Why Bill Havertape chose South Island
We have been visiting Carlos Pointe since 2005, and have traveled to several other places in Florida on our many visits. Carlos Pointe is our favorite place to stay. In 2009, we made the decision to purchase a unit at Carlos Pointe Beach Club. Then, in 2010, our dreams became realized. We enjoy shelling, fishing, walking the beach, watching the pelicans, dolphins, manatees, and the sunsets.
What makes this Condo unique
As a bonus for nature lovers, for a few months each spring and summer, our beach becomes an extension of the Little Estero Island Critical Wildlife Area. There are 18 active Critical Wildlife Areas in all of Florida. Our beach serves as the southern border of Little Estero CWA, the only Critical Wildlife Area located in Lee County. Roger Tory Peterson, famed ornithologist and author of the 'First Modern Field Guide To Birding' visited Little Estero Island and declared it 'possibly the best place in the world to photograph shorebirds'. During the spring and summer months, our beach becomes prime nesting territory for sea turtles and a few of the estimated 150 species of birds that visit our island annually. We consider it a great privilege to serve as host for these animals during nesting season. While they raise their young each summer, we'll reserve some of our huge beach as a sanctuary. This provides outstanding observation opportunities right outside our back door. During this period, we allow the native beach vegetation to regrow to provide cover. Some of our beach does get restricted from human activity during this period. Don't worry though, the birds and turtles are very willing to compromise on beach space. So, you will still have plenty of beach to use! As soon as the baby birds are grown and done nesting, we'll remove the restricted areas and resume grooming operations. So, if you want to enjoy the birds, it's best to book between April and August!

This was our first VRBO and Bill was great to work with! He was so patient with all of my questions and very helpful with navigating the island and even set us up with Capt. Phil to go out on a boat! His condo we very clean and spacious for our family of 6! We can’t wait to go back! Thank you for a great experience Sir! See ya’ soon!
We had a great stay with great weather. The condo had everything that we needed and we were very comfortable.
Love this place!
Best of the best condo in the perfect location. If you like white sandy beaches and spectacular views this is the perfect spot. The owners of this condo are a pleasure to do business with and the unit is very comfortable. Feels like home! We are repeat renters looking forward to our next week at Carlos Pointe hopefully sometime in October.
Everything was exactly as advertised and we enjoyed everything about this property. We would definitely stay again in future trips.
The property and the condo were clean and well kept. Huge peaceful beach.
Very enjoyable all the way 'round. Tasteful decor. Appreciated the extras like chairs and beach toys. The screened lanai with table and extra chairs served us well. New appliances were nice as we cooked all our meals.
Very nice place . You won’t be disappointed Tom M
