GULF FRONT - NEWLY RENOVATED - NOW BOOKING MAY!!!

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 42' 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 32' 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.

Just beauitful

We had a wonderful stay in the well appointed condo overlooking the gulf. Just beautiful! The two bathrooms and kitchen were updated; the condo was clean. We enjoyed being able to open the glass doors to the deck almost the full length of the condo which provided more space and added to the overall appeal of practically living outdoors. The only thing I can say I missed was a garbage disposal but I assume garbaage disposals for the whole building was not possible. Thank you for a perfect condo and a perfect 2 weeks.

This was our second trip to Ft. Myers Beach and our friends first. This is a great location and the condo was beautiful. The beach is quiet and sunsets were gorgeous. This condo is exactly like the pictures. All recently updated. Needless to say, we spent a lot of time on the balcony having coffee, lunch and drinks watching the sunsets! If you are looking for a condo in this area, I fully recommend this one. Thanks Tom for allowing us to spend a week in your place. When there was a problem, it was resolved immediately!

Exceeded Our Expectations

This was our first visit to Ft. Myers Beach. The condo was fantastic - exactly as advertised. The location was also fantastic. It was more quiet and less crowded than the other end of the island. Getting around was easy and nothing was too far away. What we loved the most were the birds! We spent hours watching the different species - and yes, there is a bird guide and binoculars in the condo. The day before our departure we had another surprise - manatees swimming about. Totally unexpected! This was, by far, one of our most relaxing and enjoyable vacations. We definitely plan to come back to this beach and this condo.

Spent a relaxing week in this beautiful condo. Being newbies to the condo process we were very impressed at the ease of booking, and qaulity we received. Really fool proof and organized and stocked for your needs, plus great communication from the owner. Priceless having a drink on your own balcony watching the sunset in the gulf. Quiet location yet close enough to shopping and the beach shopping area. recommended

Very Nicely Appointed

The Condo was very tastefully decorated and the second floor location provides for a spectacular view! The pictures are exactly what you get and it is even more impressive to see for yourself. The owner provided very nicely for many of the little things that really make a difference and provide comfort when you are far from home. The beach was clean, quiet, fun and very beautiful. Many great places to eat, sight see, go boating or have lots of quiet time if you wish. We have already shared this experience with friends and made a strong recommendation. Well appointed by a very accommodating owner, we so enjoyed, thank you!
