Fort Myers Beach: Welcome to the beautiful barrier islands of Fort Myers Beach-Estero Island and San Carlos Island – where the sun shines nearly every day and the average temperature is 74 degrees. Beaches are probably the No.1 attraction, with the turquoise blue to bright green waters of the Gulf of Mexico lapping at the silky, white sands and seashells – for the collector in everyone. Called the “world’s safest beach”, it’s an ideal site for family vacations, for there are no steep drop-offs, riptides or undertows.
Everywhere you go, wildlife is abundant. Shore birds such as egrets,pelicans,spoonbills,seagulls and herons are found near every body of water, from the gulf to the back bay. Sometimes, even the bald eagle can be spotted soaring over our islands. Fishing and boating are popular pastimes for residents and visitors alike – there are even restaurants you can get to by boat for lunch on (or near) the high seas. Yes, the comforts of civilization are evident as well. The m...moreless

Karen and Don,
Thank you so much for renting the beach house. We loved our stay in FMB and look forward to a return visit in December. While we were in Florida we looked at buying a home in Fort Myers and to become full time residents
Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: We bought this house for retirement as it is small, cute, and cozy. It is about 900 sq. ft. and has everything we need including a dock and the canal so we have easy access to fishing. We are now at retirement age and still feel the same way after many visits to the island. Our cottage is all on the ground level, we have 7-11 at the end of the street, our own beach access and plenty of privacy in our lanai if we just want to lounge by the pool.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Mid Island: I think the weather was the deciding factor. We are from the Midwest and here in Minnesota, summer is too short. The flowers and the palm trees are so therapeutic that we couldn't resist. We also like the mid-island location as we can access the South end bridge or the North end bridge so it is very convenient.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We have all the comforts of home. We like to think that we have covered all the details and we know our guests appreciate the amenities that we have to make their vacation special.
I stayed at your Beach Bungalow at beautiful Ft. Myers Beach the first
week of March. I'm an amateur photographer and took about 400 photos
while I was there, one of which I submitted to the Star Tribune website
for their gallery of vacation photos. Well, they printed it in the Travel
Section of yesterday's paper (Sunday May 17th). It made me very happy to
be able to share my vacation memories with the paper's readers. Here's a
copy for your enjoyment. Feel free to use it anyway you wish to market
your wonderful beach house.
