About Jim Carey

We reside in Lake Forest Illinois and have enjoyed coming to Sanibel since the late 80's.

Jim Carey purchased this condo in 1999

Why Jim Carey chose Sanibel

Sanibel has always been a special place for us. After renting at several complexes we decided to buy. We chose Compass Point over others for the exceptional environment it offers. It is a relatively small complex (45 units), is very quiet and very well maintained. It offers 'drop dead' beautiful views of the gulf from the lanai, master bedroom or living room. It has a beautiful private beach and a private pool.

What makes this condo unique

Our unit is unique as it has a circular staircase which leads down to the cabana downstairs which has a full bath. This space can be used as a playroom or as a quiet place for those who have to do some work while they are on vacation. You can access the beach or walk out to the pool directly from the cabana.

Guestbook comments from the manager


Just wanted to say that we enjoyed your condo thoroughly. Beautiful view, great weather, great accommodations !! Perhaps we'll make it an annual trip.

Thanks again, David & Patty

This a beautiful condo with a spectacular view of the Gulf of Mexico

  • 5 of 5

Compass Point is a small complex (45 units) that is beautifully maintained and very quiet. It has a very nice beach and pool. The condo itself is very nice. The cabana with a work area and large flat screen tv is a real plus versus other units.

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

It was our fourth trip to Sanibel (me, my wife, and two young children) and we brought my parents down for their first visit. We never felt crowded with all 6 of us, there was plenty of room. We loved having the elevated unit with the Cabana walk-out, what a great feature. The unit itself was nicely furnished, well equiped, and beach front with a nice size balcony to enjoy. The complex was clean, quiet, and in a great central location on the island so it was easy to bike around. I would highly recommend staying here and the owner was very pleasant and easy to talk to when making the reservations.

The only recommendations I have are for an updated stove (it is quite dated and the front right burner did not work) and an electric skillet (for making pancakes and/or bacon) as there was not a flat skillet just the traditional kind, but these in no way had a negative effect on our vacation, these are just recommendations.

Thanks for sharing your wonderful condo, I hope it is available for our next trip.

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice, relaxing stay in Sanibel. The condo was very comfortable for my family of five. The kitchen was very well stocked and had everything we needed to cook our meals. Nice to be close to the beach. Beach chairs are available in the condo. We hope to return to this condo in the future.

A great vacation for the whole family!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a wonderful experience at Compass Point! The condo is really lovely and clean with beautiful views of the Gulf. We traveled to Sanibel for a family vacation with our 3 young boys. We really appreciated that the condo has great amenities for the kids including a travel crib and high chair for the baby and beach toys making it easy to travel to Sanibel without bringing a lot! In addition to being right on the gorgeous beach, the pool was a wonderful spot for teaching the kids to swim and the kids really loved that the pool was warm!
