We also have a great comfortable leather chair with ottoman , 4 beach towels, sun umbrella, beach chairs, and a fully furnished kitchen installed with granite counters in 2016.

The master bedroom has a Serta Pillow Top king bed, lots of drawer space, and connects to a private full bath, a large walk-in closet, and the screened lanai. One can choose to watch a favorite TV show on the Large Flat Screen TV from the bed along with watching the magnificent sunset over the water with Sanibel Island in the background. The private lanai also connects to the living room and is equipped to accommodate family dinners or just relaxing on the couchto watch the kids play on the grassy lawn, the sand, or the ocean. The guest/children’s/grandma room is equipped with comfortable twin beds and lots of drawer and closet space and is comfortably located to access the second full bath easily.

Free high speed wireless internet is right in our condo to use with your personal computer, and other devices or there is free use of a computer/internet in the office . There are 3 Sony Bravia Flat Screen TV's and 3 DVD’s. A large DVD library is ALSO in our unit for all family ages.

New interior doors were installed along with all new stainless appliances and garbage disposal this year..... so updating continues to offer the best we can for our unit.

Smugglers Cove has been voted the Best Condo Complex on the beach for 15 years straight. All new construction of pavers, new railings and screens along with new outside walls and paint have been implimented. It would be hard to beat the mid island location and amenities that come with your visit. Smugglers Cove boasts a very large heated swimming pool, new putting green, and shuffleboard courts and as well as lots of tiki huts and trees for your shade enjoyment near the water. There is plenty of grassy areas to throw balls or relax on the provided loungers. The complex also has gas grills with a picnic area, an extremely large clean modern laundry facility and community rooms to use for large groups/parties .

A major grocery store (not just a quick stop) is just 3 blocks away…an easy walk or drive. The island trolley costs 75 cents and runs all day for your enjoyment of the shopping, the restaurants, the public golf course, or the night life. Close by you’ll find fishing and boat, jet ski and moped rentals. A great Pirate Ship also docks nearby for a wonderful adventure for the little ones! Spring training for the Boston Red Socks and the Minnesota Twins is also in close proximity._

Guestbook comments from the owner

This condo is awesome.. Perfect space & great location in fact, it was close to everything without the congestion. We loved our stay, but with the weather was better (thanks to Tropical Storm Amanda). We will be back at some point.

We escaped the cold Northeast and arrived in paradise! The condo is beautiful, better than the pictures. We had all the supplies we needed - I cooked a variety of breakfasts every morning. The beach was right there and we had many relaxing (or invigorating) walks. Sunsets were beautiful. We had three late teen-aged boys with us and they had a great time riding their bikes to Time Square, sometimes several times per day. We slept with the sliders to our master bedroom and the living room (one son was on the very comfortable pullout) open most nights to hear the surf. This spot is a great spot to get to all that Southwest Florida has to offer, although I would recommend heading south to exit through Bonita Springs rather than Time Square. We rented a car and having a dedicated spot was nice. The Publix is within walking/biking distance. I would recommend the Bayfront Bistro, just beyond Publix, for lunch, and Heidi's Bistro (German) for dinner, which was outstanding. I didn't think I would like German food so much but it was delicious!

Everything we'd hoped for and more!

  • 5 of 5

If you like what you see in the pictures and read in the description, you will not be disappointed. This is a beautiful very well kept condo that had great space for our family of 5, which includes 2 adults and 3 kids (ages 13, 10, & 8). We utilized much that was provided in the condo - beach towels, sand toys, beach chairs, beach mats, beach umbrella, map in the walk in closet, hangers, dishes, hair dryer, laundry many extras that made our stay easier and fun. We didn't feel the need to dine out much, because the screened in patio granted us a great view for every meal. We did grill there on the condo grounds, and that was the perfect setting. If you want to eat out there are many options. The views are amazing, and we could enjoy them from the master bedroom, the patio, the living room, the kitchen, the lawn right below our balcony, and the grilling area. We had great weather. After day one we turned off the air conditioning and took advantage of the breeze that passed right through the condo. That allowed us to keep the master bedroom window open to fall asleep and wake up to the sounds of the ocean each day. A real treat for someone from Ohio! Shelling on the beach right in front of us provided a wide array of treasures that we had to make room for in the suitcase before flying home. We were also treated to seeing dolphins in the water right in front of the complex every day. Every day! Not sure if that happens year round, but it delighted us each time. We like the location - a few miles south of the "busy" area of beach shops, restaurants, public beach, and long pier. This condo's neighbors are more residential, and it is a peaceful safe feeling area for a family. We had a wonderful time and recommend this rental very highly.

best vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

we were so pleased with your condo, it was everything the listing description said and more. We enjoyed watching the dolphins go by every morning, that was an added bonus. The condo was very clean and everything was in very good condition. The entire building is very well maintained, the elevator was always clean, the stairwells were swept clean of sand. It was wonderful being able to walk to the grocery store. It was also wonderful being at the quieter end of the Island. We would love to come back sometime in the future.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This past May my husband, son and his girlfriend spent a relaxing, enjoyable vacation in this condo. We were pleasantly pleased when we arrived and saw the condo. The description and photos were accurate and It had everything we needed. It was comfortable, clean, the views were awesome with amazing sunsets every night, and listening to the waves was the perfect way to end the night. The location is great, close to restaurants, water activities and the market. This was a perfect beach vacation. Thanks for the use of your condo...and we hope to return again!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our two kids (girl 14 and boy 9) just spent a wonderful week in 1B5! Everything was clean and ready for use. The view was great and the sound of the ocean was very relaxing at night. My son loved the heated pool and was in it several times over the week. The location is ideal for proximity to a very nice grocery store. I walked there one morning, but recommend driving if carrying very much back! We enjoyed all of the wonderful amenities in the kitchen, as well as using the gas grills on the patio by the beach. It was great watching the sunset over the ocean while grilling our steaks! The beach was wonderful for finding small (and sometimes larger) sea shells. Some of the best shells we found all along the beach were found right in front of Smuggler's Cove. We highly recommend this unit and plan to return next year!

First Time to Ft. Myers Beach

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our visit and spent most of our time on the beautiful beach or in the pool. What a location.....what a facility......and what a well-appointed condo. We couldn't have been happier and it was the perfect spot for our 20 month grandson to enjoy his first experience at a beach. It was so safe and clean. The property was exceptionally well maintained - the staff should be praised for their dedication to cleanliness and upkeep. We have already booked for next year and look forward to another great stay. Also should note that we operated the first week without a car, using the Trollee and we managed just fine. Very convenient and easy. Sunsets, dolphins, pelicans, sandpipers - so much to enjoy from the perfect lanai. Loved everything. Thank you for sharing this great facility.
