Property description

This fourth floor, penthouse, condo is completely remodeled and fully equipped for a great vacation. This unit has gorgeous direct gulf views. It sits slightly behind the beachfront building but it is about as close to beachfront as you get, without paying the beachfront prices. Located at the quiet, west end of the Sundial complex, it is steps to Sanibel's pristine beaches.

Wall to wall, floor to ceiling sliding glass doors maximize the breathtaking view. The sliders open to the screened lanai from the bedroom and living room. The fourth floor location affords the security to leave the doors open at night so you can fall asleep to the sound of the surf and the sea breezes.

The condo has a king bed in a true one bedroom unit, with an insulated wall dividing the bedroom from the rest of the condo. For an extended stay this can be quite beneficial, since it provides the quiet and privacy to sleep while others are up in the other rooms. The living room has a queen sleeper sofa.

The unit has a washer and dryer. The kitchen is fully equipped with a refrigerator with ice maker, stove, dishwasher, microwave, blender, coffee maker and all that you need to cook and dine comfortably. Two 1-speed bikes, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, beach toys and beach towels are available free of charge. The building has an elevator. A wagon is provided to help get your belongings to the unit.

You will find 2 flat panel TVs with cable, a Blu-Ray/DVD, iPod dock/clock radio, CD/mp3/radio combo, and free Wifi (although it is a challenge at times, on the island). There is also a small book and DVD library in the unit. Other amenities, including BBQ grills and shuffleboard.

This is a non-smoking condo and no pets are permitted, per association rules (so please don't ask).

PLEASE NOTE: This unit does NOT include use of the resort amenities such as fitness room, hot tub, loungers and kayaks. If you desire these amenities, you must rent through the resort or Royal Shell Vacations and pay an additional fee. Most people do not find the amenities worth the extra expense.

You WILL have use of 4 of the 5 pools on the property. Only the main pool is excluded. There is a pool right outside my building. The salon/spa, pizzeria, market and all resort restaurants, including the tiki bar, are open to the public. The tennis courts are considered public and may be reserved through the resort. Call (239) 472-4151 for fees.

Come stick your toes in the sand and find out why Arthur Frommer listed Sanibel as the number 1 vacation destination of 2011.

Sanibel is a naturally beautiful island that is known for it's preservation of wildlife and habitat. Protected from over development, it is unique among other vacation destinations in Florida. No high rises here. The J.N 'Ding' Darling Wildlife refuge takes up nearly fifty percent of the island. Drive, walk, bike, canoe or kayak through the refuge to see the hundreds of resident and migrating species of birds. There are 50 species of fish, 230 species of birds and 250 kinds of shells found in and around Sanibel's waters.

Experience the wildlife side of Sanibel by stopping at CROW, our state of the art wildlife hospital, for an education about the wildlife found on the islands and the injuries that often occur from our human activities, as well as how to avoid being part of the problem yourself.

The Sanibel Captiva Conservation Foundation can give you an understanding of Sanibel's flora as well as their involvement in the Sea Turtle nesting program.

There are many boutiques scattered around the island for the shopper in the group and more excellent restaurants than you can possibly experience in one trip.

Enjoy a drive to Captiva and discover its unique character, great sunsets and dolphin-watching cruises. Stop in for a drink at the gulf front restaurant, 'The Mucky Duck' or for a scrumptious Katie cake at the famous 'Bubble Room'.

Off-island, in Fort Myers, you will find the very educational Edison/Ford Winter Estates. Enter another time and see where these two great entrepreneurs developed a friendship and got some of their inspiration. Harvey Firestone was next door too. I am not a museum person, but this place is fascinating! If nothing else, you an enjoy the estate gardens and the river front view.

Baseball spring-training is a big draw to the Ft Myers area. The Minnesota Twins and Boston Red Sox train here annually. The city is also in negotiations with the Washington Nationals. Theater, concerts, museums, and a surprisingly active downtown round out the Ft. Myers experience. But once you are on Sanibel Island, you probably won't want to leave!

The Key West Ferry is 12.5 miles away at Fort Myers Beach. Take a day trip to Key West or stay the night.

Other Activities:

Golf: There are two top rated golf courses on the island, just minutes from the condo. Another is located just 15 minutes off island, and dozens more courses can be found around town.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I grew up in Louisville, KY. My mother always called me 'nature girl'. From my youngest photos, I seemed to always have an animal nearby. I spent most of my life working with animals in one capacity or another, so when I visited a friend on Sanibel and discovered the natural beauty of the place, I was hooked.

Why the Owner Chose Sanibel Island, FL, USA:
In the mid 1980's, I took a job working at C.R.O.W (Care and Rehabilitation of Wildlife), the wildlife rehabilitation hospital on Sanibel. I got to know the island and it's unique, nature- friendly attitudes. I left that job after a couple of years but have continued to vacation on Sanibel regularly. I never found any place else that brought me the peace and tranquility of this island. It is a special place.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
I searched for several years before finding just the right property. When I opened the front door and saw the phenomenal view, I knew my search was over. Although it is not technically beachfront, it's pretty darn close! This condo has everything I looked for on my vacations, washer/dryer, comfortable sized rooms, large screened lanai. Add to that the fact that nothing can ever be built in front of my unit, to spoil the view, I was sold. Although I am more of a beach person, it is nice to have a pool right outside the building and the complex is NOT next to a public beach, so it isn't crowded. The 4th floor location makes it safe to sleep with the doors open, listening to the surf. It is a truly great place to spend time.
