Walk To The Famous Sanibel Beach!

Private room in house hosted by Christine
4 guests2 bedrooms2 beds1 private bath
I am renting my 2 queen size bedrooms with shared private bath while I am in winter/fall residence. I provide gourmet breakfast/brunch! You save $15+ per plate to eat breakfast anywhere on Sanibel! I rent entire 3 BR home in off season. Eat Lunch/dinners at incredible restaurants and delis close by. Walk or bike to the beach in minutes. I am required to allow a month minimum occupancy to one party per month, by Sanibel regulations, so ask questions for more information.

The space
Sanibel is an amazing island, with more land in nature preserves than developed. The beaches are one of the best in the US for shelling and they go on for miles. Great shopping, one movie theater, museums, miles of paved and off road bike trails, with no stop lights or neon signs or gaudy high rises. Wildlife is spectacular and includes alligators, bobcats, coyotes, and spectacular bird life. Please google Sanibel and Captiva to learn more.

Guest access
You are 5 minutes by car to the grocery store, restaurants, an incredible Rec Center, amazing beaches, Ding Darling Nature Preserve and museum, Shell Museum, etc. Or drive a bit further to Captiva Island and charter a fishing boat or take a cruise around the area. Activities are too numerous to list! While I am there, we share LR, DR, Lanai, Pool. In the summer, if you rent the entire 3 BR home, including my king bedroom suite, you share nothing!

Other things to note
The housing market for the winter months here is such a high demand that everything is booked years in advance. I am hoping Airbnb will allow you to see for yourself why Sanibel is so special. I have everything needed for the beach, pool towels, 2 bikes and a two person kayak. Just bring your warm weather clothing and one outfit for cooler conditions.
If I am in residence and renting just my two queen bedrooms and bath, or if you are renting the entire home off season, I leave plenty of towels, sheets, pool and beach towels, beach tents, beach toys, flippers, masks etc etc. Just pack your clothes and come!

My breakfasts are huge. Bacon eggs fruit compote, coffee cake, waffles or Swedish pancakes, juice, freshly ground coffee etc.

Our lake does have alligators. They are well fed and happy but no splashing, wading or swimming allowed, obviously!

Great neighbors, the peace and quiet, the lakes, the amazing bird life and the close proximity to everything without any traffic congestion. Ideal location. We can hear the gulf waves at night. Lake noises are amazing at night. Birds and frogs talking. You can even hear baby alligators calling to their mom!

Hardly retired! I am a licensed dog trainer, and have online stores. I exercise on my bike and in the water. No better place than Sanibel to stay active. I spend summers in Traverse City, MI.
During your stay
I live here alone with my dog and one cat during the winter months. I will be sharing my home with you. As in any Bed and Breakfast, kitchen is closed once I cook your breakfast! You have one private TV or you are welcome to watch with me in the living room. I have a large screen enclosed heated pool, overlooking the lake. Bird life here is wonderful. This neighborhood is very quiet and my home is amazingly private.

During off season I can rent out my entire home if available which includes the king size master suite with attached bathroom. Rates reflect this. I rent my home for minimum of a month. Discuss if interested! Calendar will show availability. I mostly have repeat guests! You have everything needed here. Beach stuff, pool stuff, kayak, 2 bikes etc. Unlike most rentals here, off season, I leave you tons of supplies to save you money at the grocery story. Even spices and cooking oils etc No food though! Most empty homes leave 1 packet for washer, dishwasher, 1 roll tp, 1 paper towel etc. $$ Gourmet kitchen with every appliance you need Check in by 11 PM. You must checkout by 11AM.
