There’s no place like home, except the beach. Come relax in this third floor condo in Casa Marina! Every window provides a different view of Fort Myers Beach! Enjoy a view of Estero Bay from the kitchen window; there is a view of the canals from the large tiled lanai. Watch boats come and go from the canal and you may even spot a manatee or a dolphin swimming by. The building is located next to the large pool that has plenty of lounge chairs for relaxing as well as a morning water aerobics class!

This spacious, new updated third floor condo has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen and has central air conditioning. The spacious master suite has a queen size bed, a TV and a private bathroom. The guest bedroom has two twin beds and a separate bathroom. Both bedrooms offer large walk in closets, new linens and ceiling fans for additional cooling comfort. The living room and master bedroom open to a large screened in lanai, where you can enjoy the breeze, smell the salt water and take in the beautiful views. The kitchen has everything you can want or need for preparing your meals. Guests can sit at the breakfast bar and chat while you prepare meals. Enjoy your meals sitting at the dining room table or move to the lanai and enjoy the view! There is a brand new, full size washer and dryer for your convenience.

Amenities include free cable and Internet, access to the heated in ground pool, and a private deeded beach entrance. The beach access is a short 10 minute walk and beach chairs, umbrellas and a beach cart are provided in the condo. Stroll the seven miles of sugar sand and keep an eye out for dolphins and some of the best shelling on the gulf! The sunsets at the beach are amazing (don’t forget your camera)!

Casa Marina is located at the quiet end of Fort Myers Beach. Santini Plaza is a short walking distance away. Here you will find a variety of shops and restaurants. The Fish House Restaurant is a favorite! At the Fish Tail Marina you can rent boats, buy fishing bait, go on local excursions such as fishing charters, dolphin watching and sunset tours. Times Square is four miles north where you will find additional shopping, restaurants and nightlife. At the public beach you can rent water sports equipment and find local entertainment at one of the beach-side hotels, restaurants and shops. If you choose to not rent a car, the Fort Myers Beach Trolley services the Island and has stops all along the beach. The Fort Myers Beach Trolley runs from Bonita Springs to South Fort Myers near Summerlin Road. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!

About Kathy

I have been vacationing in Fort Myers Beach for many years! I purchased my condo in the same building as my sister and we have enjoyed spending time there with our families! As a resident of ND, any time of the year is perfect in Fort Myers Beach.

Kathy purchased this condo in 2013

Why Kathy chose Fort Myers Beach

Casa Marina offers a quiet atmosphere for relaxation, walks to the beach or relaxing on the lanai. Casa Marina is within walking distance of several wonderful restaurants and great shopping. The unit has high ceilings and large open rooms.

What makes this condo unique

The views are breathtaking. Greats views of the canal from the lanais and a fantastic view of the back bay from the kitchen window or your back door. If you are an early riser, grab a cup of coffee and watch the sun come up over Estero Bay from your kitchen window.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The property was heavenly is so many ways and the owner was accomodating and helpful with a book of area resources as well as personal recommendations for a variety of activities. The condo was very clean and the rest of the decor amazingly well furnished with delightful Floridian touches. The view from the front patio was spectacular. I sat watching the boats come in, birds dance on the water, sky's change color as the evening approached. The morning sun in this spot was equally was a challenge to leave my this wonderful vista. The beach access was easy and the sand like white sugar.....I found great shells and watched dolphins glide throughout my walks on the beach. It is a perfect summer getaway, with the pool for an afternoon refreshing dip and then the square for incredible food with no waiting. I would love another chance for a summer/fall getaway at this property.

Wonderful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

My two sisters and I just returned from a week at Kathy's condo. It was in a perfect location with a short walk to the beach and many restaurants nearby (we only used our car to and from the airport and for a day of shopping). The condo is very clean and has everything you could need for your vacation. We especially appreciated the great beach towels, chairs, umbrellas and cart for hanging at the beach. The lanai was a perfect place for coffee in the morning and for a glass of wine at the end of a day. We would rent this condo again in a heartbeat. Kathy is very responsive to any questions and very accommodating!
