Sanibel and Captiva Islands are world renowned for their beautiful shelling beaches (ranked 3rd in the world after Australia and The Figis). Besides it's breathtaking tropical feel, the islands are very unusual since you won't find a traffic light or any building over three stories. They have kept the islands the way nature intended with over 2/3 of the island dedicated as a wildlife sanctuary. Sanibel is also known for its wonderful bike paths, everywhere on the island are trails for hiking or biking. Wildlife is in abundance here and some of the most fabulous birding is found on this island. You can find boating and sailing and fishing anywhere on the island. If you like kayaking or canoeing, this is the place for you. Restaurants abound, some of the finest cuisine in Southwest Florida can be tasted on these barrier islands. We have quaint shopping, golf, movie theater, fitness center and tennis courts, we have it all on this spectacular tropical island.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our stay was absolutely wonderful! Accommodations were welcoming, furniture was inviting and beds were comfortable. The whole unit was up to date with everything you need and plenty of room. There were 4 of us there during our stay, but there was plenty of room for more if necessary. The pool was just steps away. The walk to the beach was short and easy. One of the best things was the location. Proximity to shops and treats was so close, you could walk faster than drive. Ice cream (Pinocchio's), decadent treats (Geppetto's), Restaurant (Lighthouse Cafe), and snacks at the East End Deli.

Great visit. Looking forward to going back! Highly recommended

This home is a WINNER!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful home in August and it was wonderful. The place is very well maintained and exceptionally clean. The kitchen looks brand new and was fully stocked with every thing we needed. The living room was comfortable and large enough for all of us to watch t.v. There a two nice size bedrooms on the first floor that share a bathroom and a huge loft upstairs with a private bath. The home is very open and spacious. Everyone who rents from VRBO knows the most important thing is cleanliness and trust me this place is very clean and in great condition.

The main selling feature for me was the backyard pool which was a wonderful way to end a hot day at the beach. The kids loved coming home to our private pool and swimming while my husband grilled dinner. We also loved the large lanai for eating meals and playing cards at night.

The location of this house is perfect. It is an easy walk to both the gulf and the bay. An ice cream parlor, bakery, deli, and convenience store is a quick 2-minute walk. My husband loved walking over in the morning for coffee, newspaper, and a “Sanibel Blossom” (make sure to try one at the bakery – they are delicious) and the kids loved running over at night for ice cream.

We really loved our vacation on Sanibel and will certainly be re-booking this vacation home. Trust me - you won’t be disappointed.

Loved the duplex, private and quiet. Clean and stocked with everything you need. The grill was nice.

Very comfortable beds. I love that is across the street from Lighthouse cafe and close to the public beach.

Villa at East Gulf Drive, Sanibel Island, FL

  • 4 of 5

Great month. Weather in May is very comfortable. Villa location was perfect. Walk to bay beach 5 minutes. Walk to Gulf beach 7 minutes. Walk to lighthouse 12 minutes. Italian ice cream at Pinocchio's, Geppetto's artisan foods for foodies, and the Lighthouse Cafe breakfast and lunch 2 minute walk. Great beds, brand-new kitchen, large screened in porch with stairs down to refreshing pool, and garage to keep the car out of the sun. Why not 5 stars? Nothing is perfect. Our reservation for next year has been made and our deposit is in the bank. We loved it.
