Looking for a conveniently located beach getaway that can accommodate up to 12 people? Your search is over: Casa Bella Manor, a recently renovated 4-bedroom, 3-story compound, is just one block from the velvety white sands of Fort Myers Beach and the sparkling waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Because Casa Bella Manor is actually 2 units in one building, it offers both privacy and togetherness—perfect if you’re vacationing with another family or several couples.
There are plenty of gathering spaces, and just as many areas where you can treat yourself to some alone time. Each floor has its own living area, master bedroom, and at least 1 bathroom, plus central air-conditioning, cable TV, and free WiFi. The ground floor is a self-contained unit that can sleep up to 4 people: As well as the queen-size bed in the bedroom, the living room sofa converts into a bed to accommodate another 2 people.
The living area and the bedroom have their own flat-screen TVs, so no matter where you’re sleeping, you can watch your favorite late-night show in bed. The drop-leaf dining table can open up to seat 4, and the kitchen is equipped with all the appliances, cookware, and tableware you could need, whether you’re brewing a single cup of coffee or preparing a holiday meal for the whole gang. A spiral staircase takes you up to the 2nd floor, where you’ll find the entrance to Casa Bella Manor’s 2nd unit. This floor hosts another open-plan living/dining/kitchen area, even more spacious and sunnier than the one below.
There’s plenty of room to play Pictionary or Uno around the coffee table or to kick back on the striped seating for before-dinner snacks or after-dinner drinks. The 2nd floor’s covered balcony is another lovely hangout spot—catching up with friends and family is, even more, fun when you can do so in the sunshine and the salt-kissed sea breeze. Like the ground-floor kitchen, that of the 2nd floor was impeccably renovated, and if you’re traveling with a crowd, the convenience of having access to 2 kitchens can’t beat—you can whip up twice as many margaritas or batches of chili in the same amount of time! The 2nd-floor dining table can seat 6 comfortably. There are 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms on the 2nd floor.
The master has a lofty king-size bed; the other room, with 2 twin beds and an en-suite bathroom, is perfect for the kids. The 4th bedroom and bathroom are upstairs, on the 3rd floor. This bedroom also has a king-size bed for maximum comfort, and the sitting room on this floor can sleep 2 more, thanks to its sofa bed. The top floor’s sitting room just might become your favorite: Not only is it decorated in laid-back tropical island style, but it also opens onto a balcony from which you can look out over the palm trees toward the gulf. When you’re not on the balcony or in the sitting room watching the large flat-screen
TV, you can get together a game of Monopoly, mah-jongg, or rummy at the adjacent card table. Among Casa Bella Manor’s other amenities are an outdoor gas grill and patio table, so that you can cook and dine alfresco. Clean towels will be waiting when you arrive, the beds will have been made up, and there will be extra bedding as well.
There’s also a washer and dryer for maximum convenience. Casa Bella Manor’s best feature, though, is its location. You can stroll to the beach in less than 5 minutes; once there, you can swim, parasail, paddle board, fish, canoe, kayak, or simply stretch out on a blanket and watch dolphins cavort among the boats in the gulf as seagulls soar overhead. You’re also near restaurants, shops, Lovers Key State Park, and so much more. Fun for all and all for fund could well be the motto of Casa Bella Manor.
