Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Mid Island - Cornerstone

1 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 4

This luxurious Ft. Myers Beach one bedroom condo, with direct views of the beach and gulf, is now available for your enjoyment ! Call me directly (Cell 847-331-0504) for more information and to make a reservation. There is a large heated pool servicing 12 individually owned condos, 8 one-bedroom and 4 two-bedroom units. This suite contains a full kitchen, 2 flat screen TVs with HDTV, DVD player, ipod radio, password protected Internet, king size bed, queen size sofa sleeper and a washer/dryer. Views from the screened lanai include breathtaking sunsets, dolphins swimming by, shore birds, boats and parasailers. Once out of the fenced in pool area you will be only steps to the waters edge and we provide the beach towels, beach chairs, small cooler and an umbrella too!

We allow short term rentals for those spur of the moment vacations. Take advantage of those great air fares that are offered in the middle of the week because our rentals are not restricted to Saturday to Saturday check ins or check outs.

We have a management company located 1/2 mile north of Cornerstone that handles credit cards and keys for us. We do not add any fees to our rates except the tourist bed tax. The rate is what you will pay without any add on fees like cleaning, damage, resort or booking fee. The office is open 7 days a week and I have been using them since we bought our condo in 2004. I feel customer service is still important and that it is much better then booking on line. They are there just in case there are any issues that need to be taken care of while you are on vacation. It is peace of mind for me and should be for you too.

Cornerstone is located on Ft. Myers Beach in the desirable mid island location. It is away from the commercial area to allow for a relaxing vacation. Within one mile is the Publix grocery store and the newly renovated Santani Plaza where there are great restaurants and shops. It is easy to go to the Times Square are but also nice to be able to get away from all the tourists and relax out on the beach or at the pool.

There is a welcome packet with Bath and Body soaps, shampoo and conditioner, paper products and enough coffee for your first pot in the morning and Tide for your first load of laundry.

If you want to see some of FL’s best wildlife this is a good place to start. From the condo you can watch pelicans cruising by or dolphins swimming right out in front. Other visitors to our beach included ibis, egrets, gulls, & willets.

Mid-Island water sports is within walking distance and the waverunner dolphin tour is fantastic. For more a more daring treat they also offer parasailing.

Just what we wanted!

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased with everything at the condo. It was just what we wanted for a week of R&R at the beach. The location was great and the condo itself had everything you could want. It was wonderful to be so close to the water and sit on the lanai drink our coffee and watch the dolphins in the morning. We couldn't have had a better vacation. We do hope to spend time there again. I would recommend this place to anyone that needs a good quiet vacation. There are many things to do if you choose, but we don't need much but the beach, a good book and some sun. Had a perfect week. Thank you for providing such a wonderful place.

Owner's Response: We do everything we can to provide our guests with a great spot to vacation but there are some things I have no control over... I can't promise perfect weather or a time when the dolphin will decide to swim by. I'm glad you were able to experience it all! Vacation time is to short to be disappointed in your accommodations. We look forward to your return to Cornerstone...thank you. Lori

Beautiful condo with a great owner!

  • 5 of 5

We were at this condo just for 3 nights but had a wonderful vacation. The condo was clean and everything was as promised in the photos and reviews. The owner was lovely to work with and very prompt in responding to any question. The beach was right there to enjoy the water and to take our morning walks. The sunsets were magnificent and I was able to get some beautiful photos each evening. We loved dining on the patio and watching to sun go down over the horizon. I can't say enough about our wonderful stay. We would definitely stay here again.

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We decided to stay t Cornerstone for a quick weekend getaway. Lori made the process of reservation, check in, and check out very easy and hassle free. The condo itself was fantastic. The condo is equipped with everything you need. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the essentials. What impressed me the most was the cleanliness. I have stayed in other beach properties before, and non came close to how immaculate this place was. The condo was super clean and no musty smell like most of the other places by the beach seem to get. The grounds around the resort were very clean, the weber grill in the common areas was cleaned daily, the pool grounds as well. You have an amazing ocean view from the lanai, its perfect for relaxing watching the beautiful sunset. The location is one of the many things that make this resort so great. You are steps from the powdery white sands of Ft. Myers beach. Can't wait to go back.

Paradise on right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your condo in paradise. We had a great time and it was perfect. The only thing we would suggest is darker blinds in bedroom. It was clean and I loved the little special touches like the towel decoration on bed and bath. Would definitely stay again if we return to the area. Thanks again

Cornerstone a Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a week in Fort Myers Beach at the Cornerstone. It was absolutely perfect. Everything was just as promised. The condo was very clean and equipped with all the basics and even some extras. The bed was super comfortable. We loved the lanai and had a great view of the sunset. I even saw dolphins right in front on two morning. Working with Lori was great - she was very knowledgeable and very responsive. We can't wait to go back.

Just what we needed.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time doing a condo rental for a vacation and we couldn't have been happier with our WHOLE experience - from Lori with our initial contact, the ease of getting our reservation set up and booked and answering all our questions prior to booking. To Perry at check-in with his friendliness, suggestions on restaurants to eat at, directions to stores, attractions/actives and the overall condo itself. We are a fairly young couple (m44 -f38) but my husband was diagnosed with a terminal cancer 4yrs ago and since we have been checking off bucket list items of his while we are able. We wanted someplace where we could relax, get away from daily life for awhile and get back to us "being a couple". This would be his 2nd trip on a plane and 1st to the ocean. I have been ocean front before in other locations, so I was very, VERY picky in what I wanted. This place on paper met all my exceptions but completely exceed our exceptions upon arrival. From the decor, the cleanliness, the view from the lanai (even saw a dolphin our first night), the extras of the cooler, beach chairs, umbrella and the location on the island! At one point of our time there, my husband looked around the condo and said "This place has everything we could ever need - I could live here". Coming from him this means a lot because since his cancer diagnosis he has basically become a home body. The condo had everything you needed in the kitchen from the coffee maker, oven/stove, dishwasher and granite counter tops. The bedrooms were spotless, the bedding clean and more than enough towels in the bathroom. I also met the ground/floor caretaker in the elevator one day and gave him a complement on how well the grounds looked and the cleanliness of the floors, pool, parking and grill area. We loved how quite with area was but also how close it was to the city center, downtown and restaurants. Our only complaint (but more of a suggestion) was to have ceiling fans on every lanai - with the unit we were in we didn't always get the breeze sitting out there during the day or early evenings. Overall, we loved Cornerstone Resort and God willing would defiantly go back again, hands down.

Owner's Response: Oh Jennifer, I am so glad you and Mike had a chance to enjoy all Cornerstone has to offer. I know how precious vacation time has become and we really try to make it as stress free as possible. Our lanai's are perfect (well almost perfect) with unobstructed views of the beach and gulf and I think it is a sign of good luck to see a dolphin swimming by on your first night too! I will pass on your compliments to Perry, Grant and the housekeeping staff because your vacation is as important to them as it is to me. I can't promise a fan on the lanai next time you come but I do take suggestions from guests very seriously. A few years ago one mentioned that we had everything for the beach-- beach chairs, umbrella and beach towels but they had to go buy a small cooler. A cooler was something I hadn't even thought of but from then on all of our condos have small coolers--and can kozzies too! Thank you for taking the time to write a review (I never ask and am always surprised to see one posted) and good luck in the future. We love having repeat guests and hope you and Mike are among them. Lori
