About the property

Sanibel Island, Florida

For your next oceanside getaway, there is nowhere better than the always charming Sanibel! Escape to this quaint Sanibel Island studio condo, a perfect choice for couples or small families - it offers accommodations for up to 4 guests. In true Sanibel style, this delightful condo is only a brief walk to one of the world's best shelling beaches and a quick drive to local eateries and boutiques you can't find anywhere else. You won't regret a second you spend at this little slice of paradise!


Sanibel Island provides the best combination of Gulf living, shopping, dining, and shelling in all of Southwest Florida - at this unit, you're poised to experience it all! This quaint studio condo can comfortably accommodate 2-4 guests, making it a fantastic size for a couple or small family out for a tropical getaway. Refreshing seaside decor and plenty of natural light make the space feel very bright and airy, just like the island itself. You'll find all the necessary comforts of home inside the unit's delightful interior, such as wireless internet, air conditioning, and ceiling fans to keep you cool and relaxed. You won't find it hard to stay entertained here, as the flat screen TV comes equipped a DVD player and a wide variety of cable channels, including HBO and ESPN. When you're not out enjoying the area's fantastic local restaurants, prepare some delicious fresh seafood in the condo's fully equipped kitchen, complete with all the essential appliances. Later, step outside to the private lanai patio, where you can unwind and admire the Gulf peeking out behind the tropical garden. There's no place like Sanibel - stay in this condo and become a believer yourself!


When you're ready to get out and explore the area, you won't have to venture far! This studio condo is conveniently within walking distance of beautiful Sanibel Beach, an immaculate white sand beach with world-class shelling. While you're there, it's likely you'll see roped off areas of sand - these are loggerhead turtle nests, which incubate about 55-65 days and hatch in the middle of the night to avoid predators. Sanibel Captiva Conservation Foundation volunteers keep track of the nests, and they may know which nest might hatch while you're here! Enjoy more wildlife just 5 miles away at the J.N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge, or nearby at the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum, and Periwinkle Park and Campground.

Additionally, you'll be a short walk from Sundial Resort, where you can indulge in spa services, onsite restaurants, and a tiki bar. Get used to spending your vacation days relaxing by your choice of 4 pools - this is what vacation is all about! The resort also offers Sanibel Sea School camps, access to the tennis courts cost $15 per person, and pickle ball for $10 per person. Before heading home, stop by Bailey's general grocery store to pick up whatever you may need back at the condo.

Explore the area further by renting kayaks, paddle boards, and bicycles at several rental shops, which deliver equipment directly to you for ultimate convenience. The island is a cyclist's dream -paved bike paths begin across the street from the condo and wind around the entire island. If you're in the mood for shopping, head to Periwinkle Place or Tahitian Gardens for charming boutiques and galleries before stopping for lunch at one of the area's terrific restaurants. Local favorites include The Timbers, The Jacaranda, Doc Ford's, and The Purple Cow, to name a few. Make sure to take a boat to the historical Useppa Island or Cabbage Key, home of Jimmy Buffett's "Cheeseburger in Paradise." Captiva Island, the neighboring island is a hidden gem - head to the Bubble Room for gargantuan portions, gourmet cake, and unique 1950s-meets-Christmas ambiance! Regardless of how you spend your time here, you'll be happy you chose this lovely Sanibel Island vacation rental studio promises the trip of a lifetime!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I spent a few days here in July for mother daughter time. The studio condo was perfect for our needs and have everything we could want. Including beach chairs, towels and noodles for the pool! Let's not forget the blender for margaritas and smoothies. :) The balcony is huge and had a drying rack for towels and suits as well. I noticed in past reviews it said no beach view. While there is not a direct beach front view. There is a small view between buildings when sitting at one end of the balcony. The condo is part of a resort complex and offers access to all but one of the other pools in the complex as well. You will also find several restaurants on site and a small store that is connected to one of the bigger island stores called Bailey's. Be sure to try the fudge! We would stay here again.

Loved the unit. Very clean, comfortable and homey.

We loved the unit. We felt at home right away and enjoyed the property. Pool and beach just a two minute walk from our door. Owner couldn’t have been nicer to deal with.

Just As Advertised

  • 5 of 5

This place met and in some cases exceeded our expectations. The condo, proximity to the beach, amenities etc. were all as advertised. We would definitely book this place again.

Cute little place

  • 4 of 5

Very cute small studio apartment with no view of the water. Fine for just me. The bed would have been too tight for my husband and me. We've stayed in Sanibel about nine times in the last 18 years, and every condo we've stayed in is somewhat dated. We don't mind it, but we recommended Sanibel to our friends and they were pretty disappointed -- they expected a modern condo with fabulous pools and amenities. Sanibel is low key and humble (which we love), but expensive at the same time. The fan in the bathroom needed to be replaced -- it was extremely loud -- but I was assured that would be taken care of. Check on that before you book this condo.

Perfect location at a great rate

  • 4 of 5

The location was everything you could want for a couple of people on their own! In a few minutes in any direction you could be on the beach, at a resort, at a mini-mart (well stocked), at some restaurants, or out on the trails. For the location and amenities, the price was spot on. Communication was fairly good, but we could have used some better directions of where to pick up the key/find the unit and some other check-in info. We got in very late (around 11:30pm), so it was quite confusing in the dark. Also, where things were in the unit were a little difficult to find, especially the thermostat hidden behind the TV (which we promptly turned off).

The unit itself is a small studio with a large screened in lanai, perfect for breathing in the air and eating outside. There were also plenty of extras in the unit like backpack-chairs for the beach. We wanted for nothing except a fan in the bathroom.

We had some physical problems with the unit where the TV literally broke off the wall (looks like it was not bolted in to a stud). Decorations and setup were dated but totally functional. But let's be honest: you're going there to be outside and enjoy the area, not to hang out inside except to sleep! But be warned that the ceilings/floors are paper thin and we could hear the upstairs neighbors (AKA the baby elephants) clearly early in the morning, and that means others can probably hear you. We are early birds so this was not a huge issue, but if you like to sleep in this might not be possible.

Also, the unit is run by a management company, along with many of the other units surrounding it. This gave the unit and the complex as a whole more of a hotel feel than a home feel. You get way more than from a hotel, but it was not as personal as other places we stayed.

Despite the little warnings, you should rent this place. For a couple of people or maybe a couple with a young child you could not do better!
