About Don and Karen Ostendorf
We bought this condo because we know that visitors to the beach want to see the water 24/7. The beach is 7 miles of nice sand and I love to have a reason to go the beach every day.
Don and Karen Ostendorf purchased this Condo in 2017
Why Don and Karen Ostendorf chose Mid Island
I think the weather was the deciding factor. We are from the Midwest and here in Minnesota, summer is too short. The flowers and the palm trees are so therapeutic that we couldn't resist. We also like the mid-island location as we can access the South end bridge or the North end bridge so it is very convenient.
What makes this Condo unique
We have all the comforts of home. We like to think that we have covered all the details and we know our guests appreciate the amenities that we have to make their vacation special. Karen, I stayed at your Beach Bungalow at beautiful Ft. Myers Beach the first week of March. I'm an amateur photographer and took about 400 photos while I was there, one of which I submitted to the Star Tribune website for their gallery of vacation photos. Well, they printed it in the Travel Section of yesterday's paper (Sunday May 17th). It made me very happy to be able to share my vacation memories with the paper's readers. Here's a copy for your enjoyment. Feel free to use it anyway you wish to market your wonderful beach house.

Happy to have found this condo!Everything that was convenient to us (2 couples), 2/2, was booked. Lucky enough Karen's beach condo was available. I would rate her as a super hostess. We received all the information timely and accurately. Of course she was a call away if we needed anything. But there was no need. Once we entered the condo, we were surprised to find that it's exactly as listed. It's on the 5th floor, there's an elevator and it has valet carts. The condo is very clean and it had all the amenities. The decor is beachy and tastefully done. It has a screened lanai with beach view. The pool and grounds were well kept. The beach and pool areas have nice beach loungers. Imagine sitting on the loungers under a coconut tree and just enjoying the wonderful sea breeze. Amazing!!! I must also mention that the property has various barbecues which are very clean. The area is safe....I would take early morning walks and collect sea shells. There's also a Publix across the street, no need to drive. I highly recommend this condo...we're certainly returning next year. Enjoy😁�
Thank you for being great guests.

We had three nights stay at the apartment which was litterally feets away from the beach.
An Publix was 2 minutes away. It cost about $8,50 to go to the nearest city by the bridge with Uber, which was cosey and nice.
The kitchen was fully equipment and same with beachgears.
We thought we could get the sunset from the balcony but now in june it seams to be more up north so we missed that part.
The communication with Karen was short, not very welcoming but correct and informative.
Overall a nice stay!
Thank you for choosing us for your vacation.
This condo was great; very clean and all the things you need for the beach. The owner, Karen was attentive too; you can reach her by text and she responds right away. Having the Publix across the street is convenient too.
You won't be disappointed in this condo or your stay at Fort Meyers Beach.
We loved having you as our guests and sharing our little piece of paradise.

Great stay with amazing views!
We had a great time staying at this condo. Our kids loved the pool and the location is amazing. The owner reached out to us once we arrived to make sure everything was in good shape!
So glad you enjoyed your beach vacation. Sunsets, dolphins, and sunshine will be waiting for your return.

Wonderful Getaway Spot

Karen and Don,
Thank you so much for renting the beach house. We loved our stay in FMB and look forward to a return visit in December. While we were in Florida we looked at buying a home in Fort Myers and to become full time residents
