About the Property
Make Yourself At Home In Our Beautiful 2 Bedroom, Fully Remodeled Condo
On the seaside, you can see dolphins feeding daily just a stone's throw from the surf, or watch the most breathtaking fuchsia sunset after a long stroll along the beach.
With a fishing license, you can hook some tasty snook, pompano, redfish, snapper and sheepshead just to name a few. Don't forget tarpon for extreme sport fishing. And mention must surely be made of the miles and miles of gorgeous trails available to bike lovers.
Whether your heart is set on a tranquil hideaway or a vacation packed with action, you're sure to find everything you need right here on the island. We islanders believe that there's never a dull moment on Sanibel, and we vacationer's believe that our time here is always too short!
This is why we are thrilled to offer you a rare opportunity to vacation on Sanibel in one of the loveliest hideaways on the island -- our secret condo, entirely remodeled in March 2007, with new beds, carpet, paint, brand new gourmet kitchen and much, much more! Our condo is located at the farthest westerly point of Sanibel on the most secluded tropical resort, adjacent to the wildlife preserve. What that means for you is that there's nothing else between you and the sea except for quiet winding paths and a private wooden bridge.
Because we consider our condo an extension of our home, we've invested only the best into it hoping to make it as luxurious and comfortable as a resort hotel, only more spacious and affordable. From the exotic hardwood furniture to the fully appointed gourmet kitchen; from the family sized sectional perfect for viewing a movie on the large flat screen TV to the lofty new beds and bedding in each bedroom, we made sure that 'rental' means 'sweet' (and not 'cheap')
Our goal is to make your stay on Sanibel memorable. Once you awaken to the birds cooing and the yellow sun streaming in, once you sit down to sip your coffee or hot tea on the enclosed and private lanai, we think that you'll also consider our Secret Sanibel your home away from home. We invite you to give us a try.

Located along the Gulf of Mexico, just a short drive from Fort Myers, Sanibel Island is justly famed for its sunsets, lighthouse and luxurious resorts. By far, the most popular activity here is shelling – you barely can walk a step on the beach without indulging in the so-called 'Sanibel Stoop' to search for shells. But there is so much else – fine accommodations, luscious dining (seafood, of course!), fishing, boating, and just plain relaxation, a chance to get away from the hurly burly, a chance to draw closer to nature.
Year Purchased: 2007
About: We fell in love with Sanibel many years ago and finally realized our dream by purchasing a place for us and our family. Today we also have the privilege to share with friends and people who want to discover beautiful Sanibel or, like us, already fell in love with it.
Why Gulf Ridge, Sanibel, FL, USA:
We are using our condo every year, and we want it to be a relaxing place with all the comfort of home, not a cheaply appointed rental unit. We think you will appreciate the difference too!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
My Secret Sanibel is unlike any rental. We have put our heart and soul in what is often our second home. From the gourmet kitchen to the beautiful paintings from late renowned artist Ikki Matsumoto, our condo invites you to enjoy the Island the way it is meant to. Regardless of where you decide to stay, we wish you a wonderful vacation in this beautiful, unique place! Remember to visit the Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge and make a wish for each sunset you see :)
