Sanibel Inland Homes
One of the things that makes Sanibel such a beloved destination for residents and visitors alike is that nearly all its residential development is located in close proximity to a beautiful Gulf beach. This beach proximity has driven Sanibel home prices upward and made much of the island out of reach to many with more moderate housing budgets.
An option for those priced out of waterfront and near waterfront homes on Sanibel Island are inland neighborhoods which are located more than half a mile from the beach. Single-family homes in these neighborhoods offer off-island values at a convenient on-island location.
A luxury inland community located in the northwest area of Sanibel is the Sanctuary, a private golfing community adjacent to the J. N. Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge.
