  • Something for Everyone!

    "We love Sanibel, and are excited to have found the perfect house for our family when we visit in the winter. The main house has a master suite and two additional bedrooms. There's a separate suite off the lanai and another room downstairs with futons, and its own bathroom so large groups have plenty of space, and even some privacy. The entire lanai and pool are enclosed in a mesh cage, making outdoor activities free of worries about bugs and weather. We loved reading, talking and eating out there. The swimming pool was the perfect temperature, and the spa a nice way to relax at the end of the day. Our techie grandson loved that there were wall-mounted TVs & integrated systems throughout the house. He and our grand daughter liked to use the playstation for games in the little downtime we had. Our other grandson liked to have a place to watch movies on the big screen. The kitchen is well-equipped and there are numerous spaces for large family gatherings. There are bicycles, beach chairs, sand toys and floats to use, so we didn't need to get our own. The walk to the beach through a tropical setting was magical, especially when we unexpectedly popped out on West Gulf Drive! Once crossing the street, the beach was an easy walk via a deeded walkway. The beach was never crowded, always a plus when with a large group. The location is ideal as the house is in a private, quiet development, yet with easy access to all points on the island. Jerry's & Bailey's grocery stores and shopping centers are both within walking distance. Laura, the owner, was wonderful to work with & responsive to all our requests. Her on island manager, Diane, was very helpful as well. We've rented many places on Sanibel, each with something special about it. Everyone agreed that L'Etoioe de Mer is the best!"

  • It is counter to my personal interest to write this review, but.....

    "My wife and I (late 60's, and cockapoo dog, just spent the month Dec, 2013 at this property-- visited by kids and grand kids for a part of the time. In many ways, I would prefer that only a limited number of people know about it-- so that we can continue to take advantage of it, free of competition-- we have booked again for December, 2014! It is ideal in many ways-- private, quiet, great location on east end of Island, all the necessary facilities in the house for a carefree time. Pool and Jacuzzi are great and the furnishings are very tasteful and comfortable. Easy to keep clean. Tim, the manager, is quite responsive and helpful. You cannot go wrong renting this place, but Shhhhh....."

  • Island living at its best

    "My sister and I stayed in this adorable home. Easy,easy walk to the beach !! A covered deck accessible from bedrooms and living area with stairs to the pool all inside a two story lanai made relaxing poolside a joy. Bike paths on the island make local travel fun. The owners are friendly & knowledgeable of island life. Will visit again soon."

  • John - Escape from the Frozen Tundra

    "Wow!! We have been vacationing on Sanibel for over 20 years and Las Ondas is one of the finest rental homes on the island. The pictures acurately describe the many updates that have been made both inside and out. The kitchen, is well equiped for either casual or formal dining. The pool and lanai area provide a private setting for relaxing and entertaining. The yard and gardens are well planted and provide a mini-wildlife sancuary with gopher tortoise, pileated woodpeckers and many egrets. The house was very clean and well maintained. We love the beach and this house is a short walk (across the street!) from the beach for fun in the sun. Sharon and Judy (the rental agents at C2C) were very helpful and quick to answer questions that arose. For example, when the dryer died, they had a new one ordered and installed in 3 days! The location of the property is a short bike ride to shopping, restaurants and the Ding Darling wildlife preserve. Las Ondas was a great escape from the frozen tundra this year…We Will Be Back!!"

Private Homes Travel Tips

Sanibel Island Vacation Rentals: Experience the Waves

Nestled within the Gulf of Mexico is Sanibel. This island waits beyond Florida's western borders, connected only through a massive bridge. It's formed to sand and lush forests, creating a reputation without peer. Families wanting a diverse adventure will find much to celebrate here. It's small town charm sprawled across tropic scenes. It will amaze. And Sanibel Island vacation rentals will do the same: offering the comfort you need for the cost you can afford. The sea is now accessible.

Sanibel Island Cottages: The Importance of Location

There is little logic in seeking out Sanibel and then staying on the mainland. You want a secluded experience, not another hotel. You don't want the causeway to become a barrier, separating you from all you love. That is why you need Sanibel Island beach homes. These convenient alternatives will allow you to remain amongst the wild. You will not have to leave. You will instead just have modern amenities within natural beauty. It's a vacation without worry.

Sanibel Island Beach Homes: Find Your Thrills

After languishing within Sanibel Island cottages, you'll then wish to experience all the joys beyond. There are many. Begin the morning by biking the Rabbit Road Trail, where its namesake creatures will appear in the early hours (as well as an assortment of birds and other wildlife). Let the Sanibel Island Cruise Line take you into the waves, providing scuba diving and dolphin watching. The Tarpon Bay Explorers will lead you through the National Wildlife Refuge, offering pristine views and creature sightings. Take a break from the sun with the Islander Trading Post, perfect for antiquing. And then drive to the Big M Casino to test your fate. It's the fun you need.

Sanibel Island Vacation Rentals: Play, Always

A trip is meant to be enjoyed. Now it can be. With Sanibel Island cottages, you'll be near the adventure and away from the frustrations.
