About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

This condominium is a dream vacation for two people, two adults, who want to get away and relax by the ocean side, either on the balcony or on the white sandy beach, in beach chairs with umbrella or leisurely walks. You can get lost in the moment, feel the moist sand between your toes, and enjoy the peacefulness of the Gulf of Mexico rippling ever so gently to the shore. You may want to have a barbecue, there are two grills by the pool just waiting for those steaks or hot dogs and hamburgers, whatever whets your appetite.

Whatever your lifestyle you can find it at Fort Myers Beach. Estero Beach Club is the best of Fort Myers Beach with it's wide sandy beaches, secluded within the complex itself or entertainment is within walking distance.

Keywords: Overlooks the Beach and Gulf of Mexico.

No better location!

About Glenna Goodwin-Rummel

Hello, I am Glenna Goodwin and I want to share with you a beautiful story. I have married again and my sadness has turned to joy. My husband and I both lost our spouses within a month of each other. We both had been married over 50 years. We each had wonderful marriages and now we were sad and lonely and the worst part was that no one needed us anymore. Even though we lived in the same condominium complex Roger and I had never met. One evening we each decided to go to an event at our clubhouse just to be with people, we happened to sit at the same table and someone introduced us. About a week later I saw Roger at the pool in our area and he said he would like to get to know me and I said, 'that would be nice'. We went for coffee and talked for over 2 hrs., found out we were very compatible, started seeing each other and March 10, 2012 we were married on Fort Myers Beach, with the sun setting and the sand between our toes and with our families all around us we committed the rest of our lives to each other. .

Glenna Goodwin-Rummel purchased this condo in 2010

Why Glenna Goodwin-Rummel chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We have always liked Fort Myers Beach, it has white sugar sand, wide beaches and rippling waves that soothe the soul. We live in Fort Myers and often rented on Fort Myers Beach. We decided to buy a rental condo and use it ourselves when we could. We like being on the beach in the Summer, it's cooler than inland and breezy. We looked for a year at all the different condominium's and decided we only wanted at Estero Beach Club. It is well maintained and managed, it's a very tropical setting. The sparkling pool is at the edge of the beach, unlike many other condominium pools. It's a great place to take a drink at sunset and enjoy the spectacular colors, better than any fireworks. Since there was just my husband and myself we only needed one bedroom but we wanted it to be spacious and nice for ourselves when we can come and our many guests who rent and come back year after year.

What makes this condo unique

Estero Beach Condo #403 is located on the 4th floor of a small complex, only 24 condo's in our building. Soon after we bought in 2010 we put in a beautiful new kitchen with granite counter tops, sparkling white cabinets, new appliance's, even a dishwasher! The balcony has a table with 4 chairs and there is a lounge chair, the view couldn't be better because it sits directly on the Beach overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.

We want you to come and enjoy it, we know you'll want to come back.

Very nice place to stay on Ft Myers, Beach

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this Complex for 3 years. Glenna's Condo is on the 4th Floor and is very nice and clean. The Furniture is very comfortable, too. Glenna (The Owner) has everything that you need there to make yourself at home including; Books to read, adult games, Wifi-Internet, pool noodles, beach towels, chairs and even umbrellas. While sitting out on the Lanai, you can even see Dolphins swim by in the early morning hours. So, you just have to bring your clothes/suitcase and take a short trip across the street to the Grocery store, or there are plenty of good Restaurants which are located on the Beach and over the Bridge, near the Marinas. Walmart, Target and Dollar Bills are very close too. Glenna is a very sweet Lady and will make sure that you stay is a very pleasant one. Management is excellent and is onsite whenever you need them, too. The whole complex, heated pool, hot tub, laundry rooms and the Landscaping (Grounds) are very well kept up. I have been coming down to Ft. Myers Beach for over 26 years and I love and enjoy this complex very much and I'm always excited to return.

Best place on Ft Myers Beach

  • 5 of 5

We stumbled across the condo 5 years ago have come back ever since. The pictures do not do it justice. Glenna has added some new furniture inside and on the balcony. It sits right on the beach with everything you need. Just bring yourself she has everything else. Once we arrive we never drove our car. Everything is within walking distance. Glenna is wonderful to work with and the front office are also great people. Before we found this condo we stayed at several other locations but this place is the best on the beach. We have been coming back for 5 years and plan on many more. If you come here once you will want to return.

Owner's Response: Dear valued guests, Thank you so very much for your positive comments about the area of Fort Myers Beach, Estero Beach Club and my condo #403. It is my hope that all of my guests will enjoy their vacation to the fullest and I will do whatever it takes within my abilities to make that happen. Thank you for reminding me that I must update the photos so prospective guests can get a better idea of where they will be staying and what they can expect. I don't crowd the condo with people, it's ideal for two people who want to get away for a relaxing vacation at the beach. I appeciate you taking the time to write a nice review and look forward to your return next year. Some of my guests come twice a year. My Best to You, Glenna Goodwin, owner

Couple's Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were not fortunate enough to have a honeymoon. Fifteen years later we left the kids at home and took a week's vacation. Glenna was a doll to work with via email; answered my questions and was sincere in wanting us to enjoy ourselves. The first day it rained so we headed out to the flea market. There are plenty of recreational places with reasonable rates for tourists to enjoy within an hour's drive. The time we spent in the condo was relaxing. Sitting on the lanai listening to the surf and the birds with a cup of coffee was wonderful. We took advantage of the beach chairs, towels and umbrellas that were provided and spent a day at the beach. On Friday, the day before we left, I did our laundry in the laundry room on the first floor while we hung out at the pool. Cable channels are a bit limited, but there is something for everyone. Wifi was free and kept me in touch with the kids' teachers. I don't know when I'll have the chance to escape again, but I will definitely recommend this condo to family and friends.

Owner's Response: Dear Katrina, Thank you so very much for the nice review. When you first arrived at my condo #403 you sent me an email saying it was raining but it was still great to be there. We need more people like you in this world who express good thoughts that make others feel appreciated. I'm so happy you and your husband got to enjoy a belated honeymoon and I sure do hope you get to come back. Blessings, Glenna Goodwin

Maybe look for a better value elsewhere

  • 2 of 5

My wife and I have stayed in vacation rentals many times all over the world, including many beach-front condo rentals all along the gulf coast. We're used to how vacation rentals directly from owners normally work. We understand they aren't hotels, that things come up, and sometimes, especially internationally, that there may exist some oddities with the property. We're always okay with these things, and never really write reviews, because we understand the nature of these places. But in the US, along the gulf, all the condos look the same, and you just pick the area and size you want. I think there are some important issues to note so that other renters can make a more informed decision.

Nothing about this rental is horrible, in fact, there are many positives. But it didn't live up to our expectations, or experience with similar properties. The little things add up.

The Good: Great location. Right on the beach in a slightly quieter section. Topp's grocery nearby. The beach wasn't crowded. The common areas were nice, well kept, clean. Not huge and fancy, but nice and quiet. The condo layout is normal; rooms are a nice size. Gas grills by the pool.

The Weird: Condo is carpeted. This strikes me as strange, especially on the beach. I don't recall ever seeing a beach front property that has carpet. Some small stains, but nothing terrible. No cleaning fee, but you pay an application fee to the property. Lightswitches that did nothing, or turned off outlets in other rooms. The fans are wired down the walls, through plastic junctions, and plugged in with cutoff extension cords.

The Bad: Internet never worked. Emails to Glenna were answered only with call-backs from the tech support people. I tried for hours, but I’m on vacation... Dishwasher never worked; didn’t notice until the end of the week. It just churned, groaned, but no water went in it. Furnishing all ‘cheap’, including electrical outlets, fixtures, furniture, beach gear, kitchen, etc. Nothing wrong with this, but it's not what I would expect for this area. No cutting board or decent knife - annoying. There’s not a lounge chair for the balcony as stated in the review. The beach view in the pictures isn’t from this condo - view is more limited in this property. Condo information and local guides were outdated by years - we left new ones. Some of the lights didn't work, or missing bulbs.

Recommendation: Look elsewhere - There are better options.

Owner's Response: First of all, I want to say I am truly sorry this guest's vacation was less than he expected. I want all of my guests to have the best possible vacation and if something about my condo is keeping that from happening then I want to know about it so I can fix it if at all possible. 5 years ago, when we bought this condo, we had a whole new kitchen put in, new refrigerator, new cabinets with granite counter tops with a nice granite cutting board. Yes, it was there for this guest. The lead picture in the VRBO advertising is the exact view you see from the balcony of this condo. I don't know of a better location on all of Fort Myers Beach. Many guests return year after year, recently I told one of them that it would be nicer when they come again because I was having all new tile, new carpet in the bedroom and some new furniture put in. He said, "we have liked it the way it is."

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our weeks stay in your beuatiful condo this April. We enjoyed the location and the amenities. It's a beautiful spot and offers everything you would want or need for a vacation from home. Glenna, you were also very helpful with any questions I had on the rental before arrival. This was our first time vacationing at Ft. Myers Beach and we will be returning.

Edison's home, laboratory and magnificent landscaping including a spectacular Banyan tree. This is on the way to downtown Fort Myers, it is uniquely historic, sits along the Caloosahatchee River, offers museums, theaters, wonderful restaurants and river walks, etc.

The road to the Islands of Sanibel and Captiva is very scenic, there is an Outlet Mall on the way. Lots of tropical shopping. The Mucky Duck is a favorite restaurant in Captiva. Go and Expore!
