Why Tom Mertz chose South Island

Jan and I are boaters and we love observing the marina activities during the day and it is so quiet at night. We also love the convenience of all the shops, restaurants and bars withing walking distance.

Our buildings were completed in 2000 and are newer than most of the other buildings on Fort Myers Beach. The owners association has done a wonderful job of maintaining and improving the property.

What makes this condo unique

We love the Fish House Restaurant right next door. We enjoy the 86 degree pool water all year long, surprisingly, it has to be cooled in the summer. We also enjoy the hot tub.

Sometimes we can see dolphin and manatees right from the condo.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the use of your condo. It is a beautiflu place with a wonderful location and terrific decorating. We had a wonderful time and very much appreciated the use of your Florida home. Tom & Kris

Great location in wonderful condo

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed a number of different places on the Gulf, but this was definitely the best. Everything is beautifully decorated, immaculate , well-equipped, and organized. The view is fantastic. There are a nice variety of restaurants/bars within walking distance. Tom & Jan are great to work with. I hope to return next year.

Wonderful 2 month Stay

  • 5 of 5

We rented the condo from mid January to mid March and were very happy with our stay, This was by far the best condo of our rentals over the last 4 years in Ft. Myers Beach as it was beautifully furnished, extremely well equipped, very comfortable, and in an excellent location. The beach, shops, and restaurants were all within walking distance. The view of the marina provided unlimited entertainment. The pool area with hot tub and BBQ facilities added to the enjoyment of a long stay. The owner, Tom, was easily accessible for any small issues that needed to be addressed. We would highly recommend this condo!

Palm Harbor

  • 5 of 5

One of the nicest condos we have ever stayed in, communication with Tom & Jan (owners) was fantastic, the condo was clean, great location and the harbor view from the lanai (could also see the gulf) was very relaxing. All appliances worked and all tenants in the condo association were very friendly and helpful especially at the large heated pool and hot tub. We would highly recommend this condo for anyone looking for a relaxed and stress free vacation in a first class location and well appointed condo.

Wonderful Two Weeks!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 2 weeks in Tom's condo. The location was perfect for us. Walking to many stores and resteraunts is one of the reasons we loved the location. 5 minutes you can be on the beach! His condo had all we needed for our stay. We did not want for anything. It was exactly what he had advertised. The Internet was not working properly and he came down the next day and put in a new router and we were up and running. He was very accommodating and wanting to make sure we had all we needed for a perfect vacation. Overlooking the marina makes for lots to watch on the beautiful lanai including the Dolphins we saw on 2 occasions. Pat and Gary Becker Hartville Ohio

We just arrived back home after renting this condo for February, 2015 and it was "lovely". It was so well furnished and everything that you possibly needed was at your fingertips. It also was in such a great location to walk to shops, restaurants and just a block to the beach. The view from the lanai was spectacular with all the boats coming and going from the marina. The pool was beautiful and the people we met there were extremely nice. The owners were very accommodating and helpful for us. We hope to possibly rent this unit again someday in the near future.
