About the property

Spacious 3BR/3BA on a private beach, Minimum 28 day rental

Whether you are a beach lover, a birdwatcher, or on a hunt for the perfect sunset, our home is just the place for you!

Located on a private white sand beach, towards the end of a secluded peninsula, the house has 270 degree panoramic views of 3 bodies of water (San Carlos Bay, Tarpon Bay, and Ladyfinger Lake).

It is also situated in the heart of the Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge. A variety of bird species perch on our dock during the day, and you can spot dolphins and manatees playing just a few yards away. The property is also home to a family of endangered gopher tortoises! Watch the wildlife from the comfort of the home, or take a kayak out to the nearby Rookery Islands for a truly spectacular showing of birds.

The house itself has been recently constructed (mid 2011), with all modern amenities, appliances and styling. There is a pool and a hot tub, multiple TVs, WiFi, massaging shower heads, and a Bosch gas stove for the master chef.

This house is our little slice of heaven that we'd love to share with you. There's nothing like watching the sun set on the bay from the rooftop deck, or falling asleep to the soft crashing of the waves just 15 yards from the bedroom window. We hope you take a look for yourself!

Sanibel Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing! It's a secluded location but yet only 5-10 minute drive to all the main shops, restaurants, and beaches of Sanibel. Loved sitting on the porch or on the dock in the morning and watching all the marine life and birds (large heron everywhere) in a quiet and peaceful environment. The house itself is also excellent; large living room with fantastic TV and speaker set up and all three bedrooms are large with their own bathrooms. The kitchen is spacious and well stocked; and the washer and dryer are a definite must and were greatly appreciated. The owner was very responsive if any questions. If you're looking for a private and luxurious place for a larger group or family then this house is perfect!

Amazing vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We just completed our family vacation at this wonderful house.

The home is situated at the end of a road, and faces the large bay which is about 75 feet away from the house. The views are magnificent and you can see dolphins and manatees from the bedroom , living room ,dining area and patio. The location is very private,

The house itself is very modern and very well decorated and furnished.

There is a very large outdoor pool and jacuzzi which was fun to bathe in the late afternoons. If you want to get real close to the water, there is a deck with 2 chairs where you can sit and watch all the different birds and if lucky, see the dolphins and manatees.

The owner, Dr Khai , is very responsive and always replied to any questions we had very promptly , as other reviewers have stated. We have stayed at several rentals, and have never received such prompt responses from the owner- it was a pleasure to work with him from start to finish.

We went fishing -- I learned that if you want to go out on a fishing excursion in the bay, you can be picked up from the dock in front of the house. We also played golf at one of the beautiful golf courses just off the island.

We were 6 people and the sleeping arrangements were perfect and comfortable.

We did a lot of research before we chose this place, and are so happy we did.

If you want to vacation in luxury on Sanibel Island, look no further than this outstanding hone.

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay and we can't imagine a more perfect place to luxuriously enjoy beautiful views, solitude, quiet and nature.

The furniture is very back friendly. The couch and lounge chair looked to be by the same maker as my couch, Stressless, and they're very comfortable. I slept in the guest bedroom and I was initially worried that the bed was too soft, but I woke up without back pain, which is a miracle.

The owner was very responsive and my damage deposit was refunded right away.

Excellent property very attentive owner wonderful home recently updated recommended 100%. The location is to die for a private beach literally right in nature dolphins passing by daily a dock that was very useful for the boat rental we did A minor issue with Comcast which the owner took care of immediately. I can't tell you how much effort the owner Dr. Ghai did to resolve this issue the place is absolutely beautiful and could easily sleep 8 to 10 people I got very spoiled with the elevator and the sunset views are on suppressed from the dock all in all I rate this vacation five stars especially since the owner was so accessible it was obvious that he had our best interest in mind and wanted to make our stay there the best possible I can't recommend this place highly enough
