Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)
Why Tom Mertz chose South Island
Jan and I are boaters and we love observing the marina activities during the day and it is so quiet at night. We also love the convenience of all the shops, restaurants and bars withing walking distance. Our buildings were completed in 2000 and are newer than most of the other buildings on Fort Myers Beach. The owners association has done a wonderful job of maintaining and improving the property.
What makes this Condo unique
We enjoy being able to walk to the beach and all the amenities in Santini Marina Mall. We enjoy the 86 degree pool water all year long, surprisingly, it has to be cooled in the summer. We also enjoy the hot tub. Sometimes we can see dolphin and manatees right from the condo.

Our family of 5 enjoyed our stay! The condo was spotless and close to the beach. We loved the view overlooking the pier.
This is the second time staying in this unit, and we will continue to stay here. Working with the owner Tom is a delight, he makes you feel like your a guest in is home. The condo is extremely clean and well taken care of. Sitting on the balcony watching boats is so relaxing you don't want to leave, and we did see dolphin and manatee too.
Santini plaza, has some wonderful restaurants and shops. There is a farmers market on Tuesday and Thursday and fresh fruit stand every day.
There is a beach access 1 block away which you can rent chairs and umbrella for the day, also 1 mile away is Lover Key State Park with great beaches and hiking/bike trails.
Great place to relax and enjoy FMB!
This is a great place to enjoy FMB. The condo was clean and modern and overlooked the pool and the marina. Open the front door and enjoy nice breeze throughout the condo. This is a good place for someone in a wheelchair with wide doors, a roll in shower and pedestal sink to roll under. No support bars around toilet. Easy to roll right out to screened in deck with low threshold. Pool area has shaded areas and tables/chairs. Kitchen had lots of nice extras and was fully stocked. Owner great to work with. Highly recommend.
Perfect Get Away!
Our family stayed in this beautifully decorated and fully furnished condo for Spring break. It has everything you need to feel right at home. It is perfectly located near the marina with stunning views in every direction. Each morning we enjoyed watching the boats stroll through the canal as we would drink our morning coffee on the Lani. We even caught a glimpse of dolphins on several occasions. The condo is approximately four miles from Times Square where there is lots of shopping, restaurants, and the beach. For only $2 per day, you can purchase unlimited rides on the trolley. It picks you up one block from the condo at the corner of Lennell and Estero and will drop you off at Times Square or anywhere in between. The traffic was very heavy during the week we were there and parking was $15 and up, so the trolley made traveling to Times Square easy, affordable and stress free. The condo is just far enough away from the hustle and bustle, yet it's close enough to enjoy the festivities if you wish. In the evenings it was nice to return back to the condo where is was less busy and unwind in the pool and hot tub. There is also a beautiful grilling area with tables to enjoy a meal and the scenery. Tom was very friendly and wonderful to work with. He promptly answered any questions we had regarding our accommodations. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. It was the perfect get away!
Thank you for this wonderful review. We are continually attempting to keep our condo the best rental condo in Palm Harbor Club.
There is also beach access within walking distance of the condo, by the Wyndham Garden Hotel.
Thanks again, Tom and Jan
Just a great spot overlooking the harbor. Lots of boat activity, and quite a few manatees and dolphins floating by that we could watch from the lanai. The condo itself was great, with every amenity you could want. We used the beautiful pool several times, and took advantage of the grille to cook dinner one night. Tom Mertz, the owner, was unbelievably responsive and helpful with any questions prior to and during our trip. We will definitely reach back out to Tom to rent again!
Thank you for this positive review. We try to make everyone’s stay as enjoyable as possible.
Tom and Jan Mertz
This property is well stocked, clean, tastefully decorated with all the amenities you would need for a relaxing vacation. The neighbors were wonderful, beautiful view of Fish Tale Marina where we rented a boat to fish and sightsee several times. You can walk to dining, shopping, fresh markets, spas and the beach. We can not wait to return next year!!
Thank you for the very nice review.
