A great place to relax away from NE winters

  • 5 of 5

The house is clean and well maintained with all of the comforts of home. The kitchen is fully equipped for casual and more formal meals. We enjoyed cooking on the barbie. This home is spacious and we and our guests had plenty of options for relaxing. TVs and wi fi worked.

We were near enough to the beaches? Sanibel activities (community center)and restaurants.

Hated to leave. Will stay in this property again next year!

Had a wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

Fishing and shelling were great. House was unique, clean and comfortable with everything we needed to make the stay enjoyable. Lots to do in the area. Beaches were kind of a distance to walk, but use the bikes and get there in minutes. Would love to stay here again.

A delightful cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is located just across the road from Bowman;s Beach, the best beach on Sanibel. And the Home Away description is accurate. The house is equipped with most anything you might need for vacation: Beach chairs and towels, bicycles, kitchen utensils, big screen TV (we were there during the Olympics, so the TV was great.), WiFi, etc. The screened in lanai is perfect for dining. Each of the bedrooms has a direct access to the outdoors. The house can sleep 9 people, but there are only 1 & 1/2 baths. You may have traffic jams around the bathrooms :) There is an outside shower.

Very nice. Quiet.

  • 5 of 5

We have thoroughly enjoyed our week at this cozy Sanibel rental. Property is as described. Biking to the beach is so convenient. Bed was comfy. Lanai was perfect for entertaining a few friends for dinner one night. Owner was communicative and easy to deal with. We will definitely be contacting you in the future, Chris to schedule another vacation. Hate that we only have one more day here! Thanks for sharing your island home with us! :-)
