Sanibel Island Florida - Exclusive Listings - Set Apart Location

By
Real Estate Agent with Sandals Realty

Sanibel is an exclusive island community just off the coast of Southwest Florida's mainland.  It has remained an artists retreat, the Europeans tropical paradise and the executive's private and exclusive island club.  Sanibel Island is close to Fort Myers' Southwest International Airport and is easily accessible from the mainland. 

Sanibel is set apart from the noise of new construction and "cookie cutter model homes" that are found in many mainland communities.  Homes on Sanibel are built with architecture that reflects a true romantic old Florida Island style.  The water-views from the expansive decks and porches are truly breathtaking.  These homes are designed with vaulted or cathedral ceilings to create a sense of openness and to bring the Florida sun streaming in from the many windows.  Many people from the north find their spirits renewed when day after day they awake to blue skies and endless sunshine. 

 

With canals only minutes from open waters in the Gulf of Mexico, Sanibel is truly a boater's dream come true.  Manatees and dolphins are common visitors that live and play in and around the waters on the island.  More than 70% of Sanibel Island is taken up by nature preserves.  Birds such as ibises, ospreys, eagles, pelicans and herons have made Sanibel Island their sanctuary.  The natural beaches are homes to gopher tortoises who lay their eggs in the warm sand. 

The island also offers exclusive spas, restaurants and golf communities amidst its lush tropical surroundings.  It is also "family friendly" boasting of having the 2cnd highest rated school in the state of Florida.  There are opportunities for youth to participate in the rehabilitation of wildlife through the CROWS Program.  Many families also find rest and renewal for thier spirits at any one of the several churches on the island. 

Homes on Sanibel Island consistently see appreciation in value year after year.  This island community remains an exclusive high end real estate market second to none.

Gorgeous pictures Joy.  I love Sanibel Island because it is so pretty and the calmness of the gulf compared to the east coast.  We had vacation there a while back and we enjoyed every bit of it.  I would recommend a vacation in Sanibel to everybody if you have never been there.
