How to Choose a Luxury Condo That Fits Your Needs

When it comes to condos, there is a wide variety of options available. Before making a decision, it's important to reflect on the kind of lifestyle you desire. By asking yourself a few key questions, you can narrow down the choices and find the perfect condo that suits your needs.


When we think of condos, our minds instantly conjure up images of apartments set up in a high-rise building, but condominiums are more about the type of ownership than the actual home setup. Condos are a unique type of residence, combining a single-family home and an apartment complex. Residents of condominiums own their homes individually but have joint ownership of the building as a whole. For this reason, condo associations are created to maintain the property, keep it clean, and keep the residents happy. This ownership setup can be applied to many types of homes, including the traditional condo apartments, lofts, townhouses, and detached houses, where the exterior of the home and the neighborhood in which it is located are maintained by an association.

How to Choose a Condo Location

REALTORS® will tell you that finding a home starts with location, location, location, and they are absolutely correct. The location of your home can be the deciding factor of the condo you choose simply because of the convenience you’ll have getting to and from wherever you need to go and the statistics for the neighborhood. 

The neighborhood can be well-established or it can be an up-and-coming neighborhood where you can get in before the prices skyrocket. If you’re a foodie, you’ll enjoy a neighborhood that is located close to a diverse collection of restaurants, like the Estero Island and Fort Myers Beach waterfront dining options. Golfers will enjoy easy access to top-rated golf courses and beach-goers will enjoy a condo that is located near or on the beach.

If you’re opting for the traditional condo set in a high-rise building, you’ll also have to decide which floor is best for you. Grandview at Bay Beach is an 11-story building in South Fort Myers Beach, just two miles north of Lovers Key State Park. It will be the first condominium tower built in that area since 2008 and the final tower in Waterside at Bay Beach.

How Important is Community Camaraderie?

Community camaraderie relies mostly on the residents of any given neighborhood, but if your neighborhood is set up to embrace camaraderie between residents, it increases your chances of finding a group of friends that is right for you. Communities that include a clubhouse with dining options, card, book, and other clubs, fitness centers, and a plethora of planned activities are a great start to building friendships with your neighbors. Grandview at Bay Beach, for example, features resort-inspired amenities that are designed for Florida’s outdoor lifestyle, enhancing your health and wellness, and connecting residents with the area’s natural environment. They will include a club room, fitness center, yoga studio, men’s and women’s changing rooms, and a catering kitchen serving a large lanai and outdoor bar. Outdoor amenities will include a resort-style pool and spa, fire pits with gathering spaces, barbecue grills, an event lawn with a trellis, and four lighted tennis courts.

Do You Want a Land View or a Water View?

Whether you’re opting to stay on the ground in a detached home, villa, or townhouse, or heading to the top in a luxury condo, the view from your window or backyard can add to the luxury of your home. Do you want to look out and see a beautiful backdrop of lush landscape and trees or do you want to have a lake, ocean, or gulf view? This detail ties in to the location of your home and should therefore be considered at the same time. If you’re looking for a luxury waterfront condo, Grandview at Bay Beach was named after the panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico and Estero Bay that will be visible from the condos in the building.

Do You Need Ample Storage Space?

We collect many sentimental treasures throughout our lives, as well as many items that take up a lot of room, but are still functional in our lifestyle. Housing these items can sometimes take a lot of space and living in a home that doesn’t allow for them isn’t ideal. Garages and attics are a great place to store the little treasures, tools, or holiday decorations we need, so if you need the extra space, make sure your future home has it. This may guide you towards detached homes and villas that are built with garages in place, but many high-rise condos are also being developed with additional storage space.  Grandview at Bay Beach will feature six units that will be exclusive penthouses with 11-foot ceilings and a two-car garage per unit. The remaining 52 units will have an assigned parking garage space with storage.

If you’re seeking the Florida lifestyle in a luxury waterfront condo located in a place filled with friendly people, gulf-side dining and shopping, and some of the most beautiful weather and scenery, contact the Sales Executives at Grandview at Bay Beach in Fort Myers Beach and Estero Island.
