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).
The Perfect Gulf of Mexico Condo
This condo faces the most interesting scenes on the Island. Because of the trees and small overflow pond, many birds are attracted to this area. The beach and pool are great. We saw dolphins close to shore many times.
Our favorite place was the balcony for coffee hour & late afternoon views. We noted that we were in the shade most of the day here as we experienced temperatures in the 90's our entire 4 weeks. It was also good for viewing the watercraft and jets beginning their descent, & for taking photos of sunrises, sunsets, & full moon over the water.
The entire property is clean & well manicured and the laundry facilities were adequate. We were impressed.
The condo was easy to live in. Everything we needed was there. The bed slept great & everything worked. It is tastefully furnished as pictured. The TV's work good and the dividing curtain muted sound from the other side.
We had a private tour of The Mound House, enjoyed Edison lab, & excellent shopping in easy to get-to Bonita Springs. We enjoyed Mucky Duck restaurant at the end of Captiva Island & Chinese Buffet on 41, but Rib City was our favorite. We worshiped at Beach United Methodist Church & were warmly received. We were overwhelmed at the huge Public Library and it's classroom-sized elevator & able to check out some good reading.
This was a perfect place to celebrate our 60th wedding anniversary. We had a few medical problems but were well taken care of by a small near-by clinic & some Doctors in Bonita Springs. The staff at Publix were more than helpful, and we noted all on the Island to be very friendly. We even found a new friend from our hometown of Owosso, Michigan.

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.
