About Gary Pokrant

I am a semi-retired tax CPA from Maryland and a native of Chicago. My wife is a great quilter from southern Virginia.

Follow my Tweets at #SanibelSam

Since retiring 5 years ago, I have learned to bake artisan breads, oil paint, draw, and am working on becoming a gourmet chef. I am also a barbeque and chili judge.

I enjoy meeting people at the pool, bird watching, waking on the beach, SHELLING, and helping others.

Gary Pokrant purchased this condo in 2012

Why Gary Pokrant chose Sanibel Island

We re-discovered Sanibel Island and Sanibel Arms West condos and love them both. We now own I-8, I-4, I-1, K-3 & M-2.

After 30+ years of vacationing in Florida we know & like most of the state. But Sanibel stands head and shoulders above the rest of Florida.

First year, we came back 3 times and bought our first condo, I-4. The 2nd year we stayed for 4 months and bought our 2nd & 3rd condos, I-8 & K-3. In 2013, stayed 5 1/2 months and added I-1 and M-2. All have been or will shortly be remodeled. Bring your parents or your grand-kids both will love our condos.

What is special about Sanibel Arms West?

Uncrowded beaches, 90°F/32°C heated pool, friendly fellow owners and renters, great bird watching, world class wildlife preserves within a 15 minute drive and a great on-site property management team.

Guess that's why Arthur Frommer, world famous travel expert, just rated Sanibel Island, Florida as his #1 vacation destination in the world.

What makes this condo unique

WHY THIS CONDO?

1) Great location and views.

2) Newly renovated over the past 2 years.

3) High speed secure wireless-N internet added for just this condo.

Consistent wireless speeds of 17 Mpbs or bring your Ethernet cable for hardwired speeds of 100+ Mpbs. These are blazing fast speeds.

Get your work done quicker and on your schedule, then spend more time with your family on the beach, in the always 90 degree pool, and out exploring this unique island.

Stream your online movies and games with the Zoom DOCSIS 3.0 wireless-N modem secure internet access.

4) Free Vonage long distance calls to all USA and 60 countries. Stay in touch with your family, friends, and clients.

WHY SANIBEL ISLAND?

1) 70% of the island is a wildlife refuge or in the local conservation trust protected from future development. World class bird and wildlife watching is everywhere.

2) Great shelling. Sanibel beaches are ranked as one of the top 5 shelling location in the world. The beach at Sanibel Arms West is great for shelling. Go at low tide. Tide charts are available at the Bait Box on Periwinkle 1 block from the Causeway Road intersection or soon from my website, SanibelByTheSand

3) Friendly people – you will see drivers stopping to let car or biker cross the road cross. Each will wave thanks. You will catch yourself doing the same. Not a bad lesson for our children.

Other guests at Sanibel Arms West will wave or stop and talk. That’s nice.

4) 22 miles of paved bicycle paths. Whether you are 6 or 86, it is easy to bicycle on Sanibel.

Tell EVERYONE about the great condo you found.

Great place to stay on Sanibel!

  • 5 of 5
Choose this condo if you are looking for a comfortable home away from home on Sanibel Island! The condo is as pictured (except for some new living room furniture), nicely decorated and very clean and well-maintained. The beach is just a short walk away, and beach chairs are available for pick up along the way. The lanai offers a great place to sit and enjoy the breeze. Should you want to watch your favorite programs or conduct some business, the cable and secure, private wi-fi work very well. Laundry can be done right in the condo--it's so nice to throw a load in without having to use a coin laundry. The kitchen is exceptionally well-equipped for any meal or snack you would want to prepare.

The owner is quite helpful and has loads of information about things to do, places to go, and places to eat on and off the island.

Beautiful Sanibel condo with lots of tasteful updates! Best condo at Sanibel Arms West!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I rented this condo for a week during Easter. Prior to staying in this condo at Sanibel Arms West, we rented another unit in this facility for one night. Boy, it is amazing how 1970's decorations look so tired in most of these units. But when we arrived in I-8- WOW! The owner has remodeled the kitchen, opening up the wall between the kitchen and the living room. Very nice granite counters, beautiful cabinets with soft close hinges. Very nice furniture and everything was perfectly clean. The bedrooms were wonderful. This owner also owns unit I-4, but we have not seen it. You can't go wrong with this unit. Enjoy the beach!

Owner's Response: Thomas & Paige,
So happy you enjoyed your experience in our unit.

We are new owners within the past 2 years.

Our goal is to convert every guest into a repeat customer. We want our condo to be nice enough for you to consider it your second really nice home.

Sanibel is a special place. You deserve to stay at an equally special place during your visit.
