Beautiful white sand beach, heated swimming pool, 4 Har-tru tennis courts


Enjoy an unforgettable beachfront vacation at Estero Beach and Tennis Club on the quiet south end of beautiful Ft. Myers Beach. This 10th floor 1BR 1Ba condo has a prime Gulf/sunset view. It has been upgraded with a new maple kitchen with granite counter-top and dishwasher, handsome light-toned flooring, a light-colored Italian leather full sofa-bed, a second TV in the bedroom, a spacious new bathroom vanity and accessories, and Wi-Fi in the condo. Enjoy watching sunsets over the Gulf from inside the living room or while relaxing on the balcony in comfortable swivel rockers,

Swim in our delightful heated pool or walk from our lawn directly onto a lovely white sand beach and into the Gulf of Mexico. Enjoy tennis on our Har-tru tennis courts, or have a game of shuffleboard. Nearby are many restaurants and shops for every taste and pocketbook. Rent a boat at the marina across the street, take the family on a dophin-spotting cruise, or try your hand at deep-sea or bay fishing. Enjoy nearby Lovers Key State Park, Sanibel Island with its noted J.N. 'Ding' Darling National Wildlife Refuge, and even, a little farther afield, day trips to the Everglades and even Key West by shuttle boat.

Estero Beach and Tennis Club is situated on an exceptionally-fine 10-acre piece of Gulf-front property. The landscaping is outstanding, particularly our welcoming double row of royal palms along our graceful entry drive.

About Elaine & Rollin Dix

Elaine and Rollin live in Chicago, but spend about three months of each year at Estero Beach and Tennis Club (EBT). Since our first purchase there in 1992, we have acquired three other units, all of which we manage and maintain personally.

Elaine & Rollin Dix purchased this condo in 1992

Why Elaine & Rollin Dix chose South Island

Our extensive search ended at EBT where we take family frequently. The eight grandchildren love the pool, beach and many nearby restaurants, shops and parks.

What makes this condo unique

The view from the living room and balcony is outstanding, but there is also a nearby short, but challenging, golf course and Lovers Key State Park just two miles to the south.

Awesome Panoramic Gulf View & Sunsets to Die For!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was just as described. The Condo was immaculately clean, even the windows were spotless which allowed you to enjoy the amazing view from any where in the Condo. From the lanai not only can you hear the waves you can enjoy all the nature. We literally actually saw several Bald Eagles hanging out & then taking flight & a plethora of other birds. The extra Flat Screen TV in the bedroom is a huge plus. Elaine & Rollin were a pleasure to deal with & extremely accommodating. Looking forward to next year we will definitely be going back.

Top condo with spectacular gulf view!

  • 5 of 5

Top condo with spectacular gulf view! We had four wonderful weeks here and we will come back to Estero Beach and Tennis Club 2016.

Wunderschönes Apartment in einer gepflegten Anlage direkt am Strand. Hervorragend zum Entspannen, für lange Strandspaziergänge und zum Schwimmen im warmen Golf von Mexiko. Auch gut gelegen für Ausflüge mit dem Auto. Einer unserer schönsten Urlaube. Wir kommen 2016 wieder in die Anlage zurück in eine andere schöne Wohnung derselben Vermieterin, weil dieses super Apartment zu unserem Wunschtermin leider ausgebucht war. Die Vermieterin ist sehr freundlich und kooperativ. 100 % zu empfehlen!
