About Jorge

My wife and I are from Miami and we love the beaches of Fort Myers. We fell in love with this area while visiting family and decided we wanted to retire here in the future.

Jorge purchased this condo in 2009

Why Jorge chose South Island

We purchased this unit because we like the quiet side of Fort Myers Beach as well as the unique aspect of the wildlife right on our doorstep. We like to take long walks daily and this is the perfect place to do so. Beginning 2015 we will no longer use any management companies , we will manage our condo, in efforts to keep prices down and improve service for our guests.

What makes this condo unique

There are many unique restaurants here many within walking distance. Jet skiing is available a five minute walk down the beach as well as a Tiki bar of a nearby hotel.There is a marina acrossthe street if you want to go out sightseeing or fishing.This unit has one of the best views in the complex, you see the ocean through all of the windows, even while lying in bed!!!

Ideal location on the island & in the complex!

  • 5 of 5

I feel so lucky to have been able to rent this condo for myself and my 2 children (19 &15)!!! The location of the complex is towards the South end of the island, so more quite than the busy end, which we so enjoyed...and wonderful shell hunting! Was an easy drive to get to different restaurants & activities! The location of this condo within it's complex is perfect! It is on the corner facing right out to the gulf, so fabulous view, and on the 9th floor so not blocked to the side either and we were able to see all the fireworks on the island for New Year's!

Great views but

  • 2 of 5

Be aware that the damage fee is actually a way to up the price. The fee is non refundable, even if you do no damage? The owner said it was for incidentals, there was 1 garbage bag, 10 drops of dish soap, 1 roll of TP, no umbrella for the beach and the chairs for the beach are nasty, filthy, even though he said they had been replaced... We called house keeping woman about dish soap, trash bags and no umbrella, she said what was there is what we had. The sheets are thin and pilling, the bed is a firm mattress on slats no box springs. Sign in the unit says you will be charged for excess laundry of more than a few towels or bedding, and you are to strip the bed before you leave or you will be charged.

Wifi is 1.5 mbs service, it works for email but that is it.

That said, it is a nice, clean unit with great views. The non refund on the damage deposit is my own fault for believing that if you did no damage you would be refunded.. So be aware..

Owner's Response: We regret that you did not take the time to read the contract before signing it. It clearly states what the non refundable damage waiver fee covers and that it is obviously non refundable . You should have contacted me if you did not understand any part of it. Not a week after your stay. The bed room set was purchased at Rooms To Go in 2014 , a gardenia white collection model. It is a very comfortable platform bed. No box spring. The comforter and sheets are brand new ,from Bed Bath And Beyond. As for supplies.There is a starter one week supply of toilet paper, paper towels, etc. An extra supply of toilet paper in the new bath room vanity, if you run out. Dish soap and paper towels are under the kitchen sink. All the policies were listed in the contract.Such as the stripping of the sheets at departure, which by the way just about all rentals function the same way. It seems that your review was tainted by the fact that you were upset over the non refundable fee. We spoke to the cleaning person and I apologize if she may have been a bit curt with you.She explained to me that ,she told you to come to the first floor ,were she lives to get the extra supply. She was unable to run it up to you at that time. We are in a transitional phase at this time, we are no longer with a management co.,as we explained to you earlier. We take all advise seriously and we will correct any shortcomings. What we still offer though is a clean , quiet and comfortable condo with incredible views. If there were any miscommunications. I hope you still were able to enjoy your stay in our home and did not overlook the most important things of your vacation . Thank You Please use your reviews responsibly !

Condo was very comfortable, great location, well maintained. Would have preferred direct access to the beach. Service by Distinctive Vacations was not as friendly as expected.

Review for property 335959

  • 2 of 5

The view from the condo was excellent. Although beach chairs were rusty and the beach umbrella was broken. No beach towels provided. We flew so couldn't bring our own beach equipment with us...Condo looked a bit dirty in the bathroom and kitchen areas (i.e., the utensils/and drawers didn't look very clean and the paper towel hanger was disgusting; bath was in need of paint (updating). The garbage disposal sparked and we needed to contact the management company to report it. The bed frame was held together on one end by door hinges! We killed cockroaches during the last couple days there/other bugs crawling around too. Only a few hangers provided. Not happy with it except for the direct view of Gulf! Would not recommend this unit to relative or friend.

Owner's Response: We are happy to receive constructive criticism on our unit and we have replaced the beach chairs that had rust on them. As for your other observations, our management company informs us that no complaints were received re garbage disposal etc. The only contact they had was your request to check out late. Unfortunately , you have to understand, others coming after you cannot be kept waiting. In the future, it is always best to contact the manager if something is missing such as towels as there is a problem with people removing towels from the unit. Management is very prompt and would have brought your missing items asap. In, conclusion, we are sorry you did not enjoy the new granite kitchen, flooring, tv and furniture and only saw fit to mention the bathroom was not new. As far as bugs, I can assure you there are none as we are three girls with a phobia of bugs and we are there quite frequently.
