The Real Sanibel Island
Being an island, Sanibel is widely known for its water connections – sunning or shelling on its glorious white sand beaches, boating or fishing on the gulf or in a canal. The water is everywhere and it influences much of what we do. But, most of the island real estate is not directly connected to water. Homes in these communities are called near beach homes and are just a short drive or bike ride to a beach. Some of them are on special lands, such as a golf course, but most are just tucked away in a natural garden of sub-tropical island beauty. They are a significant portion of the island real estate, located in quiet communities such as Gumbo Limbo, Cardinal Ridge, Gopher Walk and many others. You can nestle into a gracious home in one of these communities and experience that “at home” comfort and, yet, still be within a short hop to wherever you want to go – the beach, shopping, a restaurant as well as island theatres, museums and art galleries. This is Florida the way it was meant to be.

Sanibel Near Beach Real Estate
The opportunity to own island real estate in your own near beach neighborhood is very much in your favor. There are many near beach homes available for your review, probably more than any other part of the island. This is because most of the land on the island, or any island, is not on the shores but between the shores. This gives you a wide range of “must haves” to look for and all of them in beautiful, natural settings. They will include deeded beach access and some will also have their own pool and tennis courts. Most important, they will all have that island specialty – a simple and comfortable lifestyle balanced with an appreciation for the natural, unspoiled beauty of this island paradise. It is nicely expressed in our two nationally acclaimed sanctuaries – the conservation foundation and the wildlife refuge. They let you experience Florida the way it was and the way it’s supposed to be. David Schuldenfrei will help you find the right near beach neighborhood so you can unwind, loosen your grip and relax, the Shuldenfrei way.
