Gulf Beach condo description

Crossing the causeway bridge to Sanibel Island always feels like leaving all the stress in the world behind. Our restful Gulf Beach condo has only 14 units and is located on a quiet stretch of beach on the desirable East End of the island, far away from the public areas.

Our unit has been completely renovated with new carpeting and living room furniture, a very well equipped kitchen, a brand new master bedroom king size bed, and a walk-in shower in the master bathroom.

Watch the pelicans dive and the dolphin play from your Gulf front, screened-in lanai (you can view the Gulf from the lanai, living room, dining area, kitchen, and master bedroom). Walk the 12 miles of white sand, seashell bestrewn beach (the lighthouse and fishing pier are a scant 20 minute walk from your doorstep) or ride the 26 miles of Sanibel Island's bike trails (start just across the street from the condo).

The condo has all the amenities you could desire. Full size front loading washer and dryer. High speed internet service with Wi-Fi and your own Windows 7 computer and printer. Large Hi-Def Comcast cable TV in the living room with DVR and a Blu-Ray DVD player. Flat screen TVs with DVD players in both bedrooms. Stereo speakers for your IPOD or MP3 player. Large paperback library and good selection of puzzles and board games. Hair dryers. Private covered parking space next to elevator. Beach towels. Ground level storage room in which you will find beach chairs and sand toys. Celebrate your escape to paradise with a glass of thecomplementary champagne.

Visit our website or give us a call at 239-472-1347. We would love to tell you why we love this beautiful tropical island.

Shortly before your arrive, we will send you our 'Bon Voyage' letter detailing our favorite places-to-go, things-to-do, and, of course, our favorite restaurants of the over fifty on the islands (We live here and try to visit them all; it's a tough job, but somebody has to do it).

Have a wonder-filled Sanibel Island vacation!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1984

                      About the owner: We fell in love with Sanibel on a business trip in 1983. We returned a few weeks later to buy our first condo, Gulf Beach #103. We raised both our daughters, Chelsea and Sabrina, from infancy with numerous trips to Sanibel (until school started and teachers expressed displeasure on their absences. In 1999, we decided to move to Sanibel and we have lived here year round since. We hope you too will grow to love the island as much as we do. Elaine and Dave

                      Why the Owner Chose Gulf Beach:
                      Gulf Beach is located well away from the larger resorts and public areas. With only 14 units sharing the heated pool, there is seldom a crowd during your sunbathing. Located less than a mile from the end of the causeway road means getting on and off the island is easy and fast. Above all, the fantastic view of the Gulf endeared us to the condo.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      We try to make your vacation stay at Gulf Beach #103 as relaxing as possible. We have a digital lock on our unit so that you need not stop somewhere to pick up the key. We also leave the key to our storage compartment located on the ground level. Inside you will find beach chairs, sand toys and other beachy things to make your day at the shore more fun.
