Gateway Villa 796, Gulf Front, 2 Bedrooms, 7th Floor, Heated Pool, Sleeps 6
Ft. Myers - Bonita Beach
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 master 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 master 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!

This was our third stay at this property and second in this unit. It's an easy walk to Times Square and the pier. The unit is very comfortable. It is a bit dated, but nothing to keep you from having a great stay.

We really enjoyed our stay at this nice condo. Loved the location. Was easy walk to restaurants, etc. The beach was great with plenty of shells and warm water. Wish the water was a little clearer but still enjoyed the beach. The condo was clean and the complex was well taken care of. The condo could use a few updates in furniture but overall we were very pleased.

The location of Gateway Villa is fantastic. But be prepared to be awaken by noise from your upstairs neighbor (who is a permanent resident) each morning by 5am. It sounds as if furniture is being moved around. Also, if anyone is using the second bedroom beware of the elevator noise, the constant sound of the motor running the elevator. Also the second bedroom is right on the outside hall by the elevator so if you have disrespectful neighbors, which we did, you will hear that noise all night as well. Other than those two things, the property is well maintained, the pool is gorgeous and the views are to die for.

We had a wonderful holiday, everything was perfect, the condo was perfect for 4 adults. Clean and lots of room. We had to call for service on our shower but the problem was taken care of promptly. We stayed two weeks and wish it had been 4 weeks.

We have stayed at this condo for several years and booked it again for next year. This time we noticed it was not cleaned well when we arrived, and there are items that need to be repaired and/or replaced. Hoping it doesn't continue to deteriorate. We look forward to staying here each year!
