About Carmen Bowron

My husband and I have been visiting Fort Myers Beach from Niagara on the Lake, Ontario, for 20 years. We have both travelled extensively, however this is the place we come to completely relax. It has become our 'home away from home' and we have made wonderful memories here. Our children are now 19 and 15 and also love coming here. We finally thought the time was right to purchase a condo of our own.

My husband enjoys golfing and especially fishing on the beach. My passion is tennis, so both of our needs are met!

We hope you enjoy Fort Myers Beach and our condo as much as we do.

Carmen Bowron purchased this condo in 2012

Why Carmen Bowron chose South Island

The beach and the view is unparalled. It is also close to the airport, Sanibel, Captiva, Bonita and Naples.

What makes this condo unique

The most wonerful part of our unit is being able to watch a spectacular sun-rise toward Bonita and sunset over the gulf of Mexico.

A Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This place was just as described. So beautiful and ocean front views. Condo very clean and comfortable. Owners were very pleasant and made our stay very easy and comfortable. Great communication. My husband and I enjoyed our coffee on the balcony with sightings of dolphins every morning. We enjoyed a beautiful sunset on that same balcony every night. Pool area was very nice. It was quiet but not far from Times square and a little action if you wanted. Edison and Ford winter estates was not very far at all and a great place to see . Key West ferry express is really close and was a great way to travel to Key West for the day.The beach was amazing. We found some very beautiful shells and sand dollars. We would definitely stay here again. Chris and Carmen Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful place and helping to make our vacation very enjoyable and relaxing.

As promised

  • 5 of 5

This condo really is perfect for a couples' get away. Tastefully decorated and quite comfortable. Everything you need and a little more. We saw a lot of birds native to the area and dolphins outside every morning - no need to use binoculars; they were close to shore.

Absolutely Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic condo in a beautiful location. It is even better than the pictures suggest. Everything you could possibly need is supplied as well as great little touches like beach brolly, chairs and coolers. The view from the balcony is breathtaking and hard to tear yourself away from. Dolphins and tropical birds can be seen every day. The resort is immaculate and the beach , well that's something else again.

The owners are very easy to deal with and more than helpful.

I really did not stray too far or want to come home.

I almost do not want to tell others about this place but will just say to those who follow, please, please look after this magical place !

Connecticut couple

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our first, and hopefully not last, stay at your beautiful condo. The condo exceeded our expectations! It was neat and clean and very well stocked for just about any outdoor activity. We appreciated the owners timely response to any questions we had. We had a couple from Naples stop by to visit and they were so impressed that they expressed interest in renting the condo. Thanks so much for a great couple of weeks. We'll be dreaming about those sunsets til next year!
