In the morning, the courtyard is also a perfect place to breathe in the revitalizing salty air. In the evening, unwind with the beautiful sunsets as the colors illuminate the incoming tide.

About Shelly Morang

Bob and I are from MAINE. We graduated together in 1983 and have been happily married for 18 years.

Shelly Morang purchased this condo in 2014

Why Shelly Morang chose South Island

I always dreamed of owning a beach front property and I made my dream come true. Living on the coast of Maine we live just a few miles from our famous 7 miles stretch of beautiful beaches and I picked Fort Myers beach for the same quality of beach lifestyle. When I came across this beach front corner unit I said 'This is my dream condo' and I had to have it! Being from New England I wanted a place of my own that I could decorate in a cool beach theme. We now can enjoy this piece of paradise and share it with others.

What makes this condo unique

I wanted to be able to sit on my lanai and watch the sun set with a great glass of wine and listen to the sound of the waves, smell the fresh salt air and enjoy the beautiful ocean view. I feel in LOVE with this condo because I can do just that.

The prefect spot for a wonderful vacation.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this condo and we love it!!!!!! You are literally steps away from a beautiful beach. We spent many evenings in the lanai watching the sunsets. This condo is lovely and it has everything that you need. The location is great....restaurants and shops are only a short walk from the condo. We have stayed in other condos in other locations and this by far is our favorite. Shelly is wonderful to work with and so very helpful. This is our favorite get away from the cold Minnesota winters.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been to this condo for the last 2 years for the month of December. We couldn't believe how great this was the first year so we came back a second time and it was just as good. We loved it so much we ended up buying a unit in the same area. What was really great was being able to sit on the sofa and watch the dolphins play in the gulf right in front of you. Our condo had unbelievable sunset views too. Or if you prefer, you can have your feet in the sand in under 2 minutes and in the water in 3 minutes. Being a corner unit and gulf front you got double the terrific views. A really great experience.

Shelly has everything you could possibly want or anything you happened to forget. We've been to several places and used VRBO for years and Shelly has topped them all.

I absolutely loved this condo! Very quiet corner unit. Easy access to the beach and laundry room. Owners are very easy to communicate with as well! I will be returning next year.

Shell Crazy

  • 4 of 5

Loved the condo on the beach. I'm sure higher floors had a better long-range view but we could just walk out our door and be on the beach. I can't think of anything we would change except maybe a large screened TV for those cloudy, cool days.
