“Love Sand Pointe, but....”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

As someone previously mentioned - it's all about which unit you get. This is out 4th time at Sand Pointe (SP) and our first stay in Unit #113. Some owners just love to make their units very warm, cozy and colorful, Others are just very clean and basic (as is #113). The unit had sparse amenities compared to what we were used to w other units we've rented at SP. Let me start with the good: very clean, newer living room furniture, comfortable master bedroom bed, lots of extra towels!! Wish it would have: had a screen door, better utensils, better kitchen ware, a TV in the second bedroom, use of beach chairs, umbrella (we had to rent these at Billy's), cooler, pool toys. Also, this is the first time I had to call the rental agency about some issues in the unit: loose handle on front door, loose cabinet front on trash cabinet, some missing light bulbs in living room and bedroom lamps (I had to purchase bulbs), broken vertical blinds in living room, bedroom fan was un-usable since it was missing a screw and was grinding (ugh). I felt I had to call about these issues since I did not want to be responsible for problems that were there when we arrived. The rental agency was great - they sent someone out within a couple hours and all repairs were made and no questions asked. Overall, it's what you make of it. It's not like we spend a lot of time in the room when we are in Sanibel. The room was clean, basic, color-free - but it served it's purpose and we were grateful to have found a room at SP.

We enjoyed a week at Sand Pointe. We stayed in a third floor unit in the back building that faces straight out at the ocean. We like the vaulted ceilings available with the top floor. We were hesitant to be set back but were pleasantly surprised with the view. The only night we couldn't hear the ocean was our first evening when the bullfrogs in the lagoon were in full chorus. Thankfully they only were loud the first night, don't know if an alligator came along and had some cuisses de grenouille but we enjoyed the sounds of the surf the rest of the week. Our unit had been entirely renovated and was well stocked with beach gear, towels, kitchen utensils and was very clean. We enjoyed a big storm one day with huge winds and rains and the grounds crew had everything clean up and straighten first thing the next morning. A family friendly environment, the pool was just big enough for the kids to play. Plenty of beach area for everyone, parking in the shade under the buildings and bike racks. Sanibel is a very special place and this was a good home base to enjoy the island. Bring or rent bikes it is the best way to get around the island.

Room Tip: Go for the 3rd floor, our unit had vaulted ceilings giving a nice open feel. We used VRBO to find ou...

Sand Pointe unit 117 was a last minute rental for us. I was worried the online pictures wouldn't accurately portray the place, and we had never been to Sanibel before. We were pleasantly surprised at what a perfect place this is!! Condo is clean with many updates! Decor is tasteful. Condo is in the best location.......oceanfront, so you can sit on the screened porch/lanai? And relax, or the steps to go down to parking are right there. Also at the bottom of the steps is the pool, and walkway to the beach. Location is superb! Condo property is very nice, clean and quiet. There seemed to be a good mix of adult couples and families with children. Everyone was very friendly. Pool is small and busy, but no problems getting chairs or swimming. Nice restaurant , The Sand Bar, next door. Lots of shells on the beach, great views on the beach at sunset, and location on the island seems very central. Beach in front was never crowded. Condo itself was had a well stocked kitchen, linens, beach chairs, pool toys, games, movies, books, etc.! Condo sleeps 6, and was very spacious for 4. Highly recommend!!

Room Tip: Unit 117 is ocean view, convenient to pool, parking, and beach access!

The condos are located just past the busy part of the road and beach. There is a good restaurant right next door (SandBar). The quality of the rooms vary a great deal. This was our third time staying here and our condo has not been updated or renovated for some time. However, the previous times we stayed, we had a much better condo that was more up to date. The pool is nice and the beach is beautiful. We will stay here again but be more wary of the room we rent. We noticed that different companies represent the owners and the company we used before had access to better condos. I don't think I can mention the firm here though.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this place! This was our first trip to Sanibel Island, my husband and
I, and our two teenage daughters. My mom stayed here a few years ago and recommended this place for us. It exceeded our expectations. I cannot say enough about this place. Our condo was amazing! It was VERY well equipped, very clean. We had a wonderful view of the beach. Everything is just a short drive away. There are many restaurants to choose from. We ate most dinners out, and breakfast and
lunch in the condo. The only bad thing, is the two grocery stores on the island, Jerry's and Baileys, are a little pricey, but you have to consider where you're at ;) We are already planning our return trip for next year!

We just returned from a wonderful stay on Sanibel Island. #125 is located close to the walk way to the beach and directly over the pool area. That can be a plus or a minus. If you don't enjoy listening to children enjoying the pool area, you might not like the spot. But we found it fun to watch and enjoy. Sand Pointe condos are well taken care of both inside and out. The elevator is centrally located and easy to use. Parking under the building meant a cool car out of the sun. It is close to Bailey's grocery store and Doc Fords for dinner. The beach in front was a wonderful spot for shelling while we where there and wasn't very busy.

The condo included beach chairs and a cooler. There was also the bottom spiral for placing a beach umbrella in the sand. We didn't find that until after purchasing one, which cost as much as the umbrella. We bought an umbrella for $13.00 at Baileys and it was great for the week.

The kitchen was well appointed with everything we needed.

Loved having the screen enclosed balcony. Thought we would be able to see the sunset from there, but in April, to see the sunset, you need to walk out to the beach.

The only negative we had was the floors between condos could use a bit more insulation. The first couple of nights, there was someone in the condo above ours and you could hear their dog's toenails clicking on the floor. Not a real big deal, but woke up the first night thinking rodents in the walls!

Overall we would definitely stay at Sand Point #125 again.
