Recent Fort Myers Beach reviews

  • CONDO

    "We just arrived back home after renting this condo for February, 2015 and it was "lovely". It was so well furnished and everything that you possibly needed was at your fingertips. It also was in such a great location to walk to shops, restaurants and just a block to the beach. The view from the lanai was spectacular with all the boats coming and going from the marina. The pool was beautiful and the people we met there were extremely nice. The owners were very accommodating and helpful for us. We hope to possibly rent this unit again someday in the near future. Mike and Bev Freemark, Bloomington, MN"

  • Florida Paradise!

    "Just returned to chilly NJ after a wonderful week at the Sandbox house in Ft Myers Beach FL. Went with extended family with kids ages 9 - 12 and their grandparents. The house was just as described, right on the beach, with plenty of space and amazing views from all angles. The location was great, with a 5 min walk to Times Square with lots of restaurants and bars. Every evening we'd enjoy the spectacular sunsets from the deck or on the beach! Weather was perfect with mid 80 days and mid 60's at night. The owners were very accommodating with early check in and late check out due to our flight times. I can't wait to go back next year!"

  • Old Florida Paradise

    "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."

  • Quiet & convenient

    "Our 3 generation family spent Christmas & New Years weeks at this condo. It was a quiet area of the island. We spent most of the day at the large pool with a short walk to the beach to enjoy the sunsets at night. Everything was furnished that you could need from beach accessories, to strollers for the little ones. It is convenient to restaurants & shopping. Diane is very friendly & it was pleasure to rent from her."

Fort Myers Beach Travel Tips

More than 6,200 people call Fort Myers Beach home. This town located on Estero Island wasn't officially incorporated until December 1995, making it a newer Floridian hotspot. Although Fort Myers Beach may be small, more than 1.8 million visitors flock there every year to enjoy the beaches, fishing, shopping, dining, golf and entertainment along the Gulf.

There's no undertow in Fort Myers Beach, making it the "World's Safest Beach" and perfect for families who want to get their toes wet. The entire island is 7 miles long, a nice walk or jog for those who want to work in a little exercise on their trip.

The area that was once home to Native Americans and Spaniards is a favorite among tourists who dine on "pink gold" shrimp and celebrate the fishing industry with the week-long Shrimp Festival held in March.
