South Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6 + 1 Toddler)

I live on Ft Myers Beach, I spent my morning on the beach, watched the Dolphins swimming just 30 feet from shore, two men with their rods catching fish, a dozen or so lady's shelling as others enjoyed a morning walk! The water is calm and beautiful!

Great Condo!

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely loved Dan's condo! We stayed there with our sons and my parents for a cousins wedding in Naples. It was so clean and decorated so nice! He even left ingredients for a spaghetti dinner - how thoughtful! The condo was so spacious that we all felt like we had our "own space." The pool was also awesome! The beach was just a short walk across the street. The only thing I thought could be improved is the mattress in the master bedroom could be replaced. It wasn't that comfortable. We will definitely be coming back to the Bella Lago! We never wanted to leave!

Owner's Response: I'm perplexed Charles about the comment on the MBR mattress because it is a Brand New mattress as of April 2016, just six months ago! And is a high quality mattress, this is the first complaint I have had about it but will certainly ask the next few guests what they thought of it. I know its a firm mattress and its impossible to have a mattress that suits all people, some like very firm, some not so firm and some soft as a pillow, sorry your experience was not "five star", Dan

Loved our stay at Dan's condo! Lots of space to unwind, fully equipped with all one may desire, close to the beach and shops, in a serene atmosphere. Dan was responsive when we contacted him which made our stay more enjoyable. Will surely be back!

Happy guest

  • 5 of 5

Dan, your condo was awesome and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. We look forward to the possibility of returning next year, sometime in early June. We used the outdoor grill almost every night. My only complaint is the grill could use some regular cleaning by the maintenance staff. We had a pretty good grease fire due to the build up of drippings from all the use that the grill receives throughout the year. Excellent vacation, thanks for everything.

Owner's Response: Thanks Mike for the kind review, as you know the Grille is provided by the association and upkeep is their responsibility, but since its provided as an ementity for owners and renters they expect that owners/renters clean it after each use, not a practical solution but how the association views the Grille use, thanks for coming, look forward to your return, Dan

A safe, quiet, new looking property and the condo itself is spacious and nicely furnished.

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved our stay at Bella lago and would stay again. This condo is fully stocked with everything you need to make meals, grill and entertain. Loved the large dining room table for eating together and how cozy and comfortable it was. Dan even went above and beyond and offered a large cooler, beach chairs, toys, umbrella, towels. Traveling with my two year old was made very easy. The condo was very sound proof too which made napping easy. The pool was clean and not crowded, the grill was accessible and most importantly the beach was a short walk away! So many wonderful memories were made here. Can't thank Dan enough!

Nice location, very spacious and well appointed.

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at Bella Lago was great despite the poor weather. The unit was clean, very spacious (three bedroom/two bath) and was furnished with everything we needed to cook meals in as often as we wished. The only thing better is to be right on the water. It's about a ten minute walk across the road to the beach which is level and great for walking. Publix grocery store is a short drive away. The traffic going into Ft. Myers Beach can be awful but, well, what's the rush?

Owner's Response: Yes Margo, I understand your disappointment with the weather this January, this is normally our dry season all the way thru June, it may dip into the 40’s at night and be a bit chilly but usually we have nice sunny days in January, this was the worst January I have experienced in my 11 years here in SW Florida! As to the walk to the beach here’s the differences, you can rent a spacious condo (1,750 sq ft) such as mine or rent a much smaller condo (under 1,000 sq ft) on beach side, to get a larger condo beach side it would be a penthouse at four times the cost of my condo! Thanks for coming Margo and I do hope you’ll return and give FMB another try :)

Perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Dan, your 3 bedroom condo was just what we needed. Everything was perfect except for the washing machine breaking down early in our stay; however you responded to me quickly and spent 3 hours in the condo trying to fix it. Unfortunately it still did not work and you felt you could not get a new one installed until the last day of our trip. But you called me the next day and had a new one delivered and installed that afternoon. I hope you know how much your attentiveness to our needs was very much appreciated. I have no doubt we will be visiting you again. I would recommend this condo to anyone. Great location. Great value. Caring owner.

Walk across the street and you're at the beach! And (10) minute walk up the road at the Holiday Inn (all are welcome) is the largest and best beach on the island with an awesome Tiki Bar/Restaurant on the beach with great live music (oldies/blues/country) during dinner hours and sunset, lots of fun! Many night life bars and restaurants, lots of fresh fish, all within ten minute walk.

Lovers Key Park is a 10 minute drive south of the Condo, great beach, amenities, playground for the kids, walking trails, beautiful landscape and wildlife!!

A 10 minute drive north to the top of the island is the fishing pier and lots of fun activities.

There is the awesome Ft Myers’ Beach Tram to get you to all the popular locations without having to drive your car, $0.50 for the ride, and leaves every 40 minutes, you can take your bikes and other sports items, this trolley is an easy, fun, and inexpensive way to get around on Fort Myers Beach, FL.
