What makes this apartment unique

This property is located on the beach side of Estero Blvd making it just steps to the beach and Gulf Of Mexico. Close to downtown so need to drive to get to the restaurants, shopping, and entertainment. Etc. Fort Myers Beach also provides a trolley system that runs the length of the island so you can visit the south end of the island or the Northern tip of Bowditch Point

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello again Tina - just wanted to drop u a quick note to tell u what a wonderful time we had in FMB! The apartment was just great! We left our two beach chairs on the balcony so either future tenants or u could enjoy them as much as we did! Thank u again so much! -c-

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I felt in love with the studio. It has been remodeled with a great taste.

The building is under construction and we understand and didn't bother us. We were just few steps from the beach and had a lots of places to go and eat.

The neighbors are all friendly, specially the young man that lives in the building. He told us that if we need anything to ask him about the area, also he said if he makes noises to go and knock on his door. We never heard anything.

We are planning for a next visit sometime next year.

Thank you

Great Location, nicely renovated studio, neighbors not so great

  • 2 of 5

First the good:

This is a great location on Fort Meyers Beach. Within walking distance to Times Square, restaurants, bars, and the beach is right there

Studio as stated has been recently renovated, looks identical to the pictures and is nice minus a few non-working items (see below)

Laundry is right across the hall which is good and bad (see below for bad)

The A/C worked great and kept the studio nice and cool which was nice since it was very hot and humid during our stay

There were nice beach chairs, beach towels, and a small cooler in the closet

The Bad:

The unit under this studio is being renovated and there were two nights that they worked till about 10pm. While this didn't bother us since we were out at night this could bother others, especially if they decide to work more often

The people doing the renovation seemed to be living there as well (we believe the building is split between tenant and rentals), we saw the same man and women every night / morning plus other random men throughout our stay. They decided to have a screaming / swearing argument on Saturday and Sunday night around midnight, but none of the other nights

The stairs and the hallway leading to the studio is under construction, the carpet on the stairs is filthy, there's drywall that's hung but not finished and there was a door, lamp, and dirty towels in the hall the whole time of our stay

The bathroom outlet, outlet by the TV, outlets behind the bed did not work (I left a note for the owners so hopefully they are fixed)

The oven did not work, when we walked in the display had what looked like an error code on it. The burners work though (also left a note on this)

On Saturday and Sunday night people decided to do their laundry between 2:00-4:00am. It's right across from the studio and they weren't quite about it, slamming the door, running into the studio door, and then there are beeps when both are done

Outside there was a mattress, broken tile, and other garbage laying on the ground outside the unit being renovated. Not what you want to see on your walk to the beach

A couple nights the hall was filled with smoke smell

So while the location is great and the studio itself was great we would not book a return stay unless we knew all renovations were complete. Maybe once all the renovations are complete it will be a great place to stay. But until then be aware that on the weekends it might not be the best spot and outside the studio needs work

this is alot to read, but you WON'T regret it please read this!

  • 1 of 5

The room is EXACTLY as pictured and it is so cozy and cute in the room and not to mention very clean! and the bathroom looks newly renovated (very clean also) and very close to the beach! , but unfortunately that's where the good time stopped for me and my boyfriend :( I would have absolutely LOVED to give this place a great review because the room was so great, but I cant , I want to be fair and let people know of our experience so they don't end up as disappointed as us. whoever lives (or stays) directly underneath the room that we stayed in, they were EXTREMELY RUDE and 100% inconsiderate of the people who paid a good amount of money to get away for the weekend (like my boyfriend and I) our very first night there we were getting back from dinner and into bed and we hear yelling (we don't mind people having a good time but this was overboard) and not just yelling having a good time but angrily yelling and cursing, we took it upon ourselves to listen to their conversation , (thank goodness we did) we overheard one of the people say "lets call a tow truck" and the next person said " lets slice the tires of this white truck" which is when we got concerned because MY TRUCK is white! so we run downstairs as fast as we could to try to stop them. when we get out side , I see one of the guys flick a LIT CIGARETTE on the hood of my truck landing on my wind shield wiper, while all the other people were crowding around my truck and yelling , Cody (my boyfriend) asks them if there was a problem and they said "yeah you can't park here" (not to mention there were no signs saying where we can or cant park and no one informed us of this ) we proceed to tell them that we are renting the room upstairs for the weekend and they apologize . These are the TRASHIEST people I have ever seen. I guess they were the maintenance crew or something that stay in the little room below us, anyways , the washer and dryer are DIRECTLY in front of our front door (about 3 feet) and these same people were doing laundry at about 01:00 A.M. talking loud and SMOKING (this is INDOORS, when we read the description we were promised a non smoking unit) filling our room with cigarette smoke! we had to get out of bed and open the doors to the patio and shove towels under the front door to the hallway... it was not good. After all of this happened we felt extremely uncomfortable the rest of the trip :( not fair for those who pay & travel 5 hours to have fun and end up getting disrespected!

Owner's Response: We work very hard to make our place a relaxing space for people to enjoy. Our rooms are updated, clean, and well kept. It is unfortunate that this incident was not brought to our attention until 4 days after the guest checked out or we would have done our best to make amends. There was a gentleman and his wife in the unit below for a week who was one of our staff members who is no longer with us as a tenant or an employee amends.

Charming Studio

  • 4 of 5

The studio was very clean and actually very charming. Within walking distance to restaurants, shopping, and the beach. Bike rentals close by. We cooked most meals in, and enjoyed them out on the balcony. The washer and dryer were directly across the hall which was awesome. It had everything we needed and more.

We both really enjoyed our stay except for the fact that it was spring brake. Probably not the smartest thing we ever did, but we really had no issues except maybe traffic. Some of the traffic was actually due to ongoing construction which should have been halted during spring brake.

If just the two of us ever return to Fort Myers Beach, I believe we would rent the same unit, just not during spring brake.

The building inside and outside was undergoing renovation. The room we stayed in was completed but it’s a small efficiency that works for two people. Unfortunately, the week we were there, Estero Blvd was under construction, which made traffic an issue.

Beautiful Beach Side Condo

  • 5 of 5

What a nice place!

I stayed here for 10 weeks throughout the summer of 2015, and could not have enjoyed my time anymore than I did. The new renovations look fantastic, and the management team is top notch. Tina and Joe are great people, and excellent to work with.

Should you visit Ft Myers, I highly recommend staying at this unit, or at any of Joe's other properties. You won't be let down.

Thanks again!
