"What a wonderful relaxing and peaceful place for our week's stay in Florida. We normally rent condos for vacations, but decided we wanted something different this time. The location of the cottage is perfect - on a dead-end street and only one house in on the canal from Lemon Bay. The views of the bay were fabulous. We loved sitting on the deck and watching all the birds, and we saw a manatee swimming in the canal. It was so peaceful and quiet - just what we wanted - you didn't hear traffic noise or other renters like you do when staying in a condo or hotel. And I cannot say enough compliments about the lovely owners - sure hope we can get together again when we are down in that neck of the woods next time. We highly recommend this cottage to anyone seeking a place that is charming and provided with about everything you would need."

"Stumbled upon this little gem while searching for places to take our honeymoon. We weren't really finding the secluded and relaxed feel we were wanting while looking at Sanibel and Captiva. We were drawn to the idea of no vehicles and shopping malls.
The house was in great shape. One of the only places with a privacy fence around the pool. The observation deck was a great feature early in the mornings and late evenings. There's even a little beach view. Don't forget first aid items! The local store is limited and very pricey.
While the preserve on the island was pretty cool we enjoyed the beach by the house much more. If you're wanting to rent kayaks I suggest Barnacle Phils over NCIC. The prices are better and more choices on the kind of kayak.
Overall, we had a great time. It was relaxing and the house was great! I think the best feature is the fenced in pool with the outdoor bed!"

Fabulous home in a great location to explore all that Florida has to offer.
"We are a family of four and have just returned from a fantastic stay in this fabulous Florida home. It was like home from home, spacious, comfortable and everything was there that we could ever of needed. The pool was clean and a great success with us all and we enjoyed the outdoor area for eating and relaxing.
This home is just perfect for exploring Florida. Nearby Sanibel and Captiva Island are a must. Island Cow restaurant on Sanibel is fun and serves great food at a reasonable price. We took a private boat charter with "Good Time Tours" just outside Fort Myers Beach and we can not recommend them enough. Our skipper Mike had fantastic knowledge of the local Marine and Wildlife and we saw plenty of Dolphins and Manatees very close up!!! Mike dropped us at a remote beach to do shelling and swimming and we also did a spot of sea fishing (both children caught and held Bonnet Head Sharks.
Disney World is just under 3 hours, we did a 2 day visit and Florida Keys also approx 3 hours. We visited The Keys at the end of our stay which was the perfect end to a perfect holiday.
There is so much to do and see in and around the area, too many to list. We look forward to returning as a family to do some more exploring!
P.S. You must visit Love Boat Ice Cream Parlour - 5 mins from the house and the best icecream!!!"
