About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3

Welcome to our island getaway located right on the Gulf of Mexico at beautiful Fort Myers Beach. Put your feet up and relax in our one bedroom open plan condo. We have a queen size bed, a new sofa, and new over-sized chair. An accordion door can be pulled closed to separate the bedroom for privacy. The eat-in kitchen is fully equipped with a refrigerator, stove, microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, blender, mixer and all the necessary dishes and utensils. All linens and towels are provided, including beach towels. We have wireless internet within our condo. Enjoy morning coffee or breakfast at the bistro set on the covered lanai as you plan your day.

The Estero Beach and Tennis Club is on the south end of the island, otherwise known as the “quiet” end. The complex includes a heated pool, four Har-tru tennis courts, horseshoe pits, gas BBQ grills, coin operated laundry on the ground floor of each building, free wi-fi in the lobby, plenty of free parking and 10 acres of gorgeous tropical landscaped common area with lounge chairs, all available for you to use. Just steps from our door you can stroll the 7-mile long powder white sand beach collecting seashells and bird watching.

Our great location is close to everything you may need. Across the street is Santini Plaza offering restaurants, bars, shopping, a bookstore, liquor store, deli, ice cream parlor, post office and ATM. A CVS Pharmacy is on the corner. Boating, fishing, tours, and water activities are available at the Fish Tale Marina. Just up the street is a Publix grocery store and the island movie theater. The Trolley runs the full length of the island and costs just 75 cents a ride. Heading north you will reach Ft. Myers Beach Pier and Times Square with more shopping, restaurants, nightlife and entertainment. Or go south and over the bridge to Lover's Key State Park and Recreation Area. It is a short drive to Naples and its world famous shopping areas, or make a visit to Sanibel and Captiva Islands. There are so many more places to explore, one need never be bored.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to let you know we loved your condo. We were comfy, took long walks on the beach and found beautiful shells and sand dollars. Watched sunrises from the balcony along with an eagle on the roof of the next building. Enjoyed the sunset celebration on the beach. Convenient to restaurants and sunset cruise across the street. Lovers Key was a nice day also. Thanks for sharing, Laurie P.S. we had a fire drill on Monday, with screeching alarms and walked down the 11 flights! That was exciting! Decided it was good for me and took the stairs down a few more times during the week:)

Couldn’t have been better!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolute perfect week! The unit was clean and very accommodating. Literally steps to a beautiful beach where we saw dolphins every day! The beach was never crowded and very private. Sooo many shells! We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary in a great spot! Can’t wait to go back!

The condo was very clean and cozy! It was stocked with everything we needed.

We had a wonderful time at EBTC. The grounds and buildings were very clean and the staff was friendly. We were only steps from the beach and enjoyed shelling, watching the dolphins, and beautiful sunsets.

Third year for us!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay on Ft. Meyer's Beach in this unit. It has everything we need and Diane is very easy to work with. The location is great - long walks on the beach, restaurants right across the street make it very convenient. We took a sunset cruise this year at Fish Tale Marina (a short walk across the street) which was great. We plan to be back next year.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The condo is on the quiet end of the island. Perfect location. Santini Plaza is right across the street, which has pretty much anything you need. Fabulous restaurants and beautiful shops. The condo has everything you need to make your vacation a pleasure. The kitchen is well stocked and the furniture is comfortable.

The view is beautiful. You can see the Gulf and the bay.

I’ve already booked again for next year.
