Description from owner

Welcome to Our Vacation DREAM Home! TOTALLY REMODELED

We would like to invite you to stay at our dream home!!! Ron and I are offering 2 week minimal stays at extremely fair rental rates but do ask that you treat our home like your own assuming that you love your home. Our transformation continues and you will be pleased!!

Beautiful views can be seen from our clean and totally updated Direct Gulf Front condo that has approximately 1200 sq ft including the lanai. Our home has a true 'Gulf Front' location with direct beach access. A safe swimming beach is right in front of our building and is completely visible from our home. No stretching your neck or leaning over the balcony railing to see the Gulf. We are located on the ocean and NOT on the river.

Totally remodeled: Freshly painted, new crown moldings/trim, stainless appliances, custom hardwood cabinetry, Quartz counter tops throughout, gorgeous tiled bathrooms, new window treatments, award winning fireplace, 6 panel doors, new high end mattresses with double sanitary protection, new TV’s, high speed internet and much more

Our Kitchen is open concept with custom hardwood cabinetry having a white base and Key West Blue accents, Cambria Quartz counter tops (Cambria is nonporous and nonabsorbent), marbled stone backsplash, and full size stainless appliances including a French door refrigerator, crown molding tray ceiling, double sink, Moen designer faucet, new Front Load washer/dryer and dynamic RGB special lighting. The Quartz island counter extends for extra seating. Need to take care of business while cooking, no problem since there is a separate office right off the kitchen.

Our Master Bedroom is spacious and bright with a spectacular view of the Gulf of Mexico. We have a new Paula Deen Home Collection King Bedroom set, all new high end mattresses with double protection sanitation coverings, new designer bed linens, new mounted LCD flat screen TV, ceiling fan, new high impact sliding door leading to lanai, iPod (iHome) docking station, new crown molding and new highly recommended cool gel mattress topper.

Our Master Dressing area leads to 2 closets as well as the master bathroom. One closet has new floor to ceiling mirrored doors while the other closet is a walk-in. The bathroom contains a combination shower/bathtub area with an oversized soaking Kohler tub, fantastic Moen ‘RAIN SHOWER’ and new comfort height toilet. Bathroom counter top is quartz with Moen brushed nickel fountain faucet and plenty of extra storage.

Our guest room has new mattresses with double protection sanitation coverings, new designer bed linens, new LCD flat screen TV, ceiling fan, new pictures and new crown molding.

The guest bathroom has porcelain tile with a beautiful new walk-in shower with a Moen ‘RAIN SHOWER’. Mirror custom made to match the Quartz counter top, comfort height toilet and brushed nickel faucet/accessories.

Our unit is elevated twelve feet above the sand and feels like a traditional beach house because there is only one flight of stairs from the beach to the unit. No need to take the elevator. You can walk along seven miles of silky sand beach loaded with shells and sand dollars which are just outside the windows and lanai. Mother Nature drops off another batch of seashells each morning, and in the evening, inspiring sunsets color the sky like a modern masterpiece of art. The natural light and the sound of waves fill every corner of the unit. Yes, the sound of the surf heard in the unit will magically lull you to sleep. Beautiful landscaping surrounds the building which is graced with a large geo-thermal heated pool with waterfall, spa, clubhouse and gorgeous tropical pond.

The adjacent clubhouse offers such things as indoor seating, kitchenette and the opportunity to meet the nicest people while barbecuing dinner on the provided gas grills.

Our condo sleeps 4. Occupancy limit is 1 to 4 people. Please note: a child, any age, is counted as a person

Sorry but we do not allow pets or smoking inside our condo.

“You won't find a better view anywhere”

Reviewed 6 Jan 2017

My husband and two boys 7 and 9 spent our 2 week xmas break at the Riviera. The location is really nice, because it's at the south end of the island away from seasonal traffic and crowded beaches. It's a much nicer clientele at that end too. Publix is a three minute drive and there are several restaurants you can walk to. The building has direct access to the beach, meaning there is no long marsh you need to walk around to get to the water, like a lot of the developments on the beach have to do. It's a straight 30 second walk to the water. It's brilliant. When you have kids that need to go to the bathroom, or chairs to carry it's a breeze. There are keys to get into the pool and out to the beach. So there were never any people there that shouldn't be walking through or using the pool. The pool is really warm, which was important to us, because the gulf is chilly in December. It was at least 85 and was lovey. Plenty of chairs for all, half in the sun and half in shade. They also have a hot tub that is really nice. I had to keep dragging my boys out of it. Now to the condo. When we walked in, we were speechless at how beautiful the setting and view was. I really liked that it was on the second floor because it felt like we were in a beachouse on stilts. We had a stunning view of the water, but could still see the palm trees which were so calming to listen too. I feel like if we were up high, we would have just had a view of water. There's a grassy area around the back the of the building. My boys would play catch there while I made dinner, then I'd just call them in from the lanai. The kitchen has everything you need. I cooked lunch and dinner most days easily. The appliances are all new, as are the lovely quartz countertops. The bedrooms are very comfortable. The master has a big king bed with a foam mattress top that was incredibly comfortable. There are three flat screen tv's which is nice, because we all needed to have our own space at certain times. The kids would watch their shows in their room. The sunset was our favorite time of the day. We would go for a walk on the beach around five, then watch the sun go down. Or we'd have a glass of wine on the lanai and watch it. There's a huge window in the master, so we'd wake up to the amazing view every morning and just stare at it. Dolphins slowly swam down the beach every morning we were there. It really was an exceptional holiday and one we hope to do again often. We were really sad to leave.

“Perfection”

Reviewed 10 Oct 2016

Stayed here for a week with my mother. Felt like home! Loved the light, the view, and the accommodations. Fully appointed kitchen. We both slept well. Quiet. Clean. And the best location on Ft Myers Beach! Loved dawn and dusk walks; the shelling is amazing. The place is full of Eagles, pelicans, water birds, dolphins and fish. Both the owner and the management company were helpful and accommodating. The price was right. Will come back again. Thanks to all!

“Fantastic! Every thing you could ask for.”

Great condo. The owner thought of anything and everything one would need for a memorable stay. All the details and a great location on the beach. As quiet as you need it to be and a short way to all the entertainment you want.

“Vacation in Paradise”

Reviewed 22 Apr 2016

The owners of this condo thought of everything !! The condo is in a great location facing the beautiful beach, we sat out and watched some beautiful sunsets from the lanai. The décor is so beautiful, tastefully done in pastels and beach colors. You can enjoy the beach for shelling in the mornings or have your coffee on the lanai. The wifi is great, big screen tv, blu ray, and cable channels galore. There is a lovely fireplace, a library of good books and much to do right in the condo area. The pool is a thermal pool, with Jacuzzi, barbecue gas grills for your grilling convenience, shuffleboard etc. You will never be bored.The condo is so clean, decorated with an interior decorators skill.Beautiful appliances, lots of storage space. The bedrooms are beautiful, Master bedroom has a King size bed with a door to the lanai, it is on the front of the condo, you will wake up to some beautiful ocean views !! Adjacent to the Master bedroom is a large dressing area and large soaking tub in the bathroom, very roomy. The second bedroom has twin beds, also it's own bathroom and is also beautifully decorated. The owner has thought of your every need, towels, linens etc are all of top quality. The beds are all very comfortable, excellent mattresses and pillows. Kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, glassware, and dinnerware, pots and pans and cooking utensils. As far as the location, it is a short walk to downtown or you can ride the local trolley to Times Square to shop. There is a Publix very close and so any good places to dine out. All in all we couldn't have asked for more, and have already decided to go back again this year and can hardly wait. These owners have thought of your every vacation need, definitely recommend this condo if you want beauty , location and above all an immaculate place to vacation.

Owner's reply: Thank you for the fantastic review and choosing our condo for your vacation. We are so thankful to have so many returning guests and so happy that you have already booked your return trip back to our (Dream) vacation condo. A very sincere thank you for everything!!!

“INCREDIBLE!”

Reviewed 12 Oct 2015

We knew we had found the perfect place the moment we stepped into this wonderful condo. Linda and Ron did a marvelous job decorating the property from floor to ceiling with high-end finishes and coastal design. Top of the line appliances and counter-tops made the kitchen one that you want to bring back as your own. Words cannot express the beauty of the views that you have from the lanai and the master bedroom. The condo was immaculately clean when we arrived and perfect for our small family. The other guests and owners were all friendly and accommodating. The condo was centrally located if you want to visit Ft. Myers attractions, Bonita Springs/Beach attractions, and Naples, as we often ventured during our trip. We listened to the crashing of the waves on the beach every single night! We cannot wait to get back and enjoy this gem of a condo! Thank you!

Owner's reply: Thank you both for the great review!!!! We are so happy that you appreciated our condo and took the time to write the review. THANK YOU!! Thank you so much also for the wonderful picture that you took of the sunrise from our lanai. The picture was incredible and thanks for sharing. That meant so much to me. Ron and Linda

“Above Expectations”

Reviewed 31 May 2015

A special thanks to Ron and Linda for allowing us to stay in their condo. They are an exceptionally nice couple and so easy to work with. Their condo is beautiful and allowed us to have a wonderful vacation. The condo upgrades are excellent quality and made our stay very comfortable. Linda has done a great job decorating and furnishing the condo. We enjoyed the ocean view from the living room and lanai along with the quiet atmosphere at this end of the beach. The Riviera Club development is beautifully landscaped and very well kept. The pool is large with plenty of lounge chairs and a very nice clubhouse with restroom access. Thanks to the property manager Mike for printing our boarding passes. Again Linda and Ron, thank you for your cordial hospitality and we look forward to staying in your condo in the future.

“It Was Wonderful”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2014

Linda and Ron have personally involved themselves in to providing the best rental condo in Ft. Myers Beach. Personal touches I have never seen provided by rental condos- from comfort, to kitchen supplies, to beach chairs and umbrellas. The location is great- close to stores and the best restaurants, as well as on the beach for beautiful tranquil beach views and walks. A guest couldn't ask for more.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much!!! We do try very hard and actually have more additions that will be added to our condo home coming in 2014 and 2015. Thank you, Thank you and Thank you again for such a nice review. Ron and I are so fortunate to have such great guests. Ron and Linda

“Amazing!!!”

Reviewed 24 Jul 2014

The condo was extremely clean, beautifully furnished and had breathtaking view from the lanai. The owners even had fantastic beach chairs that came in handy ever single day! We loved being able to be on the beach in a couple of minutes and the luxury of going in for lunch or a break from the sun and then back out for another walk or to watch the sun set. We really enjoyed the peacefulness of the south end of Fort Myers Beach. We discovered that our location actually had the best sea shelling in the entire area. We had so much fun and will definitely be returning. Thank you for providing us with such a wonderful place to stay...it made our vacation outstanding!

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for the nice review Viki!!!! I so appreciate that you took the time from your busy schedule to do such a nice thing for us. THANK YOU!!!! Ron and Linda

January 28, 2012 - This is xxxxx and xx, this condo is awesome. My only fear each time we vacation is that wherever we stay it will be clean. You have done a wonderful job. Very clean and beautifully done. Thank you so very much.

January 14, 2012 - We enjoyed our stay. We got your condo in perfect shape and left everything in perfect shape. Place is excellent, location is good and the view is Unbelievable. We would like to return next year Thanks again,

December 3, 2011 - The condo was wonderful, large, fully equipped and had a fantastic view. I truly felt at home the moment I first walked into the unit. I'm especially impressed with the new owners stating that they have a checklist to routinely have all furniture and mattresses cleaned and sanitized. I really do appreciate that. Also, the washer and dryer right in the unit was a lifesaver. The location was perfect since we did come to Ft Myers Beach to have fun and also relax. The quite pristine beach directly in front of the condo was perfect for relaxing yet a short walk away is a major hotel that provided alternative entertainment. Everything was perfect, even the weather. We are looking forward to another stay in this unit next year.

October 31, 2012
It is a fantastic condo!! We spent a wonderful time and we say thank you very much.
We enjoyed the beach and in the afternoon the sunset.
The weather was very beautiful and so we went on trips several times, like Sanibel Island and Edison & Ford Winter Estates.
So we think we'll come back in the next years!!! Grisela and Norbert

Lovely condo and such a lovely surprise to find that all we needed to buy the first day was fresh milk - as everything else was here.
Great place for early morning runs on the beach and then watching the sunset at the end of the day.

If I could give this condo 6 stars I would. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to stay in your condo for the last 2 weeks. Your kitchen is just beautiful and the sunsets from the lanai were magical. We loved cooking on the outside grill in the evening and rushing back to have dinner on the lanai to have dinner. The setting was so romantic even though we are senior citizens. Parka and Maggie
