About the property

A perfect beach getaway spot, on the quiet end of the island.

This recently updated condo is equipped with everything you need for a memorable vacation! A gorgeous view greets you as you enter, and it gets even better as you walk out on the balcony directly facing the Gulf of Mexico. A full kitchen, featuring granite counters and full size stainless steel appliances (including a dishwasher) is stocked with cooking, serving, and storage supplies. Living room features new furnishings, including a 55" HDTV, preferred cable package and high speed secure WiFi in this unit. A comfy king bed appoints the bedroom, and views of the gulf can be taken in from every window. The roomy bathroom is topped off with a large walk-in shower, plush linens, and also includes a hairdryer, iron, ironing board, and more. Quality beach chairs, umbrella, cooler, and beach towels are all here to make your beach vacation everything it should be. Condo complex features a wonderful pool, park-like sunbathing area (in addition to the beach), tennis courts, horse shoe pits, shuffle board, and is walking distance to several restaurants, shopping, and movie theater. If more activity is desired, simply hop on the trolley to Times Square or Lovers Key, rent a bicycle, kayak, power boat, or visit one of the beach vendors to set up parasailing, jet skis, etc. PLEASE NOTE: During "Peak Season" we are limited to check-in/out on Saturdays only.

About Vicki & Rick Vohl

We have been enjoying Ft. Myers Beach for many years, vacationing from the frigid temps of the northern states. We relocated to Southwest Florida and still found ourselves desiring to get away to the beach. We purchased a condo at Estero Beach & Tennis for us to use and rent in April of 2016. It was such a pleasure to share our piece of paradise with others, that we decided to purchase another condo with a direct gulf view.

Vicki & Rick Vohl purchased this condo in 2017

Why Vicki & Rick Vohl chose South Island

The condo is bright and happy. From the moment you walk in it just seems to help leave the stress behind. The view is wonderful and the sounds of the waves is even better.

What makes this condo unique

Rick is terrified of heights... so we prefer a lower level condo. What we learned is that the sounds of the beach and ocean are more vibrant, and we love the green lush vegetation and palm trees that might be missed on the higher floors.

My wife and I, wanted to say thank you. Your place is amazing and the amenities were above our expectations. We spent every day enjoying the beach. Our favorite restaurants were Skye and Doc Fords but we also made many meals in the condo.

If we have the opportunity to come back we'd love to stay here again. The sunsets from the balcony were outstanding. Thanks again for the hospitality !

Great property. Updated kitchen and bath. View of the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Property was the most well stocked condo we have ever stayed in. Everything for the beach is included; chairs, umbrella, cooler, shell collection bags. Many misc. items like sunscreen, Band-Aids, sunburn lotion included. Nice large television with all cable channels. AC works well and kept unit cool. Condo is convenient to strip mall across the street, as well as trolly stop. Taking the trolly to Ft. Myers Beach saves the hassle of paying for parking. $3/hr in some spots.

Would stay again.

Loved the condo, perfect southern island location, would definitely stay again

  • 5 of 5

Easy booking process and check in. Vicki called our first day to make sure everything thing was going well. The condo was bright, beachy and very comfortable for 2. The property is beautiful and spacious. The beach is nice, a walk to the south offers more privacy and great shelling. Shops and restaurants right across the street.
