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 we ensure that it is kept in excellent condition and is truly a home away from home.
