About The Owner

A lovely retired couple from Ohio!

The Owner purchased this condo in 1978

Why The Owner chose South Island

My husband and I purchased this unit pre-construction many years ago. We have enjoyed spending time together and with our families and have created many lasting memories. This location was ideal because it is steps from one of the most beautiful beaches we've visited, and the community was inviting and friendly.

What makes this condo unique

Over the years we have enjoyed having our own home away from home while enjoying morning walks on the beautiful beach, building sand castles with our grandchildren, taking afternoon swims in the pool, and preparing many fun meals while watching the sun set on the beach.

The condo is in a great location on the best section of Ft Myers Beach. The sun, the sand and the proximity of nice restaurants was wonderful. Everyone of the other tenants we met were very friendly. The condo accommodations were very nice. We would definitely stay again.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family (two adults and two kids, ages 18 and 14) had a great 2014 Christmas break in Florida at the Ft. Myers Beach condo. We drove from Wisconsin and it was great to have the wonderful sunshine and lovely white beach right outside of the condo. We all really enjoyed the beach, which was just a short walk from the condo. Everyone we met at the condo was very friendly and helpful.

Condo's private pool was very relaxing, however, we missed a hot tub. Condo's pantry was stocked with the necessities--salt, pepper and other seasoning. Plenty of linens and beach towels. New pull-out queen sofa in Living Room. Master bedroom had a king bed. Second bedroom had a queen bed (that wasn't the greatest). No WiFi.

Very gracious owners. Thank you for letting us stay in your condo.

Good location mid-island, nice beach.

  • 3 of 5

The location was good, away from the busy north area, but still a short drive depending on traffic. Condo was as described, but did need a thorough cleaning of furniture, woodwork, and carpets. There were also a few maintenance items. We were there late season, so that may explain the wear and tear.

We did have a minor a/c issue that was dealt with promptly, with the owners very concerned.

As this was a check/cash transaction, we were concerned about fraud. It all worked fine, but the owners could be more forthcoming with information to help alleviate that concern.

Owner's Response: We always appreciate feedback and we definitely are concerned when issues arise, as we were during your stay! We're glad to continually improve our property and experience! There should never be concerns with fraud. Since we are privately owned and a family operation, we do operate on a cash basis. It's a risk for us, too, but please know we are honest and dependable folks as you discovered! We are addressing your concerns with our housekeeping staff and appreciate your feedback! Thank you for choosing our property!
