"[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."

"House was nice and clean. Had problems with internet and power outages. Breakers went off during storms frequently. Internet was intermittent at best-very difficult for my hi-tech family. Enjoyed the bicycles and hot tub and the location was great.
Construction started on property adjacent to the home, so we were up early during the week days due to the noise.
Loved the kitchen and split floor plan.
Location was great and used the beach chairs and umbrella frequently. Really enjoyed our trip."

"My husband, 2 children and our chocolate labrador just spent a week at this property. It is so charming, clean, and has everything you need for a beach vacation. We were able to dock our boat right on the property dock, walk across the road to the beach, and swim every minute of the day in the pool. It's within walking distance to a general store and a few restaurants too. We saw manatees, dophins, fish and dozens of differnt birds during our visit, right in the bay! We will be back for SURE! Property manager Chip was amazing too... helped with everything we needed."

"This was the third, month long visit for my wife and me. During our stay we were visited by our children and grandchildren. The house is roomy, clean and well appointed. Our two grandchildren especially enjoyed the loft with its twin beds and tv. The master bedroom is roomy with its own bath and a slider to a deck overlooking the pool. It is especially enjoyable for all the company in the afternoon watching the colors change in the western sky. There is also an outside dining area that is screened and surrounded by foliage. Great place for breakfast and the evening meal...a great home. The house is next to a large, clean and heated pool...never a crowd in that there are only nine homes in Sealoft Village. Next to the pool is a tennis court in very good condition...it is almost always open to play. From the pool, it's a pleasant stroll on a boardwalk to a beautiful beach that is sparsely populated. One can look to the left to the Sundial and right towards the public beach and see crowds while this beach is wide open. Dolphins appear almost everyday in mid-morning...nice sight while sipping your second coffee on your beach chair. Obviously the location is excellent. It's only a mile to Jerry's supermarket....a pleasant bike ride for those small purchases. A variety of great restaurants are only a short drive away..can't wait to return to the island."
