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.
As of May 8, 2018, we are no longer listed with VRBO Sanibel. The main reason for this is to save you money by you not having to pay the 10% booking fee that they now charge. So, when searching for Sanibel rentals or Pointe Santo rentals, remember, you will have to pay extra if you book through VRBO Pointe Santo. Inquiring through this website (www.pointesantosanibelisland.com) is always less money and you’ll have an opportunity to ask questions, ask for recommendations, and get to know more about Pointe Santo D35. I look forward to hearing from you to discuss Sanibel Island Vacations in more detail.
Have a safe and wonderful summer!
