Guestbook comments from the owner

From our Guestbook:

Thank you so much for the wonderful week we enjoyed at your "home away from home"! The view was spectacular! Being able to walk on the beach all day was great! This week was certainly a "stress release" that we both needed. We had a good time bike riding too. "402 Condo" has everything anyone would want or need! Thanks again for your beautiful condo and allowing us to enjoy it.

Relax and Enjoy!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful well-eqipped condo. Meticulously maintained grounds. Great for relaxing and getting away.

The beach is amazing and perfect for long walks, shell hunting, and sunset cocktails. We checked out the surrounding beaches and none were better.

The heated pool is a delight for children, and you can sit on your balcony and watch them play in the water. The unit had plenty of beach toys for use at the beach or in the pool.

Shop for grocerys before you enter the island - the local grocers are over priced and the quality of meats and fresh food is poor. If you eat out, try the Island Cow, the Blue Giraffe and Matzaluna Italian. Reasonably priced, varied menus, kid-friendly and lots of food.

The area attractions will be satisfying to a nature-lover, but didn't cut it for the adventure seeker. Also, parking at most attractions on the island is a hassle.

We recommend this vacation spot for those who want to get away and enjoy the beach, without spending alot of time sightseeing. That exactly what we wanted to do, and this gem of a unit fit the bill!!

Excellent! Extemely clean, comfortable, quiet

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect, exactly as described and shown. Sheryl, the owner, was informative and quick to respond. I appreciate Sheryl being willing to share such a great place! Pool is really well maintained. A one minute walk to the beach, beautiful water view from the condo. We had a fantastic time - could not have hoped for a better location or condo.

Absolutely amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo looks exactly like the pictures! Beautiful! We spent a week in March with 2 teenagers. They stayed in the second bedroom and it was more than enough room. The master bedroom was great, the bed was extremely comfortable. The master bath and 2nd bath were very nice. The kitchen was very well equiped. The lanai was amazing every morning for coffee. The lanai over looks the pool, with the beach a short walk. The private beach access was a huge plus! The sea shells were amazing!

The only issue we had was the fact that my hubby messed up the tv on accident. I contacted Sheryl the owner and she and her son responded right away. Turns out, all my hubby needed to do was read the very convenient directions Sheryl left on the bedroom dresser and viola! The tv was fixed!

Sanibel Island is a very relaxing vacation. We didn’t take advantage of the bikes in the storage unit, because we are primarily pool and sun people. But we did use the beach chairs and added some sand castle building supplies to the closet.

All in all, this was one of the very best vacation my family has ever had. I highly recommend Sandpiper 402! You will not be disappointed!

We loved the condo, grounds and proximity to a lovely beach

  • 5 of 5

We liked the condo very much. It was very clean, decorated with updated furniture and decor. The kitchen was modern with great appliances including a regular and keurig coffee maker.

The bathrooms were modern and well equipped with towels, soap, tissues and toilet paper.

The bedrooms were nicely decorated with comfortable beds.

The lanai had a comfortable table and chairs as well as a lounge chair and was all screened in.

We appreciated all the nice ceiling fans and extra touches like dvd's, books and games.

The grounds were well kept. The pool was clean and maintained. We enjoyed playing pickleball on the tennis court which had pickleball lines painted on.

The condo was very quiet and just a short walk to a lovely beach. The bike trail was also easily accessible right out the main driveway.

We will definitely stay here again.

The check in and out procedure with the management company was very easy and quick-it was a drive thru .
