Butterknife Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms plus den, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

What are you waiting for? This is the brightest star in Pointe Santo! You'll love relaxing in paradise in our beautifully decorated home. Our 2 bedroom, 2 bath, plus den unit has it all and was remodeled in September, 2015. All of the cabinets in both baths and the kitchen have been replaced with custom white cabinets with bead board fronts. Stainless steel appliances have also been installed. In September of 2013, another renovation took place and included granite countertops, kitchen backsplash, new plush carpet, plantation shutters, sconce lighting, fresh paint, front screen door, mirrors, lighting, shower doors in both baths, and new ceiling fans! Most of the furniture, including on the lanai, is also new and is island style and very comfortable. Mattresses, sheets, bedspreads, towels, art, and flat screen tvs are also new. A bonus room can be used as a den or an extra room for one of the kids. The remodeled kitchen provides all of the comforts of home and is very well equipped with glassware, dishes, pots and pans, gadgets, and small appliances. Cooking a simple lunch or preparing a gourmet dinner is a cinch here. If you prefer, take advantage of one of the 9 gas grills located on the property.

Our location near the elevator on the 3rd floor provides you with a beautiful view of the vast beach, glorious gulf, lush grounds, lagoon, and afternoon sun. Our assigned parking space is right by the elevator so no need to worry about hauling groceries or luggage a long distance.

Cool day? No problem, the afternoon sun will warm you up. Warm day? Again, no worries as the 6 ceiling fans will keep you cool. Keep your luggage light and leave your hair dryers and beach towels at home. We provide them for you! Beach chairs, shelling tools, beach toys, and noodles are also provided. We have a large assortment of dvds, books, games, and puzzles for all ages to enjoy. We also provide an iHome so you can listen to music from your iPod, iPad, or iPhone.

Why Pointe Santo? We are located on West Gulf Drive, at the Southern most tip of the island, situated on 10 acres of land with 600 feet of beach frontage. The beach is at its widest point on the island here, providing plentiful shells and stunning sunsets. These sunsets can't be beat and are a nightly ritual at Pointe Santo. Amenities at Pointe Santo include a heated fresh water pool (with daily adult swim hours of 9-10am and 4-5pm), lounge chairs on the beach, volleyball net on the beach, 2 shuffleboard courts, 2 tennis courts, and hot tub. The clubhouse is located by the pool and the on-site activities director launches the scheduled daily activities from here. A schedule of each week's programs for ages 4 to adult is posted here. Some typical activities include shell crafts, hair braiding, educational beach walks, bingo, board games, card games, ice cream socials, and movie night. Walk a short distance on the beach for a poolside lunch or cocktail.

Why Sanibel? Frommer's Travel Guide ranked Sanibel as the #1 tourist destination in 2011, ahead of Paris and Bali! The world's largest travel site rated Sanibel in the top 10 islands in the United States saying ' Sanibel is the most family-friendly destination on our list.' Coastal Living Magazine ranked Sanibel 3rd on their list of 'Happiest Seaside Towns', ranking the island higher than LaJolla, CA, Kennebunkport, ME, Sag Harbour, NY, and Newport, RI among others. USA Today ranked Sanibel in the top 10 great places for families to escape the snow. U.S. News Travel rated Sanibel the 10th 'Best Beach in the World'. The only beach in the United States to make the list! The Huffiington Post lists Sanibel as one of 7 small islands within North America that 'should be on your radar' for a getaway. The League of American Bicyclists honored Sanibel by naming the island as a Bicycle Friendly Community, the highest ranking city in Florida! US News and World Report ranked Sanibel Island #4 for 'Best Family Beach Vacations', ranking it ahead of Hilton Head, Honolulu, US Virgin Island, and Cape Cod, giving it the highest ranking of any Florida beach. Factors cited included safe waters, kid friendly attractions and dining, and multi-generational appeal and overall accessibility. And most recently, Family Fun Magazine announced its travel awards, the result of polling 2000 families to rate their favorite destination. The #1 choice was Sanibel, "an island town with ample white beaches and seashells, and the power to chill out even the most high strung parents and kids". There are 15 miles of unspoiled beaches, 25 miles of bike paths, 50 types of fish, 230 species of birds, 250 varieties of shells, and 0 stop lights!

Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge, with more than 7000 acres of wild lands and waters, and the Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum are must sees. For the active traveler, be sure to ride bikes along the 25 mile bike path that stretches the entire length of the island. Or, kayak through Tarpon Bay and see the wildlife. The Sanibel Farmers' Market is another 'must do'! It is every Sunday October-May. Our unit rents Saturday-Saturday, 7 night minimum.

About Sally Neff

We are from Indianapolis and have been winter residents of Sanibel since 2001. We love it here and are confident you will too! We visit Sanibel about every 6 weeks and are constantly changing things, cleaning things, or rearranging things. We are very hands-on owners.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What an amazing island! This was our first time on Sanibel and we could not have picked a better place to stay. This condo is perfect and the sunrise/sunsets are absolutely breath taking! We ate every meal out on the porch and got to watch a dolphin show. Shelling was the best ever. We found so many wonderful rare findings out on the Blind Pass. Sand dollars were everywhere as well. . .we couldn't pass those up. Thanks so much for providing this slice of paradise for us to enjoy. We had the best vacation and will be back again soon. We fell in love with Sanibel!

Excellent choice!

  • 5 of 5

My family loved this condo! There's a great view of the Gulf, the rooms are clean, bright and very comfortable, and the kitchen is very well stocked. Great location too - close to all the stores. Be sure to grab your favorite beverage and head to the beach to watch the sun set!

Beautiful condo with great view of the gulf

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved this condo at Pointe Santo. The unit is very cozy and welcoming. We especially loved the newly remodeled kitchen and other amenities. The condo is a short walk to the beach, and it is very close to shopping and restaurants. Our favorite restaurant, Doc Ford's, is a very short drive from Pointe Santo. The owner is a pleasure to work; she even had a bottle of wine waiting for us in honor of our ten year wedding anniversary. We highly recommend that you rent this unit the next time you vacation on Sanibel.

Coming back!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say how much I enjoyed our stay here. The condo was beautifully decorated and very spacious. We spent every night on the lanai just talking and enjoying the views. Not far at all from shops, restaurants and markets. Definitely go to Jerrys and visit with Ceaser. You will love him. Very quiet beach and gorgeous clear water. Makes me wonder why we ever came back.

This is the place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We looked at a lot of places on Sanibel and picked this one. Best decision ever! This is a beautiful condo in a quiet, well kept complex. The view is wonderful and the condo itself is spotless and newly updated. All you need is there and there is a plenty of space. The owner is wonderful to work with. When the time comes to return to Sanibel, this will be the place we book.

Wonderful place to spend the week relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time relaxing at this beautiful and well maintained condo. Sally was wonderful to deal with and answered all our questions in a timely fashion. Besides the great accommodations, the extra items available at the condo are remarkable (fishing pole, pool toys, beach items and more), everything a traveling family needs to enjoy time at the beach. Would definitely recommend this condo to anyone who is looking for someplace close to the beach, clean, and well maintained.

Thank you Sally for sharing your condo with us. Despite the rainy week, we had a great time. Thank you!

We stayed in this unit 2 years ago and were extremely pleased. The furnishings and location are excellent. The master bathroom is beautiful. We were also pleased with the ease of check in. Great pool and beautiful beach just short walk away. We still talk about how relaxing this vacation was!

Sanibel has it all! Relax and do nothing. Or, take it all in. Don't miss the world renowned Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum to learn all about shells and mollusks. A must see is J.N. Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge, part of the largest undeveloped mangrove ecosystem in the US. It is world famous for its spectacular migratory bird populations.
