About Sharon Cloghessy

Hi, I'm Sharon. My husband Mark and I discovered Pointe Santo on Sanibel Island while surfing the Internet during a blizzard in 1998. We've visited Pointe Santo every year since, finally purchasing our own place in 2004.

We visit our Sanibel home regularly to make sure it's crisp, clean and inviting for our guests, many of whom return each year. Come and find out why!

See you at the beach.....

Sharon Cloghessy purchased this condo in 2004

Why Sharon Cloghessy chose Florida South West

We have wonderful memories of our times at Pointe Santo: family reunions, children learning to swim in the Pointe Santo pool, collecting shells for the kids' science projects. Spring, summer, fall or winter, there's always something wonderful to discover on Sanibel Island.

What makes this condo unique

Pointe Santo C-36 is our home-away-from-home and we visit it often. For your comfort (and ours) we provide all the luxuries of home: a fully-equipped kitchen, washer & dryer in unit, fine linens, games, books and puzzles. And you can't beat our VIEW!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were four college roommates from the '70's -- now retired teachers -- who, since we live in four different states, have a destination get-together each year. Sanibel was on our bucket list and we couldn't have chosen a more beautiful place to stay. Our breakfast view from the lanai was as beautiful as the picture shows, and you see that lovely view from the living room as well. There are five buildings in the complex and we thought this one had the best view -- you can see both the lagoon and the Gulf. The location of the complex is good -- great beach and relatively close to restaurants and shopping.. It's important to be right on the beach because parking is a big issue on both Sanibel and Captive. We tried shelling on all the beaches on Sanibel and Captiva that were listed in the brochures as being good ones, but concluded that our home beach was the best one. The condo itself was beautiful and nicely appointed. Plenty of room for the four of us with comfortable beds, plenty of dishes/silver and a washer/dryer. In addition to the lovely view, the condo development has a number of gas grills and a place to wash both feet and shells when you get off the beach to go to your apartment, which keeps grit where it belongs. The development itself had a nice mix of retirees and families. We spoke with quite a few neighbors who said that they'd stayed at a number of different places over the years, but Pointe Santo was one they liked the best. Our only regret was that we didn't learn 'til the last day (from a neighbor we called the "shell lady") that the SUPER-good place to look for shells is on a sand bar fairly far from shore. So, if you see people way out there, but only in water up to their knees, you might want to join them! We did real well just staying close to shore, though. We loved both Sanibel and this particular condo. We plan to return someday for another stay and are hoping that this same apartment will still be available. It was perfect!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! Mark and I just love when guests enjoy Sanibel as much as we do. Isn’t shelling the best? And yes, those sandbars are great paces to find some of the best shells. Here’s a hint: Sanibel Library has one of the very best shell collections. Be sure to check it out the next time you’re on the island. The Community House hosts an international shell fair the first week of March each year. That’s pretty spectacular too! Thanks again for your review. Hurry back! ~Sharon

Our Week in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our third trip to Sanibel Island was better than our first. The location of Pointe Santo de Sanibel is the best. From the manicured lawns to the Beachfront views, this property is the place to stay.

"Simply Sanibel" home away from home condo is the most relaxing place to stay. The million dollar view from the Lanai, the upgrades in the condo to the friendliness of the owners, these are the reason we return. There is everything we need in the condo, especially the space. The Girls enjoy their own room and bathroom, and we enjoy the large bedroom with beach views for us.The sound of the waves crashing on the shore while you lie in bed is so relaxing. The kitchen is complete with all appliances needed, coffee maker and Blender too. It feels better than home, it is very relaxing!!!!

Our family of 4 enjoy the biking paths, the wildlife refuge, the Lighthouse and Pier. We always find new and exciting things to do on the island and visit a few favorites each time.

On this trip, we visited with friends staying on the island as well. We all wish we could return once we come home. Our friends recommended the island to us and we always recommend the island to others. We have enjoyed talking about Pointe Santo and hope to return soon.

Thank you again for allowing us to enjoy your little piece of paradise and look forward to visiting again.

The Maki Family,

Ontario, Canada

A Week in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our recent stay in this well-equipped condo. The property was spotless, attractively furnished, and very comfortable. The lanai, overlooking the lagoon, gave the feel of being in a tropical paradise. It was only a short distance from the condo to the pool or the beach. The pool was well kept and the beach was clean with numerous lounge chairs for guests. The owner called to make sure that we were satisfied with the condition of the condominium and that there were no problems. We highly recommend C-36 Pointe Sante for your next visit to Sanibel Island.

Since this is our 8th year returning to Pointe Santo we know what to expect! The condo is clean and nicely appointed. The newer appliances in the kitchen made for easy dining in. (which we did a lot this year because the children wanted to go back to the beach and hot tub after dinner)

We are grateful for our "home away from home". Already booked for 2017!

Sanibel Island, located on Florida's gulf coast just west of Ft. Myers, is famous for its shells. Sanibel is also home to 230 different kinds of birds, many of which can be seen at the J.N. 'Ding' Darling Nature Preserve. Although 75% of the island is preserved for wildlife, there's plenty of shopping and dining to be found on Sanibel, much of it within a short bike ride of our vacation home.
