About the property

Great direct gulf views!!! WiFi in unit. Remodeled kitchen and Bathroom with walk in shower. We also have HDTV and DVD Player with a nice selection of movies.

The Kitchen is fully-equipped with dishwasher and disposal al all pots and pans, dishes and other kitchen utensils. Towels/linens are provided (see amenities below) including beach towels! We also have beach chairs, beach umbrella, bocci balls and cooler for the beach. There is a large heated pool with luxurious sun deck and a lovely grassy area for additional crowd-free sunning or sports activities. Access to the beach is only a few steps after you exit the building.

We rent Saturday to Saturday except for July, Aug and Sept. Also, our condominium association requires a minimum of 7 days rental.

Restaurants, medical care, CVS drug store, marina, kayak rental are just across the street. There is also a 7-11 easy walking distance. The beach trolley is only 50 cents (25 cents senior citizens) and will take you from one end of the beach to the other and to Lovers Key park several miles down the road. There are two Supermarkets on the island. There is a Catholic Church & several Protestant Churches on the island.

Enjoy four, well manicured (Har-Tru's ) tennis courts on property at this prestigious private Beach and Tennis Club. Cook out on the free gas grills on the deck in the bottom floor of our building. From your balcony, view many species of colorful birds to see such as pelicans, egrets, osprey, and herons as well as dolphins swimming in the surf.

NOTE: Please notice the difference between the views of our unit and some of the other units also advertised in VRBO. You don't have to look sideways to have water views.

Take early morning, afternoon, or sunset walks on the pure white sugar powder sand of this most beautiful beach. Stop in one of the many varied beachfront restaurants all along the boulevard. Enjoy dining or cocktails on their gulfside decks overlooking the beach. Beach sunsets are too beautiful to describe!

There is something for everyone. Hunt shells on the beach, play golf or tennis, swim in the Gulf of Mexico, or just 'veg out' at the huge heated pool. One of our favorite things to do is to enjoy breakfast, lunch, or dinner on the covered balcony just taking in the gorgeous beach sights and sunsets.The Wyndham Gardens Hotel is just a short 4-5 minute walk up the beach behind the condo. Their Pinchers Grill is a great outdoor Tiki Bar which serves beer, mixed drinks and food. They often offer live entertainment. There are also a number of good restaurants and bars right across the street in Santini Plaza as well.

The unit was everything as advertised. It was beautiful, clean and had everything that we needed.

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with condo from moment we stepped through the door. The unit was spacious for two people. The king size bed was comfortable. The kichen was equipped with everything we needed. Loved the cabinets and fixtures. All we had to do was unpack and enjoy. It was quite and so relaxing. The view was breathtaking. I couldn't get enough of the water waves and sounds. We spent much of our time sitting on the lani when we weren't at the beach. Unfortunately we did not see any dolphins. The sea shells were amazing finding a few to bring home. The pool was warm and inviting the way I love it and the people were friendly. Checking in and out was seamless. I loved not worrying about carrying or loosing keys. The building was secure and safe. The owners also were very prompt in returning our deposit.

This was our first visit to Estero Beach/Fort Myer area and we loved it. It was quite with less tourists compared to other places we've stayed previously. There is a strip mall nearby where we ate a few times and the food was delicious. Otherwise we drove to the store for groceries and explored the area. We recommend Love Boat for homemade ice cream. It was the best. Always crowded but worth the wait. We will definitely be back next May. Thanks again for sharing your vacation home!

Great place to rent.

  • 5 of 5

The condo is clean and well equipped with everything we needed. Mike was great! Unfortunately we were there right after Hurricane Irma but it still worked out as best as could be. Definitely a good condo choice.

Location, location, location

  • 4 of 5

The location of this unit is great for gulf view & cool breezes. Very hospitable host--we found the cupboard & frig full of items; we've rented condos all over & often we don't even get salt. We left our contributions behind, including a salt & pepper shaker for the table. Location close to Sanibel/Captiva Island, Lover's Key, Naples & Marco Island. Host treated us well & fair when we mentioned beach dredging was noisy. Beach recently widened--big plus!! Great for long walks/jogs. WiFi works well, good number of TV HD channels but TV not HD. Dated decor & bed sags which bothered my back & sofa looks tired. Great kitchen!! Would love, love to return if bed & sofa replaced which would give this unit 5 stars!

Owner's Response: We appreciate your positive comments. We do have HD. The instructions are in the renters instruction book. We are local and readily available for assistance with any issue. Other renters have indicated that they enjoyed our beachy decor and commented that they liked our sofa and the comfort of the bed. It was purchased four years ago and accommodates the firmness preferences of most people.

Incredible experience!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I wish we could give more than 5 stars!

Everything about this property is amazing. It is immaculately clean and bright with breathtaking views of the gulf! The grounds of the complex are gorgeous and meticulously maintained. The beach is beautiful and natural and just a few steps away. There is a fun tiki bar about a half mile walk up the beach through the beautiful mangroves. The location is perfect, not too close to the busy, more populated areas but not too far either. The main shopping area is easily accessible on the inexpensive trolley. There is also a plaza just across the street with great restaurants, a CVS, shopping, etc. which was very convenient.

Mike and Suzanne are great...very available and on top of the communication. Every aspect of our vacation was perfect. We wouldn't change a thing and we will definitely be back!!!!
