A great place to switch off for 2 weeks

We had been at White Sands before, in #15, and really liked it because it is small - only 14 units. The units are very spacious and generally well-maintained. The kitchen and bathrooms in #32 are slightly tired and there are no blackout curtains in the living room (sorry, sea turtles...) but otherwise this was a comfortable unit with great views from the third floor. We've been coming to Sanibel in late April for many years now and love it because it is quiet at that time of year. It is a beautiful island, a great place to recharge your batteries and we are definitely planning to come back. Sadly we heard during our stay in #32 that it would not be available in the same weeks next year, otherwise we would have booked again straight away. The same thing happened last year when we stayed in #15 - another very nice unit. There are clearly more people who have discovered this lovely resort!

Always A Great Time Here

We have been staying in this unit for the last 13 years. The folks at Select are great and the owner will usually call to make sure everything is ok as well. No matter where we travel, Sanibel is always the place we must go every year. - John S., Saint Simons Island, GA

Fabulous

We have stayed in White Sands a number of times and love it for its location and the small number of condos giving it a very personal feel. This is the first time we have stayed in 32 and loved re one or two difficulties with one of he appliances but Select Vacations and the owners themselves couldn't do enough to get things resolved. Great customer experience, thank you. - Anonymous, Wakefield, West Yorkshire

It was the best!!!

From the time we picked up the keys at the management office where the gracious staff gave us all the necessary information, to opening the door to the condo, it was all perfect. The condo was immaculate, bright and cheerful, and well appointed. There was a pool cabana belonging to the condo that was equipped with beach chairs and pool toys. Great vacation! - Anonymous, West Bloomfield, MI

Super Clean

A week of quiet at a small condo complex, only 14 units but with a beachside pool. Unit 32 is a very clean unit. We have stayed at 6 different units in 2 small complexes over 20 years, this is by far the best as far as cleanliness and view. Newer living room furniture and also newer master bed. Some updating needed in baths and kitchen and carpet, but overall the cleanliness of the unit was a higher priority for us. Select Vacation Properties was great to work with as the management company. No issues at all. Will definitely be back!! - Anonymous, Minnetonka, MN

Happy (Second) Honeymooners

Our unit was squeaky clean and in good working order. Our only concern was a furnace/ac filter overdue for a change and it was taken care of promptly. We appreciate the privacy of the pool on the gulf side of the building instead of the driveway side like other places that we saw. Shopping and restaurants are literally minutes away so when you need a DQ banana split for lunch, you can have one. Conch Chowder, Grouper tacos, and Mile High Pie from the Fish House will be highlights of your visit. We also appreciate the residents' hard work toward preservation of the natural gifts the island offers. We're already planning our next visit! - Anonymous, Wauseon, OH

July 2015 Vacation

We had a great vacation in White Sands 32. It is our second year staying two weeks at this condo. The condo is perfect for families as it has plenty of space and a well equipped kitchen. The cabana by the pool was a wonderful place to store gear, take a break from the sun, and use as our home base for swimming and walking on the beach.

Select vacations was extremely helpful to us. We had an issue with one of the appliances and they had it fixed within a couple of hours. In addition, the staff assisted us with getting forms filled in and notarized for our kid's school. - Steve H., Palm Bay, FL

We return to this property for a reason....

If you are looking for a great island/beach experience, this location is the best fit. It is on the beach and has a pool. The building only has 14 units, so it does not get crowded like many of the McCondo's on the island. This particular unit has a pool side cabana with a bathroom, which is a real bonus. You won't have to drag your beach stuff back inside the unit every day. It is also close enough to everything you would need on the island and away from the high traffic areas. - Paul S., Jacksonville, Fl

Wonderful. A small hitch with tv operation which was addressed immediately.
Electrical outlets ( upper option) not working. Items would not stay plugged in.
Did not mention to rental agency. Minor inconvenience.
Property was extremely well stocked with cookware, coffee maker, blender, utensils. Simply wonderful. - Patricia K., Maineville, Ohio

White Sands #32

We had a great experience. We had a booked a condo through another agency and the unit had maintenance problems. We found a unit in White Sands where we stay for two weeks in the winter.

The staff at Select Vacation Properties were very helpful and easy to work with.

The unit was great, very clean and well decorated. We also appreciated the way that the unit was furnished. The cookware, plates, utensils, towels, beach chairs, etc. were very high quality. Often the way that vacation condos are furnished leave a lot to be desired.

We also appreciated access to the cabana in the unit for the time we spent at the beach and in the pool.

I would definitely recommend the unit and the management company. - Mark W., Arlington Heights, IL

White Sands #32 Top of the Line

Have been going to Sanybel for 20+ years. Staying at the White Sands #32 80% of the time.
It's smaller than most,but very suited for my wife and I. The view from the VERY LARGE Lanai is unbeatable, as we stay on the Lanai 98% of the time,when not on the Beach. After staying at several different Condo's we end up coming back to White Sand's #32. - Kenneth J., Arcanum, Ohio

White Sands #32 is the best unit at White Sands.

White Sands location, and small size are ideal for people wanting a quiet relaxing experience. Unit 32 is very clean, and being on the top floor has the best view compared to the lower floors. We have been coming to Sanibel since 1981, and have been in many places on the island. We finally settled on unit 32 at White Sands in the early 90s, and have been "coming home" to it ever since. - Anonymous, Wauseon, OH

Fun on the Beach

Sanibel is a lovely place to vacation and this property is well-located and maintained. We love to bird, bike, swim and enjoy the beach and this is easy from this location. This is a 14 unit building with several resident owners. Therefore it is relatively quiet.
We enjoy the Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge particularly at low tide (check the refuge web site for the tides there). Restaurants we enjoy include Sweet Melissa's for a grand night out, Doc Ford's, Grandma Dot's for a comfortable bike ride and the Lighthouse Café for a hearty breakfast. The Sunday Farmer's Market near the Library is a worthwhile Sunday morning trip, and the Library is a good resource for children and adults. - Lois D., Greenville, De
