Gorgeous Waterfront ground level 1bedroom - Mariner Pointe 951

Sanibel Island condo

1 bedroom / 1 bathroom / sleeps 2

“Great Stay on Sanibel!” Truly a delightful place to stay. In addition to the incredible view of San Carlos Bay, you'll find everything you need in this well maintained and nicely decorated condo. As you would expect, the kitchen and bathroom were equipped with starter necessities but these owners go above and beyond in ensuring that this is your home away from home. Extra pillows, laundry supplies, tools and scratch paper and pens were in supply. For entertainment, besides books and board games, there's a closet full of fishing gear, tennis rackets & balls, beach gear and other supplies not commonly found in a rental unit. Easy on and off access to the Island is a plus. Highly recommend renting a bicycle to explore the Island. You can't go wrong with this rental.

“Clean, close to the beach, convenient, and perfect for our family vacation!” The condo is a few short steps away from the beach. The beach is beautiful, has a plethora of unusual shells, and is very clean. Susan and Andrew were quick to respond to communication. Thank you for making a memorable visit to the island.

Great 2/2 Sanibel Condo, Nice Pool, Private Beach

Sanibel Island apartment

2 bedrooms / 2 bathrooms / sleeps 6

“Sunshine, beaches, What's not to love?” My husband and I stayed at this pleasant 2 bedroom condo with 2 grown children and one son-in-law. The two bedrooms and two baths worked fine for our group. Our married daughter and hubby had to share a bedroom with her brother. The furnishings in the condo were comfortable and clean without being too new to cause worry about a little sand. There were all sorts of beach toys and towels available. The kitchen had a full range of dishes and I cooked fresh fish from the local grocery store several nights. It was convenient to walk to the lovely uncrowded beach with no high-rises in sight. we kayaked with the condo's kayaks in the lagoon and saw a large range of birds, including an osprey feeding on a fish. We had gorgeous weather and collected quite a few shells. Would definitely return.

Breakers West, end unit B1 (extra windows)

Sanibel Island apartment

2 bedrooms / 2 bathrooms / sleeps 6

“Quiet Relaxing Getaway” Our week at Breakers West unit B1, was delightful. The condo was very comfortable, spacious and spotless. The kitchen had everything needed to prepare meals and there is a dishwasher and washer and dryer available to use as well. We enjoyed breakfast and afternoon cocktails and appetizers on the lanai that overlooks the well maintained grounds and private condo pool. The pool is very refreshing, relaxing, and quiet. There are many restaurants very close by. The bike path is right across the street. It is a very short stroll to the beach. There are chairs available to use and a multitude of shells for collecting. The owners, Lance and Jill were great to work with. Their response time was immediate to our many questions and concerns. Check in at the Waterside Inn was very easy and the staff was very welcoming. We hope to make this our island getaway for many years to come.

“Great location for a great vacation” This penthouse was perfect for our family of four (me and my husband and our kids, ages 18 and 23.) The condo was super clean, had everything we needed, and was in a great location on the island. The owner was great to work with; she kept in communication with us throughout the booking process and during our stay, she answered all of our questions very quickly -- she was never more than a text away. Thanks so much!

Pointe Santo E34, Direct Gulf Front Luxury

Sanibel Island apartment

2 bedrooms / 2 bathrooms / sleeps 8

“Breathtaking views from a spacious and luxurious home!” Everything was fabulous about this beach-front vacation home. The condo itself was very well-appointed and comfortable. It seemed as if all of the furnitue, bedding and kitchen sundries were all new, and the unit was very clean upon arrival. The screened in balcony provided us with awesome views of the gulf and we could even see our children playing on the beach below. Having a large pool on the property was also very nice. The grounds were beautiful and well-kept. Our children participated in a variety of activities provided by the clubhouse for a nominal fee. They brought home terrific crafts made from seashells that they will cherish. This home is close to restaurants and shopping, but that is all secondary to the picture perfect views and the sound of the gulf water -the whole reason we came to vacation in Sanibel inthe first place. We'll definitely come back and stay in this same home again.

***Sanibel Island - Best Kept Secret!! Free Kayaking and Private Beach Access

Sanibel Island condo

2 bedrooms / 2 bathrooms / sleeps 6

“Quiet, private, homey feel” The condo was very clean and spacious. The owner provided chairs, umbrellas, beach cart, beach towels, cooler, everything you needed to have a great stay. We enjoyed playing the provided games in the room at night. We were pleasantly surprised by how quiet the area was. The pool is large and easy to find a place in the sun or shade depending on your preference. The beach is a longer walk than we had anticipated but it is mostly shaded, but the quietness and private beach access made up for the distance. If you love Sanibel you won't be disappointed in this unit. We commented numerous times that the area seemed more relaxing than other beach vacations we have taken.

About Sanibel Island

Nestled on the southwest Florida coast along The Gulf of Mexico, Sanibel Island is truly a beach lover's paradise. Gaze out over the lagoon behind Sanibel's white sand beaches from your vacation rental's balcony, then let the crash of the waves lull you to sleep. With beautiful beaches, great dining, and 18-hole golf just steps away from your rental, vacationing has never been more convenient or enjoyable. Stroll through downtown Sanibel, known for its leisurely pace of life, and enjoy a number of fine dining options. From Italian, to international, to Mediterranean-inspired cuisine, to fresh seafood, there is always an abundance of delicious food here.

Sanibel is also the perfect place to observe rare wildlife and birds. The Darling National Wildlife Refuge occupies one third of the island, and is the ideal bird watching haven. Established in 1945, this refuge is famous for its impressive migratory bird population and applauded for its efforts to protect endangered species in the Sanibel region. Sanibel Island golf courses are also unforgettable. The island is home to two award winning 18-hole courses: Beachview and Dunes. Spend a day at the links, and then hike along over 20 miles of great paths that run from the Lighthouse area throughout the island.

Here are a few additional suggestions:

  • See the Sanibel Island Lighthouse: Constructed in 1884, this steel tower was designed to withstand storms and assist with shipping around the island. Today, it is a destination for vacationers and locals alike.
  • See a performance at The Schoolhouse Theatre: Sanibel's only professional musical theatre offers a variety of shows for couples and families. The company features Broadway caliber talent inside a cozy 160-seat theatre.
  • Explore the Sanibel Historical and Village Museum: Learn more about Sanibel's history, and view the early cottages that once housed Sanibel's pioneers.
  • Rent a bike: Miles of scenic trails wind along the Sanibel coastline. Rent a bike and explore this beautiful island on a sunny day.
  • Spend a night under the stars: Sanibel Island campgrounds can't compare with a night spent on the deck of a private boat. Rent a boat in Sanibel Harbor and let the waves lull you to sleep.
  • See the manatees: Take a charter trip with an experienced guide and experience close encounters with real wild manatees.

Thousands of visitors arrive here each year for beautiful Sanibel Island weddings, honeymoons, long weekend getaways and family reunions. Most visitors decide to stay close to the beach, where it's easy to find a luxury beach rental during any season of the year. The perfect condo rental can offer all the amenities you need to host dinner for your family and friends. Invite everyone over for a barbeque or have a campfire on the sand at sunset. Sanibel Island vacation rental opportunities are plentiful and offer easy access to all of your favorite activities. You may also want to schedule some time to visit other nearby destinations along the Gulf Coast like Marco Island and Naples.

RELAXING LUXURY, GULF VIEW, DIRECTLY ON THE BEACH 930 SQ.FT.; 250 FIVE STARS
Anniversary trip

My husband and I spent 5 nights at Zdenk’s Sundial condo on Sanibel Island. Upon arrival, Zdenk met us at the condo and greeted us with a bottle of champagne for our anniversary. I had mentioned that in one of our correspondences. This was so considerate and my husband and I appreciated that Zdenk remembered this. The first thing we noticed was the view from the lanai. There is a stunning view of the gulf overlooking a pool. The condo was extremely clean and spacious. The kitchen has everything needed if you choose to cook meals. There are beach towels and bath towels in the linen closet. Beach chairs for your use on the lanai. Zdenk took the time to go over all the details of the condo as well as, inform us of good restaurants and things to do on the island. The pool area for the condo is beautifully maintained and it was never overly crowded. We rented bikes for the week. This was a useful way to see the island. The main area with all the restaurants and stores is only a 10 minute bike ride. The restaurants at Sundial were all very good. The hibachi restaurant was excellent. The clam Shack was a favorite. The only restaurant we would not recommend was Sweet Melissa’s. My husband ordered quail and it was raw. Joey’s custard for ice cream was an absolute treat. Overall, we had a terrific experience and will definitely be back!see more
Island Beach Club Penthouse Near CasaYbel Resort
Fabulous getaway!

We (5 adults) stayed for one week. It was very clean ( which is important to us). The showers were clean and the water nice and hot. The washer and dryer was wonderful for having clean towels daily. The sounds of the ocean could be heard despite the condo not being directly on the beach. We could see the beach/ocean, however, from the screened in porch. Very short walk across the courtyard to get to beach. The courtyard area is immaculate. The pool within the courtyard was kept up beautifully. My favorite part was the shelling during our stay. The beach has many varieties of shells and they are in abundance. The owner has some really great books, in the condo, on the different types of shells. Mary Ellen, the owner, was really good to us!!! She was understanding to our circumstance of the flight delays, etc., due to our Minnesota snowstorm (yes, in April). She offer us an early arrival to help out. She was easily reached and responded in a timely manner with questions during our stay. She offered great suggestions to local restaurants and attractions! She takes pride of ownership. One of our favorite features was the serene atmosphere. Very quiet and safe. *If decide to go and typically use a hairdryer, remember to bring one.see more

Great 2/2 Sanibel Condo, Nice Pool, Private Beach
Another great stay, again.

Great unit no problems at all. The only issue was not the unit's fault. The complex had loud parties at night every night until 11PM at the pool. Since the unit is across from the pool, it was hard to get to sleep especially with a 5 year old. I lay the blame fully on the rowdy guests. … see more
