About Jane Veldman

This home is owned by two sisters. Our parents built the house in 1987 as their retirement dream home. Their children and 11 grandchildren have loved coming to Sanibel ever since.

Jane Veldman purchased this house in 1987

Why Jane Veldman chose Sanibel

SeaGull Estates is in a wonderful location. You will love the easy stroll to the beach, the bike trails in the surrounding areas and bird-watching from the back porch overlooking the pond. Favorite activities in the are include paddle boarding and kayaking at Tarpon Bay, walking and shelling on the beautiful beach and watching the sun set in the gulf.

What makes this house unique

Our house is located right next to the SeaGull Estates' heated pool, tennis courts and clubhouse. With such easy access, we have all the advantages of a large privately owned pool with none of the headaches.

The other homeowners in SeaGull Estates are wonderful, friendly neighbors, as anyone who has gone to one of the monthly Friday night cocktail parties at the Clubhouse can attest.

If you like to eat in, you will appreciate Bailey's grocery store a mile away. And if you are looking for good restaurants, our house is close to Traders, the Bean Coffee Shop, Timbers Grill and Bar and Over Easy to name just a few of our favorites.

Lovely Sanibel home in convenient location

  • 5 of 5

We rented in August and certainly enjoyed the home. It was conveniently located on Sanibel Island near the beach and close to other activities (which we definitely needed due to the red tide and thousands of dead fish on the beach - certainly unexpected, but mother nature is always in control) and restaurants. The house had everything we needed, as well as a lot of extras in the storage closet. And the location right next to the REALLY nice community pool was the vacation saver - we and the kids loved it. If we were to come back to Sanibel, we would rent again.

By far our favorite Sanibel property after visiting 4 years in a row!

  • 5 of 5

During our past visits to Sanibel, we always rented a condo on the beach. This time we rented Jane's home in SeaGull Estates and we couldn't have been happier. The home is clean, well kept and private. The location is just a short walk off the beach, steps to the pool and tennis court, and has a beautifully landscaped yard.

Jane and her family were very responsive both before and during our stay. If we return to Sanibel next year, we will definitely be contacting Jane about availability.

Another Sanibel happy time

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed everything about our two weeks on Sanibel, love the fact that the house is directly next to the pool and tennis courts...and, of course, just a short trip down the path across the street to play in the sand and shell...Sanibel is one of my favorite places and we will return.

A perfect home in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family could not have been happier! The home is beautifully maintained and decorated, the screened in porch was perfect for coffee in the morning and a cocktail in the afternoon and a great place to watch the rain when it came. Across the street from the beach and 4 steps from the pool it still had absolute privacy. One of the most relaxing vacations we've ever had. Best place on Sanibel!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic vacation. One of my favorite moments was opening the door to the storage shed and finding everything imaginable for fun in the sun! The proximity to the pool and beach and the lack of crowds on the island made the place feel like our own!
