Casa Playa is location, location, location, right on the beach! Casa is on the very desirable VERY NORTH end on Estero Blvd's, the quiet end on the gulf/beach side. Beautiful Royal palms Line Estero blvd with side walks and bike lane! Making it very close walk to the main beach/TIME SQ just south and north gorgeous Bowditch point park. The location is easy access on/off the island. The sandy white beach is only a 100 feet from your front door down the elevator to the warm gulf waters, or enjoy the very private heated swimming pool. PLEASE INDICATE THAT YOU HAVE PET(S) UP FRONT FOR THE BEST PRICING. Up to 2 dogs, under 50lbs allowed. Some breeds not allowed, indicate details please.

Queen memory foam with topper bed, small futon bed, refrigerator/ice maker, 2 burner stove top only, microwave, fully equipped kitchette. Brand new Air/heater unit. 32' flat screen TV , dlb futon couch , best for small person or two kids. It is a 'Pet friendly condo' but only on the 1st and 2nd floors of this bldg/ up to '2 dogs 50 pounds each' (a rare find) This unit is on the BAY SIDE OF THE BLDG on the 2nd floor with a peak-a-boo view of the bay overlooking a small parking lot, only 35 units in bldg. TOTAL BEAUTIFUL SUNRISES from the two cushioned chairs/bistro table on a private lanai. The beach is right there,so you'll never miss a sunset. Sooo close to the fun and busy main beach and fishing peir at time square where all the action is, but far enough away, it's super quite. Walk north a short walk towards Bowditch park and fishing peir and have a peaceful walk and sight the OSPREYS and the LOGGER HEAD TURTLES and BIRD nest scattered high above the palms to be found all the way to the BAY, where there is a public dock to enjoy., or day dock a boat free. If your feet are tired, there is a convenient trolly service available on Estero Blvd to take you all the way to Bonita Beach, or to the air port, just connect with the bus at Summerlin Sq for only $5 total to air port.

My family started coming to the beach in the 50's and we have been coming back every year since. We would stay at the pink shell(a lg resort/close, but not too close to Casa) until the last of the old cottages were all gone in 2000, so we stayed at a few of the available cottages on the north end, until one of my brothers bought a cottage on the bay. I decided on Casa due to the location and the small 35 unit building made it simpler and more private for a condo association. I plan to come as often as I can but have decided to rent and share a bit of this slice of heaven with other folks! I just know you will love it as much as I do.

Keywords: INTIMATE Condominium bldg only 35 units/intimate and quite right on THE BEACH/ close to time sq where there are several shops, eateries, liven entertainment to dance the nite away and the other direction is the quite,beautiful and bird watching point at bowditch state park/private and quite pool and much more

About Kate

MY FAMILY HAS BEEN COMING TO FT MYERS SINCE THE 50S AND LOVED IT EVER SINCE. I LIVE IN BEAUTIFUL CHAUTAUQUA NY, WHERE EDISON SUMMERED AND OF COURSE SPENT HIS WINTERS IN FT MYERS. ALTHOUGH NY IS WONDERFUL, IT IS GREAT TO ESCAPE TO THE BEACH IN THE COLD WINTERS MONTHS. I HAVE 1 DOG NOW AND LOVE TO BRING THEM ALONG TO CASA, IT'S A RARITY THAT ALLOWS LARGERS ANIMALS AND 2 OF THEM! THE SUNSETS OVERLOOKING SANIBEL ARE THE BEST IN THE WORLD, SO COME SEE FOR YOURSELVES AND ENJOY.

Kate purchased this condo in 2009

Perfect location and dog friendly!

  • 5 of 5

Just as it states- Beautiful sunsets. My dog loved walking on the beach and so did I. Condo is located on the quiet end of Estero Blvd. Easy walk to Bowditch park, shops and restaurants. Short drive to Lover's Key park which has two dog friendly trails. Definitely plan to return ☺

Owner's Response: Oh I'm so very pleased and glad that you enjoyed my little place in the perfect spot and gorgeous location right on FMB. It's all about the soft white sandy beach and those wonderful and beautiful sunsets right out front of my condo, just a few steps from my front door and your in the sand with welcoming chairs and comfy lounges! It's a rare find to have such an extremely dog friendly condo right on the beach, or anywhere at FMB. Look forward to your next request to stay with me Bethany.

Owner's Response: Thank you Vince, It was great to have you back again! It is right in the perfect spot, close enough to all the fun at Time Square but yet, far enough away for peace and quiet on the beach and so near beautiful Bowditch Park many biking and walking trails. Please let me know when your ready to get away again! Kate

Beach Efficiency - Fort Myers Beach

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in Kate's efficiency unit in Fort Myers Beach - Casa Playa. My wife and I were there for the Roy Hobbs baseball World Series. We spent two full weeks in late October, early November 2017.

The unit had everything you would need. The unit was clean, comfortable and had a nice outdoor deck/balcony where my wife and I would have our morning coffee/breakfast. A/C was nice and cold. The Casa Playa is a nice quite condo complex. The pool was wonderful and we used the beach chairs daily to watch the sunsets.

The only issue we had was limited storage for clothing as the dresser in the bathroom was partially filled with towels and extra sheets for the unit.

We highly recommend the unit.

Truly a Place in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Kate for letting us have the pleasure of staying at your place in Paradise. I loved that we could take our dogs along with us. Your place was very clean & perfect for us and our dogs. It was so nice walking right out the door & onto the beach. It was convenient to everything, & just a short walk to Time Square. Watching the sunset over Sanibel Island was Awesome. My favorite place to stay on Ft Myers Beach! We will definitely stay here again.
