About Paul

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 purchased this condo in 2014

Why Paul 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!

A little piece of heaven.

  • 5 of 5

This condo is located in Mariner Pointe overlooking the bay between Sanibel and Ft.Myers. It is a fantastic location with views of the bay filled with birds and Dolphins. The unit is very comfortable with a master bedroom and two small bedrooms. The third bedroom has bunk beds.

We had a couple of minor problems which the owner responded to quickly and completely when we contacted him by email.

Mariner Pointe is a great location with a board walk and fishing pier on site. It's hard to beat!

Great location, bare bones but livable.

  • 3 of 5

The condo is small, the neighbors are very nice and friendly. The supplies need to be reviewed. Many coffee cups but three tall glasses for four people. Paintings fell off the wall because hung with one hanger. Towels were old and stained. Just needs a dust up.

Owner's Response: We just purchased a new king Icomfort Serta for the condo and now have two very comfortable king beds in both rooms. The canvas painting in the second bedroom was moved in the shuffle. It only weighs a pound and we thought it should hang okay on one hook... apparently not. (We will add another right away) The condo is fully stocked. Some of the most recent additions; a new sofa sleeper, new table & chairs, new king Mattress and headboard. We also just purchased a Keurig coffee maker and new utensils for the kitchen. The condo has a great floor plan and is furnished to scale, however when/if you add two fold-away cribs to the master bedroom it is going to feel pretty small. We have a constant rotation of new towels and it sounds like we need to pull a couple out of the mix ;) Thanks again for staying and the feedback, it helps us make the condo as liveable and comfortable as possible for future guests.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great location- cozy three bedroom end unit with a lovely view of the bay. Enjoyed watching the dolphins, and, manatees cruising through.

The complex has a private fishing pier - spent quite a few hours up there, and, also in the swimming pool.

Lot of great restaurants, and, fun things to do in Sanibel.

My granddaughter- for that matter all of us enjoyed collecting sea shells on the beaches in Sanibel, and, Captiva.

The condo was clean, comfortable and, had most utilities one would need.

Would highly recommend the place , especially for a family with children or grandchildren!

Thank you - Paul.

The waterfront ground level suite was just as advertised! The view sold us & we enjoyed it immensely

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Mariner Pointe. We picked the location because of the view and it lived up to our expectations. The location was a good one... easy to get all directions on the only. Particularly convenient to Gramma Dot's, the Lighthouse Beach and Pinocchio's. We made use of the boardwalk and did see a few dolphins and a manatee during our stay. We had five people and the three bedrooms were nice... allowing for individual space. We would consider this unit for our next stay in Sanibel.

A few suggestions would include better lighting -- especially on the enclosed lanai and bedrooms, freeing up closet or cabinet space in the second bedroom (neither were usable) and an upgrade of bathroom linens. We did also have an issue with the clothes dryer consistently working during our stay.

This unit at Mariner Pointe was as advertised and contributed to our wonderful week in Sanibel.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the great review! I just returned from staying in the condo and was able to locate the outlets that the light switch controlled in both bedrooms. We now have lamps controlled from the switches in both bedrooms (great suggestion - thx!!) The second bedroom closet did fill up a bit but mostly from beach chairs, umbrellas, beach toys etc. that we provide for our guests. Had dryer serviced when I saw this and it is working great now. The views are what sold us on this condo! We actually saw multiple dolphins from standing inside the lanai this trip!
