VIEWS ARE SUPERB FROM THIS PENTHOUSE-FLOOR BEACH CONDO! Looking out your 6th floor lanai window you won't be able to see a single building obstructing your view of lush Lover's Key State Park to the south, endless azure seas to the west, or natural beaches stretching off into the distance along the coast. Watch the day unfold from sunrise to sunset while you enjoy the warm tropical breeze from your chair. Dolphins frequent the shallow waters in front of you and the shelling is superb.

While you stroll this huge, gorgeous beach, you likely will see Dolphins, Manatees, Pelicans and dozens of shore birds. We provide beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, picnic ware and toys plus a beach cart to haul everything!

Bring your fishing poles and catch Grouper, Snook, Sharks and more from the shore or bridge at Big Carlos Pass. Fort Myers Beach is home to the renowned Shrimp fishing fleet. Enjoy fresh catches daily.

Indulge yourself with fabulous tastes from local restaurants, grill-out or picnic on the beachfront. Our kitchen has everything you need should you just want to cozy up and dine 'at home'.

Kayak or boat to Mound Key, an archaeological treasure built as the Calusa Indian's headquarters over one thousand years ago. Stroll through the Matanzas Pass Nature Preserve and enjoy Florida's flora, fauna, and bird life in its primitive state. Walk to Lover's Key State Park for kayaking, shelling, and picnics.

Ride the Beach Trolley from one end of the island to the other. An excellent public library is nearby as well as movie theater, fine restaurants, entertainment, and shopping. Times Square boasts of live nightly performances and outdoor dining. This could be your best vacation yet!

FREE WIFI is available not only in the downstairs lobby but also in our UNIT. Enjoy the comforts of home while using the internet 24 hours a day.

Our LIVING AREA features a 42 inch flat screen TV with HD so you can watch from the kitchen while you prepare meals. Relax on the comfy new leather sofa/sleeper or in our leather recliner and listen to the wide selection of music CDs or read a book from our shelves.

Our well stocked KITCHEN provides many extras! Plenty of dishware and glassware for fine dining inside, plus outdoor picnic supplies, most utensils you would ever need, waffle maker, electric pancake griddle, crock pot, blender, coffee maker, bar set, new pans and so much more!

Our formal DINING AREA features a glass top wicker table for six plus seating for three at the bar. Beautiful tile floor is softened with an area rug except in the bedrooms where there is wall-to-wall carpet. Our new sofa (which converts to a queen size bed), comfy leather ottoman, and new leather recliner are all perfect for reading, relaxing, or viewing TV.

The MASTER BEDROOM has two matching chests with reading lights on either side of the king sized bed plus a hand painted storage cabinet on which the flat screen TV sits. The master BATH features a luxurious shower, many cabinets, and granite counter top.

The GUEST BEDROOM with its own flat screen TV is cozy and casual with natural wicker double dresser, nightstand, and twin beds. The totally remodeled BATH has a tile shower and also a large linen closet. Hair dryers provided in each bathroom.

What makes this condo unique

Our units are family owned; you are not just another number with a large management company. Kathleen (in yellow blouse) and Bonnie (in red) are our managers. We believe our units offer the perfect vacation. We know because our children built sand castles here, swam in the gulf, collected shells, and watched the beautiful sunsets from the lanai. We have sailed and boated in the Gulf and explored the islands. If you want to walk the beach--ours is the nicest. A new barrier island is forming right off our beach. This allows for miles of beachcombing where you can see birds and discover shells without the crowds.

Some rentals on Estero are next to the salt water marsh. When the tide goes out they have muck between their units and the Gulf. We have an incredibly wide sandy white beach at all times

We keep our units sparkling clean and updated. All have fully equipped ktichens. All have heated swimming pools. All offer sunset views. All are tastefully decorated.

Please join us for your next vacation in the sun.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our first experience renting on a vacation. We had always stayed in hotels. The time we spent at Carlos Pointe was wonderful! We felt like we were in a cozy home. Bonnie and her family were very kind and professional. The condo is tastefully decorated and updated. Everything is clean and well kept. It was nice to have a kitchen and laundry. The view of the beach is fantastic. The building was quiet which is what we wanted for spring break. We loved the area and travel from the condo was easy. My 11 year old loved the pool which faces the Gulf. My 13 year old loved the beach area and playing ping-pong in the rec. area, at the condo. Our family felt safe, the beach area is also private. We would recommend this condo to anyone!! Thanks Bonnie!

Very nice well care for Condo on great beach

  • 5 of 5

The condo was exactly as pictured and described. Had a wonderful week and great weather. They just recently added to the beach Cabanna's for rent. Wonderful and pleasant people to deal with. Shelling was great, walking in the beach and loved how close it is to Bonita Sorings. Thank you to the Condo Owners who rented to us. Would definitely recommend!

Wonderful Condo - Just Like Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful unit for a relaxing beach vacation! The owner's have thought of everything. It is beautifully updated and everything you need for a week on the beach. The location is great on the quieter end of the island. Easy access to the beach and the owners provide beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers and even a beach cart to haul everything. Everything was clean and organized.

Great beach for shelling and seeing the dolphins right from the beach. We went on a jet ski tour and also saw manatees. It's also a close drive to Sanibel Island and well worth the trip - it's beautiful there.

The owner's are a true pleasure to work with and really make you feel welcome. They put their personal touch in making sure your stay is comfortable and enjoyable. The rental process was very smooth and easy. Thanks Bonnie and Kathleen for making our family vacation even more special. Would definitely rent here again. Can't say enough great things.

Not Just a Rental, but a Home!

  • 5 of 5

The minute we walked into this condo we could tell this wasn't just another rental, it was somebody's home. All the little and big extras from lotions to spices, beach chairs and games, and a well stocked kitchen made this such an enjoyable vacation (most comfortable bed I've ever slept in!). The location was great on the quite south end of Estero Island yet close to the action; the birds nesting on the beach, an osprey sitting on the railing, and an almost 360 degree view walking from the elevator to the front door.

So much to do around Ft. Meyers - some of the best shelling right outside the condo, great pool and sunsets, kayaking in Lovers Key just across the bridge, fishing, wonderful restaurants all over (loved Ford's Garage in downtown Ft. Meyers, Dixie Fish Co. and Doc Ford's next to each other just over the bridge leaving the island, and a great mexican restaurant just down the road from the condo [Skyes restaurant]. We loved spending most of the day at the Edison-Ford Winter Estates in Ft. Meyers, the National Shell Museum and the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge (great boat tour) on Sanibel Is. We also highly recommend Captiva Cruises on Captiva Is. to Boca Grande on Gasparilla Island (the best crab cake sandwitch is at Temptations Restuarant in Boca Grande!)

All in all a wonderful, relaxing 2 weeks - should have spent a month or more! Maybe next time?

Would definitely recommend

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful week staying at this condo. Accurate description and photos accurately portray what the condo looks like. Close to the main beaches but located in a quiet wildlife peninsula. Everything we needed for a great week at the beach. Bonnie was a pleasure to communicate with and is very prompt and thorough. Everything was spick & span upon our arrival, and everything worked just fine so we had no reason to contact her during our stay. Would definitely consider staying at this condo again if we return to the Fort Myers area.

Incredible

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this condo for spring break. It was perfect! Bonnie, the owner was a pleasure to work with. The condo is beautiful, great views and had extras we weren't expecting (we've been traveling for many years now). Close to lovers key, and only a few miles from Times Square, the beach was perfect for us.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at this condo making it feel like home away from home. It was updated with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops in the kitchen, and even the bathrooms had granite as well. This well appointed unit had every amenity you could think of: including hair dryers, washer and dryer, clothes drying rack, beach chairs & towels, coolers, blender, playing cards and board games, wi-fi, every cooking/baking pan and utensils you could ever need. There were even reuseable beverage plastic ware cups, plates and bowls for kids, as well as ceramic dishes and beverage glasses. But we would highly recommend this luxurious 6th floor unit for its beautiful gulf views and tasteful decor alone! The screened-in lanai was a great place to relax and watch the boats and jet-skis cruise by and see the gorgeous sunsets if you weren't already sitting on the soft white endless sandy beach. Bonnie made sure you had everything you needed to make your stay enjoyable.
