Perfect for Everyone!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect spot for us! This house has everything -- Home away from Home. Easy access from Fort Myers airport. The owners have thought of everything and were so welcoming. We had our grown children visit -- and they had such a great time. But, we also had our elderly Moms visit -- and they also had a great time. Many options -- beach, biking, hot tub, pool, golf, sunset cruises, long walks, great restaurants, playing cards by the pool and an awesome kitchen to cook delicious meals. And even UBERs to Fort Myers for those that like the night life. Our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel fit right in and the area was perfect for her too. This is a gem. We will be going back again next year!

Sanibel Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This property simply stated is gorgeous. The grounds are perfectly maintained, clean and oh so comfortable. The house has ample room for 12 guests albeit we were a smaller group. The view over the canal is a beautiful way to being or end your day. Sanibel Marina is only 7 mins by water and easy to locate. Boats are available for rental and Grandma Dot's Seaside Saloon is at the marina for after boating lunch. The private access beach is only a short drive away but worth the trip. The owners of this home have thought of everything don't bother packing chairs, towels or an umbrella they have it ALL. Don't miss the opportunity to experience this Sanibel retreat.

Relax in luxury

  • 5 of 5

The spacious rooms in this home are comfortable and luxurious. I did not want to come out of this gourmet kitchen (shock-I don't cook) It has all the amenities. Shopping is convenient and the restaurants are plentiful...the seafood is fantastic! The beautiful beaches are 5 minutes away; but why leave home. Sit in the hot tub or heated pool, nature abounds in your own back yard. The sunsets are breathtaking. There are plenty of golf courses, tennis courts, parks and bike paths to explore, and the waterways are incredible. Whether to boat or golf that is the question. We are ready to go back again and again.

This home has everything you would need, and then some things you didn't REALIZE you needed. I have to second the comment on the bedsheets... they're heavenly. All of the details and appointments are thoughtfully chosen, and it's incredibly spacious. The rooms offer a perfect amount of privacy for couples or families. Being right on the waterway is a huge plus, as the area's wildlife and beaches are most fun explored by boat! Can't wait to go back and stay again.

Coral Sea

  • 5 of 5

It was a beautiful well appointed "home". I had brought many of my own things, experience from other properties, never used them. Bright cheery place. We enjoyed many of the neighbours we met walking the dog. We have vacationed in Florida for 10 years and did not know how beautiful Sanibel Island is.

Thank you Julie and Larry for sharing.

I have not slept better in such a long time. The room and bed were enticingly relaxing. The sheets were so soft, I wound up buying my own for home. The Host and Hostess prepared the home well and were very helpful. Loved the sunsets and the fish. Hoping I can stay longer next year!!! Beach is close and a local watering hole has beef on wick that I wish I had right now!
