About Tammy Chandler

We have lived in New York since being married 30 years ago and are inching our way to living in a MUCH warmer climate! We have used vrbo.com for family vacations for about 10 years and had wonderful experiences with them so we naturally wanted to list our home on vrbo for those times we can't be there. We both got certified to scuba dive in the last couple years, enjoy the outdoors and value our down time with family. Some of our most precious memories were those years we spent a week together at various homes throughout Florida. We hope that our home will also make some memories that you will cherish for a very long time!

Tammy Chandler purchased this house in 2013

Why Tammy Chandler chose Pine Island

We looked at 20 houses in 2 days when we visited Cape Coral in July and this house was number 20 and when we walked in it was a big WOW for us and the realtor! We felt this was a home that others would find welcoming, comfortable, and fun! We wanted a home on a salt water canal, with a pool, within an hour of an international airport, within a couple hours of diving and within half an hour of the beach. So this house hit the mark! We have set it up with families in mind, to be nice but comfortable and inviting. We hope that you will find it to be a great place to rest, relax and reconnect with those most precious to you!

What makes this house unique

Our house manager is from Europe and speaks English and German!

Great Independence Day Getaway for the Whole Family

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely stay at Journey’s Rest. The pictures really do not reflect how bright, open and inviting this home really is. Our travelers included my husband, our 5 year old son, our 3 month old son, my sister, my parents and me. The home had something for everyone. Our older son especially loved the hidden trundle bed in the “kids” room. The location is perfect. It is centrally located which allowed us to visit the Edison Ford Winter Estate in Fort Myers in the morning and then drive to Captiva for lunch at the Bubble Room. The pool was fabulous and relaxing. And if you love to fish, bring your own pole, or, like my husband, you will end up using the Barbie fishing pole that was with the pool tools for the tarpon, mullet and snook around the dock. We will certainly be back again! Thank you Tammi and Sylvia.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review! We are so glad that you enjoyed your family time at Journey's Rest! I had to chuckle about your husband using the Barbie fishing pole! Guess we will need to put fishing poles on our list! Unfortunately we are not fishers but can get help in that from friends. Please keep us in mind for future rentals. Thanks again for choosing Journey's Rest for you family get away!

Fabulous Family Home

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful March Break holiday at Journey's Rest. The house is spacious and well laid out, and is very well equipped in the kitchen, pool area and for outdoors (ie bikes). The 3D tv was a hit with the kids, as was as the pool. We enjoyed visiting Pine Island, Sanibel Island and the Cape Coral Yacht Club. Naples was a fair drive given the holiday week (traffic), but always nice to visit. The kids caught catfish off the dock and we even spotted an alligator which was a great reminder not to swim in the channel! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to any family wanting to get away for a break, and the ease of communication with the owners and the property manager made the experience a breeze! Thanks again to Tammy and her family for the opportunity.

Amazing home in paradise!

  • 5 of 5
Pictures don't do this home justice. The house is beautiful. It was clean and was beautifully decorated. The pool was warm and clean. They have at least 3 or 4 TV's in the house. There is a WI for the kids and a 3D TV with plenty of movies in the family room. The beds were comfortable. This was the best vacation we have ever had. The owners are a pleasure to deal with. I can't say enough about how great our stay was and how much fun we had. did I mention the fully stocked kitchen or BBQ! Oh Dish TV and high speed Internet, the list goes on and on. I can't wait to go back!

Great experience for our first home rental. This house was as advertised. 4 nice size bedrooms with comfortable beds and pillows. A nice kitchen with all the utensils. A great pool heated to a comfortable temperature, complete with optional safety fence for young children. A nice area close to Fort Myers and Sanibel. The owner was excellent to deal with. I'd definitely recommend this home.

Fabulous Home, centrally located in Southwest Florida! Fun, fun, fun!!!

  • 5 of 5
We have never used vrbo.com before this trip and we were so blessed to be the first renters of this home. The booking process was a cinch and the owners were very fast on replying to our inquiry. The home was fully equipped to handle our group of 8 people. The home was clean, spacious and the pool was wonderful! We appreciated the location of this home. It was in between Fort Myers and Naples and the drive to the different beaches was just a short trip. After spending time at the beach we came home and jumped into the warm, salt-water pool. They also have a Wii for the kids, Dish network for lots of viewing options, a kayak, bicycles and a lot of table space for games. There isn't any carpeting so the noise got a bit echoed when our sons got loud but that's to be expected with the high vaulted ceilings. The kitchen is perfect for cooking meals and the granite countertops are beautiful! The master bathroom has tons of space with 2 sink areas, private toilet area, large bathtub and huge stand-up shower area. The master bedroom also had lots of room with a TV, chairs, & comfortable king size bed. It was a fabulous place for great memories and we can't wait to return! Thank you for sharing your beautiful Florida paradise!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind review! It was a pleasure having your family stay in our home and be the first renters! We are so glad you enjoyed it and got to enjoy the area as well! We appreciate your feedback and will be adding an area carpet to the living room area to cut the noise! It does echo a bit but my husband LOVES the high ceilings because he is tall! We do hope you'll stay in touch and come visit again!

Notes:
Very quiet area of Cape Coral on gulf access salt water canal. No homes across canal and no homes on one side of house. A great place to relax and unwind but close to beaches, great sunsets, shopping, dining and airport. The home features a spacious open floor plan with high ceilings, lots of window and plenty of room for spreading out and enjoying your vacation. Four bedrooms and 2 baths gives the home sleeping for 6-8. The newly heated pool has also been converted to salt water which is easier on the skin and more natural. Lights in the pool and on the lanai make it possible to swim all hours. There is also a kid's gate that is easily assembled to protect your little ones from wandering in the pool. The home also has a security system that allows you to know when doors are being opened for added protection of the little ones. Life jackets are available for boating. There are two floating lounges for the pool. The canal is great for kayaking with little boat activity.
