About Ellen Ruland

Celebrating the New Year on the beach.

Ellen Ruland purchased this condo in 1995

Why Ellen Ruland chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We have enjoyed memorable family gatherings at Pointe Santo, beginning with our teen and preteen kids...and now, with three grandchildren.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sanibel is heaven on earth! These accommodations were more than we hoped for...there was plenty of room for three adults and one child. Everything we needed was included...washer/dryer, full kitchen, beach toys, games, flat panel TV and a beautiful lenai. Short walk to the pool and beach...close to grills, lots to do on the island from shopping, sightseeing, restaurants, beaching and shelling. We loved our vacation and are planning another trip next year to the same condo! I give this condo five stars out of five!

Beautiful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a very quiet, clean, and well-stocked vacation home. The quality of everything from kitchen dishes to living room furniture was top dollar. We were very pleased, with everything except communication with owner.

Fantastic Condo

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Pointe Santo complex on Sanibel Island in Aug, 2016. The weather was a little hot, but overall we had a wonderful time. The condo was clean and spacious. Our building was not the closest to the beach, but we could still see the gulf from our lanai. The grounds were well maintained and the pool was nice. Enjoyed the activities in the club house (ice cream sundaes, crafts). The small lagoon has a young gator living in it that was fun to watch. Loved the island and the overall atmosphere. Will definitely return again.

Excelent Condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Condo was recently renovated and had many amenities like granite countertops, upgraded tile, upgraded appliances, and flat screen tvs. We spoke to the owner personally and had nothing but great experiences with her. Facility was well kept and maintained. Beach was close, grills work great. Condo was close to shopping and restaurants.

Outstanding !!

  • 5 of 5

As always, we were impressed with our stay. Upon arrival we noted the air conditioning wasn't working and with a few hours it was fixed. We recived a personal note from Ellen.

Our accommodations fit our families needs. The new beach chairs were put to good use.

We spent many hours on the beach shelling and found an impressive 15 inch conch on our last night. We are already counting down the weeks until we return next summer.

Beautiful ground floor condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at D-1 in late May/early June, and loved the location and condo amenities. Staying on the ground floor is always the best - because you have easy access to the pool, clubhouse and the beach! The condo was beautifully furnished, and well stocked with everything you would need for the week. It was clean and well maintained.

We spent much of our time sitting and reading on the lanai, which offered a lot of comfortable seating as well. Ellen is so great to work with on her rental!

We highly recommend visiting Tarpon Bay Explorers for their tour, Ding Darling for the wildlife drive tour, and eating at Cheeburger Cheeburger, Doc Ford's, Timber's and breakfast at Over Easy Cafe.

Sanibel is a ten mile long, one mile wide barrier Island on the Gulf of Mexico, just off the coast of Fort Myers in Southwest Florida. Arthur Frommer has named it his personal favorite place to vacation.

Step back in time to the way Florida was meant to be. There are no high rise buildings allowed. No buildings can be taller than the trees and are set back to keep the beach natural and tree lined. Much of the Island was set aside for wildlife and nature preservation. Yet, along Periwinkle Way, Sanibel's Main Street, there are countless restaurants, shops, bike rentals, two large supermarkets, and a CVS pharmacy. There are twenty four miles of bike paths covering the Island and you can walk for uninterrupted miles along the shell strewn, white sugar sand beach.
