Guestbook comments from the owner:
The condo is located very close to the beach, its a quick walk to the ocean and the view through the balcony is lovely. It's nicely located within Sanibel Island, close to many shops and restaurants.
Cons: The kitchen and various other appliances are outdated. The condo is somewhat small, especially the kitchen.
Additional note: When we arrived, there was a terrible case of red tide happening in the Gulf of Mexico. Many dead fish in the ocean and on the shore, and it was unsafe to enter the ocean. Though it's not the owner's fault, I highly recommend any folks interested in vacationing in Sanibel look up potential beach hazards/red tide status before booking a condo, as few owners will issue refunds for things like red tide.
My husband and I, as well as my sister and her husband, stayed at the Sanddollar condo over the 4th of July holiday week and had a fabulous time.
The moment you walk into the unit, the views of the ocean just call to you. The huge screened in deck/porch is the perfect place for breakfast, for a book, for watching a passing storm, or just listening to the waves. A ceiling fan on the porch makes it super comfortable, even on the hottest days.
Inside we had everything we needed. The kitchen was totally stocked with all the pots, pans and dishes necessary for making a big meal, there was enough room in the living area for everyone to spread out, and the bedrooms were great. Only downside was the mattress in the master has seen better days. The unit also has its own full size washer and dryer, which is super convenient.
Outside, the condo grounds can't be beat. It is a low density complex, so there were never too many folks around. The elevator always seemed to be on our floor when we needed it. Also, the pool is just next to the unit's building and was the perfect place to cool off after a morning at the beach. The grounds also have numerous outdoor showers and hose pipes for rinsing feet and shells.
Finally, the barbecue grills next to the pool were so clean and modern they almost felt brand new. I'm usually one that avoids using community grills, but these were an exception to my typically hard and fast rule!
And I'd be remiss if I didn't mention all the great animals we saw -- rabbits are all over the island, and several seem to live right on the property. There's a beautiful bush in front of the building that attracts gorgeous butterflies of all colors. And adorable lizards roam about, as well.
The beach can't be beat. Never super crowded -- even on the holiday itself. TONS of shells. We saw dolphins and pelicans and all sorts of birds every day.
Just an amazing experience all around. Would recommend this unit to anyone!
Best location. Great condo
I loved my stay here, we were very comfortable. Everything was super clean and updated. I’m pretty picky and I was very happy that I felt comfortable here.
We vacationed during a VERY hot week. When the ocean isn't cool and the pool is even hotter, it was so nice to take a break in Sandollar 202B. The accommodations were perfect for our family of five. Whether we were relaxing on the lanai, cooking up a little lunch or cooling off and watching some tv, we had everything we could have needed! The owner even had beach towels in the condo so we didn't need to bring our own on the plane. If I return to Sanibel (which I sure hope I will), I will be checking to see if Sanddollar 202B is available! On a side note, renting bikes was a lot of fun too but need to make sure it doesn't get dark while you are still out.
Wonderful views. Great location to access all the island amenities.
My family and I enjoyed a beauiful week at this great unit at Sandollar. We have been coming to Sanibel for many years and have stayed at different places. We love staying at Sandollar. It has everything you need. This unit we stayed in was great. It was clean and had everything we could need. Joan was wonderful to deal with and made the whole process very easy. There was no need to contact her about the unit during our stay but she made sure to let us know if we needed anything we could contact her at any time.
This condo is pretty much as advertised in the listing. We just completed a one week stay. I could tell it's been a rental unit for awhile since it is generally well stocked. I found the owner to be very responsive.
There are two reasons I would think this condo would drive a premium over other condos around. First, the view is great - 180 degree unobstructed ocean views. Second, the condo is bigger than most, and really is more of a 3 bedroom 2 bath unit. The unit has a large (I estimate 26' long) porch/lanai that opens to the large master bedroom and living area. It is on the 2nd floor but the building has an elevator, making it easily accessible.
The bathrooms have been refreshed in the past 10 years, as has the kitchen. The kitchen appliances are older but functional. The furnishings have been well cared for too.
We had good luck renting bikes from Finnimores and they will also drop off/pick up. The beach is easy to access and not too crowded. There's a sand bar off the coast so the waves are generally tame in this area with no noticeable currents. It's very quiet and peaceful.
Sanddollar is a meticulously maintained complex with a well behaved renter population (it seemed to generally be families and empty nesters/older couples). It's an older medium density complex and all units have ocean views. We had a great stay and I would definitely recommend it!
