The complex is located directly across the street from Santini Marina Plaza which boasts a number of stores, restaurants, a deli, a marina, a bank, a bookstore, a drug store, hardware store, and a stationery store with a U.S. Post Office outlet. A public golf course is located down the street, and a trolley which runs the length of the island, stops directly in front of the complex. The fare is 25 cents. You will enjoy not having to use your car for everything. OFF SEASON SPECIAL: May - Oct., rental fee is half off the in-season price. There is also great flexibility during this time of year with regard to check-in and check-out times as well as length of stay.

About Chris and Steve Reimann

Chris and Steve, who reside in Long Island, NY, are used to beaches and spectacular water views. That is why they fell in love with Southwest Florida and especially Ft. Myers Beach. After renting for many years at EBTC, they decided to buy their unit because of their strong affinity for the beauty of the area and the ambience of the complex.

Chris and Steve Reimann purchased this condo in 2000

It was a comfortable stay in a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

The beach felt like a private area with few people. The natural areas and parks were so great. The Corkscrew Preserve was nearby and well worth the visit.
