Property description

White Caps Cottage 8 is a unique 'Old Sanibel Cottage' situated directly on the beach and the Gulf of Mexico... steps, literally, to the beach and Gulf. Enjoy sunsets and evening breezes from the screened in porch or the cozy comfort of the open living / dinning room. One of a kind island experience with days of nothing but sand, shells, sun and an occasional dolphin in front of you and the gentle sound of the surf at night. Old Sanibel Paradise.

Car: Recommended

Sanibel is world renown for sea shell collecting with a Sea Shell Museum right only minutes away from the cottage.

Tarpon fishing right off the beach, with Dolphins playing and the occasional Manatee swimming down the shore line to.

Wonderful restaurants for every taste, and fresh sea food available to take home to cook on the BBQ.

Aside from the Gulf with boating, swimming, shelling, and relaxing on the beach, there are Golf courses, biking, hiking and local theater to attend.

Or, Dine and Dance at Traditions Restaurant and Inn only a short walk up the beach from the cottage, or have meet up with everyone after a day on the beach at the Sand Bar for drinks and dinner.

If you want to go off Island to explore you can check out Ft. Myers for Edison's Home and Museum and historic downtown Ft. Myers... or, go over to Pine Island to see the famous Tarpon Lodge and go across the street from the lodge to see ancient native Calusa Indian Shell Mounds and the Randall Research Center.

and so much more....

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: A long time Sanibel lover and White Caps Cottages owners. We enjoy sharing our cottage with those who are looking for a unique beach cottage experience.

Why the Owner Chose White Caps Cottages:
We are beach people. The sand and shelling with family is our idea of Paradise. White Caps 8 is our little piece of a Sanibel Heaven.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Respite from the daily push of life- Sunsets from the porch and living / dining room- A view of the Gulf interrupted only by sea oats, sea grapes, Mr. T, or resident gopher turtle, cabbage palms and, yes, sand, shells, and the lapping Gulf waves. If that's not enough for you there are all kinds of activities from shelling to shopping to do.
