About Dana Zuber
The story all began when my family moved from New Jersey to Florida back in 1980! My whole family is still living here. Unfortunately I had to move back to N.J. after college- to work in NYC . My husband and I found this gem back in 2001. We loved the idea of coming down and spending time with my brothers - and their families and for our kids to know their cousins.Unfortunately due to our busy lives we can't get down to Florida more than a few times a year- so we love the idea of sharing our home with you! I have made our home comfortable and easy for all- who arrive. I love to entertain so you will find a fully equipped kitchen with all the items you need to host a family gathering! I hope you enjoy our house as much as we do!
Dana Zuber purchased this House in 2001
Why Dana Zuber chose South Island
I loved the idea of having a private residence near the beach- without all the chaos the north end of the beach can bring at various times of the year. The canal waterway to open water is a quick one to the gulf( @15 minutes which is Really Great-) Important question to ask if you are renting a boat on the island.. The location of our beach and the actual beach itself- is beautiful and a tranquil wide open space( pictures are on my site). I love the location- walk to everything while still private!
What makes this House unique
Location - Location- Location- Easy on and off the island in high season (Dec- April) by traveling in and out of the south end of the island- ( highly recommend) vs traveling over Mantanzas Bridge- The Beach where our home is located is Awesome! truly one of the prettiest beaches I have ever seen. The home is situated on a quiet street but right in the center of a lot of activity -- which enables you to retreat to a calm haven after you have had your fill of all there is to do!!

Fort Myers Gem
Great quiet location, close to the beach, relaxing pool and its on a on a canal. House is clean and very roomy, supplied with everything to make our stay even better. I would highly recommend this property to our friends and extended family.
Thanks to you and your family for staying with us!
You were excellent guests
I’m glad you were able to enjoy what the home has to offer.
Amazing property in a great location. Under 5 mins to the beach and right on the canal. We were lucky enough to see Manatees most days coming up to the dock! No complaints at all and hopefully can re-book for next year.
Dana the owner was extremely helpful and a pleasure to deal with.
James thanks to you and your family for staying with us!
Come back when your plans allow you were excellent guests
Cute Place on Quiet Street
Enjoyed staying here. Fantastic location if you want the privacy of your own house and don't mind a short walk. Close to gas station, grocery, CVS, bar&grill places.
Easy walk to the beach. Standard 50's-ish Florida vacation house with nice updates. We had 2 adults and 1 kid, but this space would be comfortable with 6 (or maybe more if they're really little). Good layout for a vacation house with bedrooms and kitchen surrounding the common area. No steps except 1 to get to the pool. Master and second bedroom have plenty of space, big closets, comfy beds. Kid bedroom is a little snug. Kitchen - plenty of tools to cook just about everything, lots of storage, everything very clean. Supplies - more than most places like this that I've stayed at. Amenities - nice washer and dryer, big TV, fast internet, keypad entry so no losing or sharing key, outdoor shower with hot water. Pool - about mid-size for houses in this area with easy steps down and a bench for relaxing with your drink near the deep end, clean, chemicals were right. Not a ton of room around it... but who cares, you should be IN the pool! Owner was very responsive to questions. Once you book, you can text and get answers quickly. Downsides - It's an older, updated house on a small lot, not some brand new mansion on stilts. Pool is in direct sun in the middle of the day, so bring your hat and sunscreen (evenings are mostly shade depending on the time of year). Still, though, the price seemed reasonable for what you get.
Thanks for the review - good point about the pool being in direct sun in the afternoon
Thanks for staying with us!
great location for family of 5 with older kids. they were able to take trolley and walk to beach.
ideal for those wanting quiet area of the beach.
Thanks for staying with us- you are correct the beach is quiet-!
