A May To Remember

  • 5 of 5

My friends a I were visiting former co-worker and rented this lovely home for a week. The home was completely furnished with all the comforts of home and then some. We were but a few steps from the ocean and had our own beach chairs, towels, shoes and umbrellas plus our own little wagon to put everything in and when we came back to the house we had a lovely pool take a dip in and relax. Our stay was very enjoyable. Indy 500 residents. Remember RACECAR spelled backwards spells RACECAR.

Absolutely Awesome

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with our opportunity to stay at this home.

Our entire stay more than met our need. The location was very clean and comfortable and fit perfectly for getting to anywhere we wished on the island. The beach was very easily accessable and well kept, as usual. The Florida Room and Pool were also main attractions during the day when at the house. It was far too nice out to spend much time inside. And for the main highway to be as close as it was and still be so quiet around the pool area was quite amazing.

When plans were made to be away from the house, there was little trouble getting off the island at either the north or south end. Plenty of local attractions to keep one entertained, no matter the age.

With the Publix Grocery Store so close made covering those needs very convenient.

And having the option open to include our pets to stay took that extra concern of finding someone to care for them while away from home. They made themselves right at home as well and could not have been more well behaved.

We can not indicate enough how appreciative we are to have the opporuntiy to stay here. We can very easily see how one would be looking forward to their retirement years and having this a place to call home. Beside the great neighbors, it is in such a great neighborhood.

It is our hope to have the opportunity open to us again to also call this home for the few weeks we generally spend in the area for many years to come.

Many, many thanks.

Best Rental for a Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd year in a row at this home. I have searched many rental homes, but can't say enough about this rental. Everything we need from stores, to beaches, restaurants, and more. We went to Sanibel beach, Naples beach and Ft.Myers beach. The florida room is our favorite place and the pool is great. This beach home is truly our home away from home! Thanks, again for a wonderful stay!

Great Rental

  • 5 of 5

This home and pool rental has been the best one yet! Location to beach and store excellent. Price is excellent for a family vacation. Everyone loved the florida room and we spent most of our time there and in the pool.

I highly recommend this rental. We were close enough to visit Sanibel Island and enjoy some food and shelling there, too. Yes, I would stay here again, but I did miss not having internet access. Thanks for sharing your wonderful home!

Relaxing home away from home Gasport , NY

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this home for your vacation. It is perfect for couples or families. Walk across the street to the beach and walk for miles or stay at the house with your private pool.

Home is very comfortable , really feels like your own. Clean, great kitchen with dishwasher, washer, dryer, all the dishes and glasses, pots, pans, silverware, everything you need. Florida room is large and comfortable, we spent alot of our time there. Great neighborhood, friendly neighbors, very safe, and quiet. Bedrooms had plenty of room, huge closets and dressers, beds were even very comfortable and nice pillows.

Can't wait to visit again...Cheri...thanks for sharing your home!

Pool and location perfect fit for family.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this home during the week of Nov. 14-20, 2009 and had a wonderful time. Our family group consisted of 5 adults (one aged 79) and a 7 year old child. The best features of this home was the heated pool, the sunroom and the close location to the beach and the trolly (beach bus). The home was attractive, clean, and well maintained. The kitchen was well stocked and the stacking washer/dryer was an absolute necessity after a day in the pool or at the beach. The three bedrooms had plenty of closet and drawer space and there were extra sheets and blankets if we needed them. We spent a significant amount of time in the sunroom talking, playing cards at the large table, or watching others swim in the pool. The sunroom is stocked with pool toys, beach chairs, books and magazines. At first, we were worried about the 7 year olds access to the pool; however, there are two locking sliding doors between the smaller bedroom and the pool. Parents with inquisitive, handy youngsters might want to take additional precautions to prevent pool access. Also, we were at first a bit worried about the work necessary to remove and replace the nightly pool covering but our worry was unfounded. Two adults can quickly and easily handle the pool covering and it's worth it. After removing the covering in the morning, the pool was very warm and inviting. The walk to the beach is about 5 minutes and you can actually see a glimpse of the gulf from the sunroom. The property is described as having twin beds in one of the rooms. However, when we arrived we discovered that the twin beds were actually a day bed and trundle bed. It wasn't until the very last day that we discovered that the trundle completely unattached from the day bed and rose to the height of a regular bed. However the room is so small that there would be no room to walk between the beds. Also, the second bathroom turned out to do double duty as the entry way between the kitchen and the sunroom so it is of limited use during the day. A very basic item in any B and B, hotel, motel, etc., is toilet paper. Besides the partial roll left on the holder there was only one other roll in each bathroom for six people for one week. I feel that toilet paper is a basic necessity that should be provided in the cost of the rental. Our stay at this house was one of the best family vacations we have ever had. It was relaxing, casual, and soooo much fun. We made wonderful memories and we hope to come back again.

A short walk to the beach, to swim, collect shells, build sand castles, and watch sunsets over the gulf.... maybe even see some dolphins. Grocery and marina just 1 block away. Rent a boat to fish and explore the back bay. Restaurants, shops and water sports equipment rental nearby. Short drive to a state park, Sanibel/Captiva, outlet malls, Greyhound races, golf, a gambling boat and so much more.
