About Dave Arend

My Wife and I were born and raised in Northern Ohio. We vacationed all over Florida until we settled in Fort Myers Beach. We rented for several years before we purchased at Estero Beach Club. We are both retired and have loved our time we spend at the condo. Since we have 4 children and 7 grandchildren in Ohio we still spend the majority of our time in Ohio and decided to rent our place when not using it ourselves. We have really enjoyed getting to know the many guest we have had at our condo. Many return every year and feel as if it is their home away from home also.

Dave Arend purchased this condo in 2013

Great, value for money, relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived 2 weeks after Irma left and were assured by the property owners that our vacation would not be disrupted. They were correct! There was minor palm tree brush to be collected and that is it.

The main photograph shows an idyllic beach view and you will not be disappointed! Our apartment was on the 5th floor, and the view over the pool to the sea was even better!

The apartment itself has been remodeled with high end finishes in the kitchen and hall bathroom. It truly is a 'home from home', so if you need to take a break from the sun, you will be very comfortable.

The apartment complex is well maintained with friendly inhabitants. It seems that many return year after year and I can see why. An outstanding feature of this complex is that you can leave the beach, go straight to the pool and still be close to the sea. Many other complexes have their pools at the side or rear of the building with no sea view.

September is 'off season' so Fort Myers Beach seemed deserted. Good for us as we felt like we had the beach to ourselves. The beach itself is deep with white sand and no litter, or seaweed deposits.

FMB is definitely a hidden gem. Many people start their search at Sanibel Island because it's well known and stumble, like we did, on FMB. We will definitely return to FMB and this apartment!

Great condo equipped with all you will need!

  • 5 of 5

This 5th floor unit was nicely decorated, updated and well equipped with everything for our 4 person group. Easy entry access, luggage cart and elevator. Grounds were immaculate and people very friendly. As well as helpful. Close enough to busy north end of FMB to walk but not too close (quiet). Nice pool and beach. Highly recommend and would rent again!

Excellent locaton Excellent accommadations

  • 5 of 5

Views are amazing and the location is perfect. With the grocery store across the street and restaurants within walking distance there is no need for a car. The kitchen had updated appliances and the living areas were very clean and comfortable. We loved the balcony views and the pool area. If your looking for an easy vacation this is the spot!

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

I was very pleased that this wasn’t your typical vacation rental.. It has been renovated, and has all the luxuries of home plus more..The king size bed slept great.. The weather was so nice that we didn’t even have to use air much at all.. so having the sliding glass doors open to hear the waves as we slept was a definite plus. The view of an occasional sailboat from the condo and evening sunsets from either the pool or beach down below was beyond perfect. They blow a horn every night right after the sun would set.. Several guests or residents would come for this late afternoon event.. and bring their evening glass of wine or beverage to watch the sunset.. Seemed like we had the best location to be able to watch the beach just beyond the pool. Dave was also very helpful on restaurant suggestions and things to do..but there was a book there that listed all their favorite restaurants within walking distance, shopping, etc. We hated to leave, and I look forward to going back. Best vacation rental experience thus far.

Unit #54 is beautifully decorated with many amenities. Upscale, beachy decor. Thanks Dave for sharing! Spent a lot of time out on the open-air lanai listening to the waves and enjoying the awesome view. Enjoyed many beautiful sunsets from the beach below. FMB has powder white sand that never gets hot and the best shells! The owner, manager, and cleaning crew were great. Full kitchen if you want to cook and Topps grocery store right across the street. Many restaurants and bars within walking distance as well as Times Square. If you want to ride or it's raining, call Uber. We had GREAT drivers when we visited - very personable! Cinnamon rolls at the Heavenly Biscuit are a must but call ahead to avoid long lines. Also recommend Doc Ford's Rum Bar - had our best dinner there. Would highly recommend this condo and definitely stay again if in FMB !
