About Beth

Hi travelers! Thanks for checking out my Sanibel home, Sanibel SEAclusion a place to relax, de-stress, have fun and be yourself. I'm a lawyer by day, but travel is my passion, and Sanibel is the only place that I continued to come back to year after year. Sanibel was my instant sanity check, de-stressing from the every day rigors of work and life. For me, Sanibel offers a bit of everything good -- Amazing shelling, biking, beautiful beaches, kayaking, fun shops, great restaurants and just an extremely relaxing atmosphere. If you haven't yet visited Sanibel and are looking for a beautiful place to relax and enjoy life, check it out. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Guestbook comments from the owner

When you picture where you want to spend your vacation time in Sanibel, picture yourself here. This is a newly updated and very well maintained property on a private street. There are no loud parties to contend with or high traffic areas. The house is equipped with every modern convenience (cappuccino machine!), is tastefully decorated, and is situated in the heart of the island minutes from the beach, local restaurants and sights. The bedrooms are ample size and come in all flavors: king, twin, bunks, private apartment, and the outside areas equipped with a grill, deck chairs, tables etc. There are quiet nooks inside and outside the house, which are perfect places to read a book or magazine or listen to music. Each morning was started with a jog or walk on one of many trails, the weather was stunning and the beaches clean and well maintained. I can't say enough about how satisfied and rejuvenated I was during my stay and can only wait to get back again soon. A great home in a great setting.

Wonderful Christmas on Sanibel Island!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location -- quiet and serene home but only a block from restaurants, groceries and shops. Lots of room for everyone -- sleeping, hanging out on the porch, cooking, sitting down for Christmas dinner. We especially enjoyed biking EVERYWHERE! Beaches are 10-15 minutes away and no need to pay for parking (which is limited). We were there a month and only left the island to pick up and drop off people at the airport -- we didn't want to leave the island. So much fun

Extended Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family "travel in tribes" and it's not always easy to find a vacation rental that can accommodate us all comfortably. Sanibel Seaclusion was able to accommodate all 10 of us with ease. Seaclusion is a well- equipped home away from home in beautiful surroundings. From ease of booking - Beth was super easy to deal with, to accommodations and comfort we could not be happier. Meal times were a treat - with all 10 of us comfortably seated around the dinner table. Rooms were comfortable and well appointed. Two rooms with King size beds were terrific for the 2 couples and plenty beds for the kids. The girls delighted in the 3rd bedroom and the boys got the loft. Wether you are a party of adults or a mix of adults and kids - Seaclusion makes a wonderful home base. One caution - if anyone in your party is unable to do stairs, this is not your rental as living areas are upstairs. Thank you Beth for sharing your wonderful home with us.

Sanibel Decompression!

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation to Sanibel was initially meant to mark a milestone birthday for me, but it was so much more than that. I spent time with my children, friends, family friends, we ate, we laughed, we cried, it was a wonderful week that we all so very much needed away from our normal daily lives. Beth's house is conducive to living at home, in as much as having all of the necessities and a few extras, that you don't even have to think of anything at all! We rode the bikes, used the beach toys, used the grill, cooked food, played games, watched was therapy on the island!! We loved our time and hope to go back very soon. I have a special someone that would like to go with me next time!! :)

I would encourage anyone, families, friends, significant use this method of exploring a wonderful, memory filled vacation!

A week of pure relaxation !

  • 5 of 5

The week we spent here was one of the best vacation experiences I have ever had. The house is beautiful, spacious and comfortable. Everything we needed was provided. It was great not having to pack the day to day items.

The house has ample sleeping arrangements and bathrooms. The kitchen is large enough to accommodate 8 adult women :-)

I am planning on returning with my family next time.

Sanibel Peace

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was originally planned as a celebration for a significant birthday and ended up being that and so much more to me. There was every possible accomodation one person/family could want to have for the perfect vacation or getaway! We used the bikes, many of the beach toys, the grill, the porch, ....everything that you would need to have the perfect t ime! We cooked most meals at home which saved us time and koney to do other things we wantes. Shopping proved to be better than expected for some of us! ;) I will look forward to the next time I can return with great anticipation!
