Sanibel Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Our completely renovated, ground level, open floor plan home is 6 houses from our private beach access. The beach is on the West end of Sanibel, which is much less populated and more secluded. It is almost like having your own private beach! This privacy is rare on Sanibel. Our yard is also very private with tropical vegetation and a heated screened pool. The home sits only one block from one of the major bicycle paths (4 adult bikes provided) and is directly across the street from miles of conservation land. This home is GROUND LEVEL-no stairs to climb to get a cold drink, snack or sun block from inside. The home has been totally renovated and professionally decorated with high end tile completely throughout.

Our entire living area, lanai, dining room, kitchen and living room, has an open floor plan that allows everyone to be involved in the conversation. The large lanai opens out to the pool or to the beautiful back yard with lemon and lime trees. The attractive rattan furniture is a great place to read a book or enjoy the tropical views.

The kitchen has all new stainless steel appliances, maple cabinets, and granite counters with breakfast bar. An outside gas grill is available for all your BBQ needs.

The living room has comfortable seating with a 50' flat screen, high definition TV with cable, surround sound, Comcast DVR for recording your favorite TV shows and movies, and DVD player. To stay connected, we have equipped the home with WIRELESS HIGH SPEED INTERNET and a printer for your convenience and use. We have also included a booklet of our family's favorite restaurants, shops and activities to help guide you to the best Sanibel has to offer.

The three bedrooms have top quality mattresses and linens with televisions. The spacious master bedroom suite includes a king size bed and 40' flat screen, Smart, high definition TV. This allows guests with Netflix, Hulu, etc. accounts to watch their favorite shows. Sliding glass doors provide direct access to the pool with a beautiful tropical view. The in suite bath has a walk-in shower with rare silver travertine tile throughout. A large shower head and designer vessel sink and faucet complete the package. The guest room has a queen size bed with a 32' flat screen, high definition TV. The third bedroom has plenty of room to occupy two twin beds with a 27' flat screen, high definition TV. The guest bathroom is all new,in the Tuscan design with beautiful Italian tile and granite countertop.

A full size washer and dryer with utility sink are available for your laundry needs.

Keep your car cool in the 1 and a 1/2 car garage with plenty of storage.

We provide everything you need for the beach: beach cart, chairs, towels, cooler, floats, and sand toys. For the more adventurous: kayak with all the accessories including a kayak cart for easy mobility. For a rainy day: cards, board games, books, and movies.

Sanibel Island is known to have the best shelling in North America. Sanibel remains unique in it's commitment to preserving the natural environment. Two thirds of Sanibel (6500 acres) is part of a wildlife refuge with miles of waterways and lush tropical plants and exotic wildlife. Sanibel has no traffic lights and building height is strictly limited, with few franchises. You will find unique shops and restaurants with top notch gourmet options to crunchy shrimp baskets that are sure to please everyones palate.

Why Dawn Konopka chose Sanibel Island

Throughout our travels, we fell in love with Sanibel. Along with the best beaches in the world, Sanibel has wonderful weather, a relaxed atmosphere with great restaurants and shopping.There is not a better place to vaction and relax. We one day plan to retire to this beautiful place.

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location! We are 6 houses to private beach access. Our heated screened pool is very secluded and private with an abundance of tropical vegetation. Many of the homes on Sanibel are not ground level. We love the convienence of not climbing stairs everytime we need something in the house or to just go out to the pool. We are located in the middle of the island, close to Captiva and Sanibel's attractions. We have equipped our house as we would for ourselves. Come and make yourself at home.

We have loved being at sea tulip these past two years and hope to be back. The house has everything you would ever need for a fun vacation: gas grill, beach chairs and toys, the warmest pool on the island, fabulous kitchen to cook in and comfortable bedrooms. And it is a short walk to a very quiet and peaceful beach where we walked, swam, fished and watched the glorious sunset every night! The shelling is amazing.
Our favorite restaurants were: Star Fish Cafe, Sweet Melissa's and Thistle Lodge for a special evening out and Fish House and Doc Ford's for great oysters and drinks. the Island Cow was a favorite with the grandchildren.
There are four bikes that we and our guests used everyday and a two passenger kayak which we took to Ding Darling several times a week. I encourage anyone who rents Sea Tulip to give the kayak a try. It is a beautiful and peaceful way to experience the wild life in Sanibel.
The owners and managers are more than helpful and we never had a question or problem that wasn't addressed immediately. For instance, when our kids and grandchildren were expected for a week, we were concerned the gas grill was not full enough. A few hours later, the tank was full.
Thank you, Dawn for sharing your home with us!

Sea Tulip Review

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful month at Sea Tulip on Sanibel. The owners have done a great job renovating and decorating this beautiful home. The kitchen is a dream and there were plenty of beach toys and bikes for us to use. The owners (Dawn and Frank) were very responsive all through the rental process and quickly responded to any questions we had.

I would definitely recommend this home to anyone looking for a restful vacation near the beach.
