It's a short drive to Sanibel-Captiva Islands or Ft Myers Beach straight down San Carlos Blvd. Lovers Key State Park is only a short drive as well!

We love South Fort Myers & we love our home! We know you will too!!!

About LaVaun Johnson

Rod & LaVaun are both Midwesterners. He grew up in SW Iowa, near where we currently live. She grew up in S.Dak. We have been happily married for 36 years with 2 adult children & their spouses; God's greatest gift to us! We have traveled to many places. But our favorite spot to vacation in the US has been south Fort Myers area so 5 yrs ago we decided to look for a home there to spend some relaxing times & to share it with others as a vacation rental! Our search ended in July 2012 when we found South Pointe & began to put our personality into it!

LaVaun Johnson purchased this house in 2012

Why LaVaun Johnson chose Fort Myers

South Pointe is not just your basic vacation rental. It is filled with extras so you don't have to buy all those little & big things you need to enjoy your vacation! Such as all the pool toys, floating loungers, everything you need for the beach (towels, coolers, ice packs, beach chairs, umbrella, toys) & if you want to go for a bike ride, there are 2 bikes in the garage for you to use! If you like to cook, the kitchen is equipped with spices, condiments in the frig, & every type of baking dish you need! The cabinets are filled with silverware, glasses, & dishes. If you like to read, we have lots of books. If you like to watch movies, we have a collection of dvd's plus our satellite TV!

Beachwalk Isles is the perfect community with some fulltime residents & some part time & everyone is friendly! People love to walk & on our quiet streets you can do just that! You feel secluded here with the peaceful tropical surroundings but just outside the gate everything you could want is close at hand! Shops, restaurants, fitness center, & a short drive to the beaches! The house is the perfect size with an open welcoming floor plan! The heated pool is so relaxing! We love it & you will too!

What makes this house unique

We love the open floor plan of our home. You can be in the kitchen & see clear out to the pool! We also love that the master suite is separated for privacy. There is also a laundry room instead of just a laundry closet! We looked at many many properties in our home search but this home, neighborhood, & area are perfect for us & know it will be for you also!

South Pointe has it all!

Perfect Rental Minutes from the Beach

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing week at this property and it was perfect. LaVaun and Rod have thought of everything, you can literally pack only your clothes and still have everything you need or possibly think of. The pool was perfect as it has great sun exposure all day and it is so peaceful in this adorable neighborhood. The house is recently renovated with a large kitchen and beautiful tropical landscape out the window. Other than the pool, I really enjoyed the massive shower in the master bathroom and the beds were very comfortable! Fort Myers beach was maybe a five to ten minute drive, but the location is great because you are so close to shopping and restaurants. A great rental, I highly recommend to anyone!

Owner's Response: Sami, thanks for the great review! We are so glad you enjoyed our home & all the extras we try to provide. It's hard to know which is better: the great Florida sunshine by the pool or at a nearby beach! We love our home & area & we love sharing it! We would love to have you return!

This was our third visit and stay in this home. We are always pleased to have our family vacation at this location. We plan to come back in the near future. The location is perfect, close to shopping and near the Fort Myers beaches.

Thanks to LaVaun and Rod.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the end of March for a week for Spring Break. It was my wife, three daughters (8, 10, 12), and myself. We had a blast! LaVaun was great and easy to work with and communicate with. You could tell she and her husband take great pride in this house. The location was fantastic. There is so much to do in Fort Myers. We were out and about exploring every day. It was fantastic. You have to leave in the morning for the beach if you don't want to get stuck in beach traffic, but I'm sure that's anywhere. If you avoid the traffic, you're at the beach in no time. The house is close to groceries, restaurants, shopping, etc. It's in a quiet, residential, gated community, so our girls riding bikes (two provided) and walks was no worry at all.

The owners provide plenty of toys for the pool and beach as well as chairs, umbrella, coolers, ice packs, condiments, dvds, towels, paper products, laundry detergent, etc. They also provided a very thoughtful welcome gift. Thus, one only needs to worry about what clothes to bring and what you want to eat or drink, because this house has everything else.

The house itself is very well taken care of. The heated pool area was perfect for swimming daily as we did. Our girls especially loved it. The bedrooms are all very efficient, and the master is quite nice as is the master bath and walk-in closet. The kitchen is well set up and stocked well with utensils, dishes and pots and pans. The living room is the perfect place to gather as we enjoyed a couple movie nights. We even used the garage to park, so that was also a major plus to keep the car cool.

I think the biggest thing that I liked about LaVaun and Rod's place was that they treated you like adults. They didn't nickel and dime you for everything; they trusted that you would take care of their house as responsible adults. Don't go crazy with the electricity, and it is included in the price. Clean up after yourselves and respect their property and the security deposit gets back to you quickly in full. Pretty simple concept really. All in all, a great place that we would definitely stay at again and highly recommend! For the price, I don't think you could do any better.

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation at South Pointe. The home is exactly as pictured, lovely and comfortable. It was extremely clean and welcoming! The owners were wonderful to deal with and responded to all of our questions in a very timely manner. They have thought of everything! We vacationed with our daughter and her family which included two small boys and South Pointe was just perfect. We truly enjoyed Fort Myers!

Our home, South Pointe, is in a quiet gated tropical community in South Fort Myers called Beachwalk Isles. Everyone agrees it is the perfect location! Just outside the gates is everything you need - stores, restaurants, fitness center, banks, salons, etc. It's a short drive to Sanibel/Captiva Islands & Fort Myers Beach or a bit further down the road to Lovers Key State Park. There are a vast array of gorgeous beaches & shelling! A short walk out our gates brings you to Biscotti's for coffee, homemade breakfast, lunch, dinner or ice cream! Starbucks is right across the street along with a Target Super Center & other stores & restaurants! Our favorite Mexican restaurant LaCasita is just a few blocks away! Loveboat Ice-cream is also just down the street with some of the best ice cream we've had! Tanger Outlet Mall is 5 minutes down the street. This area has lots of consignment & thrift stores which is antique hunting Fort Myers style!! There is plenty of golf close by & places to rent boats or kayaks. We are a short drive to Edison & Ford Winter Estates, beautiful downtown Fort Myers & the river district, & Major League Baseball spring training! We LOVE our area & so do all our guests!
