“Nice Option on the San Carlos Bay Side of Sanibel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2011

After many years of staying in beach condos on Sanibel Island, we decided to give Mariner Pointe on the bay side a try. So glad that we did...this is an older complex, but many of the units (not all) have been very nicely renovated. Two pools, two tennis courts, grills, shuffleboard...all well maintained as are the buildings in general. Bayfront units provide a wonderful view of boats entering / leaving the Sanibel Marina as well as lots of entertaining pelicans and other birds along with a pair of frequent visitor dolphins. "No license" fishing from the private dock is permitted. Perhaps not the best location for younger families who want to be right ON the beach, but there is a deeded beach access for Mariner Pointe approximately one mile from the complex, easily reached by bicycling on the paved pathways. No elevators, but first floor units provide direct walk out and stairs to the second floor units aren't so difficult to navigate. All-in-all, a really nice option for a home base on Sanibel Island that is also somewhat less expensive than beachfront properties
