The Island Inn on Sanibel continued its large scale refurbishment program, and donated its previous furniture and fixtures to Habitat for Humanity of Lee and Hendry counties, to benefit the local community.

A total of 22 guest rooms and suites are being renovated and completely redecorated during this phase of the Island Inn renovation project. The inn chose Habitat for Humanity as its charity because they could best distribute the large donation to families and individuals in need, as part of its ReStore program.

The contents of the 22 rooms were packed, loaded, and donated to Habitat for Humanity on Tuesday, Sept. 3. The donation included appliances, furniture, countertops, beds, and furnishings.

“Anytime the inn can donate its man power and resources to benefit a large number of families, particularly local families here in Southwest Florida, we are going to make the extra effort to contribute,” said Chris Davison, general manager at the Island Inn. “Habitat for Humanity is such a great local organization and we are thrilled to donate the contents of our newly renovated guest rooms to this charity.”

Habitat for Humanity of Lee and Hendry counties is a non-profit organization helping families and individuals in need in Southwest Florida.

Built in 1895, the Island Inn is the most established Inn on Sanibel and Captiva. Facing the Gulf of Mexico, it has been updated to accommodate a relaxing stay in a charming, historical atmosphere with modern comforts and amenities.

All 49 rooms and cottages are equipped with Wi-Fi, flat screen TV’s, DVD players, updated bathrooms, many units have a full kitchen, and all come standard with a refrigerator, coffee maker, and microwave. The spacious rooms and cottages feature large screened porches with views of the Gulf.
