A spacious home with a fabulous deck overlooking the enclosed heated pool and bayou just beyond. A short walk to Bowman Beach where you will find the best shelling on the island. A wildlife sanctuary is at your fingertips everywhere you go. Ding Darling Refuge is across the street where you can bike, trolley, or drive through to experience wildlife at its best. If an evening at home is on the agenda there is ping pong, darts, games, puzzles, flat screen TV, or pool volley ball in the heated pool.
Keywords: Natures sounds wake you to a glimps of turtles, alligators, and anhenga over the bayou while Ibis walk through the front yard. Pluck your fresh tangellos or ruby reds from the front yard if you are here enjoying this space in January or February. Enjoy walking the beach and collecting shells during the day and return for an evening of fun in the heated pool or a game of ping pong, darts, or ring toss.
This home is very spacious and well-appointed with every detail for a wonderful vacation! Lovely, tranquil jungle-like setting with a large pool, incredible master stone shower, and very cool views of the bayou. So sad to leave!
This house was, bar none, the best rental we have ever stayed at. It is very secluded and private with dense mature landscaping and views overlooking the bayou. The house itself was very spacious, even more so than the pictures suggest, and the layout allowed for a fantastic indoor/outdoor living experience. There was a wall of sliding glass doors that opened onto a fabulous outdoor deck overlooking the large heated swimming pool. The entire area was contained within a screened lanai. The house is also quite close to Bowman’s Beach, and very walkable. We were able to get there in 15 minutes with 3 children (aged 5, 2, and 6 months) in tow. A couple of adults could easily do it in less than 10.
As for the amenities, the house was very well appointed. The master bedroom is basically its own enclave, with a vaulted ceiling, two decks and a full high-end bathroom. There were 3 other bedrooms on the other side of the house - a queen room, a twin room, and a bunk room. In terms of supplies, there really was everything you could possibly need for your stay. Each bathroom contained many extra rolls of toilet paper. Also provided was dish soap, laundry detergent, oil, spices, and cleaning supplies. They had more dishes, appliances and cookware than in our own kitchen. The pool was conveniently managed by Eli, the pool guy, every Wednesday morning, and our children very much enjoyed the many provided pool toys.
All in all, we loved our stay on Sanibel, and we can’t say enough about this house. It is a gorgeous retreat. Thank you Brooke for all your help!
