    This one of the better 2 BR units in Pointe Santo. Well maintained, comfortable furnished and good location in the complex, you "feel" the sea when staying there. Our impression...

    Gulf and bayou views from Sanibel condo rentals

    Sanibel Island is a lovely, serene and wildly popular destination surrounded by the clear waters of the Gulf of Mexico. There's no better way to enjoy your vacation than at a private beach villa or luxury condo rental. Amenities include everything from fully equipped kitchens and water view terraces to quaint fireplaces and sleeping lofts.

    Beach play on the island

    You know you're at an old Florida beach, when sandy lanes with helter-skelter grass borders wander past trees bent from years of shouldering coastal winds. And when you're surrounded by water, every member of your family or group will find favorite things to do. Fishing buddies love a day on the water testing their talent for landing the "catch of the day." While toddlers build sandcastles, their older siblings take to snorkeling or scuba diving. Couples roam the soft white sands in search of the Sanibel’s famous seashells - the southern coastal twist scoops seashells from distant places and bestows them on Sanibel's beaches. And after all that sun-filled play, barbequing on your own rental home porch makes the end of the day special.

    From wildlife refuge to historic Sanibel

    The "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge combines nearly 6500 acres of mangroves and marshes with entertaining concessionaire options. You may charter a fishing boat or gather the family on your rented pontoon boat. Kayaks, canoes and bicycles are also available to rent; so you can wander along scenic drives and waterways. Combine your mini tour of Old Town Sanibel and the Sanibel Lighthouse area with a fascinating look at island pioneers at Sanibel Historical Museum and Village. The village buildings date to the late 19th century and include a General Store, Original Schoolhouse, Tea Room and typical island cottage.

    Island-happy chefs make dining an adventure

    Though you’ll undoubtedly enjoy several home-cooked meals at your beach rental, Sanibel and adjacent Captiva Island offer some delicious and scenic dining choices. A local favorite is Mad Hatter Restaurant where tantalizing dishes range from filet with Béarnaise sauce and Phyllo shrimp to exotic salads and warm berry crepes. There’s no shortage of inventive cuisine, and the sunset view over the Gulf makes this a very romantic destination. Just up the road in the quaint Captiva Island village, Sunday brunch at The Keylime Bistro gathers together locals and visitors alike. Festive umbrellas shield outdoor tables, and soft jazz accompanies your island benedicts!

    Privacy and savings make home rentals an excellent choice

    You’ll love private island living with the space you need for your family vacation. Combine home-cooked meals with dining out adventures, and you’ll quickly appreciate the value of vacation rentals.
