About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4

Our condo is located on the widest part of Ft. Myers Beach. The white sand extends for 1/4 mile before reaching the ocean. The perfect spot to relax with a good book and plenty of room for beach sports and activities.

Features include:

* The fully furnished kitchen has been updated with new cabinets, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances.

* One king bed (master bdr) and 1 queen bed (guest bdr)

* One en-suite master bathroom and 1 full guest bathroom

* Separate dining room with table that seats six

* Three flat screen TVs, high speed wireless internet

* Full size washer and dryer with extensive supply of towels, linens and more (including beach towels)

* Three balconies overlooking the beach, the pool and the back bay

* Beach chairs and beach towels for your use.

Island Winds opened a new swimming pool in January 2018. It is beautiful and a very popular place to hang out. New landscaping adds to the ambience. Now work is being done on the parking lot including replacing the carports which were damaged during Hurricane Irma.

We have begun making some changes to the condo starting with new window treatments throughout. We have had a new air conditioner installed that is much more efficient. Currently we are preparing to have new sliding doors, front door and bathroom windows installed during the summer - "off season" We are also having the tile replaced in the kitchen, bathrooms, and hallway.

Watch for new photos later this summer when everything is completed.

About Roger & Laura Jacobsen

We are retired and like to travel. One of our favorite spots is Fort Myers Beach. For several years we have spent some time there in the winter but find it increasingly more difficult to get "more time" on our favorite beach. This year when we were vacationing, this property came up for sale and it is exactly where we wanted to stay. Island Winds is wonderful and we feel so comfortable there. The people are nice, we are close to everything and we have several friends who stay there or own there.

Why Roger & Laura Jacobsen chose South Island

It is located on the widest section of Fort Myers Beach. We can walk to many things - restaurants, shopping, theater, etc.

We love to walk the beach and can go 2 1/2 miles South (to the bridge), or 4 miles North to downtown where you can have a lovely breakfast, lunch or do some shopping. There is a trolley that will bring you back to the condo: 75 cents, or 35 cents for seniors.

What makes this condo unique

Privacy is the main benefit. Even though Island Winds is situated on the beach it sits far enough back that we don't have to deal with beach "traffic."

In January 2018 the new swimming pool opened. The parking lot is being paved and new carports installed due to damage during Hurricane Irma.

This is the perfect place to stay! Great views from Lanai. Close to so many nice restaurants. This condo has been updated and we slept like babies. Beaches are so white and clean. A very well maintained complex. Plan on going again next year! You will not be disappointed! We hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
