Car: Recommended

The enchantment of Sanibel Island mesmerizes its guests so seemlessly that one-time visits are as rare as a Florida panther. There is so much to do here, particularly for those who admire nature and wildlife. Sanctuaries, like J.N. 'Ding' Darling, the West Sanibel River Preserve, and the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation can be explored by foot, bike and/or kayak. You can spend a couple weeks just on the secluded beach (just an eight minute walk) shelling, fishing, swimming, sun tanning and admiring Sanibel's glorious wildlife. There are boat tours, like the Sanibel Thriller, deep sea fishing adventures, water sports, art shows, antiques, boutiques, thrift stores, nature stores and museums.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2003

About: We have been dividing our time between Sanibel and Chicago for over thirty years. In 1976, we found Sanibel only after we learned that our once preferred destinations were already booked. A few days later, we realized that we had found our favorite home away from home. After thirty years of vacationing on Sanibel, we bought our Sanibel dream home in 2003.

Why Private Homes:
We love this place because it allows us to enjoy most everything Sanibel & Captiva have to offer. Captiva's beautiful views and fine dining are only seven miles to the west, while Sanibel's shopping and restaurants are only four miles to east. The beautiful Gulf of Mexico is everywhere on Sanibel, but we all agree that our secluded beach is one of Sanibel's finest.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We're so blessed with so much nature around us at Ibis Shores. We have exotic birds feeding on the shore of the Sanibel River nearly every day, and the bald eagles' nest is so close that they often fly overhead. It's remarkable to hear them call out to one another. Every day, many of our neighbors (including full-time residents, snowbirds, and visitors) congregate on the beach with a few bottles of wine and watch the glorious sunset.
