We enjoyed this condo very much!
We enjoyed this condo very much!
You can not go wrong in renting this condo. Everything was just as listed in the information. Andrea and Leslie were both so helpful and professional, and it was wonderful to have such a personal touch. The condo was very large and beautifully laid out and furnished, and it was very clean. It truly was a home away from home for a week! We especially enjoyed how comfortable the living area was for evenings in, and loved the storage closet downstairs off the covered parking space for beach chairs, umbrella, and sand toys, which were provided. There were also beach towels in the linen closet to use, which helps tremendously when you are travelling by air and do not need to pack these items. This was our second time to Sanibel, the first being 6-7 years previously, and this was the best condo. The view of the fountain area, pool and ocean was nice, and the lanai was huge, and great to hand swimsuits on at the end of the day. It was also perfect having the washer and dryer in the condo, where I was able to wash suits and towels each evening. Our favorite places we visited for dinner were Island Cow, the kids loved Island Pizza, the Mexican Cantina on Captiva, and RC Otters on Captiva. Also try Pinocchios ice cream, not to miss, it is outstanding! Additionally, we rented bikes from Billy's, and a boat from Port Sanibel Marina, which was a lot of fun! Thank you Andrea, Leslie, and your families for sharing this great condo with us, for a memorable vacation.

Wonderful time in Sanibel
Wonderful time in Sanibel
I am late submitting my review but the memories still are vivid. This unit was absolutely glorious! We were a group of 5 ladies celebrating our 50th birthdays. The accommodations were perfect! Perfect beach, perfect unit equipped with any and everything imaginable. Not only were the rooms big but the living area was comfortable with comfortable sitting for all night gab sessions. The owners were very accommodating. They will answer any questions and give wonderful suggestions. This is a reservation that you did not have to worry about. Rent this unit and have a fabulous time!

Manager response: Dear Laurie "and the girls" - Thank you for taking the time to post this. We love Sanibel, Sundial O-302 and have hosted incredibly wonderful guests. We try so hard and really appreciate it!!! Best, Andrea, Leslie, et al
We spent 4 nights , what a spacious condo and VERY well equipped with everything. Even a small storage room that held all the outside equipment. (I knew the sight had said umbrellas, chairs, pool toys etc but took us a while to figure out where they were!) I loved the fact the washer/dryer were in the condo itself. Why anyone would choose to stay next door at the Sundial Resort itself I do not know- we walked over there for an ice cream treat and with it undergoing an extensive renovation it was a mess. We were so glad to get back to our oasis. Loved our daily walks on the beach, very simply said WE LOVE Sanibel. Highly recommend this condo, the screened in lanai is also great, had all our meals there!

Manager response: Dear Paul and Jill - Sundial O-302 truly is an oasis! When you visit with us you see what you get - privacy, quiet, the pool, the beach, the lanai...ahhhhhhh! When you book through Sundial, the rentals are on a rotation basis and you haven't a clue as to which private owners condo you'll be placed in upon arrival. Our photos, our reviews, our guests...all are amazing!!! We thank you for taking the time to write this review and look forward to seeing you again soon - Andrea, Leslie, Neil, Bob, David, Dana, Jeremy, Aidan and Aliza
We just returned from a "too short" visit to this lovely Sanibel condo.......the rooms are all huge and beautifully decorated and the incredible view of the gulf, palm trees, pool and fountain from the very large lanai is breathtaking. The kitchen is fully stocked with anything you may need and I was very pleasantly surprised to find dish soap and dishwasher detergent, laundry soap, paper towels, etc. available for us too. Also tons of games, books and CD's.....and the notebooks they prepared on the island with things to do, restaurants, shopping, etc. You can tell the owners took a lot of TLC to make sure their guests enjoyed their stay and had everything at their fingertips (not to mention a phone call before your visit to see if you needed anything and suggestions for your visit). What a special touch! And I really appreciated having the beach umbrellas and chairs to use - and even a small cooler to take to the beach!! I will definitely recommend this condo to all my friends and I hope to return for a repeat stay soon! Thanks Andrea and Leslie for making our trip extra enjoyable!

Manager response: Dear Kathleen - Thank you so much for this terrific review! The purchase and upkeep and enjoyment of our incredible condo has been a beautiful collaborative effort between my sister Leslie and me. We enjoy being there. We enjoy caring for our "baby". We enjoy our guests!!! Meeting new people and cultivating relationships with people we otherwise would not have ever met is amazing! Sundial is magnificent - a gem, a jewel - and most people don't know it exists! Our condo truly is amazing - spacious - 1600+ square feet - the largest 2 bedroom in sundial. We appreciate knowing that we made a difference because we want to and really, really care...Best to you and look forward to seeing you again - Andrea, et al :-)
Love of the Island
Love of the Island
Our family has visited Sanibel Island seven times. We absolutely love coming down and just sitting on the beach and soaking up the sun. The condo we stayed in this year was a 2 bedroom and the lliving room and dining room were very spacious. We would definitly stay in this condo agian, but not in High Season. We were not able to buy the ammenties of the resort to use the kayaks, stand up paddle boards, etc. When we made the reservations, I called the resort to ask about the ammenites and purchasing them. They said sure, but forgot to leave out a little information that if the resort is almost full any one who has not booked directly through the resort would not be able to purchase the extra ammenties. That didn't affect our stay we had a wonderful time anyway.

Manager response: Dear Christine and Steven and family, We have been visiting Sanibel for years as well and purchased and upgraded and refurnished and refurbished our home away from home Sundial O-302 since we purchased it as sisters in October 2011. We have never once used the Sundial Resort property for anything. We have our own pool and beach and go to Ding Darling Nature Preserve to rent kayaks for manatee watching and go to the Sanibel Marina for boating and waverunning and sunset cruises around Estero Bay. We stay on Sanibel at least once every 2 months because we love it and also to make sure that our home is special and spotless. We rent bikes 1/2 mile from our home and tour the Island staying out way past dark hitting the ice cream place on the way home. Like any tropical paradise, there are times when Sanibel may be busier, but Sundial building O is always quiet, overlooking the pool and the gulf and the sunrise and sunset. We welcome you back at any time. You were incredible guests! We look forward to making other suggestions for day trips and exploration including Sanibel Recreation Center - the best! For now, our best regards, Andrea and Leslie and the family
Absolutely wonderful home in paradise
Absolutely wonderful home in paradise
From the moment our family opened the door to this beautiful home we were amazed at what we found. The rooms were large and spacious, the furniture was like new, the home was spotless, and the layout was great for family activities. There is a large screened in porch overlooking the lake, swimming pool, and most important directly overlooking the palm trees and gulf beach. We watched beautiful sunrises every day from the very comfortable porch furniture and enjoyed meals there in the evenings. My wife and I managed to land in the master bedroom which was very large with direct access to the porch. We left the door open and could hear the waves and feel the breeze as we slept. We shared the large walkin closet and our onsuite bathroom/shower with our family which made things very accomodating for all. The beach was practically attached to the condo over a boardwalk through beautiful tropical plants. The swimming pool was very nice for end of the day relaxing overlooking the beach. Everything was provided in the home for your enjoyment - towels and linens, dishes, blankets, pillows, barbecue, beach furniture, etc. It was as if you were instantly at home in paradise. The condominiun complex itself was very nice with paved parking, elevators, and easy access to everything in Sanibel. Our rental through Lighthouse Realty was very pleasant and the staff were very helpful. One of the most rewarding aspects of this facility was the personal attention from the owners of the home during our vacation. They contacted us before our visit to offer suggestions on things for our family to enjoy and followed up to see how we were doing. This truly was a wonderful experience for our family.

Manager response: Dear Brad and family - It was our absolute pleasure having you as our guests. We can hardly wait to be sitting on the porch once again. Thank you for your review. Leslie and I have only owned O-302 since October of 2011, but we have met such wonderful people through our condo. You and your family are certainly amongst them! Our best wishes to all of you. We look forward to seeing you again out your way, our way or back on Sanibel! Andrea
Beautiful condo well located in Sanibel.
Beautiful condo well located in Sanibel.
We loved this condo. Very comfortable and well decorated with a lot of nice personal touches from the owners. Porch was spacious and well furnished, much better than other units in the development. The managers could do a better job of stocking kitchen and laundry in the unit. They stock it with what they call a "Starter Kit" which is just that. Enough to get by for a couple of days only. Apparently any extra soap, toilet tissue, cleaning supplies, food wrap, spices, sugar, soda or beer left by the previous renters is cleared out by the cleaning crew. Also, condo management provides no luggage carts so you're on your own getting your gear from the parking area to the condo. These are minor items but irriations all the same. Also, found the pool deck to be pretty small and with only the slightest of shade for us fair skinned visitors. More than once all the chairs at the pool were occupied. Beach access was great and the shelling was generally as good as we remember. Fishing off the lighthouse pier was good and convenient to the parking if you don't mind paying for it and if you beat the crowds. We were there the week of President's Day and the driving and restaurants we're pretty impossible. The following week quieted down a lot but we suggest that you still go out early to eat. I you plan on visiting Sanible this is a great property.

Manager response: Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review! We are really big on CLEAN!!! Everything must be spotless and clean for our family and our guests!!! There are busier times and slower times on Sanibel for sure, but our home is on the gulf away from everything. We provide umbrellas and beach chairs for the beach for sunning and funning or hiding in the shade. Thank you so much for being our guests. It is our pleasure to share our hideaway with you.

This 2 BR condo was very nice. Super clean! The owners were very helpful and accommodating! MBR was spacious, although King bed was a bit soft for us. The layout of the unit was excellent and the view from the spacious balcony was very nice. If you are a Sanibel Island fan, this is the spot for you.

Manager response: Thank you so much for your review! I remember when we purchased O-302 in October 2011 and we were doing renovations and purchasing mattresses, my sister and I had different tastes regarding softness and hardness, so we compromised trying to please each other and all guests...not an easy task! We are glad that you enjoyed the Sanibel Serenity and the beauty and view and comfort otherwise...our very best wished to both of you and thank you again for visiting with us...Andrea, Leslie, et al
Your place was lovely and Leslie and the team could not have been more accommodating. We would happily go back and stay in this condo and would recommend it to our Family and Friends.

We just spent the week at this condo. Everything was as advertised and hassel-free. The property was clean and the condo is very comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need if you want to cook. The owners called prior to when we left to see if we had any questions which I thought was nice. I would definitely stay here again.

Year Purchased: 2011
About: We are 2 families in NY/NJ whose collective five fantastic kids love Sanibel!
Sanibel Island is the best vacation spot! We're right on the beach, steps from our pool (and should you choose to use it - resort - which for a fee allows entrance to tennis and larger more occupied pool). The airport is a breeze (no rental car shuttle - cars are right there!). There are tons of cute, fun restaurants. 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 as if we're in the Caribbean.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
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 facilities)
