Property type condo
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

This gorgeous FULLY REMODELED Gulf-front condo is the ultimate vacation getaway. Located on Sanibel's desirable east end, this light and bright top floor corner unit features spectacular ocean views and a classic Florida cottage style sure to make you feel at home. A top-floor end unit is very special. In addition to the extra light it brings in, along with the tree top views, you also have the benefit of enjoying gentle breezes from both directions on the lanai as you watch pelicans dive and dolphins play in the surf. A walk down our quaint boardwalk leads you to a fabulous beach with multiple sandbars, a shelling and birding paradise.

The serenity of the beach is mirrored in the interior of our Sanibel cottage. Bead board paneling, soft tropical colors, and wood and iron accents lend a Pottery Barn flair to every room. The master bedroom overlooks the sparkling blue Gulf. The second bedroom and bathroom function as a guest suite with a door that can close off both rooms for additional privacy. The fully-equipped kitchen has granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, and a new stove and Bosch dishwasher (2017). We also have Pottery Barn dishes, a Keurig K145 coffee maker, a drip coffee maker, a juicer for those delicious Florida oranges, and quality utensils and pots and pans. We are constantly updating to keep things fresh for our guests.

Beach chairs, large Tommy Bahama beach umbrellas, pool inflatables, sand toys, and other extras enable you to make the most of your visit. Our goal is to create a space where people love to make memories. Once you stay at Gulf Beach #207, we think you'll want to return year after year to enjoy everything our 'home away from home' has to offer.

Feel free to visit our website listed further down on this page for additional photos of our Sanibel cottage. And certainly contact us if you have any further questions. Thank you!

About Owner/Manager

As a child, I started visiting Sanibel in 1966. It became a family tradition to vacation here every year since. After getting married, my wife and three kids would take our annual holiday vacation on Sanibel. Eventually, in 2012, one of our wishes came true. We were able to purchase the exact condo we wanted. As a college professor and elementary school teacher, we are always struck by what we learn about ourselves and the island during our visits. And most importantly, we are grateful for all of the family members made on the beaches, from shelling to hiking to building sand castles.

We prefer the tranquil east end with great shelling, walking on the beach to the lighthouse and fishing pier, bike riding on miles of scenic trails and fantastic fishing. We can never get enough of Sanibel! We think you will love it too!

Owner/Manager purchased this condo in 2012

Why Owner/Manager chose Sanibel Island

Location! Location! Location!

We love the quiet east end. With both gulf and bay beaches to enjoy and the lighthouse nearby, there's lots to explore within walking distance. Enjoy a short hike to Pinnochio's where you can taste award-winning ice cream and visit the Lighthouse Cafe next door for its world-famous breakfast. Our condo is also right on the bike trail to easily explore other parts of the island.

We were drawn to the small size of the complex with its quiet pool and secluded beach. We also fell in love with the view and the light-filled, top floor corner unit. This unit, with its beautiful updates and perfect location, had everything we had hoped for and more.

What makes this condo unique

In addition to what can easily be seen in the photos, we also appreciated how the guest bedroom can be closed off from the living area so guests can have their own private suite with bathroom. This is especially nice when there are two couples or extending family vacationing together.

Secluded, peaceful, quiet end corner unit.

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful get away on the east end of Sanibel Island. The condo had a Pottery Barn feel. Equipped with everything you could possibly need for a beach trip. Jeff, the owner went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable in his place. The management company was friendly, efficient and accomadating throughout our stay. The condo has a gorgeous view from the screened lanai. Perfect for morning coffee and evening sunsets.

Like coming home

  • 5 of 5

We love Gulf Beach, and this is our third time there. But this is our favorite unit we've stayed in, so much that we returned to this time. The owner is exceptionally nice and helpful too! We love the location, close to the lighthouse, Lighthouse Cafe and Pinocchio's. We will be back!

Annual summer beach trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in this lovely condo. Beautiful views from the balcony where we would have morning coffee and evening cocktails. We were there with our daughter and her family celebrating her 40th birthday. I contacted the owner for a recomendation for a restaurant and he spoke to his friends that live there and recommended The Mad Hatter. It was a small restaurant with beautiful views of the water. The food was outstanding! A little pricey, but worth every penny. The waiter even showed our granddaughters how to fold the linen napkins! They were thrilled.

The girls had a great time finding shells and the men managed to get a couple of days of golf in. We would come back again!

Sanibel condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo was really lovely.We loved the fact that it was so quiet which meant that we could use the balcony all the time.As the condo is at the end it gives you much more privacy and quiet.The view from the balcony was beautiful , thank you.

The condo was well equipped, clean and spacious, just what we wanted.

We will ,if it is available , use this particular condo again and would recommend to other people.

Cozy Cottage Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully decorated - simple and had a beach cottage feel. Loved the view of the Gulf and because it was a top floor end unit, we had side windows overlooking palms - felt like we were in a tree house! We had everything we needed - there were even beach towels and chairs for us to use. When we visit Sanibel, we will definitely stay here again!

This beachfront property has a beautiful screened in lanai that overlooks the Gulf of Mexico. The view is fantastic. Walk down to the beach on the boardwalk and enjoy a day of building sand castles, shelling, swimming, reading, and walking the miles of sandy coastline. There is a storage closet filled with beach chairs, umbrellas, beach and pool toys, and other items to enhance your visit. Take a trip down the island at sunset to enjoy the gorgeous John "Ding" Darling Wildlife Sanctuary to see alligators, Roseate spoonbills and countless other species.

Many guests take advantage of the quaint paved bike paths traversing the island. Bike rentals can be delivered right to our unit. We have a covered bike rack for your convenience as well. Our unit is also close to the Sanibel Sea School, where you can drop off your kids for a day or a few hours while they learn about the amazing coastal ecosystems.

We take great pride in keeping our unit fresh and updated for your enjoyment. So many guests have written us notes and emails commenting on the amenities, location, and the beautiful "Pottery Barn" coastal cottage decor. Our goal is to have each guest create wonderful memories with friends and loved ones, at this place we call our Sanibel paradise.
