REVIEWS ARE CLEAR! This DOLL of a condo is one of the best values around - and the guest reviews prove it - gorgeous, spacious, high-end with VaVaVoom VIEWS that hypnotize from your 30-foot wide WALL OF GLASS. *** Glass stretches all the way across the main room and dining room in one expansive, uninterrupted view of the Gulf. NO ONE ELSE HAS THIS WIDE of a VIEW! Watch dolphins frolic, pelicans dive-bomb for dinner, and sunsets/sunrises. The 30-foot wide private balcony will immediately become your favorite hang-out for coffee, happy hour, reading a book, and even watching a storm roll in becomes artwork signed directly by our creator, very cool! In addition, you'll have the 8-mile long lagoon directly behind you, giving you views in every direction. This is our second home and we've spared no expense. It's loaded with UPGRADES and FEATURES such as: New 55' wi-fi smart TV and SONOS wi-fi speaker, stream wirelessly from your music library or Pandora, Rdio, or 100K radio stations from around the world ~ Gorgeous teak-root dining table topped with glass (not pictured yet), total conversation piece! ~ granite in kitchen and baths, dual sinks in both full bathrooms ~ fully loaded kitchen incl ice-crushing blender, Keurig, and all you'll need for a gourment meal ~ leather sectionals and high-end furnishings (no grandma's leftovers here!) ~ all FLAT-PANEL TVs, super fast WI-FI internet, nice electronics ~ Simmons Beautyrest Mattresses ~ all 400-thread count linens and plush towels, beautiful artwork, walls painted in soothing Caribbean colors ~ stacking washer/dryer in hallway closet ~ provided beach cart, and rolling cooler gives you an extra hand when going to the beach. BEDDING: King, Queen, twin over twin bunk, max of 6 guests BUT MAX OF FOUR ADULTS. Dining table for 6, plus 5 bar stools right behind it. LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION: 2.5 miles from the Hangout, on a narrow peninsula with the Gulf in front and the 9-mile long Little Lagoon behind us; views out BOTH sides! This is a newer, 18-story building called SANIBEL on West Beach, it has fast elevators and only appx. 108 units in entire building. No fighting for beach space! Just out of the fray of traffic but just 3 - 5 minutes from appx. 25 restaurants, Super-Walmart, the zoo, Waterville water park, etc. Target, movie theatres, outlet mall just a few minutes further. We dare you to compare!More

About the neighbourhood
We are situated on a narrow sliver of land with Gulf in front and 8-mile long Little Lagoon behind us. We are 2.5 miles from the Hwy 59 'T', just before the bridge at the pass connecting Little Lagoon to Gulf. Just out of the fray of traffic, yet 3 minutes back to all the action, restaurants and activities. No fighting for space on the beach when you stay with us! Appx 25 restaurants within a 5-minute drive, plus a super Wal-mart!
Getting around
Bring your bikes (or rent) for easy access to everything for the teens or for the entire family!
