STEPS TO BEACH, GORGEOUS LANAI POOL/SPA WITH LAKE VIEW, JUST OFF WEST GULF DR

Sanibel Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This comfortable, fully updated single story takes full advantage of its close proximity to the beach while offering beautiful lakeside sunsets which can be enjoyed from the spacious lanai. The walk to the beach is a short 250 yards. The breakfast area, master bedroom, and one guest bedroom all open to the spacious covered patio which overlooks the large heated pool (with elevated heated spa). Beyond that the view broadens to Palm Lake and the spectacular flora and fauna for which Sanibel is renowned. The home perfectly suits the laid back island lifestyle without skimping on modern conveniences.

We had been vacationing in Sanibel for over 10 years when we first purchased a condo. As our children grew older, we wanted to find a house that possessed all of the comforts of home but allowed us to feel as though we were on vacation in paradise. From the moment we walked onto the lanai and saw the sun setting over the lake, we were sold on this home. The pool and patio, which can be accessed through all the main living areas, were other obvious attractions, as well as the overall 'cozy' feel of the house. Central location on Sanibel with nearby Bailey's Shopping Center and west end of Periwinkle ended up being more convenient than we ever anticipated.

The house is about as close as you can get to deeded access to the most beautiful beach in the world. It is perfect for sunning or shelling, and there is a even a little pull-off area where you can park bikes.

The home is beautifully integrated with the Palm Lake environment. In morning you can enjoy a cup of coffee while watching the lake come to life. The pool gets plenty of afternoon sun, with evening sunsets over the lake. You can sit back there any time of day and block out the world-- it's just you the lake, the birds, and the pool-- and the bugs can't get in!

PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for the entire month of February, 2014, and fell in love with it. It has everything we wanted: great lanai with heated pool, spa, and plenty of tables & chairs; 4 adult bikes which we used almost every day; short walk (about 300 yards) to the beach; and very comfy house with nice furnishings and well equipped with towels, linens, and all the necessary kitchen utensils.

A GREAT FAMILY VACATION PROPERTY.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed on the beach in a nice condo last year and shifted to this house near the beach this trip. We made a great decision...we enjoyed the house much more than the condo. Beach was an easy 5 minute walk anytime we wanted sand between our toes, but we had our own private pool to enjoy without the elbow to elbow crowding so often found in shared condo pools. The home was very comfortably furnished and the layout of the bedrooms allow all to have privacy. Our grandkids had a big time trying to play the organ located in the living room. The home furnished an unbelievable range of extras that were available for use including: gas grill, beach cart, toys, chairs and even a neat little sand digger to locate those hard to find shells. The pool area was awesome with tables, chairs and couches for all. A beautiful Florida lake is directly behind the property, and we saw the resident alligator (5-6') on several evenings. We had plenty of room to pull our rental van into the garage. Did I mention the bikes?? We were able to use the bikes in the garage and save a ton of money over renting bikes for the entire family for a week. The owner was easy to work with and was genuinely interested in making sure our Florida trip was a success. We will definitely look to rent this property for our next visit to Sanibel.

LOVELY HOME

  • 5 of 5
This house was a wonderful find on VRBO. The price was reasonable and the owners were flexible with our scheduling. The house was very comfortable and had many amenities that we did not expect. The lake in the back of the house was beautiful at all times of the day. There was quite a large pool and a wonderful jacuzzi to enjoy while just relaxing. The neighborhood is very quiet, but just one house from West Gulf Dr. I was told it was just a short walk to the beach as my husband has trouble walking far--and it really was just a couple of minutes and all level. I hope we have the opportunity to rent this lovely property again. I highly recommend it.

MY FAVORITE PLACE TO RELAX.

  • 5 of 5
We’ve been coming to Sanibel Island annually for almost twenty years and have stayed in numerous places. Once we found 223 Palm Lake Drive, we never looked any further.

We love everything about this home; it is conveniently located, quiet, well equipped and extremely comfortable. The property is always clean when we arrive. The pictures here only partially reflect the warmth and attractiveness of the property. Arriving here feels like coming home.

The owners are some of the nicest people to deal with and make the entire rental process easy. We’ve already made our reservation for next year and alerted the owners of our plans for the years after that.

A WONDERFUL ESCAPE

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have had the good fortune of renting this house for the month of January for six consecutive years (2007 - 2012). To us, it is not just a house, it's a home. It is located in a quiet neighborhood, with a lake just beyond the enclosed pool and lanai. There is nothing like relaxing by the pool while watching and listening to the birds, and later enjoying the sunset. A quick stroll to the beach gives you a chance to collect sea shells like you've never seen. The property is beautifully landscaped and the house is clean and very well equipped. The owners work very hard to make improvements every year, from new rugs, to a completely refurbished master bethroom, to flat screen TV's, etc. It's a great area for riding bikes and you are close to the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge. There are great restaurants to try throughout the island - Over Easy or the Lighthouse Cafe for breakfast; Matzaluna's, Doc Ford's, or Trader's for dinner; and Schnapper's Hots for pizza. Or it's a pleasant ride to Captiva to sample restaurants there (the Green Flash is a favorite). We have entertained many family members and friends over the years and everyone loves it there. We simply consider Sanibel and Palm Lake Drive a wonderful escape!
