Pointe Santo, Sanibel Island Unit A-4

I go to Sanibel Island often, as I live in Orlando and it's about a 4 hour drive from my home. Typically I stay in a hotel however this time I'm taking several family members. I needed a 3 bed 2 bath condo and wanted direct access to the ocean. I've rented a condo in the Pointe Santo complex and have rented unit A-4. Is there anyone out there who's stayed in that unit and can tell me if I've made a mistake. Thanks in advance.

I went online to Royal Shell and looked at the condo. It looks like a really nice updated unit.

Pointe Santo is a nice family complex on a nice stretch of the beach near a grocery store to quickly pick up items. Bike path out front across from it as well.

I'd give it a thumbs up!

All I can say is we didnt stay in that unit but were at Pointe Santo and really liked it. I guess the only thing I worried about is i had a 4 yr old and there is an alligator in the pond. We did enjoy watching him but at times I got a bit paranoid. I would stay there again..:)

I think the alligator has passed away - But that doen't mean another one hasn't taken up residence by now.

I'm travelling for our 25 year anniversary so I haven't been keeping up with TA but I thought I would add that alligators are a possibility anywhere in Florida where there is fresh water. Officials will remove any that appear threatening.

That said, our resident alligator has gone and we haven't seen anyone over the past year or more.

3 years ago, we stayed in the 3 bedroom opposite of A4 (E4?) and absolutely loved it! The layout of the condo was nice and there is nothing to describe how wonderful it is to open your patio and to be literally steps away from the beach. Some of our best memories are waking up with the kids at sunrise and looking for seashells while they were still in their pj's. I am sure you will absolutely love your choice!
