Property description

With water views overlooking the 5,000 acre Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, we think Sanibel on the Preserve is a perfect vacation home. A large, heated pool and deck offer a private oasis, and Bowman’s Beach – the premier beach on Sanibel – is just a 15-min. walk or short bike ride away. There’s ample beach parking, too. The house has a comfortable, open design with cathedral ceilings and great views of the bayou and the nature preserve - great for nature lovers. In fact, we've been told there's better birding and animal sightings in our back yard than anywhere else on the island. The large kitchen, which is open to the living room, dining room and eat-in kitchen, will delight the cook in your family. A window lined lanai serves as the dining room. Comfortable for a couple but easily accommodates guests and family as well with 3 guest bedrooms and 3 full baths. Sanibel on the Preserve feels like a retreat, yet you’re 10 minutes from Sanibel’s shops and restaurants.

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Bob is a directing manager in a small healthcare company specializing in obesity management and lifestyle health. Ariel teaches English to foreign college students.

Why the Owner Chose Heron's Landing, Sanibel, FL, USA:
We fell in love with this place immediately when we saw it. The house is wide open with lots of light and high ceilings, and the location is a nature lover's paradise. We see countless species of birds in our yard and in the mangroves across the bayou and other wildlife sightings, too. Because our land backs up to the 5,000 acre nature preserve, this house feels like a peaceful retreat, but we're just minutes from stores and restaurants. We're also close to Bowman's beach, which offers miles of protected shoreline. The house holds the two of us comfortably when we're here alone, but there's also plenty of space when our kids and grandkids come to visit. We have had some of our best family vacations ever here. The pool is a great family hang out space, and it's long enough for me to swim laps, too. We think this is the best place ever!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Nature sightings, private pool, 20 foot cathedral ceilings with an open floor plan and plenty of natural light, minutes to on one of the nicest beaches we've ever seen, miles of bike paths, great kayaking.
