Barb Kowalski purchased this condo in 2004

Why Barb Kowalski chose Florida

We fell in love with Sanibel Island and purchased this beach front condo right after Hurricane Charley in 2004. We spent months putting this condo back together and have constantly upgraded since to ensure you enjoy the best beach views on the Island and have the vacation of lifetime in well maintained condo.

What makes this condo unique

The shelling is the best in Florida, watching the sunrise and sunsets, wildlife everywhere on an island that is 70% a nature preserve is what brings us back again and again. Then there are the bike rides and long romantic walks on one the best beaches in the world. The nightlife, restaurants and relaxing environment regenerate us. Talk to Caesar the parrot at entrance of Jerry’s grocery store. We cant do that in Chicago.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Some places are even better than you can imagine them.

I will be back.

Owner's Response: Bill and I are happy you enjoyed your stay. We fell in love those views when we saw them too. Bill and I must have looked at 50 other condos when we were searching for a Sanibel condo. This one has views and is much closer to the water than all the rest. We spend a lot of effort keeping the condo well maintained and equipped so every guest enjoys their stay when come in from the beach too. I am sorry we were booked for your next year vacation. We have many returning guests each year so the prime weeks really do go fast. Even we have to plan months in advance if we want to enjoy Sanibel ourselves. Bill and I enjoyed having you as our guest and hope you come back again soon. Thank you for your kind words. Barb

This was our second time staying in this condo and we hope to be back next year. We love sanibel and this condo is perfect for our family of 4. The view is amazing and less than 30 seconds to the beach is fantastic when toting around two small children. Do yourself and your family a favor and come stay at this condo.

Beautiful condo w/ soft beds

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Barb's Sanibel Surfside condo. It is it clean, well stocked and has a gorgeous beachfront view. We enjoyed a lot of time at the pool and found it to be immaculately maintained. Our only complaint is that the mattresses in the unit are very soft. We were unable to sleep in the beautiful beachfront master suite, finding the twin and double beds in the second bedroom a bit more firm. If you don't mind soft mattresses, you'll be thrilled with this condo!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. The view is spectacular and we do our very best to maintain and have the condo clean for our guest. Bed firmness is a personal preference. I am sorry you found the mattress too soft. The master bedroom mattress is an extra thick king mattress with a very thick pillow top which is only about 2 years old. It was recommended by the rental agency on the island; we will have it checked. We do hope to have you back again. Barb Kowalski
