If Golfing is your game you can challenge yourself at any of the public courses that abound in the area.

How about the 'Grape Fruit League'? Major League Baseball Spring Training is at its Best in March. MN Twins and Boston Red Sox training facilities are right around the corner from Parker Lakes.

Shopping and every type of dining establishment surround the area. Fort Myers is a central location. An easy day drive to Orlando or south to the Keys.

And the best is yet to come... world renowned fishing, beaches and shelling are the true jewels of the area. All are just a short few short miles from your door step.

This is the one! This spacious, two bedroom condominium is modern, clean, and very stylishly decorated and coordinated throughout the spacious first floor home. It is FULLY equipped for comfortable living; your every convenience has been anticipated and provided for.

Once you get there you won't want to leave, it sure beats snow and ice!

Perfect Location! Perfect Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Great experience renting Barbara and Dennis's condo for two months!! It's adorably decorated, extremely clean and supplied with everything you need! The location was excellent to go to beaches, shopping, and downtown. The community people are just amazing and kind. The entire Parker Lakes community is just beautifully landscaped and well maintained. The pools are amazing too! Best place I've rented by far.

Parker Lakes, Fort Myers, FL

  • 5 of 5

We needed 4 month rental while waiting for our new home to be built in a different community. We found this condo to be perfect, clean, comfortable & near everything. In fact, we loved it so much that we cancelled our other contract & bought a resale condo in the same community as the rental!

A Little Disappointed

  • 3 of 5

The condo was very clean and the kitchen well stocked with any utensil you'd need for meal prep. I did find the furnishings to be a bit 'consignment shop' quality and the art work 'flea market' quality. Although not of the highest quality they were more than adequate. We enjoyed the location in the greater community. When we arrived there were not hangers so we purchased from the dollar store. The guest bathtub didn't drain so rather than call the owners we purchased drain cleaner and had to give the tub 2 applications and it was still a little slow. I did let the owner know when we left that they might want to have a plumber take a look. I felt a little like 'staff' when it was requested we change the air filter but that was okay and we were asked to accept a shipment of new patio blinds. I spent 4 hours cleaning per instructions. I do not know who inspected the property after we left but we were docked for not cleaning the toilets or vacuuming--both of these were done prior to walking out the door. Perhaps the inspector gets paid for re-doing those 2 things (that were done properly). I suggest any guest take a full set of entry and exit photos in the event this happens to another party.

Love Parker Lakes

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 months and found the property to be in excellent condition and very well supplied. Barbara was only a phone call away and took care of any concerns quickly. We especially enjoyed breakfast and lunch on the lanai watching all the birds and even saw otters on three occasions. We would have rented for another year, but we loved Parker Lakes so much we bought a place of our own. Beautiful trees and common areas. Great place to walk, ride bikes, and enjoy two great pools. We enjoyed The Farmers Market on Saturday mornings, early birds at The Prawnbroker and Bistro 41, Pinchers, and Happy Hour crab at Jacaranda on Sanibel is delicious and a great bargain.

Perfect Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We made this condo at Parker Lakes our home for January & February 2011. The condo is equipped with everything you needed to make it your home. The pools at Parker Lakes were great, in fact the lap pool is just a very short walk from the condo. There are many great restaurants in the area. Fort Myers beach is just a short drive away. The owners were very helpful during the rental process and during our stay.

About Dennis or Barbara Keicher

We are originally from Western New York; we always looked forward to winter and early spring vacations to drive away the long, winter 'blues'.

Well, we moved to an even colder place in the winter - Minneapolis/St. Paul. Now warm sunshine in the winter is even more desirable.

Fort Myers had been one of our favorite destinations for years prior to purchasing here. We love to fish and enjoy the beaches and natural beauty of this tropical area.

Dennis or Barbara Keicher purchased this condo in 2009

Why Dennis or Barbara Keicher chose Parker Lakes

We looked at many different properties but we were really impressed with Parker Lakes Community because of the rich amenities and well kept resort grounds. The friendly people, central location and a quiet, safe secure environment really attracted us also.

Come down to Parker Lakes this season and warm up, you'll fall in love with it too!
