About Dana Zuber
The story all began when my family moved from New Jersey to Florida back in 1980! My whole family is still living here. Unfortunately I had to move back to N.J. after college- to work in NYC . My husband and I found this gem back in 2001. We loved the idea of coming down and spending time with my brothers - and their families and for our kids to know their cousins.Unfortunately due to our busy lives we can't get down to Florida more than a few times a year- so we love the idea of sharing our home with you! I have made our home comfortable and easy for all- who arrive. I love to entertain so you will find a fully equipped kitchen with all the items you need to host a family gathering! I hope you enjoy our house as much as we do!
Dana Zuber purchased this House in 2001
Why Dana Zuber chose South Island
I loved the idea of having a private residence near the beach- without all the chaos the north end of the beach can bring at various times of the year. The canal waterway to open water is a quick one to the gulf( @15 minutes which is Really Great-) Important question to ask if you are renting a boat on the island.. The location of our beach and the actual beach itself- is beautiful and a tranquil wide open space( pictures are on my site). I love the location- walk to everything while still private!
What makes this House unique
Location - Location- Location- Easy on and off the island in high season (Dec- April) by traveling in and out of the south end of the island- ( highly recommend) vs traveling over Mantanzas Bridge- The Beach where our home is located is Awesome! truly one of the prettiest beaches I have ever seen. The home is situated on a quiet street but right in the center of a lot of activity -- which enables you to retreat to a calm haven after you have had your fill of all there is to do!!

Perfect location and close to the beach!
We had a great stay. The house was perfect for our family and a short walk to the beach. Dana was wonderful and even checked in with us to make sure we had everything we needed. Loved the pool and location was great! The kitchen was pretty much stocked with anything you would need. Thank you, Dana for a great stay!
Thanks for staying with us! I am glad you were able to enjoy the house and all it has to offer.
Great location with the most beautiful beach around!!
Thank you!! Come back when you can - you were excellent guests!!
The house is beautifully appointed, clean, and comfortable. Everything was in working order. The outside pool area was wonderful. I have zero complaints except that we had to come home.
Dana, the home owner, is easy to work with and prompt with all communication. She has provided a comprehensive file of things to do and her personal recommendations. We took her up on the Mound house and it was worth the small donation/entry fee.
The house is centrally located on Ft Meyers Beach making it pretty much equidistant from anyplace you might want to go such as restaurants and shops. I highly recommend the South Beach Grille which is in walking distance of the house. There is also a farmers market in the same plaza and a Publix is close by. The beach access is 150 ish yards away with a fun walk through bushes on a seemingly secret path. The beach is HUGE! Also, the next door neighbors on both sides are lovely and quiet.
I definitely recommend this house to couples looking for a quiet retreat after a busy day or a family ( lots of beach and pool toys provided as well as a safety fence to put around the pool). We didn’t fish but there were lots of jumpers in the canal behind the house and the boat dock looked like an inviting place to toss in a line.
Thanks Dana for the wonderful home!
Thanks for the Review!
Thanks for pointing out some of the highlights of the house. I am glad you enjoyed the location- it was the big reason we purchased the house way back when
Everything about the hose was wonderful! Having our own private pool to come home to after a hot day on the beach was the best. Beach supplies and a cart to haul everything to the beach and the beach a short walk from the house. What more could you ask for? Will definitely be coming back to this home for another vacation.
Thanks so much for the review!
Yes the pool is super and private so that is always a good thing .
Thanks for being excellent guests !
We loved it!!
We are sad as we are packing up for the long drive home. We really enjoyed our vacation. The amenities you provided were off the chart and we really appreciated everything. Loved the pool and the screened-in area--no bugs. The grill, the washer/dryer, the kitchen had everything we could possible need. Neighbors were friendly, weather was gorgeous. Everything was just as described. Three bedrooms, perfect for 6 adults. Thank you
You and your family were excellent guests!
