When calling ask for Candy Figueroa

CANDY purchased this condo in 2012

Why CANDY chose South Island

After many years of vacationing in this area my wife and I decided to buy and make our condo a home away from home. We decided that our beds at home and on vacation were important to us and so we did just that. We wanted to feel as if we had just left our everyday life at home but still be confortable at night. During the day relax on the lanai or out at the beautiful white sands of Fort Myers Beach. At night just dress up cassually and go across the street to the Happy Hour and enjoy yourselves.

What makes this condo unique

PEACEFULL is the word that comes to mind and if you need anything else it is only a skip and a hop away. From shopping to boating all you need is within walking distance. Two HEATED pools and sun decks to choose from and tennis courts within the complex.

Guestbook comments from the owner


Thanks again for the condo and I am glad you found everything in order. We really enjoyed ourselves, and as you had said the condo had everything we needed and then some! It is the perfect location and we enjoyed being able to walk everywhere.

I will definitely look you up for future visits.

Enjoy your new grandson!

Great location and nicely furnished!

The property had everything we needed for our vacation. The pool was nice and convenient. The unit was very quiet. The owner was very helpful and quick to respond when we added an additional day. Thank you and Happy New Year!

The location, beach access, and pool are wonderful. Although the condo furnishings are a bit dated.

  • 4 of 5

This is our second stay in Bac Bay. We really enjoy the location of the unit. It's in walking distance of shopping, several quality restaurants, and the beach is right across the street. The unit itself has a well equipped kitchen. It's comfortable and clean. I feel the décor/furnishings are a bit dated.

The Wi-Fi connection is unstable and the tv channel package could be upgraded. For the past two seasons we have spent six weeks in the unit, and plan to return next season.

Close to the dream!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here during march 26th to april 9th 2016. Me, my husband our two children at 9 and 4 years old and my parents stayed in the apartment after spending crazy time in Orlando. We had a wonderful stay and really loved the condo. It was perfect for our vacation which was mainly relaxation, beach, and lovely bbq evenings after a busy Orlando stay. We really appreciated the closeness to the beach and also simplicity of just walking outside to the bbq-area. The kitchen was great for dinner preparations for all 6 of us och it was lovely to take a stroll to se the sunset at night. Only minutes away we had CVS and other small stores. Publix was a five minute car ride so also that was easy. We had Pinchers on the beach just a minute walk away were we could se the sunset and have a drink och dinner to a good price.

The two pools were very appreciated by our children, the only thing I found a bit disappointing is that the complex did not really accept the children having a fun time in the pool or outside since the main residents seamed to be seniors. This was not a big deal but it still was a bit disappointing to have to tell my children that they had to be really calm and not play in the pool only swim.

The apartment was certainly fully equipped and had everything you can expect. We had a wonderful time and can highly recommend this place for vacation if you just want to relax have the closest beach access. I would recommend to rent bikes because that is definitely the best way to get around and especially if you want to go north on the island to the more crazy parts. A car ride took forever and parking was a mess up there compared to having our own parking close to our condo.

Me and my family would definitely go back and stay here if we visit Fort Myers again - we simply loved it! Candy was a great help and a super nice guy that helped us and answered on all our questions both before, during and after our stay.

I hope I can go back again and in that case I will se if this condo is available :)

Bac Bay was better than we imagined. The brochure doesn't do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

This was not our first trip to Fort Myers Beach area. We knew where the condo was located before we signed up. The location is in walking distance of everything we needed to enjoy an extended stay in the area. The beach, CVS, Publix, choices for dining, the trolley, swimming pool, and more, are all within walking distance of the condo. The property was not only clean and well maintained, but it had all the utensils of a cook's kitchen. The Wi-Fi and cable were very reliable. It was well equipped with linens and towels. Washer and dryer added to the convenience. Our owner was very gracious. The property was clean and well maintained. He was in the area, so any questions or concerns we had were addressed right away. He was nearby by when we needed him and very responsive. We would highly recommend this owner and his properties. We plan to return next season.
