South Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms 2 Baths (Sleeps 4) Occupancy is 1-4 people-inclu all children

Welcome to Our Vacation DREAM Home! TOTALLY REMODELED

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. Our transformation continues and you will be pleased!!

Just added in 2015, new Fireplace, dedicated WiFi for our home only and much more. Beautiful views can be seen from our clean and updated Direct Gulf Front condominium 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.

Completed in October, 2013: Freshly painted, new crown moldings/trim, stainless appliances, custom hardwood cabinetry, Quartz counter tops throughout, gorgeous tiled bathrooms, new window treatments, 6 panel doors, new high end mattresses with double sanitary protection, new TV’s, high speed internet and 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. 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.

About Ron and Linda

Ron and I are both 67 years young and decided to follow our dream by purchasing our beachfront condo home. We both continue to work in our IT professions to fulfill this dream.

Ron and Linda purchased this condo in 2011

Why Ron and Linda chose Fort Myers Beach

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.

The area is loaded with exceptional restaurants serving the most delicious sea food possible. Come here to relax or be as busy as you want touring the area.

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!

The most comfortable & relaxing vacation ever.

  • 5 of 5

I was pleasantly surpised with the condition of the condo. It was A+ clean, everything was neatly decorated and comfortable. Watching the beautiful sunsets from the lanai was amazing. Walking along the beach looking for seashells was so relaxing. The area restaurants and attractions were great & lots of fun. If you want a comfortable & relaxing vacation I would recommend (like I did to my friends and family) to stay here!!!

Winter Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very clean and the location was very good also. The location on the south end of Ft. Myers Beach, is much more quite than the north end and the beach in front of the condo, is wonderful. The condo building is well maintained, the pool is kept at approx. 80 degrees and the grills were acceptable, although the back burners on both grills didn't work. (not a biggee) I would've liked to book this same unit next year, but wasn't given that opportunity as the owners rented the first two weeks in Feb. without giving us a chance. We were able to rent a different unit in the building for the month of Feb. next year. This unit had just been remodled and was very nice...possibly the best unit in the building. There was a good assortment of utensils, pots, pans, silverware, trash bags, etc. The beach chairs are very nice and we used them almost every day, as the weather throughout February was terrific. We enjoyed the many restaurants in the area, particularly Flippers, Coconut Jacks, Hickory Beach Grill, Fish House, Nervous Nellies, the Mucky Duck on Captiva Is. and the Casa Ybel on Sanibel. We also had several dinners where we bought fresh seafood at Sanibel Seafood and either grilled out or made it in our condo. For day trips, we went to the Ringling Museum in Sarasota, the Edison/Ford winter homes in Ft. Myers, Corkscrew Sanctuary, both the Ft. Myers & Naples piers, Ft. Myers Art Fair, The Ding Darling Preserve on Sanibel (take the tram ride) and we took a ride down to the Everglades area. (take the "loop road" to see many birds & alligators). I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to enjoy the Florida Gulf Coast and all that it has to offer.

The perfect place for a perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

Arriving here with my family after a long flight from England I was pleased to find that we had rented such a superb condo. The condo is spacious and furnished to a very high standard. The rooms are airy and clean. It was nice to find so many towels and beach towel for use. We also liked the Tommy Bahama beach chairs which came in very handy not only for our tips to the beach right outside the condo, but for Lovers Key and Barefoot Beach, both family favourites. The views from this condo are stunning, a real treat.

The on site pool and hot tub are excellent. I would say that the building and grounds are kept to a very high standard.

Within walking distance there are some good restaurants at Santini Plaza, or you can use the trolly tram to take you to Times Square.

Would I rent this condo again? The answer is a definite yes. It is the perfect place for a great vacation.
