Awesome vacation!

June 22, 2015

We had a wonderful time! The condo was just as described. Very clean, comfortable and relaxing. Tom was super friendly, as was the other visitors at the Riptide. Everything was within walking distance, the food was great at every place we dined, and the sunsets on the beach were beautiful every evening. This was one of the best vacations that we have had and hope to come back soon! Thanks so much, Raeann and Heath, for allowing us to stay at your condo. It was a delightful experience!!

My mom,son and I stayed in unit 11 and its was just perfect. The location is unbeatable, Tom the on site guy is amazing! My son just adored him and he even sang happy birthday with us. We were so pleased with the place, the location and Tom that we will be sure to come back ASAP! We will miss it in the mean time. I would recommend this place to everybody and anybody I know! Hope to see them very soon! Thanks for all the good memories!

Fort Myers beach Condo.

December 22, 2014

We enjoyed our 7 nights in Fort Myers Beach. The condo we rented was as described. Clean and functional which is what we wanted for this time of year. Not really pool weather. Tom is on property at all times and very helpful. I would come back here again because its right across the street from beach. The sand is like baby powder and so clean. We had a short walk to local shops and restaurants. I love the idea of bands and local musicians playing in the restaurants and the square, it feels very Caribbean. .

Incredible!

September 7, 2014

I'll begin by saying the condos are a mere 196 feet from the beach. Simply cross the road and you're there! Our stay was during the off-season, so the rates couldn't be beat, town was rather quiet, and the beach was practically empty. That said, there were still plenty of things going on--it was just more peaceful than it would be during season. Tom greeted us as soon as we pulled up and was extremely helpful and hospitable during our stay. There were bicycles on-site free to use and kayaks for $25 per day--I would really recommend taking advantage of these. The location of the condos was perfect. It was a bit farther down the island than the larger resorts, which we really liked as it meant the beach was much more quiet. Even being a bit further away, we were still a short walk from Times Square and all the wonderful eateries in town (Nervous Nellie's is a MUST! They have a huuuuge menu, really good prices, and very generous portions.) The condo itself was quaint and homey, and the kitchen had every appliance and utensil we could have needed. The balcony offered the perfect spot to watch the sun rise or set. Needless to say, we were extremely impressed by Tom's hospitality as well as the great quality and location of the condo itself, as well as the Fort Myers Beach area, in general. It will likely be a year, but we will most definitely be returning as soon as we have another opportunity. If you're looking for a place to stay in the area, steer clear of high-rise resorts and your typical hotels and choose a unit in Riptide Condos. You won't regret it!

heath alboher

Owner's reply:

Wow. Folks are gonna think I paid you to say all those wonderful things. I am so glad you had a great time. The condo will be ready for you next year or sooner 😎

Perfect Location!

May 7, 2014

First time to Fort Myers Beach and everything was perfect. We stayed in unit 11 and it was so cute! Love the colour choice and little touch of beach everywhere. Tom was a great source for info, advice and stories. We had perfect weather every day and perfect sunsets every night. We tried our luck fishing in the canal and caught a snook and a small sting ray. The community lounge area is so nice. Wish we had more time and energy to take advantage of the BBQ, but with so many great restaurants in the area we couldn't pass those up. The only inconveniences were the bathroom is only a large 3 piece, no tub but full shower, the bedroom tv didn't work (Tom is still waiting for the company to fix it), the air conditioner is a little noisy at nigh; Even on the Eco-mode it goes on and off often. Parking for the unit, in a small SUV, wasn't the best. The height of our vehicle, and angle of the stairs, keeps you closer to the middle posts where bicycles are secured and a lot of the rental items are piled along the other side so backing in is a little tight. We never had any issues but if you're very protective of your car not getting scratched you may be nervous parking there. Tom could probably hook you up with an alternative spot. Despite these minor things, we really enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning in the future. Thank you Heath and Raeann for allowing us to enjoy your little retreat and thank you Tom and Riptide Condos for having us.

Fantastic Location!

The one bedroom condo was located just steps away from the beach as advertised. The unit had everything needed and the on-site manager was very helpful. We had a fantastic week and hope that we can return next year!

heath alboher

Owner's reply:

Thanks for the great comments. Your kids look like fun in the sun. I am glad you joined the "happy hour" crew as my folks go down every year and enjoy the Riptide folks and the sun and sand. Things are booking up for 2015 so let me know so we can put something aside. Thanks again for the kind words. heath and Raeann

convenient location

November 29, 2012

It is close to Time Square,beach & on the canal; which is very convenient because you don't need a car. Is beautifully decorated, clean,owner is on site if you have any questions or need something. Great for two people. Only drawback is the refrigerator makes a noise when it comes on and would wake us during the nite.

Glad you had a great time. We will take care of that fridge!

My wife and i had a great time on our honeymoon at Riptide Condos. The weather was great! It was right across the street from the beach, and just a short walk to several restraunts and shops. The onsite manager/owner Tom was wonderful. He is a very helpful and friendly man. We rented the kayaks and had fun on the ocean, even saw dolphins. Next time we will rent the boat and go farther offshore. Wi-Fi wasn't free, but it was only $15 for the week. We highly recommend riptide condos

Great little getaway!

December 17, 2008

My husband and I enjoyed a great little getaway at the Riptide Condos in Fort Myers Beach. The unit we rented was a small 1 bedroom with kitchenette. The room was clean and comfortable and close to "Times Square" and the beach. The folks at the Riptide were friendly and accomodating and the price was right for our more modest budget. I would recommend this condo for couples or single folks looking for a quiet spot close to the beach.

Our stay at the beach condo was great. We were able to fish and kayak directly on the property and its only 400 feet to the beach! The location is ideal for parking your car for the week and walking everywhere you could possibly want to go. I highly recommend this property.
