About Kim Obrien
Kim has been coming to Sanibel as early as she can remember! We began bringing our three boys down to the island in 2007 and have enjoyed our stays so much that we decided to purchase. It is our goal to be permanent residents of the island, so until that time arrives we have decided to share our home and our love for the island with those who have the same level of appreciation! When we are not enjoying the island ourselves we can be found in Chicago Il with our three boys who keep us incredibly busy. Outside of school, we are usually at a hockey rink, thus the house name 'BreakAway'.
Kim Obrien purchased this House in 2013
Why Kim Obrien chose Sanibel Island
We have been looking to purchase on the island for the last 5 years. We were quiet specific regarding location, we wanted to be very close to the beach and also have easy access on and off the island as well as being so close to town, restaurants, shopping etc. This was the perfect location!
What makes this House unique
We fell in love with the architecture and style of the home. We love an open floor plan which allows for lots of space and easy entertaining. We are so close to the beach and everything Sanibel has to offer. The pool area and outdoor shower is absolutely fantastic for getting all the sand off after a long day shelling or swimming in the Gulf!

The perfect vacation house!
This house has everything you need for a wonderful vacation in a great location to experience the island. The pool is perfect and the beach is very close. You can rent bikes to get just about anywhere else you want to go!
Nice, quiet location
Nice quiet area of Sanibel and a short walk to the beach. We did use and enjoy the pool much more than we thought, mainly due to windy conditions on the beach most of the days we were there. Very accommodating and easy rental process.
Perfect vacation with little ones and grandparents.
The space was perfect for our family. We enjoyed the easy walk to the beach. Our kids loved the pool and were ready to move in forever.
Great house and location on beautiful Sanibel. Loved every minute!
Perfect for our family vacation on Sanibel!
Breakaway was a great choice for us. Kim was the best owner/manager ever ... always responsive and simultaneously both personable and professional. The property is within easy walking distance to the beach (even for a four-year-old and six-year-old). The heated swimming pool was a great draw and provided hours of enjoyment. The open living-dining-kitchen area allowed for relaxed and enjoyable family time. That grandparents could retreat to the master suite on one side of the house while children and grandchildren found their private time on the other worked well for us. The space is bright and comfortable and welcoming. We have a treasure trove of wonderful memories from our stay!
The home was beautiful and very nicely furnished. We especially appreciated the heated pool!. They home is in a quiet, well kept neighborhood and an easy stroll to the beach. Kim was very pleasant to work with and extremely quick to respond and resolve the small issue with internet one morning. The only drawback I experienced was there not being enough hot water to accommodate 5 adults in one morning. This would definitely not prevent us from visiting again. This home and Kim's kindness laid the foundation for an exceptional vacation.
Removed, and only seemingly remote.
There are no stoplights on Sanibel or Captiva, and there are no buildings taller than the tallest palm tree. Both serve as a reminder of what happens when we leave well enough alone. For generations, people have escaped over the three-mile causeway to a different pace of life – one that includes ungroomed white sand beaches filled with thousands of shells, great seafood restaurants, unmatched wildlife viewing and a family focused village atmosphere where only the absolutely necessary parts of civilization are included. Our home is ideally located 4 houses from the Middle Gulf Drive, cross the street and enjoy the beach! We are ideally located, close to everything... the local grocery store, 25 miles of bike / running paths, the best restaurants in town offering fresh surf and turf and everything in between as well as unparalleled shopping!
