  • 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"

  • Very enjoyable stay

    "We had a very pleasant stay at this unit. It was very clean, extremely well-equipped. However, the view of the Gulf was a big disappointment--the pictures were taken before the trees grew much taller! Still, the walk to the Gulf is short and rather just look at it, walking on it is even more enjoyable! Yes, there was truck traffic in the morning even with the doors closed you could hear it but it was quiet until 7:30-8:00am when it is time to get up and enjoy the day anyway--not really a negative. The pool was warm, sparkling clean, plenty of chairs and tables. The check-in experience was fine--everyone in the office is helpful and pleasant. While you are reminded several times to take out the trash not until the email with check-out instructions (the day before check-out) is recycling mentioned. At that point, not seeing recycling bins or any mention of recycling in the unit we assumed they do not recycle at the complex. It was great fun digging through our trash, brushing coffee grounds off plastic, glass and paper so we could obey wasn't pleasant. Then when we got to the trash bins there weren't any recycling cans. When I mentioned this at check-out I found out that the recycling cans are in another trash area on the other side of the building. Perhaps a second trash can labeled "Recyclables" in the unit would be helpful. For that to be the only negative comment shows how great our stay was! Will definitely be back--hopefully next time we'll be able to stay long enough to read some of the books while we enjoy the screened-in lanai spaces! Thanks for sharing your wonderful piece of paradise!"

  • Great Rental -- Great Location!!

    "My husband and I were extremely happy with this condo; it was perfect for the two of us! The condo looked even cuter in person than it does in the pictures provided here. The location on Sanibel Island was perfect. The beach near the condo seemed a little calmer than other spots further down the island (not that any part of the beach in Sanibel is overcrowded). My husband and I really appreciated that the owners provided beach chairs, toys, and an umbrella, too! The unit was very clean and well-stocked with kitchen supplies in case you are in the mood to cook while you are there. We did not take advantage of the pool or grills, but everything on the property seemed nice and well kept. The owners were great to work with, too. They responded very quickly to questions and were extremely helpful. We would definitely stay here again! :) As far as recommendations while you are on the island, our favorite place to eat was the Island Cow. We loved it! The shell museum was really interesting, too, and we also recommend renting kayaks through the Tarpon Bay Explorers (in the morning if you want to see fish jumping out of the water like crazy) if you are in the mood to get out and do something other than relax on the beach."
