Overview

About the property

Super clean & very cozy beach condo, 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, sleeps 4-6 guests

(We had an emergency cancellation for the week of New Year's Eve, and we're adjusting the price down for customers who reach out and ask about it!)

You’ll have a beautiful ocean and beach view and an inviting home away from home here in A21, whether you’re in the kitchen, getting fresh air on the lanai, curled up on an overstuffed sofa, or just taking in the view from the King-sized bed through your floor-to-ceiling glass doors that look out on the Gulf.

Our building is as close to the water as you can get on the whole island. We're just steps from the beach and pool, it's an ideal location. You’ll be provided virtually everything you need for play on the beach or in and around the pool and club.

We offer a beautiful 55” flat-screen TV in the living room, along with a DVD player that will access your Netflix or Amazon accounts! The master and guest bedrooms also offer 32” flat-screen TVs. If you also like to have a little music, we offer a Sony radio/CD/iPod player and a separate tape player in the living room.

You’ll have room for four to six people in your private condo. In addition to the king bed in the master bedroom, the extra bedroom has two twin beds, and the living room offers a queen-sized sleeper sofa.

The master bedroom has a private full bathroom with an extra-large rainforest shower plus handheld showerhead, and a newly tiled floor. A new granite counter tops the two-sink vanity. The bathroom offers a new well-lighted cosmetics table for the evenings you choose to spend out at fine dining, clubs, or other night-life spots on Sanibel.

The guest room offers an attached bath with a combination shower and tub, also recently updated.

The kitchen is well equipped with a full selection of cooking and serving utensils on-hand, with a granite-top island. This is an open plan kitchen, so you can prepare a snack or a multi-course meal for six but still chat with friends who are in the dining area or living room.

We also provide some extras that some units overlook -- laundry baskets & hamper, extra lighting for bathroom mirrors (when needed), salt & pepper, labels on the light switches so you know how to turn the lights on & off, extra keys, extra coffee filters, and many other touches just intended to make things feel familiar and comfortable.

Pointe Santo's tropically landscaped grounds include a swimming pool, a hot tub, six outdoor gas grills and on-site supervised children’s activities for kids 4 and up on weekdays year 'round, during high season Sundays too.

With one of the best beaches on Sanibel, it is the ideal location to enjoy the Gulf. You’ll be close to restaurants & shops ranging from casual to upscale, and a choice of golf courses.

Yet with all the peace, quiet, and beauty, you're just a short drive away from the diverse shopping, entertainment, & dining opportunities in Fort Myers, Florida.

We took ownership of the unit in December 2012, and we've done important updates & upgrades every year!

Please note that we choose to book the unit on a weekly basis only, from Saturday-to-Saturday, with a few exceptions for less busy times of year. Although you may arrive and depart when you wish, we need to charge as though the unit is fully occupied.

We're Glen & Betina and because of the beauty, the peace, and simply amazing views we fell in love with Sanibel starting in 2010. You probably will too! You can contact us with questions (in English and German) or click 'Book it Now'!

Our view of the ocean & beach is simply outstanding; few units on the island can match it. The unit is beautifully furnished with a 'modern beach' feeling & is convenient and comfortable -- perfect for families and couples. We are just yards away from a wide-open and inviting beach. We stay in the unit ourselves at least two weeks of year, usually in May and December, and we try to keep it like a second home; we renovated both bathrooms and redecorated and painted in November 2013. We're located 2 minutes by car from the nicest part of the business district, with very good local restaurants and shops but plenty peace and relaxation.

Our luxurious and comfortable vacation home comes with a great view, direct beach access, and everything you need for a spectacular vacation, just in a place much like your own home!

You'll also be able to contact us, the owners, directly - not someone's answering service or rental agency - and we're happy to offer informed advice and help with any questions before, during or even after your visit. We want to keep our place looking & feeling like a happy home, for us & our many repeat guests!

Perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

We stepped into the condo and knew it was going to be a great vacation. The natural light was great, the kitchen was clean, and everything just looked well-maintained but also very comfortable. It was a great home base to come back to, after our outings and also great for just relaxing on the lanai during the evening while our daughter watched Netflix. Thanks so much!

Very nice property. Very close to pool and beach

  • 5 of 5

The condo was great. Well maintained and very convenient. Point Sanibel is right on the beach, and has a good pool. From the front door of the condo, the beach is about 50 yards away. Excellent shelling

Excellent Beach Front Condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for the family. It is centrally located on the island; making it close to everything. Everything you would need was provided. No need to buy pool or beach toys or accessories; it was all their. The kitchen came fully equipped with a great working dish washer. The lanai was awesome; it was the most favorite place to sit. The whole complex was always very clean. Rented bikes from Billy's and the delivery/pick up service is the best. The bikes were there when arrived and didn't have to worry about bringing them back; just left them in the bike rack for pick up. Highly recommend for the family. Will definitely go back.

Great vacation condo!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the condo the week before Memorial Day 2017 and loved it and the great weather we had! The condo was just as the pictures tell the story- clean, comfortable, well taken care of, fantastic view from the lanai, and a perfect size. It is a great location as a end unit, very quiet and the Pointe Santo property is really well kept. The beach was also as promised-beautiful sand and shells. It is a short fun walk past the lagoon and pool to the beach. There is a supply cabinet that provides those staying in the condo with beach chairs and toys and an umbrella. There are also plenty of beach chairs by the beach. The pool and hot tub were clean and the pool had a good number of chairs and a table with umbrella. We don't have small children but the rec room by the pool looked like it had a nice set up with crafts and organized activities for kids. Also the convenience of printing your boarding pass there was appreciated. There are gas grills around the lagoon for the condo units to share. It was our first trip to Sanibel and we were pleasantly surprised by the number of restaurants and things to do- with really friendly staff! My husband rented a canoe at the Nature preserve and a bike for the week, he really loved all of the bike trails. There is a really nice plaza called Periwinkle Place to spend a rainy day or evening shopping. We are planning to return to the condo next year!
