Recent Sanibel Island reviews

  • Mid-July on Sanibel

    "We keep coming back to Villa Sanibel 3A for many reasons. We have tried other resorts and units in Villa Sanibel but prefer 3A because we have an assigned parking space right outside the entry door; we have no steps to climb since it is a ground floor unit; it is non-smoking; it is fully furnished; when we walk out thru the lanai, we are at the pool; just a short walk down the driveway and we are at the beach; there are several visitor parking spaces (unlike some other resorts); a short walk to the bike baths; a short bike ride to the grocery store, CVS and other shopping; and there is a BBQ right next to the pool . After trying several different weeks in June and July, we like the weeks starting after the 4th as a little quieter and meeting returning renters we met from previous years. Every year we have met different European travelers who have interesting info to share. Yes, it is hot in July but it is nice and cool in 3A. Sanibel Holiday manages the registration for 3A and is a great resource for information and assistance with personal needs. There are many good restaurants on Sanibel/Captiva and Sanibel Holiday as well as other guests at Villa Sanibel are great sources for recommendations. This year, relatives decided to rent another unit to experience all of what they have heard about Sanibel Island and Villa Sanibel. Much time was spent looking for unique shells to discuss and take home."

  • Summer Family Fun

    "We love this condo. It is in a great location on the beach. Wonderful views for morning coffee, great beach for swimming or playing. We love the storage shed since we come prepared with extra chairs, umbrellas, beach buggies, beach toys etc - and we don't have to haul them into the room to leave daily mess. We also appreciate the parking stall since there is usually a massive rainstorm in the afternoon in the summer so the car is protected both from the rain -and the brutal daily sun. Washer and dryer in the room are perfect. Large tub helps us keep beach towels clean. This is our third time in this unit - so we are certainly repeat customers. Mr. O is great to work with."

  • Great Condo...On the Beach ...Terriffic Shelling...Serene

    "Stayed in unit F4 with my 2 elderly parents in August....Condo is directly on the beach, about 100 feet from the door. Shells very abundant, beach very quiet and not crowed like the beaches we have on the east coast. Condo was very clean and comfortable with all the necessities we needed to spend a wonderful week. The staff at the complex was very accomodating and made great recommendations to area restaurants and activities. Our favorite pastime was enjoying the ocean view from the lanai . We have rebooked for next year and look forward to our return ....Thanks for making this beautiful condo available to us !"

  • 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"
