About the Property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms +, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4 )

Take advantage of being on 'The Top' in Sanibel's Best. The beach and water can be seen from the balcony, the living room, and the kitchen. In 2009, Our home away from home, Sanibel #1804 was placed on the rental market and owner operated since day one. Due to the well designed lay-out of this 1,236 sq.ft. condo all personalities can be fulfilled at the same time. Togetherness and/or privacy, all at the same time. How?. On one end of the condo is the living area which offers an amazing gulf view while the 2 bedrooms each with their own bath. The Living area has comfortable sofas along with 2 chaise lounge chair to make watching a 42' flat screen TV just a liittle better. Watch tv for a while then tune in to the ocean to see what's jumping in the morning waters. Also, in the living area is a kitchen that is well supplied with anything one could possibly need for a vacation. Coffe pot, toaster, knives, pans, pots, plastice plates, glass plates, plastic cups, glass cups, wine glasses. Of course, you'll find a mixer.
At this point, I have many repeat customers. In fact 75% of my guests are repeats therefore the cabinets are stocked with everyday needs from the previous guests, such as salt, pepper, coffee, water bottles, etc. My guests seem to take an interest in making sure the the next guest doesn't arrive short handed.
Being 'on top' offers the advantage of more privacy, quietness and better view.( NO NOISY FOOTSTEPS OVERHEAD TO POSSIBILLY KEEP YOU AWAKE AT NIGHT.)

This condo has a contemporary decor with up to date beach colors/accessories.
The living room has 2 black chaise loungers, love seat, full size sofa sleeper, and a 42 inch television with DVD player. Custom made white linen drapes hang over the 30 X 8 foot wall to wall glass windows which gives one the option to close out the rest of the world if desired.

The two identical bedrooms are situated completely opposite of the main area however water views are obtainable of The Lagoon. To ensure a good nights’ sleep, each bed is equipped with new, quality mattresses dressed with 600 count sheets and fine bed spreads. TV's and DVD's in each bedroom. In addition to wooden slat blinds the bedroom windows are draped with custom-made designer curtains. The master bedroom has a king size bed while the guest room has a queen size bed. Both bedrooms have their own bathroom. Each bathroom includes private toilet area, granite counter top, dual sinks, and tub/shower. All topped off with apt supply of luxury, color coordinated towels.

The granite countertop kitchen is completely furnished with toaster, blender, coffee pot, silverware, full set of knives, linens, dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator with ice-maker and a four burner electric stove. Plastic and glass place settings for 8 servings are tucked away in the cabinets along with plenty of pots/pans for vacation cooking.

Nine year old Sanibel is located approximately 2.5 miles from I-59 on West Beach Blvd.. A short walk across West Beach Blvd. and you’re at public accessibility to the beach which includes a portable potty and shower. Because Sanibel is located in a newly established area it’s easy to find a spot on the beach. No crowded beaches... yet just minutes away from family and fast food restaurants, grocery stores and entertainment. Super Wal-Mart, Wal-greens, and liquor stores are all less than 15 minutes away.

If the sandy beach is not for you Sanibel has you covered. A heated swimming pool and work out area with sauna is located on the 2nd floor. Of course, The Lagoon in the back offers excellent fishing. Ladies, don't want to fish either....No problem. The Tanger Outlet mall which is loaded with many name brand stores is only 17 minutes away. If the outlet mall is not your style, The Wharf is only 16 minutes away. The upscale Wharf has something for every member of the family. Guy Harvey shops for the guys, specialty shops for the ladies and ice-cream shops/ferris wheel for the young at heart.

I encourage repeat and responsible renters and give special consideration to my repeat customers. Our housekeeper, Pam Anderson, is a local individual and when we say spotless...we mean spotless! You can always be assured to have a thoroughly sanatized and clean unit. I use this condo as a second home and cleanliness is top priority. Her services are $95 one time charge.


My goal is to create a relaxing and comfortable get away for you and your family while still feeling at home.
Try being at “THE TOP”…..you deserve it!!!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I'm a retired shipbuilder from South Louisiana and live adjacent to the Honey Island swamp in Slidell Louisiana. My back yard is occupied by 3 pet dogs and 29 Mallard ducks along with 100 + Black Belly Whistling Tree Ducks. I visit 1804 on a regular basis where many of my friends from over the years have relocated to that area. Fresh seafood and friendly people are my favorites... and there is plenty of both there....plus plenty sun and sand. The photo above is of my baby girl and me on her 50th Birthday!!!!!

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
I was seeking a beach home with a laid back atmosphere. The 18th floor penthouse was new and offered a safe and secure package with an element of quietness. The security service and property maintenance are top notch.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The condo was constructed post hurricane Ivan and built with the highest standards for strength and safety. It is professionally maintained by our awesome housekeeper, Pam Anderson. Cleanleness is my top priority. I have high quality furnishings, regular updates, convenient location, great view, and personal attention.
