A full DUPLEX, walking distance to the beach, with heated pool, on a canal with boating access to the Gulf of Mexico – you have it all! This truly authentic Sanibel beach cottage is filled with island charm and history. Once a part of the Colony Resort, this is now the perfect vacation home or investment property for your family. Each side of the duplex has a private kitchen, 2-beds, 1-bath, living room, front and back porch, and a washer/dryer. The white wood-paneled walls, beamed ceilings and hardwood floors bear old Florida nostalgia and original character. Kick back on the porch and enjoy the mature trees and sea breeze, or lounge by the pool to soak in the sun. The beach is a 3-min walk away, and the Gulf is a short boat ride with one bridge to pass under. Located on the quiet East End of Sanibel, enjoy easy access to the Causeway bridge and bike rides to the Sanibel Lighthouse.
