About Brenda & Rod Howes

As a company owner who helps clients book hotels for their meetings and conferences, we have a lot of experience staying as a guest in hotels and it is our sincerest intention to provide an above average unit for you to enjoy your well earned vacation.

Brenda & Rod Howes purchased this condo in 2014

Why Brenda & Rod Howes chose South Island

Fort Myers Beach (aka Paradise to the locals) simply captured a feeling which we needed to be apart of. Being northern folks, the beach, sun and warmth of Florida was a draw and FMB has a unique way to make you relax from the moment your toes hit the sand.

What makes this condo unique

This unit is 107 yards from the beach. Restaurants and amenities are also within walking distance. The warm gulf breeze and gentle waves make this location perfect for a relaxing getaway.

Whether you are looking for an active vacation or a relaxing retreat, Fort Myers Beach area can accommodate both. The beach is the main attraction and steps away from our building. Once you arrive, you can leave your car parked. Walking, biking and the trolley are great ways to get around island.
