This was our first time visit to Sanibel Island. Upon arrival it was everything that we expected it to be. We were so pleased with our decision to stay in this condo, the unit is on the upper floor and it’s the last unit on the end with total privacy, you do not have to worry about anyone looking in your windows. Feels very secure!
My wife and I loved the de ’core and privacy of the unit, very beachy feeling and bright colors. (It feels like the tropics) The master shower was fantastic and plenty of room with a nice shower head, the beds were very comfortable and clean, the loft area was a great place to hangout. It was a very spacious and comfortable condo.
The back deck/lanai was private, you are not looking at someone else’s unit and no one can see you!! You can watch the palm trees sway in the tropical breeze while having your breakfast on the lanai, the place was very clean and even had extra chairs and an umbrella for us to use while on the beach.
The kitchen was stocked with all the necessary dishes and utensils, coffee pot and toaster, all we had to buy was our food for the week, (yes we did have to cook) lol... we have rented many places and found that this place had the same amenities as all the other rentals we have rented. It offers everything a person could possibly need and want, Includes a washer/dryer in the unit which is excellent
The pool was clean and at night the lights make the pool area make you feel like you’re at a luxury high end resort. We were treated to many little tiny lizards that would scurry across the paths in the complex as we walked around.
The beach at this condo is also a fun place to do some shelling, sun bathing, swimming and if you like to people watch, you can do that too!
This place is close to the market and you can get around the Island easy from this location.
We would love to stay here again when we head back to Sanibel and would highly recommend and encourage others to do so. The only thing that could have made our trip any better would have been being able to move in permanently. This condo and Sanibel are what we call little pieces of heaven. Enjoy!!!!
The property was clean and beds were comfortable. This condo is upstairs in the building furthest from the beach and still a very easy walk to the beach. The lanai faces some palm trees so it is very private; no views if you are looking for that. The location is near everything on Sanibel and we had two teens who were able to explore a lot on rental bikes, so that is a big plus. I would have preferred more lighting in the living area. The condo itself felt a bit closed in to me.
I would say the condo is quiet, except the refrigerator makes a constant noise that sounds like a flock of sea gulls. We are not TV watchers; instead we like to read thus we found the noise annoying and distracting. It was mentioned by many in the guest book, so I did not bother to call and report it. I assume the owners must be aware of it. We bought a cheese grater and left it there for future guests. I honestly haven't stayed in a week long rental with a more poorly stocked kitchen. I have NEVER arrived to find no coffee filters or salt/pepper. We cook a lot and had to buy everything. I assume the person who cleans the place takes the prior guests spices or throws them away so I found someone staying nearby and gave them most of our leftover grocery items. I even hid saran wrap and coffee filters in the very back of a drawer so the next guest might get lucky and have a little to start with.
Overall, not a bad place to stay. I will not stay here again b/c there are other places on Sanibel that I like better. I would be willing to try a different condo in this complex.
