"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 spent a month this summer at this home. The owners were great to work with. We had a problem with the internet and they had a service tech here the next day. The home is fully furnished. The bikes and kayaks were in good condition. The Hot tub looks new. They have a company service it weekly.
We had six adults in our group and found the home accomidated us very well. It is about a 5 minute walk to the bay beach where we kayaked and fished. It is about a 10 minute bike ride to the gulf. They have a pull behind cart for the bikes which makes the beach trips fun and easy. We did not play golf but it is in a golf course development. There are also tennis courts about a quarter mile from the house.
It is easy access on and off the island. We stayed at the West end last year and spent hours in traffic. If you don't rent this home rent on the East end or expect to spend a lot of time in traffic.
Make sure you eat at gradma Dot's at the marina about a five minute bile ride from the house. Great breakfast and grouper sandwiches. Doc Fords is also our family favorite.
We recommend this home to families or people who like peace and quiet. The back yard is a refuge. Very private and quiet. We enjoyed walking around the golf course in the evening. No traffic like so much of the island.
Our deposit was returned in about 10 days. No problems except for the internet thing and they fixed it within 24 hours."

"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."

"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!"
