Holiday Rental House
Bowman's Beach House is an architecturally significant holiday home designed by the world renowned architectural firm Duany Plater-Zyberk. The community of Seaside, on Florida's panhandle, is one of DPZ's most aclaimed projects. The house is elevated twelve feet above grade! Its most dominant feature is a two storey high wraparound screen porch to temper the summer sun. It also features a dramatic Great Room with fireplace, a towering exposed wood cathedral ceiling and, to guarantee a cooling breeze, six pairs of French doors opening onto the porch on three sides There are three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms and a sitting room that overlooks the Great Room, like a choir loft! Please note: 28 day minimum rentals....Bowman's Beach House is an architecturally significant holiday home designed by the world renowned architectural firm Duany Plater-Zyberk.

About the neighbourhood
We are a scenic 45 minute drive from Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) in Fort Myers. Our neighbourhood, Sanibel Bayous, is at the west end of Sanibel Island, one mile from the bridge to Captiva Island. Ours is the closest house to the world famous Bowman's Beach - incredible shelling, sunsets and wildlife. To the west there is no development at all - just sand, surf and sky!
