Sanibel Vacation Rentals

Sanibel is a cornucopia of vacation pleasures that has been recognized as a destination that is unique and special by travel experts such as USA Today, Frommers, Coastal Living, Conde Nast and many others. They have praised its elegant simplicity, great amenities and friendly atmosphere, all for good reason. It has world famous beaches of gorgeous white sand with lots of beautiful shells. There are wonderful shops and restaurants as well as interesting art galleries, museums and theatres. For the outdoor people the golf courses, tennis courts, biking and boating are exceptional and the fishing is challenging. It has everything you’ll need for that special vacation but it all starts with finding the rental property that’s just right for you. That is where the Gopher reigns. The Gopher has been helping vacationers find that perfect rental property for longer than most anyone else. They are the first island company to provide the service that lets you sit back and relax while they do the work. The island offers a wide range of rental properties for vacationers – houses, villas, or condominiums – large enough to handle a family gathering or small enough for that intimate get-away. It can be on the beach, a golf course or in one of the quiet, friendly neighborhoods. The Gopher has more than a nodding acquaintance with these properties since they have worked with island rental properties for 40 years. Your special vacation starts with finding the right rental property and that’s where the skill and caring attention of the Gopher makes a difference. You tell the Gopher what you need and when you need it and the Gopher gets to work! Experience counts and that’s what the Gopher brings to you. After you have found the best rental property you can then enjoy the pleasures of this vacation wonderland. There is much you can do – both on the island and off-island.

On-Island fun – In addition to the beaches, boating, restaurants and shops there is the Sanibel Museum and Village, The Shell Museum, The Sanibel Lighthouse, BigArts, The Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge, The Conservation Foundation and other interesting attractions that make up the fascinating Sanibel Experience.

Off-Island fun – Within a half hour of the island are day trip attractions such as The Edison and Ford Estates, The Calusa Heritage Trail and the Koreshan State Historic Site. All very interesting and visitor friendly.
