                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About the owner: We vacationed in Fort Myers Beach in 1983 and purchased a one bedroom apartment here at Gateway Villas because it was our dream to become 'beach bums'. When we retired from Chicago in 1996 we moved here permanently and have loved every minute. My husband died suddenly in September of 2013 but I am continuing to rent the apartment with the hope that the people who come will enjoy their stay and get a little feel of paradise on our beach.

                  Why the Owner Chose Gateway Villas:
                  We had the opportunity to purchase Apt. 695, which happens to be across the hall from our unit (696). We've enjoyed the guests and take pride in keeping the apartment well stocked and clean (the way we would like a rental to be!)

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  The balcony overlooks the Gulf and there you can watch the dolphins and the beautiful sunsets. We know this for a fact because we spend many hours on our balcony. The white sandy beach is ideal for walking and the pool is well maintained. Times Square is a few short blocks down the beach where there are many restaurants and shops and the pier. We are located on the north end of the island between the back Bay and the Gulf. Living just across the hall gives our guests the ability to contact us easily at any time.
