A spacious balcony overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Bright, impeccably furnished rooms. A heated pool. The beach as your backyard. Restaurants and shops just a stroll away. Gateway Villa 897 offers all this and is the top end of luxury in Fort Myers Beach. 1-week minimum rental requirement.
Located on the top floor of a gated complex, Gateway Villa 897 proves that elegance and convenience can go hand in hand. As soon as you step into the open living-dining area you’ll know you made the right choice of a vacation getaway. The furnishings are as gorgeous as they are comfortable.
There’s plenty of space for everyone to congregate in the living room to watch a favorite movie on the HDTV or to sprawl out while surfing the web via the free WiFi. And when you’re not eating at the dining table, the well-padded seats encourage lingering long after the meal is over.
Sliding glass doors separate the living area from the balcony so that even when you’re indoors you can relish the spectacular view of the gulf. Of course, once you’re out on the balcony, the vista is even more stunning. When you’re relaxing on a lounge chair or enjoying drinks at the dining table, you’ll have a front-row seat from which to watch dolphins and manatees frolic among boats as seabirds swoop across the endless skies.
Whether you prefer preparing elaborate gourmet meals or ordering takeout, you’ll appreciate the convenience of the fully equipped kitchen. It comes with all the appliances, cookware, prep tools, and tableware you need, and the open layout means you can gaze out at the gulf as you cook. There’s a dishwasher too because when you’re mere steps from the beach, the last thing you want to waste time doing is scrubbing plates.
If you think the living area of Gateway Villa 897 is luxe, wait until you see the 2 bedrooms, In February of 2016, all beds had Tempurpedic memory foam mattress toppers added. The master opens onto the balcony so that you can enjoy a late-night drink under the stars before sprawling out onto the king-size bed. Open the drapes before turning in, and in the morning you’ll wake to a view of the gulf--what a way to start the day! The master bedroom has its own bathroom, as beautifully furnished as the rest of the condo.
The 2nd bedroom has a double bed. Your guests will love having such a lovely space to themselves! The 2nd bathroom has both a tub and a shower, and with one bathroom for each bedroom, mornings will be much less hectic. Plenty of fresh towels will be waiting for you, as well as bedding, blankets, and pillows--no need to bring your own.
Of course, you don’t come to Florida to spend all your time indoors, even in a condo as lovely as Gateway Villa 897. Be sure to pack your swimsuit, as the complex has its own oversized heated pool. It also has an outdoor dining area, complete with grills so that you can barbecue your catch of the day (or steaks from the supermarket!).
Just beyond the condo grounds is the beach itself. Not only has it long been considered one of the best in the country, thanks to its pristine sands and quiet waters, but it’s also home to the annual American Sand Sculpting Championship. Here’s your chance to build some sandcastles of your own… when you’re not paddleboarding, parasailing, swimming, or searching for shells, that is.
For less strenuous pursuits, saunter over to the island’s Times Square area, a trove of shops, restaurants, and nightspots. It’s great to be able to head out for dinner and drinks without having to drive!
Gateway Villa 897 is a perfectly furnished condo in a perfect location--which means it is the perfect place to stay for a perfect vacation. What are you waiting for? Book your stay today, before someone else beats you to it!+ More
