About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4)

Beautifully decorated and fully appointed 1 Bedroom condo located directly on the Gulf of Mexico and spectacular Fort Myers Beach. This seventh floor corner unit in Estero Beach and Tennis Club offers breathtaking views of both the Gulf and the Inter-coastal Waterway.

The unit has been totally updated and offers everything you need for the perfect vacation getaway including free wi-fi in the unit! From the balcony you can enjoy gentle ocean breezes, morning sunrises and evening sunsets. Enjoy watching dolphins from the window or the balcony!!!

On the complex grounds enjoy the serenity and beauty of the wildlife sanctuary where numerous species of birds frequent the natural flora and fauna. If you wish to just settle down with a good book and sit by the heated pool there is always that option as well as playing tennis on one of the four clay courts.

Come here once and you will want to come back to the '4C's' (Cleanest, Cutest, Convenient Condo) :)

The King size bed offers Kingsize pillows and comfortable pillowtop that will be a welcome snuggle after a full day of playing in the sun. There are plenty of extra pillows and blankets for you to make the 'nest' extra comfortable for your liking.

If you enjoy cooking during your holiday stay, the well equipped kitchen will allow testing of some new culinary delights. If you don't want to cook, there are an assortment of restaurants that are all walking distance, so you can try a different restaurant every night.

If you want the convenience of using your computer anywhere in the condo - you will appreciate the wi-fi that will work even on the balcony. Of course, if you don't want to look at your computer at all - you can just enjoy the wonderful breezes and view from the balcony.

Also, please notice the pictures that Pat, one of the guests at the condo, took of the wildlife on the grounds or on the beach in front of the condo. She took them with her small digital camera which just amazed me - what a photographer! We have to thank her for sharing these!

About Jana Charvat

I love the Florida outdoors and that is why I moved here in 2012. The kayaking, bicycling, walking, and hiking are things that I can now do year around. I used to live in Wisconsin and do not miss the snow, cold and grayness. I so enjoy doing vacation rentals as it is so much fun to contribute to great memories of a vacation by providing a place that people can feel at home.

Jana Charvat purchased this condo in 2010

Why Jana Charvat chose Fort Myers Beach

just loved this condo from the moment I walked into it - between the quaintness and the view I was sold. My goal was to fix it up and share it with people who enjoy the beach and appreciate a condo that reflects TLC. Fort Myers beach just has so much to do and is so beautiful are just two of the reasons that I bought here. The next improvement I am planning to make is to upgrade and enlarge the kitchen. My hope is that this place will hold many nice memories for those who stay here as my guest.

Simply the cutest and most comfortable condo the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Just returning from our sixth February vacation at Jana's condo, we must say it pleases us 100%. The nice little changes she has made only adds to the charm. Everything you could possible need is provided. Convenient to restaurants and shopping as well as a serene view from the porch. Dolphins did not disappoint this year as well as sunsets. Our weather was perfect. Thank you once again Jana. Look forward to next year already!!

It truly is the cleanest, cutest and most convenient!

  • 5 of 5

Everything needed for a great vacation is within this condo! The bedroom furniture was spacious for clothes storage and all of our suitcases fit into the master closet. The owner has thought of everything, providing a well stocked kitchen, everything needed for the beach, a well put together binder with pamphlets for many attractions and other useful information, and even small flashlights for evening walks!

Jana was very quick to respond to a couple of routine maintenance items and very pleasant to work with to resolve.

The views from the window and balcony are fantastic! We enjoyed the dolphins and sunrise from inside the condo and then enjoyed the sunset and more dolphins standing on the beach! Outstanding!

Santini Plaza across the street has many restaurants and shops and CVS is next door. The trolley stop is close by as are bike rentals (daily and weekly) Two grocery stores are a short distance by car.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks!

Loved it! Great location and value!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for two weeks in January of 2017. This was the third time we have rented from Jana and have made plans to return next year if all goes as planned.

The condo is as advertised, "clean, cute, and convenient". Many, many things to make it desirable, the beach, nearby restaurants, the trolley, and much more.

Very nice property. Better than expected.

  • 4 of 5

Very enjoyable! Nice beach and lots of sea shells. Several restaurants and bars nearby and a trolley to go up to Times Square, which was fun. Had a small problem with a closet door and they fixed it that same day. Nice sunsets!

Wonderful Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

Jana's place is beautiful - looks just like her pictures. My husband and I enjoyed our week and are already making plans to go back. Beach was private and beautiful - lots of shells, birds and dolphins and just a short walk from the condo - and Jana has everything you need for a day at the beach. I'm giving it 5 stars in spite of the pool being closed for building maintenance while we were there. One of our favorite places to eat while in Ft. Myers Beach is Parrot Key Caribbean Grill. I have already recommended Jana's condo to several friends and relatives.

Owner's Response: I understand the four stars because of the pool closure. The good news is that the pool is open again.

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning Fee $95

Please note I do not charge a damage deposit. I would much prefer you let me know if something breaks during your stay so that I can get it fixed. Also, please let me know right away if anything is broken or missing when you check in, so that I might be able to rectify during your stay. Thank you.

CANCELLATIONS –Cancellations that are made more than sixty (60) days prior to the arrival date are subject to a 5% cancellation fee or $50, whichever is greater. Cancellations or changes that result in a shortened stay, that are made within 60 days of the arrival date, forfeit the full advance payment and reservation deposit. Cancellation or early departure does not warrant any refund of rent, unless Jana is able to rent those nights.

MONTHLY RESERVATION CANCELLATIONS – Monthly renters must cancel one hundred twenty (120) days prior to check-in. Monthly renters who make a change that results in a shortened stay must be made at least ninety (90) days prior to check-in. Again, refund will depend if Jana is able to rent those nights held originally.

I always recommend travel insurance for those unforeseen illnesses or accidents.
