About Bob Woods

We spend much of our time in Northern Michigan as well as Omaha, NE. I'm a VP with a Fortune 500 company and my wife is a realtor. When time permits, we also love to enjoy time in Southwest Florida on Fort Myers Beach at our condo. As we get older and retire, we will officially become snowbirds and winter on Fort Myers Beach. Until then, we rent our condo to wonderful couples and families from around the world.

Bob Woods purchased this Condo in 2007

Why Bob Woods chose South Island

We simply love the views of the Bay from the lanais and many other areas of the condo as well as all of the birds, fish and wildlife that come with our wonderful bay-view setting. We love being on the fifth floor as this enhances the bay-view even more.

What makes this Condo unique

First and foremost, being nestled on the bay, the entire Estero Bayside association area is very quiet and relaxing without much noise or activity. Second, our condo is also very close to many great shops, restaurants and bars as well as the beach, all of which are within a short walking distance. Thus, we feel we have best location on the island.

                                                                Superb condo rental

                                                                We were really impressed with this condo. It was a great location on the southern part of the island and handy to everything. The layout and furnishings were first-rate and the unit was extremely spacious, room for us and our visitors too. We thought we would prefer a unit on the beach (it was very close and an easy walk) but in fact the view of the lagoon and the many birds made this location even better! I highly recommend this for anyone wishing to holiday at Fort Myers Beach.

                                                                Enjoyed the stay at this 3 bedroom condo. The master was separated from the other 2 bedrooms .

                                                                Sylvia T.

                                                                Tastefully decorating throughout the condo included televisions in bedrooms and main area. The views from both balconies were amazing. We enjoyed the pool and a short walk to the beach. Located close to Sanitini plaza with great restaurants and fresh market one day a week. We rented a charter boat right behind the plaza for some fishing. We also enjoyed a dolphin cruise. Everything you need is within walking distance. The other renters and owners were very nice. They even had a clam bake at the pool barbecue! It was nice to come back to relax in this spacious condo!

                                                                Beautiful and peaceful

                                                                Donna H.

                                                                The layout of this unit was beautiful. The size of the unit is amazing. There is plenty of space for every one. I enjoyed the location of the unit in the condo. It was private and quiet. The kitchen was fully stocked with utensils and most items (if not all items) that you need. The neighbors were friendly and helpful. There is a pool, hot tub and a basic exercise room on the property. The beach and trolley stop was in a manageable walk from the condo. I felt very safe at this unit - day or night. There is a code to enter the building. I would highly recommend this unit and plan to return in the near future.

                                                                Well appointed upscale beauty

                                                                What a nice place. Very roomy and exceptionally well appointed. The view of the back bay is outstanding. The walk to the beach is about 5 minutes and you walk right by a Pinchers beach bar.

                                                                The condo community itself is homelike with a nice pool, hot tub and clubhouse with wifi and a nice television plus a workout room with a universal, bike, treadmill and elliptical.

                                                                The layout is very nice, with the master bedroom well away from the guest bedrooms, one which is en suite for even more privacy.

                                                                For a long term stay, this unit is like a second home.

                                                                Great Time.....Quiet and Relaxing

                                                                Bob W.-

                                                                We had a great stay in this beautiful condo. It was a very quiet and relaxing environment......with lots to do very close by!

                                                                Second time at the condo.

                                                                Gene M.

                                                                Well maintained with nice furnishings. A good workout room with modern equipment that I used often. Also used the tennis courts that are in good condition. The pool area is small but adequate. End of street so the location is void of traffic noise. Neighbors are friendly and helpful. There were a couple minor issues with the condo that the owner was quick to rectify. The only negative to report is the property management office was less than impressive. I would certainly return to the condo for a stay and can easily recommend it for a vacation.
