Property description

Sanibel is an island that is 1/3 natural wild life refuge with a huge number of beautiful birds. There are bike paths the whole length of the island and our dock looks over the lovely canal that meanders into the Bay.

We have a number of bedrooms and sitting rooms so that everyone can relax at their leisure inside and out...by the pool, on the screened proch, on the deck....Watch TV in one room, read in another or work on the computer.

Beautiful house with generous public space and bedrooms tucked away in an island tropical paradise.

We have a boat dock where you can watch the dolphins and manaatees play, fish from and keep your boat on...the canal goes straight out to the bay....

You can sit by the pool all day and when the sun goes down barbecue your dinner and eat on the long back porch. If the evening is cool, you can sit by the fire and watch our Satellite TV or curl up and read in any of the 3 sitting rooms....

Or ride one of our 5 bikes to the huge beaches on Sanibel with their world famous shells and watch the giant pelicans dive for fish. We sometimes take a bottle of wine and bike over to the beach to watch the sunset...

We have 2 kayaks for exploring the mangroves and getting close photos of the wonderful birds nesting near the water, or the manatees slowly making their way to the bay....

Sanibel is a very special place where time is slow and life is relaxed....many wonderful restaurants and shops, you can rent jet skis, wind surfers and para gliders but come back to our hidden paradise at the end of the day and it is quiet and peaceful.

This is our home and we take good care of it...It is a place our family gathers for fun and relaxation...we know you will enjoy it and take good care of it too!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We are a American retired couple who are British as well. We brought our children up in the UK and they currently live there now.....so we have our feet planted firmly on both continents!

Why the Owner Chose The Sanctuary (Sanctuary, Sanibel, FL, USA):
We bought this house for the family to get away from the English winters for a few weeks and of course now the children and their families are here every winter ( and so are we)...The house allows for the whole family to have fun together and is also cosy enough for the 2 of us to curl up by the fireplace and read! There is so much for us to do here that we find we always want to stay an extra few weeks!
