Pointe Santo is Sanibel’s finest condominium complex.

The luxurious master bedroom has a king size bed over which is a palm leaf fan to keep you cool. Both Bathrooms have been recently remodeled with granite vanity tops. There are also flat screen TV/DVDs with HD TV cable in the Bedrooms and wireless internet access throughout the Condo and surrounding grounds.

About Marcelle Bennett

We visited Sanibel for the first time over twenty years ago and have since spent most of our holiday time on the Island. We are a UK based family living in a small Village in the centre of England. We try to spend at least two months each year in Sanibel enjoying biking, shelling, tennis, Ding Darling, the restaurants, the weather and pure relaxation. This, without any doubt is our favourite holiday destination.

Marcelle Bennett purchased this condo in 2005

Why Marcelle Bennett chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Pointe Santo de Sanibel is without any doubt one of the best holiday destinations on Sanibel Island. It's central location at the southern tip of the Island makes it very accessible to the best beaches, wildlife preserves, shopping and restaurants whilst being in a tranquil and peaceful location with just the sound of the waves, the wildlife and the palm trees around the complex. Pointe Santo and its grounds are beautifully maintained and their are a wide range of Condo's to choose from all looking towards 600 feet of white golden sand. There is an on site Recreation Manager who organises a wide range of children's activities throughout the week and there are also well maintained tennis courts and and BBQ grills. You can relax on one of Pointe Santo's beach chairs all day looking out to the Gulf and in the evening you can walk down the beach to the nearest restaurant and enjoy a wonderful meal. Pointe Santo is a wonderful family holiday destination as well as being a place for a romantic holiday or just a place to relax and unwind. When you talk to other Pointe Santo visitors you will probably meet people who have been returning sometimes in excess of twenty years and even some adults who visited as children. Pointe Santo is very special and very different from most US holiday destinations.

What makes this condo unique

We have stayed in various units in Pointe Santo and we decided to buy B36 when it was marketed for sale; we simply fell in love with it. The Gulf front units at Point Santo are nice, but most only have a view of the sea and at night nothing. B36 has the benefit of both near sea views and views into the lagoon and the beautifully maintained Pointe Santo grounds. As we enjoy eating out in the Lanai throughout the year, this combined with the luxurious accommodation were key reasons for choosing to buy our Condo.

Our Condo is our second home. It is not a typical rental in that it is beautifully furnished and extremely well equipped. Most of our Guests are surprised by the quality and comfort.

We enjoy dining on the Lanai in the daytime overlooking the Gulf and the Pointe Santo grounds. In the evening, the mood changes whilst having a candlelit dinner looking down into the attractive grounds. Our Condo is also ideally suited for beach walkers and shell collectors in being able to walk either east or west along one of Sanibel's best beaches on its southern tip. Similarly, in being centrally positioned on the Island, we are able to take full advantage of the Islands 24 miles of bike paths. We are well positioned to bike ride to Ding Darling Wildlife Reserve and also east to the Sanibel Lighthouse. The central location is also useful for ease of access by bike or car to a wide range of restaurants. We also enjoy an early morning game of tennis followed by swimming and the hot tub just yards from our Condo. We also enjoy lazy days having a BBQ lunch in one of Pointe Santo's Tiki Huts and crashing out on the beach chairs in the afternoon, knowing that the Condo is handy for cocktails and the odd treat.

A unique benefit is knowing that just a few yards away from our Condo, we have an on site Property Manager there to help you whenever required. Only a handful of Condo's at Pointe Santo have this unique service.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

This condo was very clean, plenty of room an was well supplied with what could possibly be needed for our stay. Screened in Lanai was wonderful. Very peaceful, laid back enviroment an is family oriented. Condo very convenient. Owner makes a great effort to make sure her guests are happy an satisfied with their unit an wants to make sure that the unit is what you expected. If you are a germ a phobe you must stay here. This is one of the cleanest most peaceful relaxing condos I have ever stayed in. Get any needed groceries at Jerry's located on island. If you are going to be out at night take bug sprays. We will definitely be back.

Such a fantastic week!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a fabulous week at our stay in Sanibel at B36. The condo was clean, updated and had additional items not expected with a rental (beach chairs, beach towels, beach toys, kitchen amenities). We would highly recommend this unit to any families - it was perfect! The owners even called to check in on us when there was a power burst at the unit (albeit, very short) due to weather, to make sure everything was going well.

Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

This condo is 100% as described. I would highly recommend. Owners are very nice ( even though we have never met). It seems like we have know them forever. Kitchen was fully stocked with appliances and gadgets galore. Washer and dryer really come in handy. Pool very clean. This is the first time we have been to Sanibel and will not be the last. There was lots of storage in this unit. The lanai is very relaxing to have any meals or just to enjoy a glass of wine. We went for a relaxing get away and that is exactly what we got. Thumbs up for this rental. Can not wait to return.

This is Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

I love this condo! This was my second year in B36 & I recommend it highly! It's beautiful & comfortable. The condo has all the immenities of home including a fully equipped kitchen & much beach parphanilla! I promise you will lack nothing while staying in this lovely home! The Master bedroom is very private & the master bath is lovely with lots of storage. I love the view from the lanai & spent many evenings there reading & enjoying a nice glass of wine or two! It's perfect! You can watch the sun come up in the morning on the lanai & walk down to the beach for the sunset. I highly recommend this lovely home for your next vacation destination! Pointe Santo is my favorite place to stay on Sanibel. B36 is the perfect vacation home for a family, a loving couple or a single person like me just wanting the perfect Sanibel getaway! And the shelling is pretty darn good too!

Heaven is EXACTLY where we landed for a week !

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful trip in every way. This was the first time we chose to rent a condo instead of go with a traditional hotel. Smart move! Not only was this place lovely in every way - loaded with all of the comforts of home and then some - we also enjoyed a huge savings! It was nice for four adults and a baby to have a home - not just a room. The kitchen was gorgeous and had everything we needed to cook gourmet meals. Loved the big fridge with ice maker that had crushed ice, too. Perfect for bevs on extra hot days. And every day was extra hot. Air conditioning and fans worked like a dream. Beds were comfortable and each bedroom had its own TV. Bathrooms were modern and pretty. The location could not have been better. Almost a walk away from Bailey's store and sandwiched just far enough in between the lighthouse and Captiva. I am a power walker so I loved the four mile walk each day to the lighthouse. My family LOVED the pool and the free wi-fi was an added bonus. The screened in lanai offered sweet views of the lake area and the gulf. Honestly, I can not imagine a better place and we all agreed that when we return THIS will be our new home. Thank you for sharing your lovely beach home with us.
