Why Leslie & Jim chose Sanibel Island
We started renting this lovely cottage in 1985...fell in love with the cottage and Sanibel and in 1993 when it came available to purchase we didn't hesitate. It has always represented freedom, peace and a real vacation to us.
What makes this House unique
Every morning and evening we would take the short walk to the beach and totally feel revived and relaxed. Loved the southern exposure and big sliding patio doors that would always allow the cottage to be bright and cheery. This place will up lift any spirit. Perfect!

Great place to stay in Sanibel
This cottage is a great place to stay in Sanibel. It is a short walk to the beach and close to restaurants and shopping. The owners have it very well stocked and have lots of fun goodies for the beach. We enjoyed our visit and hope to come back for a return visit.
The cottage is lovely and the location is perfect - a short walk to the beach. Nice restaurants and shopping are only a short bike or car ride away. It is nicely stocked with essentials necessary for a beach vacation and the owners are wonderful. We hope to return to stay at this cottage next year.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a nice review!
Do hope you will stay again at our cottage
Everything about our week exceeded expectations. As stated, a beautiful, shell-filled beach is just a few moments away from this cottage. Leslie and Jim have a gone above and beyond to a sure that their guests are comfortable. Their attention to detail made this a very special stay. The cottage is stocked with whatever you might need from sunscreen to flip flops! It was so convenient to have beach chairs and umbrellas readily available. We enjoyed using the bicycles and making use of the bike paths on the island. Our stay was an A + in all regards. Highly recommended!!
A pleasure to meet you both and look forward to your return next year. Than you for the nice review .

Great Place - Great Owners!
We have just completed our 2nd stay in the cottage and have already booked our 3rd visit. The owners (Leslie and Jim) think of everything and have it waiting for you when you arrive. Highly recommend!
Thank you once again for your nice review!
We look forward to your next visit.

Comfortable, convenient—close beach access, well-stocked.
We’ve spent four Christmases vacationing in Leslie and Jim’s very nice, comfortable cottage. They provide nearly everything you would need—flip flops, beach umbrellas, beach chairs, beach towels. I even saw some sunglasses in the basket. Leslie also provides some condiments and pantry items—handy. We look forward to this vacation all year long. We bring our little dog. Our daughter visits and sometimes other family. We’ve made good memories in this cottage and on our beloved Sanibel.
Lovely Cottage/home on quite private lane with short walk to beach, bars and restaurants.
