GREAT LOCATION!!! Our near beach home is just a short walk to the beach. A VERY private tropical heated pool Is surrounded by lush vegetation including many palms. The living room, eat in kitchen, and family room feature an open floor plan that is bright, light, and airy with a high ceiling and tropical colors. The living area has something for everyone with large comfortable furniture and a 46' LED HD flat screen in the living room and a family room with tropical and comfortable rattan furniture and a great view. A wall of sliding glass doors provides a beautiful view of the pool, yard, river, and beyond and leads to a large comfortable screen enclosed deck. The yard backs to the Sanibel River with beautiful views of the water and wildlife. Distant beyond the river is the 7th tee of Beach View Golf Course which is one of the two public courses on Sanibel. Our three spacious bedrooms offer privacy and are beautifully furnished. Two large tiled bathroom both have walk in showers.
Our elevated home has been completely updated and all the furniture is new in 2008 or after with additional updates including linens and kitchen equipment each year. The house is bright, cheery, and fun with high ceilings and large rooms. The living room has very comfortable seating for you to relax after a busy day at the beach or...? Sit back and relax and enjoy the 46' LED HD flat screen with our high definition cable and DVR, or a movie on the DVD player.

The full sized laundry room is conveniently just of the kitchen. Our family room is a tropical paradise with beautiful rattan furniture for you to sit and read that book or just enjoy the beautiful view.
In our years of visiting and enjoying Sanibel we have found that the desirable east end of the island offers some of the best shelling. Sanibel is known to have the best shelling in North America. Sanibel is a quaint tropical paradise with no street lights or stop lights. Building height is strictly limited and you will not find the typical franchises here. Sanibel is also known to have some of the best restaurants from top notch gourmet options to grouper baskets and conch fritters. Try them all.
Enjoy the opportunity to hire a fishing charter, rent a boat or jet ski, take a delightful evening dolphin cruise, bike the 26 miles of bike trails, take long walks on the beach, explore the 6,500 acre Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, utilize the workout facilities of Sanibel's community center, enjoy swimming and playing in our pool or just curl up with a good book and glass of wine. Our home is here for you to use and enjoy as much as we do.
We vacationed on Sanibel Island for twenty plus years spending a week or two a year in paradise. We stayed at resorts, rented condos, and finally single family homes. Once we stayed in a single family home we knew that was what we wanted to buy. We were lucky to find our beautiful home in 2008 and now spend as much time as possible at our house. We have also enjoyed sharing our home with many wonderful guests from the US and many parts of the world. We hope we have a chance to share our home with you.
We chose our home for many reasons including how close it is to the beach. It is hard to stress how wonderful it is to have easy access with a short walk. We enjoy the great east end location that puts us in the heart of Sanibel and makes access on and off the island easy. The house has a great view located on the Sanibel River with views of Beach View Golf course beyond. The river and the beautiful native tropical foliage give an amazing an back yard and gives the pool area complete privacy. We also enjoy being one block from one of the bicycle paths (for use of our four bikes we provide) and only two blocks from the Beach View Golf Course club house.
The old saying is that the most important thing for real estate is location, location, and location. Our home has location and offers an easy short walk to the beach to enjoy sunning, walking, shelling or just watching dolphins play. 26 miles of bicycle paths are accessed just a block away with our four bikes provided with our home. Our home has one of the best views on Sanibel with our yard backing to the Sanibel River and Beach View Golf course beyond. The seclusion of our back yard and pool area is amazing with total privacy in the pool and while sunning on the pool deck. The Beach View Club house with public golf is just two blocks away
