Sundial condo description

Paradise awaits you on Sanibel Island, with a captivating view of the ocean and grounds from your private screened lanai at this fully furnished Sundial Condo. This one bedroom/one bath 2nd floor unit is just 60 yards from the beach and the free Association pool! The location is truly ideal!

Because of it's location directly on the Gulf of Mexico, the beach access, heated swimming pool and luxurious grounds, Sundial has been a family vacation destination for years. Included with our condo are free high-speed wireless internet, access to coin operated washer &dryer, a fully equipped kitchen, bed and bath linens, on-site restaurant, spa and tennis.

This condo is one building back from the Gulf, but without the high rates of Gulf front.

Located at the Sundial resort on Sanibel Island, your unit 207 in Bldg. I can accommodate up to sleeps up to 4 people.

In a recent review by U.S. News and World Report, ranking the eight best beaches in Florida, Sanibel's beach ranked in the number 1 spot!

The Sundial Resort is directly on the ocean side. The beach access is just a two-minute walk away from your unit. So if you want to run back from the beach to your condo to get a snack or take a break from the sun, you are just steps away from your home away from home.

The free association heated pool (pictured on this listing) has comfortable lounges, tables and umbrellas.

Your fully-furnished condo is on the 2nd floor and well equipped for all your vacationing needs. There is a queen-size bed in the bedroom area, separated from the living room and separated by an accordion door. There is a TV in the bedroom area and a TV/DVD and queen-size sleeper sofa in the living room. Beach towels, beach chairs, umbrella, beach toys, tennis racquets are available for your use.

After a game of tennis, shelling, biking or round of golf, cool off with a swim in your pool. A barbeque grill area is located nearby. Enjoy star-lit walks on the beach and waking up to the surf and ocean breezes in a relaxing environment. But most of all, your stay with us on Sanibel Island will help you forget how to work and remember how to play and have fun again!

This unit is conveniently near everything you want to see and do including the picturesque Sanibel Lighthouse, Ding Darling Wildlife Preserve, golf, bike paths, tennis, shopping and great boating and fishing. There is a restaurant on site in the resort and no shortage of unique and tasty dining establishments within easy reach of your condo.

It is perfect for:

-55+, singles, adventure seekers, couples and honeymooners, a girls' getaway, families with small children.

For your conveniance we use a local management company to ensure that your stay is pleasant and comfortable.

The beach is wonderful and goes on forever in both directions. We are part of a beachfront complex......the beach, your pool and the parking are free! There is a restaurant, tennis courts and spa at the resort open for your use. There is a fee for some of the other amenities in the resort such as the work out room, the resort pool, and bike rentals but most of our guests just enjoy the beach and our free association pool and other activities on the island.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: My wife and I had our 50th anniversary a few years ago! We have 3 grown children and 5 beautiful grandchildren and all of us love Sanibel! We love walking out the door of our condo to the beach and shelling. Sanibel was rated Number 1 of Florida's best beaches recently by U.S. News and World Report. That is why we are here! We want the best! This is it!

                  Why the Owner Chose Sundial:
                  We have chosen Sanibel Island as our home away from home because of it's casual elegance, and year round appeal. The location is ideal....at a beachside resort and just steps to the beach and pool. Plus we like having an on- site restaurant, convenience store and tennis courts. In the winter the weather is warm and mild. In the summer the tropical breezes, occasional afternoon showers, and warm gulf waters soothe your soul. Spring and Fall are the best kept secret. Low rates, small crowds and some of the most pleasant weather helps you relax, enjoy, and maybe stay two weeks rather than just one. Our condo on Sanibel Island is unique! It is safe, a short stroll to the beach and offers a lovely and free ocean-side pool. The Sundial Resort is next door and charges for use of its pool and other facilities, but its pool often crowded and noisy. Neither we nor our guests typically use that one. The beach, second to none, is famous for its shells, and the 'Sanibel Stoop.' Sanibel Island is a top vacation destination and offers something for everyone in my family. There is always something to do, or not do. It is so beautiful here that sometimes you just want to lay on the beach with a book, or do absolutely nothing but enjoy the scenery and tropical splendor. I love to watch the pelicans and herons fish for their dinner. To sum up, Sanibel Island has everything you can wish for that makes up a super vacation. In all the time I have spent here with my family, we have never had a disappointing visit!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  We bought this wonderful condo for a getaway--cozy, and perfect for 2. It can accomodate up to 4 which makes it great for a girls' getaway or a family with one or two small children. We love having guests enjoy the condo and Sanibel. Here is one recent comment: - Condo very nice. Review submitted: February 4, 2010 Date of arrival: September 12, 2009 'Just wanted to say the we enjoyed the week in Sanibel and your condo was very nice. All of the restaurants you suggested were very good and the dolphin cruise on Captiva Cruises was delightful. Thanks again!' KW from Long Island
