  • Great vacation home!!

    "Our stay was incredible. The view is amazing and so much to see including manatee and numerous fish and birds. The house is beautiful and has great furniture and the beds are super comfortable. The owners were very accommodating and made sure everything was up to par. Thanks again for a great stay and a wonderful vacation. The vibe on the island is so relaxing and everyone is polite and nice. The Lighthouse cafe was my favorite place for breakfast!! Worth the wait!"

  • Wonderful House

    "This is a wonderful home in a great location. My husband and I stayed with our three children. We loved the pool and all of the interesting trees and vegetation around it. The beach is just a few steps away. Since there aren't any condos very close by, the beach wasn't crowded at all. It was nice to be out on the beach in the evening so close to the lighthouse. The owner was extremely helpful throughout our stay if we had any questions or issues come up."

  • Excellent Location, Sanibel East End Beaches

    "A good house at the quiet East End of Sanibel. Excellent access (short walk on quiet road) to a fabulous beach. Very nice pool and spa in the back yard. Very easy bike ride to the shopping and restaurant areas of the island. House is sized just right for two families of four. Four bedrooms and two baths on the main upper level. Clean and up to date. Everything works. Photos & listing give an accurate impression of the property. Lower level, downstairs, has an additional bedroom, small bath, seating, ping pong, and kitchenette. It's bright with lots of sliding glass doors and is quite separate from the upstairs but feels a little funky for an adult couple. It would be great for teens. Walk-out directly to the pool area. The owners' rep, Tim at Sanibel Conceirge, gave superb and responsive service throughout our rental experience. Just across the street: Lighthouse Cafe with "World's best breakfast", Sporty Seahorse is an excellent island shop, and fab ice-cream at Pinocchio's. We greatly enjoyed our two-family vacation here on Sanibel."

Private Homes Travel Tips

Sanibel Island Vacation Rentals: Experience the Waves

Nestled within the Gulf of Mexico is Sanibel. This island waits beyond Florida's western borders, connected only through a massive bridge. It's formed to sand and lush forests, creating a reputation without peer. Families wanting a diverse adventure will find much to celebrate here. It's small town charm sprawled across tropic scenes. It will amaze. And Sanibel Island vacation rentals will do the same: offering the comfort you need for the cost you can afford. The sea is now accessible.

Sanibel Island Cottages: The Importance of Location

There is little logic in seeking out Sanibel and then staying on the mainland. You want a secluded experience, not another hotel. You don't want the causeway to become a barrier, separating you from all you love. That is why you need Sanibel Island beach homes. These convenient alternatives will allow you to remain amongst the wild. You will not have to leave. You will instead just have modern amenities within natural beauty. It's a vacation without worry.

Sanibel Island Beach Homes: Find Your Thrills

After languishing within Sanibel Island cottages, you'll then wish to experience all the joys beyond. There are many. Begin the morning by biking the Rabbit Road Trail, where its namesake creatures will appear in the early hours (as well as an assortment of birds and other wildlife). Let the Sanibel Island Cruise Line take you into the waves, providing scuba diving and dolphin watching. The Tarpon Bay Explorers will lead you through the National Wildlife Refuge, offering pristine views and creature sightings. Take a break from the sun with the Islander Trading Post, perfect for antiquing. And then drive to the Big M Casino to test your fate. It's the fun you need.

Sanibel Island Vacation Rentals: Play, Always

A trip is meant to be enjoyed. Now it can be. With Sanibel Island cottages, you'll be near the adventure and away from the frustrations.
