We think this is the most beautiful spot on the island, with its village-like setting, convenient access to the Marina, General Store and wonderful restaurants.

We love to watch the wide variety of wildlife that lives around the house. We also enjoy fishing in the Bay and grilling the days catch on our outdoor grill. It's our favorite place to 'get away from it all', and we're sure you will feel the same. Its a true Island Experience.

FANTASTIC PARADISE AGAIN!

  • 5 of 5
2nd time staying at the Island House and already reserved for next year! Relaxing, peaceful, calm. A beautiful place to stay for everyone. A cool boat dock -perfect for our fishing boat, kayaking, and every evening its our own bird sanctuary when the tide goes out. The TREES are amazing! The pool is awesome! Walk across the street to experience sunsets every evening and soak in the healing ocean waters. The house is clean and breezy. beds are super comfy. Theres restaurants nearby and a cute little mini grocery but this year we didn't eat out. Island house has everything you want and need to cook, grill, eat in. Porpoises swam right up to the dock almost every day. We caught loads of fish and even a shovel head small shark & a black tip shark. Of course, we put those guys back. We found a seahorse and many other amazing creatures. Its private and my favorite place on earth. Chip/Sams awesome customer service and sincere care is the best! I HIGHLY recommend the amazing Island House. See you next year!

THE PERFECT LAID-BACK GETAWAY AT ISLAND HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
Just settling back into "real-life" after 6 weeks of living/working from Island House in the beautiful Santiva area...and all I want to do is turn around and go back. The location is the best on the island -- in a friendly, but quiet neighborhood easy walking distance to 3 great restaurants and a general store. Bike paths and a great little marina are literally outside your door. The house itself is well-equipped, comfortable, and casual with everything you need to feel at home. Decor is fun and funky, perfectly suited for the area. There's nothing better than sitting out back having coffee (or a glass of wine!) while enjoying a beautiful view of the bay with the pelicans, herons, and occasional dolphins as visitors. One of the best beaches on the island is a quick walk right across the street, so you never miss a single amazing sunset. And having the big pool with a screened porch is just an added bonus! Chip is the perfect property manager -- helpful, friendly, and there when you need him without being obtrusive in any way. My whole extended stay was fantastic -- and I'm already booked for 2014. Can't wait to be back!

ISLAND HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
Another wonderful year at Island House-our fifth year, and it gets better each time. The setting is gorgeous-we love the house itself, and this year we went for a swim-or two-every day-heaven! Chip and Sam are always welcoming and helpful. Went for a three hour fishing trip with Joey Burnsed (next door at Castaways Marina) which was not only fun, but we also brought back lots of fish. Our favorite restaurant/bar is right around the corner-the Lazy Flamingo. What more can you want?

Sanibel Island is a barrier island just off the southwest coast of Florida by Fort Myers. Sanibel is about 12 miles long and 4 miles wide, and is known around the world for its fabulous shelling beaches. Due to Sanibel Island's unique geographical orientation, lying East to West instead of North to South, it acts as a scoop and gathers seashells along its beaches. Throughout the year, thousands of visitors come to enjoy Sanibel's beaches and hunt for that special seashell. Sanibel has an average temperature of about 75 degrees. While Sanibel Island is a wildlife refuge in and of itself, over 60% of the island is protected wildlife preserves. There are over 26 miles of bike trails and over 17 miles of beautiful beaches.
