Why Leslie & Jim chose Sanibel Island

We started renting this lovely cottage in 1985...fell in love with the cottage and Sanibel and in 1993 when it came available to purchase we didn't hesitate.

It has always represented freedom, peace and a real vacation to us.

What makes this house unique

Every morning and evening we would take the short walk to the beach and totally feel revived and relaxed. Loved the southern exposure and big sliding patio doors that would always allow the cottage to be bright and cheery. This place will up lift any spirit. Perfect!

Wonderful vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year that we have spent the month at this lovely spot. It is a very happy cottage!

The place is well stocked with essentials, condiments & spices. The owners are very responsive & eager to please. The beds & linens are great & very comfortable. The House is clean & well maintained. It is a quiet street & a short walk to the beach. The bikes only add to the fun. Just a little bit of heaven !!!

Serene Sanibel Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Arriving at this Sanibel cottage was a wonderful way to begin the new year. We were welcomed by the owners, Jim and Leslie, who made sure we knew where everything was and how things worked. As soon as we walked inside, we knew this would be a terrific home away from home. The wall colors were tropical, which made us feel we were truly on a tropical vacation. The kitchen had more room than it shows in the pictures. The cupboards were filled with nice dishes and glassware, along with condiments, spices, and everything you probably will need. It was the little extra touches that were welcomed. A basket of goodies was on the counter, flameless candles were abundant, and everything was clean and neatly in place. The yard was a good size, and a row of tall hedges in front made the house seem more secluded. The back will lead you to the beach which is only a short stroll. Since the owners live only a few minutes away, they are always available to help with a problem if it should arise. We had our two golden retrievers with us, and they, too, enjoyed their stay. We will all be back next January to welcome 2016. Thanks, Jim and Leslie!

Perfect beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is charming and immaculate and we had a wonderful stay. It is steps away from the beach and the owners are incredibly thoughtful. They stock the cottage with so many essential items - what a treat to arrive after dark and find snacks, a bottle of wine, milk, bread, cereal, coffee/tea for our breakfast, and bathrooms stocked with toiletries. We especially enjoyed cruising around the island with the two bikes that are included with the cottage. And being able to have our two dogs along on our trip makes the vacation for us. I would give this property my highest recommendation!

The perfect getaway on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was absolutely pristine! I found it by chance online and WOW WOW WOW! Everything you want in a home away from home was included...from shampoo to umbrellas, beach chairs, bikes and grills, fully stocked kitchen hardware & condiments. I could go on and on but you just have to see it to believe it! Two min walk from beach...Safe!!!! Beautiful decor just added to the atmosphere of a perfectly relaxing vacation. Shells everywhere. We entered in the evening and was welcomed by a bottle of wine and snacks. Three tvs.. Cold a/c and cozy right in the heart of Sanibel and a short drive to Captiva. Close to everything. Gas...grocery...restaurants. Souvenirs. One word of advice...don't pack a lot! Pack light because everything besides your clothes is there!! The people were so nice. We will be back!! A blessing.
