"[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."

Luxurious home in Sanibel central to beaches, shopping and great restaurants!
"What a wonderful and relaxing trip to Sanibel in this luxurious home! The location is central to beaches, shopping and great restaurants. There is a spectacular pool and hot tub with great privacy and landscaping. This home caters to your every need from a gourmet kitchen to laundry room to a beautiful bath for each bedroom. Plenty of activities for the family in this spacious home: pool area, outdoor lounge area, family games and video games plus a great entertainment system for movies! Walk to the beach, bike around the island or just relax- this home has it all!"

"My family has stayed at this vacation home before and we love it. It is in a lovely section of Sanibel - on the West end where it is less touristy. The home is less than a 5 minute walk to the beach (which is never crowded). The beach sunsets are breathtaking - my husband and I walked down with a glass of wine nearly every night to watch them!
The pool, which is screened in so bugs are never an issue, is extremely private and surrounded with tropical trees and foliage.
The house is truly beautiful and immaculately clean, stocked with everything you could possibly need. Everything is so new, fresh, clean and very tastefully decorated. The beds are so comfortable my husband and I joked we fell asleep as soon as our heads hit the pillow.
The owner Dawn has always been a pleasure to work with and she genuinely tries to make sure you have the best vacation possible!
We will definitely return again - it feels like home as soon as we step in the door!"
