Why Sanibel Surfside?


We are not the type to frequently return to the same destination due to our love of world-wide travel.  However in 1988 when we first visited Sanibel we knew we had to return.  Every year since 1988 we visited Mike’s parents who were renting a condo in Ft Myers.  Every day we would go to Sanibel and wish we could spend more time on the island.  Eventually our Sanibel vacations turned into a search to own the perfect beachfront condo to enjoy any time of year!


It took 20 years of annual Sanibel visits before the dream became a reality.  We looked at every condo complex on Sanibel and kept returning to Sanibel Surfside.  We liked this complex the best because it was the closest complex to the water with sliding glass/screen lanai doors and the Largest Lanais!  The Master Bedroom has the best view of the Gulf & beach too.  Also, there are only 38 units which means never having to save a chair by the pool or waiting to play on the 2 tennis courts.  A lot of owners live here 6 months a year and some live here 12 months a year. They really care about Sanibel Surfside and work hard to keep it beautiful and peaceful. We became owners in 2008 and have been returning to make constant updates and improvements to our condo about four times every year.


Our #1 goal is to have our condo be a highlight of guests visiting Sanibel.  We believe in providing the best customer service and amenities.  It will always be important to exceed our guests expectations when they are our guests.  Providing excellent service includes recommending other condos on Sanibel to guests that want other options that we do not have (sleep 6, children programs, hot tubs, less than 7 nights, pets, etc).  Some of our guests have become dear friends and even visited us at our St. Louis, Missouri home.  This isn’t just an “investment property”, it is truly our home and we want others to feel like it is their home too.
