About Wayne Longino

My wife and I love our Fort Myers Beach vacation home and welcome you to share it. The abundant wildlife, climate, the Gulf of Mexico, superb eateries, and the friendly people, make this area of Southwest Florida a vacation paradise. We began coming to the area over 30 years ago. Before buying this vacation home, we visited several of the islands in the Caribbean. Our last trip in 2000, to British Tortola convinced us to invest our money in our vacation home. Come and explore this area and I am sure you will agree with us. Warmest regards, Wayne and Elise Longino

Wayne Longino purchased this condo in 2000

Why Wayne Longino chose Fort Myers Beach

This area of Southwest Florida has abundant wildlife and unspoiled beaches. Our beach-front is habitat for nesting turtles, birds, and other wildlife. The State of Florida has declared the beach area in front, one of 18 Critical Wildlife Areas (CWA), located in the state. The Audubon Society has declared our beach-front as “Little Estero Island”. Cars are not allowed to drive on the beach and all boat traffic must stay offshore at least 500 feet. Enjoy an unspoiled beach that is a private area.

What makes this condo unique

The shelling here is world-class. Since the ocean floor of the Gulf is gradually sloping, shells wash ashore with each tidal change. You will find many hand-made shell treasures in our vacation home made by Elise, an avid conchologist (collector of shells). There are a diverse array of mollusks, bivalve, and gastropods, for the avid conchologist. In addition, there are many books to help you identify shells and how to clean and preserve them. Take a walk along our beach and you may be able to find your own “diamond in the rough”.

The view of the Gulf from the lanai/porch is spectacular. Abundant wildlife, the gentle wave action of the Gulf can be heard inside the condominium.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great communication throughout with Wayne. Condo is a great value with location on the south end of estero, nice and quiet with beach almost all to ourselves while there. Bring just food and clothes is accurate as the place is well stocked, pool is nice and close to beach. Rec. goodtime charters for the dolphin, manatee cruise as well as Fish House for good seafood, also the restaurant's outdoor deck behind holiday inn was nice with live music while watching the sunset. Condo truly faces the gulf and morning coffee on the balcony is a daily must-do. Thanks Wayne, we'll be booking with you again.

Great time on Fort Myers beach

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were at the condominium two weeks ago (April 4 to 11, 2015) and it was awesome. One of our best vacations. Everything was exactly as advertised - the view was wonderful, the proximity to the beach was incredible, the weather was stellar (90 degrees and sunshine every day) and the amenities in the unit were excellent. The beach chairs and umbrellas were also greatly appreciated. All in all, we had a great time and can’t wait to get back. The owner was also very easy to work with - very helpful and responsive. We highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Thanks Steve for sharing your thoughts about the condominium. We make sure you have everything for a great stay. Folding beach chairs with built in coolers, an umbrella, cooler, and beach towels are provided. An ice maker, in the refrigerator, ensures you have plenty of ice for the beach. With the Wyndham Garden Hotel, located about 1/4 mile north charging around $600 per night, the high season rate, for an Oceanview King Room with a king size bed and view of the Gulf, the condominium is a real value for your stay at the beach.

A special time in the sun!

  • 5 of 5

I loved the view of this condo! I could watch the dolphins, see the beach, and hear the rustle of the palm trees in the morning with coffee on the balcony. The location couldn't be better! The beach is just yards away, there is a heated pool and many restaurants just across the street. The condo was comfortable and had everything I needed from WiFi, wide screen TV, dishwasher, and kitchen with everything I needed if I wanted to cook. Of course, I would rather walk the beach or watch the wonderful sunsets from the balcony.

I have booked already for next year. I found the whole setting to be refreshing and relaxing. Thanks, Wayne and Elise, for the use of your condo and outstanding view.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us and sharing your experiences for others to see. The condominium is the central feature of this resort area. The close proximity of the beach and Gulf to the condominium is great for listening to the waves and viewing the wildlife.

A month in paradise

  • 5 of 5

I have returned from a month at beautiful Ft. Myers Beach. This condo is convenient to everything you could possibly need or want--trolley service plus bike trails and beach and town walking. Shopping was easy and interesting parks and sights within easy driving distances. The view from the condo was perfect. One of my favorite things was sitting at the table on the balcony, drinking my morning coffee while checking out the many birds and dolphins. The sunset view from the condo could not be more perfect. A heated pool is on the site if you enjoy swimming and the Gulf and beach are just out your door. The condo itself is maintained and equipped with the things you need for a stay including Wi-Fi and a large TV. In fact, I've already booked the condo for another visit next winter. For a terrific vacation, talk to Wayne and Elise and book your stay at FMB.

Owner's Response: The beach in front of our condominium, located in a wildlife preserve, is one of the best in Florida. The location of the condominium, all the amenities on the property, warm year-round temperatures, Fort Myers Beach Golf Course, located across the street, and Santini Plaza, located across the street; we have several guests visit without a car.

Great Getaway from the Ohio winter

  • 5 of 5

The month I spent in this comfortable and well located condo with the best view ever exceeded my expectations. I loved my coffee on the balcony in the morning watching for dolphins and viewing gorgeous sunset in the evening. Its location allows for very easy access to the beach, many restaurants the theater, shops, groceries, etc. Most within walking distance! I totally relaxed the month I spent in FMB in this condo. I recommend it to anyone who wants a relaxing time away. I have already booked for next year.

Thank you, Wayne and Elise, for sharing your condo and helping us schedule for next year. I can't wait! I look forward to hearing the palm trees rustle and the gulf lapping the shore.

Owner's Response: Our beach is located in a pristine area known as Little Estero Island. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission, acting under Florida Administrative code, designated the beach and surrounding area a Critical Wildlife Area. Currently, there are only 19 Critical Wildlife Areas in the State of Florida. This ensures the beach and surrounding area will remain in pristine condition and unspoiled for years to come.

Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was very nice! You can tell that over the years the condo has been very well taken care of. The view can not be beat. Waking up and being able to eat breakfast on the balcony each day was such a treat. We loved being so close to the beach (which was super nice and not crowded) and pool. We were able to explore not only Fort Myers Beach but also the surrounding cities.

Owner's Response: The short walk from the beach to the condominium is convenient for more snacks and restroom breaks. Our beach is located in a Critical Wildlife Area - one of 18 Critical Wildlife Areas in Florida. Sometimes professional photographers can be seen in the lagoon area, a short walk north of the beach, photographing the birds. The wildlife show begins daily from the lanai/ balcony at sun rise and continues until sun set with breath taking sun sets over the Gulf.
