You have a wonderful vacation home. The views and beautiful scenery are well worth the visit. Your decorating is lovely, stylish yet comfy. We couldn't have asked for a better appointed kitchen and couldn't think of a thing that we needed that wasn't there.

We had a terrific and adventurous stay. Tho we had rain, we found lots of things (games/puzzles and books) to keep us occupied and very relaxed! Great family time. Shelling on Sanibel was as amazing as ever. We also took the Sanibel Trolley to a July 4th Fireworks Cruise! Highly recommend doing something like that.

We really enjoyed visiting off-season, it was so nice to visit a beach that wasn't jam packed, plenty of great restaurants. We missed going thru Ding Darling as we always enjoy that, but they were doing some road work ... a definite for next visit.

During our stay, a power transformer blew and quite a bit of the island was without power overnight, but we opened up the back doors and slept comfortably without the AC. The breeze and the sound of the waves just so close probably helped with that :-)

A beautiful vacation getaway!

Thanks,

We chose to stay on Sanibel Island because we wanted to relax without a lot of development around, and no high rises anywhere. We really enjoyed the island and it was a wonderful vacation. There are many good restaurants, great biking paths, Captiva is close by for more outdoor adventures such as fishing, boating, kayaking and parasailing; however, the true jewel of Sanibel is the glorious beach. It's clean, beautiful, not crowded, quiet, and the shells are completely amazing each day.

Clamshell was very close to the beach and we found its proximity to the Gulf to be exactly what we had wanted. There's a great pathway right to the beach and the owners have all sorts of good water toys in the storage room, which makes it easy to enjoy the beach every day without renting additional items.

The home we rented was very nice, well-furnished, and clean. We enjoyed every moment in it, and the owners were responsive and gracious, even allowing us to check out a few hours later than the contract stated. I'd highly recommend the Clamshell properties to you if you have a desire to stay in a comfortable, well-maintained, clean and pretty home, if you want to be next to the beach, and if you want a quiet atmosphere.

We were there with our daughter and her fiance, and there was plenty of room for two couples. We plan to return!

Sincerely, Mike and Jan Brown, Omaha, NE
