Overview

Fort Myers Beach Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible Bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

Located on what is described as one of the top ten beaches in the US, Lover's Key Beach Club, lies between the glistening waters of the Gulf of Mexico and Estero Bay. Lover's Key is an idyllic paradise with serenity, privacy, romance and adventure. It is a nature lover's dream, where you can enjoy the dolphins and manatees swimming by, the sea turtles and the exotic nesting birds from osprey to white herons.

The condo is located directly on a private white sugar sand beach with a backdrop of swaying palms, tropical flowers and majestic water fountains. The private beach in front of the condo has plenty of loungers and tahiti huts offering shade from the beautiful Florida sunshine.

Relax on the huge private balcony overlooking the pool and ocean and watch the sailboats pass by and amaze at the ever present frolicking dolphins.

The condo is completely remodeled this December 2011 with brand new kitchen,new furniture, new appliances, giant flat screen TV on the living room wall, new whisper quiet A/C units.... and fully repainted. The bedroom features a queen size bed and the living room has a pull out sofa bed.

The private beach connects directly to the Lover's Key State Park where you can explore the magnificence of the estuary by kayak or by walking the many nature trails and miles of gulf -front beach. There are innumerable wild-life and bird watching opportunities here and of course the fabulous shelling on the beach. There is a boat launch, kayak rentals and the park has a new million dollar picnic area, park and playground for kids.

The large heated swimming pool and hot tub are great, with both overlooking the bay. You can grill your catch of the day on the high quality Weber gas BBQ's and enjoy your meal right there at the 'dolphin deck'. If you want a change from the serenity then jet skis, power boats and pontoon boats are available nearby for rent so you can thrill to the dolphins racing along side you or to get a better glimpse of the sea turtles, sting rays ...in their natural habitat.

There is a trolley that runs up and down Fort Myers Beach and to the Shopping Mall (including a supermarket and K-Mar) in Bonita Springs. The trolley stops right outside the property---hop on for 25 cents and enjoy the hustle and bustle of Times Square in North Fort Myers Beach with its many shops and restaurants. If you are in the mood for a round of golf or a game of tennis ---these are all located jut minutes away. You actually don't need a car at Lover's Key---all is so easily accessible without one.

You and your family will love it here. It is truly a very special place.

PS. all doors within the apartment are super wide for wheelchair accessibility and the bathroom is totally wheelchair accessible. The unit was designed as one of the mandatory wheel chair suites in the days when the condo was a luxury hotel.

Great location, great accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Stayed there with my teenaged daughter. Location is great because it's away from the hustle and bustle of FMB, yet the trolley makes it a easy way to get to the hustle and bustle. The place is clean with nice appliances. The balcony is great for watching the sunset. The beach is wonderful, and we saw dolphins and manatees right in front of us. Pelicans and egrets showed up, too. We ere able to keep the windows open because the weather was perfect. However, when we had the windows open, we could hear the noise from the swimming pool. We spent most of our time at the beach, so it wasn't that important, just a word of caution.

Location is perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this unit for 2 years and it's about time I write a review! The owner of this unit is wonderful and very easy to work with, as well as being extremely helpful and fast to respond to any question or concern. The location is PERFECT! Just steps outside the unit and you're on soft, white sandy beach that stretches for miles! Other buildings in Lovers Key do NOT have this beach access! Just sit on your balcony with a cup of coffee in the morning and count the dolphins in the bay while watching pelicans dive for breakfast! Sound like paradise? It is!

Perfect Romantic Getaway!

This stay was a great vacation! We enjoyed the great views from the balcony, the unit is well laid out. The private beach was beautiful for both relaxing and walking. Owner is very responsive and friendly. Would recommend Doc's in Bonita Beach for their sunset views.

Our stay at Rudi's condo on Lover's Key

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent first experience for us with VRBO. Rudi, the owner, was wonderful to work with, sent us lots of great additional pictures and was very responsive on email. Even called us on our arrival date to make sure all was well!! The listing on VRBO was accurate in terms of describing the general property, and there were plenty of great pictures to see the layout. The condo and the property are both VERY well laid out for a person in a wheelchair, and I know this because my mom is disabled, so I look for those things. The property even keeps a BEACH wheelchair as well! The condo was nicely appointed with higher end appliances and amenities. The property has it's own beautiful beach and provides great chairs for sitting on the beach as well. The location is GREAT! because it is right on Lover's Key state park with access to hiking, biking, canoeing, kayaking and a public launch facility. It's also centrally located between Fort Myers Beach and Bonita Springs so lots of great shopping, restaurants and marina's within in a quick drive and if you decide against a car, you are directly on the Trolley route that will take you up and down the beach. There is a wonderful restaurant called Flippers located directly on the site with the condo, making wonderful seafood dinners VERY easily accessible. I highly recommend the Lobster Eggs Benedict!! Fish Tale Marina is a 5 minute jaunt up Fort Myer's Beach where Captain Alex will take you all over Estero Bay for all the great fishing sites on your own private fishing charter. All in all, one of our best experiences in FL. I highly recommend the location, and encourage you to contact Rudi for a very pleasant condo rental experience.

our stay las summer

  • 5 of 5

I spent my last summer holiday together with my 17 years old son in Lovers Key and it was perfectly wonderdful. We both enjoyed our stay in the appartment. The furniture is exellent and new, fully equipped kitchen, aircondition in the bed room and living room,large bathroom, two tvs, large balcony with a view overlooking the pool, the whirlpool and the sea. We'd loved to have breakfast outside watching the pelican each morning. On the ground floor there is also a space with washing machines and dryers, a ping pong table and barbeque grillers which could be used. Therefore that the location is directy on the beach (natural reserve) it will invites you for endless beach walks. Don't forget water bottels. We always were away for round 2 hours! I highly recommend this location to all who seek peace and nature lovers. For all of you who don't want to drive a car for dinner I can recommend a small beach bar only 5 minutes by feet away from the appartment. It's called Flipper's. We loved the live music and the meal also the view at the sea, the sunrise the whole atmosphere and the very friedly and helpful staff. If you want to cook by yourself there are plenty of supermarkets nearby to reach by car but we were to lazy. At the end I will say that we decide to come again.

Fort Myers is where Thomas Edison and Henry Ford had their winter estates. They knew where to spend the winter. A visit to their homes on famous McGregor Ave is interesting. Be sure to explore the Lover's Key State Park and watch the Manatee. Kayaking in the waters for the State Park is interesting. The wild life on Lover's Key is fascinating. Watching the Osprey dive for fish and then bring them to their nests is exciting. The famous Flipper's Restaurant is right on site and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you go for an early breakfast you can watch the dolphins only a few feet away from the restaurant's deck. The menu is vary varied and the cuisine is superb and the prices are low. If you want more excitement take the trolley from in front of the condo and for 50 cents it whisks you to Times Square which is the heart of Fort Myers beach. The restaurants along the beach are great and range from Greek, Italian, Japanese.... Many are right on the beach. If you like to shop then the Tangier Outlet Mall is very close by with all the name brand stores selling their wares at bargain prices. Come with an empty suitcase! Even larger is the Miramar Outlet Mall on I-75. You can spend a day there and not cover all the stores. The movie theater is just a mile up the road from the condo if you want to take in a first run movie. There is also fine live theater on both Estero and Sanibel. If you like classical music, the South West Florida Symphony Orchestra perform in the Barbara Mann Center for performing arts in Fort Myers. If you like water excitement rent a jet ski and go on a tour to watch the dolphins romping in Estero Bay. Get up early and you will discover some of the best shelling in the world. If fishing is your fancy then just bring a rod and some bait and find a nice spot along the miles of unspoiled beach of Lover's Key and try your luck. Bring your catch back to the condo and grill it on one of the Weber grills by the water, then serve the fish on the Dolphin Deck right beside the BBQ's.
