Why Carol Manteris chose Fort Myers

The unique nature of this condo is the level of Privacy....Look out your dining area, living area, and master BR, and you would think you are all alone with the small island and water view. And the sunsets are spectacular. Photos cannot do it justice.

What makes this condo unique

Cook in or cook out....this location has it all for dining in, and easy access to nearby restaurants. Accommodates either preference.

We just spent 6 weeks at this condo. Above our expectations, nicely furnished, comfortable, quiet location, and peaceful. End unit gives you extra light from side windows and sliding glass doors by dining area. Great view of ponds and golf course green directly across from the lanai. Has a nice grass area between lanai and pond.

Grill is between this and next bldg. Pool is never overly crowded, so it's great for meet and chat. Everyone we met there was very cordial.

Gulf Coast Center (mostly restaurants, has theater), Miramar Outlets, and Coconut Point Mall all within 20 minutes. Plenty of dinning nearby, some with live entertainment.

Ft Myers beach is about 45 minutes, most of that is getting across the bridge, coming back is about 25 minutes.

Our hostess is by far the nicest owner we have dealt with in our stays in Florida.

We are definitely returning.

2016 Stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved the time we spent at The Forest, the unit was everything we expected. We joined The Forest Country Club for two months and the golf was fantastic as well as the food. The condo was conveniently located, right off US 41, so we could get everywhere quickly. When we go back, we'll definitely be contacting the owners to see if it is available. Loved it!

We loved it

  • 5 of 5

We found the condo a really nice place to stay. It was clean, spacious, and comfortable. The décor was lovely and not "cheap". The location was quiet, but right near the main drag in Fort Myers so it was convenient to all sorts of shops and restaurants.

Please recognize that it is not on the beach and that you will need a car. Still, it feels like you are staying in a nature reserve at the Forest (the name of the development). Our favorite part was sitting on the Lanai having a cup of tea while looking at all the birds in the canal.

The only down side would be that we found the beds a bit uncomfortable. The twin beds were rock hard and the king bed was too soft. Sounds like Goldylocks, right?

Our hostess/landlady was very nice and accommodating. She really tried to make us feel comfortable.

We would definitely stay there again and recommend it highly.

Loved The Forest!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great vacation!! The condo was beautifully decorated and furnished. Everything was spotless! The master suite was to die for!! The king size bed was more comfy than mine at home!! My daughter & her hubby pushed the 2 twins together to make their own king!! My grandson slept in the den and liked having his own "bedroom" with a TV!! The weather was 80 or 85 all the while we were there. There is nothing like having coffee on the lanai with the beautiful private view. One of the best things was the gas BBQ Grill only a few steps from the condo. The pool is only a skip & hop away. The pool is very well maintained and the outdoor furniture was very comfortable. The Forest is so close to everything! The beach is only a few minutes away, as are all the restaurants and shopping mall. I really felt very safe at The Forest and the gate attendant was very friendly and even told us where to order the best delivery Pizza! The fishing was great too. My son caught 11 in one day! This was the best family vacation we ever had. Hope we can do it again next year!

Winter home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year of renting Carol's condo. We love it! Coming from Toronto in winter the weather has always been perfect. The condo is so comfortable in all ways. Beautifully decorated with Carol's personal touch. Nothing but the best! Located on the grounds of Forest Country Club amoungst a setting of variety of trees and amazing landscaping.

The wildlife is abundant as observed from the lanai. Great way to enjoy a cocktail or two.

We look forward to returning for many years to come.
