Elisabeth purchased this House in 2006
Why Elisabeth chose Mid Island
We chose this property because it is very unusual to find a beachfront lot of this size in a residential neighborhood which can accommodate a pool, guest cottage and private beach area. We loved the Old Florida style of the house and we knew that it would be a perfect beach get-a -way for many years to come.
What makes this House unique
With soaring ceilings, fabulous light, an open floor plan and breathtaking views from the house and deck, this house is sure to please. It is beautifully decorated and meticulously maintained, has a private beach, heated swimming pool and separate guest cottage. A great compound with the comforts of home and everything you need to to enjoy a week on the beach.

Great view and very roomy inside.
We were pleasantly surprised with the amount of space inside. The pool house is fantastic. The view from the window in the morning of the dolphins is breathtaking. The private pool is a welcome relief from the sun in the afternoon. The house is well equipped with anything you could possibly need for the beach, in the kitchen and more! The only slight negative is some noise from Estero blvd when you’re by the pool. Otherwise We loved it! We would definitely come back!
Beachfront Bliss 5890 Estero Blvd. Fort Myers
Clean home.Well maintained and beachfront location.The views were spectacular.A great rental for our family of eight including our two grandchildren. The pool was their favorite.
W will be planning a return trip for sometime next year.
We have stayed at many beautiful houses in Fort Myers Beach since 2002 and this was one of our favorites. It is a beautiful well kept house with lots of wonderful perks. We loved having the pool as well as the private beach. The back deck has a beautiful view of the gulf which was a short distance away. The house was equipped with everything you would need. Elisabeth, the owner, was wonderful to work with. When we travel back to Fort Myers. we will definitely look to stay here again!
PERFECT for families with kids:)
We just stayed at Beachfront Bliss and it was absolutely perfect! We had 6 adults and 4 kids (ages 1,2,4,7). This house was so easy, comfortable and relaxing for our family. The HEATED pool is a must have for us and makes it so comfortable to be swimming for long periods of time. We honestly will not rent another house without a heated pool and it was the perfect temperature! We deck was stunning! Dolphins every morning! The private beach was so relaxing with the small kiddos, as we could relax on the deck with a cocktail and watch them playing without having any safety concerns. There were many sand toys. Our boys especially loved all the big trucks there to play with. We had a bonfire and relaxed on the hammocks:) Such a wonderful vacation! One negative is that the pool is very close to the main road. Was not a safety concern at all since the pool is gated in, but you do hear traffic during the day. Thanks Elizabeth!
Thank you Nicole,
I am so glad you had a wonderful vacation! The house does work out perfectly for families and I am so glad you were able to enjoy the house as I do. Please come back soon!
Beautiful house, great for our family!
We loved our stay at beachfront bliss! It was the ideal size for our family of 6, proximity to the beach could not be beat and the beautiful sunsets and sunrises from the deck were a favorite part of our trip. The pool was a great diversion for the kids and there were so many pool and sand toys provided, which was an unexpected surprise. Everything was perfectly clean and the owner was so welcoming. Thanks so much for the great stay!
Thank you so much for your kind review. I am thrilled you and your family loved the house and had a wonderful vacation! I hope to welcome you back again!
Great property right on the beach
The main house and guest house were very nice. Spacious room, comfortable furniture but the best was the back porch, the pool and the back yard with area for grandsons to play in the sand and grandparents to enjoy hammocks. Nice fire pit and grill too. Pool was perfect size and depth for 5 and 8 year olds that can swim.
Elizabeth was friendly and very helpful. She met us their and had lots of useful information. We hope to be able to return. All 7 of us gave it 5 stars.
Thank you Barbara and family for your review! I am so happy that you all had a wonderful vacation! Thank you for staying with us and I look forward to welcoming you back!
