About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

Beautiful pool and bay views from the balcony of this third story Condo in a quiet beach community. Watch wildlife from the lanai such as gators, egrets, and herons. The building boasts elevator access, tennis courts and pool as well as a minute's walk to a breathtaking beach! This portion of Estero Island's beach is the widest and softest in southwest Florida!

Beach activities usually include volleyball and live music from nearby venues with canopied chairs and jet-ski rentals available. Boating, fishing, new release dinner-movie theater, shopping plaza, and restaurants are all within a few minutes walk of the front door.

The Condo is located just a block from Santini Plaza and Fish-Tale Marina, near the southern end of the island, a more quiet end away from the heavy traffic of the bridge and downtown area. A trolley will pick you up to take you for the short ride to Times Square, downtown Fort Myers Beach, to stroll and fish the lengthy pier or have a night out at a huge variety of shops, bars, and restaurants with music venues.

Island activities abound with parasailing, pontoon boat charters for the afternoon, boat tours to Key West, fishing charters, and a State Park within walking distance! A pharmacy & medical Center are very close.

The international airport is only about a 30 minute drive with available taxi, shuttle and limousine services available.

The Condo itself is open and spacious with wall to wall sliding windows out to a screened lanai. The master suite has walk-in closet, king-size bed with luxury pillow mattress,cable TV, sliding doors to lanai, double vanity, extra-large shower, and luxurious linens. The guest bedroom boasts a queen-size bed with adjoining bathroom and cable TV/DVD player in the bedroom as well as pool views. A fully equipped kitchen for the gourmet cook extends to a dining area with a pool view.

Newly renovated kitchen and bathrooms in 2016.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We want to thank you for renting the condo to us. It was perfect in all ways - very close to a great beach, comfortable quarters, and a lovely view of lots of bird life flying into the canal. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the island very much. Thank you again.

Fantastic location. Bright, clean and well equipped condo. Loved sitting on screened porch overlooking canal at breakfast and lunch. Easy walk to several restaurants. Fish Tale Restaurant became our favorite.

Great Location/Great Beach

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned from 2 weeks of fantastic weather, a great beach and quality golfing. The condo was just as described and you would never know you were minutes away from a great beach when sitting out on the lanai looking out at the back bay/ preserve.There was a minor issue with the second bathroom but the owner contacted us on our arrival and had it looked after at our convenience not disrupting our plans at all. Restaurants and bars are all nearby,regardless if you walk or take the trolley and we were not disappointed with any of our choices. There are numerous golf courses all within a half hours drive if you like to play, if not just go walk or sit on the beach all day. We would definitely go back to Captain's Bay and stay at this condo in the future.

Captains Bay South Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved the condo. Very quiet, clean and relaxing yet right in the middle of everything. Short walk to the beautiful beach, restaurants and pharmacy. Easy drive to the grocery store, spring baseball and airport. The owner was easy to work with and prompt on returning emails and deposit money. One of our best vacations ever!!! Would recommend to anyone wanting to visit SW Florida.

A Perfect Month!

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed in Florida for many years, and this was by far one of the nices condos we've rented. It's immaculate, airy, and bright, with plenty of "move around" room. Since we enjoy cooking (even on vacation) we appreciated the well equipped kitchen. Cookware is up to date, and the dinnerware & glassware were very nice.

The Lanai is a great place to have morning coffee, while watching the wildlife in the Mangroves. There's even a private little porch overlooking the pool area, where one might sit and read or relax.

The beautiful beach is a very short walk away, and even shopping is within walking distance. The central location on the Island, made it easy to take many side trips without encountering a lot of traffic. We had a marvelous month, and we're looking forward to next year's visit.
