STORYBOOK-CHARMING BEACH COTTAGE ~TURN BACK TIME & REVISIT YOUR CHILDHOOD MEMORIES ~ Make new memories & savor the old time feeling of Sanibel and Captiva Islands ~~ old Florida like you've never seen before
The best part of this experience is that you simply "come as you are" Seriously -- You don't need to bring anything -- we've thought of it all. So it's worry-free packing --Bring you swimsuit, sandals, beachy clothes and your lunch ;)
Okay now that packing isn't important, it's time to picture yourself in a tropical & airy beach setting -~ A comfortable cottage with two lovely bedrooms, a bath with tub/shower, light & cozy furnishings in living and dining room, and a fully equipped kitchen. You'll have everything you need. Not a single care.
We have a screened porch with eating area for breakfast or coffee to start your day. Then off to the beach ...We provide the beach chairs, cooler, umbrella & toys. Choose a book from our library and off you go. You bring the sunscreen!
Seagrape Cottage has private access to a practically secluded beach... only 99 steps up the sandy path.
Rent a bike for a day or week ~ Pedal anywhere on the island.
We're about a block away from Lighthouse Point, the fishing pier, marina, Lighthouse Cafe & Old Town with its specialty shops, ice cream parlor & boutiques.
Sunday afternoons, bike to the farmer's market and fill your basket with fresh fruits and veggies. Buy some fresh breads & pastries and have a picnic at your practically private beach.
In the evenings, sip a glass of wine or tea and enjoy one of the many films at the cottage. There's time to read, play scrabble, start a jigsaw puzzle or whatever you do for relaxation after a day of sunshine and fun. And the stars in the Sanibel sky are awesome so don't forget to take a late walk under the moon.

Year Purchased: 1994
About the owner: Welcome~ We hope you'll love Sanibel as much as we do. It's hard to describe the feeling people get visiting our home but it's kind of like going back in time. It's a slow pace where relaxation is the key word: time seems to go slower here. Everyone strolls, bikes, walks, and meanders through the days. People are kind, friendly and unhurried. And the Island can be a romantic get-away or a family vacation with something to do for everyone. Or just hang out on the beach and chill..... Owners are 30 min away and accessible anytime -- your happiness at our cottage is of prime importance to us. Read our long list of our guests' comments and find out what kind of place our cottage is and who we are. I think you'll find that we work hard to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Most people return to Sanibel Island again and again and those lucky enough, stay with us in our lovely cottage. Sanibel's beaches are dog-friendly. Owners will consider a small dog. We are huge animal lovers too.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, East End:
Sanibel Island is home to many artists and writers with an energy that is catchy. I think that's why we bought our home over 17 years ago. And nothing much has changed -- the island is still quaint, peaceful and beautiful. Not a fast food kind of place - cozy and unique restaurants and boutique dining. It's all very laid back but still special and memorable for the family. Make your memories here. It's a charming little island that feels like it's somewhere other-worldly. (Does that sound strange? Okay. You'll 'get it' when once you arrive and begin to stroll rather than hustle.) We bought our duplex as a place for the family to be together and now it's that plus the perfect place for our guests to learn about island living, get relaxed, unwind, and enjoy the island and SW Florida for a unique holiday stay at the beach.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Since we have practically private beach access, you won't find many other people on your end of this secluded beach. Only 2 streets on East End that have direct walking access to beach. We are one.We are on the bike path route as well; simply rent bikes from one of the island vendors and use them as your method of transportation during your stay. That's the way most people do it ~ It's a blast from the past. Everyone enjoys the fabulous restaurants on the Island, but it's great to have some home cooking too. Go fishing during the day~ then cook some grouper in the evening. It's relaxing to stay at home and cuddle up with a book or watch a film -- we have a large selection of both. Or perhaps you want to start a jigsaw puzzle or play scrabble or chess. And once you realize that Sanibel is a seashell paradise, you will soon do the 'Sanibel Stoop as you find unique seashells on the beaches of the serene Gulf of Mexico. (Sanibel beaches are dog-friendly) Home to artists, writers, professionals and celebrities.
