Property description

Enjoy life's lost art of relaxation in paradise!

Exquisite décor by Tommy Bahama, Ocean Club Collection, inspires the ways of the good life. You're invited to capture the essence of Island living at Sandpiper Beach House.

Inhabiting a Gulf Coast address, Sandpiper is steps to the white, sandy beaches of Florida's 'Caribbean' Gulf of Mexico. Captiva's shoreline is sprinkled with exotic birds and fabulous shells and is world renowned as Florida's sea shell coast.

The village of Captiva glitters with twinkling lights & Tahitian torches exhibiting a South Seas ambiance.
Gift shops and art galleries painted in bright pastel colors offer a unique selection of island treasures.

Captiva's award winning restaurants are a culinary delight offering island cuisine, live outdoor entertainment & spectacular sunsets. The 'outrageous' Bubble Room Restaurant is your delicious holiday from the ordinary, noted for their wildly famous orange coconut cake.

Naturalists, bicycle along Sanibel Island's 26 mile bike path to unspoiled beaches and quiet picturesque wetlands. Delight in scents of flowering Jasmine & Gardenia. You might even catch a glimpse of the endangered Bald Eagle.

Nearby Ft Myers & Lee County offer visitors even more options. The nightlife is within easy reach, as are many of Southwest Florida's natural wonders. Explore the Everglades, visit ancient cypress sloughs, or spend the day in one of the many local museums.

Anglers will delight in the fishing around Captiva, Sanibel, the waters of Pine Island Sound & the Gulf of Mexico. Captiva has been featured in national fishing magazines, and has a well-deserved reputation as a destination for Redfish, Tarpon & Snook.
