                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About the owner: We are long time Sanibel visitors that started visiting Sanibel by staying in condo's and eventually moved to renting a home. In 2008 we bought our first house on Sanibel as a second home and rental and now we have added this house in 2011 as a second home and rental. Guests often tell us that they can tell we stay in our homes because they are so well equipped. We make them very homey and comfortable with everything you need for a great vacation. We enjoy Sanibel and the opportunity to share our homes with many wonderful people.

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                      We bought this home because it first and foremost has a wonderful West End location Very close to the beach! The floor plan is great with loads of space in almost 1,800 sq feet of actual living space. For example the Master Bedroom is 14 ft x 18 ft, very spacious and comfortable plus of course, has a master bath and large walk-in closet. Virtually the entire home has a beautiful hardwood floor and is open and airy with high ceilings. A centerpiece of the home is the 12 ft x 24 ft covered lanai overlooking the large screened pool and pool deck. The lanai has a comfortable sitting area and a table seating 6 with a kitchen pass through window for convenience. Guests love watching TV while enjoying being outdoors! The pool is heated of course and has a sitting bench. The back yard is private and tropical.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The most unique benefits to our home are the very short distance to the beach and the wonderful lanai and pool area.
