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!

Nice Winter's Stay

  • 4 of 5

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.

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!

  • 5 of 5

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.
