Overview

About the property

Fully equipped, no pets or smoking, rentals minimum 7 days, max 2 guests

Great direct gulf views!!! WiFi in unit. Our unit number is 1104C. Remodeled kitchen that includes a dishwasher and all the other conveniences to make you feel at home. We also have HDTV and DVD Player with a nice selection of movies.

The Kitchen is fully-equipped. Towels/linens are provided (see amenities below) including beach towels! We also have beach chairs, beach umbrella, bocci balls and cooler for the beach. There is a large heated pool with luxurious sun deck and a lovely grassy area for additional crowd-free sunning or sports activities. Access to the beach is only a few steps after you exit the building.

We rent Saturday to Saturday except for July, Aug and Sept. Also, our condominium association requires a minimum of 7 days rental.

Restaurants, medical care, CVS drug store, marina, kayak rental are just across the street. There is also a 7-11 easy walking distance. The beach trolley is only 50 cents (25 cents senior citizens) and will take you from one end of the beach to the other and to Lovers Key park several miles down the road. There are two Supermarkets on the island. There is a Catholic Church & several Protestant Churches just up the street.

Enjoy four, well manicured (Har-Tru's ) tennis courts on property at this prestigious private Beach and Tennis Club. Cook out on the free gas grills on the deck in the bottom floor of our building. From your balcony, view many species of colorful birds to see such as pelicans, egrets, osprey, and herons as well as dolphins swimming in the surf.

NOTE: Please notice the difference between the views of our unit and some of the other units also advertised in VRBO. You don't have to look sideways to have water views.

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!

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.The Wyndham Gardens Hotel 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 entertainment. There are also a number of good restaurants and bars right across the street in Santini Plaza as well.

The unit was everything as advertised. It was beautiful, clean and had everything that we needed.

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with condo from moment we stepped through the door. The unit was spacious for two people. The king size bed was comfortable. The kichen was equipped with everything we needed. Loved the cabinets and fixtures. All we had to do was unpack and enjoy. It was quite and so relaxing. The view was breathtaking. I couldn't get enough of the water waves and sounds. We spent much of our time sitting on the lani when we weren't at the beach. Unfortunately we did not see any dolphins. The sea shells were amazing finding a few to bring home. The pool was warm and inviting the way I love it and the people were friendly. Checking in and out was seamless. I loved not worrying about carrying or loosing keys. The building was secure and safe. The owners also were very prompt in returning our deposit.

This was our first visit to Estero Beach/Fort Myer area and we loved it. It was quite with less tourists compared to other places we've stayed previously. There is a strip mall nearby where we ate a few times and the food was delicious. Otherwise we drove to the store for groceries and explored the area. We recommend Love Boat for homemade ice cream. It was the best. Always crowded but worth the wait. We will definitely be back next May. Thanks again for sharing your vacation home!

Highly Recommended

It was a wonderful vacation. The condo was very clean, quiet and comfortable. Beautiful view of the Gulf and a VERY short walk to the beach. Everyone that we met at the complex was friendly, helpful and polite.

Lovely Unit and the Location can't be beat

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely apartment with stunning views. A beautiful sunset every night.

I recommend the Location to anybody looking for a nice peaceful getaway.

The location is just far enough away to avoid the hustle and bustle of constant foot and car traffic. A quick bike ride will get you to the "hub" in no time.

Many restaurant options nearby, easy access to tour pick up locations. Boat rental directly across the street. Grocery shopping nearby as well the full shop pharmacy a short walk away.

Direct beach access. Air conditioning available if necessary. Ceiling fans came in handy - we did have unusually warm weather the week we visited - we had these on the entire time. No complaints there.

A beautiful breeze from the ocean made for lovely evenings spent on the balcony watching the sunset.

Chairs and umbrella (with sand stand) are in the unit for use as well a handy roller cart for taking your wares to set up at the beach. Also rackets (tennis courts available for use), a Frisbee and I believe a set of bocce (lawn bowling) balls in the storage cupboard.

There are loungers around the pool and in the sunning areas on the lawn for open use. Communal BBQ is available to you, you can check from the balcony to see if it is being used before heading down.

Laundry facilities available. Pots, pans, cutlery and dishes handy for whipping up a nice dinner. Freezer Ice maker as well. Drip coffee maker that made really good coffee. Hairdryer, towels supplied, good Wifi, and a Variety of TV stations to chose from. Everything you need to get by for a week.

Unit is exactly as shown in the photos and all information was readily provided by Mike for easy access to the unit with no worry.

Don't hesitate to book this unit. This is the first place I will look into next time we are in the area.
