Property description

Tropical ground level beach home with heated pool in quiet residential neighborhood on large private lot. The white sand beach is directly across the street.
Call for last minute specials. 28 DAY MINIMUM - DO NOT ASK FOR EXCEPTIONS.
Come sit by the pool and check your email from the shaded pool area. Or pedal through the tropical neighborhoods and see the gardens. Watch the waves roll in and join everyone for the sunset on the beach. Nicely remodeled kitchen, DR, LR, FR and baths! The house is furnished with high quality furniture - this is NOT a 'put your feet on the furniture' type of place. It is for those with a desire for a clean luxurious home away from home. As we like to cook, the kitchen is very well equipped so you are not frustrated with dull knives, a lack of pots or pans, missing linens or kitchen basics.

The property is named Las Ondas, meaning The Waves. Features: one level accessible home (2 steps up to the front door), wireless internet, white sand beach, birding, fishing, shelling and swimming. There are four bedrooms with beds (1 king, 2 with queens, & one with two twins).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: The owners are IT consultants who like to get away and relax on this tropical island. Keep up with your email with the high speed wireless internet connection in the well equipped office with laser printer/ scanner/ copier. Enjoy gardening, birding and the wildlife. Visit CROW and learn about the animals they rescue.

Why the Owner Chose Murex Lakes, Sanibel, FL, USA:
The owner's wife came to Sanibel years ago in 1970. She loves this island as there is so much to do: shelling, birding, fishing, swimming, and boating. It is so much fun to walk on the beach and see the dolphins swimming along the shore watching the people. We bought here for all these reasons plus there is great outlet shopping in Fort Myers Gulf Town Center (near the Ft Myers, FL airport), Estero, FL at Coconut Point and the closer Tanger Outlets on Summerlin Road. Meet interesting people from all over the world who come here to enjoy our tropical island.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
If you're up early, watch out for the flock of egrets which walk around the house at 7 am looking for breakfast. The dark colored ones are the babies. Pelicans and sometimes rosette spoonbills fly overhead. Humming birds visit the flowers around the pool. Walk across the street to the beach and join everyone watching the sunrise or sunset on the beach. Finish the day with a swim in your pool and dinner out.
