About Mike Palmer

In my work, I travel the world, but Sanibel is by far the most uniquely tranquil, aesthetically pleasing, area I've ever visited

Why Mike Palmer chose Sanibel Island

Located 400 yards from our private beach, with magnificent shelling, this is one of the few single family homes on Sanibel that is licensed to lease for periods of less than 30 days.

What makes this house unique

No traffic lights, miles and miles of bike paths. Great shelling on our private beach. We supply bikes for free, along with beach chairs, blankets, coolers, beach toys for the kids.

Casual restaurants with fantastic food. Year round sunshine.

FANTASTIC Unit: Spacious with great location (and MANGOES!!)

  • 5 of 5

Sandy Bottom turned out to be an excellent choice for our trip. The property is very spacious with 4 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. The house and the kitchen are well stocked with all the essentials. The garden has several fruit trees and we couldn't have had enough of the delicious tropical mangoes from the same (even brought some home on the owner's suggestion). Location is fabulous with your own private beach with in walking distance (we tried to go to Bowman's beach one day and after the parking hassles there, appreciated this access even more). The owner Mike was very pleasant, greeted us personally and even gave the kids a tour of the garden at check in; he was very responsive to all our questions and allowed us a very late checkout with our late flight departure). We will definitely return to this place when visiting Sanibel again!!

Great place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for us to relax, catch our breath and unwind after a week at Disney! It was a special treat that Mike was there when we arrived, so we got to meet him. We enjoyed the beach, Ding Darling reserve, some great geocaching, and being able to spread out and have some quiet time. It was even nice to be able to cook "at home". The grand kids enjoyed shelling and seeing all the birds. The house is very nice, on a quiet street, was spotless and well equipped from the kitchen to linens to beach chairs and bikes. Mike is great to work with on the rental, and gave us great information on things to do and places to eat, and that was very helpful. I would absolutely recommend staying here!

Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time!! A very nice house with so many different areas for different activities! We enjoyed the ping pong table and we played board games:) Also, a good variety of books for the daughter that likes to read on the beach. It was great to be able to bring and enjoy dvd's so there was always something good to watch. The bed in the master bedroom was VERY comfortable!!! The house was a little older & not "perfect", but the pictures are correct and we loved it. The ONLY problem was that the can opener could only be worked by my husband. We're use to being beach front, but I gotta say that the private access that we had in the neighborhood was very close to the house, which was very important to us. A GREAT value and we would definitely stay there again! Thanks Mike=D
