Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

This 1900 SQ. FT. Sanibel Island vacation home has recently been remodeled and offers amenities not often seen in a vacation rental. This home includes a large heated pool with spa and lap swimming lane, a dock to moor a boat or just sit and enjoy fishing while watching dolphins and manatee frolic in the pristine waters. If you are a boater you can rent a boat from the local marina or bring your own because the dock is only ¼ mile from the bay and open water, and this bay offers some of the best fishing in Florida. Its large fenced in patio surrounded by fruit trees and well-manicured Florida fauna is a great place to relax and just enjoy the day with a cook out.

Sanibel Island is the perfect place to go for an island getaway, with its soft white sands, expansive beaches, swaying coconut palms, lush tropical foliage and beautiful crystal blue waters. Sanibel is a true island lifestyle, half the island has been set aside as a nature reserve, the largest is J. N. “Ding” Darling Wild life refuge, which welcomes visitors to view and enjoy over 200 species of birds and animals. The park has numerous bike trails and kayaking areas for you to explore.

Want to go the beach, restaurants, or unique island shopping? Sanibel has it all! You can walk, drive, or ride the bikes provided on miles of designated bike paths leading you to awesome island sunsets. Sanibel is fun for all ages and athletic abilities so, “Come on home to your Sanibel Island vacation”.

About Howard & Melinda Hirsch

Hi, we are a hard working couple that have looked for many years to find a great house in a beautiful location, our plans are to rent this home until we retire there.

Howard & Melinda Hirsch purchased this house in 2010

Why Howard & Melinda Hirsch chose Sanibel Isles

We love this area and in the future plan to retire there. Till then we will rent it and let others enjoy its amazing bounties.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy sitting on the dock fishing with the kids, riding the bikes into town or the beach and hanging out in the pool. We love spending our evenings on the massive couch watching videos or having drinks by the pool. You won't believe how quiet it is and the stars ' incredible' because there is no light pollution from the surrounding area.

Manatee Landing, a Beautiful Vacation Home on the Water

We had a great stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed Manatee Landing. It had everything we wanted. It's roomy, bright, and well set up. It has a dock and canal access with davits that we could use for our jet skis. We frequently saw manatees and dolphins in the canal, often right next to the dock. And best of all it's on Sanibel Island.

Good time had by all.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on Sanibel on Christmas Day, the decorations on the island were very pretty. Kevin met us at the house to inform us how to operate the pool and hot tub and show us where everything was. He was also gracious enough to be sure that we had food and drinks to get us by until we could get to the grocery store. We had everything we needed, and we enjoyed a wonderful vacation. Fishing poles, bicycles and pool toys were provided; we made use of all of them! We would recommend this house for anyone wishing to enjoy the island and its amenities or the solitude of the neighborhood where it is located.
