About Nathalie Makepeace

My husband and I moved to Fort Myers Beach after falling in love with the beaches, the sunsets, the bird life, the people and the island feeling. After two short years we moved to the East Coast of Florida but could not give up our house. We loved that the house was on the canal with dolphins and manatees swimming by, on a quiet street and yet just a five minute walk to an incredible beach. So, we decided to rent it. We have lived all over the country; Virginia, Connecticut, New York, Ohio, Chicago, DC and Northern California (Germany too) loving all our homes but we hope to retire one day back on Fort Myers Beach! In the meantime we hope all our guest enjoy their stay.

Nathalie and Lewis - Lake Worth, FL.

Nathalie Makepeace purchased this house in 2003

Why Nathalie Makepeace chose South Island

I loved the Key West style of the house and the location so near to one of the most beautiful sugar sand white beaches!

What makes this house unique

The house is on a cul-de-sac and thus has some relaxing views of the back bay which can be enjoyed from the living areas and the large wrap around deck.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We loved the house, especially the pool and the wrap around deck. It was perfect for our dog Maizy who enjoyed barking at the birds...We hope to return next year."

A short walk down the street provides access to the beach where you will find one of the largest and whitest beaches ever. It is amazing...Do not miss the sunsets while sipping your favorite drink from the outdoor beach bar located at the Outrigger Resort! Or enjoy a day at Lover's Key State Park located just a couple minutes south of us. the deserted natural beaches are just beautiful and it is where I find the best shells, especially right after high tide and on the south end. There are so many near by activities. Some include: fishing, kayaking, boating, shelling, biking, para-sailing and jet skiing, motor scooter rentals, golf/miniature golf, shopping (outlet) and great restaurants. A short drive or trolley ride can take you to Times Square, the nearby fun public pier full of shopping, sightseeing, and restaurants. Boat rentals at local marinas are available or bring your own and enjoy the use of the boat dock and lift at the house. Nearby locations to visit include Sanibel and Captiva Islands, and Naples or enjoy local establishments in the city of Fort Myers. But with all of this, just renting a cabana, soaking up the sun and relaxing on the beach is my favorite!

We loved the setting on a quiet street. Spent lots of time poolside, great setting on canal. Saw dolphins in the canal! Beach, walks with dog, restaurants, sunsets, cycling, etc. was all excellent.

Quiet and pleasant place

  • 4 of 5

The house is as described, kitchen well furnished, amazing pool and lots of water toys. The only things that disappointed us are TV very old and very few choice of channel.

The cleaning wasn't done when we arrived but the property manager was easy to contact, and cleaning was finished in the evening.

Nice place, close to beach.

  • 4 of 5

Spacious house, large pool, close to beach. Perfectly equipped house. Wonderful and wide beach section with powdery sand. Only minus point in our opinion is that furnishing is worn out and all a bit old fashioned. Owner contact was very efficient and pleasant.
