We are located on the third floor at tree-top level. You can see more detail at this height without binoculars (Compare the view to sitting on the 50 yard line, near the field, at a football game.). Also, the gentle action of the ocean waves can be heard in the condominium at night with the windows open. If you want a direct Gulf-front close to the action, you need to look no further. Our superior reviews speak for themselves.
Below are the highlights of the property stated simply with more detailed information below. This will give you a quick look and won’t take up your time while you search for the perfect vacation condominium. Look no more, you have found it.

Several reviews, all five (5) star, from previous guests that will let you know what they think about the property.
This Gulf-front unit has a view of the gulf that is sure to please! The long side of the balcony faces the Gulf. Views of the Gulf include Sanibel and Captiva Islands and panoramic sunsets, painted with a palette of colors. Enjoy a different show every evening from the lanai/ balcony.
Breakfast on the lanai/ balcony will include dolphins swimming close to shore, pelicans “dive bombing” into the Gulf for their breakfast. Ospreys (Sea Eagles) and an occasional Bald Eagle will be seen flying over the Critical Wild Life Area, located out front.

The Gulf of Mexico, Boating (Full Service Marina Located Across The Street (Boat Rentals), World-Class Shelling, Lover's Key State Park located three miles south, view Sanibel Island from the balcony
Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: My wife and I love our Fort Myers Beach vacation home and welcome you to share it. The abundant wildlife, climate, the Gulf of Mexico, superb eateries, and the friendly people, make this area of Southwest Florida a vacation paradise. We began coming to the area over 30 years ago. Before buying this vacation home, we visited several of the islands in the Caribbean. Our last trip in 2000, to British Tortola convinced us to invest our money in our vacation home. Come and explore this area and I am sure you will agree with us. Warmest regards, Wayne and Elise Longino
Why the Owner Chose South Island, Fort Myers Beach, FL, USA:
This area of Southwest Florida has abundant wildlife and unspoiled beaches. Our beach-front is habitat for nesting turtles, birds, and other wildlife. The State of Florida has declared the beach area in front, one of 18 Critical Wildlife Areas (CWA), located in the state. The Audubon Society has declared our beach-front as “Little Estero Island”. Cars are not allowed to drive on the beach and all boat traffic must stay offshore at least 500 feet. Enjoy an unspoiled beach that is a private area.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The shelling here is world-class. Since the ocean floor of the Gulf is gradually sloping, shells wash ashore with each tidal change. You will find many hand-made shell treasures in our vacation home made by Elise, an avid conchologist (collector of shells). There are a diverse array of mollusks, bivalve, and gastropods, for the avid conchologist. In addition, there are many books to help you identify shells and how to clean and preserve them. Take a walk along our beach and you may be able to find your own “diamond in the rough”. The view of the Gulf from the lanai/porch is spectacular. Abundant wildlife, the gentle wave action of the Gulf can be heard inside the condominium.
