"This condo was a little slice of heaven..absolutely perfect and exactly what I was looking for in a place to stay on Sanibel island. The unit is on the second floor of a 2 story unit with a shared balcony and stairs facing the ocean. I would sit out there and read and enjoy the sea breeze. The condo itself was extremely clean and brightly decorated. It was small but it didn't feel small, it was very open and airy. The kitchen had everything I needed for my stay, I did cook quite a bit since that is easier than going out with a 7 year old. All the pans, pots and utensils were new or like new. There is also a washer and dryer in the unit which, again, with a 7 year old came in handy!! The bathroom seemed new and immaculately clean, not even the tiniest bit of mold between the tiles! In the bedroom there is a huge king size bed that was quite comfy! Two televisions and free wifi also! There were plenty of towels for bathing plus two beach towels. There was also a beach bag that I used daily and several beach chairs and umbrellas. Truly...everything you need is supplied in the condo.
Outside of the condo, the beach is about a 30 second walk. Pure heaven. The beach was gorgeous with millions of perfect shells for collecting. We found hermit crabs living on the beach as well and the water temperature was warm. We stayed in August (low season) and there were minimal people on the beach. It was also baby turtle season so all outside lights were kept out facing the ocean. There were also cool little frogs that would come out after the rain as well as geckos and anoles. We also saw a snake one day (for all you afraid of snakes..he was small and this was a one time occurrence although we did search for him again on a daily basis, he could not be found. We thought he was pretty awesome). We spent most of our early mornings in the pool which was also very clean. We had it to ourselves most days (again we were here low season). I would definitely recommend grocery shopping in Fort Myers prior to coming across the causeway due to prices and it costs $6 each time you cross. So stock up before you get here. The island itself has tons of cute little places to eat and there are no major chains here. There are no traffic lights and no neon lights. This place is utterly perfect."

"I decided to treat myself to the "snowbird" life after 35 years of educating children in Michigan. What a fabulous retreat Karen, Tom and their beautiful Cherry Oaks carriage home provided for us. We had a blast and enjoyed all that Fiddlers Creek had to offer. The Walsh family are the best and go out of their way to make sure a fantastic stay is had by all. Their living areas are clean, comfortable, spacious and homey. I did not want to leave! Reflective times sitting out on the lanai watching the golfers and sunsets were among my favorites.
I made many new friends in Florida because I lived at the pools, tennis courts and walking/bike trails. Many of my new friends call and text me daily. I feel like I left a "home away from home" that was a memory of a lifetime. I loved the staff and everyone went out of their way to make sure a 5 star experience was had. I can not wait to go back next year! A brilliant celebration of life, new chapters, friendships and active lifestyle were received on a daily basis. Thanks Tom and Karen for sharing your little slice of heaven with a Kalamazoo gal who loves to see her son and sun!!!! It made the start of my retirement a very special time. I tried to sit out on my lanai when I came back to Michigan but it was raining and 50 degrees....just not the same experience....Life is good, especially when shared at Cherry Oaks within Fiddlers Creek. Thanks for the memories....I'm very thankful!"

"We just arrived back home after renting this condo for February, 2015 and it was "lovely". It was so well furnished and everything that you possibly needed was at your fingertips. It also was in such a great location to walk to shops, restaurants and just a block to the beach. The view from the lanai was spectacular with all the boats coming and going from the marina. The pool was beautiful and the people we met there were extremely nice. The owners were very accommodating and helpful for us. We hope to possibly rent this unit again someday in the near future.
Mike and Bev Freemark, Bloomington, MN"
