About Dorothy Hoey
We are two retired teachers who bought in Fort Myers Beach because we like all the activity in Fort Myers Area. There is always something to do and the sunshine is spectacular! All ages have fun in Fort Myers! There are young people, middle age people and older people! There are 84 restaurants that you can relax and listen to music with amazing views!
Dorothy Hoey purchased this House in 2011
Why Dorothy Hoey chose Mid Island
We enjoy walking the beach and boating in and around the Gulf of Mexico. We can walk or take the trolley to Times Square for entertaiment and eat great food. We also think it is really fun to ride our bikes on the beach. Our street has beach access, so it is easy to get to the beach!
What makes this House unique
We enjoy going to the beach for several hours and then coming back and taking a dip in the pool! ***We own 21580/21582 Indian Bayou, so if you are a large family, you can rent both sides! Grandma and grandpa can have one side and the rest of the family can be in the other side! If you have friends that come down, you can rent both sides and also have times for privacy!

Thankyou so much for sharing this great home. Close walk to the beach! Great balcony overlooking pool and canal! Spent most of our time enjoying the view. Owners were more than accommodating and quick to respond to any questions. Very enjoyable vacation!
Property had everything we needed for an enjoyable vacation in Ft Myers Beach
The house was every bit as nice as the photos we reviewed on-line. The property was well maintained and was filled with all the amenities one would have at home. Great location for what we wanted. Quiet and peaceful neighborhood until New Years Eve night. Lots of local fireworks that we enjoyed watching out on the beach.
Perfect family getaway
My family of 6 stayed here for Xmas break 2015-2016. It was the perfect house for a busy family. We loved the location and access to the beach . Shopping and restaurants minutes away. The house was spotless and had everything we needed for BBQing family dinners . I would highly recommend this property. The owners were delightful to communicate with and the trip was wonderful.
Comfortable, spacious, relaxing home
My husband and I wanted to bring my parents to the beach for a change of pace and relaxation. We have been staying on Ft Myers Beach for over 30 years, and love the home, location, and neighborhood.
The house is comfortable, well stocked and we took advantage of the beautiful kitchen. The highlights were the spa and pool as well as the canal. If you like fishing, and swimming, this is great. The beach is so close and we brought a bike for rides to the beach and grocery, just down the road.
Our favorite beach house to date and we highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great vacation home. We are looking forward to returning!
Amazing place to stay!!!
We stayed here for 8 nights at the beginning of June. We have rented places on VRBO for over 20 years and this place is the best we've ever stayed. Very clean and well stocked. It was so nice not to have to go buy any of the basics; laundry detergent, dish soap, salt, pepper, sugar, even beach towels. You name it they had it. Beds were very comfortable. The pool and hot tub were awesome. They have beach umbrellas and a buggy or wagon to take stuff to the beach. I honestly can't say enough good stuff. Thank you for sharing your home. When we vacation down there again we will rent here if it's available!!!
Amazing Family Vacation!
We just got back from a week long stay at this cozy home. We traveled with 3 kids (6, 5 and 2) and this home was perfect! It was a quick 5 minute walk to the beach and the Owners provide a beach caddy that made taking all the chairs, toys, towels, cooler, etc a piece of cake! They also have a wagon which made pulling the youngest one easy! The beach toys and chairs are in great shape too! The kids also loved the pool... it was their favorite part of our entire trip. As a parent I loved the safety features, an alarm that sounds if the pool door is opened and a knob on the door that is high enough that even our 6 year old couldn't reach it. I felt 100% safe with having a pool and 3 little kids. The hot tub is BIG... so all three kids played in it a lot. The pool was super clean and had stairs going down on both sides which was also nice with little ones that can't swim. They could still play in the water with their lifejackets, but also touch. The outdoor seating was nice and we took advantage of the grill, cooking out a few nights. There is a grocery store located close by, so picking up food was easy. The kitchen was stocked with dishes and everything else we needed during our stay, and having a dish washer made clean-up a piece of cake! The bedrooms were cozy and very clean. They were also big and didn't feel cramped at all. The entire house is decorated in tropical décor which made our stay feel even more like paradise. Dorothy was so nice and helpful with local restaurants or places to grab a drink on the beach at sunset. You couldn't ask for nicer Owners to rent from.
We would definitely stay here again! The convenience of having all the towels, bedding, pool toys, beach toys, dishes, washer and dryer, etc. right there made traveling with three little ones SO easy. We'd go to the beach in the morning, swim in the afternoon, and then walk down again for the sunset. This was definitely a perfect house for a family beach vacation!
We are walking distance to the beach and if you want to go to Times Square, the trolley stop is one block away for your convenience.
