"House was nice and clean. Had problems with internet and power outages. Breakers went off during storms frequently. Internet was intermittent at best-very difficult for my hi-tech family. Enjoyed the bicycles and hot tub and the location was great.
Construction started on property adjacent to the home, so we were up early during the week days due to the noise.
Loved the kitchen and split floor plan.
Location was great and used the beach chairs and umbrella frequently. Really enjoyed our trip."

"We absolutely fell in love with Palm Paradise. The beautiful setting, close proximity to the beach, and the comfort of this gorgeous home made us feel really at home immediately. The furnishing and decor were perfect, and the pool area, surrounded by lovely flowering shrubs and lush foliage was a joy. There was so much space, along with everything you might need and so much more. We enjoyed the beach equipment and the bikes, and early mornings and evenings spent on the terrace lazing on the wicker chairs was so nice. A lovely spot for listening to the birds or reading.
We found the wildlife fascinating - birds, lizards, frogs, occasional snake (harmless) not to mention the ibis, great egret and cardinals that visited. Osprey circled above frequently.
We were lucky enough to spot a bobcat one night as we returned from a restaurant, and at J N Ding Darling and the Bailey Tract, we saw alligators and racoons.
The photos of the house don't show how spacious it really is and I can honestly say that having rented many homes on Sanibel and Captiva, including one very expensive Captiva beach house, this house is our favourite. It was a joy to spend time there and I really hope we will return. It was well worth the nine hour plus flight!"

"We loved everything about our stay! We even met new people and had a BBQ at the home and there was plenty of room for all! House has a beautiful Florida style feel with white wicker and everything is kept up nicely!! Quick walk to the beach or pool instead, we did it all! They even supplied us with bicycles which was a nice added touch! Even the tour boat ride was informative and beautiful. I didn't know all the different birds they have there compared to where we live on the opposite coast. The Island Cow & Doc Fords where great places to eat. What more can I say we absolutely loved our stay and can't wait to go again!! I like how quiet it is there a true retreat from the hustle bustle!! Highly recommend this house and area!"

"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."
