About Keith Isaacson

We are long time Sanibel visitors that started visiting Sanibel by staying in condo's and eventually moved to renting a home. In 2008 we bought our first house on Sanibel as a second home and rental and now we have added this house in 2011 as a second home and rental. Guests often tell us that they can tell we stay in our homes because they are so well equipped. We make them very homey and comfortable with everything you need for a great vacation. We enjoy Sanibel and the opportunity to share our homes with many wonderful people.

Keith Isaacson purchased this house in 2011

Why Keith Isaacson chose Sanibel Island

We bought this home because it first and foremost has a wonderful West End location Very close to the beach! The floor plan is great with loads of space in almost 1,800 sq feet of actual living space. For example the Master Bedroom is 14 ft x 18 ft, very spacious and comfortable with a king size bed plus of course, has a master bath and large walk-in closet. Our guest bedrooms are very large with a second master bedroom with a walk out to the lanai and a king size bed. The second guest bedroom has two full or double beds comfortably providing a great deal of sleeping space. Virtually the entire home has a beautiful hardwood floor and is open and airy with high ceilings. A centerpiece of the home is the 12 ft x 24 ft covered lanai overlooking the large screened pool and pool deck. The lanai has a comfortable sitting area and a table seating 6 with a kitchen pass through window for convenience. Guests love watching TV while enjoying being outdoors! The pool is heated of course and has a sitting bench. The back yard is private and tropical.

What makes this house unique

The most unique benefits to our home are the very short distance to the beach and the wonderful lanai and pool area. Two master bedrooms is wonderful for our many guests that use them with each bedroom offering a king size bed for spacious comfort. Our home is extremely well maintained and we here from many experience guests that our home is by far the best equipped home they have ever rented on Sanibel. Now wonder we have so many returning guests!

5 MINUTE WALK TO BEACH-Large Lanai with TV Screened Heated Pool- 2 King Bedrooms
average rating of 5.0 based on 9 reviews

Wonderful retreat minutes from everything!

  • 5 of 5

Love the lanai and screened in, heated pool! We enjoyed many a lazy afternoon relaxing on the lanai and in the pool. We loved that the adults could enjoy drinks and watch TV on the lania while still keeping an eye on our two young boys in the pool! The house was beautifully furnished and well-kept, and the layout allowed everyone their "own space." We hope to stay here again some day! Thank you, Keith and Mary!

Taste of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Summer of 2017 will be our fourth consecutive summer in Mary and Keith’s beautiful house at Sanibel. We love the house which have all the equipment you can wish for, we love the short 5-min walk among the palms to the fantastic beach were the dolphin swims, we love the garden were the children can pick coconuts, we love the pool were all our children has learned to swim. We love the possibility to bicycle around the island. The quietness of Sanibel has become a kind of paradise for us.

Paradise island escape home

  • 5 of 5

We have rented the Lake Murex house from Keith and Mary for the last five years for the months of March and April and hope to do so for many years. The description and pictures on their web site are very accurate but do not do justice to the lifestyle that we quickly adopt to during our stay. We love to watch the sunsets on the nearby beach with great access and to enjoy the heated pool after a long walk or bike ride. We eat many meals and watch TV on the outdoor area. The layout of the house is great for having guests and family while maintaining our privacy. Keith and Mary are very responsive to any issue that may arise during our stay and the house is always immaculate upon our arrival.

Best home rental on Sanibel

  • 5 of 5

We have rented several homes on Sanibel and this home is the nicest, most well equipped home with a five minute walk to the beach. The pool and lenai areas are beautiful. The bed arrangements are better then most rentals -- Kings in 2 bedrooms and large beds in the third. Every guest will be comfortable in this roomy unit

Sanibel Island, Lake Murex holiday home

  • 5 of 5

One of the main concerns when travelling on any holiday is 'what will the accomodation be like'. Rest assured, 399 Lake Murex will not disappoint you. This is the fourth time we have rented from Keith and Mary (twice at Lake Murex) and they make sure that nothing is too much trouble to ensure that we are comfortable.

Normally there are five of us on holiday, four adults and a child and there is plenty of room for all.

The house is well located on Sanibel with easy access to the beach and is very convenient for the stores, shops and restuarants. We particularly enjoy the pool for early morning swims and to cool off as temperatures rise. The house is always clean, very well equipped and being from the UK, the little things like a kettle are really appreciated.

What about Sanibel Island? most people who visit seem to return. We find it very laid back and relaxing, it provides everything that we need on this type of holiday. Great beaches, good fishing and usually lots of sunshine. There is an extensive cycle track along the island, so using the bikes provided by Keith and Mary we normally get some exercise and explore the island at the same time. Make sure that you take plenty of water with you (and drink it) as it can be easy to get dehydrated in the high temperatures!

We enjoy lunch at 'Traders', evening meals at Lazy Flamingo, Doc Fords or picking up some quality fish or meat at Jerry's and just having a barbeque at the home.

We can definitely recommend this house and hope to return to Sanibel soon.

West Gulf Beaches
Car: recommended

Our home is located about one mile west of the intersection of West Gulf and Tarpon Bay Road and sits just a block off of West Gulf in the Lake Murex neighborhood. The house is a VERY short 5 minute walk from the beautiful West end Gulf beaches which are quiet and loaded with seashells. Beach fishing is amazing. Ding Darling National Wildlife refuge is just a short bicycle (4 adult bicycles provided) or car ride away and features abundant bird watching, wildlife viewing, kayak rentals, pontoon rentals, fishing guides, and more. The Shell Museum, Historical Museum, and live theater are within a few minutes drive. Great restaurants and shopping are readily available from our location. Two public golf courses and the Sanibel Recreation Center are just minutes away, all available to the public for a fee.
