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 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, tubing and other 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 in this tough economy!

Great accommodations for large group, everything you need and just steps away from the beach!
Everything was amazing! Great accommodations for large family or group. Perfect vacation and the best part is the beach is only steps away from your back door! Beautiful home on a beautiful, not very crowded end of the beach! Highly recommend!!
Thank you so much for your review! I'm glad you all had a wonderful time and please come back to see us again!! You were all the ideal guests!
We loved the property and would return to stay at your home .. so convenient to the beach!
Loved the house and the proximity to the beach/shops/etc. Not too close to the college students at Lana Kai. Had trouble finding a cutting board but found a little one on the last couple days there. Also, some of the towels could use updating .. they seemed rather worn and weathered. Otherwise, laundry facilities, a new grill, an additional living space out back on ground level and two decks made the space great!
Our stay at the Blue Dolphin was wonderful! Everything you needed was at the house.
It was perfect for our family of 10. We couldn’t have asked for a better vacation!

Very nice property at a perfect location!
Large two story house just off a wonderful beach.
This house easily accommodated our family reunion of 10. Is this located on the middle of Estero Island. The beach is just a few feet away. The house has a nice view of the Gulf. There are a number of things to do on the island including Matzanas Preserve and Mound House. There are many opportunities to rent paddle boards or kayaks or go parasailing. The house does have its own kayak which several of us used. If you like shells, there's plenty of those and we saw dolphins out fishing several mornings. The island has a cheap bus system which we took down to Lovers Key which is just a few miles to the South where we saw Manatee and lots of other flora and fauna. There are number of grocery stores both close by and just off the island. I would recommend this house.
