Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6) - Saturday to Saturday rental only
As a child, I started visiting Sanibel in 1966. It became a family tradition to vacation here every year since. After getting married, my wife and three kids would take our annual holiday vacation on Sanibel. Eventually, in 2012, one of our wishes came true. We were able to purchase the exact condo we wanted. As a college professor and elementary school teacher, we are always struck by what we learn about ourselves and the island during our visits. And most importantly, we are grateful for all of the family members made on the beaches, from shelling to hiking to building sand castles. We prefer the tranquil east end with great shelling, walking on the beach to the lighthouse and fishing pier, bike riding on miles of scenic trails and fantastic fishing. We can never get enough of Sanibel! We think you will love it too!
Owner/Manager purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Owner/Manager chose Sanibel
Location! Location! Location! We love the quiet east end. With both gulf and bay beaches to enjoy and the lighthouse nearby, there's lots to explore within walking distance. Enjoy a short hike to Pinnochio's where you can taste award-winning ice cream and visit the Lighthouse Cafe next door for its world-famous breakfast. Our condo is also right on the bike trail to easily explore other parts of the island. We were drawn to the small size of the complex with its quiet pool and secluded beach. We also fell in love with the view and the light-filled, top floor corner unit. This unit, with its beautiful updates and perfect location, had everything we had hoped for and more.
What makes this Condo unique
In addition to what can easily be seen in the photos, we also appreciated how the guest bedroom can be closed off from the living area so guests can have their own private suite with bathroom. This is especially nice when there are two couples or extending family vacationing together.

Best Thanksgiving Ever!
The entire family had a wonderful Thanksgiving on Sanibel Island! It's just a short walk to the beach. The storage room contained everything you need; umbrella's, beach chairs, boogie boards, noodles, sand toys, etc, and a cart to haul it all. The pool was good size and heated, most days we had it to ourselves. The evenings & mornings were cool enough we had the doors and windows open, nothing like waking up to the sound of the ocean! We rented bikes and explored the island - paved bike trails all through the island. Be sure to do a boat tour. We went to Captiva and saw manatee and a couple different pods of dolphins - great experience! The property owner, Jeff, was very nice and attentive. We exchanged a couple emails where he provided some recommendations, he also called to check in when we got there, and sent a text message when we got home. Definitely recommend staying in this condo!!
Vacation at the edge of Paradise!
We were very pleased with the location of the condo. I couldn't wait to open the door and see that fabulous view of the Gulf of Mexico!! Very private and quiet location with lots of amenities including plush beach towels and plenty of beach chairs and umbrellas.
Record breaking heat (never got below 75 degrees)the week were there and storms in the Gulf the weekend we arrived causing a Red Tide, but it cleared up in a few days and the beach was cleared of debris.
Short walk to beach to watch sunrise/sunset and shelling was great. Kitchen is well appointed, but we only ate breakfast at the condo and enjoyed lunch and dinner on Sanibel and Captiva Islands.
Thanks to Jeff for checking in with us upon our arrival and departure. Also thanks to him and his family for sharing this beautiful spot with us. We will definitely be back soon!!
The location on the island is great. The owner even called and checked on us personally. Beds are super comfortable and the view amazing. If you cook a lot on vacay ,(I dont) the kitchen is well stocked. Thanks for a great week.
Perfect week at Gulf Beach 207!
We loved our stay at Gulf Beach 207 - the condo was updated, comfortable, in a great location and had a perfect view of the beach and ocean even from the couch! It's nice that the building has an elevator, although we didn't realize it until after bringing our luggage up the stairs. :) We appreciated that the owners included very nice beach chairs, umbrellas and towels during our stay. The owners and management company both checked in with us during our stay to provide suggestions and make sure we were happy with everything. We can't think of one thing we would have changed about the condo or our stay. We really hated to leave! Definitely recommend staying in this condo if it is available for your week!!
Property was lovely and quiet! Had a great relaxing vacation! Exactly what we were looking for.
We were pleasantly surprised to hear from the owner, he told us about the storage closet that had beach chairs and umbrella which was awesome for the beach!
Great oceanfront condo
We really enjoyed our stay at
Gulf Beach 207. It’s a very nice condo in a great location.
This beachfront property has a beautiful screened in lanai that overlooks the Gulf of Mexico. The view is fantastic. Walk down to the beach on the boardwalk and enjoy a day of building sand castles, shelling, swimming, reading, and walking the miles of sandy coastline. There is a storage closet filled with beach chairs, umbrellas, beach and pool toys, and other items to enhance your visit. Take a trip down the island at sunset to enjoy the gorgeous John "Ding" Darling Wildlife Sanctuary to see alligators, Roseate spoonbills and countless other species.
Many guests take advantage of the quaint paved bike paths traversing the island. Bike rentals can be delivered right to our unit. We have a covered bike rack for your convenience as well. Our unit is also close to the Sanibel Sea School, where you can drop off your kids for a day or a few hours while they learn about the amazing coastal ecosystems.
We take great pride in keeping our unit fresh and updated for your enjoyment. So many guests have written us notes and emails commenting on the amenities, location, and the beautiful "Pottery Barn" coastal cottage decor. Our goal is to have each guest create wonderful memories with friends and loved ones, at this place we call our Sanibel paradise.
