Sanibel Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Sundial B307, my 1-bedroom condo at the Sundial on Sanibel Island has direct Gulf of Mexico views. Newly remodeled and professionally decorated with all new furnishings and artwork in 2011. Rent owner direct and save over adjoining Sundial Resort rates. Our condo has a direct oceanview (only a few steps to the beach), large screened lanai with sliding glass doors that open to the full width of the condo to allow for sea breezes and sounds of the surf. The condo is equipped with full kitchen: (refrigerator, range, dishwasher, disposal, microwave, coffeemaker, coffee grinder, electric juicer, blender, toaster, wine chiller and much more than you usually find in rentals). Sundial B307 offers a completely separate bedroom (not folding doors), washer/dryer, ceramic tile flooring, crown molding, and corian/granite countertops and more upgrades.

To make you feel at home, we have a washer/dryer in unit, ceiling fans as well as air conditioning, hair dryer in bath, two cable TVs--2 flat screen TV's, DVD with small library, stereo, binoculars, wooden high chair, beach towels, beach chairs, umbrella, beach toys, and two bicycles on loan. Free wireless internet, too.

Pamper yourself on vacation and don't settle for a discounted unit with outdated decor or no view. This is the best of both worlds. . .deal directly with the owner with the safety of the Sanibel property manager that handles accounting, key pick-up and emergency maintenance issues. See also 2-bedroom condos Sundial B306 or Sundial F401 and Maui Kaanapali Villa 146. If calendar shows open, then I either have this condo or a similar condo available. Typically I book weekly Sat. to Sat.

About Candy Harris

Candy Harris from Rochester Hills, Michigan. Candy is a realtor with Real Estate One in Michigan and also a Board member at Sundial of Sanibel. My son Ryan of Birmingham, Michigan also loves Sanibel and enjoys vacationing here.

Candy Harris purchased this condo in 2001

Why Candy Harris chose Sanibel Island

We first vacationed at the Sundial in 1990. It quickly became our family's favorite vacation destination. We took the plunge 4 years later and bought Sundial G106. Since then we have bought and sold several condos to get closer to the Gulf of Mexico. Thanks to Hurricane Charley in 2004, our condo was completely remodeled. At that time, we added upgrades to the unit--ceramic tile floor, crown molding, sliding glass doors that open the full width of the condo and removed the accordian door and made the bedroom separate. In 2013 we remodeled bath to add a step in shower. We also own F401 and B306 (next door), both 2-bedroom/2 bath condos at the Sundial.

This is a popular condo and any cash flow I have goes back into updating and refurnishing the unit.

What makes this condo unique

The beach, the beach, the beach. When we first vacationed on Sanibel, my then 6-year old son was up before dawn looking for shell 'treasures' on the beach. It was a magical place for our family. It's so relaxing. The big decision for the day is where to go for dinner. Over 40 restaurants to chose from, but no McDonald's, traffic lights, or high rises. Ellen Creager, travel writer for the Detroit News stayed in B307 when writing a feature on Sanibel. Sanibel Island was named by famed travel writer Arthur Frommer as his #1 favorite place in the world (over Paris, Bali, NY, etc)

October at the beach

Our first fall adventure at the beach was great - sunshine and warm waters and LOTS
of SHELLS on the beach. The condo was well equipped and very comfortable. It was a joy
to work with Candy! TKs

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.

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.
