This is a fantastic home. Wendy was wonderful to deal with throughout the process, very accommodating and helpful re recommendations for things to do, where to eat, etc. The beach is beautiful and wonderful for shelling. It was very private-most days we were the only people on the beach for a long way. The beach is a short walk and the beach cart makes it very convenient. The house is so nicely decorated and comfortable. It is an ideal layout for vacationing. There is plenty of room so everyone has their own space and privacy but the open layout makes the shared space cozy even though it is quite spacious. We loved the family room off the kitchen with the breakfast nook for hanging out and looking over our shells. The kitchen has everything you need to cook and has tons of storage. The furniture was very comfortable as were the beds. There were plenty of towels-bath and beach. We also enjoyed the lighthouse beach very much (different kinds of shells, lots of sand bars and a lovely view of Fort Myers). The photos and descriptoins don't quite do the house justice. It is even nicer than it looks! The property was spotless and the lanai with the gorgeous pool and landscaping is visible from most of the rooms, giving it a tropical feel. It is a quiet street and neighborhood. We have recommended this property to friends. We enjoyed dinner at Trader's (excellent food), the Sanibel Thriller boat ride and the Cabbage Key Captiva Cruise, and appetizers at George and Wendy's. Also the sunset at the Mucky Duck on Captiva and shell crafting at the Community House on Mondays. We preferred Bailey's for groceries (and their excellent coffee bar and bakery!!). It was a very relaxing time for us as a family and we plan to come back!!
