Absolutely perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

Being in this condo is being home! It's wonderful from top to bottom. The owner has gone to great lengths to make this unit outstanding! The beds are very comfortable, the furniture is all you need, the kitchen is stocked with everything you need to prepare all your meals, and with outstanding views, I could cook all day long! You can't forget you are at the beach with the amazing views from every room, the beach from the front and the bay from the back. The bathrooms are beautiful and completely stocked with fluffy towels! And having a washer and dryer tops it off!!! We have already reserved this unit for our 5th year next year, and I look forward to being there all year long!

Lovely condo, great views of water

  • 4 of 5

Condo was very nice. Well appointed, plenty of towels, full size washer and dryer. Kitchen had anything needed. Beds in MB were comfortable. Lanai furniture was older and not sturdy, twin beds not comfortable, queen beds in master bedroom blocked getting into closet where washer and dryer is and lanai off MB. Beds were too large for the space . No ceiling fans! But two other fans were available . Rental Rates reasonable ! Liked renting from individual instead of from rental agency. Would definitely recommend to others! May see if vacancy exists for next year same time.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed the beautiful views. I would like to address a few of your concerns. Regarding the lanai furniture, the two new wicker chaise lounges were purchased this year at Fortunoff's and were quite expensive. The patio set is rust proof metal and appeared to be quite sturdy when I was there in October, will be residing there for the month of January and will definitely check it out. Twin bed mattresses are new; mattress firmness/softness is such a person preference, maybe they just weren't the comfortable for you, just didn't suit your back, which is understandable. I haven't had any other complaints regarding the bedding. As a matter of fact, most people comment on how comfortable the bedding is. Regarding the two beds in the master, it has been such a bonus for people travelling with their children and another couple, such as aunts and grandparents. I allows for 6 people to sleep comfortably in the unit without having to open the sleeper sofa. Hope this response addressed your concerns. Customer service is my top priority! Margie

Wonderful unit and great location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were extremely pleased with this condo. The location is perfect and the views from the two balconies are wonderful. The accommodations and amenities were everything we needed for a perfect stay. The unit was spacious, clean and in great condition. In our previous stays at FMB, we were on the south end. We found this location more convenient since it is just a short walk to the restaurants, shops and activities at Times Square. The condo has convenient parking that is secure and gated. No long walks to the unit. Beach access is easy and the property owner provides everything you need for a relaxing day on the sand - chairs, cooler, umbrellas, etc. It is also a short walk north on the beach to Bowditch Point Park or south to Times Square.

The move to this north end condo was certainly an upgrade in both location and quality. The property owner was wonderful to work with and we had no issues with the booking or rental process. We certainly plan to re-book this property for our next trip.

Fabulous condo in Fort Myers Beach!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very lovely. Decorated very nice and the kitchen and bathrooms are updated beautifully! The view from the corner end unit is fabulous. The condo had everything we needed to make our stay very enjoyable. We had trouble with the internet but I'm sure the owner fixed the issue. I would recommend this condo!

Relaxing get-away!

  • 5 of 5

Margie was extremely helpful and friendly! Her condo was spotless and nicely decorated. The master bathroom as well as the entire condo was upscale and very comfortable! We appreciated the beach chairs too! We always love the north end of the beach and plan to return to Margie's condo whenever we can!! Thanks for sharing your charming beach condo with us, Margie!! Dan & Brenda.

Owner's Response: Brenda, thanks so much for the compliments regarding the condo. I strive to give tenants the high end luxury that they are paying for; vacations are expensive, renters deserve a high quality, spotless unit. That is what I try to deliver. I can't control the weather, but I can control your surroundings! Thanks and look forward to renting to you again. Margie
