Overview

North Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

Weekly Rentals with 3 night rentals possible

You can spend the day soaking up the sun at the quiet heated pool, combing the beach or enjoying water sports. As the day winds down, take a leisurely walk along the beach to the bustling Times Square for some freshly caught seafood and enjoy the sights and sounds of Floridian life. A screened-in lanai allows you to take in breathtaking sunsets on the Gulf of Mexico and view the lights of Sanibel Island. Located right next to the Pink Shell Resort, you'll find many of the hotel's amenities at your disposal, including a full spa (pool is reserved for Pink shell guests only).

WEEKLY RENTALS ONLY

The building also neighbors Bowditch Point Park where you can see the local wildlife and catch a trolley to any destination on the island. Condo renters are also given a reserved space in the building's parking lot to avoid the crowds and parking farther down the beach. The beauty of this condo is allowing you to relax and have the perfect vacation you've always wanted to take.

Suitability:
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • children welcome
  • limited accessibility
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed

About Penny Aguirre

I live in Minnesota where I work in the Horticulture field and I am also co-owner in a winery. I spend my summers at a cabin on a lake enjoying great views, nature and spending time on the water. I longed to find a great place in Florida to spend time in the winter with those same qualities and share this place with others.

Penny Aguirre purchased this condo in 2012

Why Penny Aguirre chose Fort Myers Beach

I have vacationed on Ft Myers beach for many years and found it special for its easy flight access combined with a nice beach and a fun nightlife. After staying at the Pink Shell one winter, I realized that the North end was ideal! After looking for a few years, I found this place, walked through the nice decor onto the lanai and instantly knew this was the place; it could not get much better than this!

What makes this condo unique

North end, top floor for great view and no sound from above, just a few steps from the elevator to the pool and beach, full kitchen, spacious for a one bedroom, only 30 units.

All about the view!!

  • 5 of 5

This was out third time staying at Vacation Villas but first time at Penny's condo. 6th floor was beautiful! Great view of the park and wonderful walk across street to sit on pier and watch dolphins and boats from quiet side! While not one of the most spectacularly decorated condos I appreciated the little things like the placing of small blankets for use on cooler mornings and evenings (higher up it can be chilly in the morning!). Lots of great chairs and other items for use on the beach and during stay like rolling cooler, water bottles, a variety of items in condo that I am guessing others left behind and we were able to use.

We had small issue wth air conditioning going out but a call to the maintenance man had the problem fixed in less than an hour!

The pool here is wonderful! Everyone we have met in the three years staying at this location has been very friendly! Could be a Midwesterners convention! The location is close to Time Square yet far enough away to be less crowded. Sunset views are the best!

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

We loved Penny's condo! Excellent location, well stocked and great lanai! We stayed at the Pink Shell until the rates doubled , now we will go back to this condo when vacationing at Fort Myers Beach . Pool was perfect and the people who stay there are very friendly.

Owner's Response: Thanks William, I hope you consider it your florida homophile there. The pool is great I agree. Many people inquire about being able to use the Pink Shell Pool but the pool at our building has very little chorine as it is salt water so way better ! Penny

Perfect location on strip

  • 4 of 5

Everything was very good. The only that was disappointing was how cleanness the condo was. We needed to clean it ourselves 1st to feel comfortable. It was the cleaning crew before we got there did not do a good job. Not the owners fault. It was apparent they did a wicks change linens only. The was not vacuumed floors were not swept. Nothing was wiped down.

Overall that was not a big deal for us to do a cleaning.

Maybe a different cleaning company needs to be hired.

The owner was great. Very good communication. Would we go back. Yes only knowing a new cleaning company was used.

Paradise in Fort Myers Beach

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Penny's condo!! Excellent location!! Loved my daily stroll through Bowditch Park and around the tip of the Island. We made good use of the table and chairs on the lanai having our meals there enjoying the boats, wildlife and the sunsets. This is the most well stocked condo I have ever had the pleasure to enjoy. It has everything you could ever need for the beach or pool plus plenty of towels, dishes and other necessities for your stay. The beds were very comfortable. The take out menus were most helpful as is the book with tips from prior guest. We would recommend this condo to everyone. I hope to come back and stay here again!
