"[This review assumes you know Sanibel]
-- One short block from the beach; short ride on bike path to Schnapper's Hots; ~2 mi. to Pinocchio's Ice Cream and the lighthouse; 6 mi. to Ding Darling
-- Photos are accurate; notice the large propane grill on the deck
-- Stocked with beach furniture, coolers, towels, flashlight, all cooking tools, dish soap, laundry soap, salt/pepper, coffee filters, books, DVDs, etc... Pack light!
-- Good wi-fi and TVs
-- Very very clean
-- Comfortable beds and couch
-- [a minor one] Beware: There are 2 properties next door to each other called "Shell Basket 1" -- this pink one and a blue one (with a pool). If you get a delivery it may go to the wrong place (even if you tell Billy's Bikes the exact address, 1153 Nerita St.)
-- Shower faucet is odd and gives you choice of cool water or scalding (but cool is fine on sunburn!)
-- Manager is nearby but a bit hard to reach in advance for questions -- hopefully this review will answer some."

"We had a great stay! Lorraine is easy to work with and everything was as described. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool, which was actually bigger than portrayed in the picture. The setting is beautiful, the walk to the beach is short (& made easier with the beach cart) and there are many extras provided in the house (beach towels, hair dryers, magazines/games, etc.). The house is also located close to bike paths and we used the bicycles provided. They are in need of a little TLC, but beyond that, everything was perfect! We enjoyed the local restaurants, the Sanibel Thriller and ice cream at Pinocchio's. We also loved the beach access at the end of the road, but enjoyed traveling to Blind Pass to watch the sunset and Bowman's beach to collect awesome shells! Sanibel Island is beautiful and this house made our stay even better! Thank you, Lorraine!"

"We are getting ready to pack up after a wonderful month at Mango House. We liked it so much, we are booked for next year. We appreciated all of the suggestions provided by the owners for sights to see. Thanks to the bikes provided, we spent many hours on Sanibel's bike paths. We appreciated being able to lock up beach chairs to the beach access path fence and not have to carry them back and forth. The home is well equipped, both in the kitchen and on the bookshelves. We spent lots of time sitting on the screen porch looking over the Sanibel River and did see some alligators swim by. We did buy bike flashers for the bikes for the short time on Rabbit Road, which does not have a bike path. We found drivers to be courteous, giving way to the bikers and pedestrians. Thank you to the owners for making their home available to others so we can escape the winter of MI and enjoy Sanibel."
