You Have Found FloridaBeachSunset!
It's all about the view! The view from our vacation home (yes, we are the actual owners and not a management company) can't be beat! You have direct views of the Gulf and the beach from every single window, which is going to give you memories of your time in Fort Myers Beach that you will talk about forever.
Our non-smoking corner unit condo is perfectly located to show you beautiful sunsets year around. And, being on the eleventh floor gives you a bird's eye view that you just can't get from the lower floors.
Our home has been professionally decorated with a tropical theme, and the use of large wall mirrors brings the tranquil gulf views into all areas of the home. To release your inner chef, the updated kitchen is fully-equipped with new appliances (including a dishwasher!). Our home accommodates 2-4 people on the king-sized bed and the queen-sized sleeper sofa (which is the most comfortable sleeper sofa we've ever seen). There is a 40 inch flat screen TV in the main room with an exquisite 1080p high definition signal (this is an upgrade above what most of the units in our complex have), and a 26 inch flat screen TV in the bedroom. There is a sliding door that you can close between the bedroom and the main room for privacy, if needed. All linens are provided except for beach towels.
We realize that sometimes you have to be 'in touch', even on vacation. For this reason, we have high speed internet/WiFi in our home free for you to use. The condo complex also has WiFi available down in the lobby area, but most of the condos don't have it 'in the home'. Ours does!
The open air balcony/lanai invites you to relax as you watch the dolphins, many coastal birds, or fantastic sunsets or just listen to the rhythm of the waves. We are located on the tranquil South end of Fort Myers Beach on the World's Safest Beach; shallow waters with no undertow makes it great for swimming as well as shelling.
Enjoy the 10 acres of beautiful tropically landscaped common area which provides 4 clay tennis courts, a large climate controlled heated pool, shuffle board, gas grills, as well as many sunning areas with lounge chairs; there is still room for kite flying on those ocean breezy days. Laundry is also provided on site for your convenience.
If you want to eat out, there are many great places to dine right across the street or within a short walking distance. Other things very close include a bank, boutique and gift shops, a large drug store with many grocery staple items, post office, marina with boat rentals, an ice cream shop and more. An 18 hole public golf course is only a block away, and there is a dinner movie theater just a few blocks away. The island trolley can be caught across the street to take you to the North end to 'the action' of Time Square or Bowditch Park for only a small charge. The same trolley also goes south to Lovers Key State Park and Bonita Springs. Fort Myers Beach is centrally located, only minutes to Naples and Marco Island to the South and Sanibel and Captiva to the North.
WE KEEP OUR AVAILABILITY CALENDAR EXTREMELY UP TO DATE. PLEASE CHECK IT BEFORE SENDING A QUOTE REQUEST. THANKS!
Our condo is very clean and comfortable with the home-away-from-home feel. We have a professional onsite caretaker, so you can have a worry free, relaxing vacation.

Give us a try and you will fall in love with our home!

About Kirby and Mariya Vandivort
We are a midwestern couple that normally enjoy the flat cornfields of Illinois, but we love to get away when we can. We personally manage our vacation home and look forward to sharing it with you!
Kirby and Mariya Vandivort purchased this Condo in 2011
Why Kirby and Mariya Vandivort chose South Island
We researched a million (slight exaggeration) different places, and Fort Myers Beach is where we wanted to be. It's warm enough on The Beach to enjoy winter here, but the cool breezes off the Gulf make summer extremely enjoyable as well. And, the other seasons (spring and autumn) are great, too, because the weather is excellent and there aren't any crowds.
What makes this Condo unique
The views here are absolutely stunning (just check out our reviews and see what most people comment on). We looked at a bunch of different properties (no exaggeration) and this one won... because of the view. Location, location, location. We are up high enough, on the 11th floor, that we can see beautiful sunsets, and the wide side of the balcony/lanai on our condo faces northwest, right towards the widest beach on the island. (Another perk of being on the 11th floor is that bugs seldom get up that high) The end of the balcony faces southwest, so we get to see beautiful sunsets regardless of what time of year it is. Also, as you can see on the map, our condo is on the southern end of the island, which is definitely the 'quieter' end. We really like this, and it is just one of the things that makes us want to go back again and again and again.

Super view from a well-maintained condo on a fabulous beach.
Had a wonderful, relaxing 2 weeks. The apartment was well equipped and comfortable. The experience was aided by perfect weather and handy instructions for all items in the condo. The place was exactly as advertised and I recommend it for anyone wanting a quiet, relaxing stay on a beautiful beach. The 11th floor deck was a great place to be up with the pelicans, the ospreys and I even got to see a Magnificent Frigate bird glide by the building.
Great view! Great location! Great Owner!
We will be back in February! Thanks Kirby!
Awesome view and great owners
My wife and I love it here. We will be back next year!
The condo had all the amenities and was just perfect for my wife and I. The view is exquisite.
This our first visit to Fort Myers Beach. We loved it so much that we booked the same condo for a week in October. It was perfect to be overlooking the beautiful water, and be just a short uber ride from the hip Times Square area. Also, having restaurants a great coffee shop--Truly Scrumptious--CVS, an urgent care and a cinema all within easy walking distance was great. This was a little bit of paradise!
Loved the view and the condo.
Well equipped and comfortable.
Highly recommend and would stay here again. Excellent communication from owner.
A week of a perfect beach and sunset dinner shows.
What a great vacation! First of all the email provided by the owner was a huge assets. It provided step by step instructions on entry codes, WiFi and navigation throughout the resort. The email also provided a link to the local area which was extremely helpful and we essentially knew our way around the area prior to arriving. Upon our arrival to the condo, we were impressed by the easy access door code and welcomed by the video screen providing us with additional info such as local weather and ....The owner also provided a guest book listing all local resturants and instructions on our responsibilities during our stay. We had plenty of linens and the view was amazing . We spent many evenings enjoying the great sunsets and relaxing in the comfortable patio furniture provided. Although we had our own beach accessories, the condo had some basic essentials for the beach (chairs, floats, etc.) if needed. Comparing this vacation to some of our other vacations, this is one of the best for several reason, easy access to the owner & condo, clear instructions, helpful information and most of all no surprises, the condo and view we exactly as described by the email and website. WE WILL DEFINITELY RETURN AND RECOMMEND THIS CONDO TO OTHERS!
The only complaint is not on the condo but the area; PARKING! Very little number of spaces at all the public beach accesses and parks, including Sanibel Island . Use the trolley as much as you can, very easy and cheap.
Oh! the ospreys were cool as heck also!!
