About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bath open concept beach house, close to the beach

Stilted contemporary, casual beach goer's dream in Gulf Pines one lot back from the beach. This house has three bedrooms, two baths and open concept living/entertaining space. Each bedroom has its own private deck, although the upstairs decks provide a great opportunity for sunning in the afternoon. The house features all the amenities required for today’s casual living (air conditioning, heating, washer/dryer, internet/cable). The house was featured in Women’s Day Vacation Escapes in 1986 when it was built. We have attempted to maintain the comfort and simplicity required for a restful holiday escape when Sanibel beckons.

Escape from March and April!

  • 4 of 5

What an idyllic and restorative 2 months we spent in this home! It is perfectly situated on Sanibel - away from the crowds on Periwinkle Way, but accessible to the grocery store. It's easy biking distance to the Ding Darling Bird Refuge, and steps to a quiet gorgeous beach where shells abound. The Gulf Pines community has 2 sand and turf tennis courts (better than clay!) and an inclusive tennis playing community. Every evening at sunset, the friendly residents gather on the beach to bid adieu to another wonderful day on Sanibel. The recent house renovations are very well done and the beds are comfortable! The kitchen appliances are all new and the pots and pans are nicer than what I have at home! The caretaker was extremely responsive to all of our needs and the owner did everything to ensure that we were happy. We're looking forward to returning next spring!

Escape from February

  • 4 of 5

We spent a happy month in this virtually all-new house. The kitchen and bathrooms have been tastefully rehabbed; there are new furnishings everywhere; The house is also well laid out and well situated: There are living areas up and down stairs convenient for families. The house is just minutes from the beach but very private thanks to the greenery that surrounds it and the other houses in the little community. It's the perfect vacation home. Perhaps the best feature is the last: owners who do everything they can to make your stay memorable. It certainly worked for us.
