About this rental
DUE TO HURRICANE IAN, WE ARE NOT TAKING RESERVATIONS. PLEASE CHECK OUR WEBSITE FOR THE MOST UP TO DATE INFORMATION. Cornerstone is the perfect spot on the beach. Each condo is privately owned, but most are decorated and furnished the same. I make the reservations for eleven of the owners. At Cornerstone it never seems crowded. Rates and availability shown are for one bedroom condos. We do not offer weekly or monthly rates. We always give our current guests the opportunity to rebook their time for the following year. Because of this we typically only book 11 months out from the current date. We do not allow any pets. Please see listing #708 for two bedroom rates and availability.
All of our luxurious, romantic Ft. Myers Beach condos have direct views of the beach and gulf. There is a large heated pool servicing 12 condos, eight one-bedroom one bathroom, three two-bedroom one bathroom or one two bedroom two bathroom units. This suite contains a full kitchen, two flat screen TVs, DVD player, ipod radio, password protected internet, king size bed, queen size sofa sleeper, in room safe and a washer/dryer. The bathrooms were recently remodeled and now have a beautiful tile walk in shower. There is a welcome packet with Bath and Body soaps, shampoo and conditioner, paper products and enough coffee for your first pot in the morning and Tide for your first load of laundry.
Views from every screened lanai include breathtaking sunsets, dolphins swimming by, shore birds, boats and parasailers. Once out of the private fenced in pool area you will be only steps to the water's edge and we provide the beach towels, beach chairs, small cooler and an umbrella too! We allow short term rentals for those spur of the moment vacations. Take advantage of those great airfares that are offered in the middle of the week because our rentals are not restricted to Saturday to Saturday check ins or check outs. We have a three day minimum however, once you arrive you are not going to want to leave!
Please check our rates on the rate page. The rates change depending on the seasons .
The cleaning fee is $90 one bedroom condos and $110 for two bedroom condos. We do not charge any other additional fees, no linen fee, no resort fee, no parking fee or booking fee. We do not negotiate rates or offer any discounts. The rates change for seasonal demand. We have a management company located 1/2 mile north of Cornerstone that handles credit cards and keys for us. The office is open 7 days a week and I have been using them since we bought our condo in 2004. They are there just in case there are any issues that need to be taken care of while you are on vacation. It is peace of mind for me and for you too.
If you want to see some of FL’s best wildlife this is a good place to start. From the condo you can watch pelicans cruising by or dolphins swimming right out in front. Other visitors to our beach included ibis, egrets, gulls, & willets. Mid-Island water sports is within walking distance and the waverunner dolphin tour is fantastic. For a more daring treat they also offer parasailing.
Cornerstone is located on Ft. Myers Beach in the desirable mid island location. It is away from the commercial area to allow for a relaxing vacation. Within one mile is the Publix grocery store and the newly renovated Santani Plaza where there are great restaurants and shops. It is easy to go to the Times Square but also nice to be able to get away from all the tourists and relax out on the beach or at the pool.

About the owner: Our family has owned one of the condos at Cornerstone since the building was built in 2004. We live in both Florida and Illinois! So when I return a call you may notice an "Illinois" phone number. Lori ran the rental program until 2020, and now her family has taken it over. If you call, Jodi will answer your questions and take your reservations.
Why this property? We love the size and location of Cornerstone! It is about 3 miles south of "Time Square", or the tourist area and the main Ft. Myers Beach. It is great to be a quick drive to visit, but so nice to be far enough away to be able to relax with your loved ones! EVERY condo has a beautiful view of the Gulf of Mexico. Every lanai is fully facing the Gulf of Mexico!
Guestbook comments from the host:
We were at this condo just for 3 nights but had a wonderful vacation. The condo was clean and everything was as promised in the photos and reviews. The owner was lovely to work with and very prompt in responding to any question. The beach was right there to enjoy the water and to take our morning walks. The sunsets were magnificent and I was able to get some beautiful photos each evening. We loved dining on the patio and watching to sun go down over the horizon. I can't say enough about our wonderful stay. We would definitely stay here again.
Thought of lying about a bad review just so others wouldn’t book up . It’s that nice and going back . Actually the best for the money I’ve ever stayed . And I’ve been to a lot . Private , clean , in date interior, and so much more . Very nice not to wait forever on an elevator at a condo in July at the beach . Two weeks next year if not sooner .

Thank you for the review Kristie! I am so glad you enjoyed your vacation! I look forward to helping you book in the future! Jodi
Great Location ! Pool and beach steps away. Great view of ocean and so close to run up to condo and grab food or drinks. Kitchen was small but we ate out so it was fine for us. furniture needs updated. It was in a quiet area away from time square but close enough to go there if you wanted too. We will definitely be back !

Thank you for the review! We hope to welcome you back to Cornerstone soon!
Our condo was really nice and clean! The bed and pull out bed was comfortable also. The only thing we couldn't use was the small cooler because the zippers are broke. We had 2 pillows that didn't have pillow cases on just the pillow protector on them but no biggie. We will be back next year! The view is AWESOME and the people around that area are so laid back and nice! Thanks, Beverly

Thank you for your review Beverly. Please let the office know if anything is not in perfect working condition, we will do everything we can to make it right! We look forward to your upcoming visit next year!
First time visit to Fort Myers
Great experience for our first visit to fort Myers beach. Cornerstone was immaculate and the location was perfect. We love the beach and couldn’t have asked for a better beach location.

Hi Jana, I am so happy you enjoyed your stay! We hope to see you again!Jodi
Great location and view!
This condo was perfectly situated away from the crowds and on a beautiful beach. The view from the screened in patio was wonderful, perfect for sunsets! The condo itself was clean and perfect for what we needed. I would have given 5 stars if not for a couple things. Oddly, the cabinets in the kitchen would not stay closed. Not sure if hinges just need replaced or oiled? And the shower head was so powerful, it blew the shower curtain out and water got all over the floor. This did not only happen to us, evidenced by a piece of baseboard that has clear water damage from this continually occurring. The owners would probably only need to change out the shower head to prevent this. The pressure was great...almost too hard! And, it did help to make sure the shower head was positioned just right, which helped prevent water spillage, but just something owners might want to check into. Other than that, perfect stay, would book again and had friends in for one night that said the pull out was one of the more comfortable ones they've slept in. :)

Hi Amy, We are so happy you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for letting us know about the baseboard, we try to make every condo look perfect for our guests! We will get this repaired right away! Jodi
Cornerstone 1b / 1ba
Really enjoyed our stay last week. The view was amazing, and the balcony got a lot of use. Great amenities inside of the condo, no problems with anything. Pool was great, could even hop on wifi poolside which was perfect for our situation. Beach access super easy, took plenty of walks. We had a 1b 1ba for two of us, which was perfect size. More people likely would have been cramped, which I think they do a good job of representing on the website. Only thing we noticed was comically high water pressure in the shower, which was borderline painful.Location was perfect for us. Very quiet, not nearly as many people as the north side of the island. Walkable to Publix if you just have a couple of things. We managed without a rental car the whole week, the trolley runs somewhat regularly enough to get around when needed.Overall would recommend, and would visit again.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay! There is nothing better then spending time on the beach with family and we try to make sure our guests have everything they need. Beach chairs, umbrella, small cooler and beach towels are necessities along with a hair dryer! Thanks again for staying with us and we hope to see you again soon. Lori
Perfect Place to Stay
The location of the Cornerstone on the beach is perfect!! This place is one of the most immaculately clean and well maintained that I have ever been too!! Well stocked kitchen and everything you would need to sit on the beach! Each unit has there own chairs, umbrella and cooler! The view is so amazing and the lanai is very roomy. Oh and the pool...oh that pool. Perfect temperature with plenty of place to just lay out and relax. The Cornerstone will be one of our #1 places to stay on Fort Myers Beach!!
Stayed: November 2019Submitted: December 17, 2019
Thank you for writing a review. Prospective guests like to read recent reviews before choosing just the right place to vacation. You picked the right place and I am glad you will be planning another trip to Cornerstone in the future. Lori
Can’t beat the view!
The condo was perfect for my husband and I on a quick getaway from Wisconsin winter. We had our coffee on the screened lanai every morning where we watched the dolphins swim and the pelicans dive for fish. It was very clean, towels and bed were comfy. Steps to the beach and the beach is beautiful! Would return for sure.

I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay at Cornerstone. It is hard to pick just the perfect spot to vacation over the Internet but your review will help prospective guests pick Cornerstone. Please contact me again when you are ready to return to Ft. Myers Beach and Cornerstone. Lori
Great waterfront location!
We really enjoyed our stay at Cornerstone. It was very clean and well equipped. The bedroom, bathroom and main living area are all nicely sized and laid out. The screened lanai with a wide view of the beach and water was our favorite place to spend time. Highly recommended.
Stayed: September 2019Submitted: October 01, 2019
Thank you for taking the time to write a review and letting prospective guests know how much you enjoyed the condo. I am glad you mentioned the views of the beach and gulf and that you were able to spend time on the lanai. September can be hot and humid in Florida but when you are staying right on the water the breezes make it very comfortable. Thanks again. Lori
This Condo was Fabulous !!! The complex also was Fabulous!!! My husband and I have taken many trips and stayed in many Wonderful Condo’s But Cornerstone was The Best Inside and Out. The Service we received was the Best and everyone was kind and friendly.Thank you
Stayed: August 2019Submitted: August 23, 2019
I am so glad you enjoyed your beach vacation, that is our goal. Vacation time is to short to be disappointed in your accommodations. Thanks again and I hope you will be planning on returning again soon. Lori
Repeat Customer, Repeat Great Stay!
Lori has a great condo in a great location on FMB. There's nothing like waking up in the morning with the view of the gulf right in front of you! The condition of the unit was clean and as advertised and Lori does a great job with communication and making sure your stay is to your liking. I will definitely be back to Cornerstone in our future visits to FMB.The only negative is the never-ending construction on Estero Blvd. When will it end?
Stayed: March 2019Submitted: April 01, 2019
I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and are planning on returning in the future. There is nothing we can do about the road construction, it is more then just road construction but complete new infrastructure with new sidewalks on both sides of Estero Blvd. In the mean time we are glad Cornerstone sits back off of the road with little construction noise and the view from the lanai is west. Everyone can "wake up in the morning with the view of the gulf right in front of them!" Thanks, Lori
Great condo, great location!
We just returned from Cornerstone and this was a great unit! 4th floor directly looking at the Gulf, dolphins swimming every morning right in front of us. The condo had all the necessities and Publix is about 1/2 mile away for groceries and Red Box. Bathroom nicely remodeled and comfy king bed. Cornerstone has a very nice gulf side pool and plenty of chairs. Beach chairs and umbrella in the condo! Highly recommend!
Stayed: October 2018Submitted: October 23, 2018
Thanks Steve, I am glad you enjoyed your stay and I hope you are planning another trip soon. The view from the lanai is amazing. Lori
It was a lovely weekend. Condo was clean, had everything we needed for a perfect weekend. Close to a lot of restaurants and easy access to the beach. Having chairs and umbrella available for use was just an additional bonus.
Stayed: July 2018Submitted: July 18, 2018
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We try to provide everything needed for a relaxing vacation. Even if you aren't traveling far from home we want you to experience the entire beach vacation. That includes the chairs and umbrella. We hope to see you out on the beach again soon. Lori
Beachfront, great view. Very nice pool area and well equipped clean condo. Mid island location so it was away from congestion but easy drive to pier, etc. Great time!
Stayed: July 2018Submitted: July 10, 2018
Cornerstone really is a great spot on Ft. Myers Beach. Thank you for taking the time to tell prospective guests. Lori
Excellent condo right on the beach
This condo was perfect for the two of us to get away from work for a few days and relax on the beach. It was literally only a few steps from the condo onto the beach. The view from the living room and balcony were stunning. The condo had all of the kitchen and bathroom supplies we needed for our stay, and they even supplied beach equipment. Check in at another property up the road was a breeze, and there was ample parking in the lot at the condo building. We had no issues the entire stay, and were able to relax and forget about a work for a few days. Great place that I'd recommend to anyone visiting Fort Myers Beach.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your vacation at Cornerstone. We try to cover everything so all our guests have to do is to "relax and forget about work for a few days." It sounds like we succeeded! We have many repeat guests and I hope we see you relaxing out on the beach again. Thanks again. Lori
Excellent! We will be returning!
My husband and I stayed at Cornerstone over Christmas from December 22-31. We enjoyed our stay so much that we changed our plans and stayed another night as it was available.The location is superb. You can't get any better. It's far enough away from the crowds and also close to Bonita Springs. There is a grocery store (Publix) a couple minutes away which is very convenient.The beach is just WOW. The sand is like powder, and that gorgeous sun sets right in front the condo every night. Priceless. A couple of mornings we were lucky enough to witness dolphins swimming in the water right in front of the condo. Also, the shelling in this section of the beach is amazing!The condo itself is set up perfect. The bedroom and closet are large, as is the bathroom. The washer and dryer were very convenient to have for washing towels mid way through the stay. The kitchen and living room were cozy and just perfect. We did cook some of our own meals and everything worked great.If we had to say anything negative at all, it would be simple things that we prefer at home...shower water pressure is not great (especially for washing long hair), the bed is way too soft and the air conditioning is quite loud, especially if you are a light sleeper. These things will not hinder us from coming back, just observations that could be useful to another guest.Lori was fantastic to deal with, very prompt in responding to any e-mails sent. A pleasure to deal with!! We will be back and hope to call Cornerstone our new home away from home!

Thanks for taking the time to write a review and I'm glad you were able to extend your stay by a day. Everyone wants to arrive early and no one wants to leave! You are right about the water pressure but it is fixed now. Two months ago the water pump burned out and we were operating on an emergency replacement. A new, state of the art domestic water pump was installed two days after you left. I am sure you will notice the difference on your next trip. Thanks again, Lori
