About Susie

Picture - Susie, husband David and granddaughters on the beach. We love Sanibel Island. There is so much to do such as shelling, boating, biking, enjoying nature and just relaxing. We purchased our condo in 1993 and many of our guests are repeat. We take the responsibility of providing a wonderful vacation spot seriously. Give us a try. You will be very pleased with our light, bright and breezy direct beachfront condo.

Susie purchased this condo in 1993

Why Susie chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Sanibel is a unique island. Truly a nature lovers sanctuary. Sanibel is wonderful if you are looking for a destination to relax on the beach, enjoy wonderful shopping, 28 miles of bike paths and great restaurants. 2/3 of the island is still undeveloped. If your interest is shelling - Sanibel is rated #3 in the world and #1 in North America.

What makes this condo unique

Great shelling, amazing floor to ceiling water views, condo closest to the beach, large comfortable condo, bike path in front of the complex, covered parking, a super condo in a wonderful location.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We love your condo! We would love to become part of those on your "regulars" list. Truly, this is a jewel box of treasures.

Susie's home was beautiful! Nicely decorated, clean, and had everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

This home is incredible! The sound of the ocean, view of the Gulf of Mexico and sandy beach made for a relaxing and fun vacation! The owner, Susie, was helpful and super responsive to all our questions. Her tips and info helped us to explore Sanibel and Captiva to the fullest! 5 stars!

Owner's Response: Thanks to our guest for such a wonderful review of our condo. The sounds from the gulf and the views are the best on the island. So many of our guests are repeat. We hope this guest returns again. I enjoy it when our guests request local information. I live on the island and know about the places to go and favorite restaurants. Susie

All That We Had Hoped For

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our 25 year old son stayed in Susie's condo in mid-April. We couldn't have been happier. My husband is not very mobile, so the incredible view from the lanai, so close to the beach, was a delight for all of us. And the short walk to the beach was perfect. It is a delight to have our morning tea on the lanai and watch the wildlife, both avian, and human.

The entire condo is beautifully maintained, spotlessly clean, and well supplied with a wide array of kitchen cooking appliances, etc. The bedrooms are lovely and comfortable, and each has it's own up-to-date bathroom. My husband and I particularly loved being able to leave the sliding door from our bedroom onto the lanai open a bit at night to hear the ocean. The living room is lovely and has floor to ceiling windows with a full view of the beach/ocean.

Susie is a wonderful "landlord" who always responded very quickly to any email or phone call.

This is a great place to stay if you want a totally relaxing beach vacation, or want to go out for other adventures. The condo has it's own large storage area with a good supply of beach furniture, strong beach umbrellas, etc. After renting bicycles for the week, my son and I found we were a mere 1 mile from a great grocery store

as well as nearby wildlife preserves. If you go, don't miss the guided kayak tour through the mangrove bay in the Ding Darling Preserve. There are several good restaurants within a very short car drive or lovely bike ride.

Finally, to cap of my glowing review, I must add that we came away so happy with our stay in Susie's condo, that we have reserved it for two weeks next Spring to celebrate my retirement!

good value

  • 4 of 5

Condo was exactly as advertised. We did have a problem but the owners responded in person and fixed it quickly. Location is both beachfront and close to the north end of Periwinkle.

Owner's Response: We own 2 fantastic direct view beach condos. They are side by side units in the Island Beach Club complex. This guest did have a valid problem with one of the 2 toilets in the condo. We did respond and tried to fix it. We decided someone must have dropped something in the toilet. As this review said we personally went to the condo to fix the problem. There were 2 guests and 2 bathrooms. One toilet was a problem which we attempted to fix as soon as we knew of the problem. This is our first review that is not 5 star. It is disappointing since we made every attempt to fix the problem. Note - this happened in our 220 unit and not this 230 unit. Another interesting note - The January 7th week was only available due to a cancellation. It was even rented at a reduced rate. Except for this 4 star review every other review for both condos are 5 star and most of our guests are repeat. Susie

Great Time

  • 5 of 5

Well I am writing the review on the condo lanai enjoying the sunrise. Great place with amazing views. They have all the beach equipment you could need and it is so easy to get to the beach. The web pictures very accurately describe this place. This condo location is primo in Sanibel. You can't get any closer to the water. Finally, Susie is wonderful! Time to go home...until next time.

Beautiful Condo - Great Vacation Experience

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely condo that met and exceeded all expectations. The condo was super clean, well equipped (we just needed to show up) and was exactly as promoted. The owners were so warm and kind at each step along the way and we truly felt like we were staying at a friend's condo vs it being a rental experience. We have told so many of our friends about it and simply cannot wait to go back again. This is 110% the full beach experience from the moment you wake up and hear and see the ocean to full days on the beach playing with all the beach toys from the storage room and collecting beautiful sea shells. Truly, pack your clothes, a good book and be ready to start relaxing immediately. This unit does not disappoint. THANK YOU for a wonderful 2016 vacation!

Owner's Response: This was a neat family. It was a joy to have them in our condo. We want each guest to love their stay and hearing from them is very satisfying! They sent a great picture of their daughter. We are so happy that they truly enjoyed their stay! Susie
