This unit is great! The owners are awesome and truly make sure that the unit is something THEY would want to rent!

The view is something you never get tired of and the unit is very nicely appointed. Also, they provide plenty of items for beach/island life: beach towels, bikes, beach chairs, umbrellas, rafts, etc. If you are looking for a great condo in a very nice complex, on a wonderful island, this is it.

Lovely condo!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four has been coming to Sanibel for going on 20 years now. We've never stayed in the same condo twice, but I think that may finally change! We usually stay on East Gulf, so moving down to West Gulf made us a little nervous, but we loved it! Everything was so convenient and, best of all, the beach here was filled with the best shells we've ever collected. We came home with at least 150 conch shells and lots of other gorgeous shells. The condo itself is just lovely, super comfortable master bed, very dark bedroom when the blinds are closed, comfy couches, nice kitchen, etc. There is a locked storage closet guests can use downstairs so they don't have to bring any toys, chairs, etc. up to the unit. This unit is on the first floor, but it is over a parking garage so you can see all the water and people walking - but not really the sand. There is an elevator right outside the unit for convenience or bringing up your luggage and groceries. There was plenty of parking and it wasn't a crowded complex - more quiet which is what we love. The owner and rental company both checked with us to make sure everything was ok. We are extremely picky (in fact this is the first review I've ever written) and I can say this is the place to stay if you want a quiet, relaxing vacation with your family.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at our condo and thank you for the great review! We are glad you enjoyed the quietness of the property. With just 30 units spread out over 3 buildings Tarpon Beach has just the right vacation vibe which is what attracted us when we purchased our condo in 2008. If you decide to come back we offer a return renters discount!

Our family really enjoyed our stay at Tarpon Beach! The condo was way beyond immaculate and above our expectations. The kitchen was stocked with every possible small appliance and utensil needed. Bathrooms were clean and well stocked with towels. The master bedroom was so comfy, I can't remember when I had a good nights sleep on a mattress other than my own! The grounds are well kept and the pool was at a pleasing temprature. My kids were surprised daily with new bugs, birds and reptiles! The beach was prime seashell picking daily. We took home 3 ziploc bags of shells, coral and sponges!

The only downside-- no see ums! They are viscous little creatures that were combated with baby oil, OFF! and Lemongrass infused lotion. Thank you for providing a much needed relaxing family vacation. We hope to return in the future.

Owner's Response: Lisa and I are so happy that you enjoyed our condo during your family time on Sanibel. Yes, no-see-ums can be an issue especially with the wet summer we had. They are usually not a problem on the beach or by the pool during the day. If you are thinking of returning to Sanibel and staying at our condo please reserve your week with a refundable deposit so you can take advantage of our return renters discount!

Amazing unit that comes with all the bells and whistles. Condo is very clean and well maintained. Property owners reached out during our stay to make sure all our needs were met. I can't wait to book our next stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. We work hard to make sure our condo meets every beach vacationers needs. This means double checking our inventory of kitchen and beach items several times throughout the season. We look forward to having you again so you can take advantage of our return renters discount!

Beautiful condo with spectacular view of the Gulf

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Tarpon Beach and our first time staying in this particular condo. The condo is tastefully decorated, recently updated, well stocked and has an incredible view of the Gulf of Mexico. The pool is beautiful and never crowded due to the small size of the Tarpon Beach complex. Ed and Lisa were attentive owners and checked in on us during the week to make sure we had everything that we needed. They even provided a list of restaurants they enjoy when they are on Sanibel Island. We highly recommend this condo and will stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thanks! Even though we keep our kitchen well equipped it’s still nice to take advantage of some of the many restaurants on the island. And because you can bike to most them you get a chance to work off the calories!

awesome Condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Tarpon beach Condo unit 302. the view was great and very close to the pool. We never heard the people staying next to or above us. Our kids loved there room and there own TV. The unit is close to all the restaurants and town. We used the sand toys and chairs every day. The bike trails looked great but we never used the bikes. We had plenty to do with the beach and pool. The pool was always very warm and clean. It was never crowded. The owner went out of there way to make our dates work and make us feel welcome. We will stay here again!!
