About the Owner

We lived (and still work) in Los Angeles but after having bought Southwinds, our wonderful, cozy beach house, we couldn't stop thinking about Sanibel. It's just magical. Shortly after having bought Southwinds, we decided to move to Sanibel permanently. It's an absolutely amazing place and we are so happy here in Paradise!

Awesome house right by beach! Private heated pool, hi-speed internet, bicycles
Sanibel Island Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Great place, even greater location!

  • 5 of 5
The house was great and had everything we needed including bikes which we used all the time. And the location really is perfect, just footsteps from the beach. The beach is vast and offers plenty of space so it never felt overcrowded.

Everything was nice and clean when we arrived.

Wouldn't hesitate going back!

Fun times on Sanibel!

I've stayed at this rental house a couples times now for big family vacations and absolutely loved it! The house itself is clean, spacious yet cozy, and super charming. There is an awesome pool and the house is literally 10 seconds from the beach. Kitchen is well stocked with supplies, which is great because we prefer to cook our own meal on vacation. I love that the house has bikes! Sanibel has awesome bikes paths and its our favorite way to get around the island. We love our stays on Sanibel and in this house is well situated and fully stocked w/ games and activities. I would definitely recommend!

Love this place!

This house is a great find. It's RIGHT by the beach without the right by the beach pricing. If you have kids, this is an excellent spot, nice little pool, so close to the beach that you don't have to carry a million things. The beach is fantastic. Tons of patio space for indoor/outdoor living. But watch out for "noseeums", get bug spray! House was nice and clean with seemingly brand new furniture and new paint. Nice big kitchen. This house had everything we needed in terms of phones, internet, cable and all of that as well. If you never been to Sanibel you have to see it, if you have you'd want to go again. We've been there many times and this house is a great deal for the money, you can't beat the location.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review our home. Certain times of the year, the no-seeums can be somewhat annoying. However they are not out in cold weather or in the sun, so you could easily avoid them. A tip on bug spray though; Regular bug spray does not work on no-seeums, it's both poisonous and ineffective. Best product is Avon's Skin So Soft which is a bath oil (strange, I know) that you can get on Amazon or in the local supermarket on Sanibel. Sladder it on and you will have soft, wonderfully smelling skin and be positively no-seeum free. :)


From the Owner

It's a cozy typical beach house, reminds me of beach houses in some places of Malibu, not fancy, just cool and homey. It's also on the beach, without the on the beach pricing.

From the Owner

So close to beach, just step out of gate and you are in the sand. We also love that the house is next door to Casa Ybel Resort in case you decide you don't want to cook. It's a short bicycle ride in to town, bicycle paths pretty much everywhere you want to go on Sanibel. It's a nice and quiet street but you can hear the waves crashing in.
