Golfing, tennis, biking, and sailing are a few of the activities that you can enjoy while staying here, as well as the fine restaurants and fun shopping!

About Richard Gross
I am a "hands-on" owner. Though I live in Baltimore Md, I visit Sanibel several times a year. Always fixing, cleaning, and re-organizing. There is a local rental agent nearby for key pick-up and for any issues or concerns that may arise. I am also always available by cell phone to answer any questions. Very interested in having a completely satisfied guest.
Richard Gross purchased this House in 1999
Why Richard Gross chose Sanibel Island
Like Sanibel used to be. Small complex on the beach--freshly decorated. A place to relax and enjoy the tropical setting..and walk, or bike, or tour.

A wonderful introduction to Sanibel....beautiful ocean view from the porch and a bike ride to town. Perfect for two people!
Denise, thanks for your nice review. Please come back for another wonderful vacation.
December in Sanibel
The cottage was cozy, comfortable, pleasant and was equipped with all that we needed. We did have to rent beach chairs from Island rental but they delivered and picked them up for $10. It is a short stroll to the beach and the beach is pleasant. There was a bit of red tide going on but was not problematic. We had little issues with Noseeums or mosquitoes. We brought our small dog and he enjoyed his stay, too so this is a plus for this location if you travel with your pet.
Thanks for your review. Always have issues with beach chairs. With the salt air, they have a short lifespan. Thanks again for your business.
Our stay was wonderful. The cottage had everything we needed. Very happy with the accommodations except for the shower. There was mold and crud around the caulk of the shower door. I did not enjoy getting into it. There is no excuse for allowing this to get that way and expect people to use it. Beside that, we had a wonder time and will be back next year.
Lisa, thanks for your review, and hope you come back. I have rarely had a cleaning problem, after owning this cottage for almost 20 years. At any time you could have called my local agent, Royal Shell, to come back and clean/repair the shower area--and they are very fast to respond. I will call them today to take care of this. Hope to hear from you in the future.
We fell in love with the cottage and it's location. It was so peaceful and literally only steps from the beach. Can't wait to go back!
Glad you enjoyed my newly decorated and refurbished cottage on the beach. Look forward to having you as a guest again. Thanks
White Caps 3
The wife, Strawberry (our border collie) and I spent three great weeks at White Caps 3! Great, great view of beach and ocean from screened porch! This one bedroom cottage is small - old style Sanibel -but was perfect for us! Very nice private compound with only eight one story units - almost the whole beach to ourselves! Sunsets were gorgeous! Make sure you try the biking the refuge areas and take the tram tour of Darling National Wildlife Refuge! We will be back again...
An Ideal Spot on the Beach
The best part of our stay was the fantastic feeling of being able to walk out the door and right onto the beach--such a luxury! We strolled every morning and again at sunset. The cottage is clustered in a little "neighborhood" which had a friendly atmosphere. While the house proved comfortable for us, some of the furnishings and decor looked a little worn. Still, we have no regrets and it made a nice base for trips throughout the Sanibel, Captiva, and Fort Myers areas.
Appreciate the nice comments...have accomplished further updates since that time of review, almost a year ago.
One of the last remaining 'Old Sanibel' complexes--right on the beach. Only nine units in a tropical setting--facing the Gulf. Convenient to shops, movie theatre, supermarkets, etc.
