About the property

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

Away from the crowds and noise is this spectacular, waterfront (on the beach) corner condominium allowing you private unobstructed views of the Gulf, San Carlos Pass, Fort Myers Beach, Back Bays, and is on Lover’s Key State Park Beach (#4 in the US with 3 miles of pristine white sand shelling beach and 700 acres of natural surroundings).

Feeds the senses & nourishes the soul!

Experience the magnificence and tranquility of Black Island, named after the Pirate Black Augustus who used its land and waters. Imagine lounging on your own private sunny balcony, listening to the waves lapping against the beach, having your coffee, drink or meal watching the dolphins, manatees, birds, boaters, sunbathers, and fishermen below. You will love the romance of the ever-changing sunsets and lights from ships at sea, the draw-bridge and Fort Myers Beach at night. This unique corner unit offers total privacy within the unit AND balcony, allowing sunbathing, enjoyable and relaxing times without prying eyes. This unit is beautiful and was completely remodeled in January 2017 including new furniture, granite countertops, flat screen TVs, luxurious Gel-Foam king-size bed, extensive artwork from Peter Max and others with many upgrades.

All units are NOT the same on the beach and especially at Lover's Key! This is one of a handful of CHOICE units in this complex in the 02 stack and offers the private corner of the building with majestic 270 degree views. Don't risk your vacation & the chance for a lifetime memorable experience in order to save a few dollars on inferior and disappointing accommodations.

Truly one of the most dramatic and relaxing spots on any coast in the US. There is a very special feeling that comes from this unique and magical unit that cannot be explained---only experienced. You can see from those guests who share their experiences and their desire to return over and over that there is something special that feeds the senses and nourishes the soul. Come and see why Lover's Key State Park is the 4th most visited park in Florida and why the name Lover's is appropriate.

This is a PRIVATELY OWNED & MAINTAINED UNIT that is offered to you as place for your 'Special Vacation.' The entire common areas in the building has been totally upgraded and is 100% owner-managed, with each unit decorated or remodeled differently with lots of friendly people. This building is NOT a hotel, but an extremely unique escape that will become your personal paradise, where you can make lifetime friends and you will want to return to year-after-year! This is the ONLY building on Black Island that has its’ own beach with chairs, loungers and Tiki Huts AND allows you to walk directly into Lover’s Key State Park without walking on the road and paying a fee (don’t be fooled).

RELAX! This resort experience allows you to unwind, fall in love all over again, and enjoy your time without waiting in lines or feeling like you are in rushed traffic and crowds. Whether sunning on your private balcony checking your emails with the free WIFI (with table and chairs and recliner) or enjoying the 85-degree, Olympic-size pool (never full) and Jacuzzi overlooking the water, outdoor dining area with free gas grills, Bocce ball court, plus a private beach with chairs and umbrellas (always available) where you can relax in the sun, socialize, or play with water toys. You do not have to GO anywhere to truly relax - it is all right here. Yes, you can have your own boat or jet ski here, anchor it by the beach, and will be able to watch it from this unit. ENJOY OUR FREE 2 PERSON KAYAK while visiting.

Your beach front restaurant (Flippers) is available 500 feet from your door and many others are nearby. Should you want to mix with the 'Times Square' crowd or tourist beach crowd, you can drive or a quick 50-cent trolley will take you there quickly, stops everywhere, and saves parking fees in some of the busier areas during peak tourist periods. The 75 cent trolley stops on the street in front of the complex to take you directly to Fort Myers or Bonita Springs cities, beaches, restaurants, and shopping.

Note: There are coolers, fishing equipment, rafts, kites, games, and toys to keep everyone busy. Smoking is allowed only on the balcony with the door closed. NO pets, sorry. This unit has a floor-to-ceiling wood-folding curtain which allows separating the sleeping areas at night, for additional privacy, in case you have others using the queen-size hide-a-bed.

Thanks for looking. Call or email with any questions.

You will save the VRBO service fee by booking directly through the owner or just for questions. After choosing 'request a quote', the 2nd page allows you to CONTACT THE OWNER FOR A DETAILED QUOTE. Hit that and leave your requested dates or questions.

About Jon

Lover's Key has held a special place in our heart since Jon toured the entire Florida coast in the 90's looking for that "SPECIAL PLACE' and discovered this unique and magical location. Jon never got this location and experience out of his mind or soul, so before he moved from San Francisco to SW Florida he grabbed up this magnificent unit so that he would have it whenever he needed that special relaxing place. We are happy to share our Special Place with our friends and guests and now it has become theirs as well - with many coming multiple times a year. We hope you will check out our reviews and see what others experiences have been and hope to add yours to the list. We go out of our way to make your experience special.

Jon & Barbara live close by on the water in Matlacha.

Check out our piece of paradise. Enjoy!

Spent a beautiful week in paradise. Sunset perfect every night right from our balcony...cocktails included.

Jon was great to work with and very accommodating. Perfect for two people. Very clean and comfortable. Location was great. Easy to Sanibel, route 41, Naples, Marco for the day, Bonita etc. Lover's Key is terrific.

Every day..all day...watched dolphins play 20 yards from beach. incredible. Walked to Flippers one night for a terrific meal. On and on and on...great vacation.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

The unit was beautiful! Recently remodeled, and a wonderful view from the balcony. We saw beautiful sunsets and even a dolphin swimming near our private beach. This property is away from the busy area of Fort Myers Beach, but the trolley was a short walk away, so we were easily able to get to Times Square for dinner. Flipper's restaurant is super close and the food and service there is excellent. We also used the heated pool and hot tub. The gas grills are convenient, too.

Easy walk to Lover's Key State Park, with access right from our private beach.

Best Relaxing Trip Ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

This Lover's Key Condo (unit 602) had the best view and location in the Fort Myers, Bonita Springs area! We wanted a place to rest, relax and have plenty of beach/pool time! It was the perfect place! We were able to watch all the wildlife and collect shells. Each evening we drove short distances to great places to eat dinner in the area. Never had a bad meal. Just a perfect location to enjoy nature, quiet, friendly people and warm Florida weather! The owner was very easy to work with and very helpful with suggestions on food and activities in the area. Literally if you travel without kids and want a romantic getaway or a quiet place without a ton of tourists, this is the place!!! Will be back for sure and would highly recommend!!!!

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

We found a hidden gem with this Lover's Key condo! Perfect location- private beach and next to Lover's Key State Park. The beach was amazing- soft white sand and plenty of room (there were times we were the only ones on the beach!) We were out of the busy Fort Myers Beach area, but close enough if we wanted more action. Our family LOVED just hanging out by the water, watching dolphins and birds, and collecting shells. So relaxing...

The owner was extremely helpful and made our stay very easy. The condo has everything you need! We will definitely be back!

What a fabulous location and the perfect condo for the two of us! The views and sunsets are truly amazing. The condo is clean and has everything you need. The pool and jacuzzi are really great and the people are friendly. The owner Jon is very helpful and easy to contact. The beach extends into Lover's Key State Park which is awesome to explore with beautiful birds, sunsets, shells and driftwood trees. We enjoyed The Fish House for stone crabs and seafood. Also Coconut Jacks is a good restaurant. For adventure try kayaking with the manatees at Manatee Park in Ft. Myers. Naples Botanical Gardens is not to be missed. The Farmers Market on Sanibel is wonderful. And if you feel like taking a ride go to the Ringling Circus Museum in Sarasota, it was really a great take. The local library will print out your boarding passes. All in all, we had a wonderful time and would highly recommend this condo.

Thank you Jon for sharing this beautiful place with all of us. We'll be back!
