"We are typically a crazy busy family, who runs from one event to the next. My intention for this vacation was to do nothing except relax and that was accomplished! I am a family member of the owner and we only stayed for a week and without charge, but what a week that was! My kids did not want to leave, and I did not want to leave. My 2 younger kids went from playing on the beach to swimming in the pool. And my 18 year old daughter went from laying out on the beach to biking around on the trails to communicating with her friends back home on her iPad with the free WiFi. The house is just beautifully decorated and has everything you need for a great vacation, from beach towels to pool towels to a fully stocked kitchen. Everything was provided which made my son happy because he has smoothies everyday and the blender there works better than the one I have at home! We visited one of the public beaches just to explore but we were very happy to spend the remainder of the week at the beach just across the street for several reasons, no worries about finding a parking space, less crowded, no charge to park, and easy to run home if something was forgotten. The privacy afforded by the huge lot was very nice as well. The kids brought their soccer ball and were able to play outside and run around. Sanibel is an amazing place to visit and if you want to be comfortable there is no reason to stay anywhere else!"

"We are getting ready to pack up after a wonderful month at Mango House. We liked it so much, we are booked for next year. We appreciated all of the suggestions provided by the owners for sights to see. Thanks to the bikes provided, we spent many hours on Sanibel's bike paths. We appreciated being able to lock up beach chairs to the beach access path fence and not have to carry them back and forth. The home is well equipped, both in the kitchen and on the bookshelves. We spent lots of time sitting on the screen porch looking over the Sanibel River and did see some alligators swim by. We did buy bike flashers for the bikes for the short time on Rabbit Road, which does not have a bike path. We found drivers to be courteous, giving way to the bikers and pedestrians. Thank you to the owners for making their home available to others so we can escape the winter of MI and enjoy Sanibel."

"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!"

"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!"
