Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Mid Island - Cocobay Beach Front Apartment

Gorgeous Gulf Front Apartment, uninterrupted ocean views,on the beach, front row

Amazing Gulf Front Apartment - step outside and you are on the beach!

Enjoy the uninterrupted views of the Gulf and Beach from the comfort of your vacation rental. Apartment beautifully situated amongst the private grounds, shaded with palms, dotted with hammocks and chaises.

Grab your morning cup of coffee and go for a stroll, watching the dolphins play.

Occupying the whole lower level of the house there are direct views of the ocean and beach from nearly all windows of the apartment.

There are two bedrooms (one king size, one double bed) and two bathrooms, open plan kitchen, dining and living. Washer and Dryer and plenty of closet space.

The apartment is situated in the beautiful quiet and residential part - mid island.

All you need is just 2 min walk - the island's Publix across the Road and the Marina with Bar and Restaurant. For plenty more bars, restaurants and shops take a trolley ride, beach stroll or bike ride to the north of the island.

We will be happy to assist you in recommending local restaurants and activities!

About Claudia and Nick Metcalfe

A young family who love the beach!

We are renting the ground floor apartment of the main house (front row) and a Beach Cottage, which set a bit further back. We will be happy to assist you in recommending restaurants and activities for your stay.

Enjoy your vacation in this piece of Paradise!

Claudia and Nick Metcalfe purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Claudia and Nick Metcalfe chose Fort Myers Beach

All year round - beach side paradise

This gem of an apartment is situated in the quiet, beautiful residential part of the island, right on the beach, which makes it an amazing beach hide away.

What makes this apartment unique

The location of the apartment is truly amazing - living on the beach & ocean, set amongst the coconut palms - simply heaven. Nevertheless - The little island's Publix, Bars and Restaurants are just a couple of minutes walk away to cater for all you desire. Enjoy the best of both worlds!

Serene and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

To sum it up quickly, this was the perfect beach house for me and my family. The location of Nick and Claudia's house was spectacular and couldn't have allowed for a better time. We were able to walk right out of the house and our feet were in the sand and two second later we were in the warm gulf waters swimming with the Dolphins. Definitely a memory we won't forget.

The area was quiet and so serene. My wife fell asleep in the hammock for hours as I paddled up the coast in the SUP Board they have to borrow. That is have to say was a work out in itself.

At the end of the day it was great to walk down the beach and watch the sunset by the pier and grab a drink/food at a local restaurant.

Thank you Nick and Claudia for letting us stay at your home, it was definitely a pleasure and in our memories.

Perfect house directly on beach.

  • 5 of 5

House is actually better than pictured. Directly on beach in a quiet, rather secluded, location. Simply step out of any room and have your toes in the sand. Can't get much closer than this. Good communication with owner and made assessable if needed during my stay. I am very happy to find such a fabulous rental that welcomes my little dog too. He had a blast running on the beach and playing in the surf. We watched the dolphins swim by every morning and enjoyed the most beautiful sunset every night. There really isn't much more I could ask for in a vacation rental. I'm already planning my next visit.

Location Location Location. Perfect. Far enough away from the busy area, close enough for supplies.

  • 4 of 5

This is a great location. Plenty of space. House was inviting and comfortable, a home away from home. Owners are beyond lovely. We stayed a week and didn't want to leave. We'll definitely visit again.

Amazing view!!!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this house is perfect! There is a beautiful view of the beach and ocean from nearly every window of the house. The best part was that you literally step outside the back and you are on the beach! We spent our days in lounge chairs (provided) with a cold beverage watching the waves. When we wanted to cool off we just took a few steps and we were in the ocean. When we needed a refill or a snack we were just steps from the house. You can't beat the location!

The house was clean and the AC was cold. The kitchen was tiny and could use more counter space, but nearly everything we needed to cook meals was available. I also liked having a washer and dryer available to use.

We will definitely book here again!

Very comfortable beach retreat

  • 5 of 5

We spent the Fourth of July on this property and we loved it! The house is right on the beach, you open the sliding door and you step on sand. No need to carry umbrellas and beach chairs. We enjoyed the kayak and the paddleboards, there are beach bikes too. Beach is nice, lots of sand dollars! My daughter loved the hammock and my dog had a great time too. Publix is across the street. It was perfect for us!

There is something for everybody - whether you just want to relax on the beach, cool drink in hand or plan a more action packed day ranging from fishing, deep sea fishing, jet ski, kayak, paddle boarding, biking, walking, beach combing, bird watching - to name a few.
