(Only for new VRBO guests) This card is accepted at all businesses accepting Visa credit and debit cards and has no restrictions or expiration date. Most guests use it for groceries, restaurants and activities. Enjoy all the comforts of home while on vacation in our 1,200 sq ft, 2 Bed/2 Bath, TOP FLOOR, Direct Gulf Front condo. When you arrive, a luggage cart and grocery cart are provided and the elevator is a few steps from your doorway. 304 has a spacious modern kitchen with granite countertops, double stainless sink, spray handle faucet, automatic jar opener, side by side refrigerator and glass top electric stove and the dining area is fully equipped. The living room has an extra large, soft, comfy, leather swivel rocker-recliner, where you can alternate with a swivel from watching the pelicans dive for fish and dolphins frolicing, or watching a huge 52 inch Sony HDTV with a blu-ray dvd, or just curling up and reading a book which soon turns into a nap while listening to the rhythm of the waves. The sofas are comfortable and covered in a beautiful beach fabric. When it is time for the beach, grab a super-large plush beach towel, take the elevator to the ground floor, get a beach chair and umbrella from the rack and walk 30 feet down the boardwalk to the soft white sand covered with beautiful sea shells as far as the eye can see!. After a day of 'fun in the sun' at the beach, you'll look forward to a peaceful night's sleep, as the master suite has a king-sized bed with 'Consumers Reports' #1 rated 'Simmon's Beautyrest World Class Series' mattress. The master suite has large windows facing the Gulf allowing you to lay in bed while watching the waves rolling to shore and vacationers acquiring the 'Sanibel Stoop' while collecting sea shells. The master bedroom offers a sliding glass door to the screened porch. There is also an extra-large walk-in closet. Both master and guest suites have modern, clean, bright adjoining bathrooms complete with beautiful vanities with double sinks and granite countertops and raised comfort-height toilets. Enjoy convenience, comfort, style and views. Also provided is a washer and dryer inside the condo. After a day at the beach, or beautiful heated pool, you can enjoy an evening game of tennis on the only lighted tennis courts on the island. Horseshoes and shuffleboard are also available. Many guests have been surprised by how quiet the pool area is, even during the peak season, probably because the complex is small with only 21 units. The pool area is a great place to swim, lounge or read a book and even has wifi available.. This is a non-smoking apartment. The 3rd and top floor location of 304 provides fantastic direct Gulf Front views while listening to the relaxing sounds of the Gulf of Mexico, lightly breaking waves, seagulls, and gentle breezes. Watch the sunrise from the master bedroom, or be an early riser and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea and watching the sunrise from your screened porch. FREE 'NETFLIX' movies and FREE 'PANDORA' Stereo, which enables you to select YOUR OWN type of music and artist, is provided.

About: Retired as Senior Vice President of Morgan Stanley and lives on one of the Finger Lakes near Rochester, New York. My seven Grandchildren enjoy spending the summer on the lake and also enjoy vacations on Sanibel Island. I enjoy scuba diving around the world and have been to some incredible diving locations including the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, Galapagos Islands, Cayman Islands, Belize and Costa Rica. At age 73, the other divers call me 'Grandpa'. Helps me to stay young.
Why Pelicans Roost: Sanibel Island is truly Paradise that is very different than other travel destination because it is so pristine, not commercialized, and shells on the beach as far as the eye can see.
