Our condo is a direct Gulf front unit. The view from our unit is direct out to the Gulf, overlooking our pool and beautiful natural vegetation of seagrapes, sea oats, and palm trees. Our primary view is over the native vegetation and beach straight out to the Gulf, where warm waters wash up on Sanibel's 15 miles of beautiful uninterupted beach.

Sanibel Island is perfect for a beach vacation. The beaches are wide and natural, and they are sprinkled with seashells that Sanibel is known for worldwide. While looking for unique shells you can walk 15 miles of uninterrupted Gulf of Mexico beach. The warm gulf waters are seldom rough, and the water depth increases gradually from the beach providing a large swimming area and discouraging boats from coming in too close to swimmers. There are no undertow's or riptides to worry about in these calm Gulf waters. Beach chairs and toys are usually available in our condo's the ground floor storage closet.

Besides the beach, take advantage of White Sands private tennis court and heated pool. There is little chance of them ever being crowded since you're only sharing them with the 13 other condos in White Sands! Explore the island on the 22 miles of bike paths, part of which is right infront of White Sands. We generally have bikes for your use in the ground floor storage unit for our condo.

Sanibel is a coastal barrier island, located just off the coast of Fort Myers, Florida. There are many things that make Sanibel unique and reminiscent of old Florida - there are no traffic lights, neon lights, or buildings taller than four stories on the island. The formation of the J.N. "Ding" Darling Wildlife refuge over half a century ago set the stage for a stringent development plan and zoning code that have allowed the island to carefully develop with modern conveniences while preserving nature and maintaining a very natural appearance.

The Fort Myers airport (code RSW) is just across town, less than an hour away, and it is serviced by many major airlines. The Cape Coral airport is another 20 minutes further and is served by some additional airlines.
