Florida South Central Gulf Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4, 2 TVs, Beautiful Views, Free WiFi, HDTV


Enter the front door and the view will draw your eyes to the lanai and the lagoon and beach beyond. the new screen entry door allows you to open both lanai doors double wide and feel the ocean breeze. The lanai is the perfect place to dine or read and maybe take that afternoon nap. The bedroom also faces the beach and has a door to the lanai. The wall of windows there provides a stunning view as well.

Our condo was just renovated. Changes include new marble shower, enlarged bathroom with marble vanity and floors. The kitchen has granite counter tops and all new stainless steel appliances, new backsplash and small appliances. Furnishings are also being added including new sleeper sofa, new king mattress, new tv console, a new 55 inch flat screen smart tv, new washer and dryer and much more. The entire condo has been painted and updated.

Point Santo has a pool with beach view, hot tub, tennis courts, shuffleboard, and beach volleyball. There are afternoon activities for children and a shell cleaning and washing station for those treasures you find. Beach chairs are waiting on the beach but we also have chairs and an umbrella for your use.

The location is central and close to some of the very best restaurants and close to Bailey's Grocery. A quick walk down the beach to the left takes you to Casa Ybel's beach restaurant and bar. At Point Santo it is easy to have a relaxing vacation. We take pride in creating a space that has everything you need and welcome suggestions to make your stay even better. Come see for yourself.

About Karen H.

Randy has been coming to Sanibel since he was a young child. There was a span of years that we missed seeing Sanibel and we are so fortunate to be able to create a space for us to enjoy and share with other island lovers. The saying is true that 'You can shake the sand from your shoes but it never leaves your soul'.

Karen H. purchased this condo in 2013

Why Karen H. chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Pointe Santo offers all the amenities that make your vacation extra special. The complex has a long term staff who pay attention to keeping the grounds and public areas clean and safe.

What makes this condo unique

We chose this condo because of the beach view. The Sanibel beach is beautiful and brings all ages together for the allure of the sand, the sun and the water. That is why so many people return year after year to enjoy all the unique experiences of the island.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We found your apartment very nice, comfortable, with a very nice view and very clean so I can’t come up with anything that would need to be changed. I also enjoyed your emails and I am thankful your quick responce to all my questions."

Wonderful Condo

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked in the door, it felt like home! Karen left nothing to be desired in this condo, even provided lots of books which I took advantage of. You simply do not need anything but your suitcase! I do recommend going to the condo before the store since you are provided a nice starter package. We hope to be back in the near future, our vacation was simply amazing!

Another great trip to Sanibel

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to visit Sanibel and stay in this condo. We had a great time and the condo was just as we remembered it. This condo is very well kept and Karen always is very helpful and quick to respond to any needs or questions you may have. The condo is equipped with everything you may need for your stay. We especially enjoyed riding our bikes on the many bike paths on the island. We love the fact that it is easy to get around and there are many great restaurants to enjoy. Our favorite is the Mucky Duck in Captiva. We will definitely make a return trip here in the future. Thank you Karen for providing an excellent place for us to stay during our visit!!

Sanibel Sunning

My wife and I had a wonderful stay at Karen's Ponte Santo property. The unit was perfect. It was clean and updated with a beautiful master suite. The unit also had a great view of the gulf and gardens. The unit's beach chairs were a very nice surprise. I don't know if I could have asked for anything more!

Love, Love, Love the place! The owners have done an impeccable job in furnishing this condo, all the amenities of home and furnished beautifully. The style of the condo is perfect for matching the "island" experience. The decor is warm and inviting, felt right at home the moment we walked in the door. Everything you need is there including a mound of island brochures/restaurant menus etc. This is how a condo should be! So glad we booked this in celebration of our 30th wedding anniversary, had a great time and loved staying here!

Can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying at Karen and Randy's condo. We knew last year within the first ten minutes of arrival that we would rebook for this year. Other winter plans is the only reason we are not returning next year but have already spoken to Karen about 2018 and hope to return again. We are so grateful for their generous heart in furnishing a very beautiful unit with an unbelievable location on the second floor with a direct view of the lagoon and the gulf. Many breakfasts and dinners and time in between were spent relaxing on the lanai. You won't need to bring anything but your own personal belongings and a desire to soak up the sun and the gulf. Shells galore right on the resort beach and in either direction with a cleaning station at the beach. Beach equipment is provided in the condo. Cook as little or as much as you want with the furnished kitchen. Nine Grills are cleaned daily for your use by the staff of the resort. We brought fishing equipment with this year and caught fish right at the beach and with the advice of a local bait store obtained other ideal fishing locations. We didn't have access to a fish cleaning station so we were content with catch and release. If you want serenity, peace and beauty look no further than this listing. Karen and Randy have outdone themselves with the remodel and furnishings. Enjoy🌴🐠😎

Owner's Response: What a joy to read your review! For an owner who is very involved in the booking process this is music to my ears. We were also sold on the view from the very first look. It is a delight to have guests that take good care of our place and enjoy their stay. Whether a week or a month, it is never long enough. Thanks Cindy and Dan. We will stay connected regarding your next trip.
