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

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

Wonderful Stay in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The condo was everything that we expected and more ! It was well equipped , very clean and truly beautiful. The location could not be surpassed . As one of our tin 9 year old granddaughters said during our stay..." Another Day in Paradise " It truly was a fantastic vacation spot and Susie enhanced the vacation with her suggestions for meals and things to see and do.

Owner's Response: We advertise white glove treatment for our guests. Some have been to Sanibel but for many it is a first visit. We live on Sanibel and can give suggestions for things to do and restaurant tips. Many want to know...where do the locals go? I am always available by text, phone or email to do what we can to insure our guest has a wonderful visit to Sanibel. Thanks to this guest for a 5 star review! Susie

Susie, your home could not have been more perfect for our vacation! From the incredible view and close proximity to the beach, to the furnishings and very complete appointments, it was the nicest propert we have ever rented. I appreciated your attention to detail in all aspects of the property. We also enjoyed all of the beach furniture, umbrellas and other beach "toys" that were included for our enjoyment. The covered parking was a nice bonus!

We have a parrot that we missed while we were away, so we spent a lot of time at Jerry's making friends with all of the parrots there!

It was a great vacation! Your home and Sanibel Island are terrific!

Owner's Response: Wow...our guests truly enjoyed our beach condo. We always enjoy hearing from a guest and know they had a great time. We purchased this condo 23 years ago and it is still our goal to provide an amazing Sanibel experience. Many guests comment they walk up and down the beach and confirm ours is the closest to the beach. Our guests are special and we appreciate them. Susie

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a wonderful week in Sanibel in a perfect location! The condo is just as advertised - the views are amazing and the beach is within just a few steps - saw turtles, dolphins, and of course, collected lots of shells. Everything you need is inside the condo, including the gear for the beach. The location is good - within a very short drive to many shops and restaurants. We also appreciated the covered parking. The owner is an absolute joy to work with - very responsive to our questions before the rental and called us before we arrived to let us know it had been cleaned from the previous guests and ready for us to arrive. She also checked in during our stay to make sure everything was going well. I would definitely recommend and come back to this condo again - thanks for a wonderful week of relaxation - we wish we could have stayed longer!
