Located along the shores of the Gulf of Mexico in Southwestern Florida, Sanibel and Captiva Islands offer pristine beaches, remote nature, and a laid-back lifestyle making it the perfect place to be while learning and working remotely. While many of us are working from home and kids are learning virtually, it's the perfect time to enjoy some extended relaxation time on the beach. Learning and working remotely can be taken anywhere with a solid internet connection.
Whether you're looking for an inspirational place to get work done or a destination for the kids to experience hands-on learning, Sanibel Island is a great option. Our Sanibel vacation homes offer plenty of space so that everyone can have privacy and quiet during the day.
Resources for Hands On Learning
If the kids are going to school remotely right now, it's a great opportunity to take the learning outdoors. Sanibel and Captiva are both home to beautiful nature preserves and local museums documenting the area's history and culture. Learn about the flora and fauna of coastal Florida, aquatic animals, native wildlife, migratory birds, and so much more. A few of our favorite spots to visit include the J.N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge, the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Center, and the Sanibel Historical Musem and Village, among many others!

It can be easy to get caught up in the day to day stressors of life, especially these days. While you might want to spend all your time outside here, you can also work while outdoors! Just being on Sanibel will make you feel more relaxed and at ease. Enjoy waking up to the sound of the crashing waves or taking an afternoon break to walk down the beach and collect shells. With fewer distractions, you may find yourself more productive and creative.
Ample Space for Remote Work
We have a variety of accommodations to suit families of all sizes. If the whole group is working and learning remotely, choose a rental that has a room for each person or private space where kids and adults can get their work done. Many of our vacation rentals in Sanibel also have large common areas where everyone can get together in the evenings or use the space to collaborate and work with one another. From a 5 bedroom house that sleeps 10 guests to a 1 bedroom condo unit for smaller groups, VIP vacation rentals has something to suit your needs.
If you look forward to working outdoors, choose a home with a screened-in lanai or pool deck so you can enjoy the fresh Florida air while you get work done.
Strong WiFi Connection
We know how important it is to have a strong internet connection, which is why all of our vacation rentals come with free WiFi service. All you need to do is bring along your laptop, charger, and any other electronics you need to work and learn!
Keep in mind Sanibel is a small island, and while uncommon, service interruptions may happen on occasion. Bring along a hotspot or make sure you have one on your phone if a strong connection is imperative for your day. Plus, this means you can work from the pool or beach!
