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!

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!

AWESOME!!!!

  • 5 of 5

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.

As pretty as the picture!

  • 5 of 5

My brother and I treated our 89 year old Mom to a week in the Florida sun at this beautiful condo. The property was as advertised - very comfortable and picturesque. We especially enjoyed the dolphin sightings and the frequent pelican fly-bys from the breakfast table. It was a great launch point for visiting Ding Darling Wildlife refuge (guided boat trip on Tarpon Bay and 5 mile car tour) and for shelling on the beach. We stocked the kitchen with breakfast and lunch items from the Publix grocery store just before the causeway to the island and ate out most nights. (The grouper with boursin cheese and spinach at Gramma Dot's was our favorite meal of the week.) The pool is kept in the mid 80s and my mother enjoyed a swim with the noodles stored in the condo. We also availed ourselves of the beach chairs, beach umbrella and beach towels. The condo has 2 small sets of steps to enter and we had to hold her arm as she negotiated these (no railing). This was the only detractor (and a pretty minor one at that.) Would definitely recommend this home to anyone interested in a nice island get away and some great seafood.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean and well maintained. The property also offered great privacy which led to great and enjoyable vacation. It was great to see the Dolphins and Manatees go by on a daily bases. At times the Dolphins would break the surface putting on a show. The fishing was also great both from the peer and the docks. We caught a number of species such as snappers, groupers, snooks, catfish and a host of others. The stay offered a very relaxing vacation and the island offers a host of things for everyone to enjoy.

There are very few locations on the island that will compete with the amenities, views and conveniences of Mariner Pointe. The canal and bay by our complex is an absolute dolphin watching paradise. We love having Dave, the Mariner Pointe property manager living on-site.
