Hi my name is Cindy. Im from Boston. I have two kids and we love Ft Myers Beach. We try to get there at least two or three times a year. We have been vacationing here for many years. I really love the West coast of Florida. We spend lots of time walking the beach shelling, crabbing and sight-seeing. We are very active love to bike on the beach, renting kayaks and the sunset cruises are awesome. The weather is insanely nice. If you can believe it in the last three years on every trip it never rained the weather is always awesome.

CINDY purchased this condo in 2011

Why CINDY chose South Island

I love Ft Myers Beach I will live here someday!! The condos South End of Beach is an location is awesome...we are so close to many other great beaches. Day trips to Barefoot Beach, Lovers Key, Vanderbilt Beach.. and more... Bonita Springs and Naples a short drive away. We walk to over fish tail marina and rent kayaks. We also rented a pontoon boat for half day $200. So much fun

What makes this condo unique

South End of Beach location. Easy access to Bonita Springs, Naples & RSW. Walks on the beach,watching the sunset and seeing the dolphins The Gulf is truly amazing!

You don't need a car. The trolley that runs up and down Estero Blvd is very convenient you don't need a rental car.

Excellent Location

  • 4 of 5

We have vacationed at Ft. Myers Beach for the past 8 Christmas seasons. The easy access to dining at the Santini Plaza & the beach makes this an excellent rental. The pool was another plus. We hope to return soon.

A Great Place to Stay - Our Third Year Here

  • 5 of 5

I would echo all the positive comments below. The pool, easy access to the beach and Lover's Key, and the nearby Santini Plaza are big pluses in our book. We brought an inexpensive king converter kit and made the two twin beds into a king. We had previously rented in December, and wondered if the island would be crowded in February, but it turned out not to be very crowded at all down on this end of the island. Currently driving off the island to the north can be very slow on weekdays due to road construction near the area of the library, so we usually took the southern bridge which goes past Lover's Key. We highly recommend this condo and will be returning next year.

Five minute walk to: beach, shopping, restraints, marina, and fresh market. The property was very well maintained. My favorite place was the pool it was awesome. Communication with Cindy was very prompt and helpful. The only thing we missed was our king size bed. The Beached Whale was our favorite restaurant. Very good quality for the money. Thanks Cindy.

A Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo for a Christmas stay with our two daughters, son-in-law and grandson, and it was perfect!! It has everything as described on the website and even exceeded our expectations. It's clean and convenient, and located on a beautiful part of Ft. Myers Beach. (We had rented a few years ago on Sanibel and found that FMB is even nicer, but more reasonably priced.) The pool is fantastic, the beach is nearby, and a mall is steps away with nice restaurants and other amenities. We rented bikes from the really nice folks at the Dolphin Inn and biked a short distance to Lover's Key, which was beautiful. Our daughters rented kayaks next door from "Crazy Woman Kayak" and had an amazing afternoon. For 25 cents, we rode the Trolley to a restaurant on the North end of FMB called Nervous Nellie's. Our vacation was really fabulous, and the condo was comfy - kitchen is small but has everything you need, and we ate several meals on the screened-in lanai. Santa Maria is quiet, but neighbors were friendly and nice. This was great!!

Great vacation place !

The condo was beautiful and had everything we needed. Was within walking distance of restaurants and shopping . Could rent a boat right at the plaza beside the condo. The beach was great and right across the street. Can take the trolley to any place on the beach. We really enjoyed our stay.
