Overview

South Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This two bedroom, two bath, beautifully decorated fourth level condominium is located on the quiet south end of Estero Island, also known as Fort Myers Beach. The wide screened lanai, which is accessible from the living room and the master bedroom, overlooks a mangrove preserve, the swimming pool, and has a great view of the magnificent sunsets on the Gulf.

Seven miles of pure white sand, on Florida's most beautiful and safest beach, is just steps away. All conveniences including shopping, restaurants, a four screen cinema, a medical center, two marinas and churches are within a five-minute walk. The beach trolley is 200 feet from your door. Park the car and relax. Its all right here.

Rent a pontoon boat for a day and explore the back bay. Dolphins often accompany you for long stretchs, frequently coming close enough to touch. Continue on toward the bridge and have lunch at one of the many dockside eateries. Hop on the trolley and go south to the Lovers Key recreation area or north to the Times Square downtown area. Experience wonderful fishing for a great variety of fish that can be caught right off the beach. Explore Carl Johnson State Park where you can rent a kayak or walk the trails to see many birds and Florida wildlife in a protected, natural enviornment. Take a ride south to the Everglades for a thrilling airboat ride. Fish literally jump over the boat as you are skimming over the water. Or simply walk 50 feet from our building to the canal and look for Charley, our resident alligator. He frequently suns himself in full sight.

This spacious unit is fully equipped with everything you will need for a truly memorable vacation. The modern split-floor plan offers complete privacy with a bedroom and bath on each end. All rooms, including the lanai, are equipped with ceiling fans. The ground level, under building parking is within a few steps of the secured lobby and elevator.

We supply many books, CD's, DVD's, puzzles and games for your enjoyment. The unit is also equipped with hi-speed broadband internet. We supply you with a key to our locker which contains anything you or your children may need for relaxation and fun at the beach including bocci ball and a cornhole game. We also provide a large wheeled beach cart to take your belongings to the waters edge. Just bring your clothing and your toothbrush. There are no disappointments here. One trip and you will long to return.

About The Owner

We live in snowy Northeast Ohio and escape to the beach twice a year. We enjoy sunning, walking the beach and relaxing watching the spectacular susets from our lanai.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1997

Why The Owner chose Fort Myers Beach

We love Fort Myers Beach. It is wide, loaded with shells and sand dollars, pure white and beautiful. All amenities including several excellent restaurants, 2 beach bars, a CVS, shopping, a marina, a 4 screen cinema and churches are within walking distance. Once you arrive, you need not start your car until you depart. A trolley is within 300' that will take you anywhere you need to go that is beyond walking distance.

What makes this condo unique

We provide you with many things not normally found in a rental such as golf clubs, a bocce ball game, a portable cornhole game and a cart to take things to the beach. We also have large DVD, CD and book offerings in the unit for your enjoyment.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to thank you for sharing your beautiful condo with us. You have thought of everything. I cannot believe that 2 weeks can go by so fast. I was impressed not only with your condo, but the cleanliness of the place. Your cleaning lady is the best!

Very Nice Owners - Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Chuck and Judy's condo for two weeks. First, I have to say, they are one of the nicest and most understanding owners I have ever dealt with. The condo is very nice, roomy, and well equipped. Their were only four of us, but it is roomy enough for a family of six without any problem. We didn't want for anything - they even have a fan we could use. It was very convenient having a washer and dryer in the condo. The complex is in a safe, quiet area, located at the south end of Ft Myers Beach. The pool was never crowded. The beach is literally across the street - not a far walk - and a great place to watch the beautiful sunsets. I enjoyed the nice long walks on the south end of the beach shelling - even saw a manatee and horseshoe crabs. Our family enjoyed doing a dolphin tour via jet skis with Adventure Water Sports (www.adventure-watersports.com). Our guide was Todd, and he was awesome. We also have a tradition of eating at the Bubble Room, which is located on Captiva Island. It is a very unique restaurant, and the desserts are huge and delicious. We truly enjoyed our stay, and would highly recommend renting this condo. Thank you, Chuck and Judy, for sharing your condo with us.

Had a great time once again, we settled into the condo and were very comfortable, a nice place to come back to after a hard day on the beach/shopping or just sight seeing. Weather was fantastic always had a cooling breeze. Hope to return in 2016

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent almost 4 weeks here had a great time, condo was clean had every thing we needed. Close by there were bars and restaurants all within easy walking distance, beach access across the road. However we preferred the beach around time square area more to see and things to do. Favourite eating/drinking places Nervous Nellies, close second Flippers at lovers key. Great shopping. Can't wait to return. Chuck, our stay was everything you said it would be.

Want to come again

  • 5 of 5

We spent two wonderful weeks here in September. Everything was perfect. We`ve been to Ft. Myers Beach before but have never had a so nice condo. We`ve felt at home because you`ve done a great job furnishing and decorating the condo. The beautiful beach is across the street with white sand for long walks.

Shopping and restaurants are near by. If you don`t want to take the car you can take the trolley. We surely want to come again

Wow! Loved it & great value

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks here in May with our two children. The condo is wonderful, clean and convenient to everything. We had a few days of rain and appreciated the extensive DVD library and board games. Many great places to eat are within walking distance. We rented a kayak at Carl Johnson State Park and petted the manatees! We had a wonderful time and will return. We would recommend this condo to anyone. It is beautiful and a great value.

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two memorable weeks here in the late fall. It was fabulous and this unit far exceeded our expectations. We have been coming to SW Florida for a number of years, but this was our first time on the south end of FMB. Everything you may want is within walking distance and so convenient. The beach is pure white and 500' wide! This condo is far and away the nicest that we have ever stayed in in Florida. Roomy, clean, comfortable, superbly equipped and a great value. We will most certainly return and would highly recommend it to anyone.
