SarahAshton.com - The Best Place To Start!

This week I would like to point out some of the fun and useful things that you can do with my website! From interesting facts about Sanibel and Captiva Islands to informative videos of our neighborhoods and condos, this is a one-stop site for all your island questions.

The Captiva video on the  right is a great way to check out Captiva Island and what it has to offer. I also have a Captiva webpage, a "Downtown" Captiva webpage along with links to our restaurants and marinas! I also have a video of my Gulf front Captiva listing for you to enjoy.

Captiva is world famous for its beaches, sights and quaint style and I'd love to be able to show you around!

If you want to search for properties, my site has the most modern and useful search engine you will find. You can search with whatever criteria you wish, or by map (left), or subdivision or condo. It's easy to use and you can save your searches and email your results to friends and relatives.

I even have a page of important numbers you might need when you decide to move to the islands.

As you drive around the island checking out which areas or condos look good to you, you can use my mobile site as you travel around the island. You can search properties with your smart phone or tablet as well as learn about the area and what it has to offer.

If you want to check out Sanibel before you get to the island, I have a couple of videos I made of the east end of the island. It's a great place to start! Click Here! I'm also proud of a video I have of one of Sanibel Island's most popular sites - The J.N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge.

As for our local neighborhoods and condos, my condo page and neighborhood page have links to each area along with video tours of each area. This is a wonderful way to check out all the different areas of the island without leaving your home!

Each area has local information, an area map and virtual tour of the neighborhood or condo!

Other fun things you can do on my website -
How about a visit to our lighthouse?
Check out where our miles and miles of walking/bike trails lead!
How about how to go "Green" or to download my Green Guide!
Check out my listings along with videos!
Tips for the Buyer and the Seller!
And, of course, Contact Me for answers to ALL your questions!
Or you can just connect with me on Facebook or Pinterest!

My site has lots more to offer and please feel free to check out all my pages and links!

When it's time for you to buy or sell I'll be there for you! I am a long-time island resident and I love to show off my islands! This is your year to follow your heart to Sanibel And Captiva Islands!

 Pointe Santo de Sanibel
One of Sanibel's BEST condo developments!

Pointe Santo de Sanibel is a gulf front condo located at the end of Tarpon Bay Road. Offering weekly rentals, this complex is a favorite for families. The pool-side clubhouse always has activities to keep the kids entertained while the adults relax by the pool!

 

 

Build in the mid 70s, Pointe Santo de Sanibel has 141 units. The units face a large lake in the center of the resort or the Gulf of Mexico. The resort/condo has some of the best repeat rental business for weekly rentals.

 

Sanibel Island offers so much for visitors and locals and this condo adds to the list. Along with the clubhouse, there is a large pool, two tennis courts, miles and miles of Sanibel beach, and weekly rentals.

Currently there are 10 units available. One condo is a one bedroom, one bath for $497,900. Eight are two bedroom, two bath units from $599,900 to $885,000. There is one three bedroom, two bath, listed for $949,00.

All the listed units are fully furnished and ready to go! Pointe Santo de Sanibel is a fantastic place to spend your vacation, as well as have your unit for rent when you're not able to be there. The location is near Bailey's General Store, our movie theatre, and all the great shopping on Periwinkle Way.

 

If you want to explore our islands you can hop on over 20 miles of biking/walking trails right in front of the resort. If golf is your sport, Sanibel and Captiva have three semi-private championship golf courses to choose from.

If you just want to enjoy nature, over 60% of Sanibel Island is conservation preserve, the largest protected area being the Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge. The bird watching on Sanibel is as famous as the shelling on our beaches!

 

 

I have a great slideshow tour of Pointe Santo de Sanibel on my condo page (HERE) as well as a map of the property. Check it out and let me know what you think!

As always, I can answer all your Sanibel Real Estate questions, as well as any general questions you might have about life on these great islands! Just give me a call at 239-691-4915, or use this Contact Form, and I'll help in any way I can! Mortgage rates are incredibly low and prices are reasonable! This is the time to buy!

 

Thanks,
Sarah

Last night the "Love that Dress" event to benefit the PACE Foundation took place at the Tahitian Gardens plaza on Sanibel Island.  The purpose was to raise money and to collect new or slightly used dresses that will be auctioned off next month.

It was a great time and the generosity of the residents and businesses on the island just continues to amaze me.  Royal Shell Companies was the primary sponsor of the event and Baileys General Store and The Prawnbroker Group - aka Timbers and Sanibel Grill provided great munchies and wine.  The chinese auction raised over $1000 and was made up of donations by the store owners in Tahitian Gardens.

Each of the stores had a "model" to showcase the stores' goods and to act as an official greeter to each store.  Realtors from Royal Shell Real Estate participated, including myself and we were able to adorn ourselves with clothing and jewelry for the evening.

Just a great night and a another reminder of why the islands of Sanibel and Captiva are so special!

Sanibel Island's Baileyfest has become an Island tradition.  Each year, Sam and Francis Bailey - owners of Bailey's General Store, host a traditional Fall Festival complete with hayrides, games and live music - oh, and of course - food.  In recent years it has really come into it's own with all the merchants of the Bailey's Center, where it takes place, joining in the fun. 

As an added bonus this year, there is a raffle with prizes worth over $1700!  It is quite something when the local businesses donate so much for a community party.  Sanibel Island is and continues to be a unique place and Baileyfest demonstrates that it isn't just about the Sanibel Beaches and shells. 

More than 40 different door prizes - valued at more than $1,700 - will be awarded at the 24th annual Baileyfest.  This is a Sanibel Island event not to be missed.

Baileyfest 2009 will be held on Sunday, Oct. 25 from 1 to 4 p.m. at Bailey's Center, located on the corner of Periwinkle Way and Tarpon Bay Road. 

All 14 merchants in the Bailey's Center Merchants' Association (BCMA) have donated prizes:

Bailey's General Store $100 gift card

Bailey's True Value Hardware $100 gift card

Biddles Bucket Four $25 gift certificates

The Grog Shop $100 case of wine

Nick's Frozen Yogurt $100 gift basket

Hillgate Communications $100 spa gift basket

Island Cleaners $100 gift package

Island Cinema 10 $10 gift certificates for concessions

Lily & Co. $495 jewelry set

Sanibel Barber Shop Four $25 gift certificates

Sanibel Beauty Salon $100 beauty gift basket

Sanibel Shell Automotive Four $25 gift certificates for parts or labor

Select Vacation Properties $100 BBQ gift basket

Maybe it's time for you to check out Sanibel Island Real Estate and make it easier for you to enjoy Baileyfest year after year!

It is definately Summer on Sanibel Island!  The temperatures are climbing and the buzz is all about July 4th.  As many know - Sanibel Island hosts a real July 4th Parade filled with great floats and the streets lined with kids picking up candy thrown from the floats.  It is a real treat and something quite unique.  The entire community comes out.  This year's theme of the parade is "Going Green"  It will be very interesting to see what the parade entrants come up with. 

What is new is that after the parade, in Bailey's Plaza, they are hosting "Bailey's Backyard Bar-B-Q" from 10 - 2 on Saturday the 4th.  This I am sure will prove to be a real hoot!.  There will be lots of fun for everyone and the food and beverage will be outstanding.  So - if you are in the area and looking for something to do - come see the parade and stop by Baileys.
