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!

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!

It really is paradise

  • 5 of 5
"Paradise" is an over-used word, but it's absolutely accurate for this wonderful house. The location is unbeatable, and the amenities (including the resident ospreys, pelicans, dolphins, terns, manatees etc) superb.

For bird watchers there's a never-ending panorama, and for fishermen, the fishing dock is perfect. Or if you want to do nothing, enjoy the outside pool, and your own beach.

Just as can happen in your own home, we had some minor problems in the house, which were dealt with very quickly, efficiently. and effectively by the owner and caretaker.

We stayed just over 3 weeks, and liked it so much that we're already arranging to book for next year.

The house is wonderfully isolated, yet minutes away from shops and restaurants, and Sanibel is a beautiful and relaxing place, with no high rises, and no major chains evident.

We go to Sanibel twice a year, and can't wait to get back.

Luxurious Sanibel Sanctuary

  • 5 of 5
A piece of paradise situated on the end of a lush peninsula. This home provides the perfect setting for creating special moments with friends and family that will last the test of time. You are surrounded by paradise. The home sits at edge of the water with a private beach and dock. My family of four spent countless hours on the dock, sipping tea, watching the boats sail and saying hello to the dolphins who drop by daily for an afternoon visit. Feeling adventurous? Take the kayaks out on the bay to get a closer look at the dolphins. We had a pair of friendly ones flipping their fins within feet of our kayaks.
The house is nicely appointed with luxurious tempur-pedic beds,a gourmet kitchen and spa-like showers in the bathrooms. The body jets in the master bath make for an invigorating experience.
Take a refreshing dip in the saltwater pool/spa and feel the stress wash away. The saltwater pool seems to have an exfoliating effect on your skin. We spent hours wading in the pool and listening to the sounds of exotic birds playing overhead. There are dozens of species that inhabit the peninsula. There's even a rooftop deck to get a closer look.
A good thing is that this piece of paradise is only about a ten minute bike ride from all that Sanibel Island has to offer. Drive or take a bike to the strip to access the market, restaurants, and shopping. We spent a lot of time at Jerry's Foods gathering ingredients for our nightly grilling. Though there are many restaurants to choose from, we chose to make most of our meals in paradise.
The owners were most accommodating. I spent 30 minutes talking to him about the attractions on Sanibel. He is anxious to share his paradise home, and is genuinely vested in making your stay comfortable, memorable and worry-free. This is his paradise and he works to make sure his guests learn to love it too.
Overall, it was an unforgettable experience for my family. Every moment that we shared took place against the beautiful backdrop that paradise provides. Enjoy your sunsets.

Winter Get-away

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this property for six weeks in January-February to get away from the northeast winter. This was our first year in Sanibel, after two years on Anna Maria Island and we couldn't have picked a better place. The house was roomy without being too large and having all the main living areas on one floor made it very easy. The house was clean, furniture and kitchen appliances seemed like new. The large screened-in porch was 'home' to my husband for all 6 weeks. We enjoyed watching the osprey and pelicans on the dock and saw dolphins every day. Toward the end of our stay the water warmed up enough that we caught a glimpse of a manatee.
Restaurants abound on Sanibel and Captiva and I can say we never had a bad meal nor was there a restaurant we tried that we wouldn't go back to. And Jerry's Supermarket had everything needed to cook at home - we never went off the island.
Took a little bit to figure out the pool and hot tub controls but the owner was extremely helpful and once we got the hang of it worked perfectly.
We've already booked for 2015.

Owner's Response: We had just transitioned to a new pool control system, and I was still figuring out how to optimize it. As of now we have a web enabled remote device that controls the pool from the living room or even more remotely if need be. Simple and effective.

Fantastic Stay on Sanibel (

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this home for 28 days, and we had a wonderful experience. Without any doubt, this home location is unbeatable for a wildlife experience. While it is not on the main beaches, they are only a few minute drive or bike ride away. We rode our bikes to the beach every day. The home is very new, great kitchen, the pool, and layout are great for a 3 bedroom set up. The owner is easy to work with and was very responsive to any need. We saw dolphins (almost every day) manatees, and absolutely incredible bird life. Its like a bird highway in the morning and evening when they birds come and go from the wildlife refuge. Due to the current going in and out of the refuge at this point, there is such an abundant of life at this spot. We kayaked into Tarpon Bay, and visited the bird islands, where 100s of birds roost for the evening. Osprey were all around catching fish. Egrets, Pelican, Ibis, Herons, Seagulls, etc. If you want a great wildlife experience in Sanibel, try this home. Thanks you Mr. G, for making this a wonderful month for us to relax & spend at your home. We can't wait to return again. D and J, Colorado.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time. Sat on deck and watched the manatees, dolphins, and an amazing number of birds fly into and out of the wildlife refuge. Loved the pool - spent many hours there. Brought my husband, 2 kids and my parents - great for everyone.
