Condo, 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 6
My husband and I are original owners of the condo built in 2006. We live in a suburb of Chicago, IL and have been married for 44 years and have 2 children.
Donna purchased this Condo in 2006
Why Donna chose South Island
When my husband and I first came to Ft. Myers Beach, we immediately felt like we were on a tropical island with nature all around us. The relaxing atmosphere, the stunning Gulf of Mexico with beautiful calm, warm water and spectacular sunsets were just what we were looking for. We also loved there was so many things to see and do. Also, everyone was so friendly. While watching a stunning sunset one evening, we met a couple that had family from out of town. We were complete strangers and they offered sharing their wine and snacks with us while engaging in lively conversation.
What makes this Condo unique
Bella Lago on Fort Myers Beach is the perfect vacation destination for couples and families to create beautiful memories that will last forever. Sand, sun, surf, and world famous sunsets are steps away. The pool and grounds are gorgeous and have a wonderful tropical feel. We thought of everything when furnishing our vacation home to make sure your experience would be amazing. In the evening we enjoy sitting on the lanai watching the lighted fountain and just relaxing with a glass of wine.

I can't say enough....this was one of the best relaxing vacation
The secured covered parking as well as all the beach amenities was a bonus. Very convenient. Just an overall wonderful experience. I would highly recommend to family and friends as well be returning to the same property for my next Florida vacation.
My family and I had a great time at this property. It was a short walk to the beach and they had a wagon to make it convenient to carry things back and forth. The condo was equipped with all the toys, beach towels and umbrellas for the beach. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook. I also appreciated the blender and all of the small details that made this place feel like home. It was clean and comfortable and had more than enough space for my family.
What a great place to relax & enjoy Ft Myers Beach. Condo was perfect although a 10 minute walk to the beach. All amenities listed were excellent. The 3rd bedroom accommodated 2 small children and not the 15 year old boys in our family. I would love to stay here again!! The Fish House restaurant had fabulous crab legs.
Conveniently located, attractively and comfortably decorated
The property is conveniently located within easy walking distance to the pool and the beach. Perhaps the most convenient aspect is the equipment locker in the covered garage. The locker is literally packed with everything you need for a day at the beach: plenty of beach chairs, canopy, umbrellas, cooler, beach toys, and a wagon big enough to hold it all. This was the most extensive free setup we have ever found. The 3 bedrooms and 2 baths was perfect for grandma and grandpa, daughter and son-in-law, and 2 grandkids. Screened in porch was the ideal spot to unwind at the end of the day—and we did every night. The “pay it forward “ kitchen cabinets and fridge is another unique perk. Close to grocery store and several fine restaurants and bars are within 5 minute walk. If headed to the area in the future, we will definitely book this property.
We had such a great time and the condo is beautiful and immaculately clean! We were very impressed by the personal call from the condo owner to check in on us and make sure we were settling in well and had everything we needed. Easy private access to the beach across the street and shopping and restaurants nearby. Highly recommend you stay at this place!
very well kept and clean
the unit we stayed in was better than expected. everything was in excellent condition and well stocked with linens and utensils. the owner personally called me to see if everything was to my liking. with beach rights and location to the water it was very enjoyable. the pool and hot tub was as a favorite. would definitely stay there again.
The beautiful Gulf of Mexico greets you just a short walk across the street. The beach here is quieter, less crowded, and perfect for relaxing, watching dolphins swimming close to shore, taking a nap, or reading.
Also, within walking distance, there is the largest public beach perfect for people watching or water sports as you can rent jet skis, paddle boats and other water sport equipment here. There is a Pinchers's Restaurant and Bar with a huge, fabulous Tiki bar. In the evening, you can enjoy a cocktail, watch a spectacular sunset and listen to a live band. After the sun sets, have fun dancing the night away or just enjoy listening to a variety of music ranging from country, blues or oldies.
If you wish, you can enjoy exploring the island's popular places without having to drive using the fun island Trolly for $.50. They allow you to bring your bicycle and beach gear on the Trolly. The Trolly operates both north and south on the island. To the north there is Times Square with many restaurants and shops. To the south there is Lovers Key State park which has a wonderful beach, and you can rent kayaks here.
Enjoy strolling on the beach and if you enjoy shelling, some of the best shelling is on our beach. I have been told the shelling is better on our beach than in nearby Sanabel! Many people also enjoy fishing directly from wading in the Gulf to see what they can catch.
There are many wonderful restaurants serving seafood caught fresh from the Gulf of Mexico, many within a short walk or drive.
