I know J had a wonderful time in Florida, and especially at your condo.
She let me take a peek inside, and it's beautiful. The sunny west windows make
it so bright and airy. I'd love to have a condo just like that.
We were recommended this apartment and I must say we were not disappointed. Our communication with the owner, Jim, was brilliant. He couldn't have been more helpful and answered all my questions, even the silly ones about the new Walmarts nearby ! Payment and instructions were clear and easy and Jim couldn't have done more to help you.
On arrival we had been given all the codes and instructions for getting in and it was smooth and easy. The resort is spotless and maintained to a very high standard. The grounds are kept beautiful and it's very pretty and peaceful there. Most days we had the pool to ourselves all morning and the club house is so useful with a complete kitchen for your use, restrooms, lounge, gym and even a small library! The apartments are set round a lovely lake with fountain in and some beautiful wildlife.
Inside the apartment it was brilliant. Huge amount of space with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, main living room and also a TV room which can be used as a bedroom with a sofa bed. Very well stocked kitchen, laundry room and huge, screened balcony. Everything was clean with plenty of linens, towels, utensils and even beach things in the garage and Barbeque.
I couldn't really say anything was bad at all but two little things I will point out. One, on most mornings when we got yo the pool we had to clean it ourselves as there were leaves and debris in it. We saw people checking the water but no one actually cleaning it. Also, the spa pool wasn't working much.
Two, when looking at the apartment buildings, they have all been built ( apart for one) with the balconies over looking the road and not the beautiful lake. Which means when you're sitting outside eating or relaxing all you can see is the road and trees when on the other side you have a beautiful view!
As I said, these are only my opinions and no big deal really.
There is a very small beach at the end of the road which is ok but nothing much. You have to drive to get to bigger, better beaches and the best one we found within a reasonable drive was the State park of Lovers Key at Fort Myers. There's plenty of good shopping in the local vicinity and you're given a key to a back gate on the property which brings you out right next to a Publix supermarket.
Overall, our stay was excellent. I would definitely recommend Jims apartment if you want a base to see Fort Myers and the surrounding areas. Thank you Jim !
This was our second visit to Fort Myers while staying at this condo and definitely will not be our last. It is very clean, bright, spacious, and close to basically every store you need (also only about 8 minutes from Fort Myers Beach). This is by far our favorite vacation place!
We have rented a lot of condos all of the U.S. but this is one of the best condos that we have ever stayed in. It was in excellent condition and very well equipped. In fact, my wife said it's the best equipped condo that we've ever stayed in. The location was great. It was 5-10 mins from Sanibel and Captiva Island, 15 mins to Fort Myers Beach, 30 mins to Naples. It was close to shopping and restaurants. Last but certainly not least, the owners, Jim and Nicole were amazing. They checked in when we arrived and periodically during our stay to make sure that everything was just perfect and it was. I can honestly say that my wife (Lyne) and my two kids (Stephanie and Justin), who are 20 and 16 years old, had a great vacation at this condo and I'd recommend this condo to anyone even my best friend. Thanks Jim & Nicole. Sincerely, John, Lyne, Stephanie & Justin
Being my first time renting from VRBO, I can honestly say that this was the best first experience I could have asked for. The host was extremely helpful throughout the whole process and gave us great tips for things to do when we got there and where local shopping is (which is all very close by). The condo is GORGEOUS. Walking in, the first thing we noticed was how spacious it was. There is also a lot of natural light since it is a corner unit and it is decorated beautifully. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone.
Had a wonderful stay. The condo was very nice. I didn't want to leave! Hope to return soon.......
We had a great stay at Sanibel View last week. The condo was perfect for our needs: literally everything we needed, with a fresh, clean feel that was very welcoming. Seems like thick walls because we hardly heard a peep from neighbors the whole time. The first floor level (actually second) over the garages was perfect because we didn't worry about the noise from our kids running back and forth. Kids and dad used the pool every night. There's a truck that sells fresh gulf seafood behind the outlet malls down the road- we enjoyed buying shrimp and grouper to cook in the condo. Good distance from both Sanibel and Fort Myers Beach- just a few minutes in good traffic, longer sometimes but that's normal for the area. The owner was great to work with and very responsive. Thanks for a great stay!
If you just like kicking back and spending time on the beach, then this location is for you. Sanibel View is just a 5 minute drive to Sanibel Island or Fort Myers Beach, or a peaceful walk or short bike ride to Bunche Beach on San Carlos Bay.
If you like to play a few rounds of golf, the Shell Point and Kelly Green Golf Courses are less than 5 minutes away.
If you like to shop for bargains, the Tanger Outlet Shoppes with stores like Ralph Lauren, Coach, Haggar, and Mikasa is also nearby.
The main drag through Fort Myers, Route 41, is about 15 minutes away with restaurants, movie theaters, and other entertainment.
