About the property

A Special Place…

Experience a special place where the sand is sugar white and the palm trees gently sway in the warm gulf breeze. Located on some of the most pristine coastline in Florida, this will be your vacation to renew your mind and spirit. Enjoy the calming sound of the waves as they gently caress the shoreline. The days are filled with carefree sun drenched fun, while the sunsets illuminate the sky with a fiery brilliance unique to the West Coast. If you’re truly looking to get away, it doesn’t get any better than our little slice of heaven on Fort Myers Beach.

Our crystal-clear pool overlooks the white sand and turquoise waters of the Gulf. Take in a game of shuffleboard or just collapse into a chaise lounge and relax! Fire up one of our gas grills and enjoy a great barbecue with family and new friends. When you need a bit of shade just relax under the Gulf front Tiki Hut.

Ideal Fort Myers Beach Location….

Seaside only feels a million miles away from the everyday. We’re actually right in the heart of Fort Myers Beach. Conveniently located just across the street you’ll find a Publix Supermarket perfect for keeping your fridge full. Don’t feel like eating in? Superb dining is to be had at The Bayfront Bistro. Want to take a break from the beach? Boat rentals at Snook Bite Marina are also right across the street. The marina features boat rentals, kayak rentals as well as storage for your boat. The truth is you’ll be within walking distance to all the best Fort Myers has to offer, including shopping, dining and nightlife.

Convenient to restaurants, shops, movie theater and golf. Colonial Bank, Island Hair Gallery, 7-11 within a mile. Located at the middle of the island, this condo is the perfect retreat for couples and families. Close enough to water sports, fishing and shopping. A mile away is Charley's Boat House Grill which has been a local favorite for over 25 years. Also we are close to the Outrigger.

Forget your watch at home, bask in the sun, walk the beach, and enjoy the tropical flowers on Fort Myers Beach where tomorrow will be just as tough!

About Don and Karen Ostendorf

We bought this condo because we know that visitors to the beach want to see the water 24/7. The beach is 7 miles of nice sand and I love to have a reason to go the beach every day.

Don and Karen Ostendorf purchased this condo in 2017

Why Don and Karen Ostendorf chose Fort Myers Beach

I think the weather was the deciding factor. We are from the Midwest and here in Minnesota, summer is too short. The flowers and the palm trees are so therapeutic that we couldn't resist. We also like the mid-island location as we can access the South end bridge or the North end bridge so it is very convenient.

What makes this condo unique

We have all the comforts of home. We like to think that we have covered all the details and we know our guests appreciate the amenities that we have to make their vacation special.

Karen,

I stayed at your Beach Bungalow at beautiful Ft. Myers Beach the first

week of March. I'm an amateur photographer and took about 400 photos

while I was there, one of which I submitted to the Star Tribune website

for their gallery of vacation photos. Well, they printed it in the Travel

Section of yesterday's paper (Sunday May 17th). It made me very happy to

be able to share my vacation memories with the paper's readers. Here's a

copy for your enjoyment. Feel free to use it anyway you wish to market

your wonderful beach house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This 2 BR, 2BA, condo is smack on the beach, facing the beach. Across the street from Publix and perfect. Had everything we needed for a great escape from reality.

Notes:
Fort Myers Beach: Welcome to the beautiful barrier islands of Fort Myers Beach-Estero Island and San Carlos Island – where the sun shines nearly every day and the average temperature is 74 degrees. Beaches are probably the No.1 attraction, with the turquoise blue to bright green waters of the Gulf of Mexico lapping at the silky, white sands and seashells – for the collector in everyone. Called the “world’s safest beach”, it’s an ideal site for family vacations, for there are no steep drop-offs, riptides or undertows. Everywhere you go, wildlife is abundant. Shore birds such as egrets,pelicans,spoonbills,seagulls and herons are found near every body of water, from the gulf to the back bay. Sometimes, even the bald eagle can be spotted soaring over our islands. Fishing and boating are popular pastimes for residents and visitors alike – there are even restaurants you can get to by boat for lunch on (or near) the high seas. Yes, the comforts of civilization are evident as well. The m

BEST CONDO AND LOCATION ON FT MYERS BEACH

  • 5 of 5

THIS IS AN AMAZING PLACE TO STAY ON FT MYERS BEACH IT IS COZY AND CLOSE TO ALL THE FUN THINGS TO DO FROM WALKING ON THE BEACH TO SHOPPING AT SOME QUAINT SHOPS UP AND DOWN THE ISLAND. A PUBLIX ACROSS THE ROAD IS A WALK TO PICK UP ANYTHING YOU MAY NEED. THIS CONDO IS JUST GREAT FOR WALKING OUT THE DOOR AND STEPPING ON THE WHITE SAND AND TAKING A WALK. IN NO TIME YOU CAN BE IN THE WATER OR RELAXING AT THE POOL. WOULD RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYONE.

This property is perfect

  • 5 of 5

My family just spent Memorial Day weekend at this property. It was even better than we expected. It has a great view of the Gulf of Mexico and the beach is in your back yard. Publix is directly across the street which makes shopping very easy. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to relax and enjoy the beach life.

Appreciation from Tennessee

  • 5 of 5

Upon arriving to the condo, I was pleased to see that the building was physically appealing and with beautiful tropical foliage and tall royal palm trees. A small scale Public Grocery Mart (also with beautiful royal palm trees) across the street made for easy no travel purchases. The condo had very comfortable furniture including wonderfully comfortable beds. Two bedrooms and two bath rooms. It also contained all necessary items for enjoying meals at the condo. Great views of the ocean from living room, kitchen and one of the bedrooms. The screened in lanai was a favorite place to enjoy reading a book or visiting with friends and having a refreshing tropical drink all the while watching and listening to the gentle ocean surf. Also great view of dolphins swimming during daylight hours. The onsite pool was clean and inviting with plenty of pool side furniture. They also had several gas grills in the pool area under the Tiki hut. I grilled out steaks with my condo neighbors and enjoyed the fellowship. The ocean is just steps from the condo for which I spent many hours relaxing in the warm, clear Gulf waters. Royal Palm trees afforded shade and the lawn chaise's for relaxation by the ocean. I was lulled to sleep at night with the sounds of the ocean from the open windows. So Relaxing! I look forward to coming back very soon.

Close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed with our 6 year old twin boys and the house was just big enough for the 4 of us. The pool is very small and both boys could touch bottom, which was actually perfect for us since then we didn't have to worry about them going under. However larger kids might be disappointed at the size. The backyard area and canal dock somehow provided hours worth of entertainment for them with the snails and lizards all over the place. Very close to the widest strip of beach, just across the street. As a side note we rented bikes and found that to be a bit of a bust as the main road on the island is narrow and under construction with no safe shoulder or sidewalk in some places. However riding the bikes along the beach at low tide in the evening was a blast!

Ideal Location on Fort Myers Beach

  • 5 of 5

If you want to stay on Fort Myers Beach, it is hard to beat this location which is toward the quieter south end of the island. Access to the widest beach I've ever seen is just yards away across the main street. There is a plaza less than 1 mile away with restaurants and a CVS. There is a Publix about 2 miles away. There are beach bars also within walking distance with live music almost nightly.

The house itself was clean and had just about everything we needed. The washer and dryer came in very handy. The pool, though very small, was clean and is cleaned weekly. Wifi service was very good and important to us as my wife worked 3 days. Plenty of towels for bath and beach as well as cooking utensils and dinnerware.

We would stay here again if we were to stay on Fort Myers Beach. The north end of the island is much too congested. Expect traffic delays when heading north to the mainland. But there is plenty to do on Fort Myers Beach and nearby Lovers Key State Park to the south.
