Why Mindy Strand chose South Island

Truly the best of both worlds, directly across form the most beautiful stretch of Fort Myers Beach and on a corner canal, so tons of boating options! The two levels and tons of outdoor living space allow for plenty of room for everyone to spread out and enjoy their vacation.

What makes this house unique

Great mid-island location, close to everything, but far enough away to avoid the hustle and bustle.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What an absolutely great house! We had a marvelous time and I in particular enjoyed shooting pool. We're so glad we were there.

Great place for a relaxing family reunion

  • 5 of 5

The house had so many different areas for everyone to hang out and do different things and the location was great! The beach was beautiful and only a short walk. I wish we could have stayed longer!

Beautiful house! We enjoyed the fact that there were so many areas to hang out both indoor and outdoor. The game room was a favorite. Mindy was also very helpful and informative and the beaches are to die for.. Will definitely come back!

I have stayed at many properties but what I especially loved about our stay at this property was all of the little extras provided to make your stay special. The property was spotless clean with plenty of towels and beach items available. The owner would respond to any questions immediately and e-mailed us on several occasions to ensure everything was ok with our stay. The location was perfect just a 2 minute stroll to the beach and an even shorter stroll to the restaurant. Would highly recommend this property for your stay at Fort Myers Beach

Spacious and comfortable home--GREAT porch and outdoor space with the ocean steps away!

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to enjoy 4 nights here over Spring Break. The house was so generous in size that our family of 5, my daughter's friend, plus the grandparents were able to stay. This is what we wanted--family time and near the ocean. Everyone enjoyed the pool table and outdoor hammocks/swings, as well as the board games at the house. Kitchen was lovely. I'm a cook, so my only small criticism is that it would be helpful to have a few more larger serving bowls and cutting boards, but otherwise, the house was well stocked. We felt right at home and Mindy was great to work with! Gorgeous sugary sand beach across the street. The home was ideal, but if it had a hottub or pool, it would be over the top!

A perfect Mid-Island location! Steps to the most pristine part of Ft Myers Beach, yet just a short 2 mile bike ride or Island Trolly to Downtown and the night life, the North End of the island is the wilder side... The South End is fairly quiet, we are perfectly in the middle :) 1 block to the Beach Cinema, a 6 screen first run theater with food, beer and wine. 3 Top restaurants and 2 really fun Tiki Bars within 3 blocks, bicycle rentals 1 block, or walk across the street and for $20 have a private beach cabana for the day at the Outrigger! Best spot on the Island, you'll see!
