Overview

Fort Myers Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

11th floor beachfront, Condo, 1 Bedroom+Convertible bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Be sure to check out our website link to FloridaBeachSunset given way down (just above the pictures) in the 'Links To More Information' section just above the photos. We have a LOT of information there that we can't fit here, and would love for you to see it. We want to make sure you have no questions or surprises about our FloridaBeachSunset home and our website will hopefully make you feel very comfortable about choosing us! FloridaBeachSunset!

It's all about the view! The view from our vacation home (yes, we are the actual owners and not a management company) can't be beat! You have direct views of the Gulf and the beach from every single window, which is going to give you memories of your time in Fort Myers Beach that you will talk about forever.

Our non-smoking corner unit condo is perfectly located to show you beautiful sunsets year around. And, being on the eleventh floor gives you a bird's eye view that you just can't get from the lower floors.

Our home has been professionally decorated with a tropical theme, and the use of large wall mirrors brings the tranquil gulf views into all areas of the home. To release your inner chef, the updated kitchen is fully-equipped with new appliances (including a dishwasher!). Our home accommodates 2-4 people on the king-sized bed and the queen-sized sleeper sofa (which is the most comfortable sleeper sofa we've ever seen). There is a 40 inch flat screen TV in the main room with an exquisite 1080p high definition signal (this is an upgrade above what most of the units in our complex have), and a 26 inch flat screen TV in the bedroom. There is a sliding door that you can close between the bedroom and the main room for privacy, if needed. All linens are provided except for beach towels.

We realize that sometimes you have to be 'in touch', even on vacation. For this reason, we have high speed internet/WiFi in our home free for you to use. The condo complex also has WiFi available down in the lobby area, but most of the condos don't have it 'in the home'. Ours does!

The open air balcony/lanai invites you to relax as you watch the dolphins, many coastal birds, or fantastic sunsets or just listen to the rhythm of the waves. We are located on the tranquil South end of Fort Myers Beach on the World's Safest Beach; shallow waters with no undertow makes it great for swimming as well as shelling.

Enjoy the 10 acres of beautiful tropically landscaped common area which provides 4 clay tennis courts, a large climate controlled heated pool, shuffle board, gas grills, as well as many sunning areas with lounge chairs; there is still room for kite flying on those ocean breezy days. Laundry is also provided on site for your convenience.

If you want to eat out, there are many great places to dine right across the street or within a short walking distance. Other things very close include a bank, boutique and gift shops, a large drug store with many grocery staple items, post office, marina with boat rentals, an ice cream shop and more. An 18 hole public golf course is only a block away, and there is a dinner movie theater just a few blocks away. The island trolley can be caught across the street to take you to the North end to 'the action' of Time Square or Bowditch Park for only a small charge. The same trolley also goes south to Lovers Key State Park and Bonita Springs. Fort Myers Beach is centrally located, only minutes to Naples and Marco Island to the South and Sanibel and Captiva to the North.

WE KEEP OUR AVAILABILITY CALENDAR EXTREMELY UP TO DATE. PLEASE CHECK IT BEFORE SENDING A QUOTE REQUEST. THANKS!

Our condo is very clean and comfortable with the home-away-from-home feel. We have a professional onsite caretaker, so you can have a worry free, relaxing vacation. Whether you are a 'snowbird' looking for a place to land, a 'romantic' looking for that special place to propose marriage or enjoy a 'second' honeymoon, or simply looking for a comfortable vacation home with miles of white sandy beaches and tropical breezes that will sooth your soul, WE ARE THE CONDO FOR YOU. Give us a try and you will fall in love with our home!

Be sure to check out our website, FloridaBeachSunset, listed down below the Rates in the 'Links To More Information' section (just above the Photos). We have a bunch of additional pictures, full sized video, and a lot more there. It will be worth your visit.

Here are some rough guidelines on Rates (and we would love to provide you with a custom quote, available at our website):

November - January $780 to $1,110 per week

February - April $910 to $1,390 per week

May - July $600 to $910 per week

August - October $470 to $740 per week

There is an $84.80 departure cleaning fee that we collect on behalf of our cleaning crew, and 11% tax added to all bookings. There is a holding deposit (that will become a refundable damage deposit upon your arrival at our home) that will be returned after a successful departure cleaning/inventory.

About Kirby and Mariya Vandivort

We are a midwestern couple that normally enjoy the flat cornfields of Illinois, but we love to get away when we can. We personally manage our vacation home and look forward to sharing it with you!

Kirby and Mariya Vandivort purchased this condo in 2011

Why Kirby and Mariya Vandivort chose Fort Myers Beach

We researched a million different places (slight exaggeration) , and Fort Myers Beach is where we wanted to be. It's warm enough on The Beach to enjoy winter here, but the cool breezes off the Gulf make summer extremely enjoyable as well. And, the other seasons (spring and autumn) are great, too, because the weather is excellent, and there aren't any crowds.

What makes this condo unique

The views here are absolutely stunning. We looked at a bunch of different properties (no exaggeration) and this one won... because of the view. Location, location, location. We are up high enough, on the 11th floor, that we can see beautiful sunsets, and the wide side of the balcony/lanai on our condo faces northwest, right towards the widest beach on the island. The end of the balcony faces southwest, so we get to see beautiful sunsets regardless of what time of year it is.

Also, as you can see on the map, our condo is on the southern end of the island, which is definitely the 'quieter' end. We really like this, and it is just one of the things that makes us want to go back again and again and again.

Beautiful View, Clean and Simple

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful, relaxing time at this property. It was far enough away from alot of the craziness of Ft. Myers beach with an awesome view. We had everything we needed and enjoyed the entire week just relaxing. It was clean and everything we expected!

Relaxing week at the beach

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I planned a last minute week vacation to Florida. Owners were very pleasant and condo was perfect for our stay. The view from the condo is wonderful. The location and complex are very nice, peaceful and relaxing yet convenient to just about everything. Every night we slept with the windows open and enjoyed the sounds of the waves. Usually you feel like your week of vacation flies by but we both agree that it seemed longer than a week and was completely relaxing. Just what we needed! We are already looking forward to our next stay.

Another great week at EB&T

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I frequently stay at EB&T. We like it, because it is at the quiet end of the beach (not near Times Square or the public beach access), but you can walk to a 7-11, CVS, Pinchers and a small plaza with an ice cream shop, a few restaurants/bars, shops and a little marina. You can take the trolley or drive down to the other end, but the trolley does not run late at night. We normally stay in a different unit, but it was unavailable so we picked this one instead.We were so glad we did. It was a great choice. As with all units at EB&T, the units is a one bedroom/studio, but this one felt nice and roomy for two people. They have just the right amount of nice quality furniture to make it comfy without feeling crowded. I loved the chair in the living room with the foot stool. I also liked having a full size sofa and a table with four chairs rather than small scale furniture like some have. The small cabinet with countertop was a nice touch for the coffee pot and toaster. The decor is nice and neutral. They had everything we wanted and needed for the week. The air conditioning worked great, but we really liked having the two ceiling fans to circulate the air throughout the condo. The view from inside the condo and the balcony is a show stopper. We just loved it. We also liked how the sun was somewhat blocked during the hottest part of the day, because of the way the unit/balcony is situated. You have a great view of the sunsets. This condo is a keeper and we will definitely rent it again. Kirby was very responsive and easy to rent off of. We really didn't feel like anything else was needed, but if I had to come up with a wish list, I would include a lighted makeup mirror for the desk and beach towels I understand why beach towels are not provided, but with luggage weight limits, we didn't want to weigh our bags down with beach towels. Another idea that you may want to consider that we have seen in other condos is a take it/leave it tote, pantry, etc.It is an area where travelers can leave laundry soap, fabric softener, shampoo, shaving cream, lotion, aloe, coffee, spices, bottled water, whatever they don't use and is not perishable rather than throwing it away. When you fly it is hard to bring everything or take it home once you buy it and it seems wasteful to throw it all away. Again everything was great. We loved it. We hope to be back real soon.

Terrific View and location but worn and dirty!

  • 2 of 5

This is a business! Don't be fooled by the "sharing our home" shtick!

A very disappointing arrival as we were greeted with a dirty floor, food stains everywhere, worn out and dirty carpeting and furniture, dirty dishes put away in the cupboards and drawers and one very worn out bed! So we spent too much of our first day's vacation time, cleaning! The owners offered to send the cleaner back in but we opted to clean ourselves...she didn't appear to be very good at it! Not helpful!

And then the noise started...the balconys in this building were being refinished, starting adjacent to us! Again the owners were not helpful!

EB&T is a terrific complex with many exceptional condos available. We stayed an additional week in another place. It was terrific - clean, well equipped and an owner who couldn't do enough for us!

It's all about the view!

  • 5 of 5

The view is nothing short of spectacular! From this vantage point you get a true sense of how vast the waters are which can be both humbling and comforting. You feel small and yet, at the same time, feel a part of something much bigger than you are. It was a great week. The Vandivorts are tremendous hosts, clearly involved in and concerned about the comfort of their guests. I recommend them highly!

Fantastic View and Convenient Location

  • 5 of 5

The views from the balcony were spectacular. We saw dolphins every morning and sunsets at the end of each day. The condo was well-appointed and the neighbors super friendly. We very much enjoyed The Sandbar restaurant across the street in Santini Plaza (lots of fun on Football Saturday!) and the Farmer's Market on Tuesday morning. I especially liked the close proximity to Lover's Key State Park; a great destination for a morning bike ride or an invigorating walk on the beach. Lovely vacation!

Owner's Response: We're glad you enjoyed the view, and we also thank you very much for your patience when the building water pressure dropped off due to the malfunctioning pump. That's the first time we've had that happen in all the time we've owned it, and hopefully the last! It's also great to hear that you enjoyed the Farmer's Market across the street. We were down there a few weeks ago and they hadn't started doing the Farmer's Market yet so it's good to hear that you enjoyed it. We look forward to being able to open our home to you again in the future!
