Spend your day relaxing by the pool, or on the beach. You can't help doing the 'Sanibel Stoop' to find the most beautiful shells in the world. Sanibel also offers the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge just minutes away. The refuge is part of the largest undeveloped mangrove ecosystem in the United States. It is world famous for its spectacular migratory bird populations. You can rent a canoe or kayak and paddle your way through this amazing wildlife refuge where you will see hundreds of migratory birds and you may even spot a manatee!

World class restaurants and shopping are just down the road. If outlets are more your thing, just hop across the causeway back to Fort Myers for the Tanger Outlet Mall, 10 minutes from your door.

If you're a baseball fan, then you'll be happy to know that Fort Myers is the Spring Training grounds for the Minnesota Twins.

So whether you want to hike, shop, eat, or just hang out at the pool or beach, this is the place!

Sanibel Island is a barrier island just off the southwest coast of Florida near Fort Myers. Sanibel Island is about 12 miles long and 4 miles wide, and is known around the world for it's fabulous shelling beaches. Due to Sanibel Island's unique geographical orientation, lying East to West instead of North to South, it acts as a scoop and gathers seashells along it's beaches. The average temperature in Sanibel is about 75 degrees. There are over 26 miles of bike trails and over 15 miles of beautiful, soft, sandy beaches.

Keywords: No Stairs to climb!! Walk a few steps from your car to the front door. Walk right out the Lanai to the heated pool, shuffleboard, tennis, and the beach! Easy for families, perfect for couples.

Our ground level condo offers a newly remodeled kitchen, dining area, family room with pull-out sofa, king size bed in the master, two twins in the second bedroom, and 2 full baths. The screened lanai is accessible from the living room and master bedroom. This end unit is quiet with lots of natural light. Everything you need for the perfect beach vacation.

The friendly onsite management is available 7 days per week to help you with all of the details. There are even onsite bicycle rentals for a nice ride on the bike trail. Walk or bike to two of the best breakfasts on Sanibel--The Sea Star Cafe (0.4 miles) or The Lighthouse Cafe (0.7 miles)! Or after a long hot day in the sun, grab a refreshing frozen treat at Pinocchio's ice cream parlor (0.7 miles).

About Renee Reber

We spent our honeymoon here over 30 years ago and fell in love with this island instantly! We dreamed that one day we would be able to buy our own condo here! It took 25 years, but it finally happened. Now we love it so much and want to share it all with you.

Renee Reber purchased this condo in 2012

The beautiful warm breezes and awesome shelling that can be done here on Sanibel is part of what makes this island so special.

Sandalfoot Condo

  • 5 of 5

I really cannot say enough about the property and the owner. Setting up the rental was so very easy, and we really love the location of the condo unit. This is our second time renting this particular unit, and we purposefully selected Sandalfoot and this unit to vacation in. We highly recommend this for your next vacation!

A Place of Enchantment!

  • 5 of 5

I've found that the success of a vacation can largely swing depending on the venue in which I have stayed. The beach, weather and dining will remain the same, but the true difference lies with the reservation. An otherwise beautiful night out can be ruined by coming home to loud neighbors or a broken air conditioner just as a long day at the beach can be turned into absolute relaxation and serenity with a hot, pressurized shower, pillow topped mattress and an undisturbed night to gaze under the stars.

I am delighted to say that our stay at Sandalfoot 3D1 was entirely the latter.

We arrived after the scheduled check-in, no problem at all, and promptly unpacked and relaxed. The condo is well lit, open, splendidly furnished and accompanied with a variety of books, films, games and quite possible the most impressive lineup of kitchen utensils and appliances I have ever seen.

Being on the ground level, we had supreme access to the beach without having to carry chairs and coolers through flights of stairs. The condominium amenities included several propane grills, a large and clean pool, accompanied with many chairs and umbrellas, a well maintained tennis court, and a sturdy boardwalk with a sink and hose for rinsing off shells and sandy feet.

The location on Gulf Drive is close to all the shops and eateries, without being on a busy stretch of road. Pinocchio's famous ice cream is just a minute down the road and lighthouse is an easy walk along the shore.

The beach is very clean and uncrowded. The shelling is second to none and the breeze was constant, creating a tranquil setting against the hot sun.

We were extremely happy and comfortable during our stay. Sandalfoot is classy and in excellent repair and our condo at 3D1 was the perfect place to call home. Sanibel Island is truly a paradise, with much variety and a mellow, mature atmosphere. We had an amazing time and expect to be back soon!

Beautiful location and memorable getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time staying at Sandalfoot Condominium on Sanibel Island and I absolutely loved it! Sanibel Island is a beautiful getaway and the Sandalfoot condo was a perfect place to stay at. The unit was nicely furnished and decorated and provided a great layout with comfortable seating and beds. The unit has a very open kitchen and dining area which made it ideal for cooking meals each day.

The location of this unit is extremely convenient and offered many benefits during my stay. Not only is it located on the ground floor, meaning no stairs to walk up and down, but it is also an end unit on the quiet end of the property which made my stay even more peaceful and relaxing. Additionally, the unit location offers quick and easy access to the shuffleboard court, tennis court, grills for grilling out, and the condo’s heated pool.

The beach is a short scenic walk from the unit and is an extremely serene and calming environment. I thoroughly enjoyed relaxing in the sun and spending time on the beach each day during my stay. The ocean is refreshing and the many fascinating shells that you can find on the beach are great for collecting and bringing home with you as a souvenir.

During my stay I was able to explore the various nearby shops and excellent restaurants to dine at on the Island. In addition, the Sanibel community is incredibly welcoming and positively contributed to my overall stay.

I had such an incredible experience vacationing in Sanibel Island and this condo was the perfect place to stay at to enjoy all that the Island has to offer!
