Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Zdenka & Zdenek

Thank you for a wonderfully restful and peaceful time in your well equipped and very comfortable condo and at the Gulf. We most enjoyed the shelling and sun since we are always sun starved. We thank you for your hospitality and hope to return soon.

Very nice property. Pictures were accurate.

  • 3 of 5

The owner of the property wanted an exact time that we would be arriving which was difficult to give him when visiting family. Also, he asked us to check out an hour before the Home Away time that was stated in the contract which was not appreciated.

Owner's Response: It is our pride to provide an exceptional service to our guests. Part of it is greeting and introducing our guests personally upon their arrival - occasionally even after midnight. As we don’t live on the premises we ask our guests for their approximate arrival time and for a call 1 hour prior to their arrival. Hunderts of our guests do it - except this one. This review is a complete miss-representation of the facts: We asked for an approximate time, not for exact time. This guest wasn’t ready to give us even a time window - she suggested to send a message 30 minutes prior to their arrival. Finally, she indicated they would arrive in the afternoon. Mid of the afternoon she sent a message that they have 4 1/2 hours to drive. They arrived 6 hours later, at 9 p.m. I was in the condo, waiting for them and giving them many informations about the island. We agreed upon a check out time at 10 a.m. - according to the Rental Agreement which she signed. She indicated that they might leave earlier and would just close the door. On the departure day, we arrived at 10:40 and she was still in the kitchen claiming that the contract says 11 a.m. I didn’t want to argue, we apologized and told her to take time they need and that we would be back after 11 a.m. It is simply not true that we demanded her to leave 1 hour earlier than stipulated in the Contract. We collected more than 200 five star reviews on various websites. We always go the extra mile and hundreds of our guests highly appreciate it - this one remains an isolated case.

We had an awesome time at Sanibel! The condo was very clean and very convenient. The owner was very kind and super helpful with details and recommendations. We rented bikes and had a great time biking around the island. The condo is steps away from the pool and the beach and we appreciated the beach chairs/toys that the condo provided.

Beautiful views and great biking

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Sanibel and we had a wonderful time. The hosts were very easy to reach. We were quite delayed in arrival, but they accommodated us with no complaints. Any issue was dealt with quickly. The unit is very conveniently located - we enjoyed being so close to the beach and to the bike paths. The unit had everything we needed for our stay. The parking was easy and we could get the wifi going fine. Good sleeping and plenty of space.
