Sanibel Island's Baileyfest has become an Island tradition.  Each year, Sam and Francis Bailey - owners of Bailey's General Store, host a traditional Fall Festival complete with hayrides, games and live music - oh, and of course - food.  In recent years it has really come into it's own with all the merchants of the Bailey's Center, where it takes place, joining in the fun. 

As an added bonus this year, there is a raffle with prizes worth over $1700!  It is quite something when the local businesses donate so much for a community party.  Sanibel Island is and continues to be a unique place and Baileyfest demonstrates that it isn't just about the Sanibel Beaches and shells. 

More than 40 different door prizes - valued at more than $1,700 - will be awarded at the 24th annual Baileyfest.  This is a Sanibel Island event not to be missed.

Baileyfest 2009 will be held on Sunday, Oct. 25 from 1 to 4 p.m. at Bailey's Center, located on the corner of Periwinkle Way and Tarpon Bay Road. 

All 14 merchants in the Bailey's Center Merchants' Association (BCMA) have donated prizes:

Bailey's General Store $100 gift card

Bailey's True Value Hardware $100 gift card

Biddles Bucket Four $25 gift certificates

The Grog Shop $100 case of wine

Nick's Frozen Yogurt $100 gift basket

Hillgate Communications $100 spa gift basket

Island Cleaners $100 gift package

Island Cinema 10 $10 gift certificates for concessions

Lily & Co. $495 jewelry set

Sanibel Barber Shop Four $25 gift certificates

Sanibel Beauty Salon $100 beauty gift basket

Sanibel Shell Automotive Four $25 gift certificates for parts or labor

Select Vacation Properties $100 BBQ gift basket

The Video Scene 12 double movie rental packages

Maybe it's time for you to check out Sanibel Island Real Estate and make it easier for you to enjoy Baileyfest year after year!

Hi -

Ever wonder what Sanibel Island was like after hearing so much about it?

Well, I have talked to so many folks who have never been here and wondered "What is it like there?"  that I decided to try to answer their questions in video as well as words. 

On my website - www.sanibelislandsensations.com you can now click on the link on the homepage to the first of my Island videos.  I started on the East end of Sanibel Island. The two videos bring you across the Causeway and show you the Sanibel Marina, the Sanibel Island Fishing Pier, the Sanibel Island Lighthouse and, of course, some of the great Real Estate on that end of the island.  I take you around and show you Sanibel Island Canal Homes and Gulf Front Condo complexes as well as "the island within the island" - Kinzie Island on Sanibel Island.  Take a look at these two fun videos and let me know what you think.  Over the next couple of months I will be adding to the video collection so you will get a sense of Sanibel Island and then it's on to Captiva Island.

Hi,

I have just listed a great one bedroom - one bath in the Sundial Resort on Sanibel Island.  The unit has been meticulously maintained with updated furnishings and appliances. This unit participates in the Sundial Resort Rental program and grossed over $40,000 in 2008.  Enjoy the beach, the pools, the tennis and the golf at this tropical escape.  Listed for $389,000 it is one of the true resort units that can be run as a business.
Sanibel Island Real Estate at its best!

Wow - it has been a while since my last Blog entry - I have been really busy settling into Royal Shell Preferred Properties.  Moving is a good deal of work when you want to ensure that your clients don't miss a beat when it comes to Sanibel Island real estate and Captiva Island real estate! Click Here to read more about my exciting new company.

On Thursday I was taking a little break and went on this fantastic bike ride through Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge.  It was the first day of October and a cool front had passed through the day before so it was dry and glorious here on Sanibel Island. 

The birds seemed to think life was pretty good on Sanibel as well.  There were a dozen Roseate Spoonbills, about 40 Great White Herons, and too-many-to-count Snowy Egrets.  The best part was that they were in the trees, wading in the water and flying all around - it looked like they were having a party! 

Sanibel Island is a truly special place.  To really enjoy it, you need to take the time to see it and experience it.  I feel so fortunate that I live in such a wonderful place.
