Sanibel Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4 Total) 7 Night Minimum

We can only accommodate up to 4 Guests total.

If you are looking for luxurious, relaxing, serene, and tranquil accommodations - this is the perfect place for you!

Let us know if you would like the link to our new 2014 website with a lot more photos and helpful information.

We are diligent about keeping everything in the condo and beach closet in top shape to meet and exceed the high expectations of our vacationing guests.

Drift off to sleep in a King size luxury double pillow-top bed with your head on Ritz Carlton pillows to the sound of nearby waves on the beach... after another perfect day enjoying Sanibel.

Our Availability Calendar is always current and up-to-date. (Saturday to Saturday 7 Night Minimum)

Everything is fresh, clean, and new...including the furniture, linens, electronics, kitchen supplies, and ceramic tile floors throughout. The bathrooms and closets are modern and well organized.

The romantic master bedroom has a full wall of glass, leading out to the lanai. If you keep your bathroom door open, you can even see the ocean from your shower! The electronics and appliances are top-notch.

Sanibel Surfside is also a SMOKE-FREE environment. The Condo's association by-laws do not allow any type of smoking (ie. cigarettes, pipes or cigars) on the lanai balcony, inside the condos, or anywhere near the pool. You can enjoy the fresh smell of the ocean breeze. IF YOU ARE A SMOKER YOU WILL PREFER A DIFFERENT CONDO COMPLEX THAN SANIBEL SURFSIDE DUE TO THE STRICT NO-SMOKING RULES AT SANIBEL SURFSIDE.

This is our only vacation place and we come several times a year to work on making sure it is perfect for our guests.

If you want to check your e-mail, or surf the internet, we have upgraded to provide private (just our condo) reliable wireless high-speed internet (10+ Mbps) with secure access for your laptop/netbook/IPAD/IPHONE so that you can use your Wi-Fi device on the 23 foot lanai balcony that has direct and side views of the ocean and beach. We are tech-savvy and realize the importance of reliable, fast, and secure Wi-Fi and make sure that you have that for your devices too. No one else shares our WIFI signal which keeps it faster and secure for you. Log In information and passcode are provided inside our condo.

Shell collectors will love long walks on the Sanibel Island beach that is famous for the incredible variety and quantity of sea shells! Sanibel Island has been named as one of the top shelling beaches in Travel & Leisure magazine. Sanibel has also been featured on the Travel Channel, CBS Morning Show, and included in the '1,000 Places to See Before You Die' book. Arthur Frommer listed Sanibel as his #1 favorite place IN THE WORLD!

This well-equipped condo includes special extra touches because we want you to have what you need for a fantastic vacation. Enjoy our high quality plush thick deep cushions lanai furniture (perfect for a nap!). There is also a washer and dryer in the condo. Ceiling fans were installed in both bedrooms and lanai. If you love to cook you'll be delighted with the extensive high quality kitchen supplies. If you would rather leave the cooking to someone else, there are over 40 delicious restaurants on Sanibel. After dinner we have over 110 different movies from which you can choose to watch. Or you can watch dolphins and birds with the 3 pairs of binoculars we provide in the condo.

Sanibel Surfside only has 38 units, providing a calm and peaceful ambiance for your vacation. Most of the Sanibel Surfside owners are residents. They are very friendly and welcoming to our guests. Children are welcome, but please do not bring their colorful markers to protect the expensive fine furnishings. The entire family can rent bikes (which can be delivered to you) and enjoy the bike friendly paths of Sanibel. We've also provided a variety of children and teenager movies in our movie library to give the adults some quiet time to enjoy the lanai views and sounds.

For your convenience we have a fantastic beach closet (located on ground floor covered parking area) full of beach chairs, beach umbrellas, pool/beach toys, coolers, beginner's tennis rackets, some fishing bait gear, etc... for you to borrow during your vacation. So pack light, and enjoy our many extra amenities!

Do you enjoy golf, tennis, or shuffleboard? There are 2 golf courses nearby, 2 tennis courts behind the pool area for Sanibel Surfside guests only. With only 38 units in this quaint peaceful complex, it is easy to find an available court or chair at the pool. There are no tennis court or shuffleboard fees.

There is a beautiful, uncrowded, clean, refreshing heated pool! All brand new beautiful pool-side furniture as of March 2014.

Sanibel Surfside was constructed before restrictions went into effect regarding how close a building could be to the ocean. Thus, our condo is one of the closest to the water. This is why you can enjoy hard-to-find unobstructed views down the coast line as well as directly out to the water.

We use the assistance of a local helpful & friendly rental property management company for many reasons. You can easily check-in to obtain your keys regardless of how late you might arrive on Sanibel (they are very close to the condo). Also, they will quickly respond 24 hours a day if you are locked out, misplace your keys, or any other urgent matter. Their professional office will handle any paperwork and safely/securely collect your deposit & rental payments. They can also help you with any requests you may have while staying in our condo. The rental management company has a complimentary computer and printer available to you in their large, beautiful lobby, if you need to print a boarding pass or an important e-mail. Their services help us to provide excellent customer service to our guests so that you may have a first-rate, relaxing, and worry-free First Class vacation.

To show our appreciation for finding us on the internet...If you decide to be our guest we will instruct our rental property management company to subtract $35 from your rent to make up for their $35 booking fee.

Rental periods are always Saturday to Saturday (with Check-In at 3pm and Check-Out at 10am). Our condo association regulations do not allow guest reservations for less than 7 nights. Sanibel is such a fantastic island that you will be glad you stayed at least a week! We can confirm reservations up to 52 weeks in advance.

Please don't hesitate to contact us and we will send you our new website address link to view more photos & details.

Hopefully Sanibel will become an annual tradition to include in your travel plans. :)

We welcome you to this bit of fantasy on the beach and look forward to sharing our sensational vacation home with you.

Guestbook comments from the owner
"Your condo is absolutely wonderful. We were very comfortable and appreciated every aspect of your place. Beautiful location coupled with your awesome decor, amenities, and organization/labeling was incredibly helpful. I really can't say enough how nice your place is. Simply beautiful.



You and your husband have done a great job anticipating guest's needs and comfort. We rent a lot of vacation spots - from skiing in the mountains, shore homes, even trackside stays and your condo is far and above the best place we've seen. You have thought of every single detail."

Visiting Sanibel was always our favorite destination. This is not just a rental property to us, it is our tenderly cared for home-away-from-home. It is a pleasure to spoil our guests with the best views, service, amenities, and cleanliness. We hope some day to be able to live in this wonderful condo. Currently we live in St. Louis, Missouri and enjoy providing excellent hospitality to all our guests.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2008

We selected this Sanibel condo after several years of patiently searching for 'the perfect condo' on the 'perfect beach'.

This large lanai was the closest to the ocean. The views and sounds were irresistible! The inside of the condo is equally beautiful.

We were also attracted to the quiet and small size of Sanibel Surfside.

We both love to play tennis at Sanibel Surfside and Mike is thrilled to be so close to the golf courses.

Our condo is unique because it was completely gutted and remodeled right before we purchased it in 2008.

There are many extra special touches for our guests.

The lanai's plush thick cushions are one of our guest's favorite amenities....along with the high-speed wireless internet and 100+ movies. The lanai also has outer sliding glass doors which is rare - if it does rain you can still relax on the lanai and stay dry!

Sanibel Surfside's unique master bedrooms have an entire wall of sliding glass doors to watch the ocean while resting in bed.

All the furniture and bedding are new, fresh, updated, and clean.

Our goal is first-class service so that you will want to return or recommend us to your friends.

We have experience staying at individually owned properties on our own vacations and know what 'extras' we hope to find in the condo.

Our goal is to exceed your expectations!

EXACTLY AS PROMISED!!!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I just returned home from our week long vacation. This condo delivered on every level. The views were glorious. The condo itself was very clean and had everything you could ask for. The Wi-Fi worked great. Loved sitting on the lanai under the ceiling fans enjoying the view and listening to the waves. You are so close to the beach. We saw dolphins on several different days. We also collected some very nice shells from the beach. Looking forward to returning again in the future.

Thanks again for sharing your condo with us.

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT VACATION SPOT!

  • 5 of 5
We just came back from a week in this wonderful condo. It was our first time to Sanibel and we absolutely loved every minute. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. This apartment was so well organized and well equipped (same for the beach closet). Not a single detail was overlooked. We felt right at home from the moment we walked in. Darlene and Mike could not have been more helpful!!! The location of this complex is great, very close to where the action is. We had rental bikes delivered and used them to get around for most of the week. I wish we could give this 6 stars! We highly recommend this place and will definitely come again. Thanks again, Darlene and Mike!

EXACTLY WHAT WE HOPED FOR

  • 5 of 5
This unit and this vacation was exactly what my family needed. It was an amazing trip and a wonderful respite from hectic day-to-day life. The owners were amazing with their suggestions and have truly thought of everything, plus a little more. This unit was the best appointed and organized unit I have really ever seen.
The beach was awesome, and we had a great time relaxing, fishing, and enjoying our week in paradise. We're already talking about our next trip!

RETURNED FOR ANOTHER PERFECT STAY

  • 5 of 5
This was my family's second visit to this unit and it felt like we were returning to "our" second home! The location, cleanliness, and amenities are top-notch. The owners are extremely friendly and have provided everything you could possibly need. On this visit, we cooked more in-condo and easily found everything from the right-sized pots and pans to plates, measuring cups, and grilling tools. We enjoyed the pool, beach and tennis courts during the day and spent evenings in the condo enjoying the direct gulf view, the wi-fi, the comfortable furnishings... and nightly games of charades. Darlene and Mike have made this a wonderful oasis for us and we hope to return! You won't find a nicer place to rent than this!

THIS IS THE BEST PLACE FOR YOU!

  • 5 of 5
If you're looking for the best place to stay on Sanibel Island, look no further! Our family of four has stayed in several different condos on Sanibel and this one exceeds all the others in all categories. The owners have spent a lot of time and money getting this condo to be the perfect getaway for two to six people. Everything you need for the beach is neatly stored in the locked storage closet next to your parking place. The pool is heated and wonderful to relax by. The view and ambiance of the full lanai is a wonderful place to have morning coffee, a snack, lunch, or just sitting and reading. You can see all the way down the coast to Naples! The beach is literally 20 steps from the elevator. The bike trails are at the end of the driveway and the Donax Street location puts you in the middle of all the action on Sanibel. I can't emphasize enough how much you'll enjoy choosing this condo to stay in. Our family was totally relaxed by the end of the first day we stayed there. Read the journal they have in the condo to see the great remarks that all dwellers said. Highly recommend....five stars out of five!

PERFECT VACATION STAY

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five stayed in this beautiful condo during Christmas break. The condo was fully stocked with high quality amenities. The decor is tasteful and the beds were extraordinarily comfortable. We enjoyed the large master bath with double sinks and walk in closet. The flat screen TVs, ipod docking station and wi-fi were wonderful, and we couldn't get enough of the breathtaking, expansive view of the gulf from the living room AND the master bedroom. We're neat freaks and the condo was perfectly clean. The pool was steps away and very, very warm. We also enjoyed the beach chairs and beach accessories. I could go on and on about how wonderful this condo was. I've visited Sanibel often and cannot imagine a nicer place to stay on the island. I just hope we can return soon... and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else!
One last note, the owners were very helpful and friendly. I emailed frequently prior to our trip and was always provided with timely, accurate and thorough information. They went out of their way to ensure our stay would be stellar.
