SANIBEL HARBOUR RESORT.

COMPLETELY RENOVATED AND REDECORATED!

This is a Florida you have never experienced! Florida’s hidden secret is our little piece of heaven in Sanibel Harbour Resort and spa!

You begin your experience with a romantic drive through beautiful banyan trees, colorful tropical flowers and mangrove forests on this private peninsula.

Wake up to sunrises over the Gulf of Mexico plus romantic sunsets on San Carlos Bay in addition to your own private beach overlooking Sanibel and Captiva Island. Watch the dolphins and Manatees play as you sip coffee on your lanai in the morning or afternoon cocktails. This spacious screened in lanai opens from the living room and the master suite.

Our condo is a large 1400 square foot unit located on the 10th floor with breathtaking views.

From the moment you unlock the door and walk in, you will fall in love with the fabulous view! Pelicans, Ospreys and Eagles that fly by at eye level will thrill you, as it always does us, as we walk in Setting on the lanai watching the dolphins play and the occasional Manatee that swims by is wonderful. .

We offer double beds in the guest suite complete with its own bath and it closes off from the rest of the unit for ultimate privacy for your family or guests.

The master suite offers a private master bath, luxurious water views , pelicans and ospreys flying by the window and a door wall leading to the lanai for moonlight moments and falling asleep to the sound of the waves.

This is a non-smoking unit.

About Jan Niebauer

We are Real Estate Brokers in Michigan and have owned our own firm for over 35 years.

We enjoy travel, nature, the water and golf.

Sanibel Harbour was a perfect fit for us! We can take an early morning flight from Michigan and be on one of our favorite golf courses that afternoon.

Jan Niebauer purchased this condo in 2005

Why Jan Niebauer chose Florida

We owned a beachfront condo in Maui Hawaii for almost 20 years. We found the distance and the time it took to get there prohibited us from going as frequently as we wanted. We were very spoiled and very particular when we began our search in South West Florida. We knew we wanted to be on the Gulf side. We knew we wanted flowers, privacy, and no asphalt and neon signs... We knew we were asking for more than we had ever seen in Florida. When we drove in to Sanibel Harbour and were welcomed by the Banyan trees and beautiful Hibiscus blooming on this very private peninsula we felt like we had found our second paradise! We had come to visit friends and as we walked into their unit we were overcome with the view. Nothing was available then, but two weeks later we got a phone call that 1014 had just gone on the market. Sight unseen, we purchased it. We still walk in and say Wow! What a view!

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy the private beach, Coffee on the lanai, watching the dolphins play, the manatee slowly swimming by, the osprey and pelicans so close we feel we can reach out and touch them, and my favorite, the beautiful white pelicans that are only there for a short while! We love going to the shrimp boats and buying fresh shrimp.

We enjoy the pool and hot tub but our favorite place to be is laying on the beach with palm trees swaying next to us and listening to the waves.

We frequently walki down the beach to the beach bar for hamburgers in the afternoon but we always like to be back home for the most fabulous sunsets imaginable from our own lanai.

Sanibel Island with all of it's wonderful restaurants beaches, entertainment, nature and golf courses make this a must for everyone!

It is great fun to pick up a Randy Wayne White novel (written by a local author about this entire area) for some local fiction/mystery color, pick a spot on the beach to start reading, and then head over the the Island or out towards Ft. Myers Beach, that features a live band most days, (Just before the bridge) to either of the 'Doc Fords' to live the island and places you have been reading about!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank You for sharing your home away from home with us. It was wonderful. The view is magnificent, the accommodations are spotless, the amenities were perfect. Cannot wait to see when we can return. Being lovers of sun and water, the pool in such close proximity to the beach and water was ideal. Not many places can brag of this combination. Also, Doc Fords was tasty in FMB, we went to Mucky Duck for din and Bubble Room for desert. (should have walked home for the size of the cake!). Again, Thanks and if you need a testimonial - you've got it.

Can't beat the view!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time renting on VRBO, and Jan & Jim made it so easy. The condo was great! My first morning on the balcony, I saw manatee's, Dolphins, and manta rays , what could be a better way to start your vacation. The unit was clean and comfortable, the pool over looking the ocean was beautiful. I will definitely be a repeat customer!

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled down from Philadelphia to see my show BURT & ME at the Broadway Palm Theatre in Fort Myers. Finding this place was EXTREMELY fortunate for us. It was PERFECT and the view from the balcony was breathtaking. Everything was as advertised...in fact this place EXCEEDED our expectations. I cannot say enough good things about this rental. The pool, the hot tub, the condo....EVERYTHING was AMAZING. Angelo the owner/broker could not have been nicer. The owners were WONDERFUL to deal with. I gave this place FIVE stars....only because I couldn't give it TEN. We seriously hope to return someday. THANK YOU!!!!

In Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Everything was PERFECT! I live in Orlando and my son lives in Ft Myers. For years I've been staying in the Ft. Myers Beach area at least 2 times a year. When I spoke with Jan she made me feel so comfortable and welcome. I decided to try this location out. We absolutely loved it. The place was very clean and the view was amazing. We had everything we needed in the condo. Anytime I go to visit my son I will first see if this place is available. This is the best place to stay if you are going to Ft. Myers Beach. Trust me. You will not find a nicer owner and a better location. It was truly paradise. The only downside is I couldn't stay longer.
