Hello Pointe Santo D35 friends! What a beautiful spring it has been at the Sanibel beachfront condos! This photo was taken just a few days ago. Gorgeous sunny sky, pristine beach, and crystal clear gulf waters. What more could you ask for?
It’s turtle season on Sanibel beach. From now until November, different species of sea turtles will be coming ashore to lay their eggs. If you see a small area roped off near the top of the beach by the vegetation, it is a turtle nest. Please do not disturb them. They will hatch late at night when the moon is bright. Then, they follow the moonlight and head to the Gulf. For this reason, it’s important to not leave anything on the beach at night. Please bring up your umbrellas, chairs, shoes, etc. These are all obstacles for the hatchlings. Since they follow the moonlight to the water, it’s also important to turn off all lights that could draw attention away from the Gulf. No lights should be shining toward the beach. And, if you are lucky enough to see the little guys walking to the gulf after hatching, please do not use flash photography. They’ll be blinded.

The busy season for Pointe Santo condo rentals is winding down. The last couple of weeks of spring breaks are upon us and many visitors are enjoying the beautiful aqua water of the Gulf of Mexico along the coast. The Sanibel beachfront condos of Pointe Santo have been a great place for shelling, fabulous sunsets, relaxation, rejuvenation, and just keeping warm all winter. Oh, and the pelicans and the dolphins love the wide beach in front of Pointe Santo D35!
A new great restaurant, Traders 2, recently opened and is now one of our favorites. It’s owned by the same people as Trader’s Restaurant and has outside seating. The menu is small plates, sandwiches, flatbreads, etc. It’s close to Pointe Santo and is open for lunch and dinner. http://www.t2traders.com
We had record breaking temperatures in February and March which made for a very busy season for Sanibel rentals. Remember, it’s ALWAYS more economical to book directly through this Pointe Santo D35 website than to book through VRBO Pointe Santo. You avoid the 10% + booking fee by doing so.
Stay warm and hope to see you on the beach soon!Read More >>
Hello! Good news from the Sanibel Island Condo Rentals community! I just returned from Pointe Santo and am happy to report that Sanibel and Captiva islands survived Hurricane Irma. There was very little structural damage anywhere on the islands, but a lot of trees did either uproot or get blown over. The clean up has been swift and except for some piles of vegetation by the street, waiting to be hauled away and mulched, you’d never know Irma paid a visit just 2 weeks ago. The crew at Pointe Santo has done a remarkable job cleaning up the courtyard, lagoon, and pool, and the beach was unscathed. Pointe Santo D35 didn’t have any damage and we already have a renter staying in the condo. A great website to check when wanting updates on Sanibel Island is mysanibel.com
I will be blogging regularly with the most current information about Pointe Santo D35. So, when researching Sanibel rentals, please be sure to check this website. VRBO Sanibel isn’t updated as often so this is the place to keep current. Recent photos will be posted as well as suggestions for visitors on things to do and where to dine when on Sanibel Island vacations.
Stay tuned!Read More >>
