"This was the getaway my wife, daughter, and I were looking for! With this condo we got everything we expected and more. When we first arrived we picked up our keys at Sanibel Holiday, the property management company, and they were very welcoming. They told us all they details about our accommodations and gave us a packet full of useful information, tips, and things to do on the island. We were impressed by their service when we called about a clogged shower drain. It was no big deal and they came right out and fixed the clog in no time while we were out enjoying the beach.
Most of the other condos at this complex are timeshares and their property management is taken care of on-site at the shell island front office. Despite this VRBO condo using a different property management company off-site, the front office treated us just the same and helped us with dinner options, pool towels, and getting our bikes setup. They even provide helmets and have bikes with child seats which was a blast. We rented a crib and high-chair from an island company but we found out that the office at shell island has them for rent for a nominal fee.
The pool and hot tub area seemed recently updated and was awesome! The views from the balcony are amazing over looking the pool, beach, and gulf. The only downside to the amazing view are the stairs going up to the condo could be a lot for someone who can not handle stairs well. The beach out front was amazing for shelling. We always went during low tide and found many great vacant shells and many live creatures that were fun to look at including dozens of live sand dollars, many starfish, crabs, hermit crabs, horseshoe crabs, conch shells, and dolphins just beyond the last sand bar.
Our favorite restaurant was Cip's Place which has a good happy hour, the best service we encountered, and hasnice outdoor seating. One word of caution for those of you that like to be connected, the Wifi works but was slow."

"After being away from Sanibel for a long time, it was a very refreshing return, especially to this condo. The décor was professionally appointed bringing in the beach-like atmosphere that added to the overall ambiance. We will definitely return to this great vacation condo unit.
The SIBC management was extremely helpful in recommending dining and entertainment on the island. Bicycles were readily available at no charge to the resort visitors. Bike trails are easy to follow and offer a tropical self-guided tour of the island with quick stops for ice cream creations or your favorite beverage.
Of the many fine restaurants on Sanibel, we were happy to find some of our favorites still serving great fare. Recommended: Lighthouse Café for breakfast and Doc Ford's for a great dinner experience (killer shrimp!!). And don't forget Mucky Duck on Captiva - best sunsets anywhere. The Lazy Flamingo still owns a fantastic Chicken Caesar salad - strongly recommended any time of day or nite. And don't forget to say 'hello' to the birds at Jerry's.
Bring your sunscreen, flip-flops and beach attire as you practice your "Sanibel Stoop". Or, you can just relax at the pool or hot tub.
We'll be back next year...."

"My friends and I were in Sanibel for a girls getaway. This was a great condo! Beautifully decorated and so warm and inviting. It was very clean, the kitchen was well equipped, and we enjoyed the use of the beach chairs and umbrellas. Both bedrooms were very comfortable and so pretty. Bathrooms were also nice. The view from the screened patio/balcony was absolutely awesome. We enjoyed sitting out there in the evenings watching the ocean. The beach and the pool were just a short walk from the condo. We liked having the shower/foot shower at the end of the walkway, right before you get back to the condo so you can get the sand off your feet or rinse off before going to the pool. The pool was nice, too. The condo is close to dining, shopping and the lighthouse. The beach was beautiful and we had great weather the whole week! It only rained one morning during our stay. Thank you for sharing your condo with us. We would definitely recommend it and would love to come back again! Great vacation!!"
