About Donna

My husband and I are original owners of the condo built in 2006. We live in a suburb of Chicago, Il and have been married for 44 years and have 2 children.

Donna purchased this condo in 2006

Why Donna chose Fort Myers Beach

When my husband and I first came to Ft. Myers Beach, we immediately felt like we were on a tropical island with nature all around us. The relaxing atmosphere, the stunning Gulf of Mexico with beautiful calm, warm water and spectacular sunsets were just what we were looking for. We also loved there was so many things to see and do. Also, everyone was so friendly. While watching a stunning sunset one evening, we met a couple that had family from out of town. We were complete strangers and they offered sharing their wine and snacks with us while engaging in lively conversation.

What makes this condo unique

Bella Lago on Fort Myers Beach is the perfect vacation destination for couples and families to create beautiful memories that will last forever. Sand, sun, surf, and world famous sunsets are steps away. The pool and grounds are gorgeous and have a wonderful tropical feel. We thought of everything when furnishing our vacation home to make sure your experience would be amazing. In the evening we enjoy sitting on the lanai watching the lighted fountain and just relaxing with a glass of wine.

We really enjoyed our stay at Bella Lago. The condo was beautiful and homey. Everything we needed was available including items for the beach. This was especially helpful since we didn't have to bring beach chairs, coolers and umbrellas! The condo was very clean and comfortable. Most importantly, Donna was superior! She called to make sure my reservation was complete, offered essential information about the surrounding area for shopping and restaurants and followed up with me to make sure I had everything I needed. It is rare that rent from someone that makes you feel welcome to be in their home.

Enjoyed the stay very much! If travel takes us to Fort Myers in the future, we will definitely be back!

Paradise Found!!!

  • 5 of 5

What can I say....this was easily the greatest vacation spot my family has ever stayed in. I do not think you could ask for anything more. Staying in the mid island was perfect. Easy 2 minute access to Lovers key, 6 minutes to barefoot if you want to go south or 6 minutes north to FMB. The best access in my opinion is by the Wyndham which is a 5 minute walk. If you can't find a spot on that beach or a dolphin in the early morning you're missing out.

CVS and some very clutch restaurants are right around the corner which makes life pretty accommodating.

The condo itself is absolute perfection. It is so beautiful, it checks all the boxes for a vacation. If I had to design a place for my family to stay in it would surely look Iike this. You can not believe how nice it is until you are actually there. The pictures just do not do it justice. The pool is fabulous with umbrellas, chairs and bathrooms. We actually opted to just stay at the pool some of the days because it was so nice.

The storage/beach stuff part. Yes this place comes with its very own beach kit. I could not believe how much stuff we actually needed and used on a daily basis. It made our lives so much easier. There is everything you need in there from a wagon, umbrellas, chairs or even a tent. There were even boogie boards in there and normally we have to buy those each year on our vacation.

Finally, Donna is one great owner. She checked in on us once we got there, once during and once at the end. What a great lady. She was spot on with everything this place has to offer and she is the sweetest most gracious person. She and her place went above and beyond all of our expectations. Hopefully if you read this and you are unsure about what spot to pick contact Donna she'll put your mind at ease. However, make sure you do not take my time!!!

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

This condo is beautiful! We stayed for 10 days and loved every minute of it. It is a great location, clean, felt safe and had everything we needed. The photos do not show the new Samsung washer and dryer that are fabulous. The towels are thick and soft like a hotel, and the linens are soft. The internet was slow and slightly annoying if you need to use it a lot. We went to Sanibal Island and rented moped's at Billie's Rentals, we went paddle boarding across from the water tower with Wylie from Suncoast Paddle & Fitness and did a sunset tour with Goodtime Charter. Enjoyed it all! The owner always answered any questions we had and management company is right across the street. We would recommend this condo & easily stay here again.

Beautiful vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the condo for 11 days in January 2017. The condo was beautiful, clean and the owners were very nice. It was a close walk to the beach. The owners provide everything you need to have a fun and relaxing time on the beach. We would highly recommend that you come and stay at this unit. You will not regret your stay!

Gulf of Mexico accessed by Bay Beach Access
Car: not necessary

The beautiful Gulf of Mexico greets you just a short walk across the street. The beach here is quieter, less crowded, and perfect for relaxing, watching dolphins swimming close to shore, taking a nap, or reading.

Also, within walking distance, there is the largest public beach perfect for people watching or water sports as you can rent jet skis, paddle boats and other water sport equipment here. There is a Pinchers's Restaurant and Bar with a huge, fabulous Tiki bar. In the evening, you can enjoy a cocktail, watch a spectacular sunset and listen to a live band. After the sun sets, have fun dancing the night away or just enjoy listening to a variety of music ranging from country, blues or oldies.

If you wish, you can enjoy exploring the island's popular places without having to drive using the fun island Trolly for $.50. They allow you to bring your bicycle and beach gear on the Trolly. The Trolly operates both north and south on the island. To the north there is Times Square with many restaurants and shops. To the south there is Lovers Key State park which has a wonderful beach, and you can rent kayaks here.

Enjoy strolling on the beach and if you enjoy shelling, some of the best shelling is on our beach. I have been told the shelling is better on our beach than in nearby Sanabel! Many people also enjoy fishing directly from wading in the Gulf to see what they can catch.

There are many wonderful restaurants serving seafood caught fresh from the Gulf of Mexico, many within a short walk or drive.
