“Picturesque views from gulf-front condo”

We recently stayed in E-201 during our week-long trip to Sanibel Island and loved every minute of it! The two-bedroom (plus den) condo was perfect for our family of four adults. We had plenty of room with the master bedroom king size bed, second bedroom with a queen and double, and “den” area, which closes off from the living area with accordion doors and has a very comfy (!) pull out sofa. No spring or bars in your back with this one!

The condo is direct gulf-front and has amazing views of the beach and pool. It is just steps from both. The location could not be more convenience; any time we needed a drink or wanted to grab a snack, we just ran up to the condo from the pool. With the wrap-around lanai, you never feel like you’re “missing out” on time outdoors because it is all right there to enjoy. The patio furniture on the lanai is very nice as well.

The kitchen was well-stocked with essentials: plates, cups, mugs, silverware, pots and pans, etc. The basic paper products are supplied through VIP Realty, but I’d definitely recommend picking up extra paper towels, toilet paper and tissues on your way in. Two powder laundry detergent packets are also supplied, along with a few dishwasher tabs. We picked up laundry soap for $2 at Publix on the way over from the airport for added convenience, along with some plastic cups for out by the pool/beach. As a side note, the ice-maker works very well in this unit. We bought bags of ice for backup, but really didn’t need to.

Bath towels are included; depending on how many people you have, I’d plan on having to launder them at least once during your stay. Washer/Dryers are right in the building (toward the middle) so bring some quarters with you (no change machines). Hangers were also supplied.

There’s a closet right in the front hall, which we did not discover until halfway through the week, filled with beach chairs, umbrellas, sand toys and more! Also the lower cabinet just inside the “den” has games and puzzles, which we also utilized!

It was glorious leaving the doors to the lanai open every night and falling asleep to the sound of the waves. We will absolutely rent from Ellen and Harris again.

A few “Island” tips:
- Our favorite on-island restaurant is the Island Cow! A vast menu with something to please everyone and extremely friendly service, PLUS $1.99 “draft of the day” beer!
- Turtles tiki bar at the Sundial main pool has happy hour from 3-5pm everyday. Worth stopping for a tropical pina colada to get on “island time.”
- If you’re looking to rent bikes, call up Finnimore’s instead of Billy’s Bikes. You’ll save a bundle and they deliver.
- If you’re traveling to the island from May though October, turn off your lights at night or close the blinds! It’s turtle nesting season and we can all help by doing our part to ensure their safety.

“This condo was everything we wanted...comfortable, clean, and close to the beach.”
Reviewed 2 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The condo was situated perfectly facing the gulf, and the screened porch was a fantastic way to begin and end our day! The condo was equipped with everything we needed, and we would definitely plan a return visit.

“Beautiful decor and ocean view, but no washer/dryer in unit”
Reviewed 11 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

The condo was very clean, decor beautiful, view spectacular. We visit Sanibel 1 - 2 times a year for the past few years and each time have stayed somewhere different. Over the years Sanibel has been a relaxing, serene, beautiful place for us to get away. More of a retirement, less partying, play area, more of a quiet beauty. This time we found it to be noisy, and found the beaches trashed. I voiced my concern to several business owners and they were concerned until realizing it was a holiday weekend when more families come. I had never stayed on a holiday and will probably avoid it in the future. But there is no reason for them to trash the beaches. My husband, daughter and I picked up paper, plastics, beer bottles which were thrown in the brush, straws, juice packs and more. They need to take their trash with them and dispose it in the trash. It concerns me that younger people may trash the Island. The washer, dryer and elevator was 1/2 way down the building complex which made it a chore for towels and any other laundry. I think this is inconvenient and a problem for or anyone with a disability, or alittle older.

My five girlfriends and I stayed at this fabulous condo right on the beach, the first weekend in March to celebrate my 50th birthday. It was clean, comfortable, and had a beautiful view of the beach from two sides since it is the corner unit. We're talking about renting it again next year - best vacation I've had in years. It was everything we expected and more!
