Why Richard Rowe & Denise Chambre chose Florida South West

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.

Vacation Villas unit 131 - Luxury 2 bed/2 beach front condo on Fort Myers Beach
average rating of 4.8 based on 26 reviews

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 !

Although we did rent some beach chairs, we also used the ones left on the balcony & our Grandson used the beach toys. The view was gorgeous. The pool & grill were nice anemities also. We would definitely stay again.

Villa 131

  • 4 of 5

Some good some bad

Coffee pot leaked

Oven could use some cleaning

I had to pull out the bed alittle to plug my phone in,and that could really use some cleaning a lot of dust and dirt behind the bed.

They had painters there the week we were there kinda would be nice to know that we would have picked a different week.

On a good note otherwise clean,quite area

Nice pool

The path to the beach could be trimmed a bit

Owner's Response: Thank you for your 4-star review. Sorry about the external building painting; this happens about once every 10 years and is outside my control; I was given 2-days notice of their need to paint the corridor outside my condo. I have checked the coffee pot and it seems to be working as confirmed by recent guests; so not sure what happened there. I also have a very good cleaning team, so I will pass on your feedback. Thank you.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was excellent for our stay! It was very spacious and had everything we needed for our stay there. Perfect location! It was very helpful that there was a washer and dryer in the unit. I would recommend this unit to anyone who was considering a vacation there and I would definitely rent this unit again if we return to fort myers beach!
