"My family (me, my husband, 2 year old and infant) really enjoyed our Sanibel vacation in this condo. We loved that it was spacious and we had tons of room to spread out with our family of four. The location within the condo complex was unbeatable- very quick access to both the beach and pool and parking right outside the door. The beach and pool never felt crowded and we spent pretty much all day taking advantage of both. The beach equipment and toys were great. They were really well stocked, even including bike helmets and a trailer for the bikes. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. There were plenty of extra linens. It was so nice having the washer and dryer right in the unit, especially with two little kids. We made good use out of the pack and play and high chair. Overall, this is one of the best places for kids that we have stayed- having the little extras like a high chair goes such a long way when you are flying and don't want to bring a ton of stuff. We loved the big wall of windows in the living room. It was very hot during our stay in August, so we never really had them open, but during cooler months I think it would be amazing to have them open and hear the waves! We found the local realty firm that handles the check in/out to be very friendly.
Overall, I would highly recommend this unit, however there were some minor things that could have used some attention, like the tubs could be refreshed, some doorknobs and outlets were loose, and the accordion doors for the den were coming off the tracks and hinges were loose. But those were all minor things. One major downside we experienced was some very loud construction going on in the unit directly above. We found out they were doing a major renovation, including taking out the old flooring and putting in new floors, which made for quite the racket. On days that the crew was working (over half of the days we were there), the noise made it so we couldn't sleep in in the morning and it made it difficult to get our kids down for naps during the day due to the noise. That was the only really disappointing thing about our stay, but we recognized it was completely out of the owner's control and we were just unlucky. On the days they weren't doing construction, we found the unit to be very nice and quiet.
Do I recommend staying here? Yes! Would I stay here again? I would love to!"
