                                                            Great location!

                                                            mary m.

                                                            This unit is very convenient to the pool, and ground level. It was just perfect for what we were looking for. The unit is not large, but we do not spend a lot of time inside when we are on Sanibel. Betting could be updated, pillows, and we did see some palmetto bugs in the unit. That comes with the territory when you were in Florida, but should be treated!!!! I would stay here again, but hope some updates are done.

                                                            Owner's Response:

                                                            We really appreciate you taking the time out to share your experience with us.

                                                            We are glad you found the unit convenient and perfect for your stay. Please accept our apologies for the non very comfortable pillows and the palmetto bugs.

                                                            Like you said it's very normal for Florida weather to find these bugs, specially during hot and humid days, but we will make sure the place will be treated properly.

                                                            We look forward to have you with us in the near future.

                                                            Kind Regards,

                                                            Kingfisher Vacations.

                                                            The location, on ground floor, was wonderful - 138 steps to the beach - easy in/out with our bikes.

                                                            Sandra M.

                                                            The condo needs updating, repainting. We have stayed in that floor plan before and the area from the living room to bedroom had glass paned doors. This condo had an accordian door which blocked visibility but not sound. Our former condo had a TV in the bedroom; this one did not.

                                                            The furnishings were OK. We did not use the sleeper sofa in the living room. If we wanted to, there were no sheets, mattress pad, blanket for it. There were pillows in the closet but they needed cleaning....gross!

                                                            The kitchen appliances were old but worked. The dishwasher would tilt out when the door was fully opened. The faucet on the kitchen sink needed an aerator as water would blast out of it. We attempted to buy one for it but couldn't find the right fit for the older faucet.

                                                            The location is adjacent to the main resort clubhouse with pool, hot tub, restaurant. Initially we thought it might be too noisy but it was not that bothersome. The benefit was having Bailey's grocery annex nearby. A walkway was very close to our lanai so there was no privacy when we were in that area. Many individuals came and went after renting bikes, swimming, etc.

                                                            On arrival, there were some major issues but our vacation rental company, Kingfisher, resolved them speedily. They were wonderful! Examples: the main leg support for the king size bed was broken so the bed sunk in the middle. The bed frame was propped up by bricks. TV remote did not work; VCR worked but not the remote....that remote was not replaced; vacuum didn't work but was fixed within an hour. There was only one oven rack; another was ordered and brought to us within 3-4 days. When dark, a total of 3 large bugs had appeared in various places. Bug spray and a roach motel were brought to us. There were 4-5 rusted, bent unusable beach chairs on the the lanai with pool junk that appeared to have been left behind by other guests. Kingfisher, upon our request, removed everything and replaced them with two new Nautical beach chairs and umbrella. There were no beach towels for us to use....glad we brought our own. We did not ask for any; we are sure Kingfisher would have provided them. In comparison to other lanai furniture, ours was pretty tacky. We purchased a tablecloth to cover the worn table. New lanai furniture is needed.

                                                            There is a large humidifier under the breakfast bar. It has a hose which appears to be connected to the dishwasher drain. However, it was not self draining.

                                                            Thank you for your review. We are glad you loved the location. We would agree that the condo would need some updating. We are sorry this home was not a good match for you. Our apologies for the all the inconvenience caused during your stay. We have found that a good conversation with a potential guest about their needs and expectations is very helpful. Please do not hesitate to call and we will go over the highlights and shortcomings of a specific home/condo. Thank you again for taking the time to write this review.

                                                            Kingfisher Vacations

                                                            Not worth the price

                                                            Tom G.

                                                            Things I think need attention.

                                                            1. Exterminator, there are some very large Florida bugs living there.

                                                            2. The bed frame is bent with a block holding up the center, not level

                                                            3. Floors are very dirty, must keep socks on and wash daily, never barefoot.

                                                            4. Cannot leave via glass door, not able to lock when leaving, not screen door either.

                                                            5. Glass in sliding door has lost seal

                                                            6. Did not realize we couldn’t use Sun Dial facilities, got run off beach chairs and pool

                                                            7. I can tell they have been updating facility but workmanship very poor

                                                            8. Condo not worth the price.

                                                            9. Original picture used to solicit is not of this condo

                                                            Hi-

                                                            This is in the ad we run everywhere-

                                                            "Sunbeam shows a bit of wear and tear due to it's age but with it's low price and great location it's a value that can't be beaten.

                                                            *****Currently guest cannot use the main Sundial Pool but can use the other three pools for no additional cost.*****

                                                            Some amenities may require additional resort fees paid directly to the resort.".

                                                            We apologize for the other issues you encountered. We ask all guests to let us know of any issues upon arrival or over the course of their stay so we can(and will) address them immediately. As we will now be doing with your comments.

                                                            This is one of the least expensive units on the Islands so it may be difficult for you to find the value you are looking for.

                                                            Thank you- Kingfisher Vacations

                                                            Unit is ok. It could use some updates.

                                                            Would be nice if there was a laundry basket in unit to carry laundry up and down stairs to washer and dryer. Location is great-next to shell pool, short walk to beach, right across from tennis courts. Unit was not very clean when we arrived, but reality company reimbursed us the cleaning fee. Shower curtain needs replaced, had mold on it.

                                                            Owner's Response:

                                                            Thank you for the review. We will ensure there is a laundry basket and new shower curtain. We apologize that the unit was not up to your cleanliness standards. This unit has not been updated for awhile and comes off as a little older/not as clean as some other units. Please understand this is by no means an excuse or reason, just good to know for potential future guests. We do think there is great value in the unit and its location as you mentioned for the price! We hope to see you again.

                                                            Needs a lot of minor Maintenance

                                                            A few of the items are as follows: The front door did not always shut. The cable repair person came while we were out and the door was not closed when we got back. We had the same problems many times. The ground fault outlet in the kitchen tripped for no reason more than once. The shower did not shut off. It was so bad that the faucet was black from the water dripping on it. There was no light in the closet because the light bulb had been remove. With a little attention it could be a nice unit. We had access to the beach from our porch but there was no lock on the screen door or the door from the unit. We had to walk around the unit to lock the front door.

                                                            Disappointed. Especially for the price.

                                                            There was a dehumidifier running when we walked in and a horrible stench. Damp rid bag hanging in closet, full of water. Dehumidifier had to be emptied twice a day. The entire unit was dated and bare.
