About The Owner

We love Sanibel Island. It's quiet, peaceful, and laid back. Half the island is nature preserve. There are no high rises or chain restaurants. The beach is beautiful and uncrowded--and the best shelling anywhere. You cross the causeway to the island, and you feel like you're in a different world.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2005

Why The Owner chose Sanibel

We visited and stayed in rental condos many times before buying at Pointe Santo. It's at the southernmost point on the island with a wide sandy beach. Pointe Santo is very 'family friendly'--with four grown children and three grandchildren, that was very important to us. The grounds are beautifully maintained, and we love to walk around and look at the flowers in bloom. In early 2005 we rented one of the condos, saw an 'Open House' sign, and bought a condo before we left. Now our family owns two Pointe Santo condos - penthouse D-47 (VRBO 1682) and beach-level E-2 (VRBO 170782).

What makes this condo unique

D-47 is at the top front corner of a building that's just steps from the beach. It features a private rooftop sun deck with panoramic views of the ocean, beach and grounds. It has been fully remodeled and professionally redecorated to luxury standards, with three flat-screen TVs, a PC, printer and high-speed Internet, and a beautiful kitchen fully equipped for people who like to cook. Everything you need for a perfect vacation is included. Our guests tell us 'Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us -- it really feels more like a home than a vacation rental.'

Had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Pointe Santo condos unit D47. This was our first trip to Sanibel. Unit was great and very nicely upgraded. It’s a fourth floor unit that has a unique rooftop deck with plenty of patio furniture including a pub table and loungers. There is also an outdoor screened in patio on the main level with a table and 4 chairs and a ceiling fan. Super nice to kick back and relax on covered patio in the afternoons. The unit is steps from the beach. Nice white sand beach filled with shells. Never crowded and great to sit next to the same friendly people everyday. The ocean was beautiful. The unit has everything you need. Nicely equipped kitchen where we cooked a few meals and also has everything you need for the beach. Nice beach chairs, umbrella , boogie boards and shelling gear. Travelled with my wife and teen age daughter. My daughter says this is her new favorite place. She met new friend while staying here. Lots of super friendly people. Tons of great restaurants. Dave the owner called us after check in to make sure everything was ok and gave us plenty of recommendations, which we really appreciated. You know he takes great pride in his rental units here at Pointe Santo.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the lovely review, Jeff. We're glad you liked our condo and the super-friendly ambiance at Pointe Santo. As you know, we live full time on Sanibel only about five minutes from Pointe Santo, so we know the island very well and work hard to provide recommendations. Lots of folks say they and their kids make new friends when they come to Pointe Santo, and arrange to come back the same week next year so they can spend a week with them again. Many families come back our condos year after year. We hope you'll come back and stay with us next year! Dave and Sandy

Perfect Condo!

This condo was perfect for our family of 5! The condo was so nicely decorated and had everything we needed and then some! The beach toys and towels were so appreciated. The condo was also so clean and fresh. The beach was perfect.

Happy in the "Show Me State"

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a Point Santo, unit 47, all we can say it was lavishly equipped. All the amenities you'd expect in a high end property. The penthouse view was fabulous. It was the perfect vacation on Sanibel with a great location. We will be back next year. We really appreciated the call from the owner upon arrival day telling us about the Farmers Matket and top restaurants.

Perfect week

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a lovely stay at Pointe Santo in D-47. We enjoyed every aspect of our week, from the comfortable, clean, and well-equipped condo, to the sunny warm weather, to the beautiful beach and grounds of Pointe Santo. This condo's rooftop terrace is such a unique feature providing the most beautiful views. We appreciated all of the extras around the condo: beach towels, beach chairs & toys, laundry detergent, saran wrap, aluminum foil, salt & pepper, spices, flashlight, etc...that many condos do not provide. It truly was a home away from home. The owner Dave is so personable, caring & attentive. He offered great suggestions regarding restaurants and the farmer's market. Pointe Santo is located at the southernmost point of the island, where you can see both sunrise and sunset from its beach. What a perfect way to start and end each day. We are already looking forward to our return to this condo next March!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your lovely review, Amy! We're glad you appreciated the many "extras" in our condo, and the personal attention we can provide by living five minutes from Pointe Santo. We try to eat at all the restaurants so we can provide our personal opinions on them. We're especially pleased you've already decided to come back for the same week next year! Dave and Sandy

Great stay at Pointe Santo

  • 5 of 5

Though we've stayed on Sanibel many times before, and in different complexes, this location - and unit - is now at the top of our list.

The unit is updated, and features a nice rooftop deck accessed via a spiral staircase on the balcony. The kitchen and baths are completely updated, and I don't think we've ever seen a condo as nicely stocked with non-perishables , kitchen accessories and other extras as this one.

This is the kind of unit where you walk in, see the nice upgrades all over, and come to the conclusion somebody put a lot of thought into the design. Everything spoke of quality.

The owner (Dave) and I corresponded a couple of times beforehand, and his welcome call to us after our arrival was a wonderful gesture of hospitality.

As stated, though we've been visiting Sanibel for a while, Dave gave us some good restaurant tips on places we hadn't yet been made aware of. To top it off, he mentioned the Sunday morning Farmers Market as something to visit. We did, and what a hoot! We came away with produce, fresh seafood, fresh salsas and guac, breakfast goodies, even fully-cooked BBQ items! All of a sudden we were well-stocked with provisions for our week :)

I really appreciated the convenience of the location of the unit, from the assigned parking spot right next to the elevator, to the easy walk to and from once inside the building.

Overall a very peaceful complex, which is also refreshing. While the main pool area is on the small side, like everyone says, "it's Sanibel; people are here to enjoy the beach."

We're looking forward to visiting again!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the lovely detailed review, Al. We're glad you appreciate the attention to detail. Although the unit was perfectly nice while you were there, we've had people inside all this week taking care of things we thought needed attention - cleaning and re-grouting the showers, stretching the carpeting, touch-up painting, replacing the refrigerator - and much more. We're glad you found the Farmer's Market as much fun as we do. We're there every Sunday to get our provisions and often dinner to take out. We're delighted you'll be back next year and look forward to seeing you again! Dave and Sandy
