"The unit was nice, had a great view of the ocean and was as described in the listing. Kitchen was well stocked, including a washer/dryer, overall satisfactory. Did not take advantage of the beach chairs, umbrella, etc but nice that they were available. Living room had clean and comfortable sofa/loveseat and large flatscreen TV with cable and WIFI. Master bedroom had a comfortable King bed with memory foam topper (did not use the second bedroom, but it contained 2 twin beds and had a window that faced the street, unlike the Master which has patio doors opening onto the balcony). The building is very quiet, all units face the ocean, all have screened balconies, plenty of parking. Pool was nice, community room had book exchange shelves (good place to borrow a book or leave yours behind). There was also a rec room with a ping pong table. The beach is extremely wide at this southern tip of the island, check it out using google aerial view. Due to this along with the calmer waters of the Gulf of Mexico, you will not hear waves crashing on the sand as you will along the Atlantic or Pacific coasts. This was a slow week on the island (week before Christmas week), not many tourists and the snowbirds had not yet arrived. Driving to the tourist spots on the north end was uncongested (unlike high season). Found the island library where we could print off our boarding passes for the flight home (only 10 cents per sheet). The Publix grocery store is only 3 miles north or you will pass a couple others along Bonita Beach Drive on your way from the airport (be sure to use the southern approach instructions provided by the property manager). Preferred this south end of the island due to much quieter than the north end easier access to the airport, close proximity to Lovers Key state park (you can walk there from the condo, only half mile, $2 per person entrance fee). Easy drive a few miles south to Hickory Island where there are 10 beach access points with free parking. Although you may be able to spend a week on this island without a car (take a cab to/from airport and use the trolley or bikes on the island), I found a rental car on Hotwire that cost less than the cab would have (about $60 each way), so it's worth checking into. The property manager was very accessible and answered my emails immediately. Security deposit was refunded very quickly. Would recommend this rental to anyone for a safe and peaceful vacation with beautiful views and quiet location"

"My family and I stayed at Riptide Condo for 3nights and really enjoyed it. The location to the beach is perfect. Easy beach access as well as being able to walk to the shops and restaurants. The unit is well equipped and very clean. Sandy was a pleasure to work with. The manager Tom was very helpful. Riptide is a hidden gem with a small family atmosphere. I would definitely recommend it to others."

"I can't thank Bill and Brenda enough for making our stay a most enjoyable. The condo is in an excellent location on the southern end of Ft Myers Beach. It has all the comforts of home and everything you need from a well stocked kitchen, to all the towels and linens. The beds were very comfortable and the view from the patio was spectacular. It was extremely quiet and very convenient to both Ft Myers and Naples. Bill was quick to respond to all my inquiries and I look forward to our next trip."

"Not only are the beautiful white sandy beaches breathtaking but so is the condo!! We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay- we don't want to leave!!
