About the owner: Dick and I are from MN and love our condo in FMB. We are here several times a year. We have taken great care in making your stay in our "home away from home" a pleasant experience. Our new renovation is top-of-the-line quality and our many repeat guests have expressed how much they like it.
We are new to this site, so reviews are just beginning. I hope you choose our condo for your next Florida vacation. You won't be disappointed.
In 2020 we built a house in Estero, only 40 minutes from the Condo. We spend winter there and are on the beach almost weekly. We take great care to make sure the condo it "super" clean and everything is in working order.
Why this property? We chose this property because of the proximity to the beach. It is a quiet part of Estero Island but still close enough to walk (5 miles) to Times Square.
Excellent restaurants both north and south of our condo, plus one right across the street! The fact that the grocery store is within walking distance is a major plus.

Guestbook comments from the owner:
Property and condo were very well maintained. We enjoyed our stay very much.
Very nice condo and great location right on the beach. Very relaxing and quiet. Condo had everything we were looking for.
Reviewer location - Wausau, WI

Rental was super easy. Beautiful views on quiet area of Ft Myers Beach. Kids loved the pool. Beds were comfortable and towels were thick. Would stay again.
We stayed two weeks in this condo and enjoyed it very much. The staff from Kathy Nesbit Vacations (manages this property for the owner) was so very helpful and responsive to a few questions/items that came up during our stay. It's really important to have someone local you can speak with when renting. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals. The living room was very comfortable. The beds were VERY good which was great so we could all get a good night sleep. Our family has been coming to Ft. Myers Beach for almost 10 years now and the Smugglers Cove complex is really a perfect location with wonderful views, fast access to the beach and a terrific salt water pool that gets sun all day since it's not between buildings like a lot of other complexes. Thanks for the terrific stay!

Property was as described, very clean with everything we needed. Beach was not crowded and outside area and pool very nice. Will definitely stay there again.
This part of the beach was the best, not too crowded and beautiful sand. I also liked the nice "backyard" area by the beach where you could lay out without getting sandy if you wanted. There were also tiki huts for shade and tables and grills for grilling out by the beach. The Publix was really close and the location was a short drive to everything else. The pool was very clean and nice and everyone was friendly. But the most impressive thing was the beautifully updated condo. Everything was perfect. I LOVED how I could look the kitchen window in the morning and see the sun rising on the waterway. Then to the lanai with my coffee to watch dolphins swim by. The lanai was screened in with a slider in the living room and in the bedroom. So since the weather was really nice you could leave them open and hear the ocean day and night. The sunset from there in the evening was gorgeous and from the condo all you could see was ocean! So we liked the 6th floor and the elevator was always fast for us. Perfect!

Paradise Cove Condo
Beautifully furnished, comfortable sitting area. The view was spectacular! The best part was hearing the ocean even with the bedroom window closed. So relaxing.

Thanks for your kind review Laureen! We're glad you had a relaxing time on beautiful Fort Myers Beach. Hope to have you back soon! Dick and Donna Unit 6B6
Beautiful two bedroom beach condo.
Unit 6B6 is a beautifully decorated 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo facing the gulf waters-steps from the beach. The full kitchen is great, granite counter tops, full sized appliances and all you could possibly need- wine glasses, crock pot, serving trays, everything. We love the screened lanai for dining or watching the spectacular sunsets. We so enjoy the view from the unit, it seems you can see down the beach forever. The extra beach chairs and beach umbrella in 6B6 help to make the sand and sun even more fun. We have stayed in unit 6B6 once or twice a year for several years. It is the perfect place to enjoy our favorite beach, and of course we will return.

Thanks so much for your kind review! It's always great to hear from you and that you enjoyed your time at the beach and you're happy with our condo! Hopefully we'll see you in November Thanks so much! Dick and Donna
Calm in a crazy world
We arrived at our condo on February 13, 2021. We were somewhat concerned regarding the condition of the condo as we had only seen photos. We were surprised and happy that the condo was over and above our expectation. It was the best decorated and cleanest condo we had ever stayed in. When we opened the refrigerator we were greeted with a "Welcome" bottom of wine. What a thoughtful gift from the condo owner. Everything we needed was stocked in the condo. Publix grocery store is about 2 blocks away so we could walk to the grocery store to purchase our needs. Very central location to Times Square and other eating establishments. Beach was wonderful. We saw dolphins several times which is always exciting. Condo grounds are clean and well taken care of. We had hoped to book the condo for February of 2022, but someone beat us to it. Definitely our loss.

Thank you for you're Excellent review. Our goal is to make your vacation the best ever! Thanks so much.
Great property and location
Great vacation rental on the beach. The location is perfect easy access to grocery shopping and restaurants within walking. Loved watching the dolphins every morning from the balcony while having coffee. The condo was perfect size with everything you would need. Weather was great. This was our 2nd time staying there and would highly recommend it.

Thank you for your kind review Tina and Todd. It's very helpful for potential renters to hear how much others have enjoyed our condo on beautiful Fort Myers Beach ⛱️ Happy New Year!
Great condo & location!
We have been on many beach vacations in numerous locations over the last 45 years. This one ranks right at the top. It is just steps from the ocean, full ocean view 24/7, the greatest walking beach with dolphins in view almost daily, lovely sunsets from the beach or lanai, and a warm pool. The grassy area between the building and the ocean is a great place to lounge in the sun. The grounds are kept immaculate. The tiki hut with 4 new grills is a great place to bbq while watching the ocean waves a few feet away. The 6b6 unit is amazing....Updated granite counter tops & lovely cabinets, & everything you could want in a kitchen to cook a gourmet meal or a quick lunch including tropical themed dishes! There are comfortable beds & furniture, 3 large TV screens , a cabinet with DVD’s to watch at night, screened lanai with lovely porch furniture to enjoy the ocean while eating a meal, umbrella and beach chairs for the sandy beach... All the little touches add to the vacation experience! 6b6 even has dimmers on the lights, & a convenient keyless entry to the unit! Smugglers Cove offers a peaceful place In a location away from massive crowds, yet an easy walk to the grocery store, or a short trolly ride to the action at City Square.

Thanks so much for taking the time to share your comments on your vacation. We are happy your stay was everything you anticipated! Looking forward to your return. Blessings, Dick and Donna
Wonderful property and location
What an amazing vacation spot! The condo is gorgeous with everything you need. Donna was awesome to rent from and answered every question in detail. The condo is on a beautiful beach and the dolphins were so fun to watch. This is such a great rental and our girls had their own private space. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation, this is for you! We had an amazing time and can’t thank Donna enough for allowing us to enjoy a slice of heaven! We can’t wait to go back.

Thank you Melissa for your great review! I'm fairly new to this site, so reviews are crucial. I'm looking forward to having you back again. Unit 6B6
A beautiful apartment on a perfect spot on the beach. The building is well managed. The 2/2 apartment we rented was clean and well equipped. Parking was ample and we were close to Publix. The Smugglers Cove building includes wifi, but it is still using DSL as the connection, so it is slower than your mobile phone. They promised to upgrade that in 2020, but if you need to work remotely while staying there, check the status of their internet upgrade. Overall an excellent place!

Hi Robert, Thanks for your feedback! Yes, we are currently addressing the internet connection speed and will have that taken care of shortly. Being an island, it has been a challenge getting the state-of-the-art service to our area. Thanks so much for your business and hope you come back soon. Dick and Donna 6B6 The Board of Directors has just approved Century Link High Speed fiber optic internet.
Beautiful Clean Condo
This beautiful condo, because it is mid-island is conveniently located near everything! We didn’t have a rental car this time and we walked, biked or took a trolley everywhere we wanted to go. It is also only steps away from the gulf. The white sandy beach is beautiful! The lanai has a very nice fan and is a haven. We loved watching birds, dolphins and the beautiful gulf from here. Because this condo is so nicely appointed with extra little things like quiet ceiling fans, canned lighting, under cupboard lighting, extra towel bars and drying rack in the lanai, and a makeup mirror in the master bath it felt like home and made the stay so comfortable. The owners and rental staff were easy to work with and friendly! We Have been coming to this beach for over thirty years and this is by far our favorite condo! We can’t wait to rent it again!!

Beautiful Condo/Beautiful Beachfront
I love this beautiful, updated condo on Fort Myers Beach. The condo is very clean, organized and displays an updated, quality designed kitchen/living room/bedrooms/bath. The balcony faces one of the most beautiful/clean areas on Fort Myers Beach. It’s Beachfront consists of a well maintained lawn area and then down a few steps to the beach. I have stayed at this condo twice before and will again in the future. We even have sent our son/wife here for their honeymoon.
