Why Bill Schepler chose Sanibel
Sanibel Island is in close proximity to our home and such a great feeling to cross the causeway to enjoy the beautiful Island. Something about Sanibel is loved by all. We have the best rates and try to accommodate arrival and departure times. Personal checks are accepted and a small deposit will hold your dates.
What makes this Condo unique
Miles of Bike paths and walking the beach, but mostly relaxation. Our free bikes, 10 to choose from including children bikes and a tricycle! Our garage is loaded w/beach toys and accessories, beach chairs, coolers, lounge chairs, umbrellas, frisbees!
100% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date. 50% refund for cancellations more than 14 days before check-in date.
Great Beach Location
If you want easy beach access - this is the place!
If you are super picky and OCD about cleanliness- you may be turned off. We weren’t looking for a high class stay as we had 4 kids with us and planned on spending most of our time outdoors.
Pool was really nice!
Great property & fabulous location
First time vacationing to Sanibel. We looked a long while for property in a great location, which we found! This property has everything you need, great location at the beach, friendly neighbors and pool.
Enjoyed our stay at the condo! Great location, garage, bikes and beach gear a plus! Great communication with the owner. Could use a cookie sheet and the ice maker to work. Would definitely stay at this property again and would recommend to others!
Peaceful, relaxing vacation for my family of 4. Nice area, not too busy. Just steps away from the beach. It was nice having the garage full of beach items to use. We collected tons of shells in the ocean, after a storm the night before. My kids suggest a new net to collect shells, the one provided obviously has had tons of use. We had texted Bill with a few questions, and he got right back to us. Thank you, and definately looking forward to staying here again in the future.
Sanibel is beautiful
Having bikes available for free was a definite plus as Sanibel has loads of bike trails and the cheapest for rent are $30/week for each bike. Having the use of beach chairs; umbrellas and a canopy was wonderful. There was an book with a welcome letter; information on restaurants and attractions. That being said; we loved Sanibel but if we return we probably would stay elsewhere for around the same price. The reasons being: (1)These condos are older; and the one we stayed in had a musty smell. When we told this to the owner he said that the maid kept air fresheners in there.....Based on that answer, we chose not to voice any other of our concerns. My husband checked the air filter and it looked like it needed changing; that may have helped the smell some. (2) The condo was not that clean. The tub faucet looked like it had soap scum all over it; the dishwasher was grungy where the cleaner goes; the receptacle cover in the master bedroom was broken almost a third off and we noticed several spider webs around. (3) The glasses and dishes were well-used. Several coffee cups had chips. (4) A pan to warm up leftover pizza in the oven would be nice (5) The beach chairs were furnished but they were old and in disrepair. We were able to find 2 that worked alright though. This condo is rented independently and not supported by the on-site office. The washer/dryer is not located in the condo. The garage is nice to have but was a little tight to turn into. There were 2 outdoor grills but they weren't in great shape but that was fine because the amount of restaurants was amazing so we didn't cook anyway. The only departure instructions that we had were to empty the trash (which we did) and leave the keys and garage remote on the bar and the door unlocked (which we did). We left the towels in the tub as this is what we've done in the past when renting condos. To sum it up, we loved the island; just not the place we stayed so much.
Very clean property and conveniently located to the beach. All amenities needed for our stay were provided. Make sure to bring quarters if you plan on doing laundry as the washer and dryer are not inside the condo, but on the property.
Kite surfing and wind surfing is popular along the causeway and Lighthouse beach. Becoming more popular is the kayak and paddleboard uses.
