Mid Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Waterfall pool, spa, and sunsets...escape to this little treasure surrounded by frangipani, palm trees, and jasmine. My home is nestled in a quiet neighborhood, yet it is just 200 feet to the Gulf of Mexico,and stunning sunsets...

My Key West-style home is remodeled throughout 'island style' in soft greens and corals; stainless appliances; granite counters. The master bedroom has a queen-size bed with extra luxurious mattress top and has a private bathroom. The guest room has two twin beds; and can convert to a king bed if needed, with a full bathroom for guests. The living room has 2 sofas for comfortable seating/ one is a queen sleeper.

Enjoy views of the lagoon pool from the kitchen while preparing a meal or a drink. Dine in the screened lanai overlooking the pool or enjoy the sights and sounds of nature dining out on the brick patio. Pictures do not do my home justice, it is a little gem and my guests keep coming back year after year.

Of course the highlight of my home is the pool, heated to 88 degrees year round and surrounded by beautiful foliage..Coconut trees, frangipani, and jasmine surround the pool for peaceful surroundings, perfect for reading a book ,casual entertaining...and a perfect setting for your relaxation. The sound of the spa's waterfalls is heard throughout your day. Enjoy the hot tub in early evening with a cool drink.

Hi speed internet,wireless, dvd and 3 tv's are in my home along with 4 beach bikes,coolers, large beach umbrella, beach towels and all the necessities for the beach. My home is on a 'beach access' street so no need to walk the highway to get to the beach.

Our beach is seven miles long, and has a variety of beachside restaurants, live music, friendly locals and plenty of shops. Ft Myers beach has a variety of activites while you're here, whether its a boat trip, Sunset cruises, eco walks along the beach, kayaking, jet skiing, parasailing, Spas, all offered on our beach. You can walk to many of these establishments or enjoy a trolley ride to 'Times Square'. The 'pier' is a favorite place to gather at sunset while enjoying a cocktail...My home is only 1 1/2 mile to the pier. Grocery stores are within a mile of my home.

Besides local amenities listed below; Naples famous 3rd Street south and fine dining on Fifth avenue are just a short drive south, World class Golf courses surround Fort Myers and Naples, Disney World

Orlando is just three hours away, Busch Gardens is 2 hours away, and Sanibel/Captiva Islands , The shelling capital of the world is only 20 minutes away. ...and should you feel the need for some alligator sightings...well then Everglades City is just an hour 1/2 south.... Miami, one of the most unique cities in Florida offering a diversity of restaurants, art museums, cultural events, shopping and more....is just 1 1/2 hours away on East coast of Florida.

Key West is a lovely day trip by boat with departures daily from Fort Myers Beach, or enjoy one of the many world class golf courses in our area. Fishing Charters

from Fort Myers Beach are

also available.

Whether you are looking for a romantic escape or a family gathering, my home is a treasure waiting to be found...and you just might be lucky enough to be here when the banana tree sprouts its annual spread of tasty exotic bananas for your morning breakfast. If not, well then 2 grocery stores are 1 mile away!

About Ann Marie Fox

I am a business professional in the area, and work for a local TV station. I love Florida and spend as much time at my beach rental as possible! I love the beach and have lived in the area 25 years. Some of the best times I have had are walking and biking along the 7 mile Gulf of Mexico. You just never know what you will see! I have many many repeat customers and I hope you will be one of them. I can help you with travel ideas once you are here, so feel free to call me.

Ann Marie Fox purchased this house in 1998

Why Ann Marie Fox chose Fort Myers Beach

Quaint, quiet, and relaxing vacation home!

What makes this house unique

There are unique benefits to renting a private home, rather than a condo. You are on vacation so take advantage of it! Unique benefits to my home are privacy from the busy streets; peaceful setting; and the chance to have your own pool and spa without sharing with other condo guests. My home will feel like your own. I have made it comfortable for all .When you are in my home, you have a complete view of outdoors, and the pool area which makes you feel like you are living in nature; with all of the palm trees, frangipani and the sound of the waterfall spa....it is wonderful. You will not want to leave!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent Thanksgiving here and as before, have thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Busch Gardens was 2 hours away and outlet shopping within 5 miles! We enjoyed our stay again. The beach was fun..thank you so much Ms Ann Marie..We look forward to coming back..

Perfect Place for Quiet Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My college roommates and I spent a week at this beautiful home that is a stones throw to a beautiful beach that was never crowded. The home is updated, very clean, and has a wonderful relaxing atmosphere. We spent hours floating in the private pool after walking or sitting for a few hours on the beach. There is a great upscale fresh fish restaurant and an ocean front bar with casual food within walking distance of the home. We did take the Trolley to the pier once, but once was enough for the pier. I do wish there were a few more restaurants within walking distance, but the private pool and the location of the home to the beach outweighed that drawback. I would definitely stay here again. The owner Ann Marie was very helpful and is very hands on as far as managing the property.

Great Ft Myers Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at this cute beach home. The owner is charming, responsive, and helpful. The house is as pictured, very clean. Everything you need, like you are staying at a friend's house. We cooked at the house several times (because we loved the fresh gulf shrimp), and found the kitchen well equipped. Brand new grill, nice stove, dishwasher. It is a short walk to a beautiful beach; fat tire bikes are provided. Riding bikes on the beach was one of our favorite things. The hot tub is very unique. We enjoyed it a number of times, though it was too cold for us to use the pool. We also enjoyed the screen room; you could hear the waterfall, and be outside even if it was raining.

We did have cool, rainy weather, but found lots to do anyway. Had a wonderful dinner at the Fresh Catch Bistro, which is close enough to walk to. The Mound House just down the street is worth a visit. We spent a morning exploring the park at Lover's Key. We ventured out to the Naples Zoo and the Botanical Gardens, which were both well worth the trip, as long as you can deal with the traffic. We spent a rainy afternoon downtown at the House of Brewz, which has probably 50 craft beers on tap.

We definitely hope to stay here again. It was comfortable, close to the beach, but far enough from the hub-bub of the downtown area. There are a variety of things to do in the area, but we were pretty happy at the beach.

My wife and I stayed for 5 nights at the beginning get of December. While the weather did not cooperate, the amenities at the house made it a great trip. Bring yourself, groceries, and your favorite beverage - everything else you need is there! Would definitely stay again.

The most incredible beach getaway, perfect for nature lovers

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this amazing location for a family vacation. We each wanted something different... a beach getaway, privacy and tropical beauty, places to go to enjoy both history and nature, and an amazing pool were on each of our wish lists for our perfect vacation. This house delivered on all of our wish list items! Pictures don't do it justice... that pool is nothing short of incredible... Better than any rental we have ever stayed at hands down. During our stay we took it all in... sunset walks on the beach, nature walks at Lovers Key, historical and garden tours at the nearby Mound House and Edison estates, shelling on Sanibel, and swimming mor than the fishes! Pick this property ... you won't regret it. And Ann Marie is an incredibly attentive and gracious hostess.

Perfect location, excellent hospitality

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Ann Marie's house for two weeks in February. It was our first time on Fort Myers Beach, and I cannot imagine ever returning and staying anyplace else. The house was exactly like the pictures represented, and I think my favorite part was the free bicycles as we used them almost every day. The neighborhood was extremely quiet, and yet we were close enough for a 10 minute bike ride to activities and the grocery store, or just a walk across the street to the beach.

Having the pool in the backyard was extra relaxing, and really no trouble. I loved cooking when I felt like it, and she really had all the kitchen accessories I would need. I would recommend this house for sure!

Thank you Ann Marie!

Best Vacation Ever.

  • 5 of 5

This was a 30th anniversary trip for Us. Everything was perfect! The house was in a great central location with close walking distance to beach. Pool and spa was Perfect and We spent of a lot of time just relaxing. Sanibel, Captiva, and Lover's Key are beautiful with shelling, beaches, scenic trail's, and getting around is easy with bike and scooter rental's in about every area , but just driving if you want is a nice scenic tour as well .Bike's are provided along with beach chair's, umbrella, pool float's and lot's of towel's. Time's Square and Pier, and numerous other eaterie's are a short drive with lot's of shopping and food if you don't want to cook.2 Publix and other store's if you want to grocery shop. Plenty of fishing tour's, parasailing and lot's more. AnnMarie is a delight and very helpful. Hoping to book again for next year.
