Gulf Pines is a neighborhood of 114 homes tucked away at the end of a quiet sandy lane. Gulf Pines was developed in 1972 – before the City of Sanibel incorporated. Careful planning of the Gulf Pines neighborhood preserved the authentic beauty of Sanibel better than most other subdivisions. All homes in Gulf Pines are either directly on the gulf or a short walk from the beach down a beautiful path.

When you turn off Sanibel-Capiva Road and drive towards the Gulf front community you pass through Sanibel’s interior wetlands. I feel I’m entering a pristine place, it’s what I imagine Sanibel looked long ago. The week I wrote this, a pair of Bald Eagles were nesting just off the drive. Photographers from Michigan were there and had sought out this location for the great photo opportunity it provides.

The homes in Gulf Pines are embraced by native shrubs, trees and ground covers, often tucked partially out of sight. Homes blend into the vegetation and feel private. Gulf Pines is not your neighborhood if you like manicured yards and lots of grass, but it is for those wanting to live amongst nature.
