Watch the dolphins jump and enjoy the beautiful sunsets from the master bedroom or balcony.

About Robert Thomas

My family and I moved to SW Florida in 2007 to escape the cold northern winters. Living in nearby Fort Myers, we scoured the area seeking a condo that offered the best of everything--a totally unobstructed view of blue Gulf waters, white silky sand on a calm beach, the shortest walk to the waves from our doorstep, and everything fun that Florida has to offer just seconds away. We found it--and so have you!

Robert Thomas purchased this condo in 2013

Why Robert Thomas chose South Island

Many properties have partial views of the beach, or have the path to the beach blocked with waterways, or are too far from the water to hear the waves relax you to sleep. Not our place! Some properties are too close to road, and you hear it. Not at this unit! Some places have a tiny pool--ours is the largest on the beach. It really is the best of all worlds.

What makes this condo unique

In our condo, you will walk from the elevator to the unit on your outside walkway, enjoying the tropical views of palm trees, Estero Bay, swimming pools, cyclists--no gloomy hallways here. When you take your first step into the unit--the gorgeous view of the beach takes your breath away. All your stress and tension slip away, and you're in the tropics!

A Gold Mine in the Sunshine State

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful condo. It would be hard to beat such an idyllic location - a fantastic view of the Gulf, dolphins and pelicans; a beach that stretches for miles; and a lagoon below the balcony frequented by snowy egrets and great egrets. The condo itself was well-appointed with everything we needed and is well appointed with comfortable beds, attractive furniture and nice pictures. The pool was warm, the grounds well-kept and stores and restaurants nearby. We will miss going to sleep every night listening to the waves.

Perfect place for relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Spent July 2017 in Roberts condo with family. It was in very good shape , everything was clean and decorated in good taste. We could find all we needed from beach umbrellas and chairs to kitchen utensils. Condo has a direct Gulf View and we spotted dolphins right from the balcony. Sunsets over Sanibel were breathtaking. Access to pool, beach, parking are all few steps away. The premises also had a nice shuffleboard and BBQ area. Would definitely come again!

2nd time in this great apartment

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at Robert's apartment and it was just as wonderful as the first time.

The location is wonderful right on the beach. Within 300 yards from the complex is a plaza with 7 restaurants and several bars. The apartment had everything we wanted, except, as a Brit, the only things missing were a kettle and tea pot.

I will stay here again in a heart beat.

Car: recommended

Located on the quieter end of world famous Fort Myers Beach, your condo is ten steps to the beach, a walk to numerous restaurants and shops, and a convenient trolley ride or drive to literally hundreds of resort attractions. Dine on the waterfront, dance into the night, shop at dozens of specialty shops. Enjoy, and come back to your peaceful escape. Sip a beverage and take in the sensational sunsets from beach below, or from your lanai (that's Florida-speak for balcony).
