Private Homes, Mid Island house description

Waterfall pool, spa, and sunsets...escape to this little treasure surrounded by frangipani, palm trees, and jasmine. My home is nestled in a quiet neighborhood, yet it is just 200 feet to the Gulf of Mexico,and stunning sunsets...
My Key West-style home is remodeled throughout 'island style' in soft greens and corals; stainless appliances; granite counters. The master bedroom has a queen-size bed with extra luxurious mattress top and has a private bathroom. The guest room has two twin beds; and can convert to a king bed if needed, with a full bathroom for guests. The living room has 2 sofas for comfortable seating/ one is a queen sleeper.

Enjoy views of the lagoon pool from the kitchen while preparing a meal or a drink. Dine in the screened lanai overlooking the pool or enjoy the sights and sounds of nature dining out on the brick patio. Pictures do not do my home justice, it is a little gem and my guests keep coming back year after year.

Of course the highlight of my home is the pool, heated to 88 degrees year round and surrounded by beautiful foliage..Coconut trees, frangipani, and jasmine surround the pool for peaceful surroundings, perfect for reading a book ,casual entertaining...and a perfect setting for your relaxation. The sound of the spa's waterfalls is heard throughout your day. Enjoy the hot tub in early evening with a cool drink.

Hi speed internet,wireless, dvd and 3 tv's are in my home along with 4 beach bikes,coolers, large beach umbrella, beach towels and all the necessities for the beach. My home is on a 'beach access' street so no need to walk the highway to get to the beach.

Our beach is seven miles long, and has a variety of beachside restaurants, live music, friendly locals and plenty of shops. Ft Myers beach has a variety of activites while you're here, whether its a boat trip, Sunset cruises, eco walks along the beach, kayaking, jet skiing, parasailing, Spas, all offered on our beach. You can walk to many of these establishments or enjoy a trolley ride to 'Times Square'. The 'pier' is a favorite place to gather at sunset while enjoying a cocktail...My home is only 1 1/2 mile to the pier. Grocery stores are within a mile of my home.

Besides local amenities listed below; Naples famous 3rd Street south and fine dining on Fifth avenue are just a short drive south, World class Golf courses surround Fort Myers and Naples, Disney World
Orlando is just three hours away, Busch Gardens is 2 hours away, and Sanibel/Captiva Islands , The shelling capital of the world is only 20 minutes away. ...and should you feel the need for some alligator sightings...well then Everglades City is just an hour 1/2 south.... Miami, one of the most unique cities in Florida offering a diversity of restaurants, art museums, cultural events, shopping and more....is just 1 1/2 hours away on East coast of Florida.

Key West is a lovely day trip by boat with departures daily from Fort Myers Beach, or enjoy one of the many world class golf courses in our area. Fishing Charters
from Fort Myers Beach are
also available.

Whether you are looking for a romantic escape or a family gathering, my home is a treasure waiting to be found...and you just might be lucky enough to be here when the banana tree sprouts its annual spread of tasty exotic bananas for your morning breakfast. If not, well then 2 grocery stores are 1 mile away!

                          Year Purchased: 1998

                          About the owner: I am a business professional in the area, and work for a local TV station. I love Florida and spend as much time at my beach rental as possible! I love the beach and have lived in the area 25 years. Some of the best times I have had are walking and biking along the 7 mile Gulf of Mexico. You just never know what you will see! I have many many repeat customers and I hope you will be one of them. I can help you with travel ideas once you are here, so feel free to call me.

                          Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Mid Island:
                          Quaint, quiet, and relaxing vacation home!

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          There are unique benefits to renting a private home, rather than a condo. You are on vacation so take advantage of it! Unique benefits to my home are privacy from the busy streets; peaceful setting; and the chance to have your own pool and spa without sharing with other condo guests. My home will feel like your own. I have made it comfortable for all .When you are in my home, you have a complete view of outdoors, and the pool area which makes you feel like you are living in nature; with all of the palm trees, frangipani and the sound of the waterfall spa....it is wonderful. You will not want to leave!
