“Great time in Shorewood condo”
Reviewed 7 January 2006

We had a great time at Shorewood 2C on Sanibel in October. Large, comfortable unit on the gulf with pool and tennis courts, 3 bedrooms, fully equiped with everything we wanted. Found it at ---- the pictures don't even do it justice! There were even bikes available at the condo. We were 6 people and very comfortable. Saw an osprey from the pool. Saw alligators at Ding Darling. Found good shells. Found a few no-see-ums too (at dusk).

If you are looking for a superb vacation retreat, look no further. Shorewood is a small complex, with 13 units, and many are owner occupied. Gulf view is not just a marketing phrase, the front units ( buildings A & B ) have full view of the Gulf. You are going to be looking a bit east of due south and, on a clear day can see down to Naples and beyond. Swimming pool is nice but modest size, but that is not what you come for. Come for one of the best beaches in all of Florida. Wildlife is plentiful, esp the birds. Expect to see osprey soaring overhead, pelicans flying in formation, terns diving for fish and many shorebirds Almost half the island is a wildlife sanctuary (Ding Darling) We have often spotted dolphins swimming by in the afternoons.Golf courses are nearby, but we don?t play, preferring to relax and go for our walks on the beach. Tennis court for those interested.Grounds are well maintained, the various units have different levels of d?cor, but all are very nice. Most are large, with at least 3 bedrooms, 3 full baths. Floor plans are open and spacious. Cable TV, VCR?s ( which we do not use, but maybe for rainy days ), full kitchens, laundry in each unit. With weekly rental available, these are prime units for family gatherings.The Gulf side wall to the living room is sliding doors, opening onto a screened porch or Lani ? open these up in the morning and let the sunshine in.Travel is easy, with SWFlorida Regional Airport about 45 min away ? Fort Meyers.There are many good restaurants in the area. From casual to fine. Few, if any, have a dress code. Matter of fact, the entire island seems casual, shorts and a shirt seem to work everywhere. Watch for traffic on the main road, Periwinkle, in season, so plan your shopping trips for early or late in the day. But then we come for vacation and relaxation.We have been coming to Sanible for a couple of decades and always look forward to our time in the sun to recharge ourselves.Shorewood is one of the prime complexes on the island. We use Sanibel One for booking (*************) and prefer unit B-1 ( bottom floor gulf front )
