About the Property
We have spared no expense in remodeling our Sand Pointe unit. Color, style, comfort, & quality: all with a seaside feel, were the design elements that were most important to us as we remodeled our ocean facing unit in January 2020.
Step inside our bright and airy unit with its vaulted ceiling and be met with beautiful travertine floors, wood-look tile floors, and carpet the color of the sea. Take in the striking seaside blues, greens, and neutrals of the walls and furnishings. Please note: only the top floor units in our Building #2 at Sand Pointe have vaulted ceilings.
Relax and listen to the waves as you settle onto our comfy living room couch and love seat. Sit in the super swivel chair, which allows you to enjoy our fabulous ocean view or turn to enjoy TV and conversation.
Enjoy making meals in our large, open, designer kitchen with custom cabinetry, stunning cambria countertops, and quality stainless appliances. We've also included two coffee makers(Keurig & Coffee mate drip) as well as an electric kettle for tea. Take a seat at the kitchen bar, sip a cocktail, watch the cook, or use your laptop with our complimentary wifi.
Indulge yourself in our beautiful designer baths with their custom, frameless, all-glass shower walls. Enjoy spa- quality showers in our master bath with its dual shower heads, one of which is a 'rainshower' head. All Kohler products were used throughout our unit.
Enjoy a restful night's sleep on our premium pillow top mattresses with ceiling fans in both bedrooms. Both bedrooms are decorated with premium linens and quilts in the beautiful colors and designs of the sea.
Watch your favorite TV show in either bedroom on 32" flatscreens or on the 49" HDTV flatscreen in the living room with hundreds of cable channels. Bring your Amazon Fire Stick and plug into the extra HDMI ports on all TV's.
Have breakfast every morning on our lanai with its breathtaking view facing the ocean or have cocktails there in the late afternoon. Relax in the comfy lanai chairs with ottomans and read a good book or just take in the view! Our lanai has TWO ceiling fans for your comfort.
Whether you are grandparents enjoying the winter months, a couple on your honeymoon or anniversary, best friends on a vacation getaway,or a family spending a wonderful week on Sanibel making memories to last a lifetime, enjoy our seaside home. Kick your shoes off, watch the sunset on the beach in front of Sand Pointe, listen to the waves outside your window, relax, and enjoy!!
Sanibel Island always makes the list of Best Vacation Ever!! Miles of shell tossed beaches,
abundant wildlife and wildlife refuge, bike trails, fabulous restaurants, great shopping in fine specialty shops. Once you visit, you will return again and again. Located off the coast of Southwest Florida, I often think of Sanibel Island as the "Nantucket" of Southwest Florida.

About the owner: We are longtime owners at Sand Pointe. We've enjoyed countless wonderful times on Sanibel with family and friends over the years. Our grandchildren are now enjoying all that is special about Sanibel! Sanibel is a wonderful family vacation spot and Sand Pointe is a small (45 units) complex with large lanais, under building parking, and the pool and beach are a short walk from every unit.
Staying at Sand Pointe, you will feel as if it is your "home away from home!"
Cindy & Mike Karlsberg
Why this property? Our unit was completely updated in January 2020! We have quality furnishings and a fabulous view! We encourage our guests to enjoy our beachfront home as if it is their own! That is probably why we have guests return again and again!

Nicely decorated in pleasing blues and accent colors, with a brand new, well-stocked kitchen and beautifully remodeled bathrooms with walk-in showers. The view of the gulf is just as lovely - and accessible - as in the photos; we spent many relaxing hours drinking coffee (or later, wine!) on the screened balcony, enjoying the gulf. A perfect beach destination!

Great Condo - Great Location
We spent 2 weeks at the condo and had a wonderful vacation. The location of the condo is perfect. It is close to shopping (food & clothing) as well as restaurants. The condo is decorated well and has everything that you could possibly need. Additionally, the unit has everything needed for a relaxing day at the beach or pool including beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers, etc. The condo is only a short walk to the pool, which was clean and well maintained. The view from the lanai is great. A great place for a relaxing vacation.

Thanks, Ted, for the great review! I’m so glad you two enjoyed yourselves. You two were the perfect guests and are welcome back anytime. Stay well, Cindy
Gorgeous Condo!! Perfect Location!!!
This was our second time staying in this unit and it was perfect.....again! We spent two weeks and it was a great vacation! The unit is super clean and up-to-date with the best view in the complex. I could spend hours sitting on the enormous lanai staring at that view....and I did! Both bathrooms are beautifully remodeled with a dual shower head in the master bath. The kitchen was well equipped and the unit's furniture was very comfortable. The location is perfect being mid-island, just minutes to everything you could ever need. The pool area was very clean and chairs/tables spaced out for social distancing. It's a very short walk to the beach and the unit provides chairs, beach toys, noodles, a cooler.....anything you would need for a lazy day at the beach. Working with Cindy on the rental was super easy - she is very responsive and made the process simple. Looking forward to spending another vacation at Sand Pointe!

Won't Stay Anywhere Else On Sanibel Island
If you want a relaxing vacation with great views, a wonderfully decorated condo, a lanai that is wonderful to relax on, this is your condo! We have stayed here for 3 years now with our fourth year already booked. The condo has everything you will need including beach chairs and umbrellas. The kitchen and bathrooms have been totally updated and are a pleasure to use. The beds are great but enough already with the boring stuff. If you book this condo, the view is something else. You can hear the beach from the lanai. The walk to the beach is easy and there is always plenty of room for everyone on the beach. That's another thing about Sanibel you never meet a stranger. Everyone is really friendly. And then there's the shelling, it addicting but we have alot of fun looking for that perfect shell. The restaurants are fantastic. We go the first week in June and we always manage to catch the sea turtles laying their eggs! I should add that Cindy the owner is very attentive and takes care of anything you may need during your stay!

Carol,Thanks so much for taking the time to review my condo and your Sanibel experience. You and Randy are longtime valued return guests that are the bedrock of my rental base. It’s always a pleasure working with you two! Your honest description of your “Sanibel Experience” helps new visitors decide to choose Sanibel for their next vacation.Thanks again, Cindy
Perfect Location to relax and unwind
We have been visiting Sanibel for over 30 years and this is the best condo we have ever stayed at. Quiet, West Gulf Drive location, central to most shops, restaurants and nature areas, and uncrowded beaches. As soon as you walk in the door, you are greeted by a top floor, unobstructed gulf view. Kitchen is brand new, and the new sliding doors open to the lanai, which lets the sound of the ocean in, and keep bugs out. Great rain-shower shower head in the master bath, with new fixtures. Complex is steps away from beach access, and comes with an in-ground pool for guest use. We have stayed here the last 5 trips and look forward to it every year.

Thanks, Kelly for your 5 star review! I really appreciate you taking the time to describe my condo. You and your husband are valued repeat guests and are welcome back anytime!Cindy
Great condo with excellent views and facilities
Booking process with Cindy was easy and quick despite us being in the UK. Condo is clean, home from home with everything you could possibly need. Third floor on top so no footsteps above and a great view of the ocean. Nice comfy queen bed with a lovely en suite shower room. Beach towels, chairs and parasol provided which is a great bonus. Hope to return soon! Our favourite bar restaurant is George and Wendy’s Sanibel Grill nr Baileys store. Good beer selection, cocktails and good food! Top tip - discount coupons in the local free magazines outside lots of the stores!
