About the Property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Away from the crowds and noise is this spectacular, waterfront (on the beach) corner condominium allowing you private unobstructed views of the Gulf, San Carlos Pass, Fort Myers Beach, Back Bays, and is on Lover’s Key State Park Beach (#4 in the US with 3 miles of pristine white sand shelling beach and 700 acres of natural surroundings).

Feeds the senses & nourishes the soul!

Experience the magnificence and tranquility of Black Island, named after the Pirate Black Augustus who used its land and waters. Imagine lounging on your own private sunny balcony, listening to the waves lapping against the beach, having your coffee, drink or meal watching the dolphins, manatees, birds, boaters, sunbathers, and fishermen below. You will love the romance of the ever-changing sunsets and lights from ships at sea, the draw-bridge and Fort Myers Beach at night. This unique corner unit offers total privacy within the unit AND balcony, allowing sunbathing, enjoyable and relaxing times without prying eyes. This unit is beautiful and was completely remodeled in January 2017 including new furniture, granite countertops, flat screen TVs, luxurious Gel-Foam king-size bed, extensive artwork from Peter Max and others with many upgrades.

All units are NOT the same on the beach and especially at Lover's Key! This is one of a handful of CHOICE units in this complex in the 02 stack and offers the private corner of the building with majestic 270 degree views. Don't risk your vacation & the chance for a lifetime memorable experience in order to save a few dollars on inferior and disappointing accommodations.

Truly one of the most dramatic and relaxing spots on any coast in the US. There is a very special feeling that comes from this unique and magical unit that cannot be explained---only experienced. You can see from those guests who share their experiences and their desire to return over and over that there is something special that feeds the senses and nourishes the soul. Come and see why Lover's Key State Park is the 4th most visited park in Florida and why the name Lover's is appropriate.

This is a PRIVATELY OWNED & MAINTAINED UNIT that is offered to you as place for your 'Special Vacation.' The entire common areas in the building has been totally upgraded and is 100% owner-managed, with each unit decorated or remodeled differently with lots of friendly people. This building is NOT a hotel, but an extremely unique escape that will become your personal paradise, where you can make lifetime friends and you will want to return to year-after-year! This is the ONLY building on Black Island that has its’ own beach with chairs, loungers and Tiki Huts AND allows you to walk directly into Lover’s Key State Park without walking on the road and paying a fee (don’t be fooled).

RELAX! This resort experience allows you to unwind, fall in love all over again, and enjoy your time without waiting in lines or feeling like you are in rushed traffic and crowds. Whether sunning on your private balcony checking your emails with the free WIFI (with table and chairs and recliner) or enjoying the 85-degree, Olympic-size pool (never full) and Jacuzzi overlooking the water, outdoor dining area with free gas grills, Bocce ball court, plus a private beach with chairs and umbrellas (always available) where you can relax in the sun, socialize, or play with water toys. You do not have to GO anywhere to truly relax - it is all right here. Yes, you can have your own boat or jet ski here, anchor it by the beach, and will be able to watch it from this unit. ENJOY OUR FREE 2 PERSON KAYAK while visiting.

Your beach front restaurant (Flippers) is available 500 feet from your door and many others are nearby. Should you want to mix with the 'Times Square' crowd or tourist beach crowd, you can drive or a quick 50-cent trolley will take you there quickly, stops everywhere, and saves parking fees in some of the busier areas during peak tourist periods. The 75 cent trolley stops on the street in front of the complex to take you directly to Fort Myers or Bonita Springs cities, beaches, restaurants, and shopping.

Note: There are coolers, fishing equipment, rafts, kites, games, and toys to keep everyone busy. Smoking is allowed only on the balcony with the door closed. NO pets, sorry. This unit has a floor-to-ceiling wood-folding curtain which allows separating the sleeping areas at night, for additional privacy, in case you have others using the queen-size hide-a-bed.

Thanks for looking. Call or email with any questions.

You will save the VRBO service fee by booking directly through the owner or just for questions. After choosing 'request a quote', the 2nd page allows you to CONTACT THE OWNER FOR A DETAILED QUOTE. Hit that and leave your requested dates or questions.

CREDIT CARDS ARE ACCEPTED. Emails are responded to quickly unless the owner is traveling—Thanks for your interest. Check out our guest book link below and see why renters love this unit and return year after year. Prices in this building can vary by 50% because some are 30 year old dorm rooms which face the parking lot. You deserve this unique and memorable experience that you will never forget!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Lover's Key has held a special place in our heart since Jon toured the entire Florida coast in the 90's looking for that "SPECIAL PLACE' and discovered this unique and magical location. Jon never got this location and experience out of his mind or soul, so before he moved from San Francisco to SW Florida he grabbed up this magnificent unit so that he would have it whenever he needed that special relaxing place. We are happy to share our Special Place with our friends and guests and now it has become theirs as well - with many coming multiple times a year. We hope you will check out our reviews and see what others experiences have been and hope to add yours to the list. We go out of our way to make your experience special. Jon & Barbara live close by on the water in Matlacha. Check out our piece of paradise. Enjoy!

Why the Owner Chose Fort Myers Beach, FL, USA:
Truly one of the most dramatic and relaxing spots on any coast in the US. There is a very special feeling that comes from this unique and magical spot that cannot be explained---only experienced. You can see from those guests who share their experiences and their desire to return over and over that there is something special in this unit and feeds the senses and nourishes the soul. Come and see why Lover's Key State Park is the 4th most visited park in Florida and why the name Lover's is appropriate.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Total relaxation and comfort that keeps people coming back year after year.
