About Marcelle Bennett
We visited Sanibel for the first time over twenty years ago and have since spent most of our holiday time on the Island. We are a UK based family living in a small Village in the centre of England. We try to spend at least two months each year in Sanibel enjoying biking, shelling, tennis, Ding Darling, the restaurants, the weather and pure relaxation. This, without any doubt is our favourite holiday destination.
Marcelle Bennett purchased this Condo in 2005
Why Marcelle Bennett chose Sanibel
Pointe Santo de Sanibel is without any doubt one of the best holiday destinations on Sanibel Island. It's central location at the southern tip of the Island makes it very accessible to the best beaches, wildlife preserves, shopping and restaurants whilst being in a tranquil and peaceful location with just the sound of the waves, the wildlife and the palm trees around the complex. Pointe Santo and its grounds are beautifully maintained and their are a wide range of Condo's to choose from all looking towards 600 feet of white golden sand. There is an on site Recreation Manager who organises a wide range of children's activities throughout the week and there are also well maintained tennis courts and and BBQ grills. You can relax on one of Pointe Santo's beach chairs all day looking out to the Gulf and in the evening you can walk down the beach to the nearest restaurant and enjoy a wonderful meal. Pointe Santo is a wonderful family holiday destination as well as being a place for a romantic holiday or just a place to relax and unwind. When you talk to other Pointe Santo visitors you will probably meet people who have been returning sometimes in excess of twenty years and even some adults who visited as children. Pointe Santo is very special and very different from most US holiday destinations.
What makes this Condo unique
We have stayed in various units in Pointe Santo and we decided to buy B36 when it was marketed for sale; we simply fell in love with it. The Gulf front units at Point Santo are nice, but most only have a view of the sea and at night nothing. B36 has the benefit of both near sea views and views into the lagoon and the beautifully maintained Pointe Santo grounds. As we enjoy eating out in the Lanai throughout the year, this combined with the luxurious accommodation were key reasons for choosing to buy our Condo. Our Condo is our second home. It is not a typical rental in that it is beautifully furnished and extremely well equipped. Most of our Guests are surprised by the quality and comfort. We enjoy dining on the Lanai in the daytime overlooking the Gulf and the Pointe Santo grounds. In the evening, the mood changes whilst having a candlelit dinner looking down into the attractive grounds. Our Condo is also ideally suited for beach walkers and shell collectors in being able to walk either east or west along one of Sanibel's best beaches on its southern tip. Similarly, in being centrally positioned on the Island, we are able to take full advantage of the Islands 24 miles of bike paths. We are well positioned to bike ride to Ding Darling Wildlife Reserve and also east to the Sanibel Lighthouse. The central location is also useful for ease of access by bike or car to a wide range of restaurants. We also enjoy an early morning game of tennis followed by swimming and the hot tub just yards from our Condo. We also enjoy lazy days having a BBQ lunch in one of Pointe Santo's Tiki Huts and crashing out on the beach chairs in the afternoon, knowing that the Condo is handy for cocktails and the odd treat. A unique benefit is knowing that just a few yards away from our Condo, we have an on site Property Manager there to help you whenever required. Only a handful of Condo's at Pointe Santo have this unique service.

Wonderful stay once again in Sanibel
We had a great time here at Point Santo- actually, we’ve never had a bad experience on the island. The condo was very clean and beautifully furnished. Will definitely be back
The condo was great and furnished nicely. It was very well equipped with everything needed to enjoy the sensational beach and awesome water. All the appliances worked (the washer & dryer need help but will be replaced in the fall) as well as the TV’s (3). The master bed was a little soft, but It worked well. My only criticism is that maintenance of the grounds needed help. The clubhouse needs work and the landscaping was not pristine. No supervision of pool behavior is provided and a band of teenagers acted like hooligans with no intervention. But.... check it out. The allure of the beautiful beach outweighs any minor issues that I mentioned.
An elegant and luxurious yet comfortable condo with a wonderful view of the ocean. The unit is fully upgraded including a well equipped kitchen and wonderful bedding. The grounds are beautiful with ample lounge chairs by the beachfront. Pointe Santo is located on one of the best shelling beaches on sanibel. Would definitely stay here again!
Thank you so much for your kind review
We stayed here last week and it was awesome! We could see the beach and sunrise from the lanai and our bedroom. Listening to the waves at night was magic. We could sit out back on the beach and watch the beautiful sunsets. The decor is very classy and it is obvious that the owners go to extreme lengths to ensure that everything is kept in pristine condition. The owner even called to make sure that we had everything that we needed and had great suggestions for us. If you love to shell, you don’t have to go far! Just a few minutes down the walkway and you’re there! Don’t forget to take something to put them in! There is a shell cleaning station right when you come off the beach, so you clean your treasures before you go back to the condo. They provided everything we needed for the beach, which is very helpful to not have to pack beach towels! We just can’t say enough about B36, it was perfect! We can’t wait to go back!!!
Very high class condo - we loved it and will be back next year.
We have stayed at Pointe Santo many times over the years and B36 has been the best by far.
The Condo is well positioned to enjoy beautiful views of the gulf and the central lake from the relaxing chairs on the lanai. The Condo furnishings and decor are 5 star and very well maintained. The Kitchen is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need and if you want to eat out some of Sanibels best restaurants are within walking distance.
The bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable and the adjoining master bathroom is spacious and beautifully maintained. With the cooler evenings it was lovely to sleep with the door to the lanai open and listen to the waves.
The owner provides good quality beach chairs and towels. There was also some shelling nets and children's beach toys should they be needed.
The owner called after a day or so to make sure that everything was ok. It was so nice of her to take the time to ensure that we were happy with everything. She also gave us some excellent restaurant recommendations.
Sanibel has always been very special to us and that is why we keep coming back year after year. We have now found a beautiful condo which surpassed our expectations. Without any doubt we will return to B36 next year for more of the same.
Avery special thank you to the owner.
Thank you so much Martin for your review We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay with us. We look forward to having you stay with us again in future. Sanibel is a special place for us all. Once you get the sand between your toes you will return.
Beautifully cared for and maintained, even New Air Conditioning just installed. Just the BEST!
This complex is situated on the next to the beach and unit B 36 has views of the beach, the lake and swimming pool which makes it special. We had a fabulous stay in a great accommodation, they really don’t get any better than this. The carpets while quite recent had just been cleaned, the unit was impeccable like going into a luxury home. I thoroughly recommend it and I will be back in the future.
Thank you so much for your kind wordsWe have indeed had New Air Conditioning and the carpets were new last year We love to keep things up to date and share our second home with guests We are so glad you enjoyed your stay
