Sanibel Island Condo Rental Photos and Description
2BR fully equipped condo Vacation Rental Sanibel, Florida USA
Sanibel Island is the ideal vacation destination for those wishing to discover one of the last tropical islands in the United States. Sanibel is a lush island, famous for its shelling. And it's a laid-back community of people who all share the common goal of preserving the island's natural environment.
This condo complex offers charming amenities -- plus tennis, shuffleboard, a heated swimming pool,bikes and across the road from the beautiful Gulf waters. Outdoor recreation is one of our prime attractions and choices abound including golfing, sailing, fishing, diving, and bicycling and hiking -- with more than 23 miles of trails. There are also local cruises.
After a busy day of activities, return to your private condominium unit, watch the ospreys nest and relax on our lanai or start a barbecue at the pool patio.
Great Location...3 min walk to beach...: The only problem you'll face is that you may not want to leave!
My beautiful two-bedroom/two-bath, completely furnished condo offers a fully-equipped kitchen which includes a refrigerator/ice maker, a dishwasher, garbage disposal, a self-cleaning oven, and a microwave oven. There is also a separate dining area.
The master bedroom suite has NEW furniture ( July 2013) a queen-size bed, tv and its own bathroom. The second bedroom has two twin beds and its own bathroom. The living room has a queen-size sleeper, NEW cable TV, a DVD, and sliding glass doors opening to the screened lanai with bird's eye view of the nesting ospreys. New tile flooring in LR-DR-Kit-bath ! WIFI is here. Read your email from our condo. New laminate flooring in the two BRs...clean and pretty.
Amenities include central cooling/heat, laundry facilities and outdoor grills are on the premises. Heated pool, newly re-surfaced tennis courts, bikes for rent on site.
Sanibel is shaped like a boomerang, and is approximately 11 miles long and two miles wide at its widest point. Our condo is conveniently located in the center of everything and across the street from the Gulf and beach. We are a 5 min bike ride to the Bailey Nature Preserve with bike trails, a 10 min bike ride to the grocery store, movie theater. Want to go for a boat ride ( canoes, kayaks avail too ) via the Ding Darling Refuge Marina, it is only a 5 min car ride or 15 min bike ride. I like our location because when it is time to decide which end of the island to visit .... we are in the middle and it is easy to go either way. If you just want to stay close to home, there are lots of restaurants nearby, Traditions is a walk away, Doc Fords, Thistle Lodge...and more. We also love our beach because it is so peaceful...bring your sneakers and join the parade of walkers up and down the beach in the am. Sunsets are glorious too.
The 'Ding Darling' National Wildlife Refuge makes up approximately 50% of the island. A five-plus mile nature trail running through the Wildlife Refuge is truly outstanding. Try to see it early in the morning or late in the afternoon when the birds are returning to the estuary.
Captiva Island is connected to Sanibel, and is about six miles long and very narrow. Fun to visit the outdoor restaurants with music. Keylime Bistro, Mucky Duck....kid friendly.
Whether you want to watch the sun rise while having breakfast on our screened lanai, or walk the beach and collect shells -- or fall asleep to a cool breeze, my Sunrise/Sunset Condo will be a wonderful home base for your vacation. Sanibel is like no other place for a family vacation or a romantic getaway.

My family purchased our get-away vacation home in 1997 ! We have spent a few weeks there every year and enjoyed every minute! My son loves the fishing from our beach, I love the bike trails & nearby marina for renting a kayak. My husband just loves watching the nesting ospreys from our lanai, their nest is just across from our porch. All in all, it is our little slice of heaven. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Why Maria chose Sanibel Island
We chose to buy this particular condo because we REALLY wanted to find a place on Sanibel Island. It is so laid back, no billboards, no high rise buildings. Over half of the Island is a preserve - it is just paradise.
What makes this condo unique
We chose this particular condo because it is an end unit with no shared walls. We also have no one above us....which makes for a very peaceful place !
