Recent Fort Myers Beach reviews

  • November Trip

    "We arrived in Fort Myers Beach on Saturday Nov 1 and stayed until Saturday Nov 8. The weather was beautiful (it never rained) and we walked the beach 3 to 4 times every day. It was so peaceful. The condo was clean and quiet, and the 3rd floor screened balcony overlooks the Gulf Of Mexico by mere yards. We saw many dolphin and we parasailed. I have been returning here for over 10 years, and we have never had a disappointing time. I so look forward to our next trip. Thank you for such a great vacation!!!!!!!"

  • Last minute getaway

    "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"

  • Wonderful getaway!

    "My family of 5, husband & I, 3 adult children and one's girlfriend & one's boyfriend stayed the week of New Year's and it was truly a wonderful getaway! The owner, Karen, was personable, great to work with and her home was exactly as you see on the website, and then some! The pool and tiki bar made us feel like we were at a resort. The privacy it offered was perfect. The house was big enough for 7 adults to enjoy time together and quiet time. The beds were SO comfortable. The house had everything we needed and very clean. I loved the beach themed decorations throughout the house. The beautiful beach is only a few minutes walk away. The neighborhood is nice & quiet. There's a trolley stop at the end of the street that we waited at on New Year's Eve to go to Times Square. We rented a pontoon boat one day that was sunny with a beautiful blue sky and everyone had a great time being on the water. We had lunch one day at the restaurant, Junkanoo and with the floor to ceiling open windows we enjoyed a great view of the beach. This house was perfect in every way & so conducive to getting lots of R&R. Everyone said they'd love to come back and all of us will look forward to being here again!"

  • Great Place, Great View

    "The condo was very nice and clean. The kitchen looked pretty new and had a dishwasher, which made it easy to clean up as we were heading out. The view and location were great; you can walk down two flights of stairs and be on the beach. It's also only a 10 minute walk to pier and restaurants, which we took full advantage of! Overall, the experience was great. The only minimal room for improvement is maybe a slight upgrade to the bathroom, but hey, we weren't there to see bathrooms! I would definitely stay here again."

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.

Fort Myers Beach Attractions

There's a lot to do on the tiny island of Estero including water sports, beach activities and outdoor and indoor attractions. There are 25 public beach accesses on the Gulf side of Estero Island that are marked for easy spotting.

You can stop by one of several playgrounds and parks in Fort Myers Beach. Head to Lynn Hall Memorial Park, where you can fish off of a 600-foot pier. Sports lovers can venture over to Bay Oaks Recreation Center for basketball, tennis and volleyball courts.

There are 17 acres of fun on the northern tip of Estero Island at Bowditch Point Regional Park. For more protected wildlife areas, check out the Matanzas Pass Wildlife Preserve with a restored cottage, 42 acres of wilderness and a sanctuary for native plants and animals. Seven acres are developed for a park and the rest remains part of a preservation. There are boardwalks that allow visitors to Estero Back Bay access to observe ospreys and pelicans as they fish for food. Kayaks and canoes are available at Oyster Bay and Lovers Key Barrier Island.
