Sanibel is home to artists, writers, creative people, intellectuals, and down-home islanders. The tourists are international and from Canada and the US.

Year Purchased: 1997
About the owner: In case you can't tell, we love to have a good time and will take a chance with just about anything. We love Sanibel and that is clear in the way we maintain our property. We will make sure it is always clean, neat and in perfect shape for our guests to enjoy the island. We get to know you and supply a surprise gift package, suited just for you, upon arrival. You can call us at any time & we'll work to help fill your needs. I'd say we are definitely people-pleasers, especially for our guests.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, East End: Sanibel Island is a unique setting and has something for everyone. We bought this property 19 years ago & have been renting it ever since. We had hopes that Sanibel & Captiva Islands would not become commercialized. We were so right. It has zoning laws that prohibit any sort of theme that takes away from the olden-days feeling of island living & that 'old Florida' is still alive.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: 49 steps from a practically private beach. Picnic table & BBQ in larged treed backyard. East End/Lighthouse Point is the most desirable place to live on the island according to many. The easy on/off island location makes travel simple. Bike everywhere. Path a few steps away. Beach or Bay side of Gulf of Mexico a few minutes stroll. Fish on Lighhouse Point or get a ride on a boat on one of the many marinas. Sanibel Marina is a 10 minute walk from Seagrape. So much to do on our end of the island with none of the traffic on Middle or West Gulf. Easy on/off causeway to and from The Islands of Sanibel and Captiva.
