I actually have mixed feelings writing this review because I would rather that people not find out what a gem this is. But anyway, where to start ? 1) Owner - The owner was a pleasure to deal with. Very flexible, easygoing, and well organized. 2) Location - The location for this condo is excellent. It is in the southern area of Ft Myers beach. This keeps you away from the worst of the traffic but still within easy reach of restaurants, stores, and shops. There is a large grocery store within 5 minutes. There are also a number of restaurants, although the kitchen in the condo is so nice, we didn't want to go out. The south beach location also allows a second option for access using the causeway further south at Bonita Springs. There is zero traffic in that direction and it is a very pleasant ride. Depending on where you are headed in the Ft Myers area, it can be quicker. 3) Beach Access - Beach access is easy, just a short walk across the street. There are vendors for beach chairs and jet skis. The beach itself is very nice with great sand. There isn't much public access along here, so there were no crowds. Jet skiing is great along here - very calm and we saw sea turtles, pelicans, and dolphins. 4) Condo Supplies - I have stayed in a number of condominium rentals and have to say this one was, by far, the best equipped. Everything you could want - plenty of towels, beach equipment, cart, bicycles, EXTREMELY well outfitted kitchen. 5) Condo layout - It is a 2 bedroom unit with each bedroom at opposite ends and each with a full bath. This was a great arrangement because I could let my son sleep in while I got up early and went out for a walk on the beach. The kitchen is in the center and has just been upgraded - new appliances, counters, etc. A real pleasure to use. There is also a full laundry room. The views are excellent too with a balcony overlooking mangroves on the bay side. There is also a balcony outside the front door that overlooks the gulf side and is wonderful for watching sunsets. 6) Covered parking - I didn't realize how nice this would be until we experienced it. With the Florida sun, it was nice to park under cover. Also, didn't have to worry about putting the top up. 7) Amenities - We were in town for a baseball tournament which kept us pretty busy, so we didn't have a chance to use them, but there were tennis courts and nice pools. We did use the grill next to the building.
