About Linda DeVarona
Our family has always enjoyed the beach. Our love of S.Florida and its diverse population is why we keep this location as our permanent home. Living on the east coast, allows us the 'best of both worlds', with the Gulf just two hours away.
Linda DeVarona purchased this House in 1999
Why Linda DeVarona chose Mid Island
When our children were young, we enjoyed going to a beach that typically was not too deep for our toddlers. This allowed us some flexibility in relaxing on the sand, with out the constant threat of deep waters for the kids. Typically, the warm Gulf waters will settle right about knee length, which is great wading water for kids. Teens can enjoy skim boarding on the beautiful waters. Jet Skis, paddle boards, parasailing, boating, fishing and tubing are some of the fabulous water sports are all at in your reach at Ft. Myers Beach.
What makes this House unique
We are afforded the luxury of being beach side (no crossing busy Estero Boulevard) yet, right off the direct sands of the gulf allowing for less expensive pricing. Direct Gulf front typically runs 10-15% more than the 'one back' homes. A true plus!!
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
This property has a great location, just steps from the beach. The bedroom arrangements worked perfect for our two families, plenty of room. Great rental price.
The layout of the home was perfect for our family! Proximity to the beach great. The biggest disappointment was the blender, it needs to be replaced. Otherwise, we had a great stay at the Blue Dolphin. We would definitely return!
few steps from the beach with easy access.
scheduled our trip last minute and very pleased with the house, location, and process
We had a great time and the house was perfect for us.
Lots of room in this rental. The furniture was very nice as was all the hard flooring. The door on the stairs, the baby gate on the deck, and high chair were much appreciated. The upstairs baths had very nice vanities. We love the flooring up there too! The decks were awesome! We loved the beach views and loved the beach so much. No busy streets to cross was great for us and our kids. The shells were amazing. There was always a wonderful breeze on that beach! The sand was soft and powdery. Loved it. Great and plentiful parking too.
Some starter supplies like soap, trash bags, a dishwasher puck, and daily cleaning supplies would have been helpful. Also more towels are needed. I think some small touch ups to walls, trim and ceiling as well as downstairs bathroom remodels would make this a 5 star rating. Nevertheless we had a great time.
Everything you need for your beach vacation.
Plenty of room for large groups. Everything you need for the beach was provided, and only a few steps away from the beach. This was perfect for a family vacation.
Thank you Lisa! And thank you for taking wonderful care of our home. A+ guests!
