Our island condos have quite a bit to offer and I believe we have something for everyone! We are having a good year with condo sales, and we also have a great inventory for our upcoming season.
On Sanibel you have 107 condo complexes to choose from, and as a long-time island resident I can help you find just the right fit for you and your family. Some condos are geared more for owner use, and some are geared for rentals, and some are geared for both. I can help explain to you all the different choices. Shopping for condos can be fun!
Currently Sanibel Island has 130 condos listed for sale. Asking prices start at $169,000 for a 1/1 at Colonnades Condo to $2,999,900 for a 3/3.5 at Sedgemoor of Sanibel on the Gulf.
Listings show that 103 are gulf view or gulf front, 10 are on the bay, and 3 are on a canal.
The Sanibel condo market this year has been fairly busy with a total of 150 condos being under contract or closed since the first of the year.
Captiva Island has approximately 18 condo complexes, with a total of 56 condos currently listed for sale. Asking prices start from $225,000 for a 1/1 at Tennis Villas to $2,000,000 for a 3/3 located in South Seas Beach homes.
Captiva has had 33 condos either close or currently pending so far this year.
So! Is this your year to buy an island property? I think it should be! Prices are reasonable and have just started to climb. The housing problems seem to be behind us and it's again time for buyers to enter our market. Sanibel's beaches and sights are still here and are waiting for you. Give me a call today so I can start your search for the perfect island property.
I would also like to show you this video (left) made by one of our talented local videographers. This video shows our area in all its beauty. Take a few minutes to watch this video - and then give me a call so I can make you a part of this special area of the world!
Beaches, shelling, boating, restaurants, shopping, nature and privacy - you need look no further!
As you can tell, I love this area. I've lived here for years and love showing Sanibel and Captiva off to our visitors. Whether it's a gulf front on Captiva, a bay front with a dock, or an interior property near our National Wildlife Refuge, we have a bit of everything and I'm sure we have just the right place for you!
Did you know you can take a quick tour of some of our favorite neighborhoods? I've been putting together web pages and videos of Sanibel and Captiva for you to enjoy as you start your search of island properties. Our summer weather is almost here and it's a great time to enjoy all the sights and fun things to do on the islands. Besides searching for your island home, summer is great for birding, fishing, shelling and just enjoying miles and miles of our word famous beach!
By watching these videos you can get an idea of what each neighborhood has to offer. I also have a web page for each area in my website's "Near Beach" section. It's a great place to start to explore our islands! I also have pages dedicated to the Lighthouse, Wildlife Refuge and a video tour of Sanibel's eastern end. As well as the information in my website, I'd love for you to use my contact form, or call me at 239-691-4915, so I can put together information for you for your perfect island property!

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!
