About Terry Mabs

Ken and I live in the suburbs of Chicago. We have three children and three grandchildren. Our lives are busy and we look forward to spending a few weeks each year in Ft. Myers to unwind and do as much or as little as we choose. We plan on spending more time at Beachwalk once we retire. But for now, we are happy to share our "little bit of paradise" with you.

Terry Mabs purchased this condo in 2005

Why Terry Mabs chose Fort Myers

Ken and I have enjoyed Ft Myers ever since Ken's parents retired to the area in 1982. During a 2003 beach excursion with our three children, we passed Beachwalk and loved the Mediterranean style and the great location. Within two years, we decided to purchase our first vacation home.

What makes this condo unique

We love that there are so many beaches and activities at our doorstep or just a short drive away. The pool is so beautiful and accessible with the wide stair entrance. Best of all, we are located in building 8 right next to the pool. My tranquil mornings include a good book on the lanai, a walk up to Biscotti's or an early morning soak in the spa.

Our Carribean style heated pool at Gardens at Beachwalk is one of the nicest in Ft Myers. The pool area offers full sun or shaded seating, a large whirlpool spa and a poolside wetbar. You may also enjoy the nicely equipped fitness center, the indoor lounge area or the billiards room. A short walk will bring you to Biscotti's for a great cup of jo and some good conversation or to Publix Grocery where you can find a Redbox in the foyer for a $1 DVD rental if you prefer a quiet night in.

The best at Beachwalk Gardens

  • 5 of 5

We rented this place for the last three winters--fantastic!! The owner provides all the necessary items for your stay--these touches make you feel right at home. The people in the community are very friendly. Very large pool (heated) and loved the hot tub. There were a couple of socials for the residents. We walked across the street for groceries at Publix and there are many stores and restaurants within walking distance or a short drive including the Love Boat for ice cream. There's a nearby driving range and golf course. You can be on Sanibel Island in 10 minutes. The landlord is accessible and accommodating. The only reason we are not returning is because we are buying a condo.

This is an excellent condo to spent one or two months in. It is 5 miles to beach has a beautiful pool, hot tub, work out room. The condo has everything you will need even to take to the beach or pool. The condo is lovely decorated and it was plenty spacious enough for my husband and I. It has a Target super store across the street. Close to shopping and sightseeing. Really, all you will need is your clothes. I highly recomend this to anyone. The lady who rented this to us is the nicest person we have ever rented from and we have stayed in many states. Only reason I am not renting THIS year is my husband passed away this year. This condo holds many memories for me. I know anyone would enjoy staying here. The property is wonderfully maintained, clean and even can wash your car. Resturants are close and the LoveBoat is right down street for Ice cream (wonderful) Edison's Home is great for touring, can spend all day there. I recommend this to my best friend and I did.


There is also a Trolly you can catch right outside the gated community, to the beach.
