Why Richard Rowe & Denise Chambre chose Ft Myers Beach

Vacation Villas is a well-sought after condo at the quiet north end of the Beach, so directly on the beach overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Easier access on and off the Fort Myers Beach. Less than 1 mile to the Pier, entertainment, restaurants and shops. The Condominium has attentive management that keeps the building and grounds to a high standard. Private parking spaces. This is vacation rental at its best. No stress; Just lie back and enjoy the sun, sand , sea and beautiful sunsets. Ultimately this is where we will retire, so that we can relax in the little spot of paradise - but not just yet!!!!

What makes this condo unique

You can not get any closer to the beach and the sea. Just down the stairs or elevator and step out on to the beach. This is Florida vacation at its best - warm sun, warm water, soft sand, easy access to restaurants and other facilities. Just lie back and relax.

We want the condo to meet all your needs from towels and bedding, to washer & dryer, microwave and fully equipped kitchen; plus wifi for social, business and to play.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was a great find. Condo was great. Location, close enough to everything, but being at the end of the strip, next to the park, made it very quiet. Great pool! Nice beach. Very nice owners. Willing to listen and respond to your needs. Would stay here again. Thanks Richard.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

The condo is exactly as advertised. If you are looking for a condo that sits right on the beach, where you can spend the day soaking up the sun on a quiet beach and then walk to town for dinner and drinks of an evening, you will not be disappointed! There is also a large complex a couple of doors down where you can rent beach chairs, umbrellas, wave runners, etc. The kitchen is well stocked if you prefer to stay in and cook. Two bedrooms and a pull out couch provides plenty of sleeping room for a family. You also get an unobstructed view of the sunset every day while sitting on the lanai!

Beautiful Condo and Amazing View

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our stay at Vacation Villas. The condo was well kept, up-to-date and has a nice layout. We were VERY pleased to have a washer/dryer in the unit. The owner (s) were very easy to work with and very responsive. We've recommended it to several people who were looking for a place to rent.

Spacious condo with everything you need for a vacation minus food and swimsuits.

  • 5 of 5

This condo was very well kept and felt comfortable the moment we walked through the door. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils, pots and pans ect.. Plenty of blankets and towels.

Beach chairs, pool noodles, boogie boards ect... were on our porch waiting to be used.

The large condo pool was salt water and so clean and impressive.

Washing machine in the unit was a definite plus. The building is right on the beach with sunset views over Sanibel Island. The dolphins were plentiful every day. Sunset and low tide exposed tons of star fish, sand dollars, sea urchins and anemones. Very fun to see these creatures still alive instead of sitting on a shelf in a store.

Fort Myers beach has been our go to moms getaway for 10 plus years.

Amazing Condo

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home from a wonderful week in FMB. Vacation Villas Unit 131 was perfect for our family of 4. The condo was exactly as described, the owners supplied everything we needed.....bedding, towels, housewares, beach towels, chairs, umbrella and even a pail for shell collecting. The location could not have been more perfect, on the quiet North end & convenient walk to Times Square, where we enjoyed dinner, shopping, street theatre and music....lots of family entertainment. My two teenagers tried a new water sport, stand-up paddling right next door, great fun. Thank you Richard and Denise for helping to make this a memorable vacation !
