Our location can't be beat as it's directly on the beach yet convenient to the shopping and restaurants located just across the street! The condo / hotel next door (Pointe Estero) rents for well over $400 a night during season. We are true ocean / beach (Gulf of Mexico) front, NO sandbar located in front of our building!

Home away from home awaits you at our spacious, immaculately clean, renovated 2 bedroom / 2 bath Gulf Front condo. Our condo is a spacious, bright, clean, fully equipped, located in a well maintained beach front (we are directly on the beach) condo community located on the more desirable, less congested south side of Fort Myers Beach.

We are DIRECTLY ON THE BEACH with just a few short steps from our condo door to the sandy white sugar like beach, as well as the large heated swimming pool. Our condo is fully equipped with high end luxurious bed linens, soft thick bathing towels, beach towels, cooler, kitchen supplies as well as a full sized washer and dryer inside of our unit.

New high end wood and tile floors (completely carpet free condo) & attractive high end furniture throughout. Our condo is not a typical 'worn out' rental. We have been told by many people who have rented at various Fort Myers Beach locations for 20 years or more that we have the most comfortable beds of any vacation rental property on the beach! King bed in master, queen in guest room and brand new queen pull out sofa bed in large great room. The master has its own dedicated bathroom. A second separate bathroom for your children or guests!

Many extras in our condo including our library of family videos, books, DVDs as well as a variety of games, pool / beach toys for the entire family. 3 FLAT SCREEN TELEVISIONS including 50 inch flat screen in great room, all hooked up to cable television.

We have a portable play pen and portable high chair for our smallest guests.

Several great restaurants and shopping directly across the street and right next door. The Tiki bar & restaurant next store at the Wyndam Garden is delightful, located directly on the beach and is open to the public. Jet ski rental including organized dolphin tours as well as cabana rentals directly in front of our building.

We are just a tad over 2 miles to one of the top 10 beaches in the USA - Lover's Key state park. Publix grocery shopping under 2 miles north from our condo. Bike rentals, scooter rentals, public library, miniature golf, churches super close to our condo and we are just 18 miles North of NAPLES, FL - great side trip during your stay! Convenient also to Sanibel Island.

50 cent trolley with trolley stop in front of our condo combined with super convenient location allows families to vacation easily without the expense of a car or allow older children some independence during your stay.

Best value on the beach for such a spacious high end condo for it's spacious size and for being in the most desired beach front location. Our condo community is also well known for being one of the very nicest, well maintained, upscale buildings on Fort Myers Beach.

For your convenience : Covered assigned parking- no fighting over a spot in our building for those who choose to rent or bring their vehicle! Several building elevators, very secure building with high tech 24 hour surveillance.

About Michele Demisay

The first 18 years of my life were spent in Cleveland, Ohio where Lake Erie was my best opportunity to enjoy sand and water. I yearned for the magnificent views and smells of the magnificent Ocean / Gulf. My additional strong desire to be out of the cold and snow, led our family to purchase this wonderful spacious vacation condo in 2005. In addition to owning and personally managing this outstanding beach front condo property, I am also a licensed Florida realtor. Please let me know should you be in the market to purchase your own vacation home, secondary home or investment property. I would be happy to personally show you all of the great things to see and do in our area as well as show you a variety of listings that meet your personal criteria for your own future South West Florida home! In addition, if my own vacation rental homes are not available for your desired dates of 90 days or more, I will be happy to search the realtor listings on your behalf to find you another suitable vacation rental property. Please let me know if I can help!

Michele Demisay purchased this Condo in 2005

Why Michele Demisay chose South Island

We have renovated each section of this condo to keep in modern, upscale, and in a condition where people (including ourselves) feel as though they are at a 5 star resort!

      • The king bed is extremely comfortable (pillow top)....you will never want to go home! I have had many renters tell me that they have looked at the mattress and plan on buying the same bed for their homes... I don't think there is anything worse then discovering your vacation rental has an old beat up bed! You won't find a more comfortable bed on the beach!! The queen bed is also newer, very comfortable as well as a very nice queen sized sleeper sofa in the great room, and a portable play pen / crib for our smallest guests. Each bedroom equipped with a ceiling fan.

                                                                  My family and I had a great holiday on Fort Myres Beach and this condo made it even better. It is spacious and furnished to a very high standard.The owner has thought of every detail to make your stay feel special. We think it is on the best part of the beach and the pool is a great size. When we return to Fort Myres Beach we are hoping this condo will be available because we do not want to stay any where else.

                                                                  First Rate Condo on the Beach

                                                                  Thank you so much for taking the time to post your review.

We will certainly look forward to accommodating you and your family the next time your travels bring you back to Fort Myers Beach! Please do keep in touch! Michele

                                                                  We loved the condo in Fort Myers Beach!

                                                                  Sharlene and Victor G.fort wayne indiana

                                                                  The condo we rented in Fort Myers Beach was very spacious and immaculate. It had everything we could need for our stay on the beach. The view of the beach from our window was beautiful. The beach itself was soft and sandy and HUGE! We got to enjoy dolphins every day. Michelle was quick to respond to our questions. She has the condo decorated beautifully. We hope to return soon.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Thank you so much for taking the time to post your wonderful review of your experience at our condo and with working with me to assure that you had the very best of vacations! I could not agree with you more on that breathtaking view of the Gulf of Mexico and it's white sanded beach right from our Gulf Front Condo! It certainly never gets old to watch the Dolphin families frolicking in front of our building each day. I am so happy that you were able to enjoy that daily experience! Thank you again for such a lovely post. We will certainly look forward to you and your family enjoying our beach front condo the next time your travels bring you back to Fort Myers Beach! Thanks again and please do keep in touch! Michele

                                                                  Best place we have ever stayed on Fort Myers Beach

                                                                  We have visited Fort Myers Beach every year for the past 12 years and by far this condominium was the best of all of the vacation rental accommodations we have ever enjoyed. The location on the beach along with the gorgeous condo cannot be beat. The views of the beach from this condo were incredible and the property itself was so nicely updated, roomy, cheerful and clean. We also enjoyed the large, sunny, beach front heated pool aa it is quite a large size of a pool for being direct on the beach. The Internet in the condo was fast and the restaurant next door (Pinchers) has always been one of our favorites on the beach. We grilled out one night at sunset using the community grill. Michele was an absolutely amazing host, very easy communicationsteps with her. Thank you for a wonderful stay! We will return to your condo next year.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Thank you so much Tammy and family for sharing your 12 plus years of personal experience in renting beach front condos on Fort Myers Beach. I am beyond happy and flattered to read that you have picked my beach front vacation condo to be your best vacation rental experience yet, means so much :)

                                                                  I smile when you or anyone mentions Pinchers restaurant located right next door to our condo as it is always such a fun and delicious dining experience. I especially enjoy the large (he must be nearly 4 foot tall) giant egret of some type who has been wandering in and out of that restaurant charming diners into parting with their french fries for at least 3 years now. In fact, I have taken a few photos of that gorgeous bird and will post a few under my condo's photos section as soon as I am done posting my response to your review). Always a good time at Pincher's and always a relaxing time lounging, listening to music and reading books on the beach just a few steps from our condo. Thank you again for posting your comments and for re-booking already for 2018!

                                                                  Fantastic Vacation!

                                                                  Jim W.

                                                                  My family and I had an outstanding vacation at Michele's beautiful beachfront condo. This particular unit has everything that you need and more. The two bedrooms and two bathrooms were a perfect arrangement for our family of four. The view from the unit is postcard worthy. Michele is on top of everything and she is just a text or phone call away. Can't wait to visit again...

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Thank you so much for posting your wonderful comments. We promise to always stay on top of everything as you stated as it is so important for us that all of our renters have the most wonderful vacation experience they deserve.

                                                                  We love the postcard picture worthy view from our condo of that gorgeous beach as well. The sunsets are truly the best!

                                                                  Thank you again for choosing our condo for your stay. We will certainly look forward to accommodating you the next time you return to Fort Myers Beach! Please do keep in touch! Michele

                                                                  Michael E.Chicago

                                                                  Gorgeous condo, directly on the beach. The condo had amazing views of the water and it was very convenient to the best restaurants and area shops. We especially loved this Condos South Island location as it allowed for quick access with very little traffic on and off the island. We drove down to Nappes for a day which was easy to do from this condos location. We noticed quite a bit more traffic congestion at the Islands second exit located on the North side of the Island . The traffic on that end was due to some part to road construction, however that side of the beach does appear to have much more congestion with both people and traffic. We appreciated this condos perfect location as a result. The owner of this condo was responsive in every way with quickly answering all of our questions providing area information and for providing us with a spotless, spacious condo just as advertised. The Internet was high speed and the cable televisiona had a great variety of channels for us to surf in the evenings. The condo had everything we needed including coffee, soaps, games, beach towels, beach chairs, coolers, hair dryers and more. We will definitely return and we have already recommended this condo to friends for their next vacation. Thank you for a great stay!

                                                                  Thank you so much for choosing our condo for your stay and for writing such a fully comprehensive review of your wonderful experience. We appreciate so much you taking the time to share your positive experience or our condo and working with me with others.

The drive down to Naples (roughly 18 miles) is so easy to do from our less congested, more direct South end of the beach. We will certainly look forward to your return trip back to our condo. Thank you again and please do keep in touch! Michele

We are located at the most desirable south side and most sought after section of Fort Myers Beach. We are SOUTH Fort Myers Beach which means very easy access on and off the Island. The North end is lovely, however traffic is rough and there is alot of road construction going on at that end right now. We are approximately 2 miles north of Lovers Key State Park. We are directly on the beach. I have many happy renters who come back each year... please see my reviews!! In addition, I am a licensed area Florida realtor!
