About Tammy Bradford

I purchased this home to raise my son in and have had a lot of fond memoies here with family outings and holidays. I have lived most of my life on Ft. myers beach and finally decided to be close to grandkids.We now have grandchildren and we use our home now to just get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and sit by canal and fish and enjoy our grandkids.

Tammy Bradford purchased this house in 1987

Why Tammy Bradford chose South Island

Our property is located at the quiet end of Fort Myers Beach. Here you can enjoy and a private getaway with friends or family. The beach is a beautiful 500 yards away.

There are flat screen T.Vs in every room, with Wi-fi connection, so you won't miss a thing while away from home. Truly a home away from home.

Paradise at Fort Myers Beach

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this beautiful home on the south end of Fort Myers Beach. We loved the short walk to the beach, the screened in patio facing the canal and the lovely home itself. It was a wonderful way to spend the Christmas holiday.

Well maintained spacious and comfortable home in a quiet area of the island.

  • 5 of 5

The home was just a few minutes walk from a beautiful area of Fort Meyers Beach. Also a very good restaurant was at the end of the street - with excellent service and tables providing a nice view of a canal where mullet fish loved to jump and entertain us while we ate.

Also was convenient to a pharmacy and convenience store. We enjoyed the lanai which stayed comfortable even when the temperature and humidity climbed.

Would have enjoyed a lounge chair for the yard area between the lanai and canal.

We look forward to visiting again!

We rented this 2 bedroom (plus den with pull out couch) house, in conjunction with a larger house 3 doors down the street, for our large family Christmas. It was the perfect combination for us, as the family staying in this smaller house had their privacy, in a very comfortable space. It is a 5 minute walk to a beautiful beach, and close to movie, restaurant, grocery shopping. Nice residential neighborhood....away from the busy downtown. Easy access from the south end of the island. Would definitely rent here again. Thanks Tammy and Jim, for all the information you offered about the property and area. You are great hosts!

Glad you enjoyed your stay looking forward to having you as a guest in Our Home again....
