Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
I have been a member of VRBO for 18 years and I encourage you to look at some of my previous renter's reviews. I can't guarantee you perfect weather, but I do promise that my condo is everything it appears to be and then some. This is my second home and I believe it is furnished and equipped to make your vacation everything you would expect. I purchased this condo in 1997 when I lived in Ft Lauderdale. It was an hour and a half away and we would spend weekends on the beach. I currently reside in Panama, so when I am not soaking up the sun myself, I offer my Luxury condo for rent on a weekly basis.

Why Steve chose Mid Island
The condo is located mid island, 2 miles South of the Times Square area, 2 blocks to the Publix Supermarket. The perfect mix of convenience without the noise and traffic of the Times Square area.
What makes this Condo unique
I love that I can hear and see the Gulf from almost everywhere in the condo. Laying in bed, listening to the ocean affords me the most restful sleep whenever I am staying there. There is nothing that I enjoy more than sitting on the Lanai, glass of wine in hand watching the amazing sunsets over the Gulf. I know you will too.

Right on the Beach!
We really enjoyed our stay at Smugglers Cove and the chance to get away from a Minnesota winter. The location was perfect for stepping out the door and walking the beach or getting a lawn chair to sit on the private grass facing the water. We loved our Happy Hour sunsets on the lanai and tended to stay in for dinner since getting groceries from Publix was so convenient. My only issue was the pots and pans and other cooking utensils should be replaced and added to. But the Kreig coffee maker was great!
Diane, Thank you for staying with me this year. I glad I could make your winter get away one to remember. Steve
The location of this condo is perfect - so near the beach and with the screens on the patio and windows and door, we could listen to the surf all night long! It was also nice to have beach chairs and beach towels available to use. Master bed is very comfortable. Pool was heated. Quiet location was a plus compared to the north by all the restaurants, etc. It's one of the best "walking beaches" we've been on. The only problem was they were having difficulty with the elevator our week. We were able to walk the steps but I'm guessing that wasn't true for some of the elderly. All in all it was a great week.
Hi Bob, Thank you for staying with me and I am glad that enjoyed my Condo in Paradise. I know the association had issues with the elevator company solving the problem, but it was resolved and I apologize for the inconvenience. I am glad though that my condo exceeded your expectations and look forward to your visiting again. Steve
Overall great vacation
The condo was just the right size and fully equipped with everything we needed. The bed was very comfortable which is very unusual in rentals. The view of the gulf is fantastic and we saw dolphins every day on our beach walks. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone wanting to stay on Fort Myers Beach.
Hi Robin, it was a pleasure hosting you and your family and I look forward to your return to Fort Myers Beach and my condo in paradise soon. Steve
Beach location is great! The condo was very clean and it is convenient property staff on site.
We saw an abundance of sea life. Washer and dryer are on main level. They are nice, but that is a bit inconvenient. Overall had a good time and enjoyed our stay.
Thank you for staying at my condo and I look forward to visiting again in the future. Steve
Older unit with updates in a great location
Overall, we loved staying here. The view is wonderful and the beach was not very crowded. We have stayed in Destin, FL many times in the past and got sick of the crowds. It was nice not having to battle for a spot next to the water. Even on the 4th of July, it was not very crowded.
We saw dolphins every day except for one during our 1 week stay. We saw hundreds of star fish, a few conchs and hermit crabs, and even a sting ray. The water is not as clear as Destin, but it was still nice.
The condo is within walking distance to the grocery store, which was a benefit. Not too many restaurants within walking distance, but within a short ride.
We never used the pool as we spent our time on the beach. There were also grills and sittings areas outside over looking the beach. Someone was grilling every day.
We only had a few criticisms. With limited counter space in the bath rooms, I wish the sink bowls were smaller. We also noticed the blender was not very clean. It was obvious that past tenants did not take the pitcher apart to wash it after they used it. Also, one of the outside chairs seating surface was falling apart These are all minor items and we truly enjoyed our stay in unit 4B5. Our family of three fit fine in this condo and we would stay here again.
Hi Mark, Thank you for your review. Have arranged for maintenance to take care of the chairs. As for the blender, I apologize and will see to it that it is cleaned as well, however as you stated, it was a past renter that did not do what they should have and unfortunately the cleaners can not inspect every dish, glass and appliance. Thank you for bringing that to my attention.
Everything was great!
It was absolutely beautiful there!
Ronda, Thank you for your wonderful review. I am glad I could help make your vacation at my condo in paradise one to remember. Steve
3 miles, just off the island is Capt Tony's Fishing Express. I've fished with them for years. Great boat, crews and a fun day.....and I always bring home fish for the grill. Love Boat ice cream is 10 minutes away, just off the island. If you like ice cream, you will LOVE Love Boat.
