Discounts are extended periodically, depending on availability and demand. We live in in Lake Mary, FL. and are retired. What state and town are you from? We often discount our Northern guests as we know how much they need to escape the cold. We know first hand being from Michigan ourselves ! We are proud of our family who stay in touch with us on FB. Are you on Facebook too? Bob Gorman

SPECIAL NOTE 1: For our Beach condo GUESTS .......FREE in condo wireless internet service. We recognize our guests need to have a strong computer wireless signal inside our condo, so we have added this amenity and a NEWER Blu Ray DVD player too ! Also, Nautica beach chairs and umbrella Plus a 12 pack size hard sided cooler for your pool, beach or picnic use.

SPECIAL NOTE 2: We remodeled our condo extensively. We replaced all kitchen cabinets, installed a deep double bowl black granite sink, tile backsplash and also installed a new stove and refrigerator, We also replaced our old entertainment cabinet with a new modern tapes and book storage cabinet and installed a new wall mount 37' Toshiba flatscreen TV. Further, we replaced our King bedroom furniture with a White Cottage set and also installed new 'Mississippi Pine' wood laminate flooring in the bedroom. NO dirt catching carpeting remains in our condo. Additionally, our NEW Heavy Duty Hurricane rated Turtle Tint windows and 9' slider door not only provides more safety, but more comfort for our condo as well. Our NEW AC now cools faster and better.

SPECIAL NOTE 3: We also own a beautiful 3/3 LOG CABIN in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Contact me should you want to enjoy a wonderful Smoky Mountains vacation any time of the year. The cabin sleeps 10 people and you can split the cost with family and friends. Ober Gatlinburg is slope and skating rink. Summertime, the slopes have water slides and fun for all. Don't forget Dollywood and the Great Smoky Mountain National park magical drive experience too!

You expect to see GREAT VIEWS from a Penthouse level beachside condo and you will get them Big Time from our place. We have a number of e-referrals we can share attesting to the Fabulous Views you will experience 'On Top'. Beware: there are many condos in our complex which have very poor and low unappealing parking lot views. You're going on Vacation, right? You deserve to be able to say WOW !!!!!!!!! when you lease a beachside vacation condo. You will LOVE our Fort Myers Beach Penthouse condo views !!

This Penthouse-level (14th floor) condo is situated on the Gulf of Mexico with fabulous views of Estero Bay, Naples, and Sanibel Island from the covered balcony. This one bedroom condo features a very comfortable king-size bed as well as a new queen sleeper sofa & rocker/recliner in the living room with a heavy sliding door for privacy. NOTE: Beautiful porcelain tile installed in the 'Diamond' pattern on all floors except the bedroom. It is gorgeous!! Only a handful of units offer this very upscale feature.

The Kitchen is fully-equipped including new arm kitchen chairs on wheels. Towels/linens are provided (see amenities below). Just bring your own beach towels! There is a huge heated pool with luxurious sun deck. There is a large grassy area for additional crowd-free sunning or sports activities.

Restaurants, drug store, marina and 18 hole golf course are just across the street. The beach trolley is only 25 cents and will take you from one end of the beach to the other and to Fort Myers for additional shopping or dining. There are two Supermarkets on the island. There is a Catholic Church & several Protestant Churches just up the street.

Enjoy four, well manicured (free) clay tennis courts on property at this prestigious private Beach and Tennis Club. Cook out on the free gas grills near the floor shuffleboards. From your balcony, view dolphins playing and jumping in the surf. There are also many species of colorful birds to see such as pelicans, egrets, osprey, and herons. NOTE: Please notice the difference between the views of our Penthouse unit and lower floor units also advertised in VRBO. While lounging on the balcony, you will not look out directly onto the unsightly WEEDS of the Sandbar. Our guests comment on this all the time. This is an important point to make.

Take early morning, afternoon, or sunset walks on the pure white sugar powder sand of this most beautiful beach. Stop in one of the many varied beachfront restaurants all along the boulevard. Enjoy dining or cocktails on their gulfside decks overlooking the beach. Beach sunsets are too beautiful to describe!

Our rates are generally lower than most all others at this tropical paradise. Repeat guests are guaranteed the same rates for at least two years!! Also, any rental referrals you provide us will earn you rent credits for your own future rentals.

Whether you desire a romantic get-away, a small family beach vacation, or are a retired couple looking for peace and serenity, you will find that you will fall in love with this little bit of heaven and want to return year after year.

There is something for everyone. Hunt shells on the beach, play golf or tennis, swim in the Gulf of Mexico, or just 'veg out' at the huge heated pool. One of our favorite things to do is to enjoy breakfast, lunch, or dinner on the covered balcony just taking in the gorgeous beach sights and sunsets. You can also rent beach chairs, umbrellas, 2 person hood shade lounges w/cushions right on the beach behind the Holiday Inn. The Holiday Inn is just a short 4-5 minute walk up the beach behind the condo. Their Pinchers Grill is a great outdoor Tiki Bar which serves beer, mixed drinks and food. They often offer live entertainmment. There are also a number of good restaurants and bars right across the street in Santini Plaza as well.

There is no better way to get away from all the stresses life presents! Treat yourself... you deserve it!

NOTE: Wi Fi can be accessed in the lobby area on the floor level of the condo building. There are chairs and tables to sit at for your convenience. Wireless is broadcast from the complex office located next to our building.

About Bob Gorman

We have owned our Penthouse level condo for many years and many of our guests return year after year. We do our best to satisy our guests. Our caretaker/cleaner is Sue and she is happy to assist if there is any problem whatsoever. We aim to please. Understand that our out the door price quotes include rent, tax, exit cleaning and start up toiletry supplies.

Why Bob Gorman chose South Island

We loved the views from our Penthouse level condo the first time we saw it. 100% Gulf views get boring fast and especially during the black nights. You have the best of both worlds looking from our balcony.....the Gulf waters, the night lights, the magical surroundings

What makes this condo unique

This is one of only 2 condos in Building 'A' where you can see OVER the other 2 buildings of our condo complex....all the way to Naples....AND see the Gulf of Mexico at the very same time from our balcony. The views are simply fabulous !

We loved our stay at Estero Beach and Tennis Club. It is a perfect location on the island and we loved the condo. The views were beautiful and we loved the sunny lanai in the morning with the shade in the afternoon. Bib was very nice to work with. He was genuinely concerned that we had a good vacation. We are planning our return.

Owner's Response: Debbie: Thanks so much for your very nice 5 Star guest review. Yes and per your email to me, the first 2 weeks in December are open and we would be honored if you choose to book them. We love our returning guests, many of them are year after year guests. People need to understand that very often the absolute lowest price isn't going to make their vacations enjoyable, especially if they are stuck in a crappy condo with terrible views. PH3A's views are awesome as most every guest notes. Thanks again. Bob

Great Condo -Fort Myers Beach

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a 2 week stay at Bob's condo. Beach views were great, condo was clean and location fantastic. It was great walking right out of condo onto beach. Acrosss the street was a little mall with several great restaurants and clothing stores. Condo is located in the south end of Ft Myers Beach which is a quieter area then in the north. Bob was very accommodating and returned emails almost immediately. Thanks for a great holiday.

Fort Meyers Beach Penthouse Condo

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a week in February at this condo. As advertised, the view is the most spectacular we've experienced in our many years of spending some winter time in Florida. You see both the sunrise and the sunset. It's especially fun when the conch horns are blown at sunset. Lots of great restaurants in the area with a couple within walking distance. The owner is very accommodating and easy to reach. He responds to emails very quickly. Although we had no problems while we stayed, we felt comfortable knowing that Bob would very quickly take care of any problems we had. The beach is a very short walk from the entrance/exit doors, and my wife and I very much enjoyed our walking and shelling experiences. Watch for special little visual treats on the beach as you walk. If we would choose to return to Fort Meyers Beach, I would not hesitate to contact Bob on the availability of his condo.

Owner's Response: Well hey Dan.....Thank you so much for your great review. It is much appreciated. This description is what others hope to read about the vacation condos they are considering. There are plenty of not so great condos in our complex with lousy views. You are one of many who point to our place as being superior. Thank you again and we look forward to hearing back from you very soon re: another reservation. Bob
