Sanibel is a tropical, natural, barrier island. Over 70% of the island is preserved as a national refuge. The weather always seems to be warm & sunny with gulf breezes keeping the palm trees swaying from the bay to the Gulf of Mexico. The island offers miles & miles of bike paths which for some is the sole mode of transportaton. It is a secret paradise for those who want to relax and return to a simpler life, if even for just a few days.

While you are here, you can visit the Ding Darling Nature Preserve, Bailey Matthews Shell Museum, Sanibel Historical Village, Big Arts, and CROW, the natural wildlife preservation on the island. Shopping and top rated restaurants are at your fingertips! Located on the West End of Sanibel you can also enjoy magnificent sunsets each evening which you cannot view when staying on the East End of the island.White Caps #2 has been completely remodelled for your lifestyle as we intended this to be our permanent home away from home & not a rental property. It wasn't until all our children returned with their children that we knew we had to move to larger quarters just a mile away, thus giving you the opportunity to enjoy all new appliances, granite countertops, beautiful boardwalk tile flooring, and high speed internet access. We chose to keep our little treasure and share it with all of our visitors who can find us right down the road!
