Casa Marina condo description

WELCOME TO PARADISE IN THE PENTHOUSE

Relax and enjoy the sun in this beautiful, 2BR/2BA, built in 2001. Your island home is a 1300 square foot penthouse corner unit located in Casa Marina. We are walking distance to 7 miles of white sand beaches and steps to the nearby Fish Tale Marina. An 18 hole executive golf course is across the road. The large screened lanai gives you beautiful views of boats in the bay, while multiple windows in all directions provide views of the golf course and the Gulf of Mexico beyond. Why vacation in the “standard rental” condo when you can have a freshly decorated home with new furniture, beds, linens and furnishings?


KITCHEN HIGHLIGHTS

The appliances in the fully-equipped kitchen include refrigerator with ice maker, range with microwave, dishwasher, and disposal. This kitchen is well stocked with glassware, dishes, cookware, and utensils. Your kitchen also has a pantry, and features a coffee maker, toaster, and blender. Enjoy views of the bay from the kitchen pass through, and views of the golf course out the kitchen window.


BEDROOM HIGHLIGHTS

The Master Suite is decorated in Tommy Bahama style, and offers a new king bed with dual bedside mini chests and lamps, a walk-in closet, a 32” flat screen HDTV and a DVD player. A recliner with lamp, and an ensuite bathroom with a glass enclosed, walk-in shower complete your master suite. Enjoy the views of Estero Bay from your bed or step out on the lanai. The 8 foot sliding doors open from the bedroom, providing light and air to the room and access to a table and 2 chairs. The second bedroom is a large tastefully decorated room with two twin beds, a bedside table with lamp, a dresser with mirror, a walk-in closet, and separate full bath with glass enclosed tub and shower combination.


LIVING ROOM HIGHLIGHTS

The Tommy Bahama style continues into the spacious, living room furnished with a sofa, loveseat and recliner chair. Another set of 8 foot, triple sliding doors open to the lanai and access an additional dining set. Your lanai overlooks Estero Bay and the canals below where you might see manatees and dolphins that come in the waterways. Wake early to watch the sunrise over Estero Bay. Curl up with a book from the book case or play a game from the Bombay chest at the game table. Watch your favorite show on the 42” flat screen TV, or your favorite movie on the Blue Ray player in the living room. A new audio system completes the living room entertainment center.


DINING ROOM HIGHLIGHTS

Entertain friends and family in the light, bright dining room, which includes a large table with 6 chairs as well as a futon sofa for additional seating. If you need more space for overnight guests, the living room boasts a sleeper sofa, and the futon in the dining room, folds down into a full size bed. The dining room also has pocket doors which can close the room off for privacy.

Corner Unit features extra windows for bright and airy tropical feel.

200 square foot screened lanai with two seating areas for relaxing and dining.

An assigned covered parking space (under the building) comes with your home.

ADDITIONAL AMENITIES

Remember, you are on vacation so you need only to bring your summer clothes. In our Fun closet, you will find beach towels, binoculars, cooler, sand chairs, umbrella with 100% UV protection, and a cart to take them all to the beach with ease! Don’t forget the fun noodles to float in the warm waters of pool or the Gulf. All are provided for your peak beach experience. You have private beach access across Estero from Bay Beach Lane. You can also rent beach cabanas at the Holiday Inn just up the street by the day or by the week.

Casa Marina boasts a large, 27 x 57 foot, in-ground heated pool with a morning water aerobics program for those who want to get involved, stay fit, and meet others. The pool area has plenty of tables and lounge chairs, and poolside restrooms for your convenience. You will also have access to the tennis courts and a fishing pier nearby. The canals on property offer great fishing right from the dock.

Take a short walk to the numerous restaurants and shops located in Santini Plaza, which boasts a variety of clothing and gift shops as well as a post office, liquor store, hardware store, book store, and even an ice cream shop. If you have a boat you wish to use during your stay, boat slips are available at an additional cost. If not, fishing charters & boat rentals are available at the Fish Tale Marina, behind Santini Plaza. Want to save on the cost of a rental car? Simply take a limo or shuttle service from the airport and use the trolley that runs up and down Estero Boulevard from Bonita Springs to Downtown Fort Myers Beach for only 50 cents.


LOCATION

Casa Marina is located at the south end of Ft. Myers Beach, in the exclusive Bay Beach community. Within a short distance, you’ll find a full service Publix grocery, a CVS drug store, banks, several top quality restaurants, even a cinema that will serve your favorite adult beverages while you enjoy the latest first-run releases.

Known as the quiet end of the island, the south end offers the peace and serenity of the tropics, but is just a short drive (or trolley ride) to the action in Times Square. The choice is yours! Your vacation location also provides quick access to Lovers Key State Park, Bonita Springs, and Naples. A short drive to the north end provides quick access to Sanibel and Captiva Islands. Casa Marina is the perfect location, and our penthouse, corner, unit is the perfect spot for anything from a week’s stay to your winter snowbird nest!

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: Nancy and John in Indy.

                  Why the Owner Chose Casa Marina:
                  We want to be snowbirds when we grow up! We searched for two years and found that Ft. Myers Beach was the location and Casa Marina was the community for us. The corner penthouse location was important to us for privacy, views of bay and golf course, and the breezes. We love it here!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  Being on the top floor gives us not only privacy and quiet, but the bird watching is amazing. The birds fly by at eye level, pelicans dive in the bay for fish throughout the day. In the afternoon the herons, egrets, ibis and other birds congregate on the golf course. One day we even saw a bald eagle on the golf course from our living room window. There are a number of good bird watching areas here, we just didn't know out condo would be one of them!
