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.

Lovely gulf-front condo!

  • 5 of 5

Ginny and Gib's condo is exceptionally clean! It is stocked well with lots of amenities - coffee, soap, shampoo, sunscreen, bug spray - we brought our own, but it was nice to know there was extra in case we ran out. They also had beach towels, chairs, umbrella, shell bag and binoculars. The view from their condo/patio is amazing - we enjoyed every meal on the patio! The air conditioner stopped working during our stay and Gib was there very quickly with a repairman and literally replaced the entire air conditioner the same day - we couldn't believe the quick response! The pool was very clean and warm! Access to the beach was a very short walk and the shells were plentiful. This condo is located well down the road from the busyness of Fort Myers Beach's hub. We rode the trolley down to experience all the action, but appreciated the quietness of Estero Beach and Tennis Clubs' location. It was a great spring break vacation!

Everything was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at this condo! The view is breathtaking! We watched dolphins every day! We enjoyed all the species of birds from our balcony! Ginny and Gib were great to work with! They have thought of everything from the binoculars to the shell collection bag! This is our favorite area of Fort Myers Beach for a relaxing week at the Beach and staying at this condo makes things even more relaxing as you have everything you need!

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.
