“Perfect view, location, and beach access - couldn[--]t be better!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Our family could not have been happier at Susie's beautiful beach house. The floor to ceiling windows had breathtaking, unobstructed views of the ocean. On a particularly stormy day during high tides, it actually looked like we were on a ship since the water appeared to be so close. We were even able to watch the sun rise over Ft. Myers from the balcony! The condo appointments were lovely and we immediately felt at home. Since our young children still take long naps and go to bed early, the comfort and views of the condo are important to us, and we were able to relax and enjoy ourselves while our children slept. We hope to return next year!

“Florida in December”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012 for a stay in December 2011

We rented Susie's condo in Dec 2011 for the week preceding Christmas. It was a wonderful vacation. Susie was very accommodating in making sure we had what we need. The condo is right on the beach with views of sunrise and sunset. Will go back again.

“Absolutely the best "close to the beach" condo!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2011 for a stay in September 2011

Gorgeous floor to ceiling windows in the living area make you feel like you're right on the beach! Great updated kitchen and bathrooms, very comfortable beds/pillows, fabulous screened lanai, you just can't ask for anything more. We hope to return to this unit next time we're on Sanibel!

“Best location on Sanibel Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2010 for a stay in September 2010

My wife and I stayed here during the week of September 11 - 18, 2010. We choose this condo after careful research of all available condos, hotels and resorts. Some are more expensive and some less, but none offered the value of a beautifully decorated, two bedroom, two bath condo looking straight out on the Gulf and very close to the beach.

Having never been here before, I was concerned about the unknown, such as would there be a TV in the bedrooms? Would cable TV be the very basic? Would there be sufficient cutlery, glasses and plates? Basic condiments? The answer to all was yes. EVERYTHING you could conceivably need are there. TV in every bedroom and complete cable along with wifi for a computer, if you should carry one with you. We did to check weather and emails.

The waterfront is extraordinary. Large picture windows look straight out on the beach where we saw incredible numbers of every type of seabird imaginable. Several times I saw dolphins playing in the surf, once only a few feet from a couple standing at the water's edge - apparently checking out the people! This is a wildlife lover's dream.

At the time of year we were there, thunderstorms build up almost every day and you can watch the display out over the gulf from the screened-in patio or through the windows in the condo but don't have your lights on because it can disorient the huge turtles that come up on the beach at night to lay their eggs! Of course, as Sanibel Island is known to be one of the top shelling locations in the world, you can walk along just outside your condo for the best selection. After one day with strong surf from a distant storm, many more were uncovered.

Sanibel has many fine restaurants and attractions which can be found with a little research and Tripadvisor.com.

Overall, this is the best value for what you get on the island. We didn't want to leave. We could live there!
