About Jerry Kemp

Bobbi and I have owned a 1940 beach cottage on Sterling Ave (one house back from the beach) since 2003 and have retired here in 2009. Our Island has everything you could want, beautiful sugar soft sand beaches, fabulous sunsets, great restaurants, fun bars, and unique shops. It is a cool, safe, funky Island. As we like to say, 'This is Paradise'

Why Jerry Kemp chose Mid Island

Steps from the sugar white sand of Fort Myers Beach. Quiet location with an easy walk to an Island full of activity. Restaurants, bars, grocery store, theater just 1/2 to 1 mile from your beach house.

What makes this house unique

Fantastic sunsets, un-crowded beaches, jet ski rental 300 yards away. Our beach is walker-friendly and easy to bike ride. Dolphins are just steps away from your door.

Ft. Myers Beach

  • 5 of 5

We all absolutely loved this home. Everything was there - beach towels, toys, carts to haul everything; great laundry facilities; some condiments - even a lighter for the grill! The beach is right across the street. Beautiful home. We will definitely be back!!

Paradise on Estero Beach

  • 5 of 5

From the very moment that I started searching for a last minute home for Labor Day Weekend.

I ran across Jerry Kemp's property on Estero Beach, Bonita Springs, FL and inquired about the availability. Jerry replied quickly and we even spoke several times prior to departing to the house.

I can't think of one negative thing regarding this property and the owner; excellent service and an incredible house full of a plethora of activities for all ages, in addition to being across the street from the beach.

Will certainly return with my family for a longer duration. I highly recommend this property to anyone who wants to be by the beach, or is simply looking for some R&R.

Thanks Jerry!

House was perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was huge and accommodated all 6 of us perfectly! It's right across the street from the beach easy to carry everything over there. They had all the chairs we needed with a carrier for the chairs. They had umbrellas there also. Lots of noodles and boogie boards! We would definitely stay at this house again!!

Can't get much better than this!

  • 5 of 5

This home is wonderful! Plenty of room for a large family and a very reasonable price compared to cramming everyone in two small hotel rooms. Comfortable with lots of things included (games for kids, pool table, and all sorts of things for the beach). The location can't be much better - just walk across the street to the beach. And this particular section of beach has no public parking lot and no large hotels nearby, so it's not very crowded. The water is shallow for a long way out, so it's perfect for children. Soft sand and lots of shells. The jet-ski rental is just another minute walk down the beach. Publix (grocery) nearby. Generally a quiet area of town. Shaded front porch with great ocean breeze to spend relaxing out of the sun on hot afternoons. Our whole family enjoyed it so much. We would definitely rent this home again.
