Reviews

Cousins Reunion

Overall the condo was clean and in good location for the ocean viewing and walking to the beach. The condo air filter was not clean and was replaced upon request. There was a hole in the wall behind the front door where the door knob would hit it. It had been patch before but there wasn’t a door stop in place to keep it from happening and it wasn’t repaired before we arrived. The blender didn’t blend and the coffee maker had a lot of rust on the burner. - Anonymous, Reston, VA

Peaceful paradise

This waterfront condo was perfect. Clean and quiet with all the comforts of home. It was very hot during our stay and the central air did not disappoint . The bikes and beach accessories just made our vacation perfect ! I’ve never seen so many shells on a beach before . Great views and the grounds were pristine. Sanibel island should be on your bucket list! Everything is a short bike ride away. Lots of great wildlife to see and family friendly !!!! - Kerri G., ,

Paradise!

We had an amazing time at Sandpiper beach. The condo was exactly what we were looking for and the location was perfect. A view of the pool and ocean. We took full advantage of having both within a few steps. The location is quiet with a short bike ride or car ride to everything you need. The beach was essentially our own private beach for our complex. The condo will be updated this summer but it was perfect for us. I would recommend adding a few things like a crock pot, pizza pan and cutter but wasn’t a deal breaker. We are already making plans to return to Sanibel and hope to stay in this location again! - Ann H., Menomonie, WI

Short Stay

I have stayed here a couple of times before and love the location and this condo.Some improvements had been made since my last visit including a new flat screen tv in the lounge. There could be a few more cooking utensils in the cupboards but I don’t usually cook much anyway so it wasn’t a problem for me.

The condo was clean and well maintained as usual and the quiet location is excellent. I know from previous stays that there are bikes and beach chairs in the storage room on the ground floor but unfortunstely this time my stay was cut short due to personal reasons so I didn’t get to enjoy everything the condo has to offer, however I definitely recommend this condo for anyone wanting a quiet, relaxing break right on the beach and was just as described by Select Vacations. - David K., Holmes Chapel, Cheshire

Great Spot-Great Owners!

This June trip was the second year in a row that we have rented this same unit. We absolutely LOVE this location! The owners are great to deal with when ANY issues arise, or with any questions you may have before or during your stay. One reason we come back to this unit is the access to the "shed", in the parking area, where all of your beach stuff stays, no lugging boogie boards, umbrellas, chairs etc. up the stairs and getting condo filled with sand! The 4 bikes that come with condo make this an even sweeter deal. Covered parking is a major perk as well, no baking your car in the Florida sun!The location is perfect for Biking, in the center of the island, so getting around on the bike paths to anywhere is a breeze.I understand that this unit is undergoing renovation in July, thus ensures that we will return, as it was a pretty nice place already on our last two trips. Unit overlooks the pool and the gorgeous topiary, flora and fauna (bunny rabbits and birds everywhere!), and the OCEAN VIEW! I would highly recommend this condo, you will never be disappointed with the owners or the service you will receive from the folks at Select Vacation, all are great to deal with! What are you waiting for? LIFE IS SHORT,,HIT THE BEACH!! :-) - Brian P., Evansville, IN

Very nice complex

We were moved here due to some work not being completed at the condo we booked, but it all worked out great. First of all we have to say that Patience Rodriguze is amazing and we love her. We have been dealing with her for the last seven years and she is always looking out for our best interests, always making sure we get what we need for our stay on Sanibel. This unit is very nice, clean and comfortable. The bed in the master bedroom was a little to firm for me but still comfortable. It has a very nice view of the pool area and the gulf. The only draw back is, no elevator. Not to much of a big deal for my wife and I but a bit of an issue for my parents who are in their 70's. Other then that I would highly recommend this unit and Patience, would not even consider working with anyone else. - Tom F., Methuen, MA

Seashell, seashell, where art thou?

A great week but with a day of long overdue rain and then the shells appeared. Didn't get a Junonia this time but lots of lacy Murex, Apples, Angel Wings, and, yes, even Wentletraps if you were looking for minis like we do. We left most of what we found behind for others to share since we've been coming down for 30+ years. - Jack C., Sparta, NJ

405 Sandpiper Sanibel

The unit was comfortable, and accurately represented by the description and photos, and the location is great. The stairs should not be a problem unless carrying heavy suitcases or limited mobility. The owners were gracious, the property managers were easy to work with and the island is lovely and we enjoy it every time. The ability to use the excellent bikes and beach chairs were a great plus! - Anonymous, Cincinnati, OH

Great Condo / Great Experience!!!!

We rented unit 405 from Christine and Dom Carillo, and we could not have been happier with the accommodations! The condo complex is in a great location for the beach, and for exploring all of the bike trails on Sanibel! Our unit included 4 great bikes, our family literally put in about 100 miles over a 9 day stay! There are so many places to bike and see on the island! Our unit was very well stocked with all necessary cooking utensils, and anything you could possibly need to make meals in the condo! The unit has covered parking, so you don't have to bake your car in the Florida sun the entire time you are visiting, big plus for us. The unit has a storage area near the parking, that had a beach cart, chairs, beach toys,etc...this is also where the bikes are stored,,Very convenient! We had stayed at the Sanibel many years in the past, the amenities were getting fewer, while costs were rising, so glad we decided to check elsewhere for this trip to the island! We fully intend to contact Christine and Dom for our next trip to the island! - Brian P., Evansville, IN

Great stay on Sanibel

We had a great week on Sanibel and enjoyed our accommodations very much. The pool, tennis court and shuffleboard are great activities and the property was clean and well maintained. Our condo was a great place to stay and had everything we needed including a nice and well equipped kitchen, bikes and beach gear to use. And the beach was easily accessible and not crowded. Great view! We will recommend this to others. - Anonymous, Cincinnati, OH

Exceeded our expectations for our family vacay!

Our family of 4 have vacationed in Florida several times. We have gone to Destin the last few vacations but it seems too many people are in on the secret of Destin...too much traffic, too many buildings, and not enough seclusion. This condo in Sanibel was exactly what we were looking for. We loved the LACK of high-rises, Wal-marts, and miniature golf. The location of the condo was perfect - just a few steps to the beach and not on a busy road. The unit itself was great - perfect size and well furnished. The fact that the storage closet contained everything we needed at the beach was a big load off of worrying about having the proper provisions. Having bikes that we were able to use was fantastic. We used them everyday. The bike trails all over the island were hills, little traffic, and generous well paved trails made riding a pleasure. We will definitely be coming back to the island and, very likely, back to this unit at Sandpiper Beach! Thank you for sharing your beachfront home! - David E., Lees Summit, MO

Peace & Quiet

We traveled down from the Tampa area for a week long vacation with our teenage daughter and to get married on the beach. If you're looking for a private, well maintained property with a great swimming pool, beautiful sunrise views of the coast and the be able to hear the waves coming in...this is the place. The condo was tastefully beach-décor decorated with comfortable bedding, plenty of seating, and nice beds. We liked that the bedrooms were on opposite sides of the condo for some privacy and that the master opened up to the screened in porch. The owners supplied everything that you would need for the week in linens, sheets, dishes, etc. It was comfortable and made it a relaxing trip. We thought we'd spend a day or two trying to pick the perfect beach location for the intimate sunrise wedding ceremony, but we didn't have to look further than right in front of the place. Incredible private-feel beach! Our ceremony (and pictures) turned out better than ever imagined. If I could make any recommendations, it would be just to upgrade the very old kitchen appliances and remodel the 70's bathrooms. They were functional and served the purpose, but could use an update. Also, the hike up from the parking garage to the 2nd floor wasn't ideal dragging up luggage, but it wasn't terrible. The garage itself and storage closet was a nice benefit. The property was well maintained with shuffle board and tennis courts. The pool was very clean and welcoming coming back from the beach. The whole property was quite, laid back and made us really enjoy our vacation. Would highly recommend and would come back! - Kristen M., Oldsmar, FL

Sandpiper #405

We enjoyed this property. The master bedroom and screened porch were perfect to see the gulf, pool and garden, and the sunrise. The kitchen had all necessary pots, pans, dishes, glasses and accessories.

You don't want to be out driving between 4 and 6 pm since the traffic is almost at a standstill.

The beach is loaded with shells. We had to walk the beach wearing shoes/sandals. You can walk long distances on this beach which is basically flat ( no problem with having to walk on a slant like some beaches ).

The tennis court was adequate and right next to this unit. - Jerome A., New York City, NY

Great location, beautiful grounds

Very quiet location on a busy island. Boardwalk from property to beach. Grounds are beautifully maintained as is pool. Unit 405 was satisfactorily maintained. Nice large kitchen for a family that likes to have meals at "home". Bikes were in good shape and we used them to explore the many bike trails on Sanibel. A little problem with cleanliness when we arrived it was clear that the screened porch had not bee vacuumed. We also had problems cleaning up in the kitchen because the hot water was not hot enough to remove grease from stove top and pans. We actually heated water on the stove to use for doing dishes and cleaning up after dinner. - Anonymous, Madison, WI

A Relaxing Break

This is my second stay at this condo which is comfortably furnished and with great views of the beach and pool exactly as per the web site. Cable TV and DVD players are in the lounge and bedrooms and Internet access is available. The owners make access to their storage shed available and there are bikes and beach equipment available in there. The only minor gripe is the lack of an elevator means lugging suitcases up 4 flights of stairs but the effort is well worth it. I spent most days lazing around in the mornings and reading/swimming on the beach in the afternoons. I have been coming to Sanibel since 1989 and some of my favourite restaurants have long disappeared like McT's and the old fish cabin just off the causeway but Timbers is back to its best after a rough spell, Doc Fords has moved opposite Bailey's with its eclectic menus, The Jacaranda is still very good and Rosie's is a great little place to eat. I definitely recommend this condo to anyone wanting to relax and enjoy this little piece of paradise. - David K., Holmes Chapel, Cheshire

Three weeks in Sanibel

When we checked out I left a review in the office which you perhaps overlooked. Once again, our stay was very good, great location, clean though lacking basic cleaning supplies, staff very helpful. The objective we had was to the out-of-date TV set in the living room, and the bedroom TV that needed a new remote, which your man Peter recommended and you quickly supplied. Kitchen well supplied with pots and pans but a covered microwave dish would be nice. - Anonymous, Orono, ME
