If a relaxing, rejuvenating vacation is what you’re after, you’ll love staying at Carlos Pointe 312. Our 2-bedroom condo is in the Carlos Pointe Beach Club, a complex on the velvety white sands of Fort Myers Beach, a barrier island on the Gulf of Mexico. The complex is on the quieter southern end of the 8-mile island, within walking distance of Lovers Key State Park. All the restaurants, shops, galleries, and street performers of the northern end are easily accessible by foot, bike, car, or the trolley that stops right outside Carlos Pointe. Please Note: 1-week minimum stay, Saturday arrival and Saturday departure in season.
The restful ambiance is apparent as soon as you step foot into Carlos Pointe 312. The airy living-dining space is decorated in soothing shades of white, taupe, and blue. The open floor plan lets the whole family spend time together even as everyone does his or her own thing: The kids can play a game on the large dining table while in the living room the grown-ups read or take advantage of the free wireless web access. Or everyone can gather together in the living room to watch a favorite movie on the TV with DVD player; there’s plenty of seating, and it’s just as comfortable as it looks.
The living room opens onto a screened-in balcony that looks out onto the gulf. It’s furnished with a table and chairs, making it a fabulous spot to enjoy a meal. The crisp sea air makes everything taste so much better, and you could well see dolphins swimming alongside boats in the serene gulf waters--talk about mealtime entertainment!
The fully equipped kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals to savor on the balcony--or at the roomy dining table indoors, for the matter. Appliances, pots, pans, cutlery, tableware: It’s all here. The fridge/freezer is large enough to hold at least a week’s worth of food, so you can buy your groceries on the first day of your stay and not have to spend any more precious vacation time in the supermarket.
Speaking of time-savers, Carlos Pointe 312 also has its own washer and dryer. This could be the first time you return home from vacation with a suitcase full of clean clothes!
A good night’s sleep is key to a restful vacation, of course, and the bedrooms at Carlos Pointe 312 are certain to promote sweet dreams. Both bedrooms are decorated in the same serene palette as the rest of the condo, with windows to let in the soothing breezes and the sunshine.
The master bedroom has a sumptuous king-size bed, a TV, an en-suite bathroom, and perhaps best of all, sliding doors that open onto the balcony. The 2nd bedroom has 2 twin beds, and the 2nd bathroom is directly across the hall. Having one full bath for each bedroom makes mornings so much less hectic. Should you have additional overnight guests, the living room sofa opens into a queen-size bed.
All towels and bedding are provided--no need to load up your luggage with your own. You’ll be welcomed by freshly made beds, so if you want to take a nap as soon as your arrive, you can.
After your nap, there’s plenty to see and do. Carlos Pointe has its own heated pool, as well as a deck lined with chaises, so you can swim and bask in the sun to your heart’s content. There’s also a barbecue area, which will come in handy if you go fishing on the beach or at Big Carlos Pass--just steps from the complex, it’s a favorite spot for anglers.
The beach itself is wide and unspoiled; you can walk the entire length of the island on the beach. The gulf waters are relatively shallow and quiet, without heavy currents. Dolphins, manatees, pelicans, sea turtles, and more wildlife are frequently spotted, both on the beach and in Lovers Key State Park, where you can canoe, kayak, bike, or hike among the mangroves.
