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

Super spacious, totally modernized Sundial 2 BR - Unit J-307, next to Sundial Resort. Dine, relax or watch the sunrise on the screened lanai. Marvel at the fantastic view of the Gulf of Mexico from the kitchen, living room, Master BR and screened porch! Steps to private, uncrowded pool (separate from Sundial Resort) and pristine, shell-filled, calm-water beach.

100% updated condo - granite counters/stainless appliances in kitchen, crown moldings/recessed lighting, upscale furnishings throughout, modern bathrooms. 3 HD TV's, cable & wifi. Dining table seats 6, plus 2 extra dining stools at adjacent kitchen bar. We provide cushy (not standard flimsy) bath and beach towels, plus beach equipment (chairs, umbrella, toys) - many units do not provide beach 'stuff,' and oodles of games/puzzles for family fun.

We are 2 families in NY/NJ whose collective five fantastic kids love Sanibel!

Leslie and Andrea purchased this condo in 2011

Sanibel Island is the best vacation spot! We're right on the beach, steps from our pool (and should you choose to use it - resort - which for a fee allows entrance to tennis and larger more occupied pool). The airport is a breeze (no rental car shuttle - cars are right there!). There are tons of cute, fun restaurants. You can bike the whole island. Sanibel doesn't feel like the stereotype of 'Florida' - there are no chains on the island, the beach is totally unspoiled with famed amazing shelling, majority of the island is a preserve so there's lots of wildlife/birds - it's great for all age groups - It's quiet and peaceful, but water sports and nightlife are minutes away. Between the incredible endless beaches, exotic flora/fauna and wildlife, it really feels as if we're in the Caribbean.

The beach is right there! People are friendly and easy-going. You feel yourself 'lighten' as you drive onto Sanibel over the causeway. Everything is minutes away. Great shopping & opportunities to work-out (Sanibel Recreation, biking, Sundial facilities)

STEPS TO THE OCEAN!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our visit to this condo and we would love to have stayed for longer.
The condo was peaceful and we really appreciated the thoughtful addition of the beach chairs and other equipment in the storage room.
The pool was quiet and we loved the close proximity to the ocean, just steps and you are on the sand. The condo was easily accessible from the allocated parking spaces by elevator and it was clean, very well presented and well maintained. Tennis courts, bicycle hire, kayaking and many other activities and amenities are all conveniently situated.
Sanibel is a beautiful island and I would certainly recommend this home.
Thank you, we are looking forward to our next trip to Sanibel!

PERFECT CONDO

  • 5 of 5
This is the perfect condo to spend a weeklong getaway. The condo was super clean and it had everything we needed to make our stay feel like home from comfortable sleeping accommodations, ample seating space, a spacious kitchen and a fun selection of games (yahtzee is our favorite - great choice!) I loved that I could wake up in the morning and step onto the patio and watch the sunrise over the ocean, all without leaving our condo. Late at night, we loved sitting on the couch with the patio door open enjoying the breeze. With a pool right in the complex and beach access right there, we could not have been happier to spend our vacation in this condo. It's also a short ride to some of the great restaurants and activities on the island. Thanks for having us - we will DEFINITELY be back!

WE ENJOYED THIS CONDO VERY MUCH!

  • 5 of 5
You can not go wrong in renting this condo. Everything was just as listed in the information. Andrea and Leslie were both so helpful and professional, and it was wonderful to have such a personal touch. The condo was very large and beautifully laid out and furnished, and it was very clean. It truly was a home away from home for a week! We especially enjoyed how comfortable the living area was for evenings in, and loved the storage closet downstairs off the covered parking space for beach chairs, umbrella, and sand toys, which were provided. There were also beach towels in the linen closet to use, which helps tremendously when you are travelling by air and do not need to pack these items. This was our second time to Sanibel, the first being 6-7 years previously, and this was the best condo. The view of the fountain area, pool and ocean was nice, and the lanai was huge, and great to hand swimsuits on at the end of the day. It was also perfect having the washer and dryer in the condo, where I was able to wash suits and towels each evening. Our favorite places we visited for dinner were Island Cow, the kids loved Island Pizza, the Mexican Cantina on Captiva, and RC Otters on Captiva. Also try Pinocchios ice cream, not to miss, it is outstanding! Additionally, we rented bikes from Billy's, and a boat from Port Sanibel Marina, which was a lot of fun! Thank you Andrea, Leslie, and your families for sharing this great condo with us, for a memorable vacation.

WONDERFUL TIME IN SANIBEL

  • 5 of 5
I am late submitting my review but the memories still are vivid. This unit was absolutely glorious! We were a group of 5 ladies celebrating our 50th birthdays.
The accommodations were perfect! Perfect beach, perfect unit equipped with any and everything imaginable. Not only were the rooms big but the living area was comfortable with comfortable sitting for all night gab sessions.
The owners were very accommodating. They will answer any questions and give wonderful suggestions. This is a reservation that you did not have to worry about. Rent this unit and have a fabulous time!

GREAT CONDO!

  • 5 of 5
We spent 4 nights , what a spacious condo and VERY well equipped with everything. Even a small
storage room that held all the outside equipment. (I knew the sight had said umbrellas, chairs, pool toys etc but took us a while to figure out where they were!)
I loved the fact the washer/dryer were in the condo itself. Why anyone would choose to stay next door at the Sundial Resort itself I do not know- we walked over there for an ice cream treat and with it undergoing an extensive renovation it was a mess. We were so glad to get back to our oasis.
Loved our daily walks on the beach, very simply said WE LOVE Sanibel. Highly recommend this condo, the screened in lanai is also great, had all our meals there!

Owner's Response: Dear Paul and Jill - Sundial O-302 truly is an oasis! When you visit with us you see what you get - privacy, quiet, the pool, the beach, the lanai...ahhhhhhh! When you book through Sundial, the rentals are on a rotation basis and you haven't a clue as to which private owners condo you'll be placed in upon arrival. Our photos, our reviews, our guests...all are amazing!!! We thank you for taking the time to write this review and look forward to seeing you again soon - Andrea, Leslie, Neil, Bob, David, Dana, Jeremy, Aidan and Aliza

FABULOUS CONDO

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a "too short" visit to this lovely Sanibel condo.......the rooms are all huge and beautifully decorated and the incredible view of the gulf, palm trees, pool and fountain from the very large lanai is breathtaking. The kitchen is fully stocked with anything you may need and I was very pleasantly surprised to find dish soap and dishwasher detergent, laundry soap, paper towels, etc. available for us too. Also tons of games, books and CD's.....and the notebooks they prepared on the island with things to do, restaurants, shopping, etc. You can tell the owners took a lot of TLC to make sure their guests enjoyed their stay and had everything at their fingertips (not to mention a phone call before your visit to see if you needed anything and suggestions for your visit). What a special touch! And I really appreciated having the beach umbrellas and chairs to use - and even a small cooler to take to the beach!! I will definitely recommend this condo to all my friends and I hope to return for a repeat stay soon!

Thanks Andrea and Leslie for making our trip extra enjoyable!

Owner's Response: Dear Kathleen - Thank you so much for this terrific review! The purchase and upkeep and enjoyment of our incredible condo has been a beautiful collaborative effort between my sister Leslie and me. We enjoy being there. We enjoy caring for our "baby". We enjoy our guests!!! Meeting new people and cultivating relationships with people we otherwise would not have ever met is amazing! Sundial is magnificent - a gem, a jewel - and most people don't know it exists! Our condo truly is amazing - spacious - 1600+ square feet - the largest 2 bedroom in sundial. We appreciate knowing that we made a difference because we want to and really, really care...Best to you and look forward to seeing you again - Andrea, et al :-)

Car: recommended

Steps away for your use are our Condo pool & pristine, shell-filled beach.

Sanibel Recreation Center is a 7 minute drive - great weight room, classes, lap pool & pool with slide..great value!

To avoid confusion, Sundial Resort is separate from our privately owned/managed Condo. Our 2BR Coastal condo rents at rates 30%-50% lower than comparable size units/views rented thru the Resort.

Our building, J is steps away from a large, pristine private Condo pool for your use (never crowded/always a chaise available!), gorgeous view of gulf from our kitchen, living room, master BR and screened lanai. We provide photos & precisely what to expect in décor, location & view. Sundial Resort rents out in rotation - you find out which unit, décor, location only at check-in.

Sundial Resort's waterfront restaurants and bar are open to you.

A Resort ameneties package is an option (confirm prices/availability with Resort) - $30/day per adult for use of their pool (though we love ours!) kayaks (Tarpon Bay is another option), golf discounts - even adding this option, our condo is a far superior value.

Must sees during your visit are the Sanibel Lighthouse, sunset drinks at the Mucky Duck on Captiva Island, dolphin cruises, a bike or drive thru the Ding Darling Preserve for amazing bird and other wildlife sightings.

We have lots of other recommendations including the best restaurants (we've tried literally all of them)...to share with you upon booking.
