Do nothing.... stay at 'Little Palm' that is our motto!

'Little Palm' as we like to call it is your home away from home. It is a true beach front cottage with all of today's amenities (paddle boards, bicycles, beach toys)! 30 steps and you are ready to Do Nothing. As you can see from the photos it has been completely renovated and professionally decorated.

'Little Palm' is located in the heart of Ft. Myers Beach FL right on Estero Blvd 3 miles from Town Square & it is a true beach front property. Mornings at Little Palm may be enjoyed by watching the sunrise as you walk down the beach or just relaxing on the outside patio reading your local paper while having your morning coffee!

Due to its beachfront amenities, you may enjoy the rest of the day taking in the Hot Florida Sun right in front of your property or probably taking advantage of the parasailing, jet skiing, kayaking from Mid-Island Sports next door!

We have enjoyed Little Palm and have had many of wonderful memories here and we'd like to share these memories with you! Come Stay at 'Little Palm' and Do Nothing!

About Ileana and Chaz

We are thrilled to be on Ft. Myers Beach! It was a dream of ours to own a piece of this paradise ever since having first rented on the surf much like yourself, years ago. My wife and I are local Floridians, living in South Florida with our daughter.

Ileana and Chaz purchased this house in 2016

Why Ileana and Chaz chose Mid Island

"Little Palm" is a dream come true for us. It is a model, homesteader cottage, the likes of which were originally built on Estero Island. Soon it will qualify for the State Registry of Historic Places.

What makes this house unique

Long walks on the beach, shelling, sunbathing, reading, catching up on movies, relaxing, doing nothing....

Being mid-island is perfect because you are close enough to the busy parts of Ft. Myers Beach (Times Square, the Pier, etc.) while affording you access to quiet, pristine beach time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your house is stunning. We have rented many homes

and never had one so fully stocked and decorated so beachy beautiful. I'll never want to leave! Thank you for sharing your beautiful piece of paradise.

Very enjoyable vacation. Home was fully equipped. It rained most of our vacation, but being right on the beach made it great. We sat on the porch and watched the rain while watching the waves crash to shore. We went out between raindrops- no driving required! Kids played with sand toys on private beach in backyard while we got some sun on the lounge chairs. We cooked all our meals in the kitchen ( Publix right up the road). From the living room watching tv you look right out to beach. Lovely place. Exceeds Pink Shell where we usually stay! Very private and enjoyable. Kids already asking to go back next year!! Thanks again!

Just amazing.

  • 5 of 5

We already can't wait to get back to Little Palm. The ability to run from the back door to the beach has forever spoiled us. There was plenty of space for me, my husband and three kids. It was clean, and felt need to worry about neighbors or if the kids were bothering anyone. We had a small issue with a power failure and the owners went above and beyond (and quickly) to fix everything. Another thing I feel we wouldn't have gotten had we stayed somewhere else. My only recommendation, bring bug spray!!! My husband counted 47 bites just on the back of my thighs from the "no seeums". They were crucial!

They really do have everything there. I brought a waffle maker, didn't need to, and there was already plenty of bowls and Tupperware too. There was a blender and food processor. No need to bring your own coffee or filters because they have a keurig, unless you bring your own coffee maker. They also had Old Bay in the spice cabinet which is nice since we're from Maryland :) Plenty of games for older kids and adults so if you want younger kids board games you have to bring them. In their storage shed there's a paddle board, boogie boards, and plenty of beach toys to play with. Just steps outside of the backyard you can rent jet skis too, which we did twice. There are two grills outside. They're literally thought of everything.

Sweet Cozy Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place even though we were mourning the fact that my mother wasn't with us for our girls trip due to sudden illness. She would have so loved this house on the beach.

I'm hopeful that us girls can get together here again as my mother would have wanted. I can't imagine any place more perfect!

Fabulous relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our "little palm" holiday home. It was quaint and homely, and the location was perfect, in the middle of Fort Myers Beach. Plenty of everything required for a beach stay, buckets, spades and deck chairs all provided, along with a hammock to take in the view. Be careful when you approach as it's easy to miss the entrance!
