Guestbook comments from the owner

Just arrived home today. My stay in your condo was very pleasant. It was just what I was looking for; clean, comfortable, and quiet, and the weather man certainly co-operated giving me mid 80's and sunny for the entire stay.

Next time I take a trip to the beach, I'll be in touch with you.

Easy, Breezy South Fort Myers Beach condo

  • 5 of 5

This comfortable condo has everything we needed and then some - we particularly appreciated the lanai, the comfortable beds and the large master bathroom. All you need to bring is beach towels! The heated pool in the complex is nice, and everyone is very helpful, including Brenda in the front office. An easy walk (5 minutes) across the street and down a sandy path takes you right to the beach, which must be at its widest here! Sun chairs, umbrellas and cabanas are available for rent. A seafood restaurant, "Pinchers", in one of the adjoining beach hotels has a tiki bar with drinks and food right on the beach. Just south of the condo complex is a CVS and a small, cute shopping plaza (Santini) with a couple of restaurants and a lively market on Tuesday mornings. For a supermarket, go north to hit Publix. For more restaurants and general "beach craziness", go north. If you're here for the beach, stay right where you are and enjoy! We loved it and will be back. Tip: "Fresh Catch Bistro" further up the beach for Happy Hour, starting at 3 pm - great affordable drinks and food with a view. Or Happy Hour at Lani Kai on top of the hotel, starting at 4 pm, if you want more action and a fantabulous outdoor beach view while sitting in the 'moving' booths!! Also really enjoyed "Nervous Nellie" at the top of Fort Myers Beach - outdoor seating on the water, with heaters!

Nice place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderfull vacation in this condo, which was actually the first one ever.

Everything was very clean and tidy. All devices worked as expected and the internet was unbelievable fast. We loved the kitchen, my wife especially the sharp knifes cause she's a chef 😀.We also enjoy the large pool area very much. The only part we were missing was a bit harder bed. Also the dumbster was not able to use in the building C. It was temporary closed, for that week, but was not a problem at all.

We would come back, definatelly.👌

Enjoyed the Condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! The condo was very clean and was perfect size for what we needed! It was very convenient getting to garage, and to pool! Enjoyed the beach, fishing and ate at some great restaurants! Our favorite was Fresh Catch Bistro and Pinchers for night life! Also, enjoyed trips to Naples, Marco Island, and Bonita Springs which were short jaunts! Thank you! Cindy

C'est Magnifique!

  • 5 of 5

We finally arrived home last week after spending five weeks at The Home Away From Home with a French Touch and have already booked a longer stay for next year.

It is no exaggeration to say that the whole package is simply magnificent: the unit, the grounds, the pool, the beach, the whole area.

The unit is spacious, has a great view of the gardens and pool from the lanai, and is conveniently located close to the stairs and elevator that lead directly down one flight to your car parked in the covered garage below. It is very tastefully decorated, with comfortable furniture and modern electronic devices as well as books, magazines and DVDs for your pleasure. We felt very much at home during our stay and felt reluctant to leave.

The grounds are also very spacious, beautifully landscaped and well maintained. Everyone we met at the large pool was very friendly and in full vacation mode.

The walk to get to the beach is through a very pleasant sand covered, shaded walkway across the street. The beach is HUGE and clean, with wide open spaces on one side and mangroves on the other, people walking, jogging, walking dogs, riding bikes, fishing, collecting shells and so on.

We loved the location, where we could easily drive to Fort Myers or Sanibel Island, visit the shops and beach at Times Square, etc. We also liked the convenient nearby shopping and restaurants, as well as making short visits to shop in Bonita Springs and Naples.

We can't wait to get back there next year and renew the friendships that we made!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We're in our mid 20's and 3 of us stayed in this room. It was very well taken care of and we a great time. This is a very relaxing part of the beach, and that's exactly what we were going for. There's a tiki bar on the beach just a short walk away that is really fun at sunset.

The pool at this location is very nice and there is also a shuffle board court that is older, but still a ton of fun!
