About Jim Vaughan

We are Northerners by birth, but love the Fort Myers Beach location and surrounding area. This is our second home where our entire family gets to spend time in the white sands of the Gulf of Mexico. We hope you can share our home and our joy in this magnificent location.

Jim Vaughan purchased this house in 2008

Why Jim Vaughan chose Mid Island

We were so lucky to have this home made available to us by our family member who had lived there for over 20 years. Once we had the opportunity to buy a beach house in Florida, we jumped at it - and have never regretted it.

What makes this house unique

The wonderful thing about the Fort Myers area is the variety of activities available to any type of person. Laying on the beach all day to jet-skiing with the dolphins. The variety of restaurants is unbelievable and the area hosts two major league baseball training camps; professional football in Tampa and Miami; and even hockey for us displaced Northerners.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Visiting Everglades + Sanibel. Staying on the beach.

This house gave us a wonderful springbreak!

Excellent relaxing vacation spot!

  • 4 of 5

My wife, our daughter, son-in-law and four grandchildren stayed here from October 12th to the 17th. We found all the amenities to be perfect including chairs, umbrella and toys to take to the beach during our stay. The pool and beach consumed our days. It was exactly what we were looking for and I hope to stay here again someday. The coffee maker didn't work our first morning. I called the owner, Jim, and he was on it and had a new one delivered. Thank you for helping creating a great memory for our family.

Vacation in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the Casamare house for a week and were extremely pleased with the home and it's amenities, we all felt very comfortable as we would have in our own home. The rental experience through VRBO and the owner of the home was GREAT I did not feel like a customer more as a wanted guest, the location of the home is right in the middle of Fort Myers Beach and has quick accessibility to the rest of the beach (a 2 block walk to the beach) or the Fort Myers area. My family and I will try to rent the Casamare home in the future.

Wonderful accommodation

  • 5 of 5

After driving over 2 days from Canada, we were greatly relieved to find that this vacation rental was all that we had hoped for. The photos and the description of all that it offers are accurate. The house is very clean and well maintained. Gaining access to the house was seamless, and the instructional binder that the owners provided was very thorough and easy to follow. The house is located mid-island in a quiet, residential neighborhood, away from the main street traffic. We started every day on the enclosed veranda, which overlooks the lovely pool, hot tub and landscaped yard. The beach, which is only a 4 minute walk away, is pet friendly for leashed dogs. It's kept very clean, and you can walk (or bike) for miles. We appreciated that two bikes were available for our use. We stayed at this accommodation for 4 weeks, and found that it was very well equipped - didn’t need to buy anything unexpected. The grocery store is a quick 5 minute drive away. You're also within easy driving distance for golf, outlet shopping, Fort Myers, Naples and Everglade City. We would definitely recommend this accommodation to friends and family.
