About the property

2BR / 2BA/ Loft Condo

#2F Villa Sanibel on luxurious West Gulf Drive - A spacious two story vacation home with a beamed wood ceiling and clerstory windows under the roof that give this condominium unit an airy and luminous feeling. The two bedroom, two bath apartment with loft is fully furnished with all linens (including beach towels) and kitchen utensils. The master bedroom contains a king-size bed, with queen bed in the second bedroom and a day bed with a pop-up trundle in the loft, which overlooks the living room area.

Our complex, Villa Sanibel, a twenty unit oceanfront complex, was re-modeled extensively - inside and out - in 2006. The pool was re-surfaced and a cobblestone patio installled in 2005. The tennis court was re-done then as well. Inside the new kitchen has new appliances, including a side by side refridge/freezer with ice and chilled water through the door and granite counters. Having only 20 units the property offers quiet and privacy with the famous beach only steps away.

Amenities : *dishwasher



*Fridge/freezer with ice & chilled water

*full size washer & dryer

*televisions with DVD players in both living room and master bedroom

*cable with premium channels

In addition to the air-conditioning, there are three ceiling fans for comfort in all seasons. A screened-in lanai for dining overlooks the pool and garden.

Activities:: One of the best shelling beaches in the world is right outside the door. The Beachview Golf Course is two minutes away and shopping, restaurants and theaters are nearby, easy to reach by car or by Sanibel's lovely and safe bike path which runs right by the complex. The Bailey Tract of the Ding Darling Nature Preserve is within walking distance and wildlife is always nearby with dolphins, tortoises, osprey, ibis, etc. sighted daily.

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

The place was really nice, very comfortable and great to be so close to the beautiful beach. The condo was spacious and was plenty of room for several of us. The information provided was also really helpful in finding places to eat and fun things to do. I will definitely return many times.

Excellent location and condo

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was for two weeks. This condo is in an excellent location on the beach and a bike ride away from shopping, restaurants, grocery, etc. The condo was very comfortable and clean with everything we needed. The owner was outstanding to work with. Décor needed a little updating and there were a few very minor maintenance items. All in all a great place to stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for saying such nice things! I am delighted you enjoyed your stay at our condo on beautiful Sanibel Island. Our condo is right at the mid-point of the island where the shelling is at its best, and the location makes it a great place to see everything the island offers. With the bike path right across the street it's extra easy to get around. Each year we do a little up-dating and redecorating so it will be even more comfortable for your next visit. We want to keep it furnished with those things that will make you feel like you're at home but still create a away-from-it all atmosphere. Our association is always committed to keeping the grounds in beautiful shape and the pool and tennis court ready to offer our guests lots of fun and a great place to meet new friends. Hope to see you back again!

We didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

Great location on the Island, close to grocery store and shops, yet secluded enough to be very quiet. Just steps to the beach and a great view of the pool from the lanai. We ate every meal on the lanai and my kids loved watching anyone in the pool. Pool is large enough. Grill at pool area. Bedrooms are large. Plenty of beach tools to use. We were there two weeks and really did not want to leave.

The only issue we had was that the allocated parking space is in an unfortunate spot. Our car got hit and scratched on day 2 and an owner of another condo told me he has seen many cars get hit in that spot. We parked in the visitor spot the remaining time which was not a big deal at all.
