    We added our own high speed internet service and now have two independent services serving our unit so you can choose from either for the best signal at any given time.    
    Google Maps    
    Here is a map showing the unit's location. The pointer indicates the street entrance but the actual unit is at the beach.
Roads on sanibel are all tree-lined and although a Google sky view looks like you can see tons of built up developments, you actually can not. The island is 70% "tropical jungle" and even in the area of shops, riding a bike feels like you are quite secluded.
    Beach Location    
    One of the closest units to the Gulf on Sanibel and an unobstructed view (sky view)    
    Pool Location    
    Screened porch faces pool with closest unobstructed view possible (sky view)    
    Store Locations    
    Short bike ride (less than 2 miles) to supermarket, stores and restaurants    
    Full cable and internet provided    
AAAAAA fading   A rare direct beach front unit with wrap-around screened porch unit giving prefect views of the Gulf and pool! (photo)   AAAAAA fading
  Park so close you can walk to your car barefoot on a hot day
