Great condo with wonderful views and easy ocean access

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a fabulous week. The condo was clean and perfect size for us. They provided everything for the beach,chairs, umbrella, sand toys, beach games, towels, etc. And it was right there. We also used the pool which was great. Easy walk to shops. Nice to have a place to park our car. You have to pay everywhere. Trolley pick up was right there if you didn't want to walk. Lots of shells too. Definitely would stay here again. Loved not having to have a key either. Thanks for everything.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great comments about our unit. We do have the best location for a lot of reasons, the direct beach access, the N end of the island has the least amount of traffic, the shops and dining is just a .5 mile walk on the beach or the road, there is a trolley if you don't want to walk that stops right outside the building. Designated parking space and we like to provide the little extras that most don't. Thanks for the 5 stars.

Clean and tidy

  • 5 of 5

Condo was very clean when we arrived, with beds made and towels provided. Kitchen had everything we needed, pots and pans, utensils, etc. Great location at far end of beach with one porch overlooking beach, and the other overlooking Bowditch park. We enjoyed our stay very much, and would rent here again!

Beautiful beach, great condo!

  • 4 of 5

First, I'll say the condo was great! VERY clean which is most important to me. Beautiful balcony facing the beach. 2nd balcony with good views too. I wish I could rate a 4.5 since I really only had a few small issues that might not even bother many people.

The first issue, since I'm a very light sleeper, was being so close to the recycle dumpster and the trolley turn around. Many mornings, I was awakened by the trolleys, beeping while backing up, and some mornings, by the crashing of recycles being dumped into the trucks. If you're a light sleeper, and like to sleep in, that might bother you.

Another issue could be a big one if you will be working from the condo. The internet was very spotty. Sometimes, we were unable to connect at all. Other times, it was fine, but mostly, pretty slow.

The condo is at the end of the beach, right before a park, which is great for the quiet beach experience. On the other hand, I found it too far to walk to restaurants and shops, and since parking is difficult on the island, we took our chances finding parking when we wanted to venture out. The trolley does stop close to the condo, so you can use that to get around, you just have to be aware of the times the trolleys run.

Other than those things, the week was great! Nicely appointed kitchen, great beach chairs and an umbrella, plenty of towels, pillows and comfortable linens.

Beware! The traffic coming onto the island over the bridge can keep you in bumper to bumper traffic for quite a while, so plan accordingly. We didn't know that last time we were in Ft. Myers and almost missed my sisters sunset wedding! Sometimes, there's no traffic and you just can drive right over.

The owner was great to work with and we enjoyed our week.

Owner's Response: We always respect our guests opinions and we urge them to review our place. This review is the first in many years that isn't a 5 star!! The internet in the whole building has now been replaced and is individual to each unit now. The restaurants are .5 mile away from the condo, walking on the beach or on the sidewalks along the road is quite easy to maneuver but if you can't walk that far the trolley runs very often to pick you up. Our unit is very well appointed and super clean...Come See!!! for yourself.....
