About Monica Belrose

We have been visiting Sanibel Island for 20 years, staying mostly at Villa Sanibel. We love the small complex, where there is always room for you at the pool! The wonderful shelling beach on the Gulf of Mexico is just steps from our door. The sunrises and sunsets are beautiful.

Monica Belrose purchased this condo in 2013

Why Monica Belrose chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We are happy to offer the use of our vacation condo to others. We use the services of a management company to ensure that our condo is maintained to the highest standard and is prepped and ready for our guests.

What makes this condo unique

More than half of Sanibel Island is comprised of nature preserves. There are no traffic lights, street lights or high rise buildings on the island. Just steps from our door is a pristine beach featuring breathtaking sunrises and abundant seashells that attracts visitors from around the world. Across the street is a bike path that stretches for over 25 miles, enabling visitors to bicycle to shopping, parks, restaurants and points of interest. Down the road within walking/biking distance is the famous Ding Darling Wildlife Preserve, where visitors can kayak, canoe, fish or take a guided tour.

The rental was clean, updated and classy! Even had beach supplies! A must stay!

  • 5 of 5

There are not enough words to explain how wonderful our experience was. From the rental company to the condo owner, property itself to the island in was fantastic. To begin, inquiring with the owner and booking with the company put my mind at ease. Never using VSBO before I was nervous. That was unnecessary. They were friendly, professional and patient. When we arrived, the company was so accommodating. They assisted us with information about the island, tips and tricks and answered all of our rookie questions with patience. The property is beautiful. We loved that it was steps to the beach and that they had provided so many beach toys and chairs for our use. So helpful when flying in! The pool was never packed but still had people to visit with. The beds were comfy, rooms clean and there were even games and puzzles! I can't brag enough about the property. It was lovely. The island itself is heavenly. Lots to do and see. We rented bikes from Billy's. They were very easy to rent from and helpful. The property is right on the bike trails and we enjoyed a ton of biking. A must do if you are a weeklong rental. The Bailey tract is right down the road and is so filled with trails and nature. Very enjoyable. We did a boat ride through Adventues in Paradise on the mainland. It was awesome. A big pontoon and tons of dolphins. They provided soda and water. It was well worth it! We also went out to eat ALOT! Recommend: CheeburgerCheeburger, Over Easy Cafe, the Island Cow (awesome coconut fried grouper!). That being said: it was easy to grill on the property and we did that as well. So nice to have a slow night in. I highly recommend this property and destination. You won't be sorry!

The perfect beach condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo Was perfect for our family vacation. The extra beach toys, fishing poles, boogie boards, beach chairs, and drying racks came in handy. The condo is so well decorated and painted. It's a cozy beach cottage vibe. Our family will definitely be coming back!

Our Vacation in Sanibel

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Villa Sanibel! The accommodations were excellent and very comfy. Although there were only 2 of us, the unit can accommodate up to 8 people. The pool is located right outside of the unit and was mostly ours to enjoy alone every day.

The beach was steps away and absolutely beautiful. We enjoyed sitting, walking and swimming everyday. The sunsets were spectacular! We happened to be there during a "supermoon" and it was rising as the sun was setting for a great viewing experience.

We golfed (3 times) and played tennis. We did not take advantage of the bike trails, but we will next time. The trail is wide and clearly marked for safety. We saw a lot of people biking and the bike rental places are easily found. Beach chairs, tennis rackets and beach towels were all available for use.

Great restaurants are found all over the island. The Green Flash, Doc Fords, Mucky Duck, The Lazy Flamingo and The Sand Bar were our choices and we enjoyed every meal.

We took a drive up to Captiva and what a great place. The sunset was just as spectacular as all the others and you can watch it from the beach at Mucky Duck or public beach.

The only part we didn't like was the "no-see-ums" as they call them. The sand flees were the worst at dawn and dusk. We did experience them some during they day. Use a good DEET product and have some Benadryl on hand!

We loved our stay at Villa Sanibel and would go back anytime.

Family friendly-we had a great time!

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed in this unit 2 years in a row. It works very well for the family configuration (grandma, grandpa, daughter, son-in-law & their children) we bring to Florida. Condo is nicely decorated. We like that condo has a king in master, queen in 2nd br. & trundle twin beds in loft for the kids. Kitchen includes all the cooking pans etc. you need to prepare food for a group.

Condo is just a few steps to beach. This proximity to beach makes frequent returns to condo with children or for food, etc., very convenient. We also like how near the condo is to Bailey's Grocery and St. Isabel Church. Owner & service people are friendly and respond quickly if anything required attention. When the clothes dryer quit, they offered to do our family's laundry until the replacement dryer arrived.

We hope to stay here again next year & would recommend it to our friends as well.

Almost PERFECT!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our first trip to Sanibel last week and can't wait to go back. Group of 6 (4 adults and 2 seven year olds) and it was the perfect size. The kids loved sleeping up in the loft and the easy access to the pool and the beach were spot on! We had everything we needed and there were plenty of restaurants within a 10 minute drive (Doc Fords Rum Bar was our favorite), along with Jerry's grocery store conveniently located about a mile and a half away in a little shopping area with different shops and an ice cream parlor.

Got to play golf at The Dunes which is a phenomenal championship golf course about 5 minutes away and we also enjoyed our 15 minute drive up to Captiva to the Mucky Duck (BBQ Shrimp was out of this world)...Skip the Bubble Room if you haven't been there before, was very disappointed, and we just went for dessert. If you go to Captiva, make sure you get there before 3pm as most places close down completely or at least close their kitchens from 3pm to 4:30. Our day trip to Captiva ended with the "Family" Crab Races (G rated) at the Crows Nest (the "Adult" Crab Races (R version) were later in the night).

The only negative was that we were not prepared for the No-see-um's (sand flies) that are most active at dawn and dusk. You can hardly see them, they are so small (hence the name I guess), but these things are RUTHLESS. My wife and I are still itching the 50 or so bites we have on our legs and arms, and my son had to have over 100 bites all over. And we were on the beach from 11am to 4pm except for one evening we stayed out to see the beautiful sunset, so they are obviously still active throughout the day.

Being from MN, where our state bird is the Mosquito, I would gladly hop naked in a barrel full of mosquitos for an entire night versus spending 5 seconds in a barrel with just a few No-see-um's. After doing some research on these things trying to find out what help's with the welts and itching, I can guarantee that when we go back next time, we will have plenty of strong DEET based repellent, antihistamine, and Benadryl cream...There is also a special ointment that they sell at the Sanibel Pharmacy for these things too which we didn't find out about until the last night after talking with some of the local's.

All in all, I would give the overall experience of the trip a 4.5 out of 5 and we look forward to making that a perfect 5 out of 5 the next time down (as long as we are prepared for those devil flies).

Villa Sanibel

  • 5 of 5

My family of 7 has been to Sanibel Island now two years in a row. We have stayed at Villa Sanibel both times. We absolutely love it there and can't imagine staying anywhere else. The condo is very clean, well decorated, comfortable with ALL necessary amenities. Our location is literally steps from the beach. Property is well maintained, quaint and not crowded like many of the larger accommodations. We found ourselves often the only ones in the pool. The owner of this condo is a delight to work with and very responsive. The agency she deals with, Sanibel Holiday is very professional, responsive and friendly. We love it so much we have already booked the same condo for next April. Can't say enough good things. Highly recommend staying here.
