Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a great condo in a very special area of Florida's Gulf coast! Sanibel Island offers beautiful beaches, a laid-back feeling, natural surroundings (not overly commercial) and a serene place to get away from it all. This condo has a great gulf front

location with beautiful gulf views. It is our second stay in this particular condo and we have been very pleased both times!

A beautiful screened in porch overlooks the beach out to the Gulf. A spiral staircase leads to a sunning deck holding 4 lounge chairs. The view is fantastic. Taking the stairs or the elevator from the condo leads onto the beach and to the Gulf of Mexico. Don't forget, Sanibel island is world famous for its shells. In addition there is the John 'Ding' Darling wild life sanctuary that can be visited. There are bike paths crossing the island. There is a club house at the Pointe Santo de Sanibel swim area along with the pool and spa/hot tub. Other activites include outside grills, shuffle board, horse shoes. The club house has scheduled children's activities. There is so much to offer in the paradise getaway! The kitchen just underwent a total remodel in September 2011. The rest of the condo is scheduled for remodel this summer of 2013! Rentals are from Saturday to Saturday!

We spent the month of February at Pointe Santo in unit E-46. This was our fourth February stay in E-46 and it was just as lovely and comfortable as ever. The owner is always very accommodating and helpful. The unit is beautifully furnished and has everything you could need for a wonderful vacation stay. We highly recommend a visit to E-46 Pointe Santo.

Fantastic, upscale, big, clean, comfortable, quiet....the BEST place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I'm not sure where to start except to say that the pictures don't do this place justice. We (family of four) have stayed in Destin almost yearly the past 6 years. Great at first, but no shells, and after a few years, overcrowded beaches. We thought we loved Destin, but Sanibel came along and stole our heart, as well as this place at Pointe Santo.

The owner, Renee, is responsive. She doesn't send an automated response. She isn't a third world country hired customer representative. You get real responses to your questions and a person that genuinely cares that you are enjoying yourself and that your needs are met. She also decorated the condo. It's exceptional, comfortable, large, and awesome. My wife LOVE loved it. If we were able to choose a second home, this place would be it. You could put this place anywhere on the map, and it would be great. It overlooks the beach which is RIGHT THERE. There is a storage closet with a Coleman cooler, an umbrella, chairs, flippers, boogie boards (we added two, I believe there are six now), basically, the essentials you need for the beach. The beach is not overcrowded and there are shells everywhere! The master bedroom is awesome and the master bath is almost the size of the master bedroom. The patio is screened in. A spiral staircase climbs to the roof for more places to sit and relax. There is an elevator to get you to ground level or up to the condo. The grounds it is on are kept up beautifully. The kitchen has everything...plates, mugs, silverware, pots, pans...just everything. No complaints. We are definitely hoping to return next summer. Thank you!!

Very nice

The condo was very nice, updated, clean, and comfy. The view was awesome. The building was dated and the elevator stuffy and small. The condo owner is very nice, accessible, and helpful. We loved our tIme there.

Great Location and what a view! The condo was immaculate and had everything we needed. We enjoyed time on the screened porch and the rooftop listening to the waves roll in. Renee was great about checking to see if we needed anything. Everything was perfect. Anxious for a return visit. Thanks for a great stay!

A Penthouse with a view

  • 5 of 5

We have been wanting to see Sanibel Island for years!!! My husband found this gem of a penthouse and we took the plunge and booked it. We could not have been MORE pleased with our stay in this penthouse condo.

First of all, Renee was so very helpful and excellent to work with. The condo is beautifully decorated and immaculate. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need. It is conveniently located to many excellent restaurants and a grocery store.

The condo is an oceanfront with beautiful panoramic views for days! It also has a private upper deck that has relaxing lounge chairs and a high table with chairs to enjoy your ocean scenery. The deck right off the condo is screened which was nice in helping to cut down on the "no seeums." Everyday we were able to watch the dolphins~either from our deck or down on the beach.

The beach area is beautiful and clean. There are shells to find for days!!!!! The owner also provided chairs and an umbrella for the beach. The owner has thought of just about everything you could possibly need and then provided it for your convenience.

We had a wonderful time and want to plan another trip there again!
