Welcome to Gateway Villas #495, the perfect gated beachfront vacation address in paradise! Located in the quieter North end of Estero Island, this 1 bedroom, 1 bath 4th floor condo with a beachy/nautical d?cor, has a 180 degree view of the Gulf of Mexico, and is an easy 10-12 minute walk to Times Square and the numerous boutiques, restaurants, and night life afforded at this end of the island. There is a minimum stay of 7 days. A beach trolley service is available as well that runs the entire length of the island, all the way to Lovers Key State Park. Its close proximity to the Sky Bridge offers easier ingress and egress, making Sanibel Island, the downtown Fort Myers River District and Edison Winter Home, as well as Southwest Florida Regional Airport all within a 20-40 minute drive. A short drive to mid-island takes you to the Publix supermarket and upscale Bistro on the Bay restaurant, and a little further south is the Santini Marina Plaza with many other restaurants and shops. Just off the south end of the island is Lovers Key State Park, and further south lies Bonita Beach and Naples. An added feature to the north end, however, is that Bowditch Point Regional Park is literally just short walk away and is a beach to bay nature preserve with walking trails and bike rentals.



Upon entering the gated resort, your arrival and settling in will be a breeze with the use of bellman's trolley and carts available on the ground floor level. Ample parking is also available. You may catch a glimpse of the over-sized heated beachfront pool and lounging area while unloading, as well as the shaded outdoor dining area with BBQ grills, and last but not least, the beach itself! After entry through a secure lobby an elevator will swiftly take you to the fourth floor to unpack for your adventure in your tropical gulfside paradise. Upon exiting the elevator to the left, there is a carpeted open air walkway to your condo. This venue is equipped with all the amenities you are accustomed to at home, PLUS the tropical setting.



Gateway Villas #495 is a bright, cheerful Southwest Florida style beachfront condo, truly exuding a sophisticated beach scene, with one bedroom and one bath, and a screened in balcony. There is tile flooring throughout. Everything is available that you would need to cook daily multicourse dinners, or simply make a pot of coffee in the morning. And for those barbecue enthusiasts, there is a beachside gas grill area.



Entry is into a tiled foyer, with bedroom immediately to the left. Furnishings include a queen-size bed, night stands and lamps, triple dresser with wall mirror, floor lamps and ample closet space. From the window in the bedroom is an awesome view of Estero Pass, where you can watch the high-speed Key West Express depart in the morning and return in the evening. The adjacent bathroom has a nicely tiled walk-in shower with sliding glass doors, commode, and granite-top vanity and lavatory with ample storage space.



Back into the hall and to the left is the kitchen, dining, and living areas, and immediately you will be swept away by the expansive views, the peacefulness of the Gulf waters and the sugar-white sand beach in front of you. Open the sliding glass doors to the balcony and let the island breezes transport you to that perfect, calm vacation feel.



The kitchen has an architectural tray ceiling with indirect lighting, and is equipped with everything needed for meal preparation. The cabinets are fully stocked with all the meal preparation essentials. Appliances include refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, range with self-cleaning oven, and microwave in a cabinet niche. There is a European style stainless steel sink with disposal. Counter tops are granite with tile backsplash, and there is a countertop peninsula adjacent to the living/dining area, with three bar stools.



The living/dining area is nicely furnished with a standard sleeper sofa with end tables and lamps, as well as glass-top coffee table. Opposite the sofa is a flat screen TV for your entertainment pleasure, as well as a dining table seating four. There is also a corner swivel chair and floor lamp. Expansive sliding glass doors lead out to the screen enclosed corner balcony furnished with round table seating four, as well as a lounge chair. The view of the Gulf is amazing and is essentially 180 degrees, with Sanibel Island to the west and the skyline of Naples to the south. The balcony is literally a stone's throw to the beach.



Whether cooking in the kitchen, enjoying a gourmet meal at the dining table, or relaxing on the balcony or in the living room, the sound of the Gulf waters and daily happenings on the beach will call your name. Pelicans will be diving for fish, flying fish will be leaping out of the water, and dolphins will be catching those flying fish in mid-air! All this happens along an expanse of seven miles of white sugar-sand beach right outside your door. Take in the gorgeous nightly sunsets with someone special.



For the adventurous, Jet Ski and parasailing rentals are just a short walk away. As noted, Times Square, The Pier, shopping, countless restaurants and nightlife are only a 10-12 minute walk from your door. Pamper yourself at the luxurious Aquagene Spa at the Pink Shell Resort just steps away.



Our rental properties are all outfitted with high tech features such as remote entry locks and high speed wireless internet, etc.



Come and experience Gateway Villas #495, with sunsets that will ignite a flame inside you and help you remember the special times in your life, all while creating priceless moments for you and your loved ones to share. If this sounds like something you would like to experience, then give us a call or book online today!
