Choices for Sanibel vacation rentals often revolve around location.
Where one wants to be on the Island, helps to shape the option chosen in making a booking.
Similarly, how one wants to live on vacation, has a tremendous impact on whether a private home or condominium will best meet your needs.
For some, it is an easy choice; for the family or group of friends looking to spend a month on Island, the gravitation toward a home is a logical choice.
A home not only offers the necessary number of bedrooms, it provides more privacy and more options for where and how to gather during monthly stays. Larger kitchens offer tables for those evenings where playing cards is the night's activity, a comfy space for having some chips and dip at the card table.
But if pool parties are more your style for your friends and family, some Island homes can give you a private retreat where you can laze in the sun or sit and read a book.
For the smaller group, especially those looking for a shorter vacation, a condo will make more sense.
The 28 night minimum applies to almost all houses on Sanibel, very few were grandfathered from that restriction. But in addition to compliance, convenience and social interaction may be important to some vacationers.
Even those homes that have pools, have relatively small pools, while a condo complex will have a much larger place to swim. For lap swimmers, the size will be very important. And there are visitors who welcome the company of others while they are on holiday. The social interaction is much facilitated in a condo stay. This could be a pivotal point in a family's special enjoyment of a vacation when there are other kids for theirs to play with and talk to.
All vacationers should consider the options open to them when choosing Sanibel as a destination. And those who work with an agency have the added benefit of being able to discuss them with an objective booking agent. Our agents are knowledgeable about our properties and if you have specific concerns in mind, we can counsel you on the best choices for your stay and direct you to them.
