This is one of the best vacation condos we have stayed in. It was clean and had everything you could need, even for the beach. We slept so good there and what a view. Absolutely awesome. Love it, we hope to be back and have already recommended it to some of our friends and coworkers.

Fantastic condo

  • 5 of 5

I have to say I felt at home the minute I opened the door. The condo is simply delightful. The decor is light, beachy and welcoming. The pictures don't do it justice. Everything you could want is here. The kitchen is well stocked with whatever you would need. There are also beach chairs and towels galore. The most remarkable thing is the view. You feel like you're floating on the water. You only realize that you're not when you step out on the balcony. Then you see the lovely grounds and the pool. The sunsets are amazing. Every night it's different. I wouldn't change a thing about this condo.

The Great Escape 2015

  • 5 of 5

My first time booking a vacation destination such as this online. It was the best I'd ever done! This Condo was booked for the two weeks we wanted at Christmas. The owner, Herman went out of his way and found us a Condo in building "C", also at the Estero Beach & Tennis Club. As all the Condos in this complex have the same layout, with the only difference being the view. From the moment we crossed over the bridge onto the island, we knew we'd found a little slice of paradise. The "Club" is an amazing location, the lane leading to the buildings meanders on small paving stones past well manicured lawns, a pond with aquatic birds and fountain.

With instructions provided by Herman, the registration process was quick and easy. It took less than five minutes from arrival to turning the key at the Condo door. The Condo was perfect, fully appointed, from kitchen to bath, there wasn't anything else we needed. The view from the balcony was west facing, the beach, and Gulf Of Mexico greeted you every morning. The sunsets from "your" private balcony are the most romantic ever seen, each evening, wine in hand was a ritual. The beach in front of the Condo Complex was gorgeous. Even though we were there at peak season time, it felt like a private beach. If you like to walk the beach as we do, it goes on for miles. We were able to watch the dolphins swim along the shoreline from the beach, seashell collection is infinite.

There are many restaurants, Bars and gift stores on the Island. Many sightseeing tour providers, watercraft rentals, and beaches galore. A rental car is suggested, but there is a tram service that runs along Estero boulevard connecting to stops for the Publix Store, restaurants and other businesses.

This has been the most relaxing vacation we have experienced...we have already booked with Herman again for the next Christmas Vacation.

The view of the beach was great. Every morning and evening got to watch the dolphins swim by. Walking on the white sandy beach, got to see Starfish, Sand dollars, blue crabs, last day there got to see a school of sting rays swimming close to shore. Dinning, Bars, grocery store, ect. close by. Herman was nice enough to call the first day and make sure we made it and to let us know what was around do, and make sure I didn't have any questions. I even recommended this place to a lady on the plane on the way home.. :)

A summer to remember

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Herman's place for a week, it was last minute vacation plan and everything worked out well. Herman is the best, very accommodating and helpful. Everything is accessible there's nearby restaurants in the mall, Pinchers is walking distance as well, CVS and 7-eleven is also close by. I did not rent a car anymore-the beach trolley is cheaper. Everything is provided linens, towels, beach chairs and umbrella. We were swimming at the beach and had a chance to hung out with a friendly manatee who stayed near the shore for a long time, the next day a dolphin swim behind us too. It's awesome and feels like paradise. The other tourists are friendly and also I had a chance to met a whole year round resident of the condo who is very warm and friendly. Celebrating 4th of July in Times Square is unforgettable. I would highly recommend Herman's place, in fact I told my close friends about my experience here.
