About Antoinette Newell
This home is owned by an attorney who is an avid golfer, and an artsy chef who loves the beach!
Antoinette Newell purchased this House in 2003
Why Antoinette Newell chose Mid Island
We designed and built this home in 2003 after years of winters coming to this beach! The weather is always beautiful, the beach is clean and pristine!
What makes this House unique
Living mid island is awesome! It is quiet and offers a private beach type setting! If you feel like the hustle bustle of town or public beaches they are just a short bike ride, walk or trolley ride from the door! You are literally a bike ride away from shopping, restaurants, bars and all kinds of entertainment! The island also offers boating, hiking, fishing, kayaking, windsurfing, parasailing or just plain relaxing!

Very Nice & Friend Friendly
We shared this property with our dear old friends on our annual trip to Fort Myers Beach. We have typically stayed in hotels and this was our first adventure with a home property. We loved the ability to socialize together in this very nice, spacious and well maintained home. There was plenty of room indoors and out for all of us. Communication with the owner was exceptional and check-in/out was really simple. We would recommend!
Nice Winter's Stay
This was a perfect getaway for our family. Great location. The pictures on HomeAway do not do it justice. The backyard was much bigger and the living areas and bedrooms were much nicer. A great kitchen. Direct TV was used on rainy days. A lot of attention has been made to make a comfortable stay inside and outside the house. Very nice grill. All the beds were comfortable. We would stay here again.
The house was amazing- the owner was more than accommodating and always answered questions promptly!
This is a great location and a great home away from home. We will definitely stay again when we go back to the beach!
Spacious, relaxing, great location. Extras included!
We loved our stay at Villa Del Mar. Plenty of room and bathrooms. Great outdoor and balcony areas to enjoy the breeze and gulf views. So appreciated the use of beach towels, sand chairs and umbrella. We'd love to return again.
Very nice, quiet neighborhood but a bit of a walk to town
Nice, quiet neighborhood, but a bit of a walk to town. A little odd that there were family pictures all over
Great location. Beach was a disappointment due to the local decision to drain Lake O. Property itself suffers from a fair amount of "Deferred Maintenance". It could be a real five star property with some repair.
