Kay & Lee Bettenhausen reside in Southwest Florida. After experiencing the beauty of Sanibel during many vacations, we made Sanibel our home relocating from the Chicago area. Your vacation on Sanibel will become one of your most memorable. It is our desire for YOU to be OUR guest and experience this lush tropical island paradise called Sanibel Island.
Lee Bettenhausen purchased this condo in 1997
Sanibel Island is an unique place. It is a tropical paradise. A great place for a relaxed and refreshing vacation.
There is a 3 mile long causeway bridge connecting the island to the mainland. We call it the 'tension line', after crossing it you can leave the tension of the world behind.
Life is a beach when YOU cross the causeway bridges.
Our condo is designed and decorated to reflect an tropical island paradise. The views of the Gulf of Mexico are breathtaking
Our condo is one of the most private in the complex; no buildings directly across from our lanais. Two lanais; Living/Dining Room and Master Bedroom
Completely renovated in 2014
Elevator access only 150 feet from condo entrance
We had a very pleasant stay at this unit. It was very clean, extremely well-equipped. However, the view of the Gulf was a big disappointment--the pictures were taken before the trees grew much taller! Still, the walk to the Gulf is short and rather just look at it, walking on it is even more enjoyable! Yes, there was truck traffic in the morning even with the doors closed you could hear it but it was quiet until 7:30-8:00am when it is time to get up and enjoy the day anyway--not really a negative. The pool was warm, sparkling clean, plenty of chairs and tables. The check-in experience was fine--everyone in the office is helpful and pleasant. While you are reminded several times to take out the trash not until the email with check-out instructions (the day before check-out) is recycling mentioned. At that point, not seeing recycling bins or any mention of recycling in the unit we assumed they do not recycle at the complex. It was great fun digging through our trash, brushing coffee grounds off plastic, glass and paper so we could obey wasn't pleasant. Then when we got to the trash bins there weren't any recycling cans. When I mentioned this at check-out I found out that the recycling cans are in another trash area on the other side of the building. Perhaps a second trash can labeled "Recyclables" in the unit would be helpful. For that to be the only negative comment shows how great our stay was! Will definitely be back--hopefully next time we'll be able to stay long enough to read some of the books while we enjoy the screened-in lanai spaces! Thanks for sharing your wonderful piece of paradise!
Myself & 3 co-workers rented the unit while on Sanibel for a conference and it was perfect! Close to our conference, wonderful beach and pool! Would definitely love to return again for a family getaway!! The owners were easy to contact and extremely helpful!
This is a really nice spot but there are 2 things that prevented me from rating excellent. First, even though there is a kitchen we really couldn't cook anything since there were no supplies like sugar, salt, pepper, seasonings, ketchup, mustard, any basics whatsoever. Most every other place we have stayed VRBO has come with some of the basics. Second, it is right next to a stop sign intersection and the traffic noise at night, and particularly early morning with trucks is noticeable (since we slept with the windows/screen doors open. Maybe I am just too sensitive to the noise factor. Otherwise very pleasant, nicely set up with internet and TV. The staff at the office were excellent and made our stay extra easy with renting bikes, paying bills, printing out airline boarding passes, plus fixing immediately a broken light outside the front door. Nice location too. We used bikes rented on the premise for 99% of transportation around the island.
We were much anticipating our arrival in Sanibel and were looking forward to enjoying the view of the Gulf from a distance. When we arrived to check in, the staff were amazing and so helpful with answers to all of our questions. Up the convenient elevator we went, rolling our luggage on the thoughtfully provided luggage carts to our front door... and promptly forgot all about bringing it in when we got lost in the unexpectedly close up and personal view of the gulf! The pictures do not do the view justice. We ended up spending a lot more time sitting on our screened in porch than we expected to do. The condo was spacious and very well appointed, and pretty much spotless. Being in the industry we know what to expect with cleaning in a rental - and we were tickled pink! The location was fabulous - just a few steps to the beach and close to the causeway to get back to the mainland if needed. Bikes are available on property for rental, along with beach towels to purchase should you forget yours at home. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay and absolutely plan to return just as soon as we can. For those of you who can go, early May was the best time we have been - weather was beautiful - not a single drop of rain the entire time - and crowds were minimal. This should be rated a 20 on a scale of 1-10!
We had a great visit to this unit in April! The condo is lovely and well equipped. We enjoyed the balconies, beach, pool, tennis court and grounds. The island is perfect for bike riding and relaxing.
My mom and I had a wonderful stay at your
property and loved the area of the island you are
on. We rented bikes and were able to get almost
everywhere. It was a short walk through the
property to the beach each day and we throughly
enjoyed the proximity to the beach as well as the
grounds. The condo was well equiped, the pool
was nicely maintained and we would give it a
