Overview

Florida South Central Gulf Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

Updated Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Our family fell in love with Sanibel from the first day we visited many years ago, and we’ve been returning ever since, building incredible memories at this island paradise. From the amazing sunsets to the world-class shelling to the beautiful nature preserves and white-sand beaches, the qualities of this island are outstanding. Each day seems to bring new experiences such as the occasional sea turtle sighting, dolphins near the beach, or the ever-changing serenity of the Gulf surf.

We love the island and we feel we found the perfect location at Sanibel Arms, on the Gulf side of the island, where we are just steps to a beautiful section of the beach. The 64 unit complex features tropical surroundings, great amenities, and helpful on-site management. Our location on the eastern end of Sanibel makes access to the causeway a breeze. The condo itself is comfortable and beautifully updated. It is a beachside condo in building D, with a partial view of the gulf from the balcony table and chairs.

Our condo was recently renovated and completely redecorated. This one bedroom unit has a king-sized bed. It has ceramic tile flooring throughout, and granite counter tops in the kitchen and bath. A washer/dryer is available in the unit for guest's use. TVs are provided in both the living room and bedroom, and wireless internet access is provided at no extra charge.

The complex has a clubhouse with business center adjoining a large, heated pool. A bicycle path links Sanibel Arms to the rest of the island, including the nature preserves, through 22 miles of paved trails. On-site bike rentals are available through the Sanibel Arms office. Watercraft enthusiasts will enjoy the docking privileges at the adjoining canal.

We believe this is the perfect island paradise. Our family invites you to be our guest to create your own incredible memories at our little piece of paradise.

About The Owner

We live in the midwest with its cold, snowy winters. We have always dreamed of getting away in the winter. We were able to retire early from our careers, and now look forward to spending part of each winter in Sanibel.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2011

Why The Owner chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We have visited Sanibel for years with our family and just knew this was the spot. We love what Sanibel has to offer--beautiful water views, gorgeous sunsets, fun beach activities and casual lifestyle.

With our family, everyone has their favorite activity. My wife and I revel in beach walks to see the sunsets and bicycling to the shops and incredible island restaurants. Our son has his greatest enjoyment fishing from the beach or docks in the refuge waterways. Our daughters love sunning on the beach, shelling, and shopping at the many quaint shops.

What makes this condo unique

We are delighted with the location of our condo. Our complex is right on the beach; the bike path is just across the street; the boat dock has access to the gulf.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Enjoyed your condo a lot. Our Sanibel day would always start with a beautiful stroll down the beach at sunrise...beautiful!!! The island is filled with wildlife. We saw our first manatee, dolphins, crazy amount of birds, turtles, etc. Have to say all the restaurants we went to were awesome...all top notch service and food. This was our first trip to Sanbel and have to put it in our Top 5 Beach Vacations. So much to do than just sit on the beach! We will be back at some time and hope to share your condo again. It made us feel at home.

Excellent place to stay on Sanibel Island

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved our first trip to Sanibel and staying in Pete and Vicki's condo. The pictures and listing is accurate on VRBO. The condo is nicely decorated and clean. The king size bed is very, very comfy and welcoming after a day of bike riding or walking the beaches. We found the location convenient, access to the beach is close and it is an easy bike ride or walk to the lighthouse to catch the sunrise. They have thought of anything and everything you need to make your stay comfortable. Having the bikes available to ride whenever is a big plus as it is very easy to get around the island by bike. The veranda is a wonderful place to enjoy an evening dinner or a cold beverage. Everyone is very friendly at the complex and it is so quiet and peaceful day and night. We would highly recommend staying here and give it an A+. Thank you.

Great Rental -- Great Location!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were extremely happy with this condo; it was perfect for the two of us! The condo looked even cuter in person than it does in the pictures provided here. The location on Sanibel Island was perfect. The beach near the condo seemed a little calmer than other spots further down the island (not that any part of the beach in Sanibel is overcrowded). My husband and I really appreciated that the owners provided beach chairs, toys, and an umbrella, too! The unit was very clean and well-stocked with kitchen supplies in case you are in the mood to cook while you are there. We did not take advantage of the pool or grills, but everything on the property seemed nice and well kept. The owners were great to work with, too. They responded very quickly to questions and were extremely helpful. We would definitely stay here again! :)

As far as recommendations while you are on the island, our favorite place to eat was the Island Cow. We loved it! The shell museum was really interesting, too, and we also recommend renting kayaks through the Tarpon Bay Explorers (in the morning if you want to see fish jumping out of the water like crazy) if you are in the mood to get out and do something other than relax on the beach.

Beautiful condo in Sanibel FL

  • 5 of 5

Lovely condo complex; beautifully decorated with many amenities included. We were not in want of anything! Vicki and Pete were wonderful to deal with, and the staff at the complex couldn't have been more gracious! The complex also provides lounge chairs and an umbrella on the beach free of charge. We had a great time and will definitely return next year. Loved Sanibel and October was a great time to be there!

Fabulous condo

  • 5 of 5

Very nice. The decor was wonderful beachy but not tacky. Washer dryer in the unit was a huge bonus! Bed, pillow top, very comfortable, kitchen extremely well stocked with appliances, dishes and utensils (i have stayed at different place that didn't even have a can opener). Excellent A+

I would like to thank the owners for sharing their lovely vacation home with us. Although we rented it for the week, the condo is stocked so well, having everything needed in a home, that it felt as though we were borrowing their home. The condo is decorated just as pictured and was soothing to come to after spending the day on the beach. Although the unit is not beachfront, it was a two minute walk to the sand and a beach umbrella and relaxing beach chairs are provided and the pool and grilling area are steps away. It was nice to be able to have lunch at the condo and return to the beach without lugging a cooler with us. The condo has everything needed in the kitchen and the bedding and living room furniture were very comfortable. The beach in front of the unit was PERFECT. Although other areas of the beach were crowded, in front of this condo it was not, and we appreciated that. It didn't seem right to come to Sanibel and not visit Captiva island, and found it a lovely short drive away with beautiful sunsets. The beach in front of the unit had the most beautiful sunrises each day. We had great success finding unique Sanibel shells in the shallow waters and on the beach. It was very convenient having the bike rentals on the complex, as anyone that did not wish to rent a car could easily rent the bikes and see the island that way. We would HIGHLY recommend anyone considering this rental to do so if it is available. After speaking with other people that rented other units in Sanibel Arms, we realized that all units are not stocked and decorated as well as this one. We booked our vacation last minute, and Vicki was very prompt in answering questions and was kind enough to follow up with us after check in to ensure we had everything we needed. We will plan on staying in this unit again the next time we come to Sanibel.

A great week at the beach

  • 4 of 5

The condo was very clean and well-equipped. The kitchen was terrific for a vacation rental with nice quality dishes and glassware. Very comfortable bed and spacious eating/living area. The beach chairs were great, although the umbrella was hard to manage in the breezes. The beach was fabulous.

I would probably rate this property at 5 stars were it not for the very small bathroom with not much space to get in/out of shower. ( we are average size.)
