SNOW WHITE OR SLEEPING BEAUTY MAY HAVE LIVED HERE WAY BACK WHEN
STORYBOOK-CHARMING VINTAGE BEACH COTTAGE ~TURN BACK TIME & RENEW YOUR CHILDHOOD MEMORIES ~ Savor the old time feel of Sanibel and Captiva Islands ~~ There is simply nothing like it in Florida. It's been a hidden gem to the world, but more and more people are learning about this out of the way island get-away. We are on the more residential, private area of the island.
Our beach cottage has two bedrooms and one bathroom, full kitchen, living room, dining area, screened porch with outdoor furniture, BBQ, private washer & dryer and everything you need for the home-away-from-home. You need nothing! All beach necessities are also on site.
Start your day with coffee on the enclosed porch or a walk at the beach. We provide the beach chairs, towels, cooler and umbrella.. Choose a book from our library and stroll to the beach. Bring your bikes or rent them from Billy's Bicycles on the Island -- (they provide pick up and delivery of your choice of bike) and you are good to go!
Seagrape Cottage has private access to a practically secluded beach only steps up the shell filled sandy path. (Seagrape Lane is considered to be THE best street on the island by many, including realtors because it is on the East End of the island and its proximity to the beach can't be beat.)
We are about a block away from Lighthouse Point, the Fishing Pier, Sanibel Marina, Lighthouse Cafe & Old Town Sanibel with its specialty shops, ice cream parlor & boutiques.
Sunday afternoons, bike or drive to the farmer's market and fill your basket with fresh fruits and veggies. Buy some fresh breads & pastries and have a picnic. These are memories you won't soon forget.
In the evenings, sip a glass of wine or tea and enjoy one of the many films at the cottage (Roku for streaming Amazon or Netflix). There's time to read, play Scrabble, start a jigsaw puzzle or whatever you do for relaxation after a day of sunshine and fun. And the stars in the Sanibel sky are brilliant so don't forget to take a late walk under the moon.
