About The Owner

We both grew up in Wisconsin, and visited Sanibel during our first year of marriage in 1980. This tropical island captivated us, and we have returned every year since. We found it to be a great place to vacation as our family grew. Unsurprising to anyone familiar with our Midwest weather, we visit Sanibel in winter to inspect and update our condo (and of course to soak up some sun!). We take pride in keeping our unit comfortable, convenient and regularly updated. We want you, our guests, to feel as at home in it as we do. Please enjoy! Kathy and Denis, Wauwatosa, WI

The Owner purchased this condo in 2000

Why The Owner chose Sanibel Island

We purchased our unit in 2000, after 20 years of visiting Sanibel and falling in love with its unique atmosphere. We liked the idea of owning a beach condo on a tropical island that is only a few hours away by air. We appreciate Villa Sanibel's smaller, more intimate setting where the beach, swimming pool and tennis courts are all steps away. Sanibel's reliably warm weather, shell-filled beaches, protected wildlife areas, and tropical island atmosphere are what attracted us to buy a piece of paradise!

What makes this condo unique

The number one attraction, the beach, is only ten steps from our stair landing. It takes about 60 seconds to replenish refreshments, get another book, or fetch more suntan lotion from the condo! We enjoy viewing the sunrise on the beach from our entrance porch (a good spot for morning coffee). It is easy to explore the island by hopping on the nearby bike path. Kayaking at the marina is a great way to see wildlife. There are restaurants for every taste and budget (Denis likes Doc Ford's for casual eating -- Kathy recommends the Mad Hatter for its gourmet dining). And nothing beats watching the sun set from the beach, with a favorite beverage in hand!

Love~Love~Love This Place!!

  • 5 of 5

Super Nice Condo!! Upstairs unit with only a few steps. Just steps from the ocean, so handy to come back and eat lunch, rest, restroom and re-apply sunscreen. Teenaged girls loved the loft with 2 twin beds. Very clean condo with comfortable beds. Condo was equipped with very nice kitchen utensils and cookware, hair dryers, fans for each room, lots of beach toys, floats, beach towels, beach chairs and umbrellas. Would have been nice to had canopy. We spent most our time at the beach, rented paddle boards. Also rented bikes and it was a great way to enjoy the island.

We had a great stay, would stay here again. Highly recommend this unit!!

Quiet, beautify location on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We were in need of a relaxing get away for two. The condo will easily sleep 6 comfortably, but was perfect for the two of us.

We thoroughly enjoyed staying in Kathy and Denis's Sanibel Island home. The condo is beautiful --- clean and well appointed ---with a spectacular location. We enjoyed early morning coffee on the porch, watching the sky warm up and people walking the beach, followed by breakfast on the lanai. Days were spent exploring the island on rented bikes, with afternoon/evening cocktails on the beach ---great beach chairs and umbrellas provided ---followed by a walk down the beach to see the sunset. The unit is just footsteps from the beach ---so convenient --- the beach area is uncongested.

The condo is very comfortable, with everything one needs. We didn't want to leave and hope to return. Denis and Kathy, thank you for a great vacation!
