Independent Living Reviews for The Summit of Fort Myers

Grand Villa of Fort Myers is excellent; I really like the community. It would be my choice if I have to move somewhere. It's only independent living. They have different sized apartments and the staff was excellent. During the tour, I ran into a couple that I know, and they said they like it there very much. Thomas Watson was the one who showed us around, and he was very nice, and very thorough with his explanation of everything. He told us all about the community cost, the one-time cost, and other costs if you want community things, covered parking, and so on. If you want a room on the ground floor they have a waiting list to get in. In terms of dining, they allow people to come in any time instead of having fixed meals. They have a little post office where besides getting your mail they have a separate little area where you can purchase things and send them out. It was very nice. We spoke with some of the people who have been living for a while there too and they like it very much.

I'm a resident here at Grand Villa of Fort Myers for 14 years now. I love it and I'm very happy here. The people are very nice, the workers are very nice, and so is the office. I have no complaints. They have lots of activities going on, but I am unable to attend for the simple reason I'm too old. I'm 96 and I can't do the things that can be done. Nevertheless, there is a million things that can be done. Every day there is some activity, but sadly, I'm now incapacitated, but I do go to ones that I can. Some of the food is good and some is not as good as it used to be. However, they're working on it, and that's the main thing here. They try very hard to make us happy. I'm quite contented here. The people that live and the people who work here are very nice to all of us. I have no regrets that I'm here. They all treat us well and whoever is here and lives here is very congenial. We get along with everybody.

I'm very happy here at Grand Villa of Fort Myers. I'm very pleased. I have no complaints. The staff would come in once a week, and they would change the bedding. We have a washer-and-dryer in our unit. I'm also very happy with the food. There is a set time, which is enough time so that you don't feel like you're logged in. They give you plenty of time to get down there for lunch or dinner. Food variety is good. Also there is swimming, Bible study, card games, and dancing. It is affordable and I'm very pleased here.

After selling my condo I came to Grand Villa. I had been talking to Kelly for 6 months "The Best thing I ever did was when I moved in!" I love the staff and all the friends I have made. Lots of activities too! And the food is good.

I visited Grand Villa of Fort Myers twice. The manager is very kind and friendly, and the place is beyond beautiful. They've taken a former condo building and put $6M into renovating it. It was just fabulous, and the rooms were huge in comparison to the others. The size, beauty, and amenities are all just very charming and well done. They have a beautiful pool area, a small exercise room with some equipment, and a theater room. Everyone seemed friendly, they have card playing, happy hours, and a cute general store in case you suddenly run out of toothpaste or something. They have a cute, little café when you enter the building, and you can have free coffee, tea, or cookies.

Grand Villa of Fort Myers is excellent. They have a 2-bedroom, 2-bath, and they have a 2-bedroom, 2-bath deluxe apartment, which has a little bit more floor space and is ultimately what we decided on. It has a washer and dryer, a built-in microwave, dishwasher, and refrigerator. The food is excellent and their restaurant is upscale. The waiters and waitresses all wear white shirt and black pants. They have white linens, tablecloths, and when they come to your table they automatically bring you a glass of water. It has all the amenities, including maid service. They make up the beds and take out the trash. It has a courtyard with an Olympic-sized heated pool and a movie theater. The facility itself is nice. It's four stories and it's in a very nice, residential neighborhood.

I toured the Grand Villa, and I liked the location a lot. It was nice and offered a lot of things. The rooms were very nice. I saw the dining area, and the person who gave me the tour was adequate. I recalled sitting in the lobby, and we had to wait awhile because there was some confusion at the reception desk. People were complaining, which was a big turnoff for me.

Grand Villa is really big, scattered, and would mean a lot of walking for me. The rooms were comparable, but more expensive than other facilities. I felt that I needed to dress up more there. They have a smaller pool.

Our visit at Myerlee Manor (Grand Villa) was wonderful and it would have been like living in a fancy hotel. They have beautiful apartments and facilities. We ate in the dining room and ordered from a menu. The staff is very nice. There were about 75% women and only 25% couples, and they were not as old as I would have thought. There's a courtyard surrounding the swimming pool. It was nicely placed with tables and chairs.

Grand Villa of Fort Myers is doing a lot of renovation, and they have plans which look like they're going to be very good once they're implemented. The coordinator is very good at what he's doing, and we're impressed. We noticed that they have a musical event, and the location is very convenient.

My mom just moved in this weekend at Grand Villa. It is very clean and maintained. The staff is friendly, educated, very caring, and nurturing. There are lots of groups of people together talking and playing games. They have many activities, like card games, billiards, and trivia games. The dining room is phenomenal and has an atrium, which is gorgeous. You can sit out in the sun and eat and look over the pool. They have much bigger units and are updating a lot of things. They have rehab going on, which is really good. The laundry facility was inside of the apartment, which had a full kitchen.

Grand Villa of Fort Myers is marvelous and wonderful. Everybody's pleasant, and it's just a great place to be. Our room is wonderful and very spacious. I like everything about it, and I would recommend it to anyone. It's the best. I have a washer and dryer, and that's what sold me on this.

The Grand Villas is like a 5-star, but they only had independent living. The carpeting was beautiful, it was in a good location, and it was really nice. They had a pool, theater, and a restaurant. The people were very friendly and very nice.

It feels as good as being in our house. Without the work. The food is great. We are centrally located. Great amenities to use whenever you want. Always clean. If don't have a car transportation is available. You can stay indoors and still get a great walk in everyday. It is a safe environment. We love it here.

I live in Myerlee Manor. I have been here for almost four years. When I walked in here, I fell in love with the place. This is home. The lobby is all different shades of blue and gold and has a six-foot-tall chandelier. You can look to the pool in the middle of it. The condominium is a square. Everything is in this building, like a beauty shop. They have two doctors that come here to meet people. If you need them, you can sign up downstairs, and they will come to your place. They provide two meals a day.

I've been here at Myerlee Manor for 16 years now. I own a condominium here. I have a two-bedroom-two-bath and I'm very satisfied with it. It is very convenient. The facility is very well run. They have everything going for a retired person. They have a library, a dining room, and a barber shop. Also they have 24-hour security. For activities, we have entertainment, happy hour, celebration night, etc. We also have transportation to the store and to the doctor's office. I have an option to buy meals or not to buy meals.
