The Owner purchased this condo in 2004

We fell in love with Sanibel Island and purchased this beach front condo right after Hurricane Charley in 2004. We spent months putting this condo back together and have constantly upgraded since to ensure you enjoy the best beach views on the Island and have the vacation of lifetime in well maintained condo.

Barb Kowalski

The shelling is the best in Florida, watching the sunrise and sunsets, wildlife everywhere on an island that is 70% a nature preserve is what brings us back again and again. Then there are the bike rides and long romantic walks on one the best beaches in the world. The nightlife, restaurants and relaxing environment regenerate us. Talk to Caesar the parrot at entrance of Jerry’s grocery store. We cant do that in Chicago.

I just loved the view from the balcony/lanai. We spent most of our time out there whenever we were in the condo. The kitchen was great and the whole place was very clean. The walk in shower was our choice and the best shower. Only problem was the dining room chairs need new support - sink in middle. Enjoyed all the toys and chairs in the closet downstairs. Pool was great and very clean. Parking excellent. We would definitely come again if it was just us two. Probably too small for our extended families.

Owner's Response: That gorgeous direct Ocean view is what we feel in love with when we bought the unit! We enjoy hearing from our guest and are very happy you enjoyed your stay! The Tommy Bahama dining room chairs have a large base. We will have them looked at to see what can be done to make them more comfortable.
The downstairs closet, we made a decision to have this “fun” closet for our guest to use those beach items with their stay an added bonus.
We look forward to welcoming you to our condo again. We love returning guest. Thank you for your feedback.

We recently brought our 3 children (12, 6, and 2) to the peaceful escape of Sanibel. I spoke with Barb and Bill both about the condo and the close vicinity to the beach, as we did not want to have to drag three kids and a lot of beach gear very far. They weren't kidding when they said this was as close to the beach as you can get! It was so easy to grab supplies from the owner's closet and head to the beach. The closet had umbrellas, beach chairs, sand toys, pool noodles, and lots of other things. In fact, we left 2 big inflatable tubes and an inflatable mat...we are planning on returning! The condo has tons of storage. Both rooms have large closets, plus there a couple of other linen closets. It was wonderful having a washer and dryer, too! Although the kitchen had plenty of cooking supplies, it would have been nice to have a couple of larger nonstick skillets to use. Also, it would be great to have some flat screen TVs. Other than that, the condo was just perfect and beautiful and we fully intend on coming back whether or not anything is changed :)

There were a couple of maintenance issues while we were there...problems with the air conditioner and some light bulbs out...and Royal Shell was right on top of the issues. The air conditioner was temporarily fixed within the first hour or two that we called, and Royal shell brought 2 brand new fans to the condo for us to use just in case the air conditioning wasn't holding up until it could be permanently fixed. They were very nice to work with. Check in and check out were very smooth and easy.

We ate out a lot as it really isn't vacation for us if we have to cook and clean up after every meal. Restaurants on the island, as expected, aren't cheap, so it was about $75-$100 per meal for our family of 5. However, we also ate seafood each time we went out so that is well worth the money! We LOVED the Sanibel Fish House and ate there twice. They have awesome bacon wrapped scallops and crunchy grouper! We also loved The Timbers and The Island Cow. The Bubble Room was neat, but even the kids' meals were expensive. Honestly, we didn't think it was worth the money. For dessert, we went to Pinocchio's almost every night...well worth the calories and money! Jerry's and Bailey's General Store both had awesome fresh donuts! The kids LOVED getting donuts both places.

Bill and Barb were great to work with and we are trying to figure out now when we will book for next year!

Owner's Response: Michelle,
It is great to hear your response and that you are excited to come back in the future! Just let us know and we are willing to assist you in the process. Isn't that an awesome view and so convenient to the beach. Regarding the AC, we have things in place in the unforeseen event that something needs repairs or assistance during your stay. Royal shell was there to assist you, and we have a maintenance agreement on a relatively new AC, who would have known. I am glad they were able to resolve the issue. Thank you that you saw the kitchen was nicely stocked. The housewares required list is very basic, and I have added numerous items above that list. They require a basic pot and pan set, with 2 fry pans. I tweak my own list with my guest request/suggestions.
Each year we take the unit for a week off the rental program for maintenance, this year it is in November 18th when we are planning to paint, deal with flat screen TV(s), and review housewares. In addition royal shell yearly does a deep clean (inventories housewares), in addition to the cleaning and checks between guest.
We are also available via phone in addition to Royal Shell being there for our guest on Sanibel.
Thank you for your 5 star recommendation and honest suggestions. We do respond to suggestions and take pride in the our beautiful, inviting décor with that breathtaking view.
Let me know when you want to return.
Thank you again,
Barb

My husband and I along with our four children recently spent two weeks at this amazing condo at Sanibel Surfside. I can't even put into words what a perfect vacation this was. The condo was beautiful - I know that pictures can be deceiving and sometimes what you see isn't exactly what you get. In this case the pictures don't do it justice - it is even more beautiful and even closer to the beach. Multiple times I found myself dazing off in the kitchen with preparing lunch or cleaning up after the kids because the view was so spectacular.

The island itself is perfect. There is something about the speed of island life that everyone should experience. My husband and I loved that there were so few chain stores and restaurants and had so much fun trying out many unique places. Our favorites were Island Cow, Mucky Duck, Bubble Room for dessert, and Pinocchio's for ice cream. We loved going to Jerry's for cheap desserts - they have a great bakery!

Barb and Bill were easy to deal with and answered all questions that we had. We can't thank them enough for sharing their condo with us and giving us the perfect vacation. Anyone who is considering renting this condo but has doubts or is on the fence go for it - YOU WILL LOVE IT!

Many people doubted that we could vacation in Sanibel for 2 weeks without being totally bored. Not true - we could have stayed a month. It is that perfect.

Thanks again for a perfect and memorable vacation!

Owner's Response: Amy,
Thank you for your review. It is the perfect get away! I have stared so many times myself at that perfect view from the kitchen! Having my coffee in the early morning on the lanai is one of my favorite relaxing activities while watching the shrimping boats and occasional dolphin's 100 yards out. Bill and I enjoy hearing from our guest and we like to share our favorite places on Sanibel with our guest. Pinocchio's ice cream we just talked about and miss their own special flavors. Mum Good!!!!! We bought the unit after hurricane Charlie as piece of concrete with a view, and were able to really upgrade with granite, stainless, real wood cabinets, imported Italian tile, all professionally decorated in a warm Tommy Bahamas' style. I wanted it to be a truly enjoyable condo getaway. Thank you for your confirming it is a beautiful place!
Thank you again and let us know when you want to rent again for a truly enjoyable get away.
Barb and Bill
