Beautifully decorated cottage very near the beach.
Leslie and Jim were wonderful to us from the very start of our reservation. They contacted us before we visited to see if we had any questions or concerns about the cottage or our stay. They were always available to get a hold of if needed and made sure we settled in when we arrived. They literally thought of everything a guest might need from extra sandals for the beach to bikes, an outdoor grill, beach towels, menus of nearby restaurants, guides of local attractions, and even some food, which worked perfect for us getting in late and not having a chance to get to the store. They left notes and instructions around the house for anything that might be confusing, like how to operate the lights and the TV remotes. The cottage was located away from a busy road, so it was nice and quiet, and yet only about a 3 minute walk to the beach. They were also very accommodating of a few last minute guests that needed a place to stay for a night who were part of our wedding party. I could go on and on about all the wonderful things these owners and their cottage have but I simply don't have enough space. We have never used VRBO before and I cannot imagine ever having a better experience than this. If I could give them more than 5 stars I would. Thank you for everything Leslie and Jim. You made our vacation and wedding on Sanibel absolutely perfect.
Thank you so much. We are so happy that you had a wonderful time for your wedding. You were perfect guest and you would be welcome back anytime.
We wish you the very best.

Great Place - Great Owners!
We have just completed our 2nd stay in the cottage and have already booked our 3rd visit. The owners (Leslie and Jim) think of everything and have it waiting for you when you arrive. Highly recommend!
Just love this place-great location, house in great shape, wonderful responsive owners. This is my little piece of heaven!!
Always a pleasure to have you stay with us! Look forward to seeing you next year.

Comfortable, convenient—close beach access, well-stocked.
We’ve spent four Christmases vacationing in Leslie and Jim’s very nice, comfortable cottage. They provide nearly everything you would need—flip flops, beach umbrellas, beach chairs, beach towels. I even saw some sunglasses in the basket. Leslie also provides some condiments and pantry items—handy. We look forward to this vacation all year long. We bring our little dog. Our daughter visits and sometimes other family. We’ve made good memories in this cottage and on our beloved Sanibel.
Excellent Vacation Spot
The cottage is lovely and clean. Owners are wonderful and so accommodating with any requests. This is our 3rd visit and are looking forward to our 4th!
Home away from home
We visit every year and sometimes twice in a year! The cottage is tastefully decorated with all the comforts of home. No detail is overlooked. The owners are so very thoughtful and accommodating.
Thank you so much! Always a pleasure to have you stay at our cottage. Wonderful guests and we welcome you anytime.

Lovely Cottage/home on quite private lane with short walk to beach, bars and restaurants.
