Island Vacation – “Harbour House” – Dog Friendly Too!
average rating of 5.0 based on 6 reviews


  • 5 of 5

Harbour House met and exceeded all of our many fantasies of a vacation in Sanibel. The home is spacious, comfortable, fully equipped, and caringly decorated. From the sliding glass doors, the views reveal themselves: pelicans, ibis, an occasional dolphin, palm trees, mangroves, and clear fresh water rising and falling with the tides.

If all this is not enough, and it is, right across the road is a perfect Gulf of Mexico beach with shells galore, diving pelicans, and very few people. This was our first trip to Sanibel but we have already reserved for next year with Chip, a most excellent host.

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from Sanibel and the Harbour House. The undisturbed area is the Florida I remember

from my youth. Lots of recent upgrades and everything you need to make your vacation perfect

This will be our 3rd trip to Sanibel and we always stay at one of Chips homes. You and your family

will make lifetime memories.

Tropical Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We like to bring our boat so we rented the Harbour House because it's on the water and includes a boat dock right out front and it was just perfect. Comfortable and clean. Our favorite was the big screen enclosed lanai that looked out over the water. Beautiful views and we loved having the marina right around the corner for bait & tackle. The manager Chip made sure we were comfortable and recommended all the good placed to eat on the island. Traders and The Madhatter were our favorites. A great house and a great beach and a wonderful experience. Highly recommended.

A tropical paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great relaxing vacation. First, the house is in an awesome location. Right on the bay with gardens and tropical surroundings Chip, the manager has put in since the pictures. I saw Dolphins and all kinds of sea birds. The house itself was very clean, comfortable and furnished with everything you'd need including beach towels! The beach is about a 2 or 3 minute walk and we did lots of shelling and beach combing. Sun sets were beautiful. Planning to stay there again next August! Thank you.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The Harbour house is great and ideally situated steps form the beacj=h and with the bay in your back yard. This is the third time we have stayed at this location. Everything is in the home especially if you like to cook....a very well equipped kitchen. We ahd 1 dog and 3 adult children, but we did not feel cramped. Chip the manager is great. and will do everything possible to make the stay great. We will be back next year!

Sanibel Island is a barrier island just off the southwest coast of Florida by Fort Myers. Sanibel is about 12 miles long and 4 miles wide, and is known around the world for its fabulous shelling beaches. Due to Sanibel Island's unique geographical orientation, lying East to West instead of North to South, it acts as a scoop and gathers seashells along its beaches. Throughout the year, thousands of visitors come to enjoy Sanibel's beaches and hunt for that special seashell. Sanibel has an average temperature of about 75 degrees. While Sanibel Island is a wildlife refuge in and of itself, over 60% of the island is protected wildlife preserves. There are over 26 miles of bike trails and over 17 miles of beautiful beaches.
