              Right across the street is Santini Plaza which has several restaurants and shops which are varied in price and atmosphere. Of the restaurants there is South Beach Grille, upscale atmosphere, a little pricy, but good food; Francesco Italian Deli & Pizzeria, a take out place, the portions are huge; Sandbar Grille, a varied menu, reasonably priced, Castaways, more of a bar that has entertainment, nightly that does serve food, Subway, sub sandwiches; Fish House, rather hidden behind Santini, known for their seafood and overlooking the Bay, nothing fancy, but good food.

              There are powerboat and kayak rents right across the street as well at the Fish-Tale Marina.

              You can also catch the trolley going either north to Ft. Myers and all the stops on the island or you can go south to Bonita Beach. The stops are right by the condo complex and you can check you smart phone for when the exact time the trolley will make the stop, instructions at the trolley stop.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: I grew up in Lombard, IL and went to Glenbard East High School there, and then moved to Wisconsin where I then lived for 35 years before moving to Florida last year (November 2012). I love this area so much because of the great weather and all of the things there are to do, of which I just love kayaking in this area, there are hundreds of miles of trails.

              Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, North Island:
              As soon as I saw the view from all of the windows, doors and balcony, I knew this condo would be a place that many people would really be overwhelmed by the great view, just as I was and would really do justice to 'Best View Rental'. The location is outstanding for people who do not want to drive to go to dinner and can walk across the street or down the beach as there are so many places to go that are walking distance.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              I own three other condos and have had so much fun getting to know some of the guests and getting the feedback of how much they have enjoyed staying at my places, for the warmth created by the decorating, to having it stocked, down to replacement batteries that might be needed, to make it truly and home away from home experience.
