About Don and Karen Ostendorf

Don and I came to the beach in 2001 and have fallen in love with everything about it. We are now at retired and left Minnesota, where we have lived all of our life. We didn't discover paradise earlier in life so we raised our family in the Midwest. We enjoy sharing our little piece of heaven with all our guests and hearing how much they enjoy it also. I guess our favorite thing is not having to shovel snow! Sincerely, Don&Karen Ostendorf

Don and Karen Ostendorf purchased this condo in 2004

Why Don and Karen Ostendorf chose South Island

We chose Fort Myers Beach because it is nice and warm all year long. Also, we have everything we need here at the beach. Shelling, fishing, a nice beach to walk on, great sunsets, key lime pie, and marguarita's and Publix with the best food and deli around. We can be as busy as we like to be or just relax and enjoy the birds of Florida.

What makes this condo unique

Perfect sunsets, great restaurants, the movie theater, parasailing, shopping, fishing, and great weather all year round.

Guestbook comments from the owner
