Great location, cared for and clean

  • 4 of 5

We were very happy with this home and are considering a return. The whole house was remodeled and the kitchen was very up-to-date and efficient. It had everything we needed for a Florida visit without the budget-busting cost. It's walking or biking distance to a great little beach, a great little outlet mall, restaurants, a grocery store, a fresh Florida produce stand and many other things, and driving distance to all kinds of other destinations and entertainment. Owners were very responsive....had a couple of minor things we needed for the kitchen dropped off within hours and always answered our text questions promptly. Thanks John and Sherry!

Comfortable and accomodating

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I recently enjoyed a month-long stay at "Jacaranda". We found the home to be ideally located, allowing easy access via bicycle or foot to local beaches, an outlet mall, Sanibel Island, and a wonderful fruit/vegetable stand just down the street! The relatively small house is very comfortable for two people, and is located in a safe and friendly neighborhood. The owners, Chris and Sherry live nearby, and were very responsive to all of our questions or requests. All in all, we were very satisfied with our time spent at Jacaranda.

Neat, comfortable and very well located

  • 5 of 5

We were glad to have chosen this house to expend time with our friends for their 50th wedding anniversary. The house is spacious and comfortable. It was spotless and well decorated with very nice details. The location could have not been better. Instructions and information about the house were well organized and the owners were responsive and helpful to the few questions we needed to ask.

Near everything, clean, and terrific owners !

  • 5 of 5

This is our first time doing VRBO in Florida and we were not disappointed. The house was very spacious and the bed was very comfortable. It was fittingly decorated in a beach theme as there are many beaches nearby. We came primarily for Red Sox Spring Training but also went to the Edison/ Ford Estates, the Manatee Park and Sanibel Island. The owners, Sherry and Chris were always just a phone call or text away and were very helpful with suggestions about where to visit and restaurants to try. They had a binder with information about the house, menus from restaurants, etc. All in all, a very enjoyable stay.

Very good experience

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this home for two weeks. We had been looking for a beach property, but liked the location of this one and it did, in fact, turn out to be an excellent location...close to everything we wanted to see and do. The interior of the home has been upgraded, it is tastefully decorated, and would accommodate four people (two bedrooms, each with a double bed. We ate out about half the time and fixed the rest of our meals there at the house. The owners live nearby and were very accommodating and responsive to our questions/needs while we were there.

We definitely would recommend this property to others looking for a self-contained private property.
