also, definitely visit Lover’s Key State Park to hike, bike, kayak, canoe, etc. Extra tip, the rental charges are daily rates, so it get out there early in the day to make sure you maximize your rental time. And/or find a sunset or dolphin cruise to go out in Estero Bay, if you aren’t boating yourselves. Thanks again for everything, Jon!

I had the pleasure to stay in this condo for three nights, and did not want to leave. The beach is small but private, the balcony views are magnificent, I sat there for hours and watched dolphins, birds, fish jet skis and boaters. As a matter of fact, I paid for a dolphin tour at ft myers beach and they took us to see the dolphins right off our balcony! When the tide went out at night we saw many crabs, starfish and even a small octopus! The bed was very comfortable, the building quiet, I can't wait to return.

My boyfriend and I wanted a little getaway from the East Coast chaos and discovered this place on VRBO. The owner was very accommodating and helpful. The condo has great views with tons of boaters, jet skiers and dolphins to watch. The beaches nearby are uncrowded and very close to the condo. The condo has a full kitchen and the King size bed is VERY comfortable!! Everything you need for a romantic getaway for two!!!

Amazing Views and Perfect Location!
Amazing Views and Perfect Location!
This property is as descibed and more! The views of the ocean and the dolphins are amazing! What is unique is that it is away from the crowds and touristy activity yet close to get to if you want some action. Wonderful state park right next door! The trolley picks up just outside of the condo area and takes you everywhere you would want to go! My experience with Jon's attention to detail and follow was impressive. I hope to return again for another stay, it will not be soon enough! Usually I am ready to be home after a week away however, I was truley sad to leave and would have extended my stay if I could have!

Tom & I just got home from a beautiful week in your unit. It is absolutely breathtaking as one walks around the point in Lovers Key Park, as well as all the ocean life we were able to see. Even the manatee showed their huge bodies, as well as the dolphins, but my favorite has to be the eagles. We truly love the area & look forward to staying in your unit again if you will allow. Thanks again for a great vacation!

Hi Jon...Thank you for sharing your little piece of heaven with us. This is really the most lovely location..The view is unmatchable..Although we enjoyed our trips to Sanibel and visiting Ft Myers and Bonita Springs returning to OUR CONDO at 602 was what we enjoyed the most..I think Steve would have been happy to sit on the balcony all day long and watch the dolphin and manatee swim by..It was also fun to watch the fishing and we enjoyed the beach..The pool was wonderful especially with the new heating system..and of course the jacuzzi for these frozen old New England bones..Also I must add the bed was like sleeping on a cloud..It was a terrific vacation ..We have our pictures and memories to get us through next winter..We are looking forward to returning again...Thanks, Sandra and Steve Quincy, MA

We rented Lovers Key #602 a week in January, 2009 and LOVED it. The view is worth a million dollars. Sitting on the balcony eating breakfast and watching the dolphins swimming was spectacular!!! A PERFECT vacation spot. We will be returning.
