"Enjoyed my stay in Sanibel last weekend. My accommodations were everything I expected! Whether you choose to visit the island solo, as a couple, or with an entourage of family and/or friends this home is for you. There are three (3) spacious bedrooms that include a private full bath for each; a spacious living room to watch TV in; a comfortable couch should you decide to start that favorite book you’ve been waiting all year to read! Just off the living room is a set of French doors where you will find four (4) colorful Adirondack chairs to sink into and admire the picturesque palm trees and greenery; all while listening to the sweet sounds of Florida’s ecosystem in your own private setting.
Don’t worry if the heat is getting to you – just walk down the stairs to where you will find a beautifully tiled in-ground pool and whirlpool where your body will naturally sink into.
Do you have an exercise routine you want to continue on vacation? Don’t worry this home has you covered. Equipped with three (3) bicycles for you to venture out on the sunny island with. Sanibel is bike friendly as they have separate roadways for bike riders and walkers. Oh, yes, I said walkers should you choose to walk instead. Waking up to sunshine everyday certainly set me in a positive motion and it will do the same for you. I really enjoyed my stay on the island in this particular home – it had all the amenities I craved and then some. I promise you won’t be disappointed, but I must warn you, this home is addicting!"

"[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."

"beautiful house, UNBEATABLE location, and fabulous yard. Our family spent time fishing on the dock, (Castaways marina is right next door for bait, supplies, and advice.), walking for miles on the beach, kayaking the bay and bayou, and swimming in our private heated pool. there is even a fire pit and Chip brought over a supply of firewood to use. We had the most relaxing and serene trip in years."

"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this comfortable home located near the quiet western end of Sanibel Island. The house is well furnished and equipped with everything we needed. It's just a short walk to the beach where we took a long walk every morning and is a short drive to the wildlife refuge where we spent most afternoons watching the spectacular birds. The owners were helpful in every possible way and provided many suggestions for the good restaurants located nearby. Yucatan Shrimp at Doc Ford's is delicious. We hope to visit again next year."
