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 2007

Why The Owner chose Florida

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

E-2 is on the ground floor of a beach-front building, and just a few steps from the beach and the pool. It has been fully remodeled and professionally decorated to luxury standards, with a beautiful kitchen fully equipped for people who like to cook, four flat-screen TVs, a PC, printer and high-speed Internet. 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.'

Absolutely outstanding accommodations and location

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for outstanding accommodations with every modern amenity possible, we recommend this condo. My wife and I really needed a break from stress and we would have had a low tolerance for any hassle or disappointment with our Jan 2009 trip to Sanibel Island. We had a fabulous time in E-2 at Sanibel Pointe Santo, virtually on the beach and a short bike ride to a grocery store with an excellent wine selection. The accommodations were outstanding - recently remodeled to the highest standards with a lot of thought put into design. A true chef's kitchen. Great HDTV with LCD TVs in every room and a home theater system in the main room. Broadband and wireless internet and free nationwide Skype phone. I thought the condo was even better than the owners description. You will be very pleased with the attention giving to the lighting throughout the condo - high tech controls and very nice design features. My wife and I occupied the condo on our own, but we were very impressed by the quantity and quality of toys available for young children - we wished we had our grandchildren with us. I found it interesting that owners of such a luxury condo with expensive furnishings and fittings are happy to share their condo with families with young children - very commendable. Needless to say the property was immaculately clean. The condo complex appeared very well managed to us. The staff were busy going about their duties and unobtrusive. I was impressed with the cleanliness of the pool and the gas barbecues. This was a very relaxing vacation for us - exactly what we needed. We spent many evenings sipping fine wine and watching peaceful sunsets with like-minded couples.

Great condo! Easy fun vacation

  • 5 of 5

This condo is super well-equipped for a fun family week. We ate most of our dinners at home as well as breakfasts (took a break from the beach during the heat of the day to enjoy Doc Fords, Island Cow, Cips to name a few). They have all the beach equipment you need such as chairs, towels, toys, etc. The furnishings are great and they had a great attention to detail. We have stayed at Pointe Santo before but loved being on the bottom walk-out unit so our kids could easily pop back to the room for a snack or to grab another toy. Thanks for another wonderful family vacation in Sanibel.

steps to the beach and pool

  • 5 of 5

Dealing with Sandy and Dave was a pleasure from booking to follow-up after our stay. Some of our favorite things about this booking, compared to others, were the "take some leave some" cupboard (seems small, but it is a really nice perk), all of the beach toys/chairs/towels, and the easy access to the beach and the pool. The kitchen was well equipped and the grills on property were great. We enjoyed the farmers market, shelling, and relaxing on the beach! When we exited the condo, we left a small note with a few items that were needed (light bulbs, batteries, etc.) and weeks after our stay, Dave made sure we knew he had taken care of the items we listed. It is obvious Dave and Sandy care about the condo and their reputation as owners. Well done.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the lovely review, Missy -- we're glad you enjoyed your stay. And thanks so much for leaving the note about several things that needed attention. We always tell our guests "we don't know about those things unless you tell us" so we're delighted you took it seriously. We took care of most of them before the next guests arrived, and the rest over the next few days. Dave and Sandy

Summer vaca

  • 5 of 5

We love Florida in the summer as our waters are too cold for an enjoyable week. We have stayed in Sanibel a few times and this condo is the best by far. The proximity to the beach, the comfortable beds, the amazingly stocked kitchen, and the location were a few of our favorite things. Dave was a great host and very accommodating. We loved every minute of our week.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words, Maureen. We're delighted you enjoyed your stay in our condo. Our house is just down the road from Pointe Santo so we're very "hands-on" to support families staying at our condos. Jim, our property manager, is always on call to help with any problems that might come up. Hope you'll come back to stay with us again! Dave and Sandy
