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 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!

Property was better than pictures. Beautifully decorated with great views. Renee was great, checking in via email a few times during the week. Condo was stocked with spices & essentials which we were not expecting. We would highly recommend this property.

Pointe Santo de Sanibel was a wonderful place to stay for our vacation. It was a quiet, ocean/beachfront condo that is very beautifully decorated. The beach was private and just a step away from the condo. The screened in balcony was one of my favorite spots; especially at night; sitting and listening to the waves. Renee checked in every couple days to see if we needed anything -- . The condo is so comfortable that you don't ever have to leave the entire time you are there. We drove around the island and took in the sights; and dined at a few restaurants along the way. The week went by so fast -- I was sad to see it come to an end. But there is ALWAYS next summer~

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!
