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.

Wonderful condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful condo in Sanibel. The owner Zdenek was very hospitable and happy to help with anything. The condo has everything you need. It is just steps away from the beach and pool. We rented bikes for our stay and rode to shops and restaurants. We would love to come visit again.

We loved staying in this condo and we wish we could have stayed longer.

The location of the condo was perfect. It was so peaceful to sit on the lanai and the tropical views of the gulf and palm trees were beautiful. The condo was spotless, very comfortable and the owners were very responsive and easy to deal with.

We definitely hope to return to this condo. Cindy D. Oct. 2017

Upon checking in I knew our stay was going to be great. Even before that, contact with the owners was extremely pleasant and quick. Zdenek, himself, checked us in and offered lots of advice about the island. He made some great eating recommendations as well. The condo is stocked with everything you might need. From coffee filters to beach towels, this place has everything. The sheets were soft and comfy, the shower head was perfect. The location was superb and it is near an elevator if you aren't up to the stairs. Parking is easy and it took less than five minutes to go from front door to beach- front heaven. The condo does have plenty of beach chairs and umbrellas so there is no need to drag anything from home. The ac worked perfectly and having HBO was awesome since we didn't want to miss Game of Thrones. All in all it was a lovely weekend. Bring a bucket for shell collecting!

Walk out your door and enjoy the beautiful, warm ocean, watch dolphins, pelicans and other shore birds, shell to your heart’s content on the fine sand beach.

If tennis is your game, play on one of six clay tennis courts on site, for a fee. Are you enthusiastic golf player? There are various golf courses in close proximity. Explore the Island by bike! Sanibel Island features many miles of bike paths, and bike rentals are available nearby.
