Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Carlos Pointe Beach Club is one of the most desirable destinations in Southwest Florida. Located directly on the Gulf of Mexico, our unit is a completely remodeled 2 bed/2 bath condo featuring new tile throughout, new cabinets, new bathrooms, and a new kitchen. Call or email for discounted rates. I'm on twitter too: atbillhavertape

The condo is decorated in a comfortable island motif. There is a complete kitchen, a TV in each bedroom, cable, DVD, VCR, in unit Wi-Fi, and stereo in the living room, which ensures you will not miss the comforts of home.

Just below your gulf facing lanai are miles of sugar white beach. While enjoying the world class shelling along the beach, be sure to keep an eye out for diving pelicans, manatees, and dolphins which will be hunting the fish rich waters.

It’s just a short walk over the drawbridge spanning Big Carlos Pass, there you’ll find yourself at the entrance to Lover’s Key State Park. The Travel Channel has rated the state park beach as one of Florida’s Top Ten Beaches.

Whether at the state park or on our gigantic private beach out front, this end of the island provides lots of good surf fishing. If you are so inclined, nightly meals of fresh snook, trout, redfish, whiting, pompano, and mackerel are entirely possible. To prepare your catch, there is a private grill patio at the south end of the building just around the corner from our private beachside pool, recreation room and Sunset Patio. There are also many local restaurants that will prepare your catch, should you choose to dine out.

There is a stop for the Island Trolley right next to our free parking lot. It is just a short ride to Times Square at the north end of the island. There you will find a more active nightlife scene including dozens of shops, open air restaurants, bars, street performers, live entertainment, a public beach, as well as, the famous Fort Myers Beach Pier.

We have a king sized bed in the master bedroom, two twin beds in the second bedroom, and a pullout bed in the sofa. We provide linens, towels, beach chairs, beach towels, and a beach cooler which can be iced down with ice from the ice maker in the refrigerator.

Sliding glass doors will take you out to the lanai from the living room, and from the master bedroom. Enjoy the quiet breeze on the lanai as you drink your morning coffee or evening cocktail.

Smoking and pets are prohibited. This is one of the finest units in the complex. You won’t be disappointed!

If you see a nearby open week on our calendar, “Name Your Own Price” and we’ll make a deal. An occupied condo at reduced price is way better than an empty one!

Weekly rates vary from $800 to $1900 depending on season and DO NOT include State and Local tax which combined, equal 11%, and do not include the $100 - $125 Cleaning fee. Refundable Deposit required to guarantee booking. During busier times we really need to try and stick with or normal Saturday to Saturday rental rotation. In late April to late May and then again mid Aug to Mid Dec, we can be more flexible on the Saturday to Saturday requirement.

About Bill Havertape

Bill and Brenda live in Iowa. Bill is a futures broker, and Brenda teaches high school math.

Bill Havertape purchased this condo in 2010

Why Bill Havertape chose South Island

We have been visiting Carlos Pointe since 2005, and have traveled to several other places in Florida on our many visits. Carlos Pointe is our favorite place to stay. In 2009, we made the decision to purchase a unit at Carlos Pointe Beach Club. Then, in 2010, our dreams became realized. We enjoy shelling, fishing, walking the beach, watching the pelicans, dolphins, manatees, and the sunsets.

What makes this condo unique

As a bonus for nature lovers, for a few months each spring and summer, our beach becomes an extension of the Little Estero Island Critical Wildlife Area. There are 18 active Critical Wildlife Areas in all of Florida. Our beach serves as the southern border of Little Estero CWA, the only Critical Wildlife Area located in Lee County.

Roger Tory Peterson, famed ornithologist and author of the 'First Modern Field Guide To Birding' visited Little Estero Island and declared it 'possibly the best place in the world to photograph shorebirds'.

During the spring and summer months, our beach becomes prime nesting territory for sea turtles and a few of the estimated 150 species of birds that visit our island annually. We consider it a great privilege to serve as host for these animals during nesting season. While they raise their young each summer, we'll reserve some of our huge beach as a sanctuary. This provides outstanding observation opportunities right outside our back door. During this period, we allow the native beach vegetation to regrow to provide cover. Some of our beach does get restricted from human activity during this period. Don't worry though, the birds and turtles are very willing to compromise on beach space. So, you will still have plenty of beach to use! As soon as the baby birds are grown and done nesting, we'll remove the restricted areas and resume grooming operations. So, if you want to enjoy the birds, it's best to book between April and August!

Beautiful area!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here the end of April and beginning of May. The condo was very clean and had everything we needed. From beach chairs, umbrellas, beach towels and even inside activities .

The pool area was much nicer than it appears in the photos. The beach in front of the condo is beautiful!. There was red tide happening when we were there so there was a lot of dead fish that washed up on shore so you couldn’t get in the water. I don’t know if I’d want to, as there’s a bit of boat/ jet ski traffic being right at the edge of Big Carlos Pass. That didn’t bother us though. It is literally a 5 min drive to Bonita Springs where there are beautiful beaches as well!

The owners were very nice to deal with as well. We really enjoyed our stay😊?

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this condo! The location and view were fabulous. The beds especially the master bedroom (where we slept) were absolutely wonderful. The bedding has been updated since the photos and the sheets are so soft I thought they were better than my home sheets I love so much! The homeowners couldn't have been nicer and more accommodating to us. They were awesome! It was a pleasure staying in this condo of theirs and we would certainly recommend to anyone and would definitely book again when we return to that area. Overall a great experience!

Perfect for our family for spring break!

  • 5 of 5

The condo had everything we needed. The beds and furniture were comfortable, the kitchen was equipped with essentials and the washer/dryer was a bonus. Waking up to that view every morning was wonderful!! The beach was quiet and the dolphins were out throughout the day.

Absolutely Fabulous!!!

  • 5 of 5

This property was the best!!! And the owners, Bill & Brenda, even better. We had everything we needed in the condo. Truly is the quiet end of the island, but only 5-6 miles to "Time Square" at Fort Meyers Beach where the nightlife & action is. We would HIGHLY recommend this property.

We will use it again, when we return to Fort Meyers Beach.
