About Rosie

HI! My name is Susan Moran. I will tell you about me below, but first, I invite you to call me personally if you have any questions about The SeaCrest Condo. I am happy to answer any questions that you may have - about the beach, about the condo, or about the area in general.

About me: I grew up in Mount Prospect Illinois and attended Prospect High School...where I was class president & class clown! I attended Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin (BSBA- Marketing) During my senior year I was visiting home and happened to meet a wonderful man from the West of Ireland. He had come to Chicago to see where he had been born. Tom was born in Chicago but moved to County Mayo, Ireland when he was two years old.

Long story short, that Irish accent melted my heart, and we have been married for over 25 years now. We have two lovely children and two dogs --

Our fist born is Sarah. She attends Indiana University studying Psychology & Business. She is pledging Chi Omega and having a blast! She will be studying & traveling abroad spring 2017.

Our son, Michael, is 18 now and in his senior year of high school where he is breaking hearts, playing football as well as tennis. He has not yet decided on a college, but is getting both nervous and excited to leave the nest.

We bought The SeaCrest condo in 2004 because we loved all the windows and the magnificent views of the beach. We also liked that it was NOT a part of a large condo complex and the beach front pool, which is rare and wonderful!

Over the years we have had the privilege of meeting so many wonderful guests that now feel like family. We truly look forward to your arrival, and are proud to share our little piece of heaven with all of you - proud that our home is your home away from home.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for touching our lives and our family and making this place so special.

Wishing God's Blessings upon you and yours,

Susan

Rosie purchased this condo in 2004

Why Rosie chose Fort Myers Beach

One of the wonderful & rare features of this lovely condo is that it has a beachfront pool that was "grandfathered in" before beachfront pools were no longer permitted.

This condo feels much more like a beach cottage than it does a condo. Almost all of the condos we looked at had three solid walls and one large window facing the beach. This particular condo has three outside walls, so the living area, kitchen, and bedrooms all have great sun light and beach views.

We also removed some walls and added floor to ceiling sliding glass doors so that the entire condo could be opened to the beach. We then added floor to ceiling windows where a solid wall used to be in the living area. We finished the extensive remodeling about a week before hurricane Charley took the roof off the building, and we had to start all over again!!!

Anyways, it has been worth it all. We love the condo and the north end of Ft. Myers Beach is so unique.

The new bike paths, lush roadside plantings, new roads, electric & storm system are now complete, and wonderful! Bowditch State Park at the north end of the island are

What makes this condo unique

Where to begin? Decor is so fresh and beachy -- beds are heavenly

love the kitchen looking out on the water

Location can't be beat- rare beachfront pool

Sugar white sands of Ft. Myers Beach

But, probably the best feature of this little piece of paradise is the folks that you meet that are your neighbors back home --

"The sand will wash from your toes, your tan will fade but the memories and friends you make will last forever "

Well, we didn't get to stay at this property as there was water damage just prior to us arriving.

  • 5 of 5

No worries though because Rosie was "to the rescue!" She had us alternate accomidations and it was superb ! We had one of the best vacations my family has had in a very long time and it was all because of the effort the staff put in on getting a place for us to stay even before our arrival time. No glitches and a great time had by all from 5 years old to 58 and we were able to enjoy our 39th anniversary with peace and much enjoyment. Don't ever hesitate to rent accomidations from this owner and manager ! Five Stars and more if I could !!

Overall a really nice place...

  • 4 of 5

The unit has a wonderful view and it's well furnished. Granite countertops, a decent sized TV selection in the family room and master, and an outfitted kitchen. Kona is a unique place, it's very small so you can keep an eye on your kids, etc... The beds were comfortable, too. Most importantly, my wife loved how it was decorated so kudos.

In July it's nearly impossible to keep a unit cool with that many exterior walls, so no big deal on the temp. Besides, if you are there you should be at the beach - which is literally right out the window. The dryer needs to be repaired - it makes a loud noise, and the air mattress really isn't an acceptable option.

Overall, it's a really nice place, great for kids and worth a second visit - so thanks.

Great view. More details...

  • 4 of 5

Loved the gulf front location. Great visuals from this rental, all day long... Had everything we needed. Even coffee and sugar for first breakfast, dishwasher detergent, etc. Comfortable place to chill for a week, which is just what we wanted. View of the Gulf from 2nd bedroom, kitchen, living room! Umbrella for the beach, nice touch, the nib or pointed end (to wedge in the sand was broken off). Pool was great, very social too. Best unit in the building! Sweet, perfect kitchen, granite-stainless, big. Decor was very nice, pictures do not do it justice. Walked along beach to point everyday, then walked to pier. Saw so much marine life in the tide pools at dusk. Dryer squeaks constantly while in use. We loved our stay.

We had to clean the bath towels that we used before we left, which was odd but I guess a time saver for cleaning crew. Once white the towels are now dingy gray. Appliances in the condo: cheap toaster, barely worked, cheap blender, could not make smoothies in it. Curtains in 2nd bedroom are thick with dust and we could never get the lamp in there to work. Umbrella for the beach, nice touch, the nib or pointed end (to wedge in the sand was broken off). There are sand toys, like a shovel which enabled us to dig a hole to secure umbrella, for shade. Could use a cookie sheet, the only oven ware was glass. These derogatory remarks are just things to note or for the owner to upgrade. It did not detract from the beauty, location and other niceties about the place.

Superb and comfortable accommodations with a scenic view of the beach!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very pleasant 11-night state at this property. The condo was excellent! It appeared to be very recently renovated and was very comfortable and felt completely like home. Two good size bedrooms, well-equipped kitchen, and we particularly liked the lanai with a view on the beach. Plenty of bath and beach towels as well as other ample beach supplies (beach chairs, umbrellas, sand toys...etc) were provided.

We also liked that the property is in a somewhat small low-rise building, hence there were never many people at the pool. We liked the property location, too, on a quiet part of the beach far enough away from the hustle and bustle of downtown; hence there were never many people at the beach near the property, either. Yet, downtown was easily reachable by short enough walk (7-10 minutes).

The pool is somewhat small, but that was not important to us - we were much more interested in the beach, which was literally steps away.

All in all, we absolutely loved everything about our stay - the location, the condo, and the property; and would highly recommend it.

I know you're nervous in booking, but this was a great place...

  • 4 of 5

Extremely convenient to the beach with great sea life activity. Condo was clean and quite comfy with a beachfront view and outdoor dining area. Pool is small, but very clean. Furniture and kitchen were nice and we were not disappointed. Would book again. This is an understated place and if you are looking for the Ritz, this isn't it, but it is certainly clean, up to date and everything you would want in a family beach vacation. We are very happy with the amenities. WiFi was not good, but really, that's what I needed a vacuum from! Susan was quick to answer answer any emails. We will be back, thanks!

Our winter home away from snow

  • 5 of 5

Two years ago, I searched for a place we could vacation, but also live normally for two weeks. After pouring over the photos, I was certain this was that place. When we checked in the first time last year, I thought the pictures didn't do it justice. It is a beautifully decorated home. It's got everything you need. It is well-organized and I love that it's so easy to put things where they belong during our stay. It's right on the beach in a great location on the quiet end of things.

The owner takes great pride in this property and any issues are addressed quickly.

We recently stayed for our second two week getaway and are in the process of booking our third. We will look forward to it all year!

Location

Nearest Airport
20 Miles
Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW)
Nearest Beach
Beachfront
Car: not necessary

There are so many fabulous sights to see and places to experience it is difficult to choose the highlights.

Golf anyone? There are over sixty five golf courses in a fifty mile vicinity. For a quarter you can enjoy the beach trolley which will bring you from one end of seven mile Ft. Myers Beach to the other. On the far north end is Bodich Park, a beach dedicated to natural preserve. Also on the north end is Times Square which is a very fun wharf area with a fishing pier, beach side casual dining, music, dancing, shopping and street performers. Kids love the playground near Times Square, the pirates ship and the homemade candy and ice cream shop. Hop back on the trolley and travel to the south end of Ft.Myers beach and over the bridge to experience the newly adorned beautiful Lover's Key State Park. Rent wave runners, parsail, mopeds, bikes and boats. Kayak tours of the bay. Mini golf, deep sea fishing and shelling! Watch dolphins and manatees in the canal. Rent a beach cabana!
