Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, 6 Sleeps

Ft. Myers Beach received very minor damage from Irma. The electric is back on and it won't take long to re-screen the lanai and fix a few fences. The airport will be open starting tomorrow and we have plenty of gas. October and November are beautiful times to be down on the beach so there is no reason to cancel your fall vacation plans. Check my calendar for availability and contact me.

Beautiful romantic Cornerstone Beach Resort two bedroom condo on Ft. Myers Beach. We are not set up with homeaway payments or bookings online. I feel our reservation process is just as safe and quick with the "brick and mortar" office I have been using for 13 years. The office is open 7 days a week and a late check in is not a problem. You can call me for more information. There no extra fees, no cleaning fee, no booking fee, no parking fee, no junk fees. The rate posted is the rate without any add on's except for the Florida tourist tax.

We have everything you could possibility want for a relaxing and enjoyable trip. The building only has 8 one bedroom and 4 two bedroom condo's so the pool and beach area is never over crowded. The heated pool is just steps from the beach. The screened lanai is a perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee and watch the dolphin swim by or have cocktails at night and watch the sunset. We also have a patio table on the lanai so you can enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner. There isn't a more romantic spot for dinner on the entire island! We love grilling steaks on the gas BBQ (or picking up carry-out) and having dinner there ourselves.

If you must bring your laptop use our wireless Internet connection and turn the lanai into your office with a view! We also have a washer/dryer right in

the unit so you don't have to pack that extra suitcase!

There is a king size bed in the master, twin beds in the guest room and a queen size sofa sleeper in the living. Three flat screen TV's with HDTV, full kitchen, washer/dryer, WiFi and lots of other amenities. The bathroom was just remodeled (9/17) with granite counter top and walk in tiled shower. This is not a motel room, this is an actual apartment and you and your family will feel right at home from the moment you walk in.

We have a management company located 1/2 mile north of Cornerstone that handles credit cards and keys for us. They are open 7 days a week and I feel it is much better then booking on line. They are there just in case there are any issues that need to be taken care of while you are on vacation. It is peace of mind for me and should be for you too. There are no surprise fees either. The rate is the rate with no resort fee, no booking fee, no cleaning fee, no damage fee, no junk fees!

I am very familiar with the area and happy to answer any questions. You can't call me because they took my phone number off of the ad but I will reply to your email quickly with more information.

Cornerstone is located in the quiet mid-island area about 3 miles south of Times Square and 1/2 mile south of Publix grocery store.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just want to thank you again for a GREAT week in Fort Myers Beach. It may sound silly, but one of my favorite things was the bed in the master bedroom! When you're renting a condo you never know what the bed will be like, so we were THRILLED when we layed down on the first night and found complete comfort in the wonderful bed.

We had a wonderful week of sun and relaxation. We are looking forward to staying in the same unit again in the future :)

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Three of us met and stayed in Fort Myers at this lovely condo as a reunion. All of us have lived in Orlando, and have since moved away. It's such a clean beautiful place to stay, and so very convenient to all of South West Florida. Steps away from the water, across A beautiful white sand beach. Owner and leasing company were wonderful to work with. It was such a great experience.

Owner's Response: Cornerstone really is a great spot on Ft. Myers Beach and I am so glad you and your friends were able to enjoy the condo. We have been using the leasing office since 2004 and it has worked out very well. It is a safe way to make a reservation and the office is open 7 days a week. We do as much preventive maintenance as possible but just in case any issues might come up they are there and are able to handle them in a timely manner. I'm glad you had such a positive experience and I hope you and your friends can plan another reunion in the near future.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home from our stay at Cornerstone...we wish we could've stayed longer! We are a family of 4 with 2 young children and the condo was just perfect for us. Clean, quiet, close to the supermarket, shops, restaurants and Times Square but far enough to be out of the commotion. It truly is just as pictured. The beach is beautiful - powdery, white sand, steps from the condo, and only a few people scattered on the beach throughout our stay. The pool was warm and inviting. Lori was always available via email, responded quickly, and went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed - including pre-mailing info about the area and having a pack n play waiting in the condo for our youngest. We can't wait to return!! So glad we stumbled upon this gem!

A great spot!

  • 5 of 5

This is a well designed and constructed building and with only 12 units, is quite efficient. The condos have everything you need for a comfortable stay.

It is centrally located on Estero island and very close to a supermarket.

The living area has stunning sunset views of the Gulf. We spent most of our time on the screened lanai. It is the perfect spot and size for a couple in the one bedroom unit.

We plan to use this again if possible, if it doesn't get too popular. :)

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review and helping to spread the word on how wonderful Cornerstone is to potential guests. I never ask a guest to write one and am always surprised when I see one posted. I took all the pictures in the ad myself (they are updated often) and guests tell me the pictures don't do Cornerstone justice! They say a picture is worth a 1000 words but it is nice for guests to read a review written by a recent guest. Thanks again and you know I will try to accommodate you when you are ready to return for another beach vacation. Lori

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Cornerstone. With 3 teenagers, we had plenty of space. The condo is located just minutes from the main shopping and dining area, but far enough that we were away from the crowds. The extra amenities were so nice (beach chairs, umbrellas, cooler, etc.) The unit we stayed in was very clean and well stocked with everything we needed. The beach area was perfect. With only 12 units in the building, it was quiet and the pool was never crowded. We even received information about Ft. Myers beach along with some coupons in the mail from Lori prior to leaving....nice touch! We will definitely stay here again. Thank you, Lori, for a great vacation.

Amazing place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

After searching for a great place to stay in Fort Myers Beach we stumbled upon this place while searching the Internet, when we saw the excellent reviews on cornerstone we jumped at the chance to reserve a unit, when we called to get reservations we were greeted by Lori, Lori could not have been any more kind than she had been with us, on the first day we arrived we picked up our keys then we headed to the complex, upon arrival we met Lori by the pool, she is the most kind and helpful person that we ever met, so when we arrived at the unit it was clean, nice, and updated, the beds were very very comfortable and the view was spectacular, all in all this was the best place that we ever stayed at in fort Myers beach, so if you are interested in reserving a unit but apprehensive, don't be this is the place for you.

Tip for first timers to fort Myers beach: this place is ideally located because traffic at the other end of fort Myers beach can get a little bit hectic, so if your interested in an ideally located all around perfect place this is for you.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write a review and thanks for all the kind words. Finding a vacation condo on line can be a daunting task and I'm glad you were happy with your choice for this years trip to the beach. Vacation time is to short and to valuable to be disappointed in your accommodations once you arrive. I took all the pictures in the ad myself and many guests tell me the condo was nicer then the pictures! Cornerstone is one of the newer buildings on Ft. Myers Beach. The architect did a fantastic job with the step back design so everyone has a two sided screen lanai and direct views of the gulf and beach. Since there are only 12 condos it never seems crowded around the pool and of course there is plenty of beach for everyone to share. It is an easy walk from the pool gate to the waters edge and we provide the beach chairs or you can rent them from Mid Island Sports right next door. Thanks again and I hope to see you again soon. Lori
