BEACH CONDO, UPDATED, VIEWS

Sanibel Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

1-Bedroom (sleeps 4)

This is a perfect vacation spot for a small family, a couple, honeymooners or an individual -- right on the Gulf of Mexico, at the Sundial . Rent from the owner direct and save. Condo is newly remodeled in 2005 and refurnished again in 2011.

The fully-equipped kitchen and large screened lanai with a Gulf view offers luxury at an affordable rate--less than booking through the adjoining Sundial Beach Resort & Spa. You also get to select your exact condo unlike booking through the Sundial Resort. Other extras are washer/dryer, ceiling fans as well as AC, 40' Wall Swivel Wall Mounted TV in living room and flat screen in bedroom, DVD, stereo, free wireless Internet, high chair, hair dryer in bath, wine chiller, beach chairs, beach towels, and two bicycles on loan. Also see our other 2-bedrooms at the Sundial.

Our Sundial condo offers 1/2 mile of uncrowded beach, 4 swimming pools, free wireless Internet, BBQ grills and more. Membership to adjoining resort property available for fee.

Our Tropical Islands: Sanibel & Captiva Islands Florida are the perfect choice for your vacation whether you are looking for a romantic getaway, a family trip or a nature vacation.

Sanibel & Captiva are in the heart of Southwest Florida with over 15 miles of beautiful Florida shelling beaches. We invite you to explore our accommodations for your vacation or learn more about the many attractions on the islands including our Florida wildlife, seashells, Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge and many outdoor activities – biking, fishing, bird watching, boating, golfing, and snorkeling just to name a few. Sanibel & Captiva also feature a broad range of cultural offerings in the area of the Arts, Theater, and Music.

Our islands offer dozens of quaint shopping and dining experiences and if our romantic sunsets get you in the mood to “tie the knot,” we have folks to help you plan the perfect “tropical” wedding. 15 miles of beach, 25 miles of bike paths, 0 traffic lights. Paradise without a passport.

Detail of Our Condo: Compliments of Hurricane Charley in 2004, we had the opportunity to recompletely remodel our already nice 1-bedroom condo. We installed telescopic sliding doors so that complete width can be opened. Our ceramic tile flooring, crown molding, corian & granite countertops were architectual details that we added to make our condo stand out. Our condo also was altered to have a completely separate bedroom (not accordian doors as some condo have) with sliding pocket doors.

Our recent additions in the last year are a large wall mounted flat screen TV in living room, new vanity in bathroom, new refrigerator with icemaker, new bedroom carpeting, all new furnishings in 2011, and a step-in shower in 2013..

We do our best to provide everything that is required to make you feel at home.

My primary residence is Rochester Hills, Michigan. I am fortunate enough to be able to spend several months a year in Sanibel, my favorite place since retiring from teaching at Lake Orion High School. I currently am a realtor for Real Estate One in Michigan and also book vacation rentals not only for my own 4 condos, but approx. 600 other properties on Sanibel & Captiva

Candy Harris purchased this condo in 2001

We first visited Sanibel in 1990 with my then 6-year son and stayed at the Sundial. He was so fascinated with the shells on the beach that he and his dad got up before dawn to search for 'treasures.' We continued coming to Sanibel for 3 more years and made the plunge to buy our own piece of paradise. Since that time, we have bought/sold 7 properties on Sanibel & Captiva. I now own 3 Sundial condos and a condo on Maui. c My son Ryan is now married and he and his wife Lisa also love coming to the Sundial.

Travel writer for the Detroit News Ellen Creager rented our condo and wrote an article on Sanibel.

This condo is unique as it has such a great view and is at the quiet end of the complex. It has been completely updated with tile flooring, crown molding, solid surface countertops, flat screen TV's. I do must best to furnish as much as I can to make your stay perfect--beach towels, beach chairs, umbrella, bikes.

BEST VACATION EVER!

  • 5 of 5
Our trip was the best. Candy was so helpful and patient with all my emails and questions. The condo was perfect. It had everything we needed and was the best location. Close to the beach and the weather was hot and sunny during the day. It did rain at night with some thunderstorms but it added to the experience. We sat on the balcony and watched the sky light up. It was beautiful. We tried to rebook it for a few months later but it was already booked. You need to move fast to get this gem. Candy made our trip to Sanibel easy and memorable. Thanks Candy, we will be back!

A LITTLE PIECE OF PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in this condo for three weeks this year. We have chosen this condo for the last several years. The condo is nicely decorated, as comfortable as home and well equipped with everything you need for a wonderful vacation.
The owner is always available to answer any questions. She has equipped the condo with everything you need including even small items such as a flashlight, extra light bulbs and a pair of binoculars.
The view is beautiful. It is relaxing to sit on the lanai and watch and listen to the waves and birds. The brown pelicans fly right over the building at the end of every day heading to their roosting spot inland. And a stroll onto the beach near sunset will reward you with views that change by the minute, every evening, day after day!
I would definitely recommend this condo for a beautiful destination.

LOVELY CONDO ON THE BEACH

  • 5 of 5
This condo is adorable, clean, very comfortable and well-equipped. The screened-in balcony was a delight. The beach is literally just a few steps from the steps or elevator door. Contrary to the photos, the pool is not part of the rental price, but with the beach so near, who cares? We enjoyed the Ding Darling Nat'l Wildlife Refuge immensely. The condo has a pair of binoculars, but I advise bringing your own if you have. You do not need to bring beach towels, as mentioned in Royal Shell literature. There are plenty of decent restaurants nearby with the island flair. Doc Ford's was good and the fried oysters at Lazy Flamingo are to die for. We also enjoyed Sweet Melissa's, which is more of a conventional restaurant with a sophisticated menu. We enjoyed visiting Bowman's Beach and Lighthouse Beach as well. Although there is a pull-out sofa in the living room, this property is most suited for a couple.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your nice review. The pool in the photo is most certainly part of the rental--sorry if you didn't understand that was your pool. I think you must be confusing use of the adjoining property pool which is restricted to only their guests or paying a fee.

SATISFIED GUESTS

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I will definitely come back to Sanibel Island. Hopefully, we will get the same condo, (B307). It was well-kept AND well-equipped.....All the comforts of home and more! It was nice having a view of the ocean from the living room and the bedroom. I will be recommending this place to my sister when they travel to Florida in February.

Enjoyed the apartment very much, with bikes a lovely bonus, which we used every day. Have stayed before at Sundial, witha garden view, and so the partial sea view was nice, however, we did expect to be right on the beach, and not across car park and grounds, so slightly disappointed here. But if you hadn't been before, then the view would be fantastic. Generally Sanibel was quiet, being October, and everything was to our expectation. Would recommend to anyone thinking of visiting to stay here, as the apartment had everything you could possibly need for a good holiday.

Owner's Response: Since the 70's both federal and state regulations determine how close to the beach buildings can be constructed (to protect the structures, the environment, and beach erosion). There are several buildings on Sanibel that were grandfathered in and do exist in front of the coastal setback line. My condo is as close to the beach as is currently permitted. All of the photos were taken from the condo with the exception of the dolphin shot. Thanks for your comments.

VERY RELAXING

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just spent a week in this condo while celebrating our 30th anniversary. The condo is exactly as described. It is very well maintained and clean. We were able to relax and make ourselves at home. The beach is just steps away. We used the beach chairs, umbrella and small ice chest. Shopping and restaurants are a short drive or long bicycle ride away. We didn't ride the bicycles because of the higher temps while we were there, but I can imagine riding them everywhere when the weather is cooler. I can't think of anything we needed that wasn't available in the condo. When we weren't on the beach or out exploring the island, we were very comfortable lounging around the condo or sitting on the balcony listening to the ocean. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. A very relaxing week!!
