About Ellen Ruland

Celebrating the New Year on the beach.

Ellen Ruland purchased this condo in 1995

Why Ellen Ruland chose Sanibel

We have enjoyed memorable family gatherings at Pointe Santo, beginning with our teen and preteen kids...and now, with three grandchildren.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sanibel is heaven on earth! These accommodations were more than we hoped for...there was plenty of room for three adults and one child. Everything we needed was included...washer/dryer, full kitchen, beach toys, games, flat panel TV and a beautiful lenai. Short walk to the pool and beach...close to grills, lots to do on the island from shopping, sightseeing, restaurants, beaching and shelling. We loved our vacation and are planning another trip next year to the same condo! I give this condo five stars out of five!

Beautiful Property/Condo and Pointe Santos

  • 4 of 5

. The D-1 condo is very up to date, comfortable, and well furnished. It reflects the owner's dedication to providing her renters' a care-free vacation.

Pointe Santos is a beautifully located and immaculately maintained property. It is on the beach, very quiet, with easy access to all that Sanibel Island and Captiva have to offer.

Great Unit/Location.

  • 5 of 5

This place was great and had everything we needed. It's a good location on the island and the complex (Point Santo) is lovely.

The owner is incredibly nice and responsive.

Comfortable space with updated and fully equipped kitchen, walk out patio enclosure with beach items

  • 5 of 5

The unit was pleasantly decorated and I particularly like the first floor entry access, providing easy access to pool and the beach. The unit kitchen makes you feel at home with all of the appliances and kitchen accessories, if you like to cook during your stay. The beds were comfortable and the living space cozy for watching tv. The unit included some beach chairs and toys, which was very nice. Our family enjoys the centralized island access of the Pointe Santo Condos.

Beautiful condo, gorgeous location, best shelling.

  • 5 of 5

We come to Sanibel every year and this is now our very favorite place to stay. The condo is lovely, just as beautiful as the photos and so perfectly located on the very best shelling beach. Amenities and grounds were beautiful. Being on the first floor made it so easy to come and go from the car and just walk out the patio and stroll on the beach. What made it even better was the wonderful owner Ellen. It was just our luck to arrive a few days before hurricane Irma hit and Ellen was so very helpful and supportive talking us through what to do and even helping us make plans if we needed to evacuate. Ellen was very graciously refunding the nights we weren't able to stay due to the storm and made us feel very safe and kept us informed always. You can't beat this spot, we love it and will be coming back every year.

Nice but needs updates.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location of the condo, you can barely see the beach from the porch.

It was scheduled maintenance time on the outside of the condos, so it was very noisy, since it was scheduled, I wish we would have known.

The washing machine is EXTREMELY loud, the dishwasher is loud too. We would only throw in a load of laundry when we were going to be away for a little while.

For the most part, the condo was good, it's very roomy, the kitchen has most every thing you'd need, it's just a little tired.

Everything was absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was pure bliss. It has plenty of room for a small family and not too big if you stay alone, as well. Pointe Santo is a perfectly located on the island. Everything is only a mere minutes away. The grounds are quaint and quiet. The property staff and management were amazing and friendly. I felt perfectly safe there, too. The owner, Ellen, even called to check in making sure I was happy! I highly recommend this property. You won't be disappointed. However, you will be sad that you have to leave and go home. I will return and soon.

Sanibel is a ten mile long, one mile wide barrier Island on the Gulf of Mexico, just off the coast of Fort Myers in Southwest Florida. Arthur Frommer has named it his personal favorite place to vacation.

Step back in time to the way Florida was meant to be. There are no high rise buildings allowed. No buildings can be taller than the trees and are set back to keep the beach natural and tree lined. Much of the Island was set aside for wildlife and nature preservation. Yet, along Periwinkle Way, Sanibel's Main Street, there are countless restaurants, shops, bike rentals, two large supermarkets, and a CVS pharmacy. There are twenty four miles of bike paths covering the Island and you can walk for uninterrupted miles along the shell strewn, white sugar sand beach.
