Experience a special place where the sand is sugar white and the palm trees gently sway in the warm gulf breeze. Located on some of the most pristine coastline in Florida, this will be your vacation to renew your mind and spirit. Enjoy the calming sound of the waves as they gently caress the shoreline. The days are filled with carefree sun drenched fun, while the sunsets illuminate the sky with a fiery brilliance unique to the West Coast. If you’re truly looking to get away, it doesn’t get any better than our little slice of heaven on Fort Myers Beach.

Our crystal-clear pool overlooks the white sand and turquoise waters of the Gulf. Take in a game of shuffleboard or just collapse into a chaise lounge and relax! Fire up one of our gas grills and enjoy a great barbecue with family and new friends. When you need a bit of shade just relax under the Gulf front Tiki Hut.

Ideal Fort Myers Beach Location….

Seaside only feels a million miles away from the everyday. We’re actually right in the heart of Fort Myers Beach. Conveniently located just across the street you’ll find a Publix Supermarket perfect for keeping your fridge full. Don’t feel like eating in? Superb dining is to be had at The Bayfront Bistro. Want to take a break from the beach? Boat rentals at Snook Bite Marina are also right across the street. The marina features boat rentals, kayak rentals as well as storage for your boat. The truth is you’ll be within walking distance to all the best Fort Myers has to offer, including shopping, dining and nightlife.

Convenient to restaurants, shops, movie theater and golf. Colonial Bank, Island Hair Gallery, 7-11 within a mile. Located at the middle of the island, this condo is the perfect retreat for couples and families. Close enough to water sports, fishing and shopping. A mile away is Charley's Boat House Grill which has been a local favorite for over 25 years. Also we are close to the Outrigger.

Forget your watch at home, bask in the sun, walk the beach, and enjoy the tropical flowers on Fort Myers Beach where tomorrow will be just as tough!

About Don and Karen Ostendorf

We bought this condo because we know that visitors to the beach want to see the water 24/7. The beach is 7 miles of nice sand and I love to have a reason to go the beach every day.

Don and Karen Ostendorf purchased this Condo in 2017

Why Don and Karen Ostendorf chose 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.

What makes this Condo unique

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. Karen, 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.

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.

                                                                  Kathleen T.

                                                                  We recently stayed in this condo for the second time. Everything about it is perfect. In my opinion, it's the best location on the beach. Publix grocery store is right across the street, no need to get in the car at all. The trolley to town stops right out front, and the view of the ocean, sunsets and dolphins can't be beat. The condo itself is well stocked, and the owners are very easy to talk to if needed. Looking forward to coming again.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  We are here for you...

You have a screened lanai so you can have your coffee and breakfast watching the dolphins, or drinks and dinner watching the sunset! The master bedroom has sliding door to the lanai, so you can open the door to feel the breeze and listen to the waves! Master bath has a walk in shower, and a closet that is large enough to store your empty suitcases. Owners have provided all the vacation supplies you may want to use, such as the cooler, umbrella, fishing rod, beach towels, and personal chairs if you want to take out onto the ocean sand. The complex has comfortable lounge chairs for sunning, and a beautiful heated pool and gas grills to use. This is two bedroom, two bath unit so very comfortable and room for four people The kitchen is totally ready for any cooking, with grocery store directly across the street which is very convenient. The island trolley stop is also right in front and very easy to move about the island or walking the sand is also so relaxing. The complex is directly on the beach, you are literally steps from the sand! We loved this stay! The location is mid-island so can easily walk or drive to nearby restaurants and shopping. The complex has a convenient elevator, laundry facilities available and very secure setting as far as needing a code for entry etc. We are so looking forward to return stay! Don and Karen Ostendorf are always available by phone and available to answer any questions or address any concerns.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

People playing on the beach with Fishermen catching numerous things. Also walking on the sandbar just off shore, there were Stingrays in the sand. The beach is very much alive. The Publix directly across the street is a major plus also.

                                                                  Owner's Response:
