About Mark and Pat Dirsa

We are in the service business and Love providing

exceptional service!! Cleanliness!! is very important to us

Mark and Pat Dirsa purchased this house in 2013

Why Mark and Pat Dirsa chose Iona

Some day this will be our retirement home, we love everything about it. We can take the bus from the airport to the house and spend days without driving a car, everything is so close.

What makes this house unique

The master bedroom/bathroom suite is on one side of the house, the other bedrooms and large bathroom on the other end upstairs. With guests and family, we still have our privacy. The big 1/2 acre lot lets you spread-out, make a little noise without disturbing neighbors.

During tourist season Fort Myers gets busy and this private street is a great refuge from the rest of the world. Unbelievable Fishing and Golf Too.

Just like HOME away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Fort Myers for 5 years and we've done plenty of traveling elsewhere, and this home is by far my favorite vacation rental. The location is fantastic - biking distance to the beach and grocery store - but the house and yard are simply AMAZING. The house didn't feel like a vacation rental; it truly felt like a home. Like a friend had gone away and we stayed at their place. Cozy furniture and a well-supplied kitchen. The yard had cornhole and horseshoes and a hammock and PLENTY of space for kids to run! We truly truly enjoyed our time here and hope to return in the future.

And we offer an additional 5% discount to returning guests. Thanks, Pat

Beautiful home & close to many beaches. Just what I needed!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This home has everything for a great family vacation and most importantly it’s close to lots of beaches. We tried a different one every day. And the hot outdoor shower along with the big back yard and outdoor games made for hours of relaxing fun!

Terrific Month in Florida

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time taking a month's vacation. Couldn't have picked a better home to do it at. This home was immaculate, furnished well and decorated in a very "homey" atmosphere. The back yard is amazing and the lights that go on in the evening are a very special touch. We especially enjoyed sitting in the lanaii for all of our meals and morning coffee. The location was so very convenient to beaches, Sanibel, Ft. Myers Beach and Ft. Myers. We took advantage of it's location and made almost daily "trips" to various locations. Although it is so close to all of those attractions it is on a very quiet street that barely had any traffic on it. Groceries, Outlets, Restaurants are all within walking distance which we took advantage of. We truly felt like we were "coming home" at the end of our day's journeys.

Terrific property!

  • 5 of 5

The house is clean and homey - like staying with relatives (without the relatives!!!) The care that the owners put into the house was evident by the little touches that made it feel like a home, rather than a vacation rental. We especially enjoyed playing horseshoes in the huge back yard and reading on the shaded patio and screened in porch. The location was great. We enjoyed having easy access to the island beaches during quieter times (early morning) without being held captive to island traffic for the rest of the day (which was our experience last Christmas). It was a wonderful and relaxing family vacation. We would certainly recommend this property.
