About the property

One Bedroom, One Bath Gulf Front On The Beach

The condo was decorated to give you the feel of the beach from the moment you walk in the door. From the pillow top mattress King size bed, to the tennis rackets, beach chairs, umbrella, etc. provided for your use as well as binoculars to view the abundant wildlife that you will see right from your windows, doors, and balcony. WIFI is also included in the unit so you don't have to go down to the first floor to use your computer, you can do it in the comfort of your own space.

The new fully stocked granite counter kitchen should have everything you need if you wish to cook a meal or make yourself a fancy drink. (This does not include the food or drink itself, just all the kitchen gadgets required).

The bathroom has a walk in shower with a bench to make access into the shower easy and a pleasure to take a nice strong shower at the end of your day - the water pressure is great.

The sofa is a reclining sofa (NOT a sofa sleeper), and is so comfortable at the end of the day when you have been running around and just want to relax. The coffee table is on casters so it can easily be moved when reclining.

The condo also has books and DVD's just in case you have forgotten to bring something to read or if you just feel like watching a movie at the end of your fun filled day on the beach.

About Jana Charvat

I grew up in Lombard, IL and went to Glenbard East High School there, and then moved to Wisconsin where I then lived for 35 years before moving to Florida last year (November 2012). I love this area so much because of the great weather and all of the things there are to do, of which I just love kayaking in this area, there are hundreds of miles of trails.

Jana Charvat purchased this condo in 2013

Why Jana Charvat chose Fort Myers Beach

As soon as I saw the view from all of the windows, doors and balcony, I knew this condo would be a place that many people would really be overwhelmed by the great view, just as I was and would really do justice to 'Best View Rental'. The location is outstanding for people who do not want to drive to go to dinner and can walk across the street or down the beach as there are so many places to go that are walking distance.

What makes this condo unique

I own three other condos and have had so much fun getting to know some of the guests and getting the feedback of how much they have enjoyed staying at my places, for the warmth created by the decorating, to having it stocked, down to replacement batteries that might be needed, to make it truly and home away from home experience.

Wow! Loved the balcony view!

  • 5 of 5

We spent every morning eating breakfast on the balcony! Just stunning views. We also saw a few sunsets from that balcony. This was a much needed vacation after a hectic year of losses in our family . . . we needed time to get away from it all and regroup. The condo was very adequately equipped and there were restaurants across the street so we didn't have to cook dinners. We were disappointed that the pool was still closed when we got there and due to construction on the roof, things became quite noisy at times. We had a fabulous time, however, and would definitely come back to this condo if we visit Fort Myers Beach again. Thank you for the getaway!

Owner's Response: It makes me very happy that you enjoyed the condo. I am sorry for the construction - this project was originally supposed to be done by mid-November. The pool is finally open today, December 5, 2016. Unfortunately, not in time for your enjoyment.

Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

The condo is beautiful and fully equipped. We had a wonderful time and will be back next year if at all possible. The view from the deck is awesome. The unit was very clean and well maintained and beautifully furnished. The weather was great and we enjoyed watching the dolphins and all the sea birds.

Fabulous Fall Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a 10 night stay in Jana's condo. What a wonderful experience we had!! The view is spectacular and the location is private, away from the busier public areas. Dolphin sightings everyday and even a daily manatee sighting from the balcony. Condo had everything we needed. Perfect for 2 people that love the sights, sounds and smells of the ocean! Thank you Jana for such a great vacation spot. We highly recommend your condo to anyone looking for the perfect place to stay on Ft Myers Beach!

Map

Nearest Airport
25 Miles
Ft. Myers (RSW)

Right across the street is Santini Plaza which has several restaurants and shops which are varied in price and atmosphere. Of the restaurants there is South Beach Grille, upscale atmosphere, a little pricy, but good food; Francesco Italian Deli & Pizzeria, a take out place, the portions are huge; Sandbar Grille, a varied menu, reasonably priced, Castaways, more of a bar that has entertainment, nightly that does serve food, Subway, sub sandwiches; Fish House, rather hidden behind Santini, known for their seafood and overlooking the Bay, nothing fancy, but good food.

There are powerboat and kayak rents right across the street as well at the Fish-Tale Marina.

You can also catch the trolley going either north to Ft. Myers and all the stops on the island or you can go south to Bonita Beach. The stops are right by the condo complex and you can check you smart phone for when the exact time the trolley will make the stop, instructions at the trolley stop.
