The romantic master bedroom has a full wall of glass, leading out to the lanai. If you keep your bathroom door open, you can even see the ocean from your shower! The electronics and appliances are top-notch.
This is our only vacation place and we come several times a year to work on making sure it is perfect for our guests.

Shell collectors will love long walks on the Sanibel Island beach that is famous for the incredible variety and quantity of sea shells! Sanibel Island has been named as one of the top shelling beaches in Travel & Leisure magazine. Sanibel has also been featured on the Travel Channel, CBS Morning Show, and included in the '1,000 Places to See Before You Die' book. Arthur Frommer listed Sanibel as his #1 favorite place IN THE WORLD!
This well-equipped condo includes special extra touches because we want you to have what you need for a fantastic vacation. Enjoy our high quality plush thick deep cushions lanai furniture (perfect for a nap!). There is also a washer and dryer in the condo. Ceiling fans were installed in both bedrooms and lanai. If you love to cook you'll be delighted with the extensive high quality kitchen supplies. If you would rather leave the cooking to someone else, there are over 40 delicious restaurants on Sanibel. After dinner we have over 110 different movies from which you can choose to watch. Or you can watch dolphins and birds with the 3 pairs of binoculars we provide in the condo.
Sanibel Surfside only has 38 units, providing a calm and peaceful ambiance for your vacation. Most of the Sanibel Surfside owners are residents. They are very friendly and welcoming to our guests. Children are welcome, but please do not bring their colorful markers to protect the expensive fine furnishings. The entire family can rent bikes (which can be delivered to you) and enjoy the bike friendly paths of Sanibel. We've also provided a variety of children and teenager movies in our movie library to give the adults some quiet time to enjoy the lanai views and sounds.
For your convenience we have a fantastic beach closet (located on ground floor covered parking area) full of beach chairs, beach umbrellas, pool/beach toys, coolers, beginner's tennis rackets, some fishing bait gear, etc... for you to borrow during your vacation. So pack light, and enjoy our many extra amenities!
Do you enjoy golf, tennis, or shuffleboard? There are 2 golf courses nearby, 2 tennis courts behind the pool area for Sanibel Surfside guests only. With only 38 units in this quaint peaceful complex, it is easy to find an available court or chair at the pool. There are no tennis court or shuffleboard fees.
There is a beautiful, uncrowded, clean, refreshing heated pool!
Sanibel Surfside is also a SMOKE-FREE environment. The Condo's association by-laws do not allow smoking in the units, on the lanais, or anywhere near the pool. You can enjoy the fresh smell of the ocean breeze. If you are a smoker you will prefer a different condo complex due to the strict non-smoking rules at Sanibel Surfside.
Sanibel Surfside was constructed before restrictions went into effect regarding how close a building could be to the ocean. Thus, our condo is one of the closest to the water. This is why you can enjoy hard-to-find unobstructed views down the coast line as well as directly out to the water.
We use the assistance of a local helpful & friendly rental property management company for many reasons. You can easily check-in to obtain your keys regardless of how late you might arrive on Sanibel (they are very close to the condo). Also, they will quickly respond 24 hours a day if you are locked out, misplace your keys, or any other urgent matter. Their professional office will handle any paperwork and safely/securely collect your deposit & rental payments. They can also help you with any requests you may have while staying in our condo. The rental management company has a complimentary computer and printer available to you in their large, beautiful lobby, if you need to print a boarding pass or an important e-mail. Their services help us to provide excellent customer service to our guests so that you may have a first-rate, relaxing, and worry-free First Class vacation.
To show our appreciation for finding us on the internet...If you decide to be our guest we will instruct our rental property management company to subtract $35 from your rent to make up for their $35 booking fee.
Rental periods are always Saturday to Saturday (with Check-In at 3pm and Check-Out at 10am). Our condo association regulations do not allow guest reservations for less than 7 nights. Sanibel is such a fantastic island that you will be glad you stayed at least a week! We can confirm reservations up to 52 weeks in advance.
Please don't hesitate to contact us and we will send you our new website address link to view more photos & details.
Hopefully Sanibel will become an annual tradition to include in your travel plans. :)
We welcome you to this bit of fantasy on the beach and look forward to sharing our sensational vacation home with you.

Visiting Sanibel was always our favorite destination. This is not just a rental property to us, it is our tenderly cared for home-away-from-home. It is a pleasure to spoil our guests with the best views, service, amenities, and cleanliness. We hope some day to be able to live in this wonderful condo. Currently we live in St. Louis, Missouri and enjoy providing excellent hospitality to all our guests.
We selected this Sanibel condo after several years of patiently searching for 'the perfect condo' on the 'perfect beach'.
This large lanai was the closest to the ocean. The views and sounds were irresistible! The inside of the condo is equally beautiful.
We were also attracted to the quiet and small size of Sanibel Surfside.
We both love to play tennis at Sanibel Surfside and Mike is thrilled to be so close to the golf courses.
Our condo is unique because it was completely gutted and remodeled right before we purchased it in 2008.
There are many extra special touches for our guests.
The lanai's plush thick cushions are one of our guest's favorite amenities....along with the high-speed wireless internet and 100+ movies. The lanai also has outer sliding glass doors which is rare - if it does rain you can still relax on the lanai and stay dry!
Sanibel Surfside's unique master bedrooms have an entire wall of sliding glass doors to watch the ocean while resting in bed.
All the furniture and bedding are new, fresh, updated, and clean.
Our goal is first-class service so that you will want to return or recommend us to your friends.
We have experience staying at individually owned properties on our own vacations and know what 'extras' we hope to find in the condo.
Our goal is to exceed your expectations!
