About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-5)

This one bedroom, one bathroom cottage is right on the sand & only 50 feet from the beach. This hidden gem is located on one of the world's best shelling beaches. Frommer's recently named Sanibel the #1vacation spot in the world. White Caps is a centrally located quaint beachfront complex with only 9 cottages. Watch dolphins & pelicans play right outside your front door while you enjoy the cool ocean breeze.

This beach cottage features a fully equipped kitchen with granite counter tops, a tile backslash and bright white cabinets. The kitchen also features a stainless under mount sink, dishwasher,ceramic cook top and oven. This island charmer will accommodate up to 5 people with a king bed in the master, a queen sleeper sofa, as well as a twin sleep sofa.

Enjoy your day at the beach with provided chairs, towels & umbrella. Ride the two complimentary bikes along the 23 miles of shared paved paths or watch a movie on the 50' flat screen TV.

FROM A GUEST! : Thank you so much for your lovely cottage! This was our best vacation rental so far (out of dozens we visited on 3 continents). The beach alone worth it! We will definitely be back :-)) The doorstep is only about 50 yards from the water line, and there is no board walk, or street, or parking lot, or steps to go across. Just 50 yards to the water - not to the beach! To the beach it is probably only 30 yards. Many others write 'close to the beach' in their ads - but it takes a lot of investigation (from the potential guest) to figure out what the beach access really looks like. For our family, beach proximity is the most important factor. For example, some big beach condo resort may also publish 'gulf-front' - but it can be so different! One has to take stairs, walk on asphalt parking lot, cross boardwalk - so it can be 200+ yards, or 10+ min of walking up and down. Compare it to 1 min walking on flat at your cottage! Your cottage is 'de-luxe equipped'

Why the Owner Chose White Caps Cottages: Sanibel is a tropical, natural, barrier island. Over 70% of the island is preserved as a national refuge. The weather always seems to be warm & sunny with gulf breezes keeping the palm trees swaying from the bay to the Gulf of Mexico. The island offers miles & miles of bike paths which for some is the sole mode of transportation. It is a secret paradise for those who want to relax and return to a simpler life, if even for just a few days.

The Unique Benefits of this Cottage: White caps #2 is one of only 8 ground level cottages situated right on the Gulf of Mexico. #2 offers you one of the world's best shelling beaches right at your doorstep. While you are here, you can visit the Ding Darling Nature Preserve, Bailey Matthews Shell Museum, Sanibel Historical Village, Big Arts, and CROW, the natural wildlife preservation on the island. Shopping and top rated restaurants are at your fingertips! Located on the West End of Sanibel you can also enjoy magnificent sunsets each evening which you cannot view when staying on the East End of the island.White Caps #2 has been completely remodeled for your lifestyle as we intended this to be our permanent home away from home & not a rental property. It wasn't until all our children returned with their children that we knew we had to move to larger quarters just a mile away, thus giving you the opportunity to enjoy all new appliances, granite counter tops, beautiful boardwalk tile flooring, and high speed Internet access.
