This was our second time staying on Sanibel. We thought we were hooked the first year but after staying in this gorgeous beach house we have fallen in love. Our first year on Sanibel was in a resort setting which was also beautiful. But nothing will compare to the privacy and beauty of this house. The photos online are beautiful however cannot do justice to the real beauty of this house. The kitchen is by far the best part of the house. It is GIANT and to say it is beautiful is an understatement. Fully stocked with everything you could need as well. All the decor in the house is wonderful. The house was absolutely spotless on arrival, and like I said the pictures don`t do it justice. The private backyard oasis is what made the vacation for us. We are beach lovers so we spent every single day on the beach but by 5 o o`clock when our small children had enough ocean water they loved coming back to our personal heated pool. Next to the pool was a garage stocked with EVERY SINGLE pool toy or beach toy you could ever need. Including a beach trolley with chairs for the beach to make transporting all your toys (and coolers) to the beach easy. Not that it was far, open the gate and it is about a 30 second walk to the beautiful Sanibel beach. The house only has two bedrooms but one of them has an extra daybed which was perfect for our 3 year old. Also, next to the pool there is a separate guest bedroom with it`s own keyed access.We did not need this room but would love to go back with our family so we could use it! We loved the quiet private street that the house was on and loved taking the bikes that were provided to the store everyday. I would highly highly recommend this house to anybody!!
