About Sandra Feather

Our family lives in Edinburgh in Scotland and we have been coming to Sanibel and Captiva since 2006. We are Harold and Sandra, and our son Joshua is 23 and our daughter Katie is 21. We love the island and it is truly a total paradise...

We feel very privileged to have a home here and would hope that anyone who stays enjoys the beauty of the surroundings and all that Sanibel brings to a superb quality of life.

Sandra Feather purchased this house in 2012

Why Sandra Feather chose The Dunes

We were in Captiva for a holiday in July 2012 - and during the last two days before returning home - we were showed the property in Sanibel as it was for sale... Immediately we all liked the warm, spacious feel about the house and the quality of the remodelling which had been done previously. The views on to the golf course are wonderful and I have found that during these last few months - they are truly unique.

What makes this house unique

The view is stunning, and the now newly refurbished Lanai has sliders which can be opened in the cooler months to allow the breeze to flow through. From a family who live in a climate which usually ranges from 50 - 60 degrees - that is truly wonderful!!

The real benefit though is the spaciousness and light in the general living area - everyone who has come into the house has said and felt the same - it's a sunshine house with a quality, warm feeling about it.

Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd stay at this wonderful property after spending 2015 celebrating our engagement here, we decided to return for our honeymoon in June 2017. Tom and I were so grateful to The Feathers on all that they did to make our stay extra special.

It is great that there are bikes and beach accessories to utilise whilst you stay which makes the beach days so much easier and cheaper whilst also keeping you active! (Parking is $4 an hour on the islands beaches). You are a short ride to the local shops and restaurants and also not far off the island to Fort Myers and Estero regions with the larger shopping complexes and more golf courses.

The location on the Dunes is great with excellent views from the property of the golf course, lakes, gators and especially great views when the afternoon storms come. It is quite comfortable with an open, spacious feel with numerous seating/relaxing areas, meaning if there was more than 2 in the party, people can have their own space if they wanted to. It also is helpful to have full amenities such as washer, dryer, dishwasher and full american size fridge freezer.

We love Sanibel and the SWFL region and staying here you really feel like a local, with the neighbours and residents on the Dunes being really friendly.

Thank you Sandra for sharing your home and allowing us to stay for our special occasion.

Best wishes and thank you once again

The new Mr and Mrs Shaw

Homely and welcoming..... perfect!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Was spotlessly clean throughout with lots of extras to help give a homely feel and plenty of room to spread out.

Stunning location with lots of wildlife to see and good area for exploring and relaxing in local cafes, bars and restaurants..... Traders being a favourite with daily 'Happy Hours'.

Beach areas had lots to offer with either quiet, calming spaces or social spots to enjoy chatting to locals. Boat rides and water activities on offer or strolling, cycling or running.... all to spend time with family or friends.

Food quality excellent both in local shops or on main land......local caught fish superb.

We had a great time, this being our 5th visit and can't wait for a repeat next year.

Thank you Sandra for all your attention to detail and.being there on the end of a phone for support. J & Dxx

Sanibel perfection

  • 5 of 5

Once again we chose to spend out vacation at our favorite rental 1603 Sandcastle Road.

On arrival the home was immaculate as always. The layout of the home is perfect for both couples and families.

The views whilst eating breakfast and dinner in the lanai overlooking the golf course are amazing. With views of local wildlife, including gators, being a regular sight.

There are cycles for your use which are ideal for the island lifestyle, along with beach accessories for all the family.

There is no other place on Sanibel that we would rather spend our vacation.

Thank you once again Sandra and Harold for allowing us to share your wonderful home.

Great location. We loved it from the first moment!

  • 5 of 5

Hi Sandra.

Thank you for the wonderful time we had in your great house.

Everything was perfekt. We missed nothing. The furniture was quite new, everything was tip top clean. We have never seen a house for rent in such a good condition before! We felt very comfortable and we enjoyed several rides by bike. Now we know every beach and spot on Sanibel and Captiva. The location of the house is very good because it´s at the beginning of Sanibel. If you want to go to Fort Myers or to the malls you're at the mainland in a few minutes. So we will come back and hope to see you again soon.

Thank you so much.

Sanibel Heaven

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd stay at this wonderful property. The owners Sandra and Harold ensure that everything you need to enjoy your vacation is provided.

The property is beautifully maintained and a real home from home. The location adjacent to the Dunes Golf Club affords wonderful views over the course and also many of its wildlife habitat.

There are cycles available for the short ride to the beaches and local shops and restaurants, but the opportunity to barbecue dinner on your porch watching the fabulous Sanibel sunset should not be missed.

Our trip this year was made more special as our daughters boyfriend proposed to her during our stay.

We have already arranged to return in 2016 and would not go anywhere else in South West Florida.

Thank you Sandra for sharing your home with us.

The Place to be on Sanibel Island

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the best property we've rented since we started coming to Sanibel five years ago. The home is meticulously maintained and appointed. It is quite comfortable with an open, spacious feel. All amenities are provided and the kitchen is very well equipped. We particularly enjoyed relaxing on the enclosed lanai with gorgeous views of the golf course, lakes and wildlife. The home is ideally located close to shops and restaurants. For those times you wish to leave the island to enjoy the many other attractions in the Ft. Myers area, its location makes access on and off the island very easy. Sandra made every effort to ensure we were comfortable and happy while staying in her home. It truly felt like our "home away from home".
