South Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4)

Beautifully decorated and fully appointed 1 Bedroom condo located directly on the Gulf of Mexico and spectacular Fort Myers Beach. This seventh floor corner unit in Estero Beach and Tennis Club offers breathtaking views of both the Gulf and the Inter-coastal Waterway.

The unit has been totally updated and offers everything you need for the perfect vacation getaway including free wi-fi in the unit! From the balcony you can enjoy gentle ocean breezes, morning sunrises and evening sunsets. Enjoy watching dolphins from the window or the balcony!!!

On the complex grounds enjoy the serenity and beauty of the wildlife sanctuary where numerous species of birds frequent the natural flora and fauna. If you wish to just settle down with a good book and sit by the heated pool there is always that option as well as playing tennis on one of the four clay courts.

Come here once and you will want to come back to the '4C's' (Cleanest, Cutest, Convenient Condo) :)

The King size bed offers Kingsize pillows and comfortable pillowtop that will be a welcome snuggle after a full day of playing in the sun. There are plenty of extra pillows and blankets for you to make the 'nest' extra comfortable for your liking.

If you enjoy cooking during your holiday stay, the well equipped kitchen will allow testing of some new culinary delights. If you don't want to cook, there are an assortment of restaurants that are all walking distance, so you can try a different restaurant every night.

If you want the convenience of using your computer anywhere in the condo - you will appreciate the wi-fi that will work even on the balcony. Of course, if you don't want to look at your computer at all - you can just enjoy the wonderful breezes and view from the balcony.

Also, please notice the pictures that Pat, one of the guests at the condo, took of the wildlife on the grounds or on the beach in front of the condo. She took them with her small digital camera which just amazed me - what a photographer! We have to thank her for sharing these!

About Jana Charvat

I love the Florida outdoors and that is why I moved here in 2012. The kayaking, bicycling, walking, and hiking are things that I can now do year around. I used to live in Wisconsin and do not miss the snow, cold and grayness. I so enjoy doing vacation rentals as it is so much fun to contribute to great memories of a vacation by providing a place that people can feel at home.

Jana Charvat purchased this condo in 2010

Why Jana Charvat chose Fort Myers Beach

just loved this condo from the moment I walked into it - between the quaintness and the view I was sold. My goal was to fix it up and share it with people who enjoy the beach and appreciate a condo that reflects TLC. Fort Myers beach just has so much to do and is so beautiful are just two of the reasons that I bought here. The next improvement I am planning to make is to upgrade and enlarge the kitchen. My hope is that this place will hold many nice memories for those who stay here as my guest.

Clean Comfortable Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

Excellent condo! This is the second one that we have stayed in that Jana owns. She has everything you need. even things you wouldn't even think about. It is a home away from home. Very clean and beautiful furnishings.

We enjoyed our stay very much. We have a daughter that goes to Florida Gulf Coast University. So we will be back!!

I would recommend this condo to anyone.

Thanks for a great place to stay Jana!

Everything you could possibly need

  • 5 of 5

The views from the balcony were spectacular and the overall location was perfect. We had a choice of many adventures every day as well as restaurants of all types. I would recommend this unit and this part of Florida to anybody. My wife and I look forward to our next trip here as this will become a regular destination for us. Also...the unit had everything you could possibly need....beach chairs, umbrella, coolers, tennis racquets, snorkel equipment and a fully loaded kitchen. Jana thought of everything.

Loved your piece of paradise. We throughly enjoyed our stay with the exception of the construction. One thing I would add to your kitchen would be some staple spices. Otherwise it had everything we needed to cook mix and store what we made. I would definitely recommend friends and family to the same place. The beach was wonderful. Thank you for sharing your place with us.

Owner's Response: I will check on restocking spices as I am not sure what happened, but it had been stocked. Sorry about the construction. The good thing is that my building will be done soon, but unfortunately not soon enough for your stay.

The best condo with all you need!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Well we enjoyed our 5th winter vacation at this wonderful condo. The kitchen had everything needed for meal prep. Fresh strawberries and coffee on the balcony with that wonderful view was a highlight! Beach supplies perfect. The condo has all everyone would need and with Santini Plaza across the street, restaurants and shops are available. The fresh fruit stand is a must.

Thanks again for sharing this wonderful winter spot.

Exactly as pictured! Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a 2 weeks stay (12/20/15 - 1/2/16) at Jana's condo 703C! Absolutely Awesome! Beautifully decorated, clean as a whistle and a fabulous, comfortable stay. The kitchen was very well equipped to cook anything that was your heart's desire. It even has a crockpot, which was great for preparation and then a day at the pool or beach! Jana supplies all things pool, beach and even had floaties for the pool! (And they are allowed in the pool area!) The common areas, pool, laundry facilities, and all grounds areas were impeccably clean and we did not have one concern with our safety whether it be night or day. There are uniformed security that roams the grounds and they were friendly courteous and very attentive to noise, disruptions etc. It was all and all one of the best rentals we have ever had! I would highly recommend this condo to anyone who is looking for a wonderful home away from home vacation! And it didn't hurt that the weather was fabulous! Thanks again Jana! Just sorry we were not able to meet! John and Kathy

From this unit there is no need to have a car. Within walking distance are the Santini shops, restaurants, Holiday Inn Tiki Bar, entertainment, boat rentals, and golf course. Making island exploration easy, just hop on the charming Island Trolley (stop is a few steps away) which will take you all the way to the North end of the island or South to Bonita Springs. A different experience at every stop.

Additional information about rental rates

Please note I do not charge a damage deposit. I would much prefer you let me know if something breaks during your stay so that I can get it fixed. Also, please let me know right away if anything is broken or missing when you check in, so that I might be able to rectify during your stay. Thank you.

CANCELLATIONS –Cancellations that are made more than sixty (60) days prior to the arrival date are subject to a 5% cancellation fee or $50, whichever is greater. Cancellations or changes that result in a shortened stay, that are made within 60 days of the arrival date, forfeit the full advance payment and reservation deposit.

Monthly renters who make a change that results in a shortened stay must be made at least ninety (90) days prior to check-in.

I always recommend travel insurance for those unforeseen illnesses or accidents.
