Sandalfoot condo description

Spend your day relaxing by the pool, or on the beach. You can't help doing the 'Sanibel Stoop' to find the most beautiful shells in the world. Sanibel also offers the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge just minutes away. The refuge is part of the largest undeveloped mangrove ecosystem in the United States. It is world famous for its spectacular migratory bird populations. You can rent a canoe or kayak and paddle your way through this amazing wildlife refuge where you will see hundreds of migratory birds and you may even spot a manatee!

World class restaurants and shopping are just down the road. If outlets are more your thing, just hop across the causeway back to Fort Myers for the Tanger Outlet Mall, 10 minutes from your door.
If you're a baseball fan, then you'll be happy to know that Fort Myers is the Spring Training grounds for the Minnesota Twins.

So whether you want to hike, shop, eat, or just hang out at the pool or beach, this is the place!

Sanibel Island is a barrier island just off the southwest coast of Florida near Fort Myers. Sanibel Island is about 12 miles long and 4 miles wide, and is known around the world for it's fabulous shelling beaches. Due to Sanibel Island's unique geographical orientation, lying East to West instead of North to South, it acts as a scoop and gathers seashells along it's beaches. The average temperature in Sanibel is about 75 degrees. There are over 26 miles of bike trails and over 15 miles of beautiful, soft, sandy beaches.

Keywords: No Stairs to climb!! Walk a few steps from your car to the front door. Walk right out the Lanai to the heated pool, shuffleboard, tennis, and the beach! Easy for families, perfect for couples.

Our ground level condo offers a newly remodeled kitchen, dining area, family room with pull-out sofa, king size bed in the master, two twins in the second bedroom, and 2 full baths. The screened lanai is accessible from the living room and master bedroom. This end unit is quiet with lots of natural light. Everything you need for the perfect beach vacation.

The friendly onsite management is available 7 days per week to help you with all of the details. There are even onsite bicycle rentals for a nice ride on the bike trail. Walk or bike to two of the best breakfasts on Sanibel--The Sea Star Cafe (0.4 miles) or The Lighthouse Cafe (0.7 miles)! Or after a long hot day in the sun, grab a refreshing frozen treat at Pinocchio's ice cream parlor (0.7 miles).

            A Place of Enchantment!

            • Review Submitted 08/27/13
            I've found that the success of a vacation can largely swing depending on the venue in which I have stayed. The beach, weather and dining will remain the same, but the true difference lies with the reservation. An otherwise beautiful night out can be ruined by coming home to loud neighbors or a broken air conditioner just as a long day at the beach can be turned into absolute relaxation and serenity with a hot, pressurized shower, pillow topped mattress and an undisturbed night to gaze under the stars. I am delighted to say that our stay at Sandalfoot 3D1 was entirely the latter. We arrived after the scheduled check-in, no problem at all, and promptly unpacked and relaxed. The condo is well lit, open, splendidly furnished and accompanied with a variety of books, films, games and quite possible the most impressive lineup of kitchen utensils and appliances I have ever seen. Being on the ground level, we had supreme access to the beach without having to carry chairs and coolers through flights of stairs. The condominium amenities included several propane grills, a large and clean pool, accompanied with many chairs and umbrellas, a well maintained tennis court, and a sturdy boardwalk with a sink and hose for rinsing off shells and sandy feet. The location on Gulf Drive is close to all the shops and eateries, without being on a busy stretch of road. Pinocchio's famous ice cream is just a minute down the road and lighthouse is an easy walk along the shore. The beach is very clean and uncrowded. The shelling is second to none and the breeze was constant, creating a tranquil setting against the hot sun. We were extremely happy and comfortable during our stay. Sandalfoot is classy and in excellent repair and our condo at 3D1 was the perfect place to call home. Sanibel Island is truly a paradise, with much variety and a mellow, mature atmosphere. We had an amazing time and expect to be back soon!

            This was my first time staying at Sandalfoot Condominium on Sanibel Island and I absolutely loved it! Sanibel Island is a beautiful getaway and the Sandalfoot condo was a perfect place to stay at. The unit was nicely furnished and decorated and provided a great layout with comfortable seating and beds. The unit has a very open kitchen and dining area which made it ideal for cooking meals each day. The location of this unit is extremely convenient and offered many benefits during my stay. Not only is it located on the ground floor, meaning no stairs to walk up and down, but it is also an end unit on the quiet end of the property which made my stay even more peaceful and relaxing. Additionally, the unit location offers quick and easy access to the shuffleboard court, tennis court, grills for grilling out, and the condo’s heated pool. The beach is a short scenic walk from the unit and is an extremely serene and calming environment. I thoroughly enjoyed relaxing in the sun and spending time on the beach each day during my stay. The ocean is refreshing and the many fascinating shells that you can find on the beach are great for collecting and bringing home with you as a souvenir. During my stay I was able to explore the various nearby shops and excellent restaurants to dine at on the Island. In addition, the Sanibel community is incredibly welcoming and positively contributed to my overall stay. I had such an incredible experience vacationing in Sanibel Island and this condo was the perfect place to stay at to enjoy all that the Island has to offer!

            Owner response: Thank you so much for your positive review. So happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit. I must agree that this is the perfect place to stay!!

            We had a wonderful time at Sandalfoot. We had three small children and two adults in this 2br condo. We were very comfortable and found it clean and nicely furnished. The location was perfect, close to the pool and the beach. The shelling was, of course, awesome. We swam and shelled multiple times a day. We also found the other residents/visitors to be friendly and helpful in recommending some great places to dine and shop. Check in and check out was a breeze, staff were helpful and prompt. I would recommend this condo to friends and family. We hope to get back there again. A very positive experience and wonderful vacation spot. The owners of the condo were very helpful with directions, addresses, grocery locations, etc.

            We discovered Sandalfoot four years ago after having stayed at another (larger, very upscale) resort closeby. We loved the other place, but once we found Sandalfoot, we never looked back. The scale, layout, amenities (including tennis and shuffleboard) and ambience are perfect, especially for families with young children or older parents who prefer a shorter walk to the pool or beach. We have gone every year with three generations(ages 1-75), and Sandalfoot meets everyone's needs. The property is immaculate and well kept, and the staff are always helpful and responsive(four years later, it's like a family reunion when we arrive at the front office -- the candy dish is filled and waiting for our youngest child!)There is very much a family feel, partly because there are so many returning families(we have friends from repeat visits), and also because of the little extras, like the weekly breakfast buffet by the pool, April Fools Day bbq, Easter celebration, etc.The place is just the right size, not so small as to feel dinky, and not so large as to feel overwhelming or anonymous. The access to the pool and beach is one of the best aspects of Sandalfoot. It is contained and safe enough even for young children to walk to and from by themselves, which makes for a more relaxing vacation. This is also an advantage of a ground floor unit -- children can go right out to play. And it makes grilling, which we did nightly for dinner, especially easy. We have stayed in Unit 3D1 multiple times and always found it perfect. The open layout makes it feel breezy and spacious. It is nicely decorated, and recently updated with new living and dining furniture. The modern, well-equipped kitchen had everything we needed to cook nightly for our family of 5, plus grandparents and an aunt staying in a different unit. (and I'm somewhat picky about kitchens.) There are beach chairs and an umbrella, and a newly purchased beach cart. We have never been disappointed or unpleasantly surprised by anything at Sandalfoot. It is consistently well managed and maintained. And the sunsets are stunning.

            I thoroughly enjoyed my week at Sandalfoot! This first-floor unit made it convenient to walk out to the beach and the pool. The condo is clean and comfortable. The updated-kitchen is nice for cooking and eating in. The grounds are well-maintained with beautiful flowering plants. The complex is just the right size; it was never crowded in the common areas. Being on the eastern side of Sanibel Island made it convenient to drive to the mainland and plenty of attractions close by.

            This is our first stay on Sanibel itself, although we have visited the island a number of times in the past and enjoyed its tranquility, long expanses of uncrowded beach and warm gulf water, not to mention the world's best shell hunting! This Sandlefoot condo is situated on the gulf side of the island with the best views and best beaches in our opinion. We were overjoyed to find this place. The condo itself is on the ground floor. We parked the car 10 feet from the front door which made loading and unloading a snap. The master bedroom has a king bed, which is not very common, and its own private, full bath with upscale tile and fixtures. The second bedroom has 2 twin beds and its own full bath. There were 5 in our group and we used the full size sleeper sofa which was also surprisingly comfortable. The condo was exceptionally clean and well-maintained. Walking out the screened Lanai, it is 20 feet to the large clean pool, then another 100 feet on a private walk to the ocean. The condo was fully equipped with flat screen TVs in the bedrooms and living room, DVD and VCR players, full kitchen nicely stocked with all cooking and dining utensils and appliances. There is even a nice selection of DVDs, board games and books (although we spent most of our time in the pool or at the beach). Beach chairs, umbrella, shelling supplies, beach towels, etc. are all supplied. The condo office was very friendly and had a nice supply of bicycles for rent ($15/day) for use on the miles of secluded, paved bike trails on the island. All in all, we had a perfect time and will definitely rent this condo again.

            A perfect paradise awaits our family each and every time we stay at Sandalfoot Condominiums, and this time was no exception. However, we truly found our perfect piece of paradise during our stay this year (May 2012) in Sandalfoot Condo (3D1)! This two bedroom unit was very spacious for our family of four, and sparkling clean! Furthermore, we LOVED having the pool, shuffleboards, tennis courts, beautiful flowers and landscaping and bike racks right out the door of the lanai. And, being on the 1st floor is ALWAYS a plus for a family with children. I have vacationed at Sandalfoot since I was a child, and stayed in many units growing up with my parents and now with my own family. But truly, 3D1 is a unit that I will ALWAYS ask for each year from now on. Sanibel is Heaven on Earth in every since of the word, and perfect accomodations found at Sandalfoot (particularly this unit) is reason #1!!
