The best luxury rental we have ever stayed in in Fort Myers Beach

Left on Apr 21, 2017 for a stay in Mar 2017

We have stayed in many beautiful luxury homes in Fort Myers beach but Casa Mia has been the best and clearly is the one we will keep coming back to. It is a home, not a typical "rental" property. The location could not be better. Steps from the beach. The owner has made sure that chairs, umbrellas, coolers beach towels etc are easy to grab and go to pop down to the beach on a moment''s notice, making it easy to have a spontaneous relaxing experience. One block from Publix grocery store. The views from the two verandas are spectacular and relaxing. The house has everything you need to cook and relax at home, but is also perfectly located to allow a sunset walk on the beach to a gourmet restaurant on the beach, followed by a short Uber ride back. The house itself is beautifully decorated and comfortable. The three bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms afford maximum privacy. The main floor laundry room was so convenient. We have returned to this lovely home 4 times and have plans to return there the next time we are in Fort Myers Beach.

About David Heligman

I am the owner of the house

David Heligman purchased this house in 2007

Why David Heligman chose Mid Island

This house has been my personal residence for 5 years. This is not a stripped down rental house. It has been beautifully decorated in the Tommy Bahama style and is very comfortable. Although I will not be living there it will still have the warmth and comfort of a high end luxury house on the Gulf of Mexico. Sunsets are best either from the beach or on the balconies. The beach porch is great for after sunsets happy hour with your favorite glass of wine around the gas fire pit.The views are great. It has new large flat screen HD, 3D TV's, wireless internet and all the creatures features of a well loved home.

This is my private home. It is only 5 years old. It has all the amenities you could think of. I think I thought of most of them.It is very comfortable and can be your home away from home..The beach is gorgeous and somewhat private away from the spring break area. A place to relax and revitalize. The public grocery store is one block away. There is a Marina behind the Publix with boat rentals available and probably the best restaurant on the beach, The Bayfront Bistro, with excellent food and beautiful views of the back bay.

Beautiful home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Casa Mia. The location is perfect, close enough to the activity on the beach, but just far enough away. It is also conveniently located right by the grocery store. The house has everything you need from beach chairs and towels to all the necessities in the kitchen. We would definitely stay at Casa Mia again.

Great spot but lacking simple things to be 5 stars

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the house, especially the views and the beautiful, dog friendly (and very clean) beach. Some things were off which is why I didn’t give it 5 stars. First, information provided at booking about access to the house is incorrect. I was told to look for a lock box at the water spigot. Not there - had to call the owner to find the correct location. House description says there is a pull out couch on the landing. There is, but it is one of those horrible thin mattresses and was broken and unusable even if you wanted to sleep on it. We found an aero bed and figured problem was solved, but the bed had a hole in it and deflated during the night. It wasn’t until the next day take we discovered one of the sofas in the living room pulled out and had a pretty nice foam mattress. Not mentioned in any info on the house.

Other issues, no ice/filtered water from fridge, no decent wine opener (electric one didn’t work), no towels or soap in the half bath, no indication where to find linens for extra bedshould you be lucky enough to find it, no broom or dustpan in the house, no bikes in garage (as advertised), full and over flowing trash cans at the end of the driveway. Being asked to do laundry before you leave is annoying when you are paying a substantial cleaning fee. Plus, how am I supposed to do towels the night before as suggested, when we will all be showering in the morning before we leave?

Finally, roadwork was in full swing outside the house. We left on Monday, so only had to hear the noise that morning but it ruined the porch time and drowned out the sound of the ocean. If I had paid for a week, I would not have been happy.

Owner's Response: Hi Beth I was sorry to hear that our house did not meet your expectations. The house has just undergone a major renovation including all new tile throughout the house, updated railings on the balconies, rebuild of master bedroom bathroom shower and jacuzzi tub, new windows and doors, repainting of the inside and outside of the house, new furnishings including new queen size sleeper sofa in the family room with luxury foam mattress, new bedding and towel, new sod and shrubs, many other upgrade amenities to mention a few. After receiving your review I inspected the house. There was a broom in the upstairs closet and two brooms in the garage, the electric cork screw worked fine just needed to be plugged in and charged and there was a manual corkscrew in the drawer, the refrigerator is a Bosch brand and requires pushing the button on the door to get ice or water and worked fine. There is usually an extra bag of ice in the freezer. The full size sleeper sofa did have broken springs holding the under mesh and this has been repaired. Thanks for letting me know it was broken. The air mattress has been returned to Costco and replaced. We only ask our guest to assist with the laundry so that the house cleaners can get the house cleaned prior to 4 o’clock so our guests could have An early check in which everybody appreciates. It certainly is not mandatory. Finally the garbage was taken down to the street so the garbage company could pick up the garbage on Pickup day. It is better at the end of the driveway then leaving it in the garage. As for the Roadwork, the city of Fort Myers Beach is undergoing a major beautification and renovation of the beach and includes new roads, sidewalks and landscaping. The process is nearly complete in front of our house and will add to the beauty of the beach. The road in front of our house has already been repaved. Finally I do not see where you saw bikes on our website. We do not provide bikes. Anyways we have a wonderful newly renovated gorgeous house and we have had only five star glowing reviews until this review.

Fantastic Home on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Went with my family for a long weekend at Fort Myers Beach. The house has been recently renovated and everything you need is onsite. There is direct access and views to the beach. We made a great dinner on the grill and the kitchen was well stocked. People can play on the beach while others in the group can watch tv on the patio and relax in the hot tub. Definetly would recommend this property to stay and look forward to staying again in the future.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

House is beautiful and right on the beach. Amazing sunsets, dolphin watching, and morning seashell collecting. All the necessities are here. On the main road but far enough out so the beach is not too busy. Close to stores and trolley. You will not be disappointed.

Owner's Response: Hi Karen Thanks for staying with us. Sorry about the toilet paper. There’s usually two or three rows in every bathroom. Also there are two coffeemakers in the kitchen cabinet one is a Keurig coffee maker and the other is a regular coffee maker. I owe you a cup of coffee.
