About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

NOTE: If you see another condo available at Mandolin Bay with a super cheap avg. nightly rate, it is because it is quoting their Off-Season Rates and not their In-Season Rates. They have not entered their In-Season Rates for 2018. Completely Misleading! Please pay attention to details!

Relaxation, palm trees, sun, good times. These are the things that await your arrival at our Mandolin Bay Villa. We are located at one of the best spots in all of South Ft. Myers. Why? We are close not only to the beaches, but to everything you would want to do. Some of these activities include: Shopping; Restaurants for all budgets and tastes; Golfing - Public and Private; Sidewalks that go everywhere for the walking enthusiast; Charter boats for fishing, sightseeing, dolphin/manatee watching, dinner; Shelling; Museums; The spectacular Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge; Marinas; Parasailing; Jet ski, Canoe, kayak and boat rentals; Churches of all denominations; and Spring baseball training games of the Minnesota Twins, Boston Red Sox and the Tampa Bay Rays. The local public library is new and has a wonderful selection of books, videos, newspapers, and magazines.

There are plenty of other activities if you want to go for a short drive. For instance, if you want to see alligators, Everglades City on the edge of the Everglades National Park is approx. a 1 1/2 drive. Also the Key West Express boat picks up passengers at Ft. Myers Beach, zips down to Key West, allows you to see the sights such as the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum and many others, and then zips you back to Ft. Myers Beach before the end of the day!

This newer first floor condominium is 1,375 square feet of luxury located in a gated community. It is fully furnished featuring Italian tile in the dining and living room areas and features a palm tree theme. The Master Bedroom with plush carpeting features a queen size bed, reading nook with a comfortable chair and ottoman, cable TV, and two large walk in closets. The luxurious Master bath has a large tiled walk-in shower.

The second bedroom also has plush carpeting with two twin beds and a large closet. The second bathroom has a fully stocked linen closet, and shower/tub.

The laundry area includes a full size washer and dryer, ironing board and iron.

Enjoy your time and the view on the lanai. Perfect time for this is both in the morning and early evening. Also for your entertainment, besides the cable TV and VHS/DVD player, is a CD player with AM/FM radio, board/card games, puzzles, and a deck of cards. The club house features the inviting pool with lounging chairs, hot tub, fitness center, pool table, book library, cable TV, and WI-FI internet service. Swimming towels and pool floats/toys are available for your use in our condo.

Local phone service is provided along with a 1 car garage, a parking space directly in front of condo and plenty of visitor spaces.

Exact Mileage per Mapquest from Mandolin Bay Villas to: Ft. Myers Beach – 4.75; Sanibel Island Causeway – 3; Captiva Island (must go through Sanibel to get here) – 11.

As of 02/08/17: I have just relisted my property on VRBO after months being off the site due to reservations for In-Season having been booked 2 years in advance. Previously I had been off VRBO for 18 months for the same reason. That is why I do not have current reviews. The condo books fast and early. If you have any questions, please email me. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Please view the video for a current 2017 view of our condo!

Discount offered for multi-month booking and is preferred! Also, if you do not want to pay HomeAway/VRBO's service fee they charge for online booking, email me and let me know and I can arrange for you to pay by personal check and avoid their service fee. The choice is yours!

What makes this condo unique

Location, location, location!!! We fell in love with this condo as soon as we saw it! The best part is that it is located very close to a number of different beaches. Personally, we enjoy Fort Myers Beach along with Sanibel's Light House Beach, but my favorite is Turner Beach located on Captiva Island. There are so many things to do in and around Fort Myers and this condo is centrally located to most if not all of them. If you are active, biking, walking, golfing and swimming will be part of your routine here. If not, you can enjoy reading, dinner theaters, the sun, the beach, baseball, and shopping to name a few. I hope you are able to visit soon!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your condo is set up extremely well with just about everything that's needed. We thoroughly enjoyed your condo. It is very comfortable, was very clean, and made our stay very enjoyable!

Thank you so much for renting to us and I'm sure if we need a place in the future we'll be in contact with you!

Good Experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for the month of January and found this to be an ideal location. The condo was clean, up to date and well appointed. I used the blender every other day for my protein shakes. I was pleased that the kitchen had so many things to make cooking easier. This was the year for rainy weather in January, so we didn't get to meet the neighbors. We would definitely recommend this unit. The owners were very helpful in answering questions and making recommendations for the area.

Mandolin Bay Condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo was everything it was advertised to be. The unit was spotlessly clean, tastefully furnished and very well equipped with everything you might need. The owner was very patient and helpful in answering our questions and providing information prior to arrival and nothing went wrong during our stay. The owner provided a very comprehensive folder of local information on activities, shopping, points of interest, etc. The shared facilities (pool and clubhouse) were wonderful and the other residends were friendly and welcoming.

Would recommend highly for a vacation rental in SW Florida.

We stayed in this condo for the month of March. The unit was exactly as described on the website. It was very clean, neat, nicely decorated and the beds and furniture were comfortable. The kitchen had everything you could need or want for cooking and serving meals. The owners have thought of everything from beach chairs to pool toys. You even have a garage to park your car. There is an information manual in the condo which I found very helpful with information regarding local attractions and how to get to the hospital. Nothing was left to chance. Rita was very helpful and answered any questions we had. The location is awesome, handy to beaches, dining, shopping, and even Curves! The pool, clubhouse and exercise room were all very well maintained and beautiful. I would recommend this condo to anyone looking to stay in the Fort Myers area.

Great place, great owners

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many VRBO places over the years but this one is special. The amenities are many; i.e. printer avail for computer use, and the cabinets have many things that are available to the renters. The unit was immaculately cleaned which we are always impressed with. And Rita the owner is on top of everything if something comes up that is unexpected. The location is so convenient to everything; beaches, restaurants and the many sites to see.

We will be coming back next year. Thank you Rita for sharing your home in the south.
