Unit was clean and inviting. Master bath very nicely done. 2nd bath could use some updating on the tub/shower. Towel bar fell off door first day, could... More

I have never stayed in a condo that included so much. Beach chairs, beach umbrellas, nets, beach towels. Everything was included for us to use. The condo was very clean. The kitchen was equipped nicely. The king bed slept wonderful. It was a delightful week.

D37 was a really nice unit that we would recommend and possibly stay at again. Everything had been recently updated in the past couple years, so it's definitely one of the nicer units to stay at Pointe Santo. We loved that there was a storage room with beach chairs, umbrella, buckets and shovels, kick boards, etc. Our 2 and 6... More

Recently stayed in D42 for a week. The unit itself is amazing, nicely updated and modern - doesn't scream 1970 like the exterior of the complex. Well equipped kitchen, and nice bedding and towels. The complex itself is also 5 stars. Don't be scared off by the late 70's look. Everything is well maintained, and there is definitely a sense... More

Thank you for taking the time to write about your recent stay at Pointe Santo. Like most properties on Sanibel, Pointe Santo was indeed built in the 70's. However, we do indeed take pride in maintaining our grounds and buildings. The buildings were recently painted and we continually upgrade our grounds to keep the complex looking fresh and new. We're... More

The unit is great and the location is great. Very family friendly but not crawling with kids either. The prices at stores are very reasonable. Beach is nice. Pool is just so-so. I found the people that stay here very friendly as well. My ONLY problem was the internet connection. If you plan on doing ANY work, forget it. I'm... More

Thank you for taking the time to write. We're sorry to hear of your frustrations with the wifi signal at Pointe Santo as we rarely receive complaints. However, the association will be undertaking a very large internet and fiber optic upgrade early this fall. This will enable guests to download and stream content quickly and effortlessly.

An excellent vacation rental. The condo was clean, tastefully decorated in cool pastel Sanibel theme. Kitchen fully stocked, one could prepare and serve a gourmet meal. Very quiet, relaxing, could not have asked for a nicer place. Reserved parking was right outside the unit, which we greatly appreciated and there was guest parking available as well. Owner was very attentive... More

Pointe Santos is simply awesome! It is beautiful and very well maintained. Even though there were people around it seemed very quiet and relaxing. We were on the fourth floor and had a beautiful view. It's not too far (about 1/2 mile or so) from a lot of the shops and restaurants which we loved. We rented bikes for the... More

Whilst staying on Sanibel we visited Pointe Santo where we have previously stayed a number of times more than 10 years ago. It has not changed and the landscape and lagoon still look immaculately maintained. The Clubhouse where ’Sandy’ used to entertain our children and make shell animals, is still in use. The BBQ’s are still available for free use... More
