Relax on Sanibel: Just a short five minute walk from the house to the beach, you will be greeted by warm Gulf waters, dolphins and manatees playfully swimming, and some of the finest shelling that has made Sanibel Island world renowned. On calm days, don your snorkel and mask and search the shallow waters for conchs, whelks, sand dollars and the elusive Junonia. If the surf is up, try your hand with a boogie board.
After the beach, stroll back to the house and relax in the pool or hot tub with a few margaritas and fire up the BBQ or prepare a candlelight gourmet dinner in the modern kitchen. Or explore the many fine dining establishments that dot the island. Then come home, sit back on the deck overlooking the pool and palm trees and enjoy the sunset with a good glass of wine. Or watch a movie on the High Definition TV.
Leisure Time: Enjoy the opportunity to hire a fishing charter, rent a boat or jet ski, take a delightful evening dolphin cruise, play a round of golf, bike the 26 miles of bike trails, take long walks on the beach, explore the 6,500 acre Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, utilize the workout facilities of Sanibel's community center, enjoy swimming and playing in our pool or just curl up with a good book and glass of wine. Our home is here for you to use and enjoy as much as we do. Once you experience Sanibel you will have a new perspective on what a vacation is all about. Sanibel has a unique charm unlike any other place in Florida. It adheres to strict building standards focusing largely on protecting wildlife and the environment yet offers everything one would want for wonderful vacation. No high-rises here, just paradise.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Our family needed a holiday. A get-away from the race but with all the bells and whistles. The minute we drove in the lane we knew we had made the right choice. The house and beautiful landscaping reflected a pride in ownership and we couldn't wait to get inside. The interior was just as described with lovely high-end furniture, quality beds & linen, large fully -equipped kitchen and screened porch. The house was beautifully decorated without clutter. It was so clean. We began to relax immediately. The private heated pool & spa were enjoyed by all. The pool steps were enjoyed by our young granddaughter but the design also enabled the older ones to swim laps. It was nice to have weekly pool service included. Lots of extra towels were provided. There are so many activities available close by . Natalie & Rudy provided great suggestions from shopping to local excursions and were only a phone call away when we had question. A "shell" table is available at the house for cleaning the treasures you find on the beach. Its the special touches that made our holiday so enjoyable. The biggest decisions we had to make during our stay ... Did we want to put ice cubes in our glass of fresh squeezed Florida orange juice? ... Did we want the foot rest up or the foot rest down while we watched TV? Thank you Natalie & Rudy & Family for sharing your wonderful Island home with us. We left Sanibel relaxed, refreshed and kissed by the Florida sun. It was a wonderful family vacation.
