Perfect vacation    Jul 07, 2019

review star

This week we stayed at this beautiful condo. It is in the best location and close to everything. Even at peak season the traffic is not bad and the beach is not too crowded. Not too crowded and two fast elevators with a glass view. The condo had everything and plenty of room. Just perfect. Absolutely beautiful as well. Comfortable beds made it even better. Saw dolphins every morning from the amazing balcony. We will be back. Thank you for making our vacation even better.

WOW    Jul 22, 2018

WOW! As soon as you walk in the door you are met with a wide view of the ocean! Out the back, a beautiful view of the bay- don't miss the sunsets over the bay, they are breathtaking! This condo is really amazing. Open floor plan allows for plenty of room in the main area of house. The condo was super clean and tastefully decorated. You do feel like you are at the beach, even inside. Kitchen well stocked and owner even has a couple of buggies to help take your stuff to the beach which is just a quick hop across the street! We had a wonderful vacation, thank you so much for opening your amazing home to our family! We made a week of wonderful memories! This condo does not disappoint.

LOVE LOVE LOVE... the Barbie condo is amazing!!”
[5 of 5 stars] Reviewed July 27, 2016 for a stay in June 2016This was our second time staying in the Barbie condo (Sanibel 1203) and we absolutely love it! The views are amazing and the condo is gorgeous! Super clean and very roomy! We had 4 adults and 2 teenagers and we had plenty of room for everyone and all of our stuff. The kitchen is equipped with everything that you need. The walk to the beach takes less than 5 minutes from room to sand and the 2 lane road that you cross has never been busy when we have stayed ( June 2016 & Labor day 2015). We spent more time on the balcony (that is huge) than in the condo because it was so nice out there! There is always a breeze and I love the sound of the waves. The pool is always nice and clean and the 24 hour security was a nice bonus! If you are looking for things to do the zoo was amazing.. you have to do the "lemur encounter" and "kangaroo encounter" where you get to go in the cage/pen and play with the animals!! The Dolphin Cruise is also one of our favorites. Lulu's food is always great but if you want a local favorite be sure to check out The Diner (across from Tacky Jacks). That's the one place we have to eat every time we visit. Dana is great to work with and always goes out of her way to answer any questions that you have. I hope you enjoy our vacation and enjoy the condo!
