Overview

Sanibel Island House Rental Photos and Description

Spacious 3BR/3BA on a private beach

Whether you are a beach lover, a birdwatcher, or on a hunt for the perfect sunset, our home is just the place for you!

Located on a private white sand beach, towards the end of a secluded peninsula, the house has 270 degree panoramic views of 3 bodies of water (San Carlos Bay, Tarpon Bay, and Ladyfinger Lake).

It is also situated in the heart of the Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge. A variety of bird species perch on our dock during the day, and you can spot dolphins and manatees playing just a few yards away. The property is also home to a family of endangered gopher tortoises! Watch the wildlife from the comfort of the home, or take a kayak out to the nearby Rookery Islands for a truly spectacular showing of birds.

The house itself has been recently constructed (mid 2011), with all modern amenities, appliances and styling. There is a pool and a hot tub, multiple TVs, WiFi, massaging shower heads, and a Bosch gas stove for the master chef.

This house is our little slice of heaven that we'd love to share with you. There's nothing like watching the sun set on the bay from the rooftop deck, or falling asleep to the soft crashing of the waves just 15 yards from the bedroom window. We hope you take a look for yourself!

Sunny in Sanibel

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful home to have a vacation. We loved the privacy on the bay and watching all the wildlife from the porch, dock and beach. The home is laid out well for a family and master bedroom and bathroom awesome with views of bay. Sanibel weather was sunny and 80's everyday which added to the fun!

My kids really loved the whole time here and between fishing, shelling, kayaking, pool/spa, biking and porch to watch the dolphins, manatees, ospreys and pelicans, was just a wonderful time. Sanibel Island really is a throw back Florida appeal for me as a native Floridian but years since I had been to this part of Florida. Location of the home is great to Periwinkle, which is the main road for all the restaurants. Thistle Lodge was awesome on the Gulf side and Lazy Flamingo, very casual, north end of island toward Sanibel and Traders all great!

Thank you again for the time at your wonderful home on Tarpon Bay!

Best,

Sunny in Sanibel

Second Timers

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year here and the house was just as beautiful as last year. Pool controls much easier to work than last year. The screened-in porch was a favorite spot to watch the dolphins, ospreys and pelicans. It is at the end of a quiet road, but the neighbors, bikers and joggers are all very friendly...and just minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Periwinkle.

Seclusion, views, comfort

  • 5 of 5

Our group of four adults found this property to be ideal. Located at the end of a packed sand road bordered by the mangrove, the house, pool and spacious screened porch offer privacy and quiet in addition to expansive views of Tarpon Bay from all the living areas except the two additional bedrooms in the front of the house. Being on an upper level affords wonderful bird watching. Ospreys and pelicans abound. There is a roof deck which is a nice place for sunning on a windy day. The master bedroom suite is notable in terms of spaciousness, water views and terrific walk in closet not to mention the double shower with multiple shower heads. There is ample storage space throughout the house. The kitchen is very upscale with ample counter space.

Activities we enjoyed include fishing off the private dock and beach, swimming in the heated pool, relaxing on the porch, walking and biking on the lovely road and kayaking around the nature preserve that borders the bay. We fell in love with Sanibel itself withs it's abundance of tropical flora, variety of excellent beaches, extensive bike paths and restaurant choices. Even when the weather was not the best we found entertainment in visiting the local museums and fishing with a charter boat in the backwaters. After 45 years of travel throughout the Caribbean and Florida, we have finally found our spot and we plan to return next year and stay longer.

Owner's Response: No-see-ums ( AKA sand flies) are pretty much endemic in Coastal Florida. Sometimes an olive oil based balm (available in Sanibel at a store called "Shiny Things") works well. Or just use plain olive oil. Or stay indoors at dawn and dusk. Sorry!

Enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The house was very nice and we really enjoyed the pool. The house is very quiet and one can see the dolphins and the birds from the living room. In the wintertime, the porch is a little cool but one can use the roofterrace to benefit from the sun. Sanibel has a lot to offer and we will definitely return

Great vacation home!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was incredible. The view is amazing and so much to see including manatee and numerous fish and birds. The house is beautiful and has great furniture and the beds are super comfortable. The owners were very accommodating and made sure everything was up to par. Thanks again for a great stay and a wonderful vacation. The vibe on the island is so relaxing and everyone is polite and nice. The Lighthouse cafe was my favorite place for breakfast!! Worth the wait!
