As usual the experience in Villa Sanibel 1D was excellent. Theu nit is well maintained and has all the items available you would need for an excellent stay. The list is long and includes beach, kitchen, linens, etc. etc. Can't say enough good things about the unit.

We didnt want to leave!

This was our first time to Sanibel Island and we loved it. We will definitely be back. Starting off with the Positives. we loved the Island and its many restaurants. We really like the condo at Villa Sanibel and how quite and small the property was. it was very clean and all the people we met were friendly. Our only complaint about 1D was the very hard mattress in the master bedroom. i like a firm bed but this one was way too hard. The no see ums were pretty bad when we were there. we found out a day too late what bug spray worked the best. My wife got hundreds of bites that kind of ruined the trip for her, but even with the bugs she didn't want to leave. Our portion of the beach was very dirty due to a algae bloom but we were able to travel up and down the beach to Light House beach and Blind Pass where we had a great time. All in all we had a great vacation and cant wait to go back
Manager response on 2019-09-26 - Response from Sanibel Holiday
UPDATE: as of Jan 2020 the owners have provided a plush foam topper to accommodate guests who prefer a softer mattress! They hope their future guests will find the perfect beach getaway at Villa Sanibel 1D! We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay even though you experienced a few hiccups. For such a small island we are fortunate to boast well over 50 restaurants from fine dining to casual eats with something for every occasion and palate. Villa Sanibel is a wonderful property with just 20 units and all of them have great beach access but those in building #1 are mere steps from toes-in-the-sand status (my count for 1D is 20 steps!). I personally couldn't agree more - a bad mattress can certainly make the best vacation go sour fast. We try to stay ready for whatever our guests need to make sure they are getting a comfortable and good nights sleep. If you find your mattress is too firm please reach out to us, we will happily bring a mattress topper over. We are in the business of Happy Guests so please feel free let us know if something is lacking or not to your liking. Those no-see-ums can be little stinkers for sure! I've attached a link to our beach blog that can hopefully help you avoid a similar experience next time... . Most of the time Mother Nature brings us a bounty of beautiful shells, sometimes she adds a little seaweed/red drift algae. While admittedly it makes the beaches unpleasant, fortunately it's not toxic and as you found trying out new beaches up and down our coastline can help you find one that isn't impacted on that day. We look forward to your return to our little slice of paradise!

The condo was decorated beautifully and had everything that we needed! We really appreciated the children’s items we found in the guest closet such as the high chair! It made our meals significantly more convenient. The easy access to the beach was a wonderful plus. We’ve been staying in Sanibel for years. This is by far our favorite location!

Beautiful Condo. Great location on beach.

the unit was tastefully decorated and furnished and had all the needed items for cooking in, as well as chairs to enjoy the beach and bikes to ride. we rented additional bikes for the kids. the pool was clean and just the right size. we found the local farmer's market, which is on Sundays through the winter months, and it's a must for getting fresh veggies and fruit as well as seafood. we ate at Island Cow several times and don't let the line fool you, they are quick, and food was good. loved how close the building and unit was to the beach.

This condo is in the perfect location, just a couple hundred steps from the shoreline. Everything you need the hosts have generously provided, from buckets and shovels to bikes and towels. Beds are comfortable and decor is a celebration of the island and its natural inhabitants. This is our second stay here and we feel we've finally found our home away from home.

OK, not great.

This was our second visit to this particular condo complex, but in a different unit. We love this location on Sanibel.

We did not like that this particular unit was tiled throughout; there were either no rugs or not enough rugs.

The green sofa is dingy and should be cleaned or replaced. The cushions in the wicker chairs were not comfortable.

The kitchen was missing a couple necessary items, in our opinion: can opener, bowl scraper/spatula. We bought a broom because the one in the unit was useless.

The grill outside our building, although fairly new, was in disrepair.

The condo obviously hadn't had a THOROUGH cleaning in a while; we found sand, debris, dust bunnies, etc. under the furniture.

On the bright side, the mattresses were satisfactory. Again, the location on the island is great. We probably would not opt to stay in this unit again, but we do like this condo complex. Wish the cleaning company employed would do a better job between guests.

Excellent location & management firm. Dated furnishings

We have been vacationing on Sanibel for many years and have stayed at some great places. Villa Sanibel is the best! We have stayed here three years in a row and have absolutely loved our accommodations. Villa Sanibel is on the beach and beautifully located so that you can see the sunrise and the sunset. We had immediate access to the bike paths and the many destinations offered on Sanibel. This year, we were able to visit the Sanibel Farmers Market twice. When in season, do not miss this event every Sunday morning. I can't imagine staying anywhere but Villa Sanibel.

Mezera return / remembrance.

This is our second year renting this unit, and we would love to make it a yearly tradition. The home is clean and well equipped. Step out the front door and the grill is there to use. The beach is a few steps further down the path, which makes cooking a pleasure.

Sea Shell's and Sunshine and Sunsets right on the beach.

We had a very comfortable condo footsteps from the beach. We saw gorgeous Sanibel sunsets every night and the weather was great. Only rain was at night. Biking, soaking up the sun and collecting shells. It doesn't get any better that that. The only weakness was sketchy cell phone coverage on ground floor condo.

What an amazing week! The condo was incredibly clean and provided everything we could possibly want. The beds were very comfortable. The owner provided a pack & play and booster seat for my daughter which was great. The beach chairs were perfect. We were steps (literally) from the beach. My daughter (20 months) would load her pail and shovel into a little cart and march off to the beach. The pool was deserted when we were there (it could have been a tad warmer, but we were fine). The location is close to restaurants, bike paths, ice cream, bike rentals and grocery stores. The condo is decorated with amazing photographs by the owner of all of Sanibel's wildlife and my Mom and I enjoyed showing my daughter all the animals she could see. Honestly, an amazing experience. We will be back.

Sanibel Villas 1D was the perfect spot for us. From the door to the sand was 40 steps, easy to return to for a drink or a forgotten item. There are only 3 buildings with 8 units each, so the beach and pool were always uncrowded and we got to know other guests. The unit was spotlessly clean, brightly decorated, and the Martins provide any item you could possibly need from sand toys to bikes, boogie boards to beach towels. They even have a great collection of books for beach-reading.

Sanibel Holiday provided terrific service, making recommendations on activities and restaurants and ensuring the unit was perfect. Taitum was particularly helpful in dealing with an A/C problem reported by a previous guest. Though it turned out to be unfounded, she made it clear that she would do her best to fix the problem or re-accommodate us so our vacation would not be affected. We would not hesitate to book this condo again!
