B-2 Breakers West, 2BR/2BA Condo, Olde-Fla Charm

Overview
Condo/Apartment -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 5
Sanibel Island, Florida
Relax in the ambiance of Olde Florida in our comfortable, 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom, 2nd-floor Sanibel condo, located on the Gulf side of quiet West Gulf Drive, just over 100 yards from the Gulf of Mexico. Enjoy morning coffee on the screened-in lanai, overlooking lush landscaping and our private swimming pool. Toast Sanibel's glorious sunsets on our shell-filled Gulf beach. Experience the charm that is Breakers West: a family-friendly, 18-unit complex of mirror-image condos, close to shopping, dining and island adventures, yet quiet and peaceful, a world away from noise and crowds.

We're constantly working to 'feather the nest' with projects large and small, with frequent additions to the 'little niceties' like board games and puzzles, videos, beach chairs and umbrellas. In 2018, we upgraded to high-definition...

Interaction with guests
Welcome to our 'nest'! While we cannot greet you in person (we'd have no place to stay!), we have everything ready-and-waiting for you at the condo. The keys will be in the lock-box. We'll send you detailed directions to get there, and a list of our 'favorite' places to see and dine. You can reach us at any time, day or night, by phone, text and/or email. We have a network of resources/service people on-call if/as needed. Inside B-2, you'll find a fully equipped kitchen, linens and towels, beach chairs and umbrella, 2 TVs, games and puzzles, and more. We've created a guidebook of helpful information (dining, sightseeing, bike routes, wildlife info, TV channels, etc). We'll gladly offer ideas, and/or you plan for a special occasion.

The location was great and the owners were very accommodating. The fishing was bad due to the red tide, however the beaches were clean and no stench from the dead dish.More

B2 Breakers West was a great place for our vacation. It’s just a short walk to the beach. It’s also centrally located, so that it was easy to get around Sanibel. The condo was well stocked, including the things that you will need but might...More

About the neighbourhood
Breakers West is located mid-island, 4.9 miles west from the Sanibel Causeway exit; on the Gulf side of West Gulf Drive, a quiet residential street, between Tarpon Bay Rd and Rabbit Rd (and yes, they do have bunnies!). It's a short walk (just over 100 yards) from our condo to our shell-sand beach on the Gulf of Mexico; its western orientation is sunset-perfect.

Sanibel's restaurants, shops and attractions are easy to reach by car or bike, but a bit too far away to walk to (the 'price' of peace-and-quiet). 'Ding' Darling National Wildlife Refuge is just on the other end of Rabbit Rd. Most places offer free parking; and most have bicycle-racks. One Sanibel's scenic bike-hike paths runs across the street past our building.
Getting around
Sanibel has no bus or trolley service; to get around, one must walk, drive, bike or taxi. (One of the best ways to see Sanibel is by bicycle, on 25 miles of bike-hike paths.) Breakers West is on West Gulf Drive. The Gulf Drives (East, Middle, West) run parallel to and south of the main road, Periwinkle Way. Most restaurants and shops are on Periwinkle.

Tarpon Bay Rd is the quickest route to Periwinkle and 'all things East.' The Gulf Drives are a winding, quieter, more scenic alternative.

'Ding' Darling NWR, the Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum, and CROW Wildlife Rehab are all on San-Cap Rd, the western extension of Periwinkle, and just north of Breakers West. Sanibel's historic lighthouse is the other way, at the eastern tip of Sanibel.
