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 South Island
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.

Just what we needed!
We absolutely loved our week in this condo. The online photos do not capture the beautiful views from the lanai and master bedroom. The condo is on a very quiet (even during spring break!), family-friendly, white sand beach. Grocery shopping is convenient. We chose to eat at the condo and spend our days on the beach and at the nearby tennis courts. After one week, we are sad to leave but feel totally refreshed.
Newly redone, clean, well stocked kitchen, in unit washer/dryer
Loved the view. Loved the apartment.
The condo was beautiful and had everything we needed.
Loved the condo and everyone in the building was friendly and more than happy to give recommendations for good food and things to see and do. Only issue we had was the traffic to get to grocery store and town square. We did take the trolley one evening and though it took a while we did have a great meal on the beach and enjoyed the atmosphere of Times Square. Trip home on the trolley was a breeze. Enjoyed watching the birds in the morning and the sunsets in the evening and loved collecting shells on the beach. Took a long walk through Lovers Keys and a free tram ride to through the park.
Perfect Vacation Condo......
Beautiful condo with a fabulous ocean view. This condo is totally prepared with many amenities, especially in the kitchen. If you plan to do your own cooking, this condo has everything you need. It was very clean and secure and the people in the area were very friendly . Great beach to just sit & enjoy or take long walks. Our absolute favorite......the fantastic sunsets ....as we relaxed on the lovely lanai. A big thank you to Shelley Sue, owner, who was available if you had any questions. We had the pleasure of meeting her......she was very welcoming and cares about her renters. After 20 years of coming to Bonita area, we would recommend this condo very highly. Thanks again, Shelley Sue, we hope to come back again.
