Entrance Drive to Estero Beach & Tennis Club
Our condo is located at Estero Beach and Tennis Club (EB&T). EB&T
is located on the largest "plot" on the island. There are 10 acres of
nicely landscaped property for you to explore and enjoy.
This includes a lake (with fountain) right next to the palm-tree lined
drive as you first pull into the property. Lots of parking (free for our
guests) is available, and the EB&T condominiums are located in three
The pool is heated to a wonderful 85° for those cooler winter months and is
open until dusk (No after dark swimming!).
EB&T is a quiet, friendly community. It is not a party palace.
There are various places up near Times Square on the north end of the island
that will work out much better for you if you are looking for a place to party.
If you try that at EB&T, you will attract the attention of your neighbors,
who will call the management/caretaker, and you will be "asked" to leave, with
no refund of the money that you have paid (we've never had this happen, and
certainly hope that we never will).
Another great week at EB&T
My husband and I frequently stay at EB&T. We like it, because it is at the quiet end of the beach (not near Times Square or the public beach access), but you can walk to a 7-11, CVS, Pinchers and a small plaza with an ice cream shop, a few restaurants/bars, shops and a little marina. You can take the trolley or drive down to the other end, but the trolley does not run late at night. We normally stay in a different unit, but it was unavailable so we picked this one instead.We were so glad we did. It was a great choice. As with all units at EB&T, the units is a one bedroom/studio, but this one felt nice and roomy for two people. They have just the right amount of nice quality furniture to make it comfy without feeling crowded. I loved the chair in the living room with the foot stool. I also liked having a full size sofa and a table with four chairs rather than small scale furniture like some have. The small cabinet with countertop was a nice touch for the coffee pot and toaster. The decor is nice and neutral. They had everything we wanted and needed for the week. The air conditioning worked great, but we really liked having the two ceiling fans to circulate the air throughout the condo. The view from inside the condo and the balcony is a show stopper. We just loved it. We also liked how the sun was somewhat blocked during the hottest part of the day, because of the way the unit/balcony is situated. You have a great view of the sunsets. This condo is a keeper and we will definitely rent it again. Kirby was very responsive and easy to rent off of. We really didn't feel like anything else was needed, but if I had to come up with a wish list, I would include a lighted makeup mirror for the desk and beach towels I understand why beach towels are not provided, but with luggage weight limits, we didn't want to weigh our bags down with beach towels. Another idea that you may want to consider that we have seen in other condos is a take it/leave it tote, pantry, etc.It is an area where travelers can leave laundry soap, fabric softener, shampoo, shaving cream, lotion, aloe, coffee, spices, bottled water, whatever they don't use and is not perishable rather than throwing it away. When you fly it is hard to bring everything or take it home once you buy it and it seems wasteful to throw it all away. Again everything was great. We loved it. We hope to be back real soon.

If, however, you are the type of person that wants a great place to stay and
enjoy all that southern Florida has to offer, without getting rowdy, we think
that you will have a wonderful time here.
