Why Bill Havertape chose South Island
We bought our first unit at Carlos Pointe in 2010. We had a chance to add to the portfolio in 2015. So, we added this unit.
What makes this Condo unique
As a bonus for nature lovers, for a few months each spring and summer, our beach becomes an extension of the Little Estero Island Critical Wildlife Area. There are 18 active Critical Wildlife Areas in all of Florida. Our beach serves as the southern border of Little Estero CWA, the only Critical Wildlife Area located in Lee County. Roger Tory Peterson, famed ornithologist and author of the 'First Modern Field Guide To Birding' visited Little Estero Island and declared it 'possibly the best place in the world to photograph shorebirds'. During the spring and summer months, our beach becomes prime nesting territory for sea turtles and a few of the estimated 150 species of birds that visit our island annually. We consider it a great privilege to serve as host for these animals during nesting season. While they raise their young each summer, we'll reserve some of our huge beach as a sanctuary. This provides outstanding observation opportunities right outside our back door. During this period, we allow the native beach vegetation to regrow to provide cover. Some of our beach does get restricted from human activity during this period. Don't worry though, the birds and turtles are very willing to compromise on beach space. So, you will still have plenty of beach to use! As soon as the baby birds are grown and done nesting, we'll remove the restricted areas and resume grooming operations. So, if you want to enjoy the birds, it's best to book between April and August!

Nice, quiet, clean condo located on the beach!
We enjoyed the location of this condo. It was close to shopping, restaurants and several other things to do. The condo was clean, supplied with everything you could possibly need including beach chairs and beach towels. The walk is about 5 or so minutes from the room. The owners were beyond nice and very easy to work with. If you are looking for a quiet, beach that isn't crowded this is for you.
Very nice, clean, great location for people who don’t need to be in Time Square. Short drive to grocery store, bars and restaurants. Beach right outside with a view from lanai. Pool was very well kept up with daily . Great time!!
Great location, private beach, everything you need for your stay at the beach.
Wonderful place to unwind
Carlos Point was a beautiful place to spend the week. The condo was well stocked and maintained. The resort is located away from the crowds and was very peaceful. The owners were easy to work with and I would recommend to anyone interested.
Great Location, Quiet and Very Comfortable
The location was great, the sunset views from the screened in patio were outstanding!!
The pool was below the condo and the beach was steps away from the pool
The owner "Bill" was easy to work with and very helpful.
The condo had all the comforts of home, including TV's and stocked kitchen.
We will be back in the spring if it's available.
The condo is well kept and very comfortable! Building is very quiet & clean.
Spectacular views from the lani! The beach was absolutely gorgeous....quiet no big crowds so it felt private. The water is very clear, perfect for snorkeling.We saw manatees, Dolphins, many varieties of birds, starfish, horseshoe crabs and so many seashells. A must see is Lovers Key State Park, Barefoot Beach and The Edison Ford homes and gardens. The owners are very easy to work with and gave some great suggestions on what to see & do. Already want to go back!
