About The Owner

We first started going to Sanibel about 20 years ago with our children and we always stayed at Pointe Santo. The boys loved roller blading and biking around the island and we have many old photos of them in the pool. We finally realized our dream and purchased a unit at Pointe Santo. We look forward to enjoying all that Sanibel and Pointe Santo have to offer with our now adult children.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2011

Why The Owner chose Florida

This place really does have it all. Sanibel Island is easy to get to from Chicago, but once you've crossed the causeway, you're on a quiet tropical island. The island has an exclusive feel to it. We checked out all the condo complexes on the island and there's no comparison - Pointe Santo's the best.

What makes this condo unique

We love sitting on the beach or by the pool and no trip would be complete without renting bikes and touring the island. Every visit brings a new adventure: kayaking, fishing, learning about native wildlife or trying out a new restaurant.

Nice unit.

Had an awesome time lounging at the beach. The condo exactly what our family of four needed to make a week at the beach enjoyable. We will definitely look in to a stay the next time we go to Sanibel.

Wonderful updated condo

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in D42 was wonderful! The pictures didn't do the unit justice! Beautifully updated and renovated, it was like staying in a 4 star hotel!

The kitchen is modern and well equipped. We found that everything we could think of was there, even a crock pot!

The bedrooms were large and had ample room to move around. And the tva in each bedroom and family room were a great size! You don't have to worry about watching a 13 inch tv!

The master bathroom was heavenly! A huge glorious walk in shower, and counter space galore!

The outside patio and deck were a nice bonus! Great place to have your morning coffee or evening glass of wine! Just watch out for the no seeums. I left with a 100 or more bites! Of course that had nothing tondo with the unit, just Florida!

Overall a great, kid friendly, nicely appointed condo to stay in!!!

A perfect week!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous week in D42! This was our second time renting this condo and we would definitely return. Everything you need is provided, including beach toys, chairs & towels, which is great for families. The owners have made beautiful updates and it is evident that they truly care about their renters' comfort. The lanai and rooftop deck are especially lovely places to relax any time of day. The views from the rooftop are stunning, and this unique feature helps D42 stand out from other condos on the island. Pointe Santo is a gorgeous complex, with beautiful landscaping and an attentive staff. We love the location of Pointe Santo on the island, as you can watch both sunrise and sunset from the condo's beach. We think this is the PERFECT place to spend a week away from the cold winters of Minnesota!

Things I Wish I Had Known!

  • 3 of 5

Beware! If you want Air Conditioned comfort this is not the spot for you! We set the AC (exactly as the directions in the condo book stated) but it never got cool! Never! Spoke with the on site HVAC contractors, who happened to be on site doing maintenance. They worked in the unit and went on their way, but there was no improvement. So...after much sweating we shut off the AC and opened the bedroom windows!! Wait! Not the answer! Smokers in the hallway! (The condo even has ashtrays for smoking!!) So....we open the sliders! Wait! Not the answer- the slides open to the screened porch- but...the stairwell is open to the outdoors. So guess what, in came moths, bugs and even a gecko. So we sweltered both day and night. Ceiling fans of little help, they wobbled awful so could only be used on low speed.

Overall

VIP Rentals: Excellent. Arrived after hours- everything waiting for us in lock box. Condo very clean. Plenty of towels.

Condo Complex: In need of updating, very 70's

Island Location: Excellent- very central to everything. Went to Ding Darling, Shell Museum, and Lighthouse. Enjoyed all.

Pool: Nice, but very small and almost always crowded with children (parents did not honor the "adult" times)

Beach: Majority of chairs are in full sun- chained in place so you can't even move them to the shade.

Condo Unit: Well equipped, comfortable bed & furniture. Lots of tv/radio/dvd but never used any of them. Paperwork in condo warns of ants and not leaving food out. We had no food out yet there were tiny ants all over the kitchen. Updated master bath appears nice, but sadly quality poor- tile had multiple colors of brown grout, chunks of grout in the corner of shower, and pencil numbers written on all of the tiles is shower! Inattention to detail. Roof deck has lovely view, but it was so hot and sunny it was not practical to use.

This is my 3rd trip to island, I don't expect perfection, but I will not return to this complex.

Owner's Response: We’re sorry that your vacation didn't meet your expectations. The HVAC company addressed the cooling problem (they topped off the coolant) and reported that the unit was then operating normally. If the air conditioning was still not functioning to your satisfaction, our management company or the Pointe Santo condominium office in the building of your stay would have called for return service if they had been notified. In the semi- tropics, bugs and other pests are always a problem and every effort is made to keep them under control. Pointe Santo is a very popular family destination, especially during the spring season, and it is unfortunate that the time designated for adult only swim was not enforced fully during your stay. We will make sure the Pointe Santo security group is made aware of the issue. The public beach chairs are indeed strung together, however, we provide our guests with chairs and umbrellas located in our unit’s Beach Closet. We appreciate your feedback as we continually strive to improve our guest experience at Pointe Santo de Sanibel.

WONDERFUL....!!!!

  • 5 of 5

EXACTLY as described! Unit is beautiful and the view is amazing! Our stay was with 4 children (2 six year olds and 2 fourteen year olds) and they all loved it! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the rooftop deck. The beach is gorgeous, clean and big.....shells were plentiful too! We will definitely come back in the future.
