About Dru

My dad and I work together to rent our condo and keep it stylish and well maintained. One of us is on-site a couple times a week to help manage the condo.

My dad loves to travel and regularly goes on cruises including an upcoming trip to Antarctica. He is no stranger to adventure. Our home base is Carmel, IN with Florida as a second home.

We love entertaining and offering our condo to those that want a unique and soothing beach experience.

Enjoy our condo! ps. we are both avid Ohio State Buckeyee fans but we love everybody!

Dru purchased this condo in 1983

Why Dru chose Sanibel

My dad worked very hard and was on the road a lot during his career with NCR. I remember him feeling totally relaxed only while on Sanibel. I see that a lot with hard working people when they visit Sanibel. They love the beach, the water and the lapping waves. They can totally get away from it all while on Sanibel.

My sister and I followed in my parent's footsteps by also buying a condo for ourselves. They were all located on the first floor and just a few steps from each other. We loved getting all families together for Christmas holidays and running from condo to condo. Being on the first floor enabled us to easily fulfill our daily activities of walking, sitting and running on the beach. We were in and out of our condo lanais constantly visiting each other and spending time on the beach.

What makes this condo unique

It is just a few seconds to the beach from our condo and each and every condo in our complex faces directly out and over the beach. The views are incredible and the access and proximity is superior to other properties on Sanibel. That's what first attracted us to this property.

Gorgeous condo and surroundings

  • 5 of 5

When you arrive the 1/4 mile drive in is lined with palm trees. The covered parking helps keep your car cool on hot sunny days. The walkway to the condo is clean and pleasant with native plants. Everyone is very helpful with anything you need. The shower, bathroom and comfy bed were beautiful. The living area was comfortable. The kitchen was perfect and well stocked. We enjoyed the screened in lanai every night. Safe from mosquitos and no see-ums. We enjoyed watching the wild rabbits and bird life. The view of the gulf was awesome and sunsets were spectacular. The beach was clean and not crowded. I walked it every morning, afternoon and evening finding many shells. I would highly recommend this condo for a vacation and I look forward to returning. Thank you for sharing your wonderful place and making our stay fantastic!!!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Shawna, for your stay and picturesque review. You've created an amazing visual of the condo and its immediate surroundings for others to imagine and hopefully desire for themselves. I'm delighted to hear that you stuffed your shell basket, lounged on the lanai and enjoyed leisurely strolls along the beach. Step by step, you satisfied our longings for beauty, rest and relaxation and enticed our prospective guests with a future visit at our trendy Sanibel beachfront condo located just 20 steps to the top of the sandy beach. Shawna, thank you very much for selecting our condo for your vacation accommodations. We were delighted to be your hosts and look forward to your return visit. Let us know when the longing for sun, surf and shells returns!

Lovely little condo!

  • 5 of 5

We were kindly contacted by management advising us of the option to change our travel dates due to issues caused by red tide. We decided to come anyway. The condo was small, with a very nice layout. The view from the living room was so pretty..showcasing a lone palm tree with the beautiful ocean beyond. The decor was calm and soothing. We saw so many tiny lizards, a little snake and three little rabbits. The shelling on the beach was amazing! The condo was supplied with everything we needed...except a pizza pan and a cheese grater...and a broom. :) Nice shower in the bathroom! We were sad to leave.

Owner's Response: Hi Tammy, It's so nice to hear from you! Thank you for your nice review as well as your patience and understanding while we dealt with our environmental issues. I'm so glad you decided to keep your reservation as I know how much you were looking forward to your much needed getaway on the beach. I was hoping the shells would be in ample supply for you. Please keep us in mind for future stays on the beach. I enjoyed all our conversations about your trip and would love to welcome you back. We will also have our on-site Guest Services team available for any questions or help needed during your stay, including the replacement of the broom, pizza pan and cheese grater. Glad you liked the "cool" shower! Thank you very much for choosing us for your vacation condo. We appreciate you!!

Owner's Response: I'm delighted to hear about your wonderful and relaxing experience at our Sanibel beachfront condo. However, I am sorry to hear that the condo size did not meet your expectations. We are fortunate to own two of the few one-bedroom condos available on Sanibel, providing a beautiful, comfortable and affordable alternative to the mostly two-bedroom condos on the island. Our guests frequently stay up to a month in this unit due to its amazing beach view, quick access to the beach, and chic furnishings and amenities. As posted, our condo is a pleasant 600 sq' and offers full size appliances in the kitchen and laundry area and full size frameless shower, single vanity and jumbo size mirror. Both the kitchen and bathroom are kept updated with the kitchen offering an expansive view of the Gulf of Mexico from the island/bar. For the benefit of future guests, I might add that these two rooms are in perfect scale to the size of the overall condo. In fact, the two-bedroom condos in our complex offer the identical size bathrooms for their guest and master baths. We would love to invite you back and experience our other one-bedroom condo that has had walls removed to provide a more open living and bath experience. It is VRBO #562857. We thank you very much for your stay and your feedback.

Owner's Response: What a delight to receive your thoughtful feedback, Paula. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at our beachfront condo and complex. Yes, our location is situation at the "elbow" of the island, making it the perfect magnet for attracting waves of shells. Sanibel is considered the shelling capital of the world and we are the perfect spot for shellers. Our first floor access to the beach offers many opportunities for collectors to run out the door to search for elusive mollusks any hour of the day and night. We're so happy you enjoyed our clean and well-maintained condo and complex. It truly makes a positive difference! Please consider our condo as your beach "home away from home" as we look forward to welcoming you back to Sanibel!

Perfect beach stay

  • 5 of 5

There is simply nothing to complain about this condo. The first floor walkout to the beach was perfect. For a one bedroom it was spacious. The kitchen is small but one of the best equipped we have ever rented. The bathroom shower looked to have been recently updated and was great. The bed was comfortable. Checking in was incredibly easy and we were told if we were missing anything to let them know before buying because they probably have it. Loved having the ability to rent beach towels and beach umbrella at a very reasonable cost. We will definitely rent this unit again!

Further, I'm glad to hear you loved the easy and quick access to the beach that is just 19 steps away from your lanai door! No advance planning necessary! And yes, our frameless glass, walk-in shower is new. Thanks for noticing that and also appreciating the supplies and equipment provided in the kitchen. Many of our guests love to cook with a view! Lastly, I will share your check-in compliments with our Guest Services staff who are your on-site concierge and maintenance team.

Over one half of Sanibel Island is protected preserves and refuge. The top rated destination besides the beach is J. N. 'Ding' Darling National Wildlife Refuge. It is open 6 days a week for touring.

Also we have 26+ miles of shared pathways for walking, cycling and blading. Yes, running, too.

Other great sites to visit are the Shell Museum, CROW, SCCF and the Chamber of Commerce Visitors Center. Also we have a Historical Village and historical Lighthouse at the east end of the island. That's just for starters!

The #1 activity on our beach is Shelling!! Our shells are collected from travelers all over the world. Our beach location is ideal for shells galore washing up on our beach. You can't beat it!
