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 Florida South Central Gulf Coast

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

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

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed my little peice of paradise again. It's so nice to be on the North end of the island, where all the action is at time square, within easy walking. But far enough away from all the noise and traffic, you don't even know it there, and you feel save and sound at Casa! Thanks Donna hope you have a wonderful Spring time, and I'll look for your next request to stay at FMB warm sandy white beach! Kate

Great location that takes pets

  • 5 of 5

Casa Playa is the perfect location directly on the beach and within walking distance to Time square. We came with our two dogs and was glad to see others had their pets too. They also had waste bags for pets as well. The beach was private and had soft white sand. They provided comfortable lounge chairs for our use. The pool area was clean with lounge chairs and tables and the pool being heated was a plus. Our room was perfect for the two of us and our dogs. There was plenty of storage and places to keep our suitcases. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was fairly large with great water pressure. Our room was clean, the air conditioner worked well and we had a ceiling fan too. You can relax & eat on the balcony which is screened in. A few steps away on the beach is the best place to watch the sunset and chairs are provided! The wifi worked well and we used all the kitchen appliances except the stove as there was a gas grill for our use. Kate was very easy to work with & answered all our questions in a timely manner. Everyone at this resort we encountered was so helpful and pleasent. There were many repeat guest at Casa Playa and all of them made us feel welcome. We plan on being one of those repeat guests at Casa Playa. Thanks Kate for making our stay so easy and enjoyable we look forward to working with you again for our next stay in Fort Myers Beach!

Owner's Response: Thanks Robin, I'm so pleased that you enjoyed my little piece of heaven. It is a great place with pets, and they allow 2 up to 50 ibs! But only 1st and 2nd floor, so it's also nice for folks without pets. It is so nice to be on the north end with all the action so close, but far enough away that it's nice and peaceful, and very safe part of the island. Look forward to your next request to stay. Kate

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.
