Our condo is a large 1400 square foot unit located on the 10th floor with breathtaking views.

From the moment you unlock the door and walk in, you will fall in love with the fabulous view! Pelicans, Ospreys and Eagles that fly by at eye level will thrill you, as it always does us, as we walk in Setting on the lanai watching the dolphins play and the occasional Manatee that swims by is wonderful. .

We offer double beds in the guest suite complete with its own bath and it closes off from the rest of the unit for ultimate privacy for your family or guests.

The master suite offers a private master bath, luxurious water views , pelicans and ospreys flying by the window and a door wall leading to the lanai for moonlight moments and falling asleep to the sound of the waves.

About Jan Niebauer

We are Real Estate Brokers in Michigan and have owned our own firm for over 35 years.

We enjoy travel, nature, the water and golf.

Sanibel Harbour was a perfect fit for us! We can take an early morning flight from Michigan and be on one of our favorite golf courses that afternoon.

Jan Niebauer purchased this condo in 2005

Why Jan Niebauer chose Fort Myers

We owned a beachfront condo in Maui Hawaii for almost 20 years. We found the distance and the time it took to get there prohibited us from going as frequently as we wanted. We were very spoiled and very particular when we began our search in South West Florida. We knew we wanted to be on the Gulf side. We knew we wanted flowers, privacy, and no asphalt and neon signs... We knew we were asking for more than we had ever seen in Florida. When we drove in to Sanibel Harbour and were welcomed by the Banyan trees and beautiful Hibiscus blooming on this very private peninsula we felt like we had found our second paradise! We had come to visit friends and as we walked into their unit we were overcome with the view. Nothing was available then, but two weeks later we got a phone call that 1014 had just gone on the market. Sight unseen, we purchased it. We still walk in and say Wow! What a view!

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy the private beach, Coffee on the lanai, watching the dolphins play, the manatee slowly swimming by, the osprey and pelicans so close we feel we can reach out and touch them, and my favorite, the beautiful white pelicans that are only there for a short while! We love going to the shrimp boats and buying fresh shrimp.

We enjoy the pool and hot tub but our favorite place to be is laying on the beach with palm trees swaying next to us and listening to the waves.

We frequently walki down the beach to the beach bar for hamburgers in the afternoon but we always like to be back home for the most fabulous sunsets imaginable from our own lanai.

Sanibel Island with all of it's wonderful restaurants beaches, entertainment, nature and golf courses make this a must for everyone!

It is great fun to pick up a Randy Wayne White novel (written by a local author about this entire area) for some local fiction/mystery color, pick a spot on the beach to start reading, and then head over the the Island or out towards Ft. Myers Beach, that features a live band most days, (Just before the bridge) to either of the 'Doc Fords' to live the island and places you have been reading about!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank You for sharing your home away from home with us. It was wonderful. The view is magnificent, the accommodations are spotless, the amenities were perfect. Cannot wait to see when we can return. Being lovers of sun and water, the pool in such close proximity to the beach and water was ideal. Not many places can brag of this combination. Also, Doc Fords was tasty in FMB, we went to Mucky Duck for din and Bubble Room for desert. (should have walked home for the size of the cake!). Again, Thanks and if you need a testimonial - you've got it.

This was a beautifully decorated Condo with beautiful views of the harbor Bay and incredible sunsets. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this condo to anyone. We could get to Sanibel or Ft Myers Beach very quickly as well!

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We thought it was very well decorated. Beautiful artwork. Really put us in the vacation spirit. At first we were concerned about the cloth dining chairs with 2 kids, nearly 6 and 4. But it worked out perfectly to move the bar stools over to the dining table. Enjoyed the screened lanai on occassion but the no-see-ums were pretty bad and we still have several bites. The views are worth it. Kids also enjoyed seeing the native animals like the lizards. The legos that happened to be there were also a big hit with them! As was the pool outside and seashells on the beach outside the building. Hot tub was a little too hot in June so we only tried it once but I am sure it is fabulous when a little cooler. For the days that it was too rainy or the kids were too whiny, the tv has a great selection of options. Well equipped kitchen. In-unit laundry was a plus. Nice quality furnishings. Went to the Marriott spa nearby for a massage and was not pleased with price paid for service received so that is not recommended. Could've gotten just as good for half at home. Lesson learned. The unit and the area otherwise were fabulous! Thanks for letting us borrow your little piece of paradise!

I realize that's not a word, but a spot so beautiful and tranquil deserves its own word. The unit was just as advertised, so my husband and I were able to relax and unwind after a busy several weeks. Mornings spent on the balcony drinking coffee and watching for manatees will be remembered for a very long time.

Loved everything about this unit!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was the last week of April. We found this to be one of the easiest rentals by far. Jan was very accommodating for our short stay and was quick to respond to my questions. Check in was quick and simple. The condo was amazing. It was spotless and had everything we needed. The pool and location were great also. It was an awesome time of the year and we look forward to booking again next April for alittle longer stay.
