Why Ray Ruddy chose South Island

Quiet, "beach in a box". If you want a reasonably priced place, that just works, close to everything but not so close that you can hear it, this is the place for you.

                                                                  Beautiful vacation spot

                                                                  Debbie J.

                                                                  The condo was the perfect location. It’s located on the south end which was much quieter but close to many restaurants and groceries. The unit was extremely clean and had everything we needed. We especially enjoyed sitting on the lanai for coffee in the morning. Views were beautiful. We had the choice of beach or pool—everything for some much needed R &R.

                                                                  Beautiful view!

                                                                  Jessica A.

                                                                  Ray, Al & Lisa were very easy and quick to communicate with. I received a call from Lisa while still at the airport that our room was ready early. We had a late flight out and they were able to let us enjoy the condo a few hours longer. Although we did make the trip to the north end a few times we loved the peacefulness of the south end! The view of the gulf and the sunsets have my heart! The kids loved the pool and seeing dolphins and manatees on our boat tour! The condo was cleaned and stocked with all the necessities and a few bonus items as well! I would highly recommend!!

                                                                  Sand, Sun, Seashells and Surprises!

                                                                  Cheryl H.

                                                                  Spent a week at Castle Beach condo 106 last week and it was fantastic! We've stayed at many home away properties and this was one of the best! It was a welcome surprise to be allowed into the rental a little early when we arrived early afternoon and check in was so easy! We were even more surprised to find wine, beer, condiments and paper goods in the condo! This NEVER happens at home away rentals! Usually the cleaning staff takes every last scrap and you're left buying olive oil, salt/pepper, sugar, spices and toilet paper just for a short week! The unit was also beautifully and comfortably furnished (another rare and pleasant surprise) and well maintained. The view of the beach was just the icing on the cake! We had great weather and a very quiet, relaxing vacation. There isn't really anything bad I can say about the condo. The association may want to invest in a proper key lock for the pool instead of just being able to turn the deadbolt. On the weekends, the neighborhood kids rode in by the dozen and crashed the pool for about an hour. As for Fort Meyers, they definitely have a traffic problem to get into the main part of town so we were pretty much stranded on the south end of the island which is very quiet and really there are no good restaurants. That was just fine for us though. We cooked in at night and went to Lovers Key state park a couple of days to change up the scenery. This condo is great if you're looking for comfort, relaxation and quiet beach time! Ray, Al and Lisa were very responsive and easy to work with. We'll definitely return!

                                                                  Outstanding Value

                                                                  DaveBWebster, NY

                                                                  My wife and I were escaping winter weather for a few days in the sun. We also wanted to take in a couple of spring training ball games.

                                                                  This property was clean and completely equipped for our short getaway. What we didn't expect were the benefits of its unique location. The beach in front of the property is more than a couple hundred yards deep. The separation of human habitation and wildlife allows for the most remarkable opportunity. We could walk along the shore and watch pelicans (a lot of pelicans) feed within feet of us. We saw dolphins swimming just offshore and walked among hundreds of all types of shore birds. A Tern sanctuary is also part of this beach environment. The sunrises and sunsets are spectacular.

                                                                  Our hosts provided a couple of bottles of wine and a snack as a welcoming gift - a very nice touch.

                                                                  In summary, a very well equipped, clean, and comfortable home away from home.

                                                                  What a wonderful vacation!

                                                                  Denice H.

                                                                  We had the most relaxing and enjoyable vacation ever! This condo is right on the beach and in a very private location — away from the traffic and crowds. As soon as you walk in, you feel like you are in paradise. Everything you need is provided and the kitchen is very well stocked. We used the outside grill several times. Also, the pool is very nice if you want to take a break from the beach. We will definitely be back.

                                                                  What more could you ask for?

                                                                  dave m.
