Meh...NOT the most luxurious rental on Sanibel -- give me a break...

  • 3 of 5

Boy - did the description build this rental up to expectations nothing could ever match. But the price was set high, we dreamed it was true. Our "luxury" sheets were 100% Polyester, the pillows were so lumpy we couldn't use them, one of our handtowels was stolen from Marriot, the cupboards were so crammed with glasses, mugs, etc it was hard to get them out, the shower dial to turn on the water was clear plastic and wobbly, cluttered surfaces full of "decor", lightbulbs were out in appliances... I took pictures of all of this - but VRBO doesn't allow you to post photos. The cottage was pet-friendly - and we loved having our dog with us - but it turns out there are lots of dog friendly places to stay on Sanibel! This unit was tremendously over-priced compared to comparable quality (or better) rentals up and down the Gulf Front of Sanibel. We were paying a lot more per week than our neighbors. Washer/dryer was excellent in unit but some other white caps rentals (among other condos and island rentals) have them as well. Very limited cabinet space and it was full of odd bulky appliances like a "Rotisa-Kebab" machine? No room for a week of groceries. Oh, and the outside shower door latch is broken... the list goes on and on. Access to beach is EXCELLENT.
