|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
The condo is right on the beach and the balcony overlooks the white sand and the Gulf of Mexico. Watch dolphins play and view gorgeous sunsets from this lovely sixth floor balcony apartment. Beautiful, newly remodeled, one bedroom apartment with king-size bed and new queen-size sleeper sofa. Have all the comforts of home in a spectacular setting. The bathroom is newly remodeled and kitchen is fully equipped with new modern appliances. Gateway Villas is a gated condominium.
Located in the quiet north end of Estero Island within walking distance of 'Time Square' with shops, restaurants, fishing pier, etc. Golf and Marina are nearby.
We vacationed in Fort Myers Beach in 1983 and purchased a one bedroom apartment here at Gateway Villas because it was our dream to become 'beach bums'. When we retired from Chicago in 1996 we moved here permanently and have loved every minute.
My husband died suddenly in September of 2013 but I am continuing to rent the apartment with the hope that the people who come will enjoy their stay and get a little feel of paradise on our beach.
Margaret Schafer purchased this condo in 2002
We had the opportunity to purchase Apt. 695, which happens to be across the hall from our unit (696). We've enjoyed the guests and take pride in keeping the apartment well stocked and clean (the way we would like a rental to be!)
The balcony overlooks the Gulf and there you can watch the dolphins and the beautiful sunsets. We know this for a fact because we spend many hours on our balcony. The white sandy beach is ideal for walking and the pool is well maintained. Times Square is a few short blocks down the beach where there are many restaurants and shops and the pier. We are located on the north end of the island between the back Bay and the Gulf. Living just across the hall gives our guests the ability to contact us easily at any time.
We so enjoyed our week in your lovely condo - the decor, the view, the amenities, the cleanliness. In all our 40+ years of vacationing on the beach, this is the nicest home away from home we've experienced. Have a wonderful holiday and blessed 2015. We hope to revisit in the future. Thank you for everything.
This condo is everything on the listing and more! Lots of extras including beach chairs and cooler. Property was well-maintained and Margaret very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed walks on the beach every morning watching the dolphins! Beach never crowded and condo in great position for walking to Times Square for eating and shopping.
Would we recommend this condo-yes yes yes and whoever will listen to us we cannot say enough about this property. Loved the beach,food,weather,people,swimming pool,and the relaxation the most. there is a farmer's market that had everything you needed for food so you didnot have to leave if you chose not to.The food was the only thing you needed to stay here as everything was included from books,movies,beach chairs and towels,newspaper to read. A trolley ran by so you did not need a car-wonderful! No problems and every one was so helpful in answering any questions. When our week was done we call it pack and pout because we really wanted to stay!
You would be hard pressed to find a better rental unit in this area. Everything we thought we may need was included. From beach chairs, coolers, popcorn, towels, soap...list goes on.
The view was as advertised-Awesome. The place was very clean and organized. I only wish our house was kept as well.
One of the best features was the location of local eateries, shops, etc. Times Square is a short walk from the condo and that was nice not having to find a place to park. The pier was there and the whole area was active with things to do and see.
I would recommend this rental without hesitation.

We can't wait to come back! :)
Das Appartementhaus liegt im nördlichen Teil von Fort Myers Beach. Dort gibt es keinen Durchgangsverkehr.
Das Appartement selbst ist in einem total gepflegten, sauberen Zustand. Die Küche ist mit allem ausgestattet, was man benötigt. Besonders gut gefallen hat uns, dass auch eine kompeltte Strandausstattung (Schirm, Liegen, Stühle, Kühlbox, Badetücher) vorhanden war, Der Balkon ist komplett mit Mückengittern geschützt. Das war zwar anfangs etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig, Wenn man dann aber auch abends bei Licht draussen sitzen wollte, wusste man warum das Ganze doch sehr praktisch war.
Vermieterin Margaret,hatte uns bereits Wochen vorher den Schlüssel geschickt, so dass wir dann pünktlich anreisen konnten. Sie selbst wohnt direkt gegenüber. Somit konnten auch kleine "Probleme" (Kaffeemaschine funktionierte nicht) prompt gelöst werden. Generell war die ganze Abwicklung sehr einfach. Wir haben ihr lediglich einen Verrechnungsscheck über einen Teilbetrag der Miete als Sicherheit geschickt, den wir -nachdem wir bar vor Ort bezahlt haben- zurückbekommen haben.
In ca. 10 Minuten konnte man zu Fuß (am Strand oder Strasse) den kleinen Ortskern mit vielen Restaurants und einigen kleineren Geschäften erreichen. Allerdings haben wir uns fast die ganze Zeit selbst verpflegt. Ein Publix-Supermarkt am Estero Boulevard (ca. 10 Minuten mit dem Auto entfernt) bietet alles was man braucht.
Wenn wir wieder mal nach Fort Myers kommen wollen, werden wir bestimmt bei Margaret nachfragen, ob ihr "Beach Paradise" frei ist.
Danke für die tolle Woche.
