About the property

A Special Place… If you want to book without credit card fees, give me a call and we can arrange payment. 612-201-6958.

Experience a special place where the sand is sugar white and the palm trees gently sway in the warm gulf breeze. Located on some of the most pristine coastline in Florida, this will be your vacation to renew your mind and spirit. Enjoy the calming sound of the waves as they gently caress the shoreline. The days are filled with carefree sun drenched fun, while the sunsets illuminate the sky with a fiery brilliance unique to the West Coast. If you’re truly looking to get away, it doesn’t get any better than our little slice of heaven on Fort Myers Beach.

Our crystal-clear pool overlooks the white sand and turquoise waters of the Gulf. Take in a game of shuffleboard or just collapse into a chaise lounge and relax! Fire up one of our gas grills and enjoy a great barbecue with family and new friends. When you need a bit of shade just relax under the Gulf front Tiki Hut.

Ideal Fort Myers Beach Location….

Seaside only feels a million miles away from the everyday. We’re actually right in the heart of Fort Myers Beach. Conveniently located just across the street you’ll find a Publix Supermarket perfect for keeping your fridge full. Don’t feel like eating in? Superb dining is to be had at The Bayfront Bistro. Want to take a break from the beach? Boat rentals at Snook Bite Marina are also right across the street. The marina features boat rentals, kayak rentals as well as storage for your boat. The truth is you’ll be within walking distance to all the best Fort Myers has to offer, including shopping, dining and nightlife.

Convenient to restaurants, shops, movie theater and golf. Colonial Bank, Island Hair Gallery, 7-11 within a mile. Located at the middle of the island, this condo is the perfect retreat for couples and families. Close enough to water sports, fishing and shopping. A mile away is Charley's Boat House Grill which has been a local favorite for over 25 years. Also we are close to the Outrigger.

Forget your watch at home, bask in the sun, walk the beach, and enjoy the tropical flowers on Fort Myers Beach where tomorrow will be just as tough!

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 Fort Myers Beach

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This 2 BR, 2BA, condo is smack on the beach, facing the beach. Across the street from Publix and perfect. Had everything we needed for a great escape from reality.

Notes:
Fort Myers Beach: Welcome to the beautiful barrier islands of Fort Myers Beach-Estero Island and San Carlos Island – where the sun shines nearly every day and the average temperature is 74 degrees. Beaches are probably the No.1 attraction, with the turquoise blue to bright green waters of the Gulf of Mexico lapping at the silky, white sands and seashells – for the collector in everyone. Called the “world’s safest beach”, it’s an ideal site for family vacations, for there are no steep drop-offs, riptides or undertows. Everywhere you go, wildlife is abundant. Shore birds such as egrets,pelicans,spoonbills,seagulls and herons are found near every body of water, from the gulf to the back bay. Sometimes, even the bald eagle can be spotted soaring over our islands. Fishing and boating are popular pastimes for residents and visitors alike – there are even restaurants you can get to by boat for lunch on (or near) the high seas. Yes, the comforts of civilization are evident as well. The m

Cant wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Karen and Don's rental condo at Sea Side Sept 23-30. This is our second year staying in this condo at Fort Myers Beach. Taking a few steps out of the building and being able to be at the beach and a few steps across the street for convenience to Publix was just awesome for us. We spent many evenings watching the beautiful sunset and dolphins frolic in front of us. I hope to rent again next season.

We all enjoyed our stay at the Seaside Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the ocean view from the balcony! Enjoyed swimming in both the warm gulf water as well as the pool. The condo is very conveniently located right across the street from Publix where we picked up some delicious ribeye steaks that we cooked on the grills by the pool area. The condo was well furnished and had everything we needed. The owner, Karen, checked in with us throughout our stay to see if we needed anything.

Just what the doctor ordered

  • 5 of 5

We (my son, my sister and I) love Seaside 503. New owners have made some nice upgrades and are still working toward upgrading. The little grass strip just this side of the sand is perfect for reading and/or surf watching in the shade. Washer/dryer room at ground level suits us in a big way, as the cost is well worth not having to lug lots of clothes. Another big plus for owners -- NICE BEACH TOWELS. Leave yours at home. Everything you'd need is here -- cooler, sand chairs, complete cooking supplies. Publix across the street -- walking distance. Owners are very attentive to your needs. If you don't have something you need, they're a phone call away and are anxious to please. We'll be back for sure.

Wonderful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The Seaside condo was a wonderful choice for us from Ohio.

It was clean and sitting on the 5th floor; has wonderful view of the ocean/beach area right out the window from the Master Bedroom and living/kitchen area.

This is our second stay in the same Condo.

The owners did some great updates with some coastal décor. They were very helpful in questions etc.

We had everything we needed including beach towels and beach chairs.

A Publix is right across the street which made it very convenient to pick up a few things.

Another great thing was a lot of the same people from Ohio we met last year; were here again also. Which speaks well of the place.

It was like seeing your old friends once again.

We will definitely be back again next year to stay.

Thank You Don and Karen for a great stay.

Seaside apartments, Fort Myers Beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in apartment #503. A perfect place to stay for a family of four. Beautiful beach location with the added bonus of a pool. No need to cross a road or pack a bag! Publix supermarket across the street. Apartment has everything we needed including use of beach towels, chairs and umbrella. Just 30 minutes drive over the bridge to Sanibel Island. It was lovely to meet the owners who were contactable and very helpful.
