Property description

You have arrived at an ideal vacation location on one of the world’s best beaches in Florida. You can enjoy sunbathing poolside, on the beach or on the spacious Gulfside lawn – or you can be active with tennis, golf, biking, shelling, swimming, diving, boating ... you name it. It's all right here!
So, welcome to our newly renovated and redecorated, bright 1-bedroom studio condo. Unpack, relax stand on the open lanai with beautiful views east to the back-bay estuaries, south to Naples coastline and west to the Gulf of Mexico. The condo has the latest amenities including, convection/microwave oven, ceramic cooktop, king size bed, updated bath, free cable and a free secure Wi-Fi connection.
Linens, towels, dishes, silverware, beach chairs – all provided. All you need to do is pack your bags and head to the Gulf.
On site you’ll find a large heated pool, 4 Har-Tru tennis courts, gas grills, shuffleboard, horse shoes, tropical birds, and miles of wide white sand beach and the welcoming warm Gulf!
Within walking distance either across the street or down the beach are unique water-front restaurants and bars, shops, theatres, spas, post office, drug store, marina, bikes, jet-ski & boat rentals, sport fishing, tour boat and an 18-hole executive golf course.
From here it’s a short drive or 50-cent trolley ride to Publix, Ft. Myers Beach Town center, other excellent restaurant and night spots. For a special treat, just a mile and half away is Lovers Key State Park -- a top ten Florida beach!
You can make excursions to nearby Naples and Fort Myers for site-seeing and shopping, or Sanibel and Captiva for nature trails, eco- kayaking, beach strolling, and shelling.

Owner info

About the owner: I was born and raised in Ohio. During a particularly cold winter in 1984 I visited Ft. Myers Beach and fell in love with the area for a vacation destination. As fate would have a few years later I met my husband – who happened to be from Florida. So I have relocated to Stuart, Florida – and in case you were wondering, I don’t miss the snow and ice! I have always had an interest in real estate and I’m now a realtor with Berkshire Hathaway. Every year my husband and I spend time redecorating, updating and improving our Ft. Myers Beach condo. The condo management company keeps the buildings, grounds and amenities in opening day condition. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose South Island, Fort Myers Beach, FL, USA:
The Gulf of Mexico has the best beaches in Florida. The beach here is unique with the estuary in front. It attracts an assortment of migrating and tropical birds. The surf is gentle and the water is shallow a long way out. It’s perfect for swimming, wading, shelling and strolling. You don’t really need a car here. Everything you need is within walking distance. You can fly in, get a cab to the condo and have great restaurants, fun waterfront bars, and shopping nearby. The condo has well-maintained amenities – 4 Har-Tru tennis courts, large heated pool, beautiful plants and a spacious Gulf front grass lawn. This location is perfect for a laid-back vacation or an action-packed one. The condo has a southern exposure which gives it a winter sun for warmth and summer shade for cool. The open lanai offers a panoramic view especially south along the coast.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
For the location: It’s all about the Gulf and beach – white, powdery sand. Beautiful blue Gulf. Birds, dolphins. Getaway: do as little or as much as you wish. The Condo: our pride in providing a bright, comfortable vacation place our guests have enjoyed and come back to.
