A spacious balcony overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Bright, impeccably furnished rooms. A heated pool. The beach as your backyard. Restaurants and shops just a stroll away. Gateway Villa 796 offers all this, and so much more!

Located on the 7th floor of a gated complex, Gateway Villa 796 proves that elegance and convenience can go hand in hand. As soon as you step into the open living-dining area you’ll know you made the right choice of vacation getaway. The furnishings are as gorgeous as they are comfortable, from the cushiony sofa (which opens into a bed for 2!) and the roomy armchairs to the dining table that seats 6 with ease.

There’s plenty of space for everyone to congregate in the living room to watch a favorite movie on the HDTV or to sprawl out while surfing the web via the free WiFi. And when you’re not eating at the dining table, set up the Monopoly board or deal a round of cards; the well-padded seats encourage lingering long after the meal is over.

Sliding glass doors separate the living area from the balcony so that even when you’re indoors you can relish the spectacular view of the gulf. Of course, once you’re out on the balcony, the vista is even more stunning. When you’re relaxing on a lounge chair or enjoying drinks at the dining table, you’ll have a front-row seat from which to watch dolphins and manatees frolic among boats as seabirds swoop across the endless skies.

Whether you prefer preparing elaborate gourmet meals or ordering takeout, you’ll appreciate the convenience of the fully equipped kitchen. It comes with all the appliances, cookware, prep tools, and tableware you need, and the open layout means you can gaze out at the gulf as you cook. There’s a dishwasher too because when you’re mere steps from the beach, the last thing you want to waste time doing is scrubbing plates.

If you think the living area of Gateway Villa 796 is luxe, wait until you see the 2 bedrooms. The primary opens onto the balcony, so that you can enjoy a late-night drink under the stars before sprawling out onto the king-size bed. Open the drapes before turning in, and in the morning you’ll wake to a view of the gulf--what a way to start the day! The primary bedroom has its own bathroom, as beautifully furnished as the rest of the condo.

With 2 twin beds, the 2nd bedroom is perfect for the kids. They’ll love having such a lovely space to themselves--especially once they spy the TV in their room! The 2nd bathroom has both a tub and a shower, and with one bathroom for each bedroom, mornings will be much less hectic. Plenty of fresh towels will be waiting for you, as well as bedding, blankets, and pillows--no need to bring your own.

Of course, you don’t come to Florida to spend all your time indoors, even in a condo as lovely as Gateway Villa 796. Be sure to pack your swimsuit, as the complex has its own oversized heated pool. It also has an outdoor dining area, complete with grills so that you can barbecue your catch of the day (or steaks from the supermarket!).

Just beyond the condo grounds is the beach itself. Not only has it long been considered one of the best in the country, thanks to its pristine sands and quiet waters, but it’s also home to the annual American Sand Sculpting Championship. Here’s your chance to build some sandcastles of your own… when you’re not paddleboarding, parasailing, swimming, or searching for shells, that is.

For less strenuous pursuits, saunter over to the island’s Times Square area, a trove of shops, restaurants, and nightspots. It’s great to be able to head out for dinner and drinks without having to drive!

Gateway Villa 796 is a perfectly furnished condo in a perfect location--which means it is the perfect place to stay for a perfect vacation. What are you waiting for? Book your stay today, before someone else beats you to it!

We love Gateway Villa, great location and beach is fabulous. We have rented for several years now and always have a great time.  Our unit 796 needs a little updating will look into a different unit next year if we vacation in Fort Myers beach

Loved the location and view from the screened balcony!  When we checked in everything appeared clean, tidy and in order; however, we found a dutch oven in the cupboard with solidified grease in the bottom and on the sides and some large plates on the bottom of our stack that were still wet and had some food particles on them. Not very pleasant. We also found there was one Xfinity remote missing (we made due with the other). The kitchen could be a bit better equipped (more silverware and regular size glasses for juice, etc) and maybe an update to the toaster? Other than that, our stay was very pleasant. I already miss having my morning coffee on the balcony with the nice breeze and smell of the salty air!!

Overall, we were very happy with this place. Great location and balcony, well stocked and very functional. The coach could be replaced but it is functional. The unit has everything you need in a quiet gated complex on the desirable north end.
