This house is perfect for a stay on Sanibel Island, close to the beach, swimming pool, 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, fully supplied with bikes, beach and pool toys, a full kitchen and more. I would return here in a second. We highly recommend this property. 5 stars from our family. Great places to eat close by, Island Cow, Over Easy Café, Island Pizza and Bailey's and Jerry's for groceries.

                                                                    We spent 3 months of this past winter at this property. The house inside is comfortably furnished with updated kitchen and bathrooms. The pool is a good size surrounded by lots of greenery. The location is ideal as it is a very short walk to the beach but it is isolated enough to enjoy the peace and quiet of this island and its wildlife.... armadillos visiting at suppertime, the brown hare that enjoyed the lawn at breakfast time. Excellent internet and cable service. The owners are very attentive and responded very quickly to any inquiries. Highly recommended.

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    Thank you for the kind review.

                                                                    We are pleased you enjoyed your time on sanibel.

                                                                    Linda T.

                                                                    This home is secluded and private and an easy walk to the beach. The pool was wonderful to return to after an afternoon of shelling on the beach. It has a great floor layout with 2 private master suites and 2 bedrooms with 2 twin beds each. Lots of room to spread out. It had everything we needed. There were bikes of various sizes and we enjoyed many bike rides during our stay. If we were to ever return to Sanibel, we would choose this property again! The owner quickly responded to any questions or issues. Our only problem was with internet and cell phone coverage. The internet connection was not secure and it seemed everyone in the area was using it. It was very difficult to access internet. We ended up getting a Verizon hotspot of our own. We use T Mobile for our cell phone carrier and their service was very spotty on the island. If you have Verizon it is no problem.

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    We enjoyed having the May renters as guests in our vacation home and appreciate their kind review.

                                                                    Verizon is a more reliable cell and internet connection on the island and we appreciate the helpful information.

                                                                    Wonderful House

                                                                    Leu K.

                                                                    This house and its garden with pool is fantastic!

                                                                    The location is a short walk to the beach and off the main street which makes it quiet. The house is spacious and well kept. We would stay again and recommend this property to anyone seeking a fantastic vacation in one of the best rental properties we have ever enjoyed.

                                                                    Thank you for letting us stay at your home!

                                                                    Secluded and Accessible

                                                                    Cleta C.

                                                                    The house is nestled back from the street away from the hussel and bussel of daily beach life. It's very private, while being a short stroll to the beach - this affords you the best of both worlds. The photo's of the property are spot on. The two master bedrooms provide privacy and seclusion from the family - Grandpa was able to have his nook away from the rest of the family.

                                                                    The kids loved the pool - actually, even more than the beach, so it was a huge hit with the family. Also, they enjoyed dining on the huge lanai - Auntie K enjoyed dinner with the young ones, and the other adults enjoyed a leisurely dinner in the dining room. Smile.

                                                                    The home is well equipped and has been carefully remodeled and upgraded for today's current lifestyle. The owners have carefully considered and managed to provide comfort and easy living - it's a home that's well thought out, not fussy or overdone. Great touches that improve your life.

                                                                    The owners are very responsive and care about the property and their guests. Although, we had a few items that required attention, they were not something that the owner would have had prior knowledge of, and they were very prompt in addressing the issues.

                                                                    Sanibel has been a favorite place for many years, and staying in this home was a pleasure.

                                                                    Sanibel Island

                                                                    We had a great vacation in this Sanibel Island house. Everything was perfect, lots of room, a heated pool, bikes, across the street from the beach and fantastic hosts. It was like being in our own little tropical paradise. My daughters are begging me to book it again next year.
