Find your FOUNTAIN of YOUTH in Sanibel! #733/ 2 b/r 2 bath
When you visit Sanibel Island, there is just "something in the air!" This island is rich in history & intrigue and is believed to have been discovered in 1513 by the famous explorer Ponce de Leon on his quest for the Fountain of Youth! ...Yes, really!! He named the island 'Santa Isybella' after his Spanish queen, Isabella. Thus, over the years it became: San-ibel.......!
In our light filled condo at Mariner's Pointe, we offer you a tranquil space to relax and unwind. Our unit faces westward--toward the canal, a place for beautiful Sunset dinners and long conversations on t...he lanai. In fact, the entire back of our condo is made of glass walls which can push to one side--opening up the entire condo's living space to the screened lanai--and views of the boats, sounds of herons, pelicans and other sea birds and, of course! the glistening, crystal blue waters....and, perhaps, if you're lucky-- a dolphin or two! or a Manatee!!
Mariner's Pointe features a fishing pier on the San Carlos Bay, a boat canal and boat dockage. (additional fee), 2 heated pools, tennis and shuffleboard courts and a nice grilling area. *No fishing license for Mariner Point renters is required!
It is a great place for kayaking, paddle boarding or just hanging out by the pool.
Our unit has just been completely updated and well appointed by the owner/designer and with hopes that you will feel at home! It is a large, finely appointed space to stay-- quiet and tranquil. All beds are super comfortable-- the master bed is King sized with soft bedding and towels that are plush! The second bedroom features twin sized beds and also has views of the canal. We have TVs in both bedrooms as well as the living room and free wifi. The Kitchen and both bathrooms are all newly remodeled with beautiful custom tile, cabinets and granite. We also have a sleeper sofa and there is a washer/dryer in the unit. There are nice, new pots and pans; we picked everything for us! It is, literally--our home away from home and has a laid back, beachy feel to it that we know you will enjoy~
We also offer 4 beach chairs, a cooler, & beach towels. You can rent bikes from Billy's bikes and they will actually deliver them to you! Then, it is a safe 5 minute ride to the most beautiful beaches in the world! Paved biking trails are all over the island; start off going to the lighthouse, built in 1884, which is literally right in your backyard! Then, there are Miles of shelling beaches to choose from or discover--(*best to go early and at LOW tide...) Don't miss nature walks, biking or driving thru the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge which is 6300 acres of mangroves, bay and estuaries. On our last trip thru Ding Darling, we saw hundreds of birds, flocks of pink pelicans and one baby alligator!
There are sooooo many great restaurants it is hard to pick-- but you must make one stop, at least! to the Island Cow!!
Have a great time in Sanibel! With so many great places to stay it is hard to decide, but we hope you will stay with us as you hunt for your Fountain of Youth here on Sanibel Island!

Additional Location Information
SANIBEL AND CAPTIVA ISLANDS
Arthur Frommer’s #1 Destination
Come see why we’re Arthur’s top spot. Enjoy pristine beaches in an unparalleled natural setting. Sanibel is two-thirds nature preserves and both islands have no structure over three stories. Get away from it all in this peaceful natural setting that still boasts great restaurants, shopping and entertainment.
Fishing and shelling are excellent and Sanibel has over 30 miles of bicycle paths. See exotic wildlife all over the islands and in the Ding Darling nature preserve. Watch dolphin frolic just yards from the beach.
Golf, tennis, canoeing, kayaking, windsurfing, kite-surfing and boating are just a few of the activities available.

My family so enjoyed experiencing Sanibel Island. Staying at Mariner Point was so convenient and easy. Fishing off the dock, watching the Manatees swim in the canal, short bike ride to everything. Accomodations were perfect for the four of us. From Sunsets to dolphins...I think my family and I had the most relaxing and rewarding vacation. Will do it again!
