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:)

Enjoyed our time on Ft. Meyers Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay in the Island Getaway on the Beach for two weeks in March this year. This was our second time in this condo. Its well equipped with towels, kitchen and beach items, etc. On warm days we enjoyed sitting on the patio. Looking forward to staying again next year!

Everything was very clean and comfortable. The place was very well supplied. It was very cozy and we were blessed with very good weather. The only negative we found was that the parking lot was very, very dark with lights shining away from the lot. Also didn't have a whole lot of parking for the amount of people staying there.

Well done!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at your condo. Everything was as pictured and well stocked; from the cooler, to the beach towels, to the beach chairs. We enjoyed the views as well as the gulf and bay breezes from the lanai. We appreciated the easy access to Santini Plaza as well as the nearby restaurants. Everything was just a short walk away.

Beautiful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We rent this unit for 3 weeks during our christmas vacations and we had a wonderful time. The condo was very well maintained and well furnished. We have played tennis, made sandcastles on the beautiful beach, and we have seen a lot of dolphins right in front of the resort. We have had a lot of beautiful shells to our collection. I would highly recommand this location to anyone. Thanks Mr and Mrs Bushheit!

Wonderful property, well located. Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

The description of the property was very accurate. We loved the location, directly on beach with direct access to the beach, note several of the nearby buildings have difficult access to beach. Wonderful views of sunrises from balcony. 11th floor breezes were welcome! Well equipped, clean, smallish (517 Sq ft) but fine for us as we were 2. Publix is just a few miles away. Easy parking, quiet area. We preferred this quiet end of the island to the more busy (and heavy traffic area) of the North part of the island. Also, owner was a great communicator.
