Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

Why the Owner Chose Sanibel Island, FL, USA:
We started renting this lovely cottage in 1985...fell in love with the cottage and Sanibel and in 1993 when it came available to purchase we didn't hesitate. It has always represented freedom, peace and a real vacation to us.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Every morning and evening we would take the short walk to the beach and totally feel revived and relaxed. Loved the southern exposure and big sliding patio doors that would always allow the cottage to be bright and cheery. This place will up lift any spirit. Perfect!
