Thank you for allowing us to use your lovely home. We had a wonderfully

restful stay. The pool was amazing and the beach was absolutely perfect.

We adore Sanibel more and more each time we come here for a visit.

Thanks again.

Sanibel paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This June we spent our third vacation at the coconut hideaway. We love the location of this property as it is located very near a quiet stretch of beach. The home comes equipped with umbrella, wagons and chairs, which were perfect. The pool is absolutely perfect and our two little ones loved washing off the sand in the outdoor shower then jumping in the pool. The island eating was great as always although I was treated very poorly at the Blue Giraffe(maybe a complete misunderstanding, but will not return). The clam shack, pink flamingo, doc fords, George & Wendy's and traditions were all fantastic and as expected. My family has been to many beaches and this home on this island is always where we return for the ultimate peaceful rejuvenating vacation. Owners Mel and Stan are also fantastic!

Ideal vacation hideaway on Sanibel Island

  • 5 of 5

I always enjoy the time I spend in this beautiful home on Sanibel Island. The location is excellent, affording easy access to the beach and wildlife conservation area. The home is surrounded by beautiful palm trees and vegetation. Inside it was well maintained, comfortable and airy. I loved spending time on the balcony, especially in the morning enjoying my coffee. The private , caged pool was wonderful. I look forward to returning next year.

A beautiful island home.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a month in December at the Coconut Hideaway on Sanibel Island in the Sea Oats neighborhood. This neighborhood is very near the wildlife conservation area on the island. This meant that every day we were treated to sightings of osprey, hawks, egrets, cranes, great blue herons and pelicans among other birds flying overhead.The home is clean, very comfortable and quiet. Inside the house it is light, airy, with vaulted ceilings, an open concept floor plan and a beach home decor. The layout and amenities were excellent with 3 TVs, a stereo system, WiFi, and washer dryer. Outside, in old Florida style, it had a covered and screened porch running the length of the house with wicker cushioned chairs and a table where you could take your breakfast or read the paper. It was a home away from home. We had everything we needed and more. It was private with lush foliage and plants surrounding the house. It felt like an oasis sitting on the porch overlooking the screened, heated pool and the beautifully tended garden with orchids, avocado plants, bananas, coconuts, owl boxes, and bird feeders surrounding the small ponds. Yet when you walked down the driveway you were actually surrounded by similar homes. We made good use of the bikes, the wagon, the beach chairs and the pool toys.The beach was a short stroll away. The neighborhood was simply lovely and lush, with palms, fruit trees and flowering plants of all kinds. The neighbors were family-friendly and we encountered folks walking dogs, children riding bikes and playing catch, and couples out for a stroll as we made our way towards the beach. Night time was spectacular. The homes were decorated with seasonal lights which was very pretty but even better was the night sky and the stars.The house even had a telescope for star gazing! The house was superbly located near bike paths that would take you all over the island. About 10 minutes away by car was Baileys grocery and hardware store, restaurants with a wide range of menus, bookstores, cafes, a marina with boating and fishing charters, a library, a small island cinema, a live theater, the shell museum, and the island recreation/fitness center. The beach is world class- white sand strewn with shells of many varieties, small beach birds and of course dolphins playing in the water, following sailboats and fishing boats. I would highly recommend this property. The owners were very pleasant and helpful. We will definitely return! Theresa, Chris and Ruth

We're hooked

  • 5 of 5

We've rented this home on lovely Sanibel Island 3 years in a row. It's attractive, practical, well-located and well-cared for. In addition to amenities such as a heated, screened pool with overlooking deck, bicycles for easy, quick access to the beach, Doc Ford's or Ding Darling Nature Reserve via nearby bike paths, there are colorful orchids growing on palm trunks, chairs and umbrellas for the beach, and plenty of comfortable places to relax alone or with company, indoors or by the pool. It's a quiet location, with easy access to the beach and much of Sanibel, and ideal for kids and biking.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review our island hideaway. As owners we take pride in maintaining the property the best we can since it is our home as well when in Sanibel. The island's unique charm has many "nature enthusiasts" coming back year after year. Our proximity to the beach, Ding Darling, the Rec Center, and the bike path make our Sanibel Hideaway an ideal vacation spot. Thank you for your kind comments and we look forward to having you back again next year. Stan and Melinda

Paradise Vacation - July 2015

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time in Sanibel, we loved the island pace, it was paradise. The house was very nice, clean and perfect for us. We absolutely loved the lanai and inground pool, we swam almost every day that we were there. Also loved the furnished bikes and we got lots of use out of them. Loved that the beach was a short walk away and we did lots of shelling. We can't wait to visit this paradise again.

Owner's Response: Dear Nancy, Thank you so much for your kind review. It's very important for us to maintain our high standard in keeping the house and property in top condition. We are on island for a few days this month and Stan, at this moment, is outside painting the lanai . The weather has been absolutely fantastic!! Hope to have you back again in the future. Sincerely, Melinda and Stan
