We absolutely loved this place!
We cannot say enough about this rental and the location. It was perfect for our family of five which consisted of our children ages, 23, 20 and 15. We came in on the 24th and stopped at the Publix grocery store before hitting the causeway to stock up on breakfast and lunch items.
The rental was right on the beach and provided all that we needed. Beach chairs were provided and the walk to the beach was only about two minutes if that. Get up earlier in the morning to look for shells and again about late afternoon. Make sure that you take bug spray or buy it there. The No See Ems will get you in the early morning hours and the late evening hours.
We did go to Jerry’s grocery store twice on Sanibel. Once to pick up a birthday cake for our 20 year old and Blanche did a wonderful job with the cake. The second time to get additional lunch and snack foods. Prices were not that out of the ordinary.
The area provided a gas grill of which we were able to grill twice during our trip. Hit RJ Otters for breakfast; try the Mexican food restaurant, Mucky Ducks and the Key Lime Bistro. The food on the island is really nothing special so don’t expect that much. All the restaurants had a nice atmosphere and the staff was good.
For things to do, contact Captain Paul’s Yacht Charters for a wonderful cruise, YOLO for Sup boards and other equipment, Island Photography for family photos and Captiva Kayak Co. & Wildside Adventures for an excellent kayak trip.
Finally, we would like to thank Ann for answering all our questions and making this such an enjoyable, relaxing trip. We will definitely be back next year.
