Warm, welcoming, family-friendly condo in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over our Spring Break this year and especially appreciated the hospitality that not only the condo owners showed us but also the office staff that were so happy to lend us the tennis rackets and basketball for the complimentary courts and encouraged us to try out shuffleboard, too! While using other great amenities, such as one of the 4 large gas grills and the pool and hot tub, we met several condo owners and even a board member, all of whom were genuinely interested in making sure we were having a good time. It was truly a warmer atmosphere than you could find in a hotel. We traveled with 4 of our kids, ages 13-17 and appreciated all of the great beach accessories that were in the condo for our use, such as the 2 beach chairs, 2 additional portable chairs, boogie boards, smashball, and the small soft sided cooler. The owners were extremely responsive to our questions prior to our stay and were very easy to work with. Like other reviewers said, great south end location, great beach, close to restaurants, stores, etc. We are huge foodies and love to both cook on our vacations and try the local fare. The condo was fully equipped for the big meals we prepared when we stayed in. And when we dined out, the condo location could not have been better to get to all the great spots. We have been to FMB a couple times and still haven't hit all the spots we want to get to. We love Mom's for breakfast and their great fresh-squeezed juice, happy hour at The Outrigger, a casual lunch at Petey's upper deck at Mantanza's and a fine dining dinner at Charlie's Boathouse. Coconut Jack's in Bonita with their all-valet parking is a great spot for dinner, too. But there are so many more! And when we come back to FMB to try them all we will definitely book this condo again! Thanks, Craig and Donna!

Wonderful As Always

  • 5 of 5

My mom has been coming to this condo for years and every year she has loved it. The condo has undergone great upgrades over the years and it is always fun to see what the owners have done. The condo is on the south end and a short walk to four plus restaurants and shopping. Being at the south end is great because you avoid all of the rowdy traffic and construction. The pool has undergone renovation and they are doing all types of sprucing up all over the property. It is just a great place to go and unwind.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. The pool area will be completely rebuilt in 2017 with a Waterfall and new pool deck.

Home away from Home on Fort Myers Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week on FMB in this beautiful condo. We have stayed in a number of places over the years and this one was one of the best. The condo is beautiful and was stocked with everything we needed to make us comfortable and feel right at home. The decor is gorgeous and view from the balcony is great. This condo is located at the (quiet) south end of the island which we quickly came to appreciate! But it is a short drive to lots of restaurants/shops/action so it truly is the best of both worlds! The beach is a short walk away and was never too crowded. There is so much to do as you are between Fort Myers and Naples. We spent a day fishing with Pure Naples and took a Segway tour in Naples as well...would highly recommend both. On the island, you have to eat at Heavenly Biscuit and Leine Burgers-both excellent!

Thanks to Donna for sharing her beautiful home with us!

Wonderful updated condo, at a fabulous location.

  • 5 of 5

After being there for just a short time we began to call it "heaven"! The spacious two bedroom unit is completely updated and felt like home; well maybe better than home. The unit was so spacious we even had six of us for one night, comfortably. You cannot beat the location, right on one of the nicest beaches we've ever experienced. We would stay there again in a heartbeat. Very classy, yet still felt like home. Tastefully decorated, comfortable beds, and great company made for one our best vacations ever!
