Why Zdenek or Zdenka Fiala, Proud Members of Sanibel-Captiva Chamber of Commerce chose Florida South West

Our guests value the exceptional cleanliness, perfect amenities and the location. Our condo is on the beach on the south rim of Sanibel Island facing the Gulf of Mexico; the beachfront is just 25 yards, our big pool just 60 yards from our condo. Our condo features 780 sq.ft. living area and 150 sq.ft. screened lanai and provides the biggest 1 BR floor plan within the Sundial Beach Resort. We have 2 queen size beds in the bedroom as well as a queen size sleeper sofa with spring mattress in the living room. Comfortable recliner chair, dining table with 4 comfortable dining chairs with casters, coffee tables and commodes complete the furnishings. There is an accordion wall between the living room and the bedroom for added privacy during the night.

What makes this condo unique

We are the owners of this condo for 26 years, live close by, do the check-in/out personally, are on call in case of necessity and will assist you with anything as needed.

Enjoy swimming or just taking a bath in the ocean, walking and shelling on the beach, watching shore birds and dolphins or swimming in one of our swimming pools. Relax on the beach or explore the island by car or on a bike and understand why we call it paradise. There is no hectic, no traffic, it is an ideal spot for relaxing vacation. Arthur Frommer placed Sanibel on top of his 10 worldwide Top Favorites 2011. 'Ding' Darling Refuge won Florida Monthly's best award for Best Place for Watching Birds the 7th consecutive year and is one of the top 10 most visited refuges in USA. When announced the 10 best Islands in the USA, Sanibel & Captiva named as #2. The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum received the Certificate of Excellence Award.

The resort has only buildings with 4 floors and no parking for the public (except those who stay there) which guarantees few people on the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Zdenka & Zdenek

Thank you for a wonderfully restful and peaceful time in your well equipped and very comfortable condo and at the Gulf. We most enjoyed the shelling and sun since we are always sun starved. We thank you for your hospitality and hope to return soon.

This truly was a home away from home--spotless and comfortable, everything we needed during our stay and more, great location for the beach and shops, and a warm, responsive host (and hostess.) This was our first visit to Sanibel and it more than met our expectations. we enthusiastically recommend the property to anyone wanting to visit Sanibel!

This stay was our 4th stay at Zdenek and Zdenka's condo. Everything is just as advertised. The Fiala's provide excellent customer service. The unit is in a condominium complex that is very well maintained. Highly recommended as demonstrated by our continuing rental of the condo.

A little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

This condo is a little piece of paradise. Those who know Sanibel Island will know that it is a little paradise and the reasons why. This condo is a little pice of that paradise because it is large, clean, tastefully appointed with wonderful views of the gulf from the large screened balcony. Steps to the beach, pool and grilling area and owners who care about your stay and are always accessible and who greet you personally at checkin in and checkout and who share the details of the unit in a clear efficient but relaxed manner. The owners are friendly and accommodating and offered suggestions on how to ensure our stay was as wonderful as we had hoped for. If you want to "actively" relax this is the place. Bike, swim, walk the beach and enjoy the sunrises from this little piece of paradise. Stay here if you can you will not be disappointed.
