About The Area

The Southern Gulf Coast of Florida offers beautiful beaches and excellent weather. Unlike the Atlantic Ocean, the Gulf is typically warm, calm, and inviting. The barrier island stretches from Clearwater Beach all the way down to St. Pete Beach, an 18-mile stretch of the most beautiful Gulf beaches you’ll find.

When Hurricane Ian destroyed the house we intended to vacation at on Sanibel Island, we scrambled to find an alternative and were pleased to have found this property. The property was as described. The layout was functional, with ensuite bathrooms and well-placed pocket doors to partition the "suites" from the rest of the condo. The bedrooms were a generous in size and provided space to get away from the crowd when needed. We enjoyed the fluffy towels and crisp linens and appreciated the beach towels provided, which were also quite plush. The kitchen was functional and well-supplied - drip and Keurig coffee makers, for example, and many storage containers for leftovers (something we don't typically find) and decently sharp knives. The wrap-around balcony provided a great view of the ocean, and the table provided an excellent location for coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening. The beach access is easy, and the beach is broad, clean, and very nice. At least during our stay, it was not at all crowded. Everything we might want from a Florida beach! The chairs, umbrellas, bikes (and helmets), and paddle boards (and life jackets) added to our enjoyment. The property is also conveniently located near several good restaurants, a coffee shop, and a convenience store immediately across the street, and parks for the kids a few blocks away. Check-in couldn't have been more straightforward, with clear instructions and an electronic kiosk on the wall, which also provided helpful information such as the wifi network name and password. We did have a question a quick question that the kiosk didn't answer, and the host was able to help us out in minutes. We were traveling with an infant and asked the host if there might be a pack-and-play and high chair available, so we didn't have to lug our along, and they did. On the day of our arrival, another guest was using these items, and the host when out of their way to obtain both items for our use. We appreciated that great hospitality. We very much enjoyed our stay, and this property will be on our shortlist next time we travel to Florida.

This place is amazing! It was perfect for our family vacation. The beach wasn’t too crowded and walking from the lobby to the pool or beach wasn’t far at all! We will keep this place on our list to book again. You won’t be disappointed if you book this rental!
