Further, we replaced our King bedroom furniture with a NEW White Cottage set and also installed new 'Mississippi Pine' wood laminate flooring in the bedroom. NO dirt catching carpeting remains in our condo. Additionally, our NEW Heavy Duty Hurricane rated Turtle Tint windows and 9' slider door not only provides more safety, but more comfort for our condo as well. Our NEW AC now cools faster and better.

Special Note 4: We also own a great 3/3 LOG CANIN in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Contact me should you want to enjoy a wonderful Smoky Mountains vacation any time of the year. The cabin sleeps 10 people and you can split the cost with family and friends. Ober Gatlinburg is nearby.....ski slope and skating rink. Summertime, the slopes have water slides and fun for all. Don't forget Dollywood and the Great Smoky Mountain National park magical drive experience too!

You expect to see GREAT VIEWS from a Penthouse level beachside condo and you will get them Big Time from our place. We have a number of e-referrals we can share attesting to the Fabulous Views you will experience 'On Top'. Beware: there are many condos in our complex which have very poor and low unappealing parking lot views. You're going on Vacation, right? You deserve to be able to say WOW !!!!!!!!! when you lease a beachside vacation condo. You will LOVE our Fort Myers Beach Penthouse condo views !!

This Penthouse-level (14th floor) condo is situated on the Gulf of Mexico with fabulous views of Estero Bay, Naples, and Sanibel Island from the covered balcony. This one bedroom condo features a very comfortable king-size bed as well as a new queen sleeper sofa & rocker/recliner in the living room with a heavy sliding door for privacy. NOTE: Beautiful porcelain tile installed in the 'Diamond' pattern on all floors except the bedroom. It is gorgeous!! Only a handful of units offer this very upscale feature.

The Kitchen is fully-equipped including new arm kitchen chairs on wheels. Towels/linens are provided (see amenities below). Just bring your own beach towels! There is a huge heated pool with luxurious sun deck. There is a large grassy area for additional crowd-free sunning or sports activities.

Restaurants, drug store, marina and 18 hole golf course are just across the street. The beach trolley is only 25 cents and will take you from one end of the beach to the other and to Fort Myers for additional shopping or dining. There are two Supermarkets on the island. There is a Catholic Church & several Protestant Churches just up the street.

Enjoy four, well manicured (free) clay tennis courts on property at this prestigious private Beach and Tennis Club. Cook out on the free gas grills near the floor shuffleboards. From your balcony, view dolphins playing and jumping in the surf. There are also many species of colorful birds to see such as pelicans, egrets, osprey, and herons. NOTE: Please notice the difference between the views of our Penthouse unit and lower floor units also advertised in VRBO. While lounging on the balcony, you will not look out directly onto the unsightly WEEDS of the Sandbar. Our guests comment on this all the time. This is an important point to make.

Take early morning, afternoon, or sunset walks on the pure white sugar powder sand of this most beautiful beach. Stop in one of the many varied beachfront restaurants all along the boulevard. Enjoy dining or cocktails on their gulfside decks overlooking the beach. Beach sunsets are too beautiful to describe!

Our rates are generally lower than most all others at this tropical paradise. Repeat guests are guaranteed the same rates for at least two years!! Also, any rental referrals you provide us will earn you rent credits for your own future rentals.

Whether you desire a romantic get-away, a small family beach vacation, or are a retired couple looking for peace and serenity, you will find that you will fall in love with this little bit of heaven and want to return year after year.

There is something for everyone. Hunt shells on the beach, play golf or tennis, swim in the Gulf of Mexico, or just 'veg out' at the huge heated pool. One of our favorite things to do is to enjoy breakfast, lunch, or dinner on the covered balcony just taking in the gorgeous beach sights and sunsets. You can also rent beach chairs, umbrellas, 2 person hood shade lounges w/cushions right on the beach behind the Holiday Inn. The Holiday Inn is just a short 4-5 minute walk up the beach behind the condo. Their Pinchers Grill is a great outdoor Tiki Bar which serves beer, mixed drinks and food. They often offer live entertainmment. There are also a number of good restaurants and bars right across the street in Santini Plaza as well.

There is no better way to get away from all the stresses life presents! Treat yourself... you deserve it!

NOTE: Wi Fi can be accessed in the lobby area on the floor level of the condo building. There are chairs and tables to sit at for your convenience. Wireless is broadcast from the complex office located next to our building.

About Bob Gorman

We have owned our Penthouse level condo for many years and many of our renters are repeat guests. We do our best to satisy our guests. Our caretaker/cleaner lives nearby and Angela is happy to assist if there is any problem whatsoever. We aim to please. Understand that our prices include exit cleaning and start up toiletry supplies.

Why Bob Gorman chose Estero

We loved the views from our Penthouse level condo the first time we saw it. 100% Gulf views get boring fast and especially during the black nights. You have the best of both worlds looking from our balcony.....the Gulf waters, the night lights, the magical surroundings

What makes this condo unique

This is one of only 2 condos in Building 'A' where you can see OVER the other 2 buildings of our condo complex....all the way to Naples....AND see the Gulf of Mexico at the very same time from our balcony. The views are simply fabulous !

THE BEST!

  • 5 of 5

We've just completed our fourth vacation in this Penthouse condo and can't say enough about the experience. The condo is top-notch and the buildings, grounds and amenities are first-class. Good beach and sunset views. Within walking distance of every sort of service needed, from restaurants to a bookstore. We're booked for next year and can't wait!

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 2 weeks on Ft. Meyers Beach in Bob's condo. It was our first time in the area and first time renting through VRBO. Bob was terrific, quick to respond to my questions and even checked in on us the first day we arrived. Our favorite part of the condo was the balcony and the view! Both sunrises and sunsets are visible from this condo and they are breathtaking. Very comfortable accommodations and everything we needed was available to us. The beach is beautiful and never crowded - great location for walking. Everyone we met was very friendly. Highly recommend - we hope to be able to come back again!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your great guest review Dottie. So glad you had a wonderful time and underscored for others how nice our condo is and it's views are out of this world. So many people are disappointed with their condo choices when they look out onto lower building condo roofs next door, or if they have to walk 5 minutes to the pool from Building C in our complex, or if they have to lean over their balconies in order to see the Gulf of Mexico waters. We sure hope to hear back from you in the near future for another reservation! Bob

  • 5 of 5

Imagine waking up early just to see the vibrant colors of that South Florida Sky during Sunrise over Ostero Bay....and in the evening watch that same Sun slowly slide into the Gulf of Mexico.....from the same balcony....that's why I love this place....especially Santini Plaza right across the street,....shopping, 5 restaurants, South Beach is my favorite... personal services, a drug store, even a weekly Farmers Market....very responsive and friendly owners....clean and well appointed.....and the best part is NO SNOW .....so sign me up for next year too,...thanks Bob

Owner's Response: Great review Mike!! Thanks so much. Yes, I have your same weeks reserved for you next December. As long as you want, you can have those weeks. People reading our guest reviews should get the point by now......our guests love our place over the others. NEXT winter is almost fully booked, all with returning guests. There must be something about Penthouse 3 in A building people like! Bob

Great Place to stay...

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful week at this VRBO. This is the spot for serious tennis players with excellent Har-Tru courts available. Shopping center and marina right across the street - rent a boat!. Don't miss the Tuesday AM farmers market, and there is a produce stand there just about every day. Good dining and drinks in the shopping center. This is on the Penthouse Level (actually the 13th floor), with both a sunrise and sunset view. Very well equipped unit.

Another great vacation at this condo!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just came back from spending another 2 weeks at Bob's condo. This I think was our 3rd year staying at this place, and we've already booked again for next year, and there is a reason for this. Everything that you read about this condo on here is TRUE! From the description of the views, beach, pool, the condo itself, is accurate and what you would find! We have loved coming here, and Bob is wonderful to work with! I actually don't like writing this review, because I'd rather keep this paradise all to myself, but that's not fair either, you should get to experience this paradise too!! Thanks Bob, for opening up your condo to us! See ya next year!!

Owner's Response: Lauri: AGAIN, your kind words about our condo are much appreciated! It is important that prospective guests see that repeat guests love our condo and it's great views and my VRBO ad description is accurate. Many are not. A number of units overlook roof air conditioners on lower story condos next door or have to lean over their balconies to get a glimpse of the Gulf of Mexico waters and beach. So glad you and family have found a longterm vacation spot. I am holding the same weeks for you next year. Kind regards, Bob
