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!
