Great condo in a wonderful complex.

We are looking forward to our 3rd stay at South Harbor (Santa Maria) this fall. The condo is very clean & nicely decorated. The king bed is comfty. The condo is very well equipped and we feel like we have all the comforts of home. Our favorite spot is the screened lanai which has a beautiful view overlooking the boat dock, swimming pool and manatees playing in the water. The gas grill is directly below the unit, so my husband can throw on the steaks & I can co-ordinate the rest of the meal. As pool owners we are very particular about the water quality & have always enjoyed the large pool & hot tubs, as well as the abundant chaise lounges. There are even clean bathrooms right next to the pool area. No running back to your unit. Just a short walk across the street to a great beach & two doors down finds you at a plaza with shops,bars & restaurants. Alice, the owner, takes great pride in decorating the condo & is very accessible & easy to work with. Nothing but good things to say about this little gem in the sun.

we have stayed here maybe 8 or 9 times in the past few years and LOVE IT!!, its quiet, at marina where the manatees come in each day. Place is beautiful, well stocked , always clean and the king bed is so incredibly comfortable. Place is located near Lovers Key State Park, which is beautiful and has miles of walking trails where you see, birds, dolphins etc.

We love the location, we go up to Estero and Ft Myers and Naples, Sanibel and Marco Island easily. For restaurants we love Bahama Breeze in Ft Myers, FIre Pit in Ft Myers and Pagellis At Coconut Point in Estero.

Alice who owns this place has been awesome to deal with over the years.

we would Highly recommend this to anyone looking for a get away at the beach.

we have rented this condo probably 8 or 9 times in the past few years and LOVE it. Its at a marina where each day the manatees come in. The pool and jacuzzis are great. Place is always clean and stocked- the king size bed is so comfortable , place is exactly as described , its a home away from home. Its located near Lovers Key state park with miles of walking trails, and right near beautiful beaches.

For restaurants we love Bahama Breeze in Ft Myers and Pagellis at the Coconut point mall in Estero and the fire pit in Ft Myers.

From the Owner

'South Harbor' is in a lovely resort community which has a wonderful 'Florida feel'. We love the tropical flowers and trees, walking the docks along the waterfront, watching the huge yachts. This is a friendly community too. The first time we saw this property we fell in love with it and knew it would be a great place to share with others. The affordability makes this a place folks can visit and still have $ to enjoy the local shopping, outlets, flea market, waterparks, and golf courses.

Activity and Interests

Nearby attractions are plentiful: great restaurants, some featuring live music nightly. Outlet malls and a huge fleamarket are favorite places to visit.

Lovers Key Island is minutes away for biking, hiking, swimming, and fishing.

Drive to the nearby islands of Sanibel and Captiva for more sightseeing.

Beach chairs are provided.
