Overview

About the property

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

Penthouse Unit with unobstructed views of the Gulf of Mexico and the beautiful 'Back Bay'. Few, if any of the units at the Lover's Key Resort offer the views that this unit does.

Nestled on Black Island where there are only 2 other resorts is Lover's Key Resort. According to the Travel Channel, Lover's Key is #4 of the top ten beaches in the world! The views from the balcony are absolutely breathtaking and virtually guarantee frequent dolphin sightings. Manatee, stingray, and sea turtles are also common sightings. Lover's Key State Park and the beach is just across the street and all of the fun and nightlife of Times Square is just a short trolley ride away.

On site, there is a gorgeous pool, restaurant, tiki bar, fitness room, and library where a computer and internet access is available for your use. While at the resort, stroll along on the sand of the back bay or fish from the water's edge. Boat rentals, fishing charters, Everglade Tours, golf courses ,and miniature golf courses are all just a short distance away.

Lover's Key is close to all of the action and fun of Fort Myers Beach and is only 20 miles from the world class shopping and dining found in Naples, but is quietly tucked into a tiny piece of paradise

About Dave and Tina

We live just 2 miles from this beautiful resort and have always admired it. Fort Myers Beach is where Tina and I honeymooned 17 years ago! Who would have guessed we'd be lucky enough to live here!

Dave and Tina purchased this condo in 2011

Why Dave and Tina chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We have always been impressed with the cleanliness and location of this great resort. A recent change in management has made Lover's Key Resort one of the best buildings in Fort Myers Beach!!

What makes this condo unique

While direct Gulf front units are nice, the views from this resort are even better (in our opinion). From this condo, the Gulf of Mexico is just across the street and highly visible, but the wildlife in the back bay offer a 'two for one' value that few buildings can boast.

Beautiful sunsets

  • 4 of 5

Overall we liked the condo. There was a wasp problem on the deck and a very bad ant problem in the kitchen. Looking out at the sunset made us happy though. We loved the beach. It would have been nice to have an extra roll of toilet paper included for the price. Every other place we have ever rented has had a back-up!

Owner's Response: Thank you so very much for taking the time to write. We are very pleased that you enjoyed the condo and the beautiful views that the unit affords. As soon as we received your comments, we immediately contacted the resort management team to inform them of the ant and wasp issues. We suspect that the problem resulted from a recent roof replacement at the complex as we are not aware of any units affected on other floors. We have also contacted the cleaning staff about the toilet paper problem. We agree that an extra roll would have been nice. Again, thank you very much for the comments.

You can't oversell the view!

  • 4 of 5

While not quite 360° it is an amazing vantage point to appreciate the water and wilderness of the area. We enjoyed watching the Osprey and other birds take advantage of the air currents and the abundant fish in the surrounding waters.

The unit itself is comfortable for two people and has everything that you would expect and need in the kitchen. Unfortunately we could never connect to the wifi but, since we travel frequently, we brought our own.

If you like a very, very soft bed you will love this one. There were zero hangers in the closet when we arrived so we made an excursion to the mainland to purchase some so we had a way to hang our clothing.

Lastly, we wish we would have at least known that there was construction happening on the roof right above us. While we may not have changed our minds about the rental we would have at least been informed that pretty intense drilling would start at 7:30 AM each day. Alas...

Owner's Response: Thank you so very much for taking the time to write as we truly value and react to our guests compliments and concerns. We feel badly about the disruptions and early morning noise as a result of the roof construction. We were given a fairly large window as to what dates the construction would begin and end and of course it was weather dependent. Further, the construction was not suppose to start each day until 9:00 AM. We will relay your concerns to the management of the building. We regret and apologize for not letting you know that roof construction was possible especially since the penthouse unit is so close to the roof itself. As soon as the unit is vacant, we will personally inspect the mattress as we do not like an overly soft mattress either. Interestingly, we have a regular guest that stays in the unit for approximately 3 months during the winter that like the mattress comfort. We also apologize for the hanger and WiFi problems. Tina always leaves ample hangers in the other closet (the solid door one), but perhaps you didn't open the door or somehow they wound up missing. I wish that you would have contacted us about the WiFi situation as we would have happily run over and repaired/replaced the router, but we are glad that you had another alternative We are so very glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope that you'll consider Lover's Key Resort for a future vacation. Tina and Dave

The pictures say it all!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place to spend vacation time it was everything I had hoped for and more. The location could not have been better close to Fort Myers beach and everything it brings. The trolley was very convenient to get around we parked the car on arrival and didn't need till it was time to leave. I could wake up to that view every morning for the rest of my life and be content. Looking forward to an opportunity to revisit and spend more time.

Great Anniversary with the "Best View"

  • 5 of 5

The penthouse was a perfect setting..overlooking the city. We enjoyed our stay and greeted with an Anniversary wine and 2 glasses on the counter. The place was very comfortable and would recommend it to anyone.

Penthouse

  • 3 of 5

Although the owners are great and responsive, we did have some issues on or stay. We had to buy ant spray and garbage bags (only 1 left for the whole week). Sheets were not ready for the pull out bed until after our son was asleep. On the last night the air conditioning went out. Because they were so easy to get in touch with, we were able to relocate to a different unit. If you are looking for a room with a view and owners who are quick to respond, this one has it.
