Del Sega house description

Welcome to our charming house on beautiful Sanibel Island. We would like to invite you to take some time to relax and enjoy all that Sanibel has to offer while staying at our home away from home.

Located alongside the luxurious Sanctuary golf course, our house is close to beaches, restaurants, shops, golf and the world famous J.N. “Ding” Darling wildlife sanctuary. Our home has been totally refurbished and is available for rental by the calendar month.

There are 3 double bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms, which will sleep up to six people. Quietly situated in an acre of garden, the house has a private heated swimming pool, which is fully caged for your comfort and has all the amenities you would expect including a fully equipped kitchen and separate utility area, 60' plasma TV, Xbox, Xfinity cable tv and US/Euro Blu-ray/DVD players, master bedroom with its own lanai and 50' plasma TV plus ultra fast broadband wireless internet so you can work or stay in touch with friends and family via the web.

While having a car is recommended, all facilities including Bowman's beach are an easy bike ride away. We have 5 adult bikes plus a bike trailer for your use. We also supply guests a cool box, beach chairs and sun umbrella.

Home away from home: The house is spacious and modern while retaining the charm of an island cottage. We have just completed a total refurbishment so everything is new and up to date for you to enjoy during your dream vacation.

Sanibel city ordinance requires monthly rentals for homes on Sanibel. However, In May-Nov. we can 'blank out' two weeks of the month if required and only charge $1500 per week for a two week stay. Please don't request short-term lets.

Discounts are available for rentals of two or more months.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About the owner: We live in the south of England with our two children. We've been regular vistors to Florida since the 1980's and fell in love with Sanibel while visiting relatives in Fort Myers. We are now semi-retired, which enables us to visit Sanibel more frequently of late.Our ambition is to make all our guests feel welcome to our home and that they leave feeling they have enjoyed their stay and would like to return.

                      Why the Owner Chose Del Sega:
                      We have travelled extensively across the USA, Europe and Asia with our family; however we felt at home on Sanibel as soon as we travelled over the causeway! From the moment we saw our property in its fabulous acre lot, we fell in love with it. However, the property was run-down and badly needed re-modelling but we saw the potential to create a perfect vacation home for ourselves and for occasional rental guests. The property is well situated to access all the facilities of both Sanibel and Captiva. We especially enjoy the tropical breezes that cool the house, lazing in the heated pool, sitting on the lanai, viewing the amazing wildlife and gently cycling to Bowman's beach or Blind Pass to swim in the sea and watch the sun go down.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      This is our home and is very well equipped. As we primarily use the home ourselves and normally rent to monthly renters we ensure that it is kept in excellent condition and is truly a home away from home.
