“Paradise Realized.”

Reviewed 27 Aug 2013

I've found that the success of a vacation can largely swing depending on the venue in which I have stayed. The beach, weather and dining will remain the same, but the true difference lies with the reservation. An otherwise beautiful night out can be ruined by coming home to loud neighbors or a broken air conditioner just as a long day at the beach can be turned into absolute relaxation and serenity with a hot, pressurized shower, pillow topped mattress and an undisturbed night to gaze under the stars. I am delighted to say that our stay at Sandalfoot 3D1 was entirely the latter. We arrived after the scheduled check-in, no problem at all, and promptly unpacked and relaxed. The condo is well lit, open, splendidly furnished and accompanied with a variety of books, films, games and quite possible the most impressive lineup of kitchen utensils and appliances I have ever seen. Being on the ground level, we had supreme access to the beach without having to carry chairs and coolers through flights of stairs. The condominium amenities included several propane grills, a large and clean pool, accompanied with many chairs and umbrellas, a well maintained tennis court, and a sturdy boardwalk with a sink and hose for rinsing off shells and sandy feet. The location on Gulf Drive is close to all the shops and eateries, without being on a busy stretch of road. Pinocchio's famous ice cream is just a minute down the road and lighthouse is an easy walk along the shore. The beach is very clean and uncrowded. The shelling is second to none and the breeze was constant, creating a tranquil setting against the hot sun. We were extremely happy and comfortable during our stay. Sandalfoot is classy and in excellent repair and our condo at 3D1 was the perfect place to call home. Sanibel Island is truly a paradise, with much variety and a mellow, mature atmosphere. We had an amazing time and expect to be back soon!

Response from the owner So happy to hear you enjoyed your vacation. We'd love to have you back anytime!

“Beautiful location and a memorable getaway!”

Reviewed 2 Apr 2013

This was my first time staying at Sandalfoot Condominium on Sanibel Island and I absolutely loved it! Sanibel Island is a beautiful getaway and the Sandalfoot condo was a perfect place to stay at. The unit 3D1 was nicely furnished and decorated and provided a great layout with comfortable seating and beds. The unit has a very open kitchen and dining area which made it ideal for cooking meals each day. The location of 3D1 is extremely convenient and offered many benefits during my stay. Not only is it located on the ground floor, meaning no stairs to walk up and down, but it is also an end unit on the quiet end of the property which made my stay even more peaceful and relaxing. Additionally, the unit location offers quick and easy access to the shuffleboard court, tennis court, grills for grilling out, and the condo's heated pool. The beach is a short scenic walk from 3D1 and is an extremely serene and calming environment. I thoroughly enjoyed relaxing in the sun and spending time on the beach each day during my stay. The ocean is refreshing and the many fascinating shells that you can find on the beach are great for collecting and bringing home with you as a souvenir. During my stay I was able to explore the various nearby shops and excellent restaurants to dine at on the Island. In addition, the Sanibel community is incredibly welcoming and positively contributed to my overall stay. I had such an incredible experience vacationing in Sanibel Island and this condo was the perfect place to stay at to enjoy all that the Island has to offer!

Response from the owner I'm so happy to hear you loved Sanibel and our condo! We would love to have you back again.

“Perfect Condo on a Beauiful Island!”

Reviewed 29 Mar 2013

I absolutely loved my stay in this condo (Unit3D1) and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place to have their perfect beach vacation. It truly made my stay on Sanibel Island a trip I will never forget! The condo was immaculate when we arrived and is beautifully decorated. It is just the right size and has a really open layout with a big, well-equipped kitchen and nice dining area and living room. The screened-in lanai right off the living room was a great place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or a quiet evening. We were able to live comfortably with a group of six very easily. All of the beds, including the pull out couches, had nice mattresses that provided all of us with a great night sleep every night. The windows let in a lot of sunlight so the whole condo was naturally lit during the day and we could enjoy the island view from inside. We could even watch an osprey nest from the kitchen window! The condominium as a whole is an amazing place, and I believe this unit has one of the best locations in Sandalfoot. It is an end unit on the quiet side of the condominium and located on the first level, so the courtyard was only a step away. Right outside we had immediate access to the shuffleboard court, tennis court, grill and the heated pool. We found some of the most beautiful shells I have ever seen right on the beach outside of the courtyard! I had such an amazing time exploring this beautiful place. Sanibel Island is a perfect tropical paradise and this condo really did add so much to my memorable experience!

Response from the owner Thank you so much for the positive feedback! We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at our condo and welcome you back anytime.

“Ideal for all ages”

Reviewed 16 Aug 2012

We discovered Sandalfoot four years ago after having stayed at another (larger, very upscale) resort closeby. We loved the other place, but once we found Sandalfoot, we never looked back. The scale, layout, and ambience are perfect, especially for families with young children or older parents who prefer a shorter walk to the pool or beach. We have gone every year with three generations(ages 1-75), and Sandalfoot meets everyone's needs. The property is immaculate and well kept, and the staff are always helpful and responsive(four years later, it's like a family reunion when we arrive at the front office -- the candy dish is filled and waiting for our youngest child!)There is very much a family feel, partly because there are so many returning families(we have friends from repeat visits), and also because of the little extras, like the weekly breakfast buffet by the pool, April Fools Day bbq, Easter celebration, etc.The place is just the right size, not so small as to feel dinky, and not so large as to feel overwhelming or anonymous. The access to the pool and beach is one of the best aspects of Sandalfoot. It is contained and safe enough even for young children to walk to and from by themselves, which makes for a more relaxing vacation. This is also an advantage of a ground floor unit -- children can go right out to play. And it makes grilling, which we did nightly for dinner, especially easy. We have stayed in Unit 3D1 multiple times and always found it perfect. The open layout makes it feel breezy and spacious. It is nicely decorated, and recently updated with new living and dining furniture. The modern, well-equipped kitchen had everything we needed to cook nightly for our family of 5, plus grandparents and an aunt staying in a different unit. There are beach chairs and an umbrella, and a newly purchased beach cart. We have never been disappointed or unpleasantly surprised by anything at Sandalfoot. It is consistently well managed and maintained.

Response from the owner Thanks for taking the time to write such a nice review. I must say that I agree with all your comments. Such a lovely place--paradise!

I loved my week at Sandalfoot! This first-floor unit made it easy to walk out to the beach or pool. The condo is clean and comfortable. The updated kitchen is nice for cooking and eating in. The grounds are well-maintained with many flowering plants. The complex is just the right size; it never felt crowded in the common areas. Being on the eastern side of the island made it a convenient drive to the mainland and close to many island attractions.

Response from the owner Thanks for your review-so glad you loved it. Hope you can make it back again soon!

“Perfect Location and Condo!”

Reviewed 25 Jul 2012

This is our first stay on Sanibel itself, although we have visited the island a number of times in the past and enjoyed its tranquility, long expanses of uncrowded beach and warm gulf water, not to mention the world's best shell hunting! This Sandalfoot condo is situated on the gulf side of the island with the best views and best beaches in our opinion. We were overjoyed to find this place. The condo itself is on the ground floor. We parked the car 10 feet from the front door which made loading and unloading a snap. The master bedroom has a king bed, which not very common, and its own private, full bath with upscale tile and fixtures. The second bedroom has 2 twin beds and its own full bath. There were 5 in our group and we used the full size sleeper sofa which was also surprisingly comfortable. The condo was exceptionally clean and well-maintained. Walking out the screened Lanai, it is 20 feet to the large clean pool, then another 100 feet on a private walk to the ocean. The condo was fully equipped with flat screen TVs in the bedrooms and living room, DVD and VCR players, full kitchen nicely stocked with all cooking and dining utensils and appliances. There is even a nice selection of Dvds, board games and books (although we spent most of our time in the pool or at the beach). Beach chairs, umbrella, shelling supplies, beach towels, etc. are all supplied. The condo office was very friendly and had a nice supply of bicycles for rent ($15/day) for use on the miles of secluded, paved bike trails on the island. All in all, we had a perfect time and will definitely rent this condo again.

Response from the owner We are so pleased you loved our condo. We love it too! We'd be thrilled to have you back anytime.

“Paradise awaits!”

Reviewed 8 Jun 2012

A perfect paradise awaits our family each and every time we stay at Sandalfoot Condominiums, and this time was no exception. However, we truly found our perfect piece of paradise during our stay this year (May 2012) in Sandalfoot Condo (3D1)! This two bedroom unit was very spacious for our family of four, and sparkling clean! Furthermore, we loved having the pool, shuffleboards, tennis courts, beautiful flowers and landscaping and bike racks right out the door of the lanai. And, being on the 1st floor is always a plus for a family with children. I have vacationed at Sandalfoot since I was a child, and stayed in many units growing up with my parents and now with my own family. But truly, 3D1 is a unit that I will always ask for each year from now on. Sanibel is Heaven on Earth in every since of the word, and perfect accomodations found at Sandalfoot (particularly this unit) is reason #1!!

Response from the owner Thank you so much for your positive review. It truly is a little piece of Heaven on Earth!!!
