Oceanfront Condo Resort
This fully updated beachfront condo provides the best of both...a large white-sand beach overlooks the Gulf of Mexico, and because Island's End is the most southern building on the island, it also overlooks San Carlos Pass and Lover's Key State Park.
From your screened lanai, enjoy the beauty of sunsets and watch local boaters travelling in and out of the Pass. Be lulled to sleep listening to the waves from the master bedroom with 2 sliders. This condo was fully renovated in 2016 and is new to the rental market. It also includes an assigned covered parking spot.
The location is ideal, since it is the last complex on the island it offers an easy southern exit off Fort Myers Beach and quick access to Bonita Beach, Naples, and, of course, all the amenities that Fort Myers Beach offers. Park your car and use the Trolley.
This condo has a king-master suite. The bathroom has been fully renovated with a walk-in shower. The second bedroom has 2 twin beds and a fully renovated bathroom that includes a walk-in shower. The great room contains all new furniture including a queen-size sofa bed. If and when you choose to use the fully-stocked kitchen, you will enjoy the experience - granite countertops, chef's island, new stainless steel appliances. Serve your guests drinks and appetizers at the bar overlooking the kitchen. Then enjoy the dinner you prepared at the table that seats six. Okay let's get real - there is a big-screen HD TV in the great room and TV's in both bedrooms and WiFi. So when you are ready to serve dinner, you can choose the dining room, the lanai, or trays in front of the TV.
What makes Island End's unique? This complex offers so many amenities: two heated pools, separate spa, tennis courts, fishing pier, grills, basketball court, pickleball.
What makes the Best of Both 303 unique? Our unit includes a kayak and bicycle. Explore the back bay or paddle to Lover's Key for a shelling excursion. Ride the bike on numerous bike paths throughout Lee County.

About Skip Messinger
I currently work part-time as a charter captain and mate for AWE based out of the Coconut Point Hyatt. Many mornings you may see the AWE skiff out in the pass as you enjoy your morning coffee. Holly owns an insurance agency. We were high school sweethearts and are from Fairfax, Virginia. I retired from the banking industry and she retired from the school system. The only thing we missed from our former life in the D.C. metro area, was our ocean-front condo in Ocean City, Maryland. That is why we searched for a beach-front condo in South-west Florida.
Skip Messinger purchased this Condo in 2017
Why Skip Messinger chose South Island
We fell in love with Island's End. The complex is beautiful and well maintained. We watched the market until the perfect condo came up for sale. We love that the condos in the middle tower have two sliders in the master bedroom. There is the slider onto the lanai but also a slider onto a small private balcony that provides a beautiful view of the water from bed. Our beach is the widest beach on the island. We also love the location. Being the southern-most condo in Fort Myers Beach provides us easy access from Bonita Springs and Naples. We have privacy at this end but can quickly access the restaurants and night spots in the more populated part of the beach.
What makes this Condo unique
Southwest Florida is truly a paradise and a great place to visit. Holly and I vacationed in Florida for over 30 years before moving here permanently 10 years ago. The area caters to tourists. Whether you fly in or drive, our condo is easily accessible. Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) is a new airport serving the Fort Myers/Naples area. If you choose to drive, once you exit I-75 at Exit 116 West, you don't make another turn until you reach Island's End. What could be easier?

Beautiful, quiet, and relaxing
Beautiful condo on the 3d floor, which enjoyed great views of the pristine beach and state park preserves. Amenities were as advertised. Owners were gracious and helpful. We will return next year
Great place to vacation! We stayed for 3 months and are coming back next year for another 3 months.
My wife and I really enjoyed our stay here. The condo is on the quiet end of the island with great water views. The condo is very well furnished and has a well stocked kitchen. The beach was great for walking and shelling. The fishing was excellent on the beach and on the dock across the street. The temperature of the pool was just right and lounge chairs were always available. The owner was extremely accommodating and made our vacation experience trouble free.
CONDO with a VIEW on the BEACH.
Dear Holly and Skip
We had an absolute wonderful stay in your Condo, lots of room, nicely decorated and with a great view onto the beach, onto Lovers Key and the Gulf of Mexico. Everything in the Condo looked like new, which partly was due to the hurricane Irma. Seeing the sun rise from the bed room every day of our stay is exceptional. We stayed the month of November and used all our meals on the balcony, seeing the dolphins, mannetees, all the birds and even sting ray jumping. We had the beach practically to ourselves and walked regularly for hours. We made an average of more than 7 miles per day, but that includes the shopping in some of the very good malls in the area.
The condo is perfect for 4 but can sleep 6. The bed rooms are great, the beds fine and sleep very well. The living room is fine as well with comfortable sitting. The kitchen is well equipped except for the pots and pans, one of the very few points where the condo good see some improvement. It is not that bad because we were still able to produce a thanksgivings dinner.
Three stories down, out through the door, you walk directly onto the beach. There are nice looking swimming pools but we preferred the Gulf for swimming. We did not have to worry about beach chairs, towels and parasol because they were all provided. We will return.
