Fort Myers Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Casita#13 is a ground floor, 2 bedroom / 1.5 bathroom condo in the Riptide Condominiums on Fort Myers Beach. The unit is 900 s.f., and has been recently remodeled, and sleeps 6. The decor is 'beachy' and casual. The parking is on the grounds, covered, convenient, and secure. The kitchen has all the conveniences to make your stay comfortable.

The Riptide is a lowrise complex of 13 units on the north end of the island 196 feet directly across from the beach. The complex is 3 blocks from Times Square and a short walk to Bowditch Point Park at the far north end of the island. Some guests at the Riptide have commented that a rental car was not required as everything that you might need (for a beach vacation) is in easy walking distance.

Behind the condo, on the canal, is a patio with lounge chairs, a picnic table and gas grill. Some guests have seen manatees in the canal. What a perfect spot for morning coffee, enjoy the morning sun and watch the birds and jumping fish. There is a kayak put-in here for the those who might want to kayak out to the Gulf. It is an easy kayak to Bowditch Park on the Northern tip of the Island.

The Riptide has a reputation as one of the best run and best-situated condo complexes on Fort Myers Beach - search reviews and see! The grounds are well maintained and constantly being upgraded.

About Jackie Corrigan

We are retired teachers who live in ski country in New Hampshire. In addition to teaching at our local high school, we owned a B&B. Juggling both careers was interesting, to say the least, so every chance we got, we vacationed in Florida. Now we vacation with the grandkids. Bob is a native of NH, and I grew up near Boston.

Jackie Corrigan purchased this condo in 2014

Why Jackie Corrigan chose Fort Myers Beach

Fort Myers Beach has it all--96 restaurants, outdoor activities, entertainment, and of course, glorious sunsets. We vacationed at this small condo complex for a number of years and fell in love with the location, the friendly atmosphere and the amenities. When this unit went up for sale, we jumped on it.

What makes this condo unique

The beach can't be beat. Sugar sand, clean and right in front of the condo. Biking, walking, seeing dolphins in the surf, seeing manatees in the canal, shelling. So much to do. We recommend the Ding Darling preserve just a short drive to Sanibel where we saw many species of birds and alligators. Riptide is a very welcoming place, easy to make friends or find peace and quiet.

GREAT PLACE, GREAT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
WOW, this place was perfect! Clean, modern....all the amenities you need for a fantastic vacation. 3 blocks from Times Square, 1 1/2 blocks from 7/11 for those emergency needs and right across the street from the beach. We were able to use the beach chairs and bikes at no charge any day we wanted and they had a canoe and a couple kayaks for VERY reasonable rates. The bay was really pretty and well furnished with chairs, tablew and a couple grills. We saw manatees, birds and fish jumping almost everyday. Tom, the manager was extremely accommodating and the owners were easy to work with. We will return to this property for sure!

Fun for Kids and Grownups and everyone in between!

  • 5 of 5
Great little place with everything you need within walking distance! Tom, Riptide Manager, greeted us and explained how everything worked. The deck in the back overlooks a canal where apparently manatees and dolphins frolic when the tide is high. We didn't get to see any but still enjoyed the peaceful grounds that included chairs and barbeque grills. 7-11 was 1 block down where we could pick up essentials. About 3 blocks down is Times Square, an area filled with restaurants, bars, souvenir shops. Friday evening there was a band playing and kids dancing. The beach is right there! We crossed thru beach access pathways and enjoyed the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. Riptide provided beach chairs and even pails and shovels for the kids. The unit itself was lovely with everything except toothbrushes and shampoo. It was clean and very well maintained. Only problem we encountered being on the ground floor was that we could hear upstairs tenants walking at all hours of the night. And when they ran water or flushed toilets, the water ran loudly thru pipes in our unit. We solved that problem by keeping bathroom doors closed. Parking, which is at a premium in Ft. Myers Beach, was no problem for us or my visitors as we were provided parking for 2 cars.

November is a great time to visit Ft. Myers Beach. We look forward to our next stay at the Riptide!

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5
We have been to Ft. Myers two other times and rented a house with a pool a few miles from the beach. This time we decided to stay right on the beach. What a great decision...no driving to the beach and waiting in traffic. The condo is not fancy and the compound doesn't have a lot of amenities. However, if the sun is shining and you are only steps to the beach, what more do you need? With kids along this time, ages 9 & 11, this was perfect! The deck out back was awesome for grilling and reading a book, but best of all we saw a pair of manatees swim by on two different occasions in the canal. We were also befriended by a crane who walked right up to us and also enjoyed watching the pelicans crash into the canal for feeding. The kids loved the whole experience and being able to walk to Time Square or Bowditch Park were also huge bonuses. We had a great time....location, location, location. The owners have picked a great place!

The location was absolutely perfect; very close to the beach and close enough to the action in Times Square that we could walk but far enough away that the nights were peaceful. The unit itself is set up very nicely with plenty of room. However, the living room furnishings, the carpeting, and the kitchen utensils need updating. There was a strong smell when we arrived, but with the help of the caretaker and a few deodorizers, we were able to have a pleasant stay. The grounds around the condo are well maintained and the deck out back by the canal is a very peaceful place to relax and sun one's self or read a book. We enjoyed meeting all the other people staying at the condo. They were very friendly and welcoming.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We, like you, feel that the Riptide has a great location and is very well maintained. All the furnishings were bought new in Sept. 2010, however, things do tend to get worn out a little faster in a rental condo. We are attending to your suggestions. Glad that you enjoyed your stay!

Great Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5
My stay at the condo was great, very clean, easy access to beach and downtown in minutes. Had a wonderful time during my stay. The manager Tom was very welcoming and nice. Would definetely stay there again. Had a wonderful time!!

The only problem we encountered was a family upstairs from us with a small child who would stomp and run around every morning and wake us up at 7:00 a.m. (Everyday!!)

Location, location. Within walking distance of restaurants, groceries, shopping and night spots, but on the quiet side, just north of Times Square. Time Square has lots of restaurants, outdoor dining, night spots, street performers and a fishing pier that extends quite a ways out. It is a favorite gathering spot to watch gorgeous sunsets.

But if you crave beach time, just walk across the street from this condo and park your beach towel. The beach here is less crowded, but you can view the fishing pier about a half mile away. Beautiful sugar sand beach, dolphins playing in the surf, para sailors, sea shells, and at certain times of the year, sand castle competitions makes for an unforgettable vacation. No need to use a car.

Bike & kayak rentals available. Canal access from the property will bring you right out into the Gulf. Additionally the beach trolley runs right by our front door and will take you up and down the island as well as into Ft. Myers. What more could you ask for. The beach in front of the property and the canal behind the property and all the action just a short walk away.
