About Katherine Dixon

My family had been traveling to Florida from the Chicago area for years. Eventually my parents retired here and my brother and sister followed Mom and Dad to Florida. Instead of moving to Florida after college, my wife and I 'turned right' at the Gulf of Mexico and ended up in Texas - a two year adventure that turned into 35. Our Grandchildren are in Texas so we will be here for some time to come. We both love our family in Florida and hope you will enjoy the Island Winds as much as we do. We both love to bicycle on the beach and visit the many eating and music venue's close by. It is fascinating to watch what I think is the most beautiful part of Ft. Myers Beach constantly transform as mother nature continues to grow the beach behind our building.

Katherine Dixon purchased this Condo in 2013

Why Katherine Dixon chose South Island

We wanted our Grandchildren to have the same opportunity I had to build great memories of such a beautiful place as Ft. Myers Beach. With my brother and sister (and their respective families) in the Ft. Myers area choosing Ft. Myers Beach was a 'no brainer'. We searched up and down the beach for years and kept coming back to the Island Winds. You won't find units larger than ours for comparable price, the amenities are great, as is the location. With Tiki bars in either direction, constant Gulf breezes and the beauty of Ft. Myers Beach you can't go wrong.

Last year we had several guests comment they loved the breezes and did not need the air conditioning (some times during the year). However they would have liked ceiling fans. So this year we installed hand held remote controlled ceiling fans in both the master and guest bedrooms. Keep the feedback coming!

The condo was very clean, great location on the beach, beautiful beach and bay views, and we hated to leave. The Dixon’s were so easy and accommodating to work with. The condo was stocked with everything! We will definitely be back. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us 😊�

It is located close to a little shopping center which made it convenient.I like the covered parking spaces. This area of the beach is beautiful. I hope to stay here again sometime.

                                                                          We were fortunate that our building received minimal damage during Hurricane Irma and are keeping our neighbors in our thoughts and prayers.

                                                                          My husband and I spent the month of February in this unit, the first couple staying in the unit since the remodeling. The unit was clean, comfortable and made it easy to just sit back, relax and enjoy our stay? The unit was well equipped with everyday supplies and cookware. The three screened-in lanais were all very comfortable with nice views. By far the best location on the beach.
