Property description

Tucked away in the exclusive Palm Acres subdivision of only 5 cul-de-sacs of homes (in the Shell Pt. Community), the setting has been described by other renters and visitors as BREATH TAKING...with canal views of the Caloosahatchee River and only mangroves across the canal...perfect for your VACATION GET-AWAY. Enjoy watching the DOLPHINS and MANATEE feeding or playing, diving PELICANS and birdlife, and schools of jumping fish. Take a STROLL along the waters edge of Shell Pt. peninsula; a SWIM in the inviting, heated pool; toss in your FISHING line from the dock; or LOUNGE on the comfortable lanai.

The one-level home is stunningly updated and well-appointed with all the COMFORTS of home. Hardwood floors are throughout and compliment the warm, tasteful decor. The living room is centered between the dining room and the game room (with pool table and stretching/exercise area). Adjacent to the dining room is a stunning kitchen with cherry cabinets, granite counters, stainless appliances as well as a cozy family room...ALL WITH VIEWS of the water and walkout to the lanai/pool. The home offers a split bedroom floor plan. The master bedroom also walks onto the lanai/pool area and includes laundry off the master bath. There are 2 additional bedrooms-- one with queen bed and ensuite bathroom, and the other furnished with office desk and twin bed.

The LOCATION is IDEAL...just MINUTES to SANIBEL and FT. MYERS beaches as well as Bunche Beach with preserve trails and canoe park, (the Woodland's) GOLF COURSE, outlet mall, restaurants, shopping, and library...and approximately 25-30 minutes to RSW airport. The neighborhood offers miles of pleasant BIKING or WALKING, including approximately a 2 mile path along the water's edge of Shell Pt. peninsula...another great spot for DOLPHIN or MANATEE watching.
This home has been meticulously maintained. As it is our 'home', we are requesting renters who would maintain it as we do. NO SMOKERS OR PETS.

TRULY A HOME FOR PRIVACY and TRANQUIL ENJOYMENT of YOUR VACATION.

World renowned sugar sand beaches of Sanibel Island are just minutes away; as well as the colorful beach front restaurants and shops of Ft. Myers Beach; and canoe park at Bunche Beach.

If bird or wild life watching is your passion, this SW Florida location offers some of the best...Ding Darling on Sanibel, 6-Mile Cypress Slough and Lakes Park in Ft Myers, Koreshan State Park in Bonita Springs, Naples Zoo.

One of SW Florida's best Farmer's Markets is located nearby in stunning Lakes Park every Friday (Nov-April). The park also offers 275 acreas of walking and biking trails as well as conoe rentals. Several other Farmer's Markets are just minutes away as well.

Enjoy the art crawls or music crawls of downtown Ft. Myers as well as the numerous weekend art shows of Sanibel, Cape Coral, Ft. Myers, Estero, and Bonita Springs. Can't miss the sand sculpture contest or Shrimp Fest on Ft. Myers Beach!

If you're up for a short drive, the Florida Everglades are about 1.5 hours away. Other great day trips would be to see the Ringling Bros Circus Museum or Dali Museum in Sarasota, Bush Gardens in Tampa, infamous South Beach in Miami, the quaint artistic community of Matlacha...known as 'little Key West'. Orlando/Disneyland is 3.5 hours away.

If you bring/rent a bicycle, the ride over the Sanibel Causeway is stunning. Ride for miles adjacent to Summerlin Rd. on it's designated bike/pedestrian path...connecting to other bicycle trails and The Twins baseball stadium.
