Overview

North Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

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.

Very clean

  • 4 of 5

Nice condo, just enough room for me and my husband. Close to times square and only a few steps to pool and the beach. Decor is lovely beach design. Only downside was pool was dirty but NO reflection on the condo and Kate was always available, if needed. Neighbors were all so friendly and their pets too.

Awesome place, location perfect and great price!

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect location close to the action but far enough away to be able to enjoy quiet day at the beach. The room was neat and clean everything we needed for a girls trip! There was a pool for us to use if don't want to go to beach. Lounge chairs, table and umbrellas available to use. The staff very friendly overall it was a perfect place for our vacation! Look forward to going again.

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for 2 weeks with our dog. The condo is clean and surprisingly spacious for a studio unit. Kate was very quick to respond to any questions we had. Casa Playa is a wonderful location,and we were able to walk to Times Square easily. The beach is pet friendly, and beach chairs are supplied. We had a great time in spite of the crazy weather we had!

Owner's Response: Well, I'm glad you had a wonderful time. I'm happy that I found your very loved doggy sweater and rain coat, left behind at my condo, and that I was happy to return to you with no charge. I'm sorry that you did give me 4 stars instead of 5, mainly because of the weather, that I have no control. But I'm glad you and murphy had a nice dog friendly time, hard to find on a beach in Florida any longer. Kate

Owner's Response: Donna, you are so welcome. I love to share the majic of beautiful fmb with people and pets. It's hard to find a condo on the beach that is so pet friendly, so, I'm glad you could bring your best friend with you. Look forward to your next inquiry. Thanks again. Kate

absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

I spent two weeks with my golden retriever at Kate's place. We had a great time! The very clean, well appointed unit is supplied with everything you need and is in a perfect location; close to restaurants,etc. You don't really have to drive anywhere except to get groceries. I particularly enjoyed the comfortable bed and pillows and the lanai is a great place to spend evenings after sitting on the beach to watch the sunset. Right on the beach, allows dogs, great unit and location, quiet and relaxing. What more can I say! Absolutely wonderful! Can't wait to return next year!

Doggy lovers

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place to stay with pets. It was a huge savings over the casa rental, especially with pets. We have 2 dogs that are 50 lbs and it's next to impossible to find a condo right on the beach, on ft myers beach, we'll any beach to take 2 large dogs! We can take them right onto the beach and out front to sit, watch the sunset, and walk for miles. They are welcome anywhere but the pool area, that's to the side of the building. Very nice little place with a nice sized bathroom and screened in porch area. The location is very convenient and close to the main beach where all the action is, but far enough away and very quite. Estero Blvd is lined with beautiful royal plams and side walks to walk to the town Sq. I will be returning next year and maybe earlier! Thanks kate
