Sanibel Arms West #E2

Direct Beach-Front Easy-Access 2 Bedroom With Income


827 East Gulf Drive, Sanibel Arms West #E2

Built in 1974, Sanibel Arms West has evolved as one of the east-end’s most popular mini-resorts.

With 104 units spread over 13 buildings, just four buildings, including this one, are directly on the community’s 475′ of Gulf of Mexico beach.

The roomy floor plans feature two screened lanais (one beachside & the 2nd off the master suite).

This arrangement creates wonderful cross ventilation during temperate fall, winter, & spring months.

The Sanibel Arms West rental office is canal-side across the street from the gulf-side condominiums & next to the community tennis & pickle ball courts.

Other community amenities include the island’s only screened & heated pool, clubhouse with roof-top sundeck, fitness room, business center, BBQ grills, laundry, wireless internet, canal-side dock, & bike/movie rentals.

The parking areas are pavers with plenty of room for owners, vacationers, & their guests.

Rentals couldn’t be easier. The low rental fee (just 10.5%) & 3-day minimum ensure that income is high, with this unit grossing ~70K/year with owner use too.

#E2 is a 1st-level recently updated unit.
