About Jack Carleton
We have been visiting Sanibel Island since 1982. At one point we owned 3 ocean front rentals simultaneously. After Hurricane Charlie hit, in 2006, we scaled back to just our personal favorite - Villa Sanibel 1-A. We would love the opportunity to share our island paradise with you. Although you can only get the Owner Direct rates through us, we do have an on island agency that sends you a formal contract, Collects the actual rentals, arranges extra services like Baby Bed, High Chair, Bicycle Rentals & Delivery. Upon arrival they will give you your keys, directions, and acquaint you with their Concierge Services. 24/7 Local Assistance.
Jack Carleton purchased this Condo in 1993
Why Jack Carleton chose Sanibel Island
When we first discovered this wonderful island paradise, we never would have bought Villa Sanibel 1-A...you see, it cannot be properly insured since it is SO CLOSE to the Beach & Ocean. Now, it is actually painful every time we have to leave and cross the causeway bridge to the RSW Fort Myers Airport.
What makes this Condo unique
Where else can you be THIS CLOSE to the Beach and the Ocean? Wonderful shelling, sparsely populated West Gulf Drive Beach, pure tranquility inspires the fondest family memories. Only the Best Sunsets - Key West, eat your heart out! Come, enjoy this slice of paradise.

This is THE PLACE to stay!
This condo is the best location on the island! Literally steps away from the water. The beach directly out from the condo consistently had dolphins, pelicans, shells galore and beautiful white sand. The condo is fully stocked with beach gear, kitchen equipment, linens, etc. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here!
Being right on the beach was awesome
It was our first visit to Sanibel. Not knowing what to expect we absolutely loved the island and the condo. Open the slider and have coffee virtually on the beach and being 10 feet from having toes in the sand was awesome. There were great dining options. For me you vacation at the seashore you eat seafood. There are plenty of great options.
It was a refreshing break from our New England winter and would love to do it again.
Villa Sanibel 1A
We love Villa Sanibel. There were just a couple small fixes needed which I shared with the owner and he is taking care of those. It has a very special location and the unit has everything we need. We have booked our stay for next year.
Thank you for taking the time to let us know about the two minor issues. They are being seen to, and we really appreciate your feedback. looking forward to hosting you next year. Best, Jack
We have stayed here many times. It is like a week in paradise.
Location is wonderful. You are about 22 steps from the ocean. One can watch sunsets and the sun rising right from the Florida room. I would highly recommend this property .
Many Thanks for taking the time to share your experience. We cherish repeat guests and look forward to hosting you for many, many years to come. Happy holidays, jack
BEST PLACE EVER!
This was our 2nd stay here at Villa Sanibel 1-A. And Loved it all over again! The shelling this time was the BEST! I found 2 12 in long whole conch shells right out infront of the condo in waist deep water!!!!!!!! The sunsets every evening were AWSOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The dolphins came a bit closer to shore then we had seen in the past that was pretty cool to see. The farmers market they have Oct-spring was the best market I have ever been to! it is a shame it is only on Sundays! This time we went to the shell museum we thought it was well worth the time (about 2 hrs) and the $ to see all they had and learned a lot from the live tank talk! And again the no-see-ums got me good this trip! As long as there is a good onshore breeze the no-see-umz stay away but when the wind dies down they come out in force! Next time i will bring my lemon eucalyptus bug spray (by repel) and see if it works, no one on the island had it to buy :( ! We will be back this place has all you need in the best location i would not stay anywhere else!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks John for letting us enjoy your rental.
Until next time!
Thanks Jennifer...You make it all worthwhile. You are my kind of people. Happy Holidays, Jack
Amazing place! Great vacation spot!
We've been to Sanibel several times over the last few years and this place was one of the best. Right on the beach! We had a great time and the house was neat and clean and had everything we needed. One small complaint, I wish the bed in the master bedroom had a firmer mattress. It's a little weak, but that is a minor issue. We'll be back soon. Do yourself a favor and rent it!
Thank you for taking the time to write your review. Happy that you had a pleasant stay.
All 3 mattresses are nearly new pillow type which most guests seem to prefer. We look forward to your return visit. Best, Jack
Sanibel Island, a Barrier Island, has 14 Miles of White Sand Beach and has World Class Shelling, second only to the Seychelles Islands, off the coast of Africa. Home to the World Renown Ding Darling National Wildlife Preserve, over 1/3 of the island is dedicated to wildlife preservation. With paved Bicycle paths, Sanibel is known as the 'Nantucket Island of the Gulf Coast'. But our laid back island lifestyle means that ties, or jackets, are never worn.
