About Us
My name is Dave Herrick. My wife Sandy and I live north of Boston and we purchased this unit in
Sept. We also own a 2 BR unit gulf front unit at another complex 1 mile down the beach that
we bought in 2004. We have been coming to Sanibel for over 35 years. We owned a condo in the 80s
which we unfortunately sold in 1992.

During those years, we made Sanibel our annual vacation, usually over the Holidays to coincide with
school vacations for our three boys. Sometimes we had Christmas trees and boats in tow.
Sometimes it was grandparents joining us to escape the Boston cold. On every occasion, it was a
trip we all looked forward to with excitement and anticipation. My kids learned to swim on
Sanibel. This is where they saw their first alligator in the wild. We took daily bike rides on
the miles of bike paths and explored the wildlife at the numerous sanctuaries. Sometimes we just
walked the beach at low tide and talked about whatever interesting shells or other sea life we
found.

Overall, Sanibel became a very special place in our lives. It became a place we all enjoyed
together; a difficult concept to achieve in a diverse and growing family. During the nineties, we
missed our southern sojourns, but with the kids involved in school activities and moving on to
college, it became increasingly difficult to schedule family trips. Interestingly, with the kids
now through school and with families of their own, they have rekindled their own memories and
attraction to the Island.

We have enjoyed this new phase in our lives and look forward to continuing to share our Sanibel
home with our family and with other new and returning visitors.

Our desire is to establish a high quality, well maintained unit to which our guests will want to
return to, year after year.

Please call me before booking online for clarification of rental conditions

Dave and Sandy Herrick



REVIEWS

My wife and I just purchased this unit in Sept. The reviews below were posted on the prior
owner's website. We have been owners/visitors to Sanibel for over 35 years and will strive to
maintain and build upon this foundation to enhance your vacation experience

Great view, nice condo!
My husband and I just returned from the beautiful Sanibel Island. Our stay at Sundial A203
couldn't have been better! The condo is clean and spacious and the view cannot possibly be beat!!
Glenn and Gerrie are very conscientious about keeping the condo in great condition and make sure
their guests are satisfied customers. The king bed is very comfortable! The beach is great for
long walks and enjoying the magnificent ocean. If you are not a "beach sitter", the pools have
plenty of seating. The grounds of the Sundial are also very beautiful and well manicured. The
beach is not raked, since Sanibel is very eco-friendly. So you should expect the typical debris
that would wash up from the ocean along with all the shells! I would request that some new beach
chairs be purchased by the condo owners, since the ones available to take to the beach are at the
end of being usable. May I suggest wooden frames that won't rust in the dampness of the storage
closet. Also having a lounger would be great!!

Anniversary trip
We loved the cozy, comfortable condo! So close to the beach, we enjoyed seeing Dolphins several
mornings from the lanai! Went biking and enjoyed walking the beach, watched people shelling from
early morning to late at night! Having the pool so close was wonderful, managed to read two books.
Privacy was very important to us and this place was great, glad we chose Sundial A203😎 The sunrise
& sunsets were stunning.

Perfect location, this condo was exactly what the owners had stated. Best location at Sanibel Beach
steps from the sand it was equipped with everything we needed for our relaxing week. Very clean
amazing view from the Lanai and the layout worked perfectly for my husband and I. It was our first
trip to Sanibel and we absolutely loved it, wonderful Island to kick back relax and just enjoy
vacation. Lots of nice local places to dine, we enjoyed the Sanibel Café for breakfast/brunch as
well as the Over Easy Café, give the Fish House a try we had great service and a very good Grouper
Basket for dinner. For all your groceries needs Jerry's is a nice little stop and Most of All rent
the bicycles what a great way to see the Island and stop for some Ice Cream. I enjoyed morning
walks on the beach during sunrise and made a trip to the Sanibel Lighthouse one morning as well as
driving to Captiva Island for the amazing sunset multiple times. This is truly a little piece of
heaven.

We were very happy with this lovely condo! It was our first beach vacation and set the standard
very high for when and if we vacation on another beach! Our view of the Gulf was phenomenal! The
procedure for receiving our condo key was easy and the condo had everything we needed to spend a
great week of leisurely living at the beach.

A Little Bit of Heaven On Earth
The description of the property including location and the condo itself was 100% accurate. The
condo was as clean as a whistle and the owner could not have been more helpful, pleasant and
attentive. There was information concerning not only the condo and condo complex, but also area
restaurants, shopping, local attractions and a guest book, which I found to be very helpful,
especially since it was my first (hopefully, not last) visit to Sanibel. It had first-hand reviews
from guests who had stayed there regarding most anythng you would want to know. Waking up to the
view each morning did seem like a "little bit of heaven". Even though I was on vacation, I woke up
early every morning just to see the sunrise over the water. Everything is close by. Restaurants
are very reasonable and the choice is varied. It was one of the most relaxing vacations I have
ever had - beach 30 seconds away -- pool 30 seconds away -- what more can you ask for ! I would
without hesitation, recommend this condo/vacation to anyone. Looking forward to my next visit !

What a fabulous room to relax, view the gulf and Fort Meyers. And so close to the water, amazing.
close to the pool, outdoor grill, and a spot for our bikes outside too. Perfect lani for hanging
out, playing games and you can watch the TV from almost anywhere in the condo, if you really need
too... Clean, updated, and nicely appointed. Big refrig, coffee maker, etc. was all great for our
cooking. can't say enough nice things about our stay at A203...

Just what we needed!
For our first time staying on Sanibel, this condo was a gem. We watched sunrises and moonlit
nights from the lanai. The beach and pool were so close which made it very convenient. And, there
were shells, shells and more shells! October is a great month to go to Sanibel if you're looking
for a relaxing time. Plenty of parking and no waiting to be seated at restaurants. Thanks Glenn
and Gerrie . . . we hope to be back!
