Why Jack Migliore chose South Island
We live in Estero, Fl. & love Fort Myers Beach Estero Beach & Tennis Club is just right for us. We know that you will love it also
What makes this Condo unique
Entrance Drive to Estero Beach & Tennis Club Our condo is located at Estero Beach and Tennis Club (EB&T). EB&T is located on the largest property on the island. There are 11 acres of nicely landscaped property for you to explore and enjoy. This includes a lake (with fountain) right next to the palm-tree lined drive as you first pull into the property. Lots of parking (free for our guests) is available, and the EB&T condominiums are located in three buildings. The pool is heated to a wonderful 85° for those cooler winter months and is open until dusk (No after dark swimming!). EB&T is a quiet, friendly community. It is not a party palace. There are various places up near Times Square on the north end of the island that will work out much better for you if you are looking for a place to party. If you try that at EB&T, you will attract the attention of your neighbors, who will call the management/caretaker, and you will be "asked" to leave, with no refund of the money that you have paid (we've never had this happen, and certainly hope that we never will) The Beach is just out the door, The People are very Friendly, With Shopping, Restaurants Just across the street a Car Is not necessary
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
The condo was perfect for my husband and me. Jack and Connie have done a great job stocking the condo with everything needed for a comfortable stay. From the kitchen, linens, and supplies for the beach we had everything we needed for a wonderful week. The condo has easy access to a beautiful quiet beach area. There are restaurants with in walking distance, although we chose to go places that I remembered from when I lived in Fort Myers. It was an easy drive to every place we wanted to go. The keyless entries are awesome - no need to worry about keys!
The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars were the hallways to the condo. They need some updating, but nothing that would cause me to not come back.
Thank you Jack and Connie, we will definitely remember your place the next time we are in the area!
We loved staying here. Everything was perfectly described and you can’t beat the location. Close to everything but just enough away from the crowds. The grounds are just beautiful. Saw more different kinds of birds here than we did at the 2 nature parks we went to. Owners were a pleasure to deal with. The condo had everything we needed including a welcome basket from the owners. Would love to stay here again.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this great review of our condo.
Connie and I are happy you enjoyed your stay, and we would love to have back
Always a great time
Jack and Connie’s condo was perfect! Everything was so clean and we had everything we needed for a perfect week. The location couldn’t be better the beach is right behind you and several great restaurants right across the street. We will definitely be back again!
Thank you so much for your review and you guys were great guest
And will always be welcome back

Enjoyed Fort Myers Beach
The private beach was absolutely amazing in addition to the beach chairs, umbrella and cooler. The beach walks were superb since we could walk forever. The pool was wonderful, warm and inviting. The plaza across the street had great restaurants to select from - we ate at the Sandbar & Grille twice and Fish Tales once - and CastAway's Bar & Grill had a different band with great dance music every night. Additionally, a CVS was within a block so that was perfect, however. I read many reviews about the about the cleanliness of the condo but I am very particular about clean sheets, clean towels and unmarred walls therefore my opinion (which I understand varies from person to person) was a bit different. I ended up purchasing alternative sheets to sleep on and purchased beach towels to use as well. Additionally, the "ocean-view" was slightly obstructed but still offered amazing sunsets (if I leaned around the railing to see it). And one of the elevators in our building was broken most of the week which caused some delays during our stay. Regardless, we always enjoy our vacation and try to make the very best of it and of course I cannot say enough about that amazing beach.
Thank you for your review,
We are happy you have enjoyed Fort Myers Beach so much
I do appreciate your comments but one phone call would have taken care of all.
I was waiting till after season to paint the condo. And to replace the sheets and towels that I will now before my next rental. We would love to have you back again and I would be happy to buy you guys dinner at South Beach to apologize. Thank you
Connie and Jack
Comfy and Cozy
We enjoyed our time in Fort Myers Beach and our stay in the condo was lovely. Thank you, Jack and Connie, for the new chairs on the balcony! They are perfect! We appreciated the good communication with Jack and Connie and felt at home in their condo. We would certainly rent from them again!
Thank you so much you guys were great
Guests and will always be welcome back
Communication is great in any relationship
Dealing with others.

Across the street at the Fish Tale Marina
You can rent a pontoon or hulled boat, or charter bayside and ocean fishing trips.
For tamer tastes, we recommend a sunset and sightseeing cruise with Good Time Charters. Their large pontoon boat leaves the pier in front of the Fish House Restaurant. Call 437-8773 for departure times
South Beach is one of our favorite restaurants at Santini's Marina Plaza for somewhat upscale dining. It has a fabulous bar that gets busy around sundown. Their early-bird specials are a bargain.
For lunch we like grouper sandwiches at the Fish House Restaurant, located dockside behind the shopping plaza. The fries are uncommonly good. Informal and friendly. Egrets sometimes pace the deck rail, hoping for handouts.
In the middle of the plaza, try Francesco's Italian Deli and Pizzeria. You can buy hot or 'heat & eat' meals and bring them back to your condo. They also deliver (call 463-5634).
The Sandbar and Grille opened in 2006 at the south end of the shopping plaza. We found their entrees tasty and moderately priced. Their pizzas are popular. TV monitors are everywhere, including in the booths (although you can turn yours off), broadcasting cable sports.
Also at the south end of the plaza, Loggerheads is a good bet for casual dining. A couple from New Jersey took over as new owners in 2008, and have developed new menu ideas. They are keeping spaghetti on the menu, a long-time favorite of locals.
A great place for breakfast is the Island Pancake House, located near the library about mid-island. Generous servings, good prices. We get rave reviews about this place from our guests.
Another favorite of ours is the Parrot Key Caribbean Grill. Pier-side dining, with a creative menu and drink list. Lunch, dinner, or Sunday breakfast. They don't take reservations, but you might want to call about their menu (463-3257). To get there cross back over the main bridge, turn right on Main Street (just on the other side) and go a few blocks until you see their big sign. You'll see other restaurants on the way, all featuring fresh-off-the-boat seafood
The location of the nearest ATM machine: across the street at the bank.
