About Francis Gicca

We're Frank and Joan Gicca. Our year-round home is in New England, but we decided we had to have a home in Sanibel.

Francis Gicca purchased this condo in 1998

Why Francis Gicca chose Sanibel

Sanibel is a lovely and special place - the number one beach destination in the United States. When we first saw it, we knew we had to have a home here!

Wonderful Place to Stay! :)

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous week at this condo. It had everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay at this wonderful complex. The beach was beautiful, the grounds were lovely and we enjoyed the pool every day. Other visitors and staff were very pleasant and we truly felt at home. The rooftop deck was wonderful for morning coffee and star gazing at night. The owner, Frank, was a pleasure to deal with and check-in at Sanibel Holiday was a breeze. We would definitely rent again and would recommend to our friends. Thank you for sharing your wonderful condo! :)

Can't say anything but good things about this place. The condo is nicely decorated and very clean. Loved everything about the place. The rooftop deck was very private and had such a beautiful view. Thanks for a wonderful stay. Hope to visit again someday.

The condo was beautiful and had all of the comforts of home! Making our travel arrangements with Frank was a dream! He was always SO kind and quick to respond! You can look around and find other condos on Sanibel that are MUCH LESS DESIRABLE for hundreds, if not a thousand dollars more! Not only was the Penthouse condo amazing, but the beach was one of the nicest I've seen!

Thanks for such an amazing vacation experience, Frank! Our family hopes to vacation there again soon!!!

Just returned from a week in Sanibel. The condo was absolutely perfect. So clean and had all the amenities we were looking for. Travelling with a 1 year old and my husband and mother and we were all very impressed with this unit. Loved the rooftop sundeck and the view from the condo was beautiful. It was a perfect location for travelling with an infant who can't spend too much time at the beach but with this location we could just walk 5 minutes to the beach and return to condo if it got too hot or baby needed changing. Rented crib and high chair from island rentals and it was there and set up upon arrival. Loved the washer/dryer in unit. We are already looking forward to returning and staying in Pointe Santo again!

By far the best equipped condo we have rented. The kitchen in particular makes cooking hassle free. Some of the other outstanding features are fast reliable wi-fi and the upper “sun” deck which is also great for viewing the night sky and wildlife in the lagoon. We hope to return next year.
