We had an incredible month in the tropical jungle paradise at Coconut Hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

We just love this home! It's decor is bright and beachy! We love the tropical plants and orchids on the deck and hanging off the palm trees! We were visited by a large turtle and a bobcat that were outside the screened house area. It just added to our stay.

Sanibel Hideaway Dream Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

I love this property. It's perfect for my husband, daughter and I. A lot of attention is paid to detail in the furnishing and decorating of the home. The living area inside is a lovely beach feeling living - dining - kitchen that runs the length of the house. The high ceilings are lovely. The outside living space - the lanai - overlooks the pool. It's where we dined most evenings.

We made use of the outdoor grill for a lot of our meals. The kitchen was well appointed in small conveniences such as a Keurig and drip coffee maker.

The lanai and pool are caged and the whole area is surrounded by majestic palms and foliage. Hideaway is the perfect word to describe the home. It has a private aura that I love coming from a very busy place. I walked most mornings on the beach which is a 5 minute walk from the house. Sunsets are spectacular on the beach. Bikes are available at the house. There are numerous paths on which to enjoy them.

I recommend The Lazy Flamingo for dining - the raw oysters were the best I had on the island. I also enjoyed Doc Fords.

Looking forward to returning next year.

A Very Pleasant Stay

  • 5 of 5

A Coconut Hideaway has much to recommend it. The interior is comfortable and airy. Private too, thanks to the foliage surrounding the house. My daughter and I spent the hot April afternoons in the nicely-cooled living room, relaxing with books, a jigsaw puzzle or our laptops. We also enjoyed the available bikes which were in good shape and comfy. We loved the Sea Oats neighborhood which is quiet, unpretentious, and super friendly. It is a mere ten-minute walk to the beach from the house. It's a good location because the beaches on the west end are less developed and there is some excellent shelling.

My wife and I recently enjoyed a fantastic month at cocoanut hideaway as it is called in the Sea Oats addition. The house is a paradise oasis and we treated it as if It was our own.

The screen in pool, the beautiful Lanai, the short walk to the beach, the tropical palm trees and other foliage , makes it a place you never have to leave to enjoy yourself. Everything is kept up in excellent condition, it shows the owners take pride in offering their home to others.

We had our family down for a week and they all had a beautiful time. The bikes were a big hit!

We will be back next year and would love to stay 2 months.

Our Home from Home in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

When planning our return to Sanibel Island and considering where to stay it was a unanimous family decision to return to the Coconut Hideaway. The West Gulf Drive location in our opinion is the best on the island. It is an easy walk to the beach, a short drive or 20 minute cycle along Rabbit Road to Doc Ford’s (until it relocates!), and not far from Jerry’s or Bailey’s for the best fresh steak, fish and shrimp to cook yourself on the gas BBQ. This central location is perfect for shopping and restaurants along Periwinkle Way and in the other direction Captiva is only 30 minutes away by car at 30 MPH! The Mucky Duck and Bowman’s Beach is a must visit for sun set lovers, but on a clear evening the sunset from the local Beach Access #1 is just as beautiful.

The Coconut Hideaway is a home from home – with everything you need for a very comfortable stay on this paradise island. For the social media addicts and those who want to keep in touch with their email and video web streams the free Internet access is more than adequate.

What more can I say that I haven’t said before, except …



Back to the Sanibel Causeway, Sea Shells, Sun Sets, the Beaches and Gulf Sea Breeze.

Back to Manatee, Egrets, Brown Pelican and soaring Osprey’s.

Back to Doc Ford Red Snapper, Grouper, Mojito’s and Pizza at the Great White Grill.

Back to provisions from Jerry’s and Bailey’s, and kayaking the Tarpon Bay Commodore Creek Trail.

Back to cycling Ding Darling, Bailey Tract, Rabbit Road alligator alley and West Gulf Drive.

Back to sunsets at Bowman’s, the Mucky Duck and Starbucks for a caffeine revive.

Back to She Sells Sea Shells, Sanibel Lighthouse and an Island Cinema movie.

Back to Among the Flowers for a detox and the coolest smoothie.

Back to the Island Cow breakfast and Pinocchio’s Ice Cream – need I say why!

Back to Jensen’s Marina where Manatee graze and Manta Ray fly.

Back to boating the Pine Island Sound, from Port Sanibel Marina to Cayo Costa Beach.

Back to spotting dolphin in the brackish waters breach.

Back to cooling off in the pool and grilling steak ‘n’ shrimp to complete a perfect day.

Back to the brief summer rain that bring tree frogs a chirping and out to play.

Back at our Coconut Hideaway, our perfect borrowed home on this paradise isle.

Then back home to the UK, Wokingham England, until the next time!
