Property description

Newly renovated 5 bedroom house professionally decorated with clean modern aesthetic located in the artists enclave of the East End. The home has an open loft like feel. Located on only one of three streets on the island where you can look from beach to bay and walk between the two at island pace in less than 5 minutes. Great location if you are looking for an upscale house with easy access to the beach and bay along with the bike paths. You will not need to cross any streets or properties to access the beach as it is at the end of our lane. The beach is empty most times of the year as there are no hotels or public parking on the lane. Sanibel is known for it's powder like sand, beautiful Caribbean like water and extensive shells. It is very common to site dolphins, view starfish and sand dollars.

The East End is loved by locals for it’s quiet, reserved feel…a trip back to old Sanibel. There is no traffic on the East End even in high season. The East end is the narrowest part of Sanibel and contains the old lighthouse. The house is 5 minutes drive from the causeway providing easy on off access for going to the Tanger outlets, Airport or trips into Ft. Myers or Naples. Walk to Breakfast at Sanibel’s most popular breakfast spot, the Lighthouse Cafe, or walk up to Rosie’s for lunch or convenience item or order an ice cream at Pinocchio’s ranked by National Geographic Explorer as one of the top ten ice cream shops in the Southeast.

The house has all new luxurious linens and furnishings in it’s 4 bedrooms and 2 baths. There are flat screen TV’s and a stereo with a IPod/MP-3 doc. The hot tub cascades into the heated pool and is surrounded by tropical plantings creating a serene Island feel. Cool off in the enclosed shower adjacent to the pool area. Enjoy breakfast on the front patio or dinner in the screened lanai overlooking the pool area or dine around the pool.

The house is equipped with beach chairs, umbrella and beach toys. Play basketball in the driveway, swim or jump on a bike as the house sits next to the bike path. Sanibel is extremely relaxing and the home has the amenities of a hotel with the upside of being in your own private oasis.

Please note that Sanibel only allows 28 day rentals for homes. We abide by this regulation.

Thank you for your interest in our home!
