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).

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 2017 including new furniture, granite counter tops, 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 (Southwest corner) that is amazingly decorated and equipped that offers a 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... even in other units in this building.

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 common areas in the building have 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.

A stay in this unit will Feed the senses & Nourish your soul!

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.

VRBO AUTO BOOKING. Please note that VRBO has taken over the booking and communication of many of the things we did ourselves over the last 13 years, SO THERE WILL BE SOME ROUGH SPOTS till we figure this out. Our 13 years of 5 star reviews are hard earned and we intend to continue that - even with VRBO managing our listing. We are sorry that we are losing ANY communication with our wonderful guests. We hope that you will CONTACT US DIRECTLY if you are able so we can help create the wonderful experience our guests/friends have enjoyed for so many years. Help us make this transition work. THANKS!

Note: There are coolers, fishing equipment, extra beach chairs, 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.

About Jon

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!

Jon purchased this Condo in 2005

                                                                          Greg F.

                                                                          My wife and I recently spent a week at this property. We have stayed at a number of VRBO properties and no one does a better job than Jon and Barbara in making sure everything is just right for their guests. The building is in an ideal location. One of just theee commercial properties on a large barrier island that is otherwise mostly a State Park. The beach in front of the unit is good, and you can walk into the park and have access to miles of uncrowded beach.

                                                                          We enjoyed using the pool on the property and never had trouble getting a lounger.

                                                                          There is an excellent restaurant next door, Flipp ra , which we visited a few times. No reservations, but you can call ahead and be put on the waiting list and will be told what time to arrive

                                                                          We made several trips into the park , for biking and kayaking We would recommend the estuary tour with Stephen Denmark , which can be booked on line or at the park.

                                                                          Overall, We were very pleased with our decision to stay here

Now the unit is fantastic from the moment you walk through the door the views are out of this world !! The unit very clean and has everything you need ,beach toys fishing rods and even a cooler for the beach.The unit is very updated and nice art work as well the bed is a king and great the grounds and building are well kept and secure.You won’t find a more friendly building the people are so nice and loved happy hr on the ground floor everyday rain or shine the beach is great and we saw dolphins everyday and even got close with the 2 person kayak that come with Jon’s unit . Lots of restaurants close by but my favourite is Flippers only a 5 min walk .I can keep going on but only have so much space . If you rent this unit you will not be disappointed !! Will definitely come back as soon as I can !!! Thanks Jon and Barbara. Mark and Jan in Constance Bay. Ontario Canada

We stayed two weeks, had a great time, we enjoyed the pool, sunshine, ping pong. We saw dolphins almost everyday that we loved watching on the balcony. We loved the deco , it was so colorful. We enjoyed grilling , and eating in, Jon went out of his way leaving a lot of the condiments to use. King size bed was so.... comfy . The shower was wonderful. We had a wonderful time, hope to go back next year. Thanks Jon and Barbara!!!

The decorations are lovely beach theme. It sits right on the beach. I can sit on the deck and watch hubby fish. There is a bait shop a mere 4 miles away as well as one right down the road so he’s a happy fellow. The beach is well cared for with plenty of chairs and loungers along with thatched umbrellas

                                                                          The pool is heated and plenty big. 4 grills and laundry rounds out this gem of a vacation home. We’ve already booked next year. Our new home away

                                                                          A GREAT PLACE TO STAY!

                                                                          David K.Chicago, IL

                                                                          Wonderful location, great view, pool, beach and kayaking. A dolphin feeding off the beach at dusk the first night as a bonus. Everything in working order and clean, no surprises. Jon is a very good communicator and up front about the property rental. We would stay here again.

                                                                          Look no further, this is THE place to stay!!!!

                                                                          Rolf T.

                                                                          We were in Ft Myers for a wedding. My 80+ year old folks were looking for a hotel room for a few nights and some R & R. We stumbled upon this place and it truly was a blessing. First of all, Jon, the owner was awesome and immediately responded to our questions and unknown area concerns. Secondly, the condo was incredible. The views were absolutely outstanding. It really does not get any better. The complex was easy to get around and my parents had a great time. The dolphin sighting (with their offspring) was amazing. As an extra bonus, there was coffee! Who would ever need a hotel room when you have Jon's condo! :) Unconditionally, we highly recommend this condo to stay. Thank you Jon!
