Super Stay in the Sunshine State

  • 5 of 5

I spent 5 glorious weeks in Florida this Summer!! It's been on my bucket list for years to visit, and this condo was a great home base from which to explore. It was a convenient distance to any place on Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel Island, Naples, Bonita Springs, and more. I even traveled up to Orlando for a few days, and also drove all the way to Key West.

From the moment I arrived, it felt like a home away from home. It's super clean, updated nicely (I was the first to use the updated appliances!), and located in a very nice area with a beautiful view of the bay. The kitchen has everything you would need for cooking meals, which was convenient, since I ate 99% of my meals at the condo. Great air conditioning (which was needed in those hot summer months!), good water pressure in the shower, and a brand new King-sized bed made the stay cozy and comfortable!

I didn't watch a ton of TV, but arrived when the last show of the season (Game of Thrones fan) was on and I would've been really bummed to miss it. Well, this condo had full cable, and HBO. So, on those rainy afternoons or when winding down in the evenings, you have a wide variety of entertainment choices.

In the Summer, most owners are away, so it was quiet, never crowded or loud at the pool, and the grills were always available for barbequing. The few residents there year round were very friendly and kind, giving great advice as needed.

I ate out a few times at the top rated restaurants on Trip Advisor, so check that out before going. The number one rated Lehne's Burger is number one for a reason!

It was wonderful to sit on the patio each morning and evening and watch the dolphins in the water. They came almost daily! Sometimes, they were arm's length from the seawall and I was giddy as a kid watching them!

Don't miss Lover's Key State Park, which is just a few miles down the road. Beautiful, well-maintained park and a gorgeous beach.

I highly recommend this property! One of the best in all my years of traveling!

windward Pointe codo VRBO

  • 4 of 5

Just finished a one month stay at Windward Pointe Condo on FT Myers Beach The view was impressive and relaxing I found the complex to be quiet and peaceful The unit itself was comfortable and tastefully furnished. The owners were professional and cordial answering any questions I had in a prompt timely manner. Another benefit is within walking distance there are restaurants and shopping as well as beaches I recommend anyone wanting to get away that you consider your stay to be at Windward Pointe VRBO

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Your place is lovely. The view is spectacular.

We'll definitely be back.

The people here are great as well, especially Ann and Bob. The weather was excellent. Just one evening it rained after supper, around 7 but were headed out to the movies anyway. Therefore, it was good timing. Otherwise, one day was a replica of the next day. Couldn't have expected any more.

Thanks again for giving us the opportunity to stay in very clean and comfortable surroundings. It was nice to leave the entrance door opened and feel safe in doing so. The cross breeze was wonderful.

An amazing one month stay in Fort Myers Beach

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The accommodations were lovely. The view was spectacular. We'll definitely be back. The people were great as well, especially our next door neighbours. The weather was excellent. Just one evening it rained after supper, around 7:00 p.m. but we were headed out to the movies anyway. Therefore, it was good timing. Otherwise, one day was a replica of the next day. Couldn't have expected more. Thanks again for giving us the opportunity to stay in very clean and comfortable surroundings.

Restored our souls!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed two wonderful months here. Rarely a day without views of dolphin!

. Entering the condo the first time you are impressed by the sense of a calm retreat. The condo has been updated nicely. Art and decorative pieces so appropriate. A well equipped kitchen...we chose to eat in often as we enjoyed relaxing on the lanai. However there are endless restaurants very near. Such a comfortable bed, extra linens and towels.

. The association's pool was wonderful. Nicely heated for comfort, even in the morning. The people were so gracious.. We felt as if we had been there for years.

. You are just a quick walk to the beach, the Trolley stops closely if you like to head to restaurants and entertainment.

. A great time..we would highly recommend.Our thanks to the Nelsons..such great owners to work with.u

Would Definitely Come Back! Loved It.

  • 5 of 5

I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone of my friends. The view from the balcony and the living area was spectacular, while the condo itself is inviting, beautifully kept and decorated. It feels spacious for a one bedroom making it comfortable to have guests for overnight, with the use of the pullout couch. Pool side grills are convenient and it's great to have the option of eating poolside while looking out to the marina and the bay.

We enjoyed a sunset cruise (highly recommend), walked on sandy beaches, watched the most gorgeous sunsets and went to great restaurants in the neighborhood. Return visit for me is a must!
