Grant and I bought our condo in September 2011 after we had vacationed in Ft. Myers Beach in March 2011 over our sons Spring break.

Nice and Convenient Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Ft Myers for several years, but this was our first time renting a condo. We enjoyed the convenience of being able to fix a meal in the condo and a full size refrigerator to put soda, eggs, milk, salsa, and so on. The California king sized bed was extremely comfortable. Keyless entry was nice, so we didn't have to worry about losing a key.

Though the unit is not on the ocean side, that can actually be a plus as we enjoyed sitting out on the balcony in the afternoon/evening when it was in the shade. Also liked that the unit was at the very end of the hallway, which made it feel more private and out of the way. We barely heard anyone else in the hallway on our floor the week we were there and never actually saw anyone else on our floor. We met lots of nice vacationers in the elevator and around the complex. We never felt unsafe there, and we often saw the friendly security guy making his rounds in the parking lot.

Santini Plaza across the street is a really nice plaza for shopping and there are plenty of eating choices there and even a small post office should you need to mail something. We really enjoyed the $6 footlong deal at Francesco's. Publix grocery store is also a short drive away.

One of our main reasons for visiting the area is to go shelling, and we were very pleasantly surprised at how many shells we found at the beach right outside the condo. It was covered in fighting conchs the night we arrived, and we found a variety of other shells throughout the week. We even got to see some cool creatures such as seastars, live sand dollars, and sea urchins, but we left them all in their place. Our second day there, we got to see several Roseate Spoonbill birds in the wildlife area to the right as you come onto the beach. I didn't expect to ever get to see any up close, but we got some good pictures.

Overall, a very nice place to stay for the price. Thanks to Kelly and Grant for allowing us to stay there.

Had nearly everything we required.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this condo. We have stayed in Fort Myers several times and when we return we would like to return to this property.

It had nearly everything we required, even the TV channel which showed the English PL.

The only thing that was missing was a kettle. You know how us English like our tea...

Thanks Kelly hope to stay again. Steve

Very nice condo.

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed my week in Kelly Riebel's condo. It was well appointed and I liked the decor. The floor could have been cleaner when I first got there but other than that it was great.

However, I wish there was a system wherein if a renter wants to rent the same time next year that they would have the right of first refusal like lots of vacation rental units around the country, including a condo I own and rent out in northern Michigan. I know I inquired about renting it for the same time in March, 2018 while I was still there (3/4 to 3/11/17) it was told by Ms. Riebel that it was already rented for that time (3/3 to3/10/18).

Owner's Response: Hi Dan, Thank you for the great review even though I can hear some frustration about not being able to get your same time slot in 2018, For monthly renters I save them their same rental time the following year. the majority of weekly renters do not come back yearly so it is hard to keep track of eveyone. I get multiple inquiries a day in high season and find it very hard to keep telling people no to save 1 week , I would have to keep everything booked out in VRBO to stop the daily inquiries. I'm very sorry and will contact you if something changes and/ or if we purchase another condo . Thanks, Kelly Ps. I do try to reach out to my guests that are currently staying a week but it doesn't always happen. In your case I had to shuffle a monthly renter around.Sorry. Thanks, Kelly
