Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful retreat. While we're had many beach vacations, this one will surely resonate as one of the very best !

Our eight year old absolutely loved all of the wildlife in the lagoon & after 2 years of tennis lessons the clay courts were perfect.

I loved the long walks on the beach. I have to say the shell discoveries on this beach front surpassed our recent trip on the Captiva shores.

Superb Vacation Destination

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have visited Florida for more than 25 years. In all that time we have never felt so comfortable and relaxed as we did in Ginny and Gib's condo. The condo is very tastefully laid out and then there is the view from the balcony!!!!! - It is simply superb. Every morning we saw dolphins swimming very close to the shoreline and every evening we experienced the most wonderful sunsets from a completely uninterrupted viewpoint. Sitting on the balcony watching the sun sink into the horizon with a martini in one of the cool glasses Ginny had provided was "the" most relaxing experience.

We ate out a few times but we found that the best restaurant in town was the condo. There was a wide range of cooking equipment, crockery and stemware available and there was also a reliable gas grill by the pool. Most nights we ate dinner on the balcony watching the sunset - if you're looking for complete relaxation you will not be disappointed.

This spotless condo overlooks a little barrier island. We were fascinated by the range of wildlife right on our doorstep. We never tired of seeing the spoonbills, pelicans and ospreys at such close range.

The position of the condo is excellent - at the south end of the island so it has easy access to the wider Fort Myers/Bonita Beach area. We played golf several times and found the condo to be an excellent base for driving to the courses.

We are already planning a return trip - only this time for longer!

Perfect get-away from it all vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just got back from a lovely Florida vacation in this condo. We stayed a week. This condo is really clean, nicely furnished, and had everything we needed. Secure parking, pool, WiFi, TV, clock/radio, cooler, beach umbrella and chairs. With a kitchen, we ate most of our meals at "home". The grocery store is not far away. The CVS, 7-11, Subway, etc are a very easy walk. The beach was nice and clean. Very walk-able, run-able, swim-able. Not many people, and no partiers on it because it on the south end of the island. The balcony faces northwest so is shaded in morning which gave us a great place to read and drink coffee. Amazing sunsets and rainbows, lots of birds and even dolphins. There was a binocular to zoom in on the wildlife. We also found soap, shampoo, hair dryer, dish detergent, laundry supplies, salt, pepper, sugar, tea, etc. Keyless/combination lock entry was wonderful. The owners sent clear communications prior to out trip and were very easy to reach when we were there. We had a great time.

Love this perfect haven!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year staying in this perfect spot! We would never go back to the other properties in Ft. Myers Beach where we had stayed in the past before we discovered this wonderful rental. The interior of the condo has been updated very tastefully and is beautifully appointed(granite, stainless steel appliances - side by side frig with ice/water dispenser in door, beautiful cabinets in kitchen and built-ins in bedroom). The leather sofa and recliner are very comfortable(the sofa pulls out into a bed, as well). The bedroom has a king-sized bed. The balcony has a table and comfortable chairs. There is plenty of room on the balcony for the folding chaise provided by the owners for whenever I want to sunbathe and am too lazy to walk a few steps to the pool or beach! The condo/balcony is on the corner of the bldg so that it points out towards the water and has beautiful views of the water as well as up and down the beach. It's a great spot for watching wildlife, from dolphins and shorebirds down below, to ospreys, pelicans and even bald eagles soaring up past the building. Sunsets from the windows/sliding doors/balcony are amazing!! The owners provide everything you might expect when renting a condo, but go far and beyond that by providing so much more to ensure a comfortable, relaxing stay. From the more than ample dishes, pots and pans and cooking utensils, clean towels and sheets, to extras such as a portable radio and cooler. There are folding chairs, an umbrella and beach towels to take to the beach. We have stayed in other places where you have to run to the store for supplies shortly after arriving. Not so at this rental!! The owners are so thoughtful in providing everything you need upon arrival, so there is no need to run out for paper towels, dish soap, soap for the bathroom, etc. That is so appreciated after a couple of long days of travel! The pool is heated and I usually have it all to myself in the morning when I swim for exercise. The pool, the grounds and the condo itself are kept very clean. The condo bldg is in a great location, across the street from Santini Plaza where there is a fresh produce stand (on most days) and several shops and restaurants. Basic grocery items such as bread, milk, etc. are just a few steps away from that at either the CVS or the Seven Eleven.

The condo owners are very nice and always ready and willing to answer any questions about the area and to recommend activities, restaurants, etc.

Our Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Since finding Estero Beach and Tennis Club nearly 10 years ago this has become our "home away from home" ever since. This unit is definitely our favorite! Not only is the view the best, the furniture is very comfortable. The extra amenities provided are a bonus. We look forward to our yearly trip.

This place has it all.

  • 5 of 5

This place truly has it all. As advertised, it has amazing views (we watched dolphins every morning from the patio), beautiful beaches every bit if not better than Sanibel, and a luxury condo outfitted with anything and everything you could possibly want or need. The kitchen and bath are more modern than my own. It really was a quiet, comfortable, restful stay in a home away from home.

Gib and Ginny are the best of hosts and went out of their way to make our trip more than just a vacation. The condo was immaculate and they provided so many amenities that you never would expect. The kitchen was well supplied as was the bath. There was beach towels, chairs, and shell collecting nets to name only a few.There is also a lovely pool and tennis court with restaurants and shopping within walking distance.

We look forward to coming back. Our many thanks for a wonderful time.

Perfect Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the wonderful condo! It was such a great place to relax, enjoy and appreciate the ocean views and diverse wildlife that we've come to love at Estero Beach and Tennis Club. This is our 3rd time staying at this complex, and first time in Ginny and Gib's rental. It is so much nicer than the others we have rented. Gib met us at the building when we checked in and went up with us to help us get settled. Everything was very clean, upscale and comfortable - a perfect place for 2. The views from the lanai are absolutely beautiful, and we saw dolphins every day. Long walks on the beach both morning and evening were just one of the activities you can do right outside your door! If you are ever in Fort Myers Beach and looking for a perfect vacation spot, Ginny and Gib's condo is definitely worth a look.
