Property description

This unit offers unobstructed, expansive views of the Gulf of Mexico; 2 bedrooms, 2 baths with private access for guest bedroom; PREFER WEEKLY RENTALS. Sanibel Arms is operated by on-site staff six days a week to meet and greet you and address any needs you may have during your stay. They will also reserve the unit for you and send you welcoming information.

Come vacation and relax at Sanibel. We are just minutes from the Causeway on sleepy East Gulf Drive and a short walk from the famed Sanibel Lighthouse. Our condominium complex offers a heated pool, docking privileges as well as full time on-site management to address all your needs. The clubhouse contains a library and computers/printer for your use. The complex also offers our guests on-site bike rentals and gas barbecues

Our guests will find a very private and handicapped accessible ground floor corner unit with glass and screen enclosed lanai. This immaculate unit was completely remodeled and reflects a beach style motif. Enhancing that overall theme, the unit incorporates ceramic tile and mural sea-scapes in the guest bedroom and bar area.

The unit is tiled throughout, provides a washer/dryer and has a TV in each room. The new kitchen boasts hard surface counter tops, cherry wood cabinets and all new appliances including a double door refrigerator with ice maker for your afternoon cocktails.

Each bathroom is fully tiled and provides hair dryers. Both bathroom shower enclosures are handicapped accessible and include hand rails and a shower chair, if needed. The master bedroom contains a king sized bed while the guest bedroom provides 2 twin beds and has private bathroom access. The dining area and lanai offer a gorgeous vista of the gulf, the pelicans and the dolphins. The unit is WIFI equipped and has a large screen satellite TV. Beach chairs, beach towels and an umbrella are also provided for your convenience.

Sanibel's exquisitely natural beach is just steps away from this unit for you to enjoy sandy walks, shelling, fishing and swimming in your own back yard. But there are also miles of biking trails to explore and the world renowned Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge as well as Captiva to visit. We hope you decide to come and be our guest here on beautiful Sanibel Island.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

About the owner: We have owned unit G-4 in Sanibel Arme since 1991. My home is in Greensboro, North Carolina. My wife and I are retired and try to visit Sanibel as ofter as we can to share the Sanibel experience with our children, grandkids and friends. Sanibel Arms lends itself to a family atmosphere and we look forward to mingling with the guests and owners during our stays. We are sure you will have a similar experience.

Why the Owner Chose Sanibel Arms:
Sanibel is one of the most desirable vacation spots in the U.S. Arguably the closest to a tropical island within the continental U.S. We also purchased the unit for its rental potential and because Sanibel Arms is a smaller complex that has many repeat guests which was attractive to us.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
When the weather is not perfect, (which is rare) we enjoy sitting on the lanai observing the gulf during a rain or thunder storm. At night the thunder brightens the sky like the 4th of July. In summer, the brief afternoon thunderstorms give way to beautiful cloud /sun formations not unlike photos I've seen of deep space shot by the Hubble Space telescope. Sounds like hyperbole but you need to see it to believe it. Recently while walking the beach we followed a dolphin not 10 feet from the shore as he cornered fish in the shallows and chased them onto the sand, similar to the Orca's technique when hunting seals. Amazing! We enjoy running/walking the beach in the afternoon and then sipping cocktails while watching the sunset at the waters' edge.
