|Minimum Stay||1 - 3 nights|
Sanibel Condominiums is located directly across the street from the beautiful Gulf of Mexico and 2.5 miles from the heart of Gulf Shores. Directly behind this complex lie the eight mile Little Lagoon waters. Sanibel lies in a low density, mainly residential area and offers a large outdoor pool and hot tub with plenty of sunbathing space for everyone. A fitness center and sauna are also available for your enjoyment. Bring your jet skis and fishing rods and walk three blocks down to West Pass for some fishing action. Make many family memories while you help the kids drop crab baskets, find perfect seashells and play in the surf of the warm Gulf waters. This condo allows monthly reservations November 1 - March 15.
My family and I (wife, kids, parents, mom-in-law, 7 total) stayed here on what was our first trip to the Gulf Shores area. We couldn't have been more pleased with the condo. We loved how it seems secluded from the rest of the hustle and bustle of the area, just because you're re an extra mile or so down the road towards Fort Morgan.
While this condo is NOT directly on the beach, it is a short few minute walk (loaded down with all your stuff) across the parking lot and street. And because it's not the "busy area" the beach was never overly packed.
For the condo itself, it was one of the few I found with 3br (all queen or king), and 3 full bathrooms in its price range. The decor was very nice, but not overly done. The patio furniture was very sturdy and comfortable (compared with the plastic stuff I saw at other places driving around). On the 10th floor you have a WONDERFUL view of the water as you look over the short beach houses. There's nothing obstructing your view at all! The ONLY thing I wish might have been a bit better is faster wifi. We had brought an Apple TV for a movie night and couldn't ever get anything to load. Not a huge issue. Next time we'll just load the movies on a laptop and connect directly to the tv!
A few recommendations around town:
Flip Flop Deli Shop - great husband and wife team, and a mean sandwich. Also has actual, HUGE shaved ice.
LuLu's - the kids loved the atmosphere and the food was great.
Shrimp Basket - all you can eat huge popcorn shrimp.
We will DEFINITELY be back, and I can't see any reason we wouldn't try staying here again.
