About Leslie and Andrea

We are 2 families in NY/NJ whose collective five fantastic kids love Sanibel! We are super excited about this 100% updated and modern condo with direct gulf view. We go out of our way to provide you and your family with more than you would expect from this top-of-the-line condo.

Leslie and Andrea purchased this condo in 2014

Why Leslie and Andrea chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Sanibel Island is the best vacation spot - that's why travel expert Arthur Frommer named it the #1 vacation destination in the world! We're super close to the beach, which is steps from our pool. The newly renovated Sundial resort is right next door, which features several restaurants and 2 bars open for your use. There are tons of cute, fun restaurants on the island. You can bike the whole island. Sanibel doesn't feel like the stereotype of 'Florida' - there are no chains on the island, the beach is totally unspoiled with famed amazing shelling, majority of the island is a preserve so there's lots of wildlife/birds - it's great for all age groups - It's quiet and peaceful, but water sports and nightlife are minutes away. Between the incredible endless beaches, exotic flora/fauna and wildlife, it really feels like the Caribbean.

What makes this condo unique

The beach is right there! People are friendly and easy-going. You feel yourself 'lighten' as you drive onto Sanibel over the causeway. Everything is minutes away. Great shopping & opportunities to work-out (Sanibel Recreation, biking, Sundial Resort restaurants/bar)

Convenient Beach Location and Nice Condo

  • 5 of 5

The Condo was conveniently located near the beach and the provided beach chairs/toys were very appreciated. The condo had everything we needed and the stay was quiet and comfortable. We were close to restaurants and shopping. Really enjoyed our stay, we will be back sometime soon.

Perfect family beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Sanibel Island. The condo was perfect and had plenty of chairs, umbrellas, and beach toys to keep everyone happy. The location was great and had easy access to the beach. We even saw two Dolphins! It was a wonderful place to spend the 4th of July weekend.

Expectations Exceeded!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful condo with ideal location! Everything from booking, to the welcome letter to the condo amenities was professional, precise and helpful. Made for a wonderful family experience. Loved the beach gear provided! Pool was gorgeous...and only steps from the beach so you can do both. Staff around the complex were incredibly friendly and helpful. Property was immaculate. Thanks so much to Andrea, Leslie and families for an awesome experience. Can't wait to get back!

Clean, comfortable, and convenient

  • 5 of 5

I’m mold sensitive so carefully picked a condo to rent that had more tile floors than carpet. I'm happy to say I had no allergy issues in the condo, finding it clean and well-maintained. Since we stayed indoors more than usual due to an unseasonably cold stretch of weather, I was grateful for the comfortably furnished condo. It had a beautiful view of the ocean and was a short walk to the beach. We made use of the full kitchen and typically cooked 2 of our 3 meals there. Our favorite restaurant on the island was the Island Cow. We thought the exhibits at the Bailey Matthew’s Shell Museum to be well worth the fee. The museum at the Darling Nature Refuge was also a good choice. We would definitely rent from this condo owner again and look forward to our next visit to Sanibel!

Winter break

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I take a trip each winter just to escape the snow and cold and chose Sanibel and Sundial this year. The Condo is just as described and has everything you need for a basic stay. The storage closet is packed with chairs and umbrella and even toys if you need them. There was a cooler we were thrilled to be able to use. The kitchen is fine and has basics but I didn't cook as it was just the two of us. The beds were comfortable and the beach is a short walk. We didn't use the pool but it was very busy when we walked by. We rented bikes from Billy's and they were great and delivered and picked up right to the condo. Cip's was our favorite restaurant. Andrea was easy to work with and I just mailed her a check directly so don't worry over that, she's great. Check in was easy and there is a reserved parking spot. The only thing we disliked was the internet speed is too slow for streaming, it's fine for other things like email or web browsing. Go to Sanibel and enjoy Paradise.

Great first visit to Sanibel for family

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful unit and very conveniently located. Pictures really do the justice more than the description. Four of us stayed in this condo just before the thanksgiving weekend and had great time. The island itself was quiet and peaceful. Pool is located just around the corner and the beach is just a minute's walk. Everything we needed was easily accessible. The condo itself is full of normal amenities that make you home right away. We also liked the beach gear in the storage closet that came handy. There is a lot to enjoy in Sanibel including food and the nature in addition to beaches. I would highly recommend this condo and would like to return. Andrea and Leslie are great to communicate with and they respond to questions really fast. Thank you.

Car: recommended

Steps away for your use are our Condo pool & pristine, shell-filled beach.

Sanibel Recreation Center is a 7 minute drive - great weight room, classes, lap pool & pool with slide..great value!

To avoid confusion, Sundial Resort is separate from our privately owned/managed Condo. Our 2BR Coastal condo rents at rates 30%-50% lower than comparable size units/views rented thru the Resort.

Our building, J is steps away from a large, pristine private Condo pool for your use (never crowded/always a chaise available!), gorgeous view of gulf from our kitchen, living room, master BR and screened lanai. We provide photos & precisely what to expect in décor, location & view. Sundial Resort rents out in rotation - you find out which unit, décor, location only at check-in.

Sundial Resort's waterfront restaurants and bar are open to you.

A Resort ameneties package is an option (confirm prices/availability with Resort) - $30/day per adult for use of their pool (though we love ours!) kayaks (Tarpon Bay is another option), golf discounts - even adding this option, our condo is a far superior value.

Must sees during your visit are the Sanibel Lighthouse, sunset drinks at the Mucky Duck on Captiva Island, dolphin cruises, a bike or drive thru the Ding Darling Preserve for amazing bird and other wildlife sightings.

We have lots of other recommendations including the best restaurants (we've tried literally all of them) share with you upon booking.

As another option, we also own/rent out a beautiful 2-bedroom condo in Ft Myers at the Marriot Sanibel Harbour Resort (with use of all amenities & spa/fitness facility there), right before the causeway onto Sanibel, with an awesome view of San Carlos Bay. Please check out listing 629862.
