About the property

Let your cares drift as you listen to the waves and enjoy the breathtaking views from your 6th floor private condo. You don't face any other units that might interrupt your privacy. Wake up to the sights of the Gulf and the pristine 7 miles of white sand beach this paradise has to offer. On some mornings you will experience the wonder of a group of playful dolphins on their morning excursions. Generally, the pelicans are not far behind as they dive bomb the water for their breakfast. You might also see a flock of pink rosaete spoonbills as they arrive daily at dawn and dusk. Spectacular sunrises and sunsets await you in this remarkable tropical island setting.

The condo offers a clean refreshing environment. The bedroom features a king bed, wicker motif furniture, and tropical island decorations. All linens are provided. Beach towels, too. The eat-in kitchen has new appliances as of November 08', and is fully equipped with all utensils, dinner wear, cook wear, everything you need to enjoy 'Meals In'. The kitchen will have new and expanded cabinets, countertop, and dishwasher in May 10'. The living area has a 46' LCD TV, DVD, Telephone, Wireless Internet Connection, Air-conditioning, couch-hide a bed, and even a recliner for dad.

Our beach offers calm, warm Gulf water, and plenty of fine native white sand that is great for families as they enjoy building castles, swimming, reading, or just listening to the gentle waves as they meet the shore. Parasailing, jet ski Rental, and cabana rental are available. If you get thirsty or hungry, there is an outdoor restaurant just steps away from your playground. Shelling is very popular activity first thing in the morning. 'The earlier the better' is recommended so that you get your pick of these beauties.

When you're ready for an 'Evening Out', the Island offers many fine restaurants for your dining pleasure. You might walk across the street to the Plaza or take the 25 cent trolley to 'Town Center'. Enjoy the beautiful weather as you stroll to the restaurant of your choice. Many offer live music and the finest of seafood and steaks the region has to offer. Enjoy your stay with us!

Wonderful condo overlooking Estero Lagoon

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this condo for a week in early December. It provided good space and comfort for the two of us. The descriptions on VRBO were completely accurate - it more than met our expectations. We loved the balcony overlooking the water - we are birders and could see what was out there before going down. We could be on the beach in two minutes and walk for a long way in either direction!

The condo was well maintained, well furnished and well equipped. We cooked at home the entire time and found the kitchen excellent. A good supermarket was nearby and a small farmer's market just across the street. We did visit a number of other beaches and birding areas - the region has a lot to offer and early December is not yet the busy season so driving around is easy. We would definitely recommend this condo and the area to anyone and we hope to return.

We have stayed in this complex before and keep coming back. This unit has a wonderful view of the ocean, pool and sunsets. It would have been nice to have 2 pool keys and proper beach chairs.

The property landscaping is lovely. A few things seem to be going, elevator and pool heater. Took a long time to fix so we miss out when we are paying a lot.

Owner's Response: The property is lovely. The pool and beautiful grounds are a real focal point of the condo development. The pool are all equipment were extensively refurbished and equipment replaced about three years ago. All equipment such as the pool and elevators are all items that are under annual maintenance contracts, State of Florida compliance and inspection, and are standard annual budget items. The association provides for the enjoyment and care free use of all our facility amenities. Our condo is professionally managed on a local basis. If any housekeeping issue is noted, it will be taken care of immediately with a simple phone call. Our condo is professionally cleaned after every client. If the cleaners need return, they will return immediately to take care of you. The bed is intentionally firm. I have had multiple back surgeries and really need a firm mattress. If the bed were soft, it would be replaced. I know some people like a soft bed, however, I would be miserable for me without firm support.

My granddaughter and I arrived May 7th and we are so glad we are staying for 2 weeks. I have come down annually to Fort Myers beach for the last 6 years and this is the first time I am staying on this end of the island. This unit is perfect and has the most expansive view of the Gulf and beautiful pool. The sunsets from our balcony are the best I have ever seen. The moon has been shining on the water every night and the lights from Sanibel and Capitiva in the background are breathtaking. The condo is clean and the kitchen seems new. It is more spacious than the pictures show. The bathroom is very large. I have not been able to get past the mangroves to walk the beach but I am told it I must be trying when the tide is up. I will keep trying. I have also met several people who live here and they are very friendly and welcoming.
