About the property

best value rental property on fort myers beach

Premier location on white sand gulf beach; located in the less crowded southern third of Fort Myers Beach. This 6th floor south and west facing condo experiences both sunup and sunset. The unit was recently renovated with a new air conditioner, appliances, furniture, king size bed, wide screen TV and internet. The 3 building estero beach and tennis club is set back from estero boulevard, and is therefore very private and quiet, despite being at the hub of activity for the southern part of the island. It is directly located on the most beautiful white sand swimming and shelling beach on the island. There are 2 bird sanctuaries in estuaries a short walk north or south on the beach. The condo has a heated pool, tennis courts and outdoor grills, and parking. It is conveniently located walking distance from a 7/11, CVS, post office, a medical urgent care center, a bank, boat and kayak rentals, 6 restaurants, 2 bars, ice cream parlor, book and clothing shops; all a short walk across the street in Santini Marina Plaza. The condo is also very close to Lover's Key State Park and is serviced by the Island Trolley. This condo is the best value rental property in the estero beach and tennis club.

This condo was perfect for our vacation! Loved the location for the incredible beach, proximity to places to eat and phenomenal shelling. We're already planning our next trip!

Beautiful place.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The grounds are kept up beautifully. The pool is perfect. The temperature of the water was great. Our condo was very nice and clean. One thing I did find that was unusual, was the way to enter the beach. Thanks for a wonderful vacation. We definitely will stay there again!!!

Better than expected!!!

  • 5 of 5

The property is so much better than described. The price is great! The location is excellent. The beach is fairly private and very clean. The property is well-maintained and has security that does a great job. The amenities are great...a pool, several gas grills, outdoor showers, and very clean grounds. The condo itself exceeded expectations. The view is awesome. The bathroom is huge. The kitchen is very well-equipped. There is plenty of cabinet space. The owner provides many beach chairs, toys, umbrellas, anchors, etc. The owner was always very quick to respond to my emails, and provided thorough answers. Overall, one of the best vacations I've ever had. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Larry, we had a great time and your condo was wonderful. Nice, clean, not cluttered up like some others we've been in. It was everything we'd hoped for. You supplied everything we would have needed. Marion and her crew do a great job. Will call you again next year !
