About Paul W.

Born and raised in Longmont Colorado, we call Fort Collins, Colorado home now. Graduated from Colorado State University in 2000. Married the love of my life in 2002 and now have three well behaved 'energized' boys. Love fishing, golf and spending time with my family at the beach in Sanibel!

Paul W. purchased this condo in 2014

Why Paul W. chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Our family realized a long time ago that our best vacations all included a few key ingredients: amazing views, a great beach, spending time on the water and tons of amenities. Mother nature can also play a role… that’s exactly why we chose Sanibel Island as our vacation destination. The bay views from our condo at Mariner Pointe make this the most tranquil and enjoyable vacation Imaginable. Being on the ground-level is an absolute must, it connects you to your environment and allows easy access for the kids to play/fish and for the family to relax on the boardwalk. It also makes it very easy and convenient with luggage and groceries. We love Sanibel for the wonderful water views and white sandy world famous beaches! When you come you will want to explore the island and visit all the great “shelling” beaches all the way to Captiva. I have some great recommendations I am always happy to share with guests. We pride ourselves in a very simple rental process and look forward to hearing about how much you loved Sanibel.

What makes this condo unique

Great Tru-Surface tennis courts right out the front door. Walk a little farther and watch the fishing boats dock up at the Mariner Pointe private stretch of the inlet canal. Or, better yet bring your own boat and dock it here for your entire stay. (very nominal fee) You will love exploring the island of Sanibel and the best way to do it is renting bikes for the family from Billy’s bike rental. This waterfront suite was Completely redone in May 2014 with a modern casual “beach house” design! Come enjoy new beds, linens, bath accessories, hickory floors fresh paint and new quartz counters. HDTV’S in every room! Time to relax and enjoy all that Sanibel has to offer, we would be happy to have you stay! If you’re like us you won’t want to leave!

Our Stay

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as described when we arrived.The unit was clean and we had no complaints.You can literally fish out your front door if you want to or walk to the pier,The beaches are a little shelly so water shoes are a good idea if you have tender feet.We were told that due to the state draining Lake Okeechobee that the water in Sanibel was a little cloudy and to drive to Captiva about 10 miles up the road. The first time we got there after noontime and there were no parking spots.The second time we got there at 9 am and plenty of parking.You could see 6 feet down of clear water and fish swimming at your feet.Bring your credit card,It's $4.00 an hour per car. ( You can park your car on one of the pull offs on both sides of the causeway and fish,swim or cook out for free.)The pools at the unit were spotless and the water was warm.The property manager also was very friendly and willing to answer any questions you had. As for eating out The Island Cow is packed morning noon and night. Good food priced reasonably.We had no complaints at all and would recommend this unit to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation.

Mariner Pointe condo - great location - perfect vacation stay.

  • 5 of 5

Mariner Pointe condo is in a great location, well appointed, and had all the amenities described. The views from the large windows in the dining area was perfect for watching spectacular sunrises and sunsets, plus the plethora of wildlife that swam and flew by. The well equipped kitchen had everything needed to prepare all the fresh seafood and produce purchased at the Farmers Market, a pleasant surprise find on the island. Paul was spot on with all his recommendations of the island, much appreciated. We will plan another visit to Sanibel Island and this property will definitely be our go-to choice.

Excellent family vacation experience

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful condo with very comfortable beds, incredible view, well equipped kitchen. Paul was lightening fast in responding to our only one concern with the dryer -- repair person at the condo within an hour. My parents, our 9 and 13 yo boys and my husband and I had the time of our lives!! We hope to be back soon! Thank you so much Paul!

Everything about our stay was AWESOME!!! The property was just as it was described. Mariner Pointe is lovely. The view is spectacular. My husband was able to rent a boat and have it delivered right to the dock which was seconds from our condo! What could be better! We love Sanibel Island so in order to explore all of the island we never rent at the same place twice but maybe someday after we retire that will change!! Thank you Paul!!!!

Well maintained and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The condo is in wonderful condition with views to the bay. Well equipped kitchen, comfortable bed, lovely windows surrounding dining area. Very easy access to go off the island to visit places in SW Florida. Less convenient with traffic if one wishes to walk on the beaches.
