About the owner: Our family lives in Edinburgh in Scotland and we have been coming to Sanibel and Captiva since 2006. We are Harold and Sandra, and our son Joshua is 19 and our daughter Katie is 16. We love the island and it is truly a total paradise...
We feel very privileged to have a home here and would hope that anyone who stays enjoys the beauty of the surroundings and all that Sanibel brings to a superb quality of life.
Why the Owner Chose Other Sanibel Island Properties: We were here for a holiday in July 2012 - and during the last two days before returning home - we were showed the property as it was for sale... Immediately we all liked the warm, spacious feel about the house and the quality of the remodelling which had been done previously. The views on to the golf course are wonderful and I have found that during these last few months - they are truly unique.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The view is stunning, and the Lanai has sliders which can be opened in the cooler months to allow the breeze to flow through. From a family who live in a climate which usually ranges from 50 - 60 degrees - that is truly wonderful!!
The real benefit though is the spaciousness and light in the general living area - everyone who has come into the house has said and felt the same - it's a sunshine house with a quality, warm feeling about it.
