Below are a list of Frequently Asked Questions.
Q. What time is check in and check out?
A. Check in is at 4:00pm, as that gives us time to have the condo thoroughly cleaned and inspected before your arrival. Check out is 10am. If you arrive after 5pm don't worry. Your Keys are available 24 hours a day. There is a locked box with your keys at our property manager's office. The combination to that locked box will be provided to you after your final payment. Unfortunately there are no early check-in or late check-out options.
Q. Do you accommodate pets?
A. Unfortunately no. We love animals but guests are not allowed to bring a pet to Sanibel Surfside. If you see other pets they belong to owners/residents that live there 6 to 12 months a year.
Q. Is there a maximum number of people? Minimum age requirement?
A. Yes. Including children and infants only 4 are allowed in our condo. Sanibel Surfside #122 & #111 are perfect for a romantic getaway, friends travelling together, or a small family. We do not have a sleeper sofa in either condo. If you need a condo that sleeps more than 4 total...consider renting both of our condos. You will be more comfortable. Our condo association has a minimum age requirement of 25 years old to sign a rental agreement.
Q. Is there an elevator?
Q. Can I reserve for more or less than 7 nights?
A. Most condo associations on Sanibel have a 7 night minimum rule. Sanibel Surfside requires a 7 night minimum. Our condo is usually solidly booked from Saturday to Saturday. Additional nights would mean having to pay for an additional week even if you did not need an extra 7 nights. Someof our guests have rented our condos for 2 full weeks and only stayed for 10 days.
Our favorite option is to recommend staying in Ft. Myers close to the Sanibel causeway bridge. You can go to the outlet mall and get groceries at Publix before checking in at 4pm. We've stayed and looked at different hotels near Sanibel and our favorite is: The Hampton Inn.
Their address is: 11281 Summerlin Square Blvd., Fort Myers Beach, FL 33931. 239-437-8888. www.ftmyersbeachsuites.hamptoninn.com
This entire hotel was recently remodeled and includes free Wi-Fi and free breakfast. There is a swimming pool too.
Q. Is smoking permitted in the condos and/or the lanais?
A. Sanibel Surfside is a non-smoking complex. For the health and pleasure of each guest, smoking is not permitted in the lanais, condos, building corridors, pool area or grounds. Smokers will prefer a different condo complex due to the enforced strict no smoking rules at Sanibel Surfside. We can recommend ohter condo complexes that allow smoking (Sanibel Siesta, Pointe Santo, Sundial).
