About Jonna Mogab

I am a long time Chicago resident, 30 years in private practice as a psychotherapist, the mother of two and proud grandmother of three little boys ages 10 to 3 years old.

Jonna Mogab purchased this condo in 2015

Why Jonna Mogab chose South Island

This property is perfectly located on the south end of Estero Island, close to both the beach and bay, every amenity and yet nestled above the mangroves and Estero Cove for peace and solitude once you are back at home. The property is beautifully maintained and supports a lovely community of long-time residents and repeat renters.

What makes this condo unique

The pool, BBQ,and bocce court is steps away from the unit and there is an active tennis and bocce ball community during high season, and a beautiful private nature preserve with fishing in the cove and bay.

Beautifully decorated; stocked amply with everyday needs.

  • 4 of 5

The condo was clean, beautifully decorated, plenty of clean sheets, towels, and quality kitchen and dining articles. The pool is nearby, and the beach just a walk across the street. Santini Plaza with its shops and restaurants is a block away. CVS is half a block away. We enjoyed our stay and would stay there again.

The house is very cozy and personable. We were so at home!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the condo and had a hard time leaving! It was easy to get to shops, restaurants, and beautiful beaches. I was recovering from an injury and I found the atmosphere perfect to relax and rest. I loved sitting on the balcony and listening to the birds, swimming in the pool and even just relaxing on the comfortable double bed in the master bedroom. I would certainly recommend Jonnas little paradise to anyone!

Owner's Response: Thank you Angela. I loved having you there. I do want to clarify that the master bed is actually a Queen. Maybe the terminology is different in Germany.

Excellent rental

  • 5 of 5

Having vacationed at Estero Cove for over 20 years, I found this condo to be one of the most tastefully decorated and neighbor friendly. The location is perfect, across the street from one the best Florida beaches, a short walk to restaurants, drugstore, ice cream store, and even a movie theatre that serves dinner. The people at Estero Cove are very social and there is always the opportunity to join them in tennis, pickleball, or bacci ball. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone who wants to enjoy the Ft. Myers Beach area while staying in a beautiful, comfortable, well decorated condo.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

Rented this two bedroom condo for 3 months this summer, it is a quiet, beautiful complex that is very safe and secure, just across the road from the beach. There are walking paths, pool, and stores to walk to. The owner was great to work with and just ordered new furniture. We spent a lot of time on the lanai watching the storms roll in. Thanks for making us feel welcome!
