Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in December 2017

This is our favorite spot on Ft. Myers Beach due to the pristine beach, proximity to Town Square & restaurants and low amount of traffic on this end of the beach. After staying in several different condo buildings, Gateway Villas has been our top choice for 3 years in a row. Now after staying in #899, we have found our...

About the neighbourhood
We are right on the beach at the quiet north end of Estero Island (Fort Myers Beach); so still within walking distance of the pier, restaurants and shops. There are grocery shops nearby - accessible by car, taxi, or the local trolley bus that stops outside the condo. Some supermarkets will also deliver. The north end is a no through road, so there is no through traffic. There is private parking at the condos.
Disney is about 200 miles door to door - about 3.5-4 hours drive. Key West is 8 hours to drive or 4 hours on the fast ferry. Or just hang out on Fort Myers Beach, It is a beautiful place to just relax and listen to the surf and watch the dolphins, or go boating,or fish the back bay and from the pier, or walk and jog the beach.
Getting around
A car is always useful; but if you don't want to rent a car, then there are regular taxi fares to & from the airport; and to the local supermarkets (Publix, Walmart and Topps). There is also a government operated trolley bus that will take you either along the beach as far as Lovers Key or off the beach to the supermarkets.
Gateway Villas is 0.5 miles from the pier where there are several shops and restaurants. So kick off your shoes and take a pleasant stroll along the beach, wet your feet in the surf, and watch the dolphins and sunsets.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Fort Myers (RSW): 30.0 km
Ferry: Key West Ferries: 1.0 km
Our nearest airport is Fort Myers = RSW (Regional South West). This is about 20 miles from the beach; so a regular taxi ride or you can rent a car. The next nearest airports are Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Tampa and Orlando - at 2-4 hours drive away.

Fort Myers Beach is also easily accessible by road from I-75. Junction 131 is typically the best junction.

Gateway Villas is at 500 Estero Blvd, Fort Myers Beach, FL 33931 at the easier accessible north end of Fort Myers Beach. We are the building just after the building with the potted palm painted on the side.
