The unit is fully furnished and offers immediate access to miles of beaches, hiking and biking trails and Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge. For golf,tennis,fishing or shopping enthusiasts there is plenty of action as well.
Located on the first living level of a low density condominium development (3 buildings, 30 units total), our unit offers a direct view of the Gulf of Mexico. Tarpon Beach is a stilted complex with parking underneath each building as well as elevators.
As a convenience to our guests we also offer access to our lower level storage area where we provide 2 adult bikes, beach chairs and beach umbrella. For those needing to stay connected to life back home we offer WiFi internet access free of charge.
Sanibel and Tarpon Beach is our 'home away from home'. A little bit of paradise, we'd like to share with you.

About Ed & Lisa
We are from Wisconsin and started visiting Sanibel Island in 1996. Twelve years later we decided to buy a piece of paradise on Sanibel Island! We hope you decide to enjoy it too while staying at our condo.
Ed & Lisa purchased this Condo in 2008
Why Ed & Lisa chose Sanibel Island
Tarpon Beach Condominiums is a small property with 30 units total spread out over 3 buildings. We looked at other properties along the beach but were attracted to Tarpon Beach because of it's direct access to miles of beach. Be sure to ask how many units are on a property before renting!
What makes this Condo unique
We are in Building #3 which has a direct view to the Gulf. Our pool area almost always has open lounges and often is empty with everyone down at the beach. Parking is always available and restaurants and shopping are a short walk or bike ride away.

Smaller complex allows for less crowd
Ed and Lisa have thought of everything. This was our sixth year in a row but our first in this condo but we will definitely be back. The bikes and all the beach equipment were in great shape. The condo was well stocked. Perfect family vacation. Thanks for sharing your piece of paradise with us.
Thank you for the great feedback! We know how important it is to arrive at your vacation destination and have all the beach gear and bikes in shape and ready for use. And we give all return renters a discount the next time they stay at our property - see you soon!
If a bit of work was done to this property it would merit more than two stars. The master bedroom has an extremely hard bed--so hard that I slept in the guest bedroom. The carpets in both bedrooms are worn. There is a strip of metal across the lanai door entryway that is very easy to trip over. I could smell stale cigarette smoke. There did not appear to be visitor parking. Bathroom mirrors were beginning to turn black on the edges. The lanai floor was uneven, which resulted in puddles forming after a good rain. The master bedroom furnishings seemed dated and had an "up North" feel instead of a Florida/tropical flair. On a positive note, it was very quiet despite being next door to a public access beach.
We are sorry that your stay in our home did not meet your expectations. As our repeat guests know, we make every effort to provide a comfortable, clean & inviting environment for those who share our space and we certainly regret your disappointment. We would like to share that in addition to replacing both the living room & guest room furniture (November 2017), we regularly replace the mattresses including the master bedroom (December, 2017) to help ensure the comfort & positive experience for our many guests. We have reached out to our rental partner, Sanibel Holiday and asked them to check the lanai drainage holes as well as determine if there is additional cleaning required due to rogue smoking (all units are non-smoking).
Thank you for your feedback.

Great place and great location!
Everything was perfect with the place. Location was great and the bikes were a nice bonus. Can’t control the weather, but I’ll happily take cool and sunny over rain anytime.
We are glad you enjoyed your time on Sanibel! Bikes are a perfect way to get around the island and our condo is located right in the middle of the island for easy access to everything.
As advertised !
Very nice property. Wish we had known about the grills.
Very nice property. Not over crowded like other properties we have stayed .
Will def be back
Thank you! One of the great things about the Tarpon Beach Condos is the low density which means plenty of available lounges by the pool, space at the beach, and plenty of parking.
The Association added grills in 2016 and they have been popular with our residents and guests.
We hope to see you again soon!
Great place for family vacation!
We had an excellent vacation. Condo was exactly as described and couldn't have been any better. Quick, easy access to the beach and bike paths. Lots of wildlife EVERYWHERE! Can't wait to come back.
Everything you need & modern, updated unit
This is our second year staying at Ed & Lisa's condo. The unit is updated and well maintained. One of the bonuses is the well stocked beach closet that has beach chairs, umbrellas, sand toys and floats. The unit also has wifi and TVs in both bedrooms and the living room. We love the location, too. Close to Jerry's a great restaurants and the shelling on the beach can't be beat!
Thank you - we love return renters! The central location of Tarpon Beach Condos (but still on the beach) is a real plus for walkers and bikers. Hopefully we can see you again next year!
