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.

Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

The unit was extremely clean and very well decorated. We truly enjoyed our stay. The whole complex is very well maintained and the wildlife was amazing. We loved having the binoculars and watching all the birds and dolphins. Since we flew in having the beach chairs, umbrella and cooler was so convenient. Rod & Brenda were a pleasure to work with and I must say this was one of the most relaxing vacations we have had in a while. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful rental and we hope to return again soon!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The week we spent at this condo was perfect! My number one favorite thing was the view from the balcony. It was breathtaking. If you are a bird watcher (which we are) this is the perfect condo for you. We spent a lot of time on the balcony just watching pelican's dive for fish, not to mention the fabulous sunsets and dolphins. I can't think of anything we needed that this condo didn't provide. The bed was really comfortable too. You are centrally located to everything. Lover's Key State Park is only 10 minutes away. Owners are very accommodating and easy to work with!!! All we can say is: we wish we would have booked this condo for two weeks!!!

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely decor, very clean, fabulous appliances in the kitchen, and EVERYTHING vacationers could possibly need. We've stayed in 2 other units over the years and this one is so much superior to the others. Owners are VERY accommodating and easy to work with. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this unit to anyone.

Awesome view!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the Condo and the South end of the island. We have always stayed on the North end of the island. The view is just perfect/ the Condo is very comfortable and nicely decorated. Kitchen well stocked except for a pizza pan. We are probably the only people who take a vacation and cook a frozen pizza, ( haha). The grounds and beach were great, met a lot of nice people. Would have liked a few more towels but outside of that no concerns. Would stay here again and again and again, sure hated leaving.. The whole rental process went well!! Thank you for sharing your beautiful Condo!

Location

Nearest Airport
12.5 Miles
Southwest Florida Intl. (RSW) Fort Myers
Nearest Restaurant
0.2 Miles
Across the street

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.
