About the Property
What is our best feature, location or views? We invite you to enjoy our home away from home and decide for yourself.
Our Harbour Pointe condo is conveniently located 30 miles from the airport, on the quiet south end of the island on the calm, protected Estero Bay. Nestled beside the Nature Preserve, some of the best warm water white sand beaches on the Gulf of Mexico, and near the marina, the views and tranquility of Estero Bay are amazing. Don’t pay for a dolphin and manatee watching tour when you can see them in our boat canal, or by kayak, or paddle-board! Or perhaps you'd enjoy fishing right from our private boardwalk. The private beach access is a lovely 10 minute walk away, alongside the old golf course, or you can park your car half way on the golf course property. A 50 cent trolley ride can take you anywhere on the island for shopping and restaurants. Or simply walk around the corner to Santini Plaza where you’ll find our favorite places to dine. Beach chairs, umbrellas, mats, towels, cooler, and a beach cart are provided. Just bring your hat, sunglasses, swimsuit, and floppies. Whatever you desire for your perfect beach place can be found here.
Our condo has been renovated with a fun eclectic style. You'll enjoy the newer refrigerator, quartz counter tops, carpet, paint, furniture, bedding, and linens. We’ve supplied very high quality mattresses and sheets to assure a perfect night's sleep. The master bedroom has a newer king mattress, a 40 inch flat-screen TV, and ceiling fan. The private master en-suite has a shower/soaker tub combination and a large dressing area with full length mirrors, an iron and ironing board, and a hair dryer. The guest bedroom has two high quality extra-long twin mattresses suitable for adults and a ceiling fan. There is also a twin sofa sleeper in the bonus/entry room and a washer and dryer in the condo.
The condo has an open, airy floor plan with lots of windows. The living room has a newer velvety soft sofa, a leather swivel reclining lounge chair for him, and a leather chair and ottoman for her, for relaxing in front of the 55 inch flat-screen TV. Cable TV and wi-fi are provided. The kitchen is fully stocked with small appliances not found in typical rental units. The screened corner wrap-around lanai and extra windows are only available on end units like ours. Check out the photos and large list of other amenities, including a bay-side salt purified heated pool and hot tub, and two BBQ areas overlooking the bay.
Watch the osprey, dolphin, and boats in the bay while basking in the sun at the pool. You can spot the manatees in the boat canal by looking for a swirl of surface water followed by the tip of their nose catching a breath of air. Then their body can be seen with their huge wide tails. Elusive bald eagles and alligators can be seen on the old golf course if you're lucky. And we believe we have the most fantastic, secluded, white sand beach on the island with huge piles of seashells. Spectacular sunrises and sunsets surround you. Everyday is filled with amazing sights and sounds for nature lovers. Come relax and rejuvenate your soul!
You'll get six months for the price of four! A six month minimum lease is required. Please contact me for availability.
Perfect location to enjoy everything Fort Myers Beach has to offer without the crowds - bay, beach, fishing, shelling, restaurants, biking, kayaking, boating, sunrises and sunsets, dolphins, manatees, tennis, etc, etc - all within walking distance or a short ride on the trolley. There's a bike storage area under the club house next to the pool. The club house has ping pong and a pool table. The swimming pool is long enough for laps, is salt purified and heated, and has relaxing views of the bay. We have two BBQ decks on the bay and a hot tub. You can watch the osprey in their nest, the manatees and dolphin in our boat canal, or the alligators in the old golf course ponds. We have a private fishing pier or you can fish from our boardwalk. The building has an elevator and grocery carts and ample parking.
Why Kids Love It
White sand beaches with piles of seashells, warm shallow calm water, dolphins, manatees, loggerhead turtles. Big heated swimming pool, ping pong in the clubhouse. Fishing right from our boardwalk.
Fort Myers Beach is a barrier island about 7 miles long with white sugary sand beaches, calm shallow warm water, and huge piles of seashells. It's very close to Lovers Key, Barefoot Beach, and Sanibel. Wildlife abounds in Estero Bay. Dolphins, manatees, loggerhead turtles, and birds are here!
All the usual water sports are available on the island and we're located next to the main canal to the marina. Santini Plaza is within walking distance with restaurants, 7-Eleven, CVS, post office, etc. You'll feel right at home.

Favorite Places To Eat
There are many places to dine in Santini Plaza just around the corner. You have your choice of Subway sandwiches, Italian food, pizza, breakfast and ice cream, or nicer dining. A block from there is Pincher's seafood with an outside tiki bar on the beach and live music, and the sunsets there are incredible. Not far from there is Charlie's Boat House with really good food and a salad bar. They also have early dining discounts. It's a 10 minute car ride off the south end of the island to Iguana Mia's mexican food, Mel's Diner (I love the twin lobster tails), or Jet's Pizza (they'll also deliver to the island). Or there are numerous eating establishments on the north end of the island. We like Pierside Grill and Dairy Queen in Times Square on the beach next to the pier.

About the owner: We own and manage residential rental properties in our home state. We've done this for over thirty years along with our professional careers. We wanted a vacation rental on the beach that we could enjoy in our retirement years. We found southwest Florida checked all the boxes for us and Harbour Pointe on the quiet south end of Fort Myers Beach was the perfect spot.
Why this property? We fell in love with Ft Myers Beach and our condo's location the first time we saw it. We traveled to other popular beaches on the mainland and elsewhere, and researched prices and accessibility to recreation, but found our condo's location and facilities surpassed all our wants and desires, when others were lacking in one way or another. We couldn't be happier or want or need another thing. We're spending our retirement years with family and friends fishing in the calm back waters and interacting with the dolphins and manatees. Life is beautiful!
