Walking into Gateway Villa 397 we find the bright, spacious open plan living area, with its comfortable and well-designed seating including the queen-sized sofa sleeper, all placed to take full advantage of both the large screen TV and DVD player, as well as the glass screen doors that not only lead out onto the lanai but bring the mesmerizing views of the beach and ocean beyond right into the home. Behind the wonderful seating area is the glass-topped dining table, perfect for the whole family with plenty of space, in common with the rest of the property, whilst still being able to take full advantage of the views across the beach.

With a microwave, refrigerator and dishwasher, as well as conveniences such as coffee machine and toaster, all in a cleverly designed and compact package that makes meal preparation at Gateway Villa 397 a pleasure, not a chore.
Through the glass doors is the focal point of Gateway Villa 397, the lanai. Here you can enjoy the magnificent views over the beach and the ocean beyond, with the blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico stretching as far as the eye can see. You can sit back, relax in the shade and watch the world go by, or take advantage of the dining table and enjoy a meal with that marvelous view as the backdrop.
The master bedroom is a wonderfully bright room with direct access to the lanai through large glass doors that also allow light to flood through during the day. Within this wonderful bright room is a king-sized bed, TV, and masses of storage space, creating a wonderful space for any time of day. The en-suite has the benefit of a vanity unit with plenty of storage and mirror over, as well as a large shower, giving you everything you may need for your vacation. The guest room has bold décor and a queen sized bed, with a TV for entertainment and plenty of space to enjoy. The en-suite has a large shower and more storage in the vanity unit.
Outside is the wonderful pool complex, with its large heated pool and seating all around, as well as a barbecue area right on the sand, where you can enjoy a more informal meal amongst the palms. Once onto the beach you can enjoy a stroll along the shore or maybe try your hand at paddle boarding, or spend the day conquering the waves. It’s all just outside at Gateway Villa 397.
Outside of the complex itself, Gateway Villa 397 is well located close to the other attractions of Fort Myers Beach, with the stores and restaurants of Times Square just a short journey away, whilst the wonderful wetland trails of Lovers Key State Park are just a trolley ride away, where you can see the Florida wildlife in its natural habitat, or take a kayak tour and explore even further.

We had a great 7 night stay, the condo has the most beautiful views from the living room and bed room; it had few quirks like the hot water pressure from the faucets; was disappointed it only provided 4 bath towels and there were 6 of us & W/D not in condo but laundromat was avail. Beautiful large porch! We would return and recommend it.

Peaceful Gulf Retreat
Wonderful Vacation. Very quiet area of Ft. Myers Beach. Spacious condo and very clean. Close to other barrier islands. Great restaurants in area - Doc Ford's, Parrot Key, and Nervous Nellie's. Easy access in and out of condo area. Beautiful sunsets. Only suggestion is to be able to leave keys in condo instead of driving back to rental office
