About the owner: Mike and Susan spent years searching for the perfect waterfront property. With the beach only a stone-throw away and a beautiful wide canal they finally settled into their new paradise in summer of 2014.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, South Island: After searching throughout Florida, visiting beaches up and down both coasts, we settled in Ft Myers Beach because it offered a beautiful beach, a relaxed atmosphere, an exciting bay for kayaking and even a famous State Park close by, all in an area that offers entertainment and easy access.
