Car: Not Necessary

Sanibel is home to artists, writers, creative people, intellectuals, and down-home islanders. The tourists are international and from Canada and the US. We are a friendly group and you will find help and politeness everywhere you go. There's lots to do on our islands of Sanibel and Captiva. It can be relaxing with lots to do for kids and adults. It's romantic and family-friendly.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: We love Sanibel and that is clear in the way we maintain our property. We will make sure it is always clean, neat and in the best shape for our guests to enjoy. Once we get to know you, we'll provide a surprise gift package suited just for you upon your arrival. You can call us at any time & we'll work to help fill your needs. We live 30 minutes away so we are here for you.

Why the Owner Chose Sanibel Island, FL, USA:
Sanibel Island is a unique setting and has something for everyone. We bought this property in 1994 & have been renting it ever since. Since we are so close to the beach and on the East End of the Island, we have a unique location and large lot. Very private and cozy.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Live with the native islanders on a residential street. Five minute walk to a practically private beach. The East End & Lighthouse Point is considered to be the most desirable place on the island according to many. The easy on/off island location makes travel simple. Bike everywhere. Stroll down the little wooden bridge at the end of our road & watch the dolphins. Fish at nearby pier & grille your catch at home.
