About Keith & Karen Baumgartner

Keith and I have been married for 37 years and have lived in the western suburbs of Chicago our entire lives. We have been fortunate to travel extensively and love the beach, golf, fishing and sunshine!

Keith & Karen Baumgartner purchased this condo in 2013

Why Keith & Karen Baumgartner chose Fort Myers Beach

After searching up and down the Florida coasts for five years, we finally visited Fort Myers Beach and knew this was the place that fit us perfectly! We love the laid back atmosphere - no dressing up - just a swimsuit or shorts and we can go almost anywhere! And our adult children and grandchildren love it too! From restaurants and bars to the local ice cream shop....who could ask for more! In December, 2013 we were able to purchase the condo of our dreams - we hope you will enjoy our little piece of paradise as much as we do!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Extremely clean, beautifully decorated, very comfortable, great location, well stocked kitchen ~ just perfect! The Bay to Beach staff was extremely friendly and the unit seemed secure. We loved our experience and will definitely be back!

Look no further - Wonderful, well-maintained condo in great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Bay to Beach Resort in Aruba 2. You can tell the condo is well maintained and kept up to date. We stayed for 5 nights and wanted for nothing. We made almost all of our meals in the condo - very well stocked kitchen with everything you could possibly need. There's also two umbrellas and a couple coolers in the condo - perfect for relaxing at the beach. The on site amenities are great as well - pool, beach chairs, pool and beach toys - everything you could possibly need for a great family vacation. The location is great as well. Very short walk to the Times Square area and fishing pier. If you walk the opposite direction, you're guaranteed a quiet stroll in the sand on the way to Bowditch Point Park. We loved staying in Aruba 2 and look forward to staying again (maybe next year)!

Beautiful! Modern. Great view of the ocean. Loved everything about it.

  • 5 of 5

Loved that we could walk right out to the beach. Provided chairs, umbrellas, and towels. The beach area was clean with soft white sand. Quiet nights. Loved being able to walk to the pier and enjoy dinning just a few steps away from our condo. Staff was super sweet. We will definitely be back many more times!!

We just got back from our week long stay at the Bay to Beach Aruba 2 condo in Ft. Myers. The condo is amazing! It is just like the photos. The condo is very clean, beautifully decorated and stocked with towels, beach towels, dishes etc. My husband had his "best sleep ever!" The view is amazing. We loved watching the dolphins each morning from the Lanai! The kids (ages 11 and 9) had a great time playing at the private beach. We loved that the umbrellas, chairs, sand toys and boogie boards are available for use on site. It is a nice bonus to be able to parasail and rent wave runners within a few steps of the condo. The location is great. Just a few minutes walk to Time Square. This was our first time renting a condo and we are so glad we did. I highly recommend this condo to anyone considering renting on Ft. Myers Beach.

Highly recommend this property to everyone. The view was perfect and the condo was just as perfect. Loved the decorations and furniture. It was stocked with everything you could need. There were even hand weights for me to use to get my daily work out in. :) The beach towels, chairs and umbrellas were a huge bonus since we flew. Short walk to Times Square which we all loved. I had my son (12) Daughter and her friend (15) and they had a great time as well. Thanks for allowing us to use your vacation home.

My family and I loved our five days there. The condo is situated right on the beach and within walking distance to time square. Everything was clean and well-maintained. Could not have asked for a better experience. Love the beaches. Lots of things to do nearby. Can't wait to get back
