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.

Coming from Illinois, the condo had a beautiful beachy, cottage feel. There were a few bottles of wine when we arrived and an endless, peaceful beach filled with amazing shelling and sunshine! There were several restaurants very close for all kinds of tastes. The beds were very comfortable, and the lanai offered a beautiful outdoor space we enjoyed immensely! This was our daughters’ first visit to the gulf and we honestly can’t wait to go back!
Loved Condo and Location
Had a wonderful vacation. Property Manager is very responsive to inquiries as well as property caretakers! The condo is very clean and immediately feels like home.
Grocery store is only 5 minutes away. Many restaurants close by too Loved walks along the beach during low tide in the evening. Witnessed sea turtle laying her eggs, found a sandbar filled with sand dollars, saw dolphins near shoreline feeding and playing!
The bird nesting area on the beach in front of condo made for a great “nature” experience. The beach felt private as not many people were around and we found many beautiful shells. Condo was clean, well equipped and very comfortable. Loved the view and would certainly rent here again if our travels bring us back to the Fort Myers area.
Better then expected.
We had excellent contact from the owner prior to arriving. We received detailed instructions and a follow up once we arrived from the property managers. The one thing that really was apparent is both the owner and property manager really care. The unit is a bit smaller then the pictures would imply but also the pictures undersell the quality of the unit and how well equipped and stocked it was. Everything was spotless and in it's place. It was clear as far as directions what you needed to do and how to enjoy the unit and the grounds. Being at the end of the Island you have easy access to Fort Myers Beach center and Bonita Beach and Springs. Kitchen was well equipped so cooking is which we did is easy. The fenced in balcony with plenty of room allows you to enjoy the evening without being lunch for the bugs. We found the bed in the master to be the most comfortable we have had in 10 years of renting in Florida. Thanks to the owner and management agency for making this a very memorable and relaxed stay in Fort Myers Beach.
We really enjoyed staying at your condo. Loved the way it was decorated. It was away from the busy part of Fort Meyers Beach so it was very quiet. It’s great that you have beach chairs and beach towels so if you are flying you don’t need to pack any. The condo is close to everything you need, groceries, restaurants and Lovers Key. We will definitely be back to visit. Thanks for the hospitality.
We had the BEST vacation! The condo is right on the beach! You can't beat the location. It's close to shops, restaurants, Publix, boat rentals, anything you would need. The condo was clean, had beach chairs, towels, extra linens, in suite washer and dryer (which is so helpful when travelling with two small boys), AC, kitchen essentials, you name it. We would come back and recommend this spot to anyone!
