Overview

South Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

One Bedroom, One Bath Gulf Front On The Beach

The condo was decorated to give you the feel of the beach from the moment you walk in the door. From the pillow top mattress King size bed, to the tennis rackets, beach chairs, umbrella, etc. provided for your use as well as binoculars to view the abundant wildlife that you will see right from your windows, doors, and balcony. WIFI is also included in the unit so you don't have to go down to the first floor to use your computer, you can do it in the comfort of your own space.

The new fully stocked granite counter kitchen should have everything you need if you wish to cook a meal or make yourself a fancy drink. (This does not include the food or drink itself, just all the kitchen gadgets required).

The bathroom has a walk in shower with a bench to make access into the shower easy and a pleasure to take a nice strong shower at the end of your day - the water pressure is great.

The sofa is a reclining sofa (NOT a sofa sleeper), and is so comfortable at the end of the day when you have been running around and just want to relax. The coffee table is on casters so it can easily be moved when reclining.

The condo also has books and DVD's just in case you have forgotten to bring something to read or if you just feel like watching a movie at the end of your fun filled day on the beach.

About Jana Charvat

I grew up in Lombard, IL and went to Glenbard East High School there, and then moved to Wisconsin where I then lived for 35 years before moving to Florida last year (November 2012). I love this area so much because of the great weather and all of the things there are to do, of which I just love kayaking in this area, there are hundreds of miles of trails.

Jana Charvat purchased this condo in 2013

Why Jana Charvat chose Fort Myers Beach

As soon as I saw the view from all of the windows, doors and balcony, I knew this condo would be a place that many people would really be overwhelmed by the great view, just as I was and would really do justice to 'Best View Rental'. The location is outstanding for people who do not want to drive to go to dinner and can walk across the street or down the beach as there are so many places to go that are walking distance.

What makes this condo unique

I own three other condos and have had so much fun getting to know some of the guests and getting the feedback of how much they have enjoyed staying at my places, for the warmth created by the decorating, to having it stocked, down to replacement batteries that might be needed, to make it truly and home away from home experience.

Awesome Condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this condo for a week and it was fantastic!! Very cozy and clean. We loved the layout and the cute decor. Everything we needed was provided. The bed and pillows were so comfortable. We just loved everything about this place. We will definitely be staying here again in the future!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Cutest condo ever! My husband and I are about to celebrate our 30th anniversary and took this week for ourselves and had a fantastic week alone together. Weather could have been better but can't have predicted that. Loved the condo, everything about it. So cute and comfortable! Would love to come back again.

Relaxing

Great view from the balcony. Perfect condo for 2. Everything you could want or need is already thought of for you. Couldn't ask for a better person to rent from. She was great. Thanks for everything.

Fantastic week

  • 5 of 5

The unit was even better than expected. The balcony was furnished very well and the view is spectacular. The condo was supplied with everything one could ask for from all the dishes, etc.to everything to use on the beach, chairs, umbrella, cooler, plus the beach was only steps away. Jana was great to work with. I would highly recommend renting this condo.

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice week with great weather during an uncrowded time. The condo had everything needed and then some. The king sized bed was extremely comfortable as was the living area.The only downfall to our stay were the balconies were being refurbished and a neighboring condo was under construction, which was completely out of Jana's control. She compensated us nicely for the inconvenience. It was very noisy, otherwise, it was a very quiet serene area to be. Many fun things to do and see close by. Walking distance to shops and eating if you wanted. Dolphins swimming were an almost daily occurrence. Loved it there. Would definitely return and rent from Jana again.

Great Get-Away Condo!

  • 5 of 5

A cozy, comfy condo. Very clean and well equipped. The view from the balcony of the Gulf and beach is just awesome! We loved walking the beach every day, looking for shells, and watching the dolphins. The weather happened to be cooler, but it was just fine for us as it was zero degrees and below back home at the time! We would highly recommend this area and condo for a super vacation get-away. The owner kept us informed and was very easy to work with. We will definitely be back!! Thanks so much for sharing.

Right across the street is Santini Plaza which has several restaurants and shops which are varied in price and atmosphere. Of the restaurants there is South Beach Grille, upscale atmosphere, a little pricy, but good food; Francesco Italian Deli & Pizzeria, a take out place, the portions are huge; Sandbar Grille, a varied menu, reasonably priced, Castaways, more of a bar that has entertainment, nightly that does serve food, Subway, sub sandwiches; Fish House, rather hidden behind Santini, known for their seafood and overlooking the Bay, nothing fancy, but good food.

There are powerboat and kayak rents right across the street as well at the Fish-Tale Marina.

You can also catch the trolley going either north to Ft. Myers and all the stops on the island or you can go south to Bonita Beach. The stops are right by the condo complex and you can check you smart phone for when the exact time the trolley will make the stop, instructions at the trolley stop.
