Why The Owner chose Sanibel Island

We think this is the most beautiful spot on the island, with its village-like setting, convenient access to the Marina, General Store and wonderful restaurants.

What makes this house unique

We love to watch the wide variety of wildlife that lives around the house. We also enjoy fishing in the Bay and grilling the days catch on our outdoor grill. It's our favorite place to 'get away from it all', and we're sure you will feel the same. Its a true Island Experience.

AMAZING vacation spot for families and dogs

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 2 children and our chocolate labrador just spent a week at this property. It is so charming, clean, and has everything you need for a beach vacation. We were able to dock our boat right on the property dock, walk across the road to the beach, and swim every minute of the day in the pool. It's within walking distance to a general store and a few restaurants too. We saw manatees, dophins, fish and dozens of differnt birds during our visit, right in the bay! We will be back for SURE! Property manager Chip was amazing too... helped with everything we needed.

Views to die for!

  • 5 of 5

beautiful house, UNBEATABLE location, and fabulous yard. Our family spent time fishing on the dock, (Castaways marina is right next door for bait, supplies, and advice.), walking for miles on the beach, kayaking the bay and bayou, and swimming in our private heated pool. there is even a fire pit and Chip brought over a supply of firewood to use. We had the most relaxing and serene trip in years.

Bayfront Bliss!!

  • 5 of 5

Imagine waking up to an osprey's call, and seeing beautiful shore and water birds frolicking out on the bay, all from the comfort of your cozy King bed looking out your sliding glass door... Excited to begin another day in paradise, you walk with a cup of coffee out on to your dock, and are entertained by schools of mullet jumping out of the water while being pursued by a dolphin...

This was our experience nearly every morning! We have been coming down to Sanibel for years, and the Island House has now become one of our favorite places to stay... the house is very comfortable, decorated in a fun tropical/Asian way, and with a very well-supplied kitchen! My mother-in-law was able to cook a traditional Swedish Christmas meal for us, and loved how easy it was to do there! The many decks and seating areas made relaxing outdoors so comfortable, with our favorite places to relax being by the pool or out on the dock! The location of the Island House is perfect; being on the bay provides beautiful water (bird and fish) views, and a short walk to the beach provides a grand Gulf view with beautiful shells galore! The neighborhood is wonderful, with 3 great restaurants and a small grocery store all within walking distance! Additionally, Chip, the owner/manager, was wonderful to work with; providing helpful recommendations about the area as well as responding quickly by text when his assistance was needed. We will definitely be back!!

Island House: A Tropical Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Island House brings to mind these descriptive words: relaxing, quiet, peaceful, tropical, and PERFECT.

Chip has done an amazing job landscaping this tropical oasis. The house is completely stocked with anything and everything a traveler might need. As for the house, pool, and grounds - FAR superior to the photos on the website.

The location is ideal. The view of the bay from the back deck and the lanai is incredible. The pool is heated to a perfect 82 degrees. What fun to watch the shorebirds on the sandbars during low tide. Pink flamingoes were regular visitors. We watched the ospreys go fishing. Directly across the street is beach access to one of the finest shelling beaches in North America, with unmatched sunsets, too. We also enjoyed walking across the bridge to Turner Beach on Captiva. We walked for miles and encountered only a few people; dolphin sightings were a regular occurrence.

The Santiva General Store is about 1 block away; right around the corner is the Sunset Grill - GREAT breakfasts with pancakes to die for and fantastic dinners at reasonable prices.

We have already rebooked for next year. Thanks so much to Chip and family for sharing such a warm and wonderful vacation home!

Sanibel Island is a barrier island just off the southwest coast of Florida by Fort Myers. Sanibel is about 12 miles long and 4 miles wide, and is known around the world for its fabulous shelling beaches. Due to Sanibel Island's unique geographical orientation, lying East to West instead of North to South, it acts as a scoop and gathers seashells along its beaches. Throughout the year, thousands of visitors come to enjoy Sanibel's beaches and hunt for that special seashell. Sanibel has an average temperature of about 75 degrees. While Sanibel Island is a wildlife refuge in and of itself, over 60% of the island is protected wildlife preserves. There are over 26 miles of bike trails and over 17 miles of beautiful beaches.
