"We absolutely fell in love with Palm Paradise. The beautiful setting, close proximity to the beach, and the comfort of this gorgeous home made us feel really at home immediately. The furnishing and decor were perfect, and the pool area, surrounded by lovely flowering shrubs and lush foliage was a joy. There was so much space, along with everything you might need and so much more. We enjoyed the beach equipment and the bikes, and early mornings and evenings spent on the terrace lazing on the wicker chairs was so nice. A lovely spot for listening to the birds or reading.
We found the wildlife fascinating - birds, lizards, frogs, occasional snake (harmless) not to mention the ibis, great egret and cardinals that visited. Osprey circled above frequently.
We were lucky enough to spot a bobcat one night as we returned from a restaurant, and at J N Ding Darling and the Bailey Tract, we saw alligators and racoons.
The photos of the house don't show how spacious it really is and I can honestly say that having rented many homes on Sanibel and Captiva, including one very expensive Captiva beach house, this house is our favourite. It was a joy to spend time there and I really hope we will return. It was well worth the nine hour plus flight!"

"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."

"We spent a wonderful time in Sanibel and enjoyed so much the typical American confortable house that Melinda and Stan have created : The 3 very confortable bedrooms (very good beds), nice open living room, fully equipped kitchen, the pool area is very nice, we enjoyed the 4 bikes that we used every day to go to the beach or to explore the area around, we saw dolphins and manatees right on the nearest beach from the house. Although we did many things such as boat renting, waverunners, kayak on the river, we regret that we could not stay 2 or 3 weeks instead of a full month (minimum stay), it would be better four our teenagers who need to be occupied all the time, but we definitly had a lovely time at coconut hideway and recommend totally this house to enjoy Sanibel island."

"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."
