FT MYERS BEACH - PENTHOUSE CONDO - BEST VIEWS ON THE BEACH !

Estero Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

SPECIAL NOTE 1: NEW FOR OUR Beach condo GUESTS -FREE in condo wireless internet service. We recognize our guests needs to have a strong computer wireless signal inside our condo, so we have added this amenity and a NEW Blu Ray DVD player too !

SPECIAL NOTE 2: We remodeled our condo extensively. We replaced all kitchen cabinets, installed a deep double bowl black granite sink, tile backsplash and also installed a new stove and refrigerator, We also replaced our old entertainment cabinet with a new modern tapes and book storage cabinet and installed a new wall mount 37' Toshiba flatscreen TV. 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. The AC now cools faster and better.

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.

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.

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

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 !

Fabulous Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We are two adults who stayed at this condo for 2 weeks the end of July and the first week of August. We have been to Fort Myers Beach on numerous occasions but this was by far the best location yet.

Every day we got up; looked out of the windows, and said "Wow!". The views are stunning no matter which way you look. We couldn't get enough of watching the waves on the sand, the boats going by, and the birds flying overhead. If you looked the other way there was a pretty view that just went on and on of condos, bays, inlets, and we saw a rainbow more than once.

Every morning we sat on the lanai and had our coffee. We then took the elevator to the ground level and walked steps to the pool. We just had to look up and could see the beach which was only a very short little walk away. I wouldn't even call it a walk!

Santini Plaza across the street has everything you could want. We frequented it often in the past but it was so nice to just be across the street from the restaurants and shops and not have to drive there. As mentioned by other reviewers, Publix is just a short drive down the road.

I don't think you can beat this location and we hope to return.

Were stayed at Bob's Condo July of 2014
We had a great time at our Condo in Florida at Ft Myers. We were told that it would be too hot in the summer, temperature was around 90 beautiful weather. We were worried because of us being on the 13 floor. But our view was beautiful and we loved our view. This was our 1st time trying a vacation for two weeks in a Condo and in Florida and neither one of us were ready to leave it was so very relaxing.
I have to remember to let sports fans know like my hubby he a big sports fan he was worried about relaxing and having a beer and seeing his Cubs loose another game. Well know worry there was a Sports Bar in walking distance and of coarse Cubs didn't disappoint him they lost. lol Everything you really needed was right in walking distance. Its a great place to get away and relax and we enjoyed our two weeks and wished we had stayed longer. Thank you Bob

Great price, Great view, Penthouse condo:

  • 5 of 5
We've stayed at Bob's condo on several occasions over the last 2 summers and really enjoyed our stays. The penthouse is ideal for a couple or a couple with small children. Fort Myers beach is a very relaxing location, beaches are not crowded at all, but apparently if you go down to the "town square" you can get some party atmosphere, if that is what you are looking for. (not us!) This end of the beach is really quiet and nice.

The balcony of Bob's unit has a really great view: look out to the right and you see the ocean; look out to the left and you can see the entire city and beyond. (We like to be able to see our car from the room, and you can from this unit). We ate many of our meals on the balcony: you can watch all the cool cars and motorcycles go down the road, then look out at the ocean, next thing you know there's a pelican flying by...then a sea hawk. Also, some of the tennis matches you can see from the balcony are pretty hilarious! After dark, the balcony is a nice spot for a nice adult beverage, looking out over the city lights and palm trees. Nice, comfy patio furniture. (We like to take the cushions inside, so they are nice and dry from the occasional rain shower.) It gets a bright morning sun, so by lunch it's perfect dining outside in the shade.
The beach itself has the most visible sea life of any beach I've ever been to. There are tons of sand dollars, star fish, huge conches, and snails. We found a baby octopus in one of the shells we picked up (we took him back out to sea). The bird life is also amazing. We got some really great pictures of different birds. You can walk the beach as far as you want: we only made it down to the big bridge once or twice (which might have been a couple miles).
The condo has everything you should need for the week as far as cookware, stove, fridge, microwave, cool A/C (not central, but not a problem, still cooled nicely). The building has a security code to enter, which is changed periodically and a security guard that monitors the area (make sure you put out your parking pass!)
We liked eating at Doc Ford's not too far away, also there is a Publix just up the road for all your eat-in meals. We tried the Skip one seafood restaurant on a previous trip, but we would not go back there. It was just "ok". There are a lot of restaurants within walking distance, if you don't have a car. We will stay here again.
Thanks again, Bob!

Amazing views and easy access to anything you could need during your stay. The condo is very well kept as well as the entire property. We couldn't have asked for a better place to spend our vacation!

Owner's Response: Thank you Ken for your wonderful guest review. People read these reviews and they help them decide which units they will secure for their vacations. Many people who have stayed in our well located and furnished condo have done so after staying in other BAD units....inside and out re: drab and dated interiors & terrible balcony views. Our returning guests in the fall and winter are almost 80% of our bookings, so they must be very satisfied! We hope to hear back from you very soon re: another reservation. Bob

Relaxing Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Enjoyed a relaxing stay at the condo. Yes, the view is beautiful! I even witnesses a "full" rainbow after a storm from the balcony. Even the bad weather is beautiful there! Enjoyed many quiet meals and peaceful time on the balcony. The beach is not crowded.........almost private. The area seems to have the "old" Florida charm. I found many wonderful restaurants nearby. I enjoyed dining at The Fish House and also the little ice cream parlor is great for breakfast. After a full day of scouring the beach and local area I would retreat to the pleasant comfort of the condo. Several times I watched dolphins from the window! Bob, the owner, is very accommodating and helpful. He seems to be keeping the condo in good condition and updated. People within the complex are also pleasant and helpful.
