About the property

Studio 1 bedroom/1 bathroom, Sleeps 4

Come visit Ft. Myers Beach in this 2nd floor 1BD, 1BA corner unit in the A building at Estero Beach & Tennis Club (EBT)! Well-furnished, very clean, updated, pet-friendly (see below if you are interested in traveling with your canine companion!) Sorry, we do not allow cats in the unit.

Our newly updated unit offers comfortable sleeping for up to 4 people on the brand new king-size bed and brand new queen sofa sleeper.

The kitchen comes fully equipped and all linens (and extra sheets, pillows, towels) will be provided. A boogie board, beach chairs, umbrella, and noodles can all be found here to take down to the pool or beach. You can travel light and still have all the conveniences of home! Attached to the unit is an open-air lanai where you can watch the sunrise, or check out the action happening across the street at the plaza. We offer high-speed WIFI and cable in unit. Laundry facility located on site on the main floor of the building. EBT is very safe for your family. The lobby entrance for each building requires a passcode to gain access to the elevators.

There are tons of on-site activities to do on the tropical 10-acres found at EBT. You can play tennis on the newly redone, professional quality tennis courts, try your hand at shuffleboard, take a dip in the heated pool, lay out poolside on one of the many lounge chairs, or cook your own dinner on the gas grill.

If you'd like to explore, you don’t have to go far! Walk steps to the beautiful 7-miles of white-sand beaches, or head across the street to find an 18-holf golf course, Fort Myers Beach Golf Club, as well as a marina with fishing charters, boat, kayak, and jet-ski rentals, and dolphin/sight-seeing tours.

Don't plan on bringing your car on vacation? No problem. Take the Fort Myers Beach Trolley! It will pick you up right in front of EBT on Estero Blvd. The trolley services the Island and has stops all along the beach, running from Bonita Springs to South Fort Myers near Summerlin Road. Head north to Times Square in downtown Fort Myers Beach where you can find many shops, restaurants, live music, and a fishing pier. Head south to Lovers Key State Park. Estero Beach & Tennis Club is a short 30 minutes from Southwest Florida International Airport. There are several airport taxis or car rental companies located inside the airport. There is also a CVS within walking distance and a Publix grocery store about 5 minutes away on the trolley to get anything you may need for your stay!

This unit is clean, comfortable, and designed to make your stay in Ft. Myers Beach enjoyable and worry-free. Please inquire about the discounts available certain times of the year and for stays longer than one week!

MORE INFORMATION FOR DOG OWNERS: The Club does have size restrictions (up to ~20lbs.) and vaccination requirements, but any pets in accordance with their policies are allowed in this unit. The Club has a one pet per unit policy. Please ask for a full description of pet health requirements. The condo association asks that you use the labeled areas to let your dog use the bathroom and also that you clean up after your pet. There is a critical wildlife area on the beach behind the condo buildings that dogs are not allowed to play in, but you may walk through it with your pet to get to pet-friendly sections of the beach (all of the beach except this specific area) :)

About Kelly Graff

I am a small business owner from WI. The cold winters in Wisconsin sent me south to explore southwest Florida. I think Ft. Myers Beach is a wonderful area with gorgeous beaches and tons of entertainment options.

I will do everything I can to make your stay an enjoyable one! Please let me know if you have any questions.


Kelly Graff purchased this condo in 2013

Why Kelly Graff chose South Island

I stayed at Estero Beach & Tennis Club for several years with my parents who rented at EBTC. I absolutely love the area of Ft. Myers Beach, and specifically the well-maintained grounds and picturesque views found at Estero Beach & Tennis Club. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to own when a unit opened up here.

What makes this condo unique

Steps away from everything you could want on a vacation - beaches, ocean, pool, dining, golf, shopping, fishing, tennis, great weather,relaxing, unique wildlife!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We left you a great review, as we had a great time and lover your condo! I saw that our review came through being from "anonymous." Not sure why it didn't put our name like the others, but don't know if I can change that.

Thanks again,

Awesome property!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I had a great stay at this property. It was a small condo but perfect for our needs. Very clean and well-maintained! Central to restaurants, entertainment, and great shopping. Kelly was so nice to work with and answered every question. I would definitely recommend this unit. Loved the beach and the heated pool!!

Quiet, Warm Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

My buddy and I just did a 6 night stay at the Estero Beach and Tennis Club. Here was our typical day; if it sounds fun, you would also enjoy a stay here:

First we would catch some early rays of sunshine on the expansive lawn, located in-between the beach and the building. There are numerous pool chairs set out for lounging. My buddy and I called this area "The Leather Factory" because it is where you go if you want to get leathery tan.

The whole area felt super safe, so my buddy and I felt comfortable leaving our belongings at our chairs while we would go for a walk on the beach. The beach access is quite easy from the property and the beach is amazing. You can walk north or south along the beach. Walking north will take you to a more commercial area. Here, you can rent beach chairs (2 for $20), umbrellas, jet skis, or go parasailing. Salespeople are present but not at all pushy.

Down the beach only about a quarter mile, we found one of our favorite spots- Pinchers. Pinchers is a great restaurant that you can access from either the beach or street. They have great seafood, all day 2 for 1s on drinks, and great service. We also made sure to come here on Sunday afternoon because they have tons of TVs for watching football.

After walking the beach, we would usually head back to the Leather Factory for the prime sun tanning hours of the day. When we would get overheated, we would cool off in the pool.

Most days, we would grill out for lunch. The property has like 4-6 grills on site, and there was always availability on these. We ate burgers, kabobs, chicken, shrimp, and brats without having to miss a minute of sun.

The evenings were also fantastic. Right across the street from the property is Santini Plaza. This plaza has a CVS, gas station, as well as numerous restaurants. Pretty much anything you would need is right here. The best party about the plaza, however, is that there is a trolley stop here. For just 75 cents, you can travel Estero Blvd with ease. The Publix (grocery), is about 1.5 miles away and the trolley will take you right there.

The trolley will also take you to the Town Center. The best restaurants are located here-incredible seafood.

After a full day, the condo is a very nice place to come back to. The King sized bed is super comfy. However, the pull out bed is definitely subpar. You might want to seek other sleeping options. The TV has cable (no DVD, no HDMI).

Overall, an awesome trip! Thanks Kelly so much!

This is our second time staying at Kelly's place in Ft Myers Beach. She is a delight to work with and her property is awesome. So relaxing and a great place to stay when visiting all the exciting towns like Naples, Sanibel and Captiva and Bonita Springs. Great restaurants in the area and beautiful beaches. We will be back.

Wonderful unit

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this unit for approx 10 days, I found it very nice, enjoyable and everything as described. The only thing that was disappointing were the lack of cooking pots and pans. I am sure Kelli will correct this after my review. She was wonderful to deal with.
