Great spot!!!

  • 5 of 5

We visited with our family last year and had a wonderful time. We rode bikes everywhere and had lots of fine dining at the local restaurants. Wonderful shelling on the beaches. A terrific place to get away from it all, take a deep breath and relax into the beauty if the scenery. Highly recommend it!

We loved staying in this beautiful home! The views of wildlife and plants all around the lake made it tempting to just stay in the house--/ but of course we went to sanibel to enjoy the beaches! We biked to everything. Lovely not to depend on a car nor watch tv at all .

Stunning setting

  • 5 of 5

I have been to Sanibel 2x with my family. Both times staying at this incredibly unique house. The views are fantastic from every window, and there are plenty of windows to look out of, whether it be the lagoon or just checking out the interesting plants and flowers. Traveling over the island on bicycle was fun, and much easier that trying to drive through town. The house is off the main street, so it is peaceful, quiet and very private. However, only a bike ride away we were able to be right in the heart of the shopping district. And the bike got us into the beaches much easier and trying to park a car.
