“A Great Vacation Spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2011

This was my family's first trip to Sanibel Island and Sandalfoot Condominiums. We rented 5D3 - a corner, beachfront unit and couldn't have been more pleased. The view of the Gulf is amazing and we could actually watch the sunrise from the king size bed in the master suite. The staff - office and maintenance - couldn't have been nicer. The complex is convenitently located but very quiet and removed from the busy downtown area. We have traveleled both domestic and international destinations and never been to the same place twice...but we are already planning a return visit to Sanibel and Sandalfoot Condos.

Sanibel is one of our favourite places and we had two lovely weeks in November at Sandalfoot to get some sun before the English winter sets in. We stayed in unit1D3 which is in a great location. It’s beach front on the third floor with fantastic views over the gulf. You can even see the sunrise over the sea in the morning from bed! The condo was very comfortable and was well maintained with everything to make us feel at home. We would highly recommend it.

Third year in a row that we have vacationed in Sanibel and stayed at Sandalfoot. Once again we were not disappointed. Great property and staff, and we just love everything about the island! Some of our favorite things are walking the beach, biking the island, the Sanibel Thriller boat ride, the "free" bird show with Libby @ Periwinkle Park and Campgrounds, breakfast at the Sanibel cafe, and dinner at Doc Ford's. Already can't wait to return next year!

Room Tip: We have stayed in unit 5A3 and just love it!

This is our 4th time in Sanibal, 3rd at this condo complex and we will definately be back. This time we rented unit 2D3 (owned by Carol Bruce) and it is furnished with impeccable taste and has all the amenities; a home away from home.
It has easy access to the beach where our main pastime was the shelling of course.
The island while keeping its pristine image and beautiful history, provides educational (i.e.: shell museum, wildlife sanctuary) and fun activities: dining, shopping, etc...

Room Tip: higher floors (provide better view of the Gulf) in the Gulf front buildings and preferably a 2 bedro...

This was our second trip to Sandalfoot but the first time in late Oct/early Nov (2011). Weather was great in the 80's and we swam each day. As always the grounds and condos were exceptionally clean and well manicured. They were rebuilding the walkway to the beach when we left .They are always updating and keeping everything nice. It is so peaceful there. Just a perfect getaway. Sanibel in itself is wonderful with no large shopping malls, high rise buildings or ton's of traffic.There are great little places to eat, small shops and plenty to do if you like or you can just sit back at the pool or on the beach and relax. I came home with another three bags full of awesome shells. It's hard not to walk the beach each day and not pick up shells!
We discovered Pinocchio's ice cream shop this time and went each day as the ice cream was delicious!
We love Sandalfoot and the east end area of Sanibel and highly recommend staying here. Can't wait to get back to paradise again!

Spent 7 days at Sandalfoot Condos last week. Our unit (2B1) was well maintained and very clean. Had a great time on the island. Pool was warm. People were friendly. Beach was near. Fishing pier was within walking distance and plenty of shells. Would definitely return.

We just returned from 7 days at Sandalfoot Condos. We found everything First Class. Our Unit (5A3) was beachfront,third floor with corner balcony, tastefully decorated and spotless clean. Everything we needed in the kitchen was supplied. Starter kit of garbage bags,toilet paper,tissues,coffee filters, etc was very helpful. Washer and dryer available in our building allowed us to bring our clothes home clean. Quarters for this were available in the office. Sandalfoot office staff (on site) were friendly,helpful and very courteous. We endured two and half days of thunderstorms with tornado warnings. The comfortable condo made this time also enjoyable. Of course, after the storm the shelling was great on the beach. We enjoyed the restaurants and shops on Sanibel and Captiva Islands. We look forward to returning soon and would recommend Sandalfoot Condos to anyone who appreciates a First Class experience.
