About Vince or Marilyn Conoscenti

Vince and Marilyn are originally from Glen Ellyn, Illinois and now reside on Sanibel Island just a half mile from this unit.

Vince or Marilyn Conoscenti purchased this condo in 1998

Why Vince or Marilyn Conoscenti chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

This unit represents our vacation home while raising a family and still in the working world. It has always been a very special place to us and our family.

What makes this condo unique

We fell in love with Sanibel and Pine Cove with all it's luscious trees and flowers. The pool area with jacuzzi and BQ area were always special, but the unit's unique top floor cozy location and breathtaking views from the lanai are the treasure.

paradise on earth

  • 5 of 5

We loved the skylights, the sunrises AND sunsets from the lanai, and the nicely decorated, spotless, very well-appointed living space. The beach front is gorgeous and relatively sparsely populated. Dolphins swim by regularly, there are eagles and ospreys, unparalleled beach combing, and amazing birds and alligators at the nearby Ding Darling Wildlife refuge. It's an easy walk or bike ride from the condo to the Bailey Tract for mores nature hiking and to a great grocery store in the town center.

Wonderful place to stay and great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two daughters and I had a wonderful time staying at this condo. It was spacious, nicely decorated, updated and had the amenities we were looking for. Prior to our arrival, the owners also completed additional work, including painting, window treatments and interior design.

A highlight of this condo is the location. It is right on the beach with an ocean view, which we enjoyed every day from the patio, master bedroom and family room. It is also situated in an ideal place on the island being in the middle section with access to sights on both sides of the island and Captiva Island. It is also at the southernmost tip of the island for a beautiful view of both sunrise and sunset, which is not possible at most other island locations. It is conveniently near shops, restaurants, bike trails and the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge.

Lastly, the owners were so pleasant and helped to make our stay that much more enjoyable. We had a fabulous time there and hope to return soon!

Owner's Response: Thank you Jennifer. So glad you and your family enjoyed Sanibel as we always do. Getting a "Star on the paper" always make you feel good! Our hopes are always to make your stay pleasant and do agree that the answer is "location--location"! That is why we love Pine Cove so much. We look forward to having you stay with us again. Thank you. Vince and Marilyn

We love Pine Cove!

  • 4 of 5

Our family has been visiting Sanibel Island for over 20 years. We found Pine Cove a few years ago and are so happy we did. The complex is directly on the beach. The unobstructed view from the unit is simply wonderful. Many a beautiful sunset or sunrise viewed from the beach and lanai. The complex is small and we always met friendly people by the pool or when we were using the very nice community grills. This unit's kitchen is well equipped to accommodate us when we decided to cook rather than go to one of the island's great restaurants. The complex is so close to shops and Bailey's grocery store. An easy bike ride or walk is all you need.

There are lots of beach chairs in the storage unit located in the parking area, and it appeared there were also lots of beach toys available if someone is traveling with younger children. Good wifi--seems like we all have to have that now--and nice TVs in bedrooms and living area. A very comfortable place for our month long visit to Sanibel. Hated to leave, but we will be back next year!! I do miss falling asleep to the sound of the waves in the Gulf.

One additional note--the management company quickly handled a leaky shower head situation for us. We appreciate how quickly they got a plumber out to the unit.

Owner's Response: Karen. Thank you for your fine review. So glad you enjoyed your stay. Next year will be even better as the living room will have new furniture! Looking forward to your return after a great summer. When it turns chilly, head south to your Pine Cove nest. Thanks again. Vince and Marilyn

OK, but not perfect.

  • 3 of 5

The condo itself is nice, but we did have some issues while there.

First, they were doing work to the condo unit beneath us and the workers would sometimes come and start work very early in the morning (before 8AM at times) and were frequently very loud during the day as well - so if you wanted to come back for a rest out of the sun, forget about it. Unfortunately, this was not relayed to us before the trip, we were just told at checkin.

Secondly, the unit was definitely not cleaned well when we got there. There were still food crumbs all over the kitchen floor, hair in the fridge, and dirty tissues next to the nightstand in one of the bedrooms.

Thirdly, when we got there we turned the AC down a bit as it was too hot in the apartment. The thermostat had some sort of glitch though that dropped the AC down to 60 (even though we had set it to 69). While we were out getting groceries, a maintenance guy showed up in our unit, turned it back up, and left us a note telling us we could not turn it below 72 degrees or it would freeze the AC unit and we would be without air for at least 5-6 hours. As you can imagine, it was hot pretty much the whole time we were there then, because the AC did not do a great job of keeping it even at 72!

Some of these things have nothing to do with the owners I am sure, but it would have been nice if they had been more responsive (or responsible) to let us know about some of these before our one and only vacation of the year got booked. I exchanged one email with the owner before booking, but my second email with more questions was not answered at all. A little customer service can go a long way, and I regret not having changed my mind after the lack of response.

The view from the unit is great though. It is stocked with lots of kitchen utensils. It is super close to the beach, obviously, and had a storage unit downstairs to keep our beach stuff in. It says it will sleep 6, but that could be very crowded - 4 is definitely great though.

Not a bad deal if you go during off peak season... but our friends stayed up the road for cheaper and had a much nicer place.

Owner's Response: Mark. I am sorry you had a bad experience at Pine Cove, but unfortunately I have no control over what my neighbor decides to do to update his unit. They had purchased it after you had booked, did not tell us fellow owners of his construction plans or time frame. Each day was different. Actually, the prior week was very noisy which brought calls into the agency and they tried to speak with the contractor and even gifted to the disappointed guests.to make it happy. Just spoke with the family that stayed in our unit directly below yours and was told "well, it was just average construction noise". I wish you would have called the agency that handles the property during your stay. Something could have down to make your stay more pleasant. The same response would go for finding a condo not cleaned properly. I just talked to the cleaning company and they were most apologetic and wished they had known right away. A crew would have been dispatched immediately to rectify the situation. This is the first time I have received a review like this so I guess our "batting average" is still above average. But since I can't hold their hand each week, I trust our guests to give us feed back immediately. If this were ever to happen to you anywhere you stay, register a complaint to management immediately and not wait three and a half weeks. As you will recall and if I have to send copies I will, all received emails received responses. I even held our other unit open for your friend for at least four days awaiting a response only to find they were not going to need it. Pine Cove is a special place to me as we even lived their for a period of time. Grant it, the unit is not huge, but homey comfortable with many amenities. In our site on VRBO, it states it is a two bedroom condo with a pullout sofa. It is qualified to sleep six, but for privacy and secluded comfort, preferably four or five if crib is needed. We hope you will come to Sanibel again as it is a special island. May next year's vacation be truly grand for you and your family wherever it may be. Vince and Marilyn Conoscenti

Shhhh! Don't tell anyone!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been coming to this complex for years---sometimes with kids, sometimes without---and we can't say enough great things about this property. The location, the amenities, the quiet...and this unit is our favorite without a doubt. The view is a "wow"...and the place is always neat as a pin, stocked with everything we need to make our stay so relaxing, and the owners couldn't be more hospitable. We love it...and can't wait to come back. I just wish we could keep it our little secret. (PS: We saw more dolphins this trip than all our other trips combined. Thanks, Vince, for arranging that special treat!)

Owner's Response: Thank you "our five Huffs". It is such a treat to receive your great review. Once again, like getting a star on your paper many years ago! We are truly happy that your stay in our home was good. We only wish we could take credit for the fine turnout of the dolphin (you know,"cue the dolphin") but that was so fortunate for you and your family. We would love to share our home with you again in the future and once again, thank you for the kind remark. Vince & Marilyn

Dear Marilyn and Vince, Your condo is lovely,it is equipped with every comfort of home .The description of your unit(photos etc.) and outdoor grounds is right on! Thank you for the delicious bottle of wine, that was very thoughtful of you to remember our anniversary. The weather got quite chilly towards the end of our stay and the hot tub was used often. We hope to be back and rent from you again. Sincerely, Kim & Duane
