About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Awesome Gulf-Front location! Sits very close to the water.

The screened lanai provides spectacular views in three directions of the Gulf of Mexico. Beach lovers will enjoy looking for the many varieties of seashells that are found on this world famous shelling beach.

Sanibel Surfside is a small complex with only 38 units and provides a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. Visitors will enjoy the temperature controlled pool, tennis courts, shuffleboard, and gas grills. The complex is conveniently located on Sanibel's desirable east end, and close to numerous restaurants, shops, grocery stores, golf courses, and the many multi-use trails which can take you all over the islands by bike, roller blade or foot.

Wildlife is abundant on Sanibel Island, of which over half of the island is a nature preserve. Dolphins romp in the gulf waters and are always a delight to see.

This well-equipped condo unit has been family owned since the 1970's and was completely remodeled in 2005. The master bedroom with a king size bed and adjoining master bathroom allows beautiful views and sounds of the Gulf of Mexico. The screened lanai is a perfect setting for casual meals or relaxing with a book on the chaise. The guest room area provides twin beds and another bathroom. We provide everything you will need to make your stay complete, including Free Wi-Fi, televisions, DVD players, stereo, movies, games, and beach equipment.

About The Owner

Our mother bought this condo when it was built in the 1970's and it has remained in our family since then. We three sisters have enjoyed bringing our children to Sanibel Surfside and we all continue to enjoy being at our beautiful home away from home. We travel to Sanibel as often as possible and make sure it is in top condition for our guests.

Among the numerous things Sanibel has to offer, we particularly enjoy the nature, the biking, the beach, and the experience of being in the most glorious place on earth.. We love to swim in the pool and in the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. We see dophins regularly and have even seen manatees swimming by. The stars at night are amazing.

Why The Owner chose Sanibel

We immediately fell in love with this condo and island after our mother purchased the unit. Many of the original owners or families are still there and welcome our rental guests to the community atmosphere of the complex. The owners take great pride in the landscaping and plantings surrounding the pool and on the grounds.

What makes this condo unique

Our direct gulf front unit is on the 3rd floor, which is the top floor of our building. The sound of the Gulf lulls us to sleep at night and the beautiful sunrise greets us each morning. We hope that you will experience this paradise you will never forget.

Romantic Honeymoon on Sanibel Island

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I honeymooned on Sanibel Island and stayed in this glorious condo right on the beach. The condo offered a gorgeous view of the gulf and the beach and the atmosphere was quiet and relaxing. The sounds of the surf and the gulf breezes lulled us to sleep each night and we enjoyed beautiful sun rises in the mornings. There was a nice selection of movies and music and we appreciated the beach equipment and beach towels that were supplied. The kitchen was well-stocked and we felt right at home the minute we arrived. We hope to return to this wonderful condo each year to celebrate our anniversaries.

AWESOME VIEW of the Gulf of Mexico from this Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I returned for a second time to this condo unit and our experience was as great as the first time we were here two years ago.

We had an absolutely wonderful restful time!. Walking into the condo was like walking into peace and tranquility!

We love the screened lanai, and being able to hear the waves of the Gulf while going to sleep and when waking in the AM.

The amenities of laundry, kitchen, electronics, games, puzzles, books, Free Wi-Fi, soft, comfy furniture to sink into. Everything you could possibly need to enjoy a visit. Of course the beach is so wonderful, warm and so close!

We also appreciated this CLEAN and NON-Smoking condo so we could appreciate the Gulf smells as well as the Gulf sounds.

Both of us enjoy all of what Sanibel offers, with the beach, and the multi-use trails where we love to bike and roller blade. We would recommend this condo to anyone who would like both a relaxing, as well as an active vacation. Whatever suits you, this condo is where you want to be.
