Come as you are! No worries ~ THIS IS A HASSLE-FREE HOLIDAY AT THE BEACH. STORYBOOK VACATION~
Picture yourself at a private beach in your own charming cottage. Seagrape Cottage is a tropical home a few 49 steps from a nearly private beach in a residential community within Olde Towne Sanibel. We're located on the East End of Sanibel Island near the Sanibel Lighthouse, the fishing pier & the Sanibel Marina. Our two bedroom, one bath cottage is adorable. The full kitchen is great for the cook who enjoys hanging out in the kitchen but still wants to be included where friends and family are relaxing. Unravel the secret of the lovely seashells of Sanibel Island as you walk down our stony lane to the practically private walkway directly onto the beach. You'll see dolphins at sunrise and at sunset at the nearby fishing pier.
Full kitchen is equipped with everything you need, Living and Dining room, counter bar and stools, tropical decor. Large enough for a couple to spend time together for a month or more. This is truly a dreamy beach cottage on a splendid little island in the tropics. What more could you desire! On the beach, everything is good....
Pleasant and relaxing ambience. You need bring nothing but yourself. We are on the bike path and a block from small shopping center. Seagrape Cottage is an alternative lifestyle to busy inns or condos.
Friendly & helpful locals are your neighbors. Our last guests went on a boat ride with one of their new friends from this residential street but people are never intrusive and you are left alone as you chose.
When you arrive you will have a special basket of goodies to enjoy -- Our gift to you: begin your holiday at Seagrape Cottage on the sunny shore of Sanibel Island.
Frommer's Rating gave Sanibel Island #! spot out of Ten Best Places to Visit in the World and Conde Naste Magazine said it is one of the top Ten Beaches
Conde Naste and US World & News says Sanibel/Captiva best of ten beaches in the USA
Anna told me she wanted to write something too; however, only one entry per guest booking is allowed. (She is Carter's partner from MN who said "Carry this Little Gem with Me" in the Guest Reviews.)
She told us that her favorite part of her visit to Sanibel was getting up early in the morning and running on the beach. She loved the fact that the beach was a few houses from the cottage so she could get there in only a few minutes.
During her run, she said she saw lots of dolphins and was amazed that they were so close to the shore. She hadn't seen dolphins in their own habitat before this time.
She'd then jump into the Gulf and swim for around 20 minutes (hoping to catch a ride on one of these lovely creatures;) then return to Seagrape Cottage, shower, eat breakfast on the screened porch and chill out for the rest of the morning.
Lunch was usually a 3 minute bike ride to Pinochio's famous Ice Cream Parlor a block away from the cottage. She said she "...justified the ice cream because the run equaled the calories so it was an even swap!" She and Carter already booked the cottage for this summer.
Thanks to Anna for her submission. As told to Karyn and Richard ;)
