Why Barb Kowalski chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We fell in love with Sanibel Island and purchased this beach front condo right after Hurricane Charley in 2004. We spent months putting this condo back together and have constantly upgraded since to ensure you enjoy the best beach views on the Island and have the vacation of lifetime in well maintained condo.

What makes this condo unique

The shelling is the best in Florida, watching the sunrise and sunsets, wildlife everywhere on an island that is 70% a nature preserve is what brings us back again and again. Then there are the bike rides and long romantic walks on one the best beaches in the world. The nightlife, restaurants and relaxing environment regenerate us. Talk to Caesar the parrot at entrance of Jerry’s grocery store. We cant do that in Chicago.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Some places are even better than you can imagine them.

Clean and Comfortable with a Fantastic View!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Sanibel after spending 20 years vacationing in Hilton Head, SC. We may have found our new vacation home! This condo is just as advertised. Very clean, has everything you would need for a weeks stay, including anything you would need for the beach or the pool. The only exception being beach towels. The Island is beautiful and the ocean waters are so calm you can float!

We were initially surprised by the screened in balcony-disappointed that perhaps the view would not be as nice. This property is also on the first floor. The first floor of this complex is raised so no obstructions to the view and you will most appreciate the screens when you encounter the bugs!! I like to leave the balcony doors open to hear the ocean, however found out the hard way that this is probably not a good idea at night as the "noseeums" can get through the screens. Yikes! I had several bites so left the doors closed the rest of the week after the sun sets!

We also found Sanibel to be a bit pricey (the on island grocery stores really jack the prices up) but they are so convenient. Jerrys is close by. We cooked in or ordered in several times to save a little money. The condo was so nice we did not miss leaving to go out!

The pool area was very clean and quiet. One afternoon I was the only person there and was able to use one of the floats from the owners closet without bothering anyone. Everyone we encountered was very nice.

Bill and Barb were so nice to work with! They sent us info about local restaurants, etc before we went and were available for any questions that we had. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Lisa, Thank you for the review!!! I am glad you enjoyed the condo and your stay, at our get away to paradise. I am glad you found everything both in the unit and "the fun" room on the ground floor for most everything you would need for the beach or pool. In the kitchen, I went above the required housewares list and added items I would want in a kitchen, The rental agency is responsible for the towels and linens. They have removed the beach towels from the units and rent them for a nominal fee out of the office. Also, for groceries my husband and I stop at either Public's grocery store or Super Target behind the outlet mall before we cross the bridge to the Island and leave the last minute items to purchase at Jerry's.. My husband Bill and I, enjoy hearing from our guest, and our constantly adding items and information to make your stay even better. Barb and Bill

Beautiful views of the ocean, well appointed kitchen. Has everything you could want. Loved how the wall opened up to the Lanai and the wall of glass opened all along the Lanai. The entire vacation was stress free, easy check in, quiet, peaceful. Wifi worked very well. This unit is well cared for and very clean and comfortable. We will be back!

Quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had such a wonderful time in Sanibel. This condo was absolutely perfect. We really enjoyed our nights sitting in the screened porch with a glass of wine listening to the waves. I loved waking up in the morning to the beautiful views of the ocean. We also rented bikes, and enjoyed the trails. We would definitely come back!

Hoping to return to this spot in paradise

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place! This was our first time on Sanibel and it is our new favorite spot! This condo was exactly as pictured and the view was amazing. The porch was screened so we could leave our sliders open and sleep to the sounds of the ocean. We loved to wake up early and walk toward the sunrise and pick up shells. We rented bikes for the week and enjoyed exploring on bikes. The condo has bike racks for storage. The owners closet had chairs, boogie boards, and pool noodles, although I understand this can change. The kitchen was well equipped. The pool was nicer that it looked in the pictures. Pretty landscaping surrounds the pool. We loved the fact that, even though it was Easter week, we never felt like the pool was too busy. The second bedroom was pretty tight but our 3 youngest were happy there, especially because they had their own tv to watch movies! I really can't say enough good things about this property! My parents stayed at a different condo complex and paid the same for a much smaller 1 bedroom, so I think ours was a great value!

Owner's Response: Debbie, Thank you for your review!!! I am so glad this is your new favorite place. We agree that view is perfect and I also enjoy listening to the ocean at night from the master bedroom. The sunrise is breathtaking and that is when I usually see dolphins about 100 feet out. I am glad you enjoyed the ground floor closet that we re-organize and restock when we visit, but it has been interesting because things come and go. The pool was recently improved with new patio furniture and landscaping, etc. I am glad you enjoyed it and the bike trails. We enjoy hearing from our renters and please let us know when you want to visit paradise again. Barb and Bill
