"[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."

"We had a fantastic time at your wonderful beach cottage. It contained anything we could possibly need, from kitchen utensils, beach toys, linens, WIFI and a Sonus sound system. The owners were warm and welcoming always and just an E-mail away. My favorite area was the Master Suite with a sitting area that opened to the pool, very private!"

"My family has stayed at this vacation home before. It's in a lovely section of Sanibel a few minutes walk from the beach. It's private and secluded by beautiful trees and foliage. The home is well maintained - the owners' pride is evident. This time I noticed the Lanai railings were newly painted and there was a new bistro set by the pool. We spent a lot of time on the lanai. I enjoy watching the birds and owls who have made a couple of tree bird houses their residence. We also spent a lot of time in the pool. It's a nice size and heated.
The furniture was in keeping with the Florida style, the kitchen had everything I needed. The beds were extremely comfortable. I would definitely return again - it feels like home as soon as I step in there. Makes for a very relaxing vacation.
My favorite restaurant was Doc Fords. And definitely a big fan of the beautiful sunsets. I always tried to time my evening walks to the beach to take advantage of that."
