"We left Chicago In January minutes before a blizzard hit and landed in Fort Myers with the best weather in the country. We arrived at the Beachfront Tortuga and discovered Paradise in Old Florida. The view took our breath away. This romantic location has everything: sparkling waves, walks along sugar sand beaches, gorgeous sunsets; all in the front yard.
The galley kitchen is large and fully equipped with everything useful. There is ample dining seating for eight with additional seating on the deck. Beds are comfortable with flat screen televisions in every room. The master bedroom is beachside with a panoramic view of the water. Street side there is much off street parking and the noise from Estero Blvd. is minimal. Restaurants, stores and nightlife are very close. The two inside baths are recently renovated. There is an outside bath with shower in the laundry area which is very helpful.
The front yard is nicely secluded, extremely quiet, peaceful and presents beautiful views of the Gulf of Mexico and its sunsets. The yard extends to the beach, has natural Florida landscaping and a brick bordered fire pit for those rare cool evenings.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning to paradise."

"We just today got back from a week here. Excellent. Amazing views, right on the beach, which we loved. Sunsets every night were spectacular. This rental is very spacious. We had another couple join us for a few days and there was plenty of room for everyone. Everything as far as dishes, pans, gadgets for the kitchen were included. So many rentals have what look like garage sale rejects in the kitchen, not here. The was even a wet stone to sharpen any dull knives. There were enough towels, beach towels, blankets, sheets, pillows and so on for an army. We didn't want to leave. Highly recommend. Ann, the agent is very easy to work with and helpful. Rent this place you won't be sorry. There's even an elevator!"

"We rented this condo for two months and we truly lucked out. While it looked great online and had many very positive reviews, we were not looking forward to being on the 10th floor. Boy, were we wrong! Not only was the view spectacular, but the condo is so well equipped that we felt like we were at home. This is not your typical rental condo. The owners have furnished it with top of the line furniture that is extremely comfortable. AND there are two elevators that were quick and efficient. We were whisked up and down in no time plus it has a view of the back bay during the ride! Being on the top floor end unit, we had virtually no noise from the neighbors. Because we were on the top floor we could watch sunrise from the bay side and sunset over the gulf from the lanai side. Amazing!
The Tempurpedic mattress was a wonderful experience. We are thinking of replacing our home mattress with one. The chairs in the living room are great for curling up and reading a book and the bar chairs are the most comfortable we have ever sat on. The renovated master bathroom is absolutely beautiful as well as very functional and the kitchen with several sets of dishes for serving is so well equipped, it was a pleasure to cook dinner.
We found the owners so very helpful from emailing pictures in advance for getting acquainted with the amenities, to a thorough explanation of the large high definition television, to restaurant suggestions. There are two beach chairs, at least five (maybe more) large high quality beach towels, a high end beach umbrella and 3 coolers for our use.
We found the other condo residents to be welcoming and friendly. There are activities that allowed us to meet the others. There was a Mardi-Gras party, St. Patrick’s Day party, karaoke and bingo that provided some fun evenings, all this plus sunny afternoons by the heated pool or hot tub.
The grounds are beautiful and very well maintained. There is a lovely boardwalk along the bay with benches to sit and watch the boats, kayakers, birds, manatees, and dolphins. While the condo is situated on the bay, it is only a short walk to the private entrance to the beach which provides endless hours of swimming, sunning, walking and shelling. Around the corner adjacent to the public marina is Santini Plaza with several restaurants and a variety of shops including a post office. All in all, we can’t wait to go back next year."
