About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

What more could you ask for – Sanibel Island and a two bedroom, two bath condo directly facing the Gulf of Mexico!

Tarpon Beach is an exclusive, low-rise (three story) complex consisting of only thirty units, with a heated pool as large as those typically found in complexes of 100 plus units, a private and well maintained tennis court, and an amazing beach, which is accessed directly by a walkway from the beach side pool. The beautiful but private entrance to the property is graced by manicured tropical plantings and impressive driveway pavers (no overheated blacktop here!).

Our condo is on the first floor living level, approached by the nearby stairs or elevator. Being a corner unit, the living room and dining area walls are highlighted by large windows, allowing ample light and cross ventilation from the refreshing Gulf breeze. The corner setting also enhances the large screened lanai, which is entered from both the living room and the master bedroom. The dining area seats six comfortably and the kitchen is well equipped. New cookware and dinner ware were recently added, as well as new, small appliances (coffee maker, toaster, blender, etc.).

The condo received extensive remodeling in 2011. All the windows and sliding glass doors were replaced with hurricane/impact resistant glass and frames; the kitchen was updated with new cabinets, granite counter tops, built in microwave, new stainless sink and faucet, and a new refrigerator with ice maker; the master bath received a new tiled walk-in shower, new tiled floor, brushed nickel fixtures, and new lighting; and, the guest bath was updated with a new wood vanity, granite counter top, and new sink and faucets.

For entertainment there is a 42 inch wall-mounted TV, VCR and DVD player in the living room, a 32 inch TV and DVD player in the master bedroom (in the armoire), and a 26' wall-mounted TV in the guest bedroom(all new flat panel TVs). Free wireless and wired internet access is also provided. The pool is nearby, but far enough so that your peace is not disturbed by pool noise.

Our guests also have use of the ground level storage room (lockable), and the beach chairs and umbrellas kept there. The storage room is right next to the numbered, under cover parking space for the condo.

There is no place else in Florida like Sanibel Island – natural, pristine, quiet, beautiful beaches, no traffic lights and neon signs, but more than enough to do, with ample shopping, restaurants, and exploring. Once you go there you’re sure to return, time and time again.

About The Owner

'Actively' retired, residing in NJ. Have been visiting Sanibel almost yearly since 1998. In 2010, decided it was time to stop renting and start owning, and very happy with that decision.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2010

Why The Owner chose Florida

First, Sanibel is a very special place, unlike the rest of Florida in so many ways. Tarpon Beach, compared to many other condos that were shown during a real estate 'blitz', has the perfect combination of location, size, amenities, and tranquility.

Comfort and location

  • 5 of 5

This unit is in a great location on the island, close to grocery store, restaurants and wildlife refuge. No need to drive to another beach to shell as it was great at the condo. The condo was comfortable, well furnished and the kitchen well equipped. We relaxed using the chairs and umbrella on the beach. It was nice and quiet. We had a very enjoyable stay and were sorry we had to leave.

Wonderful condo

  • 5 of 5

We had such a amazing time at this condo while on vacation with our two kids! I can't recommend it enough!

The condo is a corner unit and only looks out on the beach and beautiful vegetation. It was so nice and quiet the whole time we were there and we loved sitting out on the screened-in patio and relaxing. It was perfect for our kids as the pool was shallow and warm and the beach had amazing shelling. I think it's the best beach on the island! There are games and movies also available and we enjoyed playing Apples to Apples with the kids.

The included bikes were fun to take out and there are also beach toys and chairs available to use.

The condo is gorgeous and clearly kept well updated, we will definitely return again!

Didn't want to leave - LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, well maintained with great amenities. Well equipped kitchen, lots of towels, beach chairs, bikes. Great location.

Quiet building with a very short walk to the beach. Great pool. Very friendly neighboring guests and owners. We plan to return to Sanibel and hope to book the same place.

The response and service from the management staff and owner couldn't have been better. Can't wait to go back.

Wonderful Visit in a Stunning Setting

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Sanibel Island for over 20 years but usually shared an old house with friends or rented an older bayside cottage.. This was our first time in a condo rental, and I wish we had found it years ago. The unit was ideal AND significantly cheaper than what we've payed in the past for inferior accommodations. The condo was modern, very nicely appointed & perfectly located on a beautiful beach with a shopping plaza a mile away. We found the unit to have all the features we could have wanted: a large master bedroom with king bed, walk-in closet, ocean view & en suite bath; second bedroom with twins & adjacent bath; newly remodeled open-concept kitchen with all appliances; and large living/dining area with water views, large flat screen TV/DVD. The large screened deck faces the water & is appointed for sitting & dining (small electric grill). The large pool is close by but around the corner to minimize noise. Beach access is via the pool & across a wooden walkway (50 yards from pool). The beach is sandy, gently sloping, & generally uncrowded. All in all, we had nothing negative to report & have signed up for 2 weeks next year and a week this October. And the owner is very pleasant & easy to work with.

Perfect First Sanibel Experience!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first big family vacation to Florida, and we chose Sanibel based on some friends' experiences. From our research online, it looked like this complex was where we'd want to be--and we were right! The complex is located in the heart of the island, close to everything. We knew it was close to the beach but we couldn't believe how close--just a short walking bridge away! The kitchen had everything we needed and John even brought some games and puzzles to make sure our girls would have something to do during those "down times" before and after leaving the condo in the morning and evening. He even suggested an exotic bird show at the RV park that was FREE and ended up being one of our top favorite experiences from the week. We wouldn't have even known about it if he hadn't told us ahead of time. The unit was very clean and spacious and in a quiet location. Beds were comfy and I loved that there was a rocking chair in the living room. The beach chairs and towels were perfect and my husband loved being able to take a bike ride each morning with the included bikes. The heated pool was a hit with our girls as well. We took a walk to Bailey's Tract one evening (which is very close to the condo) and saw a few alligators and tons of turtles, which were both on the "must see" list for our girls! Mid to late April was the best time to go in our opinion, as the weather was perfect and the beaches weren't crowded. I can't say enough positive things about our week on Sanibel Island, from working with the property company and owner, to the wonderful memories we made. We hope we can return someday and we'd definitely stay in this condo again!
