Why The Owner chose Fort Myers Beach

We chose Island Winds for our vacation spot because of the beach and the view from the condo and because so many activities are close by

Absolutely beautiful location on Fort Myers Beach!

  • 5 of 5

What a great condo! In all our travels, we have not found a better equipped condo. The owners provide everything you need for a great beach stay! We were disappointed that our pool was closed due to renovations (because it was a great pool), but we had access to the smaller pool next door. The condo was very clean and up-to-date - designed perfectly for a couple with 2 children. The views from the condo are out of this world and the location is perfect - close to great dining, but far from the crowds. We would definitely stay here again!!

Owners should be aware of any construction that will take place and possible pool closing and they need to inform potential renters . We were awakened to POWER TOOLS our first morning at 7:00 A.M. and three more mornings after that even though Management was informed. Seems owners TWO floors below us were remodeling. After that HAMMERING started at 8:00 A.M. So we listened to hammering the whole week, but during the course of the day. ALSO seems POOL CLOSING was scheduled to start because the building got permits to remodel the pool area. Seems to us the owners were aware of this and should at least inform potential renters of the possibility that the pool will not be available. Our last day there we had to trek over to the building next door to use the pool. Not exactly what we had in mind because there pool was overloaded with their guests and now the people from our building. Fortunate that this was our last day for the pool. Not sure if we would go this route again. Owners MUST BE UP FRONT with potential renters!

Owner's Response: I am so sorry you had such an unpleasant experience. With such a beautiful beach and luxurious condominium, I am surprised you didn't have one nice thing to say about your stay. This is the first review that was not a 5 star review since we started renting 10 years ago. Unfortunately, I have no advance notice of which owners may be remodeling when, and the owner in question two floors down was not following the condo rules.The condominium manager assured me that he had taken care of the problem. As far as the cabinet door, a simple call to maintenance would have solved that problem within a day. Also the renters prior to you and after you had no problem with the TV in the master bedroom, perhaps you were not familiar with the remote.

Beautiful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend renting this condo for your vacation! Upon entering the condo the first day, my husband and I were so happy with the updated decor, the cleanliness, and spaciousness. The views from the window and balcony are will never miss a sunset in the evening! The owner will be there to answer any questions or concerns you have promptly. I truly cannot say enough positive things regarding having rented this condo.

Perfect property, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Ft. Myers Beach and were really impressed with the condo. Everything was meticulously updated and really felt like a home away from home. My wife and I were traveling with our 4 and 2 year old children and were impressed with the amenities the owners had available that were well suited for the entire family. From an extensive variety of beach gear (buckets, shovels, umbrellas, etc.) to kids stuff (books, games, toys) all the bases were covered. Also important to note, the actual location is super convenient since it's pretty much dead center of Ft. Myers Beach - a very short drive to Publix, close proximity to some of the better dining options, and plenty of distance from the party-crowd that tends to be located on the northern part of Ft. Myers Beach. If you're looking for a nice, relaxing beach vacation - I would highly recommend this property.

Beautiful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed October 10-17 and had a wonderful time! Condo is Beautiful! Sunsets from the living room and balcony were AMAZING!! Very well stocked with everything that you could possibly need. We cooked dinners in some nights and the kitchen had a great assortment of things, we did not need anything. We have stayed in a lot of condos over the years and this one was by far better for cooking. They had board games, cards, and also a lot of information on area things to do and restaurants. Nice to see the before and after pics of your remodel, you did an AWESOME job! The shelling was great. It was also nice having CVS and Publix close by.
