Property description

On seventeen acres of swaying palm trees and seven miles of gleaming white sugar sand, known as the 'Safest Beach in the World' because of its gentle sloping shore and lack of currents.

Our condo is a one bedroom studio with a king-size bed, with pull-out sofa/bed in the living room. The kitchen is remodeled and fully-equipped. Towels and linens are included. We have a private secure Wi-Fi in the unit, and HD TV with cable and DVD player. Heated pool, gas grills, and tournament-quality clay tennis courts are located on the property. Plenty of free parking.

Most importantly, you directly overlook the Gulf of Mexico from the tenth floor living room, bedroom, and balcony. Sunsets are breathtaking. The 17 acre property runs along the white sand beach, and is adjacent to a private grassy lawn. A nearby estuary is a favorite spot for water bird photographers.

On the other side of the property you can walk across the street to restaurants, Santorini Shopping Plaza, Fish Tale Marina (where you can rent boats, pontoons and fishing gear, with a fishing guide, if you like). Nearby is an executive 18-hole golf course. You can catch a passing trolley and tour the entire island for 50 cents!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We own a real estate company in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and we live in Minnetonka. We spend may weekends at our cabin in northern Minnesota, and we love spending time with our three children, and our grandchildren. If and when we retire, we'll stay in Minnesota near our family, but Ft. Meyers Beach will always be our paradise hideaway.

Why the Owner Chose South Island, Fort Myers Beach, FL, USA:
We love winter get-aways, and we prefer Florida's Gulf over the dry southwestern U.S. We've been to many areas of Florida, but we decided some years ago to visit only Ft. Meyers Beach. We think it's Florida's best kept secret! It's not overly-developed, but very visitor friendly, with it's island culture in tact.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We like to cook and BBQ, which is very easy at our condo. But there are six very good restaurants right across the street if you less ambitious. Our condo is located on 17 acres of lawns and swaying palm trees, just steps to white powder beach. It's a great place to relax, find peace, and feel good.
