About Mark McHenney

My wife and I have lived in Wheaton, IL all our married life. We have three children with the two oldest in college and the youngest in high school. I am a computer programmer and my wife is a stay at home mother and philanthropist. We love nature and being outside.

Mark McHenney purchased this condo in 2013

Why Mark McHenney chose South Island

We had never been to Fort Myers Beach before a spring break vacation in 2013. We loved it. The water, sun, shells, biking, nature, and even the shopping were awesome. Three weeks after leaving we bought this condominium and have no regrets.

What makes this condo unique

I love the fact that once I am there, I never have to get in my car (unless I want to). I can walk or take the bus to all the vacation activities. The marina and restaurants are across the street. A nice public golf course is a couple blocks away. The grocery, theater, and shopping are less than a mile by island trolley.

Very relaxing, excellent view

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the condo. We had a great view of sunrise from the windows & the sunset was beautiful from the beach. great location away from the construction going on in the north part of the island. Enjoyed some great bike rides, pool was nice & trolley stop was right near the property. Nice restaurants across the street with a market that sold fresh fruit & vegetables every day. Enjoyed a few barbecues from the gas barbecue right outside the building.Enjoyed the evenings sitting on the deck after coming back from listening to music at Pinchers Tiki Bar that was a 5 minute walk up the beach. Condo had everything we needed & was very comfortable & well maintained.

Condo was perfect for our family. It had everything we needed and was clean and well maintained. Estero Beach and Tennis Club is located steps from clean white sand and beautiful water and shops and restaurants are a five minute walk. We hope to return again next year. Thanks for sharing your home with us!

Honest Review

  • 4 of 5

The shower in the bathroom needs a treatment of some sort to ensure safety in terms of it being slippery. The mirror/medicine cabinet should be replaced in my opinion. The water pressure at the bathroom sink was almost non-existent. The pillows on the bed were too flat and hard and should be replaced. The oven door handle needs repair. Other than all the fore-going it was a great stay except for all the rain and wind in January.

Pleasant short stay

  • 4 of 5

The condo building was very nice, but the common areas could use some updating. The grounds were beautifully manicured and the beach was perfect. The pool was a bit too warm, but other guests said that was unusual - my husband liked it this way. We were only staying for a week, so relied on their comparision.

The owner was VERY helpful guiding us through our first and very satisfactory rental experience with VRBO.

The condo itself could also use a bit of updating, though it had been updated more recently than the hallways - it met our needs as it is. It was comfortable and basically clean. It could have been a little cleaner. Some crumbs were missed on the floor along the cabinets and there was dried residue very visible between the cabinet and the refrigerator - despite this, there were no bugs, so it was obviously normally cleaned a bit better. The only real problem, was the closet. We couldn't use it to hang any clothes. It smelled like the vacuum cleaner that was stored in there.

As I had reviewed so many rental options, I cannot remember which beach equipment was to have been available with this condo, but there was only one beach chair and no beach umbrella - 2 chairs and an umbrella would have made our stay perfect.

We will definitely look to rent the same condo again and for a longer period of time when we next visit Florida.

Thanks so much for sharing your condo at such a reasonable rate! Bed was comfortable, condo clean. There is plenty to do in the area. Loved the beach and the birds! This was our third year renting at Estero Beach and Tennis Club because we just love it there! Always hate to leave that paradise! The people there were very friendly. Thanks Mark for being prompt at answering e mails and sending information. Hoping to rent from you again next year!

The owner was great, he answered all the questions we had and was very helpful. Thanks for the great stay!!
