Fort Myers Beach occupies all of what is known as Estero Island, just 10 miles from both downtown Fort Myers and the Southwest Florida International Airport. The island ��s south side faces the Gulf of Mexico and has miles of beaches. However, the best beach in the area is on Lover ��s Key in the state park on the island. This is an excellent place if you are at all interested in nature as there are many birds living in the mangrove forests here. This also happens to be a great spot for shelling. The Estero Bay side of the island is best viewed by boat or kayak, either of which may be rented in the area. There are many uninhabited keys within the bay that play host to hundreds of different species of birds, plants and mammals. If you are interested in fishing you can simply cast a line from the piers and docks here in Fort Myers Beach or you can arrange a charter fishing guide to help you land the big one. If you are interested in seeing the coastline a bit more some popular day trips include Sanibel and Captiva Islands to the north or Naples to the south. The shopping and dining scene on Fort Myers Beach is excellent. There are many shopping plazas along the island from Times Square in the north to Lover ��s Key in the south. And after a busy day enjoying Estero Island you can watch the sunset in the western sky from your own vacation home in Fort Myers Beach. Island Trivia

Fort Myers Beach: Welcome to the beautiful barrier islands of Fort Myers Beach-Estero Island and San Carlos Island – where the sun shines nearly every day and the average temperature is 74 degrees. Beaches are probably the No.1 attraction, with the turquoise blue to bright green waters of the Gulf of Mexico lapping at the silky, white sands and seashells – for the collector in everyone. Called the “world’s safest beach”, it’s an ideal site for family vacations, for there are no steep drop-offs, riptides or undertows.
Everywhere you go, wildlife is abundant. Shore birds such as egrets,pelicans,spoonbills,seagulls and herons are found near every body of water, from the gulf to the back bay. Sometimes, even the bald eagle can be spotted soaring over our islands. Fishing and boating are popular pastimes for residents and visitors alike – there are even restaurants you can get to by boat for lunch on (or near) the high seas. Yes, the comforts of civilization are evident as well. The multitude of fine restaurants provide palate-tempting menus for every meal of the day.
Fine shops with their unique souvenirs, gifts and apparel offer delights for every taste and budget – and all are staffed with friendly, enthusiastic help ready to answer your queries.

Incredible views. Clean, convenient and comfortable. Great bird watching, and I didn't think I like birds! This condo had chairs for beach, the "noodles" and rafts for the water, AND all the amenities of home. I absolutely love it!

Don and Karen, We both want to thank you for the wonderful experience and vacation. The condo was just lovely and the views, they speak for themselves. We met others that were staying in the area and had a great time. The residents are so friendly and it was so nice to have shopping and dining in such close proximity. We found a few places to eat we hadn't tried yet. The beach was wonderful, warm waters, lovely breezes and we were very lucky and had great weather our entire stay. We both enjoyed watching the sunrise, the dolphins swimming each morning and the gorgeous sunsets each night. Just breath taking. The condo was so nice and the beach chairs and other goodies were great. We also added to the collection so others could enjoy them too. We hope to return to SWFL later in the year and if we do get the opportunity, we are looking forward to staying at your place again. We both have given your information to our friends and expressed that they will love their stay as much as we loved ours. Thank you so much for your kindness and generousity. We are looking forward to our next relaxing time there.

Dear Karen: Carmen and I had a wonderful stay at your condo. The property was clean and well-maintained as we expected. We thank you for your courteous e-mails with updated information necessary to confirm and enjoy our stay. The condo location was well within walking distance for shopping, eating and other entertainment activities. We had the opportunity to meet other couples that rented and some that reside in the Estero Beach and Tennis Club that were very friendly and shared kind and helpful experiences. I must honestly say the ocean view from your condo was just breath taking. We look forward to our next vacation and would highly recommend your condo to anyone looking for an enjoyable stay at Fort Myers Beach. Sincerely, Carmen & Tony

Guestbook

My wife and I just returned after spending 10 days in this beautiful condo over looking Fort Myer's beach! We had never stayed on the island before, so we were not familiar with all the nuances of the different locations and where the best place for us would be. I must say that we hit the bulls eye blind folded. The condo was very personally appointed with beach decor and everything we needed to feel at home was there. The south end of the island is much more relaxed and the private beach was much nicer than the mega resorts down by the village square. We did walk the whole length of beach and back (by accident the trolley didnt run on X Mas Day) and liked our location the best. There is a very convenient strip mall across the street with 5 or 6 bars and restaurants that we enjoyed. The Sand Bar is a pretty cool sports type bar with decent food and Castaways features live music several nights a week. The one band I did hear there was really good!! This area is really convenient for exiting to the south and going to Bonita Springs area which we personally liked opposed to the really busy N side of the island.......Traffic can be tough going that way certain times of the day. Karen was awesome to work with and very informative of local tips......(rum chata) All in all if you want to kick back and relax, enjoy all the amenities of home, and have one of the best views of the island......you will not be disappointed!!! Thank You Karen!!

Karen and Don have a wonderful place that makes you feel as though you're home. Everything you need down to the towels are provided for you so all you need is your swim suit and your toothbrush. The views are amazing and you get the back bay view and the Gulf view. We loved having coffee on the lanai and watching for dolphins. Again you have exceeded our expectations. We will be back in May. We really recommend going down to Lovers Key and spending the day at their beach also.Thanks for the wonderful memories..

When you first walk through the door you are greeted by the mile(s) long view of Ft Myers beach and the wonderful, glistening Gulf of Mexico. You are drawn to the balcony, where you stand and take in all the view from this wonderful 12th floor unit. Then you pinch yourself, and it hurts! So it really is true! You have a great gulfront condo all to yourself and there is nothing but miles and miles of beach and ocean views and that wonderful gulf breeze welcoming you home. That was how I felt everytime I walked through the door of this unit. The pictures don't do justice to being there firsthand! This unit has everything we needed for our weeklong + stay. The new kitchen was well appointed and had the right amount of cooking and work space. Shopping, restaurants and recreation were all just steps away no matter what you felt like doing, if anything at all. This is the place to do it from. I really like the keyless entry so when you go for those sunset and shelling strolls along the beach there were no keys to worry about keeping up with. My wife and granddaughter liked the pool, I loved being able to look over the balcony and literally watch the sun rise from the horizon beyond, then sit back and watch it disappear into the ocean in the evening. Karen was great to work with and I am sure would have responded promptly to any problems if we had any, but our stay was great with no problems or complaints whatsoever and I will only contact Karen and Don for our next trip to FMB which I am already looking forward to :). Thanks for the use of your condo it was a wondereful home away from home. Don't forget to use the trolley for most if not all of your transportation needs.

Review Submitted May 7, 2012 Date of Stay April 23, 2012 The view from this condo was absolutely breathtaking! The condo itself was also great. There was complete privacy on this 12th floor ocean front condo. The local area is very convenient too. There is a trolly that runs back and forth on the island every 20-30 minutes in both directions. You can actually stay here if you do not have a car. The trolly also goes a ways off the beach where you could get a local bus to go further distance. If you really want to sight see off the island you will need a rental car, but if you are just looking for a quiet and beautiful get away then no car is necessary. The trolly takes you to the grocery store, and the CVS pharmacy and many shops and restaurants are across the street. The pool is wonderful and it is heated. If you prefer the beach then just a quick walk and you are there. There you can find jet skis and parasailing available. Whatever you want - it is nearby.I highly recommend this condo!!

Janet Leigh Michigan Submitted April 15, 2012 Date of Stay April 7, 2012 Best view we could ask for! Condo was clean and stocked with much needed items you will need for staying on the beach! Sun chairs, beach towels, cooler, etc. Karen made my travel arrangements very easy. Pictures do no justice for there condo! You wake up every morning to the dolphins, take a walk on the beach and find sand dollars! Just had and amazing experience..Cant wait to book again. Rating: 5 out of 5

Review Submitted April 11, 2012 Date of Stay March 31, 2012 My wife and I arrived 3/31/12 and the first impression upon turning into the complex is "Wow, the grounds are beautiful!" This is an ocean front facility and this condo is on the ocean side corner with unobstucted views of seven miles of beach, manacured lawns and wildlife area. Full sunsets right in front of you and if you look around the corner of your balcony you see the sun rise and great view of nice marina with beach shops and really good resturants just a few minutes walk from the condo. Everything you need is supplied. The king bed is really comfortable and the unit is clean and quiet. The pool area is very well maintained and everybody we met were friendly and helpful. We loved all our walks on the beach and felt the whole area was completely safe. I recommend this condo to anyone in need of a one bed place. Karen was most helpful and were so thankful we were able to stay here. We had an awsome time and would love to come back!

Review Submitted December 24, 2011 Date of Stay December 15, 2011 Excellent! Phenominal view of the ocean. Clean and comfortable accomodations. Quiet end of Estero Beach. Probably the most relaxing last minute vacation we have ever had. Everyone in the condo buildings were exceptionally friendly and Don and Karen were wonderful to work with. We actually had the opportunity to meet both of them as we were checking out! Thanks for the great time. We will return! We started out without a car (and you could make that work with the trolley that runs up and down the street), but found that with a car we were able to make some day trips to Marco (Tiger Tail Beach-eat at Snook's--it's great), and then to Sanibel Island. About 40 minutes south of Estero, Naples has TONS of eating and shopping-so the car was nice at that point. Highly recommend this quiet, tranquil and beautiful condo! Matt and Marie from Michigan.

Beautiful Condo and location Kenneth Jang Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada
Review Submitted October 2, 2011 Date of Stay September 24, 2011 We stayed for 1 week September 24-October 1, 2011 and had one of the best vacations. The condo is exactly as it was described, clean, comfortable, beautifully decorated and has everything we needed for a relaxing stay. The ocean view from the balcony was fantastic: miles of beach and the lagoon . There were all kinds of shore birds in the lagoon, Ibis, Herons, Spoonbills, and an osprey stayed on the balcony railing for quite some time! Dolphins often swam along the ocean which we can see from the balcony. Sunset watching was fantastic from the balcony as well. Wifi was available downstairs and made it all the more convenient. The FMB area afforded many things to see and do; and the condo location is close to everything. Thanks to Karen and Don for the opportunity to stay at this wonderful place; we'll certainly be back.

We stayed in the condo for a week and easily could have stayed for 2 or 3. This was the most wonderfully relaxing week, we could not have asked for a better time. The view is incredible, the birds the dolphins and the beach; truly incredible. We enjoyed the quietness of the beach away from the hustle and bustle down near Times Square. We walked the beach and sat at the waters edge for hours on end. The condo was clean, neat and quiet. We sat on the Lanai and enjoyed both the sunrise and sunsets we had a view of both the gulf and the bay. We had everything we needed in the condo and what we didn't have Publix did. Thanks to Karen and Don for sharing their lovely condo! We look forward to coming back next July!

We had a wonderful time our first time to Ft.Myers beach, and enjoyed our stay at your condo, which we found to be very comfortable and accommodating. We are avid beach walkers and enjoyed morning and evening walks along the sandy beaches north and south of EBT, where we found lots of shells, sand dollars, and our first ever starfish ! We saw dolphins, stingrays, lots of birds and fish, especially enjoyed watching the birds catching the fish. Spectacular sunsets, from the beach or the 12th floor balcony. We really appreciated the furnished beach chairs and towels, but needed the umbrella, which we donated for the next visitors. We can't say much about the tennis courts, swimming pools, shopping centers, nightlife, or entertainment, because we don't know, what we do know is this place is truly a Beachcombers Delight !

Hello Karen,
We had a glorious time in Ft Myers and enjoyed your lovely accommodations! Please tell Don we located the bicycles and pedaled the distance to the north bridge each morning thereafter.
In all the fun and entertainment my daughter managed to leave her favorite bathing suit top at the condo. We believe it was on the hook on the back of the bathroom door. Did it turn up between guest reservations? If so, I would be happy to send the money to mail it to us. Please let me know if it has been located.
Again, thank you for your generosity and hospitality. Everything was as you said it would be and the locals were all very friendly. We enjoyed the trivia game on Thursday evening at the Holiday Inn. The dolphins joined us on our morning beach walk on one special occassion.
Best Regards,
Trish

Karen:
We had a great time! Florida gave us perfect weather: blue skies and low humidity. And like all your other previous guests, we think your condo's view is spectacular!
The condo was a good size for us and well supplied.
Thanks for renting to us. It's a place we will keep in mind for future trips. (My husband's brother owns a dive shop on Tamiami in Ft. Myers and lives with his family in Bonita Springs. Another brother lives in Pt. Charlotte.)

Karen,

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Your condo was great! Furniture very comfortable! Kitchen well stocked! Was a very relaxing vacation.Didn't see the noodles when we arrived so when we made our first grocery trip, we purchased a couple. Left them as our addition to your home. We would not hesitate to recommend your unit and should we find ourselves in Ft. Myers again we will sure to contact you.

This is our family's second stay at Estero Beach & Tennis Club and specifically this condo. It has a beautiful view and wonderful balcony to have morning coffee and evening sunsets. The pool and beach are both equally stunning. My daughter and her friend loved the wildlife, especially the osprey and pelicans that glide by. Restaurants and shopping are close, and if you are adventurous, the trolley will take you down to the Times Square area and many more places to visit. The condo is just as beautiful as your pictures, and my daughter was amazed that every time she wondered if there was, say beach towels, noodles, chairs...you had it. So everything is there, you just have to come and enjoy. We are already making plans for next year!!

Perfect view of the Gulf!

Date of Stay: May 18, 2010 Review Submitted: June 8, 2010

I was a little worried that this property wouldn't have a "picture perfect" view of the Gulf of Mexico. I was so HAPPY when I walked in the door. It's a stunning view of Fort Myers Beach, the Gulf and the sun setting over distant islands. The lanai also delivered a view of the back bay. Truly perfect. The 12th floor was fun! The only floor higher is the penthouse -- but the penthouse condos are exactly the same as all the others. Don't pay for a penthouse when you can have the 12th floor at a less expensive rate. This condo truly is TOPS! The owners have upgraded the bed, the couch, the furniture on the lanai, and even the stove/oven was brand new -- it was coming in the door at the same time I was! Can't get any better than that! Oh...and the bathroom is also upgraded. Very nice. My friend and I left beach chairs, an umbrella and umbrella anchor for future guests. You'll appreciate it. It was our own little "upgrade" to the condo for you to enjoy. Okay -- the guest books raved on and on about the "amazingly wonderful clock." It's pretty cool, I have to agree, but it doesn't come CLOSE to the view and convenience of this condo. Santini Plaza is right across the street (dining, shopping, a bank and even a marina where you can rent a pontoon boat -- right out your back door) and the beach is not crowded...beautiful...quiet...dreamlike. I'm a big "lanai girl." From there I could see dolphins, sunsets, spoonbills (and countless other birds), palm trees, distant parasailers and I could even hear the water carress the white sands of the beach. On the 12th floor! I thought that was pretty cool. This is the right place at the right price. Just book it...you'll love it!

The condo location was well within walking distance for shopping, eating and other entertainment activities. We had the opportunity to meet other couples that rented and some that reside in the Estero Beach and Tennis Club that were very friendly and shared kind and helpful experiences. I must honestly say the ocean view from your condo was just breath taking. We look forward to our next vacation and would highly recommend your condo to anyone looking for an enjoyable stay at Fort Myers Beach.



Sincerely,
Carmen & Tony

Hi Karen:

We were delighted with our rental experience last March. We are interested in the two week period noted above.

Please let us know if this is OK.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Regards,

Matt & Susie Dowling

Dear Karen and Don
Just a quick thank you following our week in your condo at the Estero Beach and Tennis Club. The place was great and, no doubt thanks to Angela, spotlessly clean and welcoming.
Our arrival coincided with what was described locally as a 'cold snap'. To us in the north of the UK, and no doubt even more so in Minnesota, this was a strange description since the temperature was in the 70s each day! The bonus for the relatively cool mornings was the clarity of the air which made the condo views even more spectacular than ever.
The variety and proliferation of the wild life - especially in the slough - was an added bonus somewhat undersold in your description of the property. By chance I happened to have my binoculars with me which was extremely fortuitous and I would recommend either a pair is kept in the condo or you advise clients that they might find them useful - watching the dolphins in the shallows was wonderful.
I noted the rain pouring down on the Tamps Bay Buccannears last night and that the shuttle was diverted to California because of poor weather in Florda but we certainly would consider another trip there next November so we hope to be in touch!
Kind regards
Gordon and Barbara Wealleans

Hi Karen,

We returned home this past Monday from our 6/15-6/22 stay at your Ft. Myers Beach condo. We had a WONDERFUL time, and really enjoyed the condo. Thank you so much! We would love to do this again in the future.

Thanks again!

Just want to thank you for the rental of your condo 1101C Estero Beach in Fort Myers. We had a wonderful 10 days and really appreciate being able to rent for more than the one week. My husband played in the Roy Hobbs World Series and even though we had to drive into Fort Myers for the games it was well worth it to return to the beach each night.

We enjoyed the sandsculptures while we were there as well as beautiful sunsets and even found the beach one day at low tide full of sand dollars. The weather was warm and sunny and being in the condo made the time away from home easier - we ate most of our meals there.

We hope to return in the future for the baseball tournament and will be sure to contact you as to the availability of your properties.

Thanks again!!!

Karen - I returned to Indiana last night after spending the past 12 days in Ft. Myers . The stay at EBT 1207 A was everything I hoped for...relaxing, beautiful weather ( except for a bad storm last Sunday that made shelling on Monday FANTASTIC), incredible sunsets and oh, those birds ! I came home with tons of sand dollars, a beautiful tan and lots of quality time with my son at some of the bars in town!

A great week! 1101C------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -----------------------

Hi Karen,
I've had a really busy week coming back from vacation, otherwise I would have emailed sooner.
I just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time at your condo!! We had perfect weather all week, and we really enjoyed both the sunsets and sunrises. We had breakfast on the balcony everyday and saw the spoonbills several times, even dolphins one day. We may want to book your condo again sometime in the future. I would love to next year, but we probably will be going to Germany then. So we don't know yet what our plans are. Can I stay in touch?
Ute

Karen : I am a little late in doing this, but I wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay in your condo. Yours is by far the nicest one we have stayed in at that complex. The view is absolutely fantastic. The weather was very good in January. I thnk we left all in good condition. I did donate a new coffee maker as the one there stopped working. It is black and silver and looked very nice with your kitchen.
We are hoping to be able to come back to Ft. Myers Beach again next Jan. We are never sure until around August what will be happening. If we do return I will call you first to see about availability.
Have a great summer - Regards
Linda & Rick Evans

Hi Karen and Don

We are home from paradise and wishing we were back there. Your condo was wonderful. Everything you could want was there. It was bright and clean and the view was absolutely perfect.

We look forward to next year. Has the week of March 18 to 25 of next year been reserved? If not, we would like to extend our stay to three weeks instead of two. If it isn't available for next year, keep us in mind for three weeks in 2007. We always go the first three full weeks in March.

We talked friends from Wisconsin into renting a condo at EBT this year. They were in a PH in A bldg. The condo was very dirty. The tub drain was clogged with hair and scum. The VCR did not work. The microwave was an antique. They were not happy with the condo but they liked the EBT over-all. They are coming back next year, but to a different condo. We really felt bad for them because we have had such great luck with our choices of condos.

I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed your place and can't wait to get back there. By the way, the internet connection worked great. Thanks again.

Judy and Fuzz Reme
