The property was ocean front but the view was somewhat obstructed by trees. Just steps from the ocean. Nice quiet location.

The property was in a great location and very clean and neat inside and out. Wonderful screened in patios in front of our condo and off the master bedroom. Just had a great stay! Sink in the master bedroom needs to be unplugged. Very slow to drain.

Red Tide and liars... waste of time and money

Pros: Condo was nice. The neighboring condo was being renovated so that noise was nice to listen to while you were confined to your room because red tide.
My family of five drove 17 hours for a relaxing vacation of shelling and fishing and just enjoying the beauty of Sanibel. We pulled in and as soon as we unpacked the car we rushed to see our beach. Before we got through the dunes the smell of dead fish hit us. Then we saw the beach covered with dead fish and eels. It was disgusting and we thought Sanibel beaches are gross. A local was walking by and said that it was Red Tide. Never heard of it. I pulled out my phone and did a quick google search to see what it was. I read an article about a dead whale shark washing up on the beach the week before. We walked a little further on the beach and we started coughing and our throats were burning. My daughter has asthma and I realized we needed to get her out of there. Since we arrived on a Sunday the office was not open. So on Monday morning we went to the office and asked what was going on with the dead fish. The lady behind the desk said that she didn't know what was going on and it wasn't at all like that on Saturday when they were last there. I guess she didn't notice the whale shark from the week before? She was snarky and rude and a liar. We packed up and left early on Tuesday. We couldn't stay there and risk getting sick. They only offered to refund the nights we hadn't used, they could have warned us that red tide was going on before we traveled. We could have gotten a refund through insurance if we stayed home. Instead they let us waste our vacation time and $$$.

The Red Tide

The unit we stayed in was a beach facing unit and a upper floor. Inside the condo was very clean needs some updating in regards to furniture and counter tops and kitchen appliances. The beds were comfortable. The sliding doors seem to be old and may need updating although they did open with ease. Now to the part that was not so good. The red tide, the smell was so bad on the beach and every day thousands of dead fish washed up on shore. Staff burried them in the morning on the beach and by sunset just as many washed back up a never ending supply it was so sad. After three days of being there the local government started cleaning up sections of the beach but private places such as hotels and condos were responsible for the clean up on their property. The first day we arrived staff told us about the beach conditions and said we could call the local government to find out more information, but honestly they should of offered us to come at another time for free as those beaches should of been closed it was that bad. They also informed us that the pool pump was broken so no swimming unless we wanted to walk next store to sanibel arms and use their pool. It was fixed on the 2nd day. If under normal circumstances ( no red tide) it would of been beautiful. We also rented bicycles to ride around the island the smell even got to us doing that and did I mention the dry irritating cough that wouldn’t stop. I would love for SAW to respond to me.
