Property type condo

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Tired of vacations where you spend more time in the car than you do on the beach? Come stay at Gateway Villa 794. Not only are the pristine white sands of Fort Myers Beach and the serene Gulf of Mexico at your doorstep, but you’re also just a short walk from the restaurants, shops, and nightlife of the island’s Times Square area.

A corner unit, located on the 7th floor, the 2-bedroom condo has 2 screened-in balconies overlooking the beach and the gulf. Being a corner unit lets lots of natural light in from the South wall windows, not found in interior units! You’ll have a front-row seat to the glorious sunsets over the sparkling waters, and any time of day you have a good chance of seeing dolphins and manatees play among the boats and pelicans dive-bomb for fish. Revel in the salt-scented breeze as you linger over your morning coffee, or savor dinner while birds soar and swoop through the endless skies. The condo itself is sunny, cheerful, and airy.

The tiled floors of the living/dining area will feel fantastic underfoot when you return from a day spent gathering shells on the beach or walking the trails of nearby Bowditch Point Regional Park, a prime spot for bird watching. Kick back and catch a movie on the HDTV, curl up in a chair to follow up on emails (Gateway Villa 794 has free wifi), or stretch out on the couch for a well-deserved nap.

When you’re not exploring the multitude of restaurants or dining on the balcony, you can enjoy your meals at the cozy dining table or the breakfast counter that separates the kitchen from the living/dining area. The open floor plan lets you keep an eye on the kids playing in the living room or keep up with the dining table conversation while you cook. And whether you’re preparing a holiday feast or simply microwaving popcorn for a family movie night, the kitchen has everything you need: appliances, cookware, prep tools, and tableware. There’s even a dishwasher because when the beach is your backyard, you don’t want to waste time scrubbing plates.

The carefree casual vibe of the living area carries on into the bedrooms. We’re not sure what we love most about the master bedroom: The two double beds and TV or the doors that open onto a private lanai. Nothing’s more romantic than enjoying a drink under the stars with that special someone before turning in for the night!

The 2nd bedroom, with 2 twin beds, is perfect for the kids. Like the master bedroom, it has plenty of storage, lots of room to spread out, and its own TV. With a full bathroom for each bedroom, mornings will be stress-free: no lines to use the shower! Plenty of fresh towels will be waiting for you, as will bedding, pillows, and blankets. Keep your linens at home where they belong! Be sure to pack your swimsuits, though: Gateway Villa has a large heated pool overlooking the gulf. After your swim, dry off on one of the poolside chaises. There is a washer and dryer in the condo so you can refresh your clothes and towels throughout the week.

The condo also has a shaded outdoor dining area complete with barbecues where you can grill the trout or snapper you reeled in earlier that day—or the Gulf shrimp and burgers you bought at the nearby supermarket! And of course, there’s the beach itself. The American Sand Sculpting Championship is held here every year, and once you step onto the velvety sands you’ll know why.

The serene waters of the gulf, meanwhile, are perfect for paddle boarding, parasailing, jet skiing, or simply splashing about. Should you want to explore the southern portion of Fort Myers Beach, you can hop on one of the frequent trolleys that run the length of the island. Or venture even farther afield and take a casino cruise or a boat ride to Sanibel Island.

One thing’s for sure: When you stay at Gateway Villa 794, you can relax as much as you want, but you’ll never be bored. So what are you waiting for? Book your stay today!

Very clean and beautifully decorated

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we enjoyed our stay in this unit. There were only 4 bath towels for 5 people to use. I had to wash towels every day. Also, the only cool place was in the living room area. Thank God they had little fans in the bedrooms where we could put them on the nightstand and aim them at our face. The AC did not cool off the bedrooms enough.

Did not like driving to the other end of the “island” to pick up/return gate key. The road is under construction due to new pipes being laid. You will get car sick driving there and back.

Perfect stay at Gateway Villa 794

  • 5 of 5

What a GREAT stay! This condo was the perfect size for our family of four. The view from both balconies are amazing! The kitchen had everything we needed to make our own meals. Everything you could think of they have! The beach chairs were great! I am actually going to look for the same ones to purchase that they provided. We did bring our own beach cart which made it very easy to get back and forth from the beach. It is a short walk to Time Square and which offers plenty restaurants and shopping. I love the keyless entry! This made it much easier. Picking up the gate key wasn't too bad. It gave us the chance to stop at Publix on our way back to the condo. The washer and dryer was a big plus to have in the unit. We are hoping to stay here again very soon! Thank you!

Great Condo. Great Location. Great Get-away

  • 5 of 5

We brought the family to Ft. Myers Beach for a great get-away. My wife and I shared this condo with our son, his wife, and their 5-year old. There was plenty of room for everyone. The rest of our family were in another condo. We were glad that we had picked 794. The furnishings are updated, as well as the kitchen and bathrooms. It was really handy having a washer and dryer right there in the condo. Plenty to do in the area, as it is within walking distance of Times Square and tons of restaurants. A great experience and a great condo.
