Gumbo Limbo is one of Sanibel's larger neighborhoods with 173 home sites . Owners enjoy the convenient location near shops, restaurants and easy off island access. Many of the homes are located on the lake's many coves.
Fun Fact: Native to Florida, the Gumbo Limbo tree is comically reffed to as the Tourist Tree because the trees bark is red and peeling like that of a newly sunburned tourist. Also known to be very wind resistant, the tree is found throughout the islands. Birds feed on the seed coat of the Gumbo Limbo for its high lipid content. The name Gumbo came from the tree's sap which has many uses including glue, varnish and incense.
