About the property

Condo, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sleeps

Looking for a vacation spot that has it all? You have found it right here!! This condo is located directly on the Gulf of Mexico on beautiful Fort Meyers Beach. The condo is in the Estero Beach and Tennis Club complex on the south end of the island, otherwise known as the quiet end. Fort Myers Beach was voted one of the top 10 safest beaches in the world on Travel Channel. It is a white sand beach and a beachcombers delight if you looking for seashells. The complex also includes a heated pool, the best tennis courts on the island, shuffle board and BBQ grills that are all for your use as our guest. There is parking on the complex.

Across the street is the Santini Plaza and marina. There are shops and restaurants across the street and with the marina right there you have access to sightseeing tours and fishing trips within walking distance. Also within walking distance is a golf course. In the middle of the island you can rent mopeds and bikes. A short walk down the beach will bring you to parasailing and Jet Ski rentals. Take the trolley for only 50 cents and ride down to the north end of the island and go out on the pier and enjoy Times Square. After spending the day on the very busy end of the island, take the trolley back to you peaceful and quiet getaway.

The condo is set up for families with children of all ages with books, movies, games, sand toys and noodles for the pool. There is a king bed and queen size sofa sleeper with an accordion door that can be pulled shut to make this 2 bedrooms. It is also perfect for that romantic holiday as it is very quiet and relaxing and the private balcony is also perfect for a glass of wine while watching the sunset. We even had a wedding proposal take place on the balcony this year and guests who got married on the beach! It is also a perfect honeymoon location!!

The condo is beautifully decorated and we keep everything updated for your enjoyment. The kitchen is completely furnished with stove/oven, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator, utensils, dishes, pots/pans, blender, toaster, etc. Linens are provided. There is a hair dryer, iron and ironing board.

We have a new queen size pull out sleeper and recliner in the living area.

You never have to worry about boredom! There is parasailing, fishing, jet skiing, dolphin tours, sightseeing tours, day trips to the Keys, casino boats, lots of shopping and golf across the street. Tennis is available right on the grounds along with shuffleboard and grills to have a picnic outside. The pool is heated so it feels like bath water. Bikes and mopeds can be rented right on the island or take a trolley ride to the north end of the island to the pier and Times Square. Plus the beach is right outside your door!

About Cory Bladorn

We live in Janesville, Wisconsin. My husband is a farmer and I work at home for the local hospital doing medical transcription. We have 2 children, our son who is currently at home with us and our daughter who will graduate this spring from UW-Milwaukee. We bought this property for our family vacation getaway and also someday as a retirement property (needed a place to escape the snow)!

Cory Bladorn purchased this condo in 2004

Why Cory Bladorn chose Fort Myers Beach

We traveled all over Florida with our children and fell in love with Fort Myers Beach. It is family friendly and you feel very safe at all times. The beach is very safe and even voted one of the top 10 safest beaches on the Travel Channel. We found renting a condo so much nicer than getting a hotel as you have all the conveniences of home. It is great for families as you can prepare meals in or you can choose to go out, you have snacks handy at all times, there is room for everyone to spread out, and just a great a great way to unpack and enjoy your vacation. The views are perfect and we absolutely love it! It is a great place to go fishing, collect seashells, watch the dolphins, and just relax. So nice and quiet and relaxing!

What makes this condo unique

We try to add amenities for everyone of all ages as it just makes it feel like home. We have books, movies and games for all ages. We keep sand toys and noodles for the pool as this makes it great for kids and handy for parents. The kitchen and bathroom are completely stocked with everything you need. There are beach towels, cooler, beach chairs and beach umbrella for your use. High-speed Internet directly into the condo.

Wonderful Beach Condo

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed our stay at this condo. The condo itself as well as the grounds were both very clean and well maintained. The condo had everything we needed for the beach and for cooking. It was really a blessing to not have to bring all our chairs and other beach stuff with us on the trip. Our favorite part of the condo was the view. Wow. I literally could have sat out there all day and night. The view, the smell, the breeze, everything was awesome. The beach was small but more than enough to have a great time. There are tons of shells to collect and we must have brought home probably 2 grocery bags full. All in all, it was a great stay, and we didn't really want to leave.

Awesome Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

For starters, you're right on a gulf beach! We looked right past a palm tree to the white sand, beautiful water, and amazing pink sunsets. The unit was VERY clean and well-appointed. We were in need of nothing. After playing hard all day, it was awesome to fall asleep in the king-sized bed. The bathroom was very large...lots of towels...plenty of room to move around and get ready for the day. While the pictures on the site make this unit look on the small side, we were really surprised by its roominess. There is a divider to separate the bedroom from living area when needed, and we never heard our neighbors once. Very quiet. We enjoyed the balcony for breakfast and in the evening to wind down. Thank you so much for a great vacation stay!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at this condo. The owners are easy to work. I appreciated that their cleaning lady was on-sight (which turned out to be helpful as there was a minor repair needed which was taken care of seamlessly). The condo is nicely equipped with many upgrades; beautiful balcony view. I love natural preserve area it is in. This is the nicest area on Fort Myers Beach. Will return again.
