Looking for a month stay in January 2014

My wife and I love Sanibel and would like to stay at a condo on the beach for the entire month of January or for at least 4 weeks sometime in January early February. Anyone know of private owners that may be willing to offer a deal for a month? Interested in at least a 1 BR with a pool and Spa/hot tub.

January you might get a deal, Feb would be harder. Try VBRO and ask some owners. 10% might be it. Off beach you'd do better. Not many beachfront 1 bedrooms available.

Be sure check with the owners of White Caps cottages too. No pool, but great location. Expensive for what you get.

You can also check with places like Gulf Breeze cottages. They might cut a discount.

Try Caribe Beach Resort (on the beach) and Colony Beach Resort. Both have efficiency to 1 bedrooms units that rent very reasonably.

The units at Colony sit behind the duplex townhouse condos that are individually owned, so even though they are technically on beachfront property, you have further to walk to the beach itself. That said, overall, an excellent buy and many units have been nicely updated. On East Gulf near the Lighthouse.

Caribe Beach Resort is nearer the beach and are recently renovated efficiency units with Murphy beds plus a couple of true 1 bedroom units. They are much closer to the beach and some have beach views.

The next level would be units that are further from the beach, but not substantially lower in price.

Sunshine Island Inn Is a great just off beach location and super popular. On the east end, you just cross the street to the beach path.

West End Paradise is a great choice if you'd like a quiet, residential area with a walk down a private lane to the beach. Surrounded by sanctuary and protected wetlands, it's hugely popular with folks who want a more natural environment away from the more developed areas.

Periwinkle Cottages is just 4 units on the same 'U' development as West End Paradise.

NOTE: West End Paradise and Periwinkle Cottages have no pools.

Located at the bottom of the 'U' where Periwinkle Cottages and West End Paradise are located on Sanibel's west end, is Tropical Winds Resort. They have one and two bedroom units on the beach and classic old cottage off beach. Nothing fancy, but on the beach.

These are you most cost effective options.
