Fun In The Sun

Fantastic house! Close to the beach and fun. We rode our bikes to Time Square everyday. The House had everything needed for a great vacation. We want to do it again next year.

Fun in the sun

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week here with my daughter and her family, including a toddler. The home was perfect for our needs. There was plenty of room for the four of us and toys/pool equipment/beach equipment/pack n play for the toddler. We split our time between the beach, which is an easy 5 minute walk, and the backyard pool and enjoyed both. The neighbors were pleasant and the neighborhood was quiet. A family of manatees visited the boat dock out back one day and we got to watch an Osprey family in a nest across the canal each day. We also found good local eateries and a handy grocery store. The home lives up to what was advertised in VRBO-we would be happy to return in the future.

The property was great. It looked just like the pictures, and there was no storm damage.

We stayed for a week in the middle of November. The house looked just like the pictures. The pool and outdoor space were very nice! Very comfortable beds, bedding, and lots of pillows. We took our 6 month old son, and used the pack and play that was provided, along w a ton of pool rafts and toys. They even had a stroller and beach wagon that we used to take him to the beach to watch a couple sunsets. The beach is right across the street, a super easy walk, and is the biggest beach with beautiful white sand! The house is also less than a 5 minute drive to Publix which was very convienient. We had such a good time, and would definitely recommend staying there!

Great choice for our family of 6

  • 5 of 5

Great location! (short walk across the street and 4 houses down from the resorts on the beach) The house was furnished with anything you might need for a beach vacation (garage had many beach chairs, several umbrellas, sand toys, small cooler, and a beach cart to carry it all). Many rental properties only have a few dishes, skillet, and saucepan. This kitchen has everything you might need (large array of cookware--including large stockpots for a seafood boil, blender and small appliances, serving dishes, etc). There is a gas grill next to the pool. We did not use the boat dock/lift, but it would be very handy for boaters. Nice size pool with screen enclosure, large dining table, as well as bar--plenty of room for everyone to eat inside or outside. The owners were very friendly and kept us well informed. We would happily stay here again!

Beautiful and relaxing holiday at this home from home

  • 5 of 5

What can we say...the pictures are an accurate reflection of this wonderful house.

The pool was beautiful, warm and welcoming, the house was really well laid out with a comfortable lounge for relaxing in the evening after a day at the beach (which is only a 5 minute walk or 2 minute drive :-) .

The kitchen has every utensil, serving dish and fancy glass you could wish for.

The owner Dana was a dream to deal with. ALWAYS responsive and pro-active in making sure everything was set to make it a beautiful holiday for our family.

We have no hesitation in recommending this property and hopefully the next time we are in FMB, we will come back to this house....home for a second stay.

About Dana Zuber

Well the story all began when my family moved from New Jersey to Florida back in 1980!

My whole family is still living here. Unfortunately I had to move back to N.J. after college- to work but My husband and I found this gem back in 2001. We loved the idea of coming down and spending time with my brothers - and their families and for our kids to know their cousins.Unfortunately due to our busy lives we can't get down to Florida more than a few times of year- so we love the idea of sharing our home with you! I have tried to make our home comfortable and easy for all- who arrive. I love to entertain so you will find a fully equipped kitchen with all the items you need to host a family gathering! I hope you enjoy our house as much as we do!

Dana Zuber purchased this house in 2001

Why Dana Zuber chose South Island

I loved the idea of having a private residence near the beach- without all the chaos the north end of the beach can bring at various times of the year. The canal waterway to open water is a quick one to the gulf( @15 minutes which is Really great-)

Important question to ask if you are renting a boat on the island..

The location of our beach and the actual beach itself- is beautiful and a tranquil wide open space( pictures are on my site).

I loved the location- walk to everything while still being private! Very Important-

What makes this house unique

Location - Location- Location-

Easy on and off the island in high season by traveling in and out of the south end of the island- ( highly recommend) vs traveling over Mantanzas Bridge-

During the off season- it is fine to travel either way please note.

The Beach where our home is located is Awesome! truly one of the prettiest beaches I have ever seen ( I have traveled all over the world- on business)

The home is situated on a quiet street but right in the center of a lot of activity -- which enables you to retreat to a calm haven after you have had your fill of all there is to do!!
