There is a CVS across the street and down the road a bit. They have a few groceries there. We also have a Publix Grocery Store a couple miles north of us. Charley's Boathouse is always a favorite , Don't miss Fish Tales, and walk a few doors down to the Deckside/Outrigger for a great breakfast on the ocean.

Favorite Places To Eat

Heavenly Biscuit -for breakfast you can't beat it. Go early cause there is a waiting line when they open. Great Food!!
Charley's Boathouse is a favorite and always remains the same over all these years. We have enjoyed it for 40 years.
Fish House in downtown Fort Myers Beach is great, especially the grouper tacos.
Fresh Catch Bistro is also a favorite dinner place and you are right on the beach and can watch the sunset and eat either inside or outside.

Best location, and view.

We rented for three weeks, and it was lovely. You will not get a better location, and the views can’t be beat. Everyone we met was so friendly, and the owner, Pat, is the absolute best to work with.

Very Relaxing Condo and Owners

The condo inside has a very nice view. There is a BBQ on the side of condo. It was working great. The Pool is wonderful but with the Covid 19 it was extremely awkward laying out on the chairs. They have every other one taped off so you cant truly layout next to your husband. But you do get used to it. Very clean and quiet. It’s on the 9th floor so very wonderful views. It’s a decent walk to the beach because its such an in-depth sandy beach. But way better than a nasty thin beach. This beach was wonderful. Worth walking down to. Great place to go shelling too. The condo inside is very clean. Master Bed was comfortable. Couches were comfortable too. The Italian restaurant just to the south of condo was very tasty with good service. Mr Tequila restaurant to the north was very great. Not far at all. Publix is a couple of miles. Clean place. Owner Pat Elliott was so very kind. JUst a diamond. Worth renting from. We hope to be able to have the privilege to rent from her again. Deena

Prime Gulf Front and at Little Bit of Heaven

This is a lovely, comfortable two-bedroom condominium. Very well furnished and maintained with responsive owners. The gorgeous, beach-front view of the Gulf and beautiful sunsets keep up coming back every year. -Two Wisconsin snowbirds

I know you enjoy the beautiful sunsets the way we do and the sunrise is equally beautiful. We look forward to seeing you again in 2019 Take care and safe travels.

Almost Paradise

My husband and I have been going to Ft. Myers Beach for over 10 years, for 6 weeks, during March and early April. We had always stayed in the same unit and for whatever reason, the owner did not allow us the opportunity in 2017 to "roll over" for the same time period in 2018. So we had to scramble to find a place. It was our good fortune to find Pat Eliott's unit was available and we grabbed it up. It is on the 9th floor with spectacular views up and down the beach from the two Gulf facing balconies, and a beautiful view of the back Bay area from a side balcony. The unit itself was clean and well furnished with everything you would want in a kitchen (including small appliances), with more dishes, pots and pans than you could ever use. I liked the fact that there are some cabinets under a counter on the inside kitchen wall, giving more storage space. Since we stayed for 6 weeks, this was a real plus. There were towels and sheets galore. The condo complex itself, Island Winds, is, in my opinion one of the best on the entire beach. The management and owners have done a lot in the 10 years we've been staying there to keep it up to date. The fitness center has excellent equipment, including a nice flat screen TV to help with the monotony of exercising. The gas grills on both sides of the two condo buildings are new and state of the art. The upgrades to the pool and hot tub last season are wonderful. There are ample lounge chairs around the pool deck. It's just a truly wonderful place to hibernate and get away from the cold. Lastly, in this review, I want to say how nice it was to work with owners Pat and Jim Eliott. They live in the area and if you need anything they are just a phone call away. We hated to give this place up and not roll over again for 2019, but after 10 years we want to do something different and have a change of scenery. We may not ever come back to Ft. Myers Beach. I don't know. But I will tell you that, as advertised, this unit is truly "a little bit of heaven."

Beautiful!!!

We visited this beautiful condo for a July 4th stay-cation. The view was amazing...sunsets breathtaking! We loved walking the beach every morning. We saw many great birds - we especially loved the roseate spoonbills, ospreys, skimmers, pelicans and the little snowy plovers. We often saw dolphins near shore as well. The gulf breezes were a welcome break from the Florida summer heat and we were comfortable outside all day by the beautiful brand new pool because there are nice shade options and a great breeze flowing between the buildings. The condo is decorated in a pretty, contemporary, airy and light style and is really comfortable. We had a great time playing pickleball (the court is lined off on one of the tennis courts) and there's also a basketball hoop on the court. The tennis courts are across the street by the canal where our friends could visit and dock their boat. There's also a small but nice fitness center. There are even outside grills and a tiki hut for having picnics. There are lots of restaurants nearby when we didn't want to cook. But the best part was the amazing view every morning and every night from both the master bedroom and the living room, and you can even see both the beach and back bay from both bedrooms. This is a winner!!
