We booked this vacation rental after sifting through many properties that the resort and island had to offer. Due to the fact that we had never been here we weren't sure if we should book through the resort or not. We were so pleased with the unit and the location. The owner provides everything you need in regards to umbrellas, beach chairs, and even pool and beach toys. The swimming pools which are available for our use were never over crowded and the distance to the beach was fantastic. You are situated right inside the gate so walking to the restaurants and shops was super easy. We rented a golf cart....due to the urging of the children. I would recommend making your reservation for this prior to your arrival as they were all booked and I had to have one brought over from Fort Myers. It wasn't necessary they just like the idea of having one. Starbucks, Doc Fords, an small grocery store is literally less than five minute walk across the street and all of the other restaurants are another five minute walk. If you can stop at the grocery store prior to coming over the causeway do so. The grocery stores are pricey. The unit was stocked with everything we could have needed! It was a lovely stay. We took a cruise with Sanibel Cruise Line which was incredible.
We did the four hour cruise with Mike as our captain and we spent the afternoon with dolphins literally swimming an arms length away from us while we were kayaking and SUP. It was incredible!
