About Elisabeth

I am delighted to offer my home to families to enjoy quality time and create lasting memories. It has been a pleasure to host and meet so many wonderful people from all over the world. I live nearby and am always available.

Elisabeth purchased this house in 2006

Why Elisabeth chose Mid Island

We chose this property because it is very unusual to find a beachfront lot of this size in a residential neighborhood which can accommodate a pool, guest cottage and private beach area. We loved the Old Florida style of the house and we knew that it would be a perfect beach get-a -way for many years to come.

What makes this house unique

With soaring ceilings, fabulous light, an open floor plan and breathtaking views from the house and deck, this house is sure to please. It is beautifully decorated and meticulously maintained, has a private beach, heated swimming pool and separate guest cottage. A great compound with the comforts of home and everything you need to to enjoy a week on the beach.

Best on the beach !

  • 5 of 5

This well kept property had all 4 of our "must haves," those being beachfront, private pool, separate guest cottage, and a bathtub ! We have been here two times, and are planning to come a third time. Elisabeth will attend to your every need. Stay here and you will never regret your decision.

Great view and very roomy inside.

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised with the amount of space inside. The pool house is fantastic. The view from the window in the morning of the dolphins is breathtaking. The private pool is a welcome relief from the sun in the afternoon. The house is well equipped with anything you could possibly need for the beach, in the kitchen and more! The only slight negative is some noise from Estero blvd when you’re by the pool. Otherwise We loved it! We would definitely come back!

Owner's Response: Thank you Jodean it was a pleasure to have you and you family stay at Beachfront Bliss. I am so happy you had a great vacation and that the house was better than you expected. I am so glad you were able to watch the dolphins swim and play. It is such a thrill for sure! The past few guests have been delighted to be within 5 feet of them in the water. I do hope you will return. If so please remind me you were a previous guest.Thank you again.

Beachfront Bliss

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many beautiful houses in Fort Myers Beach since 2002 and this was one of our favorites. It is a beautiful well kept house with lots of wonderful perks. We loved having the pool as well as the private beach. The back deck has a beautiful view of the gulf which was a short distance away. The house was equipped with everything you would need. Elisabeth, the owner, was wonderful to work with. When we travel back to Fort Myers. we will definitely look to stay here again!

PERFECT for families with kids:)

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at Beachfront Bliss and it was absolutely perfect! We had 6 adults and 4 kids (ages 1,2,4,7). This house was so easy, comfortable and relaxing for our family. The HEATED pool is a must have for us and makes it so comfortable to be swimming for long periods of time. We honestly will not rent another house without a heated pool and it was the perfect temperature! We deck was stunning! Dolphins every morning! The private beach was so relaxing with the small kiddos, as we could relax on the deck with a cocktail and watch them playing without having any safety concerns. There were many sand toys. Our boys especially loved all the big trucks there to play with. We had a bonfire and relaxed on the hammocks:) Such a wonderful vacation! One negative is that the pool is very close to the main road. Was not a safety concern at all since the pool is gated in, but you do hear traffic during the day. Thanks Elizabeth!
