Sanibel Island House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
BOWMAN'S BEACH HOUSE is an architecturally significant holiday home designed by the world renowned architectural firm Duany Plater-Zyberk. The community of Seaside, on Florida's panhandle, is one of DPZ's most acclaimed projects.
The house is elevated twelve feet above grade! Its most dominant feature is a two storey high wraparound screen porch to temper the summer sun. It also features a dramatic Great Room with fireplace, a towering exposed wood cathedral ceiling and, to guarantee a cooling breeze, six pairs of French doors opening onto the porch on three sides.
There are three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms and a sitting room that overlooks the Great Room, like a choir loft!
Please note: 28 day minimum rentals for houses on Sanibel

About Robin Hamilton Fyfe
We live in Ottawa, Canada.
BOWMAN'S BEACH HOUSE is the perfect winter getaway for myself (an Architect), my wife (a Sports Medicine MD) and our two school age kids. Sadly we can't get away as much as we would like.
We hope you enjoy BOWMAN'S BEACH HOUSE as much as we do!
Robin Hamilton Fyfe purchased this house in 2008
Why Robin Hamilton Fyfe chose Sanibel Island
Sanibel Island is unique!
Most of the island is conservation land and wildlife refuge. There is no highrise or high density development permitted. The commercial development is low-key and pedestrian scaled. We like to ride the bikes to Captiva Island and the Sanibel Recreation Centre - both are about one mile away.
And the beach is fantastic!
What makes this house unique
BOWMANS BEACH HOUSE is located in Sanibel Bayous and is the closest house to Bowman’s Beach, one of the most spectacular beaches in southwest Florida. Our beach path passes through conservation land and palm forests, over a salt water pond on a plank footbridge, and past protected sand dunes with nesting wildlife. To the east this extraordinary beach stretches for ten miles! To the west there is no development for as far as the eye can see – just sand, surf, sea and sky!
