My wife and I, together with her sister and husband, very much enjoyed our five-day stay in Joanne's condo on Sanibel. We found that for us, her condo has all the comforts of home. The kitchen, although not spacious, was well furnished for our needs. The bedrooms and living/dining room area were very comfortable. The bathrooms were quite nice, especially the great shower in the master bathroom.
The location of the condo on Sanibel could not have been more perfect unless, perhaps, it was beachfront, which it is not. (I estimate that it is about a 1/3 mile walk to the beach.) The condo was well furnished with beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrella and an ice chest, together with an almost new cart which made it easy to haul everything to the beach. The condo complex also has a nice pool which is long enough to swim laps if you are so inclined.
A great selection of restaurants are nearby, as is the J.N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge. The condo complex is very near the Bailey Tract portion of the refuge. With great bike trails on the island, we recommend renting bikes that are available there at the condo complex ($53 for two bikes for threes days). The bikes make it very convenient to tour the refuge, ride to the beach or make a quick trip to the store if, like us, you prefer to leave your car at home.
We highly recommend walking and biking around the island, especially the Bailey Tract, to enjoy watching its variety of wildlife -- birds, rabbits, turtles, snakes, iguana and alligators.
My favorite day during our stay started with an early morning walk on the beach with my wife, followed by kayaking on the north side of the island, then lunch at a great seafood restaurant. After lunch we rode bikes around the refuge and then headed to the beach around 4 p.m. I later returned by bike to the condo complex to swim laps and then retrieve some refreshments for us to enjoy on the beach while we watched a beautiful sunset. Life can't get much better than this.
We wish to thank Joanne for her hospitality and for sharing her wonderful condo with us.
We had a wonderful time at Joanne's place on Sanibel. It's ideally located on the island as far as getting around is concerned, and the staff at the condo were very helpful and friendly. During our stay there were a few times we called Joanne to ask her about something and she responded immediately. The condo itself was clean and nicely decorated. Highly recommended!
The apartment was nicely furnished and contained everything we would have expected. Couldn't get the TV to work but that may have been because we weren't used to American TVs . If we had been really bothered could have asked for help but good to do without TV for a week! Aircon a bit noisy but very necessary! The pool was very nice and the area around it had plenty of chairs and loungers.
The condo was well located, close to the beach & amenities. The living room, bedrooms & bathrooms were well furnished and well cleaned. We had a few issues with the fittings and cleanliness in the kitchen which were reported to the owner on arrival.
The facilities at the complex were very good and overall we enjoyed our stay at this accommodation.
It has been a very positive experience. The apartment was very clean and organized, it fully met the description I read on line. The surroundings are beautiful and the beach five minutes away. This apartment is an excellent choice.
Joanne made us feel very welcome and did not need to make any contact as everything was in place.
About the Host, Joanne
I am a college professor who loves the outdoors, travelling, and vacationing in beautiful places. The Sanibel condo was purchased in 2009. The condo is well appointed with all the amenities you need for your stay. I recently acquired the Boothbay Harbor cottage which is currently in clean, but pre-renovation condition. The cottage is situated on an acre of land close to the town with a giant backyard, paths, and woods.
