Fantastic Stay

Review by Avree S.
We were a family of six, including teens and grandparents that stayed in the condo for 2 weeks. We only have positive things to say and have recommended the condo to our friends who are interested in staying there next year. The condo was very large with a big kitchen that we used almost every day. We have stayed at rentals that have condiments, spices etc. that are available when you arrive but just as an FYI this one only has S&P. The views are beautiful and the pics are very accurate. Having the beach side cabana with all of the chairs and umbrella was convenient and made it that much easier not having to lug supplies very far. We did need a couple of simple things, such as light bulbs replaced and a cabinet door fixed and they were very helpful and fast to repair them. Everyone we encountered was friendly and professional. For visitors on a budget we recommend stopping at a grocery in Ft. Meyers as the mark up on groceries on the Island is near double the price. We had a wonderful time and my family is already talking about a return trip.

Manager Response:
Thanks so much! It was a pleasure having you - as always! We hope to see you again next year!

Great location and layout.

Gorgeous views. Ample space, with excellent ratio of bedrooms to bathrooms. Well-stocked kitchen with plenty of room for multiple cooks. The extra cabana is very helpful as a waystation to the beach. We had three adults and two children and there was ample space and amenities for every taste. It’s now our favorite place to stay on Sanibel.

Home Away from Home

Great rental for an extended family. We had three individual couples staying in the unit, with each having their own bedroom! There was plenty of living space that no one felt crowded or in someone's way. The large kitchen allowed us to cook some meals for all of us which was nice not to have to go out all the time.

Sanibel Surfside 231

Review by JANET J.
Great location. Convenient to the beach. Hosted dinners for a family reunion there and there was lots of seating and space. Nice large kitchen! Would have liked an empty cupboard for groceries! Beach cabana very convenient! Lots of chairs, toys, umbrellas to use. that was a great perk! I would definitely recommend this condo to others!!!

Hi Janet, thank you so much for your review! We are so happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay! We hope you will stay with us again in the future!

Great family getaway

Loved the property & the closeness to the beach. Also enjoyed the fact that a cabana was available for our use. The unit was very clean & well maintained,( had a few light bulbs missing, had a light out over the dining table, a stopper missing in 1 bathroom sink) ,nothing major. Loved the open floor plan & a nice sized kitchen so that several of us could cook together Lots of games available..Had more than enough beach & bath towels. We even enjoyed the pool & the shuffleboard court! Also nice that we had 2 covered parking spots, we did get our exercise hauling things to & from the car! Excellent customer service from beginning to end. We enjoyed the Sunday farmers market , the Darling wildlife park & had a great meal at Cips & some huge fish tacos at Doc Ford's Rum Bar & Grill in Captiva where we did a porpoise watching excursion that was great for our17 mo old grandson. Would certainly recommend this area to anyone!

Awesome Beach Experience

Review by Kimberly S.
Our condo that we had originally booked was under construction and we were given this condo as a substitute choice. Let me just say, staying at this condo made our vacation even better!!! What an amazing place. So spacious and accommodating, with a breathtaking view of the beach! When we walked into this condo we were so excited and pleased. It provided plenty of room and amenities. We enjoyed having a family game night with one of the many games provided or doing some of the puzzles while listening to music on the stereo and "fitting in" doing some laundry with the full size washer & dryer. The cabana near the beach equipped with a small fridge, shower, toilet and beach gear was so helpful. This was a great place to store our things without needing to carry it back to the condo. One word sums our experience staying at this condo "Amazing". Thank you so much, we will definitely be back!!! We also want to give a shout out to the friendly grounds keeper gentleman, he was always out early in the morning working hard making the place look GREAT! Thank you!

Perfect!

Review by Melissa R.
Condo was absolutely perfect! Beautifully decorated extra large rooms. View was spectacular, Had one rainy day during our stay, but Pinocchio's ice cream and all of the games that were available in the unit provided several hours of family entertainment. I highly recommend this unit and will definitely add this to our must return list.

Celebrating a 65th Wedding Anniversary

Review by Diane K.
Our family was here to celebrate our Mom and Dad's 65th wedding Anniversary. The unit was very spacious and well equipped. The view from the living space and two of the bedrooms was beautiful. The unit was very clean and the property was very well maintained. There were ample beach chairs, umbrellas and towels available. We all enjoyed the beach, shelling, and the pool. Surf side is located on a beautiful section of the beach and very convenient to shopping and restaurants. We all had a memorable week at Surfside #231!

Birthday Week Getaway

Review by Mary T.
Very spacious in a nice area with beach view. Sanibel is a great place to visit- shells, great restaurants, friendly people. Be prepared to buy trash bags, dishwasher detergent if you do much cooking and laundry detergent if you do much laundry. Linens and mattress could use replacements.
4 out of 5 stars
Manager Response:
Sanibel Island is indeed a great place to visit and we hope you enjoyed celebrating your birthday week in Sanibel Surfside #231! I apologize that you felt you did not have adequate supplies provided for your stay but the starter kit items are just to get you up and running to allow you time to make a grocery run in order to buy all the essentials to last the week(s). We've also been busy in recently replacing all the mattresses (2 King & 2 Queen) throughout the condo and we've upgraded linens and comforters as needed due to normal wear and tear that affects them. We sincerely appreciate you taking the time to provide us the feedback necessary to make yours and other future renters stays in the condo the best experiences possible. We look forward to the opportunity of working together again!

Great Family Vacation

Review by Aleece M.
The property manager was extremely helpful. Everything was in perfect order regarding our check-in and the description of the property was accurate. The property was the perfect location, well-stocked, and the right size for our family. It was nice having the living area separate from the bedrooms. This condo is huge!

Felt like home

Review by Holly W.
We enjoyed our stay here, especially since we got to miss Hurricane Matthew back home. We loved how it felt like a home, plenty of room to spread out & relax. The grills & pool were very nice, too. The shopping carts to help us unload were VERY helpful! Thank you, Sanibel Vacations for a great experience!

Manager Response:
Thank you so much, Holly! It was our absolute pleasure to have you and your family in our property! We greatly appreciate your kind feedback and look forward to your next trip to Sanibel.

Beautiful!!

The condo was spacious and beautiful. The only minor issue we had was the Wifi kept cutting out but with the closeness of the beach, who needs it.

Manager Response:
Kevin, Thanks for the heads up on the Wifi issue so that we can be aware of that in the future. Otherwise, we are so glad to hear you enjoyed yourselves and the beach and all the simple beauties that Sanibel has to offer! Come back and see us soon!

August 2016

Sanibel Surfside is a very large three bedroom condo with large living area and beautiful views. The unit could use some remodling and the mattresses were not as comfortable. Overall, a nice property.
5 out of 5 stars
Manager Response:
Thank you for your feedback, Lori. We hope that the extra-large condo and great gulf views proved to be an added bonus to your vacation. We've taken your concerns about the mattresses into account and were able to recently replace the 2 queen beds. We look forward to the opportunity of seeing you and your family back again soon!

August Vacation

Nice view of the beach and pool. Very spacious. Comfy bedding. Ceiling fans need to be replaced and ice machine in the fridge was not working when we arrived. Bathroom floors need a good cleaning. Too many nic nacs. I would suggest adding a chain lock up high on the doors for families with small children.
4 out of 5 stars
Manager Response:
Jennifer, thank you for your notes and we appreciate the feedback and will take all of it into consideration. As this unit books about 50 weeks a year, that certainly takes a toll on the tile and we apologize that the floors were reflecting that wear and tear. We were able to perform our deep clean and clean the tile and grout in all bathrooms following your remarks. We otherwise hope you had an enjoyable vacation and we look forward to seeing you back soon!

Great vacation

Great big condo. Very clean and has everything you will need. Pool and beach were terrific. Our family had a great stay.

Sanibel Island for 3 couples

Review by Robin G.
Stayed here and enjoyed the proximity to the beach and grocery store. Very nice to have the storage space on the ground level and it had plenty of beach chairs and umbrellas. Condo was clean. No broom or mop and that would have been handy to sweep the tile floors as sand tends to follow you inside. Would recommend property.

Awesome Vacation

Review by Melissa W.
Surfside Sunset is exactly as the pictures show. It's a beautiful condo and so spacious. We loved being on the top floor with such a great view of the ocean. We had no problems with anything in the unit. Everything was neat and clean. Plenty of beach towels. Only one hair dryer so we had to pass it around, but wasn't an issue. The property was quiet and the pool was great. We never heard any noise except on Friday which was mowing day and that lasted all day, but it is a beautifully kept property, so that's understandable. The beach is full of such beautiful shells and the island is great. I highly recommend this unit to anyone wanting a large 3 bedroom condo.

Great Family Week

Review by Lois J.
Four cousins met from all over USA at this wonderful condo. The condo was in a great, quiet location yet we could walk to to restaurants and Tiki Bars along the beach. It was one of the largest condos we have stayed in as the owner bought 2 condos in this complex and made them into one. It is perfect for a large group or family. I would not hesitate to stay here again!

Sanibel Surfside 231

Review by Eugene D.
This unit is very large. It has a very nice view of the beach. The 3 bedrooms are large and also the 3 bathrooms however the bathrooms could use some maintenance and the beds could use some new mattresses. Kitchen area is large also- fairly well stocked--most items are older. We bought 3 frying pans- their non-stick ones were all scratched up. The toaster did not work. The living and dining areas are very nice.

Annual trip to Florida with friends!

Review by Barb K.
The is our third year to stay at this rental with friends. We love the size of the unit, the location, the pool and the view. One complaint would be the height of the chairs around the table by the window with the view. They are very low, which makes it awkward to have a meal. They need chairs that are compatible with the table. Also, some of the mattresses need replacing. Two of the bathrooms are definitely in need of updating. But for the most part, we like this condo and plan to come back again.
4 out of 5 stars
Manager Response:
Thank you for your valued feedback. We love to learn how to help better your experience for next year! You'll be happy to know that the 2 king beds have recently been replaced. We apologize that the furniture has since been changed or moved around since the sunset photos were taken of the condo which included a table by the windows. The one table that is in there now does seat the max occupancy of 6 people, although now it's just set back a bit in the dining room area. We look forward to your return next year and for many more to come!

(3) Husband & Wives aged 50's had a great time at this condo. View was great.Advertised picture is exactly what you see. We grilled and cooked in on two nights. We each had our own bathroom in our bedrooms. Beach had many assorted shells on it which was nice. Local restaurants were very good. We had a very good relaxing week, Thanks!

Manager Response:
Thank you for your comments and we're excited to let you know that we've been making adjustments and upgrades to the unit over the past few months. All mattresses in all 3 bedrooms have since been replaced as well as the kitchen appliances. We apologize that the ice maker was not in proper working order for your stay - The only reason it was not fixed immediately was because a brand new refrigerator was on the list of things that would soon be purchased. We hope to address painting and minor work the bathrooms this summer if time allows. We truly appreciate the feedback and hope to make your next stay the best yet! See you soon!

Large beautiful condo in great location with fabulous ocean views

Review by Ron H.
This is our second year in a row to stay in this large beautiful condo. There is plenty of room to entertain with large families or friends or get away when you need some peace and quiet. The property and condo is very well maintained. The condo has excellent views from the third floor which is the top floor. Two covered parking spots and a beach side cabana with bathroom made it great for storing bikes and paddle boards which we rented from Rob and was waiting on us when we arrived. The beachside cabana was very handy to store all our beach stuff plus the bathroom was very convenient for the kids. Rob and Charlie do a great job making sure everything is setup for you when you arrive and are easy to contact anytime during your stay if you need anything at all. The condo is located on Donax so you are a short bike ride to everything Sanibel has to offer. This condo is hard to rent so if you get the opportunity to enjoy it I would highly recommend it. You wont be disappointed. Rent the bikes and paddle boards. They are a must. Timbers and Doc Fords are great restaurants but you cant beat the conch chowder at the Lazy Flamingo.

Perfect Condo for a Bigger Group

Review by Thomas M.
Surfside Sunset is the perfect Condo for three couples or a larger family. All of the condos at the complex are 2 bedroom units with the exception of this unit which is douple in size. The result: tons of space. The three bedrooms each have their own bath and all the bedrooms are large. The living space is huge as is the kitchen.The views are spectacular. The unit was built in the 70's and it does show its age. That said, it was spotless on arrival and the condo is comfotable and has everything you need. The complex is great. Nice pool. The unit has a dedicated covered parking spot. Ron and his team where great. He set up a 4 hour fishing trip which was tons of fun. It was a great week and we would do it all over in a heartbeat.

The Dead Pest Society Girls Trip

Review by Tonya W.
Fabulous !!!

Surfside Condo With a Beautiful View

What a welcomed surprise and delight it was when our family spent three weeks at this spacious Surfside condo!! The view of the beach was spectacular from this second floor condo. The short walking distance to the beach became a daily ritual. The facilities included a cabana with sand toys, inflatables, and umbrellas allowing us to enjoy the beach and the pool on site. Surfside is a small complex with well manicured grounds. The large kitchen, the spacious living area, and utility room with washer and dryer made our vacation a home away from home. Rob and Charlie were gracious hosts giving us guidance and assuring us a pleasant and memorable Sanibel experience. They were a wonder source of information regarding fishing, biking, kayaking, and cruise excursions. We look forward to a return visit.

A Lovely Stay!!!

Review by Sharon C.
I can't begin to tell you how nice a time we had last week in Sanibel. The weather was absolutely perfect! We were looking for total relaxation with family and we found it. This is not our first visit to Sanibel, but I think we will plan to stay at Surfside Sunset condo in the future. First of all, this condo is a HUGE. You can have kids playing games and watching TV in the family room, while having total quiet and seclusion in the bedrooms at the other end of the unit. And that worked for the adults in the evening as well...with the kids sound asleep at the other end of the condo.The location is right on the gulf. The views in the picture do not lie...that is the view from the family room and two of the bedrooms. The condo has all the modern conveniences, including a smart TV, WiFi, a wonderfully stocked kitchen. It's nice being able to cook and not have to run out for dinner every night. There is easy beach access as well as a cabana with chairs, umbrellas and beach supplies. There are community grills on the property...we had no problems getting access to them.Of course, my kids loved the pool and the shuffleboard. Rob was simply fantastic in getting us our sports rentals...we loved the paddleboarding and the biking. The condo is clean and well-maintained. Simply put, we had a lovely stay and look forward to returning in the future.I really cannot say enough good things about Of course

Beautiful view and spacious

Review by Beth M.
Our vacation was June 14-21, 2014. This is our second summer in this rental. The view is great! The condo clean. Nice, big kitchen. Three den areas, one with TV. Large round dining table, and a separate table perfect for our puzzles. Bedrooms are separated from the living areas, making nighttime much more pleasant for those who want to sleep -vs- those that want to play all night! Full size washer and dryer are a plus, as are the beach towels that are there for your use. The cabana had lots of extra beach chairs, and they're in good condition. The open expanse of windows makes a storm worthy of watching!

Great space for a larger group with a great ocean view

We had stayed at Sanibel Surfside before and knew we loved the location. This condo was perfect for our group of 6 adults- it could have accommodated a couple more. We cooked several meals in and the well stocked, spacious kitchen was appreciated. As in most rentals, the knives were not great, you may want to bring your own if you plan on cooking much. Rob was very prompt in returning calls, for check in, he met us at the unit with the keys. We rented bikes from Rob and were pleased with them, we rode them all week long. They were newer than others we have rented from other island companies.I would highly recommend this unit and the property management company.

Family Fun in Sanibel!

Review by Kirsten F.
Our family of five, plus a friend, enjoyed our stay at Surfside Sunset! The condo is HUGE with more than enough room for everyone. The kitchen is well-stocked and spacious, the beds are comfortable and the views are gorgeous. The cabana was a nice feature, as well - it was great to have a place to keep all of our beach stuff, as well as a refrigerator and restroom. The Surfside complex is fantastic - beautifully landscaped, well-maintained and as close as you can get to the beach. It's centrally located, as well - it's an easy bike ride to the Lighthouse, Pinocchio's, Schnapper's, Jerry's, Over Easy Cafe, Bailey's and Island Cinema. The Sanibel Vacations team is outstanding! We drove directly to Surfside Sunset where Rob and Charley met us for checkin - it was so nice to skip the hassle of going to a rental office to pick up our key! The bikes we rented from Sanibel Vacations were like new and the guys made sure they were adjusted properly for all of us. We highly recommend Surfside Sunset and Sanibel Vacations - we've already booked again for next year!

The Great View Review

Review by Linda R.
This surfside condo was a great place to have a family get together as well as friends. there are 3 master bedrooms with plenty of room and amenities. The living room area was huge so no one was ever under foot or felt crowded. The view was most spectacular as we could even watch the dolphins travel along the shore. It is all so open and spacious-the pictures do not lie.A great time was had by all and hope to return again in the future.

Sanibel Vacation

The location was perfect and the condo was clean, the facility well maintained and the size perfect for four adults and two toddlers.It is in need of updating. There is peeling wallpaper, furniture is old, linens are older.My biggest problem was the number of breakable items in the condo. We traveled with two toddlers and spent the first couple of hours moving all the figurines and other items up beyond their reach. There were over 200 items in the condo. We need for the children to be safe, but we also were concerned about breakage. I am sure the items had a lot of sentimental value for the owner, but we could have done with 80% less than what was there.

Great View Great Condo

Review by Karen M.
We really enjoyed this condo. The bedrooms were great, so unusual having 3 master bedrooms on the beach. The place was so spacious, nice décor. The view was awesome. We really enjoyed our stay here. Would definitely stay here again. Only thing that would have improved our stay, was if it hadn't rain so much(still made it to the beach everyday), and my mom wouldn't have broke her wrist on the second day.

Fabulous Family Vacation

Review by Patti B.
The views, the convenience, the room - what could have been better? Not a thing, as far as we were concerned. Rob and Tim were a delight to work with and handled the entire transaction quite well. We were well pleased and glad to have found this wonderful condo in which to vacation.
