"Excellent condo near nice part of Ft Myers Beach"
We stayed in the 1 bedroom unit. Our stay was quite pleasant - we picked up some groceries at the Publix grocery a half mile away and were able to make a few meals (mostly breakfast and lunch). We spent the whole day on the beach during our first full day, drove to Sanibel & Captiva Islands on the second day and took the Everglades Adventure tour on our last full day there (the tour started at the marina near the Publix). This was probably the best beach getaway we've taken.
The condo is conveniently located a 2-minute walk away from the beach. It is situated near a nicer, quieter section of Ft Myers Beach, away from the busier/tackier part. The beach itself is quite nice - white sands and warm enough water in the first week of December that we could swim. The waves were pretty calm and there was not much seaweed along the shoreline.
There is a swimming pool at the condo, though I'm not sure why anyone would want to use it with the beach so close by. There's also a grill, in case you want to do some outdoor grilling.

Very nice location, good value & located right on the beach. In December, the beach is nearly deserted. Plenty of very nice restaurants nearby, & a very nice full grocery was close (Bailey's General Store). Bike trails are everywhere. The condo was completely furnished (from pots & pans, to books, to plates, glasses & utensils) & clean upon arrival. Covered parking was a nice feature. Rooms were very quiet, little noise coming through from other units. Balconies all overlook the water. We felt very safe there. This entire island is a very restful location. If you like daily maid service & lots of entertainment, this is not for you, but was a perfect relaxing locale for us.
Don't bother making any special requests, we booked nearly a year in advance, asking for a top floor, but only got a second floor unit. Also, Expedia reports checkout time of noon, but on arrival, you are told it is actually 10:00am, no exceptions. We had booked our return flight with a noon checkout in mind. The only explanation was "Expedia shouldn't say that". I've never been to a facility with a checkout that early.
