Sanibel is beautiful! We had a hurricane free season in southwest Florida. We did have a short visit from Red Tide but it is now gone and the beach at the Pointe Santo condominiums is clean and the Gulf is clear and a beautiful aqua color.
Our condo, Pointe Santo D35, underwent a concrete restoration project this summer, as did the other units in the D building. Our lanai was rescreened after the project, and we replaced the flooring with a beautiful, plank style, porcelain.
Pointe Santo replaced all of the grills this summer and they heat up very fast and hot. It’s easy to grill your favorite meal, then make it out to the beachfront for sunset. And, this green flash was captured just last week!
One of my favorite restaurants in Sanibel is the Sandbar. It’s very close to the Pointe Santo condos for a quick drive, or an easy walk. They know how to prepare fish better than anywhere on the island. They also have great steaks and a fabulous pork chop. http://sanibelsandbar.com
Please contact me for availability! Hope to hear from you soon.

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 >>
