"This is my third visit to this incredible property. The owners are wonderful to work with and keep the home in excellent condition! They upgrade the amenities and decor each year. The kitchen is spacious, beautuful and well equipped. The bedding and towels are always clean and of good quality. The pool is heated to a perfect temperature and very private with tropical vegetation surrounding the screened pool area.
We loved having bikes and a kayak. The walk to the beach is really less than five minutes and the owners provide an awesome beach cart/wagon to transport all the beach necessities. The sunsets are amazing! We saw dolphins swimming close to shore and saw manatees for the first time!!
We cannot wait to come back to this wonderful home and relax on the best beach in the world!

"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."

"[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!"
