About the property

Condo, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 2 Sleeps

I have other condos at this location for rent (see VacationRentals #7013890, #7025260, or #7042055). All are non-smoking. Pets are not allowed.

Location! Location! Location! The Shores is located mid-island,

directly across from Publix Super Market! Park your car and ride the

entire length of the island on our local trolley - for only 50

cents! The trolley stops right in front of the building! Plenty of

shopping available, just a few miles away, in either direction, at

Times Square or Villa Santini. Restaurants abound! If you enjoy

shelling, relaxing in the sun, or breath-taking sunsets, this is the

place to be!

The Shores offers beautiful sunrises and sunsets from the ocean

front deck with tiki huts and lounge chairs for your enjoyment. You

are, literally, just a few feet from a gorgeous, white-sand beach

and the beautiful blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico! Grounds are

landscaped with palm trees, seagrapes, amd other tropical foliage.

For your convenience, The Shores has under-building parking, an

elevator, and a coin-operated laundry facility.

If you want the nicest at The Shores, this is the condo for you! It also happens to be the closest to the water (end unit)!

There is a HDTV, Blu-Ray DVD player, and cable w/DVR in the Living Room. Floor-to-ceiling mirrored walls, in both the living/dining and bedroom, reflect splendid views of the ocean. The kitchen is a cook's delight - fully equipped with a side-by-side refrigerator (filtered ice and water through the door), top of the line range/oven, microwave, and dishwasher.

This condo offers lots of amenities not included with most rentals, including free, unlimited, long distance phone service to anywhere in the USA and Canada and its own private WiFi network.

Doesn't get any better than this!

  • 5 of 5

The perfect vacation rental! This is our second visit to Karen’s beautiful condo with many more to follow. It is exactly like the pictures! The condo is located directly on the beach and very clean. Every room has a view of the amazing ocean and beach. The balcony is perfect for watching the dolphins in the morning to ending your day with the beautiful sunsets. Karen has decorated the condo beautifully and has furnished it with everything you could possibly need. There is a coin laundry facility on site and private parking directly under the building with an elevator. Having a Publics grocery directly across the street is an added bonus. The beach deck has lounge chairs to relax in and watch the world go by with the beach just a few feet from the gorgeous beach. Karen is great to work with. Book now you will not be disappointed.

Much Needed Getaway

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I arrived, I knew I had picked the right place. The condo is beautifully furnished - you are RIGHT on the beach. This part of the beach is quiet which is exactly what I wanted. Karen is awesome to work with. Everything that you need is right here in the condo. I did not rent a car, did not need one. My daughter and I walked or rode the trolley everywhere we wanted to go. Many excellent restaurants very near and the Publix grocery store is right across the street. Liked my two week stay so much that I have rented the place for a month next year. Thanks Karen!!

honeymooners at 50

  • 5 of 5

Talked with Karen via e mail on and off while selecting a condo for our honeymoon. She was very nice to work with and instructing me on what to do when I got there. Turned out the condo looked just as the pictures show, was pleasantly surprised by the awesome shower and view from the deck. Condo was as close to brand new as it could be, very beautiful and well furnished. Got to meet a couple of the other owners on site who were also very nice and willing to offer any help needed. Take a bottle of wine and enjoy the sunset from here, very very nice.

Our favorite place to eat was the lighthouse just before Sanibel bridge on the right. We checked out a lot of the beaches but I would have to say we enjoyed the beach right in front on the condo the most. We also brought our bikes and checked out the nature preserve area on Sanibel island, spotted very many birds and a couple of alligators. Had a great lunch at the Island Cow right on the bike trails. We also booked a couple of cruises with Adventures in Paradise, which turned out to be quite fun.

Perfect Everything!

  • 5 of 5

I would like to start by saying that Karen was a joy to work with; communication was fantastic - very responsive and informative. As for the property, it offered far more than we imagined! The view and the sound of the waves were breathtaking! The condo was fully loaded with everything you could possibly need, from beach towels and books to blenders and cooking utensils! Not to mention, nicely decorated and extremely clean! During our stay we met some of the other frequent renters and they were an absolute delight and made for some great conversation while catching some rays ?! The location of the condo is perfect. There is a Publix directly across the street offering all your groceries, beer, wine, and floats for the water. The Trollee stops directly across the street that takes you up and down the boulevard from times square to Lovers Keys (25 cents 65 and older, 50 cents 65 and under). If you rent a car there is unassigned free covered parking at the property, which was very convenient. I hope this review answers some questions of those who are considering visiting The Shores, if there was anything else to suggest, it would be this, book immediately, you won’t regret it!

We hope to be back again soon,

Rhiannon and Greg

Our little bit of heaven...

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just loved your condo. It was everything we were looking for. The trolley made you convenient to everything. We just wanted the relaxing beach and it took me some time to find this after looking at many, many condos. The weather was perfect and so was the condo...even better than described. We hope to come back some day!!
