Bring your tennis rackets because there are 4 clay tennis courts for you to enjoy and an area for you to grill out.

The post office is located there and CVS and 7-11 are just a few steps further down. If boating is your thing you are in luck with Fish-Tale Marina located across the street next to Santini Plaza. They have several types of boat rentals there along with dolphin cruises, sunset tours, fishing charters, ad kayak rentals.

The trolley picks up just outside the tennis club and for a minimal price you can ride the length of the beach along with some places on the mainland on one end and lovers key state park on the other.

The price you see is the price you pay to us. Included is the 11% Tax and $95 cleaning fee. There is a $250 Refundable Security Deposit returned 14 days after your stay.

About Rick and Gayle S

We are a retired couple who visited Ft. Myers for the past 2 years and decided we wanted to live here full time sometime in the future.

Rick and Gayle S purchased this condo in 2017

Why Rick and Gayle S chose South Island

We visited several condos and loved the view from this 11th floor unit.

This is a great location and you should be very happy here .

What makes this condo unique

Beautiful views of the Gulf and the Bay and only steps away from the beach. Take the elevator to the bottom floor, go out the door and less than 100 steps to the sand and water.

Wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

Everything we might need was provided, including coolers, beach chairs, umbrellas and beach towels. The condo was great with wonderful views. We picked up some food and cooked multiple meals as cookware, etc was also provided. There were great restaurants right across the steeet when we didn't want to cook. The pool was just downstairs and the beach was a short walk down the path. We saw dolphins and a manatee swimming at the beach. Shelling was great too. The beach was never crowded! There was plenty of room to find a nice spot. The marina is across the street. You can rent a boat or go on dolphin tours. A short drive down the road is a park where you can canoe or kayak. I'm pretty sure the trolley goes there. Gayle provided all the information I needed ahead of time. We didn't have any problems with the condo and the people staying around us were all really nice.

Clean accommodations, quiet residents, beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

A lovely condo unit with good views. Clean. The owners take great care. The pool is warm and wonderful. The common grill is in good shape and sanitary. The beach is steps away with white sands. Laundry facilities are affordable. I wish we could have stayed longer.

Great condo, beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was spacious and had everything we needed. The views were gorgeous!! We saw dolphins everyday. This condo is located on the quieter end of the island which was nice, sometime we felt like we had he whole place/beach to ourself! Very relaxing. The owners were wonderful to work with as well. We would love to come back.
