You can just sit and relax, read a book and look for dolphins and manatee that swim in the canal. Walk to the sandy beaches only two blocks from your home. We have beach chairs, umbrellas, beach towels, and beach toys for your enjoyment.

We are located mid island on a quiet residential street and our home is not for the party crowd. We cater to families who want to relax and enjoy their holiday, but you can catch a Trolley ride to anywhere on the island.

Fort Myers Beach is located on Estero Island which is a 7 mile long barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico. It is easily accessible by a south and north bridge (no tolls). The south side of the island is adjacent to a beautiful state park which is a protected island with no residents so it is home to dolphins, manatee, and other aquatic wildlife. It is a protected bird estuary for all the bird watchers. Wonderful for fishing, shelling, hiking, biking, boating. Driving south from Fort Myers Beach is Bonita Springs and Naples, both of which have wonderful shopping including outlet stores. We are located less than an hour north of the Everglades if you feel like spending time with alligators and snakes!
On the north side of the island is Time Square with night life, cute shops, restaurants, and bars. We are located about 3 or 4 miles from the north side which is easy to get to by trolley or biking if you don't want to drive. Spend time in the bussle of Time Square or choose to get away at your own private cottage.
You are walking distance from a eat-in movie theatre (can purchase food and eat while you watch the movie), shops, fruit market, several really good restaurants from seafood to casual sports bars to great pizza,convenience stores, a bank, boat, bike and kayak rentals and two blocks from the beach. There is a large grocery store less than two miles from Widgeon Cottage.
All inclusive island that you never have to leave.

About the owner: Dan and Colleen are a well traveled professional couple who raised their children in western Michigan. Now empty nesters, they have chosen Fort Myers Beach as their home, and live in the caretakers apartment on the Widgeon Cottage property. They are committed to providing their guests with an easy and enjoyable vacation experience. Guests have described them as friendly, laid back, and attentive to needs if any should arise.
Why the Owner Chose Mid Island, Fort Myers Beach, FL, USA:
Dan and Colleen are sailors, and love the water, outdoors, and all the area has to provide. Their property reflects their personalities... comfortable spaces, peaceful, plenty of light, surrounded by water, and close to the action if and when the mood should strike.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This property is well maintained, has open living spaces, sits on a canal with access to the intercoastal waterway and the Gulf of Mexico, has a heated pool and jacuzzi, is family friendly, and is centrally located to many area attractions. If anything, the pictures do not do it justice!
