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!

Florida is a little piece of heaven in December.
Overall, this place was great. Some minor things that really aren't worth complaining about but you'll hear about a few things. I'm in Florida in December and if you can't be happy here, you won't be happy anywhere. Unit is newly remodeled and considered best unit to stay in (some residents consider it the penthouse, I will just say it's really nice). Unit will have everything you need for your stay unless you want to go to beach. This rental does not provide one thing for the beach. So, we bought an umbrella, beach towels and chairs and left them in the unit but was told by management company they would have to remove it. Not sure what's going on there. The air conditioner is loud and there is also a compressor (I guess) on the roof that runs every time the elevator is in use. It can get a little noisy for the guest room. I sleep just fine with noise but not my wife. There is a screen on the balcony, did not know this originally when we reserved it but that made for unclear views but still enjoyed our time out there. Oh, cant forget the pool, biggest and best pool on the strip and its heated, somewhat. This unit is within a 10 to 20 minute walk to shops, bars, pier, and beach parking. It can get busy and you will have to deal with traffic. But, hey, it's Florida. I gave 4 stars basically because unit had nothing for beach. All the other stuff is minor but nothing for the beach? Anywho, great place, residents were nice but you can tell they are not fond of past vacationers. Little over priced in my opinion but that's Florida in December. Cheers!
We appreciate you taking the time and sharing your feedback regarding your stay with us. We always strive to make the guest vacationing rental experience great and we are glad to hear that you enjoyed your time. Our December is substantially different from up north and we hope that you were able to soak up as much warm weather as you could. Although we do understand the want for accessible beach accessories, they are unfortunately not provided for this unit. If there is ever a question on what is or isn't provided that isn't already in the description or listed features, our team is always readily available to answer. We apologize for the disappointment this may have caused and hope that you were still able to take advantage of the beach. We welcome all comments and suggestions as this is how we can continue to improve the overall vacationing rental experience. Winter is our busiest time in Florida but we would definitely like you to come back and see us soon.
Condo beautiful!! Clean!! Buildings / pool everything was excellent!!
We drove down, 2 1/2 days, only got to stay one whole day. ( Out of two weeks)) We received a call Monday morning we had been robbed. We have a alarm... Door wide open... no call from alarm company. So for one night.... a very expensive vacation.!! But we know we would have had a very nice time.BUT we did think there was suppose to be a King bed??
Everything was perfect!
Easy check in, all the comforts of home, beautifully decorated, more than enough space and close to all the things we wanted to do!
Very nice apartment
Very nice apartment and quiet beach.
The only thing that we have to say is about the air conditioning. It is very noisy, especially at night.
