We're a block away from Lighthouse Point, the Fishing Pier, Sanibel Marina, Lighthouse Cafe & Old Town with its specialty shops, ice cream parlor & boutiques.
Sunday afternoons, bike to the farmer's market and fill your basket with fresh fruits and veggies. Buy some cheese, honey, fresh breads & pastries and have a picnic. Like fishing? If you are lucky enough to catch a grouper, grill it on the backyard BBQ.
In the evenings sip a glass of wine or fresh lemonade and enjoy one of the many films at the cottage (DVDs, Roku and Netflix available). There's time to read, play Scrabble, start a jigsaw puzzle or whatever you do for relaxation after a day of sunshine and fun. And the stars in the Sanibel sky are magical so don't forget to take a late walk under the moon. You'll not see anything like it!
