THE TROPICAL PENTHOUSE

Sanibel Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

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

Our Tropical Penthouse is at the end of the second building and affords that extra peace and quiet that you search for when you want to get away from all of the hustle & bustle. We are located on the third floor and occupy a portion of the fourth floor, due to our soaring ceilings, which allow for a more open feeling. There are only a few of these unique penthouses on the entire island! (Actually, there are no high-rise buildings on Sanibel, but these units are fondly referred to as ''penthouses''). The 1,385 square feet are all on a single floor.

Features: VAULTED CEILINGS, Many Architectural Details, TROPICAL Decor, Glass-Enclosed LANAI with Sliders to capture Ocean Breezes. FULLY-Equipped Kitchen, New W/Dryer. 2 Bedrooms, 2 Full Baths, Beds: 1 Queen (Hand-carved), 2 Twins, Convertible Queen, 2 Dining Areas, Beach Chairs, Cable Satelite, 3 TVs (ONE WITH 42'' FLAT SCREEN-COMCAST HD, DVR), 100s of Channels, 2 DVD PLAYERS, Stereo, CD Player, WIFI SECURED, Outside Elevator

Unique Benefits of Our Family Home: Enjoy our deluxe TROPICAL PENTHOUSE. We have a private linen/towel service so that everything will be 'hospital-clean' for you. Established island management company attends to your needs. ALL you have to do is RELAX.

From our enclosed and beautifully-furnished lanai, you can enjoy a quiet breakfast overlooking the well-manicured courtyard and watch the birds light on the palms, Bougainvilleas, and lush foliage. And there is a partial view of the beach.

Take the stairs or elevator outside, stroll through the courtyard, pass one of the largest pools on the island, and within a couple of minutes, you will find yourself on the world-renown shelling beach, gazing at the aqua waters with nothing between you and Mexico. Your only decision now is whether to sunbathe, swim or walk--without a care in the world.

Later you may want to walk, bike, or ride to local shops & restaurants. Or cross the bridge to find malls, larger grocery stores, movie complexes, and city conveniences

Family Memories at The Tropical Penthouse: Our family purchased this condo in 1974, and we kept it as our special family retreat, affording us an abundance of wonderful memories. We had fun redecorating several times, and always kept the tropical theme. We only began to share our secret and to rent a few years ago.

We love to swim out to the buoy, lounge on the beach and read books to each other, bird and people watch, and bike 27 miles on safe bike trails. We go to Captiva, have a Starbucks soy milk and bike back again. We kayak, dance and dine at elegant restaurants as well as eat out at the casual restaurants, shop at Periwinkle Place, eat homemade ice cream at Pinochio's, watch a sunset on the beach, and take romantic walks. Sometimes we even relax and fall asleep on the beautifully hand-carved bed with the comfy mattress, while ocean breezes surround us. We breathe deeply and sleep soundly. We are in our Tropical Paradise!

About Us: I was a ballerina and later had a career in sales/marketing for a fortune 500 company. My husband was a nuclear chemist. We are now both retired, and we return several times a year to enjoy our beautiful, tropical home. Although we have visited many resorts around the world, we have found that we love our Sanibel home the best! We hope that you will have a chance to enjoy our home and island as much as we do!

We want you to feel like honored guests in our home. We will be available to help you as much as possible. But since we are a state away, we have employed a well-established management/rental company to have your keys waiting for you, to answer any questions, and to just be on hand to make sure that everything is running smoothly & that you having the perfect vacation at our special get-away

Of course we love The Tropical Penthouse. It is our family home. But we hope that you will read our reviews to learn how much our other guests have loved our family retreat also.

"Hi June, yes, we did indeed enjoy our stay in your lovely penthouse and had a great week on Sanibel. We felt very much at home - we could see that it is not only an apartment to rent, but a real family home. We are leaving tomorrow for St Pete but are sure to come back - maybe next year...

Best regards and thank you for letting us stay in your penthouse.

Petra and Uwe"

It would be very difficult to find a Sanibel condo that is more beautifully updated & decorated than this tropical penthouse. We were delighted to be able to spend a week in this immaculate, attractive & well-appointed condo. Most rental units appear tired and as though they haven't been redecorated in 20 years, but NOT THIS ONE! The owners have displayed beautiful artifacts from their travels which adorn the unit. The lanaii is enclosed, so we could enjoy this extra space even during rain storms & high temperatures. You can't go wrong renting this lovely unit...and best of all, it's on wonderful Sanibel!!! By the way, the owner is great also!

Some guests have taken a short drive into town during the spring to see the training grounds and training of the Boston Red Sox and the Minnesota Twins. There is very quick, easy access from Loggerhead to the causeway, if you want to leave the island and explore the area. You may enjoy a wonderful tour of Thomas Edison's home in Ft Myers.
