Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Sanibel Island - King's Crown 317

Gulf Front, On Beach, Newly Remodeled, Top Floor, Sleeps 6, 2 Bdrm, 2 Bth

You will absolutely love this newly renovated (completed 8/7/15) large 1,500 square foot direct Gulf front top floor unit and its new surroundings. Enjoy the gorgeous 270 degree view of the ocean from your lanai in the very desirable quiet King’s Crown condominium complex with a large open floor plan and island decor.

The designer kitchen is absolutely stunning and extremely functional. The kitchen boasts stainless steel appliances, beautiful all-wood dark cabinets, luxurious granite countertops, a tumbled marble backsplash and an expansive island. No expense has been spared!

The master bedroom is newly furnished and decorated in a refined yet relaxed theme. Enjoy the large footprint that provides a king size bed and office area. Additionally, the master boasts a luxurious en suite bathroom with double vanities in beautiful dark wood paired with rich granite countertops and an oversized custom tiled walk-in rain shower with glass doors and mother-of-pearl accents.

The guest bedroom and bath is newly furnished and decorated in a relaxed tropical theme. The guest bedroom also offers a large footprint with two twin beds and a sitting area with a twin sofa bed. The guest bath is newly remodeled and equally luxurious with glazed all wood cabinetry paired again with granite countertops and a neatly tiled shower/bath combo.

You will love the conveniently tiled screened entryway with a bench to take off your sandals and rack to hang your beach towels. The unit also offers brand new AC system, interior and exterior doors, trim, crown moldings, plantation shutters, 20x20 tile flooring (entry, hallway, kitchen, dining, lanai and baths) and carpeting (living and bedrooms) throughout!

The tropical-themed living room and dining room furnishings will transport you to a beautiful island oasis on the inside while you enjoy the most amazing direct Gulf-front view of the ocean from the large open floor plan. The living area comfortably seats six with two full size couches (one is a queen sofa bed) as well as two swivel recliners. The brand new seamless glass sliding door walls between the open kitchen/living area and the lanai provide you with expansive floor to ceiling views of the Gulf. Literally nothing separates you from the vast ocean view except for some sand and a few swaying palms. This is the only top floor 1,500 square foot unit available for rent in the King’s Crown complex that offers this incredible 270 degree view. Watch dolphins jumping and hear the waves crashing while relaxing on the new comfortable patio furniture on the large private newly screened lanai. You will never want to leave!

You can also relax on the beach or in the larger than average size heated pool. Because King’s Crown is a medium size complex (54 units), the pool is just a few steps away from your unit and pool chairs are always available. A few more steps on the wooden boardwalk and the expansive white sandy beach will surround you while you are mesmerized by the beautiful crystal blue Gulf. Take advantage of our beach chairs, umbrella, beach towels, and easy to use beach wagon to transport everything you will need for your relaxing afternoon on the beach. An on-site tennis court (tennis racquets provided) is also available for your use.

If you are looking for activities, Sanibel Island has everything one could wish for and King’s Crown is only minutes away from...excellent restaurants, golfing, fishing, boating, shopping, bike paths (22 miles of paved trails), canoes, theatrical productions, the renowned J.N. 'Ding Darling' National Wildlife Refuge & Bird Sanctuary and the Point Ybel Lighthouse.

After your return from a relaxing day, you can enjoy the large flat screen LED SMART HDTV and DVD/BluRay player in the living area or the 32 inch Samsung flat screen LED TVs in each bedroom together with free wireless Internet. You will also find a brand new full size front-loading washer and dryer in the laundry closet as well as a drying rack for your bathing suits.

Whether you are looking for an escape from the winter months, a romantic getaway or an unforgettable family vacation, the possibilities are endless in Sanibel Island and the memory is forever. Sink your toes into the white sand, go shelling, build a sandcastle, charter a fishing expedition or ride your bike along the Gulf shore, then watch the most spectacular sunset from the lanai. So hang the 'Gone To the Beach' sign on your email box to sign out from the everyday and check in to the tranquility of Sanibel Island.

average rating of 4.9 based on 10 reviews

Phenomenal!!! From the moment we walked through the door of the condo....Perfection!!!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Sanibel for the first time ever. We chose KC based on the pictures and the promptness and courteousness of owner Kari. She was always on top of the e-mails prior to our visit as I was deciding what unit to book for myself, my hubby and our 2 grown children and their spouses. We were celebrating many milestones and events in our families life, and chose Sanibel for 10 days for some R and R together. We had more fun than we ever imagined. The condo was perfect for us. Kari checked in daily to see what we needed via e-mail. When she found out the beach wagon and beach towels were missing, she had new ones at the condo within 48 hours...it was unbelievable! The cleanliness, the decor, the kitchen appliances, the ease of it all contributed to a phenomenal stay. There was nothing we needed that we did not have. We ate in for breakfast and lunch, tried 9 different restaurants for dinner each night. Recommend all of them actually. Very favorites were Doc Fords, Blue Giraffe, Matzaluna, Cips, Blue Coyote for appetizers although VERY PRICEY...Don't take your little ones there...and of course, the ice cream shop where they give you ice cream in quantities as big as your head.

We would like to thank Kari for giving our family such a priceless gift in our vacation...perfect condo, perfect view, perfect beach...

Nearly every morning, my husband and I watched the Dolphins swim by as we drank our coffee. The Pelicans fished, we played with the live sand dollars and star fish every day...no keeping of course.

We kayaked through the mangroves, paddle boarded on Captiva, rented bikes for the week so we could get around and live like the locals....

Seriously....Fabulous, Phenomenal and Fantastic.... WE HOPE TO BE BACK SOME DAY.

Thank you very much for sharing your blessings with us Kari...we are grateful.

Owner's Response: Karen and Paul, Thank you for your amazingly detailed review of your stay! I love receiving reviews that demonstrate just how awesome all aspects of a Sanibel vacation can be and your review surely accomplishes that objective. It sounds like you loved Sanibel and were able to spend some wonderful "R and R" time together with your family. It also sounds like you had some wonderful adventures and eating experiences. Thank you also for the kind words about our interactions. I try to make every effort to make our guests stays as enjoyable as possible. I truly appreciate you reaching out to inform me about the beach towels and beach wagon. I am not always immediately aware when items get lost or broken and I clearly want to remedy these instances as soon as possible. I am thrilled that you had a "phenomenal stay" at the condo and I really look forward to welcoming you and your family back to KC317 in the future. Have a wonderful fall. Thank you again! Kari

A Gem at Kings Crown!

  • 5 of 5

We are annual vacationers to Sanibel and always stay at a beach front condo. Without a doubt, this newly renovated unit is one of the best gems we have stayed at to date. Having stayed at Kari's other condo rental in Sand Pointe, we were not hesitant in booking this new unit---actually, we were looking forward to it. Upon arriving at the condo complex and condo unit, we were "wowed" once again. This unit is gorgeously designed, decorated and has exceptional flow. Everything was new and clean and organized. The open floor plan, along with Kari's warm and happy interior decorating, contributed to the shared sense of utter contentness and relaxation. It really was the perfect home base to enjoy a little indoor time during our breaks from the beach, which is only steps away, or from a nice long bike ride. This condo unit delivers on all levels, quiet, space, comfortable beds, quality linens, relaxing and cozy furniture, generous sized master bath, a unique entry area to leave your shows and things, storage locker with beach needs, etc. Also, one cannot leave a review without stating the obvious, the gulf/beach view from the condo unit is one of the best. If you and your family are looking for a special treat and a wonderful experience, look no farther as this unit will not disappoint. Kari, thanks again to your hospitality and having us stay at your wonderful gem. Cheers!

317 is a winner! Clean, tastefully decorated, lovely furnishings, and an outstanding view!

  • 5 of 5

This unit was just lovely. We have rented many, many condos on Sanibel and this one is tops. It has a perfect gulf front view that can't be beat. The beds are very comfortable, the kitchen is modern and well equipped, the baths are nicely done, and there was a bonus pull out sofa in the guest room that came in handy when company arrived. We really appreciated the nicer-than-most furnishings! The complex is very nice and quiet, on West Gulf,our favorite, and has covered parking and an elevator. The owner was very accomodating and just delightful to deal with. We can't wait to rent here again!! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful condo!

Breathtaking views and best condo on island

  • 5 of 5

We have been visiting Sanibel Island every spring break for the past ten years. This is the best condo available on the island. The ocean views are incredible and literally take your breath away. The accommodations are beyond what you would expect. The furniture, appliances, paint colors, decor and overall atmosphere of this unit are truly beyond comparison.

Gorgeous views and top notch condo all the way around

  • 5 of 5

The view from the lanai is truly oceanfront. The beach and lanai were both great places to watch the sunset every night. The remodel of this unit is absolutely wonderful. A wonderfully equipped kitchen with everything you need to eat in. The bed was comfy. The master bath has a great walk-in shower and double corner vanity which makes really good use of the space. There is plenty of seating in the living with very comfortable furniture. And the dining room table has the same oceanfront view of the beach. The closet in the parking area has a great umbrella, chairs and cart to take your things to the beach. Kari is very responsive and great to rent from. This is one of the nicer places we've stayed in all of our VRBO rentals and I would not hesitate to go back.

Owner's Response: Linda, Thank you for your review of your recent two week stay at King's Crown 317. I am glad to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed the Gulf view from the condo and the lanai. The expansive view is truly "gorgeous" and one of the best on the Island. I glad you found the remodel and the furnishings "absolutely wonderful". We spared no expense. During the remodel, a walk in shower and and double vanity in the master bath were a must for my husband and me. I am also glad that you used the "wonderfully equipped" kitchen for eating in and storage unit items for your beach and pool excursions. You are an experienced VRBO vacationer and I am thrilled to know that you "will not hesitate to go back" to KC 317. I look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit to Sanibel. Kari

Best spot on the island

  • 5 of 5

I've been coming to Sanibel for many years, and this is hands down the best place I've stayed. The condo is laid out fantastically, the view is amazing, and everything is super-comfortable. The furniture, appliances, etc, are of a much greater quality than I've come to expect from other rentals as well, and as a pair of adults looking for a "luxury" rental for our honeymoon, this was a really classy place to stay. I noticed Kari was responding to some reviews -- if you remember what kind of pillows you bought for the master bedroom and could tell me, I'd be forever grateful. They were heavenly. :)

The condo association had some really nice touches that made staying there very pleasant and easy. There were a couple of grocery carts and a luggage cart, so if you had a lot to haul it was easy to move around. The covered parking was much appreciated, especially if you've ever lived without it during Florida summers. There's also a little shower area right as you come off the beach, and we used that constantly to get the sand off before going back up to the condo.

We spent a lot of time on the lanai, and I encourage anyone staying to keep an eye out for wildlife even from the comfort of the condo. We watched dolphin pods from there several times, and there seems to be a pair of bald eagles nesting nearby as well, because they were out fishing every day we were there.

We were a little nervous at first in booking, because at the time there were no reviews and the internet reviews for the rental management agency were't incredibly positive... however we had absolutely no problems, and the place was spotless. I mention this only so that if anyone else was hesitant, don't be -- it's a great place, and Kari seemed very comfortable talking to us about our concerns beforehand.

The only thing I can possibly think as a recommendation for improvement would be a ceiling fan on the lanai -- but the second day we found a little plug-in fan in the storage closet that worked out very well.

Owner's Response: Allison and Sean, Thank you for your prompt and detailed review of your stay. It is always a pleasure to see a wonderful 5 star review from an experienced Sanibel vacationer. I am happy to see that you defined King's Crown 317 as a "luxury rental". We want our guests to have a wonderful stay experience so we furnished the condo with high-quality furniture, appliances and fixtures. My favorite thing about the condo is the 270 degree view of the Gulf from the unit and the lanai area. I too could spend hours watching the Gulf and the dolphins. Thanks for your feedback regarding a fan on the lanai. First, I am glad you found the fan in the closet. I considered putting a ceiling fan on the lanai during the renovation; however, it was concerned that it may hang down too low. On my next visit to Sanibel, I will purchase an stand-up oscillating fan for the lanai. Thanks again! In response to your question, I purchased the pillows (hotel luxury king pillows) from Costco. I use the same ones at home. I am sure you can find them at your local Costco. You can't beat them. If you need more detail, please just let me know. Thank you again. I look forward to welcoming you back to KC 317 on your next visit to Sanibel - maybe your first anniversary ;). Kari
