North Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom 1 Bath, (sleeps2)

The sugar sand beach and wonderful pool are simply fantastic! Or just relax on the balcony and watch the sunset. This north end location (500 Estero Bl.) has so much to offer and avoids the crowds and parking issues around Times Square and the big hotels.

You will find your own personal spot to unwind and sip your favorite cool beverage. All of the normal beach activities are available plus a favorite of mine, a short walk to Bowditch Park to visit the dolphins, osprey, and gopher tortises. Almost forgot the ever present Pelicans.

Our condo is clean, comfortable and cool. The building itself is well maintained and parking is gated and secure so you can truly rest easy and enjoy!

About David Main

We are Canadians wintering in SW Florida. We fell in love with the Beach here and are sure others will enjoy it too.

David Main purchased this condo in 2011

Why David Main chose Fort Myers Beach

The weather is fantastic and the beach second to none in our opinion. The north end of Estero Blvd. has been very recently resurfaced and beautifully landscaped and is quieter and less hectic than areas further south.

We enjoy staying right on the newly revitalized beach, no traffic to worry about, or parking hassles. We walk just about everywhere. Great restaurants close by, no need to drive and if we want to go further, the tram is always an inexpensive option.

We would love to see more European guests, the Beach here is second to none and not crowded even in high season.

Gateway Villas is a very well kept building and the staff and residents are courteous and friendly. Say hi to Brad!

What makes this condo unique

Our unit is clean and fresh with a magnificent view. We now have a brand new granite kitchen and fully renovated bathroom for you to enjoy. Its on the 3rd floor so its easy to walk up and down, no need for the elevator although there are two. Appliances are newer and king bed comfortable. Air conditioning is effective or there is a lovely, through breeze with the windows open. The pool is always warm and kept very clean as is the building and beach area.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for letting us stay at your condo. We love Ft. Myers Beach. The weather was almost perfect and we enjoyed the beach and the many restaurants. The sunsets were incredible.

We will be back!

PS. Heard it snowed 10 inches back home. Can't wait to get back...NOT!

Great Stay! Will return!

  • 5 of 5

I have been coming to Ft Myers Beach for the past 40 years. My family has been staying at Gateway for some time now. The location is unbeatable and the beach is simple marvelous. The views from the balcony cannot be beat anywhere on the Island. Our villa was awesome. The kitchen is unbelievable and rooms are spacious. The property is always clean and just an enjoyable place to stay. I would recommend the unit to anyone visiting the Island. Thank you for a wonderful vacation, see you next year.

Outstanding Place to Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful condo for vacation. It is very accommodating and perfect for our needs. The gulf view is outstanding. It is a nice quiet place to relax, yet a 10 minute walk to the shops & dining. This condo has been updated with a touch of class. We were very pleased with everything durning our stay.

Love this condo!

  • 5 of 5

It was my boyfriend and I's first time in Fort Myers Beach and we will definitely be returning and to this condo. The location is perfect in that you're far enough away from the square that the beach is not crowded but you're close enough that you can easily walk to all the excitement. The condo is wonderfully updated and provides pretty much everything you could need for a week of relaxation. We will be returning to this same spot again!

Stay away!

  • 1 of 5

Walked into a filthy, tiny, rundown unit. Wouldn't even stay one night. Pictures on the net can be very deceiving. Do not be fooled, this unit will only be acceptable to people who don't care about comfort, cleanliness. The updated kitchen doesn't make up for a ridiculous bathroom and absolutely filthy furniture and carpeting which you wouldn't want to sit on or walk on. Agent said to us that the owner was about to start renovations: why then did the management company allow this place to be rented as is? If you have to stay here, don't go.

Owner's Response: This individual was looking for a condo at the Ritz for the price of the Holiday Inn. He did not like the area or the building and therefore naturally not our condo. He was given an immediate full refund and yet still wrote this negative review. Checked with the management company and the unit was cleaned properly. His comments are over the top ridiculous and unfair which VRBO allows. We will continue with planned upgrades to our unit so that "most" vacationers can enjoy it as much as we do. Owner.

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo was very nice, clean and felt like home. The kitchen was very nicely updated and had everything we needed to cook breakfast, lunch or dinner in if we wanted to! This condo is about a ten minute walk to times square. This area of the beach is much quieter than being close to the pier. It was very nice to relax without having to fight over a spot to put your beach chair! The condo included beach towels and chairs for our use, which was a very nice touch! The pool is very nice and was very quiet during our entire stay. The owner has really thought of everything you could possibly need during your stay. The management company was easy to work with and were even able to accommodate an extra night's stay for us since the unit wasn't rented the night we were originally going to leave. The only slight negative thing I would say is that some of the local tv channels did not come in on the tv in the bedroom. They came in fuzzy and delayed the first night or two and then not at all the rest of our stay. We left a note on the comment card just so it can be checked in to. It didn't warrant a call/complaint in our minds, just a slight inconvenience if we wanted to watch a specific channel in bed. I would highly recommend this condo!!!

Owner's Response: Very pleased you enjoyed our condo, hope to see you again! One note about the TV... Comcast have attempted to fix this quircky issue, no joy, hence we advertise that we have only one TV.

The northern portion of Fort Myers Beach is rather unique. It is much quieter than most of the Beach with lots of room to stretch out on the beach and relax. No crowds or noise. The beach up here is enormous thanks to recent revitalization. And yet, you are a short walk or trolley ride to pubs and restaurants.... fantastic combination. Bowditch Point Park, just up the street, is a very unique, natural area where you can see wildlife or rent a kayak to paddle around the bay area. So much to do.
