Paradise awaits in this hidden gem west of U.S. 41 and only six minutes to several beautiful beaches. This updated, spacious condo is located in a welcoming community that has a park-like setting with miles of paved walking/biking trails. Appropriately called the Retreat, this guard-gated development offers a quiet location with lake views and lots of nicely landscaped green space between the buildings. Take the time to walk along the lake or pause at one of the many lakeside benches to enjoy the wildlife - ospreys, eagles, otters, native birds – even fishing.
This condo has two large bedrooms each with full en-suite bathrooms. The master has a new king size bed and there is a new queen size bed in the guest room. A hide-a-bed couch in the living room can accommodate two more. The kitchen has been recently updated with custom maple cabinets, granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. Step out the kitchen sliding patio doors to enjoy the private courtyard complete with gas grill. This condo has new tile and paint throughout with carpet in the master bedroom. Enjoy southern views across the lawn towards the sparkling blue lake from the living room, lanai and the master bedroom. The spacious guest bedroom has its own wide sliding doors which access a hidden, private garden patio with views of the lake. Since this is a first floor unit, there is no need to hassle with stairs. Step out the lanai door and take a short stroll along the lake path and across the foot bridge to the pool/spa area. A large, heated pool and whirlpool await, quietly situated away from the condo buildings. Enjoy lounging in the sun on the expansive pool deck or in the shade of the many large, beautiful trees. The pool pavilion provides plentiful table seating and comes equipped with a gas grill.
Looking for additional activities? Try out the community’s nicely manicured 18 hole executive golf course or one of the clay tennis courts. Extend your bike, walk or run by slipping out the conveniently located back gate onto the quiet Vanderbilt Drive and use the bike/pedestrian path that parallels the road. Heading north three miles will get you to Bonita Beach or Barefoot Beach and three miles to the south will have you at Delnor Wiggins State Park or Vanderbilt Beach. There you can choose other activities like kayaking, jet-skiing and para-sailing. One mile south of the back gate is the public Cocohatchee River Marina for boat lovers. Lover’s Key State Park and the south end of Fort Myers beach are about a fifteen minute car drive north.
For grocery shopping, head out the back gate just minutes to the north to a new Publix grocery store or go 10 minutes south for Walmart. Other nearby grocery stores include Whole Foods, Fresh Market or Trader Joe’s. There are many great restaurants along Bonita Beach Road or out the front gate along US 41. Nightlife abounds at nearby shopping venues like the Mercato, Coconut Point or Olde Naples. Consider a summer beach vacation, lounging in the warm gulf waters.
