About the property

Gulf Front, On Beach, Remodeled, Top Floor Corner, Sleeps 7, 2 Bdrm, 2 Bth

You will absolutely love this completely renovated Gulf front top floor corner unit and its fresh surroundings. Enjoy the gorgeous view of the ocean in the very desirable Sand Pointe condominium complex with a new open floor plan and furnishings. The designer kitchen is stunning - from stainless steel appliances to beautiful all-wood cabinets to granite countertops. No expense has been spared!

The bathrooms are also remodeled and luxurious with white cabinetry paired with rich granite and corian countertops. The master bath boasts a tiled walk-in shower with custom glass doors and the guest bath has a neatly tiled shower/bath combo. The unit also has newer doors and trim, crown moldings, plantation shutters, tile flooring and carpeting throughout!

The island-themed living room, dining room and bedroom furnishings will transport you to a beautiful island oasis on the inside while you enjoy the most amazing direct Gulf-front view of the ocean – nothing separates you from the vast ocean view except for some sand and a few swaying palms. This is the only top floor corner unit available for rent in this complex that can offer this incredible view. Watch dolphins jumping and hear the waves crashing while sitting in the comfortable patio furniture on the large private screened lanai. You will never want to leave!

You can also relax on the beach or in the larger than average size heated pool. Because Sand Pointe is a medium size complex (45 units), the pool is just a few steps away from your unit and pool chairs are always available. A few more steps on the wooden boardwalk and the expansive white sandy beach will surround you while you are mesmerized by the beautiful crystal blue Gulf. Take advantage of our beach chairs, umbrella, beach towels, and easy to use beach wagon to transport everything you will need for your relaxing afternoon on the beach.

If you are looking for activities, Sanibel Island has everything one could wish for and Sand Pointe is only minutes away from...excellent restaurants, golfing, tennis, fishing, boating, shopping, bike paths (22 miles of paved trails), canoes, theatrical productions, the renowned J.N. 'Ding Darling' National Wildlife Refuge & Bird Sanctuary and the Point Ybel Lighthouse.

After your return from a relaxing day, you can enjoy the 47 inch flat screen LED SMART HDTV and DVD player in the living area or the 32 inch flat screen LED TVs in each bedroom together with free wireless Internet. You will also find a full size front-loading washer and dryer in the laundry closet as well as a drying rack for your bathing suits.

Whether you are looking for an escape from the winter months, a romantic getaway or an unforgettable family vacation, the possibilities are endless in Sanibel Island and the memory is forever. Sink your toes into the white sand, go shelling, build a sandcastle, charter a fishing expedition or ride your bike along the Gulf shore, then watch the most spectacular sunset from the lanai. So hang the 'Gone To the Beach' sign on your email box to sign out from the everyday and check in to the tranquility of Sanibel Island.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had the most perfect time in the most perfect place, we enjoyed every minute of our stay. Your condo is just stunning and so well equipped, with so many thoughtful touches we can’t thank you enough for letting us share it.

The view from the condo was amazing and I have to say we spent quite a bit of time just sitting on the balcony drinking coffee or sipping wine, it was so relaxing just watching the sea and wildlife. We also spent most mornings walking the beach and collecting shells, just a perfect way to start the day!

We really hope to return to what is a very special place, so thank you again for providing such a lovely condo for rent.

Relaxing week on Sanibel Island

  • 5 of 5

This condo unit at Sand Pointe is beyond clean, which for me is the most important thing when it comes to being able to relax while on vacation! The unit has everything you need in the kitchen and every room is comfortable and the furniture is nice! It has a great ocean front view with a table and chairs which we used more often than the ones inside the condo! The condo also had beach towels and loads of chairs and sand toys which was super helpful as I could take all that off my packing list. The owner of this condo is helpful and I can tell she honestly cares about the upkeep of her condo as well as her guests enjoying their stay while on the island. Can't say enough good things!

Beautiful Sand Pointe 137

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd year at this condo and we loved it even more than last year. You are so close to the water and can hear the waves hitting the beach. This year we saw the dolphins playing near the shore on several days. Kari maintains the unit with everything you need and quality furnishings. Sanibel is our go to location for shopping, biking and the beautiful beach. We immediately booked for next year!

Thank you Kari as well for your welcome email and prompt response to any inquires.

Owner's Response: Mary Kay, Thank you for your prompt 5 star review of your recent stay at SP137. We always love to welcome return guests. I am thrilled to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed your lanai time. The lanai and spending time taking in the beauty of and listening to the Gulf and beach is one of our favorite things about the condo. I also appreciate your kind words. I will ensure the lanai is ready and waiting for you next March ;). Kari

Four in a Row!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I'm not sure we can add to our previous THREE reviews, but we'll try. The fact that this is our fourth year in a row and we have already reserved for next year should speak volumes for how nice this rental is. Hard to actually say "rental" because it certainly feels like our home away from home. Even though weather is beyond ones control, it could not have been more perfect. Cool nights and warm days just added to the surreal atmosphere that Sanibel exudes. Even though the unit was already top notch, Kari is meticulous of the condition and even added some upgrades to some items. The pool was refinished and was refreshing and in perfect shape. We feel so fortunate that we found this place and even more fortunate to be able to continue our Thanksgiving tradition here in Sanibel. All of the restaraunts we visited continue to exceed expectations. Do not miss a lunch at Grandma Dots in the marina. Because the kitchen is so well equipped it was easy for us to cook some meals at "home". Breakfast on the lanai was a daily event - watching the dolphins hunt in the shallows or just watching boats passing by. Another amazing benefit of this unit is that it faces due South so you can see the sunrise and sunset all from the same balcony!! Obviously, we cannot say enough good things about staying here so do not hesitate to rent this unit IF you are lucky enough to find availability!!

Owner's Response: Keith, Thank you for the prompt five star review of your stay at Sand Pointe 137. We are always so happy when our guests return to their "home away from home" each year. We make every effort to ensure the condo is well-maintained. As you know, watching the dolphins while eating breakfast on the lanai is one of my favorite things to do on a daily basis too ;). Thank you once again for selecting our condo for your annual trip to Sanibel. We look forward to your return next November! Kari

Exceptional accomodations and fun vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Everything one needs for a wonderful vacation is contained in this condo. It's a beautiful place and the view is incredible. Additionally, the owner, Kari is wonderful! Even though the condo has a three-ring binder containing all the information necessary, she responds immediately to any calls for questions (I couldn't find the storage unit number that contained the beach toys, and called Kari, but all of the information was all there in the 3-ring binder, as I later discovered). VIP Realty provides all of the current details, as well as starter pack for basic needs products, such as paper towels, laundry detergent, and dishwasher soap, etc. Again, it's there printed or sent in an e-mail--just read! The entire condo has everything one needs for a great vacation--from the Keurig coffee machine, the full sized washer-dryer, to the drying rack and grill on the porch. It's just like home, only better!

We rented a kayak from Yolo, which is a sister company of Billy's Bike rental. Yolo means "you only live once" which holds true at Sanibel. My daughters, age 9 and 12, learned to paddle in a kayak on this trip. We loved the restaurant, Over Easy, as well as the stores near it. Everyone on the island was friendly and all of our "stuff" was safe as the people on the island are very respectful (we had to leave out our kayak and other belongings, which remained untouched the entire time). I did not want to leave . I wish I could stay here forever. My children and husband also loved the vacation. We spent many hours swimming and snorkeling. This is the best place ever! Again, i would love to be here longer, another week perhaps, if not forever, but sadly I have commitments elsewhere. This is an awesome rental for smaller or younger families. It has been exactly as expected, and more.

Future renters, do not hesitate to book if you actually run across this rental when searching for a place to stay.. It is one of the best on Sanibel!!!! I hope to book again in the near future!

Owner's Response: Celeste, Thank you for your prompt review of your stay last week at SP 137. I am so happy to know that you enjoyed your stay to the fullest. I am also glad that "everything (you) needed for a wonderful vacation was contained in this condo". I am glad you put the Keurig coffee machine, the full sized washer-dryer, the drying rack and the grill on the porch to good use. Thank you also for the kind words. I make every effort to respond to guest requests as soon as possible. I am glad that I could be of assistance. I can totally relate to your comment of not wanting to leave. The good news it that you will return soon! I look forward to seeing your inquiry on your next return trip to Sanibel. Many thanks, Kari

Sand Pointe #137-Best view in the complex!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was wonderful! It was clean and spacious. We had 3 adults and 2 kids (18 & 16) and it was a perfect size. The view is incredible-every morning with coffee on the lanai was a treat. The property is smaller than some and that made it perfect-it was quiet during turtle time :) Elevator is definitely a plus being on the 3rd floor when "moving in/out" but we usually took the stairs which was great exercise. Kitchen was well equipped with various items. Shopped at Publix across the causeway before getting to the island for lower prices.

I would definitely recommend this complex and this unit in particular. It really does have the best view-top floor. I spoke to lots of people at the pool and so many were return guest of the same complex...saying this one is the best. Kari was great in responding to my inquires, a pleasure to work with.

Owner's Response: Wendy, Thank you for your five star review of your stay. It is always wonderful to receive feedback from guests regarding the condo. I am happy that the condo easily accommodated your party of five. As I have mentioned before, Inagree with you that the "view is incredibe" and I too enjoy my tea every morning on the lanai. The Sand Pointe complex is a gem as it is smaller in scale and located on West Gulf Drive so it is less congested. I look forward to welcoming you back to SP 137 on your next trip to Sanibel. Thanks again! Kari

Relaxing vacation with a great view

  • 5 of 5

My family of four had a wonderful time in Sanibel. The condo was tastefully decorated, clean, and had an assortment of necessary kitchen items. We were grateful for the beach towels, beach chairs, and beach umbrella. The view from the condo is beautiful, and we could see dolphins playing in the morning from our lanai. My daughters are older, and there was plenty of room for all of us. The DVR came in handy, too. We enjoyed a family movie night. The island's grocers were helpful, especially Bailey's, but we also visited the Publix for more options, which was just over the causeway. We had a fantastic time, and we never had to worry about rushing to get a lounge chair on the beach, like we frequently do at resorts. We hope to make it back again, even if it's as empty nesters!

Owner's Response: Laura, Thank you so much for your review of your stay. I am happy to hear that your family had "a wonderful time". It sounds like the beach towels, beach chairs, and beach umbrella can in handy for your beach excursions. I love sitting on the lanai in the morning watching the dolphins and pelicans - priceless! I look forward to welcoming you back to Sand Pointe 137 on your next trip to Sanibel (as a family or as empty nesters!). Have a wonderful summer! Kari
