Recent Private Homes, Mid Island property reviews

  • Great place!

    "Loved staying at this location. It was just as advertised and as photographed. Nice and clean interior, pool was good size. A little off the beaten path which made it very quiet to relax by the pool, yet an easy 2 minute walk to beach. Chris was good to work with and had answers to all our questions. Would definitely stay here again."

  • 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!"

  • Great Beach Home

    "My family of 8 stayed here for a winter break with our parents. First time I have done the "rent a house" for vacation thing. I was a little leery but was comforted by all the reviews. We too had a great time. The reservation, payment and check-in process was easy which I was a little worried about. The house was perfect for our big group and we were thrilled with how close we were to the beach! Great location!! We ate in for most breakfasts and lunches. The kitchens were small but fully stocked. The big table for 10 was great. We used the trolley for night ventures to the "Time Square" area. No car worries ... There are also a lot of restaurants to the south ( take a right on Estero) that we enjoyed too. We didn't know until half way through our trip (wish we had known sooner) but there is a free downloadable app for the trolley that alerts you when the trolley will be coming to whatever stop you choose to enter. It uses GPS and was super accurate. No sitting and waiting on the trolley. When it got close, we would know to get our bill and drink up. The house was very clean and comfortable. We had 10 people. Everyone had enough room to spread out. Also, we liked the king and queen beds vs. the twins a lot of the other homes offered. Great for the couples in the group. The pool was perfect for us. The 1st morning the water was pretty cool, but we learned It would stay warm as long as we kept the cover on during the night. Kids loved the basketball hoop. Us, "older kids" had quite a few hours of fun before sunset time playing some mean games of water volleyball. Right before sunset we would load up the beach cart with a cooler and head to the beach. The beach was clean with the whitest of sand. Nice home—Not, alot of high rises! My biggest complaint was that I never got to see a dolphin but everyone else in our group seemed to! I definitely would recommend it to my friends."
