A Winderful Experience

  • 4 of 5

The condo has had some excellent updating and we found it very comfortable. The beds were excellent. It was immaculately clean and had all the necessary amenities. Our favorite characteristic was the screened-in patio, facing south and overlooking the ocean. We enjoyed our mornings there and sunsets in the evenings. The only criticism would be that we had to drive down the beach to another area for beach accommodations. I suppose as this was "off-season" there weren't any beach canopy chairs available for rental. The owner did have one umbrella and some very uncomfortable fold-up chairs for our use but this was inadequate for a full day on the beach. We would certainly consider going back to this rental. Great value!

Nice Condo on Beach

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend staying in this condo. The owner Reale is a very personable guy, and cares very much about his tenants. They supplied paper products for our use, and informed us of everything we needed to know for accommodation. The condo was nice and clean, and comfortable and quiet. I look forward to staying here again sometime. Thanks again Real for your hospitality!!

Our fabulous beachfront vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I'm sure there are many lovely condos for rent on Ft. Myers Beach, but with this unit we hit the jackpot. We were so thankful that we contacted this owner. Not only is the condo an oceanfront, corner unit, which allows gorgeous views of the water and the many beautiful water fowl that visit the pond right in front of the lanai, but the owners, Reale and Emily are the perfect hosts. We were personally welcomed to our piece of paradise by a gracious and caring owner, and entered the unit with music softly playing and the sound of the waves lapping the shore right outside our unit. Heaven. The condo has been updated with a huge, tiled walk in shower in the master, comfortable furniture from which to enjoy the view, and many amenities and supplies, including coffee, spices and things to get us started in the pantry as well as bath products. When I mentioned that I'd like to learn more about the flora and fauna of coastal Florida, Reale immediately called a friend who has a vast knowledge of the local shells, birds, etc. and who was happy to accompany us on a beach walk, which greatly enhanced our stay. When our toaster failed, within minutes he brought the one from their unit for our use. He suggested several restaurants that were fantastic. We asked for a special recommendation, as my birthday was later that week, and the day before I received an email wishing me a wonderful day from Reale and Emily. What more can I say?

Anything you could want is here for your use, as other reviewers have stated. The location is toward the southern end of Estero Island, near Lovers Key State Park, so it isn't as congested as the area to the north and is walkable to shops and restaurants. In addition to a perfect location and lovely unit, we felt as if we were visiting friends. It certainly was the best experience with a rental we have ever enjoyed, and we look forward to returning.

A great month in a wonderful condo

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I visited Fort Myers Beach for the first time this January and could not have picked a better place to stay. Reale and Emily are super hosts and the condo is emaculate. Nothing was missing but it was great to have the owners in the same complex just in case. The unit is not only very clean but it is also quite sound proof with all the comforts of home. Thanks again Reale for a great month and see you next year.

Oceanfront Beauty with all the bells & whistles

  • 5 of 5

What a vacation! Yes, the weather was perfect but this 2 bedroom condo right on the ocean was too. The owner thought of everything and genuinely wanted to make us feel at home & have everything we needed. We didn't need to call him for anything, but was only a phone call away.

The renovated condo has 2 full bathrooms with granite, hair dryers, ceramic, double shower, great lighting, lots of towels & even shampoo, soap, toilet paper & more. The granite kitchen is very well equipped with bar, pantry, coffee maker, blender, toaster, microwave, double fridge with ice maker etc., paper towels, etc. The large living & dining room is comfortable and elegant and has the extra window as it is an end unit.

The view is outstanding and the large patio is fully equipped with comfortable chairs & table. Oh & the master which has a king sized bed has an ensuite, large walk-in closet & double linen closet, window with view & patio door to the lanai. What else, beach towels provided, tons of birds in the little estuary in front of the condo before you get to the beach. We saw lots of dolphins from the balcony. Bob, while swimming was 5 feet away from 2. Reale's location on the beach is quiet to the hoards at Fort Myers Beach at the pier. Lots of places to lounge, swim & collect shells. He also has a locker where he has beach chairs, mats, etc.

I should have kept something to the imagination, but once I start ... we were thrilled - best vacation ever!! Hope you'll have us back!
