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)

Another lovely week in Sanibel!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time in B307 so it was nice to know what was waiting for us. Having beach chairs, an umbrella etc. was great. We feel this 1BR is a good value, though our growing family in St. Pete means a 2BR for us from now on! This is a great location and easy to get to our favorite shops and restaurants without getting stuck in traffic on Periwinkle. Last year we did the Sanibel Thriller, and this year the cruise to Cayo Costa to do some good shelling. The notebook for us has some good restaurant choices.

Amazing Stay in Sanibel at F401Sundiall!!

  • 5 of 5

All four of us loved the incredible location and view of F401 Sundial. My husband and I, my daughter and her husband stayed in this lovely condo with a direct view of the Gulf and beach and overlooking the pool. I loved going out on the deck every morning and sitting in the glider just looking out at the beach and people watching. The screened in porch was wonderful to keep the "No see Ums away" and the deck furniture was so comfortable to relax in at the early morning or the end of the day. The condo is beautifully appointed just as it is pictured with a very comfortable sofa as pictured in the living room a well designed kitchen and two bedrooms, a master with a king bed that is really comfortable and a guest room with two twins. I loved the fact that there were two bathrooms one with a shower and one with shower and bath. There was also a full dining room to eat breakfast and lunch in the room if we didn't on the beach. It's perfect for a family of four or two couples. I can't say enough about how beautiful the view is! Also, it is a two minute walk to the beach from the room and the pool is right there (with a bathroom so you didn't have to go back up to the room!). That part of the beach was lazy with not too many people. It definitely was not crowded which is definitely different from the Ft. Lauderdale Beach. So if you want a relaxing beach with gentle waves, this will be your cup of tea. The wildlife was amazing too. In the water, we saw live Sea Stars, sand dollars, rays, fish, clams, and lots of shells! I thought that it would be hard walking up 4 flights of stairs but there is an elevator in the middle of the building. So moving in and out was really easy as we could park the car right in front of the elevator. But if you wanted to get some exercise, you could walk up the stairs. Being on the 4th floor was great because of the view. I just loved the view!! Every morning I would get up and run along the bike paths, so it was really a healthy and relaxing vacation. We are definitely going back.

Total Escape

  • 5 of 5

Sanibel is a beautiful retreat from the world and this unit only enhances that. Our view was directly to the Gulf and so peaceful both day and night. The furnishings were what I've grown to expect from my upscale vacations to Sanibel. Thank you for the great accommodations.

Sanibel Island is a gem!

  • 4 of 5

Life on Sanibel Island is so relaxing. The beaches are not crowded, the shelling is wonderful and so is the dining. However, cell service is spotty at best and we had daily problems with the internet, so working remotely for us was difficult.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry you had trouble with the internet. I did provide you with the tech support number and suggested you reboot the modem. I stayed in the condo myself just a few weeks prior and did not have any internet trouble. I certainly will call the provider and have this corrected.

Sunny Sanibel was Super!

  • 5 of 5

My January visit to sunny Sanibel Island was wonderful! The condo was just steps from the beach. The sound of the waves from the Gulf lulled me to sleep each night. I enjoyed the view of the water from the balcony. Parking was convenient, and the elevator was handy. I found the condo spacious, modern, up-to-date, and with tasteful furnishings. Shopping and restaurants were a close drive. The washing machine and drier were convenient. The pool, and the barbecue areas were nice too. I enjoyed my stay.
