About Marsha Schmitz

Have been a owner on Sanibel Island at Sandalfoot condos, since 1999. This is a very special place for me. I love collecting sea shells and the beautiful beaches. They are never crowded. I have been coming here since a child.

Marsha Schmitz purchased this condo in 2003

Why Marsha Schmitz chose Florida South West

One of the nicest condo's on the beach. Recently remodeled with high end furniture, open kitchen floor plan, granite counters, remodeled bathroom all tiled with decorator vanities, flat screen TV/DVD/HD in the living room and both of the bedrooms, new washer and dryer.

What makes this condo unique

Beautifully landscaped ground, this complex is on the beach, not across the street. All condos individually decorated by owners and decorators. This is one of the nicest condos on the beach. Every condo has a view of the beach.

Labor Day weekend 2009

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic condo! Very easy to book, owner responds back quickly to inquieries, and the check in staff was very friendly.

The condo was very clean, comfortable and in a great location. The kids enjoyed being able to walk out the back porch and hop in the pool...and we all enjoyed being so close to the private beach (dolphins were swimming all around us)!

We will be back! Thanks for a great stay!

Great place is Sanibel!

  • 5 of 5

We were having a difficult time finding a place that would rent for less than a week. The owner was very accommodating. We were really surprised by how nice the condo is. We've stayed on the island a couple of times before. This was the nicest place we've stayed in by far. Late arrival and check-in was very easy. The condo has everything you will need. It was so nice to have beach chairs and an umbrella. It is also a great location. The office staff was very nice and welcoming. I'm sure we will be visiting this condo in the future!

Weekend in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I thought it might be nice.....

But it was so much more. I planned a weekend getaway with my daughters and 4 year old granddaughter, we were in 5 in total. We had a king sized bed and two twins, didn't need the pull out sofa.The condo was spacious with up to date furnishings and appliances. I really appreciated the extras like different sized coolers, (6) beach chairs, tennis racquets and balls, floats for the pool/ beach and anything you might need to cook with should you so choose.We travelled with food and drinks so we could spend all our time shelling and being on the beach for a totally relaxing weekend. It was a great girls get a way, no make up, no dressing up just great company. One morning one of my daughters , my granddaughter and I went shelling at 7:30 in the morning while still in our PJs!

Thank you so much Marsha. We enjoyed ourselves immensely and hope to go back soon. I must add that the staff in the office were very friendly and courteous.

Awesome condo!

  • 5 of 5

The owner was easy to work with and very responsive with our request and questions. The check in process could not have been easier. This condo had everything we wanted and was at the quiet end of the island. The complex was well maintained and close to the beach. Even the back building was an easy walk to the beach and still had a nice view of the pool. The beach was not crowded and the shelling was fantastic! The furnishings and condo had updates. We would stay here again without hesitation!!!!!

The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This condo was the perfect place for a "women's week away". Marsha was the perfect owner to deal with and very gracious. Our unit was clean, comfortable and came equiped with everything we needed. The grounds are immaculately landscaped and maintained and everyone is friendly and helpful.

As we walked down the beach toward the lighthouse, followed by stingrays along the shore, we realized that our beach was perfect.

We couldn't have asked for anything more. Thanks Marsha! Sorry it took us so long to post this review.

We want to come back!

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our family vacation in June, 2011. It is a fabulous condo. It had everything we needed. The owner thought of everything! The beds are super comfortable, the rooms are beautifully furnished. The whole condo was very well decorated. She supplied beach chairs, a cooler, shelling equipment, everything! The grounds of the complex are immaculate. The pool was so nice - only complaint would be that the water is VERY warm from the sun. The beach is right there and there is a nice shower/rinsing station where you can shower off the sand and wash and identify your shells.

We were very happy and will definitely return next year!
