This was our first real family vacation, and first time for our 5 year old daughter experiencing the beach/ ocean. We couldn't have chosen a more perfect location!
Monika and Klaus welcomed us with open arms, thoroughly explained the amenities, the area, had everything organized for us so that we could easily navigate Ft. Myers, Sanibel, Captiva, etc. while on our vacation. The condo was incredibly clean, had beautiful views from the patio, and offered most comforts of home. Monika and Klaus were wonderful to work with -- very reasonable, and attentive if we needed them.
Out of everything we did within our 5 day stay, we asked our daughter what she loved the best. The winners were... her bedroom that had a tv in it, and the swimming pool at the condo. Ha!
Our experience with our rental was fantastic. The owners are attentive to the condition and cleanliness of this condo and it showed as soon as we arrived. We were made fully aware of the amenities in the condo and at the resort. It was comfortable and relaxing. The view from the balcony was beautiful. A great place to relax and read with a cup of coffee in the morning. I would certainly recommend this location to anyone. The owners made us feel like family. I look forward to visiting again in the future.
Because of circumstances beyond Monika's control, I wasn't actually able to book this condo. However, Monika was incredibly helpful, upfront, and honest. I wouldn't hesitate to book with her in the future. She really went above and beyond!
This was our second time staying in this condo and it was just as perfect as our first time. The view is fantastic, the welcome that guests receive upon arrival is second to none. We experienced the market place downtown Fort Myers and had the best ribs ever at Los Cabos. The dinner cruise from the Marriot, which is right next door was an evening to remember. I have already recommended this to two friends since we returned a week ago. Monika and Klaus are great, and the welcome package is much appreciated. Looking forward to our return next year.

We spent a fabulous week with our two teenage children in Sanibel Bay View Condo over spring break and can't wait to return. Monika and Klaus add a very personal touch for their guests that is rare and quite unique among home rentals.
Bottom line, the condo was perfect for us in every way. The location was central to Sanibel Island, lots of nearby local restaurants and adjacent to a Marriott hotel. We were able to take advantage of the many hotel amenties, including several restaurants,a spa, bars, swimming pools, water sports rentals, etc. just as if we were guests. The condo itself surprised us in many nice ways. It was decorated very nicely - warm and inviting - and lacked nothing. It was, perhaps, the cleanest, most organized condo I've ever seen. But, not to the extent that you were afraid to "live" in it. Monika and Klaus had thoughtfully provided just about anything you think you might need; plenty of beach towels, beach chairs, sun umbrellas, a cooler, games, and more. We've rented numerous times through home away and VRBO, but never have we stayed in a rental with as many host provided amenities. Indeed, nearly everything you might need to cook simple, minor meals Monika and Klaus have graciously stocked for guests in their kitchen - spices, coffee filters, coffee, olive oil, ketchup, ziplock bags, paper towels and so much more! We have never experienced this with other rentals.
The condo layout was perfect. While the 2nd bedroom is not technically an ensuite, the bathroom is immediately adjoining so it practically was. The living room/dining room was large, open and, best of all, flowed into the screened in lanai (balcony) that provided the most amazing view you could possibly imagine. We spent several nights with the sliding doors widen open, air condition off, and fell asleep to fresh air and the sound of the waves/water below. It was serenity at it's best! And then there were the evening sunsets. You will just have to see them for yourself to believe them!
We are recommending this condo to our friends and family without reservation and look forward to returning ourselves.
Very smooth and profeshional process of booking and checking in. The place is clean, fully equipped and the view is great!
It was a pleasure doing business with Monika.
The condo is lovely, fantastic view with great amenities. Well stocked kitchen, very comfortable bedding and furnishings.
Recommend for 2 couples, plenty of space.
