About Leslie and Andrea

We are 2 families in NY/NJ whose collective five fantastic kids love Sanibel! We are super excited about this 100% updated and modern condo with direct gulf view. We go out of our way to provide you and your family with more than you would expect from this top-of-the-line condo.

Leslie and Andrea purchased this condo in 2014

Why Leslie and Andrea chose Florida South West

Sanibel Island is the best vacation spot - that's why travel expert Arthur Frommer named it the #1 vacation destination in the world! We're super close to the beach, which is steps from our pool. The newly renovated Sundial resort is right next door, which features several restaurants and 2 bars open for your use. There are tons of cute, fun restaurants on the island. You can bike the whole island. Sanibel doesn't feel like the stereotype of 'Florida' - there are no chains on the island, the beach is totally unspoiled with famed amazing shelling, majority of the island is a preserve so there's lots of wildlife/birds - it's great for all age groups - It's quiet and peaceful, but water sports and nightlife are minutes away. Between the incredible endless beaches, exotic flora/fauna and wildlife, it really feels like the Caribbean.

What makes this condo unique

The beach is right there! People are friendly and easy-going. You feel yourself 'lighten' as you drive onto Sanibel over the causeway. Everything is minutes away. Great shopping & opportunities to work-out (Sanibel Recreation, biking, Sundial Resort restaurants/bar)

Excellent condo to enjoy Sanibel!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect! We were looking for a place during our Spring Break that would consider partial week rental. So thankful we found this unit. The kitchen was well supplied and stocked, the beach chairs/umbrella and coolers were awesome especially since we had flown into town. The Sundial complex is rather large, but you would never know it. During Easter week we rarely ran into anyone on the stairs, hall or to/from the beach. There are community grills and tennis courts and pools about everywhere. Our kids loved the pool. We loved the quick beach access. Rented bikes and had them delivered/picked-up on site. Loved sitting on the screened lanai watching the sun rise and set. Wonderful gulf breeze that kept the palms rustling. There were even several bunny rabbit sightings on the lawn below the lanai! Andrea and Leslie are wonderful owners and have a great property.

We would definitely rent this property again!

Wonderful extended stay

  • 4 of 5

This condo was great for us. It is very well laid out and stocked with almost everything you want. We were there for just short of four weeks and had our three little granddaughters join us in mid-stay for a week. It is close to the pools and a very short walk to the beach. The beach "closet" is fully stocked with chairs and toys so you really don't need to bring much in the way of beach supplies. Andrea and Leslie were very responsive and easy to work with. We would highly recommend this rental. It can use some touch ups on paint etc., but nothing that should or would worry a renter or prevent them from using the unit. Having owned a home in Florida for 10 years, it is a constant battle to keep it "fresh." Thanks Andrea and Leslie for a wonderful stay.

Great condo, spectacular view

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable condo with a fabulous view from the balcony and living room. Steps away from the beach and a beautiful pool. Worked out very well for two couples to share .

Perfect Winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week at the end of February. The condo is clean, well designed, and comfortably fit my wife, myself, and 3 kids. You can see the beach from the porch / lanai, there are communal grills outside, several pools within a 2 minute walk, and shuffleboard (which the kids really enjoyed, much to our surprise.) There is a closet outside of the apartment that has chairs, umbrellas, beach toys. There are beach towels in the condo. There is a parking space included in the rental. We thought that the beach right outside the door was the best for shells, at least for the week we were there, but the condo is centrally located and it is easy to check out the other beaches and all of the attractions. The owners were great: prompt, responsive, but unobtrusive. Honestly, I can think of nothing that could have been improved and I would recommend this condo unconditionally. We plan to stay there again!

Exactly as Advertised - Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 stayed for 5 days in early December. Despite being a very large resort/condo complex, it felt largely empty most of the time. We had plenty of space to spread out on the beach and rarely ran into people using the pool (which, despite the mention of the use of 4 pools, 3 are not really practical as they are on the other side of the complex. The one that was close was more than sufficient, however)

The unit was very clean and quiet, and offered enough space for a larger family with young kids. I can't stress how great it was to have access to beach towels, chairs, toys, umbrellas, etc., which made our time at the beach all the better. Despite being on Sanibel for 5 days, we never had an excuse to leave the island.

Andrea and Leslie were great to work with prior to arrival and offered all the reassurances that everything was taken care of ahead of time.

I would definitely recommend this place to anyone and look forward to going back.

Convenient Beach Location and Nice Condo

  • 5 of 5

The Condo was conveniently located near the beach and the provided beach chairs/toys were very appreciated. The condo had everything we needed and the stay was quiet and comfortable. We were close to restaurants and shopping. Really enjoyed our stay, we will be back sometime soon.

Map

Car: recommended

Steps away for your use are our Condo pool & pristine, shell-filled beach.

Sanibel Recreation Center is a 7 minute drive - great weight room, classes, lap pool & pool with slide..great value!

To avoid confusion, Sundial Resort is separate from our privately owned/managed Condo. Our 2BR Coastal condo rents at rates 30%-50% lower than comparable size units/views rented thru the Resort.

Our building, J is steps away from a large, pristine private Condo pool for your use (never crowded/always a chaise available!), gorgeous view of gulf from our kitchen, living room, master BR and screened lanai. We provide photos & precisely what to expect in décor, location & view. Sundial Resort rents out in rotation - you find out which unit, décor, location only at check-in.

Sundial Resort's waterfront restaurants and bar are open to you.

A Resort ameneties package is an option (confirm prices/availability with Resort) - $30/day per adult for use of their pool (though we love ours!) kayaks (Tarpon Bay is another option), golf discounts - even adding this option, our condo is a far superior value.

Must sees during your visit are the Sanibel Lighthouse, sunset drinks at the Mucky Duck on Captiva Island, dolphin cruises, a bike or drive thru the Ding Darling Preserve for amazing bird and other wildlife sightings.

We have lots of other recommendations including the best restaurants (we've tried literally all of them)...to share with you upon booking.

As another option, we also own/rent out a beautiful 2-bedroom condo in Ft Myers at the Marriot Sanibel Harbour Resort (with use of all amenities & spa/fitness facility there), right before the causeway onto Sanibel, with an awesome view of San Carlos Bay. Please check out vrbo.com listing 629862.
