About Desmond & Caroline Emery

We live in the south of England with our two children. We've been regular vistors to Florida since the 1980's and fell in love with Sanibel while visiting relatives in Fort Myers. We are now semi-retired, which enables us to visit Sanibel more frequently of late.Our ambition is to make all our guests feel welcome to our home and that they leave feeling they have enjoyed their stay and would like to return.

Desmond & Caroline Emery purchased this house in 2011

Why Desmond & Caroline Emery chose Sanibel Island

We have travelled extensively across the USA, Europe and Asia with our family; however we felt at home on Sanibel as soon as we travelled over the causeway! From the moment we saw our property in its fabulous acre lot, we fell in love with it. However, the property was run-down and badly needed re-modelling but we saw the potential to create a perfect vacation home for ourselves and for occasional rental guests. The property is well situated to access all the facilities of both Sanibel and Captiva.

We especially enjoy the tropical breezes that cool the house, lazing in the heated pool, sitting on the lanai, viewing the amazing wildlife and gently cycling to Bowman's beach or Blind Pass to swim in the sea and watch the sun go down.

What makes this house unique

This is our home and is very well equipped. As we primarily use the home ourselves and normally rent to monthly renters we ensure that it is kept in excellent condition and is truly a home away from home.

One of the loveliest properties we have stayed in

  • 5 of 5
We have vacationed on Captiva and Sanibel for the last 20 years and this was one of the best properties in which we have stayed. Lovely, secluded location but with easy access to Bowmans Beach and the restaurants on both Sanibel and Captiva.

The house is exactly as shown in the pictures; modern, exceptionally clean, really comfortable and well stocked (and bug free). We travelled with our two teenage children and the screened pool gave us plenty of room to relax outside and the indoors layout allowed us to spread out indoors, too. The gopher tortoise made several appearances. The provision of an XBox and Xfinity were great additions as were the bikes. The owners, Caroline and Des, are really helpful and have put a lot of thought into making visitors feel welcome. We are very grateful to them for being able to share their property.

We would thoroughly recommend Dinkins Cottage to anyone - provided it didn't interfere with our chances of being able to come back again!

Relaxing stay at beautiful house on Sanibel

  • 5 of 5
We could not have asked for more.
The house was exceptionally clean and well kept. The modern decor was to our taste.The house was fully equipped with everything we could have wished for.
The garden was beautifully maintained and boy, did we love the pool.
We enjoyed watching for the gopher tortoise who put in a few appearances. Saw a woodpecker several times in the garden. Don't know if they are common in Florida, but I've never seen one before.
The house was in a lovely neighbourhood and very handy for amenities in Captiva and also Sanibel. The bikes were a great addition and the cycle to the beach is easy.
The holiday was wonderful. We feel very relaxed even after a week back home.
The owners were extremely helpful. I can't recommend this house highly enough.

  • 5 of 5
Fantastic!!!
We've spend a memorable holiday with 4+1 people (4 adults and a baby boy). A very nice arranged and big property, perfectly furnished, equipped and a beautiful house, the pool extraordinary - and the location, perfect for beach holiday with the family (bowmans beach is easily within reach by bike). We'd love to come back someday!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in the villa for 3 weeks this summer, our party consisted of myself, my wife and our 15 year old son.
The photographs and description are exactly what you get, an absolutely gorgeous villa.
Having the deck chairs and sun shade for the beach is very useful and having bikes to use was probably one of the best things, Sanibel is a very lovely place to cycle around.
You see on web sites that villas are not overlooked by others, but normally other villas can see your pool or are just a few feet to the side of your villa. Dinkins cottage is not overlooked by anything what so ever, it is totally surrounded by trees and bushes but the garden is such a size that it feels very open. It is the perfect place to unwind and relax, you can also see a lot of the Sanibel wildlife (not just the tortoise).
There is one down side however to renting this villa, you will feel very down when you have to leave to go home.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa and we will be looking at using it again some time in the future.

So Magic!

  • 5 of 5
We rent the villa for 3 weeks in August 12. 2 adults and 2 childrens. The place is really nice. Villa is well equipped and very confortable. Totally conform to the description. The bowman's beach is 10 min by bikes. The garden is large and allow you to be quiet when you are in the pool. We think it is the place to be for magic vacation and hope we could come back soon. Thanks to Desmond & Carilna for their kindness.
