Thank you for reading our first blog. Mia's Beach Escape is a newly listed vacation rental property on Sanibel Island. We purchased this lovely home so we can retire here one day. In the meantime, we visit Sanibel and enjoy the house as much as we can and when we cannot be there, we rent it out so others can also enjoy our little beach paradise.
The first time we visited Sanibel, we fell in love with the Island. We love the low key and laid back feel. As soon as you cross the causeway, you leave behind the hustle and bustle of city life. You truly feel like you've entered a tropical paradise with palm-lined trees and beaches, glorious sunrises and sunsets, and no high rise buildings!
Two thirds of the island is a protected nature preserve. There are no streetlights. Busy intersections are directed by traffic police. The island has over 20 miles of paved bike trails. You will quickly notice that there aren't any chain restaurants on Sanibel. These are some of the things that make Sanibel Island unique.
Because we use Mia's Beach Escape whenever we can get down to the island and hope to retire here in a number of years, we have invested in significant improvements since purchasing the house in spring of 2020. When we first saw the house, we fell in love with the bones: open floor plan, vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors. As soon as we took possession, we started making immediate updates and renovations. We replaced all of the televisions and carpeting. We put a King bed in the master bedroom. We renovated both bathrooms, replaced the roof, painted the house, and put in new landscaping. We updated the decor, put in new window coverings, ceiling fans and purchased new linens. The laundry room is now equipped with a brand new washer and dryer. Since we love to cook and entertain, ensuring that the kitchen was well stocked with high quality supplies was critical. Everything you need to prepare your favorite meal, cocktail or coffee break is available. We also purchased a new gas grill. Because we still work our day jobs on our visits to Sanibel Island, we set up the house with fast Wifi, desk and color printer.
The house comes with four bikes with locks. We also purchased a new beach buggy, chairs, umbrella and other equipment. We have tried to think of every detail to make your stay as enjoyable and stress-free as possible. All you need to worry about is packing your swimsuit and sunscreen!
