Mariner Pointe is a condominium residential community of 101 units set on a seven-acre finger of land between San Carlos Bay and the East End canal system of Sanibel Island. It lies at the heart of the island’s exclusive and ultra-private Gateway District.

Amenities include two heated swimming pools, two all-weather tennis courts, pickleball, a private fishing pier (where, incidentally, a 150-pound tarpon was landed several years ago), ten barbecue grills spread over six locations, private canal-side dockage for up to 30 boats, shuffleboard, assigned parking, and an easy-in/out kayak launch pad with nearby storage area. Not incidental is the property’s proximity to some of the best dolphin and manatee watching in Southwest Florida.

The 10 main two- and three-story buildings house mostly two-bedroom/two-bath units. A number of others are one-bedroom, with a few three-bedroom units. All come with an assigned parking space.

Construction began in 1972. The complex was completed in 1977, and since its beginning, it has withstood strikes by nine ten named hurricanes.
