  • We always come back to this condo

    "We have been returning to this condo since we first found it. We stayed at John and Audrey's condo the first week of June this year. Our days of travel were not the traditional Saturday to Saturday and John was very flexible to work things out to get us in. Last year we stayed for longer than the 7 nights and we were also accommodated. We love this condo. It is beautiful inside. The tile and stone throughout is just incredible. The master bath is done completely in stone and is a great space. They have remodeled this condo with a different layout from the other condos at IBC. The master bath is large and private. The kitchen is another area they gave a lot of attention. We cooked nearly all of our meals in the kitchen. We only ate at restaurants twice while we were at Sanibel this time. We wanted to maximize our time on the beach and in the water. All of this said, the main reason that we chose this condo in the first place, besides the beautiful interior, is the view of the Gulf. It is not a direct beachfront property, but the view form the screened in lanai is wonderful - the palm trees and the Gulf- what more could you ask for. My husband fishes from the beach here and gets going very early in the morning. I can watch him from the lanai before I go down. Also when you open up the blinds on the wall of windows, it is like the condo is an extension of the outdoors. This year there were two little frogs that could somehow scale the windows and hung out along the sills. The shed has chairs and umbrellas and some toys for the beach. There are 5 beach towels also available in the condo so you don't have to pack them. Paper and soap items are also provided. There was plenty of dishwasher detergent, but I would recommend buying some laundry detergent. I did at least 2 loads of laundry each day. With kids, something is always needing washed and it is so nice to be able to wash them in the evening or morning right in the condo. It also makes it possible to pack lighter. We come to Sanibel for this location. We could stay the entire time right here along this stretch of beach and not visit any where else. It has a great condo, fishing from shore, lots of different animal life, great shelling, and a multitude of people who are happy to be doing the same things you are. We will definitely be returning to John and Audrey's condo and are thankful that they have made it available to us. - Mary"

  • Gorgeous Pool!

    "We stayed here the first week of August 2016. There was 3 couples and 3 kids ages 3,5 and 10. The house is so modern and decorated beautifully with a nicely stocked kitchen and comfortable beds like so many other reviewers stated. The pool area is perfect. It has a ledge that is 1/2 foot deep that the younger kids loved to play on and the table in the pool was perfect place to have drinks and watch the Olympics that were on while we were there. Huge basket of beach towels for anyone to use. The walk to the beach was only 2 blocks and there are lots of sand toys, Tommy Bahama beach chairs, bikes, etc. 7 of us could fit around the big table for meals and the 2 little ones loved their special table off by themselves. But we did have a couple of minor issues and one not so minor issue . . . 1. The water heater broke the first day we were there and it took us a couple of days to compare notes and realize that all of us were taking lukewarm showers. The pipes run underground so close to the surface that the water was semi-heated since it was August not ice cold water. Emma tried her absolute best to get service men out there quickly but it was a tank-less water heater and needed both a plumber and electrician to come out. So there was a lot back and forth between the two on the order things needed to be done and we were a lot more involved than we wanted to be on our vacation. It did not get fixed till Thursday (we arrived Saturday prior). We did get compensation but it took a month. 2. The kid's room (with the bunk beds) has a door that leads outside. Of course, all the kids tried to open it and the youngest one ended up sleeping with parents for the week because of the door. I completely missed that detail in the pictures so just be aware. 3. The master bedrooms do not have locks and open directly out into the living room. Our kids loved to open our door when we were getting dressed. 4. One of the master bedrooms has a port hole window looking directly out to the street that does not have any window treatment over it. We ended up just stuffing a blanket in the window to block it. 5. If the waterfall is running in the pool, the pool is not filtering. The waterfall was so pretty and fun to play under but on the Friday of our stay the pool company came by for a check and told us the pool had not been filtering all week. If water overflowing from hot tube, then water is being filtered."

  • Key Largo Rental

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our month in this home. The property managers and owner were very helpful and were 100% there when needed. The house is beautiful and equipped with everything you can possibly need. It was extremely clean and well maintained. We enjoyed having a hot tub as January 2016 was the coldest on record for quite some time. Beautiful to sit in and take in the canal and sunsets. We liked having the 2 living rooms, one where the grandkids could play or watch tv and one for quietly reading. The master bedroom was amazing and it's walk in closet is to die for! The location is in close proximity to grocery shopping, medical clinics and restaurants. I highly recommend this home!"
