Lovely 5 star condo on beach with great views, great amenities and great location / Gateway Villas 797

We had a great time in Fort Myers at this condo. The condo was super clean, completely updated, fully stocked and extremely comfortable. The condo was absolutely beautiful and had everything we needed … both indoors and outdoors! We rented over Spring Break and I made a full Easter dinner on Sunday… with Ham, sweet potatoes, corn casserole, green bean casserole… etc… we had everything we needed in the kitchen to prepare the meal, and then some. The view on the lanai was breathtaking, and the sound of the ocean at night was a great sleep aid… we enjoyed brewing coffee and sitting on the lanai watching the beach and ocean in the mornings.. and equally enjoyed an adult beverage (or two) on the lanai in the evenings. 🙂 The condo came equipped with 4 Tommy Bahama beach chairs, a cooler and plenty of towels which made all the difference on the beach! We went on ‘critter walks’ in the evening after the tide was out and saw live clams, starfish, sand dollars, conk shells… our 10 year old and his cousins LOVED it! The sand was so white and so fine/soft! Great for the feet… and bring sun glasses! The condo is located just a 10 minute walk to Times Square… and we enjoyed walking the beach to the pier for ice cream and shopping. The condo is on the West side of Times Square (with a private gate to enter the parking lot), so it was nice to be on the quieter side, while still close to all the action. Lots of great restaurants near by! Lastly, we took day trips to Sanibel/Captiva and Kayak Excursions. On the Kayak tour we went thru Mangroves, saw a bald eagle, crabs, lots of wildlife, and the highlight was a visit with 2 Manatees (literally came right up to our Kayaks and hung out for 20 minutes… we could have touched them with our hands – but didn’t). It was a great vacation and this condo made all the difference. Would highly recommend for a family or two adult couples. We would love to come back!!
