Property description

This is a monthly rental property. Please note, no nightly or weekly stays. In addition, the home generally rents on a first day of month to last day of month. Months that overlap are often not possible at all, or are only possible with a surcharge.

Toucan House is a 1900 square feet, spacious home with a unique character. It is a ten minute walk from Bowman's beach with no streets to cross, located in a low density, tropical, secluded, and upscale community on the far west and 'quiet' end of Sanibel. It is just a three minute walk from Ding Darling nature preserve.

The house, situated on an oversized and nicely landscaped lot, has two bedrooms and a large sleeping loft with its own porch. There are two bathrooms. The living room has a soaring cathedral ceiling, a fireplace, and a large lanai (called a porch in most parts of the world). The kitchen is brand new, sparkling white and bright, and the bathrooms have been renovated. All furniture was purchased recently and everything in the house is of good quality. We have made every effort to provide anything you can imagine needing on a vacation.

This is truly a home where you and your family can relax and enjoy the beauties of nature and Sanibel Island in complete peace and tranquillity. Please No Smoking. Pets considered on an individual basis. Non-refundable pet fee required. Amount varies depending on size, breed of pet. Please inquire as to specifics.

MONTHLY RENTALS ONLY (this is a Sanibel law, not my preference but I do abide the law). Very competitive rental rates. We do not think you will find a home of this size, this close to the beach and with these amenities at better pricing. If you do, and can prove it, we will consider matching the pricing.

Car: Recommended

Toucan House is located on the quiet west end of Sanibel Island, closer to Captiva Island. The neighborhood is very nicely landscaped and dog friendly (pooches must be on a leash and cleaned up after). No noise or disruption can be heard and only 15 minutes from all living necessities. There is a short cut to the beach behind the house which goes along finely packed sand fitness trail: the walk takes 8 minutes. The back end of Ding Darling is 10 minutes on foot in the other direction.
