About the neighbourhood
Our condo is located at the quiet north end of Fort Myers Beach. The north end is a no through road, so there is no through traffic. There is a trolley service along the Beach and to the local shopping mall. There are several major shops within a few miles - Publix, Target, Walmart, etc plus many restaurants both on and off the beach. There is private parking at the condos. Our nearest airport is RSW (Fort Myers) about 20 miles away with regular taxi service; you could use the airports at Fort Lauderdale (FLL), Miami (MIA) or Tampa (TPA) but these are about 2.5-3 hours drive; and Orlando airport (MCO) a little further. 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 b... more
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.
