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!!

Fun In The Sun

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic house! Close to the beach and fun. We rode our bikes to Time Square everyday. The House had everything needed for a great vacation. We want to do it again next year.

FANTASTIC/ Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

You never know what you are going to get when you rent a home online. This home is perfect! Clean, roomy, and had every essential you could need. The owner made her self available before , during and after the trip just in case we needed anything. The backyard was so nice. New Grill, nice furniture and an amazing pool that always was the perfect temperature. My trip was during spring break (the busiest time of the year) the homes location is near everything you needed... but best of all far enough down the strip to avoid most of the traffic, but not too far to get to the square, which we did every day! I would totally go back and would highly recommend this fantastic rental to anyone interested. Definite FIVE STARS!

Harmony House was wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

A perfect vacation house. Better that the pictures. Morning coffee on the patio, then a walk on the beach, afternoon swim in the heated pool, an evening walk on the beach to watch the sunset and cocktails at 'Pinchers'. Perfect!! Great location, you can walk to restaurants and shopping. This was our third year renting on Fort Myers Beach, we decided to get a bigger house even though it was just my husband and me. Well, since we had room we had family and friends stopping by to stay a few days on their way to somewhere else in Florida. We rented a pontoon one day at the marina behind the shopping center. We check out the bay and canals, then docked at the stat park for lunch and fishing. I highly recommend this adventure. The neighbors are friendly, we talked about their lovely garden. Dana was great, immediately responded to any question before we arrived and texted us to see if we needed anything during our stay. Even though, everything you need was already supplied. She also sent a lot of information on all types of activities.

We have been using VRBO for many years, but this was one of the best rental. I hope we will be able to rent again next year. Thanks Dana.

Wonderful house, very close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this house!

We love staying on Ibis street as it is a very short walk to get to the Fort Myers Beach from the house. You just walk less than 2 blocks and you are on the beach.

The pool is great and it is heated. We loved to sit around the pool and watch our kids swim all the time.

In the garage they have many pool toys/floaties available. They also have beach chairs, sand castle buckets and shovels so you are ready for the beach and you don't have to buy or pack your own stuff.

One of the best things about this house is that as you sit by the pool you can clearly see the canal and we saw Dolphins swimming in the canal twice during our one week stay! Super fun.

It is also on the south side of the street so that the pool area gets sun longer during the day.

We recommend staying at this house

Spring Break 2018

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 loved staying at Harmony House! Everything was exactly as described and pictured. It was perfect for our needs, and we had everything we needed. We loved that it was a short walk to beach access, and that there was a beach wagon, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, and beach toys all for our use. That made it so much easier to travel. The beach was beautiful and was very wide. It had lots of space to play frisbee/football etc without bothering anyone. We also loved the pool/lanai area at the house, and the view of the canal right out the back door. Very relaxing and peaceful! I should also mention how clean the house was when we arrived. That is very important to me! I also appreciated the owner contacting me to make sure everything was going well. Overall, we had a great and memorable trip, much due to the fact we had such a great space to come back to everyday.
