About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Located on beautiful and quiet West Gulf Drive, Villa Sanibel is the closest complex to the Gulf of Mexico. With only 20 units, this property is very private and the perfect location to relax and enjoy Sanibel's world famous shelling and spectacular sunsets.

Our poolside second floor condo is only steps to the beach, and boasts two bedrooms (king bed and two twins), plus a cozy loft (two twins), as well as two full baths. The cathedral ceiling enhances the light and spacious feeling of the living and dining area, with a screened lanai overlooking the sparkling pool to enjoy your morning coffee. The condo has a full kitchen, washer and dryer, 3 flat screen TV/DVD's, plus wireless internet service.

Since Villa Sanibel is a small complex, privacy is foremost, yet the superb location is convenient to the best walking, biking, and nature trails on the island. Seventy percent of Sanibel is protected wildlife preserve and refuge. A heated pool, beautifully landscaped grounds, grill area, and a tennis court complete your vacation stay. Golf courses, marinas, restaurants, shopping, health club, and a movie theater are only minutes away by car or bike.

Sanibel Island is a truly unique place with its miles of unspoiled beaches and numerous wildlife preserves and habitats, and no traffic lights or high-rise buildings. Once you visit, we believe you'll agree with us when we call it our 'little bit of paradise'.

About The Owner

Our family's permanent residence is in the Washington, DC area, and we love to vacation at the beach. After years of travel to various locales, we found Sanibel Island to be the perfect experience for a warm winter escape or summertime at the beach.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2011

Why The Owner chose Florida

We vacationed at various places on Sanibel Island for many years. We decided to buy our condo at Villa Sanibel because of its beachfront location on West Gulf Drive. The complex has only 20 units and is beautifully landscaped with its own pool and tennis court. Our condo is poolside and only steps to the Gulf of Mexico and its fabulous shelling,sunsets, and uncrowded beach. Directly across the street is the walking and biking path which can take you anywhere on the island without a car.

What makes this condo unique

We have found Sanibel Island to be a unique destination in the United States, where man resides in harmony with nature. The weather is tropical, and the island is 70% nature and wildlife preserve. There are no traffic lights or highrise buildings to block the beautiful sunsets and nature views. Truly a step back in time - but with all the modern amenities to enhance your vacation experience.

Very Nice!!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here...we found the condo to be very clean, comfortable & tastefully decorated...had everything we needed! Loved the privacy & quietness of this small complex! This poolside unit was next best thing to being ocean was so nice to just walk out the door & jump in the pool after a hot day at the beach...there were times that we had it all to ourselves. The owner & management company were great to deal with...would love to be able to come down & stay here again!

For anyone who's never been to Sanibel...we'd highly recommend Bailey's for all your grocery needs! Also have to put a good word in for Capt John Huston up in Captiva...we booked a fishing trip with him & had a great time. Capt John is a great guy...very personable & patient...well worth the money!
