Welcome to 'Almost Paradise' in Bella Lago at Bay Beach, a beautiful new Mediterranean-style condominium, overlooking a fountain-sprayed lake with a peek-a-boo view of the Gulf of Mexico. Built in 2006, this second floor luxury condo is located at the up-scale, quiet south end of Fort Myers Beach across the street from our private beach access. Just steps away, you can enjoy the large resort-size heated pool, jacuzzi hot tub, and sandy beach. Other amenities include private fishing pier and tennis.
The spacious two-bedroom plus den unit (1,571 square feet) with nine foot ceilings is decorated in tropical Tommy Bahama style. In the mornings, step through the sliding glass doors onto the furnished lanai to view the sunrise and watch the blue heron, egrets, and osprey fishing in Bella Lago ('beautiful lake'). In the evenings, enjoy sunsets over the Gulf from den. FREE secure Wireless Internet access. Concierge service.
My husband LOVES baseball! In 1998 he found out about the the Roy Hobbs World Series that takes place in Fort Myers and he's been playing in the tournament during October and November ever since!
Donna Flemister purchased this condo in 2011
We've had the opportunity to explore the neighborhoods on Fort Myers Beach and fell in love with the south end of the island. Bella Lago at Bay Beach has everything we wanted in a vacation home and we are thrilled to let others enjoy it too!
This is an upscale neighborhood that lets you relax in the sun, swim, boat, golf, shop and dine without ever getting in your car! Bella Lago at Bay Beach is close to the airport when you need to come and go, yet feels a world apart.
This was our first private rental and we were not disappointed. This two bedroom, 2 bathroom condo is definitely accurately described by the owner.
There is everything you could want for your holiday including beach gear in the basement storage.
The location at the quieter end of Fort Myers Beach is perfect and within easy walking distance of eating places and the beautiful beach. The condo is easily accessed by lift (stairs if you prefer) and felt very secure. Was perfectly presented and immaculate with plenty of soaps and towels including beach towels. Kitchen facilities lacked only a kettle and teapot but that's the British in me, everything else was provided down to sugar, salt and pepper. The huge fridge was a definite bonus in the kitchen providing instant ice.
The spacious walk in wardrobe was great as was the huge shower in the master bedroom.
Spacious lounge with comfortable seating and nicely furnished balcony.
Only negative is the second bedroom is quite dark.
We loved this condo as you can tell.
Donna checked with is during our stay to ensure everything was ok and I thought that was a nice touch.
We left this condo to spend a week in a timeshare apartment in Kissimmee and although it too was well appointed and quite luxurious as well as spacious, it was anonymous without the personal touches do Bella Lago.
Would We return to Bella Lago or recommend to others?
A most definite yes as it could be enjoyed as a quiet retreat for a young couple, beach holiday for young children or a relaxing getaway for those of a certain age!
Oh nearly forgot, the free wifi was a welcome addition as we had need to keep in touch with home.
We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Bella Lago, Fort Myers Beach. The location overlooks the complex lake and fountain. The sandy beach is a short walk and the beach is wide and nicely walkable. We rented a pontoon boat at the marina next door and took it to Lover's Key for an afternoon excursion.
The unit is very spacious, especially the master with double sinks and a huge shower. The in unit laundry also was handy. The owners supply all you could need for an outing at the beach. Chairs, umbrellas, coolers and towels. No need to bring anything else. It was great! Highly recommend.
The location also allows a car free vacation. The trolley and buses regularly take visitors from one end of the island to the other. A small strip mall, easily walkable, has several restaurants and shops too.
My parents, sister and her husband and my wife and I stayed at this unit over the 2012-12 holiday season and really enjoyed our stay. Very bright spacious unit that comfortably slept 3 couples and an infant. We really enjoyed the pool and it is conveniently located with a very short walk to the beach, shopping, a golf course and a marina. Our family have rented about 10 different condos in Florida to escape the Canadian Winter and this unit was by far the best. We hope to come back next year!
We arrived to a well cleaned and beautiful apartment. The amenities were good, and the location superb for our needs: the beach is just a quick stroll away, a golf course the same distance in the opposite direction, as well as a tennis court, which was a few minutes walk away. The nearest Publix is a five minute drive to the North, 7-11 is nearby, but the icing on the cake was the movie theatre - we really enjoyed going there in the evenings! Donna did a fine job, making us feel at home. We couldn't have asked for a better time, and we're already looking forward to our next visit!
Could not ask for more! We have been visiting this island for over 25 yrs and love this place! Extremely clean very well kept. Owners thought of everything, beach chairs, umbrella, cooler, kitchen has everything you could think of, pool & hot tub are gorgeous and right across the street is the best beach in FL! We will definately return. Donna is very accommodating and we felt at home the minute we walked in the door. We would rather keep it our secret!
My wife and I stayed at Donna's condo for the month of January 2012 and this was our first time staying anywhere for this length of time. Well, our experience could not have been better. The unit was well equipped with everything we needed. We wanted for nothing.
But the main thing according to my wife was that the unit was very clean and neat upon our arrival. And having a reserved parking place in the garage was a big plus too and the beach access is right across the street.
All in all we have a great time. Donna was always a phone call or email away and she responded quickly to answer any questions. You won't be sorry staying at this unit. Thank you, Donna.
