Private Homes house description

Surround yourself with sunshine, seclusion and the sound of the sea.
This lovely, cheerful 2 bedroom 2 bath cottage has old Florida Charm ...and is newly updated.
Situated on a private, sleepy lane it is only a 2 to 3 minute walk to the beach. The Cottage has all the amenities of home WiFi, 3 TV's, DVR, washer and dryer, granite kitchen and dishwasher. Wake to the sound of the waves breaking, perhaps a visit from an Egret, Heron or Ibis all while enjoying fresh brewed coffee on the privacy of your own sunny deck.
This Sunny Shell Basket cottage is one of the very few homes that can rent for less than a full week on Sanibel Island. Comfortable, charming and cozy…not your typical vacation rental. For those who are looking to get away, enjoy each other, your family, nature, and the serenity… stay at Sunny Shell Basket Cottage.

          Lovely Cottage/home on quite private lane with short walk to beach, bars and restaurants.

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1993

          Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
          We started renting this lovely cottage in 1985...fell in love with the cottage and Sanibel and in 1993 when it came available to purchase we didn't hesitate. It has always represented freedom, peace and a real vacation to us.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Every morning and evening we would take the short walk to the beach and totally feel revived and relaxed. Loved the southern exposure and big sliding patio doors that would always allow the cottage to be bright and cheery. This place will up lift any spirit. Perfect!
