About Jim & Marilyn Horton
We both grew up in Connecticut and still reside there. The land of steady habits! :-) We attended college in Connecticut as well and both spent our entire careers in public school education. We are now retired which allows us to spend more time on beautiful Ft. Myers Beach.
Jim & Marilyn Horton purchased this Condo in 1992
Why Jim & Marilyn Horton chose Mid Island
We first visited Ft. Myers Beach in 1991 and immediately fell in love with the beautiful white sandy beach and community. Something really 'spoke' to us on our first trip. The following year we purchased our Voted 'Best Condominium on the Beach' condo and have traveled to Ft. Myers Beach every year since!!
What makes this Condo unique
Our first priority in purchasing a home on Ft. Myers Beach was that it had to be direct Gulf front and offer wonderful views of the Gulf of Mexico. We were very fortunate to find both of these qualities in our condo. In addition, we loved the interior design and floor plan. We insisted on a 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit because we wanted to have adequate space for family and friends to visit us. We love our condo and have never once regretted purchasing it. We still marvel at the spectacular views that we get from our lanai, master bedroom, living room, dining room and kitchen!

Beautiful condo! We have stayed in this unit before and find it comfortable and immaculate. Everything you need is at your fingertips. The owners, Jim and Marilyn, are a pleasure to deal with. We will definitely will be returning again!
Thank you Melinda for your kind words. Our number one priority is providing a wonderful vacation experience and good customer service to our guests. We look forward to your return!
Gorgeous and comfortable, with everything you need
This gorgeous place has a lot going for it. The view from the lanai is stunning, and the building is right on the beach, separated only by a grassy area (shady in the morning) perfect for lounging. The sandy beach itself is beautiful, and an excellent location for walking and swimming. The condo is tastefully and comfortably furnished (the recliner and couch are particularly comfortable). The kitchen is well equipped and conveniently arranged, and we also appreciated the access to the very nice grills in the common area outside. It was great to be on the second floor -- high enough for a good view, but easy for using the stairs (although there is also an elevator when needed). The building is perfectly located: not far from the bustling "Times Square" on one end of the island, but far enough to offer some peace and quiet. We also took advantage of the many fun restaurants in the neighborhood, and even made a day trip to nearby Sanibel Island. Jim and Marilyn were very helpful and accommodating when we made arrangements. Highly recommended!
Thank you Steve for choosing our condo for your vacation and for your wonderful comments. We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay at our "Voted Best Condominium on the Beach" condo. We, too, love the beautiful views from our second floor condo. Nothing makes us happier than having satisfied renters.
We had 2 weeks of a great relaxing beach vacation. Just steps from the white sandy beach with great shelling. Fantastic sunsets from the lanai. Local grocery close by. Appreciated the kitchen's all new appliances and tile flooring throughout. Furnishings were nice and comfortable. Condo was very clean and property was well maintained. It was a pleasure dealing with the owner and condo staff. Owner is very prompt in responding to any inquiries. Definitely returning!!
Thank you Sherry for your kind words. We are delighted that you enjoyed your two week stay at our condo! We, too, love the fantastic sunsets and direct access to the beautiful sand of Ft. Myers Beach. Also, glad that you enjoyed the kitchen’s new appliances. We strive to offer the best customer service possible by responding promptly to all inquiries. We look forward to your return next year!
Love Smuggler's Cove! perfect location !
Condo was nicely updated and had everything we needed! Great mid-island location.
It was a pleasure hosting Patty and her family at our "Voted Best Condominium on the Beach" condo. We agree, the mid-island location is perfect for a relaxing vacation. Glad you enjoyed the updates!
I love this location, the Condo is very nice, great size for 1-4 people, location on mid- island has the best of the beach. Not a lot of beach traffic this time of year but close enough to either end depending on what people like to do. I will be excited when they finally finish the work on Estero Blvd.
Thank you Nancy for your kind words. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at our Ft. Myers Beach condo and that you found our mid-island location to be ideal for your vacation! Nothing makes us happier than to know that our condo and fantastic views provided such a wonderful vacation for you. We look forward to your return next year!
Had a great time. Lovely place.
Had a great time. Accommodations were good. The only complaint would be the driving on estero drive.
We are so glad that Mary had a great time and that she enjoyed her stay at our "Voted Best Condominium on the Beach" condo. Sorry to hear that the traffic was busy on Estero Blvd, but, we can only control so much! :-)
