Overview

Fort Myers Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Our 2nd floor, gulf-front condominium has beautiful water views and is situated on a white sand beach on the Gulf of Mexico. The waves are gentle, and the gulf-floor slopes to an offshore sand bar. Because of this, Fort Myers Beach is often called 'The World's Safest Beach'. Adults and children spend countless hours sitting on the sand bar enjoying the sun and gulf or digging for sand dollars and shelling. Dolphins are commonly spotted playing in the waters alongside you.

Our unit is a true 'Gulf Front' - the master bedroom, living room and dining room all directly face the Gulf of Mexico and palm trees swaying in the wind, while the guest bedroom and kitchen face Estero Boulevard. This is a real two bedroom, two full bathroom unit, with over 1,250 square feet of room, no 'folding partition' that other units have. Also, enjoy the benefit of being on the lower floor with a shorter commute to the beach.

Both bedrooms have new mattresses, linens and furniture to ensure a restful night enables you a full day of enjoyment. Inside, the kitchen is complete with all new appliances (microwave, oven, blender, toaster, coffee maker, etc.) and utensils (dishes, glasses, silverware, etc.) Enjoy your meals or drinks at the dining room table for a more formal environment or the balcony table, which is directly on the beach, for a more casual environment and better views, especially of the incredible sunsets.

The living room, with beautiful views of the beach and gulf, has two couches, table and new 55' high definition plasma TV. Enjoy your favorite program (HBO, Showtime, etc.) or Sony PlayStation, which lets you challenge a friend to a karaoke sing off – always a hit after a rum runner in the sun. A selection of DVDs, books and video games along with free broadband internet are available for your use. All local and domestic long distance calls are complimentary.

The master bedroom includes a 50' high definition LCD TV along with DVD and has views of the gulf and beach from two windows and through the balcony. All areas are very bright, so new plantation shutters and hurricane shutters will allow you to decide just how bright you want it.

In addition to the amenities inside, your time will also include a pool, sundeck (with chairs), covered parking and gated access to the beach. You will find beach towels, coolers, basic fishing gear, a metal detector, etc. for you to make your visit less about preparing to go to the beach and more about enjoying the beach. Bring bathing suits, flip flops and don't forget the sunblock, we have the rest. And when you need to clean those clothes, we have a new washer and dyer in the unit.

There is a wide variety of restaurants and shops on Fort Myers Beach, which are easily accessible by a five minute walk north or further by public trolley, which runs the length of the seven-mile long island. With countless parks, nature preserves, bars, etc., so close, you can rent bicycles or scooters to explore the island on. The estuary on the south end of the beach is listed in the top 200 bird-watching spots in the United States and is the only estuary in the US with a flock of Roseate Spoonbills arriving daily at dawn and dusk.

We are conveniently located approximately 35 minutes from Regional Southwest Airport (RSW) in Fort Myers. In addition to enjoying all that Fort Myers Beach has to offer, you are within 30-40 minutes of beautiful Naples and Sanibel/Captiva Islands. You will never run out of things to do in Fort Myers Beach!

Please check out our photos, we've just finished a complete redecoration and partial remodel: new glass-top range, new counters, microwave, bedroom furniture, coffee table, new wall covering, new window treatments, art, bedding and linens and a Keurig coffee maker.

Our unit has a minimum rental of age of 35 years old for parents and all children are welcome.

Heavenly Sunset Setting

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful condo with great amenities right on the Gulf. The sunsets were absolutely heavenly. We spent a lot of our time just sitting on the Lanai taking in that gorgeous view.... very serene. The owner was very accommodating and always responded to our questions in a timely manner. We totally enjoyed the two weeks we were down there.

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the condo for 3 weeks. It was awesome! It was the first time we had ever rented anything online, sight unseen. The process was simple. Thomas responded to everything quickly. When we arrived at the condo it looked exactly like the pictures. It is modern, updated and absolutely spotless. They have included everything that you could possibly want/need while on vacation. We are very picky travelers and we would definitely return to this condo. The location is great at the far/quiet end of the beach. We spent a lot of time in Bonita & Naples and it was very easy to get there. We took walks on the beach every morning and it is just lovely. The building is well kept/clean and the other renter & residents are quiet. The sunsets every night are breathtaking. Overall just a really great experience.

ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS vacation !!!!

  • 5 of 5

The four of us ( 2 forty somethin couples) had a fantastic vacation staying here. The condo is very well maintained and the owners have updated and decorated beautifully. The "little things" provided truly set this rental apart. K cups , awesome beach chairs, even a great cooler and water bottles! No packing beach towels either. Tom was very easy to work with and attentive. The condo is located at the quieter end, but a short distance to the busier areas and town. There is a trolley that can be used to get around if needed. Grocery nearby. The view from the beautiful lanai is breathtaking. We really enjoyed our morning coffee on the lanai and walks on the beach. The shelling was fantastic! We spent a few days just enjoying the beach thanks to the chairs, umbrella, and cooler. We can't wait for our next visit !!!!!

Heaven is a place on earth

  • 5 of 5

An absolutely amazing Condo with tremendous support from both the owner and local agent. Stayed here for a week with two kids after two weeks of Orlando theme parks. It was truly wonderful - the Condo is great with EVERYTHING you could ever want provided for you - the beach was absolutely dead, at the most maybe 10 people on it at most on the busiest day! And 100 degree sunshine - what else could you ask for? .... Oh, the dolphins and the fish and the warm sea ......... Great local restaurants are within walking distance and good outlet shopping only 30 mins nearby. We will be back hopefully next Spring flights permitting and I really cannot recommend this Condo highly enough.

A Relaxing Week

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this location for the first time. The condo was all updated with a nice 65 inch TV in the main living area, and additional hd TV's in the bedrooms. The entire place has been updated. There were beach chairs, umbrellas, toys for the kids. There even was a PS4 and a WII for the kids with games. Lots of restaurants and downtown was very close. It was peaceful and quiet yet if you wanted some excitement everything was close.
