Sanibel Real Estate

sanibel bridge sanibel island

Sanibel is the best known of the 100 Southwest Florida barrier islands. Conde Nast readers recently voted Sanibel one of the “Best North American Islands."  Coastal Living Magazine also recently named Sanibel the "top shelling beach in the United States."

Sanibel offers the slow pace of island life with a mix of unique shops, galleries, theater and restaurants along its famed Periwinkle Way. Visitors are attracted by the unspoiled coastline and mild waters that invite swimming year-round. Sanibel’s white pristine beaches, located on the southern shores, yield more than 200 varieties of shells, giving name to the “Sanibel Stoop,” the posture associated with shell-collecting. The “Causeway Beaches” are beloved by families for picnicking, swimming, fishing and even windsurfing in a casual and relaxed setting.  Read more about Sanibel real estate.

Sanibel Gulf Front Estate Homes

Sanibel's West Gulf Drive is world renowned for its wonderful collection of gulf front estate homes. The beautiful beaches along Sanibel's Gulf coast provide a wonderful back-drop for a luxury beachfront life-style. Sanibel communities offering a gulf-front setting include Gulf Ridge and Gulf Shores. These luxury communities hold their own against any other in Southwest Florida.

Sanibel Beach Communities

The single-family communities located along the both sides of Gulf Drive offer quick access to the miles of sandy shoreline on Sanibel Island. Many of these communities offer deeded access rights and in some cases direct paths to the beach. Sanibel Beach access communities include: Chateaux Sur Mer; East Rocks; Gulf Ridge; Gulf Shores; Lake Murex and Sea Oats. In addition to these, there are many other Sanibel communities that offer beach access. We have access to the complete inventory of listings in Sanibel beach access communities.

Sanibel Gulf Access Homes

Boating in the gulf waters around Sanibel is a past-time enjoyed by many Southwest Floridians. Favorite boating activities include fishing for Tarpon in Pine Island Sound, visiting Cabbage Key Island for a Cheeseburger in Paradise and shelling at Cayo Costa. Sanibel communities that offer gulf access boating include: Caloosa Shores; Sanibel Estates; Sanibel Isles; Shell Harbor and Water Shadows. Sanibel gulf access communities offer canal-front living in a variety of prices ranges and settings.

Protecting Sanibel

Sanibel Island is one of the few places where one can experience Florida in its natural state. Located on the south western coast of the Florida Peninsula, Sanibel Island is a natural refuge for a wide variety of marine life. Restrictions on development in Sanibel Island protect this barrier island, a natural haven for many of the state’s native flora and fauna. Formed some six thousand years ago by the constant flow of ocean waves, its sandy shoreline, worn smooth with the help of time, contrasts the tall palm trees and gnarls of mangroves that shape the island’s interior. Perhaps it is this landscape that dictates the peace and tranquility felt. As my guests always note, to swim with a manatee or be greeted by a heron each day is not uncommon.

First inhabited 2,500 years ago, Sanibel Island has been slow to develop and not without intension. Today, residents enjoy the richness of the island while working to protect its natural wonders. Building and development along the shore and within the island is heavily restricted, unlike many of Florida’s other coastal cities. There is a three-story height limit for all development and sixty percent of the island is protected as undeveloped park or refuge land.

Sanibel Wildlife

Sanibel is home to a large variety of Florida wildlife, including rare birds, alligators, and dolphins. The world-renowned J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge attracts naturalists and budding wildlife enthusiasts, providing visitors with the opportunity to see exotic birds and animals in their natural habitat.  This refuge is the largest in the American South and is home to hundreds of unique species.

Sanibel Recreation

Besides shelling and wildlife, Sanibel offers 27 miles of protected bike paths, kayaking and deep sea fishing through pristine waters of Pine Island Sound and the Gulf.  Sunset cruises, island hopping and dolphin excursions appeal to the romantic at heart.

Sanibel Attractions

The Sanibel Lighthouse, located on the island’s eastern tip, has long been guiding families and romantics to the vacation of their dreams on Sanibel.  The Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum is offers an interesting view of seashells with attractions for all ages.

Sanibel Location

Sanibel is located 30 minutes south of Fort Myers and is accessed via McGregor Boulevard from Downtown Fort Myers and Summerlin Road from RSW International Airport.  The Island is separated from the mainland via a causeway and toll bridge.  Captiva Island is located across Blind Pass, directly to the northwest of Sanibel.

Sanibel Island is truly the laid back alternative with something for everyone. Though the city of Sanibel lacks a single traffic light, keeping the pace of life relaxed, there are enough charming boutiques and tasty restaurants to entertain even the most refined of tastes.

Sanibel Vacant Land

Building the home of your dream on this tropical island is an option that many have realized over the years. While building codes are strict and vacant land is scarce, there are some Sanibel vacant lots left to build on. Another option gaining popularity on Sanibel, particularly in waterfront settings is a tear-down. Once you have found the perfect lot, we can connect you with some of the finest builders in the area.

Sanibel Gulf Access Condos

Sanibel is a boating oasis with the fine waters of Pine Island Sound and the Gulf just minutes away from a Sanibel Gulf access condo. Imagine the convenience of having your boat docked right behind your condo and available for use at any time. Sanibel gulf access condo options include: Mariner Pointe; Sanibel Arms and Tennisplace. Gulf access condos are available to meet the widest range of budgets and tastes.

Sanibel Resort Condos

Many Southwest Floridians first discovered the area during a vacation stay at a Sanibel resort condo. Most of these properties are located along Gulf Drive with direct access to Sanibel's world renown beaches. Condos at resort complexes can generate a significant revenue stream for their owners. Sanibel resort condos include: Loggerhead Cay; Oceans Reach; Sanibel Arms West and Sundial. There are many, many more and we have complete access to the entire inventory.
