Miles and Miles of Fun!

You can add over 20 miles of mixed use biking/walking trails to the list of things Sanibel Island has to offer. No matter where you are staying on the island, it's a pretty good bet that one of our bike paths passes nearby.

You can take a bike ride to the Sanibel Lighthouse, or maybe to one of the many public beach access locations. Most restaurants and shops also have areas to safely leave your bike.

For an interactive map you can Click Here and check out more information about our bike path routes.

Not only can you walk or bike on the paths, you can sign up for a Segway lesson and tour! Through Billy's Bikes on Periwinkle Way, you can learn how to ride a Segway and tour the island, or rent one of their many different bike choices. Billys is just one of many places that offer bikes for rent.

We also have a Sanibel Island Bike Club for all levels of bikers. They plan different rides and events around the island as well as teaching safe biking and the rules of the road. The map at the top of this blog is from the Bike Club and you can find it online as a downloadable PDF Here or by just clicking on the map.

From Periwinkle Way all the way to Blind Pass Beach on Captiva Island, this is one of the best ways to get to know our island paradise!

With 60% of Sanibel being wildlife preserve, you can bike or walk on secluded paths while bird watching or just enjoying our abundance of wildlife. The world famous J.N. Ding Darling Wildlife Preserve is a great place to spend the day as you explore miles of trails through our island wetlands. This summer Wildlife Drive in the Ding Darling Preserve will be closed for repaving and bridge repair, so contact me and I can give you the closure dates and an update on how long it will take to re-open.

Come and enjoy everything our islands have to offer! From our historic sites to miles and miles of great shelling on our beaches, there are many reasons to consider Sanibel Island real estate!

Our "season" is winding down and this is a great time to visit Sanibel and Captiva Islands! The crowds are thinning out and we have some terrific properties on the market. Whether you are interested in a home, condo or homesite, I want to help you find the perfect property!

Give me a call at 239-691-4915 or use my Contact Form and we can start the search for your home in paradise! As a long-time island resident, I know every area of the island and I'm sure we can get your dreams fulfilled!

SarahAshton.com - The Best Place To Start!

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.

The Captiva video on the  right is a great way to check out Captiva Island and what it has to offer. I also have a Captiva webpage, a "Downtown" Captiva webpage along with links to our restaurants and marinas! I also have a video of my Gulf front Captiva listing for you to enjoy.

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!

If you are looking for something to do this weekend - don't fret - there is more than a mere mortal can take in!

Friday kicks off a long standing tradition on the islands - Luminary.  On Friday, Sanibel Island businesses will be keeping their doors open and the food and beverages flowing as Periwinkle Way is lit up with hundreds of white luminary candle bags.  It is a sight to behold.  The San-Cap Chamber of Commerce does an outstanding job working with the businesses and running a trolley service to get folks from one plaza to another. 

Friday will also host a fund-raiser on Captiva Island to support the month-long Captiva Holiday Village celebration and events.  Many great silent auction items will be there for the bidding.  Check out www.captivaholidayvillage.com for more info.

Satuday is Captiva Island's luminary night.  at 3:30 the festivities are kicking off with a Golf Cart Parade.  Don DeLuca of the Royal Shell Companies is the Grand Marshall of the parade.  It will be a good time and again - the streets will be lined with white luminary candle bags.  It is a pretty sight.

Have a great weekend!

This is one of my favorite weekends on Sanibel Island and Captiva Island.

With the holidays just down the road, Sanibel Island and Captiva Island kick it off right with a two night Luminary festival.  Tonight is Sanibel's turn with the entire length of Periwinkle Way lined with luminaria.  It is breath-taking!  All the shops on Sanibel will be open with refreshments and deals - many are offering Luminary night specials.  It is fun for me because it really gets you into the holiday spirit - the decorations are great.

Tomorrow night is Captiva Island's night.  While smaller, it is more intimate and just as lovely.  The shops will be open as well and the refreshments flowing. The tree at Tween Waters is on and greeting all who come!  If you have the chance, maybe not this year, the first weekend in December is our luminary festival and it really shouldn't be missed!
