Love Sanibel but not this condo.......
We had stayed in the condo above this unit and had a wonderful trip, so when it was booked we thought we would stay in the unit below....how different could it be? Turns out a lot. First, I have to say that the unit was clean and ready on time and the furnishings were adequate. I was a bit surprised that a rental unit still had old analog TVs, although the den had been changed to a small flat screen. And all the remotes needed new batteries. Took forever to change a channel. Also the phones did not work at all, but we had cell phones so it wasn't that big of a deal. I did notify the mgmt and they said all rentals were required to have working phones. And the front screen door was broken so we were always trying to keep it from slamming against a wall and breaking the glass. The shower head in the master must have cost about 5 bucks....seriously.....a small plastic thing that released a very nice soft trickle. And this is a small thing, but for a unit that sleeps 6 there were 3 wine glasses. Overall, I just felt like the owners really don't care about the little things that really do make someone want to return to their property. But the biggest issue was that there were no beach towels provided, much less any type of beach/pool equipment......except for 2 very ratty rusty short beach chairs that were probably left by prior renters. This is the first time in well over 100 beach trips that beach towels were not provided. We absolutely love Sanibel and will definitely return.....just not to this particular unit.
