Reviews

One of the most beautiful and relaxing beaches in the country

The view was amazing, especially at sunrise. Shell hunting was the best I've seen anywhere in the world, from Hawaii to the Tuscan coast. Kids spent the day collecting starfish, conchs, and sand dollars by the dozens; diving in the calm shallow waters. Tide pools offered a safe space for our toddler to play. Shore birds came in numerous varieties. Shore fishing yielded catfish, redfish, permit, (small)black tip reef sharks, sea trout, sheep head, Spanish mackerel, and others. We could also watch lagerhead turtles and dolphins less than 50 yards from shore at high tide. Condo price was reasonable for the experience. We would definitely do this again.
While the beach experience was amazing and beautiful, and the condo was clean and spacious there are a few things to note:
1. The owners are in direct control of your air conditioner. If you don't close a door just right, so that it lines up two metal strips, they shut it off for up to two hours at a crack. It took us a bit to realize this as it was not clear in the literature.
2. There are quiet hours from 11pm to 9am but these do not apply to maintenance who may be utilizing power tools above your head as early as 7:30am nor the grounds keepers who may start mowing as early as 8am. We're not partiers and we get up early so this didn't bother us but it might bother some.
3. While the condo itself was great for our family of 7, several guests made it quite clear that our kids were not welcome at the pool, in any of the public areas, nor for that matter at the beach. This is not the fault of the owner and we blew them off but be aware, some people come to get away from kids so you may have to deal with scowls, comments, etc..
4. Last, we felt there was an unreasonable expectation that we wash our own beds before we left.
Regardless, once we had these things figured out, none of this ruined a spectacular vacation. We've already recommended this property to several friends.

Lovely vacation rental experience

We were very pleased with our rental property and vacation. The condo was nicely furnished, clean, comfortable and had a great view. Proximity to the beach was great with a very nice board walk and wash station. We would definitely go back to this property. - Anonymous, Saint Johns, FL

Missing some simple things...

We stayed at this apartment in Sanibel with 6 people for 7 nights over Christmas.
The location is good, a very short car or bike ride to the main drag, and even bikeable to Captiva.

The space is laid out well so it very comfortably fit our group.

Our main gripe with this listing is that it lacked very basic small amenities. When we arrived on the first night, tired from traveling and eager to clean up before bed, we found that there wasn’t any shampoo anywhere, just a couple of bars of cheap soap. Following that same trend, there were only four rolls of toilet paper in the entire place, so with a group our size (which was still smaller than what the listing says it can hold) we ran out very quickly and had to buy our own.

The kitchen wasn’t very well outfitted either, in that we were only given a small bottle of dish soap and had to buy our own sponges in order to do dishes.

Overall we enjoyed our stay here, but spending $20 more on making the place liveable for VBO-ers would have made a huge difference.

Spring Fun

Overall the experience was excellent. We'll be coming back again. The only negative was when we checked-in at 5pm: the room still hadn't been cleaned. We left and had to come back 45min later. - Anonymous, Troy, MI

Sanddollar A202

-Great Location, Clean and well maintained, and the most comfortable beds ever in a rental! Amenities were just right for our needs. Grilling area was clean and excellent... If we come back to Sanibel we would definitely stay here again.
-Pool was a little small, and no-see-ums are rampant so definitely use bug spray in the pm's. We were attracted by the picture on VRBO which showed a direct path to the beach but that wasnt the case, felt like that was a little misleading. - Anonymous, Lebanon, VA
