Who says you can’t have it all? When you stay at our 2-bedroom house Gulf Retreat on the northern end of Fort Myers Beach, you merely step away from one of the nation’s most beautiful beaches and from a hub of restaurants, bars, and live entertainment. Swim, surf, and sail all day, then eat, drink, and be merry all night!
The house is Gulf Side on Estero Blvd just steps from the beach or the restaurants and shopping district. You can enjoy our balcony, which is furnished with an umbrella-covered table and chairs. The balcony’s also a fabulous spot to enjoy a meal--and to cook one as well, thanks to the outdoor grill. Throw some of the area’s renowned Gulf shrimp on the Barbie… or whatever catch of the day you reeled in while surf fishing on the beach or from Big Carlos Pass on the quiet southern end of the barrier island.
Although you could easily spend hours relaxing on the balcony, watching gulls and pelicans soar past as you relish the fresh salty sea breeze and the sunshine, you do have to go indoors some time. Fortunately, Gulf Retreat has its own charms.
The living room, for instance, has plush seating you’ll love sinking into, whether it’s to watch HDTV or a DVD, to use the free wifi, or to stretch out for a nap.
Whether you want to cook a full-fledged feast or simply brew a cup of coffee, the kitchen is equipped with everything you need: appliances, cookware, utensils, tableware, the works. There’s even a dishwasher because when the beach is your backyard, the last thing you want to waste time on is washing dishes. Or washing clothes, for that matter, which is why Gulf Retreat has its own washer and dryer.
You might have a tough time deciding which of the 2 bedrooms to claim for yourself. One has a roomy king-size bed perfect for sprawling out on. The other has a queen bed. Both bedrooms have a ceiling fan and a window-unit air-conditioner.
There’s a full bathroom. All the fresh towels and bedding you could possibly want will be ready and waiting for you.
You’ll be just a quick walk to the Times Square area, Fort Myers Beach’s version of downtown, with its outdoor dining, cool shops, street performers, and more. Or you can head to the southern end of the island to explore Lovers Key State Park.
And then there’s the wide, velvety beach itself and the calm, relatively shallow waters of the gulf. There’s a reason Fort Myers Beach has long been considered one of the world’s safest beaches, as well as a reason the American Sand Sculpting Championship is held here every year.
When you stay at Gulf Retreat, you don’t have to choose between surfing and nightclubbing, beachcombing and boutique hopping. You can enjoy them all--and much more besides. So go ahead: Book your stay, and get ready for your best vacation yet!
