The location on the beach is perfect, being far enough away from Times Square to avoid the crowds and close enough to walk to the area and enjoy the restaurants and other activities.
The white sugar sand is great for all kinds of beach activities.
The waves from the Gulf are generally mild with no undertow making this one of the safest beaches in Florida.
The sunsets are magnificent. Most evenings the residents walk down to the beach just to experience the spectacular colors.
Why Kids Love It
Kids love being able to play on the expansive white sand beach and be steps away from enjoying the Club pool. Parents love being able to enjoy the beach or Club pool while being able to watch their children at play. Very few sites have beach front pools.
Kids also love water the park at Bay Oaks Park which is across the street. It offers both a shallow kiddie area and a full sized pool with a water slide.
In the condo we provide a wide variety of beach toys and games for kids of all ages. Also, it is a short walk to rent bicycles, wave runners, pontoon boats and go para-sailing.
We are located just 1 mile south of the pier and within walking distance of numerous restaurants & shops. Directly across the street is Bay Oaks city park with two pools & water slides, Frisbee golf, tennis & basketball courts.
Jet ski and parasailing rentals are available on the beach. The island trolley (75 cents) stops at the Estero Beach Club and runs the 7 mile length of the island to Bonita Springs. Dinner, pirate and gambling cruises, and fishing charters are nearby. Off the beach you can tour historic landmarks, museums, parks, and nature preserves. Numerous golf courses are within a short driving distance
Attractions Within Walking Distance
The main attraction is the beach. It is a pleasant stroll to the boardwalk with its restaurants, bars, and other attractions including parasailing, and wave running. Across the street an excellent park with a large public pool, ball fields and disk golf course.
Visit the Thomas Edison and Henry Ford winter homes in Ft. Myers. Edison built a winter home and laboratory in Ft Myers and his close friend, Henry Ford, built a residence on the adjacent lot. You can tour their homes, and gardens, and Edison’s laboratory and museum. The property is well maintained and interesting to all ages. It is 15 miles from the beach at 2350 McGregor Blvd. Look for the giant banyan tree while you are there.
The Mound House is a short distance away from the condo. It is a restored house museum atop an ancient Calusa Indian shell mound, with artifacts & cultural programs. 451 Connecticut St, Fort Myers Beach.

Year Purchased: 1998
About the owner: Peggy’s career has been in clothing and textiles management and later in architectural drafting and sales. Jim is a chemical engineer who worked in research and later in manufacturing management for companies producing plastic products and promoting plastics recycling. We have been visiting and enjoying Fort Myers Beach for over two decades, bringing our children, and grand children to this wonderful vacation destination. We live in Lexington, Kentucky and arrange family vacations at our condo every year to bring the family together in a paradise where there is enjoyment for children and adults of all ages.
Our son and daughter-in-law, Casey and Bethany, are now handling rental arrangements. They are both experienced property managers and will assure an excellent vacation experience.
Why this property? Peg first came to Fort Myers Beach in the early 1990s and fell in love with the area. When her sister purchased a condo at Estero Beach Club in 1997 we came to visit and after a week on the beach we decided to buy the first unit that came available. We have owned our condo for over 20 years and have never regretted it. We have met a lot of great people at the condo who are both owners and renters. We are sure your will have similar experience.

Thanks for renting from us Kathleen. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay at Peg's Paradise. We love the Estero Beach Club and always enjoy our time there.We are driving down next week. If you noticed anything that needs to be replaced or fixed, I would appreciate knowing. We want all of our guests to enjoy their time at the beach and Peg's Paradise and to have all of the comforts of home.Feel free to contact me at PegsParadise@
We enjoyed this condo. Location is ideal for the beach. Space was adequate for 2 bedroom. Just be aware one of the bedrooms windows faces the hallway and light does shine in through the shutters -also the elevator is right outside the window but it doesn’t go very often due to few condos on the floor. That’s the other nice part there are just 6 condos on each floor. Very accommodating place - we have rebooked!

Peggy and Bethany were very accommodating. They were very attentive in returning emails and in communicating on any and all questions regarding the renting of the condo. Kitchen was stocked with anything you would need. The beds were very confrontable. The view was beautiful. Just wish the pool and hot tub hour’s were extended.Will be returning next year !!

The girls paradise
This is Paradise; every single items listed was available and we did not want for anything!!! Gorgeous views, fabulous pool and love the idea that you can hear and see the ocean while resting by the pool. Peg’s ideas’s, tips and communication were perfect!!! The trolley was a huge bonus; we’d walk down to the park at the end with the turtles and take the trolley back. Perfect sunsets and perfect walk in to town. Our vacation was a 12 out of 10!!

Thanks Marvel for your glowing review. I'm so glad that you all enjoyed. We try hard to provide our renters with the comforts of home while at Peg's Paradise.Since pools are no longer allowed to be constructed on the beach, our piece of Paradise at the Estero Beach Club, with the pool on the beach, is an idyllic and unique location to vacation. Thank you for renting from us. I look forward to hearing from you for a future stay. Peg

Spent lovely 2 weeks in this condo. Great location, walking distance to Times Square & many restaurants, bars & shops. Condo ist clean & very well equipped. The property is well maintained. Enjoyed many evenings outside on terrace with BBQ. Direct access to the beach with fine white sand is very convenient. We can definitely recommend this place.

Thank you Ursi. So very glad that you enjoyed Peg's Paradise and the Estero Beach Club. We too enjoy walking on the 'sugar white sand' to the pier. Peg
Peggy and staff, Sonja and Marti, could not have been kinder and more accommodating! Booked on short notice, all went out of their way to make our wonderful vacation happen! The condo was spotless, comfortable, and had the most amazing views from nearly every window. The photos on the listing are just as it is! We enjoyed our balcony views every morning, the pool was one of the nicest we have seen, the beach and sand were stunning- the whitest and softest sand I've ever walked on! This was our first time visiting the Gulf side and we're hooked. We dined at many local restaurants and found it convenient to be able to walk to a few of them, right around the corner off of the beach. The entire condo complex was always extremely clean and very well kept. Just being able to view the ocean from the pool and condo was very relaxing. Peggy- thank you so much for your generosity. From the ease of booking to going the extra mile making sure we felt at home and were aware of all the area has to offer. Directions to local grocery stores, attractions, and tips and tricks. You made us feel like family! We would absolutely come back to Estero Beach Club! We were grateful it was a quiet, safe, low key place to stay. Couldn't ask for more! With gratitude- Jodi and Jeff.

Paradise on the beach
Hi we are just arrived back in England after a great week in Pegs Paradise. The unit has everything we needed . It's very spacious and clean with lots of little items that made it feel like our home on the beach. The views are stunning and the pool and beach very special. Great places to eat locally and I rented a pontoon for a day and picnicked on Lovers key. Just lovely . Thanks Peggy & Jim

Thanks Geoff. So glad that you enjoyed your stay at Peg's Paradise. We do try to make it feel like home, especially with having enough kitchen items - silverware, glasses (including wine glasses) plates, bowls, etc. that you don't have to run the dishwasher until it is full. Please don't hesitate to contact me for a future rental. Peg
Peg’s Paradise (June 2019)
Peg’s Paradise was great and has all the accommodations a family needs. The condo was in great shape and very clean. The pool is right next to the ocean and is maintained well. The Condo is located in a great spot close to restaurants, bars, and grocery stores. Peg is very responsive and it was a pleasure renting from her. I will be returning to Peg’s Paradise in the future. My only regret is staying for one week...next time will stay for a longer period of time.Thanks!! Pete R

Thanks Pete. So glad that you enjoyed and were happy with the accommodations. Just let me know when you want to come back. Thanks for renting from us. Peg
Gorgeous oceanview condo
Besides the view, the quick beach access, the fun rec center across the street, there is nearby putt putt golf for the kids, and better yet, they can feed the gators! There are great restaurants that are within walking distance. Go to Mom's and be really hungry for a delicious breakfast, and Mr. Tequila just down the road has good food, great specials and is reasonably priced. A place you will want to go back to again and again.

LOL You did a great job of experiencing a lot in a short time. So glad that you all, including grandsons, had fun and enjoyed your stay at Peg's Paradise. Our grand son loves the putt putt golf also.We are one of the few condos at the Estero Beach Club who welcome children, including young children. I look forward to hearing from you again. Peg
Such a nice condo!
We had a wonderful time in Peg's condo. The condo was very nice and clean and looked like the provided photos. The condo is directly located at the beach with a very nice view on the ocean. The coomunication with Peg was very good. She always provided a prompt answer on our questions. Additionally she provided us with a lot of information which places we can visit in the surroundings who can be interesting for us. When we come back to Fort Myers I will definitely contact Peg for spending the time in her condo. The time was really a dream...
