Why Richard Rowe & Denise Chambre chose Ft Myers Beach

Gateway Villas is a well-sought after condo at the quiet north end of the Beach, so directly on the beach overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Easy access on and off the Fort Myers Beach. Less than 0.5 miles to the Pier, entertainment, restaurants and shops. The Condominium has attentive management that keeps the building and grounds to a high standard. Private car park, so no fighting for car park spaces. This is vacation rental at its best. No stress; Just lie back and enjoy the sun, sand , sea and beautiful sunsets. Ultimately this is where we will retire, so that we can relax in this little spot of paradise - but not just yet!!!!

What makes this Condo unique

You can not get any closer to the beach and the sea. Just down the elevator and step out on to the beach. This is Florida vacation at its best - warm sun, warm water, soft sand, easy access to restaurants and other facilities. Just lie back and relax. We want the condo to meet all your needs from towels and bedding, to washer & dryer, microwave and fully equipped kitchen; plus wifi for social, business and to play.

                                                                  Joanne B.

                                                                  We enjoyed this lovely condo and it’s quiet location right on the beach. No complaints...one suggestion...a light over the BBQING area. Great neighbors, sunsets and dolphins what could be better. We will be back!

                                                                  Wonderful quiet condo with everything you will need

                                                                  Dawn K.

                                                                  We stayed for 1 week in Gateway Villa #494 in Sept. It was clean, beautifully furnished and the view was spectacular! We saw dolphins every morning from our lanai. The pool was clean and quiet. The beach was steps away. This condo overlooks the pool and the beach. It has toys for children, beach chairs, and floats for use at the pool or beach. The washer and dryer are an added bonus. This condo is a short walk from Times Square and the pier. On Friday and Saturday evenings they have a band that plays at Times Square. It was a wonderful week, we are hoping to bring our grandchildren next summer. They will love it!

                                                                  Could not stay because of hurricane irma

                                                                  Condo was nice and sufficient for our needs, loved the view!

                                                                  Favorite beach vacation

                                                                  Corazon H.

                                                                  We had a very relaxing, enjoyable week on the beach. Location is excellent! You can't get much closer to the sand unless you're sleeping in a tent. The beach is not crowded. It was an easy walk to Times Square for shopping and eating. Richard was extremely prompt in answering any questions. Everything you need for the beach is available: beach chairs, toys, umbrella, boogie boards. All I really needed to bring was my swimsuit and portable speaker. Having a washer and dryer was handy. I was a little worried since it was in a closet very close to one of the beds, but these were so quiet that they did not interfere with any sleeping schedule. Some of the towels were threadbare and stained, but they still served their purpose. Furniture was a little worn. Overall, we had an excellent vacation. I would love to return to this location in the future!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Thanks for the feedback. We keep adding new items such as towels; and just took delivery of a new sofa that was 6 weeks late in its delivery - so too late for your visit - sorry!

                                                                  Great Location

                                                                  FARA S.

                                                                  This is our first time staying in this unit. We have stayed at Gateway many times and this is by far the best location on the beach. The unit was great for a family and had lots of sand toys and amenities. Thanks for sharing it with us.
