About the owner: We are long-term Chicago residents who tired of the cold winters. Looked for a winter home and decided on either Fort Myers or Sarasota as both are real cities with cultural amenities. Fort Myers beach had the best of both worlds: a laid-back beach community but close to shopping, restaurants and entertainment.
Why this property? Location, location, location. Cannot find a better place to put your toes in the sand and truly relax yet there are many options if you want to be active. Property is clean and well-managed, residents both full-time and visitors extremely friendly.

Guestbook comments from the owner:
We were beyond thrilled with our accommodations and loved the beautiful view of the beach! We enjoyed having the pool on the beach side and the water temperature was always perfect. Everything was kept tidy and neat with daily cleaning of the grounds. The staff were very helpful with any questions we had. Our condo was the right size and very comfortable with wonderful amenities within. There was adequate towels, linens, dishes, cooking utensils, and pots and pans. We are looking forward to our stay there again next year.
The four of us had a very relaxing time at this well furnished, immaculate condo rental. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed to make meal preparation easy. There are gas barbecues in the yard for use by the guests. It is an easy walk to the town center and also a bus that runs on a regular basis. There's plenty of shaded parking and it is nice and quiet but close to restaurants, the library and shopping. The wide white sand beach is wonderful for a quiet morning or evening walk and the private lanai is a perfect spot to view spectacular sunsets! We will definitely return when we come to Florida again.
The location is ideal. Walking distance to grocery store, quaint shops, restaurants, and town square. Buses also run often as an alternative to walking. We also enjoyed going to the library close by. The condo is clean with beautiful view of beach and water. We like to eat in, so the fully equipped kitchen and outdoor barbeque were perfect. We enjoyed the pool, and just steps away, the white sand beach. You must not miss the amazing sunsets!! Can't wait to return!
Loved our stay here. Must be the time of year but it was like we had our own private beach at times and most of the time the pool to ourselves. Condo was roomy with everything we needed including beach chairs. Nice having the gas barbecues to use. Kids loved seeing dolphins swim by while we were on the beach. Would definitely like to stay here again.

We enjoyed our stay at Estero Beach and thought this 2 bedroom, 2 bath was perfect for us. Actually we didn't need 2 bedrooms but the price was right and I liked the view from the 5th floor. The balcony is huge and we ate dinner there many nights as the sun went down. Since we didn't have a car, having the grocery store directly across the street was ideal. The only complaint I had was that there was some type of construction/ maintenance going on 3 out of the 10 days we were there and it was extremely noisy on those days, all day. Also, the pool was closed for one of those days also. But other than that I would not hesitate to go back or to recommend this condo complex to anyone wanting a quiet area on Ft Myers beach and yet still be close enough to walk to the pier for a little entertainment. We met many friendly people who lived there year round who always asked if we were enjoying ourselves. I was very impressed with this area and hope to be back soon.
