“Perfection and Simplicity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

It gets harder to leave every year! The three bedroom condos are great for EVERY age group. Easily child proofed and very safe for seniors! The wet bar in the livingroom is perfect for a happy hour just before sunset. My 4 year old grandson had great fun sitting behind the bar serving hors oeuvres. If you are tired, the sunset from the screened lanai is fabulous, or you can take the party to the beach, great for the kids to run off excess energy! The condo is well stocked, even had cookie sheets and a small juicer. Wonderful washer and dryer, I suggest bringing a bag of detergent pods although a small amount of starter detergent, dishwashing liquid etc are provided. The coffee pot takes flat bottom filters...I always throw some in my suitcase. There is a Publix grocery store down the street and a drugstore even closer. If you prefer Whole foods, there is one in Naples about 20 minutes by car. Gullwing is, in my opinion, on the most perfect beach. The sand is nicer than Sanibel, and if you walk south on the beach you will find endless shells and wildlife and it is a WIDE beach which great if you are chasing toddlers! The pool is wonderful, the gas grills are readily available (we have never had to wait) and the staff is always kind and helpful! You can rent either a Cabana or two chairs and an umbrella (we did the chairs because they are movable) on the beach, which I recommend if you have little ones who want to dig in the sand, it gives them a little break from the sun. This year, we expanded our group and had extended family right downstairs, it was awesome! I cant wait for next year!!!!!

Room Tip: We have only stayed in three bedroom beachfront....plenty of room to spread out so great for any age...

Stayed in a 3 BR condo with my parents, two young kids, and my brother and his wife. Condo is on the nicest part of Fort Myers beach. Great views of the ocean from all condos, at least the high ones. Diverse mix of young, old, families, and a few Spring breakers. Well maintained units but not fancy. Pool is sunny almost all day. Staff is friendly and welcoming. Kitchen works but if you are doing much more than grilling for dinner the supplies (pans) are limited.

When there is traffic it may take over an hour to get to downtown and during high season there is always traffic so if you want to spend a lot of your time downtown you would be better off on the north end of the beach.

If you want more sun on your balcony during the Spring ask for a South facing unit.

Overall we loved our stay and will be back.

We stayed at the Gullwing Beach Resort February 28th through March 4th. The weather was cold and windy but the accommodations were fabulous. We rented a 2 bedroom condo and it was perfect for our family of four, 3 adults and a teen. We were traveling with another family of five and they loved it too. The condo unit had everything we needed. It was nice not to have to go out to eat for every meal when feeding teens. We all used the hot tub and the kids used the heated pool in the cold weather. They even went in the ocean. We rented bikes from a place nearby and rode the beach. The condo is conveniently located to a shopping area with restaurants and a great farmers stand in the parking lot! Thanks Gullwing! I know we will be back and we will spread the word.

This will be the second year we have stayed at this condo , right on Fort Myers beach. Though I am sure there are cheaper places to stay, this place is immaculately clean and up to date. From the kitchens, to the included washer/dryers, these are great places for the whole family to stay. The pool area is clean and steps from the best part of Fort Myers beach.....A great location and superb staff.....would come back anytime for this location......

Room Tip: higher up, the better the views......we stayed on the north side, where you have views of the Gul...

We rented a two bedroom condo the last part of February, beginning of March. The room was very spacious and clean. The view of the beach and bay looked like a postcard. We were very pleased with our accommodations. The weather was not very accommodating however. We didn't get to use the pool area or hot tub. It looked small but nice.

Our only complaint would be the smell as you walk out onto the beach toward the water. A LOT of sea gulls seemed to enjoy congregating on this section of beach. I would suggest wearing your shoes! It smelled! I was surprised no one else had commented on this. So maybe it isn't a usual problem.

We loved eating at South Beach Grill. It is very close and the food was so good. Try Truly Scrumptious for breakfast! The orange marmalade French toast was wonderful!

We stayed here for 5 nights. Awesome place. Loved the unit and the beach is beautiful. The staff couldn't be nicer, they even let us borrow a cooler. Will definitely return. We came with our neighbors and the kids aged 13, 14, 16 and 17 rented bikes for the stay and enjoyed biking each morning. The cabanas on the beach were perfect

GullWing oceanfront suite was incredibly clean, luxurious and refreshing! The entrance way lets you know you have arrived! Upon entering the large three bedroom, 2 bath condo you see wonderful artwork, decorations and style that remind you that you are on vacation! The bathrooms are large, the pool area, spa area and beach are clean and serviced. There are nice shops and restaurants with entertainment within walking distance! Fun when you want with music and dancing, yet quiet to be able to get a peaceful sleep! Relaxation at its best! The condo has a large living area that includes full kitchen, wet bar, dining area, large Livingston, flatscreen TV's in all rooms and a large screened in patio that overlooks a beautiful white beach! The pool area is beautiful and the spa is large and hot! This vacation spot is easy to get to, and you feel as if you went to an island off the Bahamas! Wow! Great deal and can easily fit 6 guests! Highly recommended!
