About Marjorie Lincoln

My husband and I have been renting homes on Sanibel for a few years now. And we have become smitten with it. There is no place like it.

So at the end of 2010 we bought our Hemingway Haven. Some of our favorite things have always been the ocean, beaches, rivers, sunsets, wildlife, fishing and golfing. And that is what we have in our new place. We have found the perfect location and perfect home for our getaway time from Wisconsin.

Marjorie Lincoln purchased this house in 2010

Fantastic Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

John and Marj's Sanibel Island residence is the best of all worlds. Isolated from tourists but still close to the beach, it is evocative of Old Florida and yet completely “wired,” featuring an airy, open-design floorplan with three private bedrooms. We thoroughly enjoyed all it had to offer, including the lovely pool and lanais deck, original artwork, eat-in kitchen, Weber grill and cable TV. Of course, nothing beats the private beach with some of the best shelling in the world and spectacular, panoramic sunsets.
