  • Awesome Family Vacation Home!

    "We cannot say enough good things about this home! It is located in a great location and everything one would want is right under one roof! The kayak was a hit, the wildlife amazing and seeing a dolphin swim down the canal was great! The owners are great to work with! We certainly felt at home! We especially appreciated that we could have brought our furry kid along if we had needed to!"

  • A Tropical Oasis

    "We recently (March 2014) spent a wonderful week at the Desert Rose. What a jewel! The layout of the house is fantastic, especially if you plan on visitors! Our college-age boys were both on Spring Break, and it was the ideal location and landing spot for them and their friends. My husband and I had lots of privacy in the Master on the 3rd floor, and were never bothered by noise and activity in the rest of the home. The pool was wonderful, I floated around in it like a manatee for hours! The artwork is great, and the entire vibe of the home was very cool and very Key West. Truly an oasis and fabulous retreat. Thanks, Skip! We'll be back! (P.S. Our dog, Buddy, was welcome and loved it too.)"

  • Our new favorite place

    "This is an amazing place. Set back off the beach to offer privacy with a view, the house has been clearly loved and updated. It is very nicely decorated, with interesting wall decor, a large dining table, and plentiful TVs (not that you will spend much time using them). The lower level is tile throughout, so sand tracked in could be swept up and taken care of. Even after getting back to the cold North, in my mind, I'm only a thought away from that great deck, that sugar sand. We were up and walking the beach, coffee in hand, every morning shortly after 7; the dolphins were a daily delight, as were the birds. We enjoyed watching the sunsets as well and just listening to the waves after the sun went down. When an issue arose over something not explained by the rental company (technology, and the company has been changed), the owner, Scott, responded to my text within seconds (on Super Bowl Sunday) with a detailed explanation. The house is on the main road across the island, and traffic would back up out front daily between us and the main bridge, but we were usually headed the other way (grocery store or Francesco's Italian store, a delightful find) or on the deck or beach, so not much of an issue. One night we walked down maybe 1/2 mile to a great restaurant. We would love to return, but for now, cherish the memories."

  • Girls weekend

    "We had the greatest time this past week. The house is fully functional, comfortable and an incredibly welcoming home. The location is unreal! we got to literally cross the street to watch the beautiful sunset every evening. What a perfect vacation. Thank you Mike and Chris, it was the time of our lives!"

The Lovers Key State Park is a great place to play, picnic, or just relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery. If you have children traveling with you they can play, but you can also walk, hike, and have a get-together there. There's also the Lovers Key Beach Club, Sanibel Captiva, and nearby Cape Coral and Bonita Springs to visit and enjoy. You can get to all of those quite easily from one of the Mid-Island vacation rentals.

Dining Near Mid-Island Beach Homes

If you're hungry for a local restaurant, try the Parrot Key Caribbean Grill and Bar, The Beached Whale, or Anthony's on the Gulf, for starters. There are so many great restaurants that you won't run out of choices to make. It's a great way to sample the local fare and really get to experience what the restaurants around the Fort Myers Beach cottages have to offer.
