Overview
Condo/Apartment -
2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5
Sanibel Island, Florida
Relax in the ambiance of Olde Florida in our comfortable, 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom, 2nd-floor condo on the Gulf side of quiet West Gulf Drive, just over 100 yards from the Gulf of Mexico. Enjoy morning coffee on the screened-in lanai, overlooking lush landscaping and our private swimming pool. Toast Sanibel's glorious sunsets on our shell-filled Gulf beach. Experience the charm that is Breakers West: a family-friendly, 18-unit complex of mirror-image condos, close to shopping, dining and island adventures, yet quiet and peaceful, a world away from noise and crowds.

We're constantly working to "feather the nest" with at least one major project each year, and frequent additions to the "little niceties" like board games and puzzles, videos and tropical decor. In January, 2017, we installed brand-new, top-of-...

Interaction with guests
We love communicating with our guests, and have made many lasting friendships as a result of their visits. While we cannot greet you in person (we'd have no place to stay!), our rental-management office is right on Sanibel, en route to our condo; the keys, and a welcome-packet, will await you there.

And you can reach us at any time, day or night, we're a phone call/text/email away. We have a network of resources (maintenance and otherwise) whom we can call upon to assist you.

We take great pleasure in sharing with our guests, ideas for "doing-and-dining." We've put together a guidebook of helpful information (dining, sightseeing, bike routes, wildlife info, TV channels, etc). And we're delighted to help plan for a special occasion.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in March 2017

When I book accommodations I look for clean, comfortable, quiet and location. This hit three out of four with ease. The condo was very clean and well set up with a King bed in one room and two twins in the other. (The king was quite comfortable) There was a nicely stocked and relatively new kitchen. A good size dining...

My wife, two small children and I stayed for three nights and loved it. Apartment was well maintained and very cozy. Pool and easy beach access were great for small kids. Location is great. Convenient to shopping, but away from the bustle. Walking/bike path right across street. For runners, nice 5.5 mile loop.

We were so impressed by the personal service we received from Susan. She was a sweetheart from the moment I inquired (about 9 months in advance) and could not have been more helpful or pleasant to work with through the entire experience. The condo has so many unexpected and thoughtful amenities - from the kitchen (even has pitchers and trays...

About the neighborhood
Breakers West is located mid-island, 4.9 miles west from the Causeway exit. It is on the Gulf side of West Gulf Drive, a quiet residential street, midway between Tarpon Bay Rd and Rabbit Rd (and yes, they do have bunnies!). It's a short walk (just over 100 yards) from our condo to our shell-sand beach on the Gulf of Mexico; it faces West, perfect for Sanibel sunsets

Sanibel's restaurants, shops and attractions are easy to reach by car or bike, but a bit too far away to walk to (the "price" of peace-and-quiet). "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge is just on the other end of Rabbit Rd. Most places offer free parking; and most have bicycle-racks. One Sanibel's scenic bike-hike paths runs across the street past our building.
Getting around
Sanibel has no bus or trolley service; to get around, one must walk, drive, bike or taxi. Breakers West is on West Gulf Drive. The Gulf Drives (East, Middle, West) run parallel to and south of the main road, Periwinkle Way. Most restaurants and shops are on Periwinkle.

Tarpon Bay Rd is the quickest route to Periwinkle and "all things east." The Gulf Drives are a winding, quieter, more scenic alternative.

"Ding" Darling NWR, the Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum, and CROW Wildlife Rehab are all on San-Cap Rd, the western extension of Periwinkle, and just north of Breakers West. Sanibel's historic lighthouse is the other way, at the eastern tip of Sanibel.

One of the best ways to see Sanibel is by bicycle, on 25 miles of bike-hike paths.
