Great end unit condo steps from the beach. The water is warm and the shelling is great.
This beautifully decorated condo sleeps 4 with a king bed in the bedroom and queen sleeper sofa in the living room. Only a 2-minute stroll to the water's edge. Some Sundial units have lanais, others don't -- OURS DOES! For returning guests: New ceiling fans added in 2014 in bedroom, living room, and screened balcony.
Sanibel Island is world famous for the shelling beaches, but there are also many island attractions such as DING Darling Wildlife Refuge, Sanibel Island Marina, Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum, Beachview Golf Course, Dunes Golf Course, and Sanibel Lighthouse.
Courtyard view, but walk to the beach without leaving the property. Off-street parking is free for guest vehicle and a hang-tag will be provided at check-in.
Just a short drive once you cross over the Sanibel Causeway into paradise at the Sundial of Sanibel. Here, guests can relax on the sand or at the beach-front pool beside the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
Popular activities are shelling, biking on the 24 miles of bike paths, kayaking, fishing - bird watching in Ding Darling and around the island, excursions to the out islands on Captiva Cruises and just relaxing.
If you have any specific ideas of things to do, just ask, we live just off the island and visit frequently.

About the owner: Pat and Alison Lees, owners
As long-time Fort Myers residents, we have been visiting Sanibel Island for years. We enjoy walking the beach and finding beautiful shells with the kids.
Why the Owner Chose Sundial: Flexible experience... the beach at the condo is quiet and family friendly with a beach-side pool setup with chairs and umbrellas for guests. If you want some action, beach-front restaurants featuring live entertainment and full service tiki bar are just a short stroll down the beach at the Sundial Resort.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: Sundial of Sanibel is on the beach..no roads to cross, no car ride, just walk right out to the beach. Convenient to many island attractions. Walk to Sundial Resort restaurants.
Sanibel Island is just amazing. There are still no traffic lights on the island. You can get almost everywhere by bicycle. The water is warm most of the year and the shells that wash up on the shore are spectacular.
