Sanibel Island House Rental Photos and Description

Secluded Beach: Our property is 7-8 minutes walk from the most beautiful and somewhat secluded beach. That particular stretch of coast has large private homes and only a couple of small resort / cottage rentals, making it less populated. In season you will witness Sea Turtles digging nests and this will be marked with yellow bands, so as not to disturb the nests under the sand.

The shelling is fantastic on this stretch of beach.

We are the Aults - Aric, Pia, Aidan and Hunter, plus Aric's dad Tom. Aric is originally from Chicago and Pia is from Copenhagen Denmark. Our boys are attending Arizona State University and we live in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Sundance is our home, but while we reside overseas we rent it out to responsible likeminded people who will help us care for it like it was their own.

P Ault purchased this house in 2006

Aric's family has been coming to Sanibel for years. We bought this home because of its simple yet warm and quiet calm. It is our paradise and we don't get to come home often enough, but when we do, it's hard to leave! The island is such a stress buster and offers a close scenic view into the magnificent wild life.

The views as you sit in the living room, dining room or outside are phenomenal. A glass surface like lake with birds, turtles and an occasional curious alligator. You just cannot beat the serene surroundings.

great location

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in this home was exceptional. The house is within walking distance to the beach. We have been to Sanibel about 10 times and this was the best yet.The propert was well maintained,clean and very spacious. The house is updated and clean. The surrounding area is very quiet and residential. It was easy access to Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge.

Nice location but a couple of issues

  • 3 of 5
To keep this simple and easy to read please see below the pro's and con's:

Pro's:
- Great location - 7 minute walk to the beach
- Lots of beach toys/towels + umbrella
- Great pool outback
- Owners were responsive over email.
- They had a cot for our baby so we didn’t need to rent one.

Con's
- We found 5-6 cockroaches in the house (one still alive) when we communicated to the owner they said that this happens on Sanibel - they do have folks that spray the property. My issues was that we have a baby crawling on the floor and we’ve stayed in Sanibel properties for over 20 years and this is the first time we've encountered cockroaches - I think it's to do with the house not being raised.
- The neighbor (who looks after the property) decided to do all the gardening (around the pool) over 2-3 days when we were trying to relax by the pool. Also he kept on popping up every now and then – not for us, we wanted to be left alone.
- Shower curtain was moldy
- Bath/shower diverter didn't work so you couldn’t have a bath - tough when you have babies and small kids
- Toilet started leaking.
- The property isn’t professionally managed so you have to deal with the neighbor.

Summary:
In summary we wouldn’t stay here again, we’ve stayed in a lot better properties around Sanibel and feel that this property needs some cosmetic updating. I hate to write this review with a negative tone but if we’d of known what we know now, we’d of stayed somewhere else.

Owner's Response: We are very disappointed to receive this review, especially after we bent over backwards for this guest. This home is our own personal home while we are on assignment overseas and it is furnished with everything you could want for, including high quality furniture and appliance to our own taste - not as a vacation home rental. We have rented this house for 7 years straight, to over 50 families who have stayed 1-2 months average - without a single negative comment, so to have this guest write a review like this just illustrates that you cannot make him happy no matter what you do. We responded to all his requests and inquiries immediately. If he wanted a high end luxury place he should have rented a hotel room.

To address the cosmetic issues - the house is in a tropical and humid warm climate - hence some mold will appear on shower curtains. But we will replace it again. We do this often.

To address the cockroaches issues - again this is Florida and Sanibel. Unless you spray with pesticide inside you will find a few bugs, dead and alive - it's unavoidable. If we spray inside we risk health issues to babies and animals, so have made a conscious decision to only treat the perimeter of the house outside. None of our guests besides this gentleman has ever reported an issue, whether this means they haven't seen any bugs or they didn't mind / accepted that this is the Sanibel situation I don't know. It has absolutely nothing to do with the house being ground level or raised!

The neighbor is a very good and trusted caretaker and he is also on-hand for any maintenance that is needed and for security purposes. He tried to accommodate these guests when there was an issue. The toilet has been fixed and everything is in order.

The bath issue was never reported to us by the guest, so I cannot comment on this (Bath/shower diverter didn't work so you couldn’t have a bath) - obviously we will have this checked and if need be, fixed.

As always with reviews, they are very subjective and I do wish this guest would have reached out to us before he wrote this review because we feel some of it is unfairly reported. That said, I don't think you can satisfy this guest regardless.

Perfect Private Island Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed this lovely home in a quiet neighborhood.The private views from the enclosed patio & well maintained pool area were fantastic.The island birds were beautiful & the landscaping provided privacy but an enjoyable view. The home is well kept & the description is %100 accurate.The beach is very close & all beach necessities were provided. Bike trails were nearby & the shelling was great. Enjoyed the local restaurants within short driving distance. We have stayed in condos on the island before & would never do that again. We loved this quiet part of the island. The owner was great to work with & also the nearby propery manager for any concerns or questions. It was a great two vacation. Highly recommend it for all seasons.

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
A great vacation home with top-notch furnishings and equipped with all the extras to ensure a warm and welcoming environment. Our family has stayed in over 6 different rental homes over the years and this is by far the best rental home experience.

Why stay in a cramped hotel room or condo when you can stretch out in luxury and enjoy all that beautiful Sanibel Island has to offer? This home is close to everything (beach, shops, nature parks, bike trails, Captiva, etc.) Sanibel Island is a wonderful place to bring your family and this home accentuates the positive experience. We can't wait to return again one day.

Our home is located on the Gulf side (south-west) of the island. Sanibel is one of the unique barrier islands of the world, having an east-west orientation when most islands are north south. So the island is gifted with great sandy beaches and the world's best shelling. At the south-east end of the island is the Lighthouse Beach & Fishing Pier. This is the site of a historic functioning lighthouse. Located on the eastern tip of Sanibel, wrapping around to the bay side; this is where the T-dock-fishing pier is and a boardwalk nature trail winding through native wetlands. From our home, you are minutes away from a 57-acre nature wildlife refuge with Bald Eagles, Ospreys and 100's of other bird species and animals. Just a few miles from the house (5 min by car or 15-20 min. on bicycle) is the quaint town with many unique shops and fabulous restaurants featuring fresh cuisine of all kinds. There is truly something here for the entire family.
