About the property

Riviera Club Condo, 2 Bedrooms 2 Baths- Free WiFi- Totally Remodeled-Sleeps 4

Welcome to Our Vacation DREAM Home! TOTALLY REMODELED!! New custom Living Room furniture added January 15, 2018.

We would like to invite you to stay at our dream home!!! Ron and I are offering 2 week minimal stays at extremely fair rental rates but do ask that you treat our home like your own assuming that you love your home. Our transformation continues and you will be pleased!!

Beautiful views can be seen from our clean and totally updated Direct Gulf Front condo that has approximately 1200 sq ft including the lanai. Our home has a true 'Gulf Front' location. A safe swimming beach is right in front of our building and is completely visible from our home. No stretching your neck or leaning over the balcony railing to see the Gulf. We are located on the ocean and NOT on the river.

Totally remodeled: Freshly painted, new crown moldings/trim, stainless appliances, custom hardwood cabinetry, Quartz counter tops throughout, gorgeous tiled bathrooms, new window treatments, award winning fireplace, 6 panel doors, new high end mattresses with double sanitary protection, new TV’s, high speed internet, free WiFi much more....

Our Kitchen is open concept with custom hardwood cabinetry having a white base and Key West Blue accents, Cambria Quartz counter tops (Cambria is nonporous and nonabsorbent), marbled stone backsplash, and full size stainless appliances including a French door refrigerator, crown molding tray ceiling, double sink, Moen designer faucet, new Front Load washer/dryer and dynamic RGB special lighting. We also have Wilton Armetale Serveware. The Quartz island counter extends for extra seating. Need to take care of business while cooking, no problem since there is a separate office right off the kitchen.

Our Master Bedroom is spacious and bright with a spectacular view of the Gulf of Mexico. We have a new Paula Deen Home Collection King Bedroom set, all new high end mattresses with double protection sanitation coverings, new designer bed linens, new mounted LCD flat screen TV, ceiling fan, new high impact sliding door leading to lanai, iPod (iHome) docking station, new crown molding and new highly recommended cool gel mattress topper.

Our Master Dressing area leads to 2 closets as well as the master bathroom. One closet has new floor to ceiling mirrored doors while the other closet is a walk-in. The bathroom contains a combination shower/bathtub area with an oversized soaking Kohler tub, fantastic Moen ‘RAIN SHOWER’ and new comfort height toilet. Bathroom counter top is quartz with Moen brushed nickel fountain faucet and plenty of extra storage.

Our guest room has new mattresses with double protection sanitation coverings, new designer bed linens, new LCD flat screen TV, ceiling fan, new pictures and new crown molding.

The guest bathroom has porcelain tile with a beautiful new walk-in shower with a Moen ‘RAIN SHOWER’. Mirror custom made to match the Quartz counter top, comfort height toilet and brushed nickel faucet/accessories.

Our unit is elevated twelve feet above the sand and feels like a traditional beach house because there is only one flight of stairs from the beach to the unit. No need to take the elevator. You can walk along seven miles of silky sand beach loaded with shells and sand dollars which are just outside the windows and lanai. Mother Nature drops off another batch of seashells each morning, and in the evening, inspiring sunsets color the sky like a modern masterpiece of art. The natural light and the sound of waves fill every corner of the unit. Yes, the sound of the surf heard in the unit will magically lull you to sleep. Beautiful landscaping surrounds the building which is graced with a large geo-thermal heated pool with waterfall, spa, clubhouse and gorgeous tropical pond.

The adjacent clubhouse offers such things as indoor seating, kitchenette and the opportunity to meet the nicest people while barbecuing dinner on the provided gas grills.

Our condo sleeps 4. Occupancy limit is 1 to 4 people. Please note: a child, any age, is counted as a person

Sorry but we do not allow pets or smoking inside our condo or on the Lanai.

About Ron and Linda

Ron and I both worked in our IT professions until we were 67 years old to obtain our dream retirement home. Per Ron: ‘It Is What It Is’.

Ron and Linda purchased this condo in 2011

Why Ron and Linda chose South Island

We were looking for a well built condo with building amenities consistently updated, majority of units occupied by owners, great ocean front view, miles of white sand beach to stroll, friendly tenants, pool, hot tub, and the luxury of not needing to rent a car.

What makes this condo unique

Our building has a security door leading into a lobby. No sightseers roaming the halls and lingering outside your door. Our location is a DIRECT BEACHFRONT property with a safe swimming beach right in front of our building. Shopping, golfing, restaurants, bars and boat tours are all within walking distance.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is xxxxx and xx, this condo is awesome. My only fear each time we vacation is that wherever we stay it will be clean. You have done a wonderful job. Very clean and beautifully done. Thank you so very much.

2 weeks in a beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was beautifully furnished and the owners had taken a lot of time to create an elegant and high quality apartment with an attention to detail. As well as everything you would expect it was very clean and extras such as beach chairs, beach umbrellas, beach towels and beach games were provided. It had an extremely good wifi at no additional cost. The only slight negative we experienced was the lack of a TV service during our stay. The owner offered to fix it through the cable supplier but we could not be in the apartment when the supplier was able to fix the problem. We don't watch much TV so it was not a problem for us. The location is great right next to a beautiful beach but easy access to the centre of Fort Meyers Beach where there are numerous restaurants. We saw dolphins from the beach which was fantastic. We would recommend this apartment.

We just love this place!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying in Linda's and Ron's condo. Clean, newly decorated bathrooms, lots of towels for indoor and outdoor use, top of the line washing machine, fridge, freezer an oven enabling a "normal life". Clean and modern, making a stay with juniors just as easy as at home.

We completely fell in love with the condo last year, the location on Ft Myers Beach, the pool area, easy parking and very friendly neighbors. But first and foremost; the way we were welcomed by Linda and Ron was way beyond our expectations. Probably the best hosts I ever will experience! Now we are counting the days for our next summer in Linda and Ron's beautiful condo. In fact we made the booking for this summer pretty soon after arriving last year. Never change a winning concept!
