Great Location for a Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I wish that every transaction could be as smooth and easy as arranging our family vacation with Kathy to stay at this home. She was very friendly, knowledgeable, hospitable, and extremely responsive to any questions we had (whether during our booking, during our stay, or even after we had left). I chose to correspond with her via email, and always got a quick response from her - typically within a matter of a few minutes. I have nothing but positive things to say about her and consider her a "friend I never met". I have no reservations about recommending her if you ever have an opportunity to visit the area.

Regarding the house, the location is a perfect "launching spot" for the activities in the area. Whether you are a water sports enthusiast, enjoy cycling, golf, beaches, shelling, or just relaxing and passing the time away by the pool, this house allows you to do it all. We would spend the day out enjoying the area and then come home and lounge around the pool, which was perfect for us.

As others have said, the house is in a quiet, friendly neighborhood - perfect for afternoon walks or riding the available bicycles. There are also three neighborhood guinea hens that free roam and are entertaining to watch.

If you've ever considered visiting the area, I would highly recommend this property. Our family is looking forward to the opportunity to stay here again next summer.

Perfect bungalow for our family. It had everything we needed and more to visit this part of the country. Super nice people and professional to work with. Close to everything this area needs has to offer. Fair and honest people. Thanks again for a great stay of almost two weeks. We will be back!!!

Clean, close to everything, great private pool

  • 5 of 5

The property was fantastic! Working with Kathy was a dream- she was attentive, kind, and even gave us restaurant recommendations. The house was easy to get to from the airport and it's in a great location where we visited Captiva, Sanibel, and Fort Myers Beach without a problem. Having a private pool was incredible, as well as a grill and everything you could need in the kitchen. Would absolutely stay again!!

Exceptional Vacation Ral

  • 5 of 5

e can't thank Kathy enough for opening her home to us. Kathy is a great person and does everything to be accommodating. We have stayed in both of Kathy's rentals and they both surpassed our expectations. Her homes are nicely decorated with many personal touches. The kitchens were well equipped and updated. The beds were comfortable and everything was sparkling clean. We loved the screened in porch and her pool was so relaxing and private. She even provided beach towels, beach chairs and bicycles. We will definitely look for Kathy's rentals the next time we visit.

Most Relaxing 2 week vacation in the sun!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Kathy's bungalow! Very quiet neighborhood and we spent most of our time in the back yard in the pool. The porch was where we ate our meals & relaxed. Kathy has everything you need from children's play stuff to pool & beach rafts & chairs. She has bicycles that we rode almost daily. The beds were so comfy!! It was our first time and we're coming back again.

Awesome 4 weeks of total relaxation!!!

  • 5 of 5

Private and well maintained, this home is the perfect getaway. It is located in a year round neighborhood which provides for a quiet atmosphere with friendly neighbors. It is also less than 1/2 mile to Publix, Fitness facilities, and several restaurants. The owner is super accommodating and very responsive to questions, etc. Anything you would need for a day at the beach or the comfort of home is provided. Although we could not get our dog to swim in the pool, he enjoyed "fishing" his toys out. And, of course, he enjoyed the dog friendly beach on Sanibel. After 8 years without a vacation, we could not have chosen a more perfect place. We will be back next year for sure!
