Mid-July on Sanibel

  • 5 of 5

We keep coming back to Villa Sanibel 3A for many reasons. We have tried other resorts and units in Villa Sanibel but prefer 3A because we have an assigned parking space right outside the entry door; we have no steps to climb since it is a ground floor unit; it is non-smoking; it is fully furnished; when we walk out thru the lanai, we are at the pool; just a short walk down the driveway and we are at the beach; there are several visitor parking spaces (unlike some other resorts); a short walk to the bike baths; a short bike ride to the grocery store, CVS and other shopping; and there is a BBQ right next to the pool . After trying several different weeks in June and July, we like the weeks starting after the 4th as a little quieter and meeting returning renters we met from previous years. Every year we have met different European travelers who have interesting info to share. Yes, it is hot in July but it is nice and cool in 3A. Sanibel Holiday manages the registration for 3A and is a great resource for information and assistance with personal needs. There are many good restaurants on Sanibel/Captiva and Sanibel Holiday as well as other guests at Villa Sanibel are great sources for recommendations. This year, relatives decided to rent another unit to experience all of what they have heard about Sanibel Island and Villa Sanibel. Much time was spent looking for unique shells to discuss and take home.

Christmas on Sanibel

  • 5 of 5

We spent the last two years over Christmas in this particular condo.The weather was perfect. We got to know several other people in Villa Sanibel during our stay. Everyone was very friendly and courteous.We can't think of a better place to spend Christmas with our family than on Sanibel Island.

Idyllic getaway

  • 5 of 5

An incredible experience. I hardly ever wanted to leave this designer condo. However it was a minute walk down a path to the beach. The pool area was spotless. We appreciated the short drive to Bailey's as we prepared for sunset at the beach. Wi-Fi, tv, appliances all topnotch. If I must say something negative, it would be to update the poolside chairs and lounges.
