We stayed at Pointe Santo unit C3. We stayed with my brother and his family of 5 and our family of 3. We slept well. There was a sleeping space for all of us. Our unit was nicely decorated and close to the beach. The owners of the unit left us towels and beach chairs. There was a washer/dryer inside... More

Very nice condo. Everything was clean inside and out. The beach was wonderful! Would highly recommend this place. It was our first trip to Sanibel Island, and I couldn't believe all the shells on the beach! Would go back in a heart!

Beautiful beach area, crowded but still amazing! Loved the rooftop patio. The condos are impeccably clean, large and have everything you need for a relaxing stay;) The pool is somewhat small for such a large complex, but the beach makes up for this. Parking can be tight for guests.

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
