About Dana Zuber

Back in 1979 my family came to the Ft Myers area and settled in Naples- after graduating from college at FSU I moved back to the northeast to work in NYC-

I missed my brothers and my parents very much so in 2001 we picked some rental property and when we were not visiting we would rent them out. I along with my brother and sister-in-law

manage the house. We love to entertain and being surrounded by family.

Our goal is to make your stay a special one!

Thanks for choosing our home

Dana and Greg

Dana Zuber purchased this house in 2001

Why Dana Zuber chose South Island

We love the tranquility of the Pink House's location; being on the peaceful south side of Fort Myers Beach with quick access to the bay, gulf, and beach. We fell in love with the house (we painted pink) when we first saw it. We vacation at the Pink House and hope that you can enjoy it as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

One of the most unique benefits of the Pink House is its private location directly across the street from the beach!!

Located on the south end of the island allows for easy access on and off the island! A beautiful canal view off the back of the house and a private pool that is solar heated . You may spot manatees, ospreys, and occasionally dolphins in the back canal. Lover's Key is a short walk over the bridge. Numerous restaurants within a mile and some of the best fishing, kayaking, canoeing, and beaches make this a great place to vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a great house and it's obviously owned by someone who wants to make their guests feel at home. We have stayed in many rentals over the years but I must say, this place is great and has everything you could want and need. There's no reason to even leave the house if you didn't want to. Thanks for looking after the little things that make a big difference like beach chairs that aren't falling apart and plenty of beach toys.

Wonderful stay in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the pink house. The pool was awesome and so relaxing looking out into the canal. The beach was an easy walk as well as being close to restaurants and groceries. It was great to have chairs, sand toys, carts, and towels available to use too. We wish we could have stayed longer!

Pink Shell house did not disappoint.

  • 5 of 5

Our spring break vacation was wonderful. It was the first time my granddaughter visited Florida and she didn't want to leave. The house was immaculate. We loved the beautiful pool and the easy access to the beach. I highly recommend the Pink Shell House to anyone looking for a relaxing break from the cold of winter.

Great vacation home in perfect location on the island!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Pink House! It was a perfect size for our family of 5. We loved the pool and the solar blanket kept it nice and warm even during cooler days. The kitchen was well stocked and we enjoyed the BBQ. We would definitely go back again! The only thing we would change is the mattress in the master bedroom - it wasn’t very comfortable.

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7, 6 adults and 1-year old grandchild, stayed at Pink House for one week, and the house fit our needs perfectly. The location was great with the beach being across the road. We walked the expansive beach every day, and one day we walked to Lovers Key State Park. We enjoyed the pool and being on the canal. The view of the canal is beautiful. The trolley stop is so convenient, as it is right in front of the house. The bedrooms were a nice size, and a Pack N Play was provided which was used for our 1-year old grandchild. The owners were very quick to respond to questions we had from the beginning of the booking through the end of our stay. We did use the grill a number of times, but did have some problems with the grill not heating correctly. However, the next day the matter was looked into. A bike was provided, which was nice. We also rented two additional bikes. We would definitely stay at the Pink House again!

The pink house was just as advertised. We had a party of 5 adults, a 3 month old and a 3 year old an

The pool was the highlight for us. After a morning walk on the beach (which is an easy short walk away) we’d spend the rest of the day by the pool. It was easy to reach the restaurants nearby for dinner, and a great ice cream store and shopping . The House was clean and everything worked perfectly. Having perfect weather the whole week we were there made it the perfect vacation. The directions to the house and inside the house were clear . It was easy clean up also. We also spent time at Lovers key state park which was easy to get to and had a variety of activities. We would definitely recommend this house and location and would definitely go back. Thank you.

Beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time here. It’s a well appointed house right on a canal. Caught a lot of sheepshead off the pier. Across the street to the gulf. Pool is solar heated, so a little chilly this time of year. Love the south end of the Beach. Walk to Lovers Key. It has it all!!!
