Sanibel Island, Florida
Beautiful sea-side look home only a short walk from some of the finest shelling beaches in the world. The 1800 sq.' two bedroom home has fully-equipped modern kitchen with attached dining nook overlooking the tropical landscape. The Family Room features a full size sleeper sofa and the second bedroom has two twin beds. The Master Suite features a large bath with a 2 person jacuzzi tub and separate walk-in shower. The attached walk through closet brings you to the master bedroom. Here you'll find the Queen-sized bed and French doors opening to a large wrap-around porch with rockers. As you enter the porch you have a spiral staircase leading up to the private rooftop sundeck - also great for star-gazing at night!
Every amenity you would want for a memorable family vacation or a romantic get-a-way.

This home is aptly named! "Sanibel Escape" is just what the name implies!! The home is beautiful and well kept! Nancy and Dave always go that extra mile to make you feel as if you are walking into your own home. As always, the bud vase and candies on the bed tray are just one of the personal touches they do. They make sure you have what you need to have a great "escape". There...

Sanibel Escape truly has it all. Very comfortable home, with the emphasis on "home." Renting other properties on Sanibel over almost 30 years, I am always disappointed that we have to bring our own beach towels, purchase beach chairs, rent bicycles, and often have to provide many essential paper products. Not at Sanibel Escape. Since we are beach people and enjoy biking around the island, we were happy that we were about a block from...

Thank you so much, Jeff and Pam, for your great review. We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your 'get-a-way' at Sanibel Escape and that we had on hand all you needed to make your stay a memorable one. Would love to have you as our guests again, should you return to Sanibel. Have a great summer! Dave...

Our family of five stayed at the "Sanibel Escape" from 8/14/15 - 8/23/15...my husband, three older teens, and I. August can be a rainy month as the owner cautioned me, but our entire stay was beautiful, sunny, and hot. During the late afternoons, we occasionally experienced some distant rumbles of thunder and passing sprinkles, but the weather would clear moments later. The days ended with glorious sunsets that would become more amazing with each passing...

We appreciate so much all the thought gone in to writing such a wonderful review of 'Sanibel Escape'! It makes us want to take a month off and vacation there ourselves :) We are so happy when our 'home away from home' creates fond memories of a fantastic get-a-way for both families and couples. Look forward to having you return...
