Overview

Florida South Central Gulf Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-6)

You’ve seen those luxury magazine spreads—now come live in one. Gorgeous granite kitchen, fabulous beach location, new tropical furniture, PC & printer, four flat-screen tvs, and so much more! You won’t want to leave.

This beach-level Pointe Santo condo is just steps away from the beach, pool and clubhouse, and ideal for families with children and and for adult couples traveling together. Everything you need for a perfect vacation is included. It has just been fully remodeled and professionally redecorated with tropical furniture in island colors. It features a fully-equipped luxury kitchen in a contemporary open plan. It sleeps six with a king-size bed in the master bedroom, queen and twin in the guest bedroom, and queen sleeper sofa in the living room. The master suite has a fully-tiled walk-in shower; the guest suite has a tiled combination shower/tub. It is equipped with four flat-screen TVs, surround sound, a PC, and high-speed Internet.

Pointe Santo's tropically landscaped grounds include swimming pool, hot tub, tennis, gas grills and a range of staffed children's activities. With one of the best beaches on Sanibel, it is the ideal location to enjoy the Gulf and collect shells. It is close to several golf courses as well as fabulous restaurants, shops, boating, and fishing.

Sanibel Island is the ideal family vacation spot. 28 miles of bicycle paths criss-cross the island and run right past the Pointe Santo complex. The famous Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge is nearby.

Families with Young Children: The Pointe Santo complex is a wonderful location for families with children. There is an onsite recreation program and many other vacationing families. Our condo is especially well equipped for young children, with no glass tops or sharp edges on tables, and stain-resistant fabrics on all furniture. We provide a collapsible crib, a booster seat, and bed rails.

Adult Couples Traveling Together: Many couples vacation at Pointe Santo. Our condo has two fully-equipped suites, with a king-size bed in one and a queen-size bed in the other. Both have private tiled baths. The condo is beautifully decorated with tropical furniture and fabrics. The kitchen is newly built with a contemporaty open plan, and is exceptionally well-equipped for people -- like us -- who like to cook.

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 South Central Gulf Coast

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.

Pointe Santo Unit E-2

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 recently stayed in Pointe Santo Unit E-2. The owners have done an excellent job in making the condo a great place to stay. We lacked for nothing in the kitchen, linens, beack towels, chairs, etc. The decor is lovely and the furniture and beds were very comfortable. The unit was very clean and well-kept. This may seem like a small point but we loved the convenience of the electronic door lock instead of keeping track of keys with our two teenagers. The location of the unit in the complex is great - very close to the beach and pool. It is hard to get a booking date for this unit because of its popularity so if you get a chance to book it... take it!!

Owner's Response: Hi Lisa, thanks for your nice review. Glad you appreciated the electronic door lock. It makes it easier for us as well as the renters, and provides additional security since the lock code is set for the individual stay and we don't give anyone the keys . Hope you'll be able to come back next year!

Perfect family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week at Pointe Santo in E-2 and it was fabulous! The Pointe Santo complex is very well maintained and the maintenance/information office staff is very friendly and helpful. E-2 had the perfect ground floor location. It was steps to the pool and the beach - you could see both from the screened in patio. It was convenient to drop things off/pick things up from the patio when switching from beach to pool. The condo is nicely done - the crown molding and lighting give it an extra touch of elegance. Decor is beachy and the condo is very spacious and comfortable. It was perfect for our family of 5! The condo is well equipped with everything you need from kitchen items to towels to beach toys/chairs/umbrella. I am picky when it comes to places to stay, and this was perfect for us! Dave was very responsive and helpful. We stayed on Sanibel/Captiva with no schedule for the week, and it was very relaxing. Luxury, Location, and Comfort is spot on! I would definitely recommend this condo!!

Girls getaway to paradise.

  • 5 of 5

This was our annual girls getaway. We (3 women, usually 4) felt comfortable from the moment we arrived. The location - very close to the Gulf and even closer to the beautiful pool - made it easy for us to enjoy every day to it's fullest. The wonderful kitchen made it easy for us to enjoy homemade meals - we loved the place so much that we only went out to dinner 2 times. I would recommend this place to my family and friends, in fact I already have.

Perfect Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four adults and infant thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful condo. We had seven beautiful sunny days to enjoy Saniblel/Captiva. Just steps to the beach and pool...fantastic. The condo is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. It was wonderful to have a pack and play, infant high chair, stroller, toys etc. Small details like the use/leave cabinet , i.e. salt, pepper, spices and extra paper towels, dishwasher detergent, trash bags, bug spray and miscellaneous items was great. The Sunday farmers market was amazing. We will definitely return to this unit and recommend to family/friends. Thank you Dave and Sandy.

Perfect Condo

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful condo! And we experienced it fully, as it was a wee bit rainy and chilly our week in FL. The unit is just as pictured on the website, in great condition, clean and well organized. We were very comfortable. This was our first visit to Sanibel, and we loved it. Even though the weather wasn't fabulous, we were well entertained -- all the on-island museums the Ding sanctuary exceeded expectations for small museum/environmental quality. We also really enjoyed an off-island tour of the Edison-Ford compound, about 45 min north and boat tour to Useppa Island. A kudo for how clean management keeps the pool and hot tub. Dave was great to work with ... he could give lessons in rental property management! In short, terrific!

Owner's Response: We're delighted you enjoyed your stay with us, Nancy. As you know, we had very unusual weather this January - more than 17" of rain when the normal amount is less than 2". We're delighted you explored and enjoyed some of our "Rainy Day Recommendations" -- because we live on the island, we take the time to explore them ourselves before recommending them to our guests. We're looking forward to your next stay with us. Dave
