"Have you ever… dreamed of being on a tropical island, your toes in the soft white sand, an expansive beach, swaying coconut palms, lush tropical foliage and beautiful crystal blue water. Imagine watching the pelicans and herons fish for their dinner, collecting "treasures from the sea," pastel colored seashells, while the sandpipers scurry along the surfs edge.
Sanibel Island has everything one could wish for...excellent restaurants, accommodations, golfing, tennis, fishing, boating, shopping, bike paths, canoes, theatrical productions, the renowned J.N. "Ding Darling" National Wildlife Refuge & Bird Sanctuary. Since 1884 Point Ybel Lighthouse has guided seafarers to Sanibel Island's shores.
Sanibel Island is world renowned for its shelling beaches and the "Sanibel Stoop". In the travel industry Sanibel Island is a top Florida destination for visitors. If you want a truly unforgettable family vacation, holiday, wedding, honeymoon, anniversary or get-away, this is the place to be. Visit Sanibel Island and do it all… or just lay back on the beach with the book you’ve been wanting to read or… just do absolutely nothing. All this is just a short ride from Fort Myers International Airport, Florida."
In 2013 my wife and I took a vacation and stayed on this island for a week.
We were rented a condo located on the channel and here you can see photos of the great room.
Here is now a kitchen looks like and it's me ... fishing.
Here are shoreline condos built by idiots who saved a couple of bucks on the walls shielding A/C units and as a result you can see them all exposed... Very nice view for some simpleminded knuckleheads!
