"This house was, bar none, the best rental we have ever stayed at. It is very secluded and private with dense mature landscaping and views overlooking the bayou. The house itself was very spacious, even more so than the pictures suggest, and the layout allowed for a fantastic indoor/outdoor living experience. There was a wall of sliding glass doors that opened onto a fabulous outdoor deck overlooking the large heated swimming pool. The entire area was contained within a screened lanai. The house is also quite close to Bowman’s Beach, and very walkable. We were able to get there in 15 minutes with 3 children (aged 5, 2, and 6 months) in tow. A couple of adults could easily do it in less than 10.
As for the amenities, the house was very well appointed. The master bedroom is basically its own enclave, with a vaulted ceiling, two decks and a full high-end bathroom. There were 3 other bedrooms on the other side of the house - a queen room, a twin room, and a bunk room. In terms of supplies, there really was everything you could possibly need for your stay. Each bathroom contained many extra rolls of toilet paper. Also provided was dish soap, laundry detergent, oil, spices, and cleaning supplies. They had more dishes, appliances and cookware than in our own kitchen. The pool was conveniently managed by Eli, the pool guy, every Wednesday morning, and our children very much enjoyed the many provided pool toys.
All in all, we loved our stay on Sanibel, and we can’t say enough about this house. It is a gorgeous retreat. Thank you Brooke for all your help!"
