What are you waiting for? This is the brightest star in Pointe Santo! You'll love relaxing in paradise in our beautifully decorated home. Our 2 bedroom, 2 bath, plus den unit has it all and was remodeled in September, 2015. All of the cabinets in both baths and the kitchen have been replaced with custom white cabinets with bead board fronts. The Kitchen has beautiful stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and tile backsplash. Other things included in the remodel were new carpet, plantation shutters, sconce lighting, fresh paint, front screen door, new bathroom mirrors, improved lighting, shower doors in both baths, and new ceiling fans! Most of the furniture, including on the lanai, is also new and is island style and very comfortable. Mattresses, sheets, bedspreads, towels, art, and flat screen tvs are also new. A bonus room can be used as a den or an extra room for one of the kids. The remodeled kitchen provides all of the comforts of home and is very well equipped with glassware, dishes, pots and pans, gadgets, and small appliances. Cooking a simple lunch or preparing a gourmet dinner is a cinch here. If you prefer, take advantage of one of the 9 gas grills located on the property.
Our location near the elevator on the 3rd floor provides you with a beautiful view of the vast beach, glorious gulf, lush grounds, lagoon, and afternoon sun. Our assigned parking space is right by the elevator so no need to worry about hauling groceries or luggage a long distance.
Cool day? No problem, the afternoon sun will warm you up. Warm day? Again, no worries as the 6 ceiling fans will keep you cool. Keep your luggage light and leave your hair dryers and beach towels at home. We provide them for you! Beach chairs, shelling tools, beach toys, and noodles are also provided. We have a large assortment of dvds, books, games, and puzzles for all ages to enjoy. We also provide an iHome so you can listen to music from your iPod, iPad, or iPhone.
Why Pointe Santo? We are located on West Gulf Drive, at the Southern most tip of the island, situated on 10 acres of land with 600 feet of beach frontage. The beach is at its widest point on the island here, providing plentiful shells and stunning sunsets. These sunsets can't be beat and are a nightly ritual at Pointe Santo. Amenities at Pointe Santo include a heated fresh water pool (with daily adult swim hours of 9-10am and 4-5pm), lounge chairs on the beach, volleyball net on the beach, 2 shuffleboard courts, 2 tennis courts, and hot tub. The clubhouse is located by the pool and the on-site activities director launches the scheduled daily activities from here. A schedule of each week's programs for ages 4 to adult is posted here. Some typical activities include shell crafts, hair braiding, educational beach walks, bingo, board games, card games, ice cream socials, and volleyball instructions. Walk a short distance on the beach for a poolside lunch or cocktail.
