About Brenda & Rod Howes

As a company owner who helps clients book hotels for their meetings and conferences, we have a lot of experience staying as a guest in hotels and it is our sincerest intention to provide an above average unit for you to enjoy your well earned vacation.

Brenda & Rod Howes purchased this condo in 2014

Why Brenda & Rod Howes chose Fort Myers Beach

Fort Myers Beach (aka Paradise to the locals) simply captured a feeling which we needed to be apart of. Being northern folks, the beach, sun and warmth of Florida was a draw and FMB has a unique way to make you relax from the moment your toes hit the sand.

What makes this condo unique

This unit is 107 yards from the beach. Restaurants and amenities are also within walking distance. The warm gulf breeze and gentle waves make this location perfect for a relaxing getaway.

Great Condo/Studio!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I are from OH and stayed here a few weeks ago. The owners could not have been nicer to work with. Everything in the condo was top notch and nicely decorated. The views were priceless! The condo was spotless and the kitchen is well equipped. We liked the keyless door entry so we didn't have to fight with a key when your hands are full coming in from the beach. Having a cooler, beach chairs, and umbrella already there was yet another selling point for us. We've never been to Ft. Myers Beach, but were glad to discover we were staying on the much nicer, south end of the beach. The pool was very nice too!

We highly recommend this condo!

What a joy and delight to once again stay in your beautiful condo at Estero Beach and tennis Club. The condo was spotless and had everything that you would need for a vacation. Liked the new things you added from last year! The view is just perfect no matter what time of day or season. Perfect location on the 6th floor and love the keyless entry door lock. The owners made it easy to make the arrangements. This is the second time staying here and would definitely recommend it. The south end of the beach is so much more peaceful and quiet. Hope to visit again in the future. God Bless You!

Gulf Coast Sun Fun

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely week we experienced at Estero Beach and Tennis Club! We took it all in...afternoon beverages on the 6th floor balcony with fantastic sunsets, late morning walks on the beach, and tennis on the nicely maintained clay courts in the afternoon.

The condo gave us a lovely gulf panoramic view, was well maintained, comfortable and quiet and well equipped. The electronics were nice and the binoculars were a great discovery for watching the Dolphins parade in the evenings. While I was not a shell seeker, there were many walking the beach each morning with their gathering bags.

The location was wonderful...restaurants across the street for a late morning breakfast, lunch and/or dinner. A CVS pharmacy was perfect for items needed after a run to the Publix grocery a few miles away. You must have key lime pie at the beach, and Publix has an excellent one in the bakery.

Day trips to Naples, Sanibel and Captiva were easy and enjoyable. We had lunch at Doc Ford's Rum Bar and Grill on Sanibel and enjoyed a drive through the nature refuge, Ding Darling's, on the island. Another afternoon was spent on the grounds of the Edison and Ford Museum on McGregor Street...lovely old Fort Myers! We walked to and along the lovely beach in Lover's Key State Park. For beach lovers, this is a lovely spot. Another nice restaurant enjoyed on our way back from the park was Flippers...very close to the condo and lovely on the water.

Finally, I must comment on the friendliness of the people...at the complex, on the beaches and streets and at the airport! This place is a lovely vacation spot! Thanks to the property owners for excellent communication and availability!

It is our goal to ensure our beach home exceeds expectations which gives you time to R&R! Come back anytime! Sincerely, Brenda & Rod PS. Agreed, the Publix key lime pie is a must!

Owner's Response: What lovely words - thank you! Having just spent a week there ourselves...we so understand how amazing the sunsets are. Every chance we have we are perched on the balcony chairs 'overseeing the ebb and flow' of life on the beach. Being on the 6th floor - give us such a perfect unobstructed viewing vantage point. So glad you enjoyed as much as we do... Come back anytime!

Whether you are looking for an active vacation or a relaxing retreat, Fort Myers Beach area can accommodate both. The beach is the main attraction and steps away from our building. Once you arrive, you can leave your car parked. Walking, biking and the trolley are great ways to get around island.
