Anything besides VRBO and royal shell???

We're looking for a 4 bedroom on the beach, and I've exhausted both of these sites. Is there anywhere else I can check? There is almost no where else in the world I would rather be than on Sanibel Island!! :) Our dates are 6-25 to 7-2.

Thanks so much for the help.

Thanks so much! Just checked, nothing with 4 bedrooms. Guess I'll just have to kick someone out of my family. :)

You may want to check out home rentals on Captiva. Might have better luck with 4 bedrooms there.

Check with VIP also.

There is a 5 bedroom condo at Shorewood on Sanibel, I think it's listed thru VIP. Also a 4 bedroom at Signal Inn -

Do you all need to be in a single unit? You might have more flexibility, not to mention more privacy, renting two side-by-side condos (2+2 bedroom or 1+3 bedroom)

There are 3 bedrooms at Pointe Santo with a sleeper sofa in the living room that would sleep 8. Did you look there?

I used Kingfisher Vacations for the first time this year. Very personable and responsive to all of my inquiries / concerns. Appear to have a decent inventory of properties....

Sanibel is not the place to vacation for a single week in a house. By Sanibel City stautes, houses rent only for a minimum of 28 days, though condos are allowed weekly rentals.

Captiva is under Lee County rules, allowing weekly rentals. It may be a bit late to find a 3 or 4 bedroom home available on Captiva's beach, as few even exist. There are some available in the village center area.

Always try the Vacation Rentals link on the left side of the Forum page for the particular town. Captiva houses will not show on the Sanibel page.
