Imagine looking directly over the Gulf of Mexico from your living room or bedroom, sitting on your lanai at night watching the lights of the shrimp boats bobbing in the Gulf or just walking out your back door directly onto the beach. That would be the ultimate in luxury living and that is what you would have with a Sanibel gulf front home. Because the amount of Gulf frontage is limited by the size of the island the number of gulf front homes is also limited. Most of the Gulf front homes are off West Gulf Drive past the West Wind Inn. Gulf front homes can also be found in neighborhood subdivisions off the Sanibel-Captiva road such as Gulf Ridge, Gulf Pines, Chateaux Sur Mer, Seaspray and Tradewinds.
