Overview

About the property

Condo, Studio + Convertible bed,1 full Bath, (Sleeps 2, +1 or 2 small children)

Casa Playa is location, location, location! Casa is at the north end on Estero Blvd's quiet end on the gulf/beach side. Making it very close to the main beach/TIME SQ and Bowditch point park and easy access on/off the island. The sandy white beach is only a 100 feet from 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 60lbs allowed. Some breeds not allowed, indicate details please.

I totally renovated the unit Dec 2009, with new queen memory foam bed, small futon bed, refrigerator/ice maker, stove top, microwave, new 32' flat screen TV ,new dlb futon couch and furniture, radio w/ cd player and more. 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) and declawed kittys. This unit is on the BAY SIDE OF THE BLDG on the 2nd floor with a peak-a-boo view of the bay and TOTAL VIEW of SUNRISES from the two cushioned chairs 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 peir at time square or make a right towards Bowditch park and have a peaceful walk and sight the OSPREYS and their nest scattered high above the palms to be found all the way to the BAY, where there is a public dock to enjoy. If your feet are tired, there is around the clock 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 $1.75!

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 2 LARGER DOGS AND SOMEDAY WILL WANT TO BRING THEM ALONG TOO, THEY WILL LOVE SWIMMING AND WALKING THE MANY MILES OF BEACH. CASA IS 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

Why Kate chose Fort Myers Beach

FAMILY..LOCATION THE WHITE BEACHES, WARM GULF WATERS, THE WILDLIFE AND THE BEAUTIFUL SUNSETS! YOU CAN UP TO TWO PETS! VERY RARE ON THE BEACH IN A CONDO. THERE ARE DOOGY BAGS PROVIDED, AN AREA FOR THEM TO DO THE BUSINESS, NO REAL RUNNING GRASSY AREA, BUT IN THE SANDY/GRASSY AREA IS GREAT, THERE ARE SAND SPURS, OF COURSE, BUT KEEPING THEM ON THE LEASH THEY ARE FINE. THEY CAN RUN ON THE BEAUTIFUL WHITE SANDY BEACH, WITH A LEASH OF COURSE, GO IN THE GULF FOR A SWIM AND LOUNGE IN THE SUN BY YOUR CHAIR ALL DAY IF YOU WANT, YOU WILL WANT TO BRING THE DOGGY SUN UMBRELLA.

Fantastic location and sunsets over Sanibel island!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you kate for making our stay so easy and AFFORDABLE, HALF the cost of on site rental company, for same size and bay view units! Close to time square where all the action, stores, great outside dining on the Gulf or Bay, and night life too! Very quiet at condo, never know it was so close, didn't hear nothing but the breeze in the palm trees. I was a bit worried about a rental to pets, but never know it! It was very clean and totally stocked for a small condo, with a nice screened liana to sit and watch the sunrise. Just a few steps to the white sandy beach with great lounges that sit high, so easy to get in/out of. I will be renting again real soon! Thanks again, vince

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.

Owner's Response: Your welcome, it is a great location and nice to walk to pier for dinner and shopping, or walk to the north end of island and have peace and quite at bowditch park and enjoy the dolphins, turtles and birds. Look forward to your next request, I'll be sure to give you a super deal, especially since you were held up on the road and missed a few days of my little place on the sand. Thank you Kate

Very Enjoyable!

  • 4 of 5

Casa Playa is the perfect oceanside location about .4 mile north of times square. U get the best of both worlds. Beautiful private, quiet beach with awesome sunsets but if u want to shop, mingle and enjoy the nightlife in the busy times square u r only a short walk away. Kates studio is small but very cozy and efficient. I really enjoyed staying there. The noise from the elevator was a little disturbing at times but was not really a problem .Would love to come back! Thanks Kate!

Owner's Response: Jack, I'm glad you and your pup had a nice visit, at my very pet freindly Casa Playa, and that the elevator must not been too bad, if you are willing to come back! You being there a whole month, I can see it could be a little but of a problem, bothers some, and others like me I don't notice it much at all. Glad you enjoyed. Thanks Kate
