“Wonderful beach condo”

Reviewed 7 Nov 2016

Everything about the rental unit was as stated. The location is perfect because it is very hard to park with Times Square only a short walk away. One small problem is that the air conditioning either has to be on or off, there seems to be no way to regulate the temperature. The gulf is right across the street and it's beautiful with the white sand. We love it here.

“Great vacation spot”

Reviewed 20 Nov 2015

This place had just about everything needed for a vacation. The location was perfect, right across from the beach. The one bedroom was adequately equipped and well-suited for one person or a couple. The building was quiet even though it was only a few blocks from the main party area of Fort Myers Beach. The unit was clean and well-kept and there is a super on site. The price was quite affordable as well. All-in-all it was a pleasant experience and I would recommend it to anyone.

Owner's reply: I am so glad you enjoyed your two plus weeks at our condo. Please come back any time and thanks for your kind words. And yes the "super" on site Tom is quite super himself.

“Awesome vacation!”

Reviewed 22 Jun 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!!

Owner's reply: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and thanks so much for the great review. Please come again, Heath

“Paradise found is right!”

Reviewed 1 May 2015

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!

Owner's reply: WOW, I am so happy that you enjoyed your time. I will let Tom know what you posted as he try's real hard to please

“Fort Myers beach Condo.”

Reviewed 22 Dec 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. .

Owner's reply: Thanks and am glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope to have you come back

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!

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 😎

My daughter and I LOVE this place!! I really can't say enough good things about RipTide Condos...the Owners...and Tom, the on-site manager!!! Already looking to book next year's trip!!! :)

“Paradise indeed!”

Jill and Peter were wonderful. The place was amazing. If we needed anything Jill and Peter were just a phone call away and happy to help anytime. Clean, comfortable, and very affordable. We hope to visit again very soon!! Thanks for making our visit amazing!

“Can't wait to go back!”

Reviewed 22 Jun 2014

My daughter and I were looking for the perfect "mother-daughter" vacation and we couldn't have found a more perfect place. The condo, the beach, the food and restaurants and the perfect relaxation and fun. We plan to come every year and bring the rest of the family. Don't change a thing!!

Owner's reply: Wow such kind words. I am glad you enjoyed your time and it yours the next time you come down. Heath
