About Jim & Marilyn Horton

We both grew up in Connecticut and still reside there. The land of steady habits! :-) We attended college in Connecticut as well and both spent our entire careers in public school education. We are now retired which allows us to spend more time on beautiful Ft. Myers Beach.

Jim & Marilyn Horton purchased this condo in 1992

Why Jim & Marilyn Horton chose Fort Myers Beach

We first visited Ft. Myers Beach in 1991 and immediately fell in love with the beautiful white sandy beach and community. Something really 'spoke' to us on our first trip. The following year we purchased our Voted 'Best Condominium on the Beach' condo and have traveled to Ft. Myers Beach every year since!!

What makes this condo unique

Our first priority in purchasing a home on Ft. Myers Beach was that it had to be direct Gulf front and offer wonderful views of the Gulf of Mexico. We were very fortunate to find both of these qualities in our condo. In addition, we loved the interior design and floor plan. We insisted on a 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit because we wanted to have adequate space for family and friends to visit us. We love our condo and have never once regretted purchasing it. We still marvel at the spectacular views that we get from our lanai, master bedroom, living room, dining room and kitchen!

A wonderful stay

  • 4 of 5

A very well equipped Condo with an unbeatable view over the Golf. The property is well maintained and the owners are helpful in any way. The two maintenance men are very kind and helpful whenever we had a little problem. In our opinion the Condo would need re-furbishing but all in all it is absolutely worth coming back.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed the spectacular views from our gulf-front condo. We are very proud of the meticulous maintenance of our property both inside and out. It is wonderful to hear that our on site maintenance men were so kind and helpful. We understand that everyone has different tastes in furnishings. We strive to provide a Florida beach feel and that is why three years ago we completely renovated our condo to include new kitchen cabinets with quartz countertops, installed porcelain tile throughout the unit and replaced all of the doors including the sliders to the lanai and repainted the unit. It is gratifying to hear that our guests think that it is absolutely worth coming back.

Fantastic Condo!

  • 5 of 5

After 6 years staying on the Atlantic side, my family and I decided to try the Gulf side. This is a fantastic condo. The unit is very comfortable, updated, and spacious enough for a family. The buildings and grounds are so well kept that I can't imagine what these owners pay in HOA fees. The proximity to the beach is really closer than the pictures show. There are dozens of chairs and chaises that the Association provides that can only be used on the lawn facing the Gulf then you have a very short walk to the water so you don't really need to bring chairs at all. There are plenty of chairs in the condo to carry down to the beach for you to use.

The laundry facilities are very clean and there are several washers and dryers. There is a minimal fee for the machines. Outside of the laundry room (which sits between the 2 buildings) is a little hut with 4 gas grills, counter seating and 2 tables that faces the Gulf. A fantastic breeze blows through here.

The pool is in front of the laundry room on the street side of the building and it is enclosed by a privacy fence. Many chaise lounges and 4 tables w/ umbrellas surround the large rectangular pool. 3 1/2' - 6 1/2' is the depth with no lifeguard but the condo office is right there facing the pool.

I saved the best for last, the owners. Jim and Marilyn are very gracious hosts. I was treated so well all during the process. The first conversation answered all of my questions. A couple emails after that got me through the rental process. And when I arrived home, a thank you letter was waiting for me. First Class!

If my family's travels take us to Fort Myers Beach again, we will definitely stay here again.

Our tropical paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two teenage children & I stay here every summer for two weeks! We have all grown to think of it as our home away from home! The owners are extremely nice & are very easy to deal with! The unit is exactly as they describe: updated, clean & it provides all the amenities to make your stay as comfortable as possible! The views from the private lanai are spectacular! The location on the island is close enough for shopping but just far enough from the hustle & bustle of downtown! Our kids especially enjoy swimming in the pool with friends, which is clean & well maintained while I spend long lazy days on the beach sitting under my favorite tiki hut and great BBQ dinners with sunset views for those nights spent in! I recommend this unit to anyone/family who is looking for a tropical paradise vacation with all the amenities of home!!! We are already counting down the days until our return trip next year!! Thanks Jim & Marilyn!!! For sharing your home with us!!!

Bootsie and the Girl's "AGAIN!"

  • 5 of 5

Just want to tell all you readers that if you are trying to decide if you want to visit this luxury condo......."think no more!" It has everything you could possibly want or need. It is very clean, up to date with all the latest technologies from kitchen appliances to flat screen TV's(3 of them), fans throughout the condo plus decorated very comfortably. We just spent our 4th time here and, we hope, there is #5 in 2013. Once you arrive it is great not to have to worry about anything. If something should happen to need attention, there is a maintenance man available to fix whatever the problem might be. The management is informed so as able to answer any of your questions and the property has many amenities which you can enjoy. It is so comforting just to sit on your balcony, listen to and watch the dolphins playing in the ocean, a parasailer sailing by your window, lover's on the beach of all ages or kids just building sand castles. Its a great get-away and "Bootsie and the Girls" give it ***** Five Stars. Oh yes, the owners, Jim and Marilyn are fun-loving people and great to deal with. If in doubt, look at how booked they are..........that really puts things in perspective as to how nice a "hideaway" and "vacation spot" Horton's Paradise Beachfront Condo really is.
