Sandpebble condo description

A five-minute stroll takes you to Sanibel's famous shelling beach, just across the street from our condo unit. Recently completely redecorated in ''Sanibel style,'' the unit is beautifully appointed with original art, tile floors, high-end furnishings, and a completely renovated master kitchen with 'high end' appliances. The Sandpebble complex is quiet, intimate, and non-commercial -- just 23 units, most of which are owner occupied. The garden-like grounds run along the Sanibel river, with deck and eating/barbeque areas overlooking the Beachview golf course, across the water. The pleasant pool area has ample lounge chairs and tables. There is a tennis court on the property as well. We have an on-island rental agent who can address any questions or problems with a local phone call.

The unit is on the top (4th) floor, with the best view and no noises from units above. Our newly appointed lanai is newly tiled and has comfortable chairs for relaxation and an attractive dining area.

While we aren't directly on the beach, there is a ''peek-a-view'' of the Gulf of Mexico (see listing photo) through the palm trees across the street. From the other side of the condo, you'll see the bird and animal life along the river (including resident alligators!) and the golfers moving down the fairway. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the utensils a guest might need to whip up anything from microwave popcorn to a gourmet meal. The spacious living room has flat screen TV with DVD, stereo with MP3 connection, WiFi (and a wired high-speed internet connection), and a small library of cookbooks and books on local activities and the flora and fauna of Sanibel. There are television sets in both bedrooms.

Sandpebble is centrally located on Sanibel's network of bike paths -- a short ride to the shops along Periwinke Way, a longer peddle to the wildlife at Ding Darling National Wildlife Center, or the new Sanibel Recreation Center, with its Olympic swimming pool, gym and weight rooms, lighted tennis courts, and childrens' water play area. Whether it's the beaches, parks and wildlife, shopping, or great dining alternatives, you'll find everything Sanibel has to offer close at hand.

                        First time locating a property on line and it was the BEST experience I have ever had. From the first contact w/Tom to the day of arrival-everything was smooth as silk. This was the best week in Florida we have ever had. (Did I mention that we lived in Ft. Walton Beach for 5 years??). The property has all the personal touches that a guest would need. Beach chairs, beach towels, cooler for the beach, great beds, wonderfully appointed kitchen and a notebook of all the local tips. Books, games, WIFI, and a beach to be marveled at. Cool off in the pool and watch all the wildlife off the back of the property. Wonderful scenery, central location, easy access to all the local sites, and a quiet condo complex was just the answer for us. We will be back......

                        Our family of 4 has been on several vacations to Sanibel, but this is the 1st time staying at Sandpebble. As other reviewers have said, the condo is beautifully furnished and has everything you'll need. The view over the golf course out the back balcony was my favorite, very quiet and serene. The only drawback is that it is is on Middle Gulf drive which is a very busy road during the day, with a steady stream of traffic all day. The small screen porch on the golf course was great for cross breezes. It was in the 80's and we never used air con, since the breeze kept the condo cool.

                        I wish I could write a bad review about this apartment, then I can be confident that it will be available whenever we want to go back! It doesn't feel like a rental - it is more like you are staying at a friend's apartment. We loved the layout - there were 3 adults and 2 teenagers and we had plenty of room. The kitchen is very well equipped. We especially loved all the art work on the walls. The boys were often on their own in the pool or shared it with one other family. Sanibel was lovely although extremely hot at this time of the year. We had to walk for about 3 minutes to get to the beach, and on the last day we were rewarded by 2 dolphins joining us as we were in the sea. I cannot recommend this apartment highly enough! Thank you - we will definitely come and stay again!

                        The owner's were kind enough to work with our schedule. When we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised by the beauty of the grounds. This is a somewhat small condo complex and it seemed not many people were there this time of year. We had the pool to ourselves most days. Upon arriving inside the condo, we found it nicely appointed and roomy. We were a bit concerned by the size quoted on the website, as there were six in our party. We had 3 teenage boys, but the sofa folded into a queen bed. The layout of the place made it work for us. The kitchen had very nice appliances (something you would have in your own home not a rental), the dishes and glassware were also very nice too. The master bath was also updated and quite lovely. There is a laundry downstairs right off the eleveator. Our overall trip was excellent. We loved Sanibel. All agreed, we would definiitely come back and stay in this condo again. The management company was also fantastic to work with as well. They were a wealth of information if we needed anything.

                        We so enjoyed our vacation in Sanibel late November! The condo was so warm, lovely and comfortable. Although this was to be mainly a relaxing break for us, we rented bicycles and cycled the island, visited three different beaches, shopped at the market on Sunday morning, dined out every evening. Weather was perfect - we did not want to leave :) Thank you Carolyn and Tom!

                        This was our 2nd trip to Sandpebble on Sanibel; great condos, plenty of room, nicely decorated - a beautiful area. A walk across the street to the beach, with a quiet, clean private pool area as well. Lots to do on Sanibel and plenty of mainland spots to explore. Highly recommended for those who love walking, biking, photography, and seeing Mother Nature up close.

                        We just arrived home from a wonderful vacation in Sanibel. The condo was much bigger than we anticipated. It afforded privacy for two couples - each having their own bath. We liked the fact the condo was in a smaller complex. The view of the canal was great - we saw a lot of wildlife. The pool was warm and clean. The condo is well equipped and beautifully decorated -we loved the owners' little touches. The beds were comfy and the condo was quiet. The beach is a short walk away and the wi-fi works well. The condo was on the 4th floor but, there is an elevator and, carts to use to bring up your luggage/groceries. If we return to Sanibel, we would definitely rent from these gracious owners again.

                        We have stayed at this property on a number of occasions with our children and it is a perfect family vacation spot. The condo is an easy walk across the street from the beach, and the pool is protected and warm and great for kids. The other Sanibel beaches and restaurants and a fabulous playground are any easy bike ride away (we've had no problem locking up our bikes in the parking lot, where there is a designated space for bikes). The interior of the condo is thoughtfully decorated and the kitchen is well stocked.

                        We have stayed at this apartment at Sandpebble twice and loved it both times! The two bedroom, two bath layout is simple and compact, but very tastefully decorated and up-graded in all the right places - a "cut above" the standard rental condo in Sanibel. The master bath was re-done this year in elegant style and the kitchen is well-stocked for the active cook. The "lanai" porch is lovely and we wound up sitting out there for breakfast and supper most days (weather permitting). Perfect for two couples or a small family, the beach is a only a short walk and all of Sanibel's charming attractions are close at hand. In addition to the fantastic beaches for swimming, walking and shell-gathering, "must-do's" include the Ding Darling wildlife reservation, the Saturday farmers' market, and riding the extensive bike paths. The owners have provided a very complete guide to the area and there's lots to do and see very nearby. We highly recommend this condo and will definitely return for another stay.

                      Year Purchased: 2001

                      About the owner: Tom and Carolyn Church are innkeepers during the summer and fall, at Coveside Bed & Breakfast on another beautiful island -- Georgetown Island, on the coast of Maine. Tom is a retired college teacher (political science at the State University of New York in Albany). Carolyn was a travel agent and pastry chef. As innkeepers and frequent travelers (during our off-season), we have a good idea what vacation guests are looking for in a rental property, and have tried to provide this in our Sanibel condo.

                      Why the Owner Chose Sandpebble:
                      Sanibel Island is unique and very special. More than 60 percent of the island is in conservation land that will never be developed. Most of the island roads pass through unspoilt island ecosystems. Development on the island is concentrated along the beaches (though with ample beach access all along the coast); no structures are more than four stories high and the condominium complexes are tasteful, most with substantial green space. Thus, much of the overdevelopment common to the Florida coast has been avoided by careful planning. We were looking for a property on Sanibel that could be upgraded to a high standard (which we have done over the past several years), that was close to the beach, but that wasn't in a busy, 'resort-style' property. Most of the units at Sandpebble are occupied by owners for the winter season, and the complex is quiet and friendly.
