Why Craig Fernsler chose Fort Myers
I personally love this property in Lexington Country Club since there are so many things to do here. Whether it is within Lexington Country Club or somewhere in Southwest Florida. There are also so many community activities at Lexington Country Club. There have been at lease 6 renters over the years that went on to purchase in Lexington County Club because they also loved it so much.

We had a wonderful time. It’s absolutely gorgeous here!
We think a few new up dates would make it a 5 Star Vacation.
The condo is perfectly situated next to the pool, Tiki Bar and workout facility. It has a great view from the lanai where you can walk right out to a large pond. Lexington is beautifully landscaped gated community with a a great golf course available to guests. The condo is roomy and clean but could use some updates. The landlord is easy to work with and fairly accommodating.
Great location with lots to experience
This was our first time staying at Lexington Country Club. The community is extremely nice. It is well-manicured and very beautiful. We had a few issues, though. It was immediately obvious that our unit had been solely used as a rental. Upon arrival, we found that it had not been cleaned after the prior guests had left. Although the owner sent the housekeepers over immediately, we had to find a place to be for another few hours after just driving 20 hours to get there. Once in our condo, we found that the unit had only been surface cleaned and was in desperate need of a deep cleaning. The dishwasher was full of dishes, and the washer and dryer contained the linens from the beds. Drawers were off the track. We spent the next day wiping down the couch that had pieces of sucker stuck to the cushions, as well as other unidentified items. We took the comforters to the laundromat to be cleaned as they were filthy. Dog hair was under the beds, in the sliding door tracks, and on the porch. The extra bedroom smelled like the dog had an accident in the room somewhere. The handle was broken off both the refrigerator and the back screen door. The rugs and carpeting were all stained, and there were ants all over the kitchen counters. We cleaned the larger stains off of the carpeting, and bought spray for the ants. The owner did send a gift certificate for dinner for our troubles, which was very nice. But the reality is that this unit needs to be completely updated as everything is still original from 25 years ago. After we were done cleaning, the unit ended up being a great condo. It was directly across from the pool and the tiki bar which we used every day. There were plenty of lounges for everyone, even at the busiest times. There were daily exercise classes that we attended for free, and on Mondays the Tiki bar had live music. The bar was excellent. We were directly on the pond with a sidewalk, which was a great place to take a walk. The residents are very active and friendly. We would definitely go back to Lexington Country Club again.
This was an unfortunate event of circumstances, which lead to a bad first impression for this renter. There was a miscommunication from the prior renter as to when they were leaving their stay and when the cleaning lady was to arrive. Unfortunately, the condo was not cleaned when they arrived following their long journey. Once I knew what happened, the cleaning lady was there within the hour. I can understand that after a long drive, you are tired would like to just relax and enjoy yourself. Because of this situation with the cleaning person, she was unable relax when she arrived. This has never happened before and never will happen again. Everything is normally on a tight schedule and everything clean upon arrival. We have had multiple repeat renters and we have never had a problem and we have become friends. In fact, I have had six repeat renters over the years that loved it so much that they ended up purchasing a unit in Lexington. If anybody would like a reference from one of these renters, I can arrange a call with them. They are now full time residents and love it at Lexington. Our condo (as this person referenced) is in one of the best locations in Lexington as it is just one building away from the main pool, Tiki bar and fitness center. My wife and I take a lot of pride in our condo and we love it very much when we stay there. Our condo is not just a rental property. It is going to be, in the near future, a place where we retire from seasonally cold Philadelphia. I am also a Realtor and understand what is required and necessary for an extremely comfortable stay. If anybody has any further questions, please reach out to me. We look forward to having you stay in our home.

September at Lexington
My wife and I had a great time. The condo is in a beautiful setting that is convenient to beaches, restaurants and shopping. We played a lot of golf at very affordable rates this time of year. Lexington is a beautiful community with very friendly residents and staff. The pool and Tiki bar are exceptional.
