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!

About Ann Marie Fox

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.

Ann Marie Fox purchased this House in 1998

Why Ann Marie Fox chose Mid Island

Quaint, quiet, and relaxing vacation home!

What makes this House unique

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!

                                                                    Natalie C.Michigan

                                                                    We had the best Christmas vacation ever! The house is very nice and well kept and had everything we needed. We have 3 teenagers and had plenty of room. The backyard (pool) was our perfect "oasis". The house was perfectly located in Ft. Meyers Beach.... far enough from the main shops and restaurants, a minute walk to the beach which was perfect to go see the sunset every night. Publix grocery store minutes down the street and had everything you needed even beach and toy necessities. Lots to do from shopping, restaurants, beaching, parasailing, renting watercrafts etc. One tip I would mention is that there is only one way in and one way out! So keep that in mind if you are venturing to dinner or off the island as you can get stuck in traffic for a little longer than expected. It's not a big deal and we figured it out after the second day! We loved the house and closeness to the beach that we didn't really need to travel all that much! Thanks Ann Marie for being a great host and "on call" for any needs. We hope to come back in the near future!

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    You are terrific guests and I look forward to your visit again. I am lucky that I'm only a mile and a half to "The Pier" so with a bit of traffic, there may be a small wait to travel a mile.. but the payoff is far greater ( Nice sunny weather in December!!!) Thanks again for being one of the best guests I have ever had and I look forward to your return. !

                                                                    Matt B.

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    We have visited this home twice and will absolutely be back again! It has everything you could possibly want in Fort Myers. It was wonderful to walk to the beach, take a dip in the pool or hot tub, and a stroll to the fun tourist area! We loved all the restaurants nearby! Ann Marie has been a very gracious hostess every time we have visited. We love this place!

                                                                    Perfect Place for Quiet Relaxing Vacation

                                                                    jackie@chicagolegal.com H.

                                                                    My college roommates and I spent a week at this beautiful home that is a stones throw to a beautiful beach that was never crowded. The home is updated, very clean, and has a wonderful relaxing atmosphere. We spent hours floating in the private pool after walking or sitting for a few hours on the beach. There is a great upscale fresh fish restaurant and an ocean front bar with casual food within walking distance of the home. We did take the Trolley to the pier once, but once was enough for the pier. I do wish there were a few more restaurants within walking distance, but the private pool and the location of the home to the beach outweighed that drawback. I would definitely stay here again. The owner Ann Marie was very helpful and is very hands on as far as managing the property.

                                                                    Owner's Response:

It was a pleasure having you as guests, and come back soon!



                                                                    Great Ft Myers Location

                                                                    Nancy S.

                                                                    My husband and I had a wonderful stay at this cute beach home. The owner is charming, responsive, and helpful. The house is as pictured, very clean. Everything you need, like you are staying at a friend's house. We cooked at the house several times (because we loved the fresh gulf shrimp), and found the kitchen well equipped. Brand new grill, nice stove, dishwasher. It is a short walk to a beautiful beach; fat tire bikes are provided. Riding bikes on the beach was one of our favorite things. The hot tub is very unique. We enjoyed it a number of times, though it was too cold for us to use the pool. We also enjoyed the screen room; you could hear the waterfall, and be outside even if it was raining.

                                                                    We did have cool, rainy weather, but found lots to do anyway. Had a wonderful dinner at the Fresh Catch Bistro, which is close enough to walk to. The Mound House just down the street is worth a visit. We spent a morning exploring the park at Lover's Key. We ventured out to the Naples Zoo and the Botanical Gardens, which were both well worth the trip, as long as you can deal with the traffic. We spent a rainy afternoon downtown at the House of Brewz, which has probably 50 craft beers on tap.

                                                                    We definitely hope to stay here again. It was comfortable, close to the beach, but far enough from the hub-bub of the downtown area. There are a variety of things to do in the area, but we were pretty happy at the beach.

                                                                    Owner's Response:

Its always nice to hear about guest comments and the many things we have to do here on Fort Myers Beach. It's nice to have guests that offer new ideas for things to do! Take care and I hope to see you back here soon!

While the weather did not cooperate, the amenities at the house made it a great trip. Bring yourself, groceries, and your favorite beverage - everything else you need is there! Would definitely stay again.
