                  Year Purchased: 1999

                  About the owner: My husband and I reside in the Tampa, FL area and after going with some friends for a long wkend to Ft. Myers Beach we feel in love with the area. We wanted to find something close to home so that we could frequent the area as often as possible. Now that we have a family it has become even more important for us to have our own little piece of 'paradise'. We love all that Ft. Myers Beach has to offer. So much to do without leaving the island, yet also a great place to do nothing but relax. We are so sure that you will also fall in love with island that you will want to come back to stay with us again in the future.

                  Why the Owner Chose Sand Caper:
                  We went with some friends over a memorial weekend and fell in love with the area. We decided to take a wkend by ourselves & camp down in the area while we looked at condos for sale. This was the first unit we looked at & fell in love with it & it's location on the island.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  Our unit offers so many extras for your comfort such as: beach chairs, beach towels, cooler, beach toys, picnic basket, swim noodles, intertubes, card & board games, books, magazines, along w/all new appliances and completely tiled throughout. We even provide spices, cleaners, dish & laundry detergent. All we ask is to be courteous & replace anything used up. Our decor is very tropical. Our unit is on the first floor so you don't have the hastle of stairs or elevators. If you walk out the front of our building you are at the pool.
