About the property

Exquisitely Furnished Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6), Garage

First Floor. Best Location. Easy living in this most prestigious gated golf community is full of recreation. Bordering on the Orange River and just minutes from the fabulous Calloosehatchee River. This is also your opportunity for a maintenance free lifestyle so you can enjoy the great year round weather that Southwest Florida has to offer. Outdoor fun and fitness is easy here with so much to do. Step outside and just a few steps away is the Idlewild Amenities Center where you will find an inviting swimming pool, relaxing hot tub, restrooms, a workout facility with TV and weights, and an entertainment room with kitchen (for meetings and social gatherings) that is exclusive to our street of coach homes. Our association fees cover all maintenance so all you have to do is enjoy your beautiful surroundings.

There are nine miles of trails for biking or hiking through the nature preserves and wetlands and along the golf courses and riverfront. Brand new his & hers bicycles are in the garage waiting for you. Ride over to the River Village and there are kayaks and canoes to take out on the river. Fresh air, sun shine, but wait, there's more. For serious boaters, Verandah has SweetWater Marina, a full service wet and dry storage facility. Just 5 minutes away, they will gas up and drop your boat into the Caloosahatchee River for a boat ride to the Gulf of Mexico, or across the state westbound through the locks to Lake Ockechobee or all the way to Palm Beach. Of course if you are water sports enthusiasts, as we are, water-skiing, wakeboarding or jetskiing along the river is the place to be.

If you are looking for a private country club experience in a community of many multi-million dollar homes, Verandah is for you. Two professional world class golf courses, a fabulous tennis club with state-of-the art fitness center, and private dining overlooking the Orange River and hundreds of acres of preserved wildlife.

About Irene Jeannides

Irene & Paul Jeannides, Hometown, Lake Forest, IL. Married 45 years, parents of 4 adult children & 4 grandchildren. We love nature and the great outdoors.

Irene Jeannides purchased this condo in 2005

Why Irene Jeannides chose Fort Myers

First Floor, Steps from amenities center, with swimming pool, jacuzzi, restrooms, kitchen and party room, mail box and extra parking.

What makes this condo unique

Small dogs are welcome. Very dog friendly community, plus we are NOT located near a pond. Safer for dogs and children, as alligators like ponds in Florida. Ramp from Garage to interior makes unloading groceries a breeze since we have a wagon that rides up the slight incline easily. Basic Handicap accessibility.

My husband and I stayed at the condo the past two years? It is like living in paradise. We met and have continued to be friends with several of the other residents. The condo is everything you could hope for and more. All you need to bring are your clothes and personal items. They have thought of everything that will make this a most memorable. The pool is literally right across the road and heated so a fresh swim in the morning is a great way to start your day. There are bikes at the condo for discovering new areas. There is a service road that takes you to the grocery store and other local shops, just down the road is a fresh market with wonderful fruit and veggies. The condo is just a short drive to get to the hustle and bustle but home is peaceful and calm like country living. Illness is keeping us away this year and we will really miss going down but you will have a wonderful time meet new friends and just enjoy the condo, the lanii, the pool the events planned by the association to get everyone acquainted. The months just fly by. We were fortunate to have our family fly down to stay a week or so and my grandchildren refer to it as grandma and grandpa's condo. The loved everything and there was enough bed and bath for two or three families at a time. I think the property is a little piece of heaven.

March 2010 review

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming unit, tastefully decorated with everything you need for an enjoyable stay. It is located conveniently across the street from the community centre with swimming pool, hot tub, small fitness room and BBQ. Very dog friendly area with lots of trails. There are plenty of dogs so it is a great way to meet people. There is a dog park not far away although we did not tend to go there. There were times for larger dogs and smaller dogs.

We took a temporary membership in golf club and fitness club which provided access to unlimited golf on 2 great but challenging courses, the fitness centre has a super pool and fintess facilities. The club house is lovely and has a very reasonbaly priced dining room, great food and nice bar area.

There is a Publix nearby, which you can acess without having to go out onto highway. Plenty of restaurants, shopping and movie theatre within a 20 min drive.

we very much enjoyed our stay.

The weather was dissapointing early part of March but improved toward the middle and end of March

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful escape! I really enjoyed my stay at Veranda. This condo is beautifully decorated and equipped with everything from a comfy recliner to 2 new bikes. There are miles of cool paths right out the front door. Some even take you through the woods via boardwalks. The pool and workout room are across the street from the condo and they have outdoor power outlets so you can plug in the laptop while sunbathing (if you need to). The nearby shopping center has a good Chinese take-out place that I enjoyed almost every night on the screened-in lanai. Next time, I want to bring my husband and rent a boat on the river.

  • 5 of 5

The Veranda is a natural preserve, that provides walking trails, golf, excellent dining and just all around relaxing community. The condo we stayed in was decorated very nicely and was comfortable and provided plenty of space. Located on the golf course, the view was great and the pool was just across the street. I would return anytime and recommend this particular condo as first rate

  • 5 of 5

Veranda is a lovely golfing community with lots of areas to walk and enjoy the wildlife as well as the beautiful plantings. The condo is beautful as well. We are across the street from the pool as post pick up and in back of us is part of the 36 hole golf course. The home is decorated in the Tommy Bahama motiff and has a well furnished kitchen, abundent linens and towels and a very nice office set up. Our experience here has been very positive
