Sanibel Island Condo Rental Photos and Description
Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

It's the convenience that impressed us... being able to sit out on the lanai and savor the gulf view, listen to the waves, watch the birds land in the lagoon just a few feet away... and then walk right out the screen door and in a minute be on the beach or take a dip in the pool. The easy life... That's what we wanted for our family and we know you'll feel the same way once you've experienced it!

Not that you'll want to leave the condo! We have free wi-fi and flat-screen cable TV in all the rooms.. Colorful Floridian decor with plenty of space to stretch out; a fabulous kitchen with all the things you need at your disposal when you wish to eat in (our favorite meal is breakfast on the lanai but we also love to use the lagoon-side BBQ grills to meet other guests and enjoy a home cooked dinner)..

The master bedroom features a view of the gulf and a king-size memory foam bed and has an attached private bathroom suite. The second bedroom has twin beds and direct access to its bathroom. There is room for an additional roll-away if needed.

We also have a queen sleeper sofa with a memory foam mattress.

But thing that really is special about the ground floor units at Pointe Santo is that it is very hard on Sanibel to find true ground floor convenience combined with beautiful views of the gulf.. This is because of the zoning on Sanibel that has pushed most development far back away from the beach and established a natural vegetative buffer zone separating the beach form the properties - a buffer that usually blocks some or all of the view of the gulf from the grounds and ground floor units.

NOT SO AT POINTE SANTO! We are among the very few complexes that has a full unobstructed view of the gulf from just about anywhere in the courtyard. This means you can enjoy the view form the lounge chairs on the lawn at beach's edge and watch the pelicans fly and the dolphin swim while sitting under the palm trees....or from the pool and, especially from your lanai. And because our building are not set back from the beach, everyone has close contact with the beach!

Want to do something? Enjoy on-site tennis or shuffleboard. Perhaps join a game of beach volleyball. There is even a children's activity program available. We are right on Sanibel bike path and you can take an easy ride to shopping, restaurants or perhaps the wonderful wildlife refuges nearby.

Whatever your desires are, we are sure that Sanibel and Pointe Santo will form the basis for many happy memories as it has for our family. We welcome you to enjoy the easy life as our guests!

We also have one cat and 6 laying hens. None travel with us.

ken purchased this condo in 2003

After coming to Sanibel for years we decided to make it official in 2003 and purchase a vacation home. We love biking and nature and have become avid shellers. We live in the northeast and having the connection to Sanibel warms us even during the coldest winter days. We hope to make Sanibel our home in the years to come!

We enjoy being so close to shopping, theater, and the wildlife refuge. Everything you want is within a 5-10 minute drive. Leaving the mainland and arriving on Sanibel is like shedding your skin- you feel renewed! The best part our our location is that we can get up early and watch sunrise over the gulf looking toward the mainland and take our morning walk along the beach (and collect a few shells).. Then in the evening take a drink to the beach and watch a glorious sunset over the Gulf of Mexico and watch for the 'Green Flash'. Heavenly!

Our stay at Pointe Santo was everything that we expected. The apartment was well appointed and we found everything that we were looking for. The location of the actual unit on the ground floor was perfect for my family with three small children for easy access to the beach through the lanai, without having to walk around the building. Great vacation, beautiful weather, I would highly recommend this unit. The owners were very easy to deal with and extremely responsive to all of my questions prior to renting the unit. Check in and check out was hassle free as well. Overall excellent value for money, high recommended.

We highly recommend this condo for its perfect location-a two minute walk to the beach, which you can see from the ground level patio--as well as its comfortable furnishings, ground level location, reasonable price, and pleasant owners. Sanibel is a fantastic place to visit, with its gorgeous beaches, terrific shelling, excellent restaurants and shops. We will go back every year that we can!

Renting this condo was easy and affordable, especially in May. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised by look of the complex. When we walked in the door we were blown away by how beautiful it was, so spacious and lovely. We just loved sitting in the early morning sun in the lanai looking out over the pond at the birds and enjoying a coffee. Ambling down to the beach to sunbath, swim and to watch stunning sunrises and sunsets was so easy and enjoyable. The pool wasn't huge but it was very well maintained, as was the hot tub and the entire complex. A short bike ride to everything -- shopping, restaurants, conservation area or a long bike ride for an outing; I can't imagine a better holiday. Thank you!!

"My all time favorite vacation spot after 7 years

  • Submitted: Sep 29, 2012

I've been visiting this condo for 7 years, and the quality has consistently been terrific. The owners very clearly care about providing a lovely home away from home, and that's how I've come to think of it.

Every year, there are enhancements like a flatscreen tv, or additional comfy chairs. There's never any deferred maintenance problem, for example, the carpet was replaced before it was worn out.

I expecially like the kitchen. All the dishes match, and the appliances are in excellent shape - it's not just a few leftover pots and pans and some cracked plates. If I were to host a dinner party, I could set a really nice table.

The complex is awesome and well-maintained, and the condo has a lovely screened in porch with a view of the gulf. Right outside the condo is a lagoon, and there's a pool just next to the beach. There are barbecues set around the grounds so you can have a cookout if you like.

Sanibel Island is a lot of fun - there's some good shopping and opportunities for doing some outdoor activities (not my cup of tea, so can't elaborate). There are also good restaurants, and a couple of great grocery stores.

I can't recommend this place highly enough. If you want a comfortable, casual, relaxed vacation, this is the place for you.

This is a great ground floor condo unit with direct access to the courtyard. This is great to have with kids...no running around to the parking lot side to get into the unit. The unit is clean and nicely appointed. I would recommend this unit to families and people who don't want to climb stairs. Very convenient!

We have stayed in this unit for two years in a row now. It offers us everything we need

Beautiful surroundings, comfortable living in a tropical island setting. Whether it was sitting by the pool, walking on the beach collecting shells or splashing in the ocean waves - it was a vacation dream. Loved the condo, loved the beach, loved Sanibel Island. I've rented Florida condos at Siesta Key & Panama City, but this one at Sanibel was by far the best experience. Without a doubt, I will to go back to Pointe Santo in the future. This ground floor condo was just a short walk to the beach or pool. I loved that lounge chairs were provided in both sunny & shady areas

Great location and beach! We love Sanibel and this condo / resort was no exception. The first floor with walk out ability was wonderful. It really made a differance in carring all the fishing gear to the beach. We'll be back!

Pointe Santos is a great location to stay on Sanibel - good sunrise as well as wonderful sunset views. Shelling is as good in that section of beach as anywhere else we found at that time. Condo was very clean and comfortable and met all of our needs. Looking forward to next trip back.

This review is from a popular traveller-review web site.... Contact owner for source of review.........

"This was our 4th annual visit to the condo, and we've had a great time every year.

The condo is great: it's always in terrific shape - clean, well-kept, fresh. The amenities are just what we need - dishes, appliances, etc. are also well-kept.

The location is great. Sanibel Island is a mellow place for a relaxed vacation with easy access to shopping and beaches. There are good restaurants and a couple of really great grocery stores.

The condo complex itself is also really well-maintained, and we love the pool and the barbeque grills.

We're so happy to have found this spot. "

From a popular traveller reviewer web site. Contact owner for source.

Pointe Santo is located centrally on the island in easy distance to wildlife areas, groceries, post office, shopping. You can bike to these locations easily. The complex has a pool, hot Tub, sturdy lounge chairs on the beach, lots of grills, fabulous shelling beach and you can see both the sunrise and sunset from this beach. This condo is very well equipped including a spacous kitchen with everything you need. The refrig has water and ice in door, lots of good knives, 2 sets of nice dishes. The unit is up to date throughout. We enjoyed reading the guest book which has stories of the experiences of other guests including wildlife sitings, restaurant experiences, activities to try etc. Also the owner has a book which gives lots of information about the island. The clubhouse has a computer and printer for printing boarding passes as well as puzzles, games and movies you can take out for your entire stay. The sleeper sofa has a memory foam topper which makes it very comfortable for an adult. A nice feature is that you can go outdoors on the lagoon side and lock the sliding doors there instead of having to go out the back door and around. The first floor location is a plus for going to the beach, pool etc. I've stayed in other units at Point Santo and this is a step above. We plan to stay here again next year. It's paradise!
