Our home away from home!
We love staying in this condo! My mother and I have been bringing my two young boys here since 2013 and love every minute of it. ( my husband and dad are not beach lovers so we leave them home)The condo is always comfortable and very clean. The furniture is nice and there have been several upgrades since we have been coming. We had a problem with the refrigerator the first year but the owner replaced it and is always easy to work with and very responsive to make sure we are happy. He is always helpful and friendly and wants to make sure we always have a wonderful vacation. He usually calls or emails while we are there to make sure everthing is ok. The bedrooms are very spacious and my boys always want to sleep in the "comfy" bed. We love that there are 2 balconies and have beautiful ocean views from either one. The beach is quiet and nice. White sand and calm water with plenty of shells and critters to check out. It really is the best beach in my opinion! We consider this our 2nd home even though we don't own it. We have stayed in other condos on the island but not since we found this one. We just don't want to stay anywhere else. As soon as we get home the kids ( and I ) want to know when they can go back. It is close to many attractions and good restaurants and the pier. We usually eat at the condo in the evenings though. The kids play in the sand while we grill outside. The whole facility is gated which makes us feel safe also. Our biggest issue while we are there is knowing that we have to go home before we are ready! This is definitely our happy place! We are already making plans to return this summer! Thanks Don for letting us rent our favorite condo from you! Teratera g.

Long Term Vacationer
Our family has vacationed in Ft. Myers Beach for over 20 years. We stayed at a few places before settling on Gate Way Villas. After staying in a couple of different rooms, we decided to request the same room and became internet friends with the owner. Don is very polite and always checks with us each year via email to ask when we plan to stay the following year which is a plus. The pictures really do not do the room and area justice. The room over the years has been upgraded and is always clean and welcoming. Our favorite additions were the washer & dryer and most recently the remodeled bath room. Even though we live in Florida and have a pool, our 3 girls learned to swim in the massive pool. The condo is only a few minutes’ walk to the pier and places to rent water toys. If you like a cool treat; you must try out Kilwins on the pier. The bedrooms are spacious and we enjoy relaxing on the two porches. If you like to cook while on vacation, the kitchen is well suited for most anything and they have grills downstairs with places to sit and eat. I highly recommend Fort Myers Beach and this lovely condo.Mike M.

Home away from home!
We celebrate a family reunion every year in FT Meyers and I am thrilled to have found this unit. We have been renting the same condo since 2014 and will continue to reserve it yearly. The owner has been great to work with, the rental company has always been friendly and competent. We have seen several updates through the years and understand that they will continue to improve each year. The location is fabulous - close to all the attractions, restaurants, shops, and only steps away from the beach. The view from every window is breathtaking as one side looks over the ocean and the other looks over the sound and town. I have recommended it to friends and family. We are always happy to arrive to a nice, clean, comfortable and nicely appointed condo after driving for 2 days each year. We are very much looking forward to this year's visit in July.Carol F.

NICE PLACE FOR FAMILY VACATION!
Came here for one week vacation - family of 6. We all had a great time. My oldest daughter said after the first day that this was her favorite place that we had been to. We grilled out one night and the community grills were in great shape. Beach was awesome. Met a Chicago family and an Indiana family that were staying here. Everyone around was great. Condo is very nice and clean. The pics are very accurate. We took a day trip (only a little over an hour drive) to the Everglades and rode airboats and then talked to a ranger at the Park and found some places you could go ride down dirt roads and do your own exploring which was a fun thing to do.

We recently returned from a week at this Gateway Villas condo. We were in Florida for Christmas with several family members. Some family stayed in other GV condos, others at other nearby locations. This condo was deemed the most comfortable, best equipped and had the best sunrise/sunset views - thus, we hosted all family events. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare home-cooked meals, the in-unit washer/dryer are convenient, and both private decks have seating. The owner was great to work with before, during and after our stay. He was responsive to all of our questions, kept us updated on changes, and was genuinely interested in how our stay was progressing. The condo property is well-maintained, secure, and right on the BEACH! Property amenities include a heated pool, shuffleboard, a grill area, and a tiki hut. We enjoyed all of these areas, feeling safe even after dark. The parking lot is gated 24 hr/day and the building is locked at night. The condo location is at the north end of Fort Myers Beach/Estero Island. It is far enough away from Times Square to be quiet, but still close enough to walk down to the pier or enjoy a dinner out. It is also close enough to walk to Bowditch Park at the north end of the island.Mike & Tami Car
