Welcome to the Banana Breeze where you can walk to Sanibels private West end beaches, or enjoy the serene lake views from the comfort of the elevated lanai.
Located in a quiet cul-de-sac in Sanibel's beautiful west end, this lovely home offers an open floor plan, a master suite, two guest rooms, garage and a private heated (solar) pool.
New property owners are very hands on and cater to the needs of their guests.

To make your stay easier, beach towels, a washer and dryer, a clothes steamer, hair blow dryers, a gas grill, and a fully equipped kitchen with ample storage are all available.
To make your stay more comfortable, are the comfy beds and sofas, and the extra bed pillows and blankets.
To make your stay more pleasing, are the pretty soft coastal colors that the home is decorated with, and the stunning lake views off the veranda.
Master suite has king size bed, dual sinks, a walk in closet and an amazing view of the lake.
Guest rooms have, a queen bed, a set of new twin beds, and share a full bath.
Nearly every room in the house has a view of the lake and the pristine nature preserve beyond.
Begin your morning cup of coffee while taking in the spectacular lake views and observing wondrous wildlife, sometimes including but not limited to: Egrets, Bald Eagles, a variety of fish and an occasional gator swimming by.
No gator worries here, as you will be enjoying the view from the elevated and spacious screened lanai which is just off the main living area of the home.
The large elevated deck area, the pool and the pool deck are all encased by screening giving an additional advantage of being provided a nearly bug free outdoor area while enjoying those cool and calming lake breezes.
As evening approaches there seems to be a general decreased desire to have dinner out for fear of missing the 'magic hour' when the lighting is spectacular, calming and serene.
Beautiful sunsets provide the perfect setting for those appetizers and that good glass of wine.
Kids are always welcomed and wanted! We have toys, books, games, puzzles and cuddly stuffed animals for the borrowing.
Though West Florida is always a popular winter vacation spot, you won't find neon signs, rowdy partiers, and high-rises lining the water in Sanibel.
Instead, this peaceful, family-friendly island boasts more than 17 miles of sugar-fine beaches, 26 miles of bike trails, and a main drag filled with chic shops and restaurants.
Kids fascinated with sea shells will find plenty to collect, [there are over
200 species of shells], along these shores.
The island's east-west orientation acts as a scoop for the tide's treasures and they are readily available for the collecting.
Also ride, walk, bike, canoe, or kayak through the J. N. ('Ding') Darling National Wildlife Refuge, one of Florida's best refuges with international appeal.
One can fish with a license from the beach, or enjoy a captained boat charter that takes the family out for a day of fun and provides licenses and fish cleaning for you.
No matter where the island finds you, may you feel totally relaxed and yearning to return to paradise.
Banana Breeze can accommodate up to six people. Please contact us for pet inquiries.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Banana Breeze. The accommodations were exceptionally clean and provided everything we could need. We were able to walk to the beach and enjoy shelling, then we could relax by the pool. We enjoyed being close to restaurants and the beach but still having the privacy of a home. We would certainly recommend Banana Breeze to anyone-is perfect for a couple but could easily accommodate a family. Fun vacation for all!
Our stay at the Banana Breeze was such a pleasant one! All the comforts of home, nestled in a piece of paradise. From natures wild life in the backyard, to the beach just down the street. Shelling is just amazing, truly an endless variety! We’ve enjoyed bird watching, caught a glance of an alligator, even just sitting on the lanai watching the sunrise, it’s stunning! To be able to have a private poll, added to the personal touch of our stay. Also, having bicycles at the house, made it easy to enjoy a ride to the beach and the wildlife refuge. Banana Breeze is home away from home, and much, much more!
For the 25th year in succession a visit to Sanibel and after a long trip from The Netherlands, we experienced a great stay at the Banana Breeze. I think that we were the first renters as many household items were brandnew! Kitchen is a dream for the kitchen queen, great living room and the balcony is huge with a very impressive view over the Sanibel River. The pool could be a more updated and does not really invite to sit around. We had alligators in the grass, right in front of us and so many birds! Master bedroom en bath are very good, the guest bedroom has a smaller bed, even for our "European" standard. The den has a sleeping sofa. We would love to come back and, almost forgot to mention, Royal Shell has done a wonderful job. Everything was extremely clean and taken care of and we had a great service!
