About Debra and Jeff Carpenter

I am a native Floridian having lived in Ft Myers for 50 years. Have relocated to Sautee Nacoochee Georgia but come to Florida often for business, friends and relatives. I have always loved the downtown area. My husband and I began remodeling homes in downtown Ft Myers starting with the home that now is known as the Wisteria Tea Room on the corner of Hough and Second Street. I have worked in resort property management for 25 years and am employed with RAL Resort Property Management.

Debra and Jeff Carpenter purchased this condo in 2016

Why Debra and Jeff Carpenter chose River District

I love the Mediterranean feel of this property and the pristine manner in which it is kept. Although this area is very safe I enjoy the comfort of a secured building and parking area. Love being in close proximity to fine dining and unique shopping. My daughter was married at the Veranda downtown so I have a long history and love for this area.

The condo is beautiful and the location great. Even before I arrived, I was so impressed with Debra, the owner of the condo. It was my first experience renting a condo for 30 days. Usually my visits have been for just a week. I, therefore, emailed Debra a couple of times with questions. She always responded promptly. The pictures did not do justice to the condo, which exceeded my expectations. When I entered, it was immediately apparent that every detail had been taken care of, including soothing music. The condo was immaculate and the decor was outstanding. There were plenty of supplies, toiletries, towels, bar soap, paper towels and a fully equipped kitchen, including a Keurig coffee maker. There are two master suites and it was almost hard to decide which one to claim, as they both have king size beds and full bathrooms. I had 3 visitors there at separate times and everyone, including myself, thought the mattresses were so comfortable. The balcony was big and private. The pictures don't show a full view of it. The pool was clean and the view of the river was fantastic. The gym was clean and well equipped. Maria the custodian was very helpful, if I had any questions, along with the office staff. A trolley stops in front of the condo and offers free rides to the downtown historic area where there are shops and a number of restaurants. There's a nice walkway that borders the river in that area. The drive to Sanibel Island and Fort Meyers Beach was an easy drive, but there were days that I just enjoyed being by the pool. I think the river view made it easier to sometimes skip the beach. While I was there, I spoke with Debra a couple of times. She spent time telling me about some things to do in the area, which was very helpful. I highly recommend renting from Debra. I almost want to keep this place a secret, but that wouldn't be fair. Thanks Debra!

Fabulous Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding! Perfection! This condo was both of these and more. The pictures do not do it justice. Debra was great to work with. Condo management was also wonderful. The property was immaculately maintained. Well stocked kitchen for all of your cooking needs. We highly recommend this unit and would love to come back again.

This is a lovely condo with excellent amenities! The pool and hot tub are clean with a wonderful tropical feel overlooking the river. Free trolley service to downtown with pick-up/drop off in front of condo. The unit is beautifully decorated, including comfortable king size beds and a fully stocked kitchen and washer/dryer. The complex is very secure with locked entrances and a very quiet atmosphere!

This condo is absolutely beautiful. Love the large balcony for sunset watching and morning coffee. Beds are so cozy and the huge tub was great after a day of cycling. Also enjoyed the pool and spa area. We will be back!
