We live in Beach Haven, NJ and have three children.

PAUL AND KATHY REIFF purchased this house in 2011

Why PAUL AND KATHY REIFF chose Mid Island

We bought a house in Fort Beach Myers Beach because we love all the activity. There is so much to do! we love Florida's palm trees and all the beauty of the foliage. The sand is so soft it feels like baby powder!

What makes this house unique

We love a day of relaxing at the beach. Then returning to take a dip in the canalside pool or sit in the hot tub and watch the boating and wildlife action. Our house is surrounded by beautiful houses and is on a treelined street. The trolley stops at the end of our street if we want to go to Times square. Santini Plaza is 1 mile south where you can enjoy many restaurants, watch a movie, eat ice cream or rent a boat. The Outrigger is close if you'd like to have a drink at the tiki bar and hear live music.

Not as great as it could have been

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at this home from 12/28-1/4/18. The home is nice but has some issues.

The main bathrooms toilet is broken and had to be fixed every time it flushed. This was a hassle for my husband with our daughters using it often. The dryer does not work well it needed 3 cycles to dry one load. The beach buggy had a broken wheel and we were unable to use this at all. We had to buy toilet paper and dish soap. The HVAC system has issues and would not heat as it was cold a few days we were there. The owner had text me at 6am the first night for me to get up and check all the doors and windows, which I did and they were all shut properly. This issue remained the entirety of our stay and the owner had us texting her whenever we wanted a change. There is limited (very limited) blankets so bundling up was not an option. This leads me to the hot tub (the main reason I rented this location) I enjoy the hot tub daily and when we arrived our rental neighbors who were renting the other half of the duplex were sitting in cold water with bubbles. I reached out to the lady we rented from and informed her that this was an issue as I wanted to be able to use it daily and as often as I would like. The codes they gave us and the other renters did not work it turns out the owners actually control it remotely and we had to again text her every time we wanted it on or the heat up higher. This was a HUGE inconvenience and I found myself spending a large amount of time in contact with her for both myself and the other renters on the other side. This was not how it should have happened. Huge disappointment. The proximity to the beach is great and for that its a good rental but for $$$$ for the week we were there I don't feel like we got a great deal. My advice to the owners is when you have what could be a gem that close to the beach you should treat it like a gem and you would have better luck. Also treat your guests well so they return and refer others.

Great home and location!

  • 5 of 5

We choose this home for our spring break vacation and had a wonderful time. The home was very clean and had everything we could think of. The beach was a short walk and they provided everything we needed to enjoy our time at the beach as well. The owners gave us lots of great advice on things to do and places to eat My kids really enjoyed the pool and we enjoyed the hot tub. It was a very quiet location but very close to a trolley stop so we took the trolley downtown to enjoy shopping and restaurants without the parking hassles. We highly recommend this property and would go back for a future vacation!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property with our children for a week over Christmas, and it was a fantastic vacation. The home is beautiful, very clean and supplied with everything we could have possibly needed. The owners left thorough instructions on everything in the home, and some great tips for activities in the area. The location is perfect, just a few minute walk to the beach, and close to shopping, restaurants, etc. we would highly recommend this property!

Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 2 weeks here and loved our stay. The house was very clean and had all the amenities we required. The kids had a fantastic time playing in the pool and the location was perfect. Walking distance to the beach and many great restaurants. We would recommend this home to others. Looking forward to our next Florida vacation.
