The Gumbo Limbo Community of Sanibel Island
The community of Gumbo Limbo is as delicious and tropical as its name seems to suggest. Recognized as one of the larger neighborhoods of Sanibel, Gumbo Limbo is comprised by a little more than 170 home sites. Many Gumbo Limbo homes are aligned along lakes and green preserves of the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge. Gumbo Limbo is located along Dixie Beach Blvd, just off Periwinkle Way, Sanibel Island’s primary roadway.
Now just imagine waking-up in one of the world’s most sought-after vacation destinations each day. Only a short stroll to white sandy beaches and blue waters, you’ll indulge in the privilege of identifying Sanibel Island as home, or as your seasonal home. The Wall Street Journal recognizes Sanibel as America’s “Best” place to have a second home, and Gumbo Limbo will position you in the very heart of the Island.
Gumbo Limbo also allows convenient access to nearby shops and supermarkets like Jerry’s Foods (try their Grouper sandwich or the keylime pie, yum!). Leave your car in the garage and enjoy a bike ride to other areas of Sanibel. The miles of paved paths make it especially easy to stop-by local book stores, coffee shops or destinations like Sanibel’s light house. You’ll also be appreciably close to area beaches. Enjoy fishing, or shell collecting among the shores that are world-famous among shell hunters. What’s more, Gumbo Limbo is located adjacent to one of the world’s most amazing of nature preserves, a habitat that plays host to an incredible array of avian species and annually attracts ornithological enthusiasts from all corners of the planet. That preserve lies just beyond the back yards of homes within Gumbo Limbo. For all the beauty of the homes and community, Gumbo Limbo is enriched by the benefits which come from being only a minutes away from so many of the places that most islanders like to go.
