About Kirby and Mariya Vandivort
We are a midwestern couple that normally enjoy the flat cornfields of Illinois, but we love to get away when we can. We personally manage our vacation home and look forward to sharing it with you!
Kirby and Mariya Vandivort purchased this Condo in 2011
Why Kirby and Mariya Vandivort chose South Island
We researched a million (slight exaggeration) different places, and Fort Myers Beach is where we wanted to be. It's warm enough on The Beach to enjoy winter here, but the cool breezes off the Gulf make summer extremely enjoyable as well. And, the other seasons (spring and autumn) are great, too, because the weather is excellent and there aren't any crowds.
What makes this Condo unique
The views here are absolutely stunning (just check out our reviews and see what most people comment on). We looked at a bunch of different properties (no exaggeration) and this one won... because of the view. Location, location, location. We are up high enough, on the 11th floor, that we can see beautiful sunsets, and the wide side of the balcony/lanai on our condo faces northwest, right towards the widest beach on the island. (Another perk of being on the 11th floor is that bugs seldom get up that high) The end of the balcony faces southwest, so we get to see beautiful sunsets regardless of what time of year it is. Also, as you can see on the map, our condo is on the southern end of the island, which is definitely the 'quieter' end. We really like this, and it is just one of the things that makes us want to go back again and again and again.

Bonita Beach and Tennis Resort
The unit was well equipped and very clean. The grounds were well kept and beautiful. The beach was great for walking and swimming.
The strip mall across the street had great restaurants and shops.
This was in all ways the best vacation spot we've ever been to.
Location, location, location!
You couldn't beat the view from the balcony- the sunsets were gorgeous! We loved being right on the beach and across from restaurants and stores. Enjoyed the Farmer's market in the shopping center across the street on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Bed was comfortable. Beach chairs and umbrella provided. So easy to catch the bus to Time Square at Ft. Myers beach. Be sure to bring your own beach towels, paper goods and toiletries. Condo was a bit dated, but adequate for our needs.
Very nice condo. The views were spectacular as advertised. Really enjoyed the area and are planning on returning next year. 11th floor was nice for viewing. Owners very responsive to all needs and very organized on all details.
Thanks for the great time
Perfect place to stay! Great view, great location, very clean and comfortable!! Nice beach, great for shelling in the morning. Would recommend.
Can not beat the south end of the island
This property was wonderful for the wife and my getaway. The views are tremendous from the balcony and even just out the window. If you like shelling, this is the place for you. Just go south on the beach at low tide and even in July you will find plenty of shells. This location is easy to get to Lovers Key and in July, not a long ride from the pier area. Went there several day before 10am and had no trouble parking. Went to Captiva and Sanibel Islands one day but their beaches were not as nice as the one right in front of Estero Beach and Tennis Club.
