Gorgeous, renovated, private home steps to the beach.
About Robin Dennis
My husband and I are a young couple that decided to take the plunge and buy a piece of paradise while we were young. We are world travelers who have visited over 30 countries, but always find our hearts drawn back to Sanibel.
Robin Dennis purchased this House in 2015
Why Robin Dennis chose Sanibel
My family has been coming to Sanibel for over 50 years (yes, before there was a causeway)! We believe Sanibel is a special refuge, and a place for restoration and relaxation. We fell in love with this property the second we set eyes on it, especially due to its location mere steps from the beach. One of our favorite things about the property is that, when you are inside looking out the windows, all you see are the tops of palms, our massive strangler fig, and seagrape. It has a wonderful, private feel, but we have also made it beachy and airy with a strong coastal feel. The location on the West End cannot be beat, especially during high season, when a quick hop on Tarpon Bay can have you to Bailey's in 3 minutes flat. Hop on your bikes, and in a short ride you can be at Doc Ford's, Over Easy Cafe, Il Tesoro, Sanibel Deli, Great White Grill, Rosie's, Beach Piez (pizza), Sanibel Sprout, ice cream, and other restaurants and shops.

Truly a beach house paradise
A designer beach theme and recent renovations and up-dates give this home an elegant look and feel, including white shiplap walls, gorgeous floors, the latest appliances, a completely new kitchen with beautiful counters, expertly renovated bathrooms, up-to-date decor and artwork. We enjoyed the lovely master bedroom, with separate sitting area and attached brand-new tiled bathroom. The double-opening sliding glass doors give the place a tree-house feel. Out of every window is a view of lush foliage. The open living room, kitchen, and eating area and vaulted ceilings give a spacious feel. Overall, this was a dream beach house for us and we hope to return again and again!
Peaceful and Relaxing!
First off, I would definitely stay here again! My family and I had a wonderful time here. It is located a short walk from the beach. Many places to relax and cool off; my favorite was the covered lanai. It was one of the smoothest rental arrangements I have ever had.
Fast wifi, lots of bikes to explore the island, fully stocked kitchen, modern updates, comfortable furniture, friendly neighbors - We hope to visit again soon!
Clean and Comfortable
I stayed at this lovely home with my family in November. The layout of the home is wonderful. It has a spacious kitchen and family room where we hung out together. There is also a screened in breezeway which is a nice reading spot. It is a close walk to the beach and we saw dolphins every morning.The hosts had bikes for us to use to explore the island. I would recommend riding to Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge to see all the amazing birds. (You will need cash to get in and they are closed on Fridays).
Home Away From Home
This house was a beautiful place to stay with my family. The house has everything that I like about my actual home -- it's living area is very open and has plenty of natural lighting. The kitchen is absolutely splendid with an island and all of the appliances we needed, plus it opens up into the family room so we were able to cook and hangout with each other all at the same time. We took full advantage of the beach access and used the bikes (for all 6 of us) to bike around Sanibel. The street the house is on is quiet and calm with friendly neighbors that we met on our walks to the beach. The house also has a screened in back porch area perfect for eating lunch or reading a book. My family had a wonderful time and will hope to rent this house again!
Beautiful, quiet spot
We stayed here at the end of September. Beautiful, quiet spot. Very clean and comfortable home. Tasteful, simple decor in the home with open layout. Short walk to the beach. Short drive to restaurants and shops. Covered parking spot. Very accommodating hosts. We recommend taking a kayak tour at Tarpon Bay. We had a fantastic time!
Pottery Barn Charm
This beach gem has been lovingly renovated with an excellent eye for detail and style. The white shiplap throughout the home lends an updated New England charm. Kitchen and bathrooms are brand new, spotlessly clean. The open feel in the kitchen/dining/living area gives an open, spacious feel. Lush vegetation surrounds the house and can be seen out each window, giving the house a tree-house feel. The main living area opens to a lovely screened in porch with new patio set. Double-opening sliding glass doors open from both the master and the living area into screened in porch. There is a lovely private trail for the short walk to the beach. We will definitely return to this unusually beautiful and well-maintained beach home. A real find!
