Overview

About the property

Welcome to paradise. Our condo was recently renovated with new kitchen, granite counters an two full baths for your enjoyment and comfort. Castle Beach condos are located directly on the beach, all with gulf views and no lagoon separating you from the beach. The complex is on the south end of Ft. Myers beach far enough away from the major tourist area to get peace and quiet, but only a trolley ride away from all the action. Just down the street at Lovers Key you can rent a kayak and view this beautiful sanctuary or rent jet skies and boats or windsurf and para-sail. Take long walks on the beach shelling or just relax and watch the aqua life of the gulf coast. Every amenity is available to you on Ft. Myers Beach and the vacation to remember awaits you. We are constantly looking for ways to improve your stay. This year we installed a new stove, king size mattress, new sheets and towels.

Amenities: Air conditioning, two TVs, cable, VCR, CD player, DVD player, tape player, phone, microwave, dishwasher, in home washer and dryer, utensils, linens, towels, screened lanai, covered - assigned covered parking

Not as relaxing as hoped

  • 2 of 5

Secluded- great!

Very long walk to the beach, thru the roped-off bird nesting ground- not so great.

It would be awesome if a wagon was available to renters to help haul everything down to the beach after experiencing the distance.

Beach- great (although not a fan of the super shelley sand. It's not sand you can just throw a towel over and layout. A chair (and beach shoes) are definitely needed)

Being surrounded by industrial-like barges all week (parked right in front of our beach view)- not so great

(Getting extra steps in to get to a decent beach area- great)

2 bedroom/2 bath (and washer/dryer) - great

2 hard beds and uncomfortable pillows - not great

Air conditioner going out over half of the trip - not great

Responsive owner and maintenance man to fix and flexibility to accommodate a shorter trip- great

Not exactly the restful, relaxing trip we were hoping for (knowing circumstances like the AC is unpredictable), as nobody would want to spend their time contacting the owner or maintenance man with problems during a vacation. John was responsive and worked with us to accommodate our troubles. Very appreciated.

Aside from the AC, the walk to the beach and the bedding accommodations weren't exactly the amenities we were hoping for.

Hidden fees. Not great. Will most likely be going with a resort next vacation.

Great stay!

  • 4 of 5

The condo and pool were great! The ocean was a bit further from the condo then we would have liked, but it was still a short walk down the sand to get next to it. Overall a great week at Castle Beach and would recommend it. Your on the less crowded end of the island which really made our vacation relaxing and we didn't have to fight over spots on the beach in the morning, but even though we were located on the far end we still were a short drive from the popular areas. We saw a lot of wildlife like certain birds, turtle nests, dolphins, etc right off the beach. Definitely a great stay! Thank you for allowing us!

Fun times!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. The condo was perfect for our family needs. We wished the walk to the beach was closer.

Definitely needs redo

Owner's Response: we were quite surprised by your review. We have reached out to you to see what you found was shabby about our beautiful condo without a response. In just the last 18 months we have replaced the mattresses, stove, washer/dryer, bedspreads, pillows, linens and towels and pots and pans. your complaint about the TV is the first we have heard. It is a high def TV and have centurylink cable. It is true the beach is not at the condo's edge, but is does provide a great view of the water, and makes it quiet on the porch with great privacy. The waters edge is an easy walk of a few minutes on fantastic white sand. We ask prospective renters to reads all the reviews to get the whole picture.

Nice stay

  • 4 of 5

The condo was quite a walking distance to the water and there were no beach chairs to take out there. Plus you really needed a little wagon or something to haul all your stuff to the water.The condo was nice but needs some updating. Brighter colors in it would make a big difference. I was hoping for a more beachy feeling.

Beautiful views and a lovely condo

  • 4 of 5

This property is very nice. The owner was easy to work with and did well with stocking it! I would love to see new mattresses or foam toppers but other than it was perfect!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed our condo. I'm sorry you weren't completely satisfied with the mattresses. However they were replaced in December of 2015. I have found it is very hard to satisfy everyone with the mattress selection as some people like firm and others softer.
