You expect to see GREAT VIEWS from a Penthouse level beachside condo and you will get them Big Time from our place. We have a number of e-referrals we can share attesting to the Fabulous Views you will experience 'On Top'. Beware: there are many condos in our complex which have very poor and low unappealing parking lot views. You're going on Vacation, right? You deserve to be able to say WOW !!!!!!!!! when you lease a beachside vacation condo. You will LOVE our Fort Myers Beach Penthouse condo views !!

This Penthouse-level (14th floor) condo is situated on the Gulf of Mexico with fabulous views of Estero Bay, Naples, and Sanibel Island from the covered balcony. This one bedroom condo features a very comfortable king-size bed as well as a new queen sleeper sofa & rocker/recliner in the living room with a heavy sliding door for privacy. NOTE: Beautiful porcelain tile installed in the 'Diamond' pattern on all floors except the bedroom. It is gorgeous!! Only a handful of units offer this very upscale feature.

The Kitchen is fully-equipped including new arm kitchen chairs on wheels. Towels/linens are provided (see amenities below). Just bring your own beach towels! There is a huge heated pool with luxurious sun deck. There is a large grassy area for additional crowd-free sunning or sports activities.

Restaurants, drug store, marina and 18 hole golf course are just across the street. The beach trolley is only 25 cents and will take you from one end of the beach to the other and to Fort Myers for additional shopping or dining. There are two Supermarkets on the island. There is a Catholic Church & several Protestant Churches just up the street.

Enjoy four, well manicured (free) clay tennis courts on property at this prestigious private Beach and Tennis Club. Cook out on the free gas grills near the floor shuffleboards. From your balcony, view dolphins playing and jumping in the surf. There are also many species of colorful birds to see such as pelicans, egrets, osprey, and herons. NOTE: Please notice the difference between the views of our Penthouse unit and lower floor units also advertised in VRBO. While lounging on the balcony, you will not look out directly onto the unsightly WEEDS of the Sandbar. Our guests comment on this all the time. This is an important point to make.

Take early morning, afternoon, or sunset walks on the pure white sugar powder sand of this most beautiful beach. Stop in one of the many varied beachfront restaurants all along the boulevard. Enjoy dining or cocktails on their gulfside decks overlooking the beach. Beach sunsets are too beautiful to describe!

Our rates are generally lower than most all others at this tropical paradise. Repeat guests are guaranteed the same rates for at least two years!! Also, any rental referrals you provide us will earn you rent credits for your own future rentals.

Whether you desire a romantic get-away, a small family beach vacation, or are a retired couple looking for peace and serenity, you will find that you will fall in love with this little bit of heaven and want to return year after year.

There is something for everyone. Hunt shells on the beach, play golf or tennis, swim in the Gulf of Mexico, or just 'veg out' at the huge heated pool. One of our favorite things to do is to enjoy breakfast, lunch, or dinner on the covered balcony just taking in the gorgeous beach sights and sunsets. You can also rent beach chairs, umbrellas, 2 person hood shade lounges w/cushions right on the beach behind the Holiday Inn. The Holiday Inn is just a short 4-5 minute walk up the beach behind the condo. Their Pinchers Grill is a great outdoor Tiki Bar which serves beer, mixed drinks and food. They often offer live entertainmment. There are also a number of good restaurants and bars right across the street in Santini Plaza as well.

There is no better way to get away from all the stresses life presents! Treat yourself... you deserve it!

NOTE: Wi Fi can be accessed in the lobby area on the floor level of the condo building. There are chairs and tables to sit at for your convenience. Wireless is broadcast from the complex office located next to our building.

About Bob Gorman

We have owned our Penthouse level condo for many years and many of our guests return year after year. We do our best to satisy our guests. Our caretaker/cleaner is Sue and she is happy to assist if there is any problem whatsoever. We aim to please. Understand that our out the door price quotes include rent, tax, exit cleaning and start up toiletry supplies.

Why Bob Gorman chose Fort Myers Beach

We loved the views from our Penthouse level condo the first time we saw it. 100% Gulf views get boring fast and especially during the black nights. You have the best of both worlds looking from our balcony.....the Gulf waters, the night lights, the magical surroundings

What makes this condo unique

This is one of only 2 condos in Building 'A' where you can see OVER the other 2 buildings of our condo complex....all the way to Naples....AND see the Gulf of Mexico at the very same time from our balcony. The views are simply fabulous !

Beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

I spend a week at Bob's condo on Fort Myers Beach. I was very hesitant to travel alone (last minute my husband's work would not allow him to go). I had never been to Ft Myers beach before. Bob told me it was very safe and mentioned the beach trolley to get around. I had a very relaxing time. I hunted for seashells (lots and lots), I spend the day at Lover's Key (got there by beach trolley) and did some shopping at Times Square. The condo was just like the photos. I spend a lot of time on the balcony enjoying the view. The pool was not open during my stay, but that didn't matter to me, as long as the beach was there. I would love to come back with my hubby or a girlfriend next time. October was a great time to go, as it wasn't high season yet. Bob was super accommodating considering I booked last minute. Book this condo, you will be very happy you did.

Second Time Just as Wonderful as the First

  • 5 of 5

I needed a week at the beach and rented this property for the second year in a row. It's still just as wonderful as last year. The owners keep this condo in beautiful condition. The transaction went smoothly from signing the contract to paying the rental fee to getting the key. I could stay out on the balcony and look at the Gulf all day. The bed was very comfortable and the air conditioning worked beautifully. This is a great condo complex - very well maintained and quiet. The condo is within walking distance of a tiki bar with evening entertainment, a very nice restaurant and two friendly sports bars. I can't think of a nicer place to stay.

Exactly what we expected

  • 5 of 5

We're familiar with Estero Beach & Tennis Club (EBT), having stayed in a different condo 2 years ago, so we were expecting great views, white sand beaches, and a little peace and quiet.

Bob's place met and often exceeded our expectations. First off, Bob made the transaction simple, and was quick to respond to my questions.

Second, the penthouse offers great views. Being 11 floors up, you're offered a panoramic view east to the Gulf, south down the shoreline, and to the west, inland. I love being in Florida in June because of the thunderstorms that casually pop up. We spent several nights on the balcony with a glass of wine, watching storms off in the distance and a pleasant breeze coming off the Gulf.

EBT is a great location, with plenty of restaurants nearby, a Publix right down the street, and water sports within walking distance. For us, it's the perfect getaway to enjoy a little R&R, and Bob's place made our stay all the more enjoyable.

Cheers!

Owner's Response: Thank you Ben for your great review. Prospective guests should really understand that, while our rates are competitive, they may be able to save a few bucks renting elsewhere......but will they experience the condo comforts PH3A has to offer AND have the GREAT balcony views which are truly a WOW!! Do they want to be unhappy in a terribly located condo, especially one in Building C which has NO pool views and is a 3 minute walk from it? This is yet anohter review which gives testimony to how happy people were at our place. We appreciate your business Ben and hope to hear back again soon re: another reservation. Bob

Wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Bob's condo. Everything is as described - the condo is very comfortable, with great views of the beach, ocean, and Estero Bay. We loved that it was away from the busy north end of the island and the peace and quiet on the stretch of beach just steps from the condo. Just across from the condo complex you can rent kayaks to paddle the mangroves in Estero Bay - a great treat for my husband who grew up around mangroves in S. Africa. Early morning walks with an abundance of bird life and spectacular sunsets were greatly enjoyed.

And Bob was great to work with, minimizing red tape and very accommodating.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Nicole for underscoring the amazing views from our condo balcony. As I have told many people, we have had many guests, and a number of them still go back year after year...........who much prefer our condo's 270 degree panoramic views of the Back Bay, Marina, Bonita, Naples and the Gulf waters.....to the full gulf view condos they had previously rented because the sole view of the Gulf got really boring after a few days, especially at night when it is pitch black outside. Also, the Penthouse level location of our condo is perfect because it allows guests to see OVER the other 2 complex buildings all the way down to Naples. Bob

Perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week in this great condo. It is as described in the listing...unlike others we have been in! Bob is terrific to deal with and his housekeeper Sue is a real pleasure. The place was clean, well equipped and has a balcony that is usable all day (out of the hot afternoon sun!) We will return!
