BEACH, BIKES AND OCEAN BREEZES- SANIBEL ARMS 2 BEDROOM, 2 BATH

Pine Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Look out on the Gulf of Mexico from the lanai, take a few steps to the beach for sunning or shelling, or dock your boat for free on the canal. Bike paths galore on the island, starting right outside your front door, and two 7-speed bikes are provided for your use. Travel a half mile to the famous Sanibel Lighthouse, or a bit further to the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge.

Much of the island has remained undeveloped and it is very flat--perfect for bikes or walking. Tropical plants and wildlife abound, but the island is probably best known for the beautiful seashells that wash up on its roughly 10 miles of Gulf shoreline--all of it accessible to the public, and conveniently a stone's throw from your 2-bedroom, 2nd floor corner unit (sleeps 4-6) in the Sanibel Arms condominiums.

Recently renovated with a fully equipped kitchen and satellite televisions in both bedrooms and the living room. Wireless internet access is included. Cookout on the gas grills or just enjoy the heated pool and clubhouse.

Leslie is an RN and Bill is a meteorologist working at Penn State. We've been married 25 years, have two kids, who you can see in some of the pictures, and a min pin named Gunther, who does not visit the condo.

Bill and Leslie Syrett, Owners purchased this condo in 2011

We first came to Sanibel after a week at Disneyworld when the kids were much younger and fell in love with the beaches with all the beautiful shells, the wildlife, bike paths and the relative quiet.

A 30-minute trip from the laid-back Southwest Florida International Airport near Fort Myers, on the east end of Sanibel Island. Sanibel Arms is special in that it has both Gulf of Mexico and canal frontage. The unit is on the Gulf of Mexico side of E. Gulf Drive, with a second-floor corner lanai that has a great Gulf view and tropical breezes.

Bill and Leslie,
Sorry for the delay in commenting about how wonderful your condo was on our trip. The Condo was as described, clean and well maintained, and was a great getaway before school started. Perfect location on the Island for running around or just staying put. WE WILL be contacting you for future stays!

We loved our stay at Sanibel Arms and would definitely stay there again. The condo was as expected but better-had bikes, wi-fi and direct tv!! The condo had everything we needed and was nicely decorated! Close to the pool and beach. (and ice cream!)

Owner's Response: We appreciate your kind words. Also, we will be putting new, "non-crinkly" mattresses in the second bedroom in early August! We're very happy that you enjoyed your stay.

Great Sanibel Condo!

We really enjoyed our stay here. The condo is very close to the beach - closer than how it seemed in the pictures. The condo was very well furnished, as well as very clean - we were impressed at how well the kitchen was furnished. And having a washer/dryer right in the condo was super convenient too. We really liked the decor - very classic Florida - and we enjoyed a couple of the movies from the library as well as some of the board games. Ceiling fans in every room were also a nice plus, and the lanai was great for sitting outside. Loved that the condo included beach chairs, umbrella and toys. The bikes were also a great benefit - we rode our bikes up to the Lighthouse beach several times and also to the ice cream shop there! The location was great - with being so close to the bridge, it was very easy to get in and out without dealing with the traffic hassles. And shelling was great too.

Thanks!

We had a great week enjoying Sanibel, your bikes and the condo. The owner made sure we had all the information we needed and the unit was comfortable and clean. The listing was very accurate and so were the photos. They had lots of games and puzzles in case of a rainy day, but Sanibel has so much to offer we didn't need them. Thank you!

Wonderful condo and owners!!!! Was lovely setting with no high rise here. Small community with pool, grills and much more. COndo is nicely furnished with comfortable beds!!! Loved the screened in lanai especially at night sitting, relaxing and enjoying the sound of the surf! It was soo quiet and peaceful at all times. The best part was the minimal amount of other people on the beach. We ran into a couple of other couples staying in the complex and everyone was very nice and friendly including the site manager. The beach is gorgeous and highly recommend walking to the light house in the evening. We also enjoyed the two bikes that were included in the condo rental. We rode to a new location every day. we also enjoyed the games that are kept in the condo. It was the perfect place for us and anyone that wants a quiet, peaceful and relaxing retreat. Highly recommend this condo. we also enjoyed the Jacaranda restaurant and kayaking in the tarpon bay. Many thanks to the owners for their help, they are terrific.! thanks for the wonderful vacation.!!!!
