About Vince or Marilyn Conoscenti

Vince and Marilyn are originally from Glen Ellyn, Illinois and now reside on Sanibel Island just a half mile from this unit.

Vince or Marilyn Conoscenti purchased this condo in 1998

Why Vince or Marilyn Conoscenti chose Sanibel Island

This unit represents our vacation home while raising a family and still in the working world. It has always been a very special place to us and our family.

What makes this condo unique

We fell in love with Sanibel and Pine Cove with all it's luscious trees and flowers. The pool area with jacuzzi and BQ area were always special, but the unit's unique top floor cozy location and breathtaking views from the lanai are the treasure.

OK, but not perfect.

  • 3 of 5
The condo itself is nice, but we did have some issues while there.

First, they were doing work to the condo unit beneath us and the workers would sometimes come and start work very early in the morning (before 8AM at times) and were frequently very loud during the day as well - so if you wanted to come back for a rest out of the sun, forget about it. Unfortunately, this was not relayed to us before the trip, we were just told at checkin.

Secondly, the unit was definitely not cleaned well when we got there. There were still food crumbs all over the kitchen floor, hair in the fridge, and dirty tissues next to the nightstand in one of the bedrooms.

Thirdly, when we got there we turned the AC down a bit as it was too hot in the apartment. The thermostat had some sort of glitch though that dropped the AC down to 60 (even though we had set it to 69). While we were out getting groceries, a maintenance guy showed up in our unit, turned it back up, and left us a note telling us we could not turn it below 72 degrees or it would freeze the AC unit and we would be without air for at least 5-6 hours. As you can imagine, it was hot pretty much the whole time we were there then, because the AC did not do a great job of keeping it even at 72!

Some of these things have nothing to do with the owners I am sure, but it would have been nice if they had been more responsive (or responsible) to let us know about some of these before our one and only vacation of the year got booked. I exchanged one email with the owner before booking, but my second email with more questions was not answered at all. A little customer service can go a long way, and I regret not having changed my mind after the lack of response.

The view from the unit is great though. It is stocked with lots of kitchen utensils. It is super close to the beach, obviously, and had a storage unit downstairs to keep our beach stuff in. It says it will sleep 6, but that could be very crowded - 4 is definitely great though.

Not a bad deal if you go during off peak season... but our friends stayed up the road for cheaper and had a much nicer place.

Owner's Response: Mark. I am sorry you had a bad experience at Pine Cove, but unfortunately I have no control over what my neighbor decides to do to update his unit. They had purchased it after you had booked, did not tell us fellow owners of his construction plans or time frame.
Each day was different. Actually, the prior week was very noisy which brought calls into the agency and they tried to speak with the contractor and even gifted to the disappointed guests.to make it happy.

Just spoke with the family that stayed in our unit directly below yours and was told "well, it was just average construction noise". I wish you would have called the agency that handles the property during your stay. Something could have down to make your stay more pleasant.

The same response would go for finding a condo not cleaned properly. I just talked to the cleaning company and they were most apologetic and wished they had known right away. A crew would have been dispatched immediately to rectify the situation.
This is the first time I have received a review like this so I guess our "batting average" is still above average. But since I can't hold their hand each week, I trust our guests to give us feed back immediately. If this were ever to happen to you anywhere you stay, register a complaint to management immediately and not wait three and a half weeks.

As you will recall and if I have to send copies I will, all received emails received responses. I even held our other unit open for your friend for at least four days awaiting a response only to find they were not going to need it.

Pine Cove is a special place to me as we even lived their for a period of time. Grant it, the unit is not huge, but homey comfortable with many amenities. In our site on VRBO, it states it is a two bedroom condo with a pullout sofa. It is qualified to sleep six, but for privacy and secluded comfort, preferably four or five if crib is needed.

We hope you will come to Sanibel again as it is a special island.
May next year's vacation be truly grand for you and your family wherever it may be.

My wife and I have been coming to this complex for years---sometimes with kids, sometimes without---and we can't say enough great things about this property. The location, the amenities, the quiet...and this unit is our favorite without a doubt. The view is a "wow"...and the place is always neat as a pin, stocked with everything we need to make our stay so relaxing, and the owners couldn't be more hospitable. We love it...and can't wait to come back. I just wish we could keep it our little secret. (PS: We saw more dolphins this trip than all our other trips combined. Thanks, Vince, for arranging that special treat!)

Owner's Response: Thank you "our five Huffs". It is such a treat to receive your great review. Once again, like getting a star on your paper many years ago!
We are truly happy that your stay in our home was good. We only wish we could take credit for the fine turnout of the dolphin (you know,"cue the dolphin") but that was so fortunate for you and your family.
We would love to share our home with you again in the future and once again, thank you for the kind remark. Vince & Marilyn

Dear Marilyn and Vince, Your condo is lovely,it is equipped with every comfort of home .The description of your unit(photos etc.) and outdoor grounds is right on! Thank you for the delicious bottle of wine, that was very thoughtful of you to remember our anniversary. The weather got quite chilly towards the end of our stay and the hot tub was used often.

HEAVEN ON EARTH

  • 5 of 5
Time of our lives!!! The condo is spacious and clean. Views galore, birds, ocean, puffy clouds and we will miss the sounds of the waves at night. Pool and hot tub were clean and fun. Front grounds are tropical vegetation, you must walk around them also. Baily's grocery store right up the street. I highly recommend this property to any one. Hawaii in Florida.....sweet Sanibel Island.

Fabulous Views

  • 5 of 5
The minute my granddaughters walked in and saw the Gulf they dubbed this unit "the best condo ever". The views are fabulous. We were close to the beach, pool, biking trails, shopping, and dining.

A typical day started with a walk on the beach, looking for seashells and dolphins. Yes, my granddaughters were swimming near the shore when two dolphins swam past on our first day. Then a trip to one of the Darling National Wildlife centers, followed by a bike ride and then swimming in the pool. They also loved having being able to decide on whether to eat "at home" or go to a nearby restaurant.

The condo is very well laid out, well appointed, and very well maintained. The owners even had a locker with beach chairs and umbrella!

We loved it and look forward to a returning.
