Sanibel Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Gulf Beach is a 14 unit condominium situated on 4 acres with 300 feet of property width. The condo is on the pristine Sanibel beach for wonderful smimming, shelling, and surf fishing. From the lanai you can enjoy direct viewing of the beach and Gulf, and of course feel the warm sea breezes. There is a large, heated fresh-water swimming pool for the exclusive use of the 14 condos.

The Gulf beach here is quiet with room to spread out, because the nearest public parking is more than a mile away. We provide beach chairs, lounge, umbrella, and kids' sand toys for your use. We also have 3 bikes for your use to explore the island.

Our condo has been newly renovated. The entire unit has been repainted. The bathrooms are all new with tumbled tiling and lighting. The living area is newly tiled with all new living room furniture. The bedrooms are newly carpeted. And, the kitchen is stunning with the installation of new kitchen lighting, granite counter tops, appliances and kitchenware.

Why The Owner chose Sanibel Island

For generations my family has been coming to Sanibel to relax, restore, and connect. I used the inheritance from my mother to purchase this legacy. Come, share our retreat... and enjoy the condo, beach, shelling, sun, bikes, and fishing. Have a wonderful time!

What makes this condo unique

We love to stroll the beach for shells, explore tidal pools, witness the sunrise and sunset, float with the current to the lighthouse, enjoy the island food, cast a line into gulf water, travel by bicycle, browse at the many quaint shops, and visit the shell museum. We offer our Sanibel condo for your holiday... ENJOY!

Beautiful condo!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful week and I would highly recommend it to others!! It was only my husband and I this time, but you could definitely take up to six people (as long as two don't mind sleeping on the sleeper sofa) and you would have plenty of room. The inside of the condo is beautiful and has everything you will need for your stay. We enjoyed the quiet of this complex as there are only 14 units and so we never had any problem finding a chair at the pool or space to spread out on the beach no matter what time of the day we went to either. The owner has provided three bikes as well as lots of beach chairs, umbrellas and toys for you to use - it was awesome! We definitely hope to return again!!

Nice and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Sanibel many times, always having to come down during high season Spring break weeks. Luckily, the MIL rents a house every year, so it's been awhile since we rented a condo. My husband and I decided to spend our Anniversary in Sanibel, so we decided to find a condo on the beach. There are several things about Gulf Beach that make it a great choice - it is a very small complex, with just one building containing 14 units. The reason this is so great is that there is a nice stretch of beach that will end up being used by so few people. When I walked down the beach, other spots were mobbed (even during the off season) because there were clumps of building with tons of condos all sharing the little beach frontage. 106 was a great choice for us because it was relatively cheap, and we saved even more money by not having to rent bikes that can cost a couple hundred dollars per week each. The 106 storage locker is jammed with beach chairs, sand and beach paddle toys, floaties, shelling nets (and now beach umbrellas that we left) and the like, so don't buy anything. You will have everything you need. The condo is totally fine - it was very clean when we arrived and it has everything you would need. The units on the second floor of this condo might have a little better views of the ocean, but we still really enjoyed sitting on the lanai and having a cocktail. The owner of this condo was quick to respond to our rental request, and everything was handled by Sanibel Holiday and they were great to deal with and there is you need anything. We had great weather, but there are a ton of board games, books and videos in the unit if you were to have rain. The east end of the island is great - a little quieter. You can quickly bike down to lighthouse beach to watch the sunrise and I would seriously recommend that.

50th birthday celebration with the girls

  • 5 of 5

We loved Gulf Beach 106! Right on the beach, which was pretty empty during our week. We had the pool to ourselves also. The condo is beautifully decorated and well equipped; although we only dined in one evening, there was everything you needed. Beds were very comfortable, we all had a relaxing week. Beautiful view from the screened in patio! We even took the bikes out for a ride. Did I mention the shells? So much fun shelling, if you skipped over one, there was always another one on the next step. We filled our week with the Key West Ferry, a day trip to Sarasota (my daughter just graduated from college there), dinners at The Bubble Room and The Mucky Duck in Captiva. Just can't say enough wonderful things about our visit to Sanibel and no better place to stay than Gulf Beach 106! There was an elevator which helped with unloading our things. Thanks for sharing the condo; hope to return again soon.

Best Kept Secret!

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed on Sanibel for several years but this was the first time we stayed on the East end of the Island. We especially enjoyed this great condo. It was nicely furnished and everything we needed was thoughtfully provided, including an unobstructed view of the Gulf! Access to the beach and the bike path was very convenient. We were there during the island's busy, high season and really appreciated the quiet, peaceful location of Gulf Beach. The reservation process was very easy and we felt welcomed by both the owner and the rental management agency. We look forward to staying at this condo in the furture.

A perfect condo

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent December 10-19 in this beautiful condo. It was everything and more than described, completely new throughout. The kitchen was lacking for nothing. The weather was cold for SW Florida, but it was colder in Missouri. We beachcombed every single day and it was unbelievable after the "winter storm". The beach was just steps away. The property is very well manicured and kept up. We were impressed and would not hesitate to recommend this property.
