For our first trip to Ft Myers Beach I initially booked a hotel on Estero Island. After some discussion with my wife we decided to look for a condo to rent, mainly for the added space. For the same price as the hotel we were able to rent 2x the space with a full kitchen, private washer and dryer and all the privacy you could ever want.
The condo itself was absolutely beautiful, with all the amenities of home. The kitchen was spacious with a large island, up to date appliances and very clean. The living room was also open to the kitchen with a fantastic view of the beach and the Gulf leading out to the balcony. Both bedrooms were accommodating with a bathroom adjacent to each, which made it very convenient. The master bathroom was bigger than expected and had great design features that we would like to implement in our own home. I suppose the only downside to this rental could be that there is no maid service. I personally enjoy not having to worry about someone I don't know cleaning our rooms and possibly rummaging through our bags. Plus, its the closest I get to actually living on the beach.
Overall, this was the greatest vacation we have had. The condo was perfect-right on the beach, more than enough space for the two of us and just a short walk to times square. We will definitely be coming back.
The vacation rental agency was so helpful and it was a close 10 minute walk to Times Square and all the action! The condo itself was beautiful, sunsets on the back balcony over the Gulf and breakfast on the front balcony over the marina. The beach was empty and a close walk to everything! We didn't even need a car. A fantastic place to stay, we hope to come back each year!

706 is a nice unit and was clean and stocked with the necessary supplies. The best part of the place is the view! The complex it is located in is in fairly good shape. The pool is a bit small and the only drawback is that you are not allowed to use the pool at the Pink Shell resort next door. We had a bit of pool envy.
