About the property


IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU CHECK THE AVAILABILITY CALENDAR BEFORE ONLINE BOOKING. CALL OR TEXT MIKE WITH ANY QUESTIONS. 4 NIGHT MINIMUM STAY *****SATURDAY TO SATURDAY STAY NOT REQUIRED****SUN, SEA,, SAND AND SHELLS, SHORT WALK ON THE BOARDWALK!! Enjoy all the comforts of home while on vacation in our luxurious 1,200 sq ft, 2 Bed/2 Bath, TOP FLOOR, Direct Gulf Front condo. When you arrive, a luggage cart and grocery cart are provided and the elevator is a few steps from your doorway. 304 has a spacious modern kitchen with granite counter tops, double stainless sink, spray handle faucet, automatic jar opener, side by side refrigerator and glass top electric stove and the dining area is fully equipped. The living room has an extra large, soft, comfy, leather swivel rocker-recliner, where you can alternate with a swivel from watching the pelicans dive for fish and dolphins frolicking, or watching a huge 50 inch LG Smart HDTV with a Blu-ray DVD, or just curling up and reading a book which soon turns into a nap while listening to the rhythm of the waves. The sofas are comfortable and covered in a beautiful beach fabric.

When it is time for the beach, grab a super-large plush beach towel, take the elevator to the ground floor, get a beach chair and umbrella from the rack and walk 62 feet on the boardwalk to the soft white sand covered with beautiful sea shells as far as the eye can see!. After a day of 'fun in the sun' at the beach, you'll look forward to a peaceful night's sleep, as the master suite has a king-sized bed with 'Consumers Reports' #1 rated 'Simmon's Beautyrest World Class Series' mattress. The master suite has large windows facing the Gulf allowing you to lay in bed while watching and listening to the waves rolling to shore and vacationers acquiring the 'Sanibel Stoop' while collecting sea shells. The master bedroom offers a sliding glass door to the screened porch. There is also an extra-large walk-in closet. Both master and guest suites have modern, clean, bright adjoining bathrooms complete with beautiful vanities with double sinks and granite counter tops and raised comfort-height toilets. Enjoy convenience, comfort, style and views. Also provided is a washer and dryer inside the condo. After a day at the beach, or beautiful heated pool, you can enjoy an evening game of tennis on the only lighted tennis courts on the island. Horseshoes and shuffleboard are also available.

Many guests have been surprised by how quiet the pool area is, even during the peak season, probably because the complex is small with only 21 units. The pool area is a great place to swim, lounge or read a book and even has WiFi available.. This is a non-smoking apartment.

The 3rd and top floor location of 304 provides fantastic direct Gulf Front views while listening to the relaxing sounds of the Gulf of Mexico, lightly breaking waves, seagulls, and gentle breezes. Watch the sunrise from the master bedroom, or be an early riser and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea and watching the sunrise from your screened porch. FREE 'NETFLIX' movies and FREE 'PANDORA' Stereo, which enables you to select YOUR OWN type of music and artist, is provided. Also, take advantage of the FREE WiFi. 32 inch Flat screen TV's and Blu-Ray DVD are available in the master and guest bedrooms. For guests bringing babies or toddlers, use of a baby crib, Grayco Pack N Play and a Grayco Duo Diner LX Highchair, are available WITHOUT CHARGE. Use of my Grandchildren' HUGE cart of beach toys is only available to the Pelicans Roost 304 VRBO guest children WITHOUT CHARGE. The apartment is handicap accessible providing raised comfort height toilets and a walker is available if needed. Toiletries, laundry soap and dishwasher soap are provided.

Golf is nearby with a public course, 'Beachview' and 'Shellpoint,' right off the island. On the island there are 15 miles of bike paths with bicycle rental available nearby and bike racks under the building. There are deep sea fishing charters available at the nearby Sanibel Marina.


Conveniently located at 605 Donax Street, Pelicans Roost is located just five minutes from the causeway and within walking distance of the Sanibel Lighthouse, dining, shopping, deep sea fishing, kayaking, jet skis, and world-famous shelling. Highly responsive, friendly, on-site management will ensure your needs are met in a timely fashion and with a smile. Pelicans Roost is a small private complex with only 21 units, and sits on 3.5 beautifully landscaped acres.

Sanibel Island takes you back in time to the 1950's with no traffic signals and no fast food restaurants. The tallest building is not any taller than the tallest palm tree at three stories, and two thirds of the island is a wildlife refuge. It is truly 'paradise!' FROMMER guidebook has rated Sanibel Island as the #1 travel destination in the world in 2012, above destinations like Bali and Paris.

Here's your chance to stay in one of the best vacation rental values on Sanibel Island. This condo is furnished the way you would furnish one - with all the amenities you could ask for. The perfect place for your next vacation.

Why Mike Kazacos chose Sanibel

Sanibel Island is truly Paradise that is very different than other travel destination because it is so pristine, not commercialized, and shells on the beach as far as the eye can see.

Nice, comfortable.. close to the beach with chairs and umbrellas to use.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! The view from our balcony was beautiful! The condo was exactly how it was described. It was clean and had everything we needed with plenty of space. The beach was so close making it easy to go back and forth between the beach and the condo. There were chairs, umbrellas, and sand toys available for use at the beach. My granddaughter enjoyed the pool in the evening. Everyone was nice, friendly, and helpful. We will definitely be returning next summer!

Wonderful Beach Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Mike's unit at Pelican's Roost last April. We are a family of 5 (with young children) and we felt at home in the condo, and loved being so close to the beautiful beach. We had everything we needed and Mike was very easy to deal with and everything went smoothly, from booking to check-in and departure. Pelican's Roost is a quiet and friendly place to stay, and the beach is so amazing. The kids liked using the pool, too. We spent a lot of time down at the beach. We saw dolphins from the beach and also went on a dolphin watching tour. There are lots of restaurants on Sanibel, and it was great to have the kitchen in the condo to cook some meals, too. I've been meaning to write a review since we were there and now we are all wishing we were going back again soon. We will definitely be back at some point and won't hesitate to stay here again. Thank you!

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

This was an all around wonderful vacation rental. From my first contact with Mike to my arrival I could not of ask for more communication. Mike even sent me his Sanibel favorites and recommendations for the area before I arrived. The unit itself was very well equipped. Unlike a couple of units I have stayed this had nice cookware and everything we needed to cook and not eat out as often. I loved the nice TV in the living room. I did have a problem with the internet but like at home it just needed rebooted after yet another storm had gone over the area. My favorite part was the easy way of getting our key. I hated waiting in long lines at the other rental agencies in the past. You won't be disappointed in renting this unit. Thank you Mike, we will be back!
