South Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Our Gulf-front unit is directly on the Gulf of Mexico, with magnificent sunsets. Our recently renovated two bedroom cottage decorated condo is sparkling clean, bright, and comfortable. It’s a home, not a hotel room. Our previous guests all rave about the cleanliness and amenities provided.

Everything you need is waiting for you, just add your groceries and summer clothes. A full size washer and dryer are in the unit, and a gas grill is on the beach, ready for a sunset BBQ.

The Gulfside heated pool was just recently retiled and resurfaced and is very resortlike.

The pool area has a very tropical setting with beautiful Gulf breezes and Gulf views.

Restaurants and shopping are located within a five minute walk. A golf course is across the street. Renting a car is not always necessary, a trolley will take you the full length of the island for additional shopping, supermarket, restaurants, and “Times Square”, our small Key West like downtown area. Boat rentals are available at nearby Fish Tale Marina.

Our condo is located on the southern “quiet” end of the island. We are located directly on what is called the double beach. We have a beautiful Critical Wildlife Area/ bird sanctuary between us and the Gulf of Mexico, called Estero Beach Lagoon. This area has recently been named as one of the top 100 best birding areas in North America. Here you will see a variety of birds on a daily basis, including Heron, Egret,Pelicans, Roseate Spoonbills, Eagle, and many other shorebirds. The main beach is a short beach walk around, or across to the sandbar.

Eden House is a small friendly low rise building with only 35 units. Enjoy the inviting beachside heated pool, our warm, year round temperatures, Gulf Breezes, seven miles of white sandy beaches, and an unobstructed view of the Gulf from inside the condo. We await your visit.

About Shelley Sue Williams

We are originally from Long Island, New York. twelve years ago we picked Fort Myers Beach as a vacation destination and fell in love with the island.

We loved it so much we moved down here full time!

What we love about Fort Myers Beach is #1, the weather, and

#2, the feel of living on a Caribbean island, with all of the ammenities just a few minutes away.

Living on Fort Myers Beach allows us the ability to be active outdoors all year round. We enjoy playing tennis, kayaking, fishing, boating,long walks on the beach, biking, and more.

We love the proximity to all of the great local restaurants, state parks, and cultural activities too.

Shelley Sue Williams purchased this condo in 2002

Why Shelley Sue Williams chose Fort Myers Beach

We actually bought our condo to use for our home, not for a rental. After 8 years, we decided to purchase a 3 bedroom condo and put this condo into the rental program in Dec. 2008.

This location, at the South end of Fort Myers Beach, is known as the 'quiet end of the island.'

It is close to shopping, restaurants, golf, boat rentals, a branch of the post office and has

easy access on and off the beach through Bonita Springs.

It is also only 2 miles from Lovers Key State Park, one of the top 10 beaches in the US.

What makes this condo unique

The location of this condo on Estero Beach Lagoon is superb!

The birdwatching is unparalleled in this area. On a daily basis you can see a large variety of birds including Osprey, Egret, Heron, Roseate Spoonbills, Pelicans, and many other shore birds. We have a resident Eagle that has been recently spotted fishing for dinner.

The pool at Eden House was resurfaced and retiled in May, 2009, giving it a brand new appearance. New comfort height pool furniture was purchased in January, 2010.

The pool is Gulfside and has gorgeous views of palm trees swaying in the breeze and the Gulf in the background. There is always a refreshing Gulf breeze.

A Peaceful Gem

  • 5 of 5

Peace, quiet and comfort. We found all of these in this little gem of a property. Could not ask for more in either accommodation or location. Shelley Sue has every need covered. We will certainly return.

Great condo and location.

  • 4 of 5

The condo was very nice! Everything we needed. Plenty of space for our 11 and 13 year old boys. Great location. Quiet end of the island. Close enough to everything. Only complaint was water clarity in the area. We went to several other beaches nearby with much better water clarity. Still had a great time and caught fish too.

Great Host and Property

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The condo and facility was very nice and pool area was clean and had a kitchen area off it that you could keep your drinks. Beach area had lots of shells which we ended up only going out directly behind condo once. We ended up going to other areas for beach time.

Our best VRBO experience yet!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was exactly as pictured & described. It was super clean & well stocked. We felt like we were at home. The area has so many things to do. You will never get bored. We spent several days shopping & exploring & several on the beach. Both our kids 10 & 17 were fully entertained. I don't know if we lucked up on the shells or if what we found was normal but we found 119 sand dollars in 1 day! We also found a sting ray & a horse shoe crab. I would recommend this condo to every single person I could. It is the perfect place to make some memories.

Car: not necessary

Fabulous birdwatching directly in front of the condo on Estero Beach Lagoon, one of the top 100 birding sites in North America. Estero Beach Lagoon is a Critical Wildlife area and home to dozens of species of birds, and

nesting Loggerhead turtles.
