If your vacation must-haves include a view of the surf, a heated pool, and the ability to walk to the beach in less than 5 minutes, Strandview Tower 701 is for you! This 2-bedroom condo is in a complex directly overlooking Fort Myers Beach and the Gulf of Mexico that has its own private pool. And the condo is gorgeous too! As soon as you take the elevator to the 7th floor and walk through the front door, you’ll be delighted with your choice. The open-plan living/dining area is spacious and serene, with furnishings as comfortable as they are elegant. Whether you’re stretched out on the sofa to watch a movie on the large flat-screen TV with cable or nestled in one of the armchairs with a good book, you’ll feel right at home.
The real showstopper is through the sliding glass doors: the balcony, with a view of the beach and the gulf that will take your breath away. Enjoy your morning coffee or juice out here while watching the sunrise, or sip a cocktail with friends as the sun sinks below the horizon and the sky fills with fiery reds and oranges. A ceiling fan ensures that the balcony is cool even at the height of the day. Because the balcony is furnished with a table and chairs, you can enjoy your meals out there among the salt-kissed breeze as dolphins frolic in the surf. You also have the option of eating indoors at the dining table, which seats 4. The dining area is close to the kitchen and connected with a pass-through window that makes serving and clearing easy. The table is also a great place to play cards or simply to linger after dinner sharing memories of the day’s adventures on the beach, at the golf course, or in the park. The kitchen is equipped with all the appliances, cookware, and tableware you need, whether you’re preparing a holiday dinner for family and friends or microwaving popcorn for movie night. For maximum convenience, there’s a dishwasher (who wants to scrub plates when the beach is beckoning?) and, just beyond the kitchen, a washer, and dryer. For once you can return from vacation with a suitcase full of clean clothes! The en-suite master bedroom includes a king-size bed, a flat-screen TV, and a broad window the looks out onto the gulf. There’s nothing like waking up to glorious sunshine and the gentle rhythm of the surf. The private bathroom includes a spacious vanity with a large mirror and plenty of storage for all your toiletries. The 2nd bedroom, decorated in a charming seaside theme, includes 2 twin beds and a TV of its own. There’s the 2nd bathroom as well, complete with a shower/tub combo. You’ll find clean towels ready and waiting when you arrive, and the beds will be freshly made up, so if you want to kick-start your vacation with a well-deserved nap or a refreshing shower, you can. Among its impeccably maintained grounds, Strandview Tower has a heated swimming pool surrounded by plenty of chaises for relaxing in the sun as well as chairs and tables with umbrellas for cooling off in the shade.
There’s also a shuffleboard court—go ahead and challenge other guests to a game. And just beyond is the beach, which is renowned for its velvety white sand. (There’s a reason the American Sand Sculpting Championship is held here every year!) You can swim, canoe, paddleboard, kayak, surf-fish, gather shells and sea glass, or simply stretch out on a blanket and listen to the sandpipers. Because Strandview Tower is located in the middle of the island, you can easily visit Lovers Key State Park, Times Square, Bowditch Point Park, and more. Or just sit back on your balcony with a frosty drink and a book—it’s your vacation, spend it however you please! First, though, you need to book your stay. So reserve your time at Strandview Tower 701 today, before someone else beats you to it!+ More
