Thank you Beach Road Villas for hosting another memorable vacation in Sanibel! We had the pleasure of staying in a newly remodeled unit (Lighthouse). The villa was clean and bright, very accommodating and (as always) thoughtfully equipped. A home away from home atmosphere. BRV has been the exclusive destination for our family vacation for many years. We were delighted to discover that some of our suggested changes from last year's visit had been incorporated into the renovation, particularly the flooring on the screened patio which is such a pleasant place to sit and read, particularly in the very early hours of a beach morning. Our shelling excursions to the lighthouse yielded a trove of shells due to the tropical storm that had parked itself over the island for the first two days of our stay. The storm turned out to be an absolute thrill more than a washout! If you like to take home clean shells, check out the set up which the owner has placed on the side of the property to wash your treasures! Noteworthy too are the bicycles that are made available to guests of BRV, negating the expense of renting which can get very costly, especially if your vacation includes several people and is more than a few days in duration. Since it will be your primary mode of travel throughout the island for sightseeing (and ice cream!!), having bikes in good working order like those at BRV and always seeming to be available is a real plus as well. We found that even if all of the units are occupied, there were still plenty of bikes on hand for everyone. We were never disappointed. The same goes for beach equipment. I would be remiss if I did not mention that the owner has taken particular pride in maintaining very lovely, landscaped surroundings. In the quiet of the mornings and evenings, you can listen not only to nature but also to the sound of water cascading from the fountains that grace the courtyard. We have watched the grounds change over the years as they have matured into a tropical paradise. Though the extent of your rejuvenation is up to you, the scene that has been carefully set by the BRV owner can't help but propel you into a very relaxing and therapeutic stay at Sanibel. Truly, Sanibel is a fun place to play and BRV is a gem. I highly recommend both for your vacation destination.
