Private Homes cottage description

Located at the east end of the island, this beach bungalow is nestled at the end of a quiet sand and shell lane a few steps from the Gulf. The cottage features its own private pool and screened lanai.

Three bedrooms (king size bed in the master bedroom, twin beds in the second bedroom and queen size bed in third bedroom). Sitting room with TV off the master bedroom. The garden is landscaped with a variety of native Gulf Coast flora.

Sanibel Island offers world class shelling and a small town family atmosphere. There are nature hikes and bike trails, as well as fishing and boating. The J. N. 'Ding' Darling National Wildlife Refuge is known for its abundant bird life.

The Gulf is at the end of the lane a few yards away with no streets for children to cross. Dining and a market area are less than 2 minutes' walk away. The cottage is also near the marina, lighthouse, and fishing pier.

Sanibel statute requires leases of our home to be for at least 28 days. This is to prevent homes in the neighborhood from becoming essentially boarding houses. As a result, you will enjoy a warm community atmosphere during your stay.

                      Owner info

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                      Many people familiar with the area cherish these increasingly rare bungalows. We are not trying to run a business, but are rather looking to find people who love Sanibel and the cottage as much as we, and particularly those who like to come back year after year.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      A home away from home for guests of our cottage.
