heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

This unit was a very comfortable place, in that it was clean and everything needed including all of the kitchenware for cooking and there is even a VCR. The view from the balcony is wonderful. The beach is only a short distance, and if you don't feel like going to the beach, there is a great pool here. It is hard to get bored in this spot since everything, including restaurants are close by. I would give this place a five star rating, and I will be back.

My Favorite Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the best vacation my husband and I have ever had. The Condo was perfect and it was exactly as described. It is very spacious and darling with an excellent view from the balcony of the gulf. We had access to the beach and to the pool. Cheryl was very nice when I spoke to her on the phone and she gave us lots of ideas on where to eat and to go. A perfect hostess!! We will definitely book the condo with her again.

Owner's Response: I'm happy that you had a great time & enjoyed my condo. It's very easy to have a conversation about my condo & our complex because my husband & I love staying there as well. It's in such a perfect location with Santini Plaza & the Marina right across the street. There's several restaurants & shops in the Plaza & you can rent boats or take a boat ride at the Marina next door. Down the beach is Pincher's Tiki Bar where you can enjoy a casual meal, live entertain- ment & dancing on the weekends. I look forward to having you as a guest again & thank you for the nice review.

Fantastic Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at Estero Beach and Tennis Club for the past several years and love its peaceful, family atmosphere. This is our first time to rent this condo and WE LOVED IT. This unit was clean, spacious, and beautifully decorated in Tommy Bahama style furnishings. The updated kitchen was fully stocked with lovely dishes, high-end appliances and quality cookware. Everything we needed...even dishtowels. Closets were filled with very nice bed linens, bath towels, and all the beach gear we couldn't bring with us. There were beach chairs, umbrellas, beach towels and even small coolers. This condo had a large balcony that looked out to the ocean... perfect for morning coffee, relaxing lunches and evening sunsets. As an added bonus, Estero Beach and Tennis Club is located across the street from Santini Plaza, a small shopping center filled with restaurants, shops, salons, and a fabulous farmers market. This entire area is spectacular and the condo was LOVELY!!! We have rebooked for next year and plan to vacation here often. The perfect getaway.

Updated and has everything one needs!

  • 5 of 5

We are spending a month in this condo from the middle of January to the middle of February. It looks even far better than the pictures indicate because the pictures of the updates are not yet on this site. We have been coming to EBT for many years, but this is the first time we have stayed here. We are planning on returning as it is modern, very clean and convenient to the sandy beach right in front of the condo. I cannot think of one thing this condo needs to make it better. First floor is great, and we can even see the sunsets from our balcony. The owner is a gem. We were fortunate to have met Cheryl as she was staying at EBT for a couple of weeks that we were here. I was so impressed when the first call she made to us she said, "Is there anything you need?" She really cares about her tenants, and wants us to enjoy our stay. Wonderful condo.

Owner's Response: Beverly & Chris, Thank you for your lovely review. It's really great when people appreciate my hard work on my condo renovation & the beautiful sunsets that my condo offers. I'm glad you're returning again next year & hope that we're on the beach at the same time again! Cheryl

The perfect vacation condo

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully updated condo with gorgeous beach and golf views. This was our third visit to Cheryl’s condo which is now remodeled with a new kitchen and new bath with a convenient walk in shower. The new mattress was very comfortable and the closet was well stocked with new linens. The condo was extremely clean and well maintained. The new Wi-Fi service in the condo was a nice surprise and as usual, we had everything we needed to be comfortable in the condo, as well as what we needed for the beach. We enjoyed the beautiful sunsets that this condo offers which faces directly west toward the gulf and the many restaurants within walking distance. This condo is perfect and we thank Cheryl for sharing it with us.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the lovely review. I'm so glad that you enjoyed my "new condo" and the views of the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. It sounds like you had a very nice time once again. You are like many of my guests that keep returning year after year and I'm looking forward to you coming back again next year. Cheryl

The condo has issues

  • 2 of 5

Bathroom door lock broke, imprisoning occupant for more than hour before repairman showed up. Spent rest of morning waiting for him to return with new lock. WIFI stopped working and not fixed despite complaints and hour on phone with internet provider. One roll of toilet paper and one trash bag for two adults for week. Hairdryer buried in utility closet. Frig loud and runs all night. No divider between bed and rest of studio condo. Polyester blend sheets not comfortable. No light in hall outside front door. Very close to trash chute which causes lot of noise early in morning. Someone with key opened front door early one morning, then went away when yelled at. Owner did not respond to email of complaints. Agency not helpful. Stay away.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry that this guest had comments & issues during his stay at my newly remodeled top to bottom condo. When this guest made his reservation, I gave him my cell # & asked him to call me if he had any problems, since I would be vacationing there at the same time. I never heard from him & I was not informed of any problems until after he was gone. I knew that "issues" would come up during his week starting with his ugly comments during the reservation process with my agent. It seems in every email & with his verbal comments, he had an issue with everything down to the light bulb in the common area which was replaced the next day. I strive to make every guest's stay as comfortable as possible & am very proud of my beautiful condo renova- tion. It has a new kitchen, complete with granite countertops, dishwasher, microwave, new dishes & a new dining set. The bathroom has been completely redone with a walk in tiled shower with bench/seat & a new vanity. There are new porcelain tiled floors throughout & all new doors. He mentioned not liking my sheets. There are 6 new sets of king sheets, including 3 sets which are 100% Egyptian cotton I'm sorry that he locked himself in the bathroom, but like in any home, malfunctions do happen. My rental agent responded the second it was reported. As for the WIFI internet, I pay for the service in the unit. If the service was down or fading in & out, that's because of the service provider. The handyman did get the internet working when he was there & reported that it was a user error. My renter was informed that there was internet available in the lobby. My internet is working fine now. My hair dryer was very visible on the hall closet shelf, not buried, & there is nothing wrong with the refrigerator, no unusual noise. My maintenance man knocked on the condo door, not knowing that it was occupied & because no one answered the door, he announced himself & opened the door. As pictures of my condo clearly show, there is no divider & there was no discussion of a divider. It's unfortunate that the renter was not satisfied with my condo, but I feel that his complaints were unjustified & beyond my control. This is a very popular condo, rents on a consistent basis & is in a wonder- ful complex.

Map

The complex is located directly across the street from Santini Marine Plaza, where there are numerous shops, restaurants, and attractions. (Including a drug store, book store, U.S. Post Office, hardware store, bank, marina w/boat rentals, executive golf course, and driving range) There are various cruises available to take for the day or night, fishing trips, and all kinds of water activities offered. Bird watching is a popular pastime due to the inlet preceding the Gulf. Close-by are Captiva and Sanibel islands, Naples, Miromar and Tanger Outlet Malls, and the Minnesota Twins and Boston Red Sox training camps are also located near Fort Myers. Local museums and festivals also assure for a fun day; but of course, if all else fails there is always the beach!

Other Activities: shopping, boating, kayaking, parasailing, wildlife viewing, golfing
