About Keith & Karen Baumgartner

Keith and I have been married for 37 years and have lived in the western suburbs of Chicago our entire lives. We have been fortunate to travel extensively and love the beach, golf, fishing and sunshine!

Keith & Karen Baumgartner purchased this condo in 2013

Why Keith & Karen Baumgartner chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

After searching up and down the Florida coasts for five years, we finally visited Fort Myers Beach and knew this was the place that fit us perfectly! We love the laid back atmosphere - no dressing up - just a swimsuit or shorts and we can go almost anywhere! And our adult children and grandchildren love it too! From restaurants and bars to the local ice cream shop....who could ask for more! In December, 2013 we were able to purchase the condo of our dreams - we hope you will enjoy our little piece of paradise as much as we do!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Extremely clean, beautifully decorated, very comfortable, great location, well stocked kitchen ~ just perfect! The Bay to Beach staff was extremely friendly and the unit seemed secure. We loved our experience and will definitely be back!

Perfect vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

The location was great, close to the bridge, shops, dining, and the beach, of course. The view was beautiful, with unobscured views of the beach and gulf. The screened in patio was a plus.

This 2nd floor condo was spacious. There was lots of storage for your clothes and bags. The kitchens and baths were stocked with things you might need. And, the owners were very responsive. We really loved this place.

Girls Vacation !

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from 4 wonderful days at Bay to Beach- Aruba 2 condo. Had a wonderful time with friends ! The condo was roomy, comfortable and clean. Had everything you needed for a great vacation. The location of the condo, couldn't have been more convenient to restaurants and entertainment. Also, the office staff (Kat), was wonderful to work with ! So, if you like the beach, a great location and clean and well decorated condo, Arubu 2 is for you !

This condo was everything we expected! The condo was very clean and well maintained. The beach was right outside of our door. We loved walking to all the shops at time square. It was a wonderful place to stay and we will be back!

Owner's Response: Always good to hear when our guests love their vacation and staying in our condo. We try very hard to keep it clean and up to date. Since your visit we have replaced our dining table, chairs and occasional pieces.... Hope you can return.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in this condo for 5 nights and had a wonderful experience! Everything in the condo description was accurate upon check-in.....we had everything we needed and more! With two boys (ages 15 and 11), having the washer and dryer IN the condo was very convenient! We enjoyed it so much that we plan to return in July 2016.

My only suggestion is that you might want to go ahead and bring your own beach umbrella. While there are some provided down by the office, we found that there were not enough for each family staying in the building to have their own. We only saw 4 during our stay, with one being broken. After two days of trying to beat the other guests down early each morning to get an umbrella, we just went and bought our own.
