"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 rented Seaside Rendezvous for the month of July, and an assortment of friends and family stayed with us for various lengths of time throughout the month. Here are the major pluses we most appreciated: Quiet street in a residential area; directly across the street from public beach access; beach chairs, wagon, etc. provided; large home with lots of amenities; a pool; elevator (awesome feature, especially since one of us recently had ankle surgery); and a reasonable rate.
Things that detracted from our stay included: Very poor and/or confusing furniture placements in several of the rooms; disorganized cabinets, which made it very difficult to find things (for example: toys, games and videos were spread among at least five different cabinets); a level of cleanliness that was not quite up to par for what we expect in a top-notch rental; a lack of items in the home left by previous renters, such as cleaning supplies and food staples.
We spent nearly two full days deep cleaning, reorganizing things, and moving the furniture into more workable arrangements. Once we did these things our stay was relaxing and very enjoyable. All of the pieces are there for a five-star rental experience, just a little more attention to detail is needed. For example, when you stay someplace for a month, decent people are going to want to clean...the kitchen, the baths, etc. so we were a little surprised and flummoxed there were no cleaning supplies to be found in the home. I can understand the owners might not want to routinely supply these things, however I would think guests would buy certain items they would leave behind. That has been our experience in other vrbo rentals we have had, and as such, we generally contribute to the cause by buying replacements for anything we use up, or even a gadget we felt the home could use.
These seem like nit-picky things...but as I mentioned, this very good rental could be a five-star with little additional cost or effort."

"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."
