Did you know you can take a quick tour of some of our favorite neighborhoods? I've been putting together web pages and videos of Sanibel and Captiva for you to enjoy as you start your search of island properties. Our summer weather is almost here and it's a great time to enjoy all the sights and fun things to do on the islands. Besides searching for your island home, summer is great for birding, fishing, shelling and just enjoying miles and miles of our word famous beach!
By watching these videos you can get an idea of what each neighborhood has to offer. I also have a web page for each area in my website's "Near Beach" section. It's a great place to start to explore our islands! I also have pages dedicated to the Lighthouse, Wildlife Refuge and a video tour of Sanibel's eastern end. As well as the information in my website, I'd love for you to use my contact form, or call me at 239-691-4915, so I can put together information for you for your perfect island property!

This week I would like to point out some of the fun and useful things that you can do with my website! From interesting facts about Sanibel and Captiva Islands to informative videos of our neighborhoods and condos, this is a one-stop site for all your island questions.
Captiva is world famous for its beaches, sights and quaint style and I'd love to be able to show you around!
If you want to search for properties, my site has the most modern and useful search engine you will find. You can search with whatever criteria you wish, or by map (left), or subdivision or condo. It's easy to use and you can save your searches and email your results to friends and relatives.
I even have a page of important numbers you might need when you decide to move to the islands.
As you drive around the island checking out which areas or condos look good to you, you can use my mobile site as you travel around the island. You can search properties with your smart phone or tablet as well as learn about the area and what it has to offer.
If you want to check out Sanibel before you get to the island, I have a couple of videos I made of the east end of the island. It's a great place to start! Click Here! I'm also proud of a video I have of one of Sanibel Island's most popular sites - The J.N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge.
As for our local neighborhoods and condos, my condo page and neighborhood page have links to each area along with video tours of each area. This is a wonderful way to check out all the different areas of the island without leaving your home!
Each area has local information, an area map and virtual tour of the neighborhood or condo!
