Wonderful experience

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful home in a quiet neighborhood in Sanibel. Very close to Captiva island. We walked daily to the beach with our two young children to watch the sunset, go shelling and fishing. We loved the enclosed lanai and heated pool. The owner was very responsive and great to work with. House was clean and nice. We enjoyed all of the restaurants close by.

Great house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for a week. Wonderful location, very private. We could walk to the beach, bike path, etc. The home was nicely decorated. It had everything that we needed including bicycles, outdoor grill, beach chairs/towels. The heated pool was great. The owner was very accommodating and helpful as far as things to do and restaurants to visit during our stay. He had called once we checked in to make sure that everything was to our satisfaction. I would definitely stay here again!

Of all of the restaurants that we visited, we enjoyed the food and had the most fun at the Key Lime Bistro. I do not recommend the Sunset Grill which is within walking distance of the house, we did not have a very good experience.

Everything else was great!!

Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely home last fall (October 2013) and found it perfect for our needs. We loved the quiet neighborhood that was close to the beach, restaurants and shopping. The house has delightful art throughout, and we enjoyed the heated pool. While we were there, a new washer/dryer was delivered and the local bicycle shop owner refurbished the bikes which we enjoyed riding. We are looking forward to a return visit.

Disappointed

  • 1 of 5

This was our fourth year coming to Sanibel and the first time we were not happy. House is in a great location and the deck is its best feature. House interior is old and tired and in need of a complete makeover including flooring, furniture, and appliances. Owner is charging going Sanibel rates for a substandard home. Unfortunately house faces north and thus the living areas are dark and the kitchen has poor lighting. No place to sit in the sun in the winter months.

We arrived for a two month stay and was greeted by dirt and grime, mold in the kitchen and on the pool furniture, inoperative window blinds, a dirt clogged air return, and a HVAC that did not work. Linens were locked away. Although the owner was responsive to the issues, all of this was preventative and we were acting as his on site property manager. Took four days till most was squared away and we requested a rebate for that time, about 5% of our total payment, and we did not even get the courtesy of a reply.

Bottom line, house has potential and should charge a lot less until it is updated. If you are still not sure, ask for a photo of the bathrooms and you will understand the need for an update.

Very relaxing stay at this wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for a week at the cottage and found it to be a well-appointed, tropically decorated, home away from home. We enjoyed its spaciousness, the quiet location, and obviously the heated pool. I would highly recommend this property to couples or small families and will definitely consider another return!

A relaxing week without any worries

  • 5 of 5

Yes,location,location,and location,this home was very private and the atmosphere inside was just what the ad said-relaxed.A three minute bike ride to the Lazy Famingo resturant which has the best clam chowder,and friendly atmosphere.Another minute and you are on the gulf at Bowmans Beach.The bikes ,beach chairs,coolers all there with the property. The screened in pool (heated) was awesome.The property was very clean and well kepted and all was needed was your tooth brush and food&drink. Just a laided back vacation,we had a car rented and went everywhere. This place is the best bang for your dollar and Jim is the easiest guy to work with.We will be going back agian,Thank you Jim.
