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 19 and our daughter Katie is 16. 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 Florida

We were here for a holiday in July 2012 - and during the last two days before returning home - we were showed the property 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 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.

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".

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

Over the years we have been frequent visitors to Sanibel Island although never staying on the Island itself but always within driving distance for day visits.

After finding Sandra’s wonderful home this has now changed our holiday plans for ever.

From the minute you enter the house you are immediately impressed by the design, decorations, layout and cleanliness. The first words that spring to mind was ‘wow’ the views from the lanai overlooking ‘The Dunes Golf Club’ are outstanding with so much of Florida wildlife on your doorstep.

There were 4 adults in our party and the size of the property enabled couples to have their own space if they wanted to. We made full use of the BBQ and have many happy memories of our BBQs under the Sanibel setting sun.

The kitchen area had every facility you could wish for especially the large fridge/freezer but most importantly a washer/dryer which is essential when staying for a number of weeks.

The rooms themselves are a perfect size it was like ‘home from home’ the beds are so comfortable, the towels are so soft. After a hot day at the beach, is was bliss to walk into a lovely chilled house – the air conditioning and ceiling fans certainly do the job. The little extras provided like, cycles, beach equipment just make this a perfect holiday home.

My husband is an avid golfer and the bonus of being able to play a fantastic golf course right on your doorstep made the holiday for him – and the pool and clubhouse made it for me 

We would also like to thank Sandra for her excellent communication throughout our pre-booking and also during our stay – it was great to meet you Sandra and your family for the 4th of July celebrations and we are looking forward to our stay in January and June next year 

If you are looking for the perfect holiday location then look no further as this is ‘Paradise Found’.

Splendid time and saw the Alligators this time !!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent provision and comfortable .... space for all of the family....6 in total !

Super room space and everyone could chill out where they had space of their own. Spotlessly clean all around the house and easy to keep tidy and clean during stay. Laundry facilities ample and so, so useful ! Kitchen very easy to work in and plenty of room for food and with a big fridge plenty of drinks kept cool !! Views spectacular over the lakes and plenty of wildlife to see - even fireflies in the trees at night !

We have been twice now and will certainly go again - look forward to it !!

Thank you Sandra and loved every minute of our holiday XXX
