Sanibel is a naturally beautiful island that is known for it's preservation of wildlife and habitat. Protected from over development, it is unique among other vacation destinations in Florida. No high rises here. The J.N 'Ding' Darling Wildlife refuge takes up nearly fifty percent of the island. Drive, walk, bike, canoe or kayak through the refuge to see the hundreds of resident and migrating species of birds. There are 50 species of fish, 230 species of birds and 250 kinds of shells found in and around Sanibel's waters.
Experience the wildlife side of Sanibel by stopping at CROW, our state of the art wildlife hospital, for an education about the wildlife found on the islands and the injuries that often occur from our human activities, as well as how to avoid being part of the problem yourself.
The Sanibel Captiva Conservation Foundation can give you an understanding of Sanibel's flora as well as their involvement in the Sea Turtle nesting program. They own the home of one of the island's founding families and offer scheduled tours.
There are many boutiques scattered around the island for the shopper in your group and more excellent restaurants than you can possibly experience in one trip.
Enjoy a drive to Captiva and discover its unique character, great sunsets and dolphin-watching cruises. Stop in for a drink at the gulf front restaurant, 'The Mucky Duck' or for a scrumptious Katie cake at the famous 'Bubble Room'.
Off-island, in Fort Myers, you will find the very educational Edison/Ford Winter Estates. Enter another time and see where these two great entrepreneurs developed a friendship and got some of their inspiration. Harvey Firestone was next door too. I am not a museum person, but this place is fascinating! If nothing else, you can enjoy the estate gardens and the river front view.
Baseball spring-training is a big draw to the Ft Myers area. The Minnesota Twins and Boston Red Sox train here annually. Theater, concerts, museums, and a surprisingly active downtown round out the Ft. Myers experience. But once you are on Sanibel Island, you probably won't want to leave!
The Key West Ferry is 12.5 miles away at Fort Myers Beach. Take a day trip to Key West or stay the night.
Golf: There are two top rated golf courses on the island, just minutes from the condo. Another is located just 15 minutes off island, and dozens more courses can be found around town.
About Paula Reiss
I grew up in Louisville, KY. My mother always called me 'nature girl'. From my youngest photos, I seemed to always have an animal nearby. I spent most of my life working with animals in one capacity or another, so when I visited a friend on Sanibel and discovered the natural beauty of the place, I was hooked.
Paula Reiss purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Paula Reiss chose Sanibel
In the mid 1980's, I took a job working at C.R.O.W (Care and Rehabilitation of Wildlife), the wildlife rehabilitation hospital on Sanibel. I got to know the island and it's unique, nature - friendly attitudes. I left that job after a couple of years but have continued to vacation on Sanibel regularly. I never found any place else that brought me the peace and tranquility of this island. It is a special place.
What makes this Condo unique
I searched for several years before finding just the right property. When I opened the front door and saw the phenomenal view, I knew my search was over. Although it is not technically beachfront, it's pretty darn close! This condo has everything I looked for on my vacations, washer/dryer, comfortable sized rooms, large screened lanai. Add to that the fact that nothing can ever be built in front of my unit, to spoil the view, I was sold. Although I am more of a beach person, it is nice to have a pool right outside the building and the complex is NOT next to a public beach, so it isn't crowded. The 4th floor location makes it safe to sleep with the doors open, listening to the surf. It is a truly great place to spend time.
