Overview

Sanibel Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Weekly Saturday to Saturday rentals. Sundial B307, my 1-bedroom condo at the Sundial on Sanibel Island has direct Gulf of Mexico views. Newly remodeled and professionally decorated with all new furnishings and artwork in 2011. Rent owner direct and save over adjoining Sundial Resort rates. Our condo has a direct oceanview (only a few steps to the beach), large screened lanai with sliding glass doors that open to the full width of the condo to allow for sea breezes and sounds of the surf. The condo is equipped with full kitchen: (refrigerator, range, dishwasher, disposal, microwave, coffeemaker, coffee grinder, electric juicer, blender, toaster, wine chiller and much more than you usually find in rentals). Sundial B307 offers a completely separate bedroom (not folding doors), washer/dryer, ceramic tile flooring, crown molding, and corian/granite countertops and more upgrades.

To make you feel at home, we have a washer/dryer in unit, ceiling fans as well as air conditioning, hair dryer in bath, two cable TVs--2 flat screen TV's, DVD with small library, stereo, binoculars, wooden high chair, beach towels, beach chairs, umbrella, beach toys, and two bicycles on loan. Free wireless internet, too.

This includes beach access, 4 condo swimming pools, wireless internet, BBQ grills and shuffleboard. Open to the public at adjoining Sundial Resort . . .tiki bar, restaurant, pizza & ice cream kitchen, Bailey's Marketplace, tennis (fee), spa services, and Sanibel Sea School.

Pamper yourself on vacation and don't settle for a discounted unit with outdated decor or no view. This is the best of both worlds. . .deal directly with the owner with the safety of the Sanibel property manager that handles accounting, key pick-up and emergency maintenance issues. See also 2-bedroom condos Sundial B306 or Sundial F401 and Maui Kaanapali Villa 146. If calendar shows open, then I either have this condo or a similar condo available.

About Candy Harris

Candy Harris from Rochester Hills, Michigan. Candy is a realtor with Real Estate One in Michigan and also a Board member at Sundial of Sanibel. My son Ryan of Birmingham, Michigan also loves Sanibel and enjoys vacationing here.

Candy Harris purchased this condo in 2001

Why Candy Harris chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We first vacationed at the Sundial in 1990. It quickly became our family's favorite vacation destination. We took the plunge 4 years later and bought Sundial G106. Since then we have bought and sold several condos to get closer to the Gulf of Mexico. Thanks to Hurricane Charley in 2004, our condo was completely remodeled. At that time, we added upgrades to the unit--ceramic tile floor, crown molding, sliding glass doors that open the full width of the condo and removed the accordian door and made the bedroom separate. In 2013 we remodeled bath to add a step in shower. We also own F401 and B306 (next door), both 2-bedroom/2 bath condos at the Sundial.

This is a popular condo and any cash flow I have goes back into updating and refurnishing the unit.

What makes this condo unique

The beach, the beach, the beach. When we first vacationed on Sanibel, my then 6-year old son was up before dawn looking for shell 'treasures' on the beach. It was a magical place for our family. It's so relaxing. The big decision for the day is where to go for dinner. Over 40 restaurants to chose from, but no McDonald's, traffic lights, or high rises. Ellen Creager, travel writer for the Detroit News stayed in B307 when writing a feature on Sanibel. Sanibel Island was named by famed travel writer Arthur Frommer as his #1 favorite place in the world (over Paris, Bali, NY, etc)

Perfect romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I found this condo to be a perfect getaway setup. It was comfortable and had everything we needed. You could see the ocean from the bedroom! The ocean and pool were a short walk away. I especially liked walking on the beach early in the morning and looking at the wide variety of shells. The pool was never crowded and the lounge chairs seemed new. The pool was even furnished with umbrellas! Sanibel Island has many restaurants with outstanding food. I just couldn't seem to get enough fish! I recommend this condo on Sanibel to any couple, young or old. We hope this condo is available again next year.

Exquisite condo , ocean front

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the condo for a week and had such a relaxing time. The condo had an amazing layout, and the view to the ocean was breathtaking. The doors opened up in the living room and bedroom to the large balcony. The balcony was furnished with layout chairs and a small bistro set. You could hear and see the waves from the balcony. The kitchen was fully equipped, couches comfy, and bedroom had plenty of room with a king bed. We had plenty of linens and the beach equipment was in great shape. There were multiple beach chairs and a nice umbrella. The condo pool and pool furniture was nice too. We would definitely come back to this fully furnished, well cared for condo and would recommend it to our family and friends.

Nice studio, very close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

The studio is very nice especially for 2 people. The beach is very close, you can walk to it in your bathing suit. You will need a car, there is parking available for no extra fees.

Super condo

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic view from the living room, kitchen and master bedroom. The condo is well appointed and the check in flawless. There was even a high chair and pack-n-play. Condo had beach chairs, beach towels, and just about anything you would need for vacation.

Heavenly place

  • 5 of 5

This was my third time on Sanibel Island, and by far my best experience. My husband and I stayed at the Sundial Resort (condo b307). The ocean view was spectacular and we were close enough to hear the waves at night. The condo was clean and creatively decorated. We will definitely repeat our visit!
