About the property

Recently Renovated Condo with Cable TV, Wi-fi, Washer/Dryer, Computer & Printer

Crossing the causeway bridge to Sanibel Island always feels like leaving all the stress in the world behind. Our restful Gulf Beach condo has only 14 units and is located on a quiet stretch of beach on the desirable east end of the island, far away from the public areas.

Our unit has been completely renovated with new carpeting and crown molding. You will find a very well equipped kitchen, a brand new master bedroom king size bed, and a walk-in shower in the master bathroom.

Watch the pelicans dive and the dolphin play from your Gulf front, screened-in lanai (you can view the Gulf from the lanai, living room, dining area, and kitchen). Walk the 12 miles of white sand, seashell bestrewn beach (the lighthouse and fishing pier are a scant 20 minute walk from your doorstep) or ride the 26 miles of Sanibel Island's bike trails (start just across the street from the condo).

The condo has all the amenities you could desire. Full size front loading HE washer and dryer. High speed internet service with Wi-Fi and your own Windows 7 computer and printer. There is a large Hi-Def, Comcast cable TV in the living room with DVR and a Blu-Ray DVD player. Flat screen TVs with DVD players are in both bedrooms. There are stereo speakers for your IPOD or MP3 player, a large paperback library, and a good selection of puzzles and board games. You will find a hair dryer in each of the bath rooms. Your own private covered parking space is next to elevator. There are beach towels and a ground level storage room in which you will find beach chairs, sand toys, and other beach goodies. Celebrate your escape to paradise with a glass of the complementary champagne.

Shortly before your arrive, we will send you our 'Bon Voyage' letter detailing our favorite places-to-go, things-to-do, and, of course, our favorite restaurants of the over fifty to choose from on the islands (We live here and try to visit them all; it's a tough job, but somebody has to do it).

Have a wonder-filled Sanibel Island vacation!

About Elaine and Dave

We fell in love with Sanibel on a business trip in 1983. We returned a few weeks later to buy our first condo, Gulf Beach #103. We raised both our daughters, Chelsea and Sabrina, from infancy with numerous trips to Sanibel (until school started and teachers expressed displeasure on their absences. In 1999, we decided to move to Sanibel and we have lived here year round since. We hope you too will grow to love the island as much as we do. Elaine and Dave

Elaine and Dave purchased this condo in 1984

Why Elaine and Dave chose Sanibel

Gulf Beach is located well away from the larger resorts and public areas. With only 14 units sharing the heated pool, there is seldom a crowd during your sunbathing. Located less than a mile from the end of the causeway road means getting on and off the island is easy and fast. Above all, the fantastic view of the Gulf endeared us to the condo.

What makes this condo unique

We try to make your vacation stay at Gulf Beach #103 as relaxing as possible. We have a digital lock on our unit so that you need not stop somewhere to pick up the key. We also leave the key to our storage compartment located on the ground level. Inside you will find beach chairs, sand toys and other beachy things to make your day at the shore more fun.

Perfect place

  • 5 of 5

This condo was absolutely beautiful. It was extremely cozy and clean with a perfect view. It was perfect us and suited all of our needs. We ate almost every meal out on the lanai. We loved our stay at Gulf Beach and will definitely be coming back.

Owner's Response: We love to eat outdoor on the lanai at Gulf Beach too. You are close enough to hear the waves and watch the sea birds. We hope you can return soon. Elaine and Dave

Great place - highly recommend it!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is exactly as advertised. Clean, nicely decorated and well equipped. The beach is always enjoyable and not crowded in September. There was a lovely bottle of champagne waiting for us which was a nice touch. Great balcony for relaxing in the evening. We would rent again. (-:

Great Vacation Week!

  • 5 of 5

First time at Gulf Beach, and we loved the complex and the unit. Especially liked the beautiful furnishings and decorations, ceiling fans in every room and lanai, comfortable master bed with walk-in closet, beautiful bathrooms, new carpeting in living and bedrooms, underground parking and beach storage closet, keyless entry, shaded pool area, fully equipped kitchen, full-size appliances, and even a computer with printer for our boarding passes. This condo had everything! We would recommend this unit, in a low-density complex, to anyone who loves a beautiful and tranquil beach vacation.
