My husband and I stayed at Mariner Pointe for our honeymoon. We can't say enough good things about this condo. Everything was perfect! The condo is exactly as it's described. It was impeccably clean when we arrived. It's the perfect size for two people and has everything you need for a week or an extended stay. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the tools you need for home cooked meals. We were impressed with the high end appliances! The view is incredible, and we enjoyed many nights fishing right outside our back door. We were pleasantly surprised to find a washer and dryer inside the unit. We were able to wash our beach/bath towels between uses and have clean clothes to take back to Illinois.
It may have been a slower season, but we truly felt like we were the only people at the complex. The peace and tranquility was exactly what we needed after weeks of wedding chaos! The pool isn't huge, but still a great size! Everyone who we did see was super friendly. Also, the staff was awesome! We ran into David, who oversees some of the maintenance. It was a pleasure getting to know him and having someone to chat with for a few minutes.
Sanibel is a great location for any vacationer looking for a mix of rest & excitement. There are a slew of restaurants nearby - our favorites being Lazy Flamingo and Fresh Taqueria. Groceries and everyday items can be a little pricey on the island, so we made a trip to Publix just over the causeway in Fort Myers. Billy's Bike Rentals is less than a mile from the condo, and riding around the island was one of our favorite parts about the trip.
All in all, we would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting Sanibel. We hope to make a return visit in the foreseeable future.
