About the property

3-bedroom/3 bath elevated 'Key West' style home with beautiful Gulf views.

This mid island beauty is tastefully decorated to give you that true Southwest Florida beach feel. Located 'one back', this home is situated between private homes and beach cottages to give you just the right amount of space away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Fort Myers Beach. Hop in your car, or jump onto the island trolley to explore this quaint 7.5 mile island.

The home is situated on the beach side, with plenty of white sand just steps away. No busy streets to cross, kids and family can play, swim, fish or just go shelling steps from our home.

View great sunsets from either the second floor deck or the third floor deck. The outdoor decks have plenty of loungers and chairs for tanning or simply enjoying an outdoor lunch for the entire family.

About Linda DeVarona

From the Saint Louis area, I am happy to offer to you my home! I enjoy sharing my location with those looking for a truly exceptional Southwest Florida location.

Linda DeVarona purchased this house in 2011

Why Linda DeVarona chose Fort Myers Beach

This highly desirable mid island location is perfect to enjoy the tranquil sounds and sites of the Gulf, but close enough to 'Times Square' and the North end of the island to enjoy the lively atmosphere.

What makes this house unique

Situated one back allows guests to enjoy the close proximity of the sand and warm Gulf waters, but not the higher prices of direct beach front. Literally steps from the beach via a deeded walk way.

Location, Location!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Island Cardinal with two other couples for a week. We all had our own privacy having the three bedrooms and 3 baths. The kitchen was fully equipped with all the essentials. The house was decorated nicely and very clean. Being mid-beach was a plus, not crowed at all, especially being spring break. When we took a break from the beach we enjoyed spending time on the covered deck, shopping and sight seeing. The trolley stop was right next door, which we did use. Island Cardinal was everything we needed and hoped it would be!

Perfect Beach Home Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 loved our week at the Island Cardinal! Linda's home is very well laid out and includes almost any amenity you would want. We made many meals in the kitchen and on the grill, and enjoyed them on the covered porch overlooking the beach. The two balconies were wonderful, providing beautiful views of the beach and sunset every night. All 3 bedrooms had comfortable beds and it's own full bath, so there was ample privacy and space for everyone.

The house is ideally located steps away from the beach, which made catching some sun, fun in the water, then a quick break for lunch or a nap extremely easy. The location of the home on the island was perfect for our family, being on the quieter side of the island made the beach a delight since it was not overly crowded. We were able to walk to several farmers markets, restaurants, and even the grocery store.

Linda was wonderful answering any questions we had quickly. We look forward to returning again next year!

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed staying at The Island Cardinal in Ft. Myers Beach a few times. With 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, the house is the perfect size for our family of 4 plus a few friends. Everything is as described by other reviewers and the owner!!

We enjoy just walking out to the beach and setting up our umbrellas and chairs. The kids spend the entire time in the water - except when it's time to eat! I love that they can take a break from the sun by just walking up to the house. I enjoy going for a run on the beach in the mornings. This is the perfect beach location - away from the crowded areas, but enough action that there's plenty to do. We were able to walk to the nearest hotel on the beach to rent a paddle board and just bring it back to our spot for the kids to enjoy.

The house is only about a mile from the Publix - which is great when you need or forget something! You can even walk there if you want.

The amenities were perfect - 3 bedrooms with king beds and 3 full bathrooms. Both the decks were great gathering spaces. The upper deck is great place to watch the sunset.

We will definitely be back for another visit!!

Car: recommended

Located inland Fort Myers, the Edison/Ford Winter homes. Also, great outlet shopping nearby I-75 or near scenic Captiva/Sanibel Islands. This mid island location affords guests a leisurely vacation nestled in between other condos, homes and hotels. Just north, is the island's "Time Square" area with a pier, shops and small restaurants. Spring affords guests an escape from the cold into this warm, carefree environment.
