Watch the dolphins jump and enjoy the beautiful sunsets from the master bedroom or balcony.

Largest, newly-refinished gulf-front pool on the beach.

About Robert Thomas

My family and I moved to SW Florida in 2007 to escape the cold northern winters. Living in nearby Fort Myers, we scoured the area seeking a condo that offered the best of everything--a totally unobstructed view of blue Gulf waters, white silky sand on a calm beach, the shortest walk to the waves from our doorstep, and everything fun that Florida has to offer just seconds away. We found it--and so have you!

Robert Thomas purchased this condo in 2013

Why Robert Thomas chose Fort Myers Beach

Many properties have partial views of the beach, or have the path to the beach blocked with waterways, or are too far from the water to hear the waves relax you to sleep. Not our place! Some properties are too close to road, and you hear it. Not at this unit! Some places have a tiny pool--ours is the largest on the beach. It really is the best of all worlds.

What makes this condo unique

In our condo, you will walk from the elevator to the unit on your outside walkway, enjoying the tropical views of palm trees, Estero Bay, swimming pools, cyclists--no gloomy hallways here. When you take your first step into the unit--the gorgeous view of the beach takes your breath away. All your stress and tension slip away, and you're in the tropics!

2nd time in this great apartment

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at Robert's apartment and it was just as wonderful as the first time.

The location is wonderful right on the beach. Within 300 yards from the complex is a plaza with 7 restaurants and several bars. The apartment had everything we wanted, except, as a Brit, the only things missing were a kettle and tea pot.

I will stay here again in a heart beat.

The perfect place to stay on Ft. Myers Beach

  • 5 of 5

We just arrived home from a two month vacation at this condo. It was our first time renting for that long and the first time renting from VRBO. We were extremely happy with both the condo and it’s owner. This condo is equipped with everything you could possibly think of (and even things you probably wouldn’t think of like a telescope and beach toys. While we didn’t use them, they were there if we wanted to). It had plenty of towels, sheets, dishes, glasses, silverware, etc. and, from what I heard from other tenants, this is not always the norm. The location of the condo was another plus. The only thing you’d really need a car of is food shopping. There is a movie theater, church, several restaurants, fruit/vegetable stand, and a variety of shops all within walking distance. The beach is just out the back door and the water is clean and warm. The pool is very nice but pretty crowded although the couple of times we went there we were able to get two chairs together. I can’t think of any reason why anyone wouldn’t have anything but a wonderful time staying here.

Great Views, Great Beach, Great Pool ... enough said!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is everything you could want in Florida, on the white sandy beach, beautiful views. We enjoyed watching the dolphins, pelicans and sunset right from the balcony. We liked being on the quiet end of Fort Myers Beach. Times square is a short trolley ride away which we enjoyed for New Years fireworks. There is a plaza that is located a 5 minute walk away for restaurants and food. Pool was clean, large and warm but would have liked to use it after dusk. Clean, great appliances and comfortable beds. All the dishes and utensils you could want. We hope to enjoy it again in a few years on our next trip to Florida!

18 Miles
Nearest Beach
Fort Myers Beach
Car: recommended

Located on the quieter end of world famous Fort Myers Beach, your condo is ten steps to the beach, a walk to numerous restaurants and shops, and a convenient trolley ride or drive to literally hundreds of resort attractions. Dine on the waterfront, dance into the night, shop at dozens of specialty shops. Enjoy, and come back to your peaceful escape. Sip a beverage and take in the sensational sunsets from beach below, or from your lanai (that's Florida-speak for balcony).
