Sanibel Island is a barrier island just off the southwest coast of Florida by Fort Myers. Sanibel is about 12 miles long and 4 miles wide, and is known around the world for its fabulous shelling beaches. Due to Sanibel Island's unique geographical orientation, lying East to West instead of North to South, it acts as a scoop and gathers seashells along its beaches. Throughout the year, thousands of visitors come to enjoy Sanibel's beaches and hunt for that special seashell. Sanibel has an average temperature of about 75 degrees. While Sanibel Island is a wildlife refuge in and of itself, over 60% of the island is protected wildlife preserves. There are over 26 miles of bike trails and over 17 miles of beautiful beaches.

Why Private Homes:
We think this is the most beautiful spot on the island, with its village-like setting, convenient access to the Marina, General Store and wonderful restaurants.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love to watch the wide variety of wildlife that lives around the house. We also enjoy fishing in the Bay and grilling the days catch on our outdoor grill. It's our favorite place to 'get away from it all', and we're sure you will feel the same. Its a true Island Experience.
