About Janis Zachman

We'd been looking for a vacation/future retirement home. Found the Punta Rassa community near Ft. Myers & were very impressed with the resort-style quality, private but accessible location, friendly neighbors and fabulous waterside setting. We completely renovated this unit to our fussy standards. We used it occasionally and rented it a bit for two years, have resided here recently, and are now moving to our permanent FL home. So the condo will return to its intended use as a weekend place and be available for limited rental by others as well.

Janis Zachman purchased this condo in 2012

Why Janis Zachman chose Florida

Our unit is the newest and best renovation at Punta Rassa. Be among those who enjoy it. High end finishes--hickory floors, shaker cabinetry and doors, nickel accents and hardware, granite everywhere, all new furnishings. Prior floor plan reworked for more privacy and space. Coastal cottage look with old Florida vintage accents. Feedback: stunning, dramatic, cozy, gorgeous.

What makes this condo unique

We are thrilled to have this unit available to us for our occasional use and to share our part of Florida Paradise with a select few people who will enjoy as well.

Enjoyed the sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is beautifully decorated and well-stocked with everything you need to enjoy your stay. The furniture and beds are almost new and very comfy. We especially loved being on the water's edge. The sunsets were spectacular! From the lanai, we viewed dolphins and sea birds daily, and even spied some manatees swimming through on their way to warmer waters. There is a lot to do without leaving the premises, such as fishing from the pier, swimming at the heated pools, walking on the hiking trail, and drinking and dining at the fine bars and restaurants. This location is also convenient for visiting Sanibel and Captiva Islands, and Fort Myers Beach. The owners were very easy to work with, too. We highly recommend this property for a memorable vacation!

Gorgeous Waterfront Condo Beats Staying at Hotel Hands Down

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we stepped through the doors, we were wowed by the thoughtful and carefully appointed unit. It was totally renovated; from the interior doors to the flooring, kitchen and bathrooms plus more and tastefully decorated. The kitchen was thoughtfully outfitted with what's needed to prepare meals in-house. Clean towels and bedding was of good quality, with extra care taken to protect pillows and beds. All furniture being new was clean and comfortable. We have stayed at a lot of 4 and 5 star hotels, and Janis and her husband has made this unit and our stay for the 1 month + 1 week stay a 5 star experience I would definitely stay again and refer my friends and family to this place.

The views were to die for; with dolphins, jumping fish, pelicans, egrets and water sports activities along with the panoramic view of Sanibel/Captiva Islands and gorgeous sunsets vying for our attention. It was almost difficult to leave the unit to go about our daily outings. The location of Punta Rassa was, I found over the many stays in this area - the best due to its close proximity to the world famous beaches of Sanibel and Captiva Islands. Marriott's Sanibel Harbour Resort, Sanibel Harbour Yacht Club being steps away was a real convenience for its restaurants and entertainment, as was Sanibel Port Marina (short drive away) for its Lighthouse restaurant, entertainment and boat and jet ski rentals and tour boats.

I love Punta Rassa, and this condo. Thank you Janis and Jay for having us.

Beauty Overlooking The Water

  • 5 of 5

The condo was just as the pictures portray: charming, bright, comfortable! I loved the fact that everything had been so recently re-done (and in extremely good taste) and reflected that barely used quality. Most people like to eat out a lot while on vacation, but I loved the new gourmet kitchen, and loved to cook in it. We never got tired of the views from the lanai, or the beauty of nature that surrounds you while you are here: dolphins, birds, plants, trees, flowers, etc. The owners were very responsive when we had one minor problem with the A/C. It was fixed immediately. We love the beaches at Captiva, so this location was perfect! That, along with the numerous restaurants, shopping, and other attractions, made this a perfect place for us. We would definitely recommend it to family and friends.

Fabulous Condo

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this property. The listing photos were very accurate. Very clean and well maintained. The owner was always helpful and mailed a detailed listings of items in condo before we arrived. The view from screened porch is the greatest.
