Wow! Love the view!!!
We loved our 2 weeks in Mike & Sue’s penthouse condo! The view was breathtaking and the condo is so well equipped with everything you will need. Not all owners leave extra products for renters, but they did. We have done our share of remodeling in our own home and it was obvious that they chose quality fixtures and appliances. The bed was so comfortable; the sheets and pillows were top notch. When we told other renters at the pool that we had a penthouse condo they thought we must have paid more for it but that was not the case at all. We hope to visit again!!!

Could not have been a better place to vacation durig these times!
We can all agree that 2020 left us feeling we all need to be someplace OTHER than the place we have been for the past 5 months and Estro Beach proved to be the perfect smart, safe, sane and relaxing location. Mike and Sue's location gave us with the perfect get-away from Maryland to a wonderful and beautiful, safe beach location. Please take advantage of the times to support the FL economy and your own santity on Estero Island at this condo. Beautiful, safe, peaceful and the break we all need through these times. Mike and Sue have been wonderful to deal with. Yes, please enjoy yourselves here.

Beautiful and peaceful Beachside Condo.
Our first trip to Fort Myers was in 2015. We were lucky enough to find this condo and Mike and Sue. We could not believe our luck when we got to the condo. You cannot ask for a better close and personal view of the beautiful ocean. The condo itself is beautiful as well. We were fortunate to stay a week in 2015. When considering our trip for this year, we decided to get in touch with Mike and Sue again to come out in September, 2019. We decided to make the most out of this trip everyday. Every morning we were up as the sun was coming up and walked on the beach with our coffee. We were lucky enough to see dolphins on our private beach a few times. We would make breakfast in the kitchen which has everything you need to cook any meal. After that we would head to the beach before it was too hot. Mike and Sue also provide chairs and an umbrella for your beach time. Amazing! Any beach activity that you can think of is right on Fort Myers beach. We rented jet ski's (did a dolphin tour this way), went on a sunset dolphin cruise, rented a moped to explore the island, deep sea fishing with Captain Tony's. We used the swimming pool onsite several times - very relaxing! We tried a lot of the restaurants - Pinchers, football the SandBar (right across the street from the condo), Smokin Oyster Brewery, Doghouse, Sunset Beach Tropical Grill &Tiki Bar. We also took a ride to nearby Sanibel and Captiva Islands - BEAUTIFUL. One night we did venture into downtown Fort Myers and ate at Joe's Crab Shack and walked downtown for awhile. Next time, we want to spend a little more time downtown as the restaurants look to be amazing. Most nights were spent on the balcony watching amazing sunsets. We were lucky enough to witness a Harvest Moon in the middle of the night. The moon reflecting off the ocean was a sight to behold forever in our memories. We have done many trips to Florida - Orlando, Tampa, Clearwater etc, but we decided that the best place to enjoy our vacations from Colorado is Fort Myers and more specifically this condo. We honestly do not want to go anywhere else in Florida. This is a more laid back relaxing atmosphere than other places we have visited in Florida. We can't say enough good things about Mike and Sue - owners of this beautiful condo. Setting up a stay was so simple and easy. Whenever we needed help with information during our stay, Mike and Sue were just an email/phone call away. Thank you so much Mike and Sue. See you 9/20.

Relaxation at its Best!
The Penthouse at Estero Beach and Tennis Club was magnificent. It provided us with all the comfort we needed for our week stay. It was very clean with all the amenities required. The view from the patio was amazing with the most magnificent sunsets.It was a pleasure to meet the owners, Mike and Sue. They were so accommodating with our timing of arrival and gave us all detailed information to make our stay as pleasurable as possible.We do plan to rent from them again.Gabriella Tavares
