About Elaine and Dave

We fell in love with Sanibel on our first trip to the island in 1983. We came back five weeks later and bought our first condo. We purchased Sand Pointe #226 in 1993 and finally moved here in 1999. We love the seashell strewn white sand beaches, bike paths, and fine restaurants of Sanibel Island. We visit those dining establishments regularly for you (tough work, but someone has to do it), and we compile this information, as well as our favorite places-to-go and things-to-do, into a five page 'Bon Voyage' letter that we send you prior to your arrival.

Elaine and Dave purchased this condo in 1993

Why Elaine and Dave chose Sanibel

We love Sand Pointe #226 for it's great view overlooking the picturesque lagoon and the Gulf of Mexico. The little island in the lagoon attracts many wading birds. The unit has a screened lanai that stretches the entire width of the condo allowing you to see the Gulf from the living room, dining room, and kitchen as well as from large sliding glass doors in the master bedroom. We love the under-building parking, elevator, and beautiful landscaping of the complex. Having a restaurant adjacent to the property is also nice.

What makes this condo unique

Did I mention the great view? The recent renovation included new bathrooms, carpet, tile, decor, stainless steel appliances, and granite counter tops. The kitchen is VERY well stocked (one of our renters said, 'If you want a garlic press in Elaine's kitchen, you will find a garlic press.' Our unit includes full sized washer/dryer, 3 TVs, DVDs, VCR, CD and radio stereo, WiFi, High Speed Comcast service, an Windows 7 computer and printer, a large library, board games, and beach towels. We leave the key to our storage compartment, which is next to the beach, which contains beach chairs and toys.

Beach location is perfect for sunrise & sunset.

  • 5 of 5

The Condo is very clean and well-maintained. The owners are on the island, so customer service is great. The layout is roomy and with full amenities. Location is very close to a grocery store, attractions and great restaurants. We have stayed at this Condo for a number of years and would highly recommend it.

The owners have gone the extra mile as far as furnishings and decor to make this condo one of the best we have ever rented. Ocean view and access to quiet beach front is perfect! Pool was never crowded and the location could not be better.

Simply put - awesome!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for a week after Thanksgiving and couldn't have been more pleased. The condo itself was most accommodating with everything from utensils to beach chairs. We happened to hit a stretch of absolutely gorgeous weather which also happened to fit perfectly for my wife’s ambition to go shelling. For a last minute get away this was certainly a find for us that was meant to be. It may have to be an annual for us in the future. Kudos to the owners for a great job in this rental offering!

Wonderful Condo and Great for Families!

  • 5 of 5

We just finished up our week long stay in this beautiful condo! The condo was immaculate and there was not a single thing that we needed (Kitchen was great). Our whole family (Kids ages 5-15) had a wonderful time. The pool was very nice and just a short walk from the condo. The beach was also very beautiful and we enjoyed shelling everyday! We will absolutely without a doubt rent this condo again! Thanks for the great vacation!

An exceptionally nice condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week in this exceptionally nice condo. It was very clean, beautifully decorated, comfortable, quiet, and well maintained. Everything about it was just excellent. The view of the ocean about the well maintained landscape and lagoon was outstanding. We spend many hours out on the large screened-in lanai enjoying a glass of wine, reading or taking a nap. The beds were firm but comfortable to our liking. The kitchen was beautiful. I believe that it had everything one would need for cooking any meal (we ate most our meals at the local restaurants on the island....we were on vacation). The under-building parking and elevator located just a few steps from the condo was a big plus and really handy. Did I mention "quiet" was so nice to relax on the lanai or inside the condo and not be disturbed. The owners were wonderful. They mailed us beforehand with information and tips on restaurants, shopping and interesting things to do. Elaine called while we were there to see how things were going or if there was anything we needed. It was a pleasure working them. We would recommend this condo to anyone who would enjoy a pleasant, relaxing and beautiful place to stay on Sanibel Island. Thank you Elaine and Dave for sharing your condo with us. See ya next year.
