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!!

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.
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-!
This was a super location for our baseball/vacation trip. A quick walk to the beach, restaurants and local shopping. If we didn’t want to head to the beach it was a nice stay by the pool or on the dock. We thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to it again next time.
thanks again to you and your family for staying at the Harmony House! Thanks for pointing out all that there is- Ft Myers Beach is a fun place- safe travels!
We enjoyed a week vacation at Harmony House. The house was even more than we expected. It is definitely the best stocked house we have rented. The kitchen had everything we needed, nothing was missing to cook any kind of meal. The beach equipment was awesome. Lots of chairs, umbrellas, beach toys, and wagon were used daily. All the extra touches of bath soap, hand soap, dish soap, laundry supplies were very much appreciated. The pool was a treat as it was hot as all get out. Dana was very responsive to our questions and provided us with lots of useful information about the island. We enjoyed our stay and look foward to returing soon.
Geoff thank you for the review- yes you indeed had a very hot week-! I try hard to keep the house stocked as I really like to cook as well. Thanks for noticing-Please keep us in your plans for the future!
Perfect Vacation Home
We were completely satisfied. The home owner Dana contacted us upon arrival to welcome us and make sure everything was okay. Home was exactly as marketed. It was the perfect size for our family (4 adults) and one grandchild.. It was clean, neat, and well maintained. The pool and lanai was the perfect spot to relax after a long day of exploring southwest, Florida. Our granddaughter enjoyed the pool toys that were provided. Beach access was close and a very easy walk from the home. The owner Dana even provided a collapsible wagon to carry our load. The neighborhood was nice and quiet. We would choose to stay here again.
Karl thanks for the review .
