Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Come experience paradise! Our two bedroom Condo is a spacious (1380 square feet) end unit that lets the warm glow of brilliant Florida sunshine into every room. Thanks to our great Gulf Front location, there is a view of the Gulf from nearly every room. The best place to watch the sunset is from the comfort of the beachfront lanai.

The Eden House is a recently remodeled Gulf Front condominium. Use the trolley stop in front of the Eden House to reach the island restaurants, shops, open air cafes, and souvenir shops. The Eden House condominium building offers an upscale vacation getaway of your dreams.

The swimming pool has been upgraded with a redesigned brick paver patio and pool surround area. The Condo grounds have been completely re-landscaped creating a setting of tropical beauty for residents and guests.

When not sampling the seafood cuisine of local restaurants you can prepare your meals in our fully equipped kitchen. You can pack light thanks to the stacked washer/dryer unit in the kitchen. The master bedroom has its own walk-in closet, king-size bed, TV, and private bath. The guest bedroom has a queen-size bed and a full wall of closet space. With the sleeper sofa in the front room, the Condo will comfortably sleep up to six people.

You have your private parking spot conveniently located under the building. The Eden House is located near the south end of Fort Myers Beach (Estero Island), far enough from the bustle of the Times Square shopping area to provide a quiet retreat during your stay.

As many of our guests have said, this is the perfect place to unwind- especially if your idea of a perfect day is to lounge at the pool or relax at the beach. Then choose between selecting one of the fine island restaurants or staying in for a home cooked meal. Read a book on the lanai (bring your own or select one of ours) or relax in a comfy recliner and plan your tomorrow.

If you are like us, you will find yourself taking daily walks on the beach, each day wanting to walk a little farther than the day before. For the ultimate walking enthusiast, walk the seven miles of white sands beach from the Eden House to the Times Square shopping area. But remember to carry a quarter with you so that you can ride the island tram back to the Eden House.

If you brag that your backyard grilled steaks and seafood are the best in the world, see if they don’t taste even better when grilled just before sunset on the beach at the Gulf of Mexico. Carry your grilled pride and joy a few steps from the Eden House grill to the thatched roof tiki hut and enjoy your meal at the picnic table while taking in the view of the lights of Naples and the island of Sanibel on the horizon.

So come and enjoy watching dolphins, sailboats, and sunsets from Eden House 306. Stay for a week, a month, or forever!

About The Owner

My wife, Pam, is a retired school teacher and I am a retired Chemical Engineer. Our daughter Katie and her husband, Paul, have four children so our beach vacations to the condo can include a variety of activities.

One minor regret that we have is that after we bought the condo we loved it so much that we stopped vacationing anywhere else. But since we've retired, we have the time to enjoy traveling to many different places.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1998

Why The Owner chose Fort Myers Beach

We bought our condo in the Eden House for a number of reasons. First and most important is that the condo is beachfront.

Secondly, the unit is an end unit in the building with windows in every room. Other condos that we looked at were interior units that were 'tunnel-like' with windows only at the opposite ends of the unit.

The condo is also relatively large with 1350 sq ft of floor space. There is elbow room for everyone even when six people vacation together.

The Eden House is also beautifully maintained and landscaped.

Finally, it is on the south end of the island. This is the 'quiet end' of the island away from the commercial attractions on the north end of the island. These attractions are simply a trolley ride or car ride away.

What makes this condo unique

The lanai (Florida speak for porch) is screened in and directly overlooks the Gulf of Mexico. It is large enough to accommodate our six wicker chairs.

No need to leave your unit to do your wash. There is a washer and dryer in the kitchen laundry closet. You can obviously pack much lighter knowing that doing your laundry is no inconvenience whatsoever.

Beautiful Gulffront Condo

  • 5 of 5

This two bedroom condo is on the "quiet" end of the island.

The screened lanai is large enough for four or five people to sit and eat. You have a washer and dryer in the unit which means that you can pack light.

And you get a perfect view of the sunsets from either the beach or the lanai every evening.

Peace and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place for relaxation. It was very peaceful and serene here. The view was great. The owner was very responsive. This condo has a direct view of the Gulf. I picked this condo because it was away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Ft Myers Beach. I used this location as a great area in which to go from one fishing spot to another.. This is a large condo.

Truly Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, close to everything, and the Trolley was a nice plus. Very close to Captiva and Sanibel. Spacious and charming. One down side, the screen on the lanai could use to be replaced, we were eaten alive by bugs. Truly that was the only downside.

Enjoyed our stay - great view of the gulf

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this unit and really enjoyed it. Condo was clean and comfortable and made you feel at home. However, I agree with the lanai review. You do have to walk a small distance to the beach. In the heat, this was a real walk. The first three days, we felt like we had the building and pool to ourselves. However, when the owners came, at the pool, we felt like we were intruding. A group of retirees sat and read at the pool daily. I had my 3 year old granddaughter and family with me and keeping her quiet was a task. Only one owner was friendly. Maybe not a good unit for families with young children.

the lanai

  • 5 of 5

we arrived july 4 2015 the condo was fantastic the view was perfect BUT if you are looking for EASY access to the beach this is not for you. the lanai is in front of beach so you have to walk around it to get to beach and it also has mosquitoes and the beach was full of rotting seaweed.again the condo was PERFECT but maybe than cut down on the amount of keys you have to have.we did find a BEAUTIFUL beach in SANIBEL-NORMAN BEACH.the sand white and water cool.we found many many sandollar and starfish bigger than your hand
