About Paul

Born and raised in Longmont Colorado, we call Fort Collins, Colorado home now. Graduated from Colorado State University in 2000. Married the love of my life in 2002 and now have three well behaved 'energized' boys. Love fishing, golf and spending time with my family at the beach in Sanibel!

Paul purchased this condo in 2014

Why Paul chose Sanibel Island

Our family realized a long time ago that our best vacations all included a few key ingredients: amazing views, a great beach, spending time on the water and tons of amenities. Mother nature can also play a role… that’s exactly why we chose Sanibel Island as our vacation destination. The bay views from our condo at Mariner Pointe make this the most tranquil and enjoyable vacation Imaginable. Being on the ground-level is an absolute must, it connects you to your environment and allows easy access for the kids to play/fish and for the family to relax on the boardwalk. It also makes it very easy and convenient with luggage and groceries. We love Sanibel for the wonderful water views and white sandy world famous beaches! When you come you will want to explore the island and visit all the great “shelling” beaches all the way to Captiva. I have some great recommendations I am always happy to share with guests. We pride ourselves in a very simple rental process and look forward to hearing about how much you loved Sanibel.

What makes this condo unique

Great Tru-Surface tennis courts right out the front door. Walk a little farther and watch the fishing boats dock up at the Mariner Pointe private stretch of the inlet canal. Or, better yet, bring your own boat and dock it here for your entire stay. (very nominal fee) You will love exploring the island of Sanibel and the best way to do it is renting bikes for the family from Billy’s bike rental. This waterfront suite was Completely redone in May 2014 with a modern casual “beach house” design! Come enjoy new beds, linens, bath accessories, hickory floors fresh paint and new quartz counters. HDTV’S in every room! Time to relax and enjoy all that Sanibel has to offer, we would be happy to have you stay! If you’re like us you won’t want to leave!

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The location is ideal. We loved sitting out on the boardwalk, especially late in the afternoon. We watched the dolphin and manatee as the pelicans flew by. The condo was well equipped, newly renovated and clean. It was conveniently located and we loved walking to the lighthouse.

Beautiful inside and out!

  • 4 of 5

The condo was spotless when we arrived. It was perfect for our family of 5. We enjoyed fishing off the pier. The kids enjoyed exploring and swimming in the heated pool! We used the grill to cook steaks one night. The view was gorgeous. We saw dolphins every day. It was also very quiet.

My only criticisms are that we needed more toilet paper, paper towels and dishwasher detergent. A family of 5 goes through these items quickly. The woman from housekeeping called us back the next day and delivered what we needed.

The dishwasher is difficult to load from the sink. Otherwise a fantastic vacation!

Loved our stay at Mariner Pointe

  • 5 of 5

We have nothing but great things to say about our stay at Mariner Pointe. Shortly after we got to the condo, unloaded with car with suitcase and groceries, my husband used the toilet and realized it wouldn't flush. We called the owner, Paul, and he said he could get a plummer out on Monday. This was Saturday and we were with another couple and would have to go through their bedroom to use the bathroom. Paul said he had another condo in the same complex we could move to until Monday. We checked it out and although we were going from a 3 bedroom to a 2 bedroom, the later condo seemed so much more spacious. We asked Paul if we could stay in that one and he was fine with that. The unit was clean, comfortable and spacious. It was appointed with everything we needed. I would definitely rent there in the future.

Great place..Location was a plus..

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying here. Would definitely return. The bedrooms were good size. The view was amazing. Only thing we recommend to the owners would be better drain in guest bathroom sink, a microwave with rotation function, and supply some extra towels.
