Private Homes, Mid Island house description

Beach Access home at Fort Myers Beach, Florida. (just 4 minute walk to Ocean Access #16).

Sleeps 10, 5 bedrooms, +2 children on sofa sleepers, $300 PER PERSON PLUS TAX for every person over 10. The maximum occupancy is 12 people.

Located in a more sedate family atmosphere, this lovely vacation getaway has all the amenities and is just a short walk (4min.) down the street and around the corner to the beach or just up the road to some good food and entertainment.

This stilt home comes with all the comforts and conveniences of some of the best resorts available in Florida. The full kitchen has every appliance needed along with an outdoor dining area on upstairs deck and another outdoor bar and snack area downstairs near the pool.

You will love the heated pool and spa, while listening to the private waterfall in your own little gated paradise. It is fully equipped for family enjoyment or just that quiet time needed to get away for a bit.

Downstairs in the home is one Queen bedroom with full bath and the family room has a pool table with 2 couches-no sofa beds and a 42' Flat screen television for fun times.

Upstairs there is 1 King bedroom with flat screen and 3 Queen bedrooms, plus dining room, kitchen and living room which has 2 Queen sofabeds (CHILDREN ONLY ON SOFABEDS0 NO EXCEPTIONS) plus a 42' flat screen television plus WI-FI.

'Home-4632 is the icon on your I phones. The password will be available in the home upon arrival.

The entire property is fenced with 2 gates, so if you have children, you will not have to worry about them wandering off.

Fort Myers Beach is actually a part of Lee County's Estero Island, a narrow strip of land that is one mile wide at its widest point. Though, it is best known for its near perfect climate, abundant sunkissed sandy beaches and ideal location for enjoying a wide range of water sports, this city offers much more than just a beach break for the vacationer.

The city is home to two golf courses and has abundant shopping and find dining restaurants. Times Square is the hub of shopping and dining on the beach.

This is the place to go if you are interested in nature as there are many birds living on the beach and in the mangroves.

This is also a great spot for shelling, boating, kayaking, bicycling, jetskiing, parasailing, swimming and of course, just taking a nap and getting a tan. You can rent equipment right there on Estero Blvd. At Ocean Access 16, where you go over to the beach, walk left and the rental place is on the beach.

There is a Publix Grocery within 1/4 mile, a library, marina, small restaurants, and the trolley stop is beside the ocean access #16 which you can ride up and down Estero Blvd. on for a minimal fee of 50 cents. Ride down to Lover's Key one day - you will thoroughly enjoy the trip.

Since Estero island is very narrow, you can walk to the back bay and there are many uninhabited keys within the bay that play host to hundreds of different species of birds, plants and mammals.

We offer a beach cooler that you can pull to carry your drinks/food to the beach, also some beach chairs and we also offer a 7 1/2' Unbrella and sand anchor.

Please take only beach chairs provided to ocean.
